Terrorists Takes Over Kaduna, Banned 2023 Political Activities – Governor El-Rufai Writes President Buhari

  Terrorists Takes Over Kaduna, Banned 2023 Political Activities – Governor El-Rufai Writes President Buhari



Governor Nasir El-Rufai says terrorists are consolidating their grip on communities in the state with a parallel government and permanent operational base in the North-western state.


According to PREMIUM TIMES, Rufai disclosed this in a late July memo sent to President Muhammadu Buhari.


 

The terrorists belonging to Ansaru al-Musulmina fi Bilad al-Sudan, are believed to have moved to Birnin Gwari in Kaduna State in 2012 when they broke away from Boko Haram.


 

The terrorists that formed Ansaru were said to be responsible for some of the high-profile attacks claimed by Boko Haram before the split.


In El-Rufai’s late July memo obtained by PREMIUM TIMES, he lay bare how the terrorists had infiltrated and dominated communities and formed “a parallel governing authority,” exercising control over social and economic activities and dispensation of justice in the area.


He said the terrorists had advanced in their plans to make Kaduna forest areas their “permanent operational base” for the North-west region, citing a “series of intelligence reports.”


 

“Observed movement patterns and intercepted communications of migrating terrorists have shown a clear interest in setting up a base, with the stretches of forest area between Kaduna and Niger states strongly considered,” he wrote.


As the political activities towards the 2023 general elections pick up steam, the terrorists, El-Rufai told Buhari, have promulgated a law to ban residents from participating.


“The insurgents enacted a law in the district, banning all forms of political activity or campaign ahead of the 2023 elections, especially in Madobiya and Kazage villages,” the governor wrote.


 

The Ansaru terrorists are known to have an extremist ideological posture against democracy and secular authorities.


The ban on political activities, the governor said, followed a recent wedding ceremony involving the terrorists.


 


“According to actionable intelligence, members of the Jama’atu Ansarul Musulmina Fi’biladis Sudan (aka Ansaru) hibernating in Kuyello district of Birnin Gwari LGA recently conducted a nuptial ceremony during which they married two yet-to-be-identified female residents of Kuyello village,” El-Rufai wrote.


 


“The ceremony was attended by various Ansaru members and witnessed by residents of the area. After the marital rites, insurgents in attendance reportedly conveyed the brides to the dreaded Kuduru forest, in the same district.”

IPOB/ESN disassociate self from Viral video, says Ogwu the Imo state Ebubeagu leader is alive

 IPOB/ESN disassociate self from Viral video, says Ogwu the Imo state Ebubeagu leader is alive



We, the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU wish to condemn the barbarity of all criminal gangs in Orsuihiteukwa, Orsumoghu, Orsumenyi and Orlu axis in Imo State. 


IPOB want to clarify that the viral videos showing the execution of a man with a red T-shirt and pair of Jeans who was extrajudicially killed in Imo state is not Ogwu (the mayor of Mozambique) the Ebubeagu Commander in Imo State that masterminded the killing of 14 innocent youths in Awomanma Imo state some weeks ago. It is important we lucidities that IPOB declared him wanted but the extrajudicially murdered person was not Ogwu the Ebebubeagu Commander. 


According to our investigation on that horrific video that went viral the deceased was killed by some criminal gangs created by Hope Uzodinma. According to our intelligence report and discovery he was accused by the criminal gang of sabotage. The young man was deceived that he was joining ESN and along the line he found out he was recruited into a criminal gang and not ESN. He decided to escaped from their camp. The criminal group started searching for him for the fear he might be a big threat and danger to them. 


Unfortunately, they sighted him around “Eke Ututu” in Orsuihiteukwa axis in Orlu Imo State yesterday and kidnapped him. He was taken towards  Lilu/Uda aixs around Ihiala area, executed him and dumped his body in a pit assumed to have other dead bodies from the video evidence as everyone can see circulating on social media.  


These are the evil we continue to expose in Imo state, we have on several occasions alerted the public the kind of criminality going-on in those axis. Most of these criminals and murderers were recruited and armed by Hope Uzodinma and the killer mercenaries called Ebubeagu in colloboration with Nigeria DSS. Hope Uzodima brought all these killers into Imo State to increase insecurity and to exterminate young Igbo youths. Insecurity is a big business in Nigeria because it's an opportunity to launder money by some governors and be in good book for his Fulani Masters in Abuja.  He is cashing on insecurity in Imo State as some of his colleagues in Abuja and the North are making more money with Boko Haram and other bandictry business and terrorism. 


