This just came in from a fellow Naijapal, I thought I should share it on here, read it below.

Quote
My friend and some of his colleagues left Lagos for Anambra state yesterday for his traditional wedding which will be taking place today at his wife to be home town.
They hired a bus which will take them down to the exact place they are going and also bring them back. According to my friend, he told me that they arrived Asaba-Onitsha road that linked to Onitsha main bridge as early as 1pm yesterday but couldn't access the bridge due to Biafran protesters. He said the entire bridge was taken over by Biafran protesters and the only way to access the bridge is to hang Biafra flag on your vehicle and all passengers are forced to buy Biafra flags, fly it and shout Biafran before they can be allowed to pass through a public bridge which was built by the federal government which they want to break out from.
As if that's not enough, my friend told me how embarrassed he was in the midst of his colleagues from other tribes seeing how his people are behaving like touts forcing people to shout Biafra against their will. Pls, is this a peaceful protest?
Not only did they stop at that, he narrated that the driver of the bus they hired was also forced to curb out a whole N5,000 as contribution to Biafra struggle else, his bus will be panel-beaten to a different shape. So also were all other bus and car owners forced to pay money, buy Biafra flags and shout Biafra before they were allowed to cross the Onitsha-Asaba head bridge. Is this not madness mixed with some high dose of stupidity? Forcing people against their will is not only madness but criminal and the Police need to wake up and deal with this touts using maximum force and if the Police are finding this situation difficult to manage, the military should pls take over and apply all force within their power to bring this situation under control.
We can't have a different country flying a different national flag inside a sovereign nation. That's a criminal offence or at best its a "treasonable felony".
My friend said, they managed to cross the Onitsha-Asaba head bridge which ordinarily is suppose to take them less than 10min, took them over 7hours while shouting "Biafra" and flying Biafra flag against their will as they pass slowly on Onitsha-Asaba head bridge.
Though, am happy that Biafrans are now grounding their economy by blocking all roads leading to their region, closing shops of all traders that boost their economy, sending bad message to potential investors both foreign and local and making lives unbearable to their fellow brothers. Who dem dey do? No be me but themselves!!!
Many Igbos living abroad are cheering this gullible Biafra protesters via the internet with beautiful articles but this Igbos abroad are not suffering and passing the pains those in Nigeria are passing through now. If the worse happen, none of them will be affected as they are all domiciled in foreign lands but the gullible ones will be the one that will die for no just cause?

Extorting money. How do they expect anyone to take them seriouly?  Buying and flying a flag does not equal support.

Forcing traders to close up shop and disrupting the life of other citizens. Also with their action they are BLOCKING access to hospitals and schools.

What will they do with the money they are extorting from innocent people?

If it is true then you know that they are not biafrans but using Biafra name to steal,as nnamdi KANU used Biafra to change some of them not to believe IN JESUS CHRIST again! I'm a Biafra but not with nnamdi KANU because he is anti-christ!

The Belive of all those Jobless Biafrans is that when they get their own country  enough BIAFRAN CURRENCIES will be printed and destributed to all of them including the benefits of all the CRUDE OIL in their region and none of them will be poor again but they dont know that the real Leaders of the Biafra like Nnamdi Kanu are just doing this for political power and how to be top leaders of a new country in an Easy way and they will make a lot of promises they cant fufil to the poor. They dont have the brain to Understand that all comon men in Nigeria are passing through the same suferness and the political advantage in the North and West did not make make the comon men Enjoy life more thern the comon men in the Easth part of the country. ITS JUST A GREEDY AGITATION AND FIGHT FOR POLITICAL POWER THAT WILL HELP PEOPLE LIKE NNAMDI KANU BECOME PRESIDENT VERY EASY BUT THE SITUATION OF THE POOR WILL NEVER CHANGE.....

I think is high time the governors of South Eastern States make a statement to their people
    because the Igbos known group had said that they aren't in support of Biafra agitation and
    believe in one Nigeria.

Shut the phyuk up! It's called BORDER CONTROL! Why would you be allowed into another country with a Nigerian identity? #IStandWithBiafra.

Shut the phyuk up and stop crying over a spilled milk! It's called BORDER CONTROL! Why would you be allowed into another country with a Nigerian identity without fulfilling other requirements? #IStandWithBiafra.
