Biafra group reacts as Asari Dokubo, Nnamdi Kanu clash

The Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL, has declared its position over the rift between the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu and a former militant leader, Asari Dokubo.

The group appealed to the people of former Eastern region not to loose focus in the Biafra struggle.

It said the struggle will not be distracted by the misunderstanding amongst pro-Biafra groups.

This was contained in a statement sent to WE4WEREPORTS on Tuesday by the Deputy Leader of the BNYL and Director of Operations, Biafra Broadcasting Service, BBS TV, Ebuta Ogar Takon.

The statement was in reaction to the loggerhead between former Militant Leader, Dokubo and Nnamdi Kanu over the last election.

He said that those who have nothing to offer in the Biafra struggle should not distract the movement.

He added, “I think it is time to stop blaming and seek way forward, to us, Kanu is just one man doing what he knows best.

“He doesn’t own Biafra neither is he commanding other groups, I don’t buy into most of his ideologies.

“But I don’t waste my time emphasising on the issue of his strategies because I am not perfect neither are we BNYL perfect.

“Some people have formed it as a habit to quarrel like market women just for their noise making to be heard, I had waited patiently waiting for many of them to provide solution to the freedom of our people.”

Takon, an Ejagham native of Etung-Cameroon border town, in Cross River State disclosed reasons he has been mute since this year.

“I went on a low key when because I was so disappointed by my Igbo colleagues abandoned the struggle for Vice Presidential slot, many of them left the struggle while some were on the fence, it shows they were not actually fighting for liberation.

“No through freedom fighter will abandon his struggle for political benefits, Nigeria has nothing to offer us, and because Peter Obi who was recommended by Jonathan whom the north detest, and pushed out, and because he is an Igbo, a Biafran they ganged up with INEC to rig PDP out.”
