Biafra: Tension high as Police arraign detained IPOB women in court




August 20, 2018

Owerri - Tension is very high in Owerri amid tight security as Imo state police command arraigned almost 100 Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) women in court.

It will be recalled that the women (mostly mothers and grandmothers) were arrested in Owerri on Friday, August 18, 2018 while on a peaceful protest in demand of the release of their leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu whom whereabouts is still unknown after the Nigeria Army invaded his home on September 14, 2017, during Operation Python Dance 2.

In a statement signed by Emma Powerful, IPOB publicity secretary, made available to The Biafra Times reads in part; We condemn the sacrilegious arrest, illegal detention and barbaric torture of grandmothers arrested and held in military custody by Nigerian soldiers and police under the most appalling conditions. It is unheard of anywhere in the world that old women, some of them grandmothers, were arrested by army or police, teargassed, locked-up and tortured for exercising their constitutionally guaranteed right to peaceful assembly.

Powerful also exposed plans by the APC Islamic government to intimidate and harass Biafrans, their women and the elderly. He also added that the abduction of grandmothers, some of them in their late 70s, is the worst kind of abomination and sound warning as he described the arrest of IPOB women  as an invitation to anarchy because if by the close of business on Monday, August 20, 2018, IPOB will call for a civil uprising against the oppressors and their agents.

Stay tuned as we bring you more updates from the court proceedings...

Biafra: We will shut down Imo state, if our detained mothers are not released - IPOB spit fire



IPOB PRESS RELEASE | Published by The Biafra Times

August 19, 2018

We condemn the sacrilegious arrest, illegal detention and barbaric torture of grandmothers arrested and held in military custody by Nigerian soldiers and police under the most appalling conditions. It is unheard of anywhere in the world that old women, some of them grandmothers, were arrested by army or police, teargassed, locked-up and tortured for exercising their constitutionally guaranteed right to peaceful assembly.

If there were any doubts before that Ala-Igbo and the rest of Biafraland is a Fulani conquered territory, the abominable treatment of elderly women on a peaceful March, arrested, tortured and interrogated like common criminals, have all but dispelled it. That Imo State government gave the go-ahead to northern Islamic army and police formations across Imo State to abduct and torture our mothers, is a clear confirmation that Rochas Okorocha and his government has no regard for us as a people.

The intention of the Islamic APC government is to intimidate and humiliate our people, women and the elderly. The abduction of grandmothers, some of them in their late 70s, is the worst kind of abomination. It is an invitation to anarchy because if by the close of business on Monday, August 20, 2018, IPOB will call for a civil uprising against the oppressors and their agents in Ohaneze Ndigbo and government houses across Biafraland.
This level of desecration and sacrilege will not happen in Arewa North neither will it be condoned in Yorubaland. It is happening in Biafraland because those that parade themselves as leaders (SE governors and Ohaneze) are cowards, appointed by the caliphate to act as their agents.

When Fulani terrorist herdsmen rape our mothers in the farms, destroy our crops and means of livelihood, you don't see any army or police rushing to protect them. No Fulani terror herdsmen has ever been arrested by the Nigerian army or police. But the same long-suffering mothers, with nobody to protect them, are the ones being arrested, detained and tortured for exercising a constitutionally guaranteed right.

As with other conspiratorial atrocities in Biafraland perpetrated by the Nigerian army, DSS and police, Igbo governors as the chief security officer of their states alongside Ohaneze Ndigbo, must be held responsible. Even in the North where Rochas Okorocha comes from, they don't arrest elderly women on a protest march.

It's a pity that Nigeria security who cannot afford to stop or curtail Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram terrorists rampaging and killing people in every part of the country, only demonstrate their might against elderly women who only came out to demand for their right. IPOB will not hesitate to alert the world that Okehi Police Station in Etche Rivers State is where the torture of Biafran women is taking place.

Impending Operation Python Dance III: Another License to Murder Biafrans - IPOB


August 19, 2018

IPOB Press Statement

Following a recent statement by the Fulani Islamic dominated Nigerian Army led by Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai regarding the impending commencement of another murderous season of Operation Python Dance across Biafraland, we the family members of the Indigenous  People of Biafra (IPOB) and it's leadership worldwide wish to alert the public that Nnia Nwodo led Ohanaeze Ndigbo/South East governors sponsored Islamic massacre of innocent Biafrans is once again in the pipeline. Let no one be deceived as to the real motives of the so-called Igbo leaders and Abuja based politicians, behind this latest round of impending slaughter of Biafrans.

