BIAFRA: POLICE PERMIT NOT REQUIRED FOR RALLIES IN NIGERIA...Femi Falana

BIAFRA:
POLICE PERMIT NOT REQUIRED FOR RALLIES IN NIGERIA...Femi Falana
Femi Falana

23rd January 2017
In January 2012, the mass protests against the so-called removal of fuel subsidy were violently disrupted by the police and the army personnel. During its recent industrial action, the Academic Staff Union of Universities had cause to direct its members to embark on protests to draw public attention to the underfunding of public universities in Nigeria. The police dispersed the protesting academics with tear gas. A fortnight ago, a political rally in Port Harcourt, Rivers State was brutally suppressed by the police.

In justifying the violent attack, Mr. Joseph Mbu, the Rivers State Commissioner of Police claimed that the rally was unauthorized as the conveners did not obtain a police permit. Since the disruption of public meetings and rallies is an infringement of the fundamental right of Nigerians to freedom of association, assembly and expression it is pertinent to draw the attention of the authorities to the state of the law on public meetings.

RELATED POST: PRESS RELEASE: THE UNBELIEVABLE DENIAL BY RIVERS STATE POLICE COMMISSIONER, FOLUSO A. ADEBANJO, ON THE POLICE MASSACRE OF BIAFRANS RALLYING AT IGWEOCHA (PORTHARCOURT) IN SUPPORT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP OF USA

Under the Public Order Act (Cap P42) Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 the power to regulate public meetings, processions and rallies in any part of Nigeria was exclusively vested in the governors of the respective states of the Federation. Thus, by virtue of section 1 of the Act, the Commissioner of Police or any other police officer could not issue a license or permit for any meeting or rally without the authority of the governor. In other words, no police officer was competent to issue a permit for holding any public meeting or rally or cancel any such public meeting or rally without the authority of the governor of a state.

In the case of All Nigeria Peoples Party & Ors. v. Inspector General of Police (2006) CHR 181 the Plaintiffs being registered political parties requested the Defendant, the Inspector-General by a letter dated 21st May 2004 to issue Police Permits to their members to hold unity rallies throughout the country to protest the rigging of the 2003 elections. The request was refused. There was a violent disruption of the rally organized in Kano on the 22nd of September 2003 on the ground that no police permit was obtained.

In a suit filed at the Federal High Court against the Inspector-General of Police, the Plaintiffs challenged the constitutional validity of police permit under the Public Order Act and the violent disruption of the rally. In defending the action the Defendant contended that the conveners of the rally did not obtain a police permit.

In dismissing the contention of the Police the trial judge, the Honourable Justice Chinyere stated inter alia:
“The gist of the provision in section 1 of the Act is that the Governor of each State is empowered to direct the conduct of all assemblies, meetings and processions on public roads or places of public resort in the state and prescribe the route by which and times at which the procession may pass. Persons desirous of convening or collecting any assembly or meeting or of forming a procession in any public resort must apply and obtain the license of the Governor.

The Governor can delegate his powers to the Commissioner of Police of the State or to other police officers. Persons aggrieved by the decision of the Commissioner of Police may appeal to the Governor and the decision of the Governor shall be final and no further appeal shall lie therefrom.”

On the inconsistency of police permit with sections 39 and 40 of the Constitution and Article 11 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights Act (Cap A9) Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 the learned trial judge said:
“In my view, the provision in section 40 of the Constitution is clear, direct and unambiguous. It is formulated and designed to confer on every person the right to assemble freely and associate with other persons. 

I am therefore persuaded by the argument of Mr. Falana that by the combined effect of sections 39 and 40 of the 1999 Constitution as well as Article 11 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights, the right to assemble freely cannot be violated without violating the fundamental right to peaceful assembly and association. I agree with Mr. Falana that violation can only be done by the procedure permitted by law, under section 45 of the Constitution, in which case there must be a state of emergency properly declared before theses rights can be violated.

I also agree with Mr. Falana that the criminal law is there to take care if protesters resort to violence in the course of demonstration and that once the rights are exercised peacefully, they cannot be taken away.