IPOB stated this before now that the criminals were Hope Uzodinma's creation and the Niger Delta militants which Asari Dokubo helped him to import his criminal brothers from Kalabari into the State will metamorphosed into the high class cannibalism in the East. Hope Uzodinma was paid to kill and demonise IPOB but he will only destroy himself and his family because IPOB is pursuing a genuine course for Biafra freedom.  


Our people must come together and ask Hope Uzodinma why he created this monsters in our mist. 


These criminals strategies does not tally with IPOB strategy because we are freedom fighters and not killers of our people whom we are paying ultimate price on daily basis to liberate.


Some dissidents and enemies of Biafra freedom were busy sharing videos of the heinous crime in order to discredit and tarnish the image of ESN operatives and IPOB volunteers in the region. 


The ESN has nothing to do with the cannibalism going on among these criminals imported from Fulani and Niger Delta militants headed by Asari Dokubo. 


Asari Dokubo threatened before now that he will kill many Igbo people as possible as he could to demonise IPOB but one thing is certain all Igbo people cannot be killed by kalabari criminals brought by Asari Dokubo into Imo State against the innocent citizens of the State. 


Hope Uzodinma you can kill today but tomorrow, same monsters might turn against you and your family. The man was killed because he rejected to be part of the infamous group Ebubeagu militia that kidnap for ransom, snatches cars and killing of innocent citizens and continue blaming ESN operatives and IPOB volunteers.

Family Demand Whereabouts Of Bar Owner Tortured, Arrested By Nigerian Security Agents For Allegedly Selling Food, Drinks To ‘Unknown Gunmen In Anambra

 Family Demand Whereabouts Of Bar Owner Tortured, Arrested By Nigerian Security Agents For Allegedly Selling Food, Drinks To ‘Unknown Gunmen In Anambra



The bar is in Ukpor town in the Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State.


 

SaharaReporters learnt that a combined team of security agents made up of police, officials of the Department of State Services and soldiers, who were hunting for 'unknown gunmen’ terrorising the area, stormed Ezechukwu's bar on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, destroying and looting it.


It was gathered that the ferocious-looking security operatives who were led by soldiers of the Nigerian Army accused him of allowing ‘unknown gunmen’ to drink at the bar.



In a statement made available to SaharaReporters on Wednesday titled "Where Is Mr. Anochie Fidel Ezechukwu???", the family said Ezechukwu was neither a criminal nor an unknown gunman.


Signed by Ijeoma Florence, the family narrated, "On Tuesday the 2nd of August, 2022, he woke up like every other hard-working, responsible family man and went about his normal business.


"He runs a Bar/Relaxation spot in his home town in Ukpor, Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State. His business has been boosting the economy of our community in its little way.



"Mr. Ezechukwu was in his spot preparing for the day's business when men of the Nigerian Army and other security forces in full uniform with about 20 vehicles in convoy invaded his business premises and totally destroyed his Bar! They tied him up like a Ram about to be slaughtered, inflicted some fatal injuries on him and took him away to an unknown destination.


 


"Note that in all these, Mr. Ezechukwu was never on the run, never have any criminal questions/allegation/records on his head. He was not in hiding, and never gave any form of resistance to the arrest. So why tie him up like a chicken? Why trample on his human dignity? Why naked him and reduce him to nothingness? Why destroy the place of business he runs with his wife?



"To date, none of his family members, wife, or friends have been able to locate him.


"The accusation against Mr. Ezechukwu is that unknown gunmen may be patronizing his business. Like how on earth are we reduced to this level in this country? How can someone who runs and manages a Bar/Relaxation Spot offence be that ‘unknown gunmen’ comes to take a drink in his establishment?”


"These are supposed to be unknown gunmen right," the family said, adding "so if they are unknown to the Army and all the security formations whose job is to catch them, then how come these security formations that know these unknown gunmen and the fact that they visit Mr. Ezechukwu's place of business left the unknown gunmen and more or less ‘kidnapped’ Mr. Ezechukwu? Something is not right."


They lamented that "this fate that has befallen Mr Ezechukwu is duplicated all over South East. You are an endangered species if you are a young man living in any part of the South East, especially in Imo and some parts of Anambra.



