6 Strong Signs That Nnamdi Kanu And Biafra Might Succeed [No 6 Is The Main Reason]

The resolve of pro-Biafrans have grown stronger over the years

Here are 6 strong reasons why Biafra might come.. A dream that was born 50 years ago.

1. It is legal

When a people believe that they have been oppressed for too long, and cannot remain as part of the community in which they thrive, its is their right to request that they be set apart from the parent group.

There are justified reasons for secession, especially if it has to do with rectifying grave injustices, and violence is not involved in the process.

2. Foreign countries support

Just few months back, the struggle for the actualisation of a sovereign state of Biafra received a massive boost following the reported visit of a Phillippian envoy to Imo state.

According to Vanguard, the Phillippian Senate president’s aide, Lady Cynthia Esgurrna Touraha, was a guest of Imo Bilie Initiative (IBI) a non-governmental organization that is also strongly behind the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) getting justice in an Owerri high court.

We shall employ legal framework and diplomatic channels in fighting for the sovereign state of Biafra.”

3. International organization lending their voices

In 2015, the Organization of Emerging African States (OEAS), expressed its support to Biafra’s immediate from Nigeria, simultaneously presenting a list of demands to the Nigeria federal government.

The Organization that promotes self-determination and the end to colonial era boundaries in Africa has declared its support to the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and its adherents in a letter to the Nigeria federal government.

“Today the people of Biafra are locked in an emerging struggle with the Nigeria federal government, the inevitable result of which will be self-determination for Biafra.

Unfortunately the Nigerian government has resorted to summary execution and detention of Biafran patriots.

The situation will surely escalate unless immediate action is taken.”

4. The power in Numbers

Without a doubt, there is a massive growth in size as regards pro-Biafra agitators and pro-Biafra groups. Some argue that having too many groups might be a problem in itself, this is based on the theory that too many hands spoil the stew.

However, there is straight in numbers and the pro-Biafrans are using this mightily. As the numbers swell, confidence is built stronger and with such confidence, they say “victory is certain”.

5. Aligning Niger Delta militants and the South South Support

Not too long ago, the IPOB, stated that Biafraland is not only the areas inhabited by the Igbo-speaking people of the country.

The IPOB claimed that Biafra spans from Itsekiriland on the western boundary with Oduduwa to Bakassi on the eastern boundary with the Cameroons, and also stretches from Idoma and Igala land on the northern boundary with Northern Nigeria to the Bight of Biafra which is South of the island of Bonny.

6. Peaceful, simple but tactical approach

In more recent times, secession has been approached from a no violence angle, the less report of violence by prio-Biafrans is a testimony to the fact that other very smart means are currently being employed to see that the dream is achieved.

 

Recently, the European Union (EU) said that though it holds strong diplomatic and economic relationship with Nigeria, the “protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms remains a priority for the EU and we encourage the authorities [Nigeria] in every occasion to respect such rights.”

The EU went on to caution the OEAS and Biafran that the push for self-determination and border changes must be carried out within the ambits of established international law.
