It is a fact that emancipation of mental slavery of a People is the most difficult task in freedom movement. When people have come to live in lies for too long a time, they start to believe those lies to be true and a way of life.

Ikom a Local Government Area in the northern part of Cross River State, is a typical example of this scenario. The people grew up in Lies fabricated by Britain/Nigeria and dished to them by their parents who were equally victims of this mental State. So, the circle goes round and round from generation to generation.

Today, we can only give thanks to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Director of Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) who took the task upon himself to go deep through the roots of our History to excavate the Truth and swing to Radio to hit us hard so we can make a U-turn.

For some years, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has persistently and very courageously drummed the message of Reunion of all the people of Old Eastern States because we are one People. We share same Culture and tradition and that is what makes a Nation.

Before the emergence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (MNK), the Leader of IPOB, many people in this part of the South-East, have never believed that they have anything in common with their kit and kin in the Igbo speaking parts of the same area. They have been brainwashed by the propaganda of the Nigerian government sponsored by Britain. They have never believed that they are Biafrans. They ignorantly attribute anything that have to do with Biafra to Igbo tribe only.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, recently, did an exposition in a Broadcast where he laid bare the fact that Culture has a distinct way of defining a people. We dress alike, our traditions are same, signifying that we share same ancestry.

An example is the Ekpe fraternity which are practiced both by the Igbo people and the Ikom people is one of the unarguable features that reveals the brotherhood between the duo.

Here in Ikom too many lies have been told about the BIAFARA genocidal war of 1967-70 which started at a place called Gakim in Ogoja Cross River State. Historical fact has it that it was Nigeria troops that landed in Ogoja and struck first but Nigeria succeeded to twist this fact by brainwashing Cross River People that it was actually the Igbos that struck, started killing them, and claimed their properties. Big big lie! This lie has lived with us for too long and destroyed the brotherhood once shared by our people.

Unfortunately, the Elders have failed to educate the youths of this generation on the truth of the past.

Today, we the members of IPOB Family in Ikom, Cross River State wish to seize this opportunity to plead with the Leadership of IPOB under Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to as a matter of urgency install Radio Biafra Transmitter in this area to assist many who are willing to learn their true history to be able to do that through the many lectures of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

God bless IPOB
God Bless Mazi Nnamdi Kanu
