Chief Evans Tubonah
Nigeria is our beloved country and we have lived in peace since we inherited her from our forefathers.
When you look at Nigeria, if you have a positive mindset you will appreciate the works of the colonial masters who amalgamated our various communities and ethnic nationalities to such a great nation that is known all over the world as the largest  African nation on planet earth.
That had been a great blessing to those of us who became Nigerians not by ourselves but by the will of God that made us to be. As a people,  we don't have a choice as to which family we have to be born into or which community should be ours, what language should we speak etc.
And that no doubt may be the very reason I, Chief Otonye Evans Tubonah and you Nnamdi Kanu come from different backgrounds, different places. I am an Ijaw man from Nembe, Bayelsa State, Niger Delta, South/South Nigeria, and Nnamdi Kanu, you are an Igbo man and everything about you is just Igbo and that is it, nothing more nothing less  And I don't doubt the fact that your ancestors or forefathers did tell you of your ancestry, as my forefathers and ancestors also did.
That being the truth, you, Nnamdi Kanu could not feign ignorance to the truth that the Igbo People and the Ijaw people are not one. Before the amalgamation, during the amalgamation and from Independence to State and Local Government creation in Nigeria the Igbo and the Ijaw people never sat together to place a demand on any issue, because they are not one.
And Nnamdi Kanu, if you don't know your geographical boundary as an Igbo man and want to claim lands and people of others that have nothing to do with you and your ancestors, it beats my imagination. And I believe, it will also beat  the imagination of every right thinking person  in Nigeria, and people all over the world that the self styled noise making  leader of the Independent People Of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu does not know his boundary.
For the interest of truth and the unity of our God blessed nation, Nigeria, one cannot shy away from calling the erring, IPOB leader, Mr. Kanu that neither Bayelsa State, nor any Ijaw land is part of your 'Republic of Biafra Dream', so you have to stop forthwith embarrassing our people by associating us to your fake, selfish and self seeking imaginations?
Because of your age disadvantage, you may not have witnessed what is called 'Biafra' in the historic Nigerian civil war, so you don't know what happened. You have been making so much noise, using your invisible Radio station, the New Media and the Print Media to create tension in the land and crisis in some parts of the country, but that was not the best approach to whatever a man may desire to have in life.
Nnamdi Kanu, your attempt to include Bayelsa State or any other Ijaw land as 'Biafra' is your misadventure, and you should retrace fast so that you don't become ashamed of the fact that you don't know your boundary, you don't know your people, which means that you don't even know what you are doing, but that is not my worry.
If you say you are the leader of the Igbo people, that you are the leader of the 'who is who' in Igbo land, that has nothing to do with me; if you declare Igbo land whatever Republic and declare yourself the president of the Republic, it has nothing to do with  me, but the advice I have for you is, stop calling Bayelsans and people of the Niger Delta as part of your none existent Republic of Biafra.
Nnamdi Kanu
