Unknown Gunmen: A Direct Consequence Of Nigeria Army And Police Brutality




Madness, they say has no caution!
That is why the persistent brutal actions of the Nigerian army, police and other security agencies on innocent indigenous citizens can at best be described as madness, seeing they have unabated maintained it without any regard for caution.
They have always been at the necks of law abiding citizens, provoked or unprovoked, irrespective of he fact that  true indigenous citizens have all been very patriotic, loyal and submissive to the rule of law and the law enforcement agencies of the country for many decades now, as anyone would be expected to do in a sane society. 

Security and law enforcement agencies should be a driving force of loyalty, cohesion, peace, unity and patriotism in any sovereign nation of the world, with the sole aim of enforcing and maintaining law and order, while protecting the lives of the citizens. The army protects the citizens and the country against external invasions and are only called upon in internal issues, if the police can no longer handle any situation like a national emergency. While the police is to enforce and maintain peace, law and order within the country.

The Nigeria situation is quite an opposite, awkward and skewed one with the template not existing anywhere in the world. In Nigeria, the army, the police and other security agencies have been torns in the flesh of the citizens since the creation of the contraption, Nigeria. They kill, extort, intimidate and brutalise the armless indigenous citizens. But on the other hand,  protect and provide cover to armed Fulani Janjaweed militias that are pillaging, invading, raping, killing and taking over peoples’ ancestral homes.
Hardly would any day pass by without reports of army or police brutality all these years. Just this week,  the Nigerian army invaded a relatively peaceful community in Benue state and leaving not less than 30 people dead while burning down the entire village.

The killings by Nigeria armed forces have been on the increase with over ten percent per anum. The major increase is seen within the south-east, south-south, and south-west regions of the country, especially towards peaceful protesters and agitators. This led to Nkpor massacre, ABA massacre, Enugu massacre, and forcing the youths to drink and sleep in muddy water along Port Harcourt/ Enugu expressway which lead to the death of many of them in 2017. This brutality was extended to all the fresh and wealthy looking young men of the southern part of the country in the name of fighting internet fraud and cyber crimes.

END SARS protest of October 2020 was a direct response of the youths to the brutality and killings from the security agencies.  At the protest, the president, lawmakers and the Nigerian judiciary connived and ordered the military and the police to shoot the protesters leading to the death of over 200 youths and adoption of many by the security agencies in both the Lekki and Obigbo massacre.

In the pain of all these, the poor masses raised a loud cry to the Almighty God for revenge of the oppressors. And now, the emergence of the unknown gunmen seemingly appears to be an answer to that cry of the Nigerian masses, especially from the south-east.
This can be vividly seen in the mood of the citizens each time there is a report of attack on the security agents by these men of the underworld. 

Since the emergence of the unknown gun, there has been a flip of the coin from death of the citizens at the hands of the security agencies to their own death all around the country. The killing of the security agents has brought calmness, sanity and gladness back to the society and brutality by the security agencies has been on the decline and they (security agencies) have been crying for help which has since led to the resignation of many. 

Each time I think of the unknown gun men, I said to myself, nemesis is catching up with the security agents just as the Holy scriptures said in Matthew: 26:52. “...for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword".

Never again will innocent citizens be carelessly slaughtered anymore without repercussions.

Religious Profiling: Nigerian Army Killed 350 Christian Civilians In 10 Months And In Peacetime

 Religious Profiling: Nigerian Army Killed 350 Christian Civilians In 10 Months And In Peacetime



Intersociety, Onitsha, Eastern Nigeria

Massacring On The Ground Of Religion


The International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) is deeply pained and saddened by indiscriminate massacring of defenseless civilians of Christian Faith by Nigerian Army. This, the Army now does with reckless abandon and uttermost impunity; to the extent that in the past ten months surveyed, or from July 2020 to first week of April 2021, 350 defenseless Christian civilians, if not more, have been massacred by the Army in its peacetime internal security operations (non war situations). The most disheartening of it all is that the defenseless victims, slain on the grounds of their religion and ethnicity, were massacred by soldiers in revenge for loss of their colleagues. That is to say that ‘when criminal citizens attack and kill soldiers, the Army turns around and massacres defenseless civilians, especially Christian civilians in revenge and labels the slain victims as “hoodlums”.


