Eastern Security Network Storms Illegal Fulani Invaders Camp, Destroys Properties Left While They Escaped

Eastern Security Network Storms Illegal Fulani Invaders Camp, Destroys Properties Left While They Escaped





 

 Operatives Of The Eastern Security Network (ESN) has reportedly stormed an Illegal camp owned & operated by notorious Fulani terror herdsmen, in Lokpanta/Ishiagu, which they readily use for their nefarious campaigns against Indigenous people especially farmers who are engaging in agricultural activities during farming sessions.

 

The ESN in a #viralvideo published by Mazi Chinasa Nworu explained that the counterterrorism operation, was conducted on 25th February 2024 and that the herdsmen were ostensibly tipped off before the operation took place, given the fact that the ESN operatives met an empty camp, when they arrived and only had to seamlessly clear the perimeter and torch the affected area.

 

The Indigenous People Of Biafra Movement & Leadership - who is the sole proprietor and command possessor of the Eastern Security Network - has sworn that no place, forest/bushes in Eastern region will harbor or contain the Fulani herdsmen, and this pledge was reiterated in the formal speeches of various strategic ESN command units across the East - during the ESN 3rd Anniversary commemoration on 10th December, 2023.

 

The ESN has continued to live up to the promise, to invariably enable and encourage agricultural activities by the residents of East during this farming season, as the economic hardship in Nigeria continues to nosedive negatively.

 

Moreover, recently the IPOB movement closed the cattle rearing, pastoralism market of the East, to only Indigenes and limited foreigners from engaging in the business.

 

According to the IPOB movement, this policy was initiated not only as a precautionary measure against the Fulani marauders and their terror activities, but also to encourage the breeding of the Indigenous livestocks, which its existence is being threatened by the excessiveness of the Fulani cattle stock across Nigeria but primarily in the East.

IPOB's Withdrawal Of Interest In Nigerian Judiciary As Regards Kanu's Trial

 IPOB's Withdrawal Of Interest In Nigerian Judiciary As Regards Kanu's Trial 

Nnamdi Kanu

The ongoing trial of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been marred by series of legal irregularities and injustices. Recently, the IPOB leadership, the Directorate of States(DOS) made the decision to withdraw their interest in the Justice Binta Nyako's Federal High Court continued trial of its Leader's Case. This decision comes in the wake of a deeply troubling Supreme Court ruling on December 15, 2023, which have been viewed as a miscarriage of justice.

 

The Supreme Court Justices in their ruling, admitted to several critical points that highlight the injustice faced by Nnamdi Kanu. Firstly, they acknowledged that Kanu did not jump bail but rather escaped assassination when the military invaded his house on September 14, 2017. Same invasion which led to the loss of 28 lives and destruction of properties.

 

Secondly, the Supreme Court Justices condemned the manner in which the IPOB leader was abducted in Kenya and extradited to Nigeria. The extraordinary rendition violated international law and Kanu's rights, yet he continues to be held in detention without bail.

 

Thirdly, the Supreme Court Justices criticized Justice Binta Nyako's decision to revoke Kanu's bail. This decision, which was based on spurious allegations, further demonstrates the bias and unfairness that have characterized this trial.

 

It is important to note that the Court of Appeal had previously delivered a landmark ruling on October 13, 2022, which took all these factors into consideration. The Court of Appeal discharged and acquitted Kanu of all charges, declaring him ineligible to stand trial further in any Nigerian court. This ruling was a clear indication of the lack of merit in the case against Kanu.

 

However, despite acknowledging and admitting these wrongdoing by the federal government against Kanu, the Supreme Court in its ill-delivered verdict, reversed the due judgment and remanded Kanu back to the Department of State Services (DSS) dungeon without bail. This decision reeks of political interference and raises serious concerns about the independence of the judiciary in Nigeria.

 

The IPOB leadership's decision to withdraw every confidence from the Judiciary reflects their lack of confidence in the fairness and impartiality of the judicial process. It is a damning indictment of the Nigerian legal system and its failure to uphold justice and the rule of law.

 

In conclusion, this withdrawal of IPOB's interest is a stark reminder of the injustice that continues to plague Nigeria's legal system. Kanu's case is not just about him; it is about the fundamental principles of justice and fairness that should govern any democratic society. Until these principles are upheld, Kanu's trial will remain a symbol of the injustices that persist in Nigeria.

