Until FG proves Kanu inanimate, 'bail jumping' remains frivolous

Until FG proves Kanu inanimate, 'bail jumping' remains frivolous 

July 26, 2021

By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Biafra Writers

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, , Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, 'goes' to court this day (July 26, 2021), in continuation of his trial on treasonous charges trumped up by the Nigerian State. Amid the trial, presents a case that Kanu "jumped bail".

For the records, Kanu, who represents the view of the people of Biafra in the quest for self-determination, was arrested in 2015; charged of treasonous offenses - for agitating peacefully (demanding), a referendum for the Biafran people to determine their social and political status - howbeit , some of the charges which could not hold water, were quashed. 

Subsequently on April 28, 2017, Kanu was released from prison on bail. While serving his bail term; albeit with stringent conditions, his home was raided by Nigerian security forces in September 2017; an awful incident which led to the death of about twenty-eight (28) IPOB members. However, he (Kanu) survived the state-sponsored assassination to eliminate his life at all cost.

Just lately, the IPOB leader was illegally brought back (renditioned) to Nigeria to continue his trial as the government said he had jumped bail. 

In light of this charge, the social media is agog, in a bid to understand how the IPOB leader could have jumped bail when the federal government, which by the way is the prosecution, appeared to have had a hand in Kanu's failed assassination. 

Owing to the fact that no creature runs to its predator for safety; no judge, in accordance with moral standards, should posit that 'Kanu should have reported, or run to the nearby police for safety'. 

As a defendant serving his bail, Nnamdi Kanu is under the security of the presiding jury of the Nigerian court to secure his appearance on any said day and/or time. Alas! The (failed) assassination against Kanu, brought about his flee to a 'safe haven'. As it is said, "for every action, there is a reaction".

In a court of law, if a suspect is deemed likely to fail to turn up in court, the suspect should not be given bail rather he should be remanded while awaiting trial. Why did the federal government grant him bail since they know that he was going to jump bail. 

The bail jumping case remains a frivolous one, and unjustifiable. In the first place, if Kanu was felt to have altered his bail condition(s), the court was bound to have revoked the bail, and possibly issue a bench warrant. Rather, the government chose employ military might to exterminate him.

We are dealing with a government that misinterprets peaceful agitation as treason, call for referendum as call for war, civil wrong as criminal wrong etc. A government riddled with the case of trampling upon people's right.

It is evident to say; "only a tree keeps standing, unshakable, after 'seeing and hearing' signs of its fall."

IPOB Cross River State Calls For Prayers For Mazi Nnamdi Kanu

IPOB Cross River State Calls For Prayers For Mazi Nnamdi Kanu

July 18, 2021

Onoja Christian Obinna  | Biafra Writers

The state coordinator of IPOB Cross River state has praised his members for their resilience in the fight for freedom. The state helmsman made the commendation during an executive meeting in the state’s capital, Calabar, adding that the family has remained undaunted by all the intimidations from the Nigerian state. 

While praising their efforts so far, re reminded them that until freedom is achieved, they have not really done a thing. To this end he urged them to keep the ball rolling, charging every member to double their efforts in evangelism and sensitization of the locals. 

Encouraging the members to remain resolute in this trying time of extraordinary rendition of the Supreme Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the coordinator called on all the chiefs and state elders to organise themselves to support the IPOB leader in prayers, adding that his trauma in the DSS dungeon demands such. 

He also called on pastors to go on their knees and cry out to God for the release of our father in the person of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. In his words, traditional doctors and herbalists are not left out. All are expected to pray for our leader's release. 

He further beckoned on individuals to also seek the face of God concerning the trial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which will be coming up on the 26th of this month and religiously continue with the Psalms as instructed.
Conclusively, the state coordinator urged all Biafrans to follow the IPOB chains of command as laid down by our Leader and shun all divisive comments at this critical time that the enemies of our struggle are seeking to distract us from our sworn objective.

Biafra-land Bubbles for Kanu and Biafra

Biafra-land Bubbles for Kanu and Biafra

July 18, 2021 | EASTERN PILOT 

By David Umahi

The slated July 26, 2021, court appearance of the Supreme Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is no doubt precipitating a huge bubble of activities all over Biafra-land and Nigeria in general. The charismatic freedom fighter will be making a defence against bogus charges pressed against him by the oppressive government of Nigeria, and Biafrans are really bracing up for the D-day. 

