Bayelsa Community Marks "Day Of Resistance" Against Biafran Soldiers by emmatok(m): 8:07pm On Oct 20, 2014
october 19th of every year is a day seen as a "liberation day" for the Tungbo clan in the Sagbama area of Bayelsa State, as they mark the Ebe-Benimo-Oge Festival to remember when their gods saved them from the hands of Biafran soldiers who had wanted to wipe out the entire community for leaking information of the Biafra Operation Camp in Tungbo to the Nigerian army during the Nigerian civil war of 1967.

Highlights of the festival include firing of cannon shots to declare the festival open, the appearance of the traditional war boats, a re-enactment of the days where the boats served as war armory to convene warriors to the battle grounds, wrestling bouts among able young men, and a sacrifice to a crocodile, which is the Tungbo's symbol of power and authority. The people believe that no crocodile can hurt them so they revere it.

More Picture from the Festival

TANiods viewing everything in the lens of Jonathan's ambition. Now they even want the Ijaw Nation to forget their heritage, Valour and Victories.

So the people of Bayelsa should stop their festivals and heritage because it hurts the feelings of their opponents from the war? Do you know how many lives they may have lost in the war before achieving the victory celebrated today?.

Is it not funny that Strangers are pretending to Love Jonathan more than his "Blood Brothers". The festival, do not still stop them from voting whoever they want.

TANiods are Jonathan's biggest enemies with their full display of low mental dispositions.

Roll out the Ikoro, let the celebration bring! grin grin grin
