Biafra: VOBS in a Conference at Enugwu



March 24, 2019

Okoafor Odinaka | For Biafra Times

The Voice of Biafran Students (VOBS) today, March 24, 2019, held a general meeting in Enugwu to discuss the way forward in the Biafra restoration project, attention centering on carrying every Biafran student along.

Before the conference commenced properly, the students chatted heartily and discussed the history of Biafra. Some shared the accounts handed down by their forefathers, others analyzed the white man's agenda against Biafra.

The event drew dignitaries both from IPOB families in Enugu and other parts of Biafra land. The obviously ecstatic dignitaries gave the students words of encouragement, suggesting ways of getting a larger population of students to join IPOB in the freedom quest.

In his address, the VOBS coordinator briefed members present on possible ways of carrying out campus sensitization without fear of any eventuality. The coordinator of the Enugu state chapter also made inputs. Other issues were tabled, discussed and finalized to the joy of all present.

Entertainments followed thereafter, and subsequently, the students were engaged in radio interactions as they took turns airing their views through phone calls on a Radio Biafra programme anchored by Mazi George Onyibe. In the end, the name of Chukwu Okike Abiama was blessed and the gathering dismissed.

One Nigeria: The marriage is over, a new revolution has come!


By Okoafor Odinaka | The Biafra Times 

March 22, 2019

Let me begin with the fact that will not cause confusion or division, but to motivate us to conquer the world, not to create fears due to the evil powers that has been in existence. Fear has been an instrument of destruction for some of our people since the time of history and ever since we have been going round and about seeking solution from the Almighty.

But before I go into this very discourse, I want us to examine the many countries of fanatic jihadists that has deployed their arsenals against the people of Biafra. I want to state the fact that some people simply doesn't understand how things are being set up; they are just wondering about, pretending as if all is well until they are lowered down to their graves. They seem not to understand where things have gone wrong.

Now, we ought to be ready in order to rise and tackle our common challenges for the future is at hand, and it begins with what we have in our hands today. Fighting for a sustainable development to regulate the system of our future generations through the actualization of Biafra.

When the Portuguese and Spain were in our land, so many Biafrans were kidnapped, there was an exportation of our people and other resources to unknown destination. So many did not make it as they died of starvation, hunger, malnutrition, and inhumane treatment by the slave traders while some died as a result of suffering from different illnesses.

Back to Africa where the whole thing began, Britain were buying slaves from the Portuguese. When the Portuguese left Biafra to South Africa, Britain fully stepped in, and the game plan changed as it were. More than 20 thousand Biafran slaves were taken to America every year. The total Biafran slaves that were taken to America, Britain, Spain and other European countries are more than a million, and over 800,000 of them are from the Igbo-speaking region.

The level of increase in the violation of human rights was indescribable, Biafrans cried to the churches to help in stopping the slave trade era, but the slave merchants paid deaf ears to the human rights observers in the church. Britain introduced and foisted new rules on our people which is why they abandoned their local culture and religion. They destroyed our unity, provided guns to our people to fight against themselves. Kingdom rose against Kingdom and brother against brother.

We are the descendants of Abraham, we are the Israelites, that is why we are peculiar to other people only if we realize who we are; and don't let the hardship to blindfold your intellectual ability or your sense of reasoning.

We contributed in the revolution of science and technology; the most intelligent people of Africa are Biafrans. We were republican in nature before the Whites stole the ideas from us. We are scattered across the 7 continents of the world due to the severe consequences of the brutality of Britain against our people. But where light doesn't exist, we bring light to that area because we have the intellectual capability to apprehend, and render help to people in distress in different parts of the world.

Amalgamation of the people of Biafra with other irreconcilable tribes in Nigeria, warranted the heavy immigration of Biafrans from their homeland to foreign lands in search of a suitable and sustainable standard of living.

In Biafra land, there is no constant distribution of power supply, no good functioning automobile road, there are moribund seaports and airports, no potable water supply, no good hospitals, schools, there's no employment. The citizens are harrased, molested and killed extrajudicially by the police and army personnel. The government clamp down on dissenting voices and the opposition using state security personnel.

