It was not a surprise to me when I stumbled upon the outrageous remark made by the Hausa-Fulani slave and prodigal son of our dear land, Joe Igbokwe, that Nnamdi Kanu should go home and drop the agitation for Biafra a day after he (Kanu) was released from detention; i thought to myself how ridiculous and nauseating he must be. He does not deserve any publicity at the expense of the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and the Biafra issue in general.
I also read the purported published statement of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by some unscrupulous media outlets which says he has abandoned the Biafra restoration project for the politics of a country he vowed to destroy with truth; I couldn’t help but laugh at the concocted news as feeble and incongruous. How ignorant people have become, they easily forget how difficult it is to cut down an iroko tree towering above the whole place.
Mazi Nnamdi has resolved that it is “Biafra or Death!’ He has repeatedly refused any romance with bribe or sweet talks by different personnel and dignitaries. He started the campaign on Radio Biafra, broadcasting and blowing hot, eventually his flame brought about Biafra awareness and reawakening to his people. When he was abducted illegally by the Nigerian government upon his arrival into the contraption (Nigeria), he never quivered.
Kanu previously had traveled and toured countries in search of revolutionists for Biafra restoration. Like Martin Luther Jnr, he broke the chain of falsified “One Nigeria” and harnessed his people from different spheres of the British establishment.
How then can he suddenly change his resolve?
A man who left his comfort zone abroad, not for business trip or personal gain but to pursue a cause for freedom and was arrested, detained for almost two years and yet he never betrayed his people.
This deliberate act can only increase the resolve of this hero. He was never convicted of any crime, there are no tangible or visible evidences to convict him. His stand have not veered, neither has he lost focus. The look in his eyes tell their stories, therefore, where are those folklores coming from?
Weak propaganda, lacking in weight and overwhelming witnesses only make a caricature of their efforts. Mazi Nnamdi is a lion, dominating his tribe, watching out for signs of threat, then he squashes it.
Such a one cannot crush his cause nor unmount his status. The struggle is advancing into a new dimension and I am sure that the gravity will shake the foundation of Nigeria.
There is and will be no going back. It will always be Biafra or we all die! Nothing more! Nothing Less!
