Kanu’s whereabouts: IPOB drags Orji Uzor Kalu to court over prejudicial statements


The Biafra Times | September 20, 2018

During a recent visit to former Military Head of State, designed to garner support for the sinking All Progressive Congress (APC), Orji Uzor Kalu used the opportunity presented by the visit to announce to the world, that Our Client (Nnamdi Kanu) “is in London.”

It will be recalled that in 2017, similar fancy dummy was sold to the members of the public by Alhaji Orji Uzor Kalu, but when confronted with impeccable fact on the whereabouts of our Client (Nnamdi Kanu), he quickly denied the statement in apparent volte-face, and claimed that he was quoted out of context.

It is no longer news that Orji Uzor Kalu who recently jumped bail in a multiple case of humungous fraud he perpetrated while at the helms of affairs in Abia State re-echoed this uninformed view to attract cheap political relevance/gains, but in view of the troubling impact of such extra-judicial pronouncement on various court actions we filed against the military and Nigeria Government, to produce our Client; there becomes compelling need to join Orji Uzor Kalu in these pending suits to compel him to appear before the Federal High Court and give evidence on oath about what he know.

As we kick-start the process of dragging Alhaji  Orji Uzor Kalu before the court to throw light on this high powered State conspiracy that lead to murderous invasion of our Client’s home on the 14th day of September 2017, and the genocidal massacre of over 1000 (one thousand) members of IPOB in and around Afaraukwu kingdom during the dreaded operation python dance, we however wish to state that we are not unmindful of the firm resolve by the EFCC to effectively prosecute to its logical conclusion the proven case of brazen desecration of Abia State treasury/vault by Alhaji Kalu during his inglorious days in Abia State Government house.

But for the passionate appeal, and undertakings by Kalu’s lawyer to produce him in court at the next adjourned date, Orji-Uzo Kalu would have been cooling off in the prison custody by now, for jumping bail in the celebrated criminal charge hanging on his neck. This is a Man whose reason for running away from his criminal trial as explained in his letter for adjournment, was premised on a purported  medical appointment in Germany; a phantom surgery that only existed in Mr. Kalu’s imagination, all designed to subvert judicial process.

The present falsehood Orji Uzo Kalu is mischievously dishing out to the gullible is not unconnected to a well designed political strategy for atonement for his multiple sins. If the intendment of trading on this falsehood is to deter the most resolute Magu, he is getting it wrong in its entirety, as EFCC under Magu is strong in their conviction that every penny of Abia State loot still in the private vault of Orji Uzo Kalu must be recovered.

The naked truth is that Orji Uzor Kalu has lost all political value and relevance in his region and cannot even win a House of Assembly seat today if presented himself for an election.  APC Government should take note of this dwindling profile, and of particular interest is the fact that Orji Uzor Kalu is living in his past glory and cannot secure a single vote for them in the South East States come 2019.

The emerging facts has exposed the conspiratorial/ignoble role played by Orji Uzor Kalu in the proven case of State-sponsored terrorism that took place in our client’s home on the 14th day of September 2017. The murderous invasion of our Client’s home on the 14th day of September 2017, the genocidal massacre of over 50 defenseless/unarmed members of the indigenous people of Biafra therein; the abduction/kidnapping of our Client (Nnamdi Kanu) on this black day, by the rampaging Nigerian soldiers has been classified/labeled a crime against humanity by responsible foreign Governments and institutions, and roundly condemned by people of good conscience too.

May I use this medium to most solemnly appeal to Orji Uzor Kalu to assist the traumatized families of the victims of Operation Python Dance with useful information on the whereabouts of their loved ones, still missing till date. Specifics on the identities of the forest where their decomposed bodies can be found will be very useful. We are making this passionate appeal against the background of the emerging facts which suggest that Orji Uzor Kalu tacitly participated in this dreaded Operation Python Dance.

Going forward in this macabre dance, Orji Uzor Kalu should await further communication from court as he has declared himself party interested by virtue of his present unguarded utterances.

We are not oblivious of the desperation by the Nigerian Government to divert attention of the comity of Nations, and global human rights group, who are unanimous in their demands for the release of Nnamdi Kanu. Recent pronouncement by a certified agent of the State in the person of Orji Uzor Kalu is a veritable ploy deployed to change this narrative.