 To Army, It Is A ‘Taboo’ For Soldiers To Die But Customary To Massacre Civilians: It further saddens our heart that security and safety of the defenseless civilian citizens of Nigeria have now been turned upside down and privatized by the country’s security forces particularly the Nigerian Army; whereby ‘it is now a taboo for soldiers or other security personnel to die in the line of their duties, but customary for civilians to be massacred’. That is to say that death of a soldier in nowadays Nigeria instantly attracts genocidal reprisal against defenseless civilians particularly Christians. In Nigeria of today, too, it is no longer: “it is better to lose five security personnel to save an endangered innocent soul than to save the security personnel and allow defenseless soul to be killed”. Despite being paid and catered for on hourly and daily basis by Nigerians and their commonwealth to defend and protect defenseless citizens of the country and their properties, the reverse is now the case.


 Religious Profiling And Hate Soldiering Are On Rampage: As part of its hate soldiering and religious profiling, the Army, from all indications, is deriving sadistic joy in turning its weapons of death against defenseless Christian civilians at slightest or no provocation but rescinding same or looking blindly the other side when attacked by Muslims in Muslim areas. Following our recent investigative findings, it was found that the Army lost at least 300 soldiers in 2020 and most of them were killed in the Muslim held Northeast and Northwest by Muslim insurgency groups and yet, heaven did not fall. The Army also does little or nothing when Muslim insurgency group like jihadist Fulani Herdsmen and jihadist Fulani “Bandits” attack and slaughter defenseless citizens especially Christians. In the three months and ten days of this 2021, according to the Nigerian Security Weekly Tracker reports of the Council on Foreign Relations owned by John Campbell, a former US Ambassador to Nigeria, Nigerian Army has lost a total of 70 soldiers, with 58 lost in Borno State alone, Nasarawa nine, Gusau three and so on (compared to about 25 in Benue, SS and SE); yet the attackers are still on the prowl and the communities where the attacks took place have not been wiped out or razed. Such Muslim held communities including Damboa, Dikwa, Chibok, Maiduguri, Nasarawa, Gusau, Kukawa, Marte, Koya and Guzamala are till date inhabited and their houses, mosques and emir palaces intact.


 But contrary was recently the case in Akwa Ibom and Benue States. For losing 11 soldiers in Benue State, 100 defenseless Christian civilians or more were massacred and dozens gone missing and their dwelling houses and properties including the Palace of the respected Traditional Ruler of Agidi (Tyoor Unaha Koko) razed or set on fire. In Akwa Ibom State (Essien-Udim LGA), for losing some police officers and others to criminal citizens, defenseless Christian civilians numbering 30 or more were slaughtered by soldiers and their homes and properties razed or burnt. Survivors were forced to flee and take refuge in a Catholic Church. According to facts emerging from Shangev-Tiev, Konshisha Local Government Area of Benue, apart from massacring 100 or more, the Nigerian Army also ‘bombed, razed and demolished farms, schools, hospitals and residences’ belonging to over 15 rural Christian Communities of Bonta, Tse-Jembe, Tse-Anyom, Gbinde, Mbaakpur, Aku, Agidi, Gungul, Adoka, Guleya, Awajir, Shiliki, Achono and Ulam Communities” and forced thousands to flee their homes till date.


The Benue Army massacre, the latest in its litany of civilian massacres since August 2015, truly and fully bears color of religious and ethnic profiling and hate soldiering; otherwise how could soldiers, sent to man and patrol boundary demarcation areas between the people of Shangev-Tiev in Konshisha Local Government and the ancestral Igede Igbo Community in Okpute located in Oju Local Government turn around and levy unprovoked massacre on same citizens they were sent to protect? Yet the same soldiers had severally turned and are still turning blind eyes against genocidal Fulani Herdsmen who have massacred over 400 Benue Christians since Jan 2020 and recently attempted to assassinate the Christian sitting Governor of the State. This is to the extent that till date, no single jihadist attacker has been apprehended by the Army even when the group that did the attack came out and claimed responsibility.

Key Army Commanders In Nine Checked Christian Held States Are All Muslims


Intersociety has also investigated and found that one of the major triggers of Army targeted massacre of defenseless Christian civilian population at slightest or no provocation in Nigeria especially in the Christian held part is domination and control of key Army commands in the areas by senior officers of Fulani-Hausa Muslim extraction. On the hand, it is also our finding that Christian Army commanders in Muslim held Northern part of the country are minutely insignificant in umber and where they are posted, they tightly work under what appears to be “caliphate instructions”. The takeover and control of key Army formations in Christian held part of the country by these Muslim officers is found to be a deliberate policy of the present Government of Nigeria and has been majorly responsible for disproportionate security and safety of the affected Christian civilian population and their properties; thereby putting them not only in danger but also exposing them to attacks by Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen, jihadist Fulani “Bandits” and others.


