The Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL) has denied being in alliance with the #RevolutionNow protest led by the presidential candidate of African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore.
Concise News had reported that Security agents, on Monday, chased members of the #RevolutionNow movement out of the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos State ahead of the protest.
DSS had arrested Sowore over the weekend after he called for the protest against bad governance.
However, BNYL, in a statement issued by the Deputy Leader and Head of Operations, Biafra Broadcasting Service (BBS), Ebuta Ogar Takon, dissociated its members from the #RevolutionNow protest.
He noted that the people of the Southeast and South-south of the defunct Eastern region want self-determination and not a revolution for the betterment of Nigeria.
“Youths of the East would prefer to die for Biafra than Presidency of Igbo extraction, we value Biafra than their Presidency, to hell with them in the north.
“People of the Southeast and South-south of the defunct Eastern region want self-determination and not a revolution for the betterment of Nigeria.
“Rumors online of a clash between Biafra members in Odukpani LGA of Cross River State and Herders are just speculations. Our members did not confront herders with matchets and Fuel at Odukpani town before the police intervention,” the statement added.
