Don't be deceived or misled.Nevertheless it is better to die for something than for nothing.

I am a foot soldier, a pro Biafra and i believe in justice but will not allow myself to be used. I wouldn't want to see anyone used either. Therefore, be wise in your decision and make the proper choice for many has gone for nothing. My little one asked me about Radio Biafra and i told him all i know about Biafra. Reasons why he should carry the message inward and also reasons why he should look well before he leap.

I have no problem with Radio Biafra, it is my call, it is the voice of the oppressed but to get the message right, hate should be ruled out, we don't have to ridicule others to gain pity or get the message to the right audience. Radio erena is out there doing exactly what Radio Biafra is doing so the Federal Government paying negative attention to this Radio station instead of Boko Haram sends a different message.

The problem we have is not Radio Biafra but Boko Haram. However, those of us consuming the messages from Radio Biafra should tick tack very well because it is not difficult to carry a riffle rather extremely difficult to guard the bullet, the damages done by the bullet from a riffle is irreparable and once the riffle is carried, the sound to shoot is heard and once shooting begin, one side will eventually win and one side will loose then there will be this thing called surrender. Those that surrender aren't the victor.

History is here to stay, i wasn't there in 1967 but history put the events of 1967-1970 into me. I was told horrible tales, the massacre, the hypocrisy and the exile. All i heard was enough to hate others that sabotaged Biafra. In 1989, Liberians were forced to carry riffles then in 1994, a similar thing that happened in Nigeria in 1967 happened in Rwanda. We all observed the events of both Liberia and Rwanda then when it was time to surrender, those that gave orders were booked perhaps the fact that those that gave the order in Nigeria weren't booked gave Radio Biafra the might to call for balance or JUSTICE per se.

Jamming transmission of Radio Biafra is uncalled for because Radio Biafra poses no security risk to any Nation. In USA, there is Black Panther Radio Station which is black oriented just as Radio Biafra is Igbo oriented so we should focus on our common enemy instead of Radio Biafra. However, we also should understand that hating each other will never lead us to anywhere. Those who have not seen the devastation caused by war will always shout war slogans but those who have seen war, seen the atrocities of war, the division caused by war will always try the other side of the coin.

We have had our own share of division in Nigeria and another war will not lead us to peaceful settlement of the differences caused by the first war, no form of violence can bring the desired peace or equality rather more injury would be done to the wound we all nurse. In essence, we have the right to agitate but hating one another will not give life to our agitation. We should not destroy our country, hate one another or preach hate in any form though categorically, in a country like ours, tribes card plays major role but then we should not allow our cultural and tribal differences to be our weakness rather our strength.


Before you think of carrying a riffle, imagine this...
