BIAFRA: The President of the contraption called Nigeria; Muhammadu Buhari has declared a full-scale war on Biafran journalists in Biafra Land. Following the recent clampdown on our journalists by the Nigerian security forces, there is no doubt, that Buhari is already positioned correctly to go into public executions of Biafran journalists at any point in time. Biafrans are always formidable, and we have proved our formidability because we are everywhere. The Nigerian president has become biased and has concluded to desperately and motivationally debunk the Biafran journalistic works.
Biafrans are wholly independent of the Nigerian irresponsible Yoruba gutter media, usually fond of reporting junks and lies as well known in the world, which has prompted the Biafran journalistic works, as we loosed hope on the wastes published and sold to masses to become deceived and confused by the Nigerian government. During that bloody war against Biafrans, we were media sceptical, and the world could hardly hear our hardships and tragedy. This time, we have emerged differently to destroy the wrong foundation called Nigeria on earth.
This reminds me of my leader, who repeatedly stated that "He (Nnamdi Kanu) will destroy the zoo (Nigeria) with nothing but the truth)". Before the emergence of our leader, mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Biafrans were in the dark. We were all slaves to ourselves. We were all strangers to ourselves. Biafrans have dwelt many years in the exile but has been called back home by that thunderstorm voice that dismantles evil beings out of sight on Radio Biafra. Media is power, and that's the only means citizens can live without being in disarrayed. Information is power and gives security to the poor masses. Here in Nigeria, the reverse is the case. The nepotism from the Nigerian government has gone to the extent of demolishing this wrong foundation on the Western part of Africa. The Nigerian government has become threats to our journalists, and we are seeking that such act must seize to exist. Biafran reporters have suffered injustice, torture, humiliation, and at some point in time, death uncountable number of occasions. This atrocity has been ongoing for a long time, both secretly and openly. Many Biafran journalists do not sleep at their homes any longer, as Nigerian security operatives are always bound on raiding their homes to get them arrested.
One of the Biafran journalists that covered the incident that happened at the National High School Aba, on the 9th of February 2016 escaped this humiliation, by running away from his home. It waa crystal clear, and well stated by eyewitnesses, on how our journalists were treated ill humanely on the 17th day of November 2016, which was the last court case of our leader. Most of them were taken to underground buildings and were beaten to stupor. Mazi Ejike Ofoegbu of Biafra writer was a victim of that incident. The Nigerian military, came out in the troop to arrest any journalist seen taking pictures or videos of the court event.
Biafran journalists were denied access from entering into the court room with their phones, cameras or any other device. The humiliation was excess, to the extent that no single picture was taken inside the courtroom. This is journalistic harassment. No media house, nor paper, gave reports on the court proceedings till date. This is called media blackout. The Nigerian government has gone nought, and like this time, they are determined to go any mile to stop us. 1st December is fast approaching, and we are still wondering if they will continue or abstain.
Biafrans are not relenting because information is power active on the side of Biafrans. Many Biafran journalists have lost many of their electronic devices to the hands of the Nigerian securities, while they to be firm investigating them from prison. We, therefore, petition the world International Bodies to look into this case and rescue our journalists. We are not going back. We are determined and must win this media war. Since the Nigerian idiotic media houses refuse to report on our case, we have every bit thing it can cost to do it ourselves. The world should rescue our journalists, as their lives go into danger.
