Authorities of 4 Brigade of Nigerian Army in Benin, Edo state also confirmed the death of two IPOB members who were reportedly shot dead during the Biafra Heroes’ Day Rally in Asaba.

Buhari should create more guns, bullets and prisons because we are not ready to let go of Biafra because of his threat. We have been peaceful, and we will remain calm in our quest for Biafra restoration.
I therefore call on Buhari to release Dr Nnamdi Kanu and other peaceful Biafrans under his custody. 

Also call on International Criminal Court, International Court of Justice, British government, European Union, United Nations, International Meeting of Experts, Amnesty International, ECOWAS, and other Relevant bodies to fasten up their attention towards the request of Biafrans: arrest Buhari for genocide, free Dr. Nnamdi Kanu and Restore the Republic of Biafra.
