BIAFRA: IPOB EXPOSES THE UNPATRIOTIC EFFORTS OF CHIEF NNIA NWODO TO DESTROY THE WORK OF IPOB












IPOB PRESS RELEASE

December 15, 2017

We note with great sadness the public acknowledgement of Chief John Nnia Nwodo the Ohaneze Ndigbo President General about his involvement and that of his organisation in the unpatriotic effort to destroy the work of IPOB, thereby perpetuating the misery of Biafrans in the unworkable Luggardian contraption called Nigeria.

It is equally baffling to the global family of IPOB, especially those of Igbo extraction, why a highly educated and respected leader of Ohaneze Ndigbo will publicly equate the demand for a referendum as a call for war. What this demonstrates is that Ohaneze Ndigbo unlike Afenifere may have fallen victim to the Ministry of Information sponsored propaganda and smear campaign that a demand for Biafra equals a demand for war. If that is the case, it is very unfortunate indeed coming from a supposedly enlightened people. A call for referendum is never a call for war.

Those opposed to the idea of genuine freedom for Biafra were the people that brought war to Biafraland through Operation Python Dance not IPOB. From every indication, Chief Nwodo have confirmed that he was one of those that sanctioned the use of lethal force against unarmed, peaceful IPOB family members gathered at Kanu's residence on the 11th and 14th of September 2017. The likes of Ohaneze Ndigbo should be defending the interest of movements like IPOB fighting for the survival of all oppressed people within Nigeria, instead of conniving with the oppressor to unleash mayhem and death on their own.

Chief Nwodo's open acknowledgement during his speech at the National Stadium Surulere that he would sabotage Biafra again is a demonstration of highest level of cowardice which our oppressors will read as a sign of weakness at the heart of Igbo leadership. What he has succeeded in doing is to embolden Hausa Fulani into believing that Igbos are their slaves. Such uncharacteristic display of impotent leadership in the face of political, economic and social emasculation of an entire race by this present regime of Buhari, should not be associated with anybody claiming to be the leader of Ndi-Igbo.

Our promise to Chief Nwodo and his cohorts within and outside Ohaneze Ndigbo is this, not they or anybody else can stop or quench what is about to come in the name of Biafra. Our project is divine, our leadership fanatical, no man born of a woman can stop the restoration of Biafra.

We must remind all saboteurs that the day of reckoning is fast approaching and no amount of pleading on their behalf will save them. They have sowed the wind, they must reap the whirlwind. God did not create us to be slaves to Arewa North and we would never submit to slavery.

Nnamdi Kanu Vs Army: Justice Binta Nyako’s Irrational Adjournment, A Travesty And Affront To Justice











By Chijindu Benjamin Ukah || For Biafra Writers

December 14, 2017

After another irrational adjournment yesterday, on the suit filed by lawyer to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, seeking to compel the Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai to produce Kanu in court, it is now clear that the Muslim judge, Binta Nyako has compromised the standard upon which justice is built.

Binta Nyako is biased in this case; she is doing the bid of her paymasters by not only adjourning Kanu's trial endlessly without tangible reasons but deliberately adjourned ruling on the suit asking the Army Chief to produce Kanu in court simply because she obviously knows the judgment would go against the favour of her pay masters. Nyako's favoritism and biasness is further laid to bare by the fact that she failed to establish cogent reasons that warranted the adjournment.

In my previous article titled, “The Stupidity And Unprofessional Conduct Of Buratai, FG, And The Need To “Invoke The Doctrine Of Last Seen”, I had stated clearly that; “Last Seen Doctrine” in law, stipulates in cases of murder, where there is no explanation for the death or disappearance of the deceased and the defendant was the last person seen in company of the deceased, then circumstantial evidence can be used to link the defendant to the death of the deceased or applicant as the case may be, and prove the charge against the defendant beyond reasonable doubt.

There is no burden on the defendant to prove his innocence and explain the death or sudden disappearance of the Applicant but the burden remains on the Prosecution to prove that the defendant killed the deceased. It is the duty of the prosecution to lead sufficient evidence to establish a prima facie case against the defendant to require an explanation for the disappearance of the deceased and absence of any reasonable explanation can support the inference of guilt.

