The protagonist of Biafra Independence Movement, BIM, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has apologised to Igbo elders, Christian and Muslim leaders “for the unprintable remarks constantly rolled out from the Nnamdi Kanu-controlled Radio Biafra in London”, and emphasised freedom of faith.
According to Uwazuruike, “if an independent Biafra will not guarantee freedom of religion, to hell with it.”
He added: “I sincerely wish to apologise to everyone that has been affected by the incessant insults, abuses and blackmails from radio Biafra, London broadcasts or any other news channels.”

Furthermore, he acknowledged that he based the Radio Biafra London and skilled everybody that’s combating for Biafra in the present day, both instantly or not directly.
Chief Uwazuruike additionally accepted that in any respect sins they’ve dedicated in the middle of this battle, he (Uwazuruike) “is the one to be held responsible.”
He described as “most unfortunate” that one in every of his “trained directors is using the radio as a platform to insult and blackmail Igbo elder statesmen like Chief Pete Edochie, Chief Nnia Nwodo, the Church and Muslim leaders.”
Explaining why he floated the London-based radio station, Uwazuruike mentioned it was “to propagate the wrestle and the mindless killings and marginalisation of Igbo Christians in Nigeria to the world.
“It was these wanton killings of Ndigbo in Nigeria that made me to begin the agitation for Biafra on September 13, 1999.
“The struggle is still alive and in no distant time, Biafra will be a sovereign independent state because this movement has made tremendous achievements.”
He regretted that “none of those who engaged in insulting our illustrious sons on social media platforms were born during the Biafra-Nigeria civil war.”
