Biafra: Motion in UK Parliament for Nigeria to Conduct a Referendum

The calls and protests by the Indigenous People of Biafra and other such groups, received some attention in the British House of Commons. In a motion called Early Day Motion 808 and titled Biafra Independence, Elliott, Tom moved a motion that urged the British government to support the bid for the creation of a Biafra Republic by urging the Nigerian government to conduct a referendum.

The motion which was supported by Kinahan, Danny read “That this House recognises the calls for the independence of territories that constituted the Biafra Republic; acknowledges the Biafran issue could be improved with the co-operation of the Nigerian government by offering a referendum; and urges the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to use its diplomatic strength to assist in the resolution of this matter.”

This time is more than referendum following those whose life were taken for the sake of the struggle. That could be at the starting point of the agitation. As the Nigerian government can not understand freedom in democratic society. Thinking killing cansolve the problem. Is when you people explain to him why restoration is necessary. So that next time his tribe be in power will take precaution should such situation arises. May God almighty bless those that have seen the pepper that were blinding the eyes of the agitator.

Biafra existed 5000 years before d zoo called Nigeria was contracted.

To crown it all, on the 30th of May, 1967 Biafran sovereign state became a reality.

Biafrans are where they are today because they were forced with arms to be there.

The rogues who did it have been for the interest of Islamic housa/Fulani and Yorubas has been identified the BRITISH now they owned up and want to make amend fast, nothing and nobody will stop them from reversing the trend by RESTORING BIAFRA TO IT ORIGINAL STATUS AS A SOVEREIGN NATION.

This news is just a figment of the imagination of this website. Biafra, we were told, was long dead and buried. Some of us still do not see the basis for this new spate of agitations.

They have had their fair share of the political space aside their inability to emerge as president of the Nigerian republic. And who will trust an over-ambitious race of its mould with political power at that level?. Here was a race which took the… Read more »

This is good development, been one of the most democratic nation that

respect rule of law. We are expecting UK to mandate Nigerian govt to conduct referendum which would be supervised by international communities.

All we want is Biafra or nothing less…Britain should do the needfull now and stop the massacre of nigeria’s murderous agents against Biafrans.


Yes!!! Britain as a father should do the needful and rightful than to send, support or watch her children’s blood the second time and this time, endlessly.
But before then, is it not good to talk on the release of leader a prisoner of conscience?


Britain do just one right let BIAFRA go!
