June 14, 2021 | The Biafra Times


PRESS RELEASE FROM THE JOINT TRAINING OF BIAFRA & ODUDUWA VOLUNTEER FORCE

This is to put the Nigeria Government and her security agencies in Nigeria on notice that Biafra and Oduduwa has further strengthened their bond as one people, following the joint training of personnel from both sides. These joint volunteer force will secure the territories of Southern Nigeria against 'foreign Fulanis terrorists and any unwarranted aggression from any external force. 

Oduduwa and Biafra Volunteer Force demand immediate end to the ongoing  genocide against the people of Biafra and immediate demilitarisation of Biafraland as we are now ready to defend our territories against aggression. The killing and abduction in Biafra and Oduduwa land must stop immediately. 

We reiterate that an attack on Oduduwa land is an attack on Biafra and an attack on Biafra is an attack on Oduduwa. This is the bond the Fulanis tried for many years to destroy but today, the new generation of Oduduwa and Biafra have risen to say no to divide and rule. We are on the threshold of history because we are stronger together.  Today we have trained together, dined together and drank together. Should duty call for it, we shall die together in defense of the entire South. We shall defend our land together, this is historic day for both nations. 

Signed 

Biafra and Oduduwa Volunteer Force for the liberation of Southern Nigeria.

The Unplanned War Ongoing In Ohafia, Okon, Amaekpu, Akanu, Okagwe Marked For Attack


Ohafia Military Invasion

There is an ongoing heavy gun battle between soldiers of 14 Brigades, Army Headquarters, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s Barracks, Ohafia, and unknown gunmen in Ohafia Local Government Area of Abia State OHAFIA-TV News can reliably report.

According to our investigation on the development, our anonymous source said that the ugly incident took a bad turn when Nigeria Soldiers stormed Amangwu to arrest a man alleged to be a Native Doctor (Ngworo) that is friendly with the gunmen, unfortunately, the soldiers lost a man during an exchange with the Native Doctor’s bodyguards who put in a fierce gun battle, an action that attracted the wrought of the army.

Infuriated by the loss, the soldiers returned to their barracks, regrouped and descended on the community with carnage as never seen before in the peaceful communities of Ohafia.

Our source said that the return of the soldiers with intent to destroy caused further resistance from the Unknown Gunmen who had also regrouped to face the soldiers in an open battle that lasted from about 11:00 pm of Friday till around 5:00 am of Saturday the 12th of June, 2021 at which point the UGM returned to the bush while the soldiers paraded the community, unleashing mayhem on Civilians.

As at the time of filing this report, an unconfirmed report says that six soldiers and a member of the Unknown Gunmen have been reportedly killed in the melee.

Further information alleged that the army was given strict instruction to destabilize Ohafia as it was gradually becoming a stronghold of ESN, haven chased herdsmen away from all the forests in Ohafia, and hosting Biafra Flag on 30th May Heroes Day Celebration, an action the Nigeria government see as a threat that must be crushed.

We learned that the Army gave out instruction that the four stronghold communities of Ohafia must be destabilized to give a scare to the rest of the 26 Clans and the marked communities for attack and destruction by the Soldiers included Okon-Aku (The closest Neighbors to Amangwu), Amaekpu, Okagwe, and Akanu Ohafia respectively. We gathered that Amangwu was not on the list of communities marked for the attack, and wonder why the Nigeria Soldiers have descended on a peaceful community.

The villagers are calling on Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, Senate Chief Whip and other, State and National Assembly members to come to their aides.

A source who spoke on the condition of anonymity stated that many male youths in the community who feared being possibly whisked away by soldiers and other security agents have left their homes in the village for another place of safety in the state. He stated that the soldiers were going from house to house especially at Amangwu to arrest presumed ESN members after Unknown gunmen had dealt them a blow.

We gathered that few days back, the UGM attacked a military patrol team along Elu/Ebem road, sending the soldiers into panic as some of them escaped without their guns. The Barracks at Ebem has recently been under constant lock as businesses around the barracks has stopped forthwith. But in their usual fashion, the soldiers always have a way of taking their pound of flesh on the civilian populace whenever they loss a fight.

