The Biafra Nations League, BNL, has submitted that the people of the Middle Belt should not be added to the map of Biafra against their will.
Some groups in the Middle Belt have vehemently kicked against the idea of adding them to the Biafra map.
BNL National Leader, Princewill Chimezie Richard; Deputy National Leade and Head of Operations, BBs Media, Ebuta Akor Takon and BNL Chief of General Staff, Linus Essien, have issued a statement where they revealed that the Middle Belt played a massive role against the Biafran people in the civil war.
The group said.“The 1967 map which was adjusted to include Delta State remains authentic. The region of Biafra are people who shares common history and cultural heritage and not those who as a result of boundary influence borrowed few culture of the Igbo in Northern Enugu, Anambra and Ebonyi,”
“It Is against the general interest of Biafra to be dragging those who fought on Nigeria side as mafians. The Fulani and Hausa were not actually the people who fought during the war.
The group blamed other pro Biafra groups for failing to reach out to other areas of the Eastern Region to enlighten them about the struggle but dragging middle belt, adding “We won’t participate in the fight for annexation”.
