Southeast Insecurity: Government Aims To Rally The People Against IPOB

By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Biafra Writers

August 17th, 2023.

Before this wind of insecurity in southeast gummed on the lips of the Nigerian media, the Southeast region has for long been militarized to the brim. Just as with every other territory under military siege in the world, the soldiers assigned to this region have been committing all manner of crimes mostly in the night. They rape, rob, extort, and harass citizens without provocation. Fortunately for the region however, IPOB emerged. 

The rise of insecurity in the region and the consequent spurious moves by the Nigerian government and its pocketed duplicitous media to profile the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) as the culprit, call for urgent attention. Before  we get bamboozled by the enemy media and so cast our stone at IPOB, let us ponder on the processes that brought insecurity into existence in the region. Let's ask ourselves how the insecurity in the Southeast began, what caused it, who is behind it and who fought against it? These are the synoptical questions that will not only help us ascertain the perpetrators but also equip our minds to be able to digest the enemy's scheme in accusing IPOB.

Whenever the issue of southeast insecurity is presented on the table, the Fulani movement called Fulani Nationalism and popularly known as Ruga, should come to mind. The Buhari government through Ruga occasioned insecurity on regions opposed to it. Many lives and properties were destroyed trying to force it on the people. IPOB being the single most important body in that vehement rejection, became an enemy of the government. 

Ruga massacred families, heightened tension, destroyed homes and means of livelihood. The horrible stories of an old women raped in their farms, young girls gangraped, mother and child butchered in their farms, villages burnt etc, were no good news at all. IPOB rose to the occasion.

It is said that politics and insecurity are one. The stealing of the people's mandate through the government's impossition of Hope Uzodinma as the governor of Imo State was to foster the implementation of Ruga. It was also to punish the southeast region that stood against Ruga through IPOB. By stealing the people's mandate, the government created insecurity. 

In a sane society that endorses democracy, protest remains one of the machineries citizens register their feelings. But in a flamboyant disregard to its own law, Nigerian government went ahead to massacre IPOB protesters, creating unnecessary tensions and insecurity. 

If the government intention was never to get at IPOB by creating insecurity in the most peaceful region in the country, what then was the reason behind the massacres.  If the government should enforce a movement that decapitates her citizens, who then occasioned insecurity upon the region?

In all intent and purposes, the Nigerian government in their desperation to demonize IPOB, wants to rally the people against IPOB by accusing IPOB of being behind the insecurity in southeast. My advice to the people is to stay focused and don't get hoodwinked by the brown-envelope Nigerian media lies.

Biafra War II- What To Expect

By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Biafra Writers

August 9th, 2023.

On May 27th, 1967, the Chiefs and Elders representing the Eastern Nigeria, after due consideration of the dangers living in Nigeria poses, went ahead to mandate His Excellency, Lieutenant Colonel Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, the then Military Governor of Eastern Nigeria, to declare the Eastern Nigeria an independent state known as the Republic of Biafra.

The aftermath of this declaration is the Biafra-Nigeria war. Nigeria was the aggressor. The war which lasted from 1967-1970 was spuriously declared no victor no vanquished even though the three Rs(Rehabilitation, Reconciliation and Reconstruction) were swept under the carpet.

The war ended in 1970 but the heroic deeds of the Biafran people still dominate the media and resonate till date. Within just three years of independence, Biafrans attained a feat that no African country has ever attained up till now. At the time when technology was at its infancy, Biafra became the first and only African country to build and successfully launch a rocket system and a submarine. Biafrans invented their own bomb and spoke to the world through a telecommunication system engineered by local ingenuity. They built armoured tanks, cars, extracted and refined petrol with their own indigenous technology called the 'The Biafran pot.' Etc.

These were in more than 50 years ago when technology has not become a source of income in Biafra. In recent time, technology has become a means of survival for many in Biafra. There are more than fifteen cities in Biafra land today that are known for their geniuses in technology.

