Why the United Nations need to intervene to achieve Biafra
The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG), has begged the global community to intervene in the actualization of Biafra agitated by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) by persuading the Nigerian government and United Nations.
The coalition made up of 52 northern groups, made the appeal in a statement by its spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman stating that the north has never experienced this level of exposure to criminals who attack, kill, maim, rape, kidnap, burn villages, target educational assets and kidnap students at will while President Buhari issues threats and promises that do not affect”.
“The CNG hereby resolves to call on our friends and the international community, the UK especially, to understand that our bilateral friendship is guided by the principles of sovereignty, promotion of peace and the standards that guide legitimate interference,” the group said.
“Hence, their intervention, exclamations and actions should not be drawn to discountenance the effort of the Nigerian state to protect citizens from violence and terror.
“We finally wish to renew our request for the global community’s intervention in persuading Nigerian authorities and the United Nations to facilitate the final actualization of the Biafran dream by the Igbo.
“The world should keep in mind that by far, a destabilised Nigeria will certainly threaten the peace and security of the entire sub-Saharan Africa.”
“In the South, gangs of armed IPOB militia, violent secessionists and an assortment of militant groups appear to sense a huge vacuum in the capacity and political will by the Federal Government to challenge them, which they exploit with disastrous consequences on the nation’s security assets and specifically on northern communities and individuals living as minorities in the South while the presidency wallows in deflecting the issue.”
The coalition however accused the IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu of inciting violence in the eastern region, through the Eastern Security Network ESN.
Since Nigeria remains committed to peace and global order, yet, our friends in the international community, particularly the United Kingdom continue to give haven to the very IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu, who again and again has called for war and genocide and his propaganda, campaign and directives instigating many of his followers to target and kill people and to loot their properties and violate their dignity and rights
