Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL has decried the shooting of unarmed members of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, by the Police in Asaba, Delta State.
The Deputy National Leader of the group and Head of Operations, Biafra Broadcasting Service, BBS TV, Ebuta Ogar Takon, in a statement on Wednesday, condemned the shooting and the arrest of the IPOB members.
He said “Even as we are yet to understand the reasons for the protest, I must condemn the shooting of unarmed civilians, they are citizens of the east, they are part of the world, you don’t engage a non violence movement in gun duels simply because they goes by the name ” Biafra” a name that scares the government and the jihadists which they sponsor, its highly condemnable”.
ORIENTAL TIMES learnt that the group recently marked three years of its resolution known as “Ekukunela Declaration” made in the Ejagham speaking town of Ekukunela, in Ikom, Cross River State on 12 April, 2016.
Takon said the BNYL will not confront the police or any other security agencies in the Southeast and South-south “unless they sense us as enemies because we have been acting in accordance with international laws which corresponds with our Ekukunela Declaration.
But if the security agencies see us a threat and tries to fight our presence in areas of our influence without we breaching the law, then they are looking for trouble because the situation might escalate beyond what they thought, that is pushing us to go underground not knowing we have been underground for long , we will only bring out what we discovered underground since years of operations” he said.