Justice Nyako knows that the ball is on her court to invoke the “Last Seen Doctrine” against the Army represented by Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai, on whose order the soldiers invaded Kanu’s home and whisked him away. But instead of doing the needful, Binta have chosen to protect her pay masters thereby subverting and murdering justice. She is intentionally frustrating the counsel to Nnamdi Kanu.

Binta Nyako is committing judicial blunder and grave misconduct against judicial processes. She is under oath to protect the rights of the common man but the reverse is the case in this matter. If Buratai and his army cannot produce Nnamdi Kanu in court, Binta Nyako should do the needful or resign from handling the case.

It is unfortunate and appalling that the Nigerian judiciary always allow its integrity to be rubbished and dragged to the mud by the likes of Justice Binta Nyako whose uncoordinated conduct has further basterdized its image and hope of ordinary citizens. Her conduct in handling this case is a proof that the Nigerian Judiciary is indisputably under the control of the Executive arm of government, which is against the rule of checks and balances obtainable in a democratic system of government.

The jihadist Fulani cabals who has taken Binta Nyako as their puppet must understand that Kanu’s case is a global matter of interest and the world is watching and monitoring how this case is being handled and how it will also end. The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPO,B will continue to fight until justice prevails.

Anambra: Breaking News; The African People’s Party, Drag Obiano, APGA and INEC to Tribunal, Over Fake Victory




















December 14, 2017

The African People’s Party has asked the Anambra State governorship electoral tribunal to quash the victory of Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State at the just concluded governorship election in the state.

Meanwhile in a petition filed before the Tribunal dated 7th December, 2017 with reference no EPT/AN/Gov/01/2017, the party is seeking to nullify the election and an order for fresh election over allegations of substantial noncompliance with the Electoral Act.

This is just as it has hired top US forensic expert, Joe Mackenzie and 4 Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs) to prosecute its case.

African Peoples Party is alleging multiple thumb printing of ballot papers, false accreditations, manipulations, bribery of electoral officers, adoption of corrupt practices multiple voting as well as over voting.

Joined in the suit are Mr Willie Obiano, the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, as the 1st, 2nd and 3rd respondent respectively.

The party, in a statement issued by its Legal adviser, described Governor Obiano’s government as a caretaker government and further advised him not to celebrate yet as the battle to give Anambrarians a chance to choose their genuine leader.

During the election, there were cases of snatching and stuffing of ballot boxes cum results by thugs/agents of the 1st and 2nd respondents and that the 3rd respondent through its agents who served as Electoral officers, supervisory officers, presiding officers and assistant presiding officers, herein referred to as election officials, connived with the 1st and second respondents through its agents, cronies and thugs to thereby admitted and recorded the illegality obtained election results from the grossly mutilated results sheets, contrary to the electoral act” the petition stated in part.

Military Invasion: Afaraukwu Traditional rulers petitions Buhari, orders probe into Israel Kanu’s whereabouts, return of looted properties













From the Chief Editor || Biafra Writers 

December 14, 2017

ABIA– Traditional rulers representing the three communities in Afaraukwu, Umuahia North Local Government Area of Abia State, the hometown of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, have petitioned President Muhammadu Buhari, demanding an urgent initiation of a full-scale investigation to ascertain the role and extent of damage incurred during the invasion by armed Nigerian soldiers at the palace of His Royal Highness, Eze Israel Kanu.

The revered monarchs in the petition to Buhari which was signed by the President-Generals of the three autonomous communities in Afaraukwu– Levi Ogbonna, Cletus Uwaechi and Chief Ikechukwu Ndubueze, noted that since the military invasion at Kanu’s home, neither HRH, Eze Kanu, his wife, Lolo Sally nor any of their immediate subjects has been seen or heard.

“That since September 14, 2017 the whereabouts of one of our traditional ruler, HRH Eze I. O. Kanu, and members of his family, including some members of Isiama Afaraukwu community, are still unknown,” part of the petition reads.