But let it be strongly noted that there is no amount of diversionary tactics employed by the State that can suppress the heart-wrenching realities of how our client was brazenly abducted in his home on the 14th day of September 2017, by the soldiers. The world is well informed about this crime against humanity.

Amnesty International reports which roundly indicted Nigerian soldiers for the genocidal massacre of unarmed and defenseless members of IPOB in the home of our Client on the 14th day of September 2017, and his abduction on this fateful day, would have been helpful to Orji Uzor Kanu if his intention was not to cause mischief.

A strong message has been sent out to the world vide the recent successful sit-at-home observed across the states of Nigeria, and world in general by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in honor of thousands of their members massacred during the murderous invasion of our Client’s home and Afaraukwu Kingdom, by Nigerian Soldiers, and to reiterate their demand for unconditional release of their Leader (Nnamdi Kanu) who was abducted in his home by the Soldiers during this deadly Operation Python Dance.

We urge the general public to treat with greatest circumspect the present falsehood being peddled by Orji Uzor Kalu as he is merely acting a script written by the Federal Government to divert attention. Nnamdi Kanu is in the custody of the Military and must be produced in good condition.

Thank You
Bar. Ifeanyi Ejiofor
(Nnamdi Kanu’s Lawyer and IPOB General Counsel)

Biafra: IPOB proscribes Ohanaeze, South East governors, bans group activities in the East"


September 19, 2018

IPOB Press Statement |Published on The Biafra Times 

By virtue of the overwhelming compliance with the 14th of September 2018 Sit-At-Home order issued by IPOB and the mandate conferred therein as the authentic representative of the people of the east, we the Indigenous People of Biafra do hereby declare the proscription of Ohanaeze Ndigbo and all other gatherings of saboteurs and collaborators operating within Biafra. In keeping with the spirit of this declaration, we warn that anybody or group of persons working with Nnia Nwodo led Ohaneze Ndigbo or South East Governors Forum is doing so at their own risk. These two groups (Ohaneze & South East governors) do not represent the people of the east and lack the popular mandate to do so. Events of September 14, is confirmation that our people have rejected their politics of acquiescence, servitude and slavery.          
                        

                           
Ohaneze Ndigbo was formed in 1976 to destabilize the progressive established order under the leadership of Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe in the run up to 1979 democratic rule. The few surviving founding members of Ohanaeze will attest to this undisputed fact. To weaken the post war cohesion that still existed among the people of the east, Fulani caliphate gathered their Igbo agents together to destroy the east from within. With what Ohaneze has become in recent times, there is little doubt that our oppressors succeeded in holding us down through their agents in Ohaneze and governor's lodges.



Contrary to public perception, Ohaneze Ndigbo is not a creation of Igbo people but rather is an assemblage of high profile traitors during the war, with the exception of Dr. Akanu Ibiam. It was a group engineered by Arewa north to provide the east with false leadership. From inception, Ohaneze Ndigbo has been answerable to Arewa North not to the people of the east. No Ohaneze Ndigbo leader can emerge without the blessing of the northern ruling class.



It was this same Ohaneze Ndigbo that took money from their Northern masters to allow three Igbo speaking local governments from Ebonyi to be carved into Benue State. The same Ohaneze Sat and did nothing as Obigbo, Egbema and the rest of Igbo speaking people were gerrymandered into Rivers State and Delta State to be categorised as South South. They abandoned Igboakiri (Igbanke) to Ogbemudia and his Northern masters, that made an Igbo territory part of Edo State. They betrayed Anioma people by repeatedly refusing to fight for their absorption into the core Igbo family. Today we have families in Egbema divided along state lines. Some people in the same family, with the same surname find themselves in two distinct geo-political zones. Some are South East the other is Niger Delta. This is an unpardonable crime by Ohaneze Ndigbo against the land and the people.



With over 90 per cent compliance to the IPOB sit-at-home order, including Enugu and Ebonyi State as evidenced by photos obtained from the server of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, it has been confirmed beyond every reasonable doubt that all parts of Biafraland complied with the order. By so doing, Biafrans conferred a historic and unprecedented mandate on IPOB to pilot the affairs of the Eastern Region.



All efforts by South East governors to use financial inducement and media misinformation to fool the people into thinking some parts of Biafra did not comply with the order has been laid bare by secret photos of empty Enugu streets taken by NAN which they conspiratorially failed to publish. The existence of these NAN photos confirms what we have always known, that South East governors decided to wage media war to discredit a successful exercise once it dawned on them that IPOB command the loyalty and mandate of the people.

