Mazi Nnamdi Kanu during his epic broadcast from the capital city
of Israel made more than 50 million Biafrans to stand up to
observe One Minute silence in honour of the 28 men who paid the
ultimate prize for him to live and for all that have died for Biafra,
especially the more than 3million that died in 1967/70.
I was listening, I stood up, some silent tears flowed down and in
the silence of my heart I said a prayer for them. Even good hearted
non Biafrans listening joined us to remember our heros. We all are
books of red. We all bleed whenever we are opened.
But some dark evil mischievous people didn’t see this memorable
action, they rather picked offense at the mention of a dog.
They were so surprised that a dogs name was mentioned. Some said
they lost respect for the IPOB leader for mentioning a dog who
felled alongside the twenty eight courageous Biafrans.
I am not surprised. In 1966 Odumegwu Ojukwu mentioned and
advocated for Confederate state, yet the people who saw him as
equals never understood him. They bemoaned and rejected it. It
took them almost 48 years to realize they need such a Confederate
state Ojukwu of blessed memory suggested.
Even till today restructuring still elude them. Biafrans are always ahead. Some time ago USA celebrated a dog, a police dog who died of
cancer while in active service. He was given a befitting burial. The
pictures litter the internet. You can search for it. In an era people
advocate for animal right, Nigerians are outraged a dog was
mentioned. A dog that was killed by their own military. They are
not even ashamed that their own military went to a civilian house
in 2017 and killed a helpless dog.
I wondered what my own dog Lucky would have done in such situation. Definitely it will continue barking trying hard to save me. Maybe die while trying. Biafrans have left you people behind. We treasure life. Human and animal life alike. While northern Hausa-Fulani kill people in the North, we in the East protect life.
But Nigerians have problem with it.
A people that have refused to grow. Bukola Saraki became their hero for evading police and drove himself to Senate house. But somehow an Nnamdi Kanu whose house was surrounded by army battalion with armored vehicles and fighter jets, and yet escaped without the military
knowing how he made it alive is a coward to them.
How do I describe a Nigerian?
The truth is that years of political bartering and economic rape has
truly destroyed the psych of Nigerians. Is that not why Nnamdi
Kanu who never stole their money suddenly became their problem,
while Atiku is now the saviour in waiting. He is their problem for
trying to bring them out of slavery.
I pity Nigerians. I truly do. I Elochukwu Ohagi will continue to
sound it here. Both Atiku and Buhari will never give you the
freedom you desire. Just like you all brought out a fragile 75 year
old and made him a god. That’s how you all will create another god
who will disappoint and kill most people. Until the people rise up, freedom will continue to elude you Nigerians. But the good news is that Biafrans have left you people behind.