Genocidist Gowon Boasts Of Starting Annihilation War Against #Biafra; Very Unfortunate- IPOB

 Genocidist Gowon Boasts Of Starting Annihilation War Against #Biafra; Very Unfortunate- IPOB



IPOB PRESS RELEASE 

25/02/2024


The attention of the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the great and indefatigable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been drawn to the horrible but true confession of starting the genocidal war against Biafra by the former Military Head of State of Nigeria, Major General Yakubu Gowon. The genocidist Yakubu Gowon led the second bloodiest genocide after the Israeli Holocaust against Biafrans between 1967 and 1970. 


Recently, during a solidarity visit to President Tinubu, the genocidist, Yakubu Gowon, openly confessed to starting the genocidal war that they call a civil war against Ndigbo without shame. He equally confirmed that he was criticized for starting that war, yet he went ahead to commit the deadly genocide against Biafra Nation.


Below, we have identified the main betrayers in the Middle Belt's present crisis who dine with the Fulanis to kill their own people and have promised them part of Middle Belt land, especially in Plateau state the Gowon's Indigenous state:


1. Gen Yakubu Gowon. Pankshin local government area 


2. Sen. Simon Lalong.. Shendam LGA


3. Hon Rufus Bature.. B/Ladi LGA 


4. Hon Dandere.. Gyel 


5. Hon Dr Danladi Atu.. Jos North


6. Hon Isa SONG.. B/Ladi


7. AC. Pam Dung..B/Ladi


Yukubu Gowon, a murderer was used by Britain and the Fulani Caliphate to massacre millions of Biafrans and starve millions of Biafran children to death in an avoidable war between 1967 and 1970. The genocidists agenda was to wipe out Biafrans from the surface of the earth, but Chukwu Okike Abiama disappointed them. Today, Biafrans have moved on and prospered against all economic and developmental odds to the envy of Nigerians. Despite the depopulation agenda against Biafra through many years of pogroms and the civil war of genocide, today, the Biafra population is the highest among all the nations yoked together in their one-Nigeria 


If Nigeria doubts the population strength of Biafra, we challenge them to conduct a digitalized population census. 


The genocidist Gowon, through the British support, mobilized many world powers and fought against Biafra. The war of annihilation went on for three years against the small new Nation of Biafra. By the grace of Chukwu Okike Abiama, our heroes withstood their war of annihilation for three (3) years without foreign support. We are not surprised that an unrepentant and unapologetic war criminal, Yakubu Gowon, can still boldly boast of his genocidal actions against Biafra. In other sane nations, war criminals like Gowon are serving life imprisonment sentences for their part in genocide. But Nigeria is a nation that rewards criminals, terrorists, and treasurey looters while punishing FREEDOM FIGHTERS and human rights activists. 


As other genocidists in Nigeria, Gowon is galavanting and glorifying himself for massacring millions of Biafran men, women, and children. His home state is under the occupation of terrorists and bandits today, but that is not his concern. The genocide he masterminded against Biafrans has visited his people. Fulani bandits and terrorists have taken over and renamed some of the villages  in Tiv nation while Gowon is watching helplessly like the slave that he is. God has preserved Gowon to witness the same genocide he perpetrated against Biafrans. Fortunately, no inch of Biafran land was taken over by the Nigeria State during the bloody civil war. But Yakubu Gowon and his people have already lost some areas of their own land to Fulani conquerors and jihadists. And if care is not taken, the entire Middle Belt will be conquered by the Sokoto Fulani  Caliphate. We don't wish that happens because of the innocent people of the Middle Belt even though we despise the unrepentant Genocidist Gowon and his fellow Nigerianists' actions against Biafrans.


We commend our eternal leader, Chief Dim, Odumegwu Ojukwu whether dead or alive, and other Biafra heroes and heroines for resisting the bloody genocide against Biafrans led by the genocidist, Gowon. By the special grace of Eze Chukwu Okike Abiama, this generation of Biafrans will finish the struggle and restore Biafra Independence. There is nothing people like war criminal Gen. Yakubu Gowon and company can do about it.

