Biafra: Court Orders Release Of Detained Biafra Activists In Delta State

April 30, 2017

ASABA— The Delta state High Court on Tuesday, 25th April, 2017, ordered for the immediate release of three out of seven illegally detained members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, for lack of proof of evidence in the allegation slandered against them by the State Police.

According to our source from Asaba, the Biafra agitators were arrested and detained during one of the IPOB protests on 15th June, 2016, in Asaba and were later charged to court on the purported murder of some Nigerian officers and security operatives.

But on Tuesday last week, when the trial judge, Hon. Justice (Mrs) Flora Azinge, was delivering ruling on their bail applications, she stated that “the proof of evidence in support of the charges is too watery and not weighty enough to deny the defendants bail.”

The names of the IPOB members granted bail are Obiakonwa Chisom, Iheanacho Joseph and Ifeanyi Ani.

Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor who is their defense counsel was in Asaba earlier this year, on the 10th of February, for the hearing, but because the adjourned date clashed with the same day the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, was granted bail at an Abuja Federal High Court, he had to assign the case to one Barrister Ezeokeke Augustine, Esq.

After the hearing on their bail applications, the presiding judge, separated dates for their ruling in which only three out of the seven defendants were taken to court last Tuesday and was granted bail.

The judge thereafter, adjourned ruling for the remaining four defendants on the 2nd and 4th of May, 2017.

Speaking to Biafra Writers  on the court’s ruling for granting the accused bail, the defense lawyer, Barrister Ezeokeke said; “It is my view that the learned trial judge, Hon. Justice Azinge, exercised her judiciary discretion in a judicious manner, having regards to the facts and evidence presented before her and not minding the heavy nature of the offence(murder), which is a capital offense, because it is a settled law that bail is at the total discretion of the court whether or not it’s a capital offence.

“It is therefore not in doubt that the judge acted within the ambits of the law.”

Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu's Iron Bail: Another Ploy To Elongate Biafra Restoration Project

April 30, 2017

Since the kidnap of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian gestapo organisation, the DSS on the order of dictator Muhammadu Buhari in October 2015, the Indigenous People of Biafra have continued to demand for only thing, which is the "unconditional release" of her leader and not the type granted him by Binta Nyako on the 25th of April, 2017.  Nnamdi Kanu is a political prisoner who has committed no crime or exhibited any action that is untoward; yet Muhammadu Buhari and his Hausa-Fulani cabals have continued to play hide-and –seek using the Nigerian judiciary as its puppet in holding Kanu to ransom.

It is on record that Justice Ademola Adeniyi on December 17, 2015 ordered the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Abuja high court, but that order has not been obeyed by Buhari and his government till date, yet Binta Nyako is giving another order of bail grant which is in sharp contrast to that of his learned colleague, Justice Ademola, and not in line with the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Some barbaric conditions which people described as emanating from the pit of hell. I keep wondering why Buhari and his government cannot obey the first court order by justice Ademola Adeniyi and would expect Biafrans to accept the stringent conditions written in Aso Rock.

The truth is that from every indication, the bail terms giving to Mazi Kanu is politically motivated and is not backed up by the Nigerian constitution. A condition that violates the right of a citizen is null and void as the court is expected to protect human rights and not be a violator of it. Nevertheless, we are not unaware that this is a well calculated strategy to further delay Kanu’s case and elongate our agitation for the restoration of Biafra.

If Mazi Kanu’s bail was really based on health issues as she (Binta) said, why giving terms that are capable of killing him when he should be receiving treatment? why giving terms that would have been better off than not granting him bail at all?

That Mazi Kanu must not grant interviews or press briefings while on bail is highly preposterous and unheard of. That he must also not be found in the company of people numbering more than ten (10) simply means he has been denied freedom of movement as there is no way he won't be accosted by thousands as a leader of his people. This can be best described as judicial extremism. It is a total violation of Mazi Kanu’s right to free speech and association as provided by section 39 and 40 of Nigerian constitution.

By giving such stringent bail conditions, Binta Nyako has indirectly convicted Mazi Nnamdi Kanu without trial, because she has only succeeded in putting him in isolation outside Kuje prison. This is against section 36(5) of the Nigerian constitution, which provides that a man standing trial remains innocent until proven guilty by the court. Binta Nyako is nothing but a big disgrace to the Nigerian judiciary.

