The frustration of President Muhamadu Buhari over Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB and Biafra has led him into many silly mistakes, ranging from stopping radio-Biafra broadcasts; arresting radio-Biafra listeners; arresting radio-Biafra director, Nnamdi Kanu who is also the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB; continued illegal detention of the Biafran leader, Nnamdi Kanu; massacres of IPOB members protesting peacefully against the illegal detention of their leader; negotiations with Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, to convince Nnamdi Kanu to renounce Biafra; formation of fake splinter groups called TRIPOB and subsequently Re-IPOB splinter group.

But unfortunately for him, all his wisdom has always turned to foolishness and every perceived wise counsel has failed to achieve desired results instead backfires.
Stopping Radio-Biafra Backfired!

At the assumption of office in 2015, President Muhamadu Buhari could not wait but chase after radio-Biafra, in a bid to stop her sovereignty's  restoration.
He started by ordering Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation, NBC, to shut down radio-Biafra.

NBC tried but failed. Instead of shutting their mouth up since they could not shut radio-Biafra down, they went on air to claim that they have shut down radio-Biafra.

They did that to impress Buhari but little did they know that they were doing advertisements for Biafra's Restoration because before that time only but few people were aware of Nnamdi Kanu, Radio-Biafra, and IPOB. So Buhari's strategy backfired.

Nnamdi Kanu's Arrest And Continued Illegal Detention
Buhari, in his unwise wisdom, after getting Intelligence that Nnamdi Kanu was coming to Biafraland, quickly felt that arresting the leader and founder of IPOB would surely quench the agitation for a Biafran state. But again he created more international support and awareness for the Biafran struggle causing civilised world leaders to continually call for the release of Nnamdi Kanu.

Now world leaders see Buhari as a hypocrite who backs the independence of Palestinians and Western Saharan People but suppresses the same agitation in his own country.

Nnamdi Kanu's Continued Illegal Detention

Buhari, in a bid to stop Nnamdi Kanu and Biafra agitation, flouted competent court's order to unconditionally release Nnamdi Kanu, a mistake which has reduced Nigeria to a fantastically corrupt entity, according to ex-Prime Minister of Britain, David Cameron.
Other Silly Attempts Of Buhari Failed

In a bid to suppress Biafran activists from exercising their constitutional rights of peaceful agitations, protests and assembly, ordered the security agencies who were supposed to protect lives and property, to arrest,  shoot at sight and bury any Biafran activist seen protesting.

But again this act of genocide attracted the attention of Human Rights Organizations both locally and internationally: bodies like  International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law (Intersociety), on the 6th of June 2016, uncovered the existence of mass graves in the Onitsha Army Barracks where over 90 Biafrans were reportedly buried, after they were slaughtered by troops in Onitsha and nearby towns during the Biafra Hero's Day Remembrance; AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL on the other hand confirmed the genocide on 10th June, 2016 and said, "Opening fire on peaceful IPOB supporters and bystanders who clearly posed no threat to anyone is an outrageous use of unnecessary and excessive force and resulted in multiple deaths and injuries."

Buhari has run out of ideas on how to quench Biafran sovereignty but recently after the Secretary of States of USA, John Kerry, visited  the Sultan of Sokoto and northern governors, Buhari came up with the idea of forming online splinter groups of IPOB using Vanguard as a willing media tool.

One of the invisible groups called Re-IPOB claimed that they have sacked the founder of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, but they failed when they could not prove how possible it's to sack their boss; and like other past attempts failed on arrival this splinter-groups' approach has also failed because the splinter groups are not visible and the IPOB members who are in Aba, on 28th August 2016 converged to declare on Radio-Biafra that their members are intact...showing that IPOB members are impenetrable, dogged and determined just like their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Since all attempts of Buhari to stop Biafra Have failed, I advise him to follow the path of honour as his friend, David Cameron of Britain did, and conduct a referendum so that the masses would decide their fate just as Britons did....and surely Biafrans will vote to exit Nigeria.
