Since the death of OJUKWU in 2011, the world have
waited for a new genuine leader of Biafra, despite
some dubious elements that has been
masquerading as freedom fighters until a voice was
heard on the moribund Radio Biafra that has been
on dead silence since the end of the war. This time
around, it was no longer the voice of Okon Ndem,
the anchor of Radio Biafra during the war, lambasting Gowon and his genocidal army, nor that
of Gen Phillip Effiong surrendering to the Nigerian armed forces, Rather, a loud, Fearless and commanding voice, roaring from London. I am Nnamdi Kanu, the Voice would say, the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra.
I remember his broadcast, after the Biafra Hero’s remembrance day of 2015 which caught the attention of the world, he was indeed showcasing his leadership of Biafrans by the unalloyed support he got from Biafrans in diaspora. In his words, “we are all over the world today remembering our fallen Heroes and I lead them all” No doubt, Nnamdi kanu emerged as the New Leader of Biafra after the death of Ojukwu in 2011.
But does the world recognise him as the new Leader of Biafra? Since the end of the civil war, OJUKWU has remained the only recognized leader of Biafra all over the world despite his foray into Nigerian politics until his death in 2011. Which paved way for the rise of a Joshua, in the person of Nnamdi Kanu. That will lead Biafrans into the promise Land.
But who could this man be? Some people asked,
as he continued to vow with his life everyday on Radio Biafra.
In his words, “We have sworn an Oath to to restore Biafra, it is better for this earth not to exist than for Biafra not to be restored, the death of over 3.5 million Biafrans, women and children, killed by the Nigerian State will never be for nothing, it is for them and for everything we hold
dear that we must continue to fight,until Biafra is restored”.
Can we take this man serious Biafrans asked? Don’t mind him, He is a jobless man, looking for cheap popularity some people say, No!, he is another fraud, plotting to dupe innocent Biafrans, others say. We have seen his kind before.
No, Nigerians said, he is only a hate preacher, and a Terrorist. But the voice continued, it is either the Flag of Biafra is raised up, or I am lowered into the grave!, It is either Biafra or death!. Hmmm, his message was very powerful that it began to sink, and many Biafrans began to gather around their Radio everyday to listen to him, but his detractors are desperate, they needed to Stop him by all means. They tried jamming his radio signals and failed Therefore they orchestrated another lie in other to trap him and possibly kill him.
That man is coward they said, he is hiding Behind his microphone in the comfort of his house in London and inciting people to the streets. Let him come back home and lead from the front for us to take him serious.
BUT THE VOICE IS ALSO A PROPHET,
HE KNEW WHAT AWAITS HIM IF HE DARE STEPS
INTO THE COUNTRY, HE KNEW THAT THEY HAVE
ALREADY PLANNED TO DEAL WITH HIM AND ITS
GOING TO BE TOUGH, HOWEVER ITS GOING TO BE
HIS BAPTISM, HIS BAPTISM OF FIRE. DURING
WHICH HE WILL BE PROCLAIMED TO THE WORLD
BY THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT THAT HE IS THE
NEW UNDISPUTABLE LEADER OF BIAFRA! AND THE
WORLD WILL LISTEN TO HIM.
Including the self serving Biafran politicians and the so called elites that have belittled and disregarded him.
Finally the Messiah came as he said and went through a Baptism of Fire in hands of the Murderous Nigerian DSS.
They could have taken his life in their Dungeon, but Chukwu Okike Abiama said that his life is not theirs to take. Biafrans all over the world, marched in solidarity with him, Proclaiming him their leader, and demanding for his release but his captors will not free him, rather they massacred more Biafrans in an attempt to silence them but their Leader, endured it all, until he was officially proclaimed by the Nigerian court, that he is indeed the New leader of Biafra and is truly determined to Restore Biafra. Now the world will hear his voice and listen, he will knock on their doors and it will be opened, He will ask and it shall be given to him, as the new leader of Biafra because The Nigerian government has purified him
in the fire and told the world that he is Genuine and real.
Now even the self serving politicians seeks to
hear him, because he is no longer a fraud nor insane as they called him, rather a real freedom
fighter that has been chosen by God to restore Biafra, having been Passed through fire, and he
came out undeterred.
