BIAFRA: THE NAME THAT TREMBLES THE ENEMIES AND CONFLAGRATES THEIR CAMPS

BIAFRA: THE NAME THAT TREMBLES THE ENEMIES AND CONFLAGRATES THEIR CAMPS

The name BIAFRA, is a nomenclature the people of the old Eastern region in the contraption called Nigeria, was identified with, well over decades of years before the advent of Fredrick Lugard and his fellow colonialists that conceptualized the amalgamation theory of Nigeria.

The original, untainted map of Africa, has Biafra conspicuously contained with no description of any country known as Nigeria. This further portrays the originality and superiority of Biafra as a nation over and above Nigeria even as clearly inscribed on the floor of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in London. There is a display of a list of nations including Biafra that had existed dating back to the 17th, 18th and down to early 19th centuries. Up till date, those historical inscriptions on the floor of the BBC are yet evidenced without Nigeria included.

The nomenclature Biafra, was given to a class of the Israelites who historically journeyed on their way from Egypt to Canaan the promised land. They conspired with Aaron to build a golden calf which served as their god (idol) to abridge the vacuum created by the absence of Moses whose anticipated return from Mount Sinai got delayed. According to biblical accounts, he was there for forty days and forty nights to obtain the tablets of the 10 commandments of the Almighty God, for the children of Israel during their encampment in the wilderness. There subsequently journeyed from the wilderness to Ethiopia and then down to Agulu, the present day Agulu-Eri in Anambra State, Biafraland.

This set of Israeli immigrants into this part of the world, were christened Biafrans because of their behavioral instincts patterned after God. The name Biafra means 'Bia furu ndi neme ka Chineke' (Come and see those that behave like God). From time immemorial, Biafra has been a nation peopled by godly class of human species just like their Creator (Chukwu Okike-Abiama). They are descendants of Jacob, God's chosen among the nations of the earth, directly from the tribe of Eri.

The sacredness attached to the name Biafra, is such that darkness cannot comprehend and at the mention of the name, within the spiritual and physical spheres, the devil and all his cohorts, stutter, scramble, tremble and flee to avert the conflagration, particularly within their camps in the contraption called Nigeria.

Within the Nigerian electronic media platforms, call-in to any of their audience participatory programs where Biafra name is mentioned, cause waves of abrupt/ unsettling reactions. The brown-envelope and compromised journalists will just get the Biafran calls truncated as such gravely neutralize their evil activities.

The Biafran nomenclature scares the devil and his agents. It is a name whose bearers should be glad they are associated with anywhere because of the enormous blessings embedded therein, quite unlike Nigeria the citizens are ashamed getting identified both within and without, due to the evils associated with that name.

Millions of people around the world today, want to identify with Biafrans ostensibly due to the diverse rich endowments these specially blessed children of God are associated with. Biafrans, be proud of your identity and firmly stand in the struggle for your total emancipation from this slavish contraption of the British called Nigeria and all that she represents.