"The general public should please come to the aid of the family. Help us ask questions. Where is Mr. Anochie Fidel Ezechukwu? HQ Nigerian Army, Nigeria police, members of Civil Society Organisations, ordinary Nigerians, and the masses, help us, please.


"The life of Mr. Ezechukwu, a responsible hard-working Nigerian must not be wasted just like that. He is a family man. His wife must not be made a widow for no just cause.


"All the family asks is that they should know his whereabouts. It is his constitutional right to be entitled to a fair hearing, and be treated with dignity no matter the allegation. He has the right to his family and legal representation!"


 

His twin brother Anochie Dennis Ezechukwu, who spoke with SaharaReporters, also stated that his family had visited all the security formations in the state and all of them claimed that his brother was not in their custody.


 

"If my brother is not in their custody, where is my twin brother?" he asked.


 

He stated that his brother was not a criminal or an unknown gunman, saying if he was a criminal, his community would not have trusted him with leadership positions given to him.


According to him, his brother is the ward leader of Umuolisa-Ehim village, Umunuko Ukpor.


"He is the Secretary of Umuolisa-Ehim village. A revenue officer for Ukpor town union, (covering the Ukpor Central market), and then Security officer at the Celtel Mast in front of his bar/relaxation centre."


Also speaking to SaharaReporters, his wife, Onyinye who witnessed the incident, said that the security agents after looting their business destroyed their shops and took away goat meat pepper soup they had prepared for the day's business.


She noted that they seized her phone to ensure she didn't video their atrocities.


She said, "N50,000 goat slaughtered that day and cooked was taken away together with the pot.


"They took away drinks worth over N200,000 inside three deep freezers. Fish inside the ‘point-and-kill’ worth about N30,000 were all taken away.


 "Two electricity generators, two gas burners and a stove, large screen TV sets and several phones they seized from neighbours to ensure that nobody recorded their activities were taken away."


She said the things destroyed by the security officers include several crates of empty beer bottles, tables, chairs, a tarpaulin, and a GP water tank.


She said they also stole some money, a grinding machine, foodstuffs - rice, garri, beans, tomatoes, onion, seasoning cubes, crayfish and other food items she sells.


Onyinye, who said she is taking refuge in a neighbouring community, noted that even her cooking pots, breakable plates, glass cups, ladles and mat were taken away.

We Killed One Million people to keep Nigeria one, President Muhammadu Buhari admittedly said in an Interview

We Killed One Million people to keep Nigeria one, President Muhammadu Buhari admittedly said in an Interview



President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday said one million Nigerians died in the Biafra war in the fight to keep the nation as one entity.


Mr Buhari said the circumstances that led to such wanton loss of lives between 1967-1970 must not be allowed to repeat itself.


“We have gone through all the troubles from 15th of January 1966 to date. You know what I mean by this, we have killed a million of ourselves in order to keep this country together.”


He said this on Tuesday at the Presidential Villa when he hosted a forum of state chairmen of the defunct CPC, his erstwhile political party which merged with other parties to form the ruling APC.


“I don’t think there can be any practical experience more than that. We are Nigerians, God willing we remain Nigerians and Nigeria will remain one,’’ Mr Buhari assured.


Praising his visitors for their continued support for his administration, Mr Buhari urged political leaders to stay focused and uphold the ultimate objective of promoting the interest of the country.


During the massacre of Igbo Biafrans in Nigeria between 1966 and 1970, one to three million people died. In the decades since, writers have worked to make sense of the immense human tragedy.


These literary representations of the massacres use the Holocaust as an important point of reference.


The war in Nigeria, with its associated mass atrocities, is arguably one of the first major moments in postcolonial Africa when accusations of genocide were made. The military and ethnic extremists systematically targeted and killed Igbo Biafrans across the then Northern and Western regions of Nigeria.


Massacres of Igbos and other Easterners across the country led to thousands of deaths and the displacement of millions.


The massacres led the Eastern Region of Nigeria to declare its secession from Nigeria. The region was renamed the republic of Biafra. Nigeria invaded Biafra in July 1967, leading to a protracted war. The federal government used starvation tactics which led to upwards of three million civilian deaths in Biafra. Biafra officially surrendered to Nigeria in January 1970.


After its genocidal war, the Nigerian government proceeded to engineer a culture of denial.