The Nigerian government through its harsh policies contributed to the decay and dilapidated infrastructural projects in Biafraland such as oil refineries, Nkalagu cement industries, Aba textile industry, Premier Breweries, AVOP, and other similar infrastructures which has now gone moribund to patronize that of other regions providing an opportunity for other nationals to exploit our people economically, including Hausa/Fulanis.

The enormous corruption in politics has made it impossible for the process to be properly regulated. Elections are rigged and leaders are selected by the few cabals. The people are being ruled by the cabals who are there for own benefit and that of their cronies.

If we don't rise up to correct all these anomalies by joining hands to restore Biafra, then it may be too late when we realize the extent of damage it has brought to our people. Nigeria's amalgamation is over and a new era revolution for the Biafra nation is here.

Bus full of children set on fire by angry driver



World News | The Biafra Times

March 20, 2019

Italian bus driver of Senegalese descent was arrested on Wednesday after hijacking his own vehicle and setting it on fire, allegedly threatening to kill more than 50 children on board whose hands he had bound.

The 47-year-old man said he was acting in revenge for the thousands of migrants, many of them African, who have drowned in the Mediterranean in recent years while trying to reach Europe from Libya.

“No one will survive,” he said, according to police.

“He shouted 'Stop the deaths at sea, I'll carry out a massacre',” said Marco Palmieri, a police spokesman.

The man, named as Ousseynou Sy, was driving 51 children from their middle school near the city of Cremona to a sporting event when he started making threats, brandishing a knife.

In an ordeal that lasted around 40 minutes, he started driving towards nearby Milan.

He rammed the bus into cars on a busy highway before it came to a stop at a roadblock set up by police.

He then doused it in petrol and set it on fire.

Police smashed the windows of the vehicle to allow the children to escape.

Television footage showed thick black smoke and flames billowing from the bus, which was reduced to a burnt-out hulk.

“It was a miracle, it could have been a massacre,” said Francesco Greco, a prosecutor from Milan. “The carabinieri (police) were exceptional in blocking the bus and getting all the children out. They broke the windows and managed to get all 51 kids out.”

One of the children told reporters that the driver had threatened to pour petrol on them and set them alight.

“He handcuffed us and threatened us. He said that if we moved he would pour out the petrol and set fire to it.

“He kept saying that people in Africa are dying and the fault is Di Maio and Salvini's” – a reference to Luigi Di Maio and Matteo Salvini, the leaders of the two parties that make up the populist coalition.

A 12-year-old boy who was interviewed by Italian television said the driver claimed that three of his children had drowned at sea while trying to reach Italy by boat from North Africa.

“He said he had lost three children, that many children die at sea, so we should die too, by being burned. I was afraid I would die,” the boy said.

Mobile phone footage taken by passing motorists showed children screaming in panic as they ran away from the vehicle.

At least 12 children were taken to hospital for bruises, smoke inhalation or because they were suffering from shock.

Police said the suspect had a criminal record, with convictions for sexual molestation and driving while drunk. He obtained Italian citizenship in 2004.

Mr Salvini, the interior minister and head of the anti-immigration League party, asked why a person with a criminal record was allowed to drive a school bus.

Interior minister officials said they were studying the possibility of revoking the driver’s Italian citizenship.

The driver is likely to face charges of kidnapping, attempted mass murder, causing a fire and resisting arrest.

Prosecutors said he could also be charged with terrorism offences.

Thousands of migrants, many of them West Africans, have drowned in the Mediterranean in recent years.

So far this year, the death toll is 282, but that comes after a dramatic reduction in the number of migrant boats setting out from Libya.

The traffic has slowed considerably after the EU beefed up the Libyan Coast Guard – which has been accused of human rights abuses – and Italy’s populist government decreed last summer that it was closing its ports to NGO vessels that rescue asylum seekers.

Last year, nearly 2,300 migrants and refugees died, according to the UN.

Nigeria: America condemns Nigerian Government, says it uses state agents for unlawful killings















March 18, 2019 || The Biafra Times


The United States has accused the Federal Government of Nigeria and it agents of committing “arbitrary and unlawful killings.”

US made this known in a recent report titled, “2018 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices” available on the Department of State website.

The report, which took a look at Nigeria’s human rights record alleged that the government had breached some human rights laws.

