Today, Wednesday, March 1, 2017, Nnamdi Kanu, leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of Radio Biafra and Biafra Television, goes to court again. This time around, he goes to court incontrovertibly as the greatest living Biafran leader. He has succeeded in showing the world what Nigeria is – a useless contraption that must be dismembered and flushed down the toilet.
Without doubt, Nigerians must have understood by now that holding him in detention is foolishness they can no longer afford. No wonder many of them have started ruing the illegal detention and trial, and asking for his immediate and unconditional release. But the question is, “will the deaf and dumb government of Nigeria listen, which is now in the hands of a pastor who tells lies at will, Yemi Osinbajo?”
One thing is certain, however, whether they listen or not; whether they continue to keep him in detention or not, it is at their own peril. Since they abducted him, they have seen their country hurtling down a dangerous slope into oblivion. They have seen the economic, political, and social wellbeing deteriorating uncontrollably.
Just recently, World Food agencies indicated that about 4. 4 Billion Dollars was needed to feed some famine and starvation-streaking Nigerians. The reported indicated that “UN aid agencies need $4.4 billion in emergency funding to address famine in Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen.”
Biafrans are not surprised. They remember that Nnamdi Kanu warned about this more than two years ago. In 2014, Kanu had declared to the world that if Nigeria failed to give Biafrans their well-deserved freedom, that Nigeria would be worse than Somali. Indeed he said that failing to allow Biafra its independence that he would use truth to destroy Nigeria. But they took his statement as that of a drunken man.
But they were preoccupied with their relying on their so-called military might, with which they had always used to terrorize people. They threw caution and wisdom to the dogs that they are now reaping the consequences already. Nigerians did not reason that Biafra’s freedom was a legitimate aspiration, and well-deserved because Nigeria had already expired. Amalgamated in January 1, 1914 to last for 100 years, the country legally ceased to exist on December 31, 2014. The Nigerians did not reason the truth that Nigeria was already a running-illegality, being governed by a forged document (called constitution). It was a document forged by Nigerian military criminals and other adventurers in power, led by Abdulsalami Abubakar, who used to forgery to steal the peoples’ wealth and resources.
Just recently, Nigeria’s terrorist president, Muhamadu Buhari, who has killed and murdered Nigerians so much that he ran himself into a cul-de-sac, went into hiding. He went into hiding to see whether his deputy could dig him out of the hole he dug himself into. Now the ball is in the court of Osinbajo, he must release himself today or dig his own hole for himself. Kanu must be free!
