Three "Biafrans" have been killed in the latest bloody clashes between the revolutionary separatist activists and the security forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The casualties were reported in Aba and Onitsha.

The political situation in the South East of Nigeria needs to be addressed by the United Nations and the G-8, because the on-going separatist protests by the members of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra(MASSOB), demanding for the release their leader Chief Ralph Uwazuruike have distrupted business activities as markets, shops, offices and banks have been shut since yesterday. And three protesters have been killed and several others have been wounded in the violent disturbances in Aba and Onitsha just across the Niger Bridge.

The UN is always slow to react to such emergencies until the situation becomes worse and then the UN will be running helter-skelter in panic to stop the anarchy and chaos.

We don't have to wait for another civil war to break out in Nigeria before we know that there is a state of emergency in the southern states of Nigeria from the critical situation over the "Wanted" Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, governor of Bayelsa state to the unresolved crisis in Anambra State and the mayhem over Biafra.

The foreign news agencies have been circulating the reports since Nigerian Times published the first information yesterday.

Rather than sending their kindred to their early graves or putting them in economic headlock, these jobless Biafran thugs should redirect their anger and frustration to their leaders.

Their leaders driven by selfish interests have not been able to present a strong and united front to advance the IBO cause.

Almost all the politicians in the IBO enclave wants to be a president these days. actions have brought shame to the office of the senate president. As long as they have rogues like Wabara, unprincipled thugs like Uba, and butt-licking stooges like Ngige in their midst, their cause I'm afraid, is forever doomed.

The MASSOB need to purge the IBO land of the useless political elements in their midst, and other regions of Nigeria need to do the same.

Nigeria has more than its share of trouble. Biafra is dead, buried and forgotten by majority of IBO indigenes except these bunch of misfits.

You spoke my mind intoto.

The sponsors of MASSOB in America and Europe should be prosecuted for their crimes against Nigeria.

I spurned their overtures and one of their top advisers called me names when I told him that I am a nationalist.

They even lacked ordinary common sense.
