 IPOB "Ghost Town" Protest And The Blackmail Of The Nigerian Media

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has in her show of civility, maintained her clear stance on the rule of law and civil disobedience. Biafra citizens have shown to the world, their willingness to exit this British contraption called Nigeria. Nothing has changed the will of the people on the subject of the Biafran project. It has definitely become part of our life. Our sacrifices, our agenda and our collective interest have so definitively, pointed to one indisputable fact, which is the restoration of our God-given Nation, Biafra. It has come to a point where every media of the world especially the Nigerian media must acknowledge the fact that the Indigenous Biafran citizens are not a group but a people, indigenous to the land. This principled statement remains a fact which can be viewed across the length and breath of the world as only this specie of humans have engaged in peaceful protests across communities even internationally, in the demand of the CIVIL RIGHTS of REFERENDUM and FREEDOM of her CITIZENS.

The Sun News Media, amongst others in Nigeria which today has decided to issue a statement of blackmail against the collective interest of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on the "Sit-at-Home" protest declared for Mondays in a process tagged "GHOST TOWN", is disgustingly shameful. The "GHOST TOWN" directive is a collective show of a people's agreement to drive home their desire to defend their land of inheritance, Biafra. The Nigerian News Media cannot and will never be the mouthpiece of Biafrans because they have long lost the right to protect the genuine humanitarian voice of reason.

There is no going back on the "Sit-At-Home" order which is slated for every Monday, beginning from the 9th day of August 2021, for as long as the Nigerian government decides to play the ostrich and deprive the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, his unconditional release from incarceration. No stone will be left unturned most assuredly, for both his freedom and that of the Biafran people. The IPOB leadership has not changed and no one except this leadership can offer a counter directive of the activities of the movement. Discipline and sanity have been the modus operandi. Any information that is not coming from the leadership has definitely no legitimacy.

And anyone therefore, talking about the disenfranchisement of Biafrans towards education because of the civil disobedience which the people have already engaged in, is yet to come to terms with reality. Biafrans, since after the war of extermination between 1967-1970, have experienced a constant backlash towards their right to adequate education because of the unfruitful Nigerian quota system aimed at accommodating the lame and marauding Fulani controlled region. It has been a show of ethnic deprivation centered around a psychological path, well crafted for the destruction of the educational growth and influence of sustainable development within and around the youths of Biafraland. On what grounds then, is the benefit of the Nigerian education when it's university degrees cannot guarantee a good life after graduation? A country where you need only a National Examination Council (NECO) certificate to attain the highest office of the land but cannot work in a government ministry without the National Youth Service Corp, NYSC.

The Nigerian education system is nothing to write home about and the people of Biafra have no wish to continue with such form of educational decadence which has all along been the hallmark of Nigeria's growth. Biafrans therefore ask the Nigerian media to toe the path of integrity and avoid this shrouded media propaganda which has obviously thrown Nigeria into the state of pandemonium. The

media should be the voice of the voiceless and not the ladder of the oppressors. Our demand is simple: release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, unconditionally, for he has committed no crime known to humanity. The "GHOST TOWN" civil disobedience will continue unabated until all demands are met including a date for Referendum.