We are the Indigenous People of Biafra and Nnamdi Kanu is our leader. We are not interested in the jungle bail and conditions attached to it. We demand the unconditional release of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and nothing less. We know that Muhammadu Buhari and his cabals are trying to test our resolve but they should know that the gentle step of a tiger does not mean cowardice.

Biafra: Justice Nyako Joins Buhari-Mocking Campaign Of Israel By Granting Kanu "Iron Bail " Conditions

April 30, 2017

The state of Israel and the Jewish people all over the world are often targeted by muslims who are naturally anti semantic fellows. Just like other core Arabic nations, the Hausa/Fulani elements in Nigeria often nurture sheer hatred towards the Israelis and Biafran Jews, and they have never failed to express it at any slightest opportunity.

Buhari’s re-emergence into power has seen a whole new radical approach of attacking Israel. The first bold step to join the team of hostile anti- semantic leagues against the Jews by Buhari’s regime was recorded in September 2015, during the UN head of states and government Summit in the US. Breaking all protocol, Muhammadu Buhari lashed at Israel and urged/campaigned for a joint coalition of Arab/Islamic front against Israel.

While speaking to Emir of Qatar, Tamim Bin Hammad Al-Thani on February 2017, Buhari took his threat against Israel to a higher level and fiercely said “I want to assure you that we will stand side by side with you, until our brothers and sisters in Palestine has achieved their desired objective”. To those who are baby in the knowledge of how deep anti-semantic blood flows in Buhari's vein, the above quote might come as a surprise, but the knowledgeable ones know that the anti semantic posture of Buhari runs in the DNA of every Islamic fundamentalist of which Buhari is a forerunner.

Having seen the weaknesses of Nigeria’s Armed Forces to launch attack against Israel, Buhari resolved to attacking the Biafran Jews whom he think will justify and satisfy his whims and caprices. Biafrans are being murdered daily by Islamists under guise of Nigerian Military. As a soft target of hitting Israel, Buhari has continued to commit war crimes against the Biafrans who share close affinity with Israel. Though at official level, there is this false pretence by the Hausa/Fulanis not to be aware of Biafrans' Jewish lineage. But when it comes to sending a strong message to Israel, Biafrans are the best chosen target.

The 25th April, 2017 Court Case between the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu and the Buhari-led government of Nigeria saw the unhidden exhibition of the deep hatred against anything or anyone called “Jewish” by the Nigerian government. The presiding Judge, Binta Nyako having known that Nnamdi Kanu practices Judaism before the scheduled date of his bail ruling decided to punish him with “Iron bail” conditions.

Seeing Nnamdi Kanu's boldness in exhibiting his religious inclination both in words, action and dress sense, Binta invoked the Koranic order which states “O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends… (5.51)”.  As earlier promised by Justice Binta Nyako to extend Islamic measures in Kanu’s case base on the premise that he is a defiant Jew who doesn’t fear any man, she demanded as part of his bail conditions a highly placed Jewish religious leader, something learned individuals in her field described as alien and beyond her jurisprudence. An observer cum surety whose identity must be captured in google as she claimed is an outright affront to Jewish religious practitioners.

Israel should as a matter of threat to Judaism and the state of Israel stand out and make her voice heard loud and clear in this case concerning Nnamdi Kanu. Having viciously humiliated Christians in Nigeria, the war is taken to the door step of the Jews. Like Haman, there is a covert and overt plan by Buhari to hang the Biafran Jews in Nigeria. Israel must stand out to be counted as a friend of Biafrans.

Biafra: Our Demand Is Simple, Unconditional Release Of Nnamdi Kanu-- Abia State IPOB Women & Children

April 30, 2017

ABA- It came as a surprise when the children and women of the indigenous people of Biafra in Abia state stormed the streets of Aba in their numbers, demanding the unconditional release of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The children and women appeared in Biafra colors, holding, flying biafran flag and singing praises of Nnamdi Kanu as they rally.