The Public Order Act so far as it affects the right of citizens to assemble freely and associate with others, the sum of which is the right to hold rallies or processions or demonstration is an aberration to a democratic society. It is inconsistent with the provisions of the 1999 Constitution. In particular, sections 1(2),(3),(4),(5) and (6), 2, 3 and 4 are inconsistent with the fundamental rights provisions in the 1999 Constitution and to the extent of their inconsistency, they are void. I hereby so declare.”

After declaring the provisions of the Public Order Act which require a police permit for public meetings and rallies illegal and unconstitutional the Federal High Court proceeded to grant the following reliefs:

“1. A DECLARATION that the requirement of police permit or other authority for the holding of rallies or processions in Nigeria is illegal and unconstitutional as it violates section 40 of the 1999 Constitution and Article 11 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act (Cap 10) Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 1990.

2. A DECLARATION that the provisions of the Public Order Act (Cap 382) Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 1990 which require police permit or any other authority for the holding of rallies or processions in any part of Nigeria is illegal and unconstitutional as they contravene section 40 of the 1999 Constitution and Article 7 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act (Cap 10) Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 1990.

3. A DECLARATION that the Defendant is not competent under the Public Order Act (Cap 382) Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 1990 or under any law whatever to issue or grant a permit for the holding of rallies or processions in any part of Nigeria.

4. AN ORDER OF PERPETUAL INJUNCTION restraining the Defendant (the Inspector-General of Police) whether by himself, his agents, privies, and servants from further preventing the Plaintiffs and other aggrieved citizens of Nigeria from organizing or convening peaceful assemblies, meetings, and rallies against unpopular government measures and policies.”

Completely dissatisfied with the judgment of the Federal High Court on the issuance of police permit the Inspector-General of Police appealed to the Court of Appeal. Upon hearing the case the Justices of the Court of Appeal unanimously affirmed the judgment of the Federal High Court.

With respect to the powers of governors to authorize the issuance of permit for holding public meetings and rallies in their states Olufunmilayo Adekeye JCA (as she then was) had this to say:
“On a proper perusal of the provisions particularly section 1 subsection 1-6, and sections 2-4 there is nowhere the name of the Inspector General is mentioned in connection with the issuance of permit for the purpose of conducting peaceful public assemblies. Such application is to be forwarded to the Governor within forty-eight hours of holding such. The Governor may delegate his powers under the Act to the Commissioner of Police of the State or any superior police officer of a rank not below that of a Chief Superintendent of Police as applicable to this case in hand.”

On the fundamental right of Nigerian citizens to assemble freely and protest without a license, or permit Adekeye JCA proceeded to hold as follows:
“The power given to the Governor of a State to issue a permit under Public Order Act cannot be used to attain an unconstitutional result of deprivation or right to freedom of speech and freedom of assembly.

The right to demonstrate and the right to protest on matters of public concern are rights which are in the public interest and that which individuals must possess and which they should exercise without impediment as long as no wrongful act is done…

Public Order Act should be promulgated to compliment sections 39 and 40 of the Constitution in context and not to stifle or cripple it. A rally or placard carrying demonstration has become a form of expression of views on current issues affecting government and the governed in a sovereign state. It is a tread recognized and deeply entrenched in the system of governance in civilized countries – it will not only be primitive but also retrogressive if Nigeria continues to require a pass to hold a rally. We must borrow a leaf from those who have trekked the rugged path of democracy and are now reaping the dividend of their experience.” (See Inspector-General of Police v. All Nigeria Peoples’ Party (2008) WRN 65).

In his contribution to the judgment of the Court of Appeal, Muhammad JCA confirmed that police permit is alien to a democratic society when he reiterated that:
“In present day Nigeria, clearly police permit has outlived its usefulness. Certainly, in a democracy, it is the right of citizens to conduct peaceful processions, rallies or demonstrations without seeking and obtaining permission from anybody. It is a right guaranteed by the 1999 Constitution and any law that attempts to curtail such right is null and void and of no consequence.”

In consigning police permit to the dustbin of history the Court of Appeal relied on the case of New Patriotic Party v. Inspector-General of Police, Accra (1992-1995) GBR 585 where the Supreme Court of Ghana observed that:
“Statutes requiring such permits for peaceful demonstrations, processions and rallies are things of the past. A Police permit is the brainchild of the colonial era and ought not to remain in our statute books.”

