The UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, on Monday announced the formation of a committee for Biafra referendum, to help move a peace process between Nigeria Government and Biafra agitators.
The formation of the committee came after the diplomacy of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu to every part of the world.
Ndigbo News learnt that Nnamdi Kanu would lead other members of the group to the United Nations General Assembly slated for New York, United States of America.
The Media and Publicity Secretary of the group, Emma Powerful made the disclosure in a statement made available to newsmen in Onitsha on Monday.
It said the trip was something the leadership of the movement was looking forward to with great enthusiasm.
The statement partly read, “Regarding the United Nations General Assembly meeting in New York, we have both direct and indirect representations for the forthcoming events in the US. Our people are on the ground.
“If the right conditions which we are waiting for are put in place, our leader will personally lead our people; otherwise it would be on a later date which would be duly announced.”
