Biafra: General Town Hall Meeting of IPOB Cross River State



June 22, 2019

By Onoja Christian Obinna, Nelson Bond Reporting for IPOB-CRS Calabar Media

Calabar - The just-concluded Cross River State town hall meeting held on 16th June 2019 in the ancient city of Calabar in Biafra-land recorded a huge success with the tremendous turnout from all senatorial zones of the state. The town hall meeting was graced by the national coordinator, the state coordinator, state principal officers, and zonal and unit coordinators.

The town hall meeting was organized with a view to getting clarification on the state’s status as regards IPOB activities. It was also used to lay proper structures of IPOB in the state for the restoration of Biafra.

The National Coordinator charged the house to be in peace and remain focused in the Biafra struggle. He informed the house that Biafra restoration is at hand. He also encouraged the Cross River family to remain resolute, adding that Cross River remains an essential part of Biafra land.

He recalled that the now Presbyterian Church of Nigeria in Calabar had its original name as Presbytery of Biafra when it first arrived at the shores of the old eastern region in 1846. The Presbyterian Church of Biafra became the Presbyterian Church in East Nigeria in 1952. On 16 June 1960, it became the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria. He narrated the above to clear the doubt of many who claim that Calabar has never been part of Biafra.

Furthermore, the National Coordinator referenced Margaret Ekpo who although was of Igbo ethnicity, was born and raised in the creek town of Calabar, having an Efik heritage and later married an Ibibio man. Margaret, the National Coordinator detailed, played a vital role in assuring that women become integral part of politics in the first republic. He outlined the culture and traditions the Igbo speaking part of Biafra share with the Cross Riverians, ranging from the foods we eat to the famous Ekpo masquerade.

The Supreme Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, addressed the family through a Whatsapp call. In his speech, Kanu highlighted why Cross River is an integral part of Biafra-land, stressing that he wants indigenes of the state to be at the helm of affairs of IPOB in the state while our brothers and sisters from other parts of Biafra-land would give them support.

He also emphasized that the people of Cross River state should debunk the propaganda of the Igbo being in total control of the leadership of Biafra when it is restored. He gave vivid analysis of the type of government that Biafra nation would run to maintain equity, justice and freedom to the entire citizens of Biafra-land, stressing that Biafra-land would operate a confederation system of government where resources would be controlled by the indigenous people. He urged the people of Cross River to remain fearless, resolute and formidable, announcing to the house that arrangements have been made to install Radio Biafra transmitter before the end of July, 2019.

The Supreme Leader of Biafra noted that it would be a great joy to see Cross River as formidable as Akwa Ibom, urging the people to organize a full rally in the ancient city of Calabar with the indigenous people of Cross River state taking the greater participation in the rally. He as well urged the people of Cross River state to shun every atom of fear in standing up to reclaim what belongs to them which the enemy has stolen and are now using same to subjugate them. Kanu went on to assure the people that no atom of arrest and detention will deter us from restoring Biafra as anyone arrested for the sake of Biafra must surely come out unharmed.

In his closing remark, the Supreme Leader of Biafra charged the family to remain steadfast, adding that the restoration of Biafra is at hand. He also prayed that Chukwu Okike Abiama continue to guide, bless and protect us all from the hands of our enemies until Biafra is fully restored.

The meeting came to a close after the National Coordinator made some appointments of new principal officers to aid in piloting the affairs of IPOB family in the State.

Long live IPOB Family Cross River State!
Long live IPOB Family World Wide!
Long live our Supreme Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu!

Miyetti Allah Vigilante: We are waiting for Miyetti Allah with open arms - Nnamdi Kanu spit fire





















PRESS STATEMENT FROM THE OFFICE OF THE LEADER OF THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA, MAZI NNAMDI KANU

June 21, 2019

I condemn in totality, both in letter and spirit the underhand agreement between South East Governors and Fulani terrorists that led to the idiotic call by Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN), the fouth most deadly terror group in the world, for the establishment of Fulani terrorist vigilante groups in Igboland Biafra.

