We are putting the world on notice. The United Nations, European Union, African Union, ECOWAS and other world organizations should take note. The Nigerian government is hell bent on provoking the citizens of Biafra into picking up arms to defend themselves. We can see for open that we do not have any other choice. We have been dealt with, wounded and hurt. We have been nursing our injuries, they shouldn’t add more salts to it, hence they can’t stand to face it’s reactions.
