Biafra : The Case For Biafra Is Stronger Than South Sudan, Kosovo – US Constitutional Lawyer Writes

Biafra : The Case For Biafra Is Stronger Than South Sudan, Kosovo – US Constitutional Lawyer Writes

Biafra, dominated by the great Igbo race, enjoyed sovereignty before Great Britain commenced exploitive colonial rule over Nigeria under the racist banner of Rudyard Kipling’s “the White Man’ burden.” Britain asserted authority over Biafra based on the tyrannical doctrine that the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must. The Berlin West Africa Conference, 1884-85, and the Berlin General Act symbolised colonial lawlessness by treating Africa as a carcass to be…

UCHE ONYEMA: FROM ME TO YOUR HEART TO PONDER.

UCHE ONYEMA: FROM ME TO YOUR HEART TO PONDER.

It is about the scheming going on in the south-east region today. It is about Anambra2017 gubernatorial elections. A lot of movements are being made. Cross-over would-have-dignitaries are moving or rushing to APC. Too many names are emerging as potential candidates under APC. I need not mention their names. On the other hand PDP is positioning and repositioning strategizing on how to wrestle power from APGA. The peter Obi camp are already acting Peter Obi…

Biafra:How a Nation may separate itself from the State of which it is a Member, or renounce its Allegiance to its Sovereign when it is not protected.

Biafra:How a Nation may separate itself from the State of which it is a Member, or renounce its Allegiance to its Sovereign when it is not protected.

We have said that an independent nation, which, without becoming a member of another state, has voluntarily rendered itself dependent on or subject to it in order to obtain protection, is released from its engagements as soon as that protection fails, even though the failure happen through the inability of the protector. But we are not to conclude that it is precisely the same case with every nation that cannot obtain speedy and effectual protection…

News: James Ibori fled Nigeria because the cabal in Aso Rock wanted him dead

In this final article in my series of replies to Simon Kolawole’s “The Welcome Party” (Thisday newspaper of Sunday December 25, 2016), where he condemned the massive celebration Chief James OnanefeIbori’s release from UK jail elicited in Nigeria, I will face the sixth untruth in his single article. He wrote: “Season Three, I call it ‘The Journey’, started in 2010 when the government of President Goodluck Jonathan re-opened the case and Ibori, in an attempt…

Culture: The Igbo: When did the Hebrew contact occur?

The Igbo: When did the Hebrew contact occur? REFERENCE “A” It is not my intention to do more than merely refer to this reputed connection; but, according to missionary research, both the Efik and Ibo tongues abound in Hebraisms, while the construction of sentences, the verbal significations, the mode of comparison, are also typical of the Hebrew; and in the same way nouns, adverbs, and adjectives are formed from the single roots of verbs and…

Culture:VIRGINITY: Igbo vs. Hebrews

Culture:VIRGINITY: Igbo vs. Hebrews

Among the Edo it is an exceedingly common thing for a girl to bear children before marriage, and in one village I found a case in which a daughter of one of the principal men had been living with a man for years, and was not yet married to him because the father raised an objection. Such a state of things would be virtually impossible among the Ibo, it appears to be considered rather disgraceful…

History:Where the Igbo’s monogamists in principle?

History:Where the Igbo’s monogamists in principle?

Whilst polygamy is recognised as an integral part of the social economy of the Ibos, yet in actual fact one wife only is specifically acknowledged. In native law the first wife alone is granted the position and rights of a legal wife. She alone bears the title of “Anasi” and, in virtue thereof, is accorded a measure of respect vastly superior to that given to any of the additional wives. Her standing also endows her…

The Igbo: Firm believers in equality of all peoples

Olaudah Equiano, an Igbo, is believed to have written the first anti-slavery narrative. “The Interesting Narrative of the Life of O. Equiano, or G. Vassa, the African” was published in 1780, promoting the cause for abolition of human commerce. Olaudah was born in what is now known as Nigeria and became a slave at the age of 11. He was the son of an Igbo nobleman in Igboland, not the son of a slave. After…

CALL FOR ACTION: HELP HAITI

The hurricane was the strongest to hit the region in a decade. It kept up its hurricane strength with winds of at least 110mph (177km/h) for seven days. In Haiti, the poorest country in Latin America, it destroyed tens of thousands of homes, leaving more than 60,000 people staying in temporary shelters. The UN’s humanitarian co-ordinator in Haiti, Mourad Wahba, said: “We are not far from having one million people who are in urgent need…