Without much ado, I wish to state as follows:

1. That it is extremely shocking and shameful that, at a time when Fulani cattle herders have turned to terrorists and ravaging the North, Middle Belt and Yorubaland, Southeast Governors allowed Miyetti Allah to get away with such criminal demand on our soil. It’s akin to telling someone in advance that you are coming to rob his house and he allowed you to just walk away, while pleading with you that you should reconsider. Instead of ordering their immediate arrest on the spot for daring to so brazenly reveal their criminal intention to invade Igboland, the spineless cowards that pass for SouthEast Governors appear to want to accommodate their demands. No doubt as payback for being rigged back into power by Abba Kyari led Fulani Cabal that run the government of Nigeria in the name of a dead Buhari.

2.. Miyetti Allah a mere cattle trading association, that later turned into a militant terrorist organisation is now openly threatening to conquer Igboland with the help of Igbo governors. It defies logic that Southeast Governors would care to give audience in the open in Igboland to an organisation that has been rated the fourth deadliest terrorist organisation in the world. Did the Southeast Governors stop to consider that Biafran traders in the far North, even though law abiding, can never be given the audience and reverence that these Southeast governors have so shamefully extended to Miyetti Allah.

3... Considering the weak and rambling response of Governor Dave Umahi to this criminal demand, we are certain these Southeast Governors have already granted this request; and in the unlikely event they have not, it’s highly probable that they will, albeit secretly. In such event, I hereby warn Miyetti Allah, Southeast Governors and their collaborators in the Southeast and elsewhere in Nigeria that IPOB will not tolerate the establishment of any Fulani militia, masquerading as vigilantes, in Southeast or anywhere else in Biafraland.

4.... We recall that it is the stated intention of IPOB to set up vigilante services, otherwise known as Biafran Security Services (BSS) that was used as the immediate excuse by the same Southeast Governors to proscribe IPOB, whereupon they proceeded to invite the Government of Nigeria to declare IPOB a terrorist organisation, all of which culminated in the Python Dance that claimed scores of innocent Biafran lives.

We are eagerly waiting for Miyetti Allah and their Fulani terror militia in Biafraland, an adventure they will regret for as long as they live. Their ancestors tried the same nonsense 300 years ago and returned to Zaria in humiliation, so will this Fulani army of darkness fail in 2019. Fulani caliphate must know that IPOB will not allow any of piece of Biafran territory to become another Illorin. We are waiting for Miyetti Allah with open arms.

Signed:

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu
Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra

IPOB Trial: Presiding judge breaks down, not stable health wise; adjourns case till October 31



• As IPOB lawyer faults prosecution for setback in the trial

June 18, 2019

By Chikwas Onu Ikpe
For Biafra Writers

In the ongoing trial of the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, and his co-defendants, the trial Justice Binta Nyako (Mrs) of the Federal High Court Abuja delayed hearing till October 31, 2019, following her inability to preside the case and/or indisposed health status.

Owing to the information made available at the court, the judge stressed on her ailing (sick) condition as being an impediment towards today's proceedings.

Recall that on the last adjourned date, the court had slated today (Tuesday) to progress the suit filed against the IPOB's leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in his absence; and severally, the other four other defendants.

Nevertheless, the lead counsel to the defendants, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, reacting to the development, confirmed the sickly condition of the judge, saying that she is obviously, seriously ‘down,’ and indisposed; and could not entertain any matter on her desk.

Reacting to the advancement of the case, Ejiofor said that his clients are always ready, but the prosecution.

According to him, “The federal government of Nigeria is not ready to prosecute this matter because there is nothing before the court in the first place. They cannot prosecute the case in a vacuum.

“As fundamental as our application is, urging the court to vacate the bench warrant issued against our client, the state would have countered it if they had any matter to present, but they did not file any counter affidavit to that effect. That will show you they are not serious.

“We have promptly addressed the court via applications, with furnished facts lying on documents that are very overwhelming, convincing the court to vacate that (bench warrant) order because we are talking about what led to the inability of our client [Nnamdi Kanu] to present himself in court for trial. The fact is in public domain, and the world is aware.

“We have supplied the court with shreds of evidence of what transpired in his house on September 14, 2017, how his house was invaded by the military, and also how he was able to get to where he is today.”

Also, the defence counsel shedded light on the application seeking the adoption of written addresses bothering the ‘trial within trial’ of the other (quartet) defendants.

“Most importantly,” Ejiofor pointed out a pending application challenging the qualification of the charges, outrightly. Same, he said, “is overripe for hearing.” He, therefore, insisted that on the next adjourned date, the court shall foremost hear the pending application prior to the suit.

