Biafra Nations League (BNL) has replied Adamu Garba over a comment he made following the death of Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.
Garba is a former presidential aspirant and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The group said, Adamu Garba and other Nigerians should stop rejoicing over the death of the Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, because they believe that the terrorist leader is not dead.
BNL said that all those rejoicing over the news of his passing should hide their faces in shame.
Garba had, while reacting to the demise of the Boko Haram leader, said the death is a lesson to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho.
Shekau was reportedly killed after a clash between his men and fighters of the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP).
He was said to have blown himself up to avoid being captured alive.
Recall that the Nigerian military and intelligence agencies are aware of Shekau’s death.
However, BNL noted that this is about the sixth time Shekau had been reported killed.
National Leader of BNL, Princewill Chimezie Richard, in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Friday, was reacting to a comment made by Adamu, mocking the APC chieftain and other government officials who are rejoicing over the news.
BNL said that Shekau seems to have many lives and resurrects whenever he dies, adding that if Shekau actually died, there was no need for the government to rejoice because the military failed to kill or capture him.
BNL said “there is no lesson to learn from the alleged death of Shekau,” adding that “Boko Haram is a small group in Borno, whereas Biafra is a nation.”

“If any prominent Biafran is harmed it would lead to regional unrest which may eventually turn to another civil war.”