In line with the rule of law the current Inspector-General of Police, Mr. M.D. Abubakar has directed all police officers to comply with the verdicts of both the Federal High Court and the Court of Appeal by recognizing the fundamental right of Nigerians to assemble freely and protest without harassment. Hence, in the Nigeria Police Code of Conduct launched at Abuja on January 10, 2013 it is stated that police officers shall “maintain a neutral position with regard to the merits of any labour dispute, political protest, or other public demonstration while acting in an official capacity; not make endorsement of political candidates, while on duty, or in official uniform.”

In view of the aforesaid judicial pronouncements on the fundamental right of Nigeria to protest peacefully without police permit which has been recognized by the Inspector-General of Police as espoused in the Nigeria Police Code of Conduct we urge the Rivers State Commissioner of Police and other Police Commissioners to desist from cancelling or disrupting political meetings and rallies convened by Nigerians in exercise of their freedom of association and assembly. 

Incidentally, the Honourable Justice Adekeye J.S.C. (Rtd) who delivered the historic judgment of the Court of Appeal which confirmed the illegality of police permit is now a member of the Nigeria Police Service Commission. We have no doubt that the respected Justice will rightly advise the Nigeria Police Force to stop the illegal and contemptuous practice of insisting on the issuance of police permit for political meetings and rallies in Nigeria.

Notwithstanding that the provisions of the Public Order Act relating to the issuance of permit for holding public meetings and processions have been struck down the Constitution has empowered governors to issued directives to commissioners of police with respect to public order and security in their respective states. 

This was confirmed by the Supreme Court in the case of Attorney-General of Anambra State v. Attorney-General of the Federation.(2005) 9 NWLR (PT 931) 572 at 616 where Uwais CJN (as he then was) held that:
“The Constitution in section 215 subsection (1) clearly gives the Governor of Anambra State the power to issue a lawful direction to the Commissioner of Police, Anambra State, in connection with securing public safety and order in the State.“

Following the aforesaid judgment of the Federal High Court, the Olusegun Obasanjo Administration ensured that the protests organized by the Nigeria Labour Congress in 2005 against the incessant hike in the prices of petroleum products were not disallowed by the police. In the same vein, the Acting President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan ensured that the rallies convened by the Save Nigeria Group in Lagos and Abuja in 2010 to protest the coup of the cabal that seized power when the Late President Umaru Yaradua was in a state of coma in a foreign hospital were not attacked by the Police. 

READ THIS: BIAFRA: IPOB TRUMP SOLIDARITY RALLY, THE BEGINNING OF GREAT ALLIANCE

Since democracy admits of freedom of expression the holding of dissent, protests, marches, rallies and demonstrations the right of Nigerians to freedom of expression should not be enjoyed on the basis of the whims and caprices of the ruling class.

In the light of the foregoing, it is submitted, without any fear of contradiction that the power to issue a license or permit for holding public meetings, assemblies and processions were never vested in Inspector-General of Police and Police Commissioners but in the State Governors. 

Police permit which is a relic of colonialism has been annulled on the ground of its inconsistency with the provisions of the Constitution and the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights on freedom of assembly, association, and expression. To that extent, the disruption of public meetings and rallies by the police and other security agencies ought to be resisted by Nigerians as it is illegal and contemptuous.

BIAFRA: BUHARI IS A SAVAGE....Bombing Christians In a Refugee Camp

BIAFRA:
BUHARI IS A SAVAGE....Bombing Christians In a Refugee Camp

IDP Camp Before Buhari Bombed it


22nd January 2017

When a religious bigot is in power, especially a Muslim bigot, the Christians in that country is in one all mighty trouble. With the recent attack on Christians in Kaduna and some parts of the country and with president Muhammadu Buhari adamant about it, it is clear that it was a calculated attack aimed at exterminating Christians from the contraption called Nigeria with a presidential ascent.

Muhammadu Buhari the bigot president of the contraption called Nigeria is now in an active campaign of extermination of Christians and Biafrans from their lands. He ordered and sanctioned the shooting of defenseless people of Biafra with live ammunition and paid the media to turn blind eyes to the atrocities that he has been perpetuating thus keeping the world in the dark of the genocide committed against innocent people Biafrans and innocent Christians.

