Another top politician of the United States of America, also an ex U.S Congressman, Hon Robert Dornan has renewed his call for Biafra referendum, with an affirmation to table IPOB's cause before the U.S Congress through his ex-colleagues and progressively press the matter to the United Nations.
Robert who served between 1977 and 1997, says that conducting referendum will enable the south eastern people of Nigeria decide their political future, adding that the ongoing agitation in the country will escalate into armed conflict if Muhammadu Buhari does not heed the call for referendum. Recall that his first call was made in march 2016, where like Thomas Marino, described Buhari as a renowned tyrant.
It could be recalled that Mr. Dorman was earlier quoted as saying, “I say, the Biafrans have known suffering and death and as a responsible witness to that holocaust and as a Christian man of honor I add my voice to those calling for an internationally recognized referendum on the future of Biafra.”
It was also gathered that Mr Dornan's noble stance and renewed call came following reports of extra-judicial killings as reported by IPOB and authenticated by Amnesty International, and also Fulani herdsmen activities in communities of south east region of Nigeria, with no single case of arrest and prosecution.
According to reports, “No single case of police arrest and prosecution of the band of marauders has been made by Nigeria’s security forces and this exposes over 40 million people in the south-east of Nigeria to the danger of extinction.
We are hereby urging other noble men and women of goodwill all over the world to wade into the Biafra case and support our quest for the restoration of Biafra.
