For Biafra Choice Writers

British hatred against Biafra is beyond measure. This is observable from the way its propaganda mouthpiece, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), handles any issue concerning Biafra and Biafrans.
The activity of BBC during the Biafra/Nigeria war, to undermine the legitimate aspiration of the Biafran people, is public knowledge. How BBC aided the massacre of more than 5 million Biafrans in that 1967-1970 pogrom, by reporting lies and garbage against Biafrans, is well documented. How it went on covering up all the atrocities being committed against Biafrans by Yakubu Gowon and his fellow Nigerian butchers, is not lost on Biafrans.
Today, about 50 years after, BBC has not changed. Just days ago, this medium, in one of its World News stories, dis-informed the world about the killing of Biafrans during their Biafran Heroes Remembrance Day. Rather than send its own correspondent to Biafraland for on-the-spot report, it took to picking up distorted reports of lying (brown envelope) journalists from Nigeria.
That was how BBC came about reporting that Nigerian Military killed 17 supporters of Biafra Independence, when in fact it was a bloodbath and genocide, for more than 400 unarmed Biafrans were murdered. Shamelessly, and apart from quoting the gutter sheets published by Nigerian journalists, among the groups BBC quoted was Amnesty International, a rights group that chose to release a watering report on the incident. Had BBC tried to do some serious journalistic job (since it chose to blackout the Remembrance Day celebration), it should have sent a correspondent to Biafraland, to investigate what took place. Then, it would have discovered that Nigerian Joint Armed Forces opened fire on unarmed Biafrans at Nkpor, at Onitsha, Anambra State, killing nothing less than 400 people. Biafrans are not lost on the fact that once an issue concerns the expired contraption called Nigeria, it will favour Northern butchers against Biafrans; that is British agenda; that is BBC agenda.
Do you think we are hard on BBC? Then why did the British propaganda mouthpiece not send correspondents to Biafraland to cover the peaceful Biafra Heroes Remembrance Day? What stopped the BBC from reporting the massacre of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on May 29 and 30, this year? Why did BBC not report about the body of Biafrans illegally taken to Army Barracks in Onitsha with acid poured on them to avoid the identification of their corpses? No wonder, BBC news remains boring irrespective of their decade operation as a broadcast media.

However, one thing is certain, BBC can continue with its lies, we are no longer interested in having the BBC tell the truth. They can never stop the restoration of Biafra. The people of Biafra are formidable, and will continue to show the world the truth through their own multiple media outfits worldwide.