The bitter truth is that South-East governors, Lagos-Abuja based Igbo politicians who are dependent on the political patronage of their Fulani godfathers, with the active connivance of Ohaneze Ndigbo, are the people behind every Operation Python Dance that ever took place. These Igbo politicians see the periodic military massacre of their own people as a necessary sacrifice that must be made to ease their Fulani masters and ensure their political survival, electoral victory and relevance because they know in Nigeria true power belongs to the Fulani caliphate.

To Nnia Nwodo’s Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors, especially Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu and Willie Obiano, the best way an Igbo politician can demonstrate his one Nigeria credentials is to actively participate or facilitate the wholesale slaughter of his own people. Should Buratai's Islamic soldiers march on the streets of Biafraland anytime in 2018 and beyond, Biafrans must hold Gov. Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Willie Obiano and Nnia Nwodo led Ohaneze Ndigbo responsible.

More unarmed, peaceful IPOB family members has been killed in the past year than all Boko Haram terrorists and genocidal Fulani herdsmen put together. When Fulani herdsmen attacked and killed unarmed villagers in Nimbo Enugu State, no Igbo governor or Ohaneze Ndigbo asked for Operation Python Dance to defend the people. In fact they became dumb. It is common knowledge that Aso Rock refused to take the calls of Gov. Ugwuanyi. Commander of 82 Division Enugu and various leaders of state security agencies that litter couldn't be reached until the Fulani killers left.

When it comes to the killing of peaceful IPOB family members, phone calls from Igbo governors and Nnia Nwodo are promptly answered and soldiers deployed immediately. Isn't it ironic that Igbo governors, Ohaneze Ndigbo, Fulani officers and soldiers that make up the bulk of the Nigerian Army, have chosen to ignore the murderous tendencies of Islamic extremism perpetrated by their own kith and kin in Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen but have instead turned their rage and guns on unarmed IPOB fighting for their God given right to self determination?

To make matters worse, the newly announced Operation Python Dance for the ember months of 2018 is coming on the heels of the discovery of yet more dead bodies of victims of Operation Python Dance from last year, in mass graves in Ukwa Ngwa Abia State in the past week. Ohaneze Ndigbo and Igbo governors will not even allow IPOB to finish burying those their Fulani masters killed last year before inviting them to come and kill us again. They have no regard for even the dead.

The criminal and conspiratorial silence of Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu, Igbo governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo in the face of the discovery of mass graves in Abia State is damning proof that these men we regard as political and traditional leaders in Igboland especially are nothing more than lilly-livered traitors, quislings and cowards, only interest in serving the will of their Fulani masters.

The number of IPOB family members killed extra judicially as a result of Operation Python Dance and associated military operations in the South East/South South by northern Islamic dominated Nigerian Army, run into hundreds, with many still missing and unaccounted for till date. Igbo governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo is silent on these atrocities because they are part of it as confirmed by IPOB intelligence that intercepted Gov. Wille Obiano's conversation with a top northern military commander in Onitsha Barracks.

Therefore, we wish to alert the public that the same Igbo men involved in the planning and execution  of Operation Python Dance across Biafraland last year are at it again this year. South East governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo should be held responsible should Buratai decide to march his Fulani Islamic soldiers into our land on another killing expedition designed to reduce the population of the South East.

We wish to place it on record that Ohaneze Ndigbo led by Nnia Nwodo, current crop of South East governors and Igbo political contractors in Abuja and Lagos, will never be forgiven for their crimes and atrocities against our people. For the sake of electoral victory, money, contracts and political appointments, they have helped in the further enslavement of a long suffering people.  They are fighting against IPOB because they don't want the people to be set free.

Biafraland has become a colonial outpost of the Fulani caliphate thanks to these men. Those of them that planned Operation Python Dance last year and seeking to do same this year because of their hatred for Biafra; the Lagos/Abuja errand boys that sold their soul to the Devil in return for political office, must know that judgment is fast approaching.  They and their families will be held accountable at the appointed time. There will be no mercy. Let them not say they were not warned.

Biafra: Rolling Out Tanks, Shooting and Killing Biafra Activists; an Inevitable Time Bomb That Must Explode One Day



Princewill Akubumma | For Biafra Writers

August 19, 2018

The brute-force attack strategy employed by the Nigerian government in handling issues against pro-Biafra activists is like a man creating a monster that will one day turn around and devour him. And the high handedness with which they follow the Biafra agitators is a proof that Nigeria doesn't value history for you cannot beat a child and forbid him not to cry!

