This is the News Analysis segment of the Voice of Biafra International (VOBI) broadcasts

For June 19, 2009

You have heard the news; now, the analysis…

Fellow Biafrans:

This message is for the Youth of Biafra. There may still be hope for you if, when you wake up today, you finally realize that you have no life in Nigeria; if you can understand that there is truly no future for you under one-Nigeria. Until then, you are completely finished—a non-person who does not exist as far as Nigeria and Nigerians are concerned. Of course, being an "infidel" by Islamic designation, in the country called Nigeria now wholly claimed as a Muslim nation, you basically do not exist, anyway.

Maybe you don't know it, but, in other lands not too far from Nigeria, not even across seas and oceans from Nigeria, animals are treated better than you are treated now in Nigeria. In those lands, dogs and cats, even pet-mice, rodents and rabbits, are fed—well; they get fresh clean water to drink; they are groomed, and when they fall ill, many are taken to animal doctors, clinics and animal hospitals for excellent medical care. These animals have special places where they play, where they sleep and where they take care of bodily functions. Stray animals, pets and unlucky abandoned ones are taken in by charitable individuals and organizations for care. What do you, Youth of Biafra, as human beings, get in Nigeria now?

In those other lands, animals—even those destined for slaughter—and pets are protected by laws; people will be prosecuted and fined, and will go to jail when they disobey such laws. Yes, these animals have Rights, and the rights are enforced by human beings on behalf of the animals. In addition to that, societies in these lands practice a Moral Obligation to care for animals and pets: the people respect the animals, and in many cases, accept the animals with love as members and or friends of the human family. Youth of Biafra: what has Nigeria and Nigerians given you human beings: protection by law? Rights? Care? Friendship? Love? Family membership? You know very well that the answer to these questions is a big "No!" And, if you should pretend to forget, ask our Niger Delta Biafran brethren today.

Youth of Biafra: you don't have food; you can't go to school, you can't be employed and you can’t work, you cannot protect yourself, let alone protect your friends and family. You cannot provide for yourself, so how could you provide, or be expected to provide, for your family? You wake up in the morning without hope, and end the day without hope; you lie down, perchance to sleep, but can't sleep, yet, will not be spared a hope-less nightmare nonetheless. You are hunted like animals by Nigeria and killed as wild animals by Nigeria’s Armed Forces; yet, you have been reduced to a level and station considered too low even for such wild animals, forced by Nigeria and Nigerians to "live" and perform acts unimaginable and unthinkable even for beasts.

So, if you, Youth of Biafra, still want to continue to perish and die, worse than animals—worse off than animals—condemned to such a fate by Nigeria, THAT'S YOUR PROBLEM. But, don't open your mouth to call for the UN or for the US or for the World to come to your aid or to intervene on your behalf, when you have refused to do something—painful, yes—to justify your own humanity, to protect your own human dignity, and to defend your own human rights. By the same token, forget the older Biafran generations, some completely compromised and in bed with the enemy, working with, and for, your Nigerian tormentors; others misguided by what they call "caution" (which to them means total inaction), wherein they deliberately smother courage and quash courageous action. Those Biafran generations have no hope themselves; they cannot offer you any hope.

So, if you, Youth of Biafra, want to remain hope-less and die even more hopeless, do nothing: allow yourself to stew in Nigeria's acidic porridge; allow yourself to rot in the Hell that Nigeria has prepared for you and caged you in. The choice is yours.

Has Uchenna Madu been released from Nigeria's Gulag? We insist that all Biafrans who are being held by Nigeria for reacting like normal human beings and resisting when treated as animals by Nigeria, be released forthwith from Nigeria's jails.

Biafra alive! Because it is God Who makes it so.

That’s the News Analysis for the week. Thank you.


God bless and keep Biafra, and you, until our next broadcast. Voice of Biafra International (VOBI) broadcast ( now continues in Igbo, one of the Biafran languages.
