Noam Chomsky wrote, “if we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all". This quote proves that there is nothing like freedom existing in Nigeria and for that reason, freedom doesn't exist in Nigeria. The Biafrans are being harassed, brutalized, maimed, tortured and killed on daily basis in Nigerian state without considering that we have human rights which shouldn't be violated.

We are being despised by Nigerians for who we are, what we do and way of life, yet they don't want us to go, they want us to work as a slave for them, which is completely impossible.

Recently at Nkpor, an area in Onitsha Anambra State,aA National Youth Service Corps member who hails from the Arewa northern part of Nigeria flogged a Biafran student to coma at Ideal Minds Foundation Secondary School Nkpor, for writing “I am a Biafran" on his book. This singular act is an abuse of child rights as every child is entitled to freedom of expression and identity.

Many of us may not understand the meaning of this, but it simply means that the northerners hate the Biafrans whom they are feeding on with passion, and are doing everything possible to silence us and our motive. They intend to put fear in our children to make them deny their identity as Biafrans.

Some months ago, many Biafrans were also shot dead on May 30th 2016, during the Biafra Heroes' Remembrance Day at Nkpor, when Nigerian soldiers on orders of the tyrant president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari shot live bullets at random. Many school children were running helter skelter to avoid the spray bullets, while many of them were still cut up with the bullets and died instantly.
What has our children done to deserve all this crimes against humanity?

Aung San Suu Kyi said, "Freedom must be demanded and defended by those who have been denied it and by those who are already freed."
This proves it right that the world leaders are no longer interested to helping the enslaved gain their freedom. If not, why has the United States, United Nation, European Union and African Union kept quiet for the freedom of Biafra despite how resolute and serious we are.

Many people have died in the struggle for Biafra. Buhari himself has vowed to either die than to live and see Biafra as a country. We have been demanding for freedom since 1967 till date. Human right according to Robert C. Maynard rest on human dignity. The dignity of man is an ideal worth fighting for and worth dying for.  Right to freedom is our inalienable right and dignity which started even before some of us were born, and we must never give up towards the restoration of Biafra as we have started.

Man just like Biafrans are nature's most wonderful creature; Torturing him, crushing him, murdering him for his belief and ideal is more than a violation of human rights, It is a crime against humanity. I want to let Nigeria and the entire world to know that according to Kofi Annan, "one cannot enjoy security without development and one cannot enjoy development without security, and one cannot enjoy either without respect for human rights."
Nnamdi Kanu 's right as well as other Biafrans has been more than violated in Nigeria and such will never let peace return to Nigeria.

The UN must begin to agree with people to defend them from injustice. Injustice in Nigeria is on the rise, and may result in third World War to the world if not addressed. We are Biafrans and lovers of freedom and have right to existence.
As long as we are being denied right to freedom which is our right to live, peace will never return to Nigeria because they never wanted us to live.
Biafra freedom is sacrosanct.
Free Biafra
Free Nnamdi kanu

  1. Biafra freedom is sacrosanct. There are about 250 ethnic tribes in Nigeria and none of them sat together to agree that they should be called Nigeria. Nigeria is a concoction and fraudulent state of British imperialism, which expired in 2014 after 100 years of experiment. Nigeria was a name given to these 250 ethnicities by the wife of Lord Lugard of Britain. We must be set free from this fraud and criminal enterprise called Nigeria.
