Regarding how Biafra was defeated a second time

03 November 2015, 15:17

I have been following Dr Brimah and my sole aim and goal is to expose his lies and intellectual fraud being used to hoodwink the masses to sustain the British legacy of black servitude.

In Dr Brimah’s recent chronicle of lies and misinformation, he had dried to start the story from where he thinks it favours him. Let us carefully but diligently expose the lies in Dr Brimah’s last article titled Explaining miscreants and how Biafra was defeated a second time.

In the said article Mr Brimah stated that he was writing to intellectually explain how Jim Jones cultists are indeed miscreants by the best definition. Frustrated of Nigeria's record like the rest of us, rather than attaining political control and approaching emancipation via many legal means, they were misled to the Shekau miscreant approach of bad behavior and illegality.

Is it not interesting that Mr Brimah is likening a radio station to his brother Shekau’s approach of bombing innocent men, women and children? Dr Brimah has in his usual tirades tried to drag the name of the more peaceful part of the contraption called Nigeria into his traditional terror syndicate exclusive to the North. Let us quickly remind Dr Brimah of the 1906 Mahdist Satiru Rebellion in northern Nigeria and enjoin him to spend time to see how he can deradicalize his brothers.http://goo.gl/tG0neh The only reason the peaceful region of Biafra is being tarred with the same brush as this writer's violent prone region is simply because of the British decided to punish the pre-colonial Biafra for not accepting their lordship without a fight.

This writer in another half baked lie stated albeit with some air of “419 confidence” that “Biafra has been defeated twice by Nigeria”. This is not only a lie but Dr Brimah’s style of trying to change history. We all know that Biafra existed before the coming of the British and a look at the pre-colonial map of Africa exposes Dr Brimah’s lies http://etc.usf.edu/maps/pages/000/32/32.htm

The map is reproduced below and obtained from the link above. Is Dr. Brimah now saying that Nigeria could have defeated Biafra in 1858 when there was no Nigeria or he has decided to re-write or change the history of Biafra?

The writer went further to stated his warped reasons for a justified fight for self determination claiming that Nnamdi Kanu did not want self determination and was heavily levying Igbos - Nothing can be further than the truth as the same writer went further down to state how he called into the radio station with his lies to tell. One important thing to note is that the British had been at war with Biafra since they landed at the Bight of Biafra and had made every effort to apply divide and rule in the region by using their acidic propaganda of the BBC to ascribe Biafra to Igbos. This childish gimmick is also applied by this writer were he stated that Igbos were being levied heavily.

The writer claimed that Nnamdi Kanu had been a pro-PDP bully and without wasting time to expose the lie here again, let us simply refer to the article about the confab.

1858 Map of Africa retrieved from http://etc.usf.edu/maps/pages/000/32/32.htm

An old  map of Africa shows the the location of Biafra before the British fraudsters landed on the Bight of Biafra for slavery.

Pre-colonial Map of Africa showing Biafra.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had been critical of both Goodluck Jonathan and Nigeria since 2013/2014 as confirmed by this writer as well http://goo.gl/XBmdG9

Another evidence of the writers mischief making efforts is in the place where he talked about the address of Mazi Kanu to the World Igbo congress. Again the writer failed to provide the entire context of the speech and he had explicitly stated that the guns and bullets were for self defence. Does it not beat you imagination, that this writer wants to stay in a union that has never worked, build in anger and frustration by the British following the ekumeku massacre and British losses, the writer seems not to realize that truth and honesty are two things missing in Nigeria and that has remained the bane of our progress.

Inasmuch as this writer tries to make his case for the illusionary one Nigeria, he like his British slave masters have continued in their effort to claim that Biafra is Igbo or try to re-define where they think should be Biafra. While the British have subtly been making efforts to continue enslaving blacks, the North had joined the British without taking time to ask why someone who wants to be in the same country with another will seek to achieve it through lies only.

