Planned takeover of Enugu state government house, police dares Biafrans agitators
Enugu State police command has warned the Biafra Zionists Federation against its planned takeover of Enugu State government house tomorrow, noting that they will resist any attempt that will disrupt the peace and cause panic in Enugu Metropolis and its environs.
The President of the Biafra Zionists Federation, Barr. Benjamin Onwuka had come out publicly to declare that the group will take over Enugu State government house to relaunch the defunct republic.
“As far as the Zionists are concerned, there will be no compromise on Biafra. It has been established, we are not fighting for a new country, we are fighting for the restoration of the Republic of Biafra. The ordinary man in the street, go and ask him about Biafra.
“These IPOB telling you now about restructuring, what happens to those killed in the quest for Biafra under their umbrella? You abandon them, forget them, go and take money and then you say everything is okay. It is not possible. Republic of Biafra is non-negotiable, that is what Biafrans want and that is what the Zionists will give them” he told newsmen in Enugu on August 6.
