THE MURDEROUS GOWON IS STILL ALIVE WHILE THE BLOOD OF BIAFRANS STILL FLOWS

THE MURDEROUS GOWON IS STILL ALIVE WHILE THE BLOOD OF BIAFRANS STILL FLOWS
Gowon

It is pertinent to flashback on the major cause of the civil war which took place in 1967. This will shed more light on this piece of writing. An accord was struck between General Ojukwu and General Gowon which took place at Aburi in Ghana. From the content, any truthful human being can testify to the fact that His Excellency Odumegwu Emeka Ojukwu tried to avert the war then through that accord in Aburi but Gowon who accepted and concurred to it, came back to Nigeria and refused to abide by it. It became a bizarre because the agreement reached in order to end the killing of Biafrans especially in the northern part of Nigeria was turned down by Gowon.

According to those who interpreted Gowon's refusal, said he never understood what Ojukwu meant at Aburi because he was not learned as at that time. It was when he arrived Nigeria, the enlightened, opened his eyes to the actual meaning of the accord he signed. This led to his refusal to abide by it. He made a U-turn thereby leaving Ojukwu with no other choice than to defend his people at all .

Following this development and to make matters worse, Gowon continued to subject Biafrans to inhumane treatments, siphoned their resources while the outspoken ones among the people are slaughtered in the presence of their people like animals. His Excellency Odumegwu Emeka Ojukwu patiently went further and tried to avert the impending war then by replaying the audio tape which he recorded in Ghana during the accord between him, Gowon and others.

Unfortunately, after all the efforts by the Biafran warlord, the war monger  Gowon and his brothers did not  repent and this led to the declaration of self defence and the defence of the Biafran territory by Hon. Emeka Ojukwu. In the process of trying to flex what they thought was executive muscle, Gowon and other blood thirsty war mongers committed more crimes against humanity and later declared war totally on Biafrans where they murdered thousands of Biafrans in cold blood. Many people thought the evil Gowon and his brothers committed in Biafra land came to an end after the war but up until this day, crimes against humanity is still being committed, evil is still perpetrated and the blood of Biafrans is still flowing like a river in Nigeria. Today, Muhammadu Buhari has taken over from where Gowon stopped. The repetition of what happened then is happening now in Biafra and the blood of Biafrans, once again flows heavily.

It is done openly through the masked and bloody democratic system in Nigeria.
This time again, Biafrans are also trying seriously to avert the impending doom by carrying out all their activities towards the restoration of Biafra legally and peacefully but the Nigerian government led by Muhammadu Buhari, his brothers and other war mongers are at it again just like their brother Gowon. I know the world is waiting for us to pick up arms and fight against injustice and evil before they will voice out and act; but let it be seen and known by everyone that Biafrans are peaceful people as they have always been, while they will continue to confront these injustices and evil peacefully and legally. A time will come when men will do anything to counter injustice and evil because when injustice and evil becomes an acceptable law, resistance in any form becomes a duty. If nothing is done now peacefully, a time will come when Biafrans will roar and fight back.

Biafrans want peace because they are peaceful people. They want justice because they respect it and they want Biafra because it is their nation and true identity before Lugard took that away from them. Its their God-given identity so they deserve to be free from Nigeria. If war arises today because of this quest, blame the Nigerian government led by Muhammadu Buhari, his northern brothers and other war mongers who hate peace and freedom. They love to shed blood. Whatever their evil plans are, they should have it at the back of their minds that this is no longer 1967. So many things have changed, the world has moved on from what it used to be and Biafrans are more enlightened than before.