READ THIS: Biafra: " Buhari Is An Unrepentant Killer, There Is Nothing Wrong In Wishing Him Death"--Charles Ogbu

With the recent booming of innocent Christians in IDP camp which left over a hundred IDP inmates as well as UN/RED CROSS DOCTORS killed, Buhari has proven that he is a Vilain whose mission is total eradication of Christians in Nigeria. The claim by the military that the bomb was dropped by accident is unacceptable. How could the refugee camp in any way look like a Boko Haram camp? Is the IDP camp located next to Boko haram camp in Sambisa forest?

There is no way a jet bomber could have mistakenly dropped a bomb in an open place seemingly occupied by Christians, while Sambisa forest is left for Boko Haram to inhabit peacefully . What was the pilot thinking before pressing the bomb release keypad, or is it also a mistake that you press the bomb release keypad, not above Sambisa Forrest, not just on a single building, but on a camp which has a lot of people in it? Clearly, it's an Intentional and coordinated attack.

The reason why Buhari choose to bomb the IDP camp is because it has a lot of Christians inmates in it, and Buhari being a Muslim bigot have no other choice but to bomb them where he believed he will achieve large-scale massacre of innocent Christians.

PRESS RELEASE:THE UNBELIEVABLE DENIAL BY RIVERS STATE POLICE COMMISSIONER, FOLUSO A. ADEBANJO, ON THE POLICE MASSACRE OF BIAFRANS RALLYING AT IGWEOCHA (PORTHARCOURT) IN SUPPORT OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP OF USA

January 22, 2017


Press Release

The world is held aghast at the barefaced lies and unbelievable denial by Mr. Foluso A. Adebanjo, the Rivers State Police Commissioner, concerning the massacre of Biafrans who came out on Friday, January 20th, 2017 to rally in support of Mr. Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. In his denial speech, Mr. Adebanjo could not even differentiate between a protest and a rally, hence his ignorant reference to Biafrans‘ rally as a “protest.“ Given the antecedents of the uncouth and ill-trained Nigerian Policemen and other security agencies, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu published a letter which it sent to the Police Authorities in Rivers State which notified them of the upcoming rally. The Police Authorities, on their part, duly acknowledged receipt of the letter via a communication they sent to the IPOB officials in Rivers State. Also, Jeff Amechi Agbodo of The Sun Newspaper reported on January 19th, 2017 that IPOB has formally notified the Rivers State Police of their intention to hold a rally the next day in support of Donald Trump.

IPOB decided to go through this formal communication channel with the Rivers State Police Command despite the fact that Section-39 and Section-40 of Nigeria’s Constitution gave us the right to assemble. Biafrans from all over Nigeria converged at Igweocha on January 20th, 2017, and the rally started in earnest at 9 am along Aba Road by Rumuola Junction.

We invite everyone to watch this Youtube video showing the peaceful and orderly rally conducted by IPOB: VIDEO: IPOB-TRUMP RALLY IN IGWEOCHA

On getting to the Garrison Junction area of the town, Foluso Adebanjo ordered the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police to open fire at the rallying Biafrans. The SARS was later joined by the soldiers of the Nigerian Army and agents of the Department of State Services (DSS). Twenty Biafrans were shot dead on the spot. Seventy Biafrans were terminally shot at critical and vital organs of their bodies. Much more were hit with the butt of the guns, and many more had deep lacerations inflicted on their bodies as the soldiers used bayonets on them. Mr. Foluso Adebanjo also ordered the arrest of over 100 Biafrans who are still in detention up to this moment.


To hide their crimes, Foluso Adebanjo ordered the SARS squad to evacuate the dead bodies to unknown destinations to destroy any evidence of manslaughter against them. Hence Foluso Adebanjo has made away with as much as ten dead bodies of Biafrans. In addition to the felling of unarmed and peaceful Biafrans, Foluso Adebanjo ordered his men to burn American flags, Israeli flags, and Russian flags which they seized from the rallying Biafrans. Unknown to Foluso Adebanjo and his rampaging killer squads, all these were captured in video and shall be released to the appropriate prosecuting authority.

Therefore the denial by Mr. Foluso Adebanjo on the heinous crime he committed on the 20th January 2017 is deceptive and cannot pass the test of time. It is crystal clear now that Foluso Adebanjo and his colleagues at the Rivers State Police Command have joined the infamous group of genocidists such as General Buratai, IGP Solomon Arase, Col. Issah Abdullahi, etc who will spend the rest of their lives in prison for mass-murder. We want to assure Mr. Foluso Adebanjo and his colleagues that they must receive justice, no matter how long it takes.

