Leader Of Biafra Zionist Federation—Onwuka Released 1 Year After
Says he will be inaugurated as Biafra President on July 30
The leader of the Biafra Zionist Federation (BZM), Mazi Benjamin Onwuka, who was arrested on August 20, 2018, in Enugu by security operatives, has been released from prison after one year in incarceration.
Mazi Onwuka, it could be recalled, was arrested a pro-Biafra agitation and was later transferred to Owerri Prisons from where he was released.
Speaking at Enugu shortly after his release, Onwuka said he was not afraid of being taken back to the prison, saying: “I’m prepared to go back to prison again but it will be at their cost.”
He said: “I am happy to inform our people that our victory is here. I have always said it that they cannot stop us.
“They took me on the 20th of August, 2018, and dumped me at an underground cell in Aso Drive, Abuja. I spent 3 months and 4 days inside that terrible place.
“Throughout that period, I was fed with a slice of bread in the morning, a spoon of rice in the afternoon, and few lobes of semovita in the night.
“From there, they later took me to Owerri Prison where I spent 7 months, before I was finally released on July 1.
“The craziest part of it is that I was not charged of anything. When they brought me before the court in Owerri, the judge said that I jumped earlier bail granted to me.
‘’But I wonder how someone being held inside underground cell jumped bail.
“However, all that is now history; we are marching forward and that is why I am asking all Biafrans to turn out en-masse on July 1 for the inauguration of Biafra government.”
Onwuka claimed that while in detention, a meeting was held between him and President Muhammadu Buhari.
SPeaking on the acclaimed meeting, he said:
“At the meeting facilitated by the US, I told Buhari that there was no going back on Biafra.
“I chronicled before him all the injustice and marginalization Biafrans are facing and made him to understand that Biafra is a different entity and has nothing to do with Nigeria.”
On the controversial Ruga initiative, he warned that such would not be tolerated in Biafra land.
He said: “Nigeria Government should limit its Ruga, or whatever they call it to ten States. They include Zamfara, Kebbi, Sokoto, Katsina, Jigawa, Kano, Bauchi, Gombe, Borno and Yobe States. Any other place outside these ten is a no-go-area.
“We are sending this clear warning because this is nothing but another push towards the realization of the on-going islamization agenda in the country. We are not going to allow it from Southern Kaduna, down to the entire Southern States.”
Onwuka said that with the support of the United States and other countries, he will be inaugurated as Biafra President on July 30.
