The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra and Director of Radio Biafra was abducted from his hotel room in Lagos, British-Nigeria on Wednesday, 14th day of October, 2015, by the officers of the Department of State Services (DSS), or State Security Services (SSS). He has been unlawfully detained for over 72 hours with no notice or official word from British-Nigeria. British-Nigeria is in breach of International Law and Convention of which she has obligation to respect.
Prior to Mr. Kanu’s abduction, British-Nigeria government massacred members of IPOB who were peaceably evangelizing for the restoration of Biafra on August 30, 2015. See http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1277421
The people of Biafra have endured the implacable onslaught of British-Nigeria which includes but not limited to pogroms, genocides, economic blockades, marginalization, subjugation, unconscionable exploitations, dehumanization, disenfranchisement, constant intimidation and harassments from British Nigeria security forces, deliberate destruction of her infrastructure, extortion, deprivation, and hitherto in clear and present danger of Islamic terrorism, and Islamization.
Nnamdi Kanu is an international figure of Biafra extraction organizing the beleaguered people of Biafra at home and abroad, in over 88 countries of the world, and educating Biafrans—via Radio Biafra and travels around the world—on the imperative of restoring the sovereignty of Biafra. Mr. Kanu realizes that British-Nigeria contraption portends mortal danger and potential extinction of an indigenous people, culture, language, and tradition if nothing is done.
The Hausa-Fulani and Yoruba peoples of British-Nigeria (mostly Muslims who wish to be governed by Sharia Law) and the indigenous people of Biafra (Mostly Christians who are republican) are wholly and completely incompatible; thus, entangled in an insoluble antagonism for which they are powerless to dispel. To make matters worse, British-Nigeria survives covetously, and exclusively at the expense and peril of the People of Biafra. For the treachery of leaving Biafraland open for British “economic interests” at all cost, the Muslim puppets are rewarded with power, protection, and fantastic oil revenue.
The Hausa, Fulani, and Yoruba British –Nigerians have ostensibly demonstrated the thirst for blood, and hatred of Biafrans in so many ways, chief of which is the starving of millions of Biafra children to their early death, and committing genocide against more than 3.5-6.5 million Biafrans in 1967; but never afforded Biafrans any space or succor to heal from the gaping wound. British-Nigeria’s continued existence is a perpetual crime against humanity.
To demonstrate her implacable wickedness, British-Nigeria neither built a memorial nor buried the dead who are still wailing in the wilderness; never included the Biafra genocide in any school curriculum; never reabsorbed the Biafra refugees that fled to neighboring countries; seized all the money and landed properties of Biafrans after the genocidal war of 1967-1970; and has never contemplated any modicum of justice for the wrongs done to Biafrans.
Instead of reconciliation and healing, British Nigeria has embarked on systemic distortions of facts, outright falsehoods, marginalization, intimidation, and further genocide of Biafrans; yet they insist that Biafra must remain one with the wicked contraption with no possibility of a referendum; or otherwise, genocide. Why…? Because British Nigeria wishes to not only covet Biafra’s oil, gas and other resources, but also to convert Biafraland to an Islamic pocket with the help of Arab League and Britain—the principal benefactors of this unconscionable contraption called British-Nigeria.
In Nigeria’s warped mind, Biafrans must comply or be killed. Buhari has already presided over the killing of hundreds of Biafrans since he assumed office. Herein then is the crux of Nnamdi Kanu’s mission, to educate his people in order to free them from the strangle hold of death and total annihilation. That is the crime for which he is now incarcerated and tortured, without due process and in violation of international law.
Mr. Kanu rose to the occasion first by trying to appeal to British-Nigeria government via law courts. But because British-Nigeria is tone deaf and unamenable to reason, such cases in matters of deep concern to Biafrans were met with scorn, levity, and disdain. The irredeemably corrupt British-Nigeria’s Judiciary embarked on a scheme of perpetual adjournment; thus, cases brought against British-Nigeria government were adjourned sine die, because there is no iota of justice in the wicked land.