“We have suffered all manner of intimidation from soldiers. Some of our kinsmen have relocated to Uzuakoli, Umuahia, Aba and anywhere they think that is safer for them. We are in the village but our right to movement is determined by soldiers.

“Marriage ceremonies billed to take place any time soon have been shifted indefinitely. We learned that at Elu, soldiers went to the market and started pursuing people.

“A lot of houses have been burnt in Amangwu Ohafia community. They said that members of ESN were using the houses as their hideout; that I can’t validate. You need to call anyone from Amangwu to validate such claims. But what I can tell you right now is that Ohafia is on fire,” said the source.

An indigene of Amangwu Ohafia who spoke from his hideout confirmed the invasion of his community by soldiers of 14 Brigade, Ohafia with the claim that members of UGM that killed their personnel were ESN and are hiding in the Amangwu community.

We also confirmed reinforcement of soldiers and arms to the Ohafia Barracks for the purposes of carrying out this intimidation on Ohafians.

Meanwhile, we were reliably informed that the Nigeria Army has confirmed that the UGM’s location is in the EREI as they also parade Ohafia communities, inviting the soldiers to meet them in the bushes for a handshake while the soldiers preferred dealing with civilians in their homes. It is unclear whether war has been declared on Ohafia Clan by the Nigerian Government.

Army spokesman, Capt Dauda Illiya could not take calls placed to his mobile line, while the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Geoffrey Ogbonna could not confirm the report.

According to Ogbonna, he is yet to be informed of such development in Ohafia LGA.

CLAIMS BY IMO CP THAT IPOB KILLED 128 SECURITY PERSONNEL, MALICIOUS FALSEHOOD TO BLACKMAIL US - IPOB

 


IPOB PRESS RELEASE | The Biafra Times

June 10, 2021


The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the  fallacious and fabricated statements credited to the Commander, 34 Field Artillery Brigade Obinze,  Gen. Raymond Utasaha, and Police Commissioner Imo State, Alhaji Abudu Yaro, that IPOB killed 128 security personnel in Imo State.

The above statement is not only fabricated but ridiculous and untenable. How could IPOB that is not armed be able to kill as many as 128 security personnel in one state? What an illogical and ridiculous claim!

 This is nothing but one of the antics of our oppressors to tarnish our global reputation and whip up public sympathy. They also want to use it as a smoke screen to justify their further crackdown on IPOB and its members. .

We therefore wish to declare for the records that IPOB did not kill any security personnel in Imo or any state for that matter. IPOB since inception, has remained a peaceful movement with the sole mandate of restoring Biafra. We have not changed our non-violent philosophy for the restoration of Biafra. If for any reason we need to change our peaceful approach, we shall make same public but for now we have not gone into arms struggle, and don't intend to.

It will be necessary again to clarify that IPOB is not, and should not be taken for 'Unknown gunmen' that have been reportedly having issues with security agencies in parts of the country especially the defunct Eastern Nigeria. IPOB should not be held responsible for the activities of a group not commissioned by us.

Importantly, the Eastern Security Network ESN set up in December 2020 has no relationship whatsoever with the unknown gunmen. ESN was a child of circumstance established to resist the Killer herdsmen rampaging our communities. ESN operatives are in the forests where they are keeping their appointments with those invading our ancestral land. 

We therefore wish to tell the world that neither IPOB nor ESN is involved in any attack against security personnel in Imo or any part of the country. The Nigerian Army and other security agencies are only desperately looking for how to incriminate IPOB and ESN to justify their continued extra-judicial killings of our members.

The world should prevail on the Nigeria security agencies to stop the ongoing house to house abductions of innocent youths in Biafra land who they label unknown gunmen and later kill without trial. This atrocity must stop!

NIGERIA SECURITY AGENTS ABDUCTING AND SECRETLY KILLING INNOCENT IGBO YOUTHS AND TAGGING THEM UNKNOWN GUNMEN - IPOB

 



IPOB PRESS RELEASE  | The Biafra Times

June 9, 2021


The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our indomitable leader ,Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wishes to place the world on notice, of the ongoing abductions and secret killings of Biafrans especially Igbo youths by the Nigeria security agents, and tagging them unknown gunmen. These compromised and Fulani-controlled security operatives move from house to house and abduct Igbo youths, whisk them away to their slaughter houses and later dump their corpses at mortuaries as unknown gunmen.

