What else are we waiting for, to know we are all stupid and hopeless in Nigeria, what is left to prove our irrelevance? When before his submission for arrest, Nnamdi Kanu shouted day in and out that Biafrans that believe in Nigeria are nothing and would always be disgraced or killed. Bluntly he laid everything bare amidst sufficient opponents and antagonists; they still did not fail to tell us that is a propagandist.
Like a man who knows tomorrow, he said they would reject him for the first time but in the end, Biafra will always win. He left London and in Lagos submitted himself to be arrested; his arrest was bait that caught Nigeria. His arrest followed strings of joy by opponents and antagonists. Gradually it started unfolding, all he said was reflected on and like a drama it started to go the way he said them. Detained until the world talked, all media houses talked and every lip called his name. Slowly, protest began and crippled the contraption called Nigeria.
The armed forces came, detained and killed Biafrans unlawfully. Like rewinding minds, Biafrans started coming to their senses. Ohaneze had denied Nnamdi Kanu previously but suddenly denied the members who denied Nnamdi Kanu, they later made their position known that they want Nnamdi Kanu released. They came back and lamented what Nnamdi Kanu has been lamenting but failed to confess Biafra which is the solution. Slowly, Nnamdi Kanu started gaining support and momentum, south south and southeast stood up from their pit of deceit. Divide and rule was defeated, common course took prominence and Biafra became the destination of everybody. The protest in south south and southeast that followed Nnamdi Kanu's arrest forced everyone to talk, even BBC pleaded to talk to me, some calling for the release of Nnamdi Kanu while some for dialogue. One interesting thing was that all Eastern people talked with one voice calling for the release of Nnamdi Kanu.

Hopes were high that Nnamdi Kanu would be released but until a competent court granted him unconditional release everybody both Ohaneze, Asari Dokubo and all groups and figures Biafrans have in south south and southeast warned or said failed on deaf ears. Nigeria never took them serious or relevant; it was until IPOB moved that Nigerian government paid attention. The court ruled and ordered the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu, yet Buhari refused. Everybody that believes in one Nigeria has talked, they have cried, shouted and threatened fire yet Buhari has shown how irrelevant they are.
Nigeria has further proven how worthless they are as Nigerians. They will take our resource, leave us in penury and prone to diseases despite being in hunger and nothing will happen. IPOB has proven the difference; they listen and fear the name Biafra. IPOB will answer them and stand them equally; they will conform to our demand to show we can't be cajoled. If this has not taught Ohaneze and resource control militants lesson on the need to come together under IPOB to fight for one flag and control our destinies, then somebody is lost forever. If the detention of Nnamdi Kanu cannot unite us, there is nothing that can unite us.
