“The most laughable aspect of the British government objection to Biafra is the lame excuse of believing in the territorial integrity of pre-independence Nigeria. ”
“The British government can continue to speak through Nigerian Foreign Minister, Mr.Geoffrey Onyema as it recently did, but the fact remains discerning that individuals and governments of other countries now know the truth concerning the non-violence and peaceful nature of the IPOB and its activities which was collaborated by the recent judgement of justice Binta Murtala-Nyako of Abuja High Court. ”
