Factshunter:


All I have to say is that the tribes/people that comprise the Niger Delta( SS actually) ' must watch their back and never allow the " We the SE/SE " to take advantage of them, rule over them, or rule over them within or without Nigeria lest they are swallowed up along with their God-given natural resources and wealth. No one has the right to decide for them, tell them what they are or not- it's insulting and downgrading to say to them that who is, what's SS, some part of their lands belongs to certain people which is a common saying and provocative words among ibo group of people especially here on NL.

Those people have every right to live and be who they choose to be...with, and not be looked down on as if they are some sort of weakening or people without origin.

I stand with the people of SS . cool
I rest my case.

Edited. cool
By the way, Ibos are just like the SS people comprising of various tribes, below is confirmed

Thanks.
Those are called Geopolitical zones for a reason. This creation has made , for example, an Ikwere man to see an Igbo man more of an enemy because the latter does not belong to South-South, despite both being neighbours. Because of the 'South-South' created by some people in power (and not the forefathers of the different ethnic groups) to probably create discord with the Igbos; thus, Binni man is considered more as a brother to same Ikwere man just because they are in the virtual entrapment of the so called Geopolitical zone.
Should Nigeria divide with NigerDelta having their country, from the look of things the emerging country will be as present Nigeria. There will be much power tussle and the unification in language will pose a challenge.
In developed countries, for example Germany, there are regions that still have their dialects different from Deutsch. For example, the Bavaria core indigenes speak differently, but that doesn't take away German as their official language. What will be the official language for the South-South?
However, if Nigerians division will bring peace without bloodshed, then so be it, irrespective of the number of pieces it splits.

The Igbos are a tribe in both SE and SS and part of MB. Please what tribe is Niger Delta, since you self identify as Yoruba?

First of all I am not an IPOB member neither do I consider Kanu my leader.

But one thing I know about IPOBs policy on this is that they have always said that a referendum will decide those who will eventually be in Biafra.
They recognize that the word BIAFRA, is co-owned by the ethnic groups of the eastern region, and in like manner, those ethnic groups have the right to decide whether they want to be part of physical Biafra or not, hence their preference of referendum that will give everyone and every ethnic group, the opportunity to decide..

Personally over the past few years I have moved from preferring an all-encompassing Biafra containing all the ethnic groups of the eastern region, to now preferring just an Igbo nation comprising of Igbos in the SE, Benue and Igbos in all the SS states.

With regards to alleged massacres of SS people by SE people, it remains unsubstantiated. At least provide documents by internationally reputable organisation like Red Cross, alleging this, if you cannot give the military unit or the Biafran unit commander involved e.t.c

'cause I saw a thread and I was awondered at how these IPOB denied every single fact that was told to them about their killings of "minority" tribes!

https://www.nairaland.com/6536757/remembering-isheagu-massacre-

the West know we committed atrocities and have always apologized and are ready to apologize all over again
in fact prominent Yoruba soldiers helped Ojukwu(we were large neutral during the war)

it is not a crime not to be "many"!
the decision of a people~no matter how "small" should not be trampled upon!
we all know that that war was fought for oil
and see where the 'oil' has taken us to!

God help the Tribes of the Niger Delta!
God help the people of Niger area!
God help Africa!

The way I see it is that Nigeria has failed beyond redemption and a referendum should be held in the SE/SS area to determine who wants to be a Biafran.

Its not for any ethnic group to decide for another where they should be, a referendum will accord everyone the opportunity to decide for themselves. That is democracy

Let me set the record straight. I am not a supporter of Nnamdi Kanu’s version of biafra which includes non igbos in it. I and so many other like me have made it clear on this forum multiple times.

Second, niger delta is a made up entity. It doesn’t mean anything in the grand scheme of things. Those who abandon their African identity to claim Niger delta are in for a hard awakening.

Enough said.
the name biafra is it an igbo word? is biafra not portuguese name? igbo person is always a foolish person.

No, you don't get it.

It's better you have your country no matter how small than considering using same European-instilled structure that created Nigeria to create a South-South country. Moreover, look at the map, and tell me how Edo state is more South-South than Abia State geographically.
