OPEN LETTER TO SAHARA REPORTERS

OPEN LETTER TO SAHARA REPORTERS
By Ifeanyi Chijioke
(For Family Writers) Nnamdi Kanu

Dear Sahara reporters, I want to commend you immensely for standing on truth at least inevitable truth that Nnamdi Kanu has committed no crime and deserves to be immediately released conditionally or unconditionally, you accepted that freedom of speech is under threat by the Islamic republic of Nigeria. I also want to laugh at your obvious antagonistic reportage, I laugh because you are a mockery of journalism, I laugh because of the alleged 2.3 billion paid to you by Nigerian government to tarnish Image of Biafra and her sympathizers, I imagined what journalism has turned into in your hand and how you contradict yourself.

I could not remember when last lies surmounted a cause; I had suggested you become more tactical or economical with truth than entirely embracing falsehood. Your anger is obvious, Nnamdi Kanu reciprocates with equal proportion the hatred Nigeria has for Biafrans, I can understand that hatred is not a state crime even though it's morally unhealthy, in respect with Nnamdi Kanu's case, I see it as equity and respect, giving with equal measure one was given with. You hated Biafrans, we did not fight you or cursed you but we accepted your hatred and hated back as well. Sahara reporters, I will illustratively and substantially define hatred to you hence you are a product of corruption or rather you are infected with the immeasurable corruption in Nigeria.

Hatred is the deportation of Biafrans from Lagos Nigeria which reflects total rejection or hatred. Hatred is intimidating Biafrans with royal vow to throw them into the lagoon if they don't be your slaves. Hatred is singling out Biafrans as targets or victims of Boko haram attack in the North that is not reported on daily basis by Nigerian newspapers. Hatred is until date Northernization which was instilled by Sardauna of Sokoto never to give Biafrans job.  Hatred is calling for our leader's head for trying to liberate us from your hatred with no guns but truth.

Should I continue listing illustrative hatred the pages of my leaflet will not contain any other thing. Before I forget, Sahara reporters, you reported "IPOB protest turned violent in Aba" but Nigerian ACP was warning violent traders protesting in Aba and demanding the resignation of Gov Ikpeazu which quite contradicted your report and gives credence to your vicious attack on truth. Sahara reporters, one of your certified journalist was caught inciting Hausa/Fulani against Biafrans ; acting on your scripts but you felt it would affect the credibility of your firm hence he has been caught, you acted by floating the news as well.

Sahara reporters, just as you are pained that Buhari is being insulted by Nnamdi Kanu and labeled truth hate speech, you have quickly insulted Nnamdi Kanu with childish name as "watermelon head". Hahahaha pardon my laughter, your dimension of journalism is quite laughable and just as Nigeria arrested Nnamdi Kanu, and maybe you deserve to be arrested by Biafra for insult. I will love to suggest here, it's better to watch BBC and follow her antagonistic strategy, they turn blind eyes to news concerning Biafra and when obsessed they float it truthfully once in a while. Finally, i have researched and can confirm that you lack maturity and fairness, journalism is not a tool in the hands of the government of the day or about choosing sides subject to emotion. 

Journalism is about fair judgment and sincerity, journalism is a tool that works the dream and aspirations of the masses, you saw millions of Biafrans that came out demanding for their freedom, you saw the level of discipline and law-abiding nature of the peaceful protester. Sahara reporters, if truth as it is, without massaging is hate a speech, then there is need to assess the impact of that hate speech, had Hausa/Fulani and Yorubas complained of terror attack? If hate speech impacts law-abiding spirit, hardwork, consistency, determination, and discipline please we need hate speeches from the corrupt leaders of Nigeria and even the editor or CEO of Sahara Reporters to discipline her journalists, you need more leaders like Nnamdi Kanu in your country Nigeria and Africa as a whole to help instill law-abiding spirit and discipline in Africans and Nigeria like Nnamdi Kanu has done with Biafrans. Mind you that, it is "Biafra or death"

    When the heavy handed intervention by the military ensues, I can assure you that the main instigators will be cosy in their comfortable homes in London and America whilst the guillable and ignorant brainwashed Biafran warmongers, will feel the brunt of the military surpression. No government in the world tolerates treasonable offences. Nnamdi Kanu was soliciting for guns and bullets from Igbos living in America. Attacking Sahara reporters is indeed comical and makes a mockery of the whole Biafran agitation and is indicative of the ilk of people carried away by this ill timed agitation. Sahara reporters has done more good than harm for our African continent and the world is indeed proud of the investigative nature of the media house. So I suggest you redirect your misplaced agression to our Igbo leaders who have failed us till date. The Biafran agitation is flawed due to many holes in the idea. I on the other hand have an open letter to the agitators for secession:

    I quite admire the articulated stance of many and the unflinching support for what is in the main a noble cause, however the fact is that Nnamdi Kanu shot himself in the foot. His agitation for secession should have been more strategic and more geared towards a peaceful solution. He espoused hate & violence daily on Radio Biafra and it would only be a matter of time before the overwhelming evidence to detain him, would be in the hands of the DSS. Namdi Kanu was warned serially by well meaning Igbos and sympathisers of his cause, to tone down the hate rhetoric and rather use the medium and platform he has, to educate our people to the stage where a referendum can be sort. The Scottish and other peaceful examples often cited has no resemblance to Namdi Kanus modus operandi. Those cases were peaceful and the government's of the day obliged their agitation and ofcourse in the case of Scotland, the rest is history. Like many other introspective thinkers; we must ask ourselves pertinent questions.

    1. Is it the fault of the Yorubas and the Hausas that our south eastern leaders have not sort to form a coalition of sorts and create an Igboland eldorado in the southeast of Nigeria? 2. Why was the political party; APGA bequeathed to Ndi Igbo by Odimegwu Ojukwu and co which was to be a veritable platform which they would some day use to present Nigeria with a petition for secession, given that we must be self sufficient and a viable block; not given the support it should, just like the Yorubas did with the Action Congress ? 3. Does the very utopian Biafra which Namdi Kanu dreams about, not seem to be another alliance of strange bed fellows, given that the Niger Deltans seem to be at best on the fence, and at worst not in agreement with their inclusion in the Biafran project ? 4. As things stand and if the five Igbo states agreed to secede via a referendum, can the viability of such a currently landlocked region not be in question, given that the current federal subvention would seize? 5. Does the region have the potential to mop up the inevitable population explosion which will emanate from the loss of jobs held by the Igbos in regions that will remain under Nigeria ? 6. Some of these questions are in relation to a peaceful secession however what if the Nigerian Federation refuses to listen to the current agitation based on its view that the principal characters within IPOB espouse hate and violence and as such would use the heavy handed approach, and so are we really ready to repeat the David and Goliath scenario which was the 1967 Nigeria/Biafran war ?.
    7. Do we have international support for our cause which will sustain such a war "God forbid" for longer than 4 months which was the time it took the Nigerian government to over run Enugu, the then Biafran capital during the 1967 ill prepared war ?

    We must stare the truth in the eye and do the much needed honest introspective articulations. These questions must be candidly answered in order not to avoid unnecessary blood shed and displacement of ndi Igbo once more. Misguided Intellectual masturbations often ends in egoistic ejaculations to the detriment of mostly a politically ignorant and illiterate electorate. Delusions of Grandeur mustn't be allowed to becloud common sense. May God continue to bless and prosper "Ndi Igbo" Iseee & Amen.