Kanu’s abduction and illegal detention is considered as a state terrorism against all Biafrans and not just Kanu and his freedom fighting group. The Biafran nation and foreign elements sympathetic to their cause describe Kanu’s case as sheer persecution and blatant show of hatred against the Biafrans. 26 July therefore is a very important date for them. 

Kanu and his freedom fighting group, IPOB, have not committed any known crime against the Nigerian state or any other country in the world. All they have done is peacefully agitate for an independent Biafran state from Nigeria which they feel has not just been inimical to their growth as a people, but has also been visiting genocide on them for centuries. 

The Nigerian state has however twisted the whole thing, criminalized IPOB’s activities not minding the fact that self-determination is enshrined in its own constitution, and has been killing and incarcerating the group members. 

As solidarity to the persecuted Kanu, Biafrans within the Biafran territory have pledged not to engage in any economic activity on Kanu’s trial day, while those outside Biafra-land will storm Abuja to witness the court proceedings.

IPOB Press Statement | The Biafra Times

July 16, 2021

Based on verifiable information at our disposal concerning the betrayal of our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by few selfish Biafran politicians and greedy businessmen in collaboration with the wicked Nigeria Government, we the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), wish to sound the following note of warning:

 Be it known to all Biafran politicians both serving and non serving, that if any thing happens to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in detention, they will all regret their docility over his plight.

We therefore task all of them including Governors, National Assembly members, Ministers, Commissioners, State lawmakers, Local Government Area Chairmen, all political appointees both current and former to ensure our leader is freed from detention as soon as possible. They can't pretend or feign ignorance at this critical moment in our history and struggle for freedom. If they fail to stand with the people, then they should get ready for the wrath of the people. Should anything happen to our leader while they idly sit back and do or say nothing now, then Biafra land will be made too hot both for them and their families.

Again, all those behind the abduction and extrarendition of our Leader should be ready and prepared to face the bitter consequences of their treachery. Judas' reward awaits them!

All along IPOB has been peaceful while our members are being abuducted and killed by security agents. Now they have abuducted our leader and these so-called Biafran Leaders are keeping sealed lips. We won't take it anymore. It's either they stand with the people or be counted among our enemies.

Our leader cannot be languishing in detention while these people will pretend that all is well. Their Northern counterparts are shamelessly defending Fulani bandits and terrorists rampaging communites across the country yet these weaklings cannot speak out against the injustice against their own. Enough is enough! No more sitting on the fence. Everybody must declare ones stance.

As long as our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu remains incarcerated in Abuja, all the politicians from ward level to federal level including traditional rulers,  stakeholders and religious leaders will never have peace till he comes out except they wake up now.

Malami Set to Deny Attacks on Canadian Minister

Malami Set to Deny Attacks on Canadian Minister

July 12, 2021

By David Umahi | Biafra Writer

Nigerian Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, recently took a broadside at Kelechi Madu, the Minister of Justice and Solicitor-General of Alberta in Canada. Malami, in response to a recent criticism of Madu, described him as ignorant and an empty vessel that has not represented his country of birth well.

The Nigerian-born Canadian had expressed disappointment with Malami for his part in the kidnap of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in Kenya last June. The extraordinary rendition in Kenya by the Nigerian agents is a grave violation in international relation that soils the integrity of the involved countries.

The abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, a Biafran-born British citizen, has been drawing international outcry. Lord Alton of Liverpool last Wednesday, July 7, demanded an inquiry into the alleged role of the government of Kenya in the adoption and maltreatment of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the circumstances surrounding his transfer to Nigeria against his will. He also demanded to know if any assistance is being provided for him by the British High Commission in Nigeria.

That Malami’s concern right now is tantrums at the Canadian minister when the Nigerian government has a lot to explain to the world is a surprise to the public. Well, Malami has a penchant for denial and having only recently demonstrated that penchant in denying his deride against the Igbo, many are wondering if he won’t pull off same stunt in the Madu calumny.

Holding Nnamdi Kanu Is Like holding a Mother Hen

By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Biafra Writers

July 8th, 2021. 

The abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Kenya and subsequent illegal detention in Nigeria has elicited diverse reactions from the public. Particularly in Biafra, the atmosphere is not friendly at all. His followers are believed to be waiting for a signal from the leadership to make the country feel their wrath. 

