Correspondents from ALL STATE MEDIA TEAM met him and under a live coverage he granted an interview.

Mazi, please can you introduce yourself to us, we are journalists from IPOB State Media Team?

Blind Man: My name is Mazi Maduabuchi Onyechege from Mbaitoli in Owerri Province, Imo State but I reside here in Enugwu State.

Correspondent: It appears you cannot see, what led to your blindness?

Blind man: I became blind due to the incessant strikes by Doctors and because I don't come from a rich background, I couldn't raise money for good treatment and as you can see here, I resorted to begging for alms for livelihood.

Correspondent: We were told in this neighbourhood that you are a passionate Biafran, what motivated you to join the struggle?

Blind man: My father fought the Nigerian Civil War. He told me all that happened and the atrocities that NIGERIA committed against us. So, I have the history in my head. Again, I heard about Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and when I listened to him, I was amazed at his thunderous voice and courage and quickly I searched for a family meeting of IPOB and found one.

Correspondent:  We were told about how you contribute immensely to finance BIAFRA Project here, how do you raise the Money?

Blind man: It is from the proceeds of what I am given by good spirit brothers, as I move around the streets of BIAFRA. I am not pressured to do what I do for Biafra. I do it because I love my Freedom more than I love my Life. The Freedom of the Igbo man from Nigeria is very important. That is why every day, I pray for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Mazi George Onyeibe.

Correspondent: Can you tell us, on the average, how much do you contribute?

Blind man: I joined the struggle in 2015 and since then, I have been contributing in any project on ground under IPOB. There are several instances where I have given N10,000, 20,000, 30,000 etc. It all depends on the urgency of the project at hand. Sometimes, I may not have the money and I will reach out to my fellow Blind comrades and borrow from them to solve the situation and I pay back gradually. Such instances are when our Transmitter is down. I don't like seeing our Radio station not transmitting, it makes me very uncomfortable and I will start running around to have it fixed. I can borrow any amount to make sure the Radio is working.

Correspondent: How do you realize such amount of money from just begging on the streets?

Blind man: The secret is, I Preach about BIAFRA and I sing BIAFRA songs which attracts so many people to drop good amount of money for me. Igbos love BIAFRA, they want to go from Nigeria, no doubt and that is why they encourage me seeing that I am blind and evangelising under my condition. So, I feel very happy to return back the proceeds back to BIAFRA Project.

Correspondent: What message do you have for Biafrans all over the world?

Blind man: I am appealing to them, to stay steadfast in resolute. BIAFRA will come if we are United and willing to make sacrifices when the occasion calls. Let us assist Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Mazi Uche Mefor and Mazi Onyeibe because they can't do this alone.

Correspondent: Thank you so much, Comrade. We are really short of words. All we can assure you today, is that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not going to fail us. Your sacrifices shall not be in vain. May Chukwuokike Abiama keep you in good health and you shall live to see BIAFRA.

Correspondent: If a blind man can reason and sacrifice in this magnitude, how about you that is fit and wealthy?

How about those that have the resources but feel reluctant to support or join the struggle?

How about those that are in the struggle but thinks of how to outsmart the structured system and cheat?

Think! Think! Think!
