Breaking the Veil in Abi LGA Cross River State; We Are Biafrans



January 26, 2020

By Nelson Bond | Biafra Writers

The unwavering quest for Biafra by the people of Cross River state is on the rise as the mobilizing team of the state chapter of IPOB has embarked on yet another successful visitation to the land of Ediba in Abi. The team was led by the state coordinator.

It was the first inaugural meeting of IPOB in Abi LGA, and was graced by Biafran war veterans, men and women of goodwill, youths and traditional rulers in the community. The acting coordinator of the area, Chief Udom, who was appointed the chairman of the elder’s forum, Abi LGA, expressed his gratitude for the long-awaited visit from the state EXCOS and the mobilizing team. He told the state team how the people of Abi have longed for such a time they could be identified with the state body. He recalled his ordeals during the genocidal war visited upon Biafra, highlighting numerous reasons Cross River State would continue to be part of Biafra despite the ignorance and misinformation being spread by gullible indigenes.

The state coordinator gave special thanks to the formidable indigenous people of the land for embracing IPOB and its fight for the restoration of Biafra. He assured them that Biafra is at hand, charging them to continue spreading the good news of redemption. He equally spelt out the various position involved in the running of IPOB activities.

Speaking after him, the state chairman of elder’s forum, Chief Okon, expressed joy over the turnout of elderly men and women for the sake of IPOB and Biafra freedom. He, however, encouraged the group to continue in the good step, charging the elders to function as the backbone of IPOB to motivate the youths.

The meeting progressed with the national coordinator, Mazi Ikechukwu Ugwuoha, speaking to the gathered Biafrans through the phone. Ugwuoha charged the Abi family to cooperate with the state leadership and to always ask questions when necessary. Furthering his speech, he encouraged them to be strong and formidable because Biafra is by the corner, adding that they will never be at the losing side when Biafra comes.

The people of Abi, happy with the visit and the items the state mobilizing team gifted them, took oath of allegiance as is customary with IPOB, declaring their support for the total restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra.

Amotekun: The Last Straw that Broke the Camel's Back



January 26, 2020

By Christopher O Evans | Biafra Writers

Nigerians will pretend to be unaware until you hit the limit of absurdities. Nearly five years now they sheepishly followed Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) and allowed him to revel in the gale of dominant and untouchable warrior. He privatized, Muslimized, northernized, and fulanized governance with brazen impunity. The southwest have answered him with Amotekun. Then his fulanized supreme court responded with yet another spurious verdict on Imo state election petitions.

The apex court created its own results by which it delivered a ruling in which the number of votes exceeded the number of accredited voters. It delivered that verdict to confirm to Nigerians that the man Buhari foisted on the apex court lacked basic knowledge of arithmetic. He was a sharia judge. Tongues are wagging. Masses are out on the streets protesting. But beyond the entire abracadabra lies the evident truth that Nigerians have taken a stand to resist the tyrant.

The southwest spoke with Amotekun. Just yesterday a team of Monarchs from both the hinterland and riverine areas of Biafra who paid a condolence visit to the home of the Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra,  IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, spoke boldly in support of Biafra. They seem fed up with being treated as second rate in their own homes. Prof. Itse Sagay, if anyone has noticed, has recently been voicing displeasure over the mistreatment of southern Nigeria. The cookies are crumbling.

The Buhari government has helped in no small measures to advance the course of IPOB. Any southerner who is yet to realize that we have been enslaved all the while by the Fulani north must be an irredeemable moron. The west is not going back on Amotekun, and the east is not going back on the independent state of Biafra. The first step to self-reliant state is to have a strong military. The southwest just inaugurated its own army.

Second is to orientate that army and equip it. Third is to call for a peaceful negotiated exit, or you call the bluff of the authority. You are able to defend yourself.

Things are moving so fast now, and the new independent Biafra may come sooner than we imagined. We have to get ready. We have to start working on the development and industrialization blueprints. We have to start working on what kind of military and police force we want. We have to start mapping out the region and how to hit the ground running. We have to start working on what kind of education we want for our children. We must not be caught unprepared.

In one of my previous articles, I asserted that the coming of Biafra is now inevitable. Nigeria’s breakup is imminent. The losers will be northern Nigeria. However much they have taken out of the southern region cannot help it. Boko Haram, Fulani herdsmen, and bandits – terrorist organizations now assembled as Jihad army for Islamic conquest of the south – will turn around to destroy the north.

