According to the BNL, most people are still unaware of why they are fighting for the creation of the Biafra Republic, and that the convention, which will take place by the end of July, will come up with solutions for how they should engage other areas at the grassroots.
According to the group, ignorance can lead to sabotage of the struggle, especially when people don't understand why you're doing what you're doing.
He claimed that the BNL is capable of sabotaging both Nigerian and Cameroonian maritime activities in the Gulf of Guinea, and that they have access to anywhere, both at the Ejagham land borders and the Peninsula, and that they can acquire anything they want through their areas of influence.
The group recalled the Marua Agreements, which were signed in 1970 at the end of the Biafra war between Nigeria and Cameroon over the Bakassi Peninsula and saw the defeat of Biafra as the main inspiration, adding that the BNL has everything it takes to destroy the Federal Government's presence in the Peninsula.
