Nobody should stay there in his house and blame Muhammed Buhari or the hijacked Nigerian Judiciary; we seriously have to admit that we have failed humanity in one way or another. I will only exclude Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's IPOB that have significantly and continuously fighting for justice. Others have either taken poor decision or failed to take action when due; they have stayed calm and allowed people mess our existence up. They say it is alright because they have their businesses; they eat and feed their families and allow impunity in Government and in other institutions. These and many more have made us guilty of the trial of a kid and the mother simply for protesting on the street.

Since last year; a nursing mother and her two years old child were arrested and imprisoned for protesting against the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu, this is the peak of the desperation of Muhammed Buhari and the incapacitation or rather immorality of the undisciplined Nigerian judiciary. They have lost their conscience and inhumanity against man now a culture in Nigeria under Buhari.

Mother and child imprisoned together unjustly by Tyrantbuhari
Recently; when the mother and her kid were boldly arraigned in Court in Rivers; fortunately for her, a picture caught her carrying her child while the proceedings of the Court progressed. The picture of her and her child had gone viral and there has been a #freeFlorenceUgozi campaign for her release. Biafrans are therefore called upon to join this campaign on twitter for her and child to be released immediately. Let us refrain from this "I don't care attitude" because it did not affect us or our family members; and do the needful by caring for every Biafran in need; for it is when we do so, will our tormentors from the other side will take us serious

Biafra matter has been met with the kind of desperation that sometimes makes one snap his finger; Biafra agitation is not a unique thing and one wonders why only in Nigeria, colorful crimes against humanity are being committed because they are asking for referendum! Agitation for referendum is currently happening everywhere in the world and they have been met with reason and not military force.

The Nigerian State as reported with video evidence by Amnesty International has regularly embarked on extra-judicial execution of the people of Biafra and leaving no stone unturned. Storm places of worship or gathering and shooting to kill at random that one begins to ask if the military is at war with citizens. The most alarming thing is these citizens are unarmed and had never been a threat of any form. They are continuously murdered because they share a different political ideology and want to determine for themselves.

The imprisonment of two years old child and the mother is a taboo or an immoral act; Nigeria has lost everything about humanity. In a bid to protect artificial boundary; Nigerian leaders have poured more blood than they poured energy. In a desperate move to kill Biafra and everything concerning Biafra; they today try two years old child and her mother for no just cause.

This desperation has made Nigeria a jungle; the law has no value and neither is the constitution respected. Everything has turned upside down and life is becoming animalistic; children are being tried, nursing mothers are incarcerated. Fathers are butchered, sisters and brothers are gunned down and the world is watching. Politics has taken the value of humanity; authorities would rather respect diplomatic ties than respect humanity, the world has gone wrong.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu expressed his right to free speech and association but was arrested and incarcerated for over a year now. We have failed to speak or arrest the situation and that has given birth to further impunities. If Nnamdi Kanu is imprisoned for talking and we looked on; a kid of two years old will be imprisoned for protesting or wearing Biafran cloth. If Nnamdi Kanu was imprisoned; a nursing mother will be imprisoned for coming out on the street to protest against what she feels is wrong. If Nnamdi Kanu is imprisoned and we allowed such impunity to stand; why won’t Bafrans continue to be massacred and neglected?

We are all guilty of the travails of that nursing mother and the horror of that kid that knows nothing and should be protected. We have failed woefully to address the issue of Nnamdi Kanu like during the days of Nazi until millions were lost; Buhari will keep migrating from one stage to another until we come together and break this chain of impunity. If we can stand today and make sure that Nnamdi Kanu gets justice; Buhari will see the strength of the people and respect the rights and lives of the people.
