Biafra: After a successful Sit-at-Home exercise by Biafrans, what new evil does the Nigerian Army have in the offing?

This time last year, after the successful Sit-at-Home by Biafrans in support of Biafra referendum and independence, the Nigerian Army conducted their sinister Operation Python Dance. It was that operation, a so-called training activity to curb criminality by the Army, that saw its men invading the house of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu. After the invasion, more than 28 bodies of dead Biafrans were found in and around the compound, while Kanu and his parents were nowhere to be found ever since.

Now, this year, after the more than 95 per cent successful compliance in the Heroes Remembrance Day Sit-at-Home directive issued by IPOB, the Nigerian Army appears to be concocting yet another sinister plan for another bloody invasion of Biafraland. Many Biafrans are now asking “what is the Nigerian Army concocting this time?”
The question came about following a statement made by the Nigerian Army recently to the effect that it was worried about a new trend of the use of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in Biafraland as published by Vanguard newspaper on 15 June 2018.

The Army was reported as saying that although the zone was the most peaceful among all its so-called six zones in the country, “the introduction of IEDs as means of fighting enemies had become a source of great concern to the military and other security agencies.” The report quoted the Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, Col. Sagir Musa.

Speaking at a media summit organized by the Nigerian Union of Journalists, NUJ, at Concorde Hotel Owerri, the Islamist military personnel spoke against the backdrop of a bomb explosion that once detonated at the home of one of the Northern house-slaves cum the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo.

All Biafrans who responded to the news during Biafra Writers' inquest into the matter thought the Army was joking. They contended that it was the Army and its Police and DSS sister agencies that were detonating the IEDs and therefore would not deceive anybody by saying they were worried.

“We know they are the ones throwing the bombs just to deceive the world into believing that IPOB is a terrorist group, don’t mind them,” said John Okilo (not his real name), an IPOB leader who resides in Awka, Anambra State. “They will go into the bush and beat the drum and then come out to ask who was beating the drum.”
