Nigeria hatred against the state of Israel is mind blowing, the recent UN vote of December 6th 2018 is a proof to the point  I raise, Nigeria has been known for standing against Israel, recall that the late Mohammadu Buhari (replaced by Jubril) said Jerusalem is and must remain with the Palestinians as their capital, even the recent decision by Trump to move the capital of Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Nigeria voted against that decision, This same hatred has been passed to the Jewish community in Biafra land, always and immensely persecuted by the Nigerian state.

I wish to draw the attention of the world to the suffering and courage of the Biafra Jews immensely persecuted in Nigeria. Reason is nothing except that they are Jews. On 11/12/2018 the peaceful Jewish community here in Biafra land organized a sensitization rally, tagged "50,000,000 Biafra Jews match" in Umuahia. With bill boards boldly written "400 years of slavery is over, 100 years Amalgamation is over, we existed as Jews before the Amalgamation of 1914, we demand for independent Jewish state of Biafra."

Matching and singing with high sense of coordination, controlling traffics, armed with only the Jewish flag, the Biafra flags, their microphones and the courage that the creator gave to them with the knowledge of their conviction to remain fearless before their enemies, all this were done within the confinement of the law of Nigeria, they never broke any law, they were only exercising their right to freedom, their right to tell the tyrant that enough is enough, their right to stand up against evil, their right as indigenous people to be free from tyranny and dictatorship, freedom of  worship as Jews without intimidation or harassment by the Nigerian state, freedom to exercise their will by voting in a viable referendum to determine their exit from Nigeria. Note that all these demands and rally was done maintaining law and order without disturbing business or activities in the state.

Immediately they match pass the government house, I saw Nigerian army in the style they are accustomed to, fully equipped with Armoured personal carriers, one begin to wonder if they are up against a terror group like Hamas, but I looked and saw children below the age of 5 years, mothers above the age of 60 years, fathers above the age of 70 years, young men and women carrying only Israeli flags and Biafra flags with a single microphone, singing and dancing worshipping the creator, singing Jewish songs and playing Ogene (the Igbo musical instrument), I asked myself is this the same army that claimed their weapons are outdated, the same army that claim it was Shagari government that bought the weapons they are using, I see them with plenty cars each filled with Armed military men, they drove pass the protesters and later came back with the police who blocked the front of the protesters, while the army blocked the back, shooting  live bullets on indigenous people, many where arrested, beaten and taken to unknown destinations.

One begins to wonder why Nigeria army will send their army on a religious body, they have done it to Shiites protesters in Abuja. The notion that Nigeria has freedom of worship is a fallacy, there is nothing that you can do in Nigeria freely, that's why it’s called a zoo and a contraption, Nigeria signifies monumental Slavery. Their crime is that they are Jews. Their crime is that they are demanding attention. Their crime is that they demand for a referendum as enshrined in the UN charter for self-determination. The arrested Jewish worshippers are all prisoners of conscience and I am sure the world still have conscience.