These cities are specialists in duplicating,  reproducing and refurbishing all kinds of technologies they can see or lay hands on. Many of them are hiding from the Nigerian government. 

In addition to this, many inventions have been seen on social media and these are coming from Biafrans. According to a Yoruba man, if the Nigerian government is reasonable enough, they should invest a little in technology using Biafrans, because these people are talented in technology.

All over the world Biafrans are making breakthroughs in technology. If these talents could be brought together in a war, the world should be ready for very shocking inventions that would rock the earth. A people don't know their capabilities until they are pushed to war which goes to buttress the conviction that necessity breeds invention. 

In Nigeria, Biafrans are found in all states much more than any other tribe. This is so even as Nigerian authority in its duplicity portrays Biafran population as low in census. If such a people decides to take up arms, to destroy the Nigeria will be very easy as infiltration will be carried out without much obstruction.

A planned war cannot be compared to an unplanned war. The first happened abruptly without enough time to plan. Now there's enough time to plan and enough chances to achieve whatever goal one desires.  

There are millions of reasons and motivations to push a Biafran to war. On the other hand, anyone who dies for Nigeria would be considered a fool by the relatives and friends. Nigeria has pushed her citizens to the wall, majority have lost hope in Nigeria. Will Nigeria be left to perish by her inhabitants? Your answer is as good as mine.

Nigerian Youths: Kanu The Only Way To Regain Your Voice

Nigerian Youths: Kanu The Only Way To Regain Your Voice 

By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Biafra Times 

July 3, 2023

It is now two years since this humongous cruelty was meted out against the leader of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Nigerian government contravenes its own law just to crush the freedom fighter. Though the court  discharged and acquitted Kanu of all charges, the government still held him.

The EndSars massacre and the recent unprecedented electoral fraud orchestrated on the people have triggered a cascade of probing questions among the citizens. The youths in particular now wonder if they are of any value in the country they call their own.

While many were still wondering why the victims of EndSars massacre are yet to get justice, the biggest electoral malpractice was occasioned on the people. It was a broad day robbery and the perpetrators didn't even bother to cover their tracks.  Conversations are therefore around the impunity. Why haven't they been brought to book? why wasn't the election cancelled? Is there no voice for the voiceless?

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is the missing rib. While he was out there, he always came handy is situations like this. He is the inspiration the youths crave. The voice in the deep. A game changer whose operations bring the government to board. 

Held in solitary confinement, his voice is caged and the common man emasculated. If the youths would stage any meaningful engagement, then they'd better demand Kanu's release, for him alone is the needed catalyst.

Nnamdi Kanu, a Prisoner of Conscience

Nnamdi Kanu, a Prisoner of Conscience

By Ofor Princewill Akubumma | Biafra Writers

June 26, 2023

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)

It is now exactly two years since the Nigerian government abducted, tortured and kept Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in solitary confinement of the Nigerian secret police, DSS, cell in Abuja.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, a British-Nigerian activist, was kidnapped by the Nigerian authorities in connivance with Kenyan government on June 18, 2021, at the parking lot of the Jomo Kenyatta International airport, Kenya, where he went for a medical check up. 

He was taken to a private residence, chanined on  the bare floor, tortured in the most inhumane manner for days, blindfolded and subsequently flown in a private jet back to Nigeria on handcuffs like a common criminal. 

On arrival to Nigeria, he was taken to the detention cells of the Department of State Security, DSS, in Abuja the Nigerian capital where he is being subjected to all manners of torture and inhumane treatment ever since. As a result, he developed a severe ear infection and other countless ailments in the solitary confinement he was kept, culminating in continual deterioration of health every passing day. Even at this, he is denied access to his personal doctors. 

Irrespective of the fact that he was extraordinarily renditioned to Nigeria from Kenya, a crime on itself that contravenes the laws of cross border arrest and arbitrary detention, the Nigerian government has refused to obey their own court order which had earlier discharged and acquited him back in October of 2022 by a federal appeal court in the country. 

