The self-styled Prime Minister of the Biafra Republic Government In-Exile, BRIGE, Simon Ekpa, has called on the Nigerian government to dismantle and withdraw all checkpoints in South-East if it really  want peace to return to the region.

 

Ekpa who made the call while speaking in an interactive X space session on Wednesday, adding that the recurring crisis in the South-East region should be blamed on the Nigerian government’s militarization of the region.

 

The Finland-based Ekpa went further to clarify what he termed as the misrepresentation of the Biafran agitation, saying the only thing Biafrans want is lasting peace in their region and to achieve this, the Nigerian government should demilitarise the South-East.

 

“We are against the Nigerian state for militarising Biafra. Those claiming we are violent should blame the Nigerian state,” Ekpa said.

 

‘They brought violence while we defend ourselves. We demand the withdrawal of the military and dismantle all checkpoints in Biafra territory,” Ekpa said.
