PETITION: The Gross Violation Of Biafrans' Rights Against The Universal Declaration Of Human Rights, Reason The United Nations Should Prevail On Nigeria 

We humbly tender this petition that the essence of this assembly which has protected human rights without boundaries since 1945 may intervene on a part of Biafra that has endured extinction, and again at the verge of renewed extinction for anchoring on your esteemed 2007 DECLARATION ON THE RIGHTS OF INDIGEONOUS PEOPLE TO SELF-DETERMINATION, and of which her leader's rights have grossly been violated. 

Biafra possesses no threat to human nature, humanity and human rights. The Nation, Biafra was made species of terror since 1914, Biafra had endured pogroms before the war of 1967 genocide against them that was called BIAFRA VS NIGERIA WAR. It is crucial to bring to your notice that over 3.5million civilian Biafrans lost their lives whilst one-third of 30,000 of her soldiers lost their lives.

Up till date, lots of Biafrans are scattered all over the country called Nigeria and countries of the world due to marginalization without measure, but we take particular notice of Biafrans in Nigeria. The sectional terror group called Boko Haram terrorizes Christians, and by virtue of the 1914 amalgamation of Muhammedian emirates of the North and Christians dominated South, 

Christianity suffer terror and are soft targets. 

In 1967, Biafrans declared their independence as a nation, following the failure of an accord that could have guaranteed a peaceful Nigeria(Aburi Accord), but were again re-annexed after a brutal genocide on them, that was adorned with conspiracy of silence from the World. Within three years of the war; by virtue of war crimes, Biafrans lost over 3.5million lives as a result of land, sea and air blockade; whilst children perished by starvation, women, civilian men and refugee camps were the target objective of Nigerian soldiers.

Annihilated, Biafrans were subjected to slave's conditions, marginalized and left under perpetual harsh economic and governmental policies, even while the resource that sustains the economy of entire country(Nigeria) belongs to them.  All effort are to hamper Biafrans' development, subjugate and leave them out of trend in order to continually enslave, exploit and keep them down, as their rise might resurgence independent state.  Investigations have it that nothing at all has been addressed in their land and with immemorial absence of federal government presence in Biafraland nor observed as its federating unit.

This honorable world assembly, UNITED NATIONS in 2007 launched- THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF THE RIGHTS OF INDIGEONOUS PEOPLE. However, this right gave legal backing to all activities of Indigenous People. Biafrans tapped into this groundbreaking declaration to seek their Nation's independence within the ambit of this law proclaimed by UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN 2007.

In 2012, IPOB was established by Nnamdi Kanu to pursue the self-determination of the people of Biafra, as proclaimed by UNITED NATIONS. In 2015 IPOB was duly represented in the world convention of indigenous peoples. Afterwards, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was officially certified the leader of IPOB.

In keeping with the law, Radio Biafra was established in substitution of armament; for sensitization, debates and propagation of the Biafran course, a sanctuary of freedom of speech and a banner of truth.  Radio Biafra became Biafrans' voice and through the platform, our plight is communicated and reason for our independence also to the world at large.

In June 2021, the leader of IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was Kidnapped in Kenya by the Nigerian Secret Police, in collaboration with their Kenyan counterparts. Kanu was tortured, extraordinarily renditioned to Nigeria and detained in the facility of Nigerian Department of State Security(DSS). 

Courts of competent jurisdiction, including the United Nations Human Rights Council Working Group on Arbitrary Detention have ordered for Kanu’s unconditional release and compensation over the violation on his fundamental rights. Notwithstanding, Nigeria government executives and DSS have blatantly ignored the orders. Subsequently, Nnamdi Kanu has remained agonisingly incarcerated and subjected to degrading treatments. Let it be also recalled that as a matter of fact, the Appellate Court of Nigeria in Abuja, clearly pronounced Nnamdi Kanu discharged and acquitted. But, against this declaration, Nnamdi Kanu is yet being held in DSS detention facility. 

Therefore, it is expedient here to cite THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHT AS PROCLAIMED BY THIS ESTEEMED ASSEMBLY(UN) in Paris, on 10th December 1984. We shall as well remind this admired assembly that they swore to see this declaration universally protected.

This resolution '217-A part' states as follows:

Article 4= No one shall be held in slavery or servitude, slaves and the slave trade shall be prohibited in their forms. 

Article5= No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. 

Article6= All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law.

Article7= All are entitled to the equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination. 

In view of this and forthwith over the Nigerian President, Buhari's unethical confrontation on Biafrans and IPOB leader, let the Nigerian Presidency be compelled to obey Court and UN Working Group’s orders, mandated to free Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and other hundreds of illegally detained Biafrans in several Nigerian detention facilities. Biafrans have committed no crime by agitating for their right to self-determination. The UN should conduct a referendum for Biafrans as a way to arrest the further spilling of more innocent Biafran blood.
