74th UNGA: We have both direct and indirect representations - IPOB



The Biafra Times | September 23, 2019

IPOB PRESS RELEASE

 We understand and respect the legitimate yearning of the public to know what transpired between IPOB delegation to the United Nations in Geneva led by our able leader and prophet Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the staff of the various agencies of the UN we met and had fruitful discussions with. Without divulging very sensitive details that may undermine confidence and future discussions such as the one we just had, it will be prudent to say at this time that the meetings went very well and in some instances surpassed our expectations.

It can be said that what transpired between IPOB delegation and the UN official is a matter of utmost trust and confidentiality governed by mutual respect. But let say this if it will help: our case is now before the various specialised UN agencies or working groups with specialty in various specific monumental human rights abuses systematically perpetrated against Biafrans and other vulnerable individuals and groups in Nigeria. Camallard's recent press release on Nigeria is one such example. You can see that only that press statement has rattled Aso Rock. What then will happen when these war criminals begin to answer individually and collectively or brought to justice before an international court of extra-ordinary jurisdiction? We encourage victims of these heinous crimes to stop being timid and be courageous in coming forward to bear witnesses to these crimes by the Nigerian state.

Our exchanges were frank and forthright. If there were doubts before in their minds that Nigeria is one almighty calamity, the feeling we got after our discussions is that they now have a proper appreciation and deeper understanding of how irredeemably hopeless the case for one Nigeria has become in light of the reign of impunity, poverty, repression, unbridled corruption and collapse of the legal system.

The compellingly well-marshaled case for Biafra self-determination by our leader was all too apparent for them to see and persuasively argued to their understanding that IPOB will not retreat nor relent, but will only intensify its efforts to bring about the collapse of the unworkable union called Nigeria. The UN were left in no doubt that Nigeria is a failed state and arguably the most unstable and dangerous place on earth at this moment. We felt they understood the antics of the current Jubri-Buhari regime is only comparable to the reign of terror of Pol Pot in Cambodia and the horrors of Idi Amin Dada's rule in Uganda but have covertly introduced a system of state-sponsored Fulanisation that can only be likened to an apartheid system or worse. High levels of police and army brutality and absence of a compromised judiciary makes Nigeria a prime candidate for cataclysmic implosion in the not too distant future.

Regarding the United Nations General Assembly meeting in New York, we have both direct and indirect representations for the forthcoming events in the US. Our people are on the ground. If the right conditions which we are waiting for are put in place, our leader will personally lead our people, otherwise, it would be on a later date which would be duly announced.

The proposed confidential US trip by our leader to Washington DC is something we have been preparing for since June of this year. For us, that will be the culmination of our diplomatic offensive which is now happening in the Far East with our leader's ongoing visit to Japan. Whereas Jubril-Buhari was nowhere to be seen in public during the recently concluded TRICAD Summit in Yokohama, our leader can be seen openly touring Japanese cities and addressing open town hall meetings. Our trip to the United States is something the leadership of our movement is looking forward to with relish. Our approach will be better termed as a form of diplomatic strangulation of Nigeria. Regardless of the vast resources available to the Nigerian, one this is certain, IPOB will at the end, render Nigeria diplomatically irrelevant. They will empty their treasury and become impoverished in their effort to counter IPOB which will end in the bankruptcy and precipitous collapse of Nigeria.

There will be no peace with South East Governors. A window of opportunity existed in the past which they could have availed themselves of but instead, they chose to do the bidding of their Fulani masters in the unwarranted, immoral and treacherous persecution of IPOB in return for empty promises of higher political office. IPOB primary focus is on the liberation of our land and enthronement of liberty for all oppressed people. South East Governors are part of the problem and not the solution, therefore they will continue to be regarded as the traitors and E fulefus they have so proudly become.

In recent days they have foolishly intensified their abduction of IPOB family members including breastfeeding mothers and their babies, whereas their northern counterparts are busy paying kidnappers, rapists, and terrorists.