 Names Of The Muslim Army Commanders: In the nine Christian held States of Benue, Edo, Delta, Anambra, Imo, Rivers, Abia, Rivers and Akwa Ibom, it was found that all their key Army commanders are Fulani-Hausa Muslim officers and one Southwest Muslim. In Benue State, Commander of Operation Whirl Stroke is Major Gen Yekini Adeyemi (Southwest Muslim), Commander of 401 Special Forces Brigade, Makurdi is Brigadier Gen Samai’la Mohammed Uba (Fulani-Hausa Muslim) and Commanding Officer of 72 Special Forces Battalion, Makurdi (as at Jan 2021) is Lt Col A.D. Alhassan (Fulani-Hausa Muslim). In Edo State, Brigade Commander of 4 Brigade, Benin is Brigadier Gen MA Sadiq (Fulani-Hausa Muslim), in Delta State, Brigade Commander of 63 Brigade; Asaba is Brigadier Gen A Idris (Fulani-Hausa Muslim). In Anambra State, Cantonment Commandant of the 302 Artillery Regiment, Onitsha is Col  Abdulsalam Abubakar Sambo (Fulani-Hausa Muslim), in Imo State, Brigade Commander of 34 Brigade, Obinze is Brigadier Gen Ibrahim Tukura (Fulani-Hausa Muslim), in Abia State, Brigade Commander of 14 Brigade, Ohafia is Brig Gen M. Ibrahim (Fulani-Hausa Muslim), in Akwa Ibom State, Brigade Commander of 2 Brigade, Uyo is Brigadier Gen Faruk Mijinyawa (Fulani-Hausa Muslim) and in Rivers State, GOC, 6 Division, Port Harcourt is Major Gen Sambo G Mohammed (Fulani-Hausa Muslim). These are just to mention but a few.


 How 350 Christian Civilians Were Massacred By Army In 10 Months


In Takum Taraba, 30 unarmed Christian civilians were killed by soldiers on 29th/30th June 2020 and at Emene in Enugu, at least 30 Christian civilians were killed. On 20th Oct 2020, at least 20 mostly Christians were killed at Lekki in Lagos State and across the Southeast during EndSARS protests in the same Oct 2020, at least 30 defenseless Christian civilians were killed by soldiers in Enugu, Abia, Anambra, Imo and Ebonyi. Between 21st Oct and mid Nov 2020, Army massacred at least 102 Christian civilians in Obigbo and environs in Rivers State. Between 14th and 22nd Jan 2021, Army killed at least ten Christian civilians including six farmers in Orlu, Imo State. On 5th April 2020, at least 30 Christian civilians were killed by soldiers in Essien-Udim, Akwa Ibom State and on 6th to 7th April 2021, 100 Christian civilians or more were massacred by soldiers in Shangev-Tiev, Konshisha Local Government Area located in Benue State and dozens of others are still missing. These are just to cite but a few.

The Call By Imo State Governor For The Nigerian Army/Police To Start Killing IPOB Members Is A Prove That Ndị Igbo Have No Leaders

 The Call By Imo State Governor For The Nigerian Army/Police To Start Killing IPOB Members Is A Prove That Ndị Igbo Have No Leaders 


Punch News online on 6th April, 2021 have quoted Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma as saying the following words  “If you can’t attack them, you can at least use your rifles to defend yourselves. Any attack on police formation is an insult to us as a government. It is also an attack on the integrity of the government. We must take charge, take control and ensure discipline."

Unfortunately, the Governor was referring to IPOB members. He is practically calling on the military to start killing innocent youths in Imo state.

It is very disheartening and quite unfortunate that such a call could come from someone that calls himself a governor or first citizen of the state. Unbelievable!  It is very much clear that by the time the governor was calling on Nigeria security forces to go after IPOB members, no investigation has been carried out by the police. The governor simply woke up to accuse his own people of an attack he doesn't know who committed.

Governors in South East have always shown that they are anti people. They are always ready to go against their own people, while they defend outsiders. The Gov Hope Uzodimma I know will never accuse the Fulani herdsmen of any attack, not to talk of asking the police or military to go after Fulani herdsmen even though they kill and maim indigens with reckless abandon.

