Recently as of February 9th, 2016 at the National High School, Port-Harcourt road in Aba, Abia State. A broad daylight massacre happened where innocent and peaceful Biafrans were singing and praying in an opened football pitch. Visual evidence abounds for public consumption to mention but a few. When people talk about BOKO HARAM Terrorist groups, Islamic Jihadists, Shariarist and Muslim terrorist and those they killed, they are talking about Biafrans that reside in the Northern and Central Nigeria. Their methods of killings have been by bombing, burning of Biafrans properties, markets, Churches, businesses, schools, homes, and outdoors activities where these same Biafran people gather for merriments or repose. The Indigenous People of Biafra has determined that only in the Sovereign State of Biafra will they really be safe and assured of their basic inalienable human rights.
This is the reason why Nnamdi Kanu, a prisoner of conscience has been manifested to salvage the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide from the subterfuge, frustration and extermination program of the Mohammedan emirate of northern Nigeria championed by Hitler Muhammadu Buhari the spoke person of Boko Haram. Therefore, we call on the European Union, United Nations, The United States, Amnesty International and the governments of the world to be the judge between the (IPOB) led by Nnamdi Kanu and DSS of Nigeria and their master; Hitler Muhammadu Buhari. We want to remind Buhari that Self-determination is a universal law. And at this, the Biafrans has the right to exist as a people.
