This claim was made by the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), saying that President Muhammadu Buhari is the brain behind the plan by the Norwegian government to illegally deport detained Biafra agitators in the country.
In a statement by Mr. Uchenna Madu, MASSOB leader, he said “the government of Norway is supposed to exhibit diplomatic and International maturity in protecting the persecuted Biafrans or allow them seek asylum in other countries instead of wickedly aligning with Nigeria to eliminate innocent Biafrans.”
The group disclosed that Norwegian government is ready to repatriate the detained leader of pro Biafra agitators in Norway, Lotachukwu Okolie, and his counterpart Onyedikachi Ani, also detained and said to be married to a Norwegian and has a child with her.
“They want to deport them by force irrespective of their correct papers, against danger warnings, even without papers from the embassy, and dump them as they have been doing at the Cargo section of Murtala Muhammed international Airport, where no eyes will see them.
“We continue to insist that Biafrans are not Nigerians, so under international law, they should not be sent by force back to Nigeria to be tortured and killed like many other Biafra agitators in Nigeria and those they deported from outside Nigeria,” he said.
