Biafra resistance movement pre-empts its return!

Herbert Ekwe-Ekwe

The Biafra freedom movement continues to challenge and override the cardinal tenets that define comparable liberatory trajectories of contemporary history. It has remained fiercely peaceful and resilient despite the scorched-earth savagery of the Nigeria genocidist military and its Boko Haram and Fulani militia allies – the genocidists have murdered 2000 Igbo since October 2015 with scant condemnation from the rest of the world including co-genocidist ally Britain.

USUALLY, a liberation movement “returns home” on the morrow of victory! No, not the Biafra freedom movement which is already emplaced throughout Biafra, as the world observes, setting up structures and processes of restoration-of-independence before formal restoration...  Scholars and students of liberation are gasping to catch up with learning what new breaks or departures this movement is teaching the rest of the world on how to deal with anti-human regimes especially the genocidist caste à la Nigériana.
