Although we fairly perceive the pains and opposed results of this selection on our folks, we’re compelled to take it to realize a greater objective within the collective curiosity of Biafrans. We have taken time to analyse what transpired on October 21 when our Leader was arraigned in courtroom and found that the federal authorities shouldn’t be honest and solely desires to humiliate him and hold him perpetually in DSS custody to rot there.
We all noticed how legal professionals, journalists, Igbo delegates and revered conventional rulers and different individuals who got here from all world wide to witness his courtroom case had been restricted and denied entry into the courtroom premises by safety brokers who saved them outdoors below the scorching warmth of the solar. What a humiliation and wickedness!
We can not settle for that anymore. We can by no means enable our chief onyendu Mazi Nnamdi KANU to be tried SECRETLY and we will by no means additionally enable him to be tried below SHARIA legislation below any guise. NIGERIA should comply with International legal guidelines in dealing with our chief.
Mazi Nnamdi KANU is in DSS dungeon as we speak due to his ardour for Biafra independence, and we should sacrifice all we will to make sure that he regains his freedom. He has sacrificed a lot for us all, so we should be ready to sacrifice little for him.
Unless the federal authorities releases him unconditionally earlier than November 4, we will sacrifice one week for him as a warning protest to convey to our oppressors that Nnamdi Kanu represents over 70 million Biafrans.
He is harmless of all the fees most popular towards him. As lengthy as he’s in detention our particular person companies don’t matter a lot as a result of he’s struggling for us all and we will’t abandon him.
We significantly remorse the inconveniences this may increasingly trigger our folks however it’s a essential sacrifice we have to make till now we have our full independence. Nobody resident in Biafra land is anticipated to flout this directive as doing so quantities to difficult the need of the folks on the Biafra undertaking.
This one week sit-at-home can be to let our oppressors perceive that we aren’t going to tolerate any plan to torment or abandon our chief in DSS custody by means of frivolous courtroom adjournments. Any plans to topic him to trauma in detention by means of lengthy adjournments whereas actual terrotists and mass murderers are having enjoyable throughout the nation can not fly.
Nnamdi Kanu should be freed as a result of he commited no crime. Asking for referendum in order that Biafrans will determine whether or not or not they wish to proceed as a part of Nigeria is not any crime. He mustn’t endure for in search of justice for his folks.
We have been enslaved and caged sufficient by the Fulani managed federal authorities of Nigeria and its allies. If we shut down Biafra land only for one week to safe our everlasting freedom, it’s well worth the sacrifice. Everybody ought to brace up for this sacrifice.
This is the time all Biafrans should stay united. Let’s not give the oppressors and their brokers any room to create division in our mist.”