The monarchs who urged Buhari to initiate prompt action into the matter, further alleged that some members of the community were still missing since the military raid, expressing fears that they might have been killed and their bodies taken away to an unknown destination by the military along with members of IPOB.

The autonomous communities, Okwulaga Enyiukwu and Isiama, insisted that the army should be made to produce their traditional ruler, whom have since gone missing after the raid.

Also part of their demands, included full compensation for the brutal and mindless desecration of the palace and the return of household items allegedly carted away from the palace by the soldiers.

IPOB: BRIGHT CHIMEZIE VS DSS; KANU'S LAWYER ENGAGE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF NIGERIA, MALAMI


13th December, 2017

The Hon. Attorney General of the Federation,
Attorney General Chambers,
Federal Ministry of Justice,
Abuja.

Sir,

RE: MR. BRIGHT CHIMEZIE VS STATE SECURITY SERVICES
SUIT NO: FHC/UY/CS/61/2017
:CONTINUED DETENTION OF BRIGHT CHIMEZIE IN CLEAR VIOLATION OF COURT ORDER
:A THREAT TO DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTION AND AN AFFRONT TO JUDICIAL PROCESS.

Above captioned suit refers.

We are Solicitors to Mr. Bright Chimezie (the Applicant in the above referenced suit) and hereinafter referred to as “Our Client” and on whose definite instruction we enter into this correspondence with your good office.

Our Client was arrested by the operatives of the State Security Services in Uyo,AkwaIbom State, on the 14th day of October, 2016.

Following his continued detention in the most dreaded custody of the SSS, and their refusal to either charge him to Court if he had committed any offence known to Law or release him on bail, we filed an application for the enforcement of his Fundamental Rights in the civil Suit above captioned.

All processes filed in the suit were all served on the State Security Services, before the substantive application was heard on the merit.

By order made in the Suit under reference, His Lordship Hon. Justice IJEOMA L. OJUKWU of Court No 1, Federal High Court Uyo declared; and consequently directed as follows;

1. “That the arrest of the Applicant (Bright Chimezie) on the 14th/10/2016, and his continued detention by the Respondent without granting him bail or being charged to Court is unlawful and a gross violation of his Fundamental Right to personal liberty under Section 35(1 and 93) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

2. That the Respondent is hereby ordered to release the Applicant on bail or charge him before any Court of competent jurisdiction where there is a prima facie case of commission of crime.

3. That since the Law recognizes that where a citizen has been detained above the constitutionally prescribed period without any justification; any subsequent arraignment or charge before a Court of Law does not cure the illegality or abrogate his right to damages, he is entitle to damages for unlawful detention. Therefore the Respondent shall pay the sum of N5,000,000.00 (Five million naira) only, to the Applicant as damages for the unlawful detention of the Applicant from 14/10/2016 till date.”
Herein attached for your ease of reference is the order of Court, made on the 24thday of May 2017, above quoted. It was served on the State Security Services, the receipt of which was duly acknowledged.
On the 30th day of May 2017, a formal communication was submitted with the Director General of the State Security Services, requesting him to obey the order of Court, still the order was treated with brazen contempt and disdain, as our Client was neither releasedon bail, nor charged to Court.

Following the continued detention of our Client in flagrant disobedience ofthe positive orders of the Court, we initiated a formal contempt proceedings against the Director of State Security Services, through the filing and service on them, the requisite statutory forms (Forms 48 and 49), Notice of consequences of disobedience to Court Order, and Notice to show cause why the Director of State Security Services will not be committed to prison for his failure to obey Court Orders.

Also attached for your ease of referenceare the above referred forms.
However, in a desperate but unavailing charade to present an impression of strict compliance with the directives , contained in the order made on the 24th day of May, 2017, the name of the Applicant was smuggled in as the 5th Defendant in charge No: FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015 between FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA VS NNAMDI KANU & ORS.
In the amended chargedated 21st day of June, 2017 and filed on the same date, our Client was charged with two offences to wit: (a) Conspiracy to commit treasonable felony and (b) Improper importation of goods.
The Attorney General is therefore invited to take note of these salient points as a manifestation of obvious acts of malafide on the part of State Security Services, acting under the strict directive of the State;

1. The two Count charge preferred against our Client in the amended charge, contained offences which are ordinarily bailable in law, such that may not warrantor justify the detention of a subject beyond the statutory prescribed period, before being released on bail.

