From every indication, it is ascertained that the reason why Nigeria and the British never wanted Biafra to exercise her right to self determination has a fraudulent and a hegemonic undertone. I was born in the early 80’s and up until now, the Biafrans have proven practically that they are the light and the symbol of the Nigerian unity.

Historically, Chief Obafemi Awolowo was apprehended and locked up in jail for suggesting the Nigerian state break-up in the early 60’s. Nnamdi Azikiwe stood in defense of one Nigeria. Aguiyi Ironsi ignorantly in defense of same locked up his own brother Majour Nzeoguw for the 1966 coup which the reward for his kind gesture was a painful assassination.

All these lingered until a continued massacre of the Biafrans across Nigeria that ushered in the Nigerian-Biafra civil war. January 1967, the military leaders and senior police officials of each region met in Aburi, Ghana and an agreement was reached on a loose confederation of regions. The peoples general Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu (Ikemmba One of Biafra land) in his quest for a more peaceful and a continued co-existence accepted without sentiment but the Northerners were at probability with the Aburi Accord; Obafemi Awolowo, leader of the Western Nigeria warned that if the Eastern Region seceded, the Western Region would also, which convinced the northerners to decide their stand in the case. As reconciliation was not reached, on 26 May the Easterners voted to leave from Nigeria. On 30 May, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, the military governor of the east, declared the Republic of Biafra, citing the Easterners killed in the post-coup violence.

I quote:“I, Lieutenant-Colonel Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Military Governor of Eastern Nigeria, by virtue of the authority, and pursuant to the principles, recited above, do hereby solemnly proclaim that the territory and region known as and called Eastern Nigeria together with her continental shelf and territorial waters shall henceforth be an independent sovereign state of the name and title of "The Republic of Biafra". The war which lasted for 30 months was led by Britain and other world power with combined Nigeria military force  leaving the Biafrans physically and emotionally wounded. After the war, Biafra leaving the butchers desk picked up her remains and continued surviving without being biased and have continued up until now to developing and bringing up ideas that will be favourable to Nigeria as an entity supposedly. Instead of a kudus and an appreciation for their hard work, the reverse is the case.

The Biafrans and their properties is the major target anytime there is a civil-unrest in Nigeria. Pronounced hate languages against them is an everyday occurrence. Many mistake their industrious capability for an act of domination. Many even blame them for leaving their region to come out developing other regions in Nigeria when all these are about promoting a united Nigeria. Many considers; if possible a total annihilation of the Biafrans. They (the Biafrans) have been incited against one another so as to creating a broader pavement via which they will always be manipulated by their haters which is one of the most dangerous and effective divide and rule strategy against the Biafran people for a kingdom divided against itself will never survive.

The Igbo tribe specifically been demonized among others that a fellow Biafran sees his own siblings and cousins as his major problem. Even among the Igbo speaking Biafrans, many have been deceived until some could boldly say; “I am not Igbo” when he speaks Igbo, worships Chukwu-Okike, answers Igbo names and honours Eze/Igwe. All these are as a result of the collective hatred from the British and the other parts of the Nigerian state. Now on a peaceful protest, (unlawful arrest and extra-judicial killings) is been used a measure to curbing the already ill situation and a stupid man will come asking, why considering secession? Nnamdi kanu and co. are kind people with the level of anger they are expressing in this case, one would be worse if the opportunity is given. In as much as no man has the monopoly of violence, any attacked has the right to self defense. “If you directly tells a man that you hate him, he will practically seek away to avoiding you” It is high time the Biafrans should be allowed to go home and build their own Nation which will be extremely favourable to the African Nations at large to avoiding another regrettable situation that the pains will remain for eternity.
The people in this contraption called Nigeria are people of completely different ideologies forcefully merged for selfish reason by some criminals.   

All Hail Biafra.
(Uzubi Maka’nu!)



