Amaka Ekwo who is the Press Secretary to pro-Biafra activist leader Nnamdi Kanu has said “Biafrans” are free to sing the Nigerian anthem, Concise News reports.
This news medium understands that the pro-Biafra activist was saying this in a reaction to a viral video of Nigerian returnees from South Africa singing the national anthem.
The returnees were brought home by Air Peace with most of them believed to be Igbo whom Nnamdi Kanu is clamouring a separate country “Biafra” for.
One Aisha Yaguda had posted a video of the returnees singing the Nigerian anthem on Twitter and wrote, “Biafra returnees at [the] airport singing Nigerian National anthem. Sunji maza.”
While responding to the viral video, Amaka said, “WOW! Yes, [they are ] Biafrans! Anyone can sing any country’s national anthem.
“If you have dual citizenship, you can sing more than one national anthems. If you are a resident in a country that you were not born, you can sing the country’s national anthem
“I hope you now understand.”