2. Charge No FHC/ABJ/CS/383/2015 above referred was first amended on the 7thday of November 2016, when our Client had spent well over23 daysin the custody of the State Security Services, still he was not joined as a party, if truly he had committed any offence known to Law.

3. The State Security Services suddenly remembered that our Client should be charged to court, only when the Court order compelling them to either release our Client on bail or charge him to Court was served on them on the25thday of May 2017.

4. Since the amendment of the charge on the 21st day of June, 2017 vide the inclusion of our Client as the 5th Defendant in the amended charge, he has not been produced before the Federal High Court seized of the matter for the purposes of taking pleas to the charge, till date.

5. On record, the charge came up on the 17th day of October, 2017,November 20th, 2017, and 5th December, 2017, but on all of the above dates, our client was not produced in Court, neither was the said amended charge ever mentioned in Court.

6. When the plight of our client was formally brought to the attention of the Court, and the facts of the existing Court order of coordinate jurisdiction directing the State Security Services to release him, His Lordship (Hon. Justice Binta Nyako) declined to comment on the amended charge, as according to my noble Lord, Our Client has not been brought before her, so that she cannot assume jurisdiction over a charge that has not been read or mentioned before her.

7. Implicit in the antics of the State Security Services is that they are in law, still holding our client in clear disobedience of positive orders of Court that directed them to release Our Client.
It is more so, when the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended 2011, provides in Section 35(1) (c) & (4) (a) & (b), thus

a. Any person who is arrested or detained in accordance with subsection (1)(c) of this section. For the purpose of bringing him before a Court in execution of the order of a Court or upon reasonable suspicion of his having committed a criminal offence or to such extent as may be reasonably necessary to prevent his committing a criminal offences shall be brought before a Court of Law within a reasonable time, and if he is not tried within a period of;

a. Two months from the date of his arrest or detention in the case of person who is in custody or is not entitled to bail; or

b. Three months from the date of his arrest or detention in the case of a person who has been released on bail.
He shall (without prejudice to any further proceedings that may be brought against him) be releasedeither unconditionally or upon such conditions as are reasonably necessary to ensure that he appears for trial at a later date.
The above provision of the constitution is unequivocal on the length of time a subject can be detained without trial, and his inalienable right to unconditional release when detained in the manner our client has been detained. It is crystal clear that our Client has spent well over 14 months in the custody of the State Security Services without trial. His continued detention is unlawful, illegal and in flagrant violation of both the positive orders of Court and relevant provisions of the Constitution above referred.

It is our respectful submission Sir, that to allow a flagrant disobedience of orders of Court is to strike hard at the foundation of the rule of Law and thereby unwittingly bring about anarchy. See the dictum of ADEREMU JCA in ODUNSI VS ABEKE (2000) All FWLR (Pt. 10) 1625.Justice in its total practical content is truth in action!
Justice is much more than a game of hide and seek. Our Client is therefore entitled to unconditional bail in the prevailing circumstance, and we respectfully urge you Sir, to use your good office to prevail on the State Security Services to release our Client without further ado.


Recall that you are under constitutional Oath as the Chief Law Officer of the Federation, to protect and ensure absolute allegiance to the letters and dictates of the Supreme Law of the land. You can only be failing in the performance of this solemn duty, if after receiving this letter, you still allows our Client to spend another night in the dreaded custody of the State Security Services.

We respectfully observe therefore, that the administration of Justice is the firmest pillar of government. We implore you most respectfully Sir, to respect the sanctity of the judicial process, and accordingly give effect to positive orders of Court of competent jurisdiction by directing the release of Our Client without further prompting.

State Security Services is a creation of the Law and is at all times, expected to operate within the confines of Laws establishing the Agency, and not above the law.
It is the height of executive rascality and brazen impunity to allow positive orders of Court to be treated with disdain and contempt by the very Agency they supervise. It is time to put a stop to this impunity. Harming one’s inalienable right in order to serve any sinister motive is injustice.