  2. A yoruba friend ask me: under what conditions would you support One Nigeria and let go of the biafra struggle.Here was my response:

    1. Close down Lagos ports and Open up PH,Calabar, Onitsha and Warri.

    2. Cancel all direct and major connecting flightsto Lagos and Abuja airports…onlylocal orminimal connecting flights will be allowed. Whilethis is being done, open up Enugu, Owerri,Asaba, Uyo and PH to international flights…direct and major connecting flights.

    3. Ask all international and diplomatic missionsto move their embassies and consulates from Lagos and Abuja to Enugu, PH and Calabar.

    4. All federal governments agencies in Lagos and Abuja shall be relocated to Enugu, PH and Calabar. CBN, NNPC,e.t.c shall and mustrelocate to PH, Calabar and Enugu.

    5. All multinational companies in Lagos andAbuja, shall and must relocate their offices toPH, Calabar and Enugu.

    6. If these conditions can be fulfilled and implemented, we can try one Nigeria and let’ssee if you Hausas and Yorubas will like it for a month. Meaning, Yorubas and Hausas needingto get visas shall travel to PH, Calabar or Enuguto do that. Same with flying or connecting flights, same with shipping and importing their goods, e.t.c.

    The yoruba friend replied: you can’t be serious,this is wickedness.
    I said really? Don’t you think Biafrans have been suffering and enduring thisvery same wickedness for over 50 yrs? He was quiet for a few seconds and said:

    wow, you are right but it never occurred to me. I said, that’sthe problem with One Nigeria, those who are benefiting love it and would love to maintain the status quo.GOD BLESS BIAFRA

    1. Your response is a manifestation of what is wrong with the world today.

      EveryOne is concerned with me me me and don't give a toss about others. As long as we have our millions in the bank we r ok.

      Why didn't u suggest a fair n balanced sharing of these responses. Or was it only pple from the east that founded these companies.

      Until we learn to share and look out for our brothers.. We will only continue to speed down the slipper slope to hell.
      An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth are no longer valid... shey the new testament preaches forgiveness.. so if has a n yoruba pple have wronged ibos.. turn the other cheek...
      I booked have also committed atrocities so aren't blame free in this situation.

      I pray fewer pple are like u.. In citing hate n promoting self advencement at d detriment of others.
      God will touch ur heart.

      A wise saying I read today
      Those that beat the drums of war ae usually too old to fight it or too young to remember the last one...
      Think wisely. . Leader Nnadi lives in London with 24hr electric supply and all amenities. Police will respond if he calls... He is safe... don't let him lead u into boiling oil.

  3. The world knws all this truth... the issue is, let's prepare for how to tk our destinies by force.. since they (the world) r looking the other way..

  4. In the world we live today.we have been brainwashed to depend on human connection that fails.told that without money you are nobody.but I have come to bring you a divine news from the divine news paper from heaven.all you need is divine connection to God the ruler of the universe that spirit that tell the mountain to shift and it moves,the sea to make way and it divides,the fish to jump into the net and they jump right in.he is all you need you need to survive in the jungle.David had only a stone and catapult yet the mighty giant fell on his feet David had only God and his skills to be able to achieve that.what are believing God for my brother my sister money cannot buy God's favour your connections are weak before God who is a divine spirit connecting to that divine spirit is all you father my fighter I tap into your divinity to connect to my destine and be who you said i am in your divine glory and favour forever and ever.

  5. To help achieve one Nigeria in state independence.all the state Govt need to do in protest is to stop submitting the state money to the federal account and use the money to develop there dilapitating states neglected by the federal govt.hold on to you states fund and develop with it.get the federal govt to restructure Nigeria by force. I heard president Buhari talk about sabotage this is not Sabotage is called Fix Nigeria Mission with vision titled 'One Nigeria'. Where this Mission will truly unveil who the true sabotages of one Nigeria are the hausa the yoruba or the igbos who are already Mad at the extreme Marginalization or the political parties.
