The high rate of sufferings, servitude, miscarriages of justice, coercive terror, perpetrated on daily basis and directed to the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, since the inception of Biafra agitation in Nigeria in recent times, has become a methodical manner Buhari, the president of Nigeria, chose to maim and frustrate Biafrans and their leader.
The incessant brutality of the Indigenious People Of Biafra is enormous, it is not just a sad situation but also perplexing, how the world could keep mute to watch these brutalities unleashed on Biafrans and yet gain support from some European nations, to the extent of supplying arms to these wicked leaders.

The world will not claim ignorance of several peaceful protests, numerous petitions, articles and reports from IPOB and other Human Rights organisations around the world exposing these atrocities.
Perhaps the Buhari-led adminstration is testing our resolve to remain peaceful. But then, it is said that "where peaceful approach fail, violence becomes the only option" and it is obvious that it is the only language a tyrant and democratic dictator like Buhari understands.
Owing to the recent order by the Attorney General of Nigeria to release all Biafra agitators, Buhari, who championed the gruesome massacre of IPOB on several occasions, has in recent days instructed the DSS to engage in kidnapping Biafrans mostly in Biafra land. In their bid to carry out this directive, Buhari's petty DSS on the 25th of August 2016, kidnapped 5 IPOB principal officers with names: Ikechukwu Ugwuoha, Asochukwu Ugochukwu, Sunday J. Okafor, Joseph Okorie and Ekene Onuoha.
Ikechukwu Ugwuoha, one of the released Biafrans on the 11th of August 2016 from Abia State prison, granted Biafra Writers an interview immediately after his release where he emphatically stated that "my released means nothing to me until Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB is released and Biafra freed." This assertion did not go down well with dictator Buhari who has been furious over the victory IPOB has recorded in seeking the release of her people. This expression was the principal factor that informed Ikechukwu's abduction by the DSS.

Buhari is under obligations, law and oath of allegiance to uphold justice and respect the rule of law, but the encroachment of human rights abuses measured to IPOB in Nigeria paints a different picture of such commitment.
Is there any reason to justify the kidnap of five innocent Biafrans or re-arrest of someone who was acquitted by the court of law? Is there any law governing Nigeria State at all? Why is Buhari acting as an executive, legislature as well as the judiciary? Why is Buhari flouting every law in the Constitution of Nigeria? Buhari plotted a coup in 1983, it's on record, Buhari killed Biafrans in 1966-1970 it's well documented, Buhari rigged himself into power , it is evident; Buhari is the originator of Boko Haram insurgency, it has been established; Buhari disobeyed court orders never to release Nnamdi Kanu, the evidence is there.

Then I ask, why has Buhari not been convicted of all these crimes? Why is he moving freely? Why is the innocent paying for these crimes Buhari committed? Why is the world silent on all these heaps of injustice done to Biafrans and its leader?
We beckon on European Union, United Nations, African Union, and the world at large to speak up against these atrocities, stand up for justice, shun injustice meted on Biafrans, checkmate the dictator and his excessive abuse of power to further impoverish the Indigenous People Of Biafra. Amnesty International should do more to stop this tyrant, his murderous agents and expose nations that are in partnership with them. Human Rights organisations should also do all they can to protect the lives of Biafrans.
Buhari and DSS ought to know that Biafra is a moving train that cannot be stopped, not even detention or kidnap can stop it. IPOB is raising this alarm to the hearing of the entire world: Buhari and DSS should release these 5 innocent citizens along with other Biafrans detained on the account of self determination. They are not terrorists and should not be treated as one.
