I feels deep pains in my heart whenever I see my people being consistently murdered for just no cause by the Nigerian government Armed Forces. The hatred by the Nigerian government towards us Biafrans is simply unspeakable. Our youths are constantly arrested, tortured, maimed and killed for speaking up against injustice meted against them, their old women, men and little children. They kill Biafrans without trial at any slightest opportunity. This is one of the numerous acts of injustices against armless Biafrans peacefully exercising their right to self determination.
Furthermore, this evil contraption known as Nigeria committed genocides against Biafrans from 1967-1970 which left not less than 3million Biafrans dead. They were slaughtered like fowls without help in Nigeria and till today the killings have not stopped but still on going. When will all these atrocities stop in this concoction called Nigeria? That’s my question, but I know, Biafra is the answer.
It is no longer news that the Nigerian military murder armless citizens. The Nigerian government uses the security forces to kill and commit atrocities against Biafrans; and because the Nigerian military has been well exposed on the atrocities, the government has now switched over to use cattle rearers, Fulani herdsmen the 4th deadly terrorist in the world. They equip them with dangerous weapons to terrorise people, slaughter thereby sending young Biafrans and children to early graves.
Recall, that the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari made an unbelievable statement in 2013 that “Fight Against Boko Haram terrorists is Fight Against the North” (which simply means that the Northern part of Nigeria is nicknamed “land of terrorism” by that statement by the dictator- Buhari. Recall again that in 2017, the Nigerian government in an attempt to cover up their atrocities committed against Biafrans hurriedly and illegally proscribed IPOB as a terrorist group of which IPOB is not. Now my question is; if the Buhari led government of Nigeria could without shame illegally proscribe a non violent and legal IPOB that did not and has not killed one single person since they started their peaceful agitation for Biafra Republic, why has the Buhari government not proscribed Fulani herdsmen, Boko Haram and ISIS that have maimed, killed thousands of people and are still causing havoc, killing innocent citizens and peaceful Farmers in their various communities? Why?
The question above deserves an answer from the Buhari led government.
It will interest you to note that Buhari and his government have never for one day condemned any cruel act committed against innocent Biafran citizens by these murderous Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram terrorists.
Finally, I urge all Biafrans to stand up and defend themselves against these demonic forces, boko haram, Fulani herdsmen, the Nigerian government is using to terrorise unarmed Biafrans across Biafra land. It is no longer news that Fulani herdsmen and boko haram are working for the Federal government of Nigeria.
I also urge all well meaning Nigerians and the International Community to rise up in defence of Biafrans and also speak against injustices meted on peaceful Biafrans exercising their right to self determination.