Moreover, aside the court rulings that freed him after all the frivolous 15 count charges levelled against him were squashed by his legal team, a UN working group, after studying the situation surrounding his abduction and rendition, also ordered that he should be released, yet the Nigerian authorities refused to obey any of these orders.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu leads a movement that is seeking an independent state of Biafra from Nigeria on the grounds of gross marginalization and lack of inclusiveness of the Biafran in the scheme of things in a federal Nigeria. The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, that he leads is legally registered in over 88 countries in the world, and are going about their agitation in the most peaceful manner since its inception in 2014. IPOB is a massive freedom movement of over 60 million followers both at home and in diaspora. 

Being a peaceful movement that believes in the rule of law, Nnamdi Kanu's IPOB have exploited every options in getting justice for their detained leader as they kept pushing for an independent Biafra state through referendum. Sadly however, the Nigerian government keeps flouting court orders.

International Report By Nigeria’s Intersociety

Monday, 12th June 2023, Onitsha-Nigeria


Fulani Jihadists Slaughtered 700 Christians As “Farewell Gifts” To Nigerian Radical Islamic Leaders

The Nigerian radical Islamic leaders who marked the end of their civilian office tenures on 29th May 2023 were wished “farewell” by Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen who marked the end of their office tenures by slaughtering not less than 700 defenseless Christians in May 2023 (month of handover). In a detailed investigation by the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law, it was gathered that not less than 300 Christians were slaughtered in Plateau State (Mangu county, etc) between 15th and 17th May 2023 alone. The second worst hit State is Benue where not less than 110 Christians were slaughtered in May-early June 2023 including 40 slaughtered between 3rd and 4th June 2023 and 18 defenseless Christians hacked to death on 21st May 2023 as well as 28 others slaughtered between 7th and 10th May 2023. In all, Benue State accounted for over 190 Christian deaths between 12th April and 12th June 2023                       

The third worst hit State is Kaduna where not less than 100 Christians were slaughtered between 12th April and 12th June 2023. The out-gone Government of Kaduna State-backed killing of Christians as “farewell gifts” had included slaughtering of 33 Christians by Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen on 15th April 2023 in Runji village in Atyap, Zango Kataf LGA of Kaduna State, during which 42 houses were burned down or destroyed. Between March and April 2023, not less than 68 Christians were slaughtered in Atyap Land alone; with less than 10 Christian school children abducted on 4th April from Government Secondary School Avon in Kachia LGA of Kaduna State who were taken into Jihadists’ captivity.  According to the Southern Kaduna Peoples’ Union (SOKAPU), not less than 245 Southern Kaduna communities have been sacked and violently occupied by Fulani Terror Jihadists in six years (2017-2023). In Nassarawa State, no fewer than 38 Christian residents of Takalafia and Gwanja communities in the Karu Local Government Area of the State were hacked to death by terror herdsmen who stormed the area on Thursday night (14th May 2023).

1,100 Christians Killed By Jihadists In 60 Days And 2,150 In First 160 Days Of 2023 (1st Jan-12th June)

