BIAFRA: OPEN LETTER TO BIAFRANS-RESIDENTS IN AREWA LAND; AREWA QUIT NOTICE, A GENOCIDE NOTICE












By Chikwas Onu Ikpe || Biafra Writers

July 25, 2017

Fellow Biafrans, it is no longer news owing to the Ultimatum cum Quit Notice issued by the Arewa Youths. We must have been fed-up with the conversant of this underlying trend(s) that affects us as a people. I am prompted to remind you through this epistle, to making sure it re-vibrates in our consciousness, thereby curtailing the 'had-I-know syndrome' in the morrow.

First, I must express my candid perturbations in relation to the peremptory notice, because patently we have invested a lot in that bare-barren, arid land and now we are imposed upon a quit notice. On the other hand, I must say it is a welcome development.

A reminiscence of the 1966 pogrom lends plausibility, hence a posterior, to why I tagged that "Igbo Quit-Notice" a "Genocide Notice." The said notice is never a far cry from the 'Igbo massacre' in 1966. The notice in question appertains to all Biafrans (from the Old Eastern region), as we are being referred to as "Igbos" - make no mistake about it.

Fellow Biafrans, it is now clear that the (Arewa) interest has been geared towards the usual decimation and annexation of the Biafran people and her establishments and properties. We have right now, a countdown to another Biafra-targeted pogrom. Only time will tell before that ostensibly, "dismissive" notice results in an upshot, evocative of the 1945(Jos) massacre, 1953(Kano) massacre and the sporadic 1966 massacre of Biafrans in the North. Just about three decades after Lugard's experiment called Nigeria.

Precisely in 1945, the foremost cataclysm was impinged upon Biafrans who were slaughtered in Jos by the Hausa-Fulani. In 1953, the Northerners struck again; once more Biafrans were the victims. In May 1966, towards October, Biafrans were butchered and mowed down in a gory pogrom by these sanguinary fanatics.

Fellow Biafrans, it is conspicuous that, to all intents and purposes, the Kaduna declaration, the Ultimatum and the Quit notice, inter-alia, are no better than a Genocide Notice.

It is only a tree that keeps standing, unruffled after seeing and hearing signs and threats of its demise. A popular Igbo adage says, "Onye ghara Ndu kpa'aku, Onye Iro e rie ya." In other words, One who procures wealth at the expense of his life, endangers his wealth to his enemy. Another says, "Ndu bu isi", meaning - Life is paramount.

Fellow Biafrans, make hay while the sun shines. Make active plans now to return to your homeland. For crying out loud! You have a home! "Onye ajuru aju anaghi aju onwe ya"(One who has been rejected doesn't cast off himself). Make quick arrangements to move your establishments to your homeland. If God could bless you fa, how much better will He bless you in your homeland?

Those telling you that your properties would be bygone are blatant liars. Only secure your instrument of ownership, Certificate of Occupancy(C of O), to justify your ownership of the properties. When the time comes, Biafran Government would claim back your properties for you.

Those still in the fantasies of "One Nigeria", the Arewa Quit Notice should have woken you. If we are 'One Nigerian' as you euphemistically and fallaciously quote, why then should your supposed Hausa-Fulani brothers in the Arewa extraction coerce and threaten you to exit their land? This is just like a Landlord who can at any time decide to issue a quit notice to his tenant. "One Nigeria" is a fraud.

To all intents and purposes, Biafrans are negligible; we are regarded as infidels by the Hausa-Fulani. We are not ONE and can never be. For even Lugard the Creator described the North and the South as oil and water that can never mix. The only language Hausa/Fulani understands is "KILL" "DESTROY", whereas Biafrans value human lives; little wonder we call our fellow human being 'mmadu', meaning - The beauty of Life (that is to say Life is only beautiful when you have your fellow alongside you).

Fellow Biafrans, I envisage a replica of the 1945 massacre, sequel to the in-adherence to the "Genocide Notice." To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

Let me bring to a close by saying an Igbo adage; "Ukpara Okpoko gburu, Nti chiri ya." In other words, a stubborn Fly follows a corpse to its grave.
