Biafra: Disobedience To 30th May Sit-at-home Order is a Spit On The Graves of Fallen Heroes

May 10, 2017

 "It doesn't take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle." --H. Norman Schwarzkopf

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself” —Joseph Campbell

“The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example” — Benjamin Disraeli

Heroes Remembrance Day is an important day in most countries of the world. It is a day to give thanks, to pay tribute and to remember those who gave their lives to protect the sovereignty and togetherness of any given country. To be honest, we should be grateful every single day of the year, but the 30th of May is the official day mapped out to honor our fallen Biafran soldiers, veterans and patriotic civilians.

It's irrefutable that almost all countries in the world remembers their fallen heroes and ours as a nation that once existed distinctively before and after amalgamation of Nigeria cannot be an exception. Freedom is the most precious gift of all time, and that is why our beloved heroes died fighting for themselves and the unborn generation to be free from Hausa-Fulani savagery. Our heroes shouldn’t just be remembered, they should be used as an example to inspire us all.

It is only a lunatic, coward and a boot-licker that will choose to remain a slave to another man in his own fatherland. That is why patriotic civilians/soldiers like our kind will rather die than remain a slave in our fatherland.

A Biafran must not be persuaded to honour a hero, but it should be done from a willing soul; and that is why IPOB have willingly agreed to sit at home to mark this year's annual event in solemn honour of our slained. Remembering our fallen heroes slaughtered in cold blood by the Nigerian government and the British from 1966 till date is what we must preserve.

Remembering our patriots will bring more fortunes to us and our land. We Biafrans must not spit on our heroes grave any longer by failing to give priority to a day mapped out to remember them. Biafrans are aware that our fathers never fought for worthless "One Nigeria", but rather a sovereign state of Biafra. They doggedly fought for total extrication from the clutches of darkness (Hausa-Fulani/Yoruba) and as such we must also go the extra mile in ensuring their legacy and dream never fades.


We should know that New Zealand's national day of remembrance is Anzac Day , 25 April. Day (11 November) is a national holiday in France and Belgium. In 2009 the Danish (Denmark) government established Veterans' Day with early events on 5 September where past and present members of the armed forces, who have done service in armed conflict are remembered. In Italy fallen heroes/soldiers are remembered on 4th November and even Great Britain, the creator of Nigeria is not left out.

I don't see any concrete reason Biafrans shouldn't sacrifice a day off business and work to sit at home and honour the brave patriots who kept us living and keeping on. If only we knew that the British and Nigerian government's conspiracy was to obliterate us but Chiukwu Okike Abiama (God) sustained and empowered our fathers and mother.


The poignant fact is that Nigerian government are bloodthirsty vermins who would always shoot at us on every rally/protest, that is why we chose to sit at home this year to remember our heroes. Sitting at home will always give a vivid picture of how resilient and determined we are to restore Biafra. We must know that the world is watching with keenness. We need to continuously prove to our enemies that we are more formidable than they ever thought.

While only one day of the year is dedicated to honouring our veterans, heroes (men & women), Biafrans must never forget the sacrifices made, lives slaughtered and maimed to defend our country (Biafra) and protect our freedom from the British contraption Nigeria.

As we all remember in great pain the 1966 pogrom of Biafrans in Northern Nigeria which aggravated the retaliation that led to 1967-1970 war, as we remember thousands of  gallant brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers that were shot by despicable Nigerian forces in National High school (Aba), Onitsha (head bridge, Ahaba (Asaba) and much more, Chiukwu Okike will hear our plights, accept our supplications and above all grant us the fruit of the ultimate sacrifice made by our heroes for our sake by granting us a sovereign state of Biafra.

  1. Any Biafran in a hellish entity called Nigeria should sit-at-home on May 30, 2017 to honor and pay respect to those who died fighting for your freedom. Even though, that freedom was not successfully gained in 1967—70 because we Biafrans are still in bondage, captivity and slavery in our own land today. We must respect our fallen heroes and heroines and must continue the righteous agitation to free our people and land from the satanic Islamic sharia republic of Nigeria. It's a divine task that must be completed in this season otherwise, Biafrans and their offspring will live in captivity, bondage and enslavement for eternity. We cannot and must not fail this time around.