They must know we are mentally prepared for this era of clampdown and will endure everything they throw at us. Our time is coming and when it does, the earth will shake. The Efulefu governors can go on serving their Fulani masters but our focus is the restoration of Biafra.

Biafra: Our Steps are Guided – Kanu Tells Followers




September 20, 2019
By Nelson Ofokar Yagazie | Biafra Writers

The Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, had on Wednesday the 18th of September, 2019, disclosed why some of IPOB's diplomatic onslaughts are kept from the public. Addressing Biafrans who circled him as he emerged from a meeting with UN officials in Geneva, the sage made it clear to the audience that the Nigerian government has been on serious moves to undermine IPOB's efforts on the international scene.

Kanu who made a similar disclosure in the past week at the EU headquarters in Brussels, said, “At the EU Parliament, the Zoo sent two diplomats to stop us. Today they couldn't send anybody to come and see us. You must all know that the Zoo is fighting very hard to stop us. So we have to be very careful in all that we do or else they will try to stop what we are doing.”

Recall that a few months ago when Kanu toured North America, the docile and subservient Vice President, Professor Yemi Osibanjo, suddenly zoomed off to the US. That sudden trip, observers believed, was a covert move to get the US government to pay a deaf ear to the Biafra cry. Remember his ear-scorching statement while there? It was all in an attempt to frustrate Biafra diplomatic engagements.

It is not surprising that the Nigerian government is fighting tooth and neck to torpedo the Biafra boat, spending Billions of dollars in the process, while back at home its citizens wallow in poverty, hunger and starvation precipitated by unemployment, epileptic power supply, non-payment of workers salary among many other governmental dysfunctions. The hate for Biafra outweighs the love for its citizens; consequently, the well-being of an average Nigerian is secondary.

Expressing optimism, however, the Biafran leader added, “But they will not succeed.” Kanu and crew seem to be overpowering Nigerian government's ploys, Nigerian agents having failed to intercept Kanu's EU visit, and in the case of UN, didn't try at all ... a clear sign of an accepted defeat.

Our UN Diplomatic Mission, a Landmark Achievement – Kanu at Geneva



September 20, 2019
By Nelson Ofokar Yagazie | Biafra Writers

Delivering his promise at the last diplomatic onslaught at EU headquarters, Brussels, where he promised to take the fight for Biafra self-determination to the United Nations, reaffirmed in the tweet, “Our Next Stop is UN,” the Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, said “There are those who are wondering can this thing be done. And we are showing them today that this thing that has not happened since 1945 when they started killing our people in Jos, that here today on the 18th day of September 2019, it has happened.” Kanu who made the statement while addressing a conglomerate of Biafrans who met him as he stepped out from the United Nations headquarters in Geneva where he and other top figures of IPOB leadership had meeting with UN officials was visibly triumphant.

Speaking further, the enigmatic leader of Biafra said, “I said we will come to the UN and we have come to the United Nations. Promise made, promise delivered. Remarkable.

Recall that in Brussels a week and few days ago, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, hinted on a possible visit to the UN to further the Biafra quest. While there was no genuine doubt to that, all having seen IPOB 's momentum as demonstrated with the EU visit, no one expected the UN episode so soon. The two day (17th and 18th September 2019) diplomatic meeting at the UN, therefore, took everyone by surprise.

There have been arguments about IPOB's standing at the international scene, with critics maintaining that the group lacks the finesse to launch any meaningful diplomatic engagement capable of freeing Biafra. Not that the doubting lots are not aware of IPOB’s diplomatic offensives, but doing the bidding of the Federal Government of Nigeria who is bent on frustrating the Biafra freedom demand, they vend their skepticism with a view to dwindling the masses rising hopes in the coming of Biafra. Kanu’s United Nations visit, synergizing that of the EU, thus buries all arguments.