It is unfortunate that DCP Abba Kyari and co are killing cult members and forcing them to answer ESN and unknown gunmen, the man they are parading as ESN is not a ESN member and can never be, two months ago the two groups of cultists fought and killed each other and burnt two members to ashes but unfortunately one of them was caught at Owerri by Abba Kyari and his group and they tagged him ESN and unknown gunmen, what is absolutely wrong with Nigeria police and army in this country? 

Because of this young man they were forced by police to answer ESN and unknown gunmen to deceive the gullible Nigerians who are not connected to information and attracted praises from the public.These terrorists in military and police uniforms are raiding communities and set people's houses ablaze claiming they are attacking ESN camps and hideouts. These two face security operatives in Nigeria are perpetrating evil and attacking individual houses in the name of fighting IPOB, ESN and unknown gunmen in Mbieri Mbaitoli LGA Imo State. 

Nigerian security agencies led by DCP Abba Kyari have invaded three communities in Mbaitoli LGA in Imo State and burnt properties worth millions of Naira. We’re calling on Human Right organizations across the globe and other relevant stakeholders in the world to take record of what Nigerian army and police are doing in so many peaceful communities in Imo State because nobody should blame us by Time we start getting them down which is not far from now. 

We have severally said that ESN stays in the forests where they are keeping their appointments with terrorists and killer herdsmen. Anyone looking for them should simply go to the forests and encounter them. Nigeria security agents should go to the bushes and face ESN they don't operate on the streets or cities, they must understand that we defeated Miyetti Allah and its terrorists herdsmen in our territory and now they disguised as Nigeria army and police in uniforms attacking our people and we will defeat them the way we defeated Miyetti Allah in no distance future. 

How will the Nigeria security agents who cannot withstand bandits in the North be zealous in killing innocent Biafrans of Igbo extraction? These atrocities have been going on for too long but we won't tolerate it anymore.

We therefore, warn perpetrators of these evil agenda  to retrace their steps immediately or brace up for stiff resistance.

This is a secret genocide orchestrate by the Fulani-controlled federal government to depopulate Ndigbo before the coming of Biafra.

Despite the daily slaughter of security agents mainly of Southern origin in the North by bandits and terrorists, the Nigeria military or police has never embarked on mass arrest and secret killing of youths and residents of  the crime scene. It's unfortunate that the treacherous political class has kept mute over this atrocity. But IPOB cannot keep quiet.

The intention of the masterminds of this crime against humanity is to weaken the South East, and pave the way for its long-planned invasion by jihadists. But they will not succeed. 

We promise them hell for this cowardly act of victimizing innocent Igbo youths for the activities of unknown gunmen. How many times have youths in Zamfara or Katsina or Kaduna been arrested and killed for the activities of bandits? Why is the Fulani controlled federal government treating the Igbo as slaves and the whole world is watching helplessly?

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS DECLARED WAR AGAINST BIAFRANS - IPOB

 



IPOB PRESS RELEASE 

May 20, 2021 | The Biafra Times


The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been drawn to the recent security meeting held in Aso Rock  by the Service Chiefs and the impostor parading himself as  President Muhammadu Buhari.

Far-reaching but undisclosed decisions were reached at the meeting on how to quell insecurity in the Eastern region.

It's on record that nobody from South East was present or invited at the meeting where such critical decisions were taken. Despite the mounting public outcry trailing the decision of the Fulani controlled federal government to commence another military operation in the Eastern region as approved at the meeting with shoot-on-sight order against Igbo youths and Biafra agitators, the security agencies are bent on carrying out the order.

Just two days ago, the Inspector General of Police while launching a special Police Operation for South East called Operation Restore Peace, in Enugu confirmed the peoples fears when he asked police personnel not to wait for any other special order before they start killing protesters and anyone confronting them in the zone. He assured them of federal protection against human rights allegations or prosecutions, urging them to take the war to the people in their homes.

He specifically directed them to ensure they eliminate anybody suspected to be a Biafran agitator or IPOB member, and not to bother bringing them to Police stations anymore.

