Biafra: Be Consciously At Alert!
The enemies don’t sleep! The identify, Indigenous Individuals of Biafra (IPOB), actually conveys the concept the Biafran territories comprise of a variety of distinct ethnic nationalities which share a standard worth system and have interacted with one another inside their established natural borders lengthy earlier than colonialism. Therefore, it’s common to listen to IPOB members deal with themselves as ‘one household’. The ethnic nationalities agitating for the Biafran Republic embody Annang, Efik, Ejagham, Ekoi, Esan, Etsako, Ibibio, Idoma, Igala, Igbo, Igede, Igodomigodo, Ijaw, Isoko, Itsekiri, Ogoni, Oron, Owan, Urhobo, and many others, all of which fall into the Nigerian States of Abia, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Bayelsa, Benue, Cross River, Delta, Ebonyi, Edo, Enugu, Kogi, Imo and Rivers.
Following the Biafran genocide which resulted within the deaths of over 5 million civilians together with kids starved to demise, nothing in regards to the plight of Biafrans have modified. The marginalization, nepotism, extra-judicial killings, ethnic cleaning and different types of social injustice but stay state-sponsored. These are what led to the Biafran genocide and are nonetheless very a lot at play in the present day. Resistance to oppression is pure and Biafrans reserve the correct to withstand and protest tyranny.
Precisely a 12 months in the past, Nigerian youths took to the streets in protests in opposition to police brutality. Tagged #EndSARS, the protests swept via each main metropolis in Nigeria, however for some inexplicable causes, the Nigerian authorities perceived the peaceable protests to be some brazen acts of revolt that should be crushed with brutal pressure. On the evening of twentieth October 2020, males of the Nigerian military dedicated a most unsettling act of terror by opening hearth on the group of protesters occupying the Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos. The query nonetheless stays whether or not or not the Nigerian state is a canopy for another sinister agenda which the residents are usually not conscious of.
The Lekki Bloodbath is among the many acts of terror which the Nigerian armed forces have unleashed on the harmless indigenous communities. However with the bloodbath throughout that occasion, the times that adopted noticed coordinated assaults on navy checkpoints and police amenities by armed males whom the media shortly ascribed to as ‘Unknown Gunmen’. Thus far, nothing in regards to the id or the agenda of this militant group is thought, as they don’t have any political wing nor has bbeen recognized with any. Maybe they’re band of youths fed up with police and armed forces brutalities and are due to this fact, taking to the choice of violence since peaceable decision of social points have been outlawed and rendered unimaginable.
However then, it won’t be misplaced to say that the ‘Unknown Gunmen’ have been in existence because the formation of Nigeria. The award profitable musician, late Fela Anikolakpo Kuti sang about it when he listed them out of their classes as unknown troopers, unknown police, unknown civilians, unknown college students and the unknown authorities. In his music, he talked about that the common trademark of those unknown gunmen is sorrow, tears and blood and that they carried it wherever they went. They go to anybody who speaks up in opposition to the ills of the federal government and leaving such with sorrow, tears and blood. Ask Fela Anikolakpo Kuti, Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday Igboho and El-Zakzaki and many others.
It’s not unusual to see Nigerian troopers and policemen sporting masks in broad daylight and the way they blatantly spill blood with out consideration. They even boast overtly that they might killing anybody and earn promotions for the act. The individuals are presently witnessing sorrow, tears and bloodletting wherever any of the classes of those unknown gunmen seem.
Buhari who performed an energetic function within the genocide Nigeria dedicated in opposition to Biafran between 1967 and 1970, is now making an attempt to make use of the compromised media to demonize Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB for dislodging the Fulani Islamic killers within the forests of the previous Jap area. Allow us to not neglect that it’s the similar Fulani killers which have massacred and sacked entire communities in Benue State and in different components of Center Belt area.
These Fulanis whom additionally the Nigerian authorities have admitted not being indigenous in Nigeria, impose themselves on Biafran forests via Buhari authorities’s help, from which they comfortably plan and launch assaults on unsuspecting rural communities in Biafraland.
It’s worrisome that the media shies away from the reality as directed generally by the ministry of communication.
And to attain this, the media has chosen to finger IPOB for the actions of the unknown gunmen, although they agree that their id stays ‘unknown’. Now, any sane individual has to ask; because you say that the lads are unknown, why then determine them as being IPOB? The disgusting wonders of Nigeria intellectualism!
IPOB stays peaceable and unarmed in its agitation for the restoration of Biafra. It’s legally represented in additional than 88 international locations of the world. For its peaceable cconduct in rallies and protests, it has earned for itself, “probably the most peaceable mass motion in world historical past”.
IPOB won’t ever descend to involving itself with any unknown or violent group. It does have an armed wing which is the Jap Safety Community (ESN), stationed within the forests and explicitly involved with making the forests inside Biafraland, freed from the marauding Fulani terrorists masquerading as cattle herders. The ESN has been exceedingly profitable of their activity such that in our time, our folks haven’t gone the way in which of communities within the Center Belt which have been sacked and displaced by the Fulani Islamic terrorists.