IGBOPHOBIA: Why Aare Kurunmi's Rating Of Easterners Is Out Of An Assessment Marred With Cynicism

IGBOPHOBIA: Why Aare Kurunmi's Rating Of Easterners Is Out Of An Assessment Marred With Cynicism


Recently, a rather controversial and arguably illogical piece has been in circulation on various social media networks. And, the content is as usual, nothing less of what has constantly obtained; a jab at the Igbo nation and the South Eastern region, starring from the uproar and discontentment of various dissidents in the western and northern parts of Nigeria over the unbearable economic hardship that has enveloped the enclave, and the subsequent mysterious refusal to the bewilderment and disappointment of those who dearly crave their workforce to achieve their desired goal. 


By invoking past memories and encounters, the East have opted to maintain strategic ambivalence and allow the North, West handle the crisis "they brought upon everyone". And, from the forgoing has this acclaimed Pan-Yoruba activist called Aare Kurunmi Kakanfo decided to continue throwing tantrums against the Igbos and accusingly positing that they would start another war in Nigeria.


In his view, the West (Yoruba) would never politically align with the East - as that would imply the "total surrender of the political, economic, social control of the South West to the Igbos" and such would not be possible. Ironically, Mr. Aare is making these nettlesome remarks at a time the Igbos are maintaining silence and apathy in any national issue. 


For posterity sake, this obsession and fear-mongering of a "domineering Igbo devourers" has been in play since time immemorial and has always served as an easy-to-use card for whosever decides to deploy their ignorant peasants against the bogeymen while advertently and distractively keeping them peasants in perpetual hunger and misery. 


Either from the days of the Sarduana of Sokoto, Sir Ahmadu Bello or Dr. Obafemi Awolowo up till the contemporary moment, the Igbos have always served as the perfect frightening objects or rather subjects, for the tactical, selfish politicial games of the ruling class. And, this has not changed nor is it expected to.


The Igbos in contrast to another ethnic make-up in Nigeria – and by admission of independent international sources, have evidently invested more in the Nigerian project without demanding for any extraordinary favor in return. If history serves right, the first and Igbo man to assume or contest a significant political position outside the East, was Nnamdi Azikiwe - who is regarded as one of the founding fathers and Pro-independent activists of the British amalgamated Nigeria, and this was when he contested for the premiership of the West and eventually lost or rather was kicked out by tribal jingoists led by his erstwhile comrade, Chief Awolowo.


It is important to emphasize that the actions of Azikiwe was ultimately influenced by the sentiments, purpose and promise of the Nigeria they ostensibly fought for; a Nigeria of pragmatic regionalism but with Federal characteristics devoid of tribalism and nepotism. Clearly, his detractors were not on the same page with him, thus he was roundly kicked out and he came back home to lick his wounds.


On the Economic level, the Igbos have mobilized and invested in immense proportion in other regions of Nigeria, even to the detriment of the development of the East, their homebase. They live amongst the community of wherever they are found, contribute to the development of the community and pay their tax as legitimate citizens and residents of where they are domiciled. The investments worth billions of dollars of Igbos are littered across western and Northern Nigeria, while later are recalcitrant to do same in the East.


The Igbo man has not fermented, sponsored funded any political party, candidate - either within the SouthEast or outside- for the sole benefit of himself, enterprises. However, he has exercise his constitutional rights to harbor a political will and not be intimidated to express it, and this he has done not from a tribalistic viewpoint, instead on meritocratic basis. And if that is what Mr. Aare Kakanfo refers to being "meddlesome", then he needs to be schooled about the entailments of the Nigerian constitution.


Admittedly, it is unarguable that there is an unsolvable fundamental ideological difference between not only the East and West, but inclusively the North. The incompatibility is glaring enough that all can see it. And, since Mr. Aare obviously believes that the Igbos needs to keep to the east, he should shun the hypocritical rhetorics of another Civil war and join campaign for the expulsion and exit of the East from Nigeria and even ban Easterners from visiting and travelling to Nigeria (then it would be essentially the west's and north's).


Igbos are not only in the deceptive "South East geopolitical zone" and cannot be reduced to such. The man who led the infamous January 15th 1966 mutiny vilely called "Igbo coup" - which was primarily about saving Yoruba land from an impending takeover by the ultranationalist Fulani warlord, Sir Ahmadu Bello and enthroning Chief Awolowo as president, is from okpanam present-day Delta State - though it is now assumed to be no longer part of the Igbo nation. 


