By Tari Nemi
First of all, let me introduce myself.
I am a Biafran. I come from the coastal
region of Biafra which some people call
Niger Delta. I am IJAW. Nigeria holds my
country Biafra right now as her colony and
people as business territory.
I am a Biafran activist. I love my Biafra. I
used to love Nigeria until I discovered it was
all a fraud to strangulate my people
economically, religiously and politically.
I discovered that the future of my people are
not guaranteed in Nigeria. I discovered that
all my land is good for in Nigeria is for
exploitation of crude oil not for
development and my people are only good
to make up the great number of Nigeria's
population index not for productive
This inspired my drive for self determination
of my people.
We are blessed with the ability to bless
others but with the oppression of the
criminal state of Nigeria my people are the
worst in the country.
They oppress us to the extent where we
have to look for any way available to survive
despite the fact that our land feeds them all.
They are ingrates I must say. Anytime we
shout foul play they are quick to tag us with
names that will give them power to kill us
and commit grievous genocide on our lands.
1. Ojukwu rose:
They tagged him REBEL
2. Ken Saro Wiwa rose:
They tagged him CRIMINAL
3. Our Youths in the coast rose:
They tagged them MILITANTS
4. Now Mazi Nnamdi KANU rose:
They tagged him and the entire Biafran race
(IPOB) as TERRORIST
It is only in Nigeria where terrorists do not
carry arms and don't kill but rather the
supposed organized government is the one
killing them brutally.
It is only in Nigeria where dreaded terror
groups are ignored and called CRIMINALS
and non violent race are termed terrorists.
It is only in Nigeria where terrorists go to
court to combat the government about the
ill treatment of their people.
It is only in Nigeria where terrorists are
granted permission to protest in front of
United Nations office and a sovereign nation
(Nigeria) is denied same.
It is only in Nigeria where the President is
the maker, interpreter and executioner of
Indeed, Nigeria is a wonder to reckon with.
NNAMDI KANU AND THE IPOB
The man Mazi Nnamdi KANU was born to
liberate his people (Biafra) from the
oppression of the foreign invaders and the
He came with a clean cut message; WE ARE
NOT NIGERIANS, GRANT US REFERENDUM TO
DETERMINE OUR DESTINY
He is a peace loving man. He provoked his
people to see clearly the pain and anguish
that they go through and the fact that they
have no future in Nigeria. We bought his
message as the message is pure and void of
the lies we have been fed with over the
years by which the geographical political
space stands as a country.
He told us "with the TRUTH I will bring down
He had no weapon and shot no bullet but
Nigeria government came after him and
After they arrested him, we shouted,
protested and campaigned for his release.
After about 2years they released him with
inhuman conditions and left the others he
was arrested with behind.
When he came out, he continued with the
duty he was born for to deliver his people
The government became angry again, came
after him (I believe to kill him), killed more
than 200 unarmed Biafran youths right in
the gate of his house. They got in and
Now, our leader is quiet. No one knows
where he is or how to find him. They deny
being with him but how come he is quiet.
The leader I know is never a quiet man. He is
always active and addressing his people,
giving instructions on what and what to do
to get Biafra restored. So if he is quiet then
the army can't be telling the truth.
Have they killed him? If they have all we
demand is bring his corpse let's bury him in
the respected way we bury our dead in
Biafra. If he is still alive please produce him
to finish what he started.
He has a court case before him, bring him
out so he can clear himself in the court. You
claim he is not with you but after you were
done with your attack in his house he is no
where to be found. So if you didn't take him
you should know where he is. Tell us where
you took him to or how he was able to
escape the brutal attack that the younger
boys at his gate could not.
Please produce him or explain to the world
how he was able to escape your mighty
armored tankers with numerous soldiers
mounted on his gate for three days before
the final mayhem on the house.
THE OTHER VOICES
Few weeks ago when Mazi Nnamdi KANU
was around and very hot about our demand
for referendum for Biafra and gaining
international attention, there were others
raising their voices also and calling for
Some also called for other republics with
Some even advised our leader to leave the
call for Biafra and call for restructuring
which our leader refused and discarded.
Many people called for whatever they
wanted to call for but after the dancers
came to kill innocents and abduct our leader
like it was a cool breeze blew on them all, all
the voices stopped immediately.
No one is calling for restructuring or
republic this or that again. Where are they
all? Where did they go to? Or were they also
captured like my leader or they were
enveloped with fear and cowardice? Were
they afraid the nozzle of the next armored
tank would face their building and their
people killed like chickens as our people
Where are the voices of division and
distraction? Where are the politicians that
always want to advise and say this one or
that one is not political correct and say how
best self determination agitation can go?
Where are they? Someone should help me
find them. I need them to start talking now
that our leader no longer talks.
I need the one Nigeria restructurers to hit
the street protesting that the government
should restructure the country and give
some of her powers to the regions.
Maybe if you are able to die for restructuring
I might give ear to your plight.
Maybe if you are able to protest in the face
of guns and bullets and you are being fired
life bullets and you continue maybe I will
abandon Biafra and join you.
If you can show me how restructuring can
be achieved with Hausa Fulani still in the
political space called Nigeria, maybe I will
Their inability to do the above is a proof to
me that Biafra is the only hope. Anything
short of Biafra is a fraud.
Many of you will tell me that we are better
together because we are in a big country.
Yes, a big country a big disgrace all over the
A big country with high statistics of poverty
A big country and a big shame.
Why should I belong to a big country that is
too big to realise my people exist or her
people are maltreated like dogs abroad and
treated like goats without the big country
responding in a small way?
I rather be in my small Biafra that will do big
I choose to be a small Biafra that will open
the eyes of Africans to take advantage of the
advancement and civilisation of the world
I choose to be in a small Biafra that shall be
big enough terminate poverty in most
African countries as we shall teach them
how to trade and give life to the citizens.
I rather be in a country called Biafra where
my IJAW shall be a nation of her own devoid
of foreign oppression and political
Biafra is my home.
If you want to give me anything, please give
me Biafra not restructuring.
