BIAFRA: FAMILY WRITERS INTERVIEW WITH PRINCESS CHIDINMA KANU

INTERVIEW WITH PRINCESS CHIDINMA KANU BY IBEH GIFT AMARACHI AND SOMTOCHUKWU OF FAMILY WRITERS/BIAFRA JOURNALIST
Princess with member of Family Writers

Princess Chidinma Kanu is the Sister of the Leader of the indigenous People of Biafra Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. She was interviewed by Somtochukwu Isaac and Ibeh Gift Amarachi of Family writers following the detention of her Brother the Leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra and Director of Radio Biafra/Biafra Television Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.            

HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE BIAFRA STRUGGLE?  

 It is in the Blood. You don't just wake up and join a struggle. There must be the passion. My heart bleeds whenever I wake up and see underage Biafran Children suffer in the street and do not have a choice; because they have to help their Parents put Food on the table. It hurts me a lot. The marginalization of Biafrans, really hurts me.
                                                        
A LOT OF SPECULATIONS HAS BEEN MADE AS TO WHY THE VOICES OF "THE KANUS" HAS NOT BEEN HEARD, NOT UNTIL THE DETENTION OF MAZI NNAMDI KANU. DID "THE KANUS" JOIN THE STRUGGLE BECAUSE OF THE DETENTION OF MAZI NNAMDI KANU'?  

 When it comes to a struggle, there are a lot of Silent Dedicated and Passionate people who have done a lot, more than people you get to hear from on a daily basis. We have been doing everything within our reach to uphold the Biafran struggle.                                                      

THE NIGERIA GOVERNMENT CHARGED MAZI NNAMDI KANU FOR TREASON, LABELLING THE AGITATION OF BIAFRA A TREASONABLE OFFENCE. WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON THE CHARGES?  
It is very funny. How can they charge him for treasonable offence? When under the International Law and UN Charter Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,did absolutely nothing. Nigeria is also a signatory to the UN Charter. Everybody saw Mohammadu Buhari's testimony calling and soliciting that Palestinians should be granted Freedom. So why can't same happen in Nigeria?  Nnamdi Kanu went there with David Nwawuisi that was charged for treason as well. David Nwawuisi is a Young Engineer who was asked to mount Transmitters and the mounting of transmitters was labeled a treasonable offence.  But Bokoharam has been going around killing everyday and the President of Nigeria Mohammadu Buhari has called for dialogue and wants to grant them amnesty. They are killing unarmed Biafrans who their only crime is calling for the release of their Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Very sad.
                               
WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE CLAMPDOWN OF UNARMED BIAFRANS JUBILATING OVER THE RELEASE OF MAZI NNAMDI KANU?

Honestly it is sad and I am extending my heartfelt sympathy to the Families of those who loosed their Children as regards to the protest. Unarmed Biafrans jubilating for the release of the Leader Of The Indigenous People Of Biafra, who were killed by the Nigeria force,i will say to them that, in their deaths Biafra must be restored. We will always remember them and their families should know that, they may have died but their deaths is not in vain. I want their Families to know that, in us they still have their Sons and Daughters back. 

A LOT OF BIAFRANS WHO ARE BITTERED OVER THE KILLINGS OF UNARMED BIAFRAN PROTESTERS ARE PLEADING THAT THEY SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO DEFEND THEMSELVES FROM NIGERIA FORCE. WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON IT?  

In my opinion we should continue doing non-violence, but this is for me and I don't know about the others. I don't have the power to stop millions of IPOB members. According to the UN Charter the Indigenous People of Biafra have the right to Self-Defence.  But my piece of advice will be to follow and to adhere to the instructions of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.  In other to prove to the World that we are not terrorist, the more they are killing us, the more we are coming out. How many Biafrans will the Nigeria Government kill? I am calling on the United Nations, Amnesty International, World Leaders, Human Right Activist all over the World, Men and Women of good conscience, to come to the rescue of Biafrans because the Nigeria military want to terminate Biafrans from the surface of the earth. The genocide that happened in 1967-1970 is repeating itself again and I am believing that Eze Chukwuokikeabiama will never abandon us. 

SOME NIGERIA POLITICIANS AND THEIR ALLIES STATED THAT, THOSE AGITATING FOR BIAFRA ARE MISCREANTS AND ATTENTION SEEKERS. WHAT IS YOUR REACTION TO THAT STATEMENT? 


 They are talking garbage. It is rubbish they are talking about. We know what we want for sure. Biafra is our goal and aspiration and there is nothing anybody can do about it. We have the right to call for the sovereign State of Biafra. We don't have good roads, we don't have anything. There is no infrastructure in Biafra, which you all know. For how long are we going to suffer? Someone has to rise up and say no to injustice against the Biafran people and that is what we are doing collectively and believe you me, the Biafra that we are agitating for must be restored. Most of this people tagging Biafrans to be miscreants and fraudsters are the people who have embezzled the public funds. They are people who have sold their conscience for a Sachet of Water. They are the people who cannot stand for the kids. They are the people who does not care for the poor masses. We don't have the basic necessities of Life in Biafraland. There is no water and I can go on and on, but what I have to say in regards to that is, they should be ignored because they are evil. They care about their immediate families and not other people.

DO YOU THINK BIAFRANS ARE NOT UNITED?  

We have always live together as one people, with the Ijaws,Igbanke,Ibibios,Efiks and other Biafrans. It was the divide and rule system that the British taught Nigeria Government that disintegrated us. But thank God for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the Leader Of The Indigenous People Of Biafra and the Icon of Radio Biafra,who has been able to enlighten us more and I think our people have assimilated it and we have known that we are one people. We might not be united some years back, but not anymore. Since the inception of Radio Biafra, a lot has been exposed to us. And if we don't love ourselves as they claimed, then why are we dying for the sake of Biafra and the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu? We are very much united.

FOLLOWING THE DEMOLITION OF PROPERTIES BELONGING TO BIAFRANS IN LAGOS STATE, WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE DO YOU HAVE TO GIVE TO BIAFRANS INVESTING IN SOUTH-WEST AND NORTHERN PART OF NIGERIA?
 
I am advising them to come back home and invest. The Nigeria Government has abandoned us in terms of everything, so they have to come back home and invest. Let them make home their headquarters, because if anything happens, Biafrans are always the number one target. Our people should be able to learn and not wait for somebody to always speak to them. These incidents have been happening for years, the KANO RIOT and a lot of them. Yorubas and Arewas have been issuing out warnings. But,let's not forget that the Divide and Rule system forced our people to leave their homes, in search of greener pastures. We don't have infrastructures, we have millions of unemployed graduates in Biafraland,but I'm begging them to come back home. 

WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE DO YOU HAVE TO GIVE TO BIAFRANS PROTESTING FOR THE RELEASE OF LEADER OF IPOB AND THE RESTORATION OF BIAFRA? 

My advice to my Brothers and Sisters, Mothers and Fathers, to my fellow Biafrans is, that they should keep on keeping on and remain resolute about the Sovereign State Of Biafra. I am asking them to be formidable and join hands to make sure that Director is released. "Onuru ube Nwanne Agbanoso"(Don't run away when you hear the cries of your Brother), that is our custom. They should remain resolute and at the end we must win. Nobody gets Freedom on a platter of Gold and if we don't make these sacrifices, we can't get Biafra. Be resolute and at the end, we must win.
