Nwachiukwu: my beloved sister, I am not afraid of the zoo. This is because the zoo is already finished. I am not afraid of anybody, simply because this is my father's land, andIi can't be frightened of using Biafra colour and logo on my marriage invitation card. You can see for yourselves, Biafrans are all over the world, and everywhere around this place. I am not afraid.
Umuchiukwu: What are your advice to Biafrans around the world?
Nwachiukwu: I am advising all Biafrans and IPOB family members, not to be afraid. We were arrested at Bayelsa state, and people were calling me on the phone, telling me that since the zoo military got hold of my invitation card, they are bound to trace the venue, and they will eventually, clamp down on us, thereby advising me to make it secret, to avoid it. But i told them NO! That I must stand because my leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said that it is only fear that will kill us. But if we can remain fearless and courageous, they will do us nothing. That is why I have the mind to stand firm and do my traditional marriage openly with every alacrity. Umuchiukwu: Thank you, sir. So you are still standing on Biafra or death? Nwachiukwu: Yes! (Biafra or death, or the zoo, collapses). Umuchiukwu: Thank you, sir Nwachiukwu: Thank you. This is resoluteness! And our people must continue, "keep on keeping on" as mazi Uche Mefor, IPOB deputy leader will always say.