We call upon the International Community to rise and condemn these despicable acts of Foluso Adebanjo and his colleagues. We also call upon the Envoys of America, Russia, and Israel to demand explanations from Foluso Adebanjo why he resorted to burning the flags of their respective countries. We assure the world that IPOB under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu remains peaceful and non-violent. Muhammadu Buhari and the British Government have tried in vain to drag us into armed rebellion, but we shall continue to resist such temptations.

We have set our eyes on the restoration of the nation of Biafra and shall never be distracted by Buhari and the British Government. We are doing so with the strong conviction that the restoration of Biafra is unstoppable, irrevocable, and irreversible. Deaths cannot stop us from taking that which God Almighty created for us, and we shall do so following the psalmist words of confidence in Psalm Chapter 27 verse 1.
For us, it is Biafra or death!!!

Biafra: Revealed! How Buhari's DSS Agents Trail, Abduct and kill Nnamdi Kanu's Visitors And Court Attendees


22 January, 2017

Information reaching Biafra Writers from a reliable source within Nigeria security operatives revealed that members of Buhari's Gestapo outfit also known as the Department of States Service, DSS on Tuesday evening 10th of January, 2017, after court hearing of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu’s treasonable felony case stormed the popular Utako bus terminal that houses most transport companies especially those commonly patronized by Easterners in search of Biafrans who had earlier gathered in solidarity with their leader at the federal high court, Abuja, that was not the first time such move was made our source further revealed.

The officials of the Gestapo organisation who came with an "unmarked Hilux bus" were vividly seen by IPOB intelligence unit patrolling from one end of the terminal to the other in search of Biafrans who they had expected to board buses from the terminal back to their various bases, confirming the inormative revealed to us.

The Gestapo outfit officials were noticed to be fixated and looking at the faces of the passengers to see if they can recognise those they had seen in the court earlier.

The high rate of disappearance of Biafrans who had travelled either to see the IPOB leader or march in solidarity with him of which the disappearance of Moses Agbo an IPOB journalist is the most recent, necessitated this special intelligence surveillance by the IPOB intelligence unit.

Puzzled by this development of continuous molesting, kidnapping, disappearance and in most cases murder of innocent Biafrans, those travelling to any of our solidarity rallies are directed to be weary of the activities of this Geatapo organisation and to protect themselves from falling victims to them.

Read also:BIAFRA: "YES WE CAN KILL THEM ALL"--OBAMA TELLS BUHARI AND OTHER ENEMIES OF BIAFRA AND ISRAEL

On behalf of IPOB leadership, Biafra Writers are by this notice alerting the world to be aware of Buhari's secret ploy to exterminate Biafrans by every means possible. In this regard, we are directing all Coordinators in Biafra land as well as those in the contraption called NigĂ©ria to always thoroughly cross check the numbers of Biafrans that travel to each rally or court sitting from their states with those that eventually return and do not hesitate to raise alarm inot event of  unaccounted rally/court attendee(s).

DSS should be held accountable for missing Biafrans henceforth since they have formed the habit of kidnapping Biafrans definitely without trial.

Read also:Biafra: IPOB-Trump Rally: Murderous Buhari Sanctioned Killing Of Biafrans After Being Omitted From Trump's Inauguration Guest List

As at last count, over 25 innocent Biafrans are still being held and rendered incommunicado by the Gestapo outfit without trial. This is apart from those that have remained unaccounted for or considered "eliminated" by the notorious organisation's with killer agents.

The list of those still being held includes Mazi Ikechukwu Ugwoha who was picked up on his way back to his state after visiting the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu in Kuje Prison. He was arrested with 3 others in his entourage. Others are Bright Chimezie Isinwa, Mazi Obasi, Ekene Onuora, Sunday Okafor, Justice Ude, Asochukwu Boniface and many others.

It is important to note that these innocents Biafrans have been in DSS detention for more than 120 days without been charged to court, which is a violation of their fundamental human rights.

These secret killings, abduction and indefinite detention of Biafrans must stop and the sane world must rise up and condemn these unpardonable maltreatment of Biafrans.