To counter that propaganda, writers reflecting on that past have often framed the war as genocide. A common feature in the writings is the comparison of Igbo experiences of atrocities to Jewish ones during the Holocaust.


The Holocaust as cultural icon of genocide

During the Biafran War, U.S.-based Igbo poet, Onwuchekwa Jemie, compared the murder of Igbos in Nigeria to the Nazi German murder of Jews during the Second World War. His poem, “Requiem” (from his 1970 poetry collection, Biafra: Requiem for the Dead in War) reflects this:


In “Requiem,” Jemie catalogues the systematic persecutions and murders of Igbo civilians, which he considers similar to the Nazis’ “final solution.”


The lines “a final solution / that failed again” encapsulate the poet’s defiant view that Biafra will survive the genocidal onslaught from Nigeria.


Global history scholar Lasse Heerten has explained in his work on Biafra, that such comparisons of Igbo suffering to the Nazi genocide of Jews reveal the growing awareness of the Holocaust in African conflict zones at the time.


The comparison of Igbo suffering to the Holocaust offers a way for the writers to internationalize Igbo experience in Nigeria. In so doing, they are sharing a moral message about the universal condition of human cruelty.


The cruel human condition

Similarly, the 1971 poem “Vultures” by Chinua Achebe reflects on the troubling realization that humans possess simultaneously a capacity for human care and a vulture’s inhumane savagery. The poet imagines a Nigerian military commander as a vulture and compares him to the Commandant of the Nazis’ death camp at Belsen:


Achebe’s reference to the Holocaust evokes the Nazi death camps as a site of savagery: “fumes of / human roast.” He seems to be alluding to Paul Celan’s 1948 poem, “Death Fugue,” which describes the cremation of Jewish victims in the Nazi camps as a “grave in the sky.”


Reference to the Holocaust in Achebe’s poem provides a way to meditate on the ironic condition of human cruelty.


Another writer who used the Holocaust as a metaphor for moralizing about the human condition is Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka, who was jailed for his attempts to mediate between Biafra and Nigeria. His 1972 prison memoir The Man Died expresses his frustration over the unending cycles of brutality and the pattern of genocidal murders taking place in Nigeria. Soyinka’s other books, plays and poems on the 1966-1970 crisis equally draw on the Holocaust as a way to comment on cruelty.


‘And the World Has Remained Silent’


Such comparison between Igbo suffering and the Holocaust intending to convey a moral message on human condition can be found in several other writings, including Flora Nwapa’s Never Again, Chris Abani’s Graceland (2004), Nnedi Okorafor’s fantasy novels, Who Fears Death (2010) and The Book of Phoenix (2015), and notably too in Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel, Half of a Yellow Sun (2006).


In Half of a Yellow Sun, there are several instances comparing the experiences of Igbos to those of Jews under the Nazis.


For example, the title of the character Ugwu’s story, ‘The World Was Silent When We Died,’ echoes the original Yiddish title of Elie Wiesel’s Holocaust memoir, Un di Velt Hot Geshvign, (“And the World Has Remained Silent”).


Universalize can also mean generalize

I believe these literary analogies between Jewish and Igbo experiences have helped to make the atrocities public and known. However, these analogies can also overwhelm the particulars of the Nigerian context of the crisis.


Because the political contexts of such historical mass atrocities being compared vary significantly, these comparisons may come at the cost of our understanding of genocide in African states. Both African and European historical contexts within which these atrocities occurred may become de-territorialized and depoliticized.


In the meantime, local suppression of political questions of Igbo self-determination and justice in the war’s aftermath remain unaddressed.

Arbitrary Detention of Kanu: 'Your Silence Makes UK Pursuit for The Presidency Of UNSC A Joke' -- Bruce Fein Writes UK High Commissioner, Abuja

 Arbitrary Detention of Kanu:  'Your Silence Makes UK Pursuit for The Presidency Of UNSC A Joke' -- Bruce Fein Writes UK High Commissioner, Abuja

Bruce Fein



Bruce Fein, on Tuesday, 9 August, 2022, wrote to Catriona Wendy Laing, British High Commissioner to Nigeria. In the letter, Fein frowned at the British High Commissioner's silence over the United Nation's Working Group demand for the immediate release and compensation of Nnamdi Kanu the leader of Indigenous people of Biafra. Fein said "It is making the Great Britain's presidency of the United Nation's Security Council(UNSC) a joke".


