A pro-Biafra group, Biafra Zionists Federation (BZF) yesterday urged African countries to relocate their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in line with United States President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel.
Leader of BZF, Benjamin Onwuka Nsiegbe, said in a statement in Enugu that his group was totally in support of Trump’s decision.His words: “This is to declare that what Donald Trump has done by officially recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is right. We applaud and support him. Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and it has been there for almost 5000 years. So, the people of Biafra support Trump for taking this bold step.
“The opposition from British, Germany, France and others is unacceptable. It is hypocritical. Biafra people totally support it. We also congratulate the Israelis.
“Any country that does not recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will no longer buy Biafra oil. If you do not recognize Jerusalem, there will be oil embargo on any country that fails to recognize Jerusalem. That’s our economic embargo.
“We are, therefore, calling on African countries to relocate their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, this is to avoid economic conflict with us.“As for the other companies, Shell UK, Agip of France and the rest of them, we shall sack them from Biafra land and replace them with American companies for supporting Palestine.”
Onwuka, who also disclosed that all his members in detention have regained freedom after over three years of incarceration, vowed that nothing would stop his push for a total recognition of Biafra.
“We have been in prison since June 5th 2014, but I want to announce that out of all our members arrested that day, 11 have come out alive. Unfortunately, we lost one of them. The police shot him dead during our encounter with them at the ESBS.
“We have made several sacrifices for Biafra. So, the Zionists remain the leaders of Biafra. The next announcement Trump is going to make is on Biafra. “We are going ahead. We are now into diplomatic engagement, no more physical action, but we are not afraid of arrest. Biafra cannot be stopped,” he added.
