We wonder why the Nigerian government would still detain and incarcerate Nnamdi Kanu and went further in killing unarmed Pro-Biafra protesters if they genuinely believed that Biafra is dead and now rested, if Garba Shehu claims to know much about history, he would have been privy to know that not just only one million Biafrans died like he said, in the Biafran genocidal war meted against them, but over 3.5 million people was brutally murdered during the war, as late Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu fought for defense while the Nigerian government fought for complete annihilation of Biafrans.
Biafrans in conjunction with Biafra writers said that Shehu's position on the issue of Biafra, is just a reflection of a political jobber and slave servant which as a naive individual, made a value-laden comments that does not have any scientific trace or bearings, reminding him that Nigeria died on the 1st of January after the expiration of the British amalgamation of the Southern and Northern protectorates in January 1914 which was supposed to last for a Century.
They reiterated that Biafra as a nation is still very much alive and kicking, and that only Biafrans died in the war and not Biafra, adding that a people may die but a Nation cannot die.

They vowed that the blood of innocent Biafrans of whom included women, youths, men and children massacred by Nigeria during the pogrom and those recently murdered during the protests, will keep on hunting Nigeria until it sees her complete dismemberment and destruction, stating that what separates Nigeria is stronger than whatever that binds her.
On the issue Garba Shehu raised concerning the support of Nigeria for the independence of Palestinians and Western Sahara in which he was quoted that those comparing between the two agitating nations and Biafra lacks knowledge of international politics, Biafrans questioned what knowledge of international politics he was referring to, stating that apart from one been made up of Islamists and Biafrans been dominated by Christians, there is no much difference amongst the three agitating nations and that what is good for them is also good for the people of Biafra.
"It is the height of madness and hypocrisy for President Buhari to call and support the independence of the Palestinians and Arab Western Sahara, while at the same time, files treason charges against Nnamdi Kanu for calling for the liberation and independence of Biafra", an anonymous commentator said.
He further opined that Nnamdi Kanu; the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra cum Director of Radio Biafra/Biafra TV, is a living legend who succeeded where Nigerian political contractors and merchants of misery failed.
According to him, looting Nigeria's treasury and overthrowing a legitimate government is more treasonable than operating Radio Biafra.
Stated he: "We are watching and still waiting for Nigeria to produce an empirical evidence of the charges of treason against Nnamdi Kanu. Based on the UN and AU Charters on right to self-determination of indigenous peoples, if Nnamdi Kanu is guilty, then the UN and AU charters are equally guilty".
"The outcome of this legal battle and judgment will go a long way in determining the slow or speedy disintegration of the Islamic Republic of Nigeria", he informed.