In a form that appears like a rebuke for docility, the international legal counsel to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu accuses Liang of haven "idled" over the said demand from U.N working group, because she, Catriona Laing "cannot claim ignorance".


Recall that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB) was in June 2021, kidnapped in Kenya by the Nigeria government, in collaboration with their Kenyan counterparts in what international legal experts calls “clean case of violation of international law.” Days later, the IPOB leader was extra ordinary renditioned to Nigeria, after being cruelly tortured in a private room for 8 days. 


“And for the eight days he was held incommunicado, nothing of presenting him before a court or transferring him to an official detention facility was ever mentioned. He was held in a nondescript private facility and chained to a bare floor”-Lawyer


“Kanu was in point of fact tortured and subjected to untold inhuman treatment in Kenya. He said his abductors disclosed to him that they abducted him at the behest of the Nigerian government,” Kanu's Lawyer.


Since his extra ordinary rendition to Nigeria Kanu has been illegally detained in solitary confinement at the Department Of State Services(DSS) in Abuja.


Just recently after a long silence, the U.N Working Group on Arbitrary Detention issued an order to the Nigerian government, demanding the immediate release and compensation of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. But the Nigerian government is yet to react accordingly. Worst still, Kanu holds British Citizenship, and deserves that the British High Commission do something positively to free their citizen from solitary confinement.


Kanu international legal lawyer Bruce Fein, wrote to the British High Commissioner, describing her Commission's behaviour as “embarrassing the UK and cause of human rights”, for doing nothing to ensure the release of the IPOB leader. Fein also requested that the Commissioner promptly inform him on steps being taken to secure Nigeria’s compliance with the Working Group Opinion, calling for Nnamdi Kanu’s immediate, unconditional release and reparations.


The letter, which was made available to Family Writers Press International by Kanu’s special counsel, Barr Aloy Ejimakor, with subject:  “RE: Immediate, Unconditional Release of U.K. citizen Nnamdi Kanu, U.N. Working Group on Arbitrary Detention Opinion No. 25/2022’.”


Fein recalled that on July 20, 2022, the United Nations Human Rights Council Working Group on Arbitrary Detention issued a ‘unanimous opinion addressing United Kingdom citizen, Nnamdi Kanu’s kidnapping, torture, extraordinary rendition, and protracted detention without trial by Nigeria acting in collusion with Kenya’.


He said, “The Working Group Opinion called upon Nigeria ‘to take urgent action to ensure the immediate unconditional release of Mr. Kanu’.”


He quoted offences committed to Kanu as catalogued in Paragraph 107 of the Opinion to include: “The deprivation of liberty…in contravention of articles 2, 3, 7, 8, 9,10, 11, and 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and articles 2, 9, 13, 14, 16, 19, and 26 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights….”


The letter read in part, “The villainous maltreatment of Nnamdi Kanu by Nigeria and Kenya prompted the Working Group to refer his case to Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment. Paragraph 109.


“More than one month has elapsed since the unambiguous Working Group Opinion. Nigeria has sneered at the Opinion as nothing but a scrap of paper like Belgium neutrality scorned by Germany in World War I to which Britain responded with war.”


He recalled that the UK in the time past ‘fiercely defended its citizens against lawlessness by foreign nations’, and ‘fought the War of Jenkins Ear in 1739 with Spain over an amputated ear of a British Captain by Spanish coast guards in the West Indies’.


He further state that, “Nnamdi Kanu is a British citizen. He has suffered far more than Captain Jenkins at the hands of Nigeria and Kenya as corroborated and held by the U.N. Working Group.


“Yet you have done nothing to secure Mr Kanu’s immediate and unconditional release as mandated by international law. Indeed, you have idled like Nero fiddling while Rome burned. You cannot claim ignorance.


“The United States is moving heaven and earth to obtain the release of a United States basketball player from Russia after she pled guilty to a drug violation. It has offered to trade a notorious imprisoned arms trafficker Viktor Bout in exchange for Britney Griner’s freedom.


“Nnamdi Kanu, unlike Mr Griner, is innocent. He has not been convicted of any crime. Indeed, he is a victim of multiple crimes perpetrated by Nigerian and Kenyan authorities. Yet you and your superiors continue to permit Mr Kanu to suffer in a Nigerian dungeon in flagrant violation of international law.”


