A suspected Biafran National Guard gunman was killed by Nigerian troops conducting Exercise Golden Dawn in Abia state on Thursday, October 28.
The victim was among a group of gunmen who attacked troops’ location at Amaekpu in the Ohafia Local Government Area of Abia State on Thursday, October 28, 2021, according to a statement released by Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director, Army Public Relations.
Videos circulated online show armed individuals claiming to be Biafran National Guards stating that they are preparing for war and on their way to free Biafran prisoners of war.

“The liberation of Biafra has just begun. Today is Day 2 of our glorious week. You can Biafran National Guards are already on the ground and they are on the move to go and rescue the prisoners of conscience – Mrs Onyekachi Orji and the rest of them.
This is Biafran National Guards, as you can see them, they are all on alert. You can see they are ready for war, war for the liberation of Biafra has just begun.”
The man behind the camera then approached a man in one of the vehicles, identifying him as the Commander, Gen Innocent Orji.
This is the commander, Gen Innocent Orji. Sir, can you tell us what is happening here?” he asked the commander.

“We want to tell them that Anambra election can never hold. We are going to declare the sovereignty of Biafra Nation”

“This is our military. Biafran National Guards are in various vehicles, ready to go and free the prisoners of conscience that have been imprisoned for almost 15 years. You can see them filling their vehicles.
“Saturday, 30th of October is going to be the redeclaration of Biafra sovereignty.”