Our intelligence unit has equally uncovered another secret meeting where the federal government of Nigeria authorized the security Chiefs to crush IPOB members, Biafra agitators and youths in the Eastern region, assuring them of adequate protection against any prosecution by human rights organisations.

Our intelligence further revealed that part of their decision at the meeting was to use use those Boko Haram members they recruited into the Nigeria military and police to eliminate anybody they see on the street as being currently witnessed in Imo State. The military invaded students hostel in Owerri shooting sporadically and directly at people. 

We are equally aware that the Fulani-controlled Federal Government of Nigeria had ordered another military operation  codenamed " Operation Restore Peace" in the South East and South South. This is only but another "Operation Massacre Biafrans" in disguise.

There are so many security challenges in the North where the rampaging Boko Haram terrorists and bandits have siezed the control of many communities and Local Government Areas, yet there is no shoot-on-sight order declared by the double-faced Buhari-led federal government. South East and South South are not in war with anybody but Fulani terrorists supported by Nigeria government brought war in our land, killing innocent people while pointing accusing fingers at IPOB members and ESN operatives. 

The action of the federal government is nothing but a declaration of war against Biafrans. The Buhari-led administration and his Service Chief have no moral justification to take a military action against South East without a South Eastern in attendance at the meeting where such decision was purportedly taken. This, and of course the appointment of Service Chiefs were in clear violation of the principles of Federal Character enshrined in the zoo's constitution.

Every indigenous community in Biafraland must be careful and prepared because they have brought the war in our door step. They have already started burning people's houses and killing them. But our God shall fight for us and we will defeat them. The same way they could not crush us during the three-year Biafra war, they won't be able to prevail even now.

We also want to put the world on notice that Buhari and his Service Chiefs should be held accountable for any genocide or war in Eastern Nigeria. They brought the war to our door steps and we have no option but to defend our ancestral land. And that we must do irrespective of the cost!

INTIMIDATION OF NEWSPAPER VENDORS, JOURNALISTS BY NIGERIA SECURITY OPERATIVES IN IMO STATE, BARBARIC - IPOB



IPOB PRESS RELEASE 

May 18, 2021| The Biafra Times


We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by our prophet and liberator, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, condemn in very strong terms, the incessant arrest and humiliation of newspaper vendors as well as the harassment of journalists by the Nigeria security operatives for writing or distributing Biafra, IPOB or ESN-related news materials. This is wickedness and a calculated attempt to suppress the press.

It's a global embarrassment that the Nigeria security agents will be hunting for newspaper vendors and journalists in Imo State and other Biafran cities for committing no crime other than writing or distributing news contents that affect Biafra, IPOB or ESN. How many times have the security agents harrased any journalist or newspaper vendor in the North for writing about Boko Haram or Fulani bandits? 

The same hypocritical Nigeria security agents allow viral videos and audios from Boko Haram and other terrorists to circulate in the media but when IPOB Spokesman was featured on Channels Television, the federal government came on with N5 million fine against the station. Islamic cleric Sheikh Gunmi keeps meeting with terrorists and has turned into advocacy for them through the media, yet journalist or newspaper vendor has been questioned over such reports.

The Fulani-controlled Nigeria security agencies cannot suppress Biafra no matter how hard they try. Not even their draconian policies and ant-press moves can stop their atrocities and unprovoked genocidal attacks in Biafra land from being reported. The world must read our story!

We therefore, challenge the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Nigeria Guild of Editors, Newspaper Publishers , civil society groups and democracy lovers to take up the fight. It's not about Biafra, it's all about free press and democracy. After all, the victims are not IPOB members but ordinary newspaper vendors and innocent journalists.

The ultimate goal of the Fulani controlled federal government of Nigeria is to intimidate journalists into submission so they will be too afraid to report the extra-judicial killings and other crimes against humanity perpetrated by the security agents against Biafrans. We know their game plan: this is only a prelude so that when eventually they begin their proposed jihad in the Eastern region, no journalists and newspaper vendor will be courageous enough to report or circulate the story.

But they must not be allowed to succeed or get away with this tyranny. The UN, US, EU, UK and lovers of democracy all over the world should ask Nigeria Government why it's clamping down on free press.
