IPOB: Biafra Writers Condemns Illegal Abduction Of Edo Unit Coordinator And His Brother

By Onoja Christian Obinna || For Biafra Writers

September 22, 2017

It has been established that fire cannot be used to quench fire. Similarly, employing brute force can never be used to destroy an ideology whose time is ripe. Understanding the root purpose of an action is only the key to granting its solution.

Recently, the Nigerian government has intensified efforts to quell the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, which is geared towards the restoration of the sovereign State of Biafra which has been in existence before the invasion of her territory by the British colonial agent Sir Frederick Lugard, leading to the unholy and forced amalgamation of Biafra with the Sokoto Caliphate of the North and Oduduwa Republic of the West, giving birth to a country named Nigeria as concocted by Lugard's girlfriend, Flora Shaw.

Having fought a bloody genocidal war from 1967-70 with the Nigerian military government, the quest to restore the nation of Biafra have once again reverberated and has saturated the world's atmosphere with a high intense of pressure on the Nigerian government to free the people of Biafran by simply conducting a peaceful, conventional referendum for them to freely determine their fate as requested by a frontline freedom fighting outfit, the IPOB. However, instead of the government of Nigeria to address the issue democratically, they choose to adopt the excessive use of force as if the country is under military rule.

This use of force have culminated to the premature death of several youths of IPOB of which the recent, is the invading and killing of scores of unarmed civilians within the ages of sixteen and above in the hometown of the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Umuahia and the looting of his house by the Nigerian Army.

As if the Nigerian government is not tired in committing these heinous crimes against humanity and the people of Biafra including the wanton gross violation of their human rights as enshrined in the United Nations Charter, they have once again resorted to the secret abduction of Biafran youths.

The latest being the illegal abduction of one Paul Nwaogba, an IPOB Unit Coordinator in Edo State, Nigeria, along with his younger brother Obinna who has never engaged in the activities of IPOB. Obinna was whisked away in the wee hours of today(the 21st of September, 2017) and was taken to Ogida Police station as they noticed that they were been traced by neighbours.

The incessant and unprovoked abduction of Biafran youths by Nigeria security forces have continued unabated in the whole of South-East and South-South of Nigeria and they must be compelled by the international communities at the ongoing United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to desist from such illicit acts and grant referendum to the people to determine their fate of nationhood.

The use of force is never a route to solving issues within a democratic setting as constantly used by the Nigerian government and as such, the Nigerian government is compelling IPOB to abandon it's adopted disposition of peaceful engagement to defending themselves against the brute force of the Nigerian government as they cannot keep losing their youths to the trigger-happy Nigerian soldiers. If this method or decision is approved, it would be drastic to the entire globe and the remnants of the present day Nigeria would be difficult to gather from the ground.