Biafra will survive because it will be led by a liberator, not a politician. The liberator who lost both parents in the course of the struggle would want to prove a point by taking Biafra to the summit of economic, technology and military power. He would want nothing else.

Nigeria Government Financing Terror



January 25, 2020

By Christopher O Evans | Biafra Writers

Evidence abound that Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) government supports terror organizations. First, before he became the president of Nigeria, he was the most vocal advocate of Boko Haram. He attacked the then President Goodluck Jonathan for fighting Boko Haram. Recall that Buhari was quoted by Newsday as declaring the killing of Boko Haram members a declaration of war against the north. He was such a passionate defender of the terror group.

In one of his statements in support of the insurgent’s crude attacks, he addressed the Boko Haram sect as "our misguided brethren," and urged Jonathan's government to begin negotiations with the terror group with an aim to granting them amnesty. Many would still remember that Buhari was emotionally vexed against Yar'dua for granting amnesty to Niger Delta militants. He felt paying N65,000 monthly to repentant militants was cheating to the north. Shortly after his vituperations against amnesty to Niger Delta militants, which helped to significantly lower the spate of attacks in that region, Boko Haram emerged. Many believe Boko Haram is a creation of the north, particularly Buhari, to try to force amnesty payments to northern youths to even the deal.

 Soon as Buhari began preaching and advocating amnesty to Boko Haram, Jonathan expressed willingness to negotiate. But with whom? Jonathan insisted he cannot start a negotiation with faceless persons. Boko Haram then named Buhari to negotiate on their behalf. The significance of the choice of him by Boko Haram is never lost even though he turned it down. Following what looked like imminent monthly amnesty payouts to Boko Haram, northern youths were encouraged to enroll as terror members in order to access the funds. Recruitment centers were opened all over the north. Jonathan, however, didn't follow through because nobody came up to speak for the group. Buhari, originally retired from politics, jumped in back after Yar'dua offered amnesty to Niger Delta militants. His all-consuming passion has always been to right the perceived wrongs against the north. He felt Yar'dua was giving away too much to the south and attacked him every step of the way.

Buhari is a hardcore Islamic fundamentalist who believes in the old Usman Dan Fodio vision of conquering the whole nation for Allah until he dips the Qur'an in the Atlantic ocean.

So what has Buhari done with power upon grasping it?

1. He took his time to appoint military chiefs, all of whom are Fulani Muslims. He ensured that Fulani took over the police, the immigration, the customs, and all internal securities. He ensured that Fulani took over the NNPC and every lucrative government enterprise in the country.

2. The military underwent the orientation: “Don't kill Boko Haram.” Since his coming to power the military stopped killing Boko Haram. All that you hear is Boko Haram killing soldiers.

3. He struck a deal with Boko Haram which ensures the continuous inflow of hundreds of millions of dollars into the terrorists’ coffers. Under him, Boko Haram are no longer faceless. Consider the speed with which he contacted Boko Haram over Dapchi schoolgirls abduction. The girls were gratuitously returned to Dapchi by Boko Haram themselves amid cheers in less than 24hours. That he has their numbers cannot be argued. He graciously allowed them to keep Leah Sharibu, and allegedly doled out over $500m in ransom. 

4. Fulani herdsmen began to flaunt assault weapons openly, becoming emboldened. They could raze down Christian communities, leaving trail of gruesome massacres while the military and police provide them with cover to ensure reprisal attacks didn't happen. Then they would address press conference to own up the killings and promise more while flanked by the Nigerian police.

5. Buhari refused to acknowledge Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen are terrorists despite such designation by the world terror index. He argued that the Fulani herdsmen are a sociocultural organization in the mold of Ohaneze and Afenifere, and solicited for their respect.

6. He has rewarded the Fulani militias to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

7. He has freed hundreds of detained terrorists.

8. He has been recruiting the freed terrorists into the army and other of the country’s security forces even as Boko Haram continues abducting and killing Christians.

If Buhari is not a terrorist, who is he? What name do you give someone who ordered military-killing campaigns against IPOB youths for peacefully agitating for the right to self-determination? What do you call a murderer of the innocent, and protector of criminals and bloodsuckers?

