Ahead of this year’s festive period, the Prime Minister of the Biafra Republic Government in Exile, Simon Ekpa, has issued security travelling advice to all Biafrans in Diaspora.
The Finland-based lawyer and separatist, Ekpa, disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday.
He warned Biafrans in the Diaspora to remain in whatever countries they are to celebrate this year’s Yuletide for security reasons.
According to him, kidnappers are looking for Biafra returnees to kidnap in exchange for ransom in Nigeria.
He added that Biafrans abroad should send their families money this festive period instead of returning to the southeast.
“Those telling you to come back for Christmas are kidnappers; they are out of cash, and their only hope is to kidnap you for ransom during Christmas.
“The Biafra government has warned all Biafrans in Diaspora to remain where they are during this Christmas for security reasons. Send your ticket money to your families back home; they need the money more than you risk your life going to Nigeria for Christmas.
“Terrorists will begin hunting for Biafra returnees.
“All the Nigeria terrorist forces will be hunting for Biafrans that will return home and possibly kill some of them;
“The Nigeria IPOB criminals will be ready to kidnap you since that has been their business.
“Staying In the Diaspora will help the Biafra Liberation Army and other Biafra forces tackle security challenges better as they will be less distracted”, he said.
