Honestly, I wonder at times how much I miss because of the fact I like things openly plain and simple… not for lack of education… far from… more maybe from lack of time to read between the lines and start seeing things that are not there, why am I saying this because the articles I’ve been reading lately are confusing even from the likes of Intersociety and I’ve been wondering if it’s a deeper ploy to confuse the plain minds like my own, so I decided to discuss with my friends and associates as I fear some Biafrans are lacking actual "faith" in Nnamdi Kanu and possibly suffering again from this Stockholm syndrome (feeling of trust/affection for one's captors) that has plagued Biafra struggle from day dot…

I know that we all see/feel things differently so we can only write from our own perspective and I know often that can be misunderstood so let me write some of what I know or have come to understand.
Firstly I read a letter from Intersociety titled: Why the three new faces (Peter Obi, Ike Ekweremadu, and Nnamdi Kanu) Of Socio-Political Reawakening in Igbo land must not be found wanting.

Now I am only at the tragic title… I have never met or spoken with Peter Obi or Ike Ekweremadu as far as I know, though I do know a friend of Peter Obi who tells me he is much nicer then people say he is, but regardless let's get back to what I know as a pro-Biafran. The title itself to me is gut wrenching why? I have been fighting for Biafra for a number of years now, and by now the world knows that Nnamdi Kanu is the Biafran leader, so why the words “Igbo Land” these words breakdown Biafra struggle and shockingly from those I have seen with admiration to be working for the human rights of Biafrans and undeniably so far been doing a great job especially in Igweocha, in fact why have they dragged themselves into gossip when they are human rights lawyers who should naturally always base their work on facts.
In the words of Nnamdi Kanu, I’m a Biafran and Igbo is my language, so why are we still allowing pre-war propaganda in an age of technology to still divide the nations of the Kingdom of Biafra. 

Back to Peter Obi when I first came into this struggle, after having met Nnamdi Kanu and listening to his plight I knew I had to help Biafrans, I knew I admired Nnamdi and saw in him a pragmatic teacher, I had at the time been reading the need for mentors in one's life so decided to know this man to learn how to help humanity, not quite knowing how involved I would become in Biafra struggle… I think it was one, if not the very first broadcasts I came to participate on... when I came into the studio I saw Nnamdi Kanu at his desk online with various equipment, he said hello but turned his face rather then address me directly, which I found odd then I realized he had tears in eyes, he was angry and upset, I asked what’s the matter and then he showed me the pictures of the Ezu River killings he said to me “Look... look at what they are doing to my people”, over time I learnt how more than twenty bodies were found floating in the river in Anambra (it was never clear how many bodies were recovered because every police report I read gave varying reports).

I learned from an online discussion from a high ranking MASSOB officer that the bodies were of missing Biafrans that had been arrested were in police custody but had turned up in the river having been tortured and murdered. I read one report how the bodies had been found with their knee caps shot off obviously from considerable torture, at the time Peter Obi was the governor of Anambra and I gather he cut short a trip to visit the scene himself, yet what ever happened to the investigations?? What did Peter Obi do?

 Where are the concrete diligent investigations that obviously were required from a state governor, weren't SARS/DSS whatever you name them paid protectors of the people involved in this mess? These bodies as far we can astatine were in police custody so what happened?? Who was found accountable? Radio Biafra and director Nnamdi Kanu have been calling for the full autopsy reports to be made public for more than four years now so why is Intersociety even putting Nnamdi Kanu in the same breath as Peter Obi?? 

Demand the autopsy reports and file the human rights cases, don’t tell me because this was 2013 this can be swept under the carpet there’s mothers and fathers out there who’s sons were arrested and don’t know their bodies were recovered from a river, they can not mourn they can not lay their sons to rest … they are left unknowing… when Ojukwu said the war never ended he really wasn’t saying it for saying sake … still, families are losing their loved ones because state governors do so little… which brings me to Obiano now I’ve heard people use this man's name in relation to IPOB, shamefully even the once much admired by me Emeka Umaeagbalasi has seemingly reacted to hearsay, please now come on you are a reputable lawyer and in my experience of good lawyers they work with facts and evidence so please produce the evidence before Biafrans … we are waiting.

For myself and I will say for IPOB we will always have an issue with Obiano because of the recent deaths of Biafrans in Anambra, I have heard the cry from some that Obiano is innocent that he is not in charge of the armed agencies, fair enough but as state governor why was there not an immediate official enquiry set up into the killings of Biafrans, or even at any time since.. again same issue for Anambra lack of concrete investigations into armed agencies.

Honestly speaking Biafrans are at the last great hurdle now as they need to step into the political arena not as Nigerians but clearly as BIAFRANS, IPOB can not and will not involve itself in Nigeria politics they are not interested in Nigeria they have Biafra, obviously people's pockets are going to feel the change and its a big issue so there’s political money flying around causing division .. peoples money I may remind to add.

We must remember that no man is an island, not even Nnamdi Kanu and he will meet with back stabbers, politicians, group leaders, but as clear as it was the first day I met him and as clear as it is today Nnamdi Kanu has one agenda BIAFRA and the safety of his people, that could not be tortured out of him by the likes of MASSOB then under the leadership of Uwazurike or by the DSS who arrested him and held him imprisoned for nearly two years so the entertaining methods of anyone now can not even compare or work now!! There was a Biafran T-shirt in the war that was worn that read “In Biafra, we stand” after the failure of the Aburi peace accord…. Biafrans have tried and tried with Nigeria, but clearly obviously too much has happened far too much blood has been spilled a sacrilege to all Biafrans …. so let's keep it real, plain and simple… BIAFRA!!!
“In Biafra, we stand”.
