■ February 14, 2017It is now a reasonable stance in the constitution of the Nigerian government to keep killing Biafrans knowing fully well that nothing will be done as regards to being questionable to the incessant killings of Biafrans. Hence those we had respected as elders in our lands had us sold to our enemies; Biafra/IPOB under the supreme command of mazi Nnamdi Kanu have gone through strains of pain and agony in the hands of the Nigerian government.
For decades of years, the only thing we get from the Nigerian government is death; each time we exercise our rights as indigenous people who are seeking for self-determination, the feedbacks we get is pains and sorrows from the hands of the British/Nigerian government.
Our people keep suffering in deferent ways; either through marginalisation or religiously. If not through religion, it’s through oppression. We no longer have rights over self-determination, nor our human rights respected, nor rights of ownership. Imagine a situation where we came out peacefully to protest for self-determination we were murdered for the asking to be a free people.
We came to celebrate our fallen brave heroes who were killed during the protest and falling heroes of old. Still, we were murdered in broad daylight. We held a peaceful meeting in Okwe Delta State they invaded our meeting venue and killed and arrested us again. What have we done, that others didn't do for their freedom, or is it because we are blacks? Are we not human beings like them? Is it not the same blood that runs through our veins? Why have they denied us our right to freedom? Why has the world chosen silence over justice regarding the evil act of the British/Nigerian government against Biafrans?
Is there no longer right for self-determination? They have not stopped arresting us; they keep detaining us in their prisons. You kill us, and we kept quiet does not mean we don’t have the right to self-defence; if it is true violence, Biafra will be restored.
We are not cowards; we have come to take our right by force, just as we were joined together by force. We can no longer tolerate the high level of genocide in either way again. It’s either we get Biafra, or this earth will come to an end.
