Lauretta Onochie, who is the Senior Special Assistant on Social Media to President Muhammadu Buhari, has declared that there would never be the ancient Republic of Biafra furthermore. She expressed this not long ago after the reported invasion of the headquarters of the Imo State Police Command and the Correctional Facility in Owerri, which resulted in the discharge of more than 1,800 prisoners and the demolition of automobiles and state properties. Also, the immediate past Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had condemned the men of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) for allegedly masterminding the incident.

Following the occurrence, Lauretta posted a video on her official Twitter page displaying the then Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, receiving the then Biafran Vice President, Major General Philip Effiong, who stimulated the concession of the Republic of Biafra to Nigeria in 1970. Recall that Effiong had accepted the administration of the secessionist government after the original Biafran commander, Colonel Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, escaped to Cote D'Ivoire in the heat of the civil contest.

The media aide to Buhari captioned the video as:

“Relief on the countenances of Philip Effiong second in control to Ojukwu & his people as they relinquish says Never Again Biafra,"

“The happiness on the countenance of the then Head of state Yakubu Gowon says, #OneNigeria." Lauretta went ahead to say that those were the day's nails were put in the coffin of Biafra and as such there would never be Biafra again, stressing the 'Never. I want to take you down memory lane by reminding you that In May 1967, discontentment over the Nigerian State and pursuit for autonomy made Colonel Chukwuemeka Ojukwu announce the exit of the Biafran State from the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The then Biafran province virtually encompassed major towns and cities in the Southeast and Southwest regions of Nigeria.

The civil war lasted for about three years as the Nigerian State strived to reconcile and unify the soul of the country using state and military powers. The civil war came to a halt in January 1970 with the Southeast region restored to Nigeria. Nevertheless, years later, secessionist campaigns resurfaced in the same Southeast. The craze, this time, has been advocated by the commander of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The Buhari-led administration did well by condemning the group in September 2017. And Nnamdi Kanu was even apprehended and was on trial but was later released from the Kuje Prison in Abuja after fulfilling bail requirements. Kanu later disappeared from Nigeria and has been managing the affairs of IPOB from abroad.

As if all the things Nnamdi were not bad enough, IPOB created Eastern Security Network which has no support from the Southeast governors and security agencies. Now, that the presidency has said there will never be Biafra again, what do you think?.
