Never in Nigeria was a man like him, and today as I reflect on the Prince who held sway and made the government of Nigeria to quiver, I wish to note that the return of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be like an earthquake and hopefully Biafra in her wake will be more than ready to move.
He will come as the chosen he was and is and let it be known that the chariots of Nigerian soldiers will not withstand the fiery dart of the Holy Chukwu Okike as the said time fastly approach.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu like John the Baptist, set out on the Biafran mission on Radio Biafra London. His voice like tornado broke the walls of lies binding an illegally concocted contraption called Nigeria and brought many believing, out from their cocoon of hopelessness, helplessness and brick of groaning, and like the Hebrew midwives, he delivered Biafrans from bondage of uncertainty and unveiled their entity hence he regenerated the struggle for freedom with honesty. And many answered the clarion call wholeheartedly.
The Prince from Afaraukwu ignited a fire that burnt Nigeria with the truth, the Biafran spirit is resurrected and the March is set forth, alas many doubted and mocked that he only spoke from afar, therefore he came down after announcing on radio like the prophets of old declared the birth of Christ, he returned to Nigeria but was abducted and taken away by security forces of the Buhari-led administration on 14th October, 2015. Hence, a new era began, protests were born but the Nigerian Pharaoh sent his men to arrest, maim, kill and incarcerate unarmed protestants, so the struggle took shape and gained publicity.
Many men, women and children were killed yet the struggle continued and the mystery about the man remains unraveled. Courts and judges were changed like worn-out clothes in the bid to clampdown the lion of Biafra but all to no avail.
The more they tried, the more the struggle escalated and he stood solidly on his ground. This is the Prince chosen for Biafra’s restoration and nothing will stop her rebirth. The organization and willingness with which many gave their lives and time and all baffled those who wished they were him but little did they realized that God’s ways are not man’s, therefore, they connived and ganged up to eliminate and terminate the chosen of the Lord, they forgot to consider the cries of the dead who died while voicing “give me Biafra”. They chose to ignore their identity and fell asleep on duty as the foolish virgins, they allowed themselves to be used like Judas iscariot.
So, on the 14th of September, 2017, they came to kill and stop the voice of Biafra. Yet the struggle was neither abated nor stopped. Many are still held hostage in Nigeria prisons without any offence. Many are still being hunted down as animals and others have given way to falsehood asking, where is Nnamdi Kanu? Is he dead or alive? Others query if he was for real why did he abscond, yet the mystery of his disappearance occasioned by the use of military force by the government, remains undisclosed because for surely, heaven and earth must pass away but the word of the Lord will come to pass.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who never sold out the struggle but preached in Kuje prisons is not one to back down, he never accepted gold, silver and oil wells offered to him, neither did he back out when asked to, but took the whole of the Eastern Governors and Nigeria government to born an operation where python danced.
He is certainly not one who will betray his people and the sacred Biafra cause. He is not the one who will run without a cause, neither is he the coward who shivers for fear of intimidation or death. He made a vow not a promise of gold and silver but a vow to bring back Biafra and so shall it be. He has seemingly lost all, sacrificed all, confused many, dazed more people, yet he remains undefeated and his return like the devastating earthquake will tear Nigeria into shreds. My question today remains, who are the part of the hundred that will overcome with the Gideon of our time? I definitely am.