On September 14, 2017, the Gen. Tukur Buratai led Nigeria Army under the order of Muhammadu Buhari in collaboration with Ohanaeze Ndigbo and South East Governors, invaded the home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in a failed assassination attempt which resulted the death of 28 members of the group, and the disappearance of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his parents.

For the past one year now the whereabouts of the Biafra leader and his parents is still yet unknown, millions of his followers have been keeping their cool until on Friday, August 17, 2018, when their women decided to embark on a peaceful protest in demand of Kanu's whereabouts, and again, the oppressive Nigerian state as usual called out their armed Police officers to shoot at them with live bullets, harassing and arrested as many as they can after saturating them with lachrymator agent causing them severe eye and respiratory pain. As at the time of filing this report 48 IPOB women are still been held in an inhuman condition in Owerri, Imo State under the watch of Governor Rochas Okorocha and the state's commissioner of police,  Dasuki Galandanchi.

It is obvious that the Nigerian state has continued to try the patience of this non-violent agitators for quite a long time. And there comes a day when you are being pushed against a brick wall, the seemingly only option for you is to either get through the wall or get over it! And every right-thinking person would know that such a day is here upon us!


The world and the international community can bear witness to the fact that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been victimized by the Nigerian state in so many occasions whenever they carried out a peaceful protest against the marginalization and unlawful detention of their members yet, they remained peaceful and resolute in their pursuit for self-determination but the oppressive Nigerian state has continued to kill and maim them for no just course which appears that the only language they understood is violence, which may result to arm struggle.


And we hope that no one should blame the Indigenous People of Biafra if eventually they resort to arm struggle since they are being killed every day for exercising their rights just like every other free people of the world has exercise theirs.

The brute-force attack method being used against the unarmed pro-Biafra agitators in southeast Nigeria is the same approach that birthed the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists in the northern Nigeria which has gone beyond the scope and strength of the federal government and the international community as well.

Recall that the movement once began with a group of people lead by one Muhammad Yusuf who holds peaceful rallies and talks going from one mosque to another teaching the Muslim faithful sharia law and they were conducting themselves peacefully while doing that.

But all came crashing down when the Nigerian government under the watch of the former President Olusegun Obasanjo began to treat them with contempt, shooting and killing them at random just as they have been going about the case with IPOB. It was then that the once peaceful Jama'at Ahli as-Sunnah Lid-Da'wah wal-Jihad group turned violent and started carrying guns, IEDs and all sort of dangerous weapons and started bombing and killing people before they were tagged a terrorist organization and ever since then Boko Haram has not stopped killing people in Nigeria.

A word they say is enough for the wise. The Nigerian government must learn from history or risk having another insurgent in addition to the one they created by themselves which they could not contain.

This is because when injustice becomes a law, resistance becomes a duty.

Slain Bodies Of IPOB Members Discovered In Obiawom Forest



IPOB PRESS RELEASE | Published By The Biafra Times

August 14, 2018

We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) commend our intelligence unit over the horrific discovery of yet more dead bodies of slain Biafrans in Obiawom village of Ogwe Autonomous Community in Asa Ukwa West LGA of Abia State. This gruesome find will once again drive home the horrors of Operation Python Dance and why all those that participated in its instigation and execution such as Ohaneze Ndigbo, South East governors and selected Igbo elders and politicians must not go unpunished.

If anything, this cold-blooded execution and unceremonious dumping of dead bodies in the forest by Fulani soldiers in Obiawom village in Ukwa West under the control of Abia State governor Okezie Ikpeazu is ample justification for the recent decision of IPOB to disengage from any further talks with Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors until all issues surrounding the genocidal Operation Python Dance is cleared up.

Had these number of murder victims been discovered in any Muslim country, region or part of the world, the International Criminal Court (ICC),  United Nations, Britain, USA and world media will be up in arms demanding explanation and holding the perpetrators accountable. Because these events are happening to Biafrans in Nigeria; where an Islamic government, along with her security operatives staffed by Fulani officers are aiding and protecting Hausa Fulani herdsmen and their kinsmen in the army from the consequences of the worst form of ethnically motivated genocide presently in Africa, the world remains deaf to the cries of IPOB. The site of these decomposed bodies should be designated as an international crime scene and promptly investigated.



Should the United Nations, ICC, USA and European Union fail to act on this gruesome discovery of mass grave of Biafrans in Ukwa Ngwa Abia State, we would conclude that there exists a credible bias and conspiracy to exterminate and Islamise Biafra by the pro-Islamic international community.