While addressing the crowd that came out from their shops to cheer them up at Ariaria International market, the representative of the children said “Biafra is our last hope; our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is still in prison eventhough he has been granted bail because he is fighting for our freedom; he is a prisoner of conscience, his human right has been trampled upon, his children needs him, his wife needs him, we the children of the indigenous people of Biafra IPOB needs him, we want him to be released unconditionally, he is only a freedom fighter” as she broke into tears.

The women also communicated through their songs, they made the public to understand that they are tired of being called Nigerians, they are Biafrans and all they demand is the unconditional release of our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and freedom of Biafra.

Biafra Writers in chat with the IPOB Abia state coordinator Mazi Ikechukwu Ugwoha, he extended his heart-felt gratitude to the IPOB women, children and their parents who saw the need for the rally and answered his call, stating that this is the first rally he organized since his release from DSS dungeon after several months in Abia state prison.

Mazi Ikechukwu in his words “the restoration of Biafra is a task that must be achieved by IPOB under the leadership of our prophet Mazi Nnamdi kanu, we will continue to pursue this cause in the most civilized manner until we are totally free from Nigeria.

"The world knows that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a political prisoner; Self-determination is a universal law so he did not commit any crime by fighting for the self-determination of the Indigenous People of Biafra. The condition attached to our leader Mazi Nnadi Kanu’s bail is a serious attack on his human right. We shall keep demanding for his unconditional release until he is totally free” he said.

Mazi Ikechukwu also reminded Biafrans that May 30th 2017 is the day we sit at home as commanded by the supreme leadership of IPOB, to honour our fallen heroes, urging every Biafran in Abia state, Biafra land and Nigeria to shut down their businesses in the honor of those who died that we may leave.

The religious fanatism of Muhammadu Buhari knows no bound. He is madly in extreme position that he wishes he could lead another Jihad down to other non-Muslim communities of Nigeria. If Buhari regrets anything, it is his non-achievement of this singular plan in his youth.

The coming of this religion bigot in 2015 having been heavily funded and delivered by Saudi Arabia, the US under Obama and David Cameron of Britain, has nothing in mind to achieve other than quick Islamisation of the entire Nigeria. In expressing his readiness for this, he infiltrated his cabinet with fundamentalists and strategically position Muslims in all the Armed Forces and service cheifs.  Having led the ground ready for official Islamisation of the country, he started the release of Boko Haram prisoners whom he knows will do the Jihad for him and reabsorb them into the Nigerian military.

READ THIS: Breaking: IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu Fulfills Bail Conditions, Leaves Kuje For His Home

In March 2016, he gathered world Muslim leaders in Abuja for briefing and inspection of how prepared his foot soldiers are.  The briefing was done under the pretense of International Islamic Conference held in Abuja. The road map was sketched, and areas of disagreement in plans were reconciled with his international funders.

Since then many Christians and other non-Sunni Islamic adherence have been killed and gruesomely murdered. At the supervision of this present Government, their Jihadi-soldiers under the false flag of Herdsmen have wrecked down various Christians communities and many lives lost at the applauds of the present regime.  Christian clergymen were asked not to speak or get molested by the DSS and other security operatives. Those of the clergymen who defied this orders were humiliated and treated like animals.

Having succeeded in intimidating Christians and the Shiites, the Government is poised to rout out the observance of Jewish Religion in Nigeria. This they are doing by configuring all the security arms and agencies of the government to map out harsh measures in dealing with them. 

The recent harsh and stringent bail condition melted on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu having heard that he is of the Jewish faith by the Judge is a clear affront and soft approach of clamping down on the Jewish Religion observance in the country. If the experiment is allowed unchecked, the next move will be to marshal out a bloody and draconian approach against the Jewish Religion observance in Nigeria.

It will be recalled that Nigeria is a free religion state as enshrined in the 1999 constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria but the attack on other religious faith in Nigeria leaves an unanswered question if Nigeria is really practicing freedom of religion. It is very disheartening that Nigeria prefers to embrace a very violent religion like Islam as opposed to other religions as Christianity and Judaism.

As I continue to peruse the events that led to the bail of our leader, I noticed the helpless situation the Nigerian judiciary found herself in. She was frustrated beyond words by the fact that this case can never be manipulated without notice. It has gained attraction from every sector in this embodiment of contraption Nigeria and overseas.

