The power of non-violence being unleashed on Nigeria by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is currently hitting the Nigerian government between the eyes, and they are now in a wild panic. One of the indications of this was displayed by the Fulani police commissioner in Anambra State, Garba Umar, who showed lack of tact and understanding of the issues at hand.
He was responding to the IPOB call for a Biafra Nationwide Strike Day (which some also call sit-at-home), which will be coming up on Friday, September 14. It is to hold all over Biafraland (majorly in the places Nigeria brands as South-south, South-east and beyond). It means therefore that schools will stay closed; government offices will remain closed; marketers, bankers, transporters, commuters, and people of several other types of businesses, will stay at home and take a rest on that day. It also means that Biafrans, while sitting quietly at home, will reflect over a genocide agenda unleashed on by Muhammadu Buhari-led terrorist gang called Nigerian government. The Buhari gang has been executing its agenda under the guise of a military operation called Operation Python Dance.
It was under the so-called Operation Python Dance which started in 2016 that nothing less than 2000 unarmed Biafrans have been tortured and killed, dumped in mass graves with acid poured on them to hide their identity. So the major reason for the strike is simply, as made known by Uche Mefor, the Deputy Leader of IPOB: “We want to prove that nobody or mortal can quench, suffocate or diminish the collective will and the aspirations of the Biafran people. We shall demonstrate that legitimate power belongs to the Indigenous People of Biafra in so far as Biafraland is concerned. We intend to press home the fact that genocidal orgy of violence, tyranny, Islamisation, terrorism and hatred by the Fulani military machinery against Biafrans can no longer continue without consequences. 14th of September 2018 will mark the beginning of what is to come.”
In addition, he was not happy that: “To have the most hardworking race on earth residing in a country with the largest number of poor people is a demonic curse, an unmitigated insult and a disservice to our God-given creative talent” for which Biafrans must extricate themselves from. He equally explained that while Biafrans would be reflecting on the atrocities of Fulani occupation Army in Biafraland, they would not forget the quislings that urged on. Part of the reflection will be what to do to such people who betrayed their own people for money and positions.
Among them are Nnia Nwodo and five governors of Abia, Anambra, Imo, Enugu, and Ebonyi states, being the ones that connived with the Fulani hegemony army to bring the mayhem to their own land. The governors are Okezie Ikpeazu, Willie Obiano, Rochas Okorocha, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, and Dave Umahi respectively. Others include a certain Emmanuel Chukwuma, who is among many clergymen and government agents and informants called traditional rulers, who collected bags of money at Nike Lake Hotel on the night of September 15 from the government to keep mute over the Python Dance atrocities.
There is nothing suggestive of violence in it all since there is no way resting in someone’s home can translate violence. But what did we hear? The pot-bellied Commissioner of Police said they were battle-ready. The chief Fulani occupation force in Anambra, Biafra, said they were ready to do battle with IPOB. He was telling Biafrans – the same people his Fulani ethnic stock were working so hard to subjugate under British government cover – that he would save them from themselves. How laughable, an agent of an occupying force – which have been mass-murdering the Biafrans – telling Biafrans that he would protect them from Biafrans. Without doubt, his response shows panic and lack of gumption to understand the issues at stake, which a natural malady of a great number of Nigeria’s poorly-trained officials starting from their President, Buhari.
