The Non-Negotiable Demand for the Sovereign State Of Biafra

My attention has been drawn to an interview granted by one Sen.Girei Abubaka Halilu former senator representing Adamawa Central Senatorial Zone from 1999 - 2003 as asking if the Igbo people want Biafra sovereign nation or Nigerian presidency?
I want to start by correcting the honourable senator that Biafra is not an Igbo affair and can never be pigeonholed to represent only the Igbos. I also wish to unequivocally assert that the Biafra we are fighting for includes all the Biafran territories which surpasses Igbo. It is rather hypocritical, and of shameless pretense for a man of his caliber to ask such a question in a desperate move to ridicule our efforts towards restoring our nation as a people. But before I continue let me quickly remind this "born to rule" illiterate and uniformed Hausa slave master ordained by the British by bringing to his attention and consciousness some facts that are glaring which he has allowed hatred to saturate and eject his sense of reasoning, comprehension and judgments;
Is Mr. Senator feigning ignorance of the Biafra question which has not been addressed by the Nigerian state since after the civil war of aggression championed and supported by Nigeria-British and other world powers? Is this "born to rule" imbecile unaware of the grave injustices being meted on the people of the Eastern region by the murderous Nigerian government ranging from political disenfranchisement, economic strangulation and infrastructural denials? Maybe I should also remind this dishonorable fellow in case he did not quite follow that the Nigerian government in conjunction with their murderous Military wing has committed the most atrocious crime ever known to humanity in this recent time by killing, maiming and murdering innocent citizens (Biafrans ) on a daily bases who has taken it upon themselves to come out on the streets for peaceful protests and rallies. We are not also leaving behind or ignoring the fact that some of these innocent citizens have been unlawfully and illegally detained /incarcerated without any justifiable reason. Mr. Senator sir, it seems you have been flying in the air like your living death president that you don't really know who the leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra is or what he stands for. Nnamdi Kanu the indefatigable and impregnable leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra has been illegally detained by the murderous Nigerian government through their DSS since October 2015 and despite all the torture, humiliation and abuses being rained on him on a daily bases he is still standing tall with his shoulders high defending, championing and spearheading the course for Biafra restoration.
According to this dishonourable senator " Igbos have businesses and own houses everywhere" all over the contraption called Nigeria. I don't know if this man Is well informed to know about the 2007 United Union charter of the right of the Indigenous People for self-determination which Nigeria as a member nation is signatory to; or he might be one of those "alimajiris" that has refused Western education and called it "haram". Mr. uneducated senator, days are gone when you people from Hausa-Fulani enclave always intimidate us with living and having properties all over the"zoo"(Nigeria). Nnamdi Kanu has done a great deal by awakening the youths and inculcating in them the need to face you uneducated e-rats and chase you into oblivion. He (Nnamdi Kanu ) has also liberated and emancipated the Biafran youth from the long-aged mental slavery and opened our mind to challenge evil where ever we see them without fear or favour. In case we are forgetting something, I think its pertinent to note and to tell all Biafrans resident in other parts of Nigeria that as long as Biafra become a sovereign nation all our properties outside Biafra Land remains protected. We should all ignore this uneducated senator because Biafra is non-negotiable.
Before surrendering my pen I want to outrightly tell the dishonourable senator that the Igbos as well as other clans in Biafra want BIAFRA. Any attempt to deny the people of the old Eastern region the right to be addressed or known as Biafra or even restore their stolen identity and dignity will be resisted because it amounts to denying us the very essence of our existence. What we want is total emancipation of all Biafra territories. According to reports filtered from the recent ECOWAS pronouncement; Nnamdi Kanu (Biafra) and Nigeria are all members of ECOWAS. Even the Nigerian court presided by Justice Binta Nyako was quoted as said" IPOB " is not an unlawful society. So senator retract your comment and stand so as to shame the devil.