Only last week, the President, Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces Federal Republic of Nigeria, Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari, granted state pardon to over 500 (Five hundred) prison inmates, detained on various violent offences in Kano Maximum Security Prison. The freed inmates were further treated with cash gifts containing unspecified sums of Money. While commending the Commander in Chief for such a patriotic act, we respectfully wish to implore the President to extend the same gestures to hundreds of innocent and defenseless members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), largely made up of Youths of Igbo extraction, held across the various prisons in the south East States and Kuje Prison in the Federal Capital Territory,on accounts of phantom charges, frivolous and cooked-up allegations, for merely exercising their constitutional guaranteed Rights to self determination , including our Client who has been held in the custody of the SSS for over 14 months without trial. What is good for the goose is also good for the gander! If the President is a true Nationalist, he should do the needful in this regard, without further prompting. One sided justice will amount to injustice! See the dictum of Oputa JSC of the most blessed memory in WILLOUGHBY VS INTERNATIONAL MERCHANTS BANK (NIG)LTD (1987)1NWLR
In anticipation of your expeditious response in this regard, accept the assurances of our deepest regards.

Yours Faithfully,
FOR: I.C. EJIOFOR & CO.

Awara Junior: An immortal experience as IPOB Gasline Zone, State leadership pays solidarity visit to bereaved family












•Definitely, Biafra must come and I know my people will revenge— Awara at the point of death

•When we remember his sudden demise, our hearts are filled with hate for the Nigerian government and we're poised to defend that cause which he died for at all costs— Gasline Zonal Coordinator



By Eluwa Chidiebere, Reporting For Biafra Writers

December 13, 2017


ABIA— Family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, belonging to Gasline Zone, Aba, Abia State, in conjunction with the State leadership at the weekend, paid homage to the family of one of their deceased member, Ifeanyi Azubuike, popularly known as Awara Junior who lost his precious life to the cold hands of the Nigerian Army during the event for the commemoration of Biafra fallen heroes' and heroines' day at Nkpor, Anambra State, on 30th May, last year.

The remembrance visitation took place in their hometown of Okohia Autonomous Community in Onuimo Local Government Area, Imo State. It was a touching and a heart-rending experience as our Correspondent stood akimbo watching as tears rolled down the cheeks of the mother of Awara Junior, Mrs. Ann Azubuike and other IPOB members.

Ifeanyi Azubuike as recalled, was sent to his early grave by the Dracula Nigerian military for merely exercising his right to self-determination and for rising up for the truth. He was never found with armaments, but only his unflinching love and support for self-determination and standing in for what is right and just.

Two days before the IPOB family took off for the commemoration at Nkpor where Awara was eventually killed, he said, “count me out of that country whose citizens fear truth. A life without freedom is a life devoid of meaning’’.

He refused to build his life on lies and falsehood. Just like the IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu once rightfully put it, “that Biafra will not come by deceits and hallucination but by saying and standing in for the truth always and at all time no matter the consequences,” this giant in the Sun remained truthful and dedicated to the words of his infallible leader till death.

The indomitable and resilient IPOB family in Aba, the Gasline zone in collaboration with Abia State leadership, during their visit, offered food items and other gifts to Mrs. Ann Azubuike, in condolence for the great loss.

The presence of IPOB members brought great joy to Mrs. Azubuike who exchanged pleasantries with her visitors. A mournful procession to the grave of the deceased Ifeanyi Azubuike alias Awara Junior was observed and led by his zonal Coordinator, the coordinator of Gasline Zone Aba, Mr. Bonaventure Ugochukwu Asochukwu. There at the grave, the mother earth was again blessed with tears from his people.

In a chat with our Correspondent, the Gasline Zonal Coordinator who also doubles as the Deputy Coordinator, Aba South LGA, Mr. Bonaventure, assured Mrs. Azubuike that the IPOB family would never forget nor abandon her but will always be there to attend to her needs.