Nothing under sun shall remain concealed forever. News Agency of Nigeria must be compelled to publish all pictures it took of northern Biafran territories on the morning of September 14, 2018. If compliance was not 100% as they claim, why have they refused to officially publish their own pictures? If they have any shred of credibility left, News Agency of Nigeria should state if any of the pictures published alongside this press release is not part of the many pictures they took of empty Enugu streets on the mid-morning of September 14?

In as much as the the people of the east is concerned, Ohaneze Ndigbo no longer exist, but only on paper. Henceforth any public gathering organised by them will be disrupted. The era of traitors and collaborators presiding over the affairs of the people of the east has come to an end.

IPOB: SEPTEMBER 14 IPOB GENERAL STRIKE WAS A HUGE SUCCESS

Anti-kidnapping agency worse than SARS in Nigeria - RINCS leader, Gen. Hellfire



By Chukwuemeka Chimerue, Chief Editor | The Biafra Times

September 19, 2018

ENUGU - GENERAL Miracle Hellfire, leader of a revolutionary strike force, Revenge Incorporated, RINCS, has disclosed that the activities of the Anti-kidnapping agency of the Nigeria Police Force is far more deadlier and inhumane than that of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, in the country.

Gen. Hellfire who spoke exclusively to our correspondent on Monday, noted in particular that the Anti-kidnapping unit in Enugu state has become some sort of an abattoir where innocent people captured by the agency are slaughtered for money.

Decrying the extrajudicial killings of innocent civilians by the agency, the RINCS leader condemned in totality, a situation whereby innocent citizens captured by operatives of the Anti-kidnapping agency in the state are tortured and compelled to accept crimes they did not commit simply because ‘they are ignorant of the law.’

He explained that some of these victims who are usually killed mostly at nights by the agency are butchered and sensitive parts of their bodies sold to desperate politicians in Nigeria, thereby making it impossible for the families of the victims to recover and bury the corpse of their deceased.

He, therefore, warned citizens who have issues with the agency to rush to the courts to seek redress, saying that is the only way to prevent them from being killed by the blood-thirsty agency as they always persuade their captives against employing the services of a legal practitioner.

“It’s quite unfortunate that the same evil and crimes against humanity we have witnessed in the SARS has taken a far deadlier dimension in the Anti-kidnapping agency, particularly in Enugu and other places where the politicians and the authorities that be are using the department to carry out various nefarious activities.

“So many people who are innocent of any crime are being caught. The issue here now is that we have come to the knowledge that all that glitters outside is not gold. Our people are so naïve and myopic. Many of our people are ready to die protecting and preserving the seemingly right things, not knowing that most of the time, they’re being enslaved against their own will. Laws are made but how many people keep them? That is the issue.

“Just like we found out what is happening at SARS, we also have discovered that the Anti-kidnapping agency flaunting as fighting against kidnappers and criminals are actually kidnappers themselves. They have been abducting innocent people, especially those returning late.

“They carry their captives, knowing that by intimidation, they couldn’t be able to do anything except on some situation whereby the victim has personalities behind them as relatives or well-wishers. And when they capture and take them, they label them anything. A helpless person, who doesn’t know how to go about certain things, what can he do? He’ll resign to fate.

“Many a time, these victims are slaughtered like goats, claiming they were criminals because they don’t know the law. Sometimes, they’re even subjected to a point where the victims themselves even believe that they are criminals because they don’t know the law. They not only torture their victims to agree or accept what they’re not,  they’re still being killed and we just found out that when these people are killed or eliminated, they do not usually handover their dead bodies to their families who most of the time are unaware of what happened to their loved ones or where he or she has been.

“Most of the time, the Anti-kidnapping agents take these dead bodies to their butchery, sometimes to outlets or in a cave, sometimes to Porsche houses where they have backyards. There, they cut and dissect the dead parts of their victims and sold to politicians and ritualists. This cannot continue to happen. One of such places is the Anti-kidnapping unit in Enugu, Port Harcourt, Abakaliki, Benin, Lagos, and Bayelsa,” Hellfire disclosed.

He also painted a scenario of a recent incident in Bayelsa where agents of the Anti-kidnapping unit, unlawfully arrested a boy during the late hours and headed to an unknown destination outside the state.

