THE Biafran National Guard, BNG, has expelled its founder, Innocent Orji, with immediate effect. The group said his expulsion followed due process and BNG would welcome his appeal should he feel unjustly expelled.
In a statement signed by Nsikak Akpan, its spokesman, the group said Orji was expelled as a result of his unruly attitude and demoralized dispositions. It noted that the continued detention of his wife for 14 years and counting has taken the better of him and his attention focused on the case hence he refused to abide by the ethics of BNG.
The group alleged that Orji refused to engage in activities of BNG and Biafra at large, choosing to focus on his life and that of his family. “Biafran National Guard’s Transitional Government continues to be overseen by the council’s approved leadership as agreed by the ‘full house’ of the Biafran Supreme Military Council of Administration on 30th May 2018. All adjutants are advised to maintain the status quo, while all personnel continue to remain disciplined. All adjutants must continue to transit this government to the best of their knowledge without fear or favour,” it said.
The BNG also threatened to stop Nigerian elections in all the provinces of Biafra should the federal government deny Biafran children access to West African Examination Council, WAEC, set for this year. “That BNG sees it as deliberate effort to hurt Biafran children who have taken education as the only route to a stable life. COVID-19 cannot rightly be a reason for cancelling WAEC when election is billed to be conducted in Edo, Ondo and Anambra where all the state population is expected to take part.
“That if the election can hold; WAEC can rightly hold; it is easier to hold WAEC than hold election going by the COVID-19 pretext. If WAEC is cancelled; election should also be cancelled, but should the government defiantly go on with the election, BNG will do everything within her military power to stop and enforce cancellation of the election. Occupational government of Nigeria is hereby warned to desist from systematic killing of education system because it profits Biafran children.
“It is common knowledge that Biafran students have always dominated in the application for entrance and external examinations and they always lead in the best 10 results of these examinations. BNG has never issued a warning without implementing it and records are there to prove it. BNG is filled with immeasurable bitterness and it would be in the best interest of everyone and the occupational government of Nigeria to abide by the orders of BNG and follow instructions as reeled out.