As we draw near to the anniversary of the murderous invasion of Afaraukwu on the 14th of September 2017, we once again call on Igbo governors, the global Christian community, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and other reputable and relevant human rights organisations around the world, to prevail upon the International Criminal Court, the Nigeria Government and her security operatives to release the remaining dead bodies of Biafrans in their custody since last year. An international panel of enquiry must be constituted as a matter of urgency to investigate the atrocities of this Buhari regime against innocent populations in Nigeria and Biafra in particular.

The Insufficiency Of PVC In Regime Change In Africa



By Chuba Ebenezer | For Biafra Writers


August 14, 2018

Africa as a continent have in her checkered history produced many rulers, dictators and emperors, who ruled and reigned over their land with iron fist; ruthless and lawless. Without respect to the rule of law, human right abusers, war criminals and violators of the very constitution they swore to uphold, has dragged Africa to the hall of infamy. Several attempts were made to depose them and usher in a regime change through the constitutional means of voting using Permanent Voters Card, PVC, without success. Why? Because these despots, tyrants and dictators have mastered the art of rigging election and perpetuation through their long years in power, manipulating every due process thereby subverting the will of the people in order to retain their position and perpetuate themselves in power.

The recent alleged discovery of thousands of PVCs in the residence of the sacked, former czar of DSS, Lawal Musa Daura, is a typical example of how desperate African despots can be concerning self-preservation in power.

I make bold to say that the much-publicized registration and issuance of PVC by the present crop of politicians in Nigeria, is more ceremonial than relevant because the so-called PVC doesn't mean much to them. The recent Ekiti State governorship election is a very typical case study; an eyeopener to some of us that believed in the truth.

Our only earnest expectation is the forthcoming referendum that will determine whether we will remain in Nigeria, with all her intrigue, shenanigans and dance of shame or opt out.

Nigeria is the paradoxical baby that have refused to grow in order to make way for another newborn baby in the family. We are elated and excited about our eventual establishment and restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra; to us, it's like recovering our stolen honour and long denied identity.

We canvass and we are very fanatical about this that we shall neither support nor participate in any electoral process in Nigeria again, until the Nigerian government and her British ally gives heed to our demand for a credible referendum and eventual safe passage to our own dear nation of Biafra.

The warmongers among the Fulani oligarchy are relentless in the inordinate pursuit of their long-held ideology of divide and rule, arbitrary arrest and detention, torment and torture, injuring and murder of our people across the length and breadth of Nigeria. Our message to Muhammadu Buhari and his Fulani militia is this: Build more prisons, acquire more arms and ammunition, including but not limited to fighter jets and APC (Armoured personnel carriers). Our resolve is irrevocable, our quest is unquenchable, our spirit is supercharged.

Biafrans’ Blood, The Lubricant To Nigeria’s Engine



By Chuba Ebenezer | For Biafra Writers

August 13, 2018


Many years ago during my physics lesson, my teacher made so much emphasis on the fact that for an engine to function properly, there must be an oil which aids the machine as a lubricant. Without adequate lubricant in an engine, the engine might knock down, collapse or suffer from friction.

Today, I apply this lesson I learnt years ago to the precarious conditions Biafrans face in Nigeria presently. During the pre-independence era in Nigeria, Biafrans were being massacred in their numbers. Again, in post-independence Nigeria, more Biafrans were slaughtered which later culminated to the 1967-70 genocidal war waged against Biafrans by Nigeria and her allies, in which more than 3.5 million innocent Biafran citizens mostly women and children were exterminated and starved to death.

The Biafrans have always sacrificed so much with their sweat in all local and foreign lands in which they sojourn; in supporting and upholding the unity and development of Nigeria. But like the proverbial Shylock, Nigeria will always draw our blood to function. Biafrans’ blood will always serve as lubricant for the engine of Nigeria’s unity until they are completely emancipated and liberated from Nigeria’s bloody grip on them.

For the mere fact that our contributions and sacrifices are never recognized or appreciated, either in the past or in this present Nigeria. Rather, our people are being mowed down like common criminals; for only demanding and exercising their inalienable rights to self-determination under local and international laws. There have been massive clamp down, abductions, illegal arrests and detentions without trial; brutality and torture, summary executions carried out against unarmed Biafra activists for merely asking questions and demanding for plebiscite to determine their future and that of their unborn children.

After the terrible and deadly holocaust, the world said never again, after the genocidal war against Biafrans, the world must have muttered never again. After the Rwanda genocide, the world rose up and unanimously echoed 'never again'. We, the Biafrans only demand for an internationally recognized and monitored referendum from Nigeria. It is only the ignorant and mischievous elements among the pro-Nigeria savages that equate referendum with war.
