Barrister Austin Okeke Writes From South Africa

He is alive, He is alive, Jesus is Alive.

These were the words of the first disciplines of Jesus Christ when they noticed that the stone at the entrance to the tomb where Jesus had been buried, had been rolled away and the tomb empty.

They tried to bury Jesus Christ for good, they didn’t know he was a Seed that will germinate and live on forever. His fame went viral.

Some believers had sighted Jesus in Jerusalem even before his resurrection was made official in the upper room; this was when He subsequently appeared to the Apostles and disciples. Peace be upon you,

He said to them. He assured them that He is the same person yesterday, today and tomorrow.

I am the Resurrection and Life. Be not afraid.

Nnamdi Kanu, the Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra was recently sighted in the same Jerusalem, he was praying at the Western Wall in the holy city.

Similarly, those that sighted him were in awe of him. With silent authority and charisma, he caused calm and peace to be upon them.

The aura of Nnamdi Kanu “Ebubedike” could be felt even in the video, how much more with the video man and those around him at the time.

The one whose voice was on the background of the video was evidently shaken; one could tell from the wobbly way he started to narrate and explain to the world that Nnamdi Kanu lives.

In his absence, many of his so-called friends spoke ill of him.

When Jesus Christ was arrested, some of his Apostles and Disciples denied him, while others gloated in his sudden disappearance, and his eventual death.

Similarly, with Nnamdi Kanu, those with which they set out together for this noble cause, went about celebrating his disappearance and presumption of death.

Some even started what they called “phase 2” of the struggle.

Jesus Christ came for the salvation of His people.

Not a penny more, not a penny less. Anything outside the salvation of His people, to Him, is not acceptable. He gave His life for this cause. A Divine cause it is. A sacrifice that has no end.

Divinity is priceless.

Similarly, Nnamdi Kanu has demonstrated that anything short of the freedom of the people of Biafra is not negotiable. He has given his life up for this noble cause. It is a daunting sacrifice for anyone to undertake.

Nobility is invaluable.

During the period Jesus Christ was around, and preaching His gospel; only very few people believed in Him until His death and resurrection.

Similarly, before Nnamdi Kanu’s disappearance, not everyone believed in his message until his sudden appearance.

In all the two instances, the Pharisees, the Sadducees and some cluster of the so-called leaders and elite at the time, plotted endlessly against Jesus Christ.

They eventually handed him over to the Pontus Pilate to be crucified, in the place of Barabas a notorious criminal at the time.

Similarly with Nnamdi Kanu, the present day Pharisees Sadducees and the so-called leaders and elite are,  the political leadership of South Eastern Nigeria; the leader of the Socio-Cultural body Ohaneze Ndigbo; the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party “the PDP” caucus in the South Eastern Nigeria, APGA, and the All Progressive Congress “the APC” which also is the ruling political party for the time being, in the geographical area currently known as Nigeria; and others who have gone to constitute various entities representing different interests groups, contrary to the interests of the people of Biafra.

Let’s call them, the cluster of misleaders.

They conspired and handed Nnamdi Kanu to the Pontus Pilate “Buhari “ to be slaughtered on the altar of betrayal.

Buhari misfired.

Of course, his failure to eliminate Nnamdi Kanu didn’t come as a surprise to all his contemporaries because they all know him to always fail in the classrooms and in all assignments, both local and national. They have said this to us numerous times, we’re not there of course. Just that Buhari has lived up to expectations. A failure that is.

The present-day Pharisees, Sadducees and the so-called leaders selfishly sacrificed Nnamdi Kanu for the Barabas of our time; theses Barabas are themselves.

They are notorious for stealing and robbing their own people of not only their commonwealth but also of their future.

They have occupied their different offices and positions for a very long time without having anything to show for it.

They gluttonously enrich their private pockets insatiably. They are bloated and have lost their senses, to say the least.

This was indicative of their shameless conducts recently, when Atiku Abubakar, the PDP Presidential candidate nominated Peter “Okwute” Obi as his running mate in the elections next year.

Which election has been carefully planned to oust the Pontus Pilate “Buhari must go” is an everyday mantra everywhere you go to in Nigeria these days.

He is lifeless and can no longer function.

He is like a python who has swallowed an unsuspecting prey and now cannot move as a result of his bloated stomach.

There now is a reversal of fortune. as the python has suddenly become the prey whose head and body must be chopped to pieces.

The cluster of misleaders, quickly revolted against the popular choice of Peter Obi, just like the Apostles and Disciples of Jesus Christ, after His death, kicked against the leadership of Saint Peter.

On this rock I will build my church, Jesus had confirmed before his death. The revolt was an exercise in futility.

Similarly, with Peter Obi, his fate had long been sealed. The cluster of misleaders has no such power to change it.

In fact, just like the Pharisees and the Sadducees, the cluster of misleaders are fast losing relevance in the South Eastern region of Nigeria.

They must be held to account.

People have seen them for what they are. People are now baying for their blood.

Let’s go back to Nnamdi Kanu.

It was only after the death of Jesus Christ that he gained uncountable followers.

Nnamdi Kanu has since his disappearance, gained more followers than ever before. His fame has also gone viral.

Followers from the unlikely regions of Nigeria, such as the Middle Belt, South West, the North West and North East of Nigeria. Up to the Southern Cameroon who is now asking to secede.

Jesus Christ Parables and Words of wisdom and life are often quoted by Christians and non-Christians alike.

Similarly, with Nnamdi Kanu, leaders of various regions and groups in Nigeria are quick to quote him and make references to his bravery whenever there is need to justify their points for wanting to secede or to restructure Nigeria.

Ohamadike, the Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra has been sighted in the holy city of Jerusalem.

The same place our Lord Jesus Christ was sighted after His resurrection and before He became famous. A similar fate awaits Nnamdi Kanu.

Jesus Christ is known as the “Lion of Judah”

The one whose voice was on the background of the video evidence of the sighting of Nnamdi Kanu called him “the Lion of Biafra”

Jesus Christ sole mission is the salvation of His people.

After His resurrection, He didn’t go about seeking vengeance against those that betrayed him. He forgave them and moved on with His sole mission. All the traitors and unbelievers need do is to repent and follow Him.

Similarly, with Nnamdi Kanu, the sole occupation of his mind is the freedom of his people.

The cluster of misleaders should kindly note that they are the least of Nnamdi Kanu’s worries.

All they need do is repent.

I thank you.
