He claimed that if the Nigerian military intervened as West African governments were considering, Biafra would assist the juntas.

This was revealed on Monday in a video posted to his verified Twitter account by Ekpa, a lawyer based in Finland and the head of the Biafra Republic Government in Exile.

His response follows the recent increase in regional unrest in the West African regional bloc as a result of the military coup that occurred in the Niger Republic last month.

In an effort to bring about a return to normalcy in Niger, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu requested the Senate’s permission last week to put into effect resolutions that the Economic Community of West African States, or ECOWAS, had previously achieved.

A provision of the resolution called for military action against the nation if the junta didn’t give up power within a week. However, the seven-day deadline passed on Sunday.

In response to the ECOWAS threat, Ekpa stated that Biafra firmly supports the juntas in Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso.

The presidents of Mali, Burkina Faso, and the Niger Republic deserve some encouragement, so let me start there.

“I want them to realize that West Africa’s and Africa’s overall tide of independence must continue. We want them to understand that Biafra is supporting them.

“We are fighting for the total and economic freedom of our people. Biafra will support Nigeria if it decides to invade the Niger Republic militarily.

He said that “more than 70 million Biafrans are supporting any countries that seek to end contemporary colonialism.”
