“Hope For Nigeria” news report on Monday 13th January 2020 had it that some Igbo forums namely: Nzuko Umunna and Ndigbo Lagos, in collaboration with civil society organizations, held a commemorative conference to mark 15th January as a special day to remember the end of the Nigerian war tagged: “NEVER AGAIN”. It is worrisome to hear that the so-called Igbo elites in connivance with the Northern Fulani Caliphate, are shamelessly claiming that the war has ended in Nigeria, noting that Wednesday 15th January 2020, marked fifty years anniversary of the end of the Nigeria/Biafra conflict. It should be clearly stated here that this happens to be another diversionary plot targeted at the international community from getting the required information about the heinous crimes the Nigerian state committed against the Biafran people. Speeches delivered in the gathering were carefully concocted to further make it impossible for the upcoming Biafran generations to give unreserved support to the Biafra restoration struggle, aimed at freeing them from mental slavery amongst others.
Truth must certainly have to be told. The war which they claim to have ended, is yet ongoing with intense propensity. Blood of Biafrans are daily being wasted as ever. The Nigerian Fulani Islamic controlled central government has plotted this deceitful fifty years end of the war anniversary in it’s desperation and subtility to orchestrate full blown genocidal war that will possibly exterminate Biafrans in this part of the world, same way the 1967 to 1970 war that took more than five million innocent Biafrans including children, women, men and the elderly, was hatched.
If really the war has ended as claimed by the so-called Ndigbo Lagos, Nzuko Umunna amongst others who are paid loyalists of the Fulani cabals, why are the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), being killed and hunted each time they come out to exercise their rights for self-determination? This is despite the fact that such is authorized by the international community as vividly stipulated in the charter of the United Nations which Nigeria is a signatory. The Fulanis are being specially treated even with their crimes throughout Nigeria while Biafrans are treated with disdain and subjugated to slavery and death.
In the recent past, a lady was criminally assaulted by the officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), an arm of the Nigerian police force for grossly inconsequential matter and this trail of injustice has become an institutionalized norm against the innocent on successive basis. The masses under the Islamic government of a tyrant like Muhammadu Buhari, has opened up avenues for wars, threats and violence targeted against the helpless since 2015. Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) which is the umbrella body of Fulani killer herdsmen, have equally raped mothers, killed fathers and innocent children without hindrances. And instead of outrightly condemning the acts and arresting the perpetrators for prosecution, the Nigerian government keep rewarding them monetarily for the forceful acquisition of lands across Biafraland for RUGA. This is part of their agenda aimed at exterminating the indigenous land owners as well as annexing their lands. This was their mission in Biafraland at the beginning of the war in 1967 but woefully failed even till 1970.
The so-called Igbo leaders who selfishly converged to make claim of the end of the war through the 15th January anniversary as marked, should fully give answers to the following questions:
* Has the war really ended when armed security forces relentlessly and recklessly kill innocent civilians far more than Islamic terrorists?
* How did the war end when the Nigerian government directed the Army, Police, Airforce amongst others, to murderously invade the country home of the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu with the primary purpose of killing him?
* How has the war ended when more than twenty eight promising, unarmed young IPOB activists were gruesomely killed by the Nigerian soldiers at the home of the IPOB leader at Afara-ukwu, Ibeku in Umuahia, Abia State?
* How has the war ended when the Nigerian police force and soldiers raided the country home of Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor who is the legal counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB, with the command to summarily get him out of the way? Why were his family houses razed down, including that of his neighbors at his Oraifite home in Anambra State?
If the above questions can unbiasedly be addressed, it will then become clear that the war against Biafrans has only been aggravated in accordance with the collective agenda of the Fulanis. And beyond Biafraland, thousands of Christians have been murdered in Jos, Southern Kaduna, Benue, Kogi and other parts of the western region.
If therefore the war must end, the only sure remedy remains the outright disintegration of Nigeria. Nigerians should stop deceiving themselves and it is quite unfortunate that Nzuko Umunna, Ndigbo Lagos and elsewhere, totally fail to understand that they do not in anyway, represent the interest of millions of Biafrans. It should be emphatically stated here therefore, that the 15th January Anniversary is just another scam. To fully understand the level of marginalization of Biafrans in the Nigerian contraption, just move round the streets of major streets of towns and cities in Nigeria and state your findings.