Biafrans across the west coast of the U.S.A solidly behind Kanu, support Biafra restoration



The Biafra Times | June 18, 2019

IPOB PRESS RELEASE

As our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his team continue the tour of USA and Canada with emphasis on diplomatic overtures and rallying the Biafran base to restore  Biafra within the shortest possible time, we the worldwide family of the Indigenous People of Biafra commend the family California for the rousing welcome and support given to our indomitable leader during the town-hall meeting held on the 15th of June in Los Angeles.

Biafrans across the USA and Canada have been re-energised with the message of hope and restoration which has not only captivated Biafran audiences who are fortunate enough to attend these events, but has permeated the subconscious of every black African who has come into contact with this message of redemption as evidenced by the high number of goodwill messages received by our leader from non Biafrans.

Biafrans across the west coast of the USA have publicly pledged their moral and material support for Biafra restoration as piloted by IPOB and we promise to do all we can to restore Biafra at the earliest possible opportunity by the grace of Almighty God.

Many more IPOB family meetings, influential individuals and diaspora organisations are queuing up to host our leader in various cities across the United States. The next stop for our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be the city of Houston Texas on the 21st of June 2019, where we expect Biafrans and non-Biafrans alike to gather to welcome and listen to him preach the gospel of the restoration of Biafra at a town-hall meeting.

After Houston Texas, our leader will visit Chicago to meet Biafrans in the State of Illinois. From there he will proceed to New York where he will round up the tour.

Now They Believe the Voice



June 16, 2019

By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Biafra Writers

Critics of Radio Biafra London are now hiding their face in shame as the very entity they demeaned has turned out to be the country’s reference point. The level of compliance recorded in each sit-at-home call leaves so little to question about the potency of the outfit.

They disregarded the truth and its propagator, labeling him a lilliputian, and the channel, a pirate radio. The converts who followed the voice of truth were called jobless. But even at the peak of these attacks, the voice of truth kept calling. This substantiates the established saying that truth is like a smoke which nobody can lock the door against.

This lonely voice in the wilderness – Radio Biafra London – could have saved many lives in the Middle Belt had they given ear to its tuition. Had they listened to this voice, the people wouldn't have been plunged in the economic recession that now leads so many to suicide.

Had the red-capped men from Southeast listened to this voice, they wouldn't have been politically and socially irrelevant today. Had this voice been recognized, Justice Onnoghen wouldn't have been humiliated out of office. Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh disbelieved this angelic voice and met his end untimely. But having met these ugly experiences and seeing the way the cards are playing out, they now believe the voice.

The former minister of defense, T .Y Danjuma, has cried over the menace of Fulani Herdsmen and the leniency of the late President Buhari administration, alleging that the late president was pursuing Islamisation agenda and advised the people to protect themselves. Recently, former President Olusegun Obasanjo openly asserted that the incumbent administration is empowering Boko Haram terrorists. Yet these revelations were made beforehand by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu but were dismissed as hate speeches. Now that these statesmen are lending credence to the lone voice, doesn’t Kanu deserve an apology?

As we speak, Libya is on the verge of being taken over by ISIS. And it’s not just Libya, almost the whole of West Africa is experiencing the same fate. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu tried to awaken the people’s consciousness to this early enough but was neglected.

Well, now is the time to embrace Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his message. Now is the time to apologise to him. Now is the time to make amends.

Biafra: IPOB raise alarm over the barbaric torture of its family members including a 3 years old baby, unlawfully arrested in Akwa Ibom













IPOB PRESS RELEASE || The Biafra Times

14/06/2019


We the global family of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) condemn in it's entirety the continued and barbaric torture of IPOB family members arrested in Akwa Ibom State yesterday 12th of June, 2019. A combined forces of Police, Army and DSS descended on a peaceful gathering and abducted over 122 innocent and unarmed citizens  including a three year old child that committed no crime. Security agencies through this wholly barbaric and undemocratic act have unwittingly highlighted the fact that Akwa Ibom State is part and parcel of the agitation for Biafra independence. Abducting and illegally detaining people is the greatest recruitment weapon for IPOB. So better know their arrest and brutality will never deter us.

Those that sought to pigeon- hole IPOB agitation as an Igbo affair will now understand very clearly that other ethnic nationalities within enclave of Biafra are yearning for freedom too.

We must warn that Ibiobio Biafrans are under server torture at the hands of northern Fulani soldiers and Police garrisoned in Akwa Ibom and every other part of Biafraland to intimidate and humiliate our people.

