A full fledged war has been declared against the nation of Israel by the Nigerian Islamic government. This is premised on the renewed clampdown of Biafran Jews in Biafraland, within the West African sub-region. Biafran Jewish adherents (Judaists) are being victimized and unlawfully detained just because of their religious identity, by the combined security forces of the army and police as directed by the Nigerian government. It is unfortunate that the Nigerian armed forces drawn from the rank and file of the recently recruited Fulani released terrorists of Boko Haram, perpetrated this heinous crime. Quite a number of the adherents which include children, women, men and the elderly were injured, arrested and illegally detained. Recall that on Tuesday 11th December 2018, large number of Jewish worshippers embarked on their annual peaceful religious procession in Umuahia, the Abia State capital. They were just singing, dancing and extolling Yahweh, helping to control free flow of traffic along the roads, when they came under army and police attack. It is important to state here before all the authorities of Judaism the world over, that during the combined security assault, some religious sacred materials like taliths of prayer and skull caps, were consficated and desecrated by these Islamic jihadists of the Nigerian security forces that carried out this dastardly act. Since when has peaceful religious processions become anathemaic? Catholic Church faithfuls particularly within Biafraland, have been carrying out religious activities/processions during Christmas and Easter seasons with absolutely no incidents of security harrassments. There exists no record of any ban on peaceful religious activities especially in Biafraland. However, the Indigenous Biafran Jews who are faithful adherents of Judaism religion were criminally descended on, beaten up, shot at with live bullets at close range, suffered varying degrees of injuries, arrested and illegitimately detained. Reason for this callous onslaught hinges on the conspiquous waving of Israeli flags, clearly and proudly identifying with the root of their religion.
Ruminating over the circumstances wherein Biafran Jews are persistently being persecuted even in their own homeland of Umuahia, the Abia State capital, because of their Jewishness and religion, it is important to bring to the notice of the international community, that this new version of Jewish holocaust is a replication of the Jewish experience in the hands of the German Nazis of 1945. The Nigerian government is steadily carrying out a systematic annihilation of Biafran Jews in Biafraland because of her unhealthy relationship with the State of Israel. The government is defiantly stopping at nothing in declaring war against the nation of Israel and all Jewish interests globally. This of course, calls for a very serious concern. It is without disputation that all that the Nigerian government is bent on, is to outrightly wipe out Judaism and anything associated with Jewish affinity in Biafraland and enthrone Islamic religion just like what is currently trending in the West African sub-region. It is rather ironical to state here that even the Nigerian Constitution of the defunct federation clearly has it that citizens have the right to freedom of worship and religion. Therefore, nobody can debar Biafran Jews in Biafraland from practising their religious ordinances, with annual peaceful religious procession as deemed necessary.
Now is the time for the Israeli government to fully activate the powers contained in the Jewish State’s newly promulgated law which empowered the Israeli nation and her parliament, uninhibited legislation and enforcement of rescue of all Jews in diaspora, undergoing persecutions. Biafran Jews are subjectively suffering various forms of dehumanizing treatments in the hands of Islamic occupational government of Nigeria just because of their Jewishness, religion, cultural heritage and ancestral relationship with the State of Israel. With the potent effectiveness of the newly promulgated law of Israel, her government is legally obligated both morally and otherwise, to come down to Biafraland in West Africa, in a definitive rescue mission of her citizens therein entrapped. This can be effectively actualised by vetoing the sovereignty of Biafra on Nigeria. The rascality of the Nigerian Islamic government has continued unabated especially when it sights the Biafrans proudly flying the Israeli flags in identification. This persistent persecution by the agents of the Nigerian government, is gradually aggravating reactions from Israel based on her avowed commitment to rescuing her people from annihilative tendencies as being presently witnessed. Tension is gradually building and the bubble must definitely burst.
