IPOB Women in Detention: Identity, Age of 114 Incarcerated Pro-Biafra Women Established
These are the faces of our women – daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, grandmothers – who are in unlawful detention and deprivation of their freedom and rights in this 2018 Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the governors, senators, congressmen/women, politicians, traditional rulers, community leaders, legal luminaries, academicians, and professionals of Igbo extraction and identity are enjoying their lives and are keeping quiet, going about their businesses, as if nothing is happening.
“Let not anyone pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.” – John Stuart Mills (1867).
“The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing.” – Edmund Burke (1795).
This is the time for we the Igbo, to ask ourselves the question we are reluctant to ask:
Have we lost our senses, wisdom, power, inner strength, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, have we lost our IGBONESS?
It is the responsibility of Igbo governors and federal and state office holders to condemn in no uncertain terms these unlawful detentions and illegal charging and torturing of our people, men, women, youths, et al.
In addition to openly condemning these illegalities, the Igbo governors, senators, congressmen/women and other political appointees and lgbo leaders must demand the immediate release of these innocent women and all other Igbo that are held in unlawful detention and molestation.
Angling for political appointments and other selfish pursuits in the face of this illegal tyranny against the Igbo is akin to chasing the rat while one’s house is on fire. It is foolish.
Truth is Sacred.
Truth is Constant.
Facts are Sacred.
