Emmy-nominated international journalist and senior producer for Al Jazeera English in Qatar, Leah Harding, said she would continue to tell the stories of people in eastern Nigeria who she said were being persecuted for wanting to leave the country.

On October 21, 2022, the journalist who had on Instagram announced her resignation from Al Jazeera English, but she promised on Monday, October 24 that her resignation from the Qatar-headquartered outlet will not stop her from sharing stories about the people of Biafra.

Her response followed a tweet from a Twitter account @IPOBOntario, believed to be owned by a member or the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) leadership, which posted a photo of Leah Harding and said, “She had a lot to benefit from Nigeria and Cameroon, yet she left all that and stood for what was right.

“If half the journalists in the world had your character, the world will be a better place.

“Happy send forth to you @LeahHardingAJE. You touched a lot of lives without knowing”.

The United States - born journalist replied, “I’ll still be on this platform and will continue to share your stories, no matter where I work”.
