It is natural to think of elections alongside political corruption and the evil associated with politics.
When Wilie Obiano Okeke was officially elected as the Governor of Anambra State four year ago, I thought that justice for those who deserve it will no longer be as elusive as it were during the previous administration of Peter Obi. I thought that those who massacred over 30 IPOB youths and dumped their corpses in Ezu river will be brought to book. This was my belief during the first year of the Obiano Okeke led administration.
However, I turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to news about extra judicial killings because I supported the campaign to eliminate criminality and men of the underworld in Anambra State complo. I shut up and convinced myself that nothing was wrong with the number of criminals that were killed everyday. I thought I was right. But far from it!
My reasoning has changed now. I have realized that the Police has gone to the extreme, by killing hundreds and thousands of innocent lives just to create the impression that the war on criminality is indeed succeeding.
The systematic killings of numerous IPOB members in Anambra State including the Nkpor massacre where Obiano ordered security operatives to attack IPOB members which resulted to the deaths of over a hundred, is a genocidal attack which the people of Anambra can never forget in a hurry.
Today, IPOB is asking Anambra to boycott election in the State pending when the Federal government opt for a Referendum for Biafrians to decide their true existence in Nigeria, but surprisingly some disgruntled and occult politicians in Anambra State have started performing rituals to cage the minds of the people of Anambra and lure them to partake in the upcoming gubernatorial election.
Yesterday morning, on my way to the office, I spotted where ram was slaughtered and its heart chained with a padlock along the popular Eke-Awka Junction. While passer-by gathered to witness this horrific scene, a security man who pledged anonymity alleged that the kind of sacrifices being performed in the government house Awka is far worst. He revealed that recently around 12midnight, all of them working as security men were told to leave their duty posts for an hour, upon their return they spotted blood all over the place at the entrance of the main gate.
All these sacrifices are meant to lure the people of Anambra to partake in the gubernatorial election. But the truth is that the angry spirits of Biafrans killed for this cause shall always speak vengeance and neutralize all the enchantments and sacrifices aimed at caging and diverting the minds of the people into believing that election is the solution to their problems.
At all cost, the people of Anambra must effectively boycott the gubernatorial election because it is the surest way to restore Biafra and give peace to the spirits of our slain IPOB members who were extra judicially slaughtered in Eke Nkpor on 30th August, 2016.
