IPOB: ARE BIAFRANS NOW FREEDOM FIGHTERS IN NIGERIA?

IPOB: ARE BIAFRANS NOW FREEDOM FIGHTERS IN NIGERIA?


By Sunday Okafor
For family writers

Permit me to use this medium to explain to you the essence of fighting for freedom. Before I proceed, I will like you to know the meaning of freedom fighter and who can be referred to as a freedom fighter.

Quotes; A freedom fighter is a person who think that his ethnic group are treated unfairly  and he/she works hard to free his people from such oppressive political slavery or tyranny. Also a freedom fighter is a person who embarks on a battle against an established force of dictatorship and tyranny to take part in resistance movement against an oppressive political or social establishment. A freedom fighter is a person who think his native ethnic group is not free, and is working to have freedom for his group. Most often this means that a freedom fighter wants his people to have own nation and independence and/or to get rid of oppressors. People who think like this are said to think in a nationalist way. Freedom fighter is a positive term - this means that he or she calls a person "freedom fighter" only if he doesn't use violence. There are also freedom fighters who do not use violence at all. For example the Mahatma Gandhi, Dalai Lama  etc and Nnamdi Kanu belong to this category.

A freedom fighter can also be regarded as a person or someone who takes part in a revolutionary struggle to achieve a political and social goal. One of the strong example of a freedom fighter, fighting for the freedom of his people without violence nor bloodshed is no other person than the great Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB) and also the Director of Radio Biafra /BiafraTV.

Nnamdi Kanu is a freedom fighter who forsaked his wealth and family to seek the freedom or right of his people(Biafrans), as well following the rule of law and international law in agitating for self-determination.

This is a word from him and it says, "I AM NNAMDI KANU THE LION THAT CHOSE DEATH OVER THE ABUSE OF MY PEOPLE. I INSTEAD DIE THAN RENOUNCE BIAFRA, GIVE ME BIAFRA OR KILL ME IS WHERE I STAND".

Now looking at the statement above it shows how fanatical he is. But lets look at some of the well known freedom fighters both current and the past leaders.
Niger Delta Avengers (NDA)- They are a group of freedom fighters who started operation against their oppressors (the so called Nigeria government) on January 14, 2016 and became fighters against injustice but they declared war on the Nigeria government in order to cripple the economy of the country that has been denying them their obligations and privileges as the very state that powers the economy of Nigeria with their own oil wells. Instead of empowering the youths and also help develop these oil regions, the federal government of Nigeria left them to suffer and die after much pollution caused by the same government who only feel the need to take the oil in the region, while the people living there keep suffering from severe oil spillage and infections caused by corrupt Nigeria politicians and leaders.

Also looking at some freedom fighters who fought before this present generation; GENERAL CHUKWUEMEKA ODUMEGWU OJUKWU was born on November 4, 1933 and became the leader of the Republic Of Biafra(ROB) at "34" in the year 1967 to 1970.

SUBHAS CHANDRA BOSE was born on January 23, 1897. He was the head of state and prime minister of war and foreign affairs of provisional government of free India. He based in Japan at the age of "41" and lead the liberation and independence of India from the British Imperial master, in 1938.

NELSON ROLIHLAHLA MENDELA "MANDIBA" is a well known African freedom fighter, he was born on July 18, 1918 and became actively involved in the Anti-Appartheid movement at the age of "24" in the year 1942.

Now my question is, "did all this freedom fighters mentioned above succeed? of course yes they succeeded! then why are people without dignity saying Nnamdi Kanu won't succeed? Now let me make it clear to those myopic and gullible individuals, Nnamdi Kanu is the most successful freedom fighter, fighting for equal right, freedom, and justice for his people, Biafrans. So age has nothing humanly possible to do with freedom fighting in as much as the person has the charisma and moral ability to lead and become a freedom fighter, you will emerge victoriouly.

Biafrans in Nigeria are now on the verge of extinction. Yes, extinction. President Muhammadu Buhari has done lots of human rights violations on Biafrans. His armed forces have been carrying out a secret agenda to keep killing and murdering Biafrans in Nigeria. It's no wonder Biafrans are now freedom fighters, fighting for their own sovereignty. Just recently, Amnesty international released a video and evidences to backup accusations levied against, Muhammadu Buhari and his armed forces. Biafrans are been executed and acid washed in Nigeria,

under the very noise of the British government(Nigeria colonial masters) and yet nothing is been done to stop this. It's no wonder Nnamdi Kanu took it upon himself to fight for the freedom and liberty of Biafrans suffering and dying in Nigeria. So, yes, you can call Biafrans freedom fighters, because we will keep fighting for our rights, freedom and the sovereign state of Biafra, because our very existence depends on it.

BIAFRA MUST STAND! Biafra or Death!! Nnamdi Kanu is the voice of the voiceless!!!
