It will be another time of deep reflection, a sober time for all Biafrans around the world, a time to review our past and embrace the future, a time to regain confidence, to take counsel, to honour our fallen heroes and heroines, to regain our national pride, identity and belief. It is 30th May again.
One might wonder why this day means so much to Biafrans; it marvels the world the extent we go and sacrifices we make to honour our fallen heroes who have paid the uttermost price to ensure our existence today. Of a surety, "we do not just love our nation (Biafra), we are fanatical about it."

The remembrance of fallen heroes and heroines is a norm across the globe: United States Of America, Britain, Israel etc; it is not an exceptional occasion in the sense of it. What is different in the case of Biafra is that despite the genocide and other war crimes committed against Biafrans during the Biafra war, Nigeria and Britain considers our efforts to remember our fallen heroes as an act of treason. They (Nigeria and Britain) would prefer we cast the memories of our fallen heroes into the sea of forgetfulness.
It became more evident from 1949 that our identity is being resented and endangered in Nigeria. At every slight provocation, Biafrans have being murdered systematically with the aid of their ungodly slave masters, Britain, who abhors our audacious nature and our resistance to their system of deceit. The 1967-1970 Biafra war was the peak of it, the Indigenous People of Biafra witnessed with a total dismay, immeasurable cruelty.

The Biafra genocide initiated and carried out by Muhammadu Buhari, Obafemi Awolowo and Yakubu Gowon was recorded as the greatest of all as much as the African history can tell. Whether by guns, starvation, diseases, fear, mass killings, tortures, air raids, etc, statistical analysis prove that well over six (6) million Biafrans lost their lives in a conspired mission by the world powers masked behind Nigeria to exterminate Biafrans.
"No greater love has no man than this: that a man could lay his life for his friends." Our heroes died that we might live, Bruce Mayrock lost his life to give us ours, our scientists and journalists were murdered for our sake; the least we can do is to always remember and honour them.

The Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is not leaving any stone unturned to this regards. We are advocating for a 100% compliance from our citizens, friends and lovers of freedom across the globe. The blood-thirsty Nigerian security forces will be starved this time.
On May 30, 2017, we are all advised to sit at home. Our show of patriotism this year will send a strong message to Nigeria and Britain that our resilience and desire to restore Biafra cannot be retrained by mere guns and prison bars.
For the death of Biafrans murdered at Nkpor, Igweocha, Aba and Onitsha, for the tears Nigeria has cost Biafra, for the victims of the Ryom Rail Station massacre in Plateau, for the sake of the souls massacred at Ahaba (Asaba), for every sigh and moments of grieve, in memory of our 1967-1970 heroes, for the sake of the polluted land and sea of Ijaw, Ogoni and other parts of Biafra: let us sit at home on 30th May 2017.
