 Biafra Referendum: Be The Hero From India

By Aguocha Chinwendum

Dear UK Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, how are you doing and your new office? 

By grace, Providence, hard work and fate you found yourself at number 10 Downing Street as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and the fifth conservative leader and Prime Minister in seven years and the second most powerful man in the world. 

By this position you are expected to use your good office both as a prime minister and as a prominent voice in the world to always call and work for justice and deliver equity and fairness across the world to every people no matter the colour and races without discrimination.

Who knows why the Almighty Creator of the whole universe determined that you occupy that position in a time like this in the world, a man from a lineage and of a people that suffered most of the British colonial horror and atrocities?

Now, let me bring to your notice the case of Biafra and the agitation of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. 

Like you, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a Biafran of the Igbo tribe and also a British citizen, he was born in September 1967 few months after the British government under Queen Elizabeth II and Harold Wilson as the prime minister sponsored a genocidal war using the Nigerian military government under General Yakubu Gowon. 

Over three million people died when they bombed majorly civilian populated areas and using air, land and sea blockade to cause the starving to death of over three million women and children. 

The genocidal war ended in 1970 forcing the people of Biafra who left Nigeria to nurse their wounds and injuries in a new country back to Nigeria against their wish.

They lied to our fathers about what they called the 3Rs (Rehabilitation, Reconciliation and Reconstruction) which we never saw to date rather than the 3Rs we have seen deep marginalisation, killings and humiliation in the past fifty years in Nigeria.

Seeing the suffering of his people and the deplorable state of the country called Nigeria which has drifted off into a failed and irredeemable state, considering the high level of corruption, terrorism and tribalism which has eaten deeply into the bones and marrow of Nigeria, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu thought of a better future for his Biafran people who are Republicans and Democrats and majorly of Judeo-Christian and Indigenous traditional worshipers and their unborn generations compared to the feudal and Islamic system of the Hausa and Fulani North and the monarchical system of the Yoruba West as not being compatible as we don't share the same value system and religious beliefs, our best choice is to form a country of our own where people of the same value system can easily co-inhabit freely and peacefully.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his IPOB for over a decade have maintained a peaceful agitation organising peaceful protests and rallies across the globe and calling for a referendum despite unwarranted provocations, killings and imprisonment by the Nigerian security forces.

Last year 2021, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of IPOB travelled to Kenya on a private visit with a British travelling passport and he was kidnapped by the Nigerian security operatives who were trailing him, he was tortured and humiliated and would later extraordinarily renditioned to Nigeria against his wish and has remained locked up in the dungeon of the DSS facilities despite a court order that has discharged him.

The British government failed to protect the rights of their citizen and abandoned him even though the Nigerian government had broken all International laws and treaties as they illegally brought him to Nigeria without going through any extradition proceedings.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB are only asking for a referendum so that the people of Biafra can determine their future in Nigeria just as it was granted to the Scottish people on 18 September 2014 and the June 23, 2016, Brexit referendum to leave the EU.

Mr Prime Minister, you will become the greatest of all if you can re-visit the artificial borders forcefully created by the British, especially in Nigeria which they did without the consultation or knowledge of the Indigenous People but only considered their selfish economic gains, you can be the apology, reconciliation and reparation the Biafran people have long waited from the British government for decades. 

The people of Biafra are calling for a referendum and we look up to you as a man whose race (India) suffered with us in the hands of the colonial British people.

Lend your voice to freedom and Be the hero of the world.
