Let me give you a brief history of how this national army came to be because I see some of you think I opened a group and started like all the groups out there. No, BNG is not a group, it’s a mandate directly sanctioned by late Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu himself when he was alive.
When I left Nigerian army to answer the call or respond to the letter my people sent to me. I was first in 1999 contracted to train MASSOB security, which i did and from then, all MASSOB security personnel fell in love with me. Gradually, it began to dawn on me that I must leave Nigerian army.
I was later uncovered by the Nigerian army leadership for aiding MASSOB and was arrested. I was detained in military guardroom in my barracks, awaiting to be court marshalled by the military leadership but with the help of God and soldiers loyal to me, I escaped from detention and came back home to fully engage in this freedom walk.
I took over the reign of MASSOB security and formed special force called B. Commandos. We moved on well but were lacking the requisite independence needed to deliver objectives. MASSOB leadership wanted to assume total control of the security. Using security personnel to hunt opposition and fight their internal battles. I kicked against this and fought against it. I am a different breed and not their regular civilian security brouhaha. So, you cannot ride on me, I am too experienced and gallant to be toyed with in area of military.
I began to attract Ojukwu’s attention and from there, I struck a close relationship with Ojukwu. I spoke extensively and in confidence with Ojukwu who gave me assignments that we succeeded 100%. I won Ojukwu’s heart and explained the barriers i was facing in MASSOB.
Ojukwu held my hand and placed it on his chest to say he has found a true son of his. He said one thing to me. “Your Duty Lies On The Field Like Mine Years Back” Ojukwu refused to mediate or speak to Ralph Uwazurike, cos he felt Uwazurike was going the wrong direction and he had found a worthy heir in me. Ojukwu told me only my belief and military stance can restore Biafra. He cuffed out 30million Naira through Ofia Nwali (a second republic senator) for me.
Ojukwu said he has given me his military mandate, that I should break doors because my father sent me. Unfortunately, I surrendered and was detained in 2008 and he couldn’t bear it and lost his life. But I promised Ojukwu that his army would triumph irrespective of the situation we were then.
To ensure Biafra is restored and to also avoid meddling, playing politics and using security to fight internal wars, Ojukwu set out this military you see today. So, BNG wasn’t formed like your normal groups out there. BNG is a mandate we are fighting to uphold. I am the present commander in chief of the 1967 military mandate.
Everybody is free to fall in line and fight for our sovereignty. All groups are free to fall in line under this mandate. We have a civilian-military relationship clause. We need civilians as much as they need us but there is limit to that. In funding and helping the military to succeed in their mission, civilian leaderships have a role to play. BNG cannot rule or lead civilians, we need worthy civilian leadership to do that and it would be determined by the sacrifices made by those civilian leaders. We only have interest in Biafran soldiers and military warfare. In the end, only through barrels of guns shall Biafra be restored.
So, we are open for their role. We accept everybody. BNG under my command will embrace world standard military practice. When talking about groups, remember to count BNG out.
