Biafrans, What Is Your Case?

Biafrans, What Is Your Case?

By Okonkwo Isaac Somto
For Family Writers              

This question is often asked, what do Biafrans want? Why do they want a sovereign state? Why can't they stay put in Nigeria? Is Biafra the solution to the problems in Nigeria? So many questions have been asked and also answered but I still want to state our case. I have never considered myself a Nigerian, always a Biafran and I believe that Biafrans should separate from Nigeria.

Their [government] want us to be one Nigeria, We have the oil but they (Hausa-Fulanis) are the ones who are squandering the money. We Biafrans don't want to be in the same country with people we don't share the same mentality, religion, culture, language, accent or way of life and we can't live with them, mainly because they hate and despise us and will stop at nothing to make sure they keep killing us and destroying our properties. Biafra was known as a provincial system which didn't recognise any of the states created by Nigeria and its agents.

In 1970 Nigeria divided the people to decentralize the unity of Biafrans. We believe that the 36 States and 774 Local Government structure imposed via decrees by officers from the occupational government of Nigeria render the people of Biafra an insignificant minority. The so called amalgamation contract aimed at integrating people from the north and the south within 100 years since it was issued. The contract, now at the National Archive of London, was created in 1914 by the then governor general of
Nigeria Frederick Lugard, The document, opposed by the political class and the media in Lagos, expired in 2014.

This means that the component parts of what was Nigeria can now go their ways. We Biafrans continue to strive for survival under harsh condition, forced exiles. Gatherings of Biafrans and places of Christian worship in the northern part of the country are regular targets of Islamic terror, spearheaded today by Boko-Haram. Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari is a former military chief who served in the Nigerian Army from 1961 until 1985. He committed genocidal crimes in Biafra. he headed military operations in Nsukka, Abagana and Nkpor Junction in Biafra where soldiers, under his leaderships, allegedly destroyed villages and killed millions of Biafrans.

Muhammdu Buhari who said this when asked about what he will do about the Igbo-Biafrans -"the Igbos hate me for what happened during the Biafran war". "I don't have any regret, and at such do not owe any apology to them, infact if there is a repeat of the civil war again, I will kill more Igbos to save the country". This is the kind of hatred the Hausa-Fulanis have for us Biafrans as you can see. Again a country as big as Nigeria where the 2016 budget can go missing is not a country worth existing and living in, Isn't it a shame and a disgrace to the government of Nigeria, that a Budget can go missing? Go missing? Very laughable but it also sounds like a conspiracy to me.

So are you still asking why Biafrans no long want the un-holy union with Nigeria? Apart from the facts that Biafran-states don't enjoy any social amenities and resource control from the federal government, Biafran states don't have good roads, hospitals, airports, industrials etc. Just like Ahamdu Bello said in the 12th october, 1960 “The new nation called Nigeria should be an estate of our great Grandfather Uthman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power. We use the minorities in the North as willing tools and the South as a conquered territory and never allow them to have control over their future”.-Ahamdu Bello.

But no amount of killing, threats or arrests will stop us from pursuing our freedom – self-determination for Biafra and Biafrans. So what is our case Biafrans? Our case is this: we don't want the resource control, we don't want the social amenities, we don't want the presidency, we don't want derivation, we don't want one Nigeria, what we want is BIAFRA!
