Yesterday, 14th Sept, 2018 the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB registered their displeasure over the unwarranted invasion of the home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and massacre of hundreds of Biafrans by the occupational army of Nigeria at his home and the disappearance of both him and his parents since then till date, no one have heard or seen them, exactly one year yesterday. Biafrans, both home and in diaspora wore a mournful mood yesterday and shutdown their businesses in a sit at home protest against the occupational government of Nigeria for the genocides they committed against Biafrans last year 14th September, 2017 and against saboteurs in our land. Markets, schools, banks, transport companies, filling stations, offices, etc were completely shut down in remembrance of our murdered comrades last year.
Sept 14 has entered history as another day the people of Biafra proved to Nigerians, their government and the whole world that they love themselves and are united for this course. Biafra is not about Nnamdi Kanu and Igbo neither is IPOB a mere group as erroneously been portrayed by the gullible minds, but are all the indigenous owners of the land of Biafra. And contrary to taunts that the strike ordered by the leadership of IPOB might hit failure or partial compliance as it came impromptu (barely one month, yet, has recorded as one of the most successful sit-at-home protests ever held in the history of the world.
This is a clear indication that IPOB is the people, the people are IPOB. To confirm that IPOB is the people and the people is IPOB, they, despite all the threats and warnings from the Nigerian joint security force not to adhere to the order and their heavy presence in Biafraland against ‘IPOB’, the people defied their threats and obeyed the order of IPOB. IPOB which is the people shutdown their businesses and stayed at home. The people understood the tricks the Nigerian government was playing on their intelligence by twisting IPOB as a mere negligible peace-discordant organization as they did before and erroneously label the entire people of Biafra as terrorist group. Yesterday, the people of Biafra have proven their unwavering and total loyalty to IPOB once again and for Biafra restoration with this total compliance to the sit at home order.
It is worthy to note that it is not fear of being harassed by ‘IPOB’ nor to avoid any mishap that might resulted any crash between ‘IPOB’ and security operatives that made the people complied to the order. No. The conviction of the people to observe the strike is born out of genuineness of heart; deep hunger for Biafra and true commitment to the leadership of IPOB for Biafra restoration. The leadership of IPOB ably led by our supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is one, the people cannot allow anybody or group of persons to toy with.
I must say, the peacefulness of Biafraland yesterday and security of lives and properties cannot be credited to anybody but God Almighty alone, as there was no index in the first place that warranted the kind of influx of heavy security operatives in our land as we witnessed just because they wanted to disrupt IPOB order of sit-at-home. Biafra land has been a peaceful land and IPOB are also peaceful people.
Thanks to all Biafrans for staying at home and mourned our slain youths, mothers and fathers whose only crime was asking for our freedom.
