FROM ONYEBUCHI EZE (A Biafran Activist)
For Family Writers.
16th February 2017
Dear Obi of Onitsha,
TELL BRITISH GOVT THAT YOUR PEOPLE WANT NOTHING BUT BIAFRA
I, Mazi Onyebuchi Eze (Nnamdi Kanu Disciple) of Family Writers Press of Indigenous People of Biafra, wish to write this letter to HRH Obi Dr. Alfred Nnaemeka Achebe to call on you to stand at where our people stand at the moment which is total restoration of Biafra. His Royal Highness Sir, it is with total humility and respect to the throne which our highly revered ancestors established with the consent of the generality of our fore-fathers through the approval of the gods of our land which you inherited that I wish to write to you this open letter.
His Royal Highness Sir, I am writing to you because I am a bonafide son of Igbo soil of Biafraland. My father's name is Late Mazi Peter Eze Odii and my mother's name is Nne Eunice Ogo Eze (Nee Offia) both are Igbo Biafrans. His Royal Highness Sir, by the reason of the above narration of my identity as legitimate son of Igbo soil and authority vested on me by revered Igbo culture, I am qualified to call on you through this letter and tell you the heart of our people presently. The desire of the majority of Igbo Biafran people is restoration of the ancient noble nation of Biafra.
His Royal Highness Sir, a report with picture evidences came to the desk of Family Writers of IPOB under the supreme command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, through our eagle-eye intelligence unit that the British High Commissioner in Nigeria visited your palace and you had discussions with him bothering on the current powerful requisition of our people to restore Biafra.
HRH Sir, permit me to tell you that in ancient Igbo culture prior to the advent of British/Fulani feudalistic political system, Igbo Kings are brave people to the extent that no King will be afraid of any mortal or even the gods, when to defend the interest of their people, even at gunpoint.
Igbo kings of previous years are not known for cowardice, they fear no mortal, no deity, no force or any other authority while representing or defending the collective desires of their subjects as Biafra restoration has become of late.
HRH Sir, I want you to know that the throne you are sitting on belong to the people. It is protected by the power of the gods of our land. It is preserved by the obeisance we offer to our ancestors who stands between us and the gods. HRH Sir, remember that the need urgency to restore Biafra is anchored on the fact that the alien forces of terror want to completely take over our land where we bury our ancestors. If these nomadic aliens completely take over our land, they will desecrate our holy land with spillage of innocent bloods in impunity and our ancestors including your predecessors in the throne will not be happy in their graves. This will be tantamount to severe consequences on me and you as we cowardly failed to protect the land we inherited.
HRH Sir, it is upon these glaring realities that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the supreme leader of Indigenous People of Biafra is presently in Kuje Prison because he declared that it is better for all of us to die in defending our holy land than to live and be blamed of cowardice by our gods, our ancestors and our posterity. HRH Sir, now that British government has come to your palace, I hereby invite the spirit of courage of our ancestors who handed over the throne and its offor to you and powers of our gods to take over you and tell Britain that your people want Biafra no matter the dangers attached to it.
HRH Sir, if you become intimidated by the cynical British government or by the propaganda of Hausa/Fulani or caged by the peanut change coming to you from the position of Chancellor of Nigeria University and betrays the desire of your subjects, I hereby invite the wrath of our ancestors and judgment of the gods of our land on you, your family and your generation.
I am making this declaration because I know that culturally, no personal interest of a King in Igboland will supersede the collective interest of Igbo people. If what I said here is the truth, I hereby pick the sand of the soil and blow on air and declared "if any other King in Biafraland will trade off the collective desire to restore Biafra on personal interest, let that Traditional ruler perish but if desire for Biafra is not the collective desire of our people let me perish. I don’t know what has bewitched our Kings that they have abandoned the ancient noble path of our cultures.
Let the gods of our land and our ancestors judge between me and any King who will attempt this ugly business again.
HRH Sir, if it is not about Biafra restoration, let there be no discussion and do not welcome any other negotiation. Biafrans are expecting a favourable discussion between you and British governmet
