Freedom fighting didn't start with Africa; neither did it begin with Biafra nor Nnamdi Kanu. Freedom is a universal law that everyone has a right to. Many nations fought to be free from their colonial masters, and today they're enjoying freedom. Americans led a revolution against their colonial master, the British government and got independence in 1776. The Republic of Ireland, Canada and over 45 more countries around the globe had gained independence from the same British government.
In the case of Biafran agitation for freedom, the Nigerian government is working tirelessly with the British government their colonial master to kill the agitation by the assassination of the Biafran freedom fighter and the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The leader of the indigenous people of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu made a remarkable revelation on radio Biafra London broadcast in 2014 that the British government would have no other option than to assassinate him in other to keep Nigeria as one entity. Today the revelation is on the verge of manifestation.
Nnamdi Kanu was arrested on 14th, October 2015 by the Nigerian government on the direct order of the British government, he was detained, incarcerated, tortured and held for two years to break his zeal for the agitation of Biafra. They tried all manner of technics to break him and retard his approach of a brave man with a determined heart, but they failed. The Nigerian/British government didn't stop at that, they made a mouth-watering offer to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, including billions of dollars, oil blocks, government positions etc. for him to drop the agitation yet he refused to compromise and remained resolute, as he has always preached.
As these approaches by the Nigerian and British government didn’t work, Nnamdi Kanu was released following overwhelming pressure from the international communities, lovers of freedom, IPOB family members/media warriors and the support from courageous Biafrans at home and in Diaspora. The Nigerian and British government then decided to employ the assassination plot to kill Nnamdi Kanu as he can not be bought, The Killer snipers were mounted at every corner in Biafra land to assassinate Nnamdi Kanu, but the well organised IPOB security outfit on the ground made it unsuccessful. They tried to poison him by penetrating his inner circle, that also failed because those around Nnamdi Kanu are his apostles who believe that wealth cannot be compared with freedom, so they are as committed to Biafra restoration as he is.
When all these failed, the Nigerian government deployed a killer squad of combined armed forces comprised of the Nigerian police Army, Navy and Air Force fully armed to the teeth and they invaded the home of Nnamdi Kanu at Afara-Ukwu Ibeku, Umuahia in Abia state to assassinate him. All manner of military hardware were deployed which includes, Armoured Personnel carriers, Fighter Jets and Helicopters that hovered over his home and environment. The assassination mission was termed operation Python dance II and was foiled by fearless IPOB security outfit, which led to the assassination of 28 gallant unarmed IPOB security personnel on the spot.
Nnamdi Kanu was evacuated by the brave IPOB security personnel and was off sight for 399 days. Within the days of his disappearance, the British/Nigerian government plotted lies and deceit by using Orji Uzor Kalu to see if IPOB could be lured into exposing the where about of Nnamdi Kanu. Orji hallucinated that he saw Nnamdi Kanu in Ghana and later said that he has fled to London through Malaysia. All these came from the criminal Orji Uzor Kalu to justify the money he duped the Nigerian government. Orji lied to the Nigerian government that him and Nnamdi Kanu are related because of the sound alike and the pronunciation of their surnames (Kanu) and (Kalu) which made the Nigerian government give Orji Uzor Kalu massive amount of money that he requested to convince Nnamdi Kanu to drop Biafra agitation when Nnamdi Kanu was still in Kuje prison, but, he failed.
At 400 days of Nnamdi Kanu's disappearance, he reappeared in Israel at the Wailing Wall where he was seen praying. Till date, his reappearance in Israel remains a mystery to the Nigerian government; they wonder how IPOB security outfit could outsmart the shameless, poorly trained, undisciplined Nigerian security outfit that was sent to kill an unarmed man despite spending a considerable amount to acquire military hardware for the operation.
Since then the plot to assassinate Nnamdi Kanu has been going on underground and has been finally completed. Nnamdi Kanu should be careful; the British/Nigerian snipers are out to get him, but they will fail as they always do, and at the end, we will WIN because we are confident of the victory of good over evil, of truth over lies.