“Human rights issues included unlawful and arbitrary killings by both government and nonstate actors; forced disappearances by both government and nonstate actors; torture by both government and nonstate actors and prolonged arbitrary detention in life-threatening conditions particularly in government detention facilities; harsh and life-threatening prison conditions including civilian detentions in military facilities, often based on flimsy or no evidence; infringement on citizens’ privacy rights; criminal libel; substantial interference with the rights of peaceful assembly and freedom of association.

“There were several reports the government or its agents committed arbitrary and unlawful killings. The national police, army, and other security services used lethal and excessive force to disperse protesters and apprehend criminals and suspects and committed other extrajudicial killings. Authorities generally did not hold police, military, or other security force personnel accountable for the use of excessive or deadly force or for the deaths of persons in custody. State and federal panels of inquiry investigating suspicious deaths generally did not make their findings public.

“In August 2017 the acting president convened a civilian-led presidential investigative panel to review compliance of the armed forces with human rights obligations and rules of engagement, and the panel submitted its findings in February. As of November, no portions of the report had been made public.”

The report, however, added that the government took steps to “Investigate alleged abuses but fewer steps to prosecute officials who committed violations, whether in the security forces or elsewhere in the government. Impunity remained widespread at all levels of government. The government did not adequately investigate or prosecute most of the major outstanding allegations of human rights violations by the security forces or the majority of cases of police or military extortion or other abuse of power.”

Nigeria 2019 Election: a Soft Military Coup by the Cabal



March 17, 2019

By Johnson Chukwudifu | For Biafra Writers

This article would have been aptly titled, “The Success of Buhari’s Second Military Coup,” but then, Buhari is dead. The fellow currently paraded as Nigeria's number one citizen is a body-double from Sudan named Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani.

It has now dawned on Nigerians that the so-called 2019 election was, in reality, a military coup orchestrated by Fulani hegemony. The Fulani are historically a people with innate desire to colonize and subjugate all the indigenous people inhabiting the geographical expression referred to as Nigeria. The realities of the recent sham dubbed election speak volumes of the Fulani ill desires. With the just concluded election, the Fulani have succeeded in birthing a political turf that allows them exclusive grip on Nigeria's power frame.

Today, the country is as quiet as a graveyard following the outcome of the elections and the haunting realizations it bestowed on the citizenry. Of course, Nigerians are not new to disorderliness and election thuggery, but the sight of soldiers - equipped as if in war - marching the streets abducting, harassing, and killing opposition candidates and supporters shattered any hope left in getting Nigeria to work.

In the cities, the ruling APC considered stronghold of the opposition, armored cars, and other military hardware were deployed, duly backed up in the air by the airforce. The helpless masses witnessed the military break into INEC collation centers, scare the people away and force electoral officers to announce doctored results.

With over sixty lives driven to their early grave by the military in a concerted effort to rig the current APC government back to power, uneasy calm has settled over the country.

The Fulani is found pushing on his normadic lifestyle in several other West African countries as well as Central Africa. In these other parts of Africa, the Fulani exist as minority. In Nigeria however, although still in minority, the Fulani lives as lords. Othman Danfodio having successfully conned the indigenous Hausa settlers into helping him conquer the established Hausa thrones had gone on to establish his own dynasty, a historical fact that authored the boastful and provocative terse of the Fulani, "we are born to rule." Having set their feet fully and permanently in the North, they filed out from there to conquer the rest of the geographical area today referred to as Nigeria.

The despicable activities of the military in the recent elections as dictated by the ruling APC government were to forestall the emergence of another government which might be open to restructuring of the Nigerian political construct.

2019 Elections: The Disappointment of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf



March 14, 2019

By Johnson Mgbadu | For Biafra Writers

Severally in the past (during the slave-trade era), Africa was raped by powers outside powers with the full cooperation of some selfish, conniving Africans.

In later years, those Africans were replaced by another set of African connivers, such selfish politicians with semi-literate soldiers like a certain Umaru Dikko and Muhammadu Buhari. Others include the likes of Yakubu Gowon, Sani Abacha, Olusegun Obasanjo, Theophilus Danjuma, Ahmadu Bello, and Babagana Kingibe. They connived with outside powers, receiving assistance such as arms and ammunition from them, and using same to devastate the people they swore to protect just to remain in the saddle of leadership; even when they obviously lack the capacity to function as leaders.

Painfully, that rape has continued till this present day in different forms and different guises, and yet with new set of connivers, some even complementing those mentioned above.

