A Human Rights Specialist and Lawyer, Jonathan Cooper has raised motion that Biafra should be allowed to have independence as a Nation. In a post on twitter, Cooper said Biafra people have the right to secede from Nigeria and should allow them express Self Determination.
He wrote: “I read the US #DeclarationOfIndependence on #4thJuly. It’s a fine affirmation of the Right of Self Determination. But if the case is made for the 13 Colonies, others are also entitled to independence. #Biafra has a right to self determination from #Nigeria”.
