Despite Abduction of Kanu, There Are No Signs of Agitators Backing Down In Biafra Quest
By the time the combination of air bombardment, land blockade and starvation, among other acts of inhumanity had ceased, over 3.5 million Biafrans were killed in the genocidal war of 1967 to 1970. This number included those killed in the markets, hospitals and refugee camps. For almost three years, rules of engagement were blatantly disregarded and the people that committed this heinous crime freely walk around, unprosecuted.
Unfortunately, the killings have not been assuaged. If anything, it has exacerbated. There is no motivation for meaningful integration whatsoever for the victimized nor the punitive measures put in place for the perpetrators of the grievous crimes to want to stop. Since the world could not deter Britain and Saudi Arabia, the economic and religious interests that are fanning the embers of conflict, have elucidated monumental bloodletting till date. Still, we prefer death than settle for anything other than our own nation, Biafra.
As you read this, millions of us are being detained without trial in various prisons across the British contraption called Nigeria. Regardless, our fate to have a free Biafran state remains unshakable. There is no strategy that has not been used to intimidate, to see if our spirit will be dampened but we have strongly resisted them, insisting on our freedom.
They lied to the world that we are terrorists while we are not. It is quite apparent that the world knows the truth but yet continues to be an accessory to murder. They tried to divide us into South-East and South-South regions, simply to see if there will be success in crushing our spirit and killing the zeal of birthing a just and egalitarian society. Igbo Biafrans have remained undeterred, not shifting ground on the Biafra restoration project.
Africa is indeed not free and cannot be until Biafra takes her right of place. The continent is really in trouble. It has been under the manipulation of one colonialist master to another, the latest being China. Regrettably, Africans have been the tools used by the foreign invaders to undo their fellow Africans. In the case of Nigeria, the Fulani immigrants came, settled and as planned, conquered the indigenous Hausas. Now, the indigenous people are slaves in their own land. They are being slaughtered daily to keep the creation of a white man called Nigeria. Is this not the worst form of slavery and wickedness to oneself?
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), was abducted from Kenya and extra rendition to Nigeria against his will and International law. It is the belief of the abductors that by doing so, the Biafran agitators will back down but most disappointing to them, there has been increase in momentum which has left a chagrin on their faces. There is a definitive clarity that Biafrans are irrevocably in for their total liberation and that of their land. This is because to them, nothing matters more to them except life itself.
The innocents are being blackmailed and killed while honour and reward are being granted to the terrorists. It is therefore with a heavy heart, that a report was received from an investigative journalist, David Hundeyin, that the people ruling Nigeria are religious bigots with sympathy to Boko Haram and Fulani bandits, Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP), et al. Their singular agenda is to murderously push for the expansion via conquest, the land of the Rising Sun (Biafra). Shockingly, the message from the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to them could not have been clearer: that every man is born equal before God and before man, and that we are Biafrans till the end of time.
Nigeria is a prison and its unity, poisonous to Africa. The only option for Africa development, is the disintegration of the different nationalities entrapped therein. Biafra’s freedom is definitely non-negotiable!