Although the details of what was discussed in the meeting were not disclosed to the public, Kanu's body language convinces the press that the Biafran envoy is leaving Geneva with something tangible. Ears are now inclined to the group’s next move – presumably, Washington DC – especially as Kanu also hinted on that in Brussels.

DSS Abducted a Breastfeeding Mother in Nnewi



By Ezzy Okorie | Biafra Writers
September 20, 2019

Information reaching the desk of Biafra Writers has it that the Nigeria DSS have kidnapped a breastfeeding Mother and wife of an IPOB member Mrs.Okoro Chimkamuma, 32 years of age. According to an eye witness, Mrs. Okoro was kidnapped and taken away by the men of the Nigerian DSS under the instruction of Anambra state Governor, Willy Obiano. This incident happened on Thursday, September 19, 2019, at the back of the Guaranty Trust Bank, GTB, in Nnewi town, Anambra state.

The fierce-looking DSS men abandoned Mrs. Okoro’s little baby of a year and few months in a daycare knowing quite well the baby is still being breastfed by her mummy.

They kidnapped and took Mrs. Chimkamuma Okoro away from her business premises after an attempt to arrest her husband Mr. Uchenna Okoro, who is an IPOB family member failed. The reason for trying to arrest him is because of his Biafra activism.

We understood that they are detaining Mr. Okoro at the DSS office Awka, where most of the Fulani officers are stationed.

Governor Willy Obiano should be held responsible if Mrs. Okoro got molested in the hands of these Fulani security officers, IPOB will not take this matter lightly if Mrs. Okoro is not released immediately. This nonsense of arresting innocent people for nothing sake must stop.

Biafra: Our Case Will No Longer Be Ignored – Nnamdi Kanu at UN

IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu at UN Geneva


September 19, 2019
By Nelson Ofokar Yagazie | Biafra Writers

The enigma championing the current restoration quest of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Wednesday the 18th day of September 2019, scored yet another mark as he led a delegation of Biafrans to an all-important meeting with United Nations officials at Geneva. Accompanied by his deputy, Mazi Uche Okafor Mefor, Head of Directorate of State, Mazi Chika Edoziem, Head of Finance, Lady Nnennaya Anya, and other top echelons of the struggle, Kanu presented Biafra plight to the United Nations officials, demanding support for a free state of Biafra.

Emerging from the meeting yesterday the 18th of September, Kanu met a congregation of Biafrans who, on seeing their leader, began to chant his eulogy. Addressing the jubilant crowd, Kanu said, “Every issue concerning our people is now before the various arms and agencies of the United Nations. Our case will no longer be ignored.”

“Every issue concerning our people” as mentioned by Kanu ranges from the incessant killing of Biafrans in their own land by terrorist Fulani herdsmen, extortion and killing of Biafran motorcyclists and commercial drivers by Nigerian army and police over refusal to give 50 bribery, killing of Biafrans in the Northern hemisphere by Islamic extremists, disfranchising Biafrans in the western part of the country as well as in the North, illegal take-over of Biafrans' property by Lagos State government, systematic oppression and economic emasculation of the Biafran, forceful Islamization of the country as currently constituted, illegal detention of unarmed agitators, flagrant contempt of court orders, and  incessant abduction and extrajudicial killings of IPOB family members ... all of which form the basis of the agitation for the separate state of Biafra which, in earnest, was existing before the Lugardian amalgamation of 1914.

Exploiting the rights of indigenous people to self-determination as provided by the UN charter 2007, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in his charisma has conscientiously pursued freedom for the oppressed people of Biafra. Presenting the aforementioned matters to the UN with presumably offers for a better deal than the failed Nigerian State can strike, Kanu and crew seem to have wrecked the Nigerian boat. Certainly, he must have gotten reassuring promises to have told his followers that they will no longer be ignored.