However, Fulani herdsmen have been killing people, taking over villages and renaming them, yet no one is arresting them. No single Fulani man is in jail or undergoing trail, but these Igbo governors will always betray their own people and ask soldiers to kill them without any formal investigations.

I have said it time without number that whatever is happening in Igbo land should be blamed on those claiming to be leaders in Igbo land. It is their failure that brought us all to this stage. You can't expect the people to remain calm with leaders that protect marauders and killers instead of their own innocent people. They brag about protecting and defending the Fulani herdsmen, yet the herdsmen kill their people at will. One even bragged of having Miyetti Allah representatives in his government.

The question is, how is it that the Military and Police will absolve their own people over crimes committed in the North, while Igbo leaders will force crime on their own youths. Boko Haram said they brought down Nigerian Air force jet, but Nigeria military said it is a lie, they did not do it. Yet, Gov Hope Uzodimma was too fast, without investigation to accuse his own people of attack. To the extent that he had to tell Nigeria military and police to attack IPOB members.

Don't forget that we all are IPOB members. With the fact that we all are indigenous people of Biafra, then we all are IPOB. So who and who is Gov Hope Uzodimma asking the police to go after? Definitely all of us.

I put it to you that Gov Hope Uzodimma have declared war against us all. He has encouraged the blood thirsty Nigeria military to commit genocide on all us.

Nigeria Military Bombing & Secretly Killing Biafrans In Akwa Ibom And Benue States And Labeling Them Unknown Gunmen - IPOB

 Nigeria Military Bombing & Secretly Killing Biafrans In Akwa Ibom And Benue States And Labeling Them Unknown Gunmen - IPOB

IPOB PRESS RELEASE 

9th April,2021



We, the Indigenous People of Biafra of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to bring to the attention of the world how Nigeria government and her security operatives are massacring innocent Biafrans in Essien Udim Local Government Area in Akwa Ibom State. The Nigerian military has been killing these innocent and hapless citizens claiming they are the phenomenal Unknown Gunmen behind the spate of attacks against security formations in the region.


The Nigeria military has been using their aircraft leased from Pakistan and with the support of United Kingdom mission to Nigeria, to bomb the people of Essien in Akwa Ibom as well as lower Benue,  claiming they are fighting Unknown Gunmen purportedly hiding in the area. This has again exposed the hypocrisy of the Fulani controlled Nigeria military and their backers within the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London. 

Catriona Laing the UK High Commissioner in Abuja who incidentally is the neo-colonial ruler of Nigeria cannot advice her Fulani puppets to use Nigeria Airforce jets against terrorists and bandits daily slaughtering Nigerian soldiers in Fulani controlled Northern Nigeria but she is busy encouraging the genocidal slaughter of innocent villagers in Biafran territories under the guise of searching for Unknown Gunmen.

In February, it was Orlu in Imo State where civilians were massacred using the same aircrafts supplied by western allies to aid the fight against Boko Haram and other forms of Fulani terrorism. Now it's Essien Udim in Akwa Ibom. But an Islamic cleric has been dinning and wining with terrorists, taking pictures with them, yet the double-faced Nigeria military and Catriona Laing our colonial mistress cannot use the same aircraft to trace and bomb the location of these Fulani murderers. 

How can a responsible military use helicopter gunboats and military jets against ordinary citizens? Boko Haram, Miyetti Allah and other Fulani terrorist groups have been killing soldiers and police in the North East and North West without soldiers using deadly force on nearest civilian settlements or using military jets to terrorize innocent citizens. 

The indigenous people of Essien Udim LGA in Akwa Ibom Biafraland, must remain strong in this collective quest for freedom. What the military is doing is a pathetic attempt to intimidate them to submission. They must remain resolute.

The actions of the Fulani Janjaweed presidency in the bombing of civilian villages in Akwa Ibom and Benue State is clear indication that these territories are indisputably Biafra, and the thirst for freedom cannot be easily extinguished by earial bombardment. 

Constant attacks on innocent people will spell doom for Nigeria soon. We are not going back, not one inch, until Biafra is fully restored. All those behind these genocidal attacks against innocent Biafrans know that vengeance is coming. They will all pay, individually and collectively, for their atrocities against civilians sooner rather than later.