According to him, “In Bayelsa, a boy was picked up in the night. He only came to see off his cousin who was running late. As he was about to return, they(Anti-kidnapping squad) blocked him and began to interrogate him. The boy flashed his ID card and explained who he was. They collected the ID from him and slapped him. They dragged him to their hilux van and drove him outside Bayelsa.

“It was when he saw the movement of these criminals, he now began to speak in his dialect, calling the gods of his land, saying if this is how he’s going to end, let it be known that he never committed any offence. One of the personnel who was the first that slapped him inquired where he came from. It turned out that the personnel that slapped him was just from a village, a stone throw from his own.

“The personnel told the driver to stop. He told them that this boy has to go and explained that the village the boy came from is after his own and that the kind of power they have there, they’ll not escape if they look for this boy and didn’t find him.

“Now, those who are not part of the system, what will they do? That is why I decided to let the world know, to let the quarters know because most of the people that claimed to be elders are still in the same cult system but let individual citizens know and realize that they have to defend themselves.

“If there’s anybody that he or her guardian, or relatives, brother, sister or wife, has any case with Anti-kidnapping, they should do everything humanly possible to storm that place. If possible, force that case to go to court. They might tell you not to tell anybody, it’s all lies. They collect money and tell people not to call or involve their lawyers or human rights activists. These are their system of operation and when they kill these people, you’ll not be there. So, that is why the appropriate quarters should be informed. The law court is the appropriate body that will determine who is guilty or not, who is to be killed and who is to be sentenced to life or certain years in prison. The Anti-kidnapping agency in Enugu and other places are trading with people’s lives.”

Unmasking the hoax behind the viral message urging Ndigbo to promote the BBC-Igbo service



By Kutanya Obi Ezeuchu | For Biafra Writer

September 19, 2018

"A few months ago, a message was seen circulating on the social media, urging Ndigbo to promote the Igbo service of the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC-Igbo, obviously because of the poor patronage it has experienced. However, the low patronage which the BBC-Igbo is experiencing, is well-deserved. The Igbos boycotted the service because they perfectly understand that it is not in their genuine interest."

For your information, BBC Igbo service was launched several months ago, roundabout the first quarter of the year and so it isn't a new development.

Firstly, no one begged or is begging the BBC to run the Igbo service, so it's only running its business as usual and certainly not genuinely for the benefit of Ndigbo.

Secondly, do you know that BBC Hausa service had been in existence for several decades? Why didn't the BBC launch the Igbo service all along? Instead, it waited till it realized that Ndigbo are now more than ever serious with their clamour for Biafra before it came up with this Greek gift cloaked in BBC Igbo service.

Thirdly, are you aware that BBC Hausa is domiciled in the north (Hausa area), BBC Yoruba domiciled in the west (Yoruba area)? So why did the British Broadcasting Corporation situate the BBC-Igbo yet in the western region (Yoruba speaking region) instead of the East (Igbo heartland or other parts of Biafraland)? It's only the gullible ones that will fail to see clearly, the continued evil machinations of the British mouthpiece (the BBC). The BBC is well aware that the decision to establish BBC Igbo has a malicious intent and so it chose to establish it outside the Igbo heartland because it believes there could be a possibility of an uproar or reprisal by angry Igbo or other Biafran youths, when it generates and dishes out its characteristic false and anti-Igbo propaganda.

READ ALSO: Biafra: The Monsters, The Murdered And The Mourners

Fourthly, are we now to be promoting the British mouthpiece with our own resources simply because out of the blues, it pretends to promote the Igbo language when with our ingenuity, finesse and dynamism, we can establish ours, fund and support it to become an unparalleled, world-class media outfit? For your information, Radio Biafra London and Biafra TV has been running and expanding for several years now and certainly, doing a marvellous job as the mouthpiece of the Igbos and the entire Biafran populace. The most honourable thing to do will be to fund and support our own, instead of promoting a heavily biased colonial media edifice with a track record of hatred for Ndigbo and which has long been an effective tool for Igbo subjugation, simply because they pretentiously claim to promote the Igbo language.