As a result of this situation, many people had felt that redemption would come when highly-educated individuals grow to take over the position of power and authority. The thinking was that such individuals would be highly informed, and would, therefore, understand the plight of Africa in view of the intricacies of international power-play, and so would be able to act right.  In addition to that belief, many in some quarters believed that when women, especially those with high education, occupy important positions in government and in the society, that things would improve tremendously.

This was a major reason great joy swept over many people in the West African sub-region when Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, became the President of Liberia. She was seen as highly educated woman – being a Professor.

Incidentally, when she concluded her two-term tenure as president and left, many people did not bother to appraise her stint as a leader in Liberia. It was assumed she had done well despite series of protests over some missing funds under her watch.

In the same manner, when she became a member of the ECOWAS observer committee at the just concluded general elections in Nigeria, little eyebrows were raised. It was believed she was educated and sophisticated and would not dance with the shenanigans of desperate people in government over the election.

Oh! How wrong the people were. Indeed, they believed in vain, for her report on that Presidential election of February 23, gave nobody joy. The old woman (born in October 29, 1938) has proven to be even far worse than the ill-educated military men people hoped they would help to retire into political ignominy. She joined observers from outside the continent to claim that the election was free and fair when irrefutable records of violence, enforced disenfranchisement of eligible voters in Rivers, Lagos and other states, vote-buying, stuffing and snatching of ballot boxes and destruction of ballot papers, including killings and abduction of electoral officers and voters. How careless can she be?

Does it mean she was never deployed in Nigeria to witness the carnage and election violence perpetrated by the desperate politicians in power? Didn’t she witness the unleashing of rampaging soldiers on the populace in a supposedly democratic election? Does she not know that Buhari was dead, and that the man standing for the election as Buhari was an impostor – Jubril from Sudan?

Was Mrs. Sirleaf not aware that more than 50 Nigerians were killed by the police and military men across the country in their bid to scare voters away from the polling booths so that the party in power, the APC would continue with its rigging plans unchallenged? Is she also not aware that Card-readers did not function properly in some polling units which led to the disenfranchisement of many voters? Does she not know that APC paid people to buy their voters’ cards? Does she not know that children(underaged voters) were registered to vote in Northern states were APC had many supporters?

It was a pity how Ellen Johnson Sirleaf disappointed Africans in Nigeria. It was indeed a shame that she declared an election that was adjudged as the worst in strategy and execution in the history of Nigeria, free and fair. Such are the leaders we see in Africa.

Atiku Abubakar, the Current Most Important Actor in the Fulani Secret Agenda



By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu Anyanwoke | For Biafra Writers

March 5, 2019

The banner headline, “Atiku Abubakar goes to court,” comes across as the most comical joke of the year. The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is a man well-versed, astute and with a savoir-faire in political turfs that hardly grovels before any other in Nigeria. With his high standing and understanding of Nigeria's political terrain, it's rather preposterous that he would seek redress for a supposed stolen mandate in a court owned and controlled by the APC government. Even dullards could tell what APC was up to when the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Samuel Onnoghen, was unceremoniously and illegally removed and replaced weeks to the elections. Heading to court, therefore, is a waste of time, energy and resources. It, however, lays bare the intrigues behind the scene and, of course, the important roles Atiku plays for his tribe.

Studying the developments so far, it becomes obvious that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar returned to PDP to shatter any effort to lure power away from the North. Fearing that former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan might stage a comeback, the Fulani Oligarchy used Atiku as a detraction. He was propped up to seize the PDP presidential ticket, thereby holding down the chances of a Southerner wrestling power out from them. Atiku's decision to go to court is, therefore, nothing but a public stunt calculated to pacify his unsuspecting supporters, making them think that he actually meant business.

History reminds us that Atiku Abubakar opposed restructuring in Goodluck Jonathan's dispensation, an act that perfectly aligns with the "no restructuring" stance of the Fulani, exposing, therefore, his total commitment to Fulani agenda. The idea to run his campaign on "restructuring" was predicated on buying the loyalty of the South.

Have Atiku not been role-playing, he would have been positioning himself towards forming a parallel government rather than head to court which he knows, in addition to being more decayed than the electoral system itself, is a tool in the hand of the opponent.