COMRADE EMMA POWERFUL MEDIA AND PUBLICITY SECRETARY FOR IPOB

EXCLUSIVE: Nigerian Military Invade Benue Community, Kill Over 30 Villagers, Set Ablaze Monarch Palace, 200 Houses

 EXCLUSIVE: Nigerian Military Invade Benue Community, Kill Over 30 Villagers, Set Ablaze Monarch Palace, 200 Houses



At least 50 unarmed civilians have been allegedly killed by military men in Shangev-Tiev, Konshisha Local Government Area of Benue State following reports that two soldiers were missing in the community, multiple sources told SaharaReporters on Thursday.

SaharaReporters gathered that the soldiers went missing during a routine patrol in the community days after a communal crisis between towns in Konshisha and Oju LGAs.

According to reports, three soldiers were initially missing but one of them was later found.

It was learnt that troops of the Operation Whirl-Stroke (OPWS) on Wednesday and Thursday morning invaded the community.


The operation, which involved deployment of military helicopters using missile launchers, left scores of unarmed civilians dead and property said to worth billions of naira destroyed.




About 200 houses including the palace of Tyoor Unaha Kôkô in Agidi and several cars in village, which is now deserted were set ablaze by the soldiers.


Narrating the dastard act to SaharaReporters, a youth leader said, “We have lost over 50 unarmed civilians, more than five of my family members have been killed by the Nigerian Army. There are no bandits in Shangev-Tiev, a military General in Makurdi is using the Army to support his tribe in an age-long war over boundary demarcation.


“For over 3 days now, unarmed civilians have come under Nigeria military attack non-stop. Fulanis controlling the Armed Forces of Nigeria are assisting their numerous footsoldiers mobilised by Miyetti Allah in terrorising the civilians.



“They keep killing and destroying properties. How can you use fighter jet on harmless and armless citizens while negotiating ransom with bandit and terrorists?


“As we talk now, most residents have deserted their homes and are taking refuge at Tse- Agbaragba.”


Another resident asked the government to redeploy the soldiers ravaging the community to the various highways where the Boko Haram and herdsmen are presently terrorising and killing Nigerians.


He said, “Its quite sad amidst insecurity in other parts of Benue, Konshisha will be targeted by security personnels. My village has been reduced to ashes for no reason. This is not a Boko Haram. There is massive destruction and killing spree going on. The aged, women and children are not left out, among those killed and displaced. What human sense would warrant such attack and destruction?


“For days now, our people have been under flames, displaced and are massacred.“


Another resident said, “My grandfather's house is in ruins, I hear. 2001, the Army burnt my fathers village and murdered my people. 20 years later, the Army is burning down my mothers home. 20 years after Zaki Biam, the Army has returned to Benue in the same fashion. This is not the way to go.”



Meanwhile, Governor Samuel Ortom has pledged to return peace to Konshisha and Oju while briefing journalists after an expanded Security Council Meeting with stakeholders from the two local government areas.


Ortom, who reiterated the need for Benue people to support security agents deployed to end crisis in their areas, admonished the people against attacks on security agents, which would make the situation extremely difficult to contain.


He explained that as part of measures to nip the land dispute between Konshisha and Oju in the bud, it was agreed that the boundary be demarcated and a day was fixed for the exercise.


According to the governor, a few days to the agreed date, crisis erupted again and security agents were deployed to control its escalation when the troops sent to Konshisha came under attack with two military personnel still missing.


Ortom condemned the practice of some communities engaging militia to fight their neighbours. He, however, vowed that such merchants of violence would be made to face the consequences of their actions.

Exposition Of The Incompetence In Nigerian Security Intelligence.



Like an African proverb says; "when the gods wants to kill a man, they will first make him mad''.
One would want to ask if the gods have made the Nigerian intelligence agencies mad, probably to fully expose the height of their stupidity.
Where has intelligence gone to, in their operations?
These are questions begging for answers around the modal with which the Nigerian security agencies discharge their duties. 

The event of Monday 5th of April 2021 which saw the attack on the Nigerian correctional center and the state Police Headquarters both in Imo state by some unknown gunmen has shone so great a light on the low intelligence level of the Nigerian security forces. It goes further to prove to the world how intellectually poor the security operatives in Nigeria are.

In the light of the said event, actions of the security forces especially the police showed serious signs of mental  derailment and short-sightedness. How could a crime of such magnitude happen under their nose without an inch of confrontation from the security agents?

At a time when all and sundry were still in awe at how porous and incoherent the Nigerian security architecture is, the then so called inspector general of police,  Adamu Mohammed made the assertion that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security Network (ESN) were responsible for the attack, and this was in barely 2 hours after the incident.

Within such short timeframe, did it mean he had conducted investigations and came to a cognitive conclusion about who carried out the attack? I think such Intelligence can only come from the moon or as seen in those super Sci-fi movies.

