THE FIRST EVIL MISION OF THE BRITISH IMPERIALISTS ON BIAFRA
The role the British government played before and after the amalgamation and concoction of Nigeria is a great displeasure to Biafrans. We hate it with passion. Biafrans and other nations that makes up the present day Nigeria were living separately within their respective boundaries before the British colonists invaded the territories, and started the building of the country as a multi-national State with the creation of Northern and Southern protectorates along with the Lagos colony.
In January 1, 1914, Fredrick Lugard was used by the British government to orchestrate the amalgamation of Nigeria for ease in the governing of the colonized territories and for the economic interest of the British government, without any considerations what the outcome of joining people with different socio-cultural background might be in subsequent years to come.
Still proving that Biafra is never related to Nigeria, Sir Hugh Clifford the Governor General of Nigeria between 1920 to 1931, described Nigeria as a collection of independent Native States, separated by one another by great distances, by difference of history, traditional, ethnological, racial, tribal, political, social and religious barriers. His facts and analysis remains plain and proved beyond doubts that Biafrans are not Nigerians.
In 1952, sir Alhaji Tafawa Balewa made a similar speech to that of Hugh Clifford that Biafrans are not Nigerians in any way one can think of.
In 1960, Nigeria gained her independence from Britain after being made and enticed to live as one entity. Six years later after the independence, in 1966 the northerners started killing the Igbo-Biafran Christians residing in the north in their large numbers which latter, resulted to the Nigeria Biafra civil war which lasted from 1967 through 1970 after Lieutenant Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu declared the independence of the Republic of Biafra.
THE SECOND MISION OF THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT AGAINST BIAFRANS
When the three year civil war broke out, Biafran soldiers strongly resisted the invasion of the jihadist Nigeria forces, until the British pledged allegiance to assist Nigeria fight against the freedom of the indigenous People Of Biafra from Nigeria.
Lots of military hardwares were shipped into Nigeria from Britain and some other international bodies that pledged to help Nigeria defeat the Biafrans. As a result, the Nigeria forces invaded and launched a genocidal war against BIAFRA, which resulted to the massacre of over 3.5 million Biafrans. This has the record as one of the most brutal genocide recorded in the history of mankind. Millions of Biafrans, especially women and children were starved to death when the military with their heavy weapons blockaded all the routes to Biafraland.
The same genocide against Biafrans by the combined forces of Nigeria and the rest of their international allies is still very much in progress, as they have continued to supply Nigeria with ammunition in the guise of fighting boko haram, but which is being used to kill hundreds of Biafran Christians during rallies and peaceful protests.
We are no longer interested in the union and continued existence of the British contraption called Nigeria. All we ask for is the freedom of Biafra, and the release of our leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
