The good people of Biafra (Christians in Nigeria), for decades, have been seeking for their independence from Nigeria. Ranging from the time of the Biafran Warlord, Gen. Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu till present time that the people of Biafra has gotten a new leader in the person of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), worldwide. Years have come and gone, yet the voices of freedom from Biafrans kept on echoing and resonating peacefully around the world. These voices have waited for a long time for justice to prevail and for them to be rewarded with freedom at least, for observing the world’s laid down rules and procedure. But, they are still denied of their rights and justice in every facet of life.
There have been recorded countless number of massacres of the Biafran populace by the Nigerian government through its trigger-happy military. In spite of all the provocational measures the Nigerian government through her military has applied to see if the Biafran people would renounce their peaceful agitation, pick up arms and become violent, the Biafran people have remained resolute, principled and committed to the peaceful dictate of the internationally recognized ways of freedom fighting.
The deprived and embattled Biafrans have been massacred in their places of worship, during protest against government’s high-handedness and persecution, in their farmlands, in marketplaces and so on before the Biafran war till date.
Lately, the Nigerian government has formulated another means of reducing their number without any trace. This is done by the Nigerian soldiers digging holes in their barracks and burying the bodies of slained Biafrans. These are men, women, and children that did nothing. Some were poured acid and other deadly biological substance by the murderous Nigerian army.
The reports released by Amnesty International are there to lend credence to this claim. Genuine journalists around the globe can equally attest to this unadulterated fact. In fact, the Biafra situation is a truth confronting the world and needs a world power like America and other countries that has the interest of justice at heart to come out boldly and do the needful which is setting the Biafrans free from the forceful British created Nigerian country.
The world should, as a matter of fact, declare the independence of the Biafran people so as to set example to other nations seeking for freedom on how it is done. The wage of obeying laid down procedures for freedom is eternal freedom. Let the world uphold the laws they made and not to be mere spectators of evil. America should note that what is right is right and that which is wrong is wrong. If the freedom of the Biafran people is due, give it to them.
The Biafrans have long shown peaceful disposition before and after 1967 post-independence agitation till date but they are being ignored and abandoned like fools. Does it mean that the world wants and cherish violence more than peace since those who are towing the line of violence are recognised and their demands considered than those who are been peaceful. The first war should be a lesson to everyone reading this. Biafrans are more than capable of crushing anyone who stands on their way without any shred of doubt. These killings will have to stop. Instead of us to be dying day by day, it is better we all die once and for all in war. Conduct a peaceful referendum for the Biafrans now to decide their future. Heaven will not fall.
