Why You Should Boycott The Elections

By Kutanya Obi Ezeuchu | For Biafra Writers

January 18, 2019

Does anyone ever pause to ponder why all the politicians suddenly become so enthusiastic about elections?

Once it’s election time, some will begin to stage-managedly patronize Okada riders, buy maize and groundnuts in the streets. Some will remember that there’s sachet water to drink. They move around, unilaterally sharing state funds in the streets and markets, trying to woo the citizenry and literally begging people to vote.

They begin to remind you how PVC is your power and how casting a vote is your right.

Why Really?

They do it because unlikely of a politician, they’re saying the truth at that time. It’s actually correct that the PVC is your power. That’s about the only truth you will hear from a politician.

But the problem is, unfortunately as would be expected of a politician, they don’t tell you the whole truth.

For instance, they do not also remind you that “not-casting-a-vote” is equally your fundamental right. They don’t mention to you that you can shatter their fraudulent empires and racketeerings if you withhold that vote. They won’t tell you that as citizens, you’re capable of dismantling their shambolic schemes if you don’t give them the opportunity to plot them by voting.

No! They won’t. Because “not-voting” isn’t of benefit to them but voting is.

That is, they only need you to uphold the fraud for them to continue it. The only thing they need to continue in the fraudulent system is for you to legitimize it. And you can only legitimize it by voting. In other words, you have relinquished your power or given them your power to continue to destroy things and make people’s lives miserable.

The day you wake up to say, “I will no longer vote,” you would have succeeded in taking back your power.

Then they will come begging and asking you what you want. Then you can make your collective demands as a people and which they will implement with usually maximal speed.

But once you vote, they will have a basis for all kinds of fraud and misdemeanor. They will continue to call you fools, laugh at you and say, “they’re not ready for a revolution just yet.”

We need to revolutionize our thinking and ways of doing things. Let’s try something new and drastically different. We have continued to do things the old way and they have not worked and would never work.

Why not try something else?

What do they say about people who do the same thing over and over again even without any changes?

These may sound ridiculously outlandish but same may have also been said of world’s most remarkable inventions today when they were still but dreams.

Eze Ogo: A house-slave going beyond his bounds

By Jeremiah Ukadibia | For Biafra Writers

January 15, 2019

When a butterfly thinks itself a bird, it comes under illusion, and might attempt flying higher to the realm of the birds. In the process, it gets itself into trouble because it would make itself a feast for the birds since at that height it would lose its natural defenses.

The scenario painted above was the recent condition of a certain Eze Ogo of Amangwu Ohafia community in Abia state. He was one of those appointees of the government who think themselves kings because the powers that be branded them as such. He thought himself to be truly a monarch in the real historical sense. And for that reason, he arrogated powers to himself that normally he did not possess.

That was probably why he enacted a law in the community, saying that anyone found engaging in Biafra activities (especially those declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra –a body of Biafrans), would be ostracized.

Last week, he was reported to have enacted a law through which anyone engaged in Biafran activities (especially the ones declared by the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)) would be ostracized from the community. To go against the law, according to his enactment also involves discussing Biafra-related issues. Not only that, he stated that any person found violating this order would be made to pay a fine of N500,000. However, nobody knew whether the payment would be in addition to the banishment or just to be accepted back into the community.

Incidentally, Ohafia is a near town to Abiriba; the place where Justice Ude, an IPOB leader was abducted by the Nigerian ‘terrorist’ Army few days ago. The Deputy governor of the state, Ude Oko Chukwu was accused of being responsible for Ude’s kidnap, and many discerning minds are now beginning to see the connection.

Many Biafrans have wondered the source of the sperm cells that conceived this man in his mother’s womb. The people were convinced that no man with authentic Igbo-Biafran blood would have attempted such folly as he did. They were more convinced the blood that produced him, and which was making him to act the way he was doing, must be from a Fulani, a Yoruba or an Hausa man.

They insist that only a Fulani man would attempt to intimidate or cow his own people in such a manner in order to feed fat from their enemies. That a true Igbo-Biafran is libertarian, democratic, and republican in nature; and as such cannot be cowed by such mere pronouncements. On the other hand, they insist that it is only someone bred in the Yoruba tradition of sale-out will so sacrifice the desires and demands of his own people for crumbs from the Fulani. And finally, the Biafrans berated Eze Ogbo as a possible offspring of an Hausa man, because Hausas have for long succumbed to Fulani intimidation and over-lordship.

But most importantly, the problem this writer sees with this so-called Eze Ogo is that of ignorance, poverty-ravaged mentality, and greed. Ignorant because he did not study nor acknowledge the Igbo-Biafran history of not succumbing to oppression. Poverty-ravaged mentality because as a lazy man, he would not bring himself to work and make money, but was rather contented with receiving crumbs and handouts from those who appointed him as a village head and called him a king. Are kings appointed by governments? And finally, poverty, because he’s lacking a lot of things as a result of his unemployment and lack of self-esteem.

