-Biafra can not be fought with guns, knives or nuclear bomb.
-No amount of force can kill the Biafra spirit.
-Government should rather embrace dialogue in resolving national issues.
Pastor Chris Okafor, of Mountain of Liberation and miracle ministry has said Biafra is a spirit and cannot be killed with any physical weapon or efforts including guns, arrows, or even a nuclear bomb.
Speaking in the light of the recent Independence Day celebration of the country, the pastor urged the federal government to use dialogue to resolve issues in the country rather than take to force and threats.
The Pastor was however quick to point out that he wants the unity of Nigeria but wants government to treat its citizens fairly.
According to him, “Our Government needs to learn how to resolve issues with dialogue. No amount of time or resources expended towards dialogue is a waste. ‘’
‘’This is not 1967. Anybody who thinks that they can kill an agitation like Biafra with force is truly living in fools’ paradise. It can never happen! Biafra is a spirit. Wasn’t it Ojukwu who started it? He’s gone but Biafra is still here.’’

‘’You can’t kill a spirit with guns and arrows, not even with a nuclear bomb. If Ojukwu’s exit did not kill the agitation, how can any human being think or believe that Nnamdi Kanu’s exit will kill the agitation.’’
“As a matter of fact, more people have now joined the agitation and mark my words, worst people than Nnamdi Kanu will soon emerge-they are already there and nobody knows how peaceful those ones will be.”
“We should behave like a 21st century constitutional entity and stop using force to do everything. Dialogue is the only way out and the Government of the day must take advantage now.”
