The sun cries

Updated on February 13, 2010


Nigeria,a country i love and cherish got her independence from the British on the 1st of October 1960.Nigeria is blessed with over 250 ethnic groups and ranks in population of over 150million with Muslim and Christian as the major religious group.

Nigeria is made up of four quarters, the North, South, East and West and the oil which is its major source of income is deposited in the Southern part of the country. Among the Nigeria First elites and founding fathers were.

1.Tafawa Balewa-Northern Elite and first prime minister of Nigeria.

2.Dr, Nnamdi Azikiwe-Eastern Elite and first president of Nigeria.

3.Dr. Obafemi Awolowo-Western Elite and first premier of Nigeria.


The change in Nigeria began in 1966

Due to immense marginalization of the other parts of the Country by the Northerners, a group of military personals mainly from the East led a coup and toppled the government, so many Northern elites were killed including the Prime Minister and this coup gave birth to a counter coup same year by a group of Northern soldiers.

The events that followed these coups led to the birth of Biafra in 1967.


Now, therefore, I, Lieutenant-Colonel Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Military Governor of Eastern Nigeria, by virtue of the authority, and pursuant to the principles, recited above, do hereby solemnly proclaim that the territory and region known as and called Eastern Nigeria together with her continental shelf and territorial waters shall henceforth be an independent sovereign state of the name and title of "The Republic of Biafra".

The North refused to accept the declaration of Biafra and this led to a meeting in Aburi Ghana where an accord was signed by both Nigeria,Biafra and the international community but at a later stage, the Nigerian Northern entities withdrew from the accord and declared war.

The Biafrans were powerless and mainly Christians but they decided to protect their land against the northern invaders.The sun cried and cried until there were no more tears.

The land was soiled with Innocent blood of helpless and powerless men,women and children. And uptil today the sun cries on a daily basis.

The sun cries


The events of the war and the no victor no vanquish conclusion, the present and continuous marginalization of the Easterners and Southerners gave birth to the agitation for a peaceful independence of the people of Biafra from Nigeria.

The birth of MASSOB.(MOVEMENT FOR THE ACTUALIZATION OF THE SOVEREIGN STATE OF BIAFRA) is caused because of the continuous ill treatment of the Biafra people.The sun cries

All we need is freedom

It is all we need cries the sun

The Yellow sun

The bite of Biafra.

All hail Biafra.


Land of the rising sun, we love and cherish,
Beloved homeland of our brave heroes;
We must defend our lives or we shall perish,
We shall protect our hearts from all our foes;
But if the price is death for all we hold dear,
Then let us die without a shred of fear.

Hail to Biafra, consecrated nation,
Oh fatherland, this be our solemn pledge:
Defending thee shall be a dedication,
Spilling our blood we’ll count a privilege;
The waving standard which emboldens the free
Shall always be our flag of liberty.

We shall emerge triumphant from this ordeal,
And through the crucible unscathed we’ll pass;
When we are poised the wounds of battle to heal,
We shall remember those who died in mass;
Then shall our trumpets peal the glorious song
Of victory we scored o’er might and wrong.

Oh God, protect us from the hidden pitfall,
Guide all our movements lest we go astray;
Give us the strength to heed the humanist call:
‘To give and not to count the cost" each day;
Bless those who rule to serve with resoluteness,
To make this clime a land of righteousness.

And the birth of MEND (MOVEMENT FOR THE EMANCIPATION OF THE NIGER DELTA) was equally caused by the same cry and the sun cries

You cannot come to my house

And steal my lot then term me

The thief,you are the real big thief

You fat belly sitting on the rock

But we will cut you down with our

Little axe.

Either Ibos of Africa cosmic micro wave nature made idol universal figure glorious spiritual head being host body of human race complex building heart center temple house body of manhood image of invisible pillar foundation of truth was and is symbol seal mark of atmospheric beast Alien creature of God like image of host or else an illusion of something worse than western deception image of church age "WHITE SON OF GOD CHRIST LIKE IMAGE CROSS" . You can reject the Ibos of Africa glorious spiritual head being cosmic micro wave nature made idol universal figure host body of knowledge in one language order compliant for a fool creative spirit mind, you can disregard it as an "IDOL" or you can fall at it's coil grid harmonic form of power in air form central core fluid intelligent support system atmosphere and claims its ring of engagement seal symbol identity .

      The powerlessness of the meek in the face of the powerful is an old story that repeats itself over and over and hurts us all every time. Peace to you, Rossimobis.

      Excellent but reagicv hub, so much suffering in this world, I admire your taking a stand..... and I will leave you with my ..............

      Food for thought

      ©-MFB III

      At days end

      on Monday vanquished

      I sit so comfortably ensconced

      in my plush, scotch-guard recliner

      munching chocolate-covered cashews

      washed down with a frosty cola

      connected only by remote

      then suddenly the cameras pan down

      to a startling revelation

      telivised in living color

      humbling all the guilty masses


      In a dusty, dirt floored hovel

      lies a tiny, bloated baby

      sunken eyes, and cheeks like craters

      starving in the Biafra village

      its haunting gaze, in years that number

      far more grief then my life's tallied

      like an ancient shriveled prophet

      on its face...etched tales of doom


      Who decided I'd be snacking

      during early time

      on some useless extra calories

      mixed with sugared carbonation

      all just for the sake of boredom

      while this precious little infant

      is denied the slightest tidbit

      of the nourishment that's needed

      to sustain its fragile life


      and much earlier this evening

      while I stood and scraped my dishes

      clean...of quite a healthy portion

      of fresh meat, corn and potatoes

      my eyes much bigger then my stomach

      it's what I would call leftovers

      just more fuel to feed the maggots

      in a dump full of nutrition

      that lies just south of the city

      plus in every house around me

      plates are scraped, and food goes wasted

      times one hundred...times ten thousand

      every day a fact of life


      While in some far third world country

      they stack babies up like dishes

      victims of some great starvations

      scraped of all their life, leftovers

      just more fuel to feed the maggots

      in a flesh pile of attrition

      that lies just south of the mass grave

      that will cradle their frail bodies


      Who decides upon the menu's

      for the chubby worms, and maggots?

      Is it God? or is it humans?

      who allows the gluts and famines

      to remain each day unbalanced?

      sacrificing skinny babies

      as we fill up bags called "Hefties"

      with excesses that could save

      all those who fill an early grave


      "Land of the Feed!"

      What's for dessert?....

      "Home of the Crave."

      That is why i sometimes ask "Where is thy face o Lord"

      Why will the flesh of an infant be torn into pieces by a bomb?

      Why will the little innocent heart feel the pains of the bullet?

      Why will a man stab a one month old to death?

      Children are the future but let it be.

      Poor little babies. It hurts to see their suffering.

      It is always the children who suffer the most.

      We say "One Day..." with our mouth, but do we say it with our heart?! We must. We simply must!