Biafra: IPOB-Trump Rally: The Horror, Carnage And Destruction of U.S, Israel, Russia & Biafra Flag, A Proof of Buhari's Extremism


22 January, 2017

The widely publicized IPOB-Trump solidarity rally which was held on the 20th of January with pre-notification letters to Nigerian security agencies and other relevant bodies was confronted with excessive use of lethal force by Nigeria joint security forces. As early as 8:30 am, Biafrans had gathered at Rumuola junction in Igweocha otherwise known as Port Harcourt with America, Isreal, Russia and Biafra flags for the rally but all over the junction were surrounded by agents of the Nigerian army, DSS, Police and the Airforce team hovering all over the sky with their gunboat choppers.

THE KILLINGS AND KIDNAPPINGS

Close to Rumuola is a street by the name “Timothy lane;” where the DSS agents shot dead three Biafrans and forcefully abducted over eleven of them. The remaining of those they shot were whisked away in their white Ford pickup van to unknown destinations.  The event forced Biafrans to move down to Hotel Presidential junction where we all gathered for the peaceful solidarity rally.

Read also:Biafra: IPOB-Trump Rally: Many Feared Killed As Nigerian Army Attacks IPOB In Igweocha

Biafrans from all works of life including mothers, fathers and children joined the rally in thousands as planned. From hotel presidential junction, those who were mandated to see non-disruption of free flow of traffic did a perfect work as Biafrans were organised to maintain sideway walks.

From Hotel Presidential, they got to Waterlines junction where we met huge build-up of security officers attached to the Nigerian Police Force who were armed to the teeth with fierce look. We peacefully passed by, marching to “Garrison Junction”.  Between St. Johns and Garrison were presence of the Nigerian army blocking the road with their armoured vehicles and guns.

Sighting their presence, our Coordinators pleaded with them to allow us pass as we are on solidarity rally for the US President Donald Trump’s inauguration. But on hearing the name “Donald Trump,” some of them shouted “To hell with Donald Trump”, “Thunder fire una and that useless man” (sic), “Tell him that this is not America”, “God punish you and Trump”,” etc.




At this point, we were muffled as there were enforcement of other army personnel and their armoured vehicles in front of us. Behind Waterlines junction were fierce looking police officers, while the army officers were making their expressions. Biafrans were only holding flags and placards with the pictures of Nnamdi Kanu, Donald Trump, Vladmir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu.

Wasting no further time, these soldiers started firing live bullets at us. The point at which we stood being a bridge before Garrison junction, many seeing their compatriots falling dead, ran disparagingly.

While the soldiers were shooting from the front, the Police we crossed at Waterlines junction were shooting from behind. Our mothers, children and the disabled were helpless as many of them lost their lives and were abducted by the police and army to an unknown place. The incident was horrific!

Read also:BIAFRA: DONALD TRUMP AND NNAMDI KANU...THE DUO TO CHAMPION THE POSITIVE NEW WORLD ORDER

I saw many disabled persons as they jumped over the bridge for safety in fear of the soldiers and the police bullets. Those who were in their pool of blood were captured by the forces, beaten to stupor and whisked away to unknown locations. Only God knows what they are passing through in the hands of the terrorist Nigerian army.

Why were innocent people being terrorised? We were killed, maimed and abducted by the Nigerian federal troops simply because we are on a solidarity match for Donald Trump and were holding American, Israel and Russian flags! When has these insignias constitute threats to International or Nigerian laws? When has solidarity rally for the US President amount to criminal cause? Those who celebrated over 9/11 attack on US in Northern Nigeria were not killed. Is our crime simply because we are Biafrans?

The loss of lives and abduction of Biafrans on Trump’s rally is a clear indication that the Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal government will stand against the newly sworn in US President, Donald Trump and has dared him by their unscrupulous actions.

The Nigerian army’s boldness in destroying US, Russia and Israeli flags as often done in the Arab world is a clear indication that Nigeria and her president are extremists. The world in her entirety should prevail on Nigeria to release the dead bodies and free over hundreds of innocent Biafrans they kidnapped.

Biafra: " Buhari Is An Unrepentant Killer, There Is Nothing Wrong In Wishing Him Death"--Charles Ogbu


The notion that those who wish President Muhammadu Buhari never come back from his medical vacation alive are evil is a very wrong notion. One which is borne out of a dishonest desire to paint the victims as the perpetrator and the perpetrator as the victims.