It is an insult to human intelligence, and it is only Brain-wrecked individuals and people would accept such a travesty. Not after the serial pogroms and Genocidal war that claimed the lives of over 3.5 million people (mostly children), not after the massacres of every male child in Asaba. Not after the" shoot everything that moves" order and "if the Biafra children must die first, then it is just too bad" euphoria by Benjamin Adekunle AKA black scorpion.


The East, the Igbos remains unapologetic for being who they are; for their economic wittiness, for being meritocratic, hardworking and resistant to oppression, for being true Pan-Africanist. Nevertheless, they have decided to maintain strategic ambivalence and that shall continue until the desired result is achieved. 


In summary, the Igbos have paid heavily in their course and adventure of unfortunately finding their selves in a British amalgamated Nigeria. They owe nothing, rather those who killed, starved their children to death, stole their hard-earned money in the banks and gave them £20 to fizzle away,3 are those who owe them and will surely pay in folds when the time comes.


The East never asked for war nor did they started the Nigeria-Biafra war, as lately admitted by the Chief genocidist, Yakubu Gowon to the hearing of the global community. However, as always, the East reserves the right to defend themselves against aggression and threats of extermination as obtained 57 years ago. Self-defense is a natural right and all people are entitled to it. Those fanning the flames of war should be guided and advocate for the peaceful desolation of Nigeria.

A Rebuttal to Aare Kurunmi Kakanfo's Allegations Against the Igbos

A Rebuttal to Aare Kurunmi Kakanfo's Allegations Against the Igbos


This is a reply to some statements attributed to Aare Kurunmi Kakanfo, a pan-Yoruba activist concerning the Igbo people in Nigeria. In his statements there are numerous misconceptions and misrepresentations that warrant clarification. Kakanfo's assertions paint an inaccurate and unfair picture of the Igbo people's aspirations and intentions within the Nigerian federation. It is essential to address these misconceptions and provide a more nuanced perspective on the Igbo people's desires and contributions to Nigeria's socio-political landscape.


First, Kakanfo's statement suggests that the Southwest and Southeast regions of Nigeria cannot align politically unless the Southwest surrenders control to the Igbos. This assertion is misleading and ignores the complexities of Nigeria's political dynamics. Mr Kakanfo and others who may be sharing similar perspective should understand that the Igbo people like persons of any other ethnic groups in Nigeria, have legitimate right to aspire for political representation and influence without the need for any region to surrender control.


Secondly, Kakanfo's claim that the Southwest desire a Nigeria where its resources and taxes will be used solely for the development of Yorubaland oversimplifies the Southwest's political aspirations. The Southwest, like other regions, seeks a Nigeria where resources are equitably distributed, and all regions benefit from national resources for their development.


Kakanfo's assertion that the Igbo people want to dictate how other regions are governed and claim rights beyond their traditional homeland is a misrepresentation. The Igbo people, like all Nigerians, seek a Nigeria where every citizen is free to pursue their aspirations without discrimination or marginalization. The desire for political representation does not equate to a desire to dominate or impose one's will on others.


Additionally, Kakanfo's characterization of the Igbo people as constantly complaining and turning themselves into opposition in non-Igbo states is unfair. The Igbo people, like other ethnic groups, have the right to express their grievances and seek redress within the confines of the law. Painting them as perpetual complainers overlooks the legitimate grievances that many Igbo people have faced over the years.


It is also misleading to suggest that the Igbo people seek to impose their cultural and political preferences on other ethnic groups. The Igbo people, like all Nigerians, value diversity and understands the importance of respecting the cultural and political differences of others. Any suggestion to the contrary is a misrepresentation of their intentions.


In conclusion, Aare Kurunmi Kakanfo's statements regarding the Igbo people are based on misconceptions and misrepresentations. The Igbo people, like all Nigerians, seek a Nigeria where every citizen is treated fairly and have equal opportunities to pursue their aspirations. It is essential to debunk these misconceptions and promote a more inclusive and understanding approach to Nigeria's diversity.

Biafrans Be Wise; Hunting And Noise Never Goes In Unison

Biafrans Be Wise; Hunting And Noise Never Goes In Unison



This period in which we are is so very critical and such that require utmost consciousness.  It is a time we watch several shocking events unfold with such a speed of light that one must be strategically positioned in order to remain in touch and control of situations and their possible outcomes in his pathway. 


