BRGIE backs FG call for non-kinetic solution to Southeast crisis, issues fresh demand


Simon Ekpa, the prime minister of the Biafra Republic Government in Exile, says the government has backed the call by the Nigerian government on a non-kinetic solution to end agitation in the southeast.

He, however, made fresh demands from the federal government in a bid to restore lasting peace in the region.

The Finland-based lawyer and separatist disclosed this on Thursday in a statement reacting to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s approval of a political blueprint for the southeast.

Newspot reports that Abdullahi Adamu, Chairman of the All Progressives Party on Wednesday disclosed Tinubu’s stance when governor Hope Uzodinma and other stakeholders from southeast paid him a visit in Abuja.

Reacting to Tinubu’s position, Ekpa demanded that the release of leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, acknowledging the map presented by BRGIE by declaring referendum for the region, demilitarization of the zone and including the removal of all checks points are sine qua non to restoring peace in the southeast.


He added that the Nigeria government should acknowledge the 40 states that BRGIE curled from southeast by granting liberation to the region.

“We demand the withdrawal of all military and other Nigerian forces from Biafra territory.

“The Nigeria government must acknowledge that the Biafra government in Exile is presenting 40 states from old south south and south east and these states will be called United States of Biafra in line with the demand of Northern Elders Forum; to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally”, he said.