Nigeria is not one, has never been one - Fani-Kayode berates Aliyu Gwarzo




The Biafra Times | September 18, 2019

ALIYU GWARZO SAID:

"The problem with you Southerners is that you can never understand the north. We are a mystery to you and you cannot comprehend us despite all your boasting that you are better than us.

You claim to be educated but in fact, you are uneducated and uncivilised. What do you know about education and what has it done for you?

We Fulani toss a small bone to you from our table and you betray and fight each other like dogs for it. You crawl before us and beg us for crumbs.

That is your lot in life. You are nothing more than beggars. Cowardly and contended slaves!

Just like your fathers served us, so you shall serve us. Just as you serve us, so your children shall serve us. And just as your children shall serve us, so their children shall serve us.

We are born to rule. Leadership is our blood. No-one in this country can stop or change it. No-one can touch us. Allah has given us Nigeria. It is a gift to our forefathers from him.

Our great grandfather Shaik Osman Dan Fodio and the Mujahadeen fought for it. Our grandfather the Saurdana, Sir Ahmadu Bello expanded our borders and frontiers.

Our father President Muhammadu Buhari has come to complete the job and he is doing very well.

You see the most effective chains are the invisible ones. We already have you in those chains but you just don't know it. We took our power back in 2015. We will not release it to southerners or unbelievers again. Not in the next 100 years!

It is true that we came from Futa Toro and Futa Jalon many years ago and conquered the north. Now every inch of it belongs to us.

Every Fulani, whether from Mali, Senegal, Guinea,  Niger, Chad, Cameroon or anywhere else is our brother and has a right to be here with us. We are Fulani before Nigerian and our allegiance is to our Fulani brothers all over West Africa more than you.

Now we will conquer south and we do it in the name of "one Nigeria". In that "one Nigeria" we shall remain the masters and you shall remain the slaves!

None of you are going anywhere. Nigeria will never break. We will not allow it"- ALIYU GWARZO.

FEMI FANI-KAYODE RESPONDS:

"The problem with you is that you have allowed your delusions and lust for power and control to get the better of you. You and those you speak for are truly lost.

You threaten and boast as if you are God, forgetting that He alone has the final say. You are not the first Fulani to speak like this and you will not be the last. A man called Hassan Kontagora said similar things many years ago and where is he today? The south is still standing and despite all we are not yet conquered!

With apologies to William Shakespeare's Macbeth, permit me to say this: yours is a sorry tale, told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing!

I read your words and I shook my head in utter disgust. Such insolence! Such arrogance! Such hate! If you are incapable of learning from history are you also incapable of learning from the ancient scriptures and the Holy Books?

Can satan defeat God? Can injustice prevail against justice? Does the suffering and captivity of the righteous last forever? Can the children of God be enslaved or subjugated in perpetuity?

Can our God ever abandon us and hand us over to you? Can darkness overcome light? Though we may weep through the night does our joy not come in the morning? Is our God not faithful and is the vision not for an appointed time?

READ ALSO: Biafra: We Shall Prevail

Your threats and boasts make me laugh.
Is this not the way King Sennacherib of Assyria boasted before King Hezekiah and the children of Israel at the gates of Jerusalem? Do you believe that our God, the God of Hezekiah, is dead?

Is this not the way that Goliath boasted before David? Do you think that our God, the God of David, is no longer alive?

Hear this and hear it well: as long as Jesus sits on the throne you will never conquer southern Nigeria! You can try but you will continue to fail.

And neither do you own the north. You only think you do and, as was the case with Icarus the Greek, your inordinate ambition, crass and inappropriate arrogance, and hubristic pride will lead to your nemesis.

I make bold to say that hell will freeze over before we bend the knee and bow before you and before you have your way! Death would be preferable to such an ignoble capitulation!

You have the nerve to talk about education and civilisation yet the bitter truth is that you are an uneducated almajiri whose ancestors were still mounting and riding camels and donkeys whilst mine were at the best universities in the world.