Using legal means to attain some semblance of dignity through self-determination was comprehensively blockaded and arbitrarily denied by the British-Nigeria rogue state. The democratic avenue equally presented a dead end for the marginalized and serially massacred people of Biafra because the political landscape is rotten. To put it in perspective, only the Muslims, murderers, swindlers, cultists, traitors, liars, and cheats are viable in the British-Nigeria brand of politics. The entire political landscape is a chicanery because democracy cannot function in the absence of an honest umpire—the Judiciary whose fidelity to due process and the rule of law are unquestionable. British-Nigeria therefore only exists to maintain a strangle hold of death against Biafra. As you must know, that is wholly and completely unacceptable and unsustainable.
Violation of International Human Rights Conventions against Torture and Enforced Disappearance
The abduction of Nnamdi Kanu, is only one in hundreds of such “Enforced Disappearance” situations where persons or group of persons affiliated with Indigenous People of Biafra; or Identifying as Biafrans; or listening to Radio Biafra broadcasts; or suspected to be listening to Radio Biafra; or suspected to be affiliated with indigenous People of Biafra or Radio Biafra were abducted by British-Nigerian State Security Services (SSS, DSS). The British Nigeria Government has repeatedly broken International Law and must therefore be held accountable.
These systemic violations of Human Rights and “Enforced Disappearance” in fact, amount to crimes against humanity and must be treated as such.
The worst thing that the world leaders may do in this matter is asks the criminal state of British-Nigeria to investigate her own crimes. Deeds ordered by her hard core Islamist and Boko Haram founder president, Mr. Buhari. Will you send the bleeding back to her rapist? Of course not because that would further endanger Biafrans who are hitherto appealing to men and women of virtue to come to their rescue before an all-out war ensues. Holding the leader of Biafra unlawfully may lead to total disaster if people of good conscience fail to intervene. The world is already wearied from wars refugee problems.
Most importantly, the United Nations Convention against “Enforced Disappearance” enshrined in Article 2 of Human Rights Commission, in the 20th day of December 2006, of which Nigeria is bound by her ratification of this International Treaty in the 27th day of July 2009. This Binding Treaty proceeded from and was modelled after the International Convention against Torture.
Article 2 of the 2006 Convention defines "Enforced disappearance" as
“the arrest, detention, abduction or any other form of deprivation of liberty by agents of the State or by persons or groups of persons acting with the authorization, support or acquiescence of the State, followed by a refusal to acknowledge the deprivation of liberty or by concealment of the fate or whereabouts of the disappeared person, which place such a person outside the protection of the law.”
Article 1 of the same Convention further states that
“No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification for enforced disappearance.”
Article 6 further defines the widespread or systematic use of enforced disappearance as a “crime against humanity” which makes it liable to prosecution at International Court of Justice (ICC).
In the light of the above, it is clear that the United Nations have Probable Cause and Jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute Muhammadu Buhari, and his handlers and call for immediate and unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu and other IPOB members in her custody.
Muhammadu Buhari has, and is breaking international law and committing crimes against humanity and must therefore must be boycotted and stopped before it snowballs into genocide against the already wounded people of Biafra. This shouldn’t surprise you because Buhari is an avowed Islamic fundamentalist, a war criminal, and a genocidist who actively participated in the Biafra pogrom of 1966 and subsequent genocide from 1967-1970. He has never showed remorse for his role to date.
United Nations, presidents and world leaders are hereby implored to jettison British-Nigeria from the committee of nations. It does not by any stretch of the imagination deserve to be embraced by any civilized country.
Any conversation about the genocide, marginalization, and injustices meted to Biafrans due to greed, jealousy, and covetousness must be done without British government’s input, meddling, and or prejudice, because Britain is the arch architect, benefactor, and mastermind of the unfortunate predicament that Biafrans find themselves in British-Nigeria. If Britain is involved in any parts of this quagmire through the General Assembly or through the Security Council, then it would amount to a fatal conflict of interest and prejudice because her endless crimes against the people of Biafra are reserved only for God Almighty to adjudicate.
