Decades after the pogrom that took place in the South East, the events that championed the war still existed till date via Marginalization, brutal and extra judicial killings among many others. In recent time, since the incarceration of the founder of radio Biafra Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the leader of Indigenous people of Biafra by the DSS under the command of president Buhari, series of peaceful protest has been ongoing by the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) to express their grievances for the unlawful detention, and flouting of court orders by DSS. It will be recalled that three competent court of jurisdiction have ordered for the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu of which the DSS under Buhari rejected.
This is the first time in history of democracy the Executive trampled upon the rights of the Judiciary, this is the first time the principles of separation of power lost its value-oriented, this is the first time the principles of check and balances is been neglected. Yet the worlds remain silent about it. It will also be of worthy to note that the Nigerian army have embark on a secret killing mission, a kind of ethnic cleansing, during a peaceful protest they will open fire to the harmless and defencless Biafra citizens agitating for their sovereign right according to the UN charter on the right of the indigenous people.
At least 60 Biafrans have lost their lives in the hands of Nigeria army, while dozens sustain injuries. All Nigeria Army has to say is ‘we did not open fire on them, they were hit by strays bullet’. Oh you’re using live bullets to disperse harmless and defenceless people? To justify our claims that the army have embark on a kind of Islamic mission with a sole aim of killing Biafrans, why has the Nigerian army not compensating the family of the deceased or pay condolences or even take care of the medical bills of the wounded?? Last Friday 22/01/2016, a young girl of primary 3 aged between 5-8years was killed by Nigeria army on a school uniform at ABA.
She is among the leaders of tomorrow, yet the world kept mute. Whoever that Support Injustice shall be put to condemnation. No matter what they do to intimidate the Biafrans, we shall not relent, the blood of all the people killed unjustly by Nigerian army shall seek for vengeance and Nigeria shall know NO peace until BIAFRA IS RESTORED. NO GOING BACK.
