The compromised South-East governors of Nigeria
The South East Governors are either far from reality or they are purposely banking on the might of the northern oligarchy that they worship and pledge their allegiance to so as to spite the people they claim to lead. After hastily proscribing the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, the five cowards of the South East have allowed the murderous Nigeria Army to continue to violate and kill their people. One certainty is that the people of Biafra are aware of the wicked plans of these governors and will not be deterred by them.

The Chairman of the political brides of the north, Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has recently stated that his group will not abandon the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and that they have also resolved to rehabilitate and reintegrate his followers. A sane mind will question the decision of the South East Governors Forum because it spikes of hypocrisy and confusion. The South East Governors have never been able to question the wanton violence and killing of their people by the Nigeria security forces but were quick to accept that they are terrorists. The worst mistake the South East Governors will make is to believe they are destroying Nnamdi Kanu not knowing that they are colliding  against the collective decision of the people. By now they ought to know that the consciousness of the people is awoken and cannot be crushed by military force.

David Umahi accepted that Nnamdi Kanu should be commended for raising the awareness for restructuring of the country but he and his gang still went ahead to proscribe the activities of IPOB so as to enable them pursue their personal political ambition without any form of opposition from Nnamdi Kanu. The invasion of the home of the IPOB leader will not in any way dampen the desire of the people to restore Biafra but has proven that the politicians are desperate to quench the choice of the people.

I was expecting those calling for restructuring to take advantage of the silence of the IPOB leader since his home was invaded to begin to make sensible steps in achieving the restructuring plans but they have not even been able to convince the Hausa/Fulani Oligarchy. They keep urging for a unity that has been continually threatened by the well planned killing of the Biafran people by the Nigeria government. The South East Governors and other politician should know that the Indigenous People of Biafra are not in disarray but have now become well grounded and bonded towards the quest for the restoration of Biafra.

Is it cowardice, foolishness or wickedness from the South East politicians that made them purposely ignore the fact that a special military force made mostly of Hausa/Fulani Muslim stock personnel was sent to eliminate IPOB Leader and his followers. They claimed they want to dialogue with Nnamdi Kanu while an invasion of his home was being orchestrated.

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State will prefer to receive moral instructions from the Oni of Ife that IPOB cannot be declared a terrorist group and also remain dumb while the Nigeria Army is lying that they did not invade the Afara-Ibeku home of Nnamdi Kanu, whose neighborhood is a stone throw from the Abia State Government House in Umuahia. Whereas, the home of Nnamdi Kanu has been a shopping center for the special military force deployed for Operation Python Dance 2 to raid and loot personal and household articles, even food items are being carted.

The Nigeria Army has continue to display its unprofessionalism and ignorance while denying knowledge of the attack on Nnamdi Kanu’s family home which led to his disappearance but the bullet holes riddling the buildings bears witness against them. Laying credence to the invasion of the IPOB Leader’s home by the Nigeria Army is a video recorded live via Facebook by Biafran Journalist – Okonkwo Somto, who was inside the house during the bombardment. Kingsley Kanu, younger brother of the IPOB Leader has said that they were together at their family home when soldiers attacked and began shooting everything at sight, rooms were ransacked and looted, even the family dog was killed, and he has not seen his elder brother since that day.

Governor Umahi is advised not to exert his already dwindled energy to test-run the planned amnesty programme under the covet agenda of registration for empowerment and rehabilitation of IPOB youths because the whereabouts of Nnamdi Kanu is what is paramount in their minds. The South-East Governors may be the first victims of the rage that may befall the country if any harm has befallen the IPOB Leader.  Reality has proven that Nnamdi Kanu has woken millions of consciousness and is more respected than every of the South East politicians combined together. IPOB has never been implicated in any violent acts but there are other Biafran groups who pledge allegiance to Nnamdi Kanu but does not ascribe to his non-violent way towards the restoration of Biafra.

If the Nigeria intelligence agency is proactive enough it could have understood that it is Nnamdi Kanu that is keeping them calm and not fear. The continual suppression and killing will someday lead to an anarchy which may become uncontrollable and better organized than BokoHaram and as usual the Nigeria Military whose strength is only seen in killing defenseless people will be too disorientated to curb the menace.

If the Nigeria government had a capable intelligence, by now it should have known that the peace been enjoyed is because of the well structured and organized pattern in place towards the clamor for the restoration of Biafra. It is already known that the Nigeria government is ready for guerilla warfare to enable them unleash mayhem upon innocent Biafrans but the cabal has become overwhelmed by the lack of physical combat from the Biafra people and the pressure from the international community. Muhammadu Buhari and his cohorts must understand that military operations and weaponry will not be able to crush the consciousness of the people of Biafra towards the restoration of Biafra.

Biafra National Guard has sworn that they will protect their people against extra judicial killings and violence and I expect them to be able to live up to it, as I also plead to the Biafran people to support them; do not engage in violence against unarmed civilian but will always express their right as required by law including the international law. Whether you want to accept it or not, the reality is that the raging killing of indigenes of Southern Cameroon by government forces because of the quest for independence, bearing in mind that there are border villages with Biafra territories to theirs which will definitely lead to an alignment, even the forceful closing down of borders will not be able to curtail the alliance. The South East Governors and politicians must backtrack from selling out their people or become the first victims of the looming revolution.
