While Nwannekaenyi Kenny Okwu-Kanu, the ‘director’ of Radio Biafra is a globally recognized terrorist and fraudster who continues to hamper the perhaps legitimate struggles by Igbo youth for self determination, the write-up below explains the proper ways for Igbos to attain self-determination and a “Biafra” nation.

The freedom of a territory within a country does not lie in the hand of the president, nor the senate, neither does it lies in the hand of Nnamdi KANU the popular Biafra “freedom fighter,” the power of freedom belongs to the people, freedom is never gained by the minority but the majority and to gain independence from a country more than 2/3 of a territory must determine through referendum or other means except violence (as is Kanu’s speciality) which could be regarded as terror against a Nation from a small territory.
Let My People Go
It is no lie that the only man on earth that have used the phrase ‘let my people go” successfully was moses and it was even a quotation from God, till date the phrase no longer work because it does not carry lot of people along, not just that alone, It sound rude to be said to the arms of governance in Nigeria. The let my people go does not work where there are much people with different opinion and reasoning, it does not bare their pain, it limit the people to being bound under a dictator and it relegates the IQ of all, sidelining everyones interest for a thinking of minor group of people within the proposed Biafran territory .
Biafra Needs Unity
Biafra as at today is a movement with much more factions, Nigeria is confused on which of them to grant independence, the Nation cannot afford to demarcate in between its original structures, A territory can be independent when more than 2/3 agrees to stand as an independent territory.
Biafra cannot go because it has turned itself to an anti nation movement, they throw abusive words at Nigeria, they trigger war and it has grown to become a fraudulent cartel where people are being coarsed financially, physically and emotionally, Many are still battling with what the 60s, 70 and 80s war created by some small group calling for a Biafra nation caused.
The Biafra struggle is a good struggle if it’s being done in accordance to the rule and law of separation, not by war or fight, no nation would concede lose to a small territory, “Biafrans” must learn.
You might be thinking it’s about time to set up your own country. You’ve picked out a flag, written a national anthem, even printed up money with your face on it. But what’s the next step? Creating a new country isn’t as easy as you think.
Biafra Freedom Lies Here
Dear Biafra fighters, as tempting as it might be to declare your cubicle a sovereign state, customary international law actually does specify minimum standards for statehood and Independence.
These are the fundamental requirements:
*You must have a defined territory.
*You must have a permanent population.
*You must have a government.
* Your government must be capable of interacting with other states
Biafra haven’t met up with just one of this criteria, recognition by UN is also a guarantee for freedom, Nobody knows which group of Biafrans to recognise.
As you can see, the point at which a territory officially becomes a country is very much in the eyes of the beholder, Its not about money or war that you are being told about, its about the power and sincere struggle of the sane populace.
