Estranged Deputy-Leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Uche Mefor, says contrary to “the lies flying about” that Biafra is coming in 2023, a sovereign nation of Biafra will not be actualised in 2023.
Newsbreak.ng reports that according to Mefor, although the Biafra goal will be achieved, “but not now and not even in 2023”.
This news medium observed that Diaspora-based separatist, Simon Ekpa, has been sermonising about the coming of Biafra in 2023 via his social media handles.
Detained IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, had earlier bragged that a Biafra nation will emerge in 2020. It turned out to be fanciful.
But Mefor said the cause was not achieved due to insufficient efforts, as well as the ‘criminalisation’ of the Biafra agitation “by the same people telling you that Biafra is going to come in 2023”.
“There are trending lies flying about, that Biafra is coming in 2023. Well, we want to put it across to you, put it down there, somewhere, just like we told you that Biafra was not coming in 2020, we want to reiterate: Biafra is not coming in 2023, because there are a lot of works that have to be put in place before Biafra is restored,” Mefor said in a video posted on his verified Facebook page recently.
“It is also because the Biafra restoration project has been criminalised by the same people telling you that Biafra is going to come in 2023.
“You need to be at alert. A lot of work has to be put in place before Biafra is restored.
“You need to get it right. Biafra will come; Biafra will be restored, but not now, not even in 2023.”
