Suit No FHC/OW/CS/192/2013: Bilie Human Rights Initiative Representing Indigenous People of Biafra v.
Federal Republic of Nigeria and Attorney-General of the Federation: The Defendants in the above-named Suit pending in the Federal High Court Owerri Nigeria and the General Public and members of the International Community are hereby put on notice that Mr Nnamdi Kanu and Radio Biafra London and all indigenous people of Biafra who have followed him in rebellion and disobedience to the Order and Directives of the Supreme Council of Elders of Indigenous People of Biafra are not acting on behalf of (or by the authority of) Bilie Human Rights Initiative and the Supreme Council of Elders of Indigenous People of Biafra.
The Official Radio Station for all indigenous people of Biafra under the leadership of the Supreme Council of Elders is the Voice of Biafra which can be found at www.biafranvoicemedia.com.
We have heard a rumour that Mr Nnamdi Kanu and his followers have planned to wage a war against the Defendants in the above-named suit and disrupt the 2015 elections for the purpose of obtaining independence for the Biafrans.
In his Facebook publication attached herewith, he threatened to assassinate some Ibos and their families for supporting a Political Party he does not support.
We, the elders and leaders of all indigenous people of Biafra presently seeking independence for Biafra by the rule of law under the legal representation and advocacy of Bilie Human Rights Initiative, do hereby dissociate ourselves from Mr Nnamdi Kanu and his followers and consequently put a disclaimer on Mr Nnamdi Kanu and his Radio Biafra London which he uses to incite people to violence.
He and his followers are personally liable for any act they may commit in violation of the rule of law.
We, the remnants of the people of Biafra under the leadership of the Supreme Council of Elders of Indigenous People of Biafra, are law-abiding and are in no way to be associated with any act of incitement to violence or lawlessness whatsoever and howsoever.
All enquiries regarding this Public Notice and Disclaimer should be directed to the undersigned Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Council of Elders of Indigenous People of Biafra.
For: Supreme Council of Elders of Indigenous People of Biafra
(Government of Indigenous People of Biafra under Customary Law)
