During the creation of Man by Chukwu Okike (God the Creator), he blessed him with many kinds of gifts. These gifts are located almost anywhere you can find Man. 1st Peter 4:10, "Each of you should use whatever gifts you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms" (NIV).
The fear of being independent exhibits by Arewa and the Oduduwa people was caused by inability of Man to harness and utilize the gifts given to him by God.
Every part of the zoological Republic of Nigeria have a particular resource that can sustain them till eternity because I don't believe nature caused them to be parasites.
"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" (NIV)
I don't want to convince myself that a people would decide to be parasites; a person who habitually relies on or exploits others and gives nothing in return. At this particular moment, I think it's pertinent we deal with this issue religiously.
Before the discovery of crude oil in 1957, agriculture was the main source of income in the old Nigerian provinces of Biafra, Oduduwa and Arewa though called East, West and North respectively have one thing or the other which were sustaining the three regions. The Northern region was known be rich in groundnut pyramid, Western region for Cocoa and the Eastern region was the home of Palm nut/oil and Cassava.
The "fear" pitched to a crescendo when Oduduwa and Arewa elites jettisoned the gift of groundnut pyramid and Cocoa given to them by God as means of sustainability and through the help of the British colonial masters diverted all attention to crude oil after it has been discovered and they learnt about its high market value.
The Northern elites followed their colonial masters in drilling the newly discovered crude oil from the southern region. They totally immersed themselves in oil to the extent every newborn baby in North or West is being told that his/her life started and ended with crude oil.
Permit me to say, Niger Delta Avengers and other genuine freedom fighters are one of the remedies that will reset Oduduwa and Arewa's love for crude oil, even the British mercenaries aren't exempted from this deliverance. Believe me, oil deliverance has commenced but God is using different messengers which most clergies are jealous of because the Most High used strange messengers like Nnamdi Kanu and the Niger Delta Avengers instead of "prosperity Pastors" to deliver his people.
When a man goes astray God will download reformatting files into some individuals who will carry out the reformatting processes. And mind you, don't question God on whom to use. He may decide to use strange personality, the most important thing is to get the job done.
As Biafrans have prepared to leave the unholy and forceful union called
"Nigeria" initiated by a British mercenary "Lugard", what is the faith of Oduduwa and Arewa? After the deliverance who will guide them to their roots? The kinds of Tinubu and Buhari? I doubt.
Let us not forget the law of retribution. Every act of wickedness meted out against Biafrans must come back to in thousand folds, sorry; it's not a "cause" rather the law of the Supreme Unchangeable Changer otherwise called "Karma", For the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you" , For every action there is equal and opposite reaction.
Nigeria with the help of Britain may have used Hunger as a weapon of warfare during 1967/70 Nigeria-Biafra civil war, though God, a merciful father is also a consuming fire. Hunger; the same weapon used against innocent Biafran children is what is consuming Nigeria today.
Oduduwa and Arewa maybe extreme "Biafraphobic" but the truth remains unhidden that "Millions of women and children" were murdered in cold blood because of the oil from the land. Nemesis will always come after the guilty, Arewa, time isn't on your side, chatter your course and allow Biafrans to go now before its too late, the wrath of God is about to fall upon your generation, the monster "Boko Haram" you created is after you today, hunger is upon you and more plagues will come if you don't listen.
BIAFRA is moe spiritual than physical, Nature has come to answer its call and no man can stop it. BIAFRA is here!!
