      When idiots like you “silk” with a sick mind talks, its obvious that you don’t even have a sense of reasoning. You can only talk about treason when Igbos say or do something. The genocide bloody northern nigeria is committing is not seen as an issue.
      You are a big fool, if don’t recognise people right of freedom.

    I summarized the arrest of members of the Biafran Zionist Movement (BZM) as an abuse of Democracy by the government officers.

    I will like to advice Mr. President and the leaders on the issue “Abuse of Democracy”. There seems to be a great confusion what the word Democracy means. In spite of the fact that at least in some parts of the world one can hear it from the media every day.

    Democracy means the government by people. That means that all the people should be able to have their say in one way another in everything that affects their lives. This right can either be exercised directly (by every member of a community having the possibility to enter personally, without mediators, his position on a particular issue into the decision making process – modern technology is able to provide this possibility for increasingly larger and larger communities), or through representatives (members of legislative bodies).
    Then if 500 members of the Biafran Zionist Movement (BZM) were arrested in Enugu state today as they marched through the streets of the state capital with the hoisted flag and placards bearing ‘Biafra.’What they actually did was a protest and exercise of there right?
    I summarized the arrest of their members as an abuse of Democracy by the government officers and the Citizen or the Movement (BZM) can as well, sued the Government for an abuse of human right under the Democratic system of Government.

    Is there anything wrong in declaration of BIAFRA? The incarceration of 5oo BIAFRANS in ENUGU today is oncalled off, and NIGERIANS INHUMANITY TO BIAFRANS. Nigerian police is only good in violation of human right. But cannot do anything to BOKO HARAM. (Women force) i want to let you know this weather you beleive it or not, these cotraption called nigeria can never remain forever.GOD BLESS FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF BIAFRA AND ALL THOSE FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM.

Vendor’s Widow Disowns Family Over N500m Lawsuit Against Gbajabiamila

Femi Gbajabiamila

Josephine Okereke, wife of the Abuja-based vendor killed by a security aide of Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, has rejected the family’s demand of N500 million compensation.

Okereke while speaking to newsmen on Thursday stated that what she wants is justice for her late husband, and not the compensation being sought by his family.

Recall that some days ago, Ifeanyi, her husband, was shot by Abdullahi Hassan, a Department of State Services (DSS) operative attached to the speaker.

Days after the Speaker promised to ensure justice, the family of the slain vendor wrote the speaker, demanding a N500 million compensation.

Okereke, however, told journalists in Abuja that she was not privy to the N500 million compensation requested by the family.

“I was in my house when within 10 minutes my father-in-law came from Abia, he went out along with his other son and the next day I heard that my husband’s people are demanding N500 million as compensation,” she said.

“I was shocked and asked how will they be doing that and how will the speaker help the children again with such demand. All I want now is that the person that killed my husband to face justice.”
