Court Fixes Date to Hear Suit Seeking Biafra’s Independence

A Federal High Court Abuja has fixed February 25, 2019 for hearing of a suit seeking the actualisation of sovereign state of Biafra.
The suit was filed by Incorporated Trustees of Bilie Human Rights Initiative on behalf of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and originally began at Owerri division of the Federal High Court before it was transferred to Abuja at the instance of the Federal Government.
President of Billie Human Rights Initiative, Dr. Innocent Amadi, who deposed to the 13- paragraph counter affidavit averred that the plaintiff wants an actualisation of the sovereign state of Biafra through legal means.
“If Biafra is carved out of the present Nigeria today as a sovereign and independent nation, Nigeria has nothing to lose as it will still remain great and the giant of Africa.
“It would have abundant peace, progress, unity, strong economy, political, religious and cultural harmony that shall be without comparison within the African sub-region and beyond.” He said.
