UK Lawmakers, Diplomats, Religious Leaders & Activists As ‘IPOB Lobbyists’: Jihad Enablers Are Panicking In Aso Rock



Tuesday, 31st August 2021 | The Biafra Times

For the second time in two years or since 2020, the persons of the trios of Mallam Garba Shehu, an intolerant member of the respected Muslim faith, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, another intolerant member of the respected Muslim faith and Femi Adesina, a member of Christian faith but strongly suspected jihad enabler, have come out in indefensible defense of the egregious, grisly, genocidal and state conspiratorial and protected attacks on innocent and defenseless Christians and their centers of worship and learning across Nigeria by Islamic jihadists and their ‘esprit de jihad’ in the Nigerian security forces especially in the Christian held areas of North-Central, Northeast and Southern Kaduna since 2009 and some parts of Southeast, South-south and Southwest since 2016. The trios of the country’s Presidential officials also despicably and condemnably labeled the international defense of same as “IPOB sponsored” or their international defenders as “int’l IPOB lobbyists”.

It must be recalled that over 4,100 Christians have been hacked to death by Jihadists in the past eight months or Jan to August 2021 with not less than fifteen Christian priests or pastors killed or abducted and over 300 churches attacked and in August alone, not less than 400 Christians were killed. Since 2009, a period of twelve years, over 43,000 Christians and some 29,000 moderate Muslims have also been hacked to death by Jihadists and their ‘esprit de jihad’ in the country’s security forces. Over 17,500 churches and 2000 Christian schools have been lost, 30m Christians mostly in the North terrified, 10m uprooted, 6m forced to flee to escape being hacked to death by Jihadists and 4m displaced as ‘Christian IDPs’ with Benue State alone hosting 1.5m. Over 23,000 Christians have also been disappeared to the point of no return and hundreds of thousands of died indirectly owing to persecution related hash conditions including Govern neglects.

Mallam Garba Shehu had in his latest statement, also credited to the person of ‘President Muhammad Buhari’, described ‘IPOB’ as “not fighting for Christians in the Southeast” and labeled international voices against persecution of Christians across Nigeria as “international IPOB Lobbyists”. His comment on Sunday, 30th August 2021 was about seven days after Minister Lai Mohammed issued a statement claiming that “his recent foreign trip on international media engagement was useful” and that he used same to “debunk fake news on persecution of Christians in Nigeria”. Minister Lai Mohammed’s statement also coincided with killing of over 60 Christians by Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen and Jihadist Fulani Bandits in Plateau, Benue and Kaduna States. In one of their Kaduna attacks, the Nigerian Defense Academy was targeted, leading to killing scores of Christian military officers. Till date the Nigerian Government has neither sacked any senior military officer including the Commandant of the Academy nor apprehended any of the jihadist Fulani culprits. It must be recalled that Mallam Garba Shehu had sometime in 2020 fabricated and falsely alleged that “the groups and persons behind international voices and concerns on persecution of Christians in Nigeria are internationally sponsored by IPOB” and as internationally published by the US based Christian Post, several international groups and persons concerned reacted angrily and strongly condemned the Nigerian Government. As if that was not enough, Mallam Garba Shehu on Sunday, 30th August 2021 resorted to same blackmails and lies as he did in 2020.

Consequently, the referenced unguarded utterances of Mallam Garba Shehu and Minister Lai Mohammed are clear indication that ‘Jihad enablers in Aso Rock are shivering and panicking’. This is on account of their failed lies, blackmails and fabrications that have refused to fly at international borders or scenes. The Nigerian Government must also have been rattled by the fact ‘its international lies and fabrications have failed woefully at diplomatic circles and international scenes despite huge amount of borrowed resources committed towards promoting and sustaining. Such huge waste of public funds has been the case in key international parliaments, intergovernmental, justice and diplomatic quarters and political corridors of power where they are wasted and lavished on lobbying, ‘tipping’, pressure groups and image laundering by the Government including hundreds of its registered or linked NGOs. Yet despite such huge discreet wastage of the country’s borrowed funds and public resources, accompanied by presidential tsetse fly lies and fabrications, the world has not only refused to be misled, misinformed and confused but also voices of concern against killing of Christians and burning or destruction of their churches and schools in Nigeria or any part thereof are increasing with high speed across the world.

