Dot in Nigerian map: BNL, Nnamdi Kanu reply Buhari, name Biafran states

Newsie Events Media :

Reactions has continued to trail President Muhammadu Buhari over his recent statement regarding the South-Eastern part of the country which he described as a dot in a map and vowed to send army to deal with the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB).

Biafra Nations League, BNL, while reacting over Mr President’s comments, tackled him for trying to limit Biafra to five Southeast States alone.

The BNL Leader, Prince Chimezie Richard, in a statement to DAILY POST on Sunday, said that Buhari was very much aware that Igbos dominate and are Indigenes of states in the South South.

During his interview with Arise TV, Buhari had also said that if South East secedes, the region, ‘a dot in the circle’, has ‘access to no where.’

The BNL leader said it has “access to many places in the South East and South South, including access to acquire anything through Bakassi Peninsula.”

He vowed that the group will frustrate the Nigerian government presence in the region, adding that the group whose members are mostly indigenes of border towns in Cross River, Akwa Ibom and Bakassi Peninsula is fighting for the same Biafra which IPOB or MASSOB is fighting for.

Nnamdi Kanu, the IPOB leader, on his own, said that there was no way Igbos in Kogi, Benue, Cross River, Edo, Bayelsa, Delta, Rivers would be left behind when seceding from Nigeria.

Kanu said that the region may be a small dot in the map, but big people.

He tweeted, “I’m compelled to accept the 5 Igbo states (SE) as Biafra, what will be the fate of indigenous Igbo people gerrymandered into other states like Edo, Kogi, Benue, Cross River, Rivers, Benue, Bayelsa and Delta states? Does it mean they are no longer Igbo? Small Dot, Big People.”
