Nwoko’s Demise; Nigeria Now IPOB's Arrow of Justice

May 4, 2019

By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Biafra Writers

An allegation devoid of evidence is but a deliberate character assassination. This is common in the Nigerian state. Folks throw up accusations at will and the judiciary seems blind to the implications.

Since its birth, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has received barrages of attack from the Nigerian government aimed at damaging its reputation. The Nigerian side has employed all media arsenal at their disposal to paint IPOB black. In their desperation to achieve their aim, they inadvertently have turned out to be the arrow of justice for the persecuted IPOB.

Recently, the Nigerian media, populated and controlled by the Yoruba, saturated the enclave with the news of Prophet Anthony Nwoko’s demise, propelling the allegation that IPOB is responsible for his death. This accusation and many of its kind are devoid of evidence and those that are propagating it know it, yet, compromised and regrettably unprofessional, they chose to do the government’s bidding.

The late Prophet Anthony Nwoko played into devil’s hand when he made himself a willing tool in the hand of Nigerian government. The old man, not understanding the world we live in, jumped at the opportunity of making easy money from the Nigerian state by attacking the Supreme Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Desperate to bring Kanu down by any possible means, the Nigerian government has been recruiting folks who assiduously work to tarnish Kanu’s image. Nwoko, having gained media publicity for his tirades against Kanu, became ripe for sacrifice in the eyes of Nigerian government. If he died he would generate more controversy around IPOB and possibly incriminate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. State agents then moved in and silenced the old man.

Loss of life is regrettable, especially when it is occasioned by man. One will not fail to note, however, that the arrow that struck Prophet Nwoko, in many ways, is an arrow of justice. For offering to liberate Biafrans from slavery, IPOB and its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, have suffered unimaginable persecutions in the hand of Nigerian government. To help the government to forestall the group’s efforts is to engender further oppression on the people. That is what Nwoko and his like do … knowingly or unknowingly. The arrow of justice, or karma as some people would prefer to call it, would always locate those that help the enemy in subjugating their people.

It should be recalled that after Prophet Nwoko was repatriated from the US, it was Mazi Nnamdi Kanu that rescued him from the streets of Ajegunle in Lagos and took him to Enugu where he rented an apartment for him and attended to his life’s needs. Sadly, the prophet turned against Kanu when the money he requested to run a ministry in the mould of Rev. Father Mbaka’s wasn’t forthcoming.
