“2 million died in Biafra war,” President reminds Niger Delta separatists

Those currently agitating for Biafra never witnessed the civil war which led to 2 million deaths, President Muhammadu Buhari said on Tuesday night.

He was speaking at the breaking of fast (iftar) with his cabinet at the presidential banquet hall, Aso Rock Villa, referring to the activities of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) and the‎ ‎Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (‎IPOB)‎.

‎”We need a lot of prayers. Certainly, with the nation’s economy going down, we haven’t developed agriculture, we are still trying to talk on those who will come and develop solid minerals for us,” he said.

‎”The militants in their various homes, we need to reflect very seriously on what happened between 1967 and 1970 where about two millions Nigerians lost their lives.

“At that time, as young military officers, you hardly heard of anything about petroleum or whatever money you got from it.

“Look at what General Yakubu Gowon said: ‘To keep Nigeria one is a task that must be done’. Every soldier whether he has been to school or not knew what the general meant.

“But we were quarreling with our brothers, we were not fighting an enemy and then somebody is saying that once again he wants Biafra.

“I think this is because he was not born when there was Biafra. We have to reflect on the historical antecedents to appreciate what is before us now and what we intend to leave for our children and our grand children.”

    Buhari, you do not want Biafra, but you are marginalizing and killing them. Do you not know that by so doing you are considered to be very wicked? God hates a wicked person so do not waste your time praying to God because you are not only wicked, but corrupt, sectional, nepotistic, vindictive and a killer. There is no peace for the wicked, this your government will not know any peace until you leave wickedness. The wickedness of the wicked must end now in Jesus’ name; amen

    Then,if you knew ought not to have arrested kalu.Until his arrest,the biafra was a localized rural issue. But, you have ignited wide fire agitation which only God can stop as things stand now.As if that was not enough, you are not even helping matters with your lopsided appointments which favours only the north and nortern elders are silent. These actions are provocative and are the more fueling the already raging fire of protest and pipline vandalization.For me, prayer is not the issue.Rather,you need the will to be a true statesman and redress perceived injustice in your appointments which tended to divide us the more rather than close the guff created.If, you do this Mr.President, you will be surprised to see peace rain in Nigeria again.

    Hence you hate them while not let them go….Pherou….The Bugetary sharing allocation where you gave the South East from Edo to Imo and to Cross Rever and Byeslsa pee nut prove that Nigeria is not one and actually you hate them…
    You carried the big billions to the North ….

    For GOD Says; Isaiah 48:22 “There is no peace,” says the Lord, “for the wicked.”
