Biafra ‘cabinet’: DSS to invite Soludo, Utomi, others for questioning

SHARE:



The Department of State Services (DSS) is set to invite three ex-Ministers and some other prominent Nigerians for questioning, following their announcement by a secessionist organisation, Biafra Zionist Federation (BZF) as cabinet members.

On Monday, BZF announced the formation of an interim government for the Republic of Biafra, with one Barrister Benjamin Onwuka as the President.

Some of the people listed as Ministers at a press conference the group held in Enugu include former Minister of Power, Prof Barth Nnaji; former Minister of Information Prof Jerry Gana and another former Information Minister, Labaran Maku.

The pro-Biafra organisation also named Prof. Pat Utomi as Foreign Affairs Minister; Prof. Chukwuma Soludo as Governor of the Central Bank of Biafra (CBB) and Mrs. Aruma Oteh as Minister of Finance.

“Respected citizens such as these should not in any way be associated with acts of treason.

“Assuming that it was inadvertently or mischievously done, they have a duty to themselves and the nation to renounce such association.

“In this particular instance, we are worried about the deafening silence on the part of these respected citizens. What do they lose by renouncing their listing by the secessionists?” a top intelligence source told The Nation.

He, however, said the DSS would wait for a “respectable period”, before moving against any of them.

The source added: “If the silence persists, we reserve the right to read meaning into it, and that could lead to the law taking its course.”

Meanwhile, the activities of BZF had been placed under surveillance.

“We will not condone any act of treason anymore in this country. We have had enough of secessionist agitations under any guise.

“The BZF is under investigation and surveillance by the DSS and other intelligence agencies,” another source added.
