(Do you think this is an empty threat?) Nigeria should vacate the Biafran territory before March 31, 2014 -Biafra Zionist Movement



Leader of the pro-Biafra group, Biafra Zionist
Movement, BZM, Barrister Benjamin Onwuka, has claimed
responsibility for last Saturday’s invasion of Enugu State
Government House.
According to him, members of the group took control of Enugu State
seat of power for about four hours after they successfully hoisted the
flag of the Republic of Biafra and some banners at the main gate.
He briefed some newsmen at the Nigeria Union of Journalists,
NUJ, Press Centre, Enugu, yesterday, where he claimed
responsibility for the invasion, which he said was primarily to reclaim
the old headquarters of the former Biafra Republic.
Onwuka dismissed speculations that the group was sponsored by
politicians in Enugu State, explaining that the major target of the
BZM members was to hoist the Biafran flag as a symbol of rebirth of
the defunct Biafra Republic.
He said members of the group, who were not armed and had no
charms whatsoever, were at Government House from 3 a.m. to
7a.m. before soldiers dislodged them, insisting that they accomplished
their mission.
He, however, warned that Nigeria should vacate the Biafran
territory before March 31, 2014, or risk a bloodbath , disclosing that his
group had concluded plans to take over total control of Biafra land
from April 1.
Said the BZM leader: “I want to let you know what happened on
March 8 at the Government House Enugu. This is to confirm the
true report about what happened. You know very well that since
January 12, 1970, the flag of Biafra has never rested on the
Government House in Enugu which is the centre power of the
Biafra people.
“What we did on the 8th is to reconfirm the independence of the
Republic of Biafra which we successfully did.
“We didn’t attack the Government House, but we captured it back for
the Biafra people. We captured it for four hours and there was a
battle between the Biafrans and the Nigerians and by 7a.m., we
retreated because we didn’t have any weapons in our hand, to avoid
any loss of life.
“The reason we did it was to show the Biafra people that the hope
for Biafra is still alive and that nothing shall quench the aspiration of
the Biafra people to be independent. That independence has been
resurrected. So the Biafran flag was raised at the Government
House on the 8th of March, 2014 and I, Benjamin Igwe Onwuka led
the operation.
“It wasn’t an armed attack on the Government House, it wasn’t
kidnappers as the police have said. It was Biafran people and the
Biafra Zionist Federation led it and I, Benjamin Onwuka was the
man that pioneered it. It wasn’t an attack on any- one, but for the
restoration of the independence of the Republic of Biafra.
“As I said, the raising of the flag at the Government House is a
symbol of the resurrection of the Republic of Biafra which we did on
the 8th of March 2014. “
Continuing, Onwuka said: “I want the Biafra people to know and
the entire world that the Biafra has been resurrected and no force of
arm could hinder this aspiration for Biafra.
“Let me make it clear. the states that will make up  Biafra now are
Benue, Kogi, Delta, Edo, Bayelsa, Rivers, Cross Rivers, Akwa
Ibom, Ebonyi, Anambra, Enugu, Imo and Abia and Southern Ondo.
“I thank God for this press conference to set the record straight that
the Biafra is independent now, because that flag that has been raised
at the Government House, Enugu.”
