BIAFRA IS A METAPHOR FOR IGBO MARGINALIZATION/MALTREATMENT/MURDER (MMM)

What the Igbos are experiencing in Nigeria is maltreatment and murder and not marginalization. Marginalization sounds innocuous but maltreatment and murder are what the Igbos are experiencing in Nigeria.

1. When mobs are organized to kill, maim, rape, and disembowel Igbos living in Nigeria, is it marginalization, maltreatment, or murder?
2. When Igbos are killed because a Danish cartoonist depicts Prophet Mohammed in a cartoon, is it marginalization, maltreatment, or murder?
3. When Igbos are killed and their property burned because Muhammadu Buhari lost to Goodluck Jonathan, a non-Igbo, is it marginalization, maltreatment, or murder?
4. When Igbo imported goods are seized and sold to non-Igbos at giveaway prices, is it marginalization, maltreatment, or murder?
5. When Federal Roads in Igbo-speaking parts of Nigeria are the worst on the African continent, is it marginalization, maltreatment, or murder?
6. When Igbos, who are highly educated and qualified, are denied Federal appointments, is it marginalization, maltreatment, or murder?
7. When Igbo importers are denied licenses to import essential commodities, is it marginalization, maltreatment, or murder?
8. When Igbos protest these injustices peacefully, and are gunned down by Nigerian security agents, is it marginalization, maltreatment, or murder?
9. When Nnamdi Kanu is held in the Nigerian Gulag, despite court orders to release him, is it marginalization, maltreatment, or murder?
10. When genocide perpetrated against the Igbo has not been addressed by the UN (United Nations), World Court, or ICC (International Criminal Court), is it marginalization, maltreatment, or murder?
11. When Nigeria starts according the Igbos, the rights and privileges of being Nigerians, the agitation for Biafra will fizzle.
12. Are our politicians listening?

The Igbos should constitute a legal team to bring their grievances to the attention of the world. Igbo inaction makes the claim that the Igbos are related to the Jews ridiculous!

  1. When tens of thousands of Igbos were killed by Gowon in 1966, was he ever taken to the world court, or ICC, till date, no no no. He is still walking free in Nigeria, and have the guts to: “I am happy that Ojukwu died a Nigerian”. It can be demonstrated that more Igbos were enslaved, Christianized, of all ethnic groups of not only Sub Saharan Africa, but all Africa too. To what then (we may ask) should one attribute those incidents in Igbo history. Igbos as a major ethnic group in Africa, have lost more of her population than other major ethnic groups. Just think of the killing of twins, Sale of relatives for slavery, the Biafra war victims and the self-exiled in unreturnable learned in diaspora., etc. Is our lot in history?
