A Biafra group, the Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL) has stated that referendum activities would begin in the southeast, on Monday, November 6.
Revealing this in a statement by the group’s leader, Princewill Obuka, on Wednesday, October 18, he said November 6, was chosen for the commencement of referendum activities as it marked the anniversary of the death of Philip Effiong, who signed the document signaling the Biafran surrender at the end of the Civil War.
He stated: “Referendum activities would commence after the event on November 6 marking the death of late Philip Effiong, who signed the Biafran surrender.”
According to Naij, the BNYL leader further slammed the presiding judge in the Nnamdi Kanu trial, Justice Binta Nyako, for threatening to withdraw from the IPOB leader’s case over some applications filed by Kanu’s counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor.
Having being infuriated by Ejiofor’s application, Nyako had stated: “If you don’t want me to continue in this matter, I will recuse myself.”
However, Obuka faulted the judge for making such a threat as he stated that she had a duty to get to the bottom of the matter and find out where Kanu was being held. He stated: “The judge is expected to move the court and cause proper investigation to ascertain whether he is being held truly by the Military or in hiding.
