 Nigeria Government's Suppression, Disappearing And Summary Execution Of Igbo Youths Is A Discussion Long Overdue

It has become exigent that we keep alerting the world about the inceasant disappearing of the Igbos in the current geographical enclave called Nigeria, and rightfully ask that it be given the deserving attention. Though the Igbos are not Nigerians, but Biafrans, it should not be a crime that they found themselves in Nigeria, owing to the fact that it is not their fault but the fault of the British Supremacists who unjustly amalgamated different standing nations into what they called Nigeria today, without proper consents of the people.

We are making one request to African Union, European Parliament, Amnesty International (European Office not Nigerian), International Human Rights organizations and governments of the international community. Just one request, and I believe that it will go a long way to ending the long time Biafra/Nigeria in differences, which the Nigeria government has taken as opportunity to massacre millions of Biafrans during the Nigerian genocidal war against Biafra in 1967-1970 and has continued to kill Biafrans in millions, hundreds and dozens, thereafter. 

THE REQUEST: Please Send Your Delegates And Unbiased Media Personnels To Nigeria. 

Let them tour all the prisons in Nigeria and meet with the prison inmates, interview them and ask them their tribes, their crimes and when they were arrested. Most of the prisoners in all the prisons of Nigeria today are Igbos, mostly the ones between the age range of 15-55 years old. 98 percent of them are innocent of any crimes, and even the security forces knows that. They have done nothing wrong to warrant their illegal arrests and detention. They did not steal, they did not kill, they did not break any law nor commit any crime known to any law, but they were arrested simply because they are Igbos demanding referendum for the Biafra  nation. If a call for peaceful referendum is seen as a crime in Nigeria, what then shall we call a violent approach for freedom? 

Some of these prisoners have spent not less than 5 years in detention, others 4 years, 3 years, 2 years, 1 year. And some who were just recently arrested, as well have spent months in detention without any hopes of being taken to court some day to try their fates, not to even talk of getting released. Why would they even dream of being taken to court in the first place when they broke no laws nor committed any crime? What would the security forces who arrested them present to the court as their crimes? Absolutely nothing. And that is why they have chosen to unjustly detain them without trials. Even the few that the security forces have tried to take to court and accused of one crime or the other, due to pressures from their families, are still experiencing delayed judgements from their trial courts whereas others to whom Judgements have been made in their favor are still being held in solitary confinement.

The worst is that the Nigerian Department of State Security(DSS) and the army operatives are usually sent to Igboland, arrest Igbo innocent youths and transport them to faraway north, far from the reach of their poor relatives and families. No Hausa nor Yoruba person has ever been arrested and transported to Igboland for detention and trial except the transfer of 47 Boko Haram inmates from the north to Ekwuluobia, Anambra State by president Muhammadu Buhari on June 29th, 2015 which was for the purpose to enabling the terrorists get familiar with the area. And even that, they were later said to have been transferred back to the North after it generated a public outcry from the Igbos. It has always been the Igbos to be transported to the north for all kinds of inhuman torture and possible execution. Why would it be so in a nation that swore to uphold justice and fairness and to protect human lives?

Going by the prove of arresting and disappearance of the Igbos by the Nigeria government security forces, it could be possible that the government uses the body parts of victims for organ trafficking; those they detained for years without any trace by their relatives are secretly butchered and their organs harvested either for ritualistic purposes or signed deals for exportation to buyers outside Nigeria. Many of the Igbo people have been arrested, taken to places known only to God, immediately killed and organs harvested. Our findings had proved that some families and relatives whose loved ones were arrested by the Nigeria DSS and the military could no longer locate them anywhere in Nigeria after thorough search and inquiries.

Can the international community please ask Nigeria government, why were these people arrested in Nigeria but cannot be found anywhere in Nigeria. Where are they?

Nigeria government has suppressed and marginalised the Igbos, and the Nigeria media are the ones helping them out by covering their atrocities in exchange for money. All politicians and non-governmental organizations in Nigeria; the Human Rights Watch,  Amnesty International and others are aware of how Igbo youths are regularly disappear by the Nigerian security forces, but have chosen to be mute. 

Igbos are calling for help from the international community, the world should compel Nigeria government to release the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu who is being held unjustly and illegally against all court orders. Also, release Idara Gold and every other detained Biafrans across Nigeria and equally organize a referendum for Biafrans to decide their fate in the unholy union with Nigeria.
