Information reaching Biafra Choice Writers indicate that Nigerian despotic ruler, Muhammadu Buhari, has bribed some Biafrans of Igbo extraction to commence a new round of divide-and-rule activities with a view to whittling down international pressure on him.
Already the activities of these individuals are being felt across the media, especially the social media, where they argue that Igbo people should keep Ijaw people out of their Biafra restoration project. The individuals do not just argue their positions on principle; they also use the opportunity to take pot-shots at Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for daring to include other ethnic nationality groups such as Ijaw, Isoko, Ibibio, Itshekiri and several others.
When Damian Chukwuani of Biafra Choice Writers sought the opinion of some IPOB leaders in Diaspora, they said they were aware of the plan, but did not know the execution would be coming from Biafrans of Igbo extraction. “We had expected that Biafrans of Ijaw extractions and others, apart from Igbo Biafrans, would be the ones to be used” said Chukwudi Ofoma, a member of IPOB Directorate of State.
He however promised that IPOB high command was seriously observing the situation to know how deep some of the individuals were involved in the plot. Explaining further, he said: “We want to make sure we do not move against people who were engaged in these acts innocently, without knowing that money has changed hands in Abuja”.
Instructively, when Buhari came back from the last United Nations (UN) Summit, the first thing he did was to invite Northern Nigerian leaders to a meeting to intimate them on the latest development on Biafra agitation.
He had explained to them that serious pressure was put on him to release Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB leader, Director of Radio Biafra and Biafra Television. He also told them how he was warned sternly that he could not force unwilling people to belong in the same country with him, and should as such commence moves to allow Biafrans exit from Nigeria.
After careful deliberations, the Northern leaders had agreed with him that the best thing under the circumstance would be to make sure that people of the South-south or Niger Delta were not allowed to exit with the Igbo. They decided, not only to invite the South-south or Niger Delta elders for a talk, but also to do whatever was necessary to keep them away from the Igbo.
Part of that plan is the unfolding attack on IPOB for working with other Biafran groups in the so-called South-south/Niger Delta in their Biafra restoration work.