Not only all that, Eze Ogo showed himself to be a shameless Fulani house-slave (and by extension, a British slave); and as such, a butterfly that thinks himself a bird.

It is time these lazy, sleazy political contractors, masquerading as kings in Biafraland go to get themselves some paying jobs. Igbo/Biafraland is not the same thing with Arewa and Yoruba lands where lazy individuals are given kings to feed fat on other people’s sweat by their colonial overlords.

The latest report is that he has rescinded his immature and inordinate declaration and has asked Biafrans for forgiveness, claiming he was misled by politicians. We shall continue to watch him closely to see if he has truly changed.

IPOB: How Biafra Government system will be

Published on | The Biafra Times 

January 14, 2019

During the interactive session with our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on 12th January, 2019, OWEI KEME BRADIKUMO asked a question:

1) What is the proposed CONSTITUTION of the upcoming UNITED STATES of BIAFRA. Can we get a draft copy of it in the public domain now that will be necessary before our campaign towards the pending globally accepted BIAFRA REFERENDUM?

Response from MAZI NNAMDI KANU:
Biafra will run a unique political system designed to carter for the needs of our people.

We are going to have NATION STATES. We will have an IGBO NATION WITHIN BIAFRA. We will have an EFIK NATION WITHIN BIAFRA. We will have ANNANG NATION WITHIN BIAFRA, if they so choose. We will also have IJAW NATION WITHIN BIAFRA. We will have ISOKO NATION WITHIN BIAFRA. We will have IDOMA NATION WITHIN BIAFRA. We will have IGALA NATION WITHIN BIAFRA. Listen to this: THEY WILL ALL BE AUTONOMOUS. Each Nation State will control the resources in their own land. The only thing that will bind us together will be a COMMON DEFENSE POLICY, COMMON ECONOMIC POLICY, COMMON POLICY IN HEALTH AND EDUCATION. In the rest, let people develop according to the pace that they wish or they decided amongst themselves to go by.

LAWS WILL BE DONE IN LOCAL LANGUAGES. Igbo Parliament will make their own laws in Igbo language. Ijaw Parliament will make their own laws in Ijaw language. The same thing applies to Ibibio and others. So that when people are lying to us we will know because you know lying is good in English Language. But you can't deceive the people when you are actually speaking in the language that they understand.

What we are going to have in Biafra will be A BRAND NEW NATION WITH NEW IDEAS AND NEW WAYS OF DOING THINGS. Our political arrangements will be geared towards addressing our core needs.

Igbo Land will have a Prime Minister. The same thing will happen to Ijaw, to Isoko, to Urhobo, to Itshekiri. Everybody will be Autonomous from one another to develop at the pace that they like. That is the type of Biafra we are seeking to have. And that is the type of Biafra we are going to have.

‘Only Biafra can save Justice Onnoghen’ – Nnamdi Kanu

...Slams those saying Calabar’s not part of Biafra

By Chukwuemeka Chimerue, Chief Editor | The Biafra Times

January 13, 2019

ISRAEL – Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has reacted to the travails of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen, saying only Biafra can save the embattled Chief Judge.

It was widely reported yesterday that the Federal Government of Nigeria and the All Progressives Congress, APC, led by President Muhammadu Buhari, ordered Justice Onnoghen to immediately vacate office over allegations of false assets declaration.

It was further learnt that the government will on Monday, January 14, 2019, arraign Justice Onnoghen before the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital on charges of failures to declare his assets as required by law and for operating Bank Domiciliary Foreign Currency Accounts.

The charges against the CJN has already been filed and served on him last Friday at his official residence in the Federal Capital Territory preparatory for his appearance at the tribunal.

Reacting to the development during a live interactive session on Radio Biafra Saturday evening, Kanu said the move against Justice Onnoghen clearly shows that the Buhari-led government wants “Fulanis” to control every sector in the country.

In his words: “The reason they want to sack Onnoghen is because they want every APC case that finds its way to Supreme Court will automatically win.

“Only Biafra can save Justice Onnoghen. They(Fulanis) want everything – the Army, the Police, everything. Anybody from Efik, Ibibio after today if you rise up against Biafra after what they have done to Onnoghen, I will know you are not fit to be called a human being.

“Cross River people will say leave us alone, Cross River is not part of Biafra, they want to dominate; now that they have removed Justice Onnoghen what are you going to do?

“If you know anybody who is related to Onnoghen or from Cross River state or Akwa Ibom, Efik, Ibibio and Oron, you must now open your eyes very clearly and see what is in store for you.

“They killed Ken Saro Wiwa and nobody said anything, they will do it to you. Our only hope is Biafra and that I stand.”

