Onwuka had been in detention for three years following his arrest midway into his live broadcast to declare the Biafran independence at the Enugu Broadcasting Service which he stormed and took over.
He added that this stand was strengthened by the diplomatic relations the BZF had established with America, the Great Britain and other western powers.
Daily Post quotes him as saying:
“The state of Biafra will be announced on March 15, 2017 by the Zionist Federation. I, Ikedi Benjamin Onwuka will be leading Biafra. I will be the president of Biafra."
