Simon Ekpa, a well-known player in the Biafra agitation and separatist movement, has stated his support for the military juntas that currently govern Niger Republic, Mali, and Burkina Faso.
He recently stated his position on the probable participation of the Nigerian military, as discussed by West African leaders. In such a scenario, Biafra, he claims, would provide its support to the juntas.
On Monday, Ekpa, a distinguished lawyer and head of the Biafra Republic Government in Exile, divulged this knowledge in a video posted on his verified Twitter account.
Following last month’s military coup in Niger Republic, his answer has emerged amid growing regional tensions within the West African regional grouping.
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has requested Senate approval to carry out measures already agreed upon by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). The goal of this request is to bring stability and order back to Niger. This action follows a series of ECOWAS debates over the country’s circumstances.
As part of the resolution, it was resolved that military action would be conducted against the country in issue if the junta did not withdraw within a tight seven-day timetable. The much-anticipated seven-day ultimatum officially came to an end this past Sunday, capturing the attention of many.
Ekpa has expressed Biafra’s unshakable support for the juntas in Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso in reaction to the latest threat from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
“I’d like to begin by congratulating the presidents of Mali, Burkina Faso, and Niger Republic.”
The user emphasized their hope for a continuing wave of independence in Africa, particularly in West Africa, in an impassioned speech. In a gesture of solidarity, Biafra has stated that it is fully behind them.
It has been proclaimed in a forceful statement that measures are being made to combat the populace’s economic freedom and general liberty. The user makes the audacious suggestion that Nigeria spearhead a hypothetical military invasion of the Niger Republic, with Biafra promising its backing.
In a fiery speech, the speaker said that a whopping 70 million Biafrans support any nation seeking liberation from what they describe as modern-day colonialism.
