107th birthday of Louis Mbanefo

(Born 13 May 1911, Onicha, Biafra)
Herbert Ekwe-Ekwe

ERUDITE human rights lawyer and distinguished international jurist at the International Court of Justice, The Hague, 1962-1966, where he sets up the defining international legal protocols that ensure the 1990 restoration-of-independence for African peoples in Namibia from a century of European World conquest and occupation (Germany, Britain/European occupied-South Africa), entrenched after Germany had carried out the expansive and catastrophic genocides against the Herero, Nama and Derg Damara peoples of the country, 1904-1907…

Chief justice of Biafra and ambassador extraordinary in the resistance Biafra government during the Igbo genocide, the foundational genocide of post-(European)conquest Africa, 29 May 1966-12 January 1970, phases I-III, in which 3.1 million Igbo or 25 per cent of Igbo population are murdered by Hausa-Fulani islamist jihadist-led Nigeria and its suzerain state Britain under the premiership of Harold Wilson…

Justice Mbanefo possesses that distinct scholar’s contemplative persona that has come to define the insistent resilience of the Biafra freedom movement...