There is absolutely nothing wrong in a man wishing death on another who has proven beyond doubt that he wants nothing but his death. This is human nature.  And no amount of pseudo-intellectual moralization will change this fact. We can all come here to mouth off things like: "It is evil to wish death on your fellow human being", "Those who wish the president death will die before him" etc.

But deep down, we all know it takes the heart of Mother Theresa, virgin Mary and even Jesus Christ combined for a man to pray for the survival of a president who uses the army trained and equipped with tax payers' money to kill the same  citizens he is being paid to protect while using the same army to protect the same terrorists he has a legal duty to kill.

Read also:MUHAMMADU BUHARI "AFRAID TO DIE BUT NOT AFRAID TO KILL".

The moment you have a large number of the citizenry wishing death on their president, instead of trying to appear all righteous by reprimanding them, just pause and think and ask yourself some questions.

Questions like:

●What kind of a man is this president?

●What has he done to his own people to warrant this kind of raw hate being openly expressed against him?

Getting answers to the above question is a more wholistic approach to the issue than just sitting down there, acting all holy.

In Agatu, Fulani terrorists who share kinship with this president killed not less than 500 people and even admitted it. As I type this, none of them has been prosecuted. And to further humiliate this Agatu people, these fulani beasts yet live in the same Agatu land for which these Agatu people were massacred. These could never have been possible without the direct approval of the president who control the security agencies and share the same ancestry as these fulanis.

If you were from Agatu, what would you wish this president?

The people of Southern Kaduna have had their lives, their land and their dignity as humans taken from them by these same Fulani beasts working with the active connivance of Governor Elrufai who pays them and even retain the criminal audacity to announce it. Under a State of emergency in 3 L.G.A in southern kaduna, no Southern Kaduna person was allowed to move out of his house but these fulani terrorists still managed to attack some communities in Jema'a local govt on the 24th and 25th of December 2016. Are you waiting for a certain Charles Ogbu to tell you that for an attack to happen in an area under a state of emergency, it is either the military men there allowed it or they were the ones who carried out the attack? You don't need the brain of Albert Einstein to figure this out.

Buhari is the man we are paying to protect us. He controls all our armed forces. What did he do about southern Kaduna? Nothing! Even as he was very swift in responding to the situation in The Gambia by deploying troops.

If you were from Southern Kaduna, what would you wish this president?

IPOB:

On the 9th Feb,2016, members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra gathered inside Ngwa high school, Aba, Abia state to pray. They were not on the road, they were not in Port Harcourt, they were not even carrying placard. They were simply praying in a school field. Yet, Buhari's army and police visited death on them.

On 29th and 30th May 2016, the same IPOB gathered inside a church in Onitsha to remember their heroes. Again, Buhari's military gifted them with death right inside the house of God. Survivors were bathed with raw acid, according to a detailed report with video evidence released by Amnesty International.

Buhari has not punished any soldier for any of these moral tragedies. If any of your relative was among those youths murdered in cold blood for no just cause, what would you wish the president who supervised this evil? If you were a Shiite Muslim, would you not be tempted to wish this president death?

I'm not even talking about millions of people whose means of livelihood have been destroyed by the demonic fiscal policy of this government. I won't even bore you with millions rendered useless as a result of devilish import policies introduced by this govt. Just speak with anyone who is/was in importation business. Ask that person, "how is business?" or "When last did you go to market?"

When you are done, carry out a survey in your locality or even in a market near you. Simply ask the people: "Do you wish this president death or life?"  The result of this survey will shock you.

Please, let's tell ourselves the truth. It is better you are hated for who you are than loved for who you are not.

Muhammadu Buhari is hate made flesh. The anti-Buhari sentiment blowing across the country has nothing to do with the fact that he is a Northern Muslim. After all, the late president, the good man, Umar Yar'Adua was a Northern Muslim from the same Katsina state as Buhari. Yet, even the devil was very pleased with him.

What a man soweth, he shall reap. Buhari has made raw hate and ethnoreligious bigotry an official govt policy. And, the same hate and ethno-religious bigotry he must reap! You cannot plant Cocoyam and expect to harvest yam.

Pray for the president if you must but please, stop insulting our intelligence by pretending not to know why others would rather he dies.
