A group of ex-militants in support of Biafra agitation by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has claimed responsibility for the hijack of a ship on Friday along the Bakassi Pennisula Nigeria coastal line.

It could be recalled that the group in the last couple of days gave the federal government 31 days ultimatum to release Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB leader and as well the Director of Radio Biafra, stating that the concerned Niger Delta activists were abreast with the incarceration of Kanu.

The Spokesman of the group who gave his as General Ben in this context threatened yesterday in Port-Harcourt that they would bow up the vessel with the expatriates, if the government continues to daily-dally over Kanu’s release.

According to him, they would not wait till the end of the ultimatum before showing their seriousness. In his words: “We can not wait till the end of the 31 days to tell the federal government that we are serious. The vessel and the crew are under our custody. And any noise, any delay from government, we will blow up the vessel and everybody in the vessel will go down. We are not interested in the country that owns the vessel. What we know is that the vessel was coming to Nigeria to lift oil”. We are not interested, once it is blown up, let the country and Nigeria resolve the matter.

“We are in touch with everything happening around IPOB leader, now court has denied him bail because of his dual citizenship, that he may jump bail. We also heard that the judge said he would rather give the matter an accelerated hearing”

“The group fumed, this is provocative, hence we did not waste time to go into action, we are in support of Biafra struggle. We will not retreat or surrender because the federal government might have taken our ultimatum as empty threat but we will surprise them,” he affirmed.

Also warned against act of sabotaging IPOB agitation by any government as that would attract grave consequences, he noted.
