Biafra: The Unabated And Unlawful Detention Of Biafra Activists And The Silence Of World Leaders

By Chidiebere Eberechi Kalu || For Biafra Writers

December 11, 2017

It has been noted that Nigerians are never comfortable nor happy hearing Biafrans say they are tired of staying in Nigeria and wants out of the union to restore their own ancient nation, Biafra. As a result, they have been fighting very hard to ensure they quell the legitimate agitation for Biafra using whatever guise in their possession. But all their efforts has been met with a hard rock as the Biafra agitation continues to garner more support around the world.

Since the whole macabre drama that ensued when the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was captured and incarcerated by the Nigerian government via its agency, the Department of State Security, DSS, and all myriads of entreaties, including offers made to him to renounce the agitation, was as well, faced with strict resistance, exuding the obvious fact that nothing absolutely could be used or given to measure up for his total freedom and that of his people.

Ever since, Biafrans, especially those indentified as IPOB, have been undergoing series of illegal and extrajudicial arrests, torture, detention, killings and many other inhumane treatments in the hands of the Nigerian government. They have sworn to continue to suppress Biafrans using excessive force and aggression, hence they continued to agitate for their freedom and indeprndence from Nigeria.

Apart from the IPOB leader, many notable Biafra activists had since been detained unjustly for simply pursuing the cause they believe in. Some Biafrans such as Benjamin Madubugwu, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, David Nwawuisi and Bright Chimezie, amongst others, has been on extrajudicial detention for over two years now without trial. Not forgetting those numbering more that 60 who are incarcerated a Aba Prisons facility. In the case of Bright Chimezie who is currently been detained by the DSS for over two years now, despite a subsisting court order for his release and subsequent compensation for breaching his fundamental rights, by an Uyo Federal High Court.

All these broad daylight impunity and flagrant disregard to the rule of law and judicial sanctity, has continued unabated because the world leaders and those in authority decided to look the other way, pretending that all is well.

Early in September this year, the private residence of Nnamdi Kanu was invaded, attacked and destroyed by men of the Nigerian army but shockingly till today, nothing has been said or done about it. All the evidential killings and violence perpetrated by the Nigerian army and other security agencies against innocent and defenseless Biafrans have been carefully and successfully swept under the carpet while the world leaders and those in authority maintained deafening silence on these heinous crimes committed against humanity.

Biafrans, are therefore asking those campaigning and advocating for world peace and justice sustainability what they have been doing if truly they exist. They should do well by informing us if they do not care about the well-being and plights of Biafrans in Nigeria, so that they can resort to self-help.
