On August 6, 2017, there was a serious terrorist attack which took place at St. Philip’s Catholic Church in Amakwa, Ozubulu Anambra State ,Biafra land where Biafrans were massacred in their large numbers. Although, it is only the traditional rulers of Ozubulu community that can tell the world how much the Anambra State government paid them to bury such heinous crime. The Nigerian government did everything humanly possible to cover the crime so that the world will not know the truth. I am making it categorically clear that the Anambra State government and the Federal Government of Nigeria paid Ozubulu traditional rulers to bury the incidence into oblivion because when a Biafran journalist visited a town hall meeting where the leaders of Ozubulu were having a meeting few days after the incidence, he was denied access into the meeting because he identified himself as a Biafran journalist. Well, that can be a story for another day because it is not the issue at the moment.
As Biafrans, other Nigerians and the world at large have suddenly forgotten about the Ozubulu church terrorist attack due to the fact that the leaders of Ozubulu community were paid off by the Nigerian government to close the heinous crime, it is important to make the world know that it was the Nigerian Army who carried out the attack. I will continue to accuse them of the terrorist attack inside the Ozubulu Church. As everyone can see, they have shown the world their true colours when they attempted to assassinate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in his residence. I want the world to know that if the Nigerian Army had successfully assassinated Nnamdi Kanu, they would have quickly run away as they did in Ozubulu church and Gov Okezie Ikpeazu and the Police would fabricate any story that suits them. It is pertinent to let the world know that all these terrorists tendencies and other crimes in Biafra land are committed by the Nigerian army.
It is upon this ground that I consider it necessary to call on the leaders of South East especially the governors, the senators, the traditional rulers, religious leaders and other stakeholders to tell the Nigerian Army that the Igbo people of Biafra are now tired of Nigerian Army acts of terrorism and other menace in the South East. Let the Nigerian Army vacate the streets and High ways of Biafra land. When I told the world that it was the Nigerian Army that invaded Ozubulu Church and massacred the worshippers, the world found it difficult to believe me. But now that the Nigerian Army has made similar attempt to assassinate Nnamdi Kanu but was foiled by Biafran civilians who were around the compound, is it not time for well meaning people all over the world to know that the Nigerian Army actually massacred Ozubulu Church worshipers?
Meanwhile, the world should not forget in a hurry that the eye witnesses of Ozubulu Church massacre said that people who massacred the worshipers came in military uniform. What is the difference between what happened in Ozubulu Church and what would have happened in the house of Nnamdi Kanu? Had the Nigerian Army succeeded in doing what they planned to do by assassinating Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and escaped, the world would not have believed that the Nigerian Army would ever go near Nnamdi Kanu’s residence.
Hence, it is obvious now that all the violent crimes in Biafra land including the disguised Fulani terrorists attacks are all actually carried out by the Nigerian Army. When will the world prevail on the Nigerian government to withdraw all the military men on the streets and Highways of Biafra land? Igbo people are no longer safe with armed military presence. If the Nigerian government refuses to vacate all the army officers from the streets and Highways of Biafra land, it means Biafrans will resort to self-defense and the world should hold the Nigerian government responsible as a result of such because the assassination attempt on Nnamdi Kanu is the height of violent crime ever attempted by the Nigerian Army.
I rest my case!