Following the recent general hardship ravaging Nigerian, orchestrated by the daily skyrocketing cost of living, we have witnessed that it appears the effects is telling more on some regions in the country where protests and strikes have begun. With North and South West bearing heavily the effects of the hardship, South - East have witnessed a minimal effect of its own share on the Easterners. This have led to what appears as though some Easterners are making mockery of the situation, while the North and West are cunningly pleading for East to join them in protest against the government of Ahmed Bola Tinubu, a Southwesterner.


However, it is important to note that since over five (5) decades ago, Easterners have been maneuvering economic strangulation policies from both Western and Northern cabals ruling the Nigeria. It is palpable to understand that the effect of the current realities in Nigeria is not going to have heavy blows on Easterners due to their harsh economic survival instincts and skills developed over the years of deliberate marginalization and injustices. This in ironical disposition explains why the mockery celebrations from some quarters are urging the situation in the country.


Suffice to say, Easterners must understand that as bush hunters in the Nigerian State, we must remain calm, with absolute decorum, move with consistency without unnecessary attractions and distractive noises. This is because with our calmness, we would not be distracted easily by the twilight of events that shapes the struggle we are in. We would be able to decipher what we want out of the situation at hand. Carefulness and propriety is expected of us in this trying time. We should not aggravate or endanger ourselves, interests and properties, out of exuberances.


This calls for avoidance of unnecessary attractions and distractions as seen in the unwarranted mockery celebrations going on in various parts of Igboland and on social media. These noises could get us loose focus on the ball, and or indirectly fuel another level of Igbophobic agenda against our people outside the East. As the tension and polity in Nigeria is eagerly searching for avenue to prey on the East as scapegoat.


The present ugly situation in the Zoo(Nigeria) is preparing Biafrans towards reaching our goal. Therefore, we should be smart enough not to jeopardize our positions and interests now or ever. As hunting and noise making does not go together, Biafrans in general should understand that we are encircled by events that tends to shape our struggle. At this moment, noise making will distract our focus, prolong our hunting time in the bush. It will be wisdom for us not to create noises by ourselves, rather we should utilize the quietness or noisiness already in the bush to hit our target unscathed.


At the end, it shall all end in praises, but we must be wise.

IPOB-DOS: A Testament Of Effective Leadership and Commitment

IPOB-DOS: A Testament Of Effective Leadership and Commitment


In the Biafran people's quest for self-determination and restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra, the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) movement have remained at the forefront in championing the cause with unwavering dedication and resilience. Central to the success and strategic direction of IPOB is the Directorate of State(DOS), under the capable heading of Mazi Chika Edoziem.

DOS, the governing body of IPOB serves as the nerve center for planning, coordination, and execution of the movement's activities. Under the guidance of Mazi Chika Edoziem and other intelligible personalities of uncompromising struggle commitments, the DOS have demonstrated exceptional leadership, strategic thinking, and organizational prowess, which have been instrumental in advancing the goals of the movement.

One of the hallmarks of the DOS' leadership is its commitment to transparency and accountability. The DOS have consistently kept the members of IPOB and the public duly informed about its activities, strategies, and progress that are appropriate for public consumption. This open approach has not only fostered trust and unity within the movement but has also garnered support and admiration from the wider Biafran community.

Another key strength of the DOS is its ability to adapt and innovate in the face of challenges. Despite facing numerous obstacles, including government repression and propaganda, the DOS have remained steadfast in its commitment to the Biafran cause. The DOS have leveraged technology and social media to amplify its message and reach a global audience, effectively countering the narratives of its detractors.

The success of the DOS would not be possible without the dedication and hard work of its members. Their commitment to the cause, often at great personal risk, is a testament to their unwavering belief in the righteousness of the Biafran struggle.

The Directorate of State(DOS) of IPOB, headed by Mazi Chika Edoziem, deserves commendation for its outstanding efforts in advancing the cause of Biafra. Through effective leadership, strategic thinking, and unwavering commitment, the DOS have set a shining example for other liberation movements around the world. As we salute the DOS and its members, let us also reaffirm our commitment to the ultimate goal of a free and sovereign state of Biafra.
