ICHEOKU says the time has come and the time is now for the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra to be allowed to choose their self governance and exit from Nigeria going forward.. A referendum on the future of Biafra is a legitimate demand of the people and it is their right to so do. The people of the Nation of Biafra want to of their own way because of the hostilities from other member nations of Nigeria. Let the United Nations order a referendum and let the people decide in their own Biafraexit.


ICHEOKU says in unison, Biafrans stretch out their hands in demand of freedom to self govern themselves. ICHEOKU says it is every man's right to self governance and in a Biafran Nation we stand. Give us Biafra - BIAEXIT. Ekene. Shalom. Salute.


ICHEOKU says they can break the body but they can never overwhelm the soul and the spirit lives on until victory is achieved. On this day May 30th, survivors of that pogrom supervised by the genocidal maniac Yakubu Jackal Gowon and their descendants show immense gratitude to those who fought to preserve our identity as an indigenous people; as well as all those who paid the supreme sacrifice that we may live freely as Indegenious People of Biafra . ICHEOKU says the nation of Biafra is proud for what you accomplished and on this day pays their gratitude. Aluta Continua !


"There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result. Terrorism's devastation of life will continue to spread, peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence, and the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered. If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God." - President Donald John Trump.


ICHEOKU says it is worth fighting for, self determination and it is not a crime for a people to aspire for self governance. Indigenous Peoples of Biafra are marching forward and hopefully they will soon get to the promised land. Viva Biafra.

"When two raging fires meet together, they do consume the thing that feeds their fury. Though little fire grows great with little wind, yet extreme gusts do blow out fire." - William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew


“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” - SJ


"The threat of evil is ever present. We can contain it as long as we stay vigilant, but it can never truly be destroyed. - Lorraine Warren (Annabelle, the movie)


“I’m not that interested in material things. As long as I find a good bed that I can sleep in, that’s enough.” - Nicolas Berggruem, the homeless billionaire.

Icheoku says suddenly everybody in Nigeria has become mute, silenced and extremely measured in their criticism of the present government of President Muhammadu Buhari. They are no longer keen on pointing out the shortcomings of the government and you wonder what changed? These were the same people who shouted everybody deaf, hollering about the deficiencies of the former president Jonathan Goodluck of Otuoke, eventually chasing him out of Aso Rock and out of power. Many of them constituted themselves into various human rights activists this and activists that; civil rights this and that; as well as conscience of the nation this and that. So where are these people today or what happened to them and their holding the torch for the nation? 

These noise maker no longer see nor hear nor voice out anything wrong with the way Nigeria is headed and you wonder if miraculously everything is now kosher in Nigeria and their services or activism no longer needed nor necessary. Theirs have become a case of see no evil, hear no evil and talk no evil of and about President Muhammadu Buhari and his slumbering confused government. Like Jesus Christ admonished in the Bible, he who is without sin should cast the first stone and it appears that these bunch of Nigerians have disappeared in the same manner those accusers of the adulterous woman. These men and women have been checkmated by the EFCC, as almost all of them have fallen short of glory by reason of corruption and are bound to be picked up and interrogated by the EFCC. So it would appear that the fear of EFCC's invitation by these rabble rousers is now the beginning of wisdom for them. 

All of these activists so called have one stinking skeleton or the other in their closet and the EFCC has files on them; and none of them wants to be deprived of his or her freedom and liberty. Now they look the other way, zip their mouth and with two fingers plug their ears, while the current lord of the manor in Nigeria traverses the land. Arbitrary acting, saying and doing whatever and however he pleases, without anyone reminding him that he is not an emperor who can do no wrong. Culpable of the corruption war, so now shackled with fear of being arrested by EFCC, they decide to play it safe by being deaf and dumb, while the country is spiraling down the path to perdition. Icheoku queries are these Nigerians the same Nigerians who literally drove Jonathan of Otuoke out of Aso Rock with all manners of accusation and shouting of fire in the theater that actually almost set Nigeria ablaze. 

There is fire on the mountain in Nigeria and instead of these people telling Nigerians to run, run, run; they are petrified with fear and cannot even move their lips nor lift their hands in condemnation of the man at Aso Rock. Power supply has not improved and have gotten even worse, yet it is hallelujah. Security situation has not improved, yet it is all praise songs to the emperor of Aso Rock. Boko haram is still running amok, yet it is give give some time to languish them. Naira has depreciated greatly but there is no problem. Oil price has not appreciated yet there is no qualms. Unemployment has only skyrocketed to new high, but it is okay. Chibok girls are still missing but the Bring Back Their Girls pressure group have gone silent. Fulani cattle terrorists are maiming and killing Nigerians, destroying properties and means of livelihood, but it only gets tepid mention. Kidnapping and armed robbery as well as other vices and brigandry is on the roll in Nigeria, but these loud mouths appear not to be worried. 

Nigerians, Icheoku asks what is going on or rather what purchased the current silence; or does being a Fulani grant a president certain inviolable immunity from criticism and being Ijaw, automatically ensures a president being ran out of Aso Rock like a petty vagrant. Worse still, even the so called men and women of "God" have all gone silent too and you wonder if the current situation in Nigeria is acceptable to them? Anyway, Icheoku can only point the way and also point out certain observed wrongs, but regrets to say that Nigerians are a funny lot; a people who have no core nor character and whose stand on issues is Clintonian and highly influenced by peculiar circumstances. Possibly the Gods are angry at Nigerians and apologizing to Jonathan of Otuoke might be a way to start the process of atonement. A very incredible people, especially the so called civil and human rights activists and the conscience of the nation. What a country.
