THE KING AND THE QUEEN

Share it:

Like many of us in this struggle, I started hearing about Biafra as a child. I lived most of my infant age in a refugee camp. I grew up with the fascinating stories of how brave Biafrans confronted the federal troupes and defended our holy land of Biafra.

I visited Afara Ukwu Umuahia during a religious program in the year 1991, some of my friends who travelled with me decided we pay a visit to Biafra war Museum in Umuahia. That was the first time I entered Ojukwu bunker, I even saw the first Radio Biafra transmitter, the armoured tank captured by corporal Nwafor, and the ones built by Biafran Engineers. All these were few metres away from the palace of Eze Israel Okwu Kanu, the father of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. I didn't know much about Umuahia then.

It was in this environment that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was born, so he was not joking when he said in one of his broadcasts that the Biafra war ended in his father's compound. They were not afraid to declare their identities as Biafrans; the KING AND THE QUEEN. They gave us the tonic needed for Biafra to rise up and reclaim her lost identity, that tonic is Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. They stood behind him and paid the ultimate price needed for our freedom.

THE KING AND THE QUEEN by all indication were not hungry people but they had a burden, and their burden is the burden of over 70 million Biafrans who are scattered all over the world, who are living as slaves both home and abroad. Their burden is the burden of our mothers being raped by herdsmen, our fathers being slaughtered on the daily basis on our farm lands, the Biafran graduates who could not secure a job in any private or public institution. Their burden was the burden of the poor Biafrans who may not secure admission in the university because his or her nationality, the Biafrans who pay electric bills without using electricity, so that he can secure his service cables, the burden of Northern Christians who are being slaughtered by Islamic extremists with the wrong intention that they are rendering service to Allah by killing non-Muslims. Their burden is the burden of Biafran children with dual nationality who may not step their feet in Biafra land throughout their life on earth due to security threat brought to our land by foreigners from Futa Jallon mountain. Their burden was the burden of Biafra Children who could not boast of three square meal daily.

They saw the glimpse of the rising sun, and their faith was ignited, and like Simeon the Old High priest in the temple who received Yahshua during his dedication prayer in Luke Chapter 2:29-31 which says: “29Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. 30For my eyes have seen your salvation, 31which you have prepared in the sight of all nations"

There is nothing left for them to do. They have prepared the vessel very well before now and had handed the baton over to him. As elders they could not behold the type of terror Nigeria security agents unleashed in their presence which led to the death of over 29 peoples including family members. Such bloodletting scenario was too violent for a people who have most of their lives as ambassadors of peace, who brought peace and succour to many homes including the high and the mighty.

Our ancestors believe in honouring our fallen heroes and heroines because we don't believe in death. THE KING AND THE QUEEN are not dead, they have gone to change their battle regalia, they will soon join us in the blessed land of Biafra to enjoy the fruit of their labour. Eze and Lolo Israel Okwu Kanu, good night, see you in the blessed land of Biafra in the morning.
