Chief Victor Umeh

It is laughable and shameful too that a supposedly intelligence agency like the Nigeria's Department of State Security Service(DSS) without any shrewd of evidence could allow itself to be dragged into shame, mockery and disrepute by listening and adhering to the baseless and unfounded allegations by the malignant opponents and political enemies/rivals of Chief Victor Umeh; an APGA chieftain and the party's Senatorial candidate for the postponed Anambra Central Senatorial race, in sponsoring the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) and the Movement for the Actualization for the Sovereign State of Biafra(MASSOB), following his arrest on Thursday at his Enugu residence and his subsequent flown to their quarters in Abuja.

Clearly the source of this falsehood that tipped the DSS to invite Umeh at their base at Amawbia for questioning before his subsequent arrest is not far-fetched as it was widely speculated and known that this is the handiwork of his political detractors given that Umeh is a very strong candidate in the Senatorial race and as such could be a victim of political scandal and connivance.
It is also a clear fact that Hon. Mrs Uche Ekwunife another senatorial contender and her cronies in the APC could have masterminded this using the influence of the APC-led Federal Government in a desperate bid to bring Umeh down from the senatorial race and his political ambitions.
Now, to set the records straight again, IPOB as a global freedom fighting outfit is being sponsored by Biafrans across broad earnestly yearning for their freedom and an independent state and has not and will never condescend so low as to solicit for funds or anything for that matter from the crops of ill-mannered Nigerian politicians who had made conditions unbearable for them through their bad and visionless leadership. Secondly, it was widely reported in 2012 that the same Victor Umeh sent a petition to INEC against Chekwas Okorie for attempting to revive Biafra by using the 'rising sun' symbol as a logo for his newly formed party then.

Following these known facts, it would be foolhardy for anyone, talk more of a supposedly intelligence security agency to ever think or imagine that Chief Victor Umeh or any Nigerian Politicians at that is sponsoring the Biafran project through IPOB or MASSOB, as clearly it receives their support and sponsorship from Biafrans all over the world who are eager to restore and regain their deprived nation and freedom.
This singular action by the DSS has overtly exposed them to their woes, inability and ineptitude in hunting down and arresting Boko Haram Insurgency group sponsors walking freely all over the country but are quick to hunt down and harass anyone from the East perceived as having reasonable links with IPOB/MASSOB.
If they like, they should also arrest any politician from the old Eastern region who speaks in favour of or sympathizes with the plight of Biafrans as they will be in for another wild goose chase which will culminate in futility as they had abandoned issues that mattered to go after trivialities.
