Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a British citizen and there is no way he can be arrested without Britain executing the arrest themselves. So it was Britain that handed the IPOB leader to Nigeria Government.
Nigeria is just like a farm to Britain. And everything in this farm, including humans are manures. They worth nothing and they are all expendable. To keep Nigeria One and under the control of the FULANI is a task that must be fulfilled. With the Fulani, Britain is still in power.
Britain doesn't just hate the Igbo man, they fear an Igbo man. The Igbo man can't be in charge and let Britain drill unaccounted oil. They can't sit and watch them pollute our lands and get away with it. An Igbo man can compete with any white man anywhere and in any discipline. When I say an Igbo man, I also mean the Ijaw, Efik, Ogoni and Ibibio. In these aspect, I call them all those that suffered during the pogrom of 1966 in Northern Nigeria Igbo people.
Mazi Nnamdi Kanu played a fast one on Britain to have gotten British citizenship, before he started trying to liberate the Biafrans. And the liberation of Biafra is like capsizing the boat of the British people. Nigeria is their oil mill.
There hope of survival. Do you know what Britain have done to keep Nigeria One for their own benefit and that of the few ruling Class? Britain have committed atrocities for Nigeria to remain one. Britain have turned victims into villains and villains into victims. Britain have lied to the world. Britain have supplied weapons that killed millions and supporting the starvation of more than 2 million Biafrans. These are the lengths Britain has gone in making sure Nigeria remains one. Coup upon coups have been sponsored by them.
So what is there in handing over their own citizen to Nigeria Government? If this is what it takes to save One Nigeria. If this is what it takes to keep the Igbo man down,so be it.
But they misfired. I repeat, they completely misfired. I wonder who is advising these people. When they arrested Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in 2016, I told you they misfired. Today again, I am telling you the same thing.
When I write, some people think I am relating some things planned on a round table meeting, but that's not true. I write from intuition,
and what I am going to put down here today will be seen as very unpopular. Some won't believe it and some will say he has come again, but within time, you will see it all start happening. Unfortunately, I don't see them releasing him soon. They might be putting him away for good until they realize their mistakes.
There is rejoicing in Nigeria today. The top government officials are happy. Members of the Fulani oligarchy are happy. South East and South South Governors are happy. Politicians are happy and ndị Efulefu too are in festive mood. But the common man, the poor, the peasants, those battered by Nigeria, the villagers whose villages are under attack and about being taken by the government sponsored Fulani herdsmen. The farmers and the rest of the downtrodden are all sad. Those of them Mazi Nnamdi Kanu represent are dejected and fallen. Their only hope has been taken. Those that are today happy are blind to the future.
But if I am the Eastern politicians I will be worried. In fact, I will be getting my travel documents ready for immediate departure. This will not end well. Taking Nnamdi Kanu away will stop nothing, rather it will escalate things. Every Philosopher, every man of logic knows this. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is only but a face. You might think that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is mean, but you never know that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is kindhearted compare to many people under him. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is the face of the Biafra struggle, but their are more than 50 million other faces. Faceless faces you might not know.
Do you know why South African whites released Nelson Mandela? They released him as to use him to save themselves. The blacks have been battered. They went to exile. Got weapons, trained in war and gradually they started returning. They are now ready to take over their father land from the invaders that took it and made them slaves in their own land. They are ready to do it or die trying. The white noticed how determined they are and had no option than to save themselves through Nelson Mandela. They had to release the one they called a terrorist, made him a hero and from there he became the president. In return, Nelson asked his people to lay down their weapons and embrace peace. In tears they obeyed. The case of Nigeria and Biafra will be a different story.
I see them begging MNK in future to come and speak to his people and yet I see MNK looking the other way.
What I am seeing is not just good. I see the arrest of MNK causing the greatest unrest. I see the youths getting uncontrollable. I see every political gathering cease in the East. I see Eastern politicians on the run. I see many on exile. I see some starting to speak up, but unfortunately it has become too late. I see total break down of law and order.
I see the East uniting the more. I see Ijaw youths and others standing with and for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. I see the end to One Nigeria becoming more glaring.
You might be sad, you might be weak, but things like this happen for another to happen.
When all the boxes of evil starts opening, there will be no Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to blame. You will all be saying, but when Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was there, non of this was happening. Take a look at Ambazonia. Their leader is in solitary confinement, yet his people are still fighting.
I don't see these generation of Biafrans backing down. Again, Britain and Nigeria misfired.
Let me end it here.
