Dear great people of Britain,
...WE ARE BIAFRANS, THE CHILDREN OF CHUKWUOKIKE ABIAMA, LAY OFF OUR LAND OR FACE HIS WRATH!
On behalf of my people (great Briafrans), I write to inform you that it’s high time you lay off our land or be prepared to face the wrath of our God!Our people have a saying, that “A child that dances to the sweet melody of “surugede” does not know that surugede is the song of the spirits.” This is exactly the kind of dance the British government is dancing in the affairs that concern us and if not careful will consume its sovereignty and destroy what they have labored to achieve over the years.
Our people equally have a saying that “A fly that does not heed advice follows corpse to the grave.” With the tsunami of your malicious act, the resultant of your evil actions upon my people will hit you, don’t cry you didn’t know. Be warned! Lay off our affairs or be prepared to suffer the consequences.
We, as a people have greatly suffered enough in your hands and your co-conspirators and we have come to say enough is enough! “Had I known?” they say “is always at last.” Do not say you weren’t warned when the nemesis of your actions towards us finally begin to hunt you.
Before I proceed further, let me remind you again about who we really are. We are the Indigenous people of Biafra, the descendants of “Gad”, a man from the land of Israel who had in the past migrated to find a place of settlement in Biafra land.
We believe in one supernatural being and we address him by the name CHIUKWUOKIKEABIAMA or CHIUKWU for short. He is the only true living God who never abandons His children when in need. And He is the same God that the Israelites worship and adore.
We Biafrans are peace loving people and we are blessed with many talents, and creativity is our second name. Our land, on the other hand, is richly endowed with natural resources and just like the Garden of “Eden”, Chiukwu (our God) had beautified the whole place with beautiful trees of all kinds that no visitor who ever stepped into the land would want to leave in a hurry. Now I have seen why many people are so jealous of us. It is because of what we've got.
Also imbedded in this beautiful way of life of ours is the practice of democracy. The Biafran people are the original people who understood and practiced democracy very well. That is why it is said, “Igbo enwe eze,” which means our people never listened to one voice. We never practiced autocracy. In our belief system, before a decision could be reached on any matter or issue, people must always air their views; they must deliberate on it and unanimously agree on one thing. In our land, we have titled men (ndi Ichie, ndi nze na ozo) and the rest of them. These are the people who are responsible for the making of laws, decisions, rules and regulations governing the land. And for a decision to be reached, in a matter concerning the town or clan, everybody must air their views. Even though such is the case, people in the end of the discussion will unanimously and always agree on one thing. That is what makes our way of life so unique and worthy of emulation. And that is why I said that Biafrans are the original people that very well practiced “democracy”, which in the words of Abraham Lincoln is
“The government of the people, by the people, for the people.”
But one cannot say the same about the contraption called Nigeria, the abominable concoction created by Lord Fredrick Lugard, the devil himself! This is because this country whose foundation was laid in evil and sorcery is in its entirety a rape of democracy. Right from the onset, the animals living in the zoo never really understood the meaning of democracy. Nigeria is a country where laws are not respected and people’s rights constantly violated because those who happen to hold the mantle of leadership are nothing but misfits, or should I say Baboons and Monkeys in human form. And by assuming the leadership position in the zoo parliament, these worthless individuals have made a mess of things. This is a parliament of vultures! As Benito Mussolini once wrote,
“Democracy is talking itself to death. The people do not know what they want; they do not know what is the best for them. There is too much foolishness, too much-lost motion. I have stopped the talk and the nonsense. I am a man of action. Democracy is beautiful in theory; in practice, it is a fallacy…”
Such is the situation of Nigeria and this is exactly why we the Indigenous People of Biafra, under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his deputy Uche Mefor have
resorted to seeking for our freedom; to be separated from this animal kingdom and rebuild our own nation like it used to be before the advent of the White men who in their selfish tendencies had amalgamated us together.
We, therefore, urge you, great people of Britain to kindly support our disintegration from the zoo called Nigeria just like the same way you had planned and agreed to amalgamate us. Please leave us alone and let us for good be, so as to be able to manage our own affairs by ourselves.
As a peace loving people, whose belief system has always accepted the idea of treating strangers well, we had welcomed you people with open arms into our midst when you first came to our land. Little did we know that by our kind gesture, we had opened a Pandora’s Box. We, by our own very hands, had invited upon ourselves a huge problem that has continued to torment us till today. But how could we have known what we were up against anyway? How could we have known that what we had before us was a wolf in sheep’s clothing?
“…the Whiteman is very clever. He came quietly and peaceably with his religion. We were amused at his foolishness and allowed him to stay. Now he has won our brothers, and our clan can no longer act like one. He has put a knife on the things that held us together and we have fallen apart.” – Chinua Achebe wrote in (Things Fall Apart: 20.26)through the character of Obierika
As far fetched this might sound to some people but it is true, the acceptance of the British devils into our society is when and where the rain started beating us. It is when our problems really started. It is when things began to fall apart!
Britain the very same people we accepted into our land have now joined hands with other strangers - the Hausa/Fulani Muslims and Yoruba people to massacre us just for the sake of stealing the oil on our soil. Since the discovery of oil on our land, you (Britain) and your co-conspirators (Hausa/Fulani Muslims and the Yorubas) have persistently humiliated, killed and marginalized us for over a decade now. You have performed and have continued to perpetrate all these heinous crimes against us because you wanted to take what we have – oil and other natural resources our land is blessed with. It is called stealing by tricks!
