The Biafra National Guard (BNG) has proclaimed that it is combat-ready and will not be intimidated by Nigerian soldiers.
The fighters displayed what look to be missiles dubbed ‘Red Devil 01’ in a propaganda video posted on Facebook Tuesday night.
The alleged weapons were painted in colors associated with Biafra, including black, green, red, and yellow.
In his remarks, BNG self-acclaimed leader, ‘General’ Innocent Orji stated that “Biafra is real”.
“We have re-declared the sovereignty of the Biafra nation; we have hoisted our flag. I and my men will defend Biafra with the last drop of our blood no matter what.
“We will be going out to defend our nation and boundaries, we are not afraid of the soldiers. We must do the needful. The support of the people will help us to save more lives.
“This is not 1967, we have our strategies. We won’t tell the people what we are going to do. Nigerian soldiers can never defeat us”, he said.
The footage was posted days after troops under Exercise GOLDEN DAWN in the South-East eliminated one BNG member and arrested another after a shootout.
Last week, the Army dismissed claims that the Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI) and the Department of State Services (DSS) created the BNG to discredit the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