Apart from old coalition voices being sustained across the world and new ones emerging and rising strongly in defense of persecuted Christians and some moderate Muslims and their untracked, uninvestigated and untried persecutors across the country, the Nigerian Government’s latest panicky reactions must have specifically been caused by the 16th August 2021 international letter to UK Minister for Africa, James Duddridge, MP by prominent UK Lawmakers and key global religious leaders and activists on “unending religious violence (killing of Christians and some moderate Muslims) in Nigeria-a key ally of UK”. The international letter of religious concerns was delivered to the Hon UK Minister for Africa, who is also a respected Member of the UK Lower House or House of Commons in which the powerful letter sought the UK Government’s acknowledgement of the scale of ethno-religious violence in Nigeria and strongly urge the Nigerian Government to: Hold those responsible to account; Ensure that security and stability are provided for all communities in the north and Middle Belt, as well as the Yoruba and Igbo people in the south west and south east, together with the help and protection they urgently need.                                                                                                                                                                

The powerful Letter had The Baroness Caroline Cox of Queensbury; a long serving member of the UK House of Lords, an internationally respected person and  Founder and President, Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART) as the chief convener and was co-signed by Jim Shannon MP, Chair, APPG for International Freedom of Religion or Belief, The Lord David Alton of Liverpool, Dr. Lisa Cameron MP, Lord Carey of Clifton, Former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Lisa Cameron MP, Lord Carey of Clifton, Former Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace the Most Reverend Henry Ndukuba, Primate of All Nigerian Anglican Communion and Bishop Metropolitan, The Most Rev. Dr. B.A. Kwashi, Bishop of The Anglican Diocese of Jos, Nigeria, Reverend Canon Hassan John, Provincial Office, Church of Nigeria, John Eibner, International President, Christian Solidarity International (CSI) , Ayo Adedoyin, International Organization for Peace-building and Social Justice (PSJ-UK), Melvyn Thomas CMG, Founder and President, Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Dr Khataza Gondwe and Ben Rogers, top leaders of Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Rt. Reverend Andrew Watson, Anglican Bishop of Guildford, UK and Emeka Umeagbalasi (M.Sc.), Board Chairman, International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law, Nigeria.

It saddens our heart therefore that instead of the Nigerian Government rethinking and reversing its path of religious infamy and perdition, it still resorted to diminishing the genocidal issue and covering same up and blackmailing the respected world leaders as “international IPOB lobbyists”. Intersociety as a leading investigator and researcher on religious violence and its state actor enablers in Nigeria since 2010 had been calling on the present Nigerian Government since 2015 to govern the country pluralistically and cohesively including provision of security and safety and protection of the citizens’ rights irrespective of their faith, tribe or ethnicity, age, class, gender or creed. On the contrary, the Nigerian Government has been unable and unwilling to have these done or achieved owing to its deliberate and systematic composition of its Government and security forces along radical Muslim lines and its unrepentant contempt for socio-political pluralism and religious tolerance. This is also to the extent that today, 80% of the country’s security energies and resources are channeled towards suppression of members of the Igbo Ethnic Nationality and their Judeo-Christian-cum-traditional religion while jihadists especially Jihadist Fulani Herdsmen and Jihadist Fulani Bandits are roundly protected by the State to commit or perpetrate mass atrocities on religious grounds. The Government of Nigeria has also discreetly turned the country into safe havens for Jihadists within and outside Africa and formulated an impunity and repeat-offense policy of ‘massacre-and-be-forgiven’ for BH, ISWAP and Ansaru Jihadists.

The leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) understand the concern being expressed by the global IPOB family on the suspension of the weekly Sit-At-Home earlier announced by the IPOB Head of Directorate of State of the Indigenous people of Biafra. We know that our people embraced this civil action wholeheartedly and without any compulsion. 

The leadership sincerely appreciate the innate desire of Biafrans to sacrifice their time, resources and energy in ensuring that our leader Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is released unconditionally from the illegal custody of the Nigerian State who criminally renditioned him from Kenya  to Nigeria.

The suspension of the Sit-At-Home by the IPOB Head of Directorate was as a result of a direct order from the leader of this great movement Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. 

There is no gain saying the fact that one of the major fundamental guiding principle of IPOB is Command and Control. This simply means that all command from the Supreme leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) will be obeyed and implemented to the latter by the Directorate of State of the Indigenous people of Biafra. Bearing in mind therefore that this principle has enabled this movement to surpass even the exceptions of both Biafrans and Non Biafrans alike, the leadership wish to encourage Biafran to focus on the most pressing issue  confronting this great family presently which is ensuring the safety of our leader while still in the illegal custody of the DSS and to secure his unconditional release from detention. 

