The saints are unstoppably matching onto the promised land and the gates of hell shall never inhibit them, come what may. The struggle for the full and total restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra many decades back, was truncated by the military administration of Yakubu Gowon who was ably aided by foreign allies. Total decimation of Biafrans was a major thrust as over 3.5 million who agitated for freedom and self determination got killed for rightly expressing their rights as Indigenous People group, as encapsulated in the United Nations' Charter. The war of attrition was waged against Biafrans by the Nigerian state from 1967 to 1970.
Our people were subjected to all manner of atrocious treatments and afflictions which had never been recorded in any known history. The only crime was their demand for self determination over their God given inheritance as it were before the evil amalgamation of the British colonialist named Frederick Lugard in 1914 in favor of the Hausa-Fulanis. Our Biafran fathers were deceived into a contrapted Nigeria which has never since over 100 years now, been of any advantage. The atrocious war was staged to wipe out Biafrans but to their shame and disappointment, THE QUEST FOR BIAFRA RESTORATION HAS REMAINED AN UNQUENCHABLE CONFLAGRATION. No man born anywhere by a woman under the sun can truncate this project orchestrated by Chukwuokike Abiama (God Alimighty) Himself. It is a conflagration that is lighted by divinity.
It has become evidently clear to all that the sun they tried to hinder from shining decades of years past, has become their waterloo. Efforts have been made and are still being made to bribe all those who ought to add up to the momentum of advocacy of the struggle. Enmity and all manner of acrimonious tendencies have been created in their "divide and rule" strategy between the Igbo speaking Biafrans of the South East and their brethren in the South South particularly. But things have greatly changed with the present generation of Biafrans as there exists commensurable amount of understanding, love and unity amongst millions of brethren from all over Biafraland and in the diaspora, under the umbrella of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide ably led by Ohamadike 1 of Biafra and the director of Radio Biafra/Biafra Television, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. We have fully realised and have through the years of steady and clinical lectures on our identity as a people and truth- based information on Radio Biafra amongst others, extricated ourselves from the delusion of "One-Nigeria" mantra that has over the years enslaved and impoverished us. There is absolutely no affinity between the Arewas, Oduduwas and Biafrans. Biafra has come to restore back to us our true identity regardless of our differences.
Despite the sacrifices and dogged resolve being employed by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and other hardcore family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in the realisation of the Biafran quest, some disguised enemies from within the so-called Igbo leadership and other political slaves (Governors, Senators and House of Reps members), from the Igbo extraction, have constituted themselves as agents to Yoruba and Hausa-Fulani cabalistic oligarchy against a just cause. They remain docile even when their own people whom they claim to represent are being arrested, victimised and killed for exercising their rights. Their imbecility and shamelessness were further brought to the fore when they gathered in a hotel recently in Enugu to call for the jettisoning of Biafra restoration. This they did to massage their selfish interests and that of their Northern oligarchical demigods at the expense of their own people. Nothing virtually till date has been done to address the seeming overwhelming sufferings and denials of Biafrans within the Nigerian context.
It is important to state here that the present generation of Biafrans will never lie low in the face of the persistent acts of criminality targeted against them by the Nigerian government over the times. Over 3.5 million Biafrans were killed during the last civil war through bullets, bombs and starvation. Yet Nigeria is what it is today developmentally because of the wealth daily being carted away from Biafraland. High level of Injustice and deprivation have been visited on us and it will be exceptionally immoral and unforgiving for us to give up this fight for the restoration of our fatherland, Biafra which our fathers/brethren labored and died for. Anybody that is therefore contemplating or suggesting prevaricating on this struggle, is just only hallucinating. This conflagration must certainly consume the evil entity called Nigeria. Our generation must restore Biafra and no matter the deluge of forces working against it, Chukwuokike Abiama (God Almighty) must very surely prevail for us.
There is always a reward for every labor whether positively or negatively carried out here on earth. Therefore, all those advocating and supporting the killings of Biafrans in whatever shade, both in Biafraland and anywhere across the contraption called Nigeria by the Hsusa-Fulanis and their Yoruba allies who claim ownership of Nigeria should just get ready. All the Biafran collaborators who are neck deep in sabotaging their own people for monetary gains amongst others, should also expect their own recompense in time or in eternity. One thing is evidently indisputable: *Nobody can stop Biafra".
The order of boycott of any Nigeria organised election in Biafraland is a concluded matter. It remains sacrosant. And until Referendum date is given, no such exercise holds. Anambra state gubernatorial election scheduled for 18th November 2017, is a litmus test of the Biafran action and that is final.
We shall remain resolute.
Long live Biafra!
Long live IPOB!!
Long live Nnamdi Kanu!!!