He made analogies between Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and Nigeria’s treatment of ‘Biafrans’, and warned that, “Russia’s attack on Ukraine is a tea party compared with Nigeria’s ongoing genocide of Biafrans—the Holocaust sans the gas chambers.


“It is not acceptable under law or God that Great Britain would declaim against the former and ignore the latter. Your silence is making Great Britain’s presidency of the United Nations Security Council a joke.


“I regret the resort to language outside the customary euphemisms of diplomacy. But justice for Nnamdi Kanu and 70-80 million Biafrans is too important to be left to ambiguous clues or semaphore.


“I request that you inform me promptly of the steps you have taken or contemplate taking to secure Nigeria’s compliance with the Working Group Opinion calling for Nnamdi Kanu’s immediate, unconditional release and reparations. Nothing would gratify me more than for you to earn an honored chapter in the annals of human rights and international law.”

IPOB declare members of Ebubeagu persona non-granta, vows that ESN will confront them

 IPOB declare members of Ebubeagu persona non-granta, vows that ESN will confront them


Following the incessant killing of innocent citizens in Imo state by the Ebubeagu militia formed by Supreme Court Administrator of Imo State Hope Uzodinma, we the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU wish to state unequivocally and openly to all and sundry that IPOB is about to unleash its venom on the terrorist Ebubeagu for the countless massacre of our people especially in Imo state. 


IPOB is very much aware that the murderous members of Ebubeagu were drafted from militants from the Coastal part of Biafra (South South), fulani bandits and some notorious crimininal Igbo boys. The objective for the creation of this murderous outfit is not to stop crimininal activities but to harass, intimidate and depopulate innocent Igbo youths, which they have been doing unchallenged for a while now. This evil outfit conduct illegal arrest of people and extort hundreds of thousands of Naira as ransom before their hapless victims are freed. 


Those who are not able to raise the thousands demanded of them for their freedom are killed. This murderous militia take as much as N500,000 from their unfortunate victims. We have evidences of those they extorted to bail themselves with such exhobitant amount before they were freed. 


The Imo State people’s choice Governor was upturned by Fulani controlled judiciary in favour of Hope Uzodimma to do this dirty job of slaughtering our innocent youths and destroying our people's properties. Hope have used Ebubeagu to kill and destroy so many lives and homes in Imo State that it has become mind boggling and has to be stopped. The recent killing in Ugbele Izombe in Oguta LGA can only be discribed as a genocide and we won't allow such to continue in Biafraland.


IPOB has kept quiet for so long and have appealed to Hope Uzodima to disband the blood sucking demons he created but all to no avail. Now it has become obvious to us that Hope Uzodinma and his masters are spilling the blood of our people for diabolical reasons in addition to the depopulation of Imo youths agenda. IPOB have responsibility to defend our people and our land against invading terrorists.  We are therefore declaring every Ebubeagu member a persona non-granta in Igboland. Going forward, 


IPOB Leadership has given a matching Order to ESN volunteers to go after the murderous Ebubeagu group and stop them from killing our people.


Few weeks ago the Ebubeagu militias murdered 14 innocent Imo youths coming back from traditional wedding in Awo-Mmamma. 


Ebubeagu invaded Izombe town in Oguta LGA of IMO State at the early hours of Saturday being the 6th of August, 2022, shooting sporadically at innocent people without any reason or provocation and killing two people on the spot in the process. So many were matcheted and others sustained degree of gun shot injuries. They abducted over 30 people, took away some cash that belongs to some local traders and even their goods. The most worrisome part of it is that, they abducted some masquarades (Okorosha festival men) which is an abomination in Igbo culture ( because Ebubeagu members are alien to Igbo culture). In the end, several houses, vehicles, motorcycles and shops were burnt down.


These terrorist group called Ebubeagu have rendered many children orphans and made many women untimely widows and childless while at the same time rendering them homeless. This babaric killings must stopped and the killers and their sponsors must answer for their crimes against humanity.    


It is on record that governor Hope Uzodinma boasted of inviting the military to kill those people he pretends to be governing. It is so pathetic and heart rendering  that Imo indigenes have refused to call Hope Uzodinma and his APC co-travellers and its killing squad to order.  The worst is that when they kill they blame it on IPOB and ESN operatives. It's unfortunate that Imo State Traditional Rulers and stakeholders in Imo state have remained mute while Hope Uzodinma's militia in collaboration with the DSS and Police murder Imo State youths at will.


