A leader of Biafra who has been leading a campaign for its restoration has tested positive for coronavirus.
Princewill Chimezie Richard, the National President of the Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL has tested positive for COVID-19.
The news was made public by BNYL Press Secretary, Richard Dianabasi.
Dianabasi said the BNYL leader tested positive because he received his brother who returned from Sweden days ago “and who also tested positive at a quarantine unit in Lagos.”
This comes as the group accused President Muhammadu Buhari of doing a video record for national address instead of a live address, adding that it does not depict the character of a good leader.
