BZF Group Declares Republic of Biafra in Enugu, appoints Utomi, Soludo, Gana as Ministers

A faction of pro-Biafran groups, the Biafra Zionist Federation, on Monday, in Enugu, declared the secession of the ‘Republic of Biafra’ from Nigeria.

Leader of the Biafra Zionist Federation (BZF), Mr. Benjamin Onwuka, declared himself as the new Biafran President as he announced an interim government to run the affairs of the Republic.

Onwuka, who was detained, and charged with treason after leading some members of the BZF to invade the studios of the Enugu State Broadcasting Service in a failed bid to announce the secession of Biafra on June 5, 2014, also named ministers and other top government officials of Biafra.

Apart from declaring himself the President of Biafra Republic, Onwuka who briefed journalists in Enugu also named Professor Pat Utomi as the Foreign Affairs Minister.

“We have formed an interim government that will be in place till the next 30 days. The interim government will take off on August 1 and last till August 31, 2017.

“America is behind the Biafra people because former President Barrack Obama already endorsed Biafra before he left office and President Donald Trump will not go against it considering that it has formed part of America’s foreign policy,”

Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has been appointed as the Governor of the Central Bank of Biafra.

In the same vein, a former boss of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Ms. Arunma Oteh, has been named the finance minister.

Mrs. Aruma Oteh- Finance Minister; former Personal Secretary to Late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu Petroleum Minister.

Others are Amarachi Ubani- Information; Ohanaeze President, Chief Nnia Nwodo, Ambassador to US; Prof. Jerry Gana, Transport; Labaran Maku, Aviation; a lecturer at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Mrs. Mary Okafor, Trade and Industry; Benny Lar, Secretary to the Government of the Republic; Gabriel Oluwole Osagie, Education; Prof Barth Nnaji, Energy; Philip Effiong Jnr., Health.

It was not clear whether Onwuka consulted the ‘appointees’ before naming them as part of his ‘government.’

Onwuka equally announced that the Israelis would hold the positions of Defence, Agriculture, Internal Affairs, Inspector General of Police (IG) and Air Force, adding that they would also take 25 per cent of the civil service jobs in Biafra.

He said: “Israel will be key players in this government because there is so much corruption in Nigeria; so, they are coming to help us clean the system. They are coming to sweep the system. They will come up with agro-revolution and also abolish corruption very easily.

“Same goes for America; their companies will be in control of our oil industry. This is to reward them for what Obama did for us; Obama saved us even when we were in detention; they already passed death sentence on us even without our knowledge, but Obama’s intervention saved us.”

Onwuka also called for full mobilisation of “Biafra security forces,” stressing that “all our security personnel in the army, police, air force, navy and others are hereby called upon to withdraw from Nigeria and join the Biafra Government.

“I am also calling on the avengers, the militants to come out from the creeks and join us to defend and protect Biafra. I’m beckoning on Asari Dokubo, Tompolo, Ateke Tom to come out and join us. I am calling on all our boys in Biafra land to come out. I’m not afraid, the US is with us.”
