Boko Haram: Igbo Group Vows To Avenge Killings

Conference of Igbo Youth Organizations

July 11, 2012 – Boko Haram: Igbo Group Vows To Avenge Killings

Conference of Igbo Youth Organizations, CIYO, a brand new Igbo group has warned that Ndigbo will no longer watch in silence while their brothers and sisters are slaughtered like animals  in the northern states in Nigeria.

CIYO has vowed to begin a ‘tit for tat’ attack. Most of the victims of the ongoing massacre in the North are Christians mostly of the Igbo stock in eastern Nigeria.

Also, the Igbo youths in a statement endorsed  by 10 youth leaders, including the National Coordinator, Igbo Youth Grand Alliance, Dr. Uchenna Uchehara, who read it after their emergency meeting in Owerri yesterday said: “Events of the past few months in Nigeria have become very disturbing to stakeholders, especially the Igbo  nation that played a major role in the founding of Nigeria and in spite of the tragedies of the Biafran war, resolved to give total support to one united Nigeria.”

He  lamented that the ugly experience of Ndigbo in Nigeria had been the persistent and unprovoked  killings of Igbo citizens outside Igbo land.

Similarly, a pro-Biafra group, Biafra Zionist Movement, BZM, has announced that it had commenced the process to launch the struggle for a state of Biafra with the international community, saying that the formal declaration of the new Biafra Republic is slated for  5 November, this year.

National President of BZM, Benjamin Onwuka  said  Biafra Republic could not be realised over the years  because of the  inability of Biafrans to get the support of  world  powers like the United States of America to back the project.

“As we approach the end of 13 years since the mobilization and struggle for Biafran independence began under the aegis of MASSOB and other groups, the people of Biafra have not made much effort in realising our dreams because the struggle has been internalised since 1999,”  Onwuka said.

He expressed regrets that the international community did not know the aspirations of the Biafra people, saying “ the aspirations of  Biafra  people must therefore be made known to the  international  community because the forces preventing the dreams for our independence are vested in the United Kingdom.

‘’Biafra can only be achieved when we secure the support of the United States of America; the day USA comes to our  side, that day we shall be free from Nigeria; the story of South Sudan where a bloody civil war was fought for over 24 years is a typical example.”

    @Dan, it is not selfishness rather a convinction borne out of deep rooted concern, i agree with u that the world has changed but i dnt agree with u to change d name, in this new world order most of us, the current Biafran generation dnt are not intersted in the oil states for survival, so dnt be scared we are not looking at oil, if u look at the current UN economic development statics S-East has d highest economic empowerment

    I support the struggle but the name is the barrier, if not other region will join in the struggle because enough is enough in the northern region. Enough blood has been shed. So let everybody bear his or her father’s name.

    K.B wake up,don’t be a fool.For ur information the struggle for the state of Biafra will never die.What is happening in the northern Nigeria is a sign from God dat the hour has come to liberate his pple from dis Egypt called Nigeria.Gowon participated actively in the massacre of the black jews during Biafra war,now the punishment has befalling his pple.He has to apologies to the Igbos for his involvement or fall in the hands of the uncircumcised.We shall move into action once the time is ripe.We have our foot soldiers on ground and recruitment is still ongoing.Goodluck cannot help Nigeria now cos the time is ripe.He is under Gods guidance.Long live the struggle for Biafra and so help us God.Jesus is Lord!

    Is so amazing that nigeria xtians could fold their hands and watch dis evil mohamedist waste d precious lives of xtians while they and their children live comfortably in xtian land. This bloodshed can be stopped only if there is always instant reprisal, d muslims dat I knw will not stop until dey feel wat we are feeling, their mentor mohd was a blood sucker, so u can see dat it is part of their religion to shedblood. Wake up wake xtians from ur slumber, come 2gada, shine ur eyes, wipe them frm ur state and neighborhood, Dnt use them as security guard, do no business wit dem,both their women &children are evil pple with no human conscience, curse be them and their children dat shed innocent blood 4 their dead gods. Wake up sleeping xtians, jonathan will do nothing abt dis but only apologise to u while he go back 2 his mansion & forget d pains we go tru, wake up & shine ur eyes, dis is nt tym 4 prayer but time 4 war against our foes. 2gada we can wipe dem out, they are hindrance 2 d progress of d nation. Long live My country Nigeria!!!

    I do not advocate war but if Boko Haram is of the view that normalcy could only be possible in the north through the adoption of sharia law,then what Boko Haram is advocating indirectly is a dangerous signal.The International community could wade into the problem and do something instead of keeping quiet and watch us kill ourselves.