For your information, the BBC can be viciously smart. They understand how patriotic the Igbo man can be when it comes to anything Igbo, how Ndigbo are ready to support or promote anything that possesses an Igbo theme. They're also aware of the amount of popularity that Radio Biafra London has gained in the past few years, especially when it was being anchored by the Biafran leader, Nnamdi Kanu, when on multiple occasions, it trended as the most popular or the most listened-to Radio Station in the world, because majority of Biafrans and other well-meaning people around the world listened to and supported it as it's our own. Even search engines such as Google had "Radio Biafra" as one of the most-searched terms. Therefore, the BBC is at its gimmicks once again, trying to capitalize on the sentimentality of Ndigbo to generate cyber traffic for the heavily biased British mouthpiece.

Even the good people of Britain are not left out in the knowledge that the British state media - the BBC, is heavily biased and therefore lacks credibility. As a result, a good majority of the British people recently stormed the cyberspace, to protest the state media's bias, fake, unbalanced reportage and distortion of facts with the hashtag #BbcSwitchOff.

READ ALSO: 2019: Voters Are To Be Blamed For Killings In Nigeria

In conclusion, it would be a cause for concern and a failure on the part of Ndigbo to rely on the notorious and heavily biased BBC to promote the Igbo language for Ndigbo. If the BBC is so genuinely concerned about the well-being of Ndigbo, why did it not establish BBC Igbo in Igbo heartland or other parts of Biafraland? Also, recall that it was the BBC that generated and promoted the malicious and vindictive drug abuse propaganda that eventually resulted in the unfair shutdown of an Igbo business establishment – Emzor pharmaceuticals company.

The USA has VOA and other media outfits as its own mouthpiece, Arab nations have Aljazeera as their mouthpiece, the French have France24, the Chinese have CCTVNews and so do so many others. Therefore, why should Ndigbo rely on the BBC to be their mouthpiece when they are more than capable to establish and run a powerful and matchless media infrastructure? Have we now become so incapacitated that we rely on the same tool of our misery and destruction to speak for us?

We sincerely thank the BBC for its kindness and for offering to help promote the Igbo language. However, if the BBC is so kind, it should concern itself with teaching Ndigbo “how to fish” instead of just giving us fish. What Ndigbo want is an independent Biafran nation and not some ‘language-promotion service’ by BBC Igbo service.

Radio Biafra and Biafra TV is ours and is already doing a great job, we can make them more powerful and so won't need someone else to tell our stories for us.

For The Love Of Dogged Perseverance And Due Justice: A Protest Letter By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu To President Donald Trump, The U.S Congress And The Judiciary



September 18, 2018



Your Honorable Excellencies,

I am acutely humbled and intensively galvanized to present you with this letter. With all my heart, I must embrace the unparalleled truth by commending the leadership crew of the United States of America and her law-abiding citizens for the following reasons; the great sacrifice paid during the journey to independence, for maintaining such a galore of unity amongst the rich heritage states without force or killing and lastly for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital city of the Most High God. It would be an affront to history and posterity for me not to endorse the rocketing fact that this great country has proudly practiced true federalism which evidently has enabled her to be a strong country well-stocked with heroic and outstanding discoveries ever known to man. I admire such a great country.

As Thomas Jeffersonʼs introductory words depict, “we hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights,” these undebatable facts from Jefferson would echo most strongly throughout generations to come. I believe that it is on these simple truths that the United States of America has progressed and excelled in all facets of life. Hence, feudalism is totally off the hook of the American government modus operandi.

On the state of the African continent, the struggle of the United States to see that Africa is remodelled into a promising continent devoid of terrorism, underdevelopment and generally backwardness, is profitably felt. But the Africa of today as seen by many has become vulnerable to countries of dubious character who came-in to destabilize, ruin and jeopardize her development by delving into her politics through their ‘warrant chiefs,’ parading as leaders. These parasitic countries with the epic help of their warrant chiefs have perfected plans on how to continue duping good countries like the United States that harbours good dreams for the black continent.

As you may likely know that discussing Africa’s evolution without Nigeria appearing on the bigger picture would be complicitly incomplete. As Gbemisola Adeoti, a revered lecturer in one of Nigeria’s most celebrated universities called Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) would metaphorically present Nigeria as an ‘ambusher’ of her dreams and that of Africa in general. It is with a heart devoid of pretence that I appeal to your humble offices to x-ray the state of Nigeria so as to exhume the simple solution to her ills. Before that, I have some suggestions to make.

