Since the Biafra genocidal war of 1967 – 1967-1970 that saw more than 5 million Biafrans massacred by a conglomerate of countries around the world, who were inspired by their political and economic interests, the entire old Eastern region of Nigeria (Biafraland) has been denied the right to sound political leadership. This rights denial by the British and the Sokoto caliphate (Fulani Empire) is a result of the fear that ‘allowing the region with such politics and orientation of confrontational republicanism could spell doom for the both parties exploitative and conquest agenda, respectively’.
After the surrender of the Biafran resistance in 1970 on “No Victor, No Vanquish’ terms, and the followed paper reintegration policy, the powers that be went into ‘subtle but penetrative’ war on all the fabrics of existence that made the Biafran region viable; political, economical, ideological, sociological, etcetera.
The British and Fulanis ensured that the Calibre of men who held leadership positions of the Eastern people since 1960 independence up until the war were thrown out of the political corridor, leaders that made the region so progressive and stable.
Fulani Oligarchs seized all the assets and capitals of every Biafran citizen to facilitate the enthronement of sabotage and individualism. Hence rendering them vulnerable and irresistible to their influence. They invested heavily in the cultural and value defamation of the region (this started even under colonial rule) and stereotyped the populace by instigating conflicting sentiments amongst them.
Having succeeded in this impulsive plan that guaranteed every emerging political leader in the region must come to them and swear allegiance to do their bidding and protect their interest whenever and in whatever it may be, and will not hesitate to kill even inhabitants of the region (the leader’s own people) if need be, in defense of the overlords’ interests.
But then emerged Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), a revolutionist with no records of political credentials in any state. He came up asking for justice for the people of the region whom their leaders have been overwhelmed by servitude to the real owners of Nigeria (British and Sokoto caliphate).
All attempts made to bribe and intimidate Kanu to their divide was unsuccessful as he maintained that “for there to be peace there must be Justice”. Kanu continues to expose the injustice that has been meted on the people of the Eastern region for decades and the need for justice to the upheld. His call for a referendum was seen as threat, likewise his popularity amongst the people, his humility and reckon with the people’s agony.
The Eastern region political elites colluded and brought the Nigerian military to assassinate the Umuahia born on 14th September 2017 at his father’s compound in Afara-Ukwu Ibeku, Aba State.
Thankfully, Nnamdi Kanu survived the assassination attempt and painfully escaped from the invasion that took the lives of other 28 unarmed civilians that were in the compound at the time, including Nnamdi Kanu’s cousin sister.
As a follow up, Fulani Oligarchs and South East Politicians proscribed Kanu’s freedom movement, the “Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB)” a terrorist organisation, even when it is clear that IPOB is a non-violent self-determination movement that believes in a world recognized democratic process (referendum).
Nnamdi Kanu who narrowly escaped to safety, continued to propagate the gospel of the Biafra restoration without stop, but now from the foreign country, until he was kidnapped again on the collaboration of Kenya and Nigeria governments.
And, it is even alleged that the funds used for the extraordinary renditioning of the IPOB Leader from Kenya by the Nigerian secret security were contributed by some South East political Elites, over the bid for individual 2023 presidential slot which they never got afterwards. And, after their disappointments, owing to the legal victories of the IPOB legal representatives in the Nigerian Courts that discharged and acquitted the IPOB leader from all frivolous charges, they have failed to swallow their shame and collectively as a Bloc, ask the federal government of Nigeria to obey court order and release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Those who managed to individually do so, were all jittery and elusive in their call, so it would not offend their paymasters in Abuja and God knows elsewhere. This is not only appalling but also threatening because should this trend continue unabated, then the future is not sure, because our next generations will most likely deepen in this Perpetual servitude. This is the main reason for the Biafra freedom agitation championed by the Mazi Nnamdi Kanu led IPOB.
IPOB wishes to secure the future of our unborn generations in a free sovereign Biafra Nation, because such can never be obtainable in Nigeria. Nigeria government should obey its own courts’ orders, release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and acquitted the IPOB leader from all frivolous charges. The leadership of Nigeria should swallow their shame and collectively fix a date of referendum for Biafra, because this Biafra agitation project has crossed the Rubicon and will stop at nothing until it is totally actualized.
