WE HAVE NO HAND IN THE ATTACK OF GOV. WILLIE OBIANO - IPOB


October 14, 2021

IPOB PRESS STATEMENT

We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great and indefatigable leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU, strongly condemn the spate of senseless attacks on innocent people in South East by politically-recruited hoodlums masquerading as unknown gunmen. 

It is quite unfortunate that some unpatriotic and unscrupulous elements who are intimidating their fellow politicians because of the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State will resort to bloodletting for power. More annoying is the fact that after their atrocities, some brainwashed fellows will be pointing accusing fingers at IPOB.

We condemn the attack on Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra State yesterday. Contrary to allegations by our enemies, IPOB has no hand in the said attack. It is now becoming more obvious that those Gov. Obiano accused of masterminding the killings in his state are angry with him for exposing them. The South East governors that Obiano said he would not sit at table with to discuss insecurity in his state should be made to explain all they know about the senseless killings in Anambra State.

We pity those who are chasing after shadow, pointing accusing fingers at IPOB. Such fellows are ignorant of what politicians are capable of doing because of power. Igbo politicians were not like this before but desperation for power and determination by Fulani cabal to replicate what happened in Imo State in Anambra State are the reason for this madness. Their ultimate goal is to demonize IPOB.

Our people must shine their eyes because fulani have planted their terrorists in our territory to eliminate high profile Biafrans.  Those self acclaimed Igbo Elite, Ohaneze leaders, traditional rulers and religious leaders must look inward to fish out these FULANI-sponsored agents of death. They should stop linking IPOB with these killings because IPOB did not come to kill but to save, restore and rebuild.

Unknown gunmen: ESN, we know; who are you?



By Eluwa Chidiebere Chinazu | Biafra Writers


October 11th, 2021. 


A couple of days ago, the youth wing of Ohanaeze - a political organization in Southeast Nigeria - called on the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to disband the Eastern Security Network (ESN). ESN is a security outfit launched by the IPOB to "protect, and safeguard the entire Biafra territory from the oppression of Fulani killer-herdsmen".


According to the Ohanaeze youth, the ESN should be disbanded because of the different killings going on in the Southeast which ESN was said to have been involved.


However, there has been several attacks by unidentified thugs whom have been christened  "unknown gunmen" by the masses.


It is on record that the govenors in the Southeast; otherwise, the 'chief security officers' of their respective States, have many a time made empty calls of curbing the seeming security challenges. In the stead of effecting the latter, they went as far as creating Ebubeagu security outfit to rival the activities of ESN. The Southeast political leaders since the formation of ESN have never failed to make clear their aim which is to get rid of the ESN security arm of the Biafran people.


Now the big question; who are the unknown gunmen? The ESN, we know, and have been seen on peculiar times; via video clips driving the dreaded Fulani herders away; but the "unknown gunmen" - as the preceding adjective implies - have yet to reveal their identikit. To that effect; it is, of course, hard to find the sponsors of a group of armed men whose identity is yet to be discovered. But connecting statements and reactions, one could have a hold onto something.


On October 3, 2021, the home of prominent Igbo politician, Joe Igbokwe, was razed (by fire) by these unidentified hoodlums. Within two hours of the incident, IPOB was said to have had a hand in the arson attack; without proof to backing it up. To all intents, it is probable that Joe Igbokwe might have planned the attack on his house, and had cooked up what to say in the aftermath. This is to give IPOB, whom he ridiculed (knelt down in praise to God) when its leader was renditioned by the Nigerian government, a bad name. Joe Igbokwe could be one of the politicians sponsoring this unknown gunmen. 


To kill a great man, you should first kill their name. The political class from Biafraland is on a mission to give Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and IPOB a bad name; in order to them appear rebellious. The reason for creating the character called unknown gunmen is evident in the call by the youth wing of the political group Ohanaeze and the false claim of another politician, Joe Igbokwe.

Unknown Gunmen, Nigeria’s Card against Biafra Restoration



By Onoja Christian Obinna | Biafra Writers


October 7th, 2021. 


Right from the day of the Northern and Southern amalgamation that gave birth to what is now called Nigeria by Frederick John Dealtry Lugard, a British colonial representative, the South East has suffered enormously from all governments. The people of Igbo nation have always been targeted for extermination, a situation that caused the people to seek a country of their own, Biafra.  


