Today marks 51 years that the Nigerian civil war ended.
The war was fought between Biafra secessionists led by late Odimegwu Ojukwu and the Nigerian government under the military dictatorship of Yakubu Gowon.

Everybody that has the Igbo blood coursing through their veins, owes it to themselves to remember those that came before them. Those that met their untimely deaths at the hands of Nigerian vampires.

1. Biafra, its IPOB, is a legitimate struggle which I fully subscribe to. But, if you are supporting the Unknown Gunmen, know this now; “YOU ARE PLAYING WITH FIRE!”
After they are done with the police, who’s next? Do not let your hate for Buhari, becloud your sense of reasoning.

The Igbos are a very democratic tribe.
We resent absolute power, because it corrupts absolutely.
Hence, the adage “Ezebuilo” meaning “a king is an enemy”
The Igbos are most peaceful when dialogue and reason prevails, not authority.#ozoemena

God bless Biafra. God bless defunct Eastern Nigeria. God bless Igbo land.
And God bless our people.
