Biafra: More UK Parliamentarians Back Agitation for Biafra

In December 2015, two UK Parliamentarians Elliott, Tom representing Fermanagh and South Tyrone constituency and Kinahan, Danny representing South Antrim both sponsored a motion that read as follows: “That this House recognises the calls for the independence of territories that constituted the Biafran 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 motion received a boost on the January 21 2016 as Qureshi, Yasmin of the Labour Party representing Bolton South East constituency joined as co-sponsor of the motion. This brings to three, the number of UK parliamentarians sponsoring this motion.
