NAIJ.com notes that Orji called for the release of all pro-Biafra agitators locked up in various prisons, as he declared that freedom-fighting is not a crime.
The group stated: “We are calling on the federal government of Nigeria as a matter of urgency to release all pro-Biafra agitators incarcerated in their prisons because freedom fighting is not a crime.
“If the likes of Maduka Mmadu, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, David Nwawuisi and different pro-Biafra groups’ members committed crimes; Nelson Mandela of South Africa is not supposed to be crowned and celebrated but scorned as a criminal and also Martin Luther King Junior, Mahatma Gandhi of India committed crimes.
“Time has gone when we continue to carry placards and receive live bullets and bury our own or detain our own.
"If Nigeria fails to release them, the day of reckoning for Nigeria is near.
“Thousands of our people have died unjustly, Nigeria military found strength in killing us but are unable to tackle any armed outfit like Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen killing and raping our women.
“We are opposed to peaceful restoration of Biafra because the Nigerian government doesn’t understand peaceful language.
“Because of the continued massacre of defenseless people of Biafra, Biafra National Guard will unveil her second agenda towards Biafra restoration.”
