It all started some years back when we told "them" and humanity that we have come to take back what rightfully belongs to us – Our stolen identity, and lost nation - BIAFRA.

We assured them that the restoration of the Sovereign State of Biafra that we are demanding is our dream, our vision, our calling, our aim and in fact the only reason our parents gave birth to us. We informed them beforehand that we do not desire riches, wealth or even the so-called good life.

We made it known to them that the coming of Biafra means so much more to us than any good thing that can ever be acquired in life.

But in their usual characteristics, they laughed at us, mocked us, scorned us, called us small boys and little girls, and tagged us Facebook freedom fighters, miscreants, jobless youths, and the impossible dreamers. They even claimed that we can never leave our shops and businesses to fight for freedom that it is just not in our genes and characters.

They counseled us to forget about asking for Biafra. They called us "fools" who are attempting what their parents could not do. They reminded us of how our fathers attempted but failed to get Biafra in the past. They even promised us that what killed our fathers will kill us. They equally reminded us of the millions of our kinsmen they killed in the late 1960s because of this same Biafra.

They promised that history will repeat itself if we do not stop. They asked us to rather go back to our vomits by working for the progress of same cursed entity called Nigeria that had expired and we have rejected. But off course, we said an emphatic "NO" and NEVER to such.

And when we told them that we will "destroy" that evil contraption, Nigeria that is holding our nation Biafra from being restored if they refused to let us go, they claimed we were building weapons for that purpose. How shameless! Who in his right senses needs weapons to destroy a contraption built on lies and falsehood? Of course, all that is needed is to unearth the foundation of the TRUTH and it will collapse.

While we preached peace and nonviolence as our modus operandi, they preached violence, issuing threats of their intentions to revisit the genocide and pogrom of the past on us. To them, asking peacefully and none violently demanding for Biafra’s restoration means a repeat of the CIVIL WAR.

Alas! then we drew their attention that it’s same right to self-determination that their President advocated before the UN for the Islamic territories of Palestine and Western Sahara which they hailed as being very ‘’Patriotic’’ that we are demanding. But they claimed that our own demand is "secession" and must not be allowed.

Sensing that we are very determined to truly destroy Nigeria's foundation with the TRUTH, they activated the panic mood. And typical of discussions and decisions made in panic, they simply committed several blunders that we just walked into to take advantage of and prove our resolve.

Rather than tell the world that we were truly hitting them hard and exposing their lies for the world to laugh at their folly, they cooked up a ludicrous statement "they are preaching hate’’.

Well! What do you expect from black men from Africa? Of course, to them, "truth is a felony in their empire of lies.’’ They then had news editors, publishers, TV and Radio station owners and officials’ palms greased to stop any reportage of our activities.

Of course, that is brown envelope Journalism in Nigeria for you. It’s same with the money-for-hand-and –back –for-ground-profession. It’s about he who pays the piper determining its drum beats.

They simply wanted a total blackout of media reportage of the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). They wanted and aimed to permanently cover the truth thus leaving the people in ignorance so that the status quo can be maintained. But they didn't reckon with the potency of Radio Biafra.

Unfortunately for them, the more they attempted to cover the truth the more like the crème la crème principle it kept rising to the top. And when they realized the foolishness in attempting to cover the truth as preached by the son of Chukwu Okike Abiama, Nnamdi Kanu who leads the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and directs Radio Biafra/TV, they asked the people to stop listening to the gospel by ignoring its message of redemption.

They used the Director, Public Affairs of NBC, Alhaji Awwalu Salih to issue the order. In a statement, he said "ignore the inflammatory content of the broadcast by Radio Biafra and continue to work toward a strong, united and prosperous nation.  We are aware of a pirate radio station transmitting seditious and divisive messages.’’  
By the way, can the truth be ignored? Off course, ‘’NO’’. Do I need to remind you that even the President of the country, African Hitler Muhammadu Buhari (AHMB) will equally confirm that he is an ardent listener of Radio Biafra? He confirmed his listenership of Radio Biafra through his presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu who said, "Buhari has denied expressing anti-Igbo sentiments as alleged by the propaganda channel, Radio Biafra.

The voice being ascribed to President Buhari in the recording repeatedly played back by the pirate station, is definitely not the president's. Nigerians should, therefore, ignore all propaganda designed to sow seeds of discord among them and promote a separatist agenda against national unity, solidarity, and progress.’’

Is it not amazing how they who initially bribed to ensure our media blackout ended up giving us a free worldwide media prominence?


When they finally discovered that our Radio/TV operates on a high frequency that is un-jammable and un-neutralizable, they unleashed an unprecedented level of mayhem never seen in democracy on us. If you listen to Radio Biafra or have Radio Biafra app on your phone mean an instant death sentence.

They thought that by killing us whenever we peacefully march on the streets that we will stop coming out or stop proclaiming Biafra. But they are wrong, as to us, our creed remains, BIAFRA or DEATH!

The truth is that Biafra is very near now. I know it because "God has allowed me to go to the mountain top. And I have looked over, and I have seen the land of Biafra. We only have to remain relentlessness and maintain our resolve and very soon, we will all get to the land of Biafra – the Promised Land’’
