The Israelites were slaves in Egypt for 400 years. They prayed and hoped for redemption, generations came and went, but redemption didn't come, not even from the self-acclaimed 'God' of their fathers.

After 400 Years this 'God' decided to speak. He told Moses, "I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians. 

Did it take God 400 years to see the misery of the Israelites, to hear their cry and then be concerned about their suffering? Someone may say, that was when they prayed to God. Oh no, the reason is God's set time.

(You know, in the quest to get God to do what they want, people are quick to see that God redeemed the Israelites from Egypt, but they tend to overlook the procedure involved. Contemporary Christianity has made people to always focus on where it sounds sweet.)

About 500 years earlier, God told Abraham, "Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, And They Will Be Enslaved And Mistreated 400 Years. But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions. You, however, will go to your fathers in peace and be buried at a good old age. In the fourth generation, your descendants will come back here.

Now to my point of view, People have been heard preaching, we should pray for our leaders, without sitting down to think and ask for understanding of what a particular scripture says about that. When Peter was arrested in Acts of Apostles, the church prayed and Peter was miraculously delivered by an Angel from Herod's dungeon. But the truth is that the prayer continued and the same Angel went on and killed Herod the next day. The Bible asks us to pray for our leaders that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life. But a leader who is bent on killing his people just to establish an evil religion thereby seeing animals more important than a  creature created in the image and likeness of God.

 A good examples are the  extrajudicial killings of the Shiites, Biafrans,  the combined forces of Nigeria Army and police have been seen in several reports involving incomplete gross human rights abuses, recently as it happened somewhere in Abiriba, Abia state Biafra land where the Nigeria Army threatening the peace of Biafra women who went for a conference, hence it is alleged that there aim was to exterminate them and possibly rape them. These circumstances are issues that are known to be true about the conduct of the Nigeria Army, especially during this Muhammadu Buhari's regime. 

Why has Biafrans continued to be killed even after it was ruled in a competent court of jurisdiction that it is a legitimate and lawful organization as formerly opposed by the government of Buhari? Consequently, there is more to what is happening than what we know and it is a clear reason why the British have continued to support the murderous contraption they created because Biafrans' intelligence is something that is second to known, proven beyond reasonable doubts. 

To digress a bit: why will I pray for Buhari to be okay, it is purely against the scripture. The Bible says if a wicked man is on the throne the people groan, and Nigeria is groaning under PMB, and if the righteous rules the people rejoice. Biafrans are not interested again and are not rejoicing, rather Buhari has secretly and openly supported the increased killings by herdsmen, so why will it be well with him. Buhari should be made aware that Biafrans are too many for him to hold ransom, it has been clearly manifested as he continues to suffer medically. God is never an author of confusion, he protects his prophets and that is what God has done in the life of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Kanu's incarceration has put Buhari in a condition worse than death and will continue just as the plagues that struck Pharoah but ultimately Biafra will be restored, and this is because I have never seen a victory without stories. Hence whatever may betide us, we are saved in the hollow of the slain heroes of Biafra even as we mark their day on 30th May 2017 order.
