The separation of Biafra and Nigeria

13 August 2013, 13:40 Onyeji Dominic

The entire world knows that the written scripts of Britain are no longer valid in Nigeria. Britain and US have no more given it their support.

Everybody knows that British authority is no longer binding on us. Nigerians are now left to take decisions within themselves. It is now left for us to either renew the amalgamation or secede. Full stop!

I am of the opinion that Northerners will not let Nigeria divide just like that. Biafra is captivated. There is a stronghold. This is what many of us don't know because we don't seem to be insightful and wise.

Every wise fellow knows that no man can break into a strongman's house without possessing stronger power or force. You cannot defeat me if you're not stronger than me. It is not done!

Biafrans seem to be powerless now due to disunity. Everybody knows that God is power, and truth remains that there is no God or god among people when they are divided. No matter how we try, Biafra cannot be liberated without liberator. So, what is a liberator? Where is our savior?

One bad thing about Igbos is that we are not wise travelers. We are well exposed. There is no part of the world where there is no great number of Biafrans. We travel a lot. Yes! Igbos are great travelers. Everybody knows it. But let me ask one or two questions.

I am sure that Igbos (the Biafrans) know what travel is. What do we understand about tourism and development? I mean how do we blend the two for good? I ask these because Igbos don't seem to know what it means to be a stranger in foreign land.

Everybody knows that home is home, and the purpose of traveling is to get oneself exposed for benefit and development of one’s home or environment. We travel in order to gain new ideas for creation of wealth to develop or improve our lives and homes.

The main question here is how many Igbos are living like strangers and real travelers? I mean how many Igbo travelers are developing their father's land or homes? We're very good and lucrative in foreign lands. We help to develop foreign lands while our father's land (home) are lying waste. Why?

Biafrans are dying as preys or victims to terrorism in Nigeria lately. Militants of Boko Haram together with other northern forces in Nigeria are killing the Igbos in their lands. We read it newspapers and watch it on television almost on a daily base.

Why won't Igbos be killed when they are not living like strangers in foreign land? Why are Igbos planting "flowers" in strange lands? Truth is that the "flowers" they planted are so beautiful and attractive to the landlords. So, they have to kill them in order to possess or take over the flowers. This is true saying! If you put sugar in man's mouth, won't he lick it?

I will not actually say that Biafrans are powerless like that. I know that I am seeing as an insightful Sage. Truth is that heaven has chosen us to split Nigeria. Amalgamation is over because Biafra is a free moral entity. Nobody among Biafrans is interested in One-Nigeria.

We cannot be forced to do against our will or choice because we are not slaves both in Nigeria and in God. Igbos and Biafrans at large had never been interested in sharing anything in common with Nigerians. Both countries are cat and dog.

Britain knew that Igbos and Hausas can never be friendly. They created Nigeria purely for their own economic benefit, not for the benefit of Nigeria. Everybody knows that this is true. The yoke of amalgamation is broken. Biafrans are leaving Nigeria for real. If Northerners like let them go to hell! We shall face them squarely. God is not sleeping!