Although Kenyan government continues to deny its involvement in the abduction of Kanu, every fact available in public domain establishes the opposite. Kenya is neck-deep in this international crime. 

In and outside Nigeria, numerous voices have faulted the action of the Nigerian government, with many wondering why the same strength exercised in Kanu’s case cannot be displayed against the bandits who are killing people everywhere in the country and their mouthpiece, Gumi.

It should be noted that Kanu leads a pressure group called IPOB whose actions have been in tandem with both international and local laws till date. But the Nigerian government being led by an Islamic president, has tried severally to incriminate the group.  

Recently, a very deadly militant group called the Unknown Gunmen surfaced in the East. This group was dislodging military and police checkpoints. With no evidence, the Nigerian government accused Nnamdi Kanu of being behind the group.

Understand that there has never been a time this militant group pledged allegiance to Kanu or associated its activities with him. Yet the government in its bid to incriminate Kanu and IPOB conveniently points accusing finger at him.

Indisputably, Kanu represents the aspirations of all Biafrans and by extension, an overwhelming number of Nigerians. The 100% compliance to the yearly Sit-at-home order by Kanu demonstrates this fact. 

The Yoruba nation has declared their support for the incarcerated Biafra leader. Cho Ayaba, the commander of the Ambazonian arm forces, has also thrown his support behind him. And the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) who demanded for his release in 2015, has resurfaced.


Kanu is fighting for all. He is fighting seriously for the black race. The reactions from all over Africa and outside have shown that he is undoubtedly not alone. Indeed Nigeria is holding a mother hen. Kanu must be released to avoid the acidic rain that is about to fall.

IPOB press Statement 

We the global movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indomitable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, express our disappointment with President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya and his Government over his role in the abduction of our Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his subsequent smuggling into Nigeria by the wicked Nigeria security agents. We are still at shock why a President like Uhuru Kenyatta would stoop so low to collude with a terror-friendly Government like Nigeria under President Muhamnadu Buhari to abduct and dehumanize our Leader for doing nothing other than demanding the freedom of Biafrans from the Nigeria bondage.

Based on our preliminary findings, President Uhuru Kenyetta was very instrumental to the abduction of our Leader in Kenya.

The treacherous action of Uhuru kenyatta against Nnamdi Kanu and Biafrans at large is a clear violation of the 1949  Geneva Convention, and United Nations Code.

We still don't understand why Uhuru kenyatta and some corrupt officials of his Government would prefer to betray Nnamdi Kanu and Biafrans? Is it because of Nigeria oil money? Is it because of the paltry N100 million bounty placed on Kanu's head by some Northern charlatans?  Why will President Uhuru Kenyetta sell our leader Mazi Nnamdi to the evil hands of Nigerian government?

 It is so shameful that Uhuru kenyatta would belittle himself in a manner he has just done.

By this wickedness and grievous sin, Uhuru kenyatta has demonstrated his affection for the murderous Fulani terrorists  ravaging the entire Nigeria killing and maiming indigenous people in their ancestral lands. 

Uhuru kenyatta and his partners in crime should get ready to meet us at the International Criminal Court, ICC. This act of terror against our Leader, Nnamdi Kanu, a NATO citizen, British citizen with British International Passport and member of other international organizations will not go unpunished.

As we continue with our investigations into this crime with a view to unmasking all the collaborators, we announce the following interim actions until further notice:

We call on all Biafrans both home and in the diaspora to boycott travels with Kenya Air Lines; to immediately stop patronizing any product made in Kenya; and to boycott any business dealings with Kenyans. We cannot be relating friendly with anyone collaborating with our oppressors to keep us in perpetual slavery!

We also want to urge all Biafrans and members of the public to disregard all the concocted rubbish the wicked Nigeria Government and their agents have been peddling about how and where our leader was arrested. He was never arrested but abducted. All these cock and bull story is to twist facts and blackmail our selfless leader who they have seen as the major obstacle against their agenda to completely Islamise and Fulaniz Nigeria. Nobody should believe these lies. They are only intended to demarket our Leader and puncture his global reputation and teeming follower-ship.

The global family of IPOB reaffirm our unalloyed loyalty, belief and confidence in our leader Nnamdi Kanu. Biafrans are united behind him in his current ordeals in the hands of our oppressors. We also wish to remind the Nigeria Government that nothing should happen to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