Not less than 1,100 defenseless Christians were hacked to death by Nigerian Government backed Islamic Jihadists in the past 60 days or between 12th April and 12th June 2023; translating to daily average of 17 Christian deaths. The period under review also represents one of the bloodiest in anti Christian attacks in Nigeria. The breakdown of the 1,100 Christian deaths in 60 days (12th April-12th June 2023) shows that Plateau State is the worst hit with 350 Christian deaths, followed by Benue with 200 deaths, Kaduna 100 deaths, Nassarawa 62 deaths, Niger 50 deaths and ethnically and religiously related killings by the Police and Military personnel in the East 50 deaths. Others are Borno/Yobe with 40 Christian deaths, Taraba 40 deaths, Kebbi 20 deaths, South-West 20 deaths, South-East 20 deaths, Adamawa 10 deaths, South-South 10 deaths and FCT 10 Christian deaths. There are also 200 Christian deaths representing “dark figures of crimes” including over 80 Christian deaths omitted in places like Kaduna State, covering 1st January to 10th April 2023 and 10% (70 deaths) of the 700 abductees representing those abducted who are incapable of returning to their families alive. Also In two months gone by, not less than 700 Christians were abducted in Kaduna, Niger, Borno, Taraba, Yobe, Adamawa, Benue, Plateau, Kebbi, Nassarawa, Edo, Osun, Kwara, Kogi, FCT, Ondo, Delta, Enugu, Anambra and Abia States. In the 1,100 defenseless Christian deaths, Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen accounted for not less than 800 killings. We had in our mother Report of 10th April 2023,disclosed that 1,041 defenseless Christians were hacked to death in Nigeria in the first 100 days of 2023 or 1st Jan to 10th April 2023. In all, therefore, it has been investigated and found that a total of not less than 2,150 defenseless Christians have been slaughtered by non state actor/Nigerian Government backed Islamic Jihadists in the past 160 days or 1st Jan to 12th June 2023. Over 1,400 others were abducted; out of which 10% or 140 may be incapable of returning to their families alive. Kaduna State top the list of the abducted with at least 700, followed by Niger State with 300.

1000 Christian Communities Sacked By Jihadists And Government Security Forces Since 2016

Available statistics showed that Nigerian Government protected Jihadists and its Jihad enabler security forces have sacked 1000 Christian communities since 2016 and aided and abetted their takeover and occupation by the Jihadists; out of which, Benue State lost 400 Christian communities, Kaduna 245, Plateau 200, Taraba 100 and South-East 60. Christian communities have also been uprooted in Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Niger, Kogi, Nassarawa, Kebbi, Kastina, Edo, Delta, Anambra, Enugu, etc.

100 Churches Razed In 2 Months: 12th April-12th June 2023

Not less than 100 churches have been razed or burned down or destroyed by Islamic Jihadists in the past sixty days or between 12th April and 12th June 2023; out of which Plateau State lost not less than 28 churches. Several churches suffered similar Jihadist attacks in Southern Kaduna and other parts of the State including Chikun where 40 Christians were abducted in a Chikun church by Fulani Jihadists on 7th May 2023. Churches in Adamawa State also came under attack including abduction of two pastors in Yola and attacks on churches on 24th May 2023. Several churches and hundreds of Christian homes had come under devastating attacks in Benue, Taraba, Borno, Yobe, Katsina, Zamfara, Nassarawa and Kogi States; totaling over 100 church attacks or burnings or destructions  between 12th April and 12th June 2023.

20 Pastors Attacked Since April And 600 Synagogues/1000 Traditional Sanctuaries Since Jan 2021

Available statistics also showed that not less than 20 Christian pastors were abducted or murdered by marauding Nigerian Government protected Islamic Jihadists between 12th April and 12th June 2023. At least three pastors and two Catholic Priests were among those killed and over a dozen others abducted. It was also investigated and found that the personnel of the Nigerian Military, Police and DSS deployed in the South-East and South-South jointly accounted for burning down or destruction of not less than 600 Synagogues and 1000 Traditional Religious Sanctuaries particularly in Imo, Anambra and Abia States since Jan 2021. The burning down or destruction of the Synagogues and Traditional Sanctuaries had arisen from false security intelligence that “members of IPOB/ESN are religious members of Jewish Synagogues and Traditional Religions which provide them with charms and spiritual backups and as a result, all Synagogues and Traditional Sanctuaries are instruments of terrorism and their members Biafra terrorists”.   