 In accordance with the directive from our leader, our Sit-At-Home will in the mean time be observed on the date  of our leaders Court appearances.

The lPOB leadership urge Biafrans worldwide to take note of the next court appearance of our leader which is the 21st of October 2021. If however we have any reason or directive from the IPOB highest command that require us to reactivate the suspended Weekly Sit-At-Home, the leadership will not hesitate to lift the suspension and continue with the  civil action.

The leadership  once more appreciate all Biafrans and our friends and sympathizers who faithfully observed the Monday August 9 Sit-At-Home which was a huge success throughout Biafra land. May God continue to bless and uphold all those committed to our struggle.

We consider Biafra  restoration as a sacrosanct call to duty above all else. Any other information regarding Sit-At-Home in Biafraland not emanating from IPOB through our main channels of information dissemination should be disregarded. 

The Nigeria Government should heed now to the voice of reason coming from within Nigeria and from outside the shores of Nigeria to unconditionally free our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and announce a date for Biafra referendum or plebiscite where our people will choose where they wish to belong before it is too late.

The attention of the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our indefatigable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the treacherous and abominable activities of some evil traditional rulers and President Generals in Biafran land who report their youths to the Fulani-controlled Nigerian soldiers to kill them. We have got reports  of traditional rulers and President Generals who terrorise youths in their community by tagging them IPOB members and ESN operatives. The only crime of the youths is standing up for their rights and resisting the sale of community land to Fulani herdsmen.

It's an abomination for a traditional ruler in Biafra land to report youths in his community to terror-friendly Nigeria Army just because he feels the youths are standing in his way to sell the community land to the Fulani herders. We therefore warn all such treacherous monarchs to retrace their steps or brace up for the consequences of their evil action.

We want to sound it clear that henceforth, any traditional ruler that reports his subjects to the Nigeria Army or Navy to torture them for opposing their plans to sell community land to Fulani herdsmen, shall get ready to answer to our ancestors. Such evil traitors are not worthy to live how much more occupy the ezeship stool in Biafraland. 

On this note, we demand the unconditional release of all the youths arrested by the Navy at Atani and other communites in Ogbaru, Anambra State. If you evil monarchs doubt our resolve to deal with you, fail to release those arrested by naval officers in the affected communites within seven days. If after seven days the arrested youths are not released, the treacherous traditional rulers and President Generals who masterminded their ordeals should prepare to reap the fruit of their treachery!

Any treacherous traditional ruler and President Generals found to be  selling our ancestral land to the Fulani Herdsmen, who are terrorist jihadists from the Futa Jaleon shall be held responsible for whatever consequences that will emanate from such action.

Secession threats: ‘National Assembly must pave way for needed changes’ – Malumfashi


August 9, 2021 | The Biafra Times

By Hafsat Abdulhamid

A lecturer with the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), Bauchi, Professor Mansur Usman Malumfashi, has called on the National Assembly to urgently provide the constitutional platform that will accommodate changes in Nigeria, even as he declared that the country’s foundation is shaky.

Malumfashi, who is with the Faculty of Education, ATBU, stated these in an interview with journalists in Bauchi while reacting to secession threats in part of the country, submitted that the state of the nation was not only alarming but also unfortunate.

He said that as of today, every geopolitical zone in the country was experiencing one form of challenge or the other, adding members of the National Assembly were required to bring about the changes being demanded by the zones.

“To be very candid, the state of the nation is really alarming and unfortunate. A group in the South West is calling for Oduduwa Republic and others in the South East are also calling for their own Biafra.

“So you find out that almost every zone of the country is facing one challenge or another in the sense that almost every sector of our national life is faced by one challenge or another.

“All the zones in the country, look at them, North East, Boko Haram, North West is kidnapping and banditry, North central is farmers-herders crises, South South the militants and the vandalisation of pipelines and so on and so forth.

“You find the issue of insecurity, you find the issue of unemployment, you find the issue of inflation, you find the issue of social explosion. What I mean by social explosion is that you find youth restiveness, youth gangsterism and so on and so forth,” the don said.

He said the National Assembly had great roles to play in the current agitations for restructuring, declaring that the legislature were empowered to bring the change the people wanted.

“Constitutionally they are the people required to bring about the changes requested by sections of the country.

“You cannot just jump out and say you want a country or self determination or we want to restructure the country,” he said.

According to him, the current reality in Nigeria called for a sober reflection, submitting that there was the need to sit down and look at things as they were in the country objectively.

