Biafra: Zionists threaten suicide over missing leader, Onwuka

Members of the Biafra Zionists Federation, BZF, have threatened to commit suicide over their missing leader, Barr. Benjamin Onwuka.

DAILY POST reports that Onwuka is suspected to have been arrested by security operatives after another failed attempt to seize Enugu Government House on August 20.

He has remained incommunicado two months after the encounter.

In a statement on Sunday by the national coordinator of the BZF, Comrade Ogbu Gilbert, he said they had waited in vain for the Department of State Services, DSS, to either release their leader or charge him to court.

“We want to further inform Nigerians and the International community over the unlawful detention of our leader, Barr. Benjamin Onwuka by men of the DSS.

“It is now over two months and they have refused to charge him to court, contrary to the provisions of Nigeria’s Constitution, which says nobody should be detained beyond 24 hours.

“More worrisome is the silence of the security agencies, the South-East governors and Ohanaeze Ndigbo. We are beginning to think that there is a collaboration among them.”

He declared that “we are issuing a 7-day ultimatum, after which we have no option than to commit suicide. We shall occupy all the roads in the South-East and either get crushed by vehicles or have ourselves killed by security forces.

“By this statement, we are drawing the attention of the international community, especially the United Nations, the Amnesty International, the United States and Israel to the oppressive tendencies of the present federal government of Nigeria.

“We have our right to self determination as provided for in all international treaties and we are not ready to sacrifice it.”
