Prime Minister of the Biafra Republic Government in Exile, Simon Ekpa, called on Igbos in Diaspora to avoid travelling home this festive period, saying t. were high-security threats.
Ekpa noted that it would be safer for them to remain in their country of residence during this yuletide, than risking their lives to any part of Igbo land.
In his words:
“Those telling you to come back for Christmas are kidnappers; they are out of cash, and their only hope is to kidnap you for ransom during Christmas.
“The Biafra government has warned all Biafrans in Diaspora to remain w. they are during this Christmas for security reasons. Send your ticket money to your families back home; they need the money more than you risk your life going to Nigeria for Christmas.
“Terrorists will begin hunting for Biafra returnees. All the Nigeria terrorist forces will be hunting for Biafrans who will return home and possibly kill some of them;
“The Nigeria IPOB criminals will be ready to kidnap you since that has been their business.
“Staying In the Diaspora will help the Biafra Liberation Army and other Biafra forces tackle security challenges better as they will be less distracted.”