“Really, the situation calls for sober reflection of the very foundation of the state, I mean the Nigeria nation. We really need to sit down and look at things from an objective perspective because right now the foundation of the country is shaky and we are appealing to people in governance to look at the issue more seriously,” Malumfashi submitted.

Speaking on the relationship between the National Assembly and the executive, the professor noted that though there is currently

a harmonious relationship between the two arms of government, such should, however, be for the benefit of Nigerians and not to short-changed them.

According to him, “the National Assembly or Parliament must work together for the general good of the country. We have had situations where members of the National Assembly would be involved in padding the budget for whatever reasons and at the end of the day whatever is padded is not meant for the people.

“So a good working relationship would be for the benefit of Nigerians and I think they are not doing badly but we really need to put them on their toes so that they will do more because the National Assembly can do better.”

10/08/2021 | 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 shameful statement and claims by one Sako Ekome, a self-acclaimed President of Ambazonia, that he was not consulted before the Memorandum of Understanding between Biafra and Ambazonia was signed.

We therefore, wish to inform him that Biafra does not recognize traitors and selfish fellows like him. He is too inconsequential and unreliable to be consulted or involved in any deal between Biafra and Ambazonia. We don't recognize him because he is not working for the people of Ambazonia. He has never had their mandate. We know his sponsors and whose interests he protects.

The only true Ambazonian Leader recognised by Biafra and our leader is Dr Cho Ayaba. Dr Cho Ayaba and Co have been busy fighting for the liberation of their people and fighting the  terrorist leaders  in French Cameroon led  by Paul Biya. But instead of supporting the sacrificial, patriotic and genuine efforts of Dr. Cho Ayaba to liberate Ambazonians from the Camarounian bondage, treacherous Sako Ekome has been hobnobbing with murderous Biya-led government of Cameroun to undermine and betray his people.

Sako Ekome should stop seeking attention, he has not shown any commitment to prove he and his co-travellers are for the good people of Ambazonia. Hence, Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB movement cannot have any dealing or consultations with him. We are wise and literate enough to know our friends and allies. We have no time for traitors. 

So, we hope that Sako Ekome is now better educated on why he was not consulted and could not have been consulted during the signing of the MOU agreement between Biafra and Ambazonia against our common enemies. This Sako Ekome is an unstable character. Has he forgotten so quickly what he did when he met our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu?

Ghost Town In Biafra, A Trial Referendum?

Ghost Town In Biafra, A Trial Referendum?

August 7, 2021

By David Umahi | Biafra Writers 

A non-violent, freedom movement in Nigeria; the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, fronting the liberation of the Biafran people seems to have upped its stride to realising a sovereign state. 

IPOB said it would stage a passive protest, tagged 'ghost town'. That is, holding aloof from every form of social and economic activities until their demands are met. 

Could this be a litmus test to their sought-after referendum? 

This piece is a summation of the view of many Biafrans that discussed the recent declaration of “Ghost Town” by the Indigenous People of Biafra.

The Directorate of State of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, had given a deadline to the federal government of Nigeria towards the release of its detained leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

On Thursday, July 29, 2021, Chika Edoziem, Head of IPOB's Directorate of State issued an ultimatum that, "Nigeria failing to release Kanu on or before August 8 would be faced with a weekly 'ghost town' action every Monday".

In that case, ghost town means an out and out desertion of roads, streets; including abstinence from socio-economic, and political activities that on such a day, Biafrans will desert the streets, which would completely cripple every economic, and social functions.

Edoziem was unapologetic in the declaration: “The Directorate of the Indigenous People of Biafra, demand herewith an unconditional release of our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on or before the 8th of August, 2021, failing which we shall commence a weekly lockdown of Biafra land starting on Monday 9th of August.”

“For the avoidance of doubt’ he continued, ‘the total lockdown of Biafra land will take place every Monday until our leader is released unconditionally.

“We are now into freedom struggle proper and everybody must understand that before the arrest of our leader, he raised the dragon flag, which was never brought down even at this moment. You know what that means.”

It is pertinent to note that Nnamdi Kanu's abduction, which appeared conspiratorial, was effectuated in Kenya by the country’s authorities, then rendered to Nigeria. It was a grave international crime known as "extraordinary rendition," and Nigeria has been berated globally for its action, called out as a display of international "gangsterism" (sic).

It is very clear; Nigerian government, being dangled by streaks of criticism by the people, has become confused, and crippled to front the trial of the Biafran leader. For instance, on June 29, he was brought to court hooded, and without prior notification to his lawyers that he was to be in court - after which the case was adjourned to July 26.