This unguarded utterance has since stirred so much dust among the people with common sense to the extent that the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and its leadership, which has long shared a divergent view to that of IPOB clearly and unequivocally stated that the statement was false and unacceptable. And it is doubtlessly and very glaringly so. The IG as well publicly exposed the plan of action of the Nigeria security forces on the attack, a position which ought to have been kept top secret until it is implemented. It is only a spoon fed child that can exhibit such level of stupidity. 

Roughly about 4 hours after the IG made the statement, Miyetti Allah, a cattle breeding association characterised with raping, killing, maiming and forcefully occupying indigenous territories came out to claim responsibility for the attack, but the IG was quick to absorb the pressure off the group. This points to the fact that the whole scenario could as well be a set up against IPOB and its leadership to give it a bad name in order to justify the massacring of her members.

On the same day of IG's unguarded utterances, the president of Nigeria sacked him off the position of the inspector general of police because he(the president) has seen in him, a man who is beyond stupid and has since appointed his successor.

It is very disturbing that a national intelligent sector that is supposed to be armed with intelligence and seek to be proactive in crime detection and prevention has always been caught unawares and in deep slumber when criminal attacks are being perpetrated, is so wanting in their job.
And in order to cover their shame, they lay hands on the innocent and tag them criminals. This must not continue!

Nigerians should understand now that it is solely everyone's individual duty to protect oneself and family. Like one of the Nigeria retired generals have recently said, if we trust the current weak and uninformed national security structure for our safety, we will all definitely die.

Thankfully, the governor of the very state where the attacks took place, Governor Uzodimma has come out to exonorate IPOB and ESN; stating that they have no hands in the attacks.

Perhaps the gods just wanted to make a public caricature of the disjointed security structure of Nigeria.

Kanu Displeased With UK/US Involvement In Nigeria Murderous Fulani Regime




Considering the situation of things at this stage of the fight for Biafra restoration, one is forced to reflect on the famous words of the great human right activist, late Martin Luther King Junior, on the 16th of April, 1963. The need to make some emphasis on this statement has made it binding on the informed to elucidate explicitly, the true intentions and sincere motives of the late icon. Luther said on that date that: “Injustice Anywhere Is A Threat To Justice Everywhere”.

Presumably, it is a thought on this same lane that may have compelled the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) and Director of Radio Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to recently tweet thus: "The most odious of all oppressions are those which mask as justice"....Robert H. Jackson. Two most advanced nations in the world are propping a murderous Fulani Islamic regime of Terror, Tyranny & Oppression in Nigeria. And worst of it all is that both nations have women reprentatives in Nigeria. Shame! @UKinNigeria @USinNigeria"

And according to Timothy Nwokorie also, injustice negates justice.
Human actions that abuse the privileges of others and care less about their dignity and emotions can be termed injustice. This concept also is not only limited to humans and animals that are unduely killed, molested or whose lives and existence are not considered precious but can also be said to be victims of injustice. Different societies have varying ideologies about justice and injustice. Cases that are considered just in one society may be unjust in another society but there are cases that are common to man and are generally seen as unacceptable by every average person. Beyond this, it is most at times sanctioned by a court of law as an act of injustice. This cuts across verbal abuses, emotional distress, physical assault, forceful dispossession, human right abuses, racism, discrimination, gender inequality, starvation, politics of self-interest, ethnic polarization, religious prejudice, etcetera.

But it is with great displeasure, dismay and disappointment to see these great nations, the United States of America and United Kingdom, support the murderous Fulani Islamic regime of terror, tyranny, oppression, devastation and depopulation of the indigenous peoples in Nigeria.
Seeing how these great nations that have always fought and worked for the welfare and well-being of their own people would choose to work against the wellness of other countries, is to say the least, very disheartening.
United Kingdom has been working tooth and nail to be out of the European Union through referendum, but has chosen to suppress Biafrans into remaining slaves and sheeps for slaughter in Nigeria. Why would they not know that what is good for UK citizens are also good for Biafrans citizens?
And the United States of America that is supposed to stand against injustice anywhere as the world police, has also chosen to be an accomplice in the injustice being meted against the indigenous ethnic nations entrapped in Nigeria. But one thing is certain, the course for the restoration of the sovereign nation of Biafra is a divine project which can never ever be abandoned. Biafrans have come a long way with this divine mandate and not even all the forces of the world put together, can stop us.
