As mischievous people of Nigeria have continued to blackmail Biafrans in general and IPOB in particular that should Biafrans insisted that they must exit the defunct Nigeria federation, that they are going to loose Igbo investments scattered all over Nigeria. It is important to make these mischievous Nigerians to know that those Igbo investments in Northern and Western Nigeria do not in anywhere go close to the worths and values of the lives of Biafrans already gruesomely massacred by Gen Muhammadu Buhari government alone on the road to Biafra restoration from August 2015 to January 2017. It is worthy of note that since 1967, Biafrans have lost over 4 Million Biafrans due to the struggle for Biafra restoration.
It is important to make those mischievous Nigerians to understand that it is total mockery to the souls of Biafrans who has paid the supreme sacrifice by laying down their lives for Biafra restoration, for anybody to merely make mention of investments of Igbos in the North as a cheap blackmail to be used to disuade Biafrans in their unmatchable quest for Biafra restoration. In as much as there are international conventions and protocols to be activated which will protect Biafrans' investments and properties in any part of Nigeria, it is important to make those mischievous Nigerians to know that no amount of Igbo investments or properties in the world is more valued than the lives of Biafrans massacred in different places like:
#FreeNnamdiKanu protests in Mbiama Bayelsa State, Onitsha in Anambra, Enugu in Enugu state, Aba in Abia state, Asaba in Delta state and Port Harcourt in Rivers state.
It is important to ask mischievous Nigerians a question like this "Having lost these precious lives on the road to restore Biafra, what quantity of investments or properties of Igbos can be compared to these precious lives that it will become a blackmail on the determination of our people towards the restoration of Biafra? It is only in Northern Nigeria that the lives of cows are valued more than human life but in Biafraland no quantity of investment or property worth the life of a single Biafran. We value lives more than properties and investments and Biafra restoration is only the life our generations unborn. How I wish that the confiscation of all the Igbo properties and investments in the Northern Nigeria could become a ransom to be paid for all our brothers and sisters that have gone down in gruesome massacres to be resurrected and witness Biafra restoration with us the living Biafrans soonest when Biafra will be restored. It is important to ask the mischievous Nigerians a question like "between the persons who have lost their lives already for Biafra and persons who is about to loose their investments should they fail to relocate them to Biafraland before expiration of the Arewa youths ultimatum, who paid bigger sacrifice for Biafra"?
Let nobody blackmail us with our wealth because their fathers confiscated our fathers' investments and properties in Northern and Western Nigeria and tagged them "Abandoned properties" in 1970 because Biafrans where defeated in genocidal war. IPOB has made it clear that Biafrans of this generation are ready to loose anything to restore Biafra including their lives. Igbo properties in Northern Nigeria is too small to what Biafrans are ready to loose if that become the price to be paid in restoring Biafra as our slogan still remain "BIAFRA OR DEATH". It is better to die for Biafra than to live for Nigeria. I rest my case!
