I, Apostle Ogbodo Ogochukwu Timothy on behalf
of the entire Biafran population resident in Sierra
Leone, hereby write to very exceptionally
congratulate the incumbent Sierra Leonian
President, Retired Brigadier General Julius Maada
Bio of the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) and
his newly inaugurated government on their victory
at the polls. They clinched their Presidential
victory both on the 7th of March 2018 and from
the subsequent runoff election that was
conducted on Saturday 31st March 2018, over
their closest rivalries in the APC. It was
tremendously greeted with joy all over the country
as Sierra Leonians now have a new government
of their choice, amidst fear and uncertainty.
The family members of the Indigenous People of
Biafra (IPOB) resident in Sierra Leone, are using
this medium, to appreciate the law abiding
citizens of this West African nation, on their
courage and for trooping out enmass to
wholeheartedly, exercise their franchise. And to
the Presidential candidate of the APC, Dr. Samura
Kamara, we also very warmly appreciate, for
maturedly and democratically, accepting the will
of the people in defeat, throughout the entire
electioneering process.
Your Excellency Sir, Retired Brigadier General
Maada Bio, we wish to at this juncture, formally
bring to your notice by way of introduction, that
we are Biafrans living in Sierra Leone. We are an
Indigenous Ethnic Nationality, lumped together
with other divergent ethnic groups with sharply
opposing value systems, into a contraption called
Nigeria through British colonisation, orchestrated
by Fredrick Lugard in 1914. According to ancient
and proven historical records, Igbo Biafrans are
Israeli descendants among the biblical migrants
from the nation of Israel. As the Israelites
sojourned into Egypt, some of them moved down
to a section of Africa where prospectively settled
to escape the Israeli/Egyptian war in 18 BC. That
area was later christened Biafra by this
indigenous people group through consent and
choice. Today that nation (Biafra) contrapted into
Nigeria is being known and referred to, as Eastern
Nigeria.
We find ourselves today in Sierra Leone not
principally by choice, but by necessity occasioned
by the desire to survive gruesome persecutions
and seek greener pastures for sustainability. We
are also seeking our redemption as a people
amongst free peoples of the world and that is

why we here in this country, like our brothers and
sisters scattered variously all over the world, are
resolutely campaigning for the unfettered and
total freedom/restoration of the nation of Biafra
from the enslavement of Nigeria. The Indigenous
People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, is ably led by
Mr. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and effectively being
deputised by Mr. Uche Mefor.
Biafrans love Sierra Leone as a nation and their
Sierra Leonian brothers and sisters as fellow
human beings. We have sworn to abide by the
laws of the land, to dutifully respect the human
rights of all citizens. We are fully aware that out
of the four Kirios (ethnicities/tribes) that made up
the nation of Sierra Leone, that Foura Kirios
emigrated from Nigeria and Biafra during the era
of slave trade. This nation of Sierra Leone to
Biafrans, is also ours besides our ancestral home.
We feel safe and secured here.
Your Excellency Sir, as the duly elected
democratic President of Sierra Leone today as
ordained by the Almighty God, for the purpose of
delivering His own people out of bondage and
captivity like the biblical Moses for the nation of
Israel out of Egypt, we the IPOB family worldwide
and here in Sierra Leone particularly, implore you
to be used likewise. The protection of human
lives and dignity are of paramount importance
and we hereby plead that you fight with your
authority as the number one citizen and father of
all, to preserve these values. And just like the
dexterity employed by the government of your
predecessor, Sir Ernest Bai Koroma on security
matters, be encouraged to maintain and even
improve on the status quo. As the Commander-
in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Republic of
Sierra Leone, the protection of lives and
properties of both the foreigners and bonafide
Sierra Leonians are squarely placed in your
hands. Their hope for survival and aspirations
should equally be accorded due priority. Your
ascension to power has elucidated on the streets
of Sierra Leone, tremendous celebrations by the
children, youths and the elderly, emphatically
giving approval that your pick as their electoral
choice as officially declared by the National
Electoral Commission (NEC) was not a mistake.
It will be a colossal disappointment therefore, if
at the end of your tenure, these people have
nothing to show for their confidence.
The expectations of the Indigenous People of
Biafra (IPOB) worldwide through your excellency
Sir, is that Sierra Leone as a country will assume
a more definitive role in valuable and viable
service delivery to the citizenry, in the comity of
Nations especially here in the African continent.
We crave to see a well developed nation of Sierra
Leone, beyond her present status in all strata.
The concerns of the innocent Sierra Leonian poor
masses should be pivotal as you settle down for
governance. The people of Sierra Leone who
orchestrated your victory at the polls even at the
risk of their lives, should be made to enjoy the
dividends of democracy under your watch.
As Biafrans resident here in the country, we
promise to make our contributions count in your
tenure. We are potentially gifted in industrial and
domestic affairs that if well harnessed, can
enhance nation building and development.
Automobile spare parts industries in Sierra Leone
of today, are owned by Igbo Biafrans. We import,
sell and service different brands of auto parts
from trusted countries of the world, with quality.
It is our plan to see that by the year 2030, Sierra
Leone would have become a major economic/
commercial hub not only within the West African
sub-region but the entire Africa and the world at
large. And by the time Biafra fully regains her
sovereignty as a nation which of course is
imminent, establishing a bilateral relationship
between the two sister nations would dedound to
building on the already existing robust synergy
between their citizens.