Buhari is living his dream of conquering other tribes for his religion, but what he can never achieve is to stop Biafra from coming. God is turning all his evil plans to Biafra's favor. The whole country is beginning to get Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's message. The southwest, PANDEF, IPOB, are all up on their feet now. The great resistance will soon begin. The zoo is about to collapse.

Britain support for genocide remains the same, from Nigeria to Yemen

About 2 million civilians died in the Nigerian-Biafran war - many of them children -from starvation and disease. The war for Biafran independence lasted from July 6, 1967, to Jan. 15, 1970


January 23, 2020 | The Biafra Times

By Robert Inlakesh

More than 50 years now since the Biafran/Nigerian civil war, Britain is again backing a genocidal force against a national liberation movement. Showing that the British policy of endorsing weaponized man-made famine and indiscriminate bombings of civilians has remained exactly the same. Sending a strong message to the world that the UK government willingly participates in what many consider to be genocidal military adventurism.

On January 15, 1970, the Nigerian civil war officially ended after three years of untold horrors. The war was fought against Biafran separatists, who sought to fulfill their nation-state aspirations, and the Nigerian government, which was run by puppets installed by the British. Due to the British interests in Nigeria, the UK government instantly stood behind the Nigeria government forces.

The UK stood by as the first-ever fully televised, man-made famine was broadcast to the world. The tactic of famine was weaponized by the UK’s puppet government in Nigeria as a means of applying pressure on the Biafran opposition. In its entirety, the famine was estimated to have mass-murdered roughly around one million ethnic Igbo-Biafrans. Not only, however, was it famine that was used as a means of illegal warfare but also indiscriminate bombings of civilian population centers. To give an indication of how extreme the warfare was, within the space of the three-year war, Nigeria used more small arms ammunition than the Western-allied forces did in all of WWII.

The British link to the genocidal act of weaponized famine was clear to all, so much so that those suffering from severe malnutrition would be regularly referred to as caught Harold Wilson syndrome. Harold Wilson was the then-Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.



What makes all of this worse, of course, is that since the Biafran war, Britain has not changed its mentality toward the global south. Allowing millions more to perish as Britain has stood behind illegal wars in all corners of the globe. Most notably now is Britain’s role in the ongoing Saudi-led coalition war on Yemen.

Over one hundred thousand people have been killed in the illegal, indiscriminate and targeted bombardments of civilians in Yemen. The UK has not only been implicated in this slaughter via their weapon sales and diplomatic support for Saudi Arabia, but has also admitted to directly playing a role in the coordination of strikes against the people of Yemen.

What is perhaps most disgraceful, on the part of the UK government, is the role they have played in justifying Saudi Arabia’s brutal blockade of Yemen, which has led to famine and outbreaks of diseases such as cholera. It will not be long before over one million people will have starved to death in Yemen and, depending upon how long this genocidal war against the people continues, perhaps many more than that.

If anything, due to the UK being allowed to get away with its role in the Genocide of Biafrans, it has been emboldened by the international community. This sense of entitlement and lack of regard for human rights has now paved the way for the British to commit a crime much greater in volume against the Yemeni people. Instead of a three-year war, this war has been currently ongoing for five years in Yemen, with many years of battles occurring even before this.

The only difference between now and 50 years ago is that despite the impact of social media and the global awareness of the ongoing genocide in Yemen, there is even more global apathy.

The only question now remaining is: how many more illegal wars will the UK get away with participating in before they are brought to justice? And for how long will the Union Jack stay submerged in the blood of those living — or dying — in lands far from their own.

IPOB berates IYC central zone over unguided utterance



January 22, 2020 | The Biafra Times

By Igrubia Ogelemein Lucky Gbalam

It is a thing of shame to see the most respected group among Ijaw people allow itself to be ridiculed by the unguarded utterances of one man, whose claim to Ijaw descendancy is at best questionable, to issue a press statement against the great Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, threatening to 'beat' Biafrans who are themselves of Ijaw nationality and indigenes of Bayelsa State. Unbeknown to Mr. Olorogun Kennedy whose first name points to his true origin, Bayelsa State and Ijawland is the birthplace of Biafra. Mr. Olorogun Kennedy is a DSS informant craving the attention of his Arewa masters by making attention-grabbing comments on the pages of newspapers to attract more financial rewards from those that have rendered Niger Delta desolate.

