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

For July 3, 2009

You have heard the news; now, the analysis…

Fellow Biafrans:

In today’s message, we will deal with "matters arising"...:

1. We have witnessed how our Niger Delta brethren are defending what is theirs by right, doing the job the best way they know how, and it is working—very well, indeed—in spite of the overwhelming advantage in brute force enjoyed by the evil Nigerian government and its armed forces operating without conscience, without morals and without accountability. We support our Niger Delta brethren: in the end, David shall prevail over Goliath, Nigeria. Let us learn focus, determination and courage from our Delta brethren, and apply such accordingly.

2. We have witnessed how the Nigerian government and its corrupt and inept leaders have tried to bribe, intimidate, threaten, blackmail, divide, confound and split our Niger Delta brethren. Nigeria, as such, has succeeded with some, including the Niger Delta prominent leaders, but not with the true freedom fighters; not with the voiceless and powerless for whom these freedom fighters speak. In the rest of Biafraland, Nigeria has done the same, with (unfortunate for us) substantial success. For example, only relatively few Igbo leaders have survived such Nigeria’s corruptive onslaught, the majority having succumbed, without shame, turned into handmaidens, slaves and organs of Nigeria and their Hausa-Fulani handlers. Thank Goodness that Igbo masses know better. Biafrans: we must all learn from our brethren of Niger Delta to stick with the task in hand and the Goal, and not be bought or frightened off course.

3. We see the Nigerian government promising "Amnesty" in order to weaken the resolve of our Niger Delta brethren, those courageous souls who refuse to be used and abused any more by the monster called Nigeria, a hideousness bent on devouring hapless people and their resources, washing it down with the victim’s blood and Oil. We also remember General Gowon’s infamous, empty and deceitful "no victors, no vanquished" drivel of 1970 and the mockery that his so-called Postwar "3R’s" turned into. In the recent times, General Obasanjo of the Biafra war notoriety, as President of Nigeria, has finally publicly revealed and confessed that for Nigeria, Gowon and cabal, the Biafra War was fought solely because of Nigeria’s greedy desire to claim and take control of Biafra’s Oil. That revelation was used as a veiled threat to restive Niger Delta by Obasanjo while Obasanjo stood on Niger Delta territory. Today, Nigeria’s armed and bloody rampage in the Niger Delta is for the same reason—the Oil; the only difference being that such a bloody colonial interest can no longer be successfully hidden from the world. Nigeria just wants all of the Niger Delta Oil and will kill 20 million Deltans, if necessary, in addition to the thousands it has already murdered, for that Oil. Therefore, it is the turn of our Niger Delta brethren to learn from us—to learn from the Biafra experience—and not allow themselves to be deceived by Nigeria again. Today’s Nigeria "Amnesty" to the Niger Delta is the same murderous hand dealt to Biafra by Nigeria since 1970.

4. Nigeria is finished. Nigeria failed as a State a long time ago. The husk currently called Nigeria is only kept alive as a masquerade used by the Northern nations to frighten timid Southern nations, to sustain their culture of pernicious parasitism off the rest, and to continue their Islamic jihadist agenda against Biafra, hoping to extend their Desert fiefdoms to the Atlantic Ocean through the land of Biafra. Today, we say, No! to that; No! to Nigeria / one-Nigeria. Today, we know only one thing: Self Determination. We focus on only one thing: Sovereignty and Independence. And, we do so without encroaching on anyone else’s territory or property, and without colonialism or parasitism: we have what is ours, and we are what is ours.

Let no Biafran, therefore, offer or accept, any other political configuration with Nigeria than each nation standing on its own, each nation sovereign and independent, free to engage in free and equitable, mutually beneficial discourse among free independent nations.

We still have our Biafran brethren being held in Nigeria’s jails. We continue to insist on their release 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.
