Reports just reaching Naij.com reveal that on Tuesday, December 22, various pro-Biafra groups merged to form one umbrella body and initiate what they named a “shadow government”
“All the ministries are located within the complex but liaison offices shall be opened in all parts of Biafra land, for easy coordination”.
‘‘The Supreme Council of Elders of Indigenous People of Biafra has approved a 24-member National Executive Council (NEC) that will run the government. The NEC will consist of the representatives from all pro-Biafra groups and all the provinces in Biafra land so that none will be excluded.”
’The junior staff officers of the CGIPB have commenced work at the Secretariat but the Director of Administration and Principal Officers of the Customary Government shall be announced to the public soon.
‘’The Biafran Government has taken off under Customary Law within the Nigerian Legal System. It is similar to the Sharia Government in the North. We shall not break any Nigerian law. It is a transitional government.
‘’Everything we do is legal. All the Indigenous People of Biafra are therefore advised to submit themselves to the authority of the Government of Indigenous People of Biafra headed by the supreme council of elders,’’ the statement concluded.
