Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL on Friday alleged that Miyetti Allah and Boko Haram members control all arms of government and the military.
BNYL made the allegation while insisting that Miyetti Allah was plotting to “impose their loyalists” on the people of the South East.
The body was faulting the call by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, that election should be boycotted in the South East, come 2019.
A statement signed and sent to DAILY POST by BNYL leader, Princewill Chimezie Richard said the “leadership of the movement met in Calabar on the 28 September where they insisted that the people of the South-South and South East will participate in the general election.”
Richard warned people of the South East and South South of the consequences of the election and the boycott of consensus in the region.
He said, “It is wrong to tell our people to boycott election, census and every political activity in the South East and South South.
“Those preaching boycott are they ready to occupy the Government Houses and political offices in the East because I don’t see any sense after boycotting a Fulani loyalist will take over all political structures and use that to intimidate our people.
“Let’s not embark on actions that will expose to public ridicule. Biafra itself is part of Political activities because it involves political emancipation”.
On IPOB’s proposed referendum for November, BNYL said, “They should know that referendum does not work without being politically and economically in control of your land.
“How many Biafra loyalists are in authority, but you have the Miyetti Allah and Boko Haram in Government offices and they are in control of the Military, this struggle is far beyond agitations.
“Miyetti Allah are warming up to impose their loyalists on us in our region, and our boycott will only pave way for that, and when that happens we should expect more Python Dance.
“We can push those who are hindrances to our cause aside and bring fresh blood in using every means, we cannot boycott the political class in this struggle”.
He also said that even if the Igbos decide to boycott the election, the South-South are yet to be convinced as to what benefit will it add to the movement.
“Not all the Igbos have been convinced of what effect will the action cause, let alone the rest tribes in the South-South,” he added.
