The Biafra Nations League (BNL), a pro-Biafra group, has directed its fighters to erect roadblocks on major roads in the South East on April 8.

The group stated that it issued the order because the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu’s, court proceedings were scheduled for that day.

BNL, like IPOB, seeks to separate the South-East of Nigeria from Nigeria in order to form an independent country known as Biafra.

In a statement issued by its leader, Princewill C Richards, members were also directed to block all border entrances.

According to a statement issued by the separatist group on Wednesday, “Princewill C Richards, the leader of the Biafra Nations League, BnL, has directed its members to mount roadblocks and block border entrances in solidarity with Nnamdi Kanu’s upcoming court case.”

“The BnL leader also urged all militias loyal to the group in the Bakassi Peninsula to ensure that any oil worker defying the group’s order to shut down operations is apprehended on the specified day.”

“Richards said BnL will continue to threaten oil companies in the region unless they reach an agreement that includes stopping Nigeria’s 60 percent reliance on oil in the eastern end of the Gulf of Guinea; the BnL leader gave this directive today during a meeting with Ejagham supporters of the group in Ekukunela, Ikom LGA of Cross River State.”

“He stated that preparations are being made on the ground to ensure that they are able to outwit both Nigerian and Cameroonian security operatives.”

Ensure the safety of oil companies at maritime borders. Recall that a militant group suspected of being BnL members attempted to kidnap two French oil workers in Bakassi a few weeks ago. The group has vowed not to re-initiate hostilities in the Peninsula.”