In the same light, Nigeria's Department of Security Services (DSS), on the latter date, failed to bring the accused [Kanu] to court, claiming they had logistics problems. As a result, the case suffered another adjournment until October 21, 2021.

It was a development the Biafrans were not ready to accept. It showed in the declaration of Edoziem: “It is completely unacceptable to IPOB to allow our leader remain in the hands of the enemy up to October, 2021.” For this reason, "ghost town in Biafra" was activated.

Meanwhile, in the spirit of camaraderie and solidarity, IPOB's counterpart - Ambazonia - in Central African Cameroon has declared full support for the “ghost town” in the Eastern region of Nigeria. The Ambazonians are a people in the South-western tip of Cameroon that has also been in a quest to exit from Republic of Cameroon. They share common boundary with Biafra, and had been seeking to severe ties with Cameroon, which it joined six decades ago.  The leadership entered into alliance with the Biafran leadership in April this year.

The leader of Ambazonia, Ayaba, made his declaration of support less than 24 hours after the Biafran declaration. His words: “The people of Ambazonia have declared their unalloyed support for the planned weekly lock down in Biafra code named 'ghost town'”.

Many observers believe Ambazonia's support would worsen the situation for Nigeria as it said their land borders would remain closed. The people of Ambazonia have had records of successful sit-in (ghost town) protests which completely crippled economic activities in Cameroon.

Apart from the effects, believers in one-Nigeria think “Ghost Town Biafra” pose for the countries unity and the economy of Biafra, many Biafran activists think they were not seeing well. The Biafrans wonder why those they call the one-Nigerianists were not seeing Biafran referendum in the Ghost Town declaration.

Chidi Emeka, a Biafran who resides at Ngbuka Onitsha area has put up his view, that:, “Nigerian leadership of this current dispensation is not wise at all. They continue to follow this issue to their own detriment. Don’t they know that they giving referendum indirectly?”

He claims as Biafrans desert the streets, they world would be left in no doubt that Biafrans want out of Nigeria.

Abba Kyari's indictment has exposed the duplicity of the Nigerian police

Princewill Akubumma ll Biafra Writers

August 6,  2021.

The indictment of the dismissed Nigerian police chief, Abba Kyari, has opened a can of worms and the level of decays in the Nigerian police force. 

The seemingly corrupt police chief who had been conferred "super cop" by government authorities, has met his waterloo at the beginning of August 2021, as a United States court indicted him in the case of money laundering involving a notorious internet fraudster, Abbas Ramon, also known as Hushpuppi.  

Evidently, all the documents released by the United States FBI showed that Abba Kyari's involvement in  fraudulent activities was not only in the case of Hushpuppi but he [Kyari] was also reported to have been a party involved in other nefarious activities as he was being indicted by many witnesses who has emerged from different quarters showing many evidences of corrupt practices he was involved in.

The Nigerian police force as we all know is ladened with gross corruption, injustices and severe human rights abuses, but thank heavens for exposing Abba Kyari whose case is just a "tip of an iceberg," in the face of other atrocities and fraud going on within the Nigerian police force.

Reports revealed that the embattled police chief was responsible for the  extrajudicial killings of detainees whose relatives could not afford to pay the (exorbitant) ransom money being demanded by Abba Kyari and his team of the so-called 'Instant Response Team,' IRT. The latter has upon till now, enriched themselves through this dupery since its establishment. In the process, those detainees whose family members were able to pay the ransom, would be freed; while those who could not, were taken to the slaughterhouse - in most cases their organs harvested, and sold - never to return again.

Furthermore, in some quarters, there are reports alleging that Mr. Kyari had enriched himself so much that he gifted mansions, and expensive cars seized from kidnappers and internet fraudsters to people in his clique.

Kyari was as well said to have, in duplicity, acquired many castles in major cities across Nigeria; even in the Federal Capital Territory Abuja. 

With the latest developments, there arises a major question seeking clarity:  how could a supposed public servant; a common police man become so wealthy, living like an emperor (all from the proceeds of dupery), yet the anti-crime agencies have never probed him? This lends credence to the high level of corruption in all sectors of governance in Nigeria; especially, amongst those who are supposed to check crimes, execute law and order.

The anti-crime agencies have enriched themselves, become so influential (powerful) that no one dares to probe them. However, thank goodness for the FBI's 'intervention' to unmasking the hoax right under our nose.

Hopefully, this would definitely expose many other top police officers, and politicians in Nigeria.