In his words, ‘‘Today the family of IPOB has come to let Mama (Mrs. Ann Azubuike) know that we will never leave her and the family behind. We will not abandon you people. Though your son, our son Ifeanyi is no more here on earth, IPOB has come to let you know that there are still many Ifeanyis who have you in mind. IPOB’s motto is: Onuru Ube Nwanne Agbala Oso’’.

Indeed, an apple does not fall far from its tree. Ugochukwu Asochukwu Bonaventure, the Coordinator of Ifeanyi Azubuike is a man believed to have spent five months in the DSS dungeon alongside Abia State Coordinator Mr. Ugwuoha Ikechukwu for merely exercising their right to self-determination for fatherland Biafra.

Okechukwu Donatus Okeke who is the Abia State welfare principal officer, also gave words of consolation to the bereaved family.

With the actions and modus operandi of IPOB family worldwide under the leadership of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Biafrans have shown that the envisaged Biafra which is still under her restoration process is going to be a beacon of hope of total revolution for the black race not just for the people of Biafra alone. Thanks to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for training millions like him who are ready to stand their grounds for what they believe in, which is Biafra.

Let me remind the Dracula and draconian Nigerian government and her Armed Forces that they are simply chasing shadows by fighting against IPOB and its committed leaders. IPOB can never be defeated; the only message for Nigeria is let them prepare for the worst that is to befall her and her citizens, for the reign of an evil entity like her is as perennial as the grass.

Biafra: The Unabated And Unlawful Detention Of Biafra Activists And The Silence Of World Leaders

















By Chidiebere Eberechi Kalu || For Biafra Writers

December 11, 2017

It has been noted that Nigerians are never comfortable nor happy hearing Biafrans say they are tired of staying in Nigeria and wants out of the union to restore their own ancient nation, Biafra. As a result, they have been fighting very hard to ensure they quell the legitimate agitation for Biafra using whatever guise in their possession. But all their efforts has been met with a hard rock as the Biafra agitation continues to garner more support around the world.

Since the whole macabre drama that ensued when the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was captured and incarcerated by the Nigerian government via its agency, the Department of State Security, DSS, and all myriads of entreaties, including offers made to him to renounce the agitation, was as well, faced with strict resistance, exuding the obvious fact that nothing absolutely could be used or given to measure up for his total freedom and that of his people.

Ever since, Biafrans, especially those indentified as IPOB, have been undergoing series of illegal and extrajudicial arrests, torture, detention, killings and many other inhumane treatments in the hands of the Nigerian government. They have sworn to continue to suppress Biafrans using excessive force and aggression, hence they continued to agitate for their freedom and indeprndence from Nigeria.

Read Also: Nnamdi Kanu: The Stupidity And Unprofessional Conduct Of Buratai, FG, And The Need To “Invoke The Doctrine Of Last Seen

Apart from the IPOB leader, many notable Biafra activists had since been detained unjustly for simply pursuing the cause they believe in. Some Biafrans such as Benjamin Madubugwu, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, David Nwawuisi and Bright Chimezie, amongst others, has been on extrajudicial detention for over two years now without trial. Not forgetting those numbering more that 60 who are incarcerated a Aba Prisons facility. In the case of Bright Chimezie who is currently been detained by the DSS for over two years now, despite a subsisting court order for his release and subsequent compensation for breaching his fundamental rights, by an Uyo Federal High Court.

All these broad daylight impunity and flagrant disregard to the rule of law and judicial sanctity, has continued unabated because the world leaders and those in authority decided to look the other way, pretending that all is well.

Early in September this year, the private residence of Nnamdi Kanu was invaded, attacked and destroyed by men of the Nigerian army but shockingly till today, nothing has been said or done about it. All the evidential killings and violence perpetrated by the Nigerian army and other security agencies against innocent and defenseless Biafrans have been carefully and successfully swept under the carpet while the world leaders and those in authority maintained deafening silence on these heinous crimes committed against humanity.

Biafrans, are therefore asking those campaigning and advocating for world peace and justice sustainability what they have been doing if truly they exist. They should do well by informing us if they do not care about the well-being and plights of Biafrans in Nigeria, so that they can resort to self-help.
