|Nnamdi Kanu The Leader Of The Indigenous People of Biafra|
PSEUDO LEADER: He who leads while no one is following him is only taking a walk, he is called a self-acclaimed leader, an enemy of the people and a traitor.
BIAFRAN REPUBLICAN NATURE: From time immemorial, dating around 3000 BC and beyond, the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) have been known for their democratic way of life, which is embedded in their DNA, from time to time in their history, they have always chosen their leaders when the need arises.
The Biafran people chooses their leaders not through western methods of staged-managed voting exercises or accepting imposition of warrant chiefs but they choose their leaders by recognizing his voice, identifying with him, following him as he walks, responding to his call and accepting his scepter of leadership (the offor) without any coercion by leader. A replica of this people's unanimous endorsement and acceptance of their true leader can be seen in the leadership of Eze Nri Obalike and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Just like Mazi Kanu the enigmatic and charismatic leader, the influence of Eze Nri Obalike who led the Indigenous People Of Biafra IPOB between 1889-1936 covered the entire Biafran territory, stretching across Enugu to the North, Annang to the South, Eket to the East and warri to the West. The people loved Eze Nri Obalike, they followed his instructions, responded to his calls and accepted his scepter of leadership (the offor) without any coercion from Eze Nri.
During and After the time of Eze Nri Obalike, the British made several attempts to destroy the republican nature of the Biafran People, they made numerous attempts to destroy the Biafran governing institution, when this failed, the British shamelessly resorted to using those rejected in the Biafran society to achieve this evil objective, those rejected persons included the Osu (outcast) and the ostracized ones - those who committed atrocities against the land and whose descendants will include one Mr Dozie Ikedife and his cohorts.

The British government made several attempts to foist on the Biafran people those that were rejected, the progenitors of Mr Dozie Ikedife and his cohorts, those who committed abominable acts, as their pseudo chiefs, warrant kings and fake leaders, but this was however vehemently rejected by the Biafran People, and hence the insistence of the British to rule over Biafra with these Osu was instrumental to Biafra’s fight for freedom executed by general Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
The Indigenous People Of Biafra have continued to remain strong and resolute till date, having survived a genocidal war, they still have their republican way of life intact, they still choose their leader through their historically republican way. In recent years, the new generation of Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) have openly and publicly, before the watching eyes of the entire world demonstrated their historical republican way of choosing their true leader.
They have done so by recognizing the voice of their leader as they handed over to him, a scepter of leadership on the 30th of may 2014 in Enugu, thereby identifying with him and following his foot steps. They have also reaffirmed their declaration through massive protests which stretched across the world, involving millions of Biafrans having placards with the inscriptions, "Nnamdi Kanu, the one and only true leader of the indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

But just as a snake will always reproduce a snake, the descendants of those who were rejected by our land, the Osu will always rear their ugly head, posing and parading themselves as the leader of IPOB, even when it is clear to them and to the world that no IPOB person is following them as they (Ikedife and co) are merely taking a walk. But whether or not they approve of Nnamdi Kanu is irrelevant, what matters most is that we the Indigenous People of Biafra has chosen him as our leader, to abide by his instructions and command.
It should be noted that millions of IPOB world wide have through a massive media campaign and others, proved to the world their total rejection of Mr Dozie Ikedife and his cohorts as their leader just like their progenitors was rejected by our people during their days. The only true leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), is Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and anyone parading himself as the leader of IPOB is simply a mischief maker and an enemy of the people.
