In a statement personally signed by Engr Anthony Aniebue-The Administrator,Customary Government of the Indigenous People of Biafra,the statement reads ‘ As your Administrator,i want to assure you that our quest for self determination within the framework of both local and international laws is our inalienable rights as free citizens of the world .We are Biafrans by Indigenous identities but still Nigerians by citizenship ,however we shall continue to press for our right to exist as a people either within or outside Nigeria’the statement concluded.

The Administrator told the BVI Channel 1 Reporter that the Biafra case in Federal High Court Owerri being represented by Bilie Human Rights Initiative is specifically asking for an Order declaring that the Claimants(Biafran People in representative capacity) have the right to self-determination pursuant to Articles 19 – 25, Cap 10, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 1990, and are therefore free to exercise their right to self-determination for independence or any other political status of their choice .While the one initiated by Messrs Chukwukadiba and others asked for a compensation of N100 Billion and order directing the clearance of abandoned bombs and other weapons in their communities which FGN opted to resolve out of court.

Aniebue further stated that the case for Biafra self determination is still ongoing and cannot be compromised.