Previous Statistics In Our Mother Report Of 10th April 2023

We had on Eastern Monday, 10th April 2023 released a Special Investigative Report and disclosed that “no fewer than 1,041 defenseless Christians were hacked to death by Nigeria’s Jihadists in the first 100 days of 2023 or 1st Jan to 10th April 2023 and over 700 others abducted”. The Report also disclosed that “5,191 defenseless Christians were hacked to death in 2021 and 3,800 others abducted by Nigeria’s Islamic Jihadists” and that “in Jan to Dec 2022, 5,068 defenseless Christians were hacked to death and over 3000 others abducted-with 10% or 300 permanently disappeared or incapable of returning to their families alive”. The Special Investigative Report also held that, “52, 250 Christians and 34,000 moderate Muslims or 85,250 faith believers have been killed by Nigerian Islamic Jihadists and their “Esprit de Jihad” in the Nigerian Government security establishments since July 2009”. The Special Report further found that 30, 250 Christians were hacked to death under Buhari between June 2015 and March 2023; 14 million Christians uprooted and five million forced into IDPs and refugee camps including over 2.5m in Benue State-with over 800 Christian communities sacked, 18,000 churches and 2,200 Christian schools attacked or burned down or destroyed.


New Statistics Arising From Our Latest Updates

Our latest updates have now shown that “not less than 1,100 Christians were slaughtered by the Jihadists in the past two months or a total of 2,150 since Jan 2023 or a period of 160 days-during which over 1400 others were abducted”. A total of 53,350 Christians had been killed in Nigeria since July 2009 and 31,350 under Buhari from June 2015-29th May 2023. Not less than 18, 100 churches and 2,200 Christian schools were burned down or destroyed in the past fourteen years or since July 2009 and under Buhari, Nasiru El-Rufai and others, 6,600 churches and 700 Christian schools were lost from June 2015-12th June 2023. Not less than 1000 Christian communities were sacked by Jihadists under Buhari, Nasiru El-Rufai and others between 2016 and June 2023 and under their security watch and directives since Jan 2021, not less than 600 Christian Synagogues and 1000 Traditional Religious Sanctuaries were destroyed or burned down by the drafted federal security forces in Old Eastern Nigeria or South-East and South-South Regions.

We Have Monitored And Exposed Persecution Of Christians And Minority Others Since 2010

Intersociety is globally known and respected for strongly advocating for end of religious radicalism through propagation of radical Islamism and fanatical Christianity in Nigeria since 2010 and has issued not less than twenty special reports or publications associated with them. Intersociety has also earned a name and international respectability as Nigeria’s leading anti Christian persecution and radical Islamism watchdog and was admitted as a member of the United States-based International Alliance against Genocide since 2020. We have been closely monitoring patterns and trends of anti Christian persecution since 2010 and killing of minority Muslims and moderate others by non state actor armed Islamists and Muslim dominated Nigerian security forces from 2015 to 2023. The patterns and trends of the state actor religious butcheries under our close watch include introduction of state radical Islamism policy by the former Government of Nigeria in 2016, introduction of Nigerian security forces dimension to anti Christian butcheries across the country such as pro Islamic internal security operations in Eastern Nigeria since 2016 involving ethnic and religious profiling associated with atrocious military operations in the East and the military protected invasion of Eastern Christian forests, bushes and farmlands by Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen since 2016. We have monitored and tracked massacre of Christians and burning down or destruction of their sacred places of worship, religious symbols, Christian schools and living houses and farmlands across the country. These are done or carried out using research, investigation, documentation and publications. We also generate statistics from local and international media, religious, community, security, research, intergovernmental, nongovernmental, human rights bodies, international parliamentary organizations or diplomatic institutions.