I can hardly conceal my joy at the fact that in less than two years that we had been tagged jobless, noisemakers,miscreants, etc, those same people that christened us with vile names are now identifying with "miscreants." We had been looked down upon and spoken Ill about so many times. I remember I had quarreled with many and made enemies too on social media because of my resolve to fight for the restoration of Biafra.

Read also:Biafra: Kanu’s Bail Conditions Exposes The Remote Controlled Justice In Nigeria

We had been ridiculed, cajoled and threatened beyond description, but now we have created vibes around the globe. We have broken up fallow grounds.

The Nigerian government has come to realize that we are more united than ever, even in adversity. In the face of intimidation and death, we refused to bulge or give up but resisted and openly declared boldly, " Biafra or death!"

Gone are those days, when newspapers were seized and publishers challenged, gone are the times media houses laid embargo on Biafra news. Now everyone is listening to or talking about Biafra news. She has become a household name.

Read also:Biafra: Kanu's Bail Is A Social Quarantine, Yet He Is Undeterred And Biafra Is Winning

These victories did not come easy though, but they are worthwhile. Like miracles, accolades and recognition are coming from all angles. Dignitaries are identitying with and attaching themselves to the struggle, boundaries are broken down and surely the Nigerian government have been shamed and had no choice than to release our leader to us.

The stringent conditions make no difference as he regained freedom to forge ahead. Binta's unheard and unlawful conditions are tantamount to disgraced ego, therefore she had no choice than to voice such unethical verdict unheard of in any civil court and civil rights organization.

This caption is of a continued imprisonment which is unrealistic and contestable. Her barring his freedom of speech and movement is a total infringement on his fundamental human rights under a supposed democratic rule, therefore it does not hold water and can be protested.

How can he be stopped from being in the midst of more than ten people when family members exceed that number? How do they plan to isolate him like a leper in this state? What exactly is the Nigerian government afraid of and trying to hide?
Unfortunately, IPOB is as white as snow and will not be a party to corruption. These impossible conditions will fail woefully, then let's see how a new phase unfolds.

The Nigerian government is fulfilling an Igbo adage which enumerates that "" onye nahughi ebe Oga ejide aka, ojide mkpere ya!" Meaning that Binta is trying to save her battered ego with such pronouncements.


Critically looking at the part stating " a serving senator from the east..." There is a major clause for vindictive discrimination and futuristic scheme to political attack. The publicized fact remains that Nigeria is not a union of same people with allegiance to each other but an enforced compartment by greedy Britian and northern Nigeria.

The demand for an eastern serving senator is a direct implication and jeopardy to anyone who comes forth, what political undertones are engraved in such a twisted manner.

If the Nigerian judiciary is not corrupt, why will she demand a whooping N 100,000,000.00 ( one hundred million) from sureties? Are they recovering booties? The terrorists and murderers released by this administration with monetary compensations, who surtied them as such?

Read also:Biafra: Kanu's "Iron Bail" Condition Exposes Britain's Hypocrisy and Wickedness Towards Citizen

By demanding for a religions leader, does it mean that a new criteria has been approved to for testifying as mandated? Can the testimony of pastors, imams herbalists, etc now be accessories for bail out?

These hard won victory is comical, confusing and foolhardy. All in all, we came away smiling, victorious. We spoke and they listened. The rebirth of Biafra has upgraded. They stood still for Biafra! Buhari has eaten his words, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu has been let go no matter the conditions.

Biafra will gigantically stroll into existence, nothing stopping her. The turn out will be fantastic as our leader is here to lead us on again as Moses returned from the mountain top.

All hail Biafra!
Welcome back Mazi Nnamdi Kanu!

Biafra: Kanu's Bail Is A Social Quarantine, Yet He Is Undeterred And Biafra Is Winning

April 29, 2017

The “iron bail” condition levelled on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, heated the airwave with “dismay” and “unacceptability” from various quarters. These stringent bail conditions, quickly brought to cessation, the ecstasies and joy that accompanied the news. This was followed by an outpour of divergent opinions and analysis of what should be the right dimension to tow. Some legal experts argued that the stringent bail conditions ought to be perfected first before the application of 'bail variation'.

