Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has come hard on Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw for allegedly including Rivers, Cross River, Akwa Ibom and other states in the map of Biafra.
Fani-Kayode said it was wrong for her to come up with such map without seeking their consents.
A map, believed to be that of Biafra emanated from the social media account of the actress yesterday, depicting that all the south-south states as well as Benue and some parts of Igala community are part of the Biafra Republic.
Fani-Kayode said since Ms Henshaw had not come out to deny the report, she was being disingenuous and unduly hostile to Nnamdi Kanu and the concept and spirit of Biafra.
“She has made a point that appears to be valid but that point is based on a false premise. That premise is that the southern minorities would be compelled or obliged to be part of Biafra without their consent. This is false. It is not true.
“The truth is that each of the bordering ethnic nationalities, and even the Igbo themselves, must and will have their own referendum before going anywhere. It is entirely up to them what they do and where they go,” Fani wrote in an article he entitled, ‘Nnamdi Kanu, Biafra And Kate Henshaw’s False Premise.’
According to the ex-minister, “The Biafra originators are simply asking for their own country and for an affirmative referendum to give it legitimacy.
“No-one can be made to join Biafra against his or her will or by force. It appears to me that this is obvious.”