Vindicated By El-Rufai’s Pro State Jihadism Revelations; Seeks His Arrest And Trial At ICC

The International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law has fully earned the enviable and unrivalled position as Nigeria’s “Nostradamus”. This is to the extent that we have, again, been vindicated by recent revelations by Mallam Nasiru El-Rufai, immediate past Gov of Kaduna State. The former Kaduna civilian Gov had had a video/audio clip of his boastful “successful transformation of Nigeria into Islamic State by successful replication of full Islamic rule in Kaduna State since 2015 at the Federal level”-culminating into emergence of Muslim-Muslim Presidency of Nigeria. Intersociety had severally and consistently disclosed in its several reports that the Southern Kaduna anti Christian butcheries and those of Benue, Plateau, Nassarawa, Kogi, Niger, Taraba, Adamawa and South-West, South-East and the rest are carefully planned, systematically executed and well funded State Jihadism Project; modeled after the ‘Sudanese Janjaweed’ of the Omar Hassan el-Bashir’s atrocious era (1989-2019). Intersociety had also categorically stated that its findings showed that the killings had nothing whatsoever to do with the so called “Farmers-Herders Clashes”.

It must be remembered that Gov El-Rufai had in 2015 abolished the “Kaduna Charter of Equity” by scrapping ‘powering sharing between Muslims and Christians”. He not only scrapped positions reserved for Christians including seat of Deputy Gov of the State but also deployed state machineries including coercive instruments to unleash unchecked and ceaseless attacks and persecution of Christian leaders in the State. Not only that they were several times arrested and clamped into detention  but also a number of Christian traditional rulers were killed or dethroned or sent to prisons and bylaws establishing their thrones abolished and replaced with Fulani Emirate codes.  Figures of those killed or abducted in the State have also been consistently mangled or twisted to create a questionable database that looks as if “more Muslims are being killed or abducted than Christians in the State”.  

Joining Coalition Of Nigerians In UK In Calling For Arrest And Trial Of El-Rufai And Others At ICC

Intersociety hereby joins the Coalition of Nigerians living in the United Kingdom in calling on the leaders of the Southern Kaduna, the Middle-Belt and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to go after Mallam el-Rufai by ensuring that he does not go scot-free or walk the streets of Nigeria and west Democracies freely as an outlaw.  The UK Government as a State-Party to the Statute of the International Criminal Court of 1998 and domestication of same which also produces the current Chief Prosecutor of the Court should ensure that the likes of El-Rufai, Buhari, Buratai, Musa Daura, Arase, Alkali Baba and the rest of the served and the serving senior security officers  in the country from the ranks of military Lieutenant Colonels and Police CSPs since August 2015 are blocked from setting their feet on UK soil or arrested and charged for crimes against humanity and genocide or incitement to same, if they do set their feet on UK Soil. Where it is found that they have appointive or elective engagements such as academic board (Oxford) in the case of El-Rufai, such appointments or elections should be terminated.

Intersociety also wishes to unequivocally state that it is morally reprehensible for the UK Government to continue to play host and open its international doors to worst violators and abusers of human rights and promoters of genocide and genocidal incitements. The UK Government cannot probate and reprobate by globally parading itself as “a Democratic and Human Rights Respecter State” and at the same time found wanting as a country encouraging or harboring grisly and egregious human rights abuses and violations and their abusers or violators. This clarion call of ours on the UK Government is also extended to the Governments of United States, Canada, France, Germany, Portugal Netherlands, Switzerland, Ireland, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, Australia, Norway, Spain, Italy, rest of Europe and the United Nations Organization as they should avoid replicating the infamous roles of “the Three Musketeers (UK, France and Belgium)” in the Rwandan Genocide of April-July 1994.

This is the sequel to the deteriorating health condition of our leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU and the proposed ear surgery by Nigeria Government and DSS medical team. IPOB completely rejects any ill-concieved surgery on our leader, Mazi Nnamdi KANU, the leader of IPOB, who has been illegally and unconstitutionally detained in DSS  dungeon for 2 years without charge. We reiterate that he should be released to his personal physicians who will perform the prescribed ear surgery on him.  

We want to draw the attention of IPOB worldwide, all  lovers of freedom and lovers of Biafra on the dangerous plans to neutralize Mazi Nnamdi Kanu through ear surgery by the enemies on DSS medical team. 

It's obvious that DSS has intentions to eliminate our leader through this  ill-conceived ear surgery. That's why they refused to allow Mazi Nnamdi KANU access to his personal and trusted physicians. 