The young republic led by late general Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu was met with a war of aggression by the Nigerian government then led by Yakubu Gowon – a war that lasted three years and claimed the life of over three million Biafran civilians from 1967-'70.


To assuage the damage in Biafra, the federal government of Nigeria had come up with the 3R’s (Rehabilitation, Reconstruction and Reintegration). The government soon renegaded on its promises, however, and this is believed to be responsible for the resurgence of Biafra agitation in the present day.  


Despite the No Victor No Vanquish proclamation by Nigerian government, the horrors of war are made even more intense with government policies targeted at the Biafran. Practically all sectors of government in Nigeria reflect a master/servant arrangement.


KANU AND THE REBIRTH OF BIAFRA STRUGGLE 

In early 2012, a young prince named Nnamdi Okwu Kanu from Isiama Afara-ukwu Ibeku in Abia state was inspired to resurrect the Biafra agitation having had his years of studies in Britain. 


He instituted a radio station (Radio Biafra London) through which he preached the gospel of liberation for the people of eastern Nigeria, a cause he was so much dedicated to till he was arrested by Nigerian government. The arrest sparked heavy protests in all states of eastern Nigeria – the region he has been campaigning for dismemberment from the larger Nigeria. The protesters were meted with a lethal force by the Nigerian security forces.  Many unarmed civilians were killed. It was so gruesome that even Amnesty international reported it.  


On 28 April 2017, Kanu was released from prison on stringent bail conditions. As he awaited his court appearance day, the Nigerian military invaded his home, killing 28 men in a bid to get at him. The trauma resulted in the demise of his parents. Kanu who had miraculously survived the attack went incommunicado for thirteen months, resurfacing in Jerusalem to the chagrin of Nigerian government. 


FULANI HERDSMEN MENACE IN BIAFRA LAND

The incessant attacks, killing and rapping of Biafrans in their farmlands by the Fulani herders prompted Kanu to write the eastern states governors, appealing to them to checkmate the deadly terror of the Fulani herders. Either the elected authorities lacked the inability to do so or they didn’t care enough, for they ignored the plea.


Unable to watch more lives destroyed by the marauding herders, Kanu in December 2020 floated a security outfit named Eastern Security Network (ESN), with a well spelt out jurisdiction. The outfit is saddled with the responsibility of protecting Biafra forests and farmlands from foreign invaders, the Nigerian government haven asserted that the herdsmen are foreigners from neighboring countries. 


For inexplicable reasons, the Nigerian government saw the ESN as a threat and sent in the army to attack them. Many lives were lost. The raids were especially intense in Imo state where the installed Fulani puppet governor was doing his best to please his slave masters. 

 

Although IPOB has remained nonviolent and civil in its demands, Nigerian government has ignored all diplomatic calls to address the agitation, choosing instead to indict the group as a violent outfit.


ADOPTION OF THE FIFTH COLUMNISTS APPROACH

The defeat of the Fulani mercenaries sent by the federal government to unleash Jihad on the people of Biafra made the cabal in power to change strategy. A force within a force was created and called the "Unknown Gunmen," with the special assignment of  killing Igbo people in Nigerian security services while the media will be used to blame it on IPOB. To make it seamless, these hired folks were made to carry out heinous crimes on IPOB sit-at-home days. 


Just as a bird will not rest until it finishes its nest, the Nigerian government never relented in test running every avenue to deploy the function of the fifth columnists in destabilizing the resoluteness of the people as that appears to be the only option left for them to apply since the use of force and incessant killings could not deter the people. 


Will Biafrans allow them to achieve their aim? Time will tell.

WHY WE ARE REVIEWING THE MONDAY INDEFINITE SIT-AT-HOME ORDER - IPOB




 IPOB PRESS RELEASE | THE BIAFRA TIMES

14/08/2021 


WHY WE ARE REVIEWING THE MONDAY INDEFINITE SIT-AT-HOME ORDER - IPOB


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.

ANY TRADITIONAL RULER IN BIAFRA LAND REPORTING HIS SUBJECTS TO THE ARMY FOR OPPOSING THE SALE OF LAND TO FULANI HERDSMEN SHOULD PREPARE TO REAP THE FRUIT OF TREACHERY - IPOB


Published on The Biafra Times

August 12, 2021. 

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.”

BIAFRA: WE RELATE WITH GENUINE FREEDOM FIGHTERS, NOT TRAITORS - IPOB TELLS SAKO EKOME OF AMBAZONIA

 


IPOB PRESS RELEASE 

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?