The abduction of 140 IPOB members in Enugu State last month and this recent 122 in Akwa Ibom State on 12th of June 2019 is an indication that Nigerian  government headed by Fulani Jihadists, aided and abated by sections of the Yoruba political class are in total dilemma over the tenacity and determination we continue to demonstrate in the face of a brutal crackdown.

We understand the Nigerian government is doing this because of the total compliance seen in Akwa Ibom during the sit at home order issued by IPOB high command to remember and honour our fallen heroes and heroines who sacrificed their early precious lives during the serial killings and genocidal war organised and conducted against the people of Biafra from 1966 to 1970.

Our people were abducted in the state of Akwa Ibom because of the unity flowing in our vain among the people in the whole of Biafraland. It is clearly in the public domain that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is moving across the globe like a wide fire unifying and bringing Biafrans all over the world together for the total liberation of our homeland. Therefore, this has recently put Fulani government and cabals in Aso Rock into more panic and confusion.

We are aware that our people were arrested to stop them from strategizing to drive home the demand for Biafra referendum in Akwa Ibom which is targeted to become a reality by the last quarter or end of this year.

We are not cowed by the fact that Fulani military in Biafraland summoned the courage to intimidate and humiliate our fathers, mothers, sisters and youths who came out in support of Biafra freedom. It is on record that Fulani military, Police and DSS cannot intimidate or harass, Alamijri, Fulani Herdsmen or Boko Haram terrorists in the whole of the north.

We are reliably informed that Nigeria Government, Hausa Fulani security operatives in Akwa Ibom State especially police commissioner and his killer squad selected over 70 people from among those abducted illegally yesterday in Akwa Ibom State and transferred them to a secret and unknown place for possible execution with the support of APC government in Abuja and members in the State.

It was also gathered that they have perfected plans to start house to house search against anybody suspected to be sympathizer or IPOB member in Akwa Ibom State. Those selected from the arrested members are undergoing serious and severe torture, at the time of the issuing of this statement.

It is pathetic that Nigeria security forces who cannot afford to stop or curtail Fulani Herdsmen and Boko Haram terrorists who are rampaging and killing people in every part of the country are only strong in abducting IPOB members who come out to demand for referendum. It is the responsibility of the governor of Akwa Ibom State Dr. Emmanuel Udom, members of the state House of Assembly and other stakeholders in the State to do the needful by prevailing upon the Fulani police in Akwa Ibom to release those they abducted including a three year old child without further delay.

IPOB Gives Special Thanks to its Family in Canada Over Kanu's Reception



IPOB PRESS RELEASE | June 12, 2019

The worldwide family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) congratulates IPOB family in Canada for the huge turnout and awesome reception given to our indefatigable leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on 8th and 9th of June 2019 in Toronto. Special thanks goes to those who dedicated their time and energy in making sure that this landmark visit by our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a resoundingly successful one.

We equally thank our Biafran veterans and various Igbo groups in Canada for the respect, honour, and recognition given to our leader during the event. IPOB leadership also commend the enthusiasm, love and regard Biafrans across the board exhibited during the town hall meeting.

Biafrans living in the United States of America and Canada has proven through this visit and townhall meetings that our people are fully determined, united and committed to the pursuit of Biafra independence as undisputedly championed by IPOB.

The reputation of Nigeria has been left in tatters as the world has shown that terrorism tag against IPOB is meaningless foolish. Nigeria has been thoroughly disgraced by IPOB  culminating in the exclusion of Jubril Al-Sudani from the forthcoming US-Africa Summit. Regardless of the intimidation, arrest, killings, and massacre orchestrated and designed to humiliate Biafrans by the Fulani dictators running Nigeria government and her security agencies, we continue to march relentlessly to our preordained destination of Biafra freedom.

Our leader have so far successfully mobilised and united Biafrans living in North America under one common purpose. He will continue to hold town hall meetings and private consultations in the coming weeks. His next stop is the city of Los Angeles California and from there to Houston Texas then Chicago and finally New York where he will be rounding up this historic tour of North America.

We are urging Biafrans both home and in the diaspora to continue to provide strong support and security for our leader during these times.

IPOB High Command and Directorate of State (DOS) are working tirelessly hard and will leave no stone unturned in our agitation for the total liberation of Biafra and other oppressed peoples in Nigeria.
