BIAFRA, NNAMDI KANU AND THE MYSTERY OF THE RAINBOW
Written By Paul Ihechi Alagba;

On Wednesday June 28, 2017, a remarkable incident occurred at Isiama-Afaraukwu Ibeku in Umuahia, Abia state, where millions of Biafrans had gathered to crown Nnamdi Kanu the successor of legendary Biafra warlord, Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu, and officially recognise him as the one and only supreme leader and commander of Biafrans in general.
Having been unable to make it to Umuahia due to some unavoidable circumstances, I had to hook up through internet live stream, as well as telephone conversations with some friends who defied all odds and stormed the Abia state capital to honor the IPOB leader. However, when my phone started ringing at exactly 12:15pm, I skimmed through the screen and discovered that its a call from a close friend who happens to be one of the attendees of the historic event at Umuahia. At first, I was initially worried as I pondered if the trigger-happy Nigeria security agents have gone gaga again. But my fearful anticipation was turned into an ordinary illusion as a rather highly excited voice greeted me from Umuahia. The voice couldn’t even allow me to respond before it shouted beyond the vociferous background saying- “Go outside now and look at the sun!”
I immediately peeped through the window of my office, but unfortunately, the weather in Igweocha(Portharcourt) is cloudy and the sun hidden. The caller explained to me afterwards that immediately Nnamdi Kanu stepped out to greet the millions of Biafrans who flooded his premises, a rainbow appeared in an unusual form, encircling the sun. This generated an astonishing exclamation among Biafrans, as pictures of the mysterious sight flooded the internet.

A lot of mythical and scientific analysis have been given to the appearance of this rainbow and it’s significant shape round the sun. Nevertheless, I’ve taken time to study the scenario, and the product I arrived at is something more divinely orchestrated than meet the ordinary eye.
According to the renowned Physicist and Jewish Philosopher, Albert Einstein – “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” It is this intellectual aphorism that gives some level of credence to my conclusion that what happened at Isiama-Afaraukwu Ibeku is simply a confirmation that Biafra restoration inarguably has a divine connotation. No matter how we tend to draw away the incident from a religious point of view, or scientifically classify it as a reappearance of nature’s tradition, thereby overlooking the circumstances that surrounded the mysterious incident, we all will definitely not get the message which is meant to rekindle our weathering faith that the Supreme Being has not abandoned his chosen nation.
Although neither I’m I in any way a fantasist, nor a renowned theologian, it is however certain to me that on Wednesday June 28, the heavens and the earth confirmed Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as an extraordinary human being sent by God for the sole purpose of liberating Biafrans from the shackles of the Nigeria state. God works in mysterious ways; therefore for anyone to say that what happened is just a mere coincidence or has no atom of divine ordinance is just an exhibition of ignorance and jealousy.
Meanwhile, I’ve been tempted to ask these pertinent questions: Why is the appearance of the rainbow not seen in any other part of Biafra Land other than at Isiama-Afaraukwu Ibeku, Umuahia? Why did it appear immediately Nnamdi Kanu stepped out to greet the uncountable Biafra activists who gathered at his residence? What is the significance of the rainbow encircling the rising sun?
These are some mysteries which cannot be hacked by deliberately diffusing the subject matter. The indispensable truth remains that Chukwuokikeabiama, the creator of the universe, has reaffirmed that He is the one steering the Biafra restoration project, and there is one loyal servant He is using to execute this magnanimous task of liberating Biafrans- which is none other than Nnamdi Kanu. Hate him or love him, Nnamdi Kanu remains the divine messenger destined for the restoration of Biafra freedom. The covenant has been reestablished between God and Biafrans just as God did with the Israelites during their liberation from Egypt. God and his archangels have taken their rightful place; They have positioned round the Rising Sun with the sword of truth, salvation and deliverance to protect, guide and defend the chosen generation as the trumpet of freedom sounds louder.
Let him who has ear hear this; Let him who has eyes see this- BIAFRA IS HERE AND NO POWER CAN STOP IT.
