Biafra: Before The North Issues Another Quit Notice Over IPOB’s Election Boycott, Bring Back Our Children

By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | For Biafra Writers

November 6, 2018

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Biafran people has spoken and the enemy understood him well. Albeit, some people might take his words to be a mere "lip speech," it doesn't matter since every fool must learn in one way or the other.

Remember, this work is never meant to apportion blame to anybody but devised to enable those who cannot read the science of time to come to the understanding of what time is saying at this point in our lives so as to make haste while the sun shines. From the view of the writer, l can see freedom conceived for the Biafrans and this time, it will come to light. I see freedom in the belly of the yellow sun protruding. The evil night is about to end.

It is high time Biafrans understood how the northern psyche works. Whenever they see Biafrans united, they became rattled and upset. To ease their anger, they slaughter any Biafran they see. The "Quit Notice" issued on Biafrans to vacate the North was as a result of the 2016 Heroes' Day sit-at-home exercise which was inarguably 100% successful in Biafraland.

Pan-Igbo organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo under the leadership of John Nnia Nwodo promised the northern oligarchy the head of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu because they felt threatened by his insurmountable and unquenchable agitation for a free sovereign Biafran state and to avert the looming horror that was perceived at the height of the quit notice. But as it stands now, Ohanaeze has nothing left to promise or part with if their northern masters should come calling again. The forthcoming 2019 elections is almost here and the Biafrans are set to boycott it. This time around, there shall be no notice before the bloodbath. The truth must be spoken no matter what – Biafrans living in Northern Nigeria should bring back our children this December before the hot period of the election.

The uncomfortable truth before us all is that the gory events of 1660s is glowering at us. And if we don't learn from past events of the pogroms of 1960s, it shall be repeated yet again. As Chinua Achebe would narrate the events of 1960s as follows;
"The northerners turned on Igbo (Biafrans) civilians living in the North and unleashed waves of brutal massacres that Colin Legun of The Observer (UK) was the first to describe as a pogrom. Thirty thousand civilian men, women and children were slaughtered, hundreds of thousands were wounded, maimed and violated, their homes and property looted and burned- and no one asked any questions. A Sierra Leonean living in Northern Nigeria at that time wrote home in horror: 'The killing of the Igbos has become a state industry in Nigeria'."

Achebe in his further expression of surprise over the carriage of the Nigerian government controlled by the Northerners said, "What terrified me about the massacres in Nigeria was that: If it was only a question of rioting in the streets and so on, that would be bad enough, but it could be explained. It happens everywhere in the world. But in this particular case a detailed plan for mass killing was implemented by the government – the army, the police, the very people who were there to protect lives and property."

From the above citation, a salient conclusion could be explored – the federal government ordered the army and the police to kill the Biafrans living in the north and west.

Also, Oyeweso (1992) noted that the advice by Chukwuemeka Ojukwu to the fleeing Easterners to return to the North for the sake of national unity was a decision Ojukwu later regretted as thousands who heeded his advice went back to the North and were slaughtered during the Northern Pogrom.

As Emefiena Ezeani pointed out in his book titled: ‘In Biafra Africa Died,’ "The refugees (the fleeing Biafrans from the North) told stories of horror; how they were hunted from one place to another, the raping of their daughters and wives in their presence, how fathers and husbands were chopped to death in the presence of their children and wives, how pregnant women were disemboweled and unborn babies killed."

I am not giving anybody any order but our children are precious. We can't afford to have them killed again in the name of maintaining national unity. A stitch in time saves nine. This piece of work should be seen as an advice not an order. Use this December to safely bring back our children.
