An Open Letter Of Gratitude: Biafrans Are Grateful To American Government Over The Invitation To The White House

Dear American Government,
BIAFRANS ARE HAPPY FOR YOUR INVITATION
It is with hearts full of gratitude from Biafrans all over Biafra Land, over the bold step taken by American Government in inviting the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the Supreme Command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to the White House for a discussion bothering on the demand for Biafra referendum, that I, Mazi Onyebuchi Eze (A Biafran Activist) of Family Writers Press on behalf of millions of Biafrans all over the world wish to write this open letter to the American Government to register our gratitude for showing interest in supporting the call for Biafran referendum, which is the issue of the moment around the world. The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Worldwide is not ignorant of the lobbying of Nigeria and British Government at different corridors of world powers to dissuade nations like America, Turkey, Israel and Morocco who have genuine interest in wanting to lend their support in the present demand for Biafra referendum.
Dear America Government, the joy of Biafrans know no bounds when the news broke that American Government under President Donald Trump has given an invitation to IPOB for a meeting in the White House scheduled for July 21, 2017 with its sole agenda bothering on the demand of Biafrans for referendum, which will pave way for Biafra restoration. I want the Government of America to know that a lot of damages have been done to Biafrans including the destruction of both human and material resources of Biafrans, which Nigeria Government destroyed in the course of the struggle for Biafra restoration. Therefore, the only restitution that can be given to Biafrans considering the lives of Biafrans and their properties lost on the road for Biafra restoration is total RESTORATION of BIAFRA.
Dear American Government, let it be known to you this day that, Nigeria Government ordered a brutal clampdown that was unleashed on Biafrans who were only on a peaceful rally organized by IPOB to show solidarity to the President Donald J. Trump during his inauguration as the 45th America President, which was held on 20/1/2017 at our ancestral City of Port Harcourt in Biafra Land. The ordered attack claimed hundreds of lives of innocent unarmed Biafrans who were gunned down ruthlessly by Nigeria combined armed forces drawn from her Army, Police and SSS (State Security Service). It is on record that before the rally, which took place on 20/1/2017, IPOB notified the Nigeria Police Force of the rally through a written notice dated 18/1/2017; with a certified copy of the written notice sent to American Embassy in Nigeria. It is also important for American Government to know that Nigeria Government through its trigger-happy armed forces committed sacrilege against America Government by burning American flags alongside Russian flags, Israeli flags and Biafran flags confiscated from Biafrans during the IPOB for Trump peaceful rally.
Dear American Government, this burning of a sacred national symbol of American Government such as its flag left a serious unanswered question in the heart of Biafrans, which is "is Nigeria at war with America"? Why is Nigeria military burning American flag just because Biafrans are identifying with Americans as they are having a peaceful transition from one tenure under Obama to another tenure under Trump? In fact Nigeria Government committed a sacrilege against America.
Dear American Government, it has not also gone unnoticed that there are greedy and cynical politicians from Biafra Land known as Ohaneze Ndigbo, who are masquerading as Igbo-Biafran Leaders whereas they are not at the control, command or representation of anybody in Biafra Land. IPOB has in possession evidences that these greedy worn-out politicians and present political office holders such as governors and senators are lobbying from place to place claiming that they want Biafrans to remain in political slavery, molestation, subjugation and humiliation in Nigeria against the wish of generality of Biafran populace. However, these politicians have never organize any town hall meeting anywhere in Biafra Land to discuss the lingering issue of Biafra agitation since it began, Nnamdi Kanu was in detention for 18 calendar months and up till now, hundreds of Biafra agitators are kept incommunicado in detention just because they are demanding nothing else but Biafra referendum.
Dear American Government, there is nothing that Biafrans will accept now other than Biafra restoration through a peaceful referendum. Biafrans are not calling for the useless ruse of the moment called RESTRUCTURING of NIGERIA. What Biafrans want is outright secession from Nigeria, which only referendum will decide the true desire of Biafrans. As American Government is going to discuss with IPOB delegates, Biafrans expects nothing from White House other than convincing the Nigeria Government at Aso Rock to organize a peaceful, free and fair referendum for Biafra once and for all.
