#Biafra Fallen Heroes: A Eulogy In Honour and Remembrance of Count Count Carl Gustaf

Your Eminence, lovers of freedom, members of Count Carl Gustaf Von Rosen's family and my fellow Biafra citizen.

Today I pen down in tears this Eulogy in remembrance of Count Carl Gustaf Von, a Biafran pilot who hails from Sweden for his indulgence, and magnificent valor during the height of the pogrom from Nigeria and Britain against Biafrans.

Indeed, duty, decency, reliability, honour, dignity, respect: these and more are all the attributes that Count Carl Gustaf Von not only held in high esteem but practised everyday during his time on this earth. He was a serious and disciplined man who stood firm to challenge the atrocities been inflicted on Biafrans and the continuous harassment of the relief flights by the Nigerian Air Force, he hatched a plan in collaboration with the French secret service and dealt a serious blow on Nigerian army killing her soldiers and destroyed their warplanes.

Carl a man that hate injustice, subjugation and slavery. Oh yes,  Carl defiled a standing order from British/Nigeria against sending relief materials to Biafrans. A man that flew a DC-7 plane from São Tomé to Uli at only a little above sea level in August 1968 just to ensure he sent relief food items and materials to war-ravaged and starved Biafrans. What a lettered humanitarian!

Biafra can still feel the impacts of this great man in their lives today even as they aspire to be a free nation.

All over the world, Carl was a symbol of selfless humanity. All over Biafra, Carl is a standard-bearer for the rights of the truly downtrodden citizens.

Carl has gone home now, guided by his faith and by the light of Biafrans he has fought in defence of their rights. At last, he is with them once more, leaving those of us who grieve his passing with the memories he gave, the good that he did, the dream of Biafra nation he kept alive, and a single, enduring image of a freedom fighter.

It is a great privilege to write this eulogy to express the sadness that Biafrans shares for his loss. Carl, thank you for everything you have done for us, posterity will never forget you. God bless you and rest in peace always.

We shall always remember your great sacrifices to our nationhood.
Adieu, Carl!
