NIGERIAN ARMY CONFISCATES NEWSPAPERS WITH BIAFRA REPORTS AND BAN VENDORS
Today 15th March 2016, Muhammadu Buhari has shown in another way that he is determined to wipe out Biafrans and take over Biafra land, as he orders the army to go after vendors with newspapers carrying Biafran news.
Fear gripped newspaper vendors as soldiers from 144 Battalion, which is under Ohafia 14 Brigade, stormed St. Michael’s Road at about 7 am today March 15, 2016, in two Hilux vans and seized their newspapers bearing Biafra reports.
An eyewitness said, at about 7 am, soldiers in two Hilux vans arrived with one of the vendors that they picked along Mosque road, asking him to identify the person who gave him the paper. But the vendor could not, because the person who gave him the paper had gone. They asked to know the publishers or suppliers but got no response. Then they confiscated all the papers on sight carrying Biafra stories, which included, New Republic, Vesym, Freedom Journal and The Authority. One of the vendors who spoke to newsmen said “We are yet to be told the reason for the confiscation, but the truth is that we have lost money as our readers are disappointed.”
A publisher, who pleaded for anonymity, condemned the actions of the soldiers. He said they were overstepping their bounds and vowed that “attempts by the military to gag the press will fail. We are publishing reports about Biafra like other national dailies do. Let them close down all the media houses because they are carrying Biafra stories, after all, we are not the only ones publishing stories on Biafra.”

This is what Muhammadu Buhari meant when he said on Aljazeera interview that “Nigeria will not tolerate Biafra”, stressing that Biafrans are joking with Nigerian security. Muhammadu Buhari has activated the strategy of physical attack on media carrying Biafra news using his army, since his bribery strategy has failed. In his relentless effort to frustrate the restoration of Biafra, he has continually shown to the world that he is a dictator and a tyrant. It is only under the rulership of a dictator and a tyrant that the media will not be allowed to operate freely. In civilized countries, soldiers fight war but in Nigeria, soldiers shoot peaceful protesters, Christians in prayer meeting, ban vendor and confiscate their newspapers for writing the truth while boko haram is busy slaughtering people in the north. This is one of the reasons why Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Director of Radio Biafra and Biafra TV, called Nigeria a zoo.
The international communities should understand that Biafrans have been mapped out for total extermination by Muhammadu Buhari and his Islamic government. That is why he is traveling all over the world making alliances and sourcing for arms.
On this note, I call on people of goodwill around the world to come to the aid of Biafrans as we are no longer interested in Nigeria.