My great grandfather was at Furrough Bay College in Sierra Leonne which, at that time, was part of Durham University.  Where was yours?

My grandfather was at Selwyn College, Cambridge University. Where was yours?

My father was at  Downing College, Cambridge University. Where was yours?

My brothers were at  Downing College, Cambridge University and Georgetown University respectively. Where were yours?

I was at  SOAS, London University and at Pembroke College, Cambridge University.  Where were you?

I really do not know what education or civilisation you are referring to because you have neither of the two.

You, your forefathers and your successors are still living in the stone-age, riding camels, loving and worshipping cows, stealing other people's land in the name of cattle-herding, butchering your fellow-human beings and slaughtering your compatriots.

I ask you this: who is more educated and civilised between me and you and between mine and yours? Do you even know the meaning of these words?

The truth is that we are not one and we can never be one. The difference between us is like the difference between night and day.

We love but you hate. We seek the light but you seek the darkness. We believe in life but you believe in death. We delight in peace but you delight in war.

We crave for progress, stability, security, and prosperity but you lust for anarchy, chaos, bloodshed,  destruction, terror, conquest, power and the perpetual domination and subjugation of others.

I ask you again, who is more educated and more civilised between you and I and between your people and mine?

Can there be any fellowship between light and darkness? Can there be love between the sons of God and the sons of Belial?

Can there be peace between the serpent and the lion?

Can there be harmony between the captor and the captive?

Can there be understanding between the oppressor and the oppressed?

Is it any wonder that millons say that our country must either restructure or break?

Is it not obvious that our claim of national unity is an illusion and that it is bogus and false.

Nigeria is not one, has never been one and will never be one unless and until we firstly learn and accept the basic and fundamental principle that all men, regardless of race, religion and circumstance of birth are equal before God and secondly that we must restructure and devolve power from the centre to the six regions and zones.

Failure to do this will eventually result in the implosion and violent break-up of the country sometime in the not-too-distant future.

Why? Because no matter how hard you try oil and water do not mix, because slave-masters do not remain slave-masters forever and because slaves do not remain slaves in perpetuity.

It is true that the ancient boundaries cannot be broken but that does not mean that they cannot be altered and reset."- FEMI FANI-KAYODE.

Biafra: We Shall Prevail



September 18, 2019
By Victoria. O. C. Agangan | Biafra Writers

When the Israelites fought and the sun stood still, Moses’ hands at a point became heavy. But he relied on the support of his people and so his hands remained up until the fight ended in victory.

Now the battle is getting fiercer and has taken dramatic dimensions. All facets of Nigeria are on fire, in chaos and debased. Unlawful killings are systematically sanctioned and condoned by the terrorist government of Nigeria and has rendered the citizens as docile as a lamb and incapable of speaking out in condemnation of these murderous atrocities.

In all these, the relevance of IPOB has continued to soar. It is equally noteworthy that IPOB has turned out to be the hope of the Biafran people.

The federal government arrested Sowore because he was sighted with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and till date, members of IPOB have continued to be persecuted – are hunted down, illegally incarcerated and extra-judicially executed because the terrorist government of Nigeria is incapable of respecting human rights and instituting democratic ideals.

The chaos plaguing Nigeria is a direct consequence of its iniquitous existence and the evil it represents. More so, this is expected as Nigeria must be obliterated for Biafra to rise in glory.

I commend the leadership of IPOB for not yielding to distractions but remaining focused and forging ahead with the divine task of restoring Biafra and the dignity of black man, world over. All Biafrans must remain resolute and must continue to practice and propagate the wholesome ideals that this struggle represents.

We have come so far and must continue. The unequaled efforts by IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to engage the international community and seek relevant support must continue. Biafra has everything required to be a prosperous nation. Therefore, we must not relent, but must in togetherness, continue in this divine mandate to take our destiny in our own hands, for in the end, just as light displaces darkness, we shall prevail.
