"We are not part of Biafra" - Delta State Govt

Delta State
The Delta State Government, Wednesday said the people of the State are part of the proposed Biafra Republic, reaffirming their belief in one and united Nigeria.

The State Government in a state statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Chief Festus Agas, urged the people of the state to remain law abiding and go about their normal business without fear.
Agas in the statement said; “we object in its totality, the inclusion of Delta State without our consent in the proposed Biafra Republic.
This clarification has become necessary to avoid any confusion or misunderstanding regarding the status of Delta State in the renewed Biafra agitation.”
Continuing in the statement, he said; “while some communities in Delta state may have cultural affinity with the people of the South East , it is clearly a patent error for anybody or group to suggest or insinuate that Delta state or more specifically the Anioma people have been or are part of the South East that is supposed to make up the proposed Biafra Republic”.
Frowning at the renewed agitation of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign Stateof Biafra, MASSOB, for the realisation of independent State of Biafra, he said the campaign which has been in formal of rallies in the South East, often extends to to the South South State, notably Rivers and Delta.
