April 14, 2017

The Biafra Heroes day, anually observed on 30th May is a day set aside by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu who is now a political prisoner, to remember and honour the fallen heroes and heroines who died in the course of fighting for the restoration of Biafra.

On 30th May 2014, the Indigenous People of Biafra gathered at Enugu in honour of our great heroes who died during the civil war of 1967-70, it was also observed in Aba, Abia State in 2015, in a gathering which could be termed historic as we saw multitude of people from far and near throng in to the state to mark the event with Nnamdi Kanu present at the time.

Biafrans in Anambra State played host to the event on 30th May 2016 at Nkpor, where the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) recorded the highest number of casualties since the agitation for Biafra spearheaded Kanu started; thousands have been Slained and many permanently wounded.


Come May 30th, 2017, Biafrans all over the world shall again honour all the fallen heroes, because they died that we may have a better future. The highest command of IPOB has instructed all Biafrans especially in Biafraland and those residing in Nigeria to observe a “sit at home” event in rememberance of our fallen heroes.

We must sit at home to honour our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and over 3.5 million Biafran children who were starved to death and massacred during the Biafran genocide of 1966-1970, including those who have been killed since Muhammadu Buhari came into power. Many were gunned down by Nigerian combined forces in Aba, Onitsha, Bayelsa, Igweocha (Port Harcurt), Ogoni, Nkpor and Asaba.

We must remember them because they died fighting for our freedom, they died for the restoration of the kingdom of God on earth, they sacrificed their lives that we and the generations to come may live to enjoy the milk and honey given to us by the most high Chukwuokike Abiama himself, but denied us by parasitic Hausa-Fulani and Britain.

If we fail to remember and honor them, their spirit will not forgive us. Observing a “sit at home” for one day will cost us nothing, especially when we are doing it in honour of those who sacrificed their lives for us to be free from intimidation, subjugation, annihilation, marginalization, harassment, exploitation, slavery and forceful Islamization.  Only enemies of freedom and lovers of evil will go about their business on May 30th 2017.

Prior to the emergence of Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB, there was no Biafran heroes’ Remembrance Day. We are privileged to be among the initiators of this solemn annual event. Eventhough many of us did not experience the war, we feel the pain and anguish unleashed upon them. The only way we can show how much we treasure the ultimate sacrifice they made is to observe the sit-at-home on 30th may, 2017.

We shall remember how the Nigerian shelling rained bullets like water on them, how kwashiorkor ate up their flesh as they were starved to death, how bomb blew their body into pieces, how our mothers were raped to death by the Nigerian army, how they hacked open and dissected the foetus of the pregnant women, how Bruce Mayrock burnt himself to death in order to draw attention of humanity towards the ongoing genocide at the time, how IPOB were rounded up and gunned while praying for the release of Nnamdi Kanu at National high school Aba and afterwards dumped their in a burrrow pit, how they fearlessly received poisonous bullets and fell at Nkpor and Igweocha; All of these we must remember on 30th May.


We must SIT-AT-HOME and remember them on May 30th 2017, for this is too little a sacrifice to make considering the enthusiastic business minded nature of Biafrans. Closing your shops for a sit-at-home just for one day will not deprive us of our daily bread. Biafra Writers urges everyone to observe this event, because in so doing, we are also sending out a strong message to the world that the war of attrition that lasted for 3 years is about to take place again and as such every effort to prevent it from happening should be engineered; starting by conducting a referendum to determine our fate in Nigeria.