The likes of Mike Ozekhome, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, took time on the pages of the national dailies to dissect these stringent bail conditions offered to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and advised that Nnamdi Kanu's legal team should go for 'bail variation' first than struggling to meet it. The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo (an Igbo Socio-cultural outfit), Nnia Nwodo, having also x-rayed the bail conditions, was marvelled at such draconian orders dished out by a judge that is supposed uphold the right of citizens . These individuals, social commentators and legal analysts have all expressed their views over the bail conditions, which was generally seen by all as a reflection of the decayed judicial system in Nigeria.

One thing is clear here, the bail granted to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was denied him by this same court on several occasions the defence counsel pleaded (and on different grounds). The admittance of granting him bail by this same partisan judge (or better referred to as the prosecuting judge) was evidently due to pressures from the international communities and the negative influence this particular case in exerting on the Nigerian government.

Ordinarily, the order from Aso Rock and No 10 Downing Street is: "No bail till 2019". But when it became obvious that the law is express on the need for him to be granted bail, Aso Rock has to write out-of-context bail conditions to demoralise him (Nnamdi Kanu). The stringent bail condition was given for two main purposes:- to give him a condition he will not meet and to socially quarantine him even when he meets the bail condition. The postulation is, if he is unable to meet the bail condition, it then means the blame will move to him if anything happens to him  and the narration will be -that his people have distanced themselves from him. The second postulation is that if he finally meets the bail, he will be socially caged in a way that he is still a prisoner (though out of prison).

For those of us who at the initial time, wished he doesn’t meet the bail condition, we must know that the 'iron bail' meted on the Director of Radio Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is a clear message from Nigeria that Kanu remains an arch foe and a threat to "One Nigeria"; this is unlike Ralph Uwazurike's narrative, where Uwazuruike compromised and sold out the struggle. The prison gate was opened and he was asked to walk away with much less stringent bail conditions.

Beyond every doubt, events have proven that this struggle of Biafra restoration is one that is divine and cannot be thwarted by any mortal. Each time the enemy rises like a great flood, the Most High God has always raised a standard against it. All the machinations against this struggle has always turned to be a stepping stone to greater heights.

Read also:Biafra: Kanu's "Iron Bail" Condition Exposes Britain's Hypocrisy and Wickedness Towards Citizen

As much as Hashem can lead me, I wish to deliberate a little on these conditions -the 'loose ends' in them and the folly inherent in those threatening words of Justice Binta Nyako on 25 April 2017 at the Federal High Court, Abuja.


Though this is unacceptable to Biafrans and lovers of freedom all around the world, but what these unrepentant despots within the corridors of power refuse to understand is that this statement does not deter Nnamdi Kanu from addressing Biafrans and the world through a proxy. If he is barred from speaking to men and women of the press, he could as well speak to one or two persons who will then make it viral. These tyrants refuse to understand that IPOB has been led for close to two (2) years of Nnamdi Kanu's incarceration, during which he has not addressed the press; yet his message is taken as an order by Biafrans. Nnamdi Kanu does not need to speak to the press to pass his message across. Biafrans know his voice and when we hear it, we fall in. The government of IPOB is not a ragtag or a resemblance of what is obtainable in Nigeria; once a message is passed across via the right channel, that settles it.



This is a proof that modern technology is 50 years ahead of Nigeria; an indeliberate but shameful show of illiteracy. If the purpose of this draconian order is to avert or stop him from meeting members of IPOB, then Justice Binta goofed terribly. IPOB as a body is technologically advanced. Physically, Nnamdi Kanu might not be able to associate with two hundred thousand people at a time but digitally, he can associate with over 6 million Biafrans at a time. This is not the age of 'metal gong' where physical interaction is necessary for efficient communication. By the click of a button, Nnamdi Kanu can gather or disperse over 3 million Biafrans -that is how much influence he commands. He did not need more than 10 men to stage a Sit-At-Home protest that shut down all the major cities of Biafra. Nnamdi Kanu has risen far above the limits of Binta's threats.

To this end, the entire family or the Indigenous People Of Biafra and lovers of freedom around the world, celebrate with Nnamdi Kanu on this mighty triumph against a century old intimidation. We wish him speedy recovery and a happy stay at Ahara Kingdom.

Long Live Nnamdi Kanu
Long Live The Indigenous People Of Biafra 
Long Live The Sovereign State Of Biafra.
