BIAFRA HEROES/HEROINES DAY: AN EPOCH MAKING EVENT
By Ekwenye Samuel
(For Family Writers)
Decades of years ago, Biafrans located in what today is called South-East and South-South in the British contraption known as Nigeria, have been seeking for an opportunity to tacitly express their desire for unfettered freedom from the shackles of Nigerian cum British enslavement.
It is indisputably correct to note that everything in Biafraland needs emancipation as the last SIT AT HOME Protest embarked upon by the IPOB family alongside other Biafrans who cared, recorded an unprecedented success. There was a colossal crippling lock-down of economic activities in the entire Biafraland which had grave economic losses to the Nigerian economy. The only verifiable business noticed on the roads and commercial locations within the time under question, were the movements and inventories of foreign journalists/observers who were fully on ground to get first hand information of the day’s exercise. I can speak authoritatively as a witness of what transpired that very day within my area coupled with concrete reports from other locations within Biafraland, that this year’s Heroes/Heroines Remembrance Day, was a remarkable success, quite astonishing in recent history.
The leader of the IPOB worldwide, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, ably assisted by a retinue of crack team of IPOB leaders within and outside Biafraland, had in their wisdom months ago, earmarked this years Remembrance Day as a day that would be exceptional, considering the number of Biafrans massacred at Nkpor, (not less than 300) by the murderous Nigeria security agents, on May 30, 2016.
It is noteworthy to state unequivocally here that neither Uwazuruike of BIM, career Biafran politicians nor the state Governors in Biafraland, wields the kind of power & influence, or command the kind of resolute followers our leader Nnamdi Kanu has. Nnamdi Kanu, ably deputised by Mazi Uche Mefor, the calm and authoritative voice behind the activities of Radio Biafra London for close to years now, is indeed an enigma, commanding millions of Biafran freedom fighters both within the enclave of Nigeria and Internationally.
When the Sit-At-Home adverts and announcements of the 30th of May 2017 protest were broadcasted on Radio Biafra, the political class within Biafraland dismissed it with a wave of hand but today, even the saboteurs themselves and enemies of Biafra, can testify of the potential effects of the exercise as clinically executed.
It is therefore an indelible record on the conscience of the people that:
1) The only supreme leader of Biafrans following the demise of Odimegwu Ojukwu, is no other person than Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, hence trashing the claims of some Biafran political morons and their surrogates.
2) That the opposers/enemies of the Biafran restoration project, judging from their antecedents, are primarily, the Biafran political class who are not just only egocentric but are daily being spoon-fed by their Hausa-Fulani cum Yoruba slave masters.
Every genuine and informed Biafran whether a youth or an adult going by the enormous and resilient sacrifices displayed in the last exercise of SIT AT HOME, is very eagerly and expectantly yearning for the restoration of his or her fatherland, Biafra, and anything that stands on the way of realising this noble objective, must be promptly crushed.
IT IS BIAFRA NOW OR NOTHING!