What kind of man is Hope Uzodinma? A vicious and blood sucking vampire in Imo State. How did Imo citizens offend you that you derived joy in killing your supposed subjects? Other Governors in Nigeria protect their people. We know that APC Party is a killer party and your are the henchman of your party in Igbo land.


We want to remind Hope Uzodima that IPOB has a social contract to secure our people's lives and property. Therefore, going forward ESN has the responsibility to stop your murderous Ebubeagu from further maiming, and killing of our people and destroying their properties. That we shall do by the grace of Chukwu Okike Abiama.


Don't say we didn't warn you.

Stop your blackmail against IPOB, we have nothing against northerners doing their genuine Business in Biafra--IPOB replies Police

Stop your blackmail against IPOB, we have nothing against northerners doing their genuine Business in Biafra--IPOB replies Police

 


The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has distanced itself from the killing of eight northerner’s living in Orogwe, Imo state.

 

Recall that eight northerners were reportedly killed in Imo state, and IPOB was accused in the process.

 

Denying its involvement on Saturday, the freedom movement in press statement signed by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, said that it has nothing against the Hausa people living peacefully in the region.

 

Powerful said that those accusing IPOB are looking for cheap blackmail that is dead on arrival.

 

The press statement read in full

 

 

IPOB PRESS RELEASE

06/08/2022

 

NIGERIA POLICE AND EBUBEAGU MURDEROUS MILITIAS ARE PARTNERS IN CRIME -IPOB

 

The attention of the global movement and noble family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the great leader of IPOB Mazi Nnamdi KANU has been drawn to the laughable disgraceful, unguarded and fabricated statement alleging that IPOB members were responsible for the gruesome murder of eight northern people living in Orogwe, suburb community in Owerri, Imo State.

 

It is unfortunate that Nigeria Government and her Security Agencies would descend so low to collude with the Ebubeagu militia that Gov. Hope Uzodinma created to kill innocent people just to blackmail IPOB. Is Fulani terrorist sponsoring Government not tied of this wicked and blood shielding of the innocent civilians in the East just to blackmail and demonize IPOB?

 

IPOB has not and will never attack any peaceful individual or group of people doing legitimate business or trading in our territory.  We are only after those criminals created by Nigeria Securities and bandits they brought into our territory  masquarading as Fulani herdsmen who kidnap for ransom, rape our women and murder our farmers.

 

IPOB will never succumb to the pressure and blackmail of the Nigerian government  from pursuing those terrorists masquerading as herdsmen in our bushes and forests.  ESN has been dealing and dislodging those sponsored terrorists and will continue to do so until they vacate our Forest. Therefore, Nigeria Police and its sister security agencies operating in Biafraland should leave IPOB alone and stop trying to dissuade us from this devine assignment to sanitize our territory of terrorists because their propaganda and blackmail is hopeless like the Supreme Court Administrator of Imo State.

 

In over 90 countries where IPOB operates, the people and their Governments acknowledges that IPOB is a peaceful movement and family seeking for freedom from its Nigeria Pharoas.

Only in Nigeria that IPOB is demonized, blackmailed and killed extrajudicially by their coward and spineless security forces.

 

IPOB did not harm anyone in Imo State on Monday and have no plan or intention of doing so because we are peaceful and have not indulged in  enforcing non-existent Monday sit-at-home order.  We are focused on rescuing Biafrans from the damnable Zoological Republic of Nigeria.

We wonder why Nigeria government using their stooge in Imo State will be collaborating with Ebubeagu militia to murder innocent citizens while using the Police and DSS agents to shield them and then turn around to point accusing fingers at IPOB.

 

Biafrans should be aware that Nigeria compromised security agencies are deeply complicit in the numerous kidnappings for ransom  and killing of innocent citizens in the East which they maliciously tag on IPOB and ESN. They are doing all these barbaric activities to place IPOB in bad light to our people and International Community. Every Biafran, including good spirited Nigerians Knows that IPOB/ESN is not and can not be involved in the unwanted killings of our people that we are paying heavy price to protect. BIAFRA enemies can do their best to stop us but in the end BIAFRA will be restored because  CHUKWUOKIKEABIAMA is behind and at the helm of this struggle.
