BIAFRA: THE ILLEGAL ARREST OF EGWUATU CHUKS AND PRINCE DAN OF FAMILY WRITERS IS A THREAT TO JOURNALISM ACROSS THE GLOBE

BIAFRA: THE ILLEGAL ARREST OF EGWUATU CHUKS AND PRINCE DAN OF FAMILY WRITERS IS A THREAT TO JOURNALISM ACROSS THE GLOBE

By Sunday Okafor
For Family Writers Press


Biafrans, the illegal arrest of the great Family Writers Press Correspondents, is a threat to journalism across Africa and the world at large.

Am so saddened and depressed over the continuous arrest, maltreatment, torture and killing of innocent Biafran activists agitating for an Independent Nation, expressing their right for Self determination, equal right and justice which is enshrined in International Law (UN CHARTER).

The continuous abduction, molestations, and raping of Biafrans by these culprits of Nigeria parading themselves as Soldiers under a contraption built on malevolence is not conforming by Biafrans across the globe. It is simply a threat frith across Nigeria and the world at large.

Biafrans, are peaceful people, lovely nation and nonviolently. We are only demanding for our right which is acknowledged by all indigenous people then, why is demanding for Biafra always causing nightmares for the gullible/uncivilized entity called Nigeria? Is there anywhere it was written in international law that freedom, justice, fairness, self determination, freedom of speech and equality is meant for few people alone? Capital NO. Right for self determination is for all Indigenous People which is enshrined under International Law.

Biafran journalists are been arrested, molested, kidnapped, and possibly maimed for only carrying out their duties. In Nigeria today, reporters have elected to censor themselves. In other words, see nothing, say nothing.

Recall, A vibrant and hardworking Biafran journalist under the umbrella of Family Writers Press was illegally abducted by Nigerian DSS on December 25, 2016 which his crime then was speaking against the illegal arrest and abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and also demanding for Biafra restoration. Moses Agbo's arrest clearly shows how deadly and wicked the evil concoction called Nigeria looks like. After much pressure on the selfish government of Nigeria, he was thereafter released on March 18, 2017 under torture, pain and maltreatment. This is why every attack against a journalist that goes unpunished invites the next one. Recently, Egwuatu Chuks and Prince Dan of Family Writers also were kidnapped by men of security operatives in Enugu State and proscribed them as terrorists because, they surfaced to give accurate report as regard to Enugu State Chairmanship Election on the 4th of November, 2017. This act of Nigerian Government and her security agencies is tremendously errant and should be put to an end or face the consequences for this horrible acts melted on innocent Biafran Journalists and her people perturbing for an Indigenous Nation (Biafra).

It is unprofessional committing an extremely cruel act against people (Journalists) who are supposed to be the back bone of truth and honesty in Nigeria. Why is it that Nigeria gutter media journalists are not kidnapped, illegally arrested or killed by Nigerian Military/SARS/Police like they do to innocent Biafran Journalists? Simply because, Nigerian Journalists are been bribed and forced by her blind government to carry out false propaganda against truth.

Oppressive governments around the world that wish to suppress free speech are clearly the biggest threat to press freedom. The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 Section 39 (1) states: "Every person shall be entitled to freedom of expression, including the freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart ideas and information without interference". But now freedom of expression in Nigeria is threatened even further.

I am on this note, urging Nigeria and Enugu State government to immediately release Egwuatu Chuks and Prince Dan because, they are armless journalists carrying out their duties when, Nigeria security agencies abducted them on the 4th of November, 2017.

Feeding the world with heartfelt information is never a crime.

On behalf of Family Writers Press and IPOB Worldwide, I equally urge Organization for Journalism globally, to stand out and speak against inhuman behaviors of Nigerian Armed Forces towards innocent Biafran Journalists. That is why Journalists and other outspoken people are, more than ever, being threatened, harassed, assaulted and sometimes killed for doing their jobs.

Finally, The world should urgently intervene in the atrocities been melted on innocent Biafran Journalists because, it's a threat to journalism across Africa and the world at large.
