The last broadcast of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the  courageous leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) globally, from the Israeli capital city of Jerusalem, was exceptionally epochal. Obedient to his command, over 50 million Biafrans were jolted to rise to their feet, to accord a one minute silence in honor of over 3.5 million Biafrans who died between the 1967 and 1970 Nigeria/Biafra war, those killed during different peaceful protests/prayer gatherings and as well as those Biafran youths who paid the ultimate prize in his father's compound at Afara-ukwu Ibeku, Umuahia on the 14th of September 2017, during the murderous invasion staged to have him summarily eliminated.

I listened and stood up. Drops of silent tears flowed down from my eyes and in the solitary state of my heart, I prayed for them all. Even good hearted non-Biafrans listening, emotionally joined us to commiserate with us as we remembered our fallen heroes and heroines. "We are all books of red. We all bleed whenever we are opened".

However, some dark,  evil and mischievous individuals did not see this very memorable action. They rather picked offense at the mention of a killed security dog called Jack. They were surprised that even a dog's name was mentioned in the broadcast. Some said they have lost their respect for the IPOB leader for ever mentioning a dog which also was killed alongside twenty eight (28) other courageous Biafrans by the ravaging Nigerian soldiers.

I am not surprised at all. In 1966 when  Odimegwu Ojukwu mentioned and advocated for Confederate State, people who saw him as their equals never understood him still. They bemoaned and bluntly rejected that intelligent opinion. It took them almost 48 good, unbroken years to fully realize that they needed such a Confederate State that the people's general, Odimegwu Ojukwu of blessed memory, earlier suggested. Till date, restructuring still eludes them. Biafrans are always ahead, irrefutably speaking.

Sometime ago, the United States of America (USA), celebrated a dog, a security dog which died of cancer while in active service. That dog was given a befitting burial. The pictures littered all over the internet for the world to see. You can search it out. In an era when people advocate for animal rights, Nigerians are shamelessly outraged that a dog was mentioned in a broadcast. A dog that was callously killed by a supposed professional military. They are not even ashamed that their own military murderously invaded an armless and innocent civilian's home on 14th September 2017 and killed a helpless security dog. I then wondered what my own dog Lucky, would have done in a situation such as that. Definitely, it would continue desperately barking to save me and perhaps die eventually, in the process. Biafrans have in their intimidating numbers, courageously left you people behind. We treasure life so dearly, human beings and domestic animals alike, while the Northern Hausa-Fulanis randomly and willfully kill people in the Islamic North. We - Biafrans in entirety, love and protect lives.

Nigerians have problem with this. This is a band of humans that have refused to grow. Senator Bukola Saraki became their hero for just evading the police and drove himself unidentified to the Senate. But quite unimaginable, an Nnamdi Kanu whose residence was destructively battered and surrounded by well kitted army battalion, backed by armored tanks and fighter jets, yet escaped even without the so-called trained military, unable to decipher how he made it alive. This rare act of intelligent brevity, is to their shame and cowardice.


The truth remains that many years of political bartering cum economic rape, have grossly destroyed the psyche of Nigerians.   This is the main reason why Nnamdi Kanu who never stole their money nor killed any soul, suddenly became their problem, a marked enemy that must be vilified and killed, while Atiku Abubakar, a Fulani Islamic fundamentalist, a scamist and a looter, is now their celebrated Savior in the waiting. Nnamdi Kanu is now their problem for telling the truth and trying to extricate them from all encompassing slavery orchestrated by the British/Fulani treachery.

I pity Nigerians honestly. Oh yes, I do. I Elochukwu Ohaji will continue to drum it up here. Both Atiku Abubakar and Muhammadu Buhari will never ever give the freedom you so desire. Just like you all unanimously brought out a fragile and endemically diseased 75 years old man and made him a god unto yourselves, in the same vein, you all will create another monster of a god who will not only flatly disappoint your expectations but will also kill most of you people.

And until the people arise from their stupor, freedom will remain elusive. But the good news is that Biafrans are on their exit route out of this cage of servitude. Oh yes, they are all gone for good.
