Members of the Biafra Zionists Federation (BZF) on Wednesday morning made a futile attempt to take over the Enugu Government House.

The Zionists led  by their self-acclaimed President, Barr. Benjamin Onwuka stormed the Government House as early as 7 am with Biafra flags.

The group had earlier vowed to be at the Government House today, (Wednesday May 30) for the purpose of declaration of Biafra Republic.

Wednesday's invasion of the Enugu Government House coincided with the sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in honour of Biafran heroes who died during the civil war and in the cause of the struggle for the restoration of Biafra state.

A combined team of security operatives made up of the DSS, anti-terrorism squad, mobile policemen, SARS, among others carried out the operation.

It was gathered that Onwuka and about fifteen other members of the group were arrested, while others fled.
