When Nigeria launched operation Python dance in the five eastern states, we expected our land to be guarded against terrorists, armed robbers and kidnappers. They said they were coming to stop terror and ensure the security of life and properties of the masses. Yes, it is our right to be secured, it is our right to be guarded and it is our right to be protected yet we never expected it to come from the army, the Police were responsible for internal security. We know that there is what the Nigerian government tagged community policing, it was a system where civilians and individuals in the community formed an alliance to secure our homes and communities. In recent days, they are more of government agents and they do duty for the governors of their respective states.

Days are turning to weeks and the Nigerian army has failed to make a statement about where they kept the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.  One thing that baffles me is how fast serious issues are swept under the carpet in Nigeria and new topics are introduced to take centre stage so that nobody remembers to ask questions of life threatening situations.

Just a few weeks ago, the Ozubulu Catholic church massacre took place, while the masses watched with dismay how the government closed the case by running into a quick inclusion without investigation, blamed a drug baron and the public was made to accept that report without further questions. A Few week after, it was Ekwulobia.  In Ekwulobia, we knew the Nigerian government was up to something when innocent and armless Biafrans were shot by the Nigerian joint security forces to intimidate Biafrans to stop the agitation for the freedom of the sovereign state of Biafra but to their greatest amazement they saw Biafrans trooped out ready to be killed for fighting what we believe in. It was at this point that Nigerian government knew that something serious has happened to the consciousness of these millions of Biafrans that were sleeping all along.  How is it that Biafrans suddenly woke up from their sleep, almost at once, the whole nation is up demanding the freedom of Biafra.

Having tested the determination of the Indigenous People of Biafra and discovered that Biafra or death is not just a slogan, it is the determination of all Biafrans, they are afraid especially now that the world is watching.  It became a head ache on how to commit genocide of more than 50 million Biafrans in broad day light and they resorted to declare a secret war on the Indigenous People of Biafra and the number one target is the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The Nigerian army was deployed gradually to the five eastern states, and they suddenly declared Operation Python dance and launched attack at once.  Coming fully prepared for a civil war, armoured tanks were paraded and fighter jets flew over the residence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the entire Abia state.

They came straight to their target point expecting an exchange of gun battle. They had expected the Biafra Security Services to respond with machine guns but the Biafra Security Service were not armed with guns and bullets. The Nigerian army could not believe their eyes; they had overestimated the situation that not even a single sound of the gun was fired. They came closer and closer, they discovered that the men and women were only carrying broken bottles and sticks and using themselves to form barricade to the gate of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra.

Army fired their guns and never got any equivalent response from the Indigenous People of Biafra, they had been tricked when they saw the Biafra Security Service to believe that they were armed that was when they knew that they are fighting an unjust battle.  They had to retreat the first day after firing and killing without a reprisal attack coming forth.  They came the second day, still the human barricade was still there unarmed yet they have failed to hit their target.

It was on the third day that they began properly, they had to go right in and do what they came for. Duty is duty and they had to obey the last order, they had to shoot and kill anybody and any living thing causing obstruction on their way to clear the human barricade and broke into the house of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Shooting sporadically and consistently for hours, dead bodies were littered everywhere and some escaped with bullet wounds.  The question now is where did the Nigerian army keep the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his parents?
