It has been almost 9 years that the Lion of Biafra passed on. This is my tribute to him
Eze Igbo gburu-gburu, Ikemba Nnewi, Dike na agha.
When all others chose to bow to the caliphate, you chose to stand up and declare the freedom of your people
When all others chose the easy route of slavery, you rose up like a man to lead your people in a war of liberation
Despite being outnumbered, outgunned and under very difficult situations, you kept the dream of an independent home land for your people alive for 3 years
You fought when others surrendered without a fight, you stood up when others kneeled, you went for freedom when others went for slavery.
Today, you have been vindicated. Nigeria turned out to be what you said it would be, an unworkable failed state.
You failed in your mission to get us freedom but nobody can deny you did your best
Adieu Ohamadike, 9 years on.
