FROM MILITANTS TO FREEDOM FIGHTERS: MANY GROUPS IN ONE QUEST: MY CASE WITH NDA

FROM MILITANTS TO FREEDOM FIGHTERS: MANY GROUPS IN ONE QUEST: MY CASE WITH NDA
   

By Ifeanyi Chijioke
For Family Writers

I must first of us duff my cap for Niger Delta Avengers, despite the fact I have a case with them, I cannot stop loving, cherishing and honoring them. Niger Delta Avengers is the reason I can now sleep without thought of endless subjugation. They have given us a sense of pride and reminded the world that we are Biafrans, the linage of David and Samson. I cannot stop loving other fighters, Ben and others, different groups with one mission.
   
Avengers chose not to confront soldiers; their bloodless campaign is mesmerizing, saying and doing, moving without encumbrances. Despite the heavy military presence, activities are going on like no security is stationed. They are another violent but like Nnamdi Kanu, taking out everything but respecting human life. We are Biafrans and we forbid bloodshed, the beauty of life is live and why must mortals take what they can’t give?
   
However, that is my case with Avengers, had they opted to killing soldiers, no soldier would remain in Biafra land. There won’t be soldiers to kill over 30 innocent Biafrans and neither will there be soldiers to molest residents of Gbaramatu. There won’t be soldiers to kidnap our royal father and there won’t be soldiers to chase our people away. This genocide going on in Biafra land won’t be going on because soldiers will be gone or on the run. That is why I had the greatest joy when soldiers were raided and killed in their house-boat by other fighters. Killing these shameless soldiers is an act of defense and not bloodshed.
   
I will be logical here, these hopeless Nigerian soldiers invaded our land, whisked away our traditional ruler. They invaded Gbaramatu and killed innocent citizens; they arrested innocent citizens and placed them under torture in the name of being militants. Reports had it that soldiers stole pot of soup and molested residents for no just cause. What kind of act is that, when a group as armed as they are confronts them, it is highly justified, they the soldiers find strength in unarmed people and the attack against them is a relief?
   
On 30th of May last year, another phase of genocide came into play; they have sustained the murder of peaceful and unarmed Biafrans showing their displeasure in a most civil way. They shoot at sight, like our lives are worthless, they force us to disappear, they molest us, they arrest us, they use chemical weapon against us and shoot us at random on praying grounds. They cause us grief and cause us pains; they make us widows and widowers. They make us orphans and suffer us and make life unbearable for us. Why spare them or is attack on such soldiers not justice?
   
They incarcerated the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra despite court orders, what defense is therein, how could you condemn raid on worthless soldiers? Soldiers without any atom of pride, soldiers that shoot unarmed men and fall before armed counterparts. I humbly solicit that there may be understanding of what we are passing through. Destruction of pipelines gives us fortitude to endure but killing of Nigerian Soldiers give us a sense of justice.
   
We have graduated from being militants that fought for resource control and amnesty to freedom fighters fighting for sovereignty of old Eastern region (Biafra). This is the greatest decision and improvement that deserves praise. Freedom fighting is different from militancy and this is why everything goes for that very cause.
   
There are different people and fighters in this quest and everybody must be accommodated, hence you are not working against Biafra, you are working for Biafra. Everybody must not go with one style; we respect Avengers for their bloodless war. We are not calling for blood but let it be on your mind that blood is flowing and making an ocean. The question is whose blood is flowing and who is causing the flow.
   
Finally, I must confess how amazing you have been, I can now boast to those that beheaded the head of Biafrans. I can now say their untrained soldiers cannot stop us, I can proudly say we are warriors and conquerors. I can proudly say we have integrity and dignity, I can now say money and amnesty cannot buy us. I can now say we are “talk and do”. I want to appreciate all of you, both those killing soldiers and those bombing pipelines. Yes we respect the policy of Niger Delta Avengers but it is important to also pour our heart that when a Nigerian soldier dies, justice is done to us.

    They're killing us massacred us and beheaded us for no reason just because we're demanding for our freedom. The contraption called Nigeria has expired since many years ago so why are they jealous of our future that can give us more hope? The contraption called Nigeria has nothing good to offer than to waste an innocent Biafrans.I humbly congratulates the DNA for their co-operations and efforts to prove to the World that they're for Biafra restoration all haile DNA all haile Biafrans.

  3. This biafra Herald writers should learn nit to personalize this struggle for Biafra . Every line if thought cannot end in Nnamdi Kanu and this agitation is jot about releasing Nnamdi Kanu because these boys that are murdered daily for thus struggle are no less mortals than Nnamdi Kanu.
    We all appreciate the sacrifices he is making but Mandela was in prison for 27 Years while Abc were talking about end of apartheid not release of Nelson Mandela.
    Avengers must do all that needs to be done otherwise they naive to be carrying gone and do nit want to use it. Nigerian army is trained to kill in combat so if you carry gone in the creek better use it or your dead body will be displayed in the open or in mass grave if in doubt pls ask boko haram.

  4. Nwanne, release of Nnamdi KANU is as vital as the engine in the car.
    He needed to be released bcos he has not done anything wrong.
    We cannot live on top of injustice to ask for justice.
