The recent directive by the sick President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, to the Nigeria military chiefs is an indication that the clamor for the restoration of Biafra anchored by the Indigenous People of Biafra led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a huge nightmare to the cabal in the Nigeria government. Buhari has directed the Nigeria security forces to fight against the people of Biafra seeking the right to self-determination, forgetting that he went to the UN General Assembly in 2015 and canvassed publicly for the same right to self-determination for the Palestine and Western Sahara people. According to the hypocritic President of Nigeria; the right to self-determination is inalienable and should not be delayed for the sake of peaceful co-existence.

It is hypocritical that an unarmed Biafra Security Service (BSS) created by IPOB to curtail the menace of Fulani herdsmen is causing ripples while the Hisbah/Sharia police operating in the north region of Nigeria for a long time are not seen as a threat. The Hisbah/Sharia police are actively supported by the northern religious and political leaders even when their activities are perpetrated against non-Muslims. It is a fact that the Nigeria security forces have not been able to protect the Biafra people against the Fulani herdsmen which make the formation of the BSS a welcome development. The BSS is made up of unarmed men and women who will basically be involved in intelligence gathering for the well being of their people.

Nnamdi Kanu has chosen the path of non-violent for the clamor for self-determination but as a wise man he knows he is dealing with barbarians in the Nigeria government. He taught and guided his people to be peaceful even in the face of provocation but he is not oblivion of the fact that when you push a man to the wall the only option left for him to be alive is to fight back. The Nigeria government foolishly thinks Nnamdi Kanu is their problem instead of showing gratitude to him for been able to hold on to the Biafra people in the face of brutality and provocation.

From BokoHaram, Fulani herdsmen and the Nigeria security forces, the people of Biafra are continually melted with violence and death. The waste of lives of the people of Biafra seeking to exercise the right to self-determination has become intolerable and the youths are beginning to lose patience. The question ringing all around is, “why die as a civilized man when you are given a chance to die as a warrior?”
The heartlessness and barbarism against the people of Biafra by the Nigeria government will not be tolerated for long. The continuous bloodshed of innocent and defenseless indigenes on their own land is a call for a second genocide against the people of Biafra and will be resisted in all entireties. The people of Biafra have never called for war but the Nigeria government has continued to invoke martial law procedures in Biafra land. Sure, the Nigeria government is preparing for a second war against the Biafra people and it will be foolish for them to sit back and do nothing. The international community has continued to maintain a conspiratory silence even when Amnesty International has indicted the Nigeria security forces for extra judicial violence and death of Biafrans.

The recent press release of the Biafra National Guard (BNG) has clearly stated that the only language the Nigeria government understands better is that of violence which they plan to bring into play. The highhandedness of the Nigeria government against peaceful agitators for self-determination will manifest into a greater menace than BokoHaram that cannot be managed or controlled. The directive to the military to curb the activities of the people of Biafra seeking the right to self-determination is a silly decision and every sane mind must call on the Nigeria government to test its might via a referendum which is clearly the most peaceful and diplomatic means to forestall the breakdown of law and order.