This is so shameful because it is obvious that those leading IYC central zone knows nothing about Ijaw people, history, struggle, survival, and enemies. Yes, it is obvious they don't know the enemies of Ijaw people because if they had known they wouldn't have ignored the Ijaw community, Bilabiri burnt down by the Nigerian military to come and be threatening IPOB who are the only voice speaking against such evil in Ijaw land. Mr. Olorogun is pretending he was not aware of the previous and ongoing dialogue between IPOB leadership and prominent Ijaw people in diaspora.

Maybe Mr. Olorogun is not aware that IYC Elders Council publicly hosted our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Igweocha (Port Harcourt) in 2017 at a public event held in Niger Street. One will begin to wonder who this man is truly representing, is it the Ijaw people or the enemies of Ijaw people?

Boko Haram, herdsmen, ISWA, etc and all other terrorist organizations in the north have killed countless Nigerians and Nigerian military officers yet no northern community has been burnt to the ground, rather they keep sending more soldiers from Biafra, Oodua and the Middle Belt origin to be killed in the name of preserving Nigeria's territorial borders. The Nigerian army has never taken offense and burnt down communities as a result of the activities of these terrorists but at the slightest provocation of sea pirates in Ijawland they will take offense and burn down the properties of law-abiding Ijaw citizens yet IYC has been mute about this.

Read Also: The Bait of 2023 Presidency

The whole world knows that IPOB is the only organisation bold enough to confront the excesses of the terrorist government of Nigeria and if IYC central zone is standing against IPOB but mute against the evil meted upon Ijaw people by the oppressive Nigerian military then it means that their loyalty is no longer towards Ijaw people but those who oppress us.

Again, I said they don't know the Ijaw struggle nor the Ijaw history. I say this because they claim that Ijaw Nation is not Biafra and accused IPOB of attempting to cause trouble in Ijawland which according to them is not Biafra. This is not only hilarious but appears to be informed by ignorance. Funny enough, no one can tell the Biafra story without mentioning Ijaw, not even Igbo which he was warning in his so-called letter. Biafra is a country that began it's advancement from the coast, from Ijaw land. Before the creation of what is called Nigeria today (before 1914), every enlightened Ijaw man knew he was a Biafran and that his nation Ijaw is one among many in the Biafra territory. This is why Major Isaac Adaka Boro in his book "The Twelve Days Revolution" where he was trying to describe the location of the Ijaw Nation he was agitating for which he called "Niger Delta Republic", he wrote and I quote "the Niger Delta we shall consider is strictly the area occupied by the Ijaws, the aboriginal tribe of the Delta. It spans the COAST of the BIGHT of BIAFRA, from the Forcados River to the Opobo River and upstream to the Niger tributaries of the Nun and Forcados Rivers."

To confirm the consciousness of Biafra in enlightened Ijaw men of old, one year after Isaac Adaka Boro's declaration of the Ijaw Nation he called Niger Delta when the defunct Eastern region which comprised of most parts of the Biafran territory in Nigeria wanted to go her separate ways from Nigeria because of genocide against Biafran people by the rest of Nigeria, another Ijaw son who died as a king in Ijawland, Frank Opigo reminded the Eastern Assembly that the identity of our collective people is Biafra and the name was adopted because no one could dispute that reality. How then can anyone say Ijaw Nation is not Biafra when Biafra herself got her name from an Ijaw body of water which the oppressive Nigerian state changed after the genocidal war to the name of an Ijaw kingdom Bonny. What is called Bonny River today was once called Biafra River.

I want to call on the IYC President and every other Ijaw leader to reprimand IYC central zone chairman and call him to order because he obviously doesn't know the dictates of his office. There are many ways through which he can seek relevance but using the hallowed name of IPOB to attract cheap publicity will be his undoing. For the avoidance of doubt IPOB meetings in various zones were held last Sunday across Bayelsa State and will continue to hold in Yenegoa Province Biafraland until eternity.

Nigerians and observers of politics in Niger Delta should know this latest utterance from Mr. Olorogun has the hand of DSS written all over it because the government in Abuja are still smarting from the declaration of South-South and South-East monarchs that they support Biafra. What Mr. Olorogun just did is nothing more than a mere stunt to keep his DSS masters happy. His actions are that of a loyal informant, he should be disregarded.

