Self-defence is a counter measure that involves defending the well-being of oneself or of another from harm.

Chapter VII,Article 51 of the United Nations Charter states the following: Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of collective or individual self-defence if an armed attack occurs against a member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to maintain international peace and security. Measures taken by members in exercise of this right of self-defence shall be immediately reported to the Security Council and shall not in any way affect the authority and responsibility of the Security Council under the present Charter to take at any time such action as it deems necessary in order to maintain or restore international peace and security.

The massacre of innocent Biafrans has continued unabated, every parts of Biafraland is flowing with bloods of innocent men, women and children. From Onitsha, Aba, Enugu, Ogoni to Bayelsa,children have been made orphans, women forced to become widows and men burying and mourning loved ones. The "crimes" of those killed by the Islamic terror squad in the uniforms of Nigeria armed forces is asking for freedom to govern themselves, demanding for their rights to self-determination and to be free to practice their religion. Is the Indigenous People of Biafra no longer recognized by the United Nations? Is the UN waiting for a full blown war to begin before they speak? Why the conspiratory silence? What a wicked and barbaric world!

The Organization of Emerging African States (OEAS) has mandated the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to defend themselves against the continuous killings by the Islamic terror squad whom have been perpetrating evil under the shadow of the Nigeria armed forces. Solicitor and OEAS' chief administrative officer, Jonathan Levy has urged Biafrans to "form armed units to defend themselves" against alleged violence at the hands of security agencies, who have always denied they are violent against Biafrans.

Most Biafrans wants the restoration of Biafra through a referendum and not by violence. The peaceful protest embarked by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) since the incarceration of their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has revealed to the world the peaceful nature of Biafrans even in the face of provocation by the Nigeria armed forces. But Biafrans have been pushed to the wall and will not allow the planned extermination of their people by President Muhammadu Buhari to continue. Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has activated their right to self-defence but that does not mean they will begin to attack people unjustly. IPOB is not a terrorist group and do not have large amounts of weapons stored away as insinuated by the Nigeria government.

I urge Britain and other cohorts providing arms and ammunition to Nigeria to take a look at the Case Concerning the Military and Paramilitary Activities in and Against Nicaragua (Nicaragua v. United States of America) which was decided on June 27, 1986.

Biafrans will organize themselves and try to mitigate some of the casualties they have been suffering and they have demanded only for catapults.

  1. What the world is waiting for is to back the beast of daura that IPOB is a terror group in order to keep our leader in prison but the international community must make no mistake about the all seeing eye(GOD) and whatever they wish Biafrans for demanding their right will come upon them family by family, clan by clan and nation by nation as an adage has it that he that lives in a glass house should have noting to do with stone throwing. The measure the world give to Biafrans is the measure they will receive.
