The group appealed to the people of the Southeast and South-south regions to be mindful of politicians and campaign promises.
The National Leader of BNYL, Princewill Chimezie Richard, in a statement to Daily Post on Friday, advised the people not to “allow themselves to be used as political tools to kill people for selfish interests.”
Ohanaeze Ndigbo had endorsed Atiku on Thursday during a meeting of Imeobi, the highest decision-making body of Ohanaeze.
Ohanaeze said they endorsed the former Vice President because they believed he has restructuring agenda which they’re clamoring for.
But BNYL on Friday said that Ohanaeze ought not to have gotten itself involved in politics, adding that it endorsed a wrong candidate that doesn’t have Igbo interest at heart.
The group added: “Northern politicians, after this election, our people will totally be forgotten for another four years, and it goes on like that.
You will recall that that few days ago BYNL had warned Ohaneze against endorsing Atiku, explaining that an organisation like Ohaneze will be disrespecting Igbos by getting itself involved in politics or endorsing any political candidate.
The group, one of the loud voices in the long-drawn struggle for Biafra, also recently blasted Nigerian government for allowing Cameroonians kidnap indigenes of Bakassai, one of the territories Biafra agitators are claiming to be one of their territories.
