Uwazuruike-led BIM dissociated self from negotiation with Federal Govt; ...vow to actualize Republic of Biafra

Chief Ralph Uwazuruike-led Biafra Independent Movement, BIM, dissociated self from any negotiation to strength the unity of Nigeria and vowed to actualize the Republic of Biafra

The BIM, a former faction of MASSOB, yesterday, gave reasons it would not be part of any negotiation intended to strengthen Nigeria’s national unity and stability, but rather the one that will ensure the actualization of Biafra.

BIM said it had equally distanced self from the outcome of an emergency meeting in Asaba, Delta State and the one earlier held by the Supreme Elders Council of IPOB at Sheraton Hotels and Towers, Abuja, Wednesday, December 9, 2015, where they agreed that the recent demonstrations in the South-East were agitations for the right to "call ourselves Biafrans within the Nigerian equation."
In a press statement issued in Onitsha, Anambra State, BIM’s Deputy Director for Information, Mazi Chris Anierobi Mocha, said such discussions "with our oppressors have a sinister motive behind it," adding, "our position is to achieve a separate country with the name and tittle: Republic of Biafra, no more no less."
