 Biafrans’ Freedom Wants Extra Concerted Effort

Proper from inception, the peoples of each Northern and Southern Sudan have been dominated individually underneath completely different colonies till 1947 when the British colonial masters merged them collectively and started ruling them as one colony. However the then Southern Sudanese have been afraid of “Arabianization and islamization” of their area by the North and so, they firmly stood their floor in opposition to being emerged with the Northern Sudanese.

Southern Sudan  was naturally endowed with mineral assets similar to Southern Nigeria whereas Northern Sudan had no pure assets as at the moment similar to Northern Nigeria too however the energy of the federal government was with them, simply similar because the cabals in Northern Nigeria. What occurred subsequent was a shock to the colonial masters as South Sudan pressed forth for his or her independence. 

They engaged Northern Sudan that had refused them exit in a horrible twelve (12) years warfare from 1955-1972 even earlier than the colonial masters may announce Sudan’s independence in 1956. After a ceasefire settlement was met in 1972, the then President of the newly unbiased nation of Sudan, Gaafar Nimeri, similar to the cabals in Northern Nigeria, began closing all of the factories and mining corporations within the mineral wealthy cum oil producing South Sudan and relocating them to the barren Northern divide that produces completely nothing. The rationale was to strangulate them economically and in any other case.

This act of the Islamic centered Northern Sudanese authorities compelled South Sudan to type a army unit often known as the “Sudanese Individuals’s Liberation Military” (SPLA) which went to warfare in 1983 for the second time of their historical past. This resulted in 2005, lasting for ten (10) good years. That’s to say, the Sudanese civil warfare lasted for 22 years in totality, making it the longest civil warfare in African historical past. It was in 2011, 6 yrs after, when the warfare really ended that South Sudan was pronounced as an unbiased nation from the Islamic Northern Sudanese authorities thereby, changing into Africa’s latest unbiased nation.

Nigeria versus Biafra problem is much like that of Sudan and South Sudan. The South is often preventing in opposition to the Northern islamization agenda. The colonial masters merged Southeastern Nigeria with the North. These are individuals of various beliefs and origins that must have lived individually. Simply similar dehumanizing expertise of South Sudan with North Sudan in opposition to their will, only for the curiosity of exploiting the individuals’s wealthy pure assets. Critically evaluating the situation, it will probably indisputably said right here that the colonial masters laid the inspiration for the issues particularly rocking black Africa.

Freedom is just not given however somewhat taken and so, what the Indigenous Individuals of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is diplomatically doing, is to create international consciousness and get Biafrans prepared for a long-lasting warfare similar to that of Northern Sudan and South Sudan. The 1967-1970 Biafra/Nigeria warfare doesn’t suffice and that’s the reason eversince then, the “Stay and let Stay” that Nigeria initiated for peace, had not labored for Biafrans. 

The Islamised Northern Nigeria had by no means ceased killing the harmless Igbos and tagging them terrorists. They’ve by no means ceased utilizing all their army would possibly and weapons in opposition to the harmless and peaceable Igbo communities. They’ve by no means relented of their drive for the islamisation of your complete geographical areas inside Nigeria. These are the the explanation why it may be stated that Biafrans haven’t finished sufficient to be freed.

When somebody is keen so that you can stick with him, he needs to be additionally wholesomely involved about your wellbeing. Within the case of Nigeria, they need Biafrans to stick with them as slaves. Not alive however lifeless.

With all of the army weapons Nigeria is stockpiling in Biafraland, threatening the individuals with a second time open genocide, quickly, there shall be an unprecedented response if care is just not taken simply in the identical method the Southern Sudanese responded to the Islamic North. If it means going by way of it for even 30 years with out a ceasefire, then let it’s. 

The individuals won’t ever retreat nor give up as a result of Biafra is their breath and till that is achieved, speaking about it won’t cease. Biafrans have seen sufficient of Nigeria and the season will quickly unfold if this establishment persists.