Biafra: Why Enugu IPOB volunteer officer was abducted by DSS, Army – Coordinator

By Chukwuemeka Chimerue, Chief Editor | The Biafra Times

January 11, 2019

ENUGU - Coordinator of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, who was harassed and beaten by operatives of the Department of State Security, DSS and the Army has explained reasons for the early morning abduction of Enugu State IPOB volunteer officer, Uchenna Emenike.

Mazi Uchenna Emenike was reportedly taken away by the combined team of the Army and DSS when they burst into the residence of the coordinator (name withheld) at the early hours of 1:15am in a Gestapo like manner and concluded their operations at exactly 3:33am on January 9, 2019.

The sudden, forceful invasion of the vicinity frightened residence and neighbors as the DSS and army personnel broke down the doors of all the occupants of the building while searching for Emenike who was also in the same building with the coordinator.

The security personnel asked the coordinator what he was hiding from them after beating him to pulp with ply woods and handcuffs. Emenike was eventually abducted and taken away to an unknown destination.

However, according to the coordinator, Emenike’s arrest was being expected as the Nigerian security operatives has been on his trail on matters not unconnected with IPOB’s solemn call for citizens to boycott the February 16 presidential election and subsequent elections in Biafraland.

It was due to the threat and possible arrest that forced the volunteer officer to seek protection at the residence of the coordinator, yet they were able to locate him.

It was also gathered that Emenike couldn’t have been taken too far as the identity of the DSS personnel whom were of the Igbo ethnic group could be ascertained apart from the Fulani soldiers that accompanied them in the attack.


Governor Umahi and his wild accusation against IPOB

By Dave O. Umahi | For Biafra Writers

January 10, 2019

Dave Umahi, the current governor of Ebonyi state, shocked Biafrans few days ago. This was as a result of a viral news report, where the governor claimed that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) – which is the umbrella body of Biafrans agitating for a free independent state – has plans to kidnap him and other governors of the Southeast region.

The governor who also doubles as the Chairman South East governors’ forum reportedly made the claim while calling on the Nigerian Army to be neutral, apolitical, and avoid every form of interference into the upcoming 2019 general elections in the country.

Meanwhile, the irony in the unfounded and baseless claim of the Fulani-enslaved governor is rather than what is alleged, the Biafrans have been and continued to be at the receiving end of kidnappings, enforced disappearances, and killings at the hands of the Nigerian Army, usually instigated by these so-called governors.

The army first went to Abiriba in Abia State to abduct a known IPOB member, Justice Udeh, in what eyewitness accounts described as “commando style” operation. Udeh, we gathered, was a gentle and peaceful Biafran who was not just happy with the way Biafrans are being treated in Nigeria. Biafra Writers’ investigation further revealed that information leading to the abduction of Ude was from the State Deputy Governor, Ude Oko Chukwu. Up till the time of going to press, the whereabouts of Ude is still unknown. To make matters worse, as IPOB leaders had said, he had not been brought to court, which is an abridgement of his rights and the legal requirements according to the Nigerian law.

The abuction of Ude was followed (much in the same pattern) by that of Emma Chigbo from Abakpa Nike, in Enugu, Enugu State. To many Biafrans who spoke on the matter, it was more like pouring salt to injury for Umahi and his fellow Nigerian governors in Biafraland to organize illegal abduction of Biafrans and then turn around to accuse them of “planning to kidnap them.”

John Ukachi(not his real name), who is a Biafran leader within Enugu metropolis, told our correspondent that Umahi and his fellow governors were just looking for excuses to justify their wicked plans against Biafra agitators who have remained resolute and refused to either compromise or give up their cause. He explained that they(the governors) were frightened.

Part of his words read: “The fact is that these governors and their fellow Nigerian politicians operating in Biafraland are afraid that the truth will come to the knowledge of the world that Biafrans truly want out of Nigeria.

“You know we are campaigning for the boycott of the elections, and by the way IPOB has saturated the land with our massive and convincing campaigns, they are outraged and frightened. That is why they are inviting the Nigerian Army of occupation to come and massacre our people to submission so that our campaigns will stop.

“Can you believe it, that people who call themselves our brothers have beckoned on foreigners to come to our land to abduct their people, kill them, and then concoct lies to cover their tracks? But that’s what is happening.”

Ukachi called on world leaders and people of conscience all over the world to consider the Umahi accusation from the backdrop of an IPOB that has never been violent all these years and has refused to denounce the struggle for an independent Biafra state.

He added that one fact the world should not ignore is that IPOB has neither killed anybody nor destroyed anything – either belonging to government or individuals – since it burst into world’s consciousness.

However, looking at the issue from a different perspective, IPOB lawyer, Uche Ejiofor said what was happening was early manifestation of a grand design to rig the Nigerian election and divert attention from their inability or unwillingness to confront Boko Haram by the government. He said there was no justification for deploying the military in peaceful Biafra, while the police are sent to confront Boko Haram that has been ravaging the North.