Therefore, we reject any DSS or Nigeria Government sponsored surgery on our leader while he is still being detained illegally in solitary confinement. 

It's true that our leader requires urgent ear surgery from the injury the Nigeria Agents inflicted on him when he was kidnapped and tortured in Kenya however, such surgery will not take place while he is still inside DSS dungeon. What will happen if he develops any medical complications during or after the surgery in the detention facilities? Mazi Nnamdi KANU must be unconditionally released as the courts ordered or released on medical grounds to attend to his health. 

If Nigerian DSS could not find a qualified ENT doctor to handle Buhari’s ear infections during his eight years in office, how come DSS suddenly have qualified ENT doctors in their team to carry out ear surgery on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu? The same way Buhari was a leader of a nation is the same way Mazi Nnamdi KANU is a leader of 75m people of Biafra Nation. IPOB is capable of taking our leader to any part of the world for the best medical services.

We, therefore, once again call on the Nigeria Government and DSS to release Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU. If anything untoward happens to him, they will dance to any tune IPOB will play for them. We warn them with their  cohorts who are showcasing some doctors as Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's doctors to cease and desist. 

We urge Biafrans to oppose the planned ear surgery on Mazi Nnamdi KANU as planned by Nigeria Government and DSS agents.

There are serious indications that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will not make it alive if he goes into any operation under the enemies supervision. Mazi Chinasa Nworu will be coming on the air by the weekend to speak on this serious subject and the risk associated with the enemy's planned ear surgery on our leader. 

Let the Nigeria Government and DSS release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to his personal physicians to handle the ear surgery. DSS, who were responsible for his ear injury through the brutal torture, can not be trusted to heal him by surgery on the same ear.  Moreso, DSS must not force or medically subdue our leader in order to perform any surgery on him because that will be a declaration of war on Biafrans. If they want to see, let them try such rubbish. Mazi Nnamdi KANU needs urgent surgery, and the only option acceptable to us IPOB worldwide is his unconditional release as ordered by the courts or release on medical grounds to his personal physicians for the said ear surgery. 

We call on IPOB and MNK legal teams both home and abroad to reject the Nigeria Government's proposed ear surgery on Mazi Nnamdi KANU. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s wife and his siblings must reject such an offer, too.  Mazi Nnamdi KANU is the leader of over 75 million indigenous people of Biafra, and his health is a national concern that must not be handled carelessly. DSS and those  parading doctors in Abuja should know that Mazi Nnamdi KANU is no longer owned by the KANU family. He is now the property of 75 million Biafran people.  

In summary, IPOB, Ndigbo, and Biafrans say NO EAR SURGERY on our leader, Mazi Nnamdi KANU, by the Nigeria Government, DSS, or any other groups' medical team while he is still being illegally detained inside DSS dungeon. Instead, we call for his release from illegal detention for his private ENT doctors to handle the ear surgery.

If we are law abiding country, the court order that acquitted Kanu should have been respected - Senator Shehu Sani

If we are law abiding country, the court order that acquitted Kanu should have been respected - Senator Shehu Sani 

June 9, 2023 | The Biafra Times

Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani has expressed concern about the continuous incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.

Senator Sani, who spoke on Thursday while featuring on a Channels Television program, stated that he had stayed in prison for a long time, and would for no reason support the Federal Government’s action of keeping the separatist despite a court order.

According to him, if the country was law-abiding, the order of the court acquitting Kanu should have been respected.

As a prisoner who has stayed so long in prison, there is no way a person like me will support an open breach of the Constitution and a violation of fundamental human rights.

A court has given an order for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, and if we are a law-abiding country and committed to the rule of law, we should respect the law.

One of the problems we have in Nigeria today is the separatist agitation in the South Eastern part of Nigeria. If you go to the background of all those separatists, you will see that there was a time in their history when they believed in the indivisibility of the country. Something must have happened along the way,” he said
