BIAFRA HAS COME TO STAY, ITS NOW OR NEVER-- NNAMDI KANU

NNAMDI KANU A MAN OF GREAT COURAGE

Article Written by Okonkwo Isaac Somto of Family Writers
Nnamdi Kanu with Kuff

On May 30th 1967, the Eastern National Consultative Assembly led by Dr. Alvan Ikoku, mandated His Excellency General Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu to declare the then Eastern Nigeria, the Republic of Biafra. General Ojukwu took up the challenge and declared the Republic of Biafra on that historic day. On July 6th 1967, the whole world declared a war of genocide against the Biafran people, with some Islamic fundamentalist like Usman Katsina boasting that Biafra would be liquidated in 24 hours, that 24 hours later became a long three years of Biafran struggle to emancipate the entire black race from the yoke of white colonialism, racism and hatred. By 1970 over 3.5 million Biafrans in defence of their country and freedom had paid the supreme sacrifice with their lives. 

Now fast forward back to our time, Biafrans now have a new hero in Nnamdi Kanu (NWA CHINIKE). Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra and director of radio Biafra is now the new face and symbol of the Biafra movement. Nnamdi Kanu was illegally arrested on the 14th of October 2015 by the Nigeria DSS on orders from (The Africa Hitler) Buhari. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu before his arrest have been speaking against the injustice, killing and atrocities been directed towards his people in Nigeria. Nnamdi Kanu who is a natural born-leader, took up the mantel to lead his people (Biafrans) to the promise land (Biafra) and together they call for the independence of territories that constituted the Biafran Republic, established in 1967 and re-annexed by Nigeria in 1970, following a civil war that claimed between 3.5 million lives. Till this day Biafrans are still hunted down and killed like animals even in their own state by the Nigeria armed forces under the command of the "African Hitler" Buhari and his follow brothers (The Hausa-Fulani's).  

The near attempt by Buhari and his follow Northerner leaders to dance with Islamising the Biafran people through the activities of the Boko Haram is a fatal mistake they will live to regret. The Republic of Biafra will be progressive, strong, democratic and forward looking and will be joining the International Community to foster peace and economic empowerment to all the people of the world. The Nigeria government has failed to provide for security of life of the Biafran people because they themselves are the perpetrators; they are the same people who continue to spill the blood of innocent Biafrans.
Since the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu millions of Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) have been protesting all around the world for his release and also for their right for self-determination but about 3000 IPOB have been killed in Nigeria by the Nigeria Armed forces. Millions of Biafrans still continue to make sure they keep the fire burning and Nnamdi kanu, who is loved and adored by the indigenous people of Biafra, continue to remain strong, calm and courageous even in the lion’s den.

When interviewed by some members of FAMILY WRITERS on the 19 of February 2016, Nnamdi Kanu had this to say:

SIR, HAVE YOU EVER FELT DETERRED OVER BIAFRA STRUGGLE, FOLLOWING YOUR UNLAWFUL DETENTION AND WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU HAVE FOR BIAFRANS?

“Never!  Such has never crossed my mind. The Biafra struggle must continue and my detention cannot stop it. It is either Biafra or Death. We must not give up and must continue working hard because it is making a lot of impact. We should remember our fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters who have given their lives towards the restoration of Biafra. Their sacrifices should not be in vain, as they are our heroes and heroines. May Chukwuabiama bless them all and bless their households. We must not forget the sacrifices we have made towards the restoration of Biafra. We should keep propagating the gospel of the restoration of Biafra. The World must hear our voice and at the end WE MUST WIN! God bless all lovers of freedom and Biafrans".--Nnamdi Kanu.

I was privileged to speak with him "one on one" during one of the court proceedings in Abuja and what I saw was a man who was willing to lay down his life for Biafra no matter the cost. I saw a man so determined, Courageous and strong, even his enemies tremble at the sound of his voice. A man who continues to drive on, where those with a lion heart would have given up, I saw a man who remained calm and positive even in the midst of a stormy weather. I felt so humbled and encouraged with the words that were coming out of his mouths. I felt so blessed and honoured to be born in the time of Nnamdi Kanu’s reign. I said to myself, no matter the consequence that befalls me, I will follow Nnamdi Kanu and Biafra, to the very end. Its Biafra or Death!

GOD BLESS NNAMDI KANU AND BLESS THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF BIAFRA!
