On the 20th February 2019, the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) in Obigbo Igweocha Province held an interactive sessions at the local government Area (L.G.A) Rivers State in the bid to educating the public and the IPOB families on the misconception many were having on the reasons why IPOB leadership lifted the ban on election boycott. Many have this mindset that IPOB leadership has been bought over by the tyrannical government of Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani but far from it. The election boycott was used to get something that is quite beneficial to us a people. According to IPOB leader, he said via Radio Biafra that any day the government of Nigeria meet to our demands, the election boycott will be lifted which he did.

Indeed, it was a great moment with IPOB families in Igweocha Province of Biafraland. A moment with formidable activists who were ready to bring down the walls of Jericho (Nigeria). It was educating and an eye opening for those that were present in the meeting. Lots were discussed in the meeting, questions were asked for clarification on why the leader of IPOB Mazi Nnamdi Kanu lifted the ban on election boycott etc.

The L.G.A Obigbo Rivers State meeting was anchored by Mazi Sunny Isaac. They deliberated more on why the Boycott of the election was lifted. According to IPOB leader, a document issued to the Federal government of Nigeria by IPOB leadership was signed, sealed and delivered. There were no needs to still stand on the Boycott of the election since our demands were met. He urges every officer handling any position at various zones and units to be up and doing because the dancing steps of the struggle has changed.

We must remain resolute, relentless, formidable and fearless before our enemies because we are going home soon. Everybody must sit up or be removed for those that will handle the position. Indeed, Biafra is a spirit. If we could hold the Nigerian state to a standstill and they came begging even without firing a shot. Then we shouldn’t give up because our Freedom is inevitable. We must watch our fellow comrades back he urges everyone.

Every revolution is built solely on people’s culture. The way the vultures have devoured our children leaves a question mark on the validity of our non-violence struggle. I am aware that in any form of resistance, when the government is killing registers, they are, as well forcing them to retaliate.

The questions that we have failed to answer since the resurrection of the struggle is, how did the first Biafra come into existence? What are the known approaches to the struggle of the people of Eastern Nigeria? The first Biafra that produced heroes on our side was declared and defined. All known struggle of the Eastern people especially the Igbo were built on “Nzogbu Nzogbu Enyimba Enyi” Our struggle has been like waking up sleeping lions and giants. Onye metere nwagu di-na-ura, obilite Kwa ya agbala oso.” Lion and Elephants are not known for feasts. They are known to be mean animals and they remain our symbols.

If we continue to pretend and preach non-violence to an oppressive and tyrannical government like Nigeria, it is assumed that the Elephants and Lions are in the land are still sleeping. But if the unjust policies of Nigeria have woken the sleeping giants, let the jungle have no rest until their spirits are appeased.

A man to whom the state (Nigeria) brings no benefit has every right and indeed is obliged to question the oneness of that state if perforce it must include him. For a man to whom unity remains that of a Jonah in the belly of the whale, that man must question his situation. He is not comfortable in the whale's belly. It is dark, it is soggy. He wants to be out. Least he dies. This man owes it to himself to get out despite the fact that the whale (Nigeria) has felt no comfort. To this man in extreme lies the obligation to quit.

From the dawn of history, she (Biafra) has been visited with many scourges first, for his strength, he was made slaves and in slavery his ability marketed him out for resentment and persecution. In persecution his resilience led from murder to massacre, massacre to pogrom and genocide. These self-same attributes-strength, ability, and resilience ensured for him the fulfilment of his destiny. 

The struggle for independent State of Biafra is inevitable. There is no going back because many lives have been wasted and what they died for will never be in vein. The ultimate price they paid for motherland will never be forgotten. Biafra freedom is the freedom of Africa Continent. It does not matter what the northern cabals are saying, the fact remains that we are destined to be free. All hail the children of the light.