The emphatic truth carved in stone is that the rain beating the black continent today is as a result of the partitioning of the African territories against their natural boundaries. This is otherwise known to scholars today as ‘Scramble for Africa.’ In Nigeria, as a creation of the British colony, it is still this villainous controversial gathering of the world’s leading European powers in what is known today as the Berlin Conference of 1885 that precipitated the creation of new boundaries that caused great violence to Africa’s ancient societies, top of the list is the defunct Republic of Biafra which Biafrans today are struggling to resurrect. That same gathering resulted in the creation of tension-prone states like the Nigeria we see today.

As the Holy Bible would succinctly put it clear in Psalm 11:3 that: “Foundation once destroyed, what can the righteous do?” This would propel me to state unequivocally here that the aids been rendered by the United States of America to the Nigerian government in the fight against terrorism which is second to none in history are all efforts in futility until the United States revisits the foundation which brought Nigeria into existence in order to accurately ascertain the real disease which is the ‘incompatibility’ of ethnic nationals that constituted the Nigerian state which was somewhat a byproduct of the Berlin Conference of 1885. Nigeria as an embodiment of distinct nationalities is duly ripe to be subjected to a credible and independent referendum to put an end to all the problems/crises bedevilling the Nigerian state once and for all. Just as her creator, Fredrick Lugard rightly confessed that northern Nigeria and its southern region are like oil and water which can never mix together, l make bold to say that subjecting Nigeria to a referendum is the only panacea to ending Nigeria’s societal ills and that of Africa in general.

In words of one syllable, I would like to bring to the attention of the American government that helping Nigeria in any aspect is beginning to dent America’s image. People around the world are harboring this feeling that the United States is only interested in making huge profit by selling guns and military hardwares to Africa (Nigeria) in the guise of aiding in the fight against terrorism and protection of Africa (Nigeria). Your honourable Excellencies, Africa is asking for food not dopes. I think the sagely unity that the United States of America is enjoying today was not and is not achieved through guns and bullets (force). It is against the law of nature to sell ammunition to a hungry continent (people) which they will, in turn, end up utilizing to further terrorize and destroy defenseless and unarmed fellow citizens in their midst and not to fight against terrorism as expected of them.

We must admit that there was a country in Africa which would have changed Africa. Africa would have largely benefited from the Biafra sovereignty, as a result of its human and material resources. If you take time to study the present state of Nigeria today, it would dawn on sane-minded people that the defeat of Biafra is not a victory for the Nigerian people but for the British government and the neo-colonialists like Soviet. Going by their tremendous inventions and heroic activities during the war, one doesn’t need to be convinced that if such a nation that believes in liberalism was allowed by countries such as Britain, Russia, Egypt and others to emerge, they would have transformed the Africa of today to something much better. Just as the state of Israel whom they share same rich heritage with, is used as an example in the Middle East, so also the state of Biafra would have been to the black continent. Indeed as most people would assert, “In Biafra, Africa died.”

Biafra war remains the most horrific war ever in human history given to the holy and miraculous events that took place. I am talking about the first televised war in history. A war that must have made God ‘sick.’ A war that killed more vulnerable people like children and elderly persons than soldiers. Your excellencies, sorry, it’s so annoying and pathetic to remember. We have not forgotten the courageous Bruce Mayrock that set himself ablaze in front of the UN building after seeing how the Biafran people were been massacred. Even as a child during the Biafra war, Steve Jobs lost faith in God after seeing the hunting images of the starved children of Biafra.

Isn’t it awful that while the British government may consider as genocide, the massacre of a few hundred English people, that figure may rise to a few thousand in relation to other European nations and a few million for African nations. Britain deliberately created a society that would live in division; a society that will always be against itself. For a federation to work, no one group will have the advantage of relying on its unaided strength, but in Nigeria, Britain made the northern part to rely on the southern part of the country. In essence, the southern part of Nigeria is the beautiful bride supplying every need of the northern part and that has made the forced and unconsented union difficult for a divorce. Britain gave power to the north that practices feudalism in order to continue milking the enormous mineral resources from the Biafra region and using it to enhance, strengthen and rejuvenate their suffocated and dying economy.

