POPE ACKNOWLEDGES BIAFRANS AT THE VATICAN CITY IN A MAMMOTH CROWD PEACEFUL RALLY

BIAFRA:
POPE ACKNOWLEDGES BIAFRANS AT THE VATICAN CITY IN A MAMMOTH CROWD PEACEFUL RALLY

Biafrans have reached another milestone as members of the Indigenous People of Biafra stormed the Vatican City in their large numbers to see the Pope. This happened as part of the on-going quest for the restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra. Biafrans in Italy yesterday, the 28th of February 2016 trooped out en masse to St. Peters square in the Vatican City to meet with the Pope and to register their desire for "Holly See's" intervention and mediation in the restoration of Biafra. During the rally, Biafrans who were also joined by numerous Italians matched peacefully with mini and large banner Biafran flags, walking into the square to celebrate mass with the Pope at the Vatican City in Rome, Italy.
In some of the footages released by the Indigenous People of Biafra, policemen were spotted watching over the peaceful protesters, while some were seen receiving fliers from them and encouraging them for their orderly conduct. Recall that Biafrans had a day before, embarked on a “phone call campaign” to the Vatican, to send the message of the restoration of Biafra to the Holy Father. The Papacy who celebrated the mass himself, spoke mostly Italian as the mammoth crowd of Biafrans watched, listened and waved their flags in happiness. At the end of his sermon, the Holy Father acknowledged and greeted the indigenous people of Biafra among other people who were present at the square.
You would recall that months ago, the leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra – Nnamdi Kanu, was extra judicially incarcerated for seeking a different identity from the Nigerian oppressive state. There were numerous outcries from both the international and local quarters for his unconditional release, but the government of Nigeria led by Gen MNohammadu Buhari, remained adamant even after several courts have pronounced Kanu innocent of all charges and called for his unconditional release. Members of the IPOB in various countries embarked on peaceful protests for the release of Kanu and the restoration of Biafra. You would also recall that there have been numerous cases of human right abuses and military clamp-downs on peaceful Biafran protesters in Nigeria including mass murder of Biafrans who gathered for prayer sessions in Aba and numerous other cases where the armed forces in Nigeria fired live ammunitions and killed innocent Biafran protesters who peacefully matched to register their desire for the release of Nnamdi Kanu and the restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra. However, the gruesome approach which the Nigerian government is taking on the matter has proven to be utterly ineffective as the Biafran spirit cannot be crushed.
The Vatican City rally is indeed, another landmark achievement as Biafrans hope that the papacy would utilise his revered office to prevail on Nigeria to do the needful which is the unconditional release of Kanu and an immediate conduct of referendum to determine the fate of Biafans. Nigeria has to be made to go back to the drawing board before it’s too late. Biafrans are peace-loving people and have remained peaceful in their approach to achieve self-determination, amidst the oppression and the excessive use of force by the military but Nigeria must be made to understand the need to prevent a possible catastrophe before it happens. As events unfold, one can no longer question the resolve of Biafrans to restore Biafra. As the message of the restoration of Biafra spreads like wild fire; to every country of the world, to every media outlet and to every international personality, one can no longer misconstrue the message of Biafrans nor pretend to be unaware of what they represent or want. Biafrans in their peaceful approach have succeeded in registering their message and the message is crystal clear – “Biafra or Death.”
