Biafra National Guard (BNG) says the
Operation Python Dance II, to be carried out by the Nigerian Army in the
South-east was targeted at Nnamdi Kanu and other agitators.
A statement Wednesday morning by
self-styled ‘Major Nkuma’, said BNG knew that the operation “is a show
of force and genocide intention which has already started”.
It, however, said the Army should be
prepared for BNG warning that its the leadership of General Innocent
Orji was ready for war.
The statement reads “We fear not; we
dine, sleep and live hostility and will defend our lives. BNG continues
to make it loud and clear that Biafra needs activation of self defense
as enshrined in UN 2007 charter to restore Biafra and that is what BNG
“Our commander; General Innocent Orji
does not subscribe to defenseless agitation which is suicidal in
Nigeria, but to continue on the path of non-violence, Nigeria must
withdraw lethal force which might be impossible because we are
considered slaves that deserve death. Our commander knows the terrain of
self defense as enshrined in 2007 UN Charter on the rights of
“As we continue to make it clear; self
defense is due because our people have continued to face death,
threatened with suicide, promised to be crushed by Buhari and the leader
of Indigenous People of Biafra whom BNG is saddled with responsibility
of defending has come under severe threat as well.
“The people of Biafra and her leadership
fully support the decision of Biafra National Guard because we are not
violent agitators but out to stop the unlawful killing of our people.
Biafra National Guard is not a violent group rather Nigerian military is
violent to our people; killing and maiming us and BNG is an outfit
designed to curb the wanton killing of Biafrans. We have never been
violent in any shape or form; but would resist unlawful killing of our
“Operation Python Dance I- was formerly
launched in Oct 27 through Nov 27 2017 which purportedly targeted
kidnappers but the recent launch according to Major General David Ahmadu
targets violent agitators and the question is, what violence is there
in Southeast? The Nigerian military must understand that Biafra National
Guard values life and respect human rights.
“Unlike Nigerian military that find
strength against unarmed and peaceful civilians; we the Biafra National
Guard find strength against unlawful hostile, undisciplined,
happy-trigger soldiers that violate human rights, crush peaceful and
law-abiding citizens. Operation Python Dance II in Southeast is a show
of cowardice; BNG is not Southeast movement but Biafra military wing.
“The blood of the people of Biafra makes
the python dance and merry; our molestation makes the python happy and
laugh. Road blocks in Biafra make the python dance and party round,
throw money like politicians. Raping our women makes the python dance
but very soon Biafra National Guard shall make the python shade tears by
denying the python the evil deeds that makes it dance.
“Northern Nigeria under the leadership
of Arewa consultative forum obviously declared genocide against us; made
genocide song, threatened us with quit notice and no single operation
was launched in Northern Nigeria to defend our people. Nobody demanded
account or investigated the act; nobody launched road blocks, nobody
raided and not a single army was seen loitering in the North.
“Everything was okay because people that
deserved death were to get it; even if Python Dance X (10) will be
declared because Biafra National Guard vowed self defense, let them go
on. If Nigerian military is fit; they should crush Boko Haram and not
civilian populace. This python dance should be well informed that the
days BNG was away are over.
“Fulani herdsmen have been killing our
people and raping our women; attacking us in our worship centers and
destroying our farms and nobody including the Nigerian military launched
any operation to checkmate this terrorist organization sponsored by
Buhari and Britain but just the moment Biafra National Guard declared
that they won’t fold arms while their people are murdered on daily
basis, Buhari and Britain launched operation Python Dance II. We refuse
to continue to be species of terror; we shall defend ourselves, our
women, our farm and our worship places against unconstitutional acts.
“Britain is responsible for the
launching of Operation Python Dance II; they want to keep depopulating
us and keep us under slavery to have unlimited access to our natural
resources. Britain must be held responsible in advent of full blown war
because we shall defend ourselves.
“The genocide being orchestrated by
Britain in Biafra land; there is the need for other world leaders to
beam their searchlight in Biafra as to bring Britain to justice. Since
1967; it has been this way but the end of the road is today.
“The Russian federation, USA under the
leadership of just-Trump and Israel must make up for their silence
between 1967 and 1970 genocide against the peaceful people of Biafra,
they looked on while their precious and natural allies perished in the
cold hands of Britain.
“We have moved on and mankind has moved
on but never again shall we go back to 1967 monumental sheer wickedness
against humanity. Biafra National Guard is ready to restore and defend
the sovereign state of Biafra.
“Finally; Biafra National Guard uses
this medium to call on Biafra political class to do what is essential
because time is ticking and there must be accounting. The people of
Biafra and her leadership must urgently support and pray for her
military wing because BNG is the pride of the people and the backbone of
the leadership of the people of Biafra under Nnamdi Kanu whom the
people have chosen.