This time around, the Biafran people are poised for their total independence from the contraption. They are following the rules and guidelines laid down by the United Nations General Assembly in pursuit of genuine freedom and self-determination. Yet, Biafrans are been massacred in their numbers, some are being bathed with acidic substances while many others were subjected to drink and swim in muddy water by the Nigerian soldiers. Their mothers are being molested and raped by the Nigerian army and sometimes by the Fulani herdsmen who are of northern extraction. To this end, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and his aged parents are still been held in confinement by the Nigerian military who invaded his house on 14th September 2017 against court orders. In this unwarranted invasion, 28 Biafrans who came to visit the IPOB leader died by the lethal bullets of these unprofessional soldiers. The wounds are too numerous to mention here. But amidst of all these obnoxious treatments meted on them, the Biafrans has remained peaceful in their quest.

For the love of dogged perseverance and due justice, your Excellencies, it is time to give the brave and good people of Biafra their overdue independence. This can be done through a referendum. A call for referendum is not a call for war. But if the Nigerian government wants war, we will not fold our arms. We held them with Britain, Russia and other foreign countries for three good years; we are equal to the task.

We urge you to stop the bloodshed in Nigeria; not by supplying them with guns and bullets but by subjecting her to a referendum. That would start with the Biafra referendum.

God bless the United States of America, God bless the United States of Biafra and God bless the state of Israel.

Yours’ Most Sincerely,
Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu

Biafra: The Monsters, The Murdered And The Mourners



By Chuba Ebenezer | For Biafra Writers

September 18, 2018 

On the 14th September 2018, Biafrans in Southeast and South-South regions in Nigeria, observed one-day strike action (sit-at-home) in honour of our kith and kin brutally murdered by the Nigerian Islamic military forces during the Operation Python Dance II. It was declared not only to mourn hundreds of our youths that fell victims to the reckless and lawless invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s residence in Afara-Ukwu Umuahia, Abia state which contributed to the death of some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and abduction of Kanu and his aged parents, but to always  evaluate the activities of the saboteurs and betrayers among us who, because of political patronage and peanuts they receive from the Hausa/Fulani oligarchy and salafist up north, chose the way of the biblical Judas by giving moral and tacit approval to this mayhem unleashed upon our people.

We remembered and mourned our dead, our grief knew no bounds, we recognized and consoled ourselves on the fact that they died for a just and worthy cause. We will always remember their dedication and commitment to our collective aspirations for a sovereign state of Biafra, where everyone is equal in the eyes of the law; irrespective of class, race or religion. We seek to build a nation where we shall all be proud of, with a sense of belonging, prosperous and egalitarian society where all shall display their passion and patriotism.

Each time the monsters came calling, the tendency is that they will kill, steal and destroy; leaving us psychologically wounded as we count our losses. The question on the lips of Biafrans is: how long are we going to fold our hands and condone this heartless, inhumane and malicious destruction and trauma visited upon our young and vibrant men and women in the name of one military operation or another.

It’s no longer news that one year on, no one have been held accountable for these heinous crimes against humanity unleashed on our people in this 21st century because there were no justice for the dead and the wounded, we are left in perpetual grief and unending agony. In Nigeria, impunity and lawlessness is a state religion, a norm rather than an exception. Nigerian security forces brutalize, torture and kill on every slightest opportunity, knowing that there are no checks and balances in the system, that would have served as deterrent to official impunity and lawlessness.

14th September 2018, was a day we all sat at home, licked our wounds, counted our losses and prayed that the world should take serious note of the aggressors and the victims, in our case with the Islamic soldiers in Nigeria. We insist and make bold to say that freedom of association and our rights as indigenous people to self-determination cannot be quenched through the barrel of guns nor any form of bullying, intimidation, torture, brutality, illegal arrests, detentions without trial and/or murder. As long as we are in tandem with local and international laws concerning self-determination, our struggles must continue without bulging, until Biafra is restored.

As the monsters appear, brandishing their newly-acquired weapons of mass destruction on armless and defenseless citizens, in civilian neighbourhoods and not on war frontlines, our people are being murdered in cold blood, the immediate aftermath, the family, friends and the entire IPOB family will mourn their loved ones. While we pray and hope that common sense will prevail on the part of the Nigerian government to urgently do the needful and heed the call by Biafrans for a referendum to resolve this present impasse and stop further bloodletting.

To our dead comrades and colleagues, I say may the good Lord grant you eternal rest. To the bereaved families and friends, I pray for the fortitude to bear your irreparable losses.

Our promise to hold the banner and consistently raise the flag of freedom and liberty, in memory of our fallen heroes and heroines until Biafra is restored is unshakable and unquenchable.
