Dear Mr. President, I am taking off my entire professional helmet and writing to you in great resentment as a Biafran citizen deeply concerned about the levels of cruelty been directed to my people by you.

Mr. President, you have ordered your armed forces to shoot and to kill when they come in contact with the Indigenous People of Biafra, and I most state that I seriously despise you for that. In short, the grudge I have for you is so superfluity that words cannot even paraphrase. I atone if am being too direct, I just want to start with an open mind and I bet you will understand my veracious confrontation. I write as one of the countless Biafran citizens, that have fallen victim to your viciousness, barbarous and savage rule. I write to you with a heavy heart for the many men, women and children whose lives were lost or destroyed by your spurn for Biafrans.

I write to you amidst the bluster war on my people that are been killed like animals in our streets by men that call themselves the Nigeria Armed Forces. What do you really want Mr. President? We Biafrans, have peacefully and diplomatically asked for self-determination from Nigeria. We are merely demonstrating our rights for self-determination and we are very much entitled to that.  Why the unjust killing of my people?  Yes, you openly vowed to keep Nigeria as one, even if it means using the blood of my people to do so but Mr. President you have gone too far. There is much killings to keep Nigeria as one Or is there another agenda to start militancy? You can't point to the fact that your killing of Biafrans has to do with our fight for a sovereign state, in fact it’s far deeper than that. Mr. President, your hatred for Biafrans is so striking for all to see and that is why you would rather risk another war on Biafrans, than handling this peacefully. I implore you to have a rethink, because you have to be blind to reality if you think that Biafrans will continue to stay defenseless to your constant attacks and killings. You must understand that you killing us won't stop our fight for a sovereign state of Biafra, but only encourage us to fight back harder.

Mr. President, haven't you done enough harm already? You ordered the illegal arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu on the 14th of October 2015, and as if that wasn't enough for dictatorship, you still went ahead to display your tyranny by demanding from your armed forces that they shoot innocent Biafran protesters. Over 4000 Biafran protester have been massacred by your armed forces in less than a year into your barbaric administration. I even witnessed the crude arm of your government, on the 30th of May 2016 in Nkpor, Biafra land. A day that was meant for all Biafrans to come together and celebrate a peaceful "Heroes Remembrance Day" but instead, you turned it into a "Rampage Day" by sending your figurehead armed forces to shoot and kill unarmed peaceful Biafrans celebrating in their large numbers. Over 70 Biafrans were killed and more than 80 unlawfully arrested, not to talk about several others who were kidnapped on their way to the event, many were critical injured with bullet .

So tell me Mr. President, what are you really after? Peace or war? We Biafrans are tired of asking for our freedom in a peaceful and diplomatic manner, even though, Human Right International, have encouraged us to keep our peace, we will no longer present ourselves as sacrificial lambs waiting to be slaughtered, instead we now demand for our freedom even if it means war.  Mr. President, the conclusion of what I have to say to you is this: If it is  peace you want, Biafrans will give you peace but if its war you want, Biafrans will give you war to the fullest. Either ways, our main goal is Biafra and we no longer care how we get it, as long as we do. Peace or War? Choose, Mr. President.

    There's nothing to write home about than to give them what ever they want peace or war but I can see that the zoo doesn't need any peace,they think that it's 1967-1970 when our heroes fought with bar hands. this time they would understand that we mean business to bring back our Nation if they they fail to respond to the restoration of BIAFRA.Buhanama be ready to hear from us enough is enough BIAFRA must be restored in the name of CHUKWUOKIKEABIAMA we've prayed ise ise.