It is indeed very important to note that Fredrick Lugard who created Nigeria assessed black people as He lacks the power of organization, and is conspicuously deficient in the management and control alike of men or business. He loves the display of power, but fails to realize its responsibility ….he will work hard with a less incentive than most races”

This suggests that the failure of the Nigerian state to be a source of joy and pride to anyone including this writer, can be attributed to those who have been managing it. The suggestion that Mr Nnamdi Kanu is angry that PDP did not win only exposes the narrow mindedness of both the writer and his adherents.

While black Africa has been continuously subjugated by the British, the writer and his group had on all occasions presented themselves as willing tools to be used by the imperialists.

Recall that there was a war between 1967 -1970 which was not only incited by the British and also fought by the British while Nigeria provided them with the excuse. In case you never knew how the British worked with the Northerners to foster slavery - the British imposed an air Land and sea blockade of Biafra, used the propaganda machinery of the BBC to convince and deceive the rest of the world that the starvation was due to famine. While African depots are made to face justice in the Hague like Charles Taylor, the North sides with the British in its subjugation of blacks and helps them to tell the lies to justify it. http://goo.gl/dbd1k2

You may have noticed that this writer has been on the loose since Mazi Kanu was arrested, do you not wonder why the writer has embarked on a journey of demonizing Kanu?

A little look at what Kanu said or was saying shows that they were true and this writer failed to convincingly show anyone where he lied.

If this writer had any element of humanity, shouldn't the Biafra agitation be a time to discuss?A time for reflection?  A time for possible but elusive reconciliation to be considered as historical evidence has shown that the British has been behind all the crisis in Nigeria. It may interest you to know that the war was never discussed but instead became an excuse for the demonization of Igbos by the British and their Nigerian house slaves. In a recent letter to the pro Biafra agitators, the British had as usual claimed to be in support of reconciliation efforts between Nigeria and what was Biafra and we can all but wonder if the issue of Biafra has ever been mentioned let alone reconciliation?

While the British stands solidly behind Northerners out of the British desire to subjugate blacks, one would have wondered why this writer in his love for Nigeria has never agitated for the atrocities of the war to be visited. The British has made every effort to not only re-write the history of Biafra but has used the BBC Hausa service to brainwash the predominantly illiterate North to believe that Biafra only came into existence in 1967. If this writer genuinely loved his one Nigeria, what prevents him from at least saying the truth and thinking more about ways to foster unity? It is on record that the North has not only been a willing tool for the British to subjugate others but also have been the losing partner in their romance with the British serpent,

A region that has been pro-slavery, pro-colonization and pro-poverty has not benefited anything from the British but are always more than willing to kill, maim and destroy just in a bid to satisfy the British slave owners. From the war in 1967 till date, the North has shown visible resentment to the Igbos who have till date never descended on them with mass murder and violence reminiscent of the North and recalling them would fill pages of Newspapers.

If Dr Brimah cannot spend his time to look for ways to advance peaceful co-existence, he should at best be saying the truth at least for posterity as one can only wonder why anyone would want a one united United Nigeria. Between the North and the South without the British serpent, the prospect of peace is there but with the British in the background, threatening and deceiving the North with their make belief phobia for Igbo domination and at the same time phobia for Biafra secession shows that the writer has no real good intentions for his beloved “One Nigeria”.

For the record, this writer has not only been masquerading as working to identify potential terror and has classified the Biafra agitation as a potential terror weapon and as laughable as this is, we make bold to ask the writer why Scotland agitation to secede from the UK is not terror, why Quebec agitation to secede from Canada is not terror but Biafra agitation to secede from Nigeria becomes terror? If this insinuation that agitating for Biafra is wrong is allowed to hold water, black people should then ask themselves why Buhari flew all the way to new york, did not tell the world all the problems we have at home but went to fight for the rights of Palestinians but turns around to arrest those agitating for Biafra in their legitimate home land.

Without the British conquest of Biafra in 1849, what relationship does Biafra have with the Northern protectorate? http://goo.gl/aQbYGf
