Yinka. Ba waeriya. (Good Night) ~ by Annkio Briggs
I am short of words yet I must find the words….. Yet I must speak.
I met you as a Comrade on a Hired Coaster Bus In Port Harcourt a few days after the Odi Genocide on our way to visit Odi invited by Oronto.
We became Friends and a Brother and Sister in Our Determination to say NO to Injustice and Slavery.
We have worked together with many others in and out of Nigeria for Justice and Freedom.
You will always be missed but never forgotten. Your spirit will always speak in radio and Television Studios and on pages of News papers in Nigeria until we take Justice and Freedom.
The Great People of the Yoruba Nation Will Miss the Love and Commitment you carried for them.
I wish you are here to see Justice and Freedom of the South and Middle Belt for it will come, l understood, learned, and appreciated a lot from you.
l thank you for not just understanding the Struggle of the Ethnic Nationalities of the Niger Delta but for supporting and encouraging our demands.
The attempt to go against the Constitution in 2010 by political and economic cabal, the 2014 National Conference and other instances were the game changers but in the future when the History of Justice and Freedom will be told your name will be written in Gold and encrusted in sparkling diamonds.
My Comrade, Friend and Star of the Yoruba Nation, the fight for justice and freedom need you but you have fought your quota we will continue and deliver victory to our people, children and their future.
Rest On Comrade, Friend and Brother.
God give your wife, comrade, and friend Joe, the strength she will need to carry on.
Convener, Niger Delta Self Determination Movement (NDSDM)
