The protagonist of Biafra Independence Movement, BIM; and Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, broke the news to Vanguard yesterday, in Owerri.
“The people of Biafra have been admitted as the 46th member of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation, UNPO, an international body attached to the United Nations, the European Union and the United States of America,” Uwazuruike said.
Uwazuruike also confirmed that he has received a letter officially addressed to him, dated April 22, 2020, and signed by the UNPO General Secretary, Mr. Ralph Bunche, through his Foreign Representative, Ikenna Obibi Egeonu.