In your attempt to conceal this evil brought upon us so as to prevent other nations of the world from noticing what is going on, you, Britain have come up with a plan, a very good one! This plan is to remain a ghost in the whole looting saga so as to avoid the trouble being traced back to you, and you have professionally executed it in its fullness. In this game of looting and maiming of the Indigenous people of Biafra, the British government has chosen to be the man behind the scene, making quite sure that Britain stays clearly out of sight where no one can notice her presence. Believe me, this is a perfect spot to comfortably execute this evil plan of hers.
May I remind you, the great people of Britain that we, the Indigenous People of Biafra, under the leadership of our ebullient and intransigent leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu exactly know what you people are doing. Let me explain the process for you. Let me tell you how you normally do it. The British government will carefully Stage a war in the same very zoo nation called Nigeria they created and then will Place at the front the Hausa/Fulani zombies cum terrorists and the fraudulent Yoruba, those who they know they can easily manipulate and who will be good to take the blame when eventually it backfires, and the white devils will constantly supply and equip those animals in the zoo with guns and ammunitions to kill us (The good people of Biafra).
Of course you, the British people have always been very careful in executing this immoral act in such a way that people of other nations will not know that actually, you are the master minder of these monstrous crimes against humanity. And while this war you staged is ongoing, you will then come in as a volunteered peacemaker to save the day and like a thief, which you truly are, you will be stealing our oil in the form of settling the ongoing dispute and shipping it back to your own very land to better your own lives while we Biafrans suffer in abject pauperism. How smart you are! But our Chukwu okike abiama is in heaven and he is watching!
These two set of people the British government have been using to torment us cannot in any way, shape or for match us (Biafrans) in terms of reasoning, creativity, innovations, battle worthy, mention but few; even when merged together as one and left alone in an open challenge with us (The great people of Biafra) without the intervention of some developed nations (you know yourselves, those of you who in one way or the other benefit from our oil and would always support that we remain as one Nigeria so as to be able to continue to loot and steal from us). But due to the fact that they are being
backed up by some of these developed nations (such as The British government) who have been a great parasite to us (milking our oil dry), they have been able to gain the leadership control over us. They have been able to gain the upper hand and have been able to marginalize us to the core. They are the FOOLISH HAUSA/FULANI PEOPLE and the GULLIBLE MINDED YORUBAS. These two are our neighbors and we pretty much know about them and their moronic way of life.
The first among these two set is the foolish Hausa/Fulani people. The foolishness and Bushman way of life of this particular set of people is beyond comparison. These animals in human form who in most of their lives have stayed in the bush are nowhere close to civilization. In all the races that I have come to know that exist or thrive in foolishness in this world, the Hausa/Fulani people are the most foolish of all. Does it actually have to do with the fact that they are cattle herders? Perhaps, it is because of their long exposure to animals that they now behave like one. Most of the time, (as people have discovered) these set of individuals are known for their habit of having carnal knowledge of their cattle, especially when a female human is not in sight. What more can I say about them anyway but the fact still remains that because of their long exposure to wildlife, they now think and behave almost like the animals they came. This is why the British people have found them a very useful asset and have been using them against us because they can easily and always be manipulated by them (British). The Hausa/Fulani people in their foolish nature couldn’t have come up with the idea of DIVIDE AND RULE (the system they are now using to separate us so as to gain full power and control over us) if not with the help of the British government.
The second of those two set is the gullible minded and fraudulent Yoruba's. They too are not too far in terms of reasoning from the Hausa/Fulani people. Not only are they deceptive and credulous in nature, they are also born cowards and laziness is their second nature. That was why the Hausa/Fulani people were able to conquer them and took over their land – Kwara state in the zoo called Nigeria without much stress. Kwara state was originally a Yoruba land but through a tribal war which had taken place some time ago between the Yoruba and the Hausa/ Fulani people, the Yorubas were defeated and the land, till date has remained under the control of the Hausa/Fulani, the Muhammadian caliphate.
This same Hausa/Fulani people who wanted to try this same method they used to conquer the Yorubas on us (the Great people of Biafra) but had failed woefully! Because of we, the indigenous people of Biafra naturally are strong individuals who are endowed with great skills and craftsmanship. We are wonderfully made by Chiukwuabiama, the highest God! We are the special breed. In the words of Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu,
“We are a people who choose to hunger a little to remain alive instead of feeding fat to become respectable corpses.” –
The Hausa/Fulani people never conquered us because our fathers at the time stood their ground and gallantly fought them off our land but then the British people and their co-conspirators have come to complete the circle for them. And they have now adopted a new method called ‘oppression” to subjugate us, in order to bring us down to our knees. But they will still fail! This is because,
“since oppression is maintained by force, it is only possible to remove that oppression by a counterforce.” –
Chiukwuabiama is our God and our “counterforce.” He will destroy our enemies for us. And when he strikes, the walls of Jericho will definitely fall and no one will ever live to tell the tale.
Britain should know that
“Biafra is a child of circumstance. His existence and survival are always a marvel, sometimes bothering on a miracle. His life is a tribute to the man, his courage is his endurance, his ingenuity is his humanity.” – Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu
Let the people of Britain be aware of this fact, that; “We are humans. We live. We fight, justly, because the decision to be free is a decision taken freely and collectively because to become involved in the violent struggle for freedom is the only honor left to an oppressed people threatened with genocide, because in the final analysis, the only true bulwark against death is to live.”
- Odimegwu Ojukwu