No Progress in the War against Boko Haram - EU

File Photo: President Muhammadu Buhari


January 20, 2020 | The Biafra Times

The European Parliament which is the legislative branch of the European Union (EU), recently suggested that the Nigerian Army and the government had not been telling citizens the whole truth about the fight against terrorism in Nigeria.

This followed the EU parliament’s claim that progress in the fight against terrorism in Nigeria has been stalled.

The army has often made Nigerians believe that Boko Haram and Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) were on the verge of being entirely wiped out in the country.

On several occasions, the army had told Nigerians that it was flushing out of the North-East, remnants of the insurgents.

The Nigerian government has maintained a similar stand on the fight against insurgency.

Both the army and the Nigerian government once declared that the terrorist groups had been “technically” defeated.

However, in its resolution of January 16, 2020, the EU parliament said contrary to what Nigerians were being led to believe, there had not been any progress in the war being staged against terrorism in Nigeria.

The EU parliament, condemning the recent attacks in Nigeria, including the slaughtering of 11 Christian captives in the North-East last Christmas, regretted that terror and other attacks in the country had worsened.

READ ALSO: The Bait of 2023 Presidency

It reiterated its worries over the prolonged crisis in Nigeria and the precarious security condition in the North-East.

It also strongly condemned the frequent “violations of human rights, international and humanitarian law, whether based on religion or ethnicity.”

EU parliament “Condemns, in particular, the recent increase in violence against ethnic and religious communities, including the targeting of religious institutions and worshippers.”

It “deplores that progress has stalled in the fight against Boko Haram, ISWAP and the increased occurrence and severity of suicide attacks and direct attacks against military positions.”

The parliament “Urges the Nigerian authorities to guarantee respect for human rights in the country, and to protect the civilian population from terrorism and violence; insists that such efforts must be conducted in full accordance with respect for human rights and the rule of law, in line with the country’s international obligations.

“Considers any form of the extermination of human beings or ethnic cleansing barbaric and a crime against humanity; urges the Nigerian Government to address the root causes of violence by ensuring equal rights for all citizens and non-discrimination legislation; insists, in this regard, on the need to further promote inter-religious dialogue and the peaceful coexistence of citizens irrespective of their religion, engaging with all relevant stakeholders, including the Nigerian Inter-religious council.”

One of the promises President Muhammadu Buhari made to Nigerians when he came into power in 2015 was that he was going to defeat Boko Haram.

However, the terrorists have continued to exist more than four years after Buhari made the promise.

The Bait of 2023 Presidency

APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu visits President Muhammadu Buhari at State House, Abuja.


January 20, 2020

By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu  | Biafra Writers

Recently, the social media has been awash with headlines bothering on the supposed tribe to produce the president come 2023 general elections in Nigeria. The north, understanding that both the East and the West are politically naïve, now uses the presidential seat as bait for the two sides.

While the North prides self as the giver (not forgetting the claim that they are born-to-rule), the Southeast and Southwest shamelessly beg to receive. The question of who owns Nigeria is thus elaborately answered. The North gets what they want not by begging but by declaration. Only the North does that.

The recent statement by the president about having no intention to run for a third term should be understood. A president who is serving out his second tenure making such utterance is quite significant. The statement, if properly analyzed, is suggestive of the fact that the North is not ready to abdicate the office of the presidency to either of the divides at the Southern hemisphere.

Recent events have shown that the North is using the presidency as bait to both Southeast and Southwest. What then could be their motive? What does the North stand to achieve in making the East and the West fight each other over the 2023 presidential slot?

RELATED NEWS: Biafra: Igbo Presidency, a Misplaced Priority

If the North succeeds in causing a serious rift between the two sides, many gains can be harvested from the conflict. One of such gains is the continuation of President Muhammadu Buhari in office. Secondly, the Southeast and Southwest can be presented to the world as incompetent people that shouldn’t near the seat of presidency in Nigeria. With that, the born to rule mentality that has been nursed in the mind of every Northerner will become established.

When one looks at this from the direction of conquest, it makes more sense. The North understands that embarking on conquest of these areas without first causing the two sides to fight each other will spell doom for them. There's no gain attached to any region becoming the president of the country. Presidency is beneficial to only the North because the North owns the country as made possible by the colonial masters.
