Biafra: Our Steps are Guided – Kanu Tells Followers




September 20, 2019
By Nelson Ofokar Yagazie | Biafra Writers

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

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

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

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

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

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



September 20, 2019
By Nelson Ofokar Yagazie | Biafra Writers

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

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

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

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

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

DSS Abducted a Breastfeeding Mother in Nnewi



By Ezzy Okorie | Biafra Writers
September 20, 2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu at UN Geneva


September 19, 2019
By Nelson Ofokar Yagazie | Biafra Writers

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

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

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

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

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




The Biafra Times | September 18, 2019

ALIYU GWARZO SAID:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FEMI FANI-KAYODE RESPONDS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

READ ALSO: Biafra: We Shall Prevail

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Can there be peace between the serpent and the lion?

Can there be harmony between the captor and the captive?

Can there be understanding between the oppressor and the oppressed?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Biafra: We Shall Prevail



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Biafrans Commemorate the Victims of 9.11 attacks, condemn all manner of terrorism, including the ones being perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram



September 17, 2019
By Umeh, A. Chiemelie | Biafra Writers

September 11th every year, the government and the good people of the United States of America commemorate and pay tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, which killed over 2,996 people and injured over 6,000. The twin towers of the world trade center and the Pentagon was completely devastated down to its very foundation.

The American national attitude of manifest destiny, hard work and technological innovation made her the most successful and prosperous nation on earth. The libertarian ideals of the founding founders which every generation of Americans uphold, has made their country a nation of different races, tongues, and colours. Immigrants troop in from every continent on earth with their ideals and skills in search of greener pastures. The door of America was opened to them so long as they abide by the American creed and swore allegiance to the constitution. Man worked, God blessed and the land of freedom with the emblem of the statue of liberty became the most powerful, prosperous and dominant nation on the face of the planet.

On this day, Tuesday morning - 11th September 2001, hijackers crashed the planes, American Airlines flight 11 and United Airlines flight 175, into the twin towers of world trade center (the symbol of American economic power) and the American Airlines 77 was crashed into the Pentagon - headquarters of the department of defense (symbol of the American military might). The aim is to cripple the western economy and military superiority and advance radical Islam with the intention to control the world system through the deployment of savagery and fear.

The spread of radical Islam is the aim, the indigenous population and America as the world power, is the prime target. We Biafrans world over, condemn this act of terror and others committed by these men from the underworld. The event of 9.11.2011 led to the declaration of war on terror by the Bush administration. It is the most brutal terrorist attacks against a nation in the history of man and the world has never remained the same since that Tuesday morning.
     
Together, with the civilized world, we the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra worldwide, condemn all manner of terrorism in the world including the ones being perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram in Nigeria in systematic connivance with the Fulani-controlled government of Nigeria, especially in North-East, Middle belt and Southern Nigeria and most notably, the acts of terror being perpetrated in the most gruesome manner against IPOB, whom they have massacred since 2015 till date.
       
Destroying human life is against our values and way of life. We stand with the Americans on this day of National remembrance. We mourn with those who lost their loved ones and pray that God give them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
       
Our heart goes out to the wounded, some of whom till this day, endure the discomfort of brutality of man against his fellow man. We understand their predicaments because we have been on that road before between 1966-1970 even till date. We stand with you on this day. We implore the Americans and the free world to take solace from the words of the psalmist, ‘’though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me’’... for as long as our redeemer liveth, and the world exists, good must continue to triumph over evil.

There is a great need for change in strategy on the global efforts against terrorism. Terrorism has become a worldwide phenomenon with a vast network of groups with the sole agenda of advancing and planting radical Islam in every corner of the world. The alliance against terror needs to be strengthened and reinforced by empowering more friends and allies like the Biafrans who share common values and anti-terror ideals. This can be done through massive support for Biafra towards the attainment of statehood.

If a powerful country like the United States can be attacked, then it spells of the vulnerability that a besieged Biafra suffers. That is why there is need for a concerted effort towards the consolidation of allies, in order to win this global war on terrorism.

If the United States with all her military might and efficient exploits of the CIA can be attacked, then no elite member of the United Nations Security Council is safe.  It is to the best interest of the five (5) permanent members of the U.N.S.C that Biafra emerges as an independent nation. We have a long history with the jihadists that dates back to the 19th century. We have faced their wild-donkey-like aggression and brutality from 1966-1970, therefore, possess the mental will and tenacity to deal a fatal blow to this global terror network and rid the world of this evil.

We recognize the fact that, the five permanent members of the U.N.S.C and the civilized world is making great efforts in dismantling the global terror network. Biafrans are ever ready and it will be a great privilege to stand side by side with your great military forces to end the scourge of terrorism in the world. For if we fail in taking responsibility in Nigeria, the world will not be able to contain the refugees that will be unleashed.

America is the conscience of the world. The responsibility of true leadership is making hard and difficult decisions. It is the duty and obligation of America to protect and defend her core values, principles and ideals of freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness which these terrorists threaten.

What is at stake is freedom in America, Biafraland and the civilized world. For if Biafra is under the threat of the radical Islam and annihilation by the Fulani terrorist militia, then America is not safe. The United States must defend her territory, way of life and the free world through the unalloyed support for the emergence of a free Biafra.

The United States needs to build a formidable alliance with Biafra just as with the state of Israel, because we share so many things in common and are faced by a common enemy for whom the total destruction of the United States and Israel and orchestrating a pogrom in Biafraland is their ultimate goal.
     
We Biafrans are the originators and a long upholder of the republican and democratic ideals which the United States founding fathers institutionalized and is enjoyed by the Americans. We are bound by a common creed and value system. Therefore, we must form a formidable, strong and indomitable alliance to protect and advance these ideals.
         
The emergence of the land of the rising sun (Biafra) will certainly change the narrative on the war against terror to a positive one and collectively stop any semblance of the event of 9/11 around the world.
       
We have to keep faith in the Almighty God that this carnage on U.S soil will never happen again. Bearing in mind the words of Billy Graham, ‘’but now, we have a choice, whether to implode and disintegrate emotionally as a nation or to become stronger.

We must choose to become stronger for the next generation, the indigenous people and the rest of humanity. Radical Islam can never and will never defeat our great people and our great way of life.
