UPDATE OF THE IPOB RALLY IN EKWULOBIA WITH MAZI NNAMDI KANU ON THIS DAY 20TH AUGUST, 2017

UPDATE OF THE IPOB RALLY IN EKWULOBIA WITH MAZI NNAMDI KANU ON THIS DAY 20TH AUGUST, 2017

Report by Ogochukwu Nnanna
For Family Writers Press

IPOB and her indefatigable leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu took the Bull by its horn after the threat by Willie Obiano and his Hausa Fulani Nigeria military to disrupt the gathering that was scheduled to hold today following the previous shooting on the 16th of August, when IPOB proposed to hold the rally. The governor of Anambra state in collaboration with the Nigerian military warned IPOB to stay clear from the state and shun the idea of holding any rally in Ekwulobia, but IPOB as popularly known does not succumb to threats and has remained resolute and fearless in this quest of Biafra restoration. However, irrespective of those threats and warnings the gathering still held today with millions of Biafrans in attendance. To crown it all, the arrowhead of this movement Mazi Nnamdi kanu arrived the event ground fearlessly and determined with great number of Biafrans. The entire Ekwulobia indigenes stood still and gave our leader a kingship and honorably welcome. I must confess, today's event is the mother of all IPOB gathering so far witnessed since the campaign and awareness for the boycott of every election in Biafraland as directed by the leadership of IPOB.

Biafrans of all ages, men, women and children came out in their millions to stand in solidarity with our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Biafrans have been sacrificing a lot to honour every rally called by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, unlike what is obtainable in Nigeria, where politicians pay huge amount of money to mobilise people to honour their call for any gathering but Mazi Nnamdi Kanu paid nothing to Biafrans to answer his calls for a gathering or rally not minding the distance or risks involved, yet they would come out in their millions to honour him. This is because he is a true leader who is embedded with honesty and truth and is always ready and disposed to telling his followers absolute truth without minding who it hurts.


To Biafrans, the leader they have been longing for, they have seen in Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and they are ever ready to make all necessary sacrifice in making sure he gets the needed support to restore Biafra. Mazi Nnamdi kanu is a leader who stands by his words, he has never failed his people and has no intention of failing them.

However, based on the lies that the channel TV has been peddling against our leader Mazi Nnamdi kanu, that he has lifted the ban on the boycott of Anambra state election during the meeting he had with the self- styled Igbo leaders, I can tell you that today at EKWULOBIA, Nnamdi kanu has reiterated his stance again and again that election will not hold in Anambra state come 18th November, 2017. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) was live and direct in EKWULOBIA, Anambra state today 20th day of August, 2017 and he has said it to the hearing of the whole world that his stance on the boycott of Anambra state election remains unchanged and uncontestable.

He maintained that unless a date for referendum is given, Biafrans are not going to participate in any Nigerian election again and the indigenes of Ekwulobia were  there today to also say that they are in support of "No election in Anambra" till a date for Biafra referendum is given. It was on this backdrop that we all agreed that anybody who comes out to vote on the day of Anambra governorship election will have him/herself to blame and will automatically run to Hausa Fulani land up North.

Go and Tell Obiano That Am Coming To Ekwulobia To Continue The Election Boycott Campaign - Nnamdi Kanu

Go and Tell Obiano That Am Coming To Ekwulobia To Continue The Election Boycott Campaign - Nnamdi Kanu

By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi
For Family Writers Press


Since the call for the boycott of all Nigerian election in Biafraland was declared by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), many untold evils have befallen the good people of Anambra state. From the Ozubulu Church massacre that Governor Willie Obiano and Nigeria police suspiciously quick to term drug war, to the Assemblies of God Church shooting in Onitsha that left one police man and a civilian dead. The good people of Anambra have suffered immeasurably all because of APC led Nigerian government's desperate move to continue keeping Biafrans marginalized in the contraption called Nigeria. Governor Obiano in collaboration with the APC led federal government have been trying tooth and nail to truncate the call by IPOB for Biafrans to boycott all subsequent Nigerian election in Biafraland that will foster the unimpeded actualization of Biafra via an internationally monitored referendum.

Recently, IPOB had their peaceful rallies in many states in Biafraland with little or no military and police attack or molestation, until IPOB and her leader thought it wise to visit Ekwulobia in Anambra State. It is on record that on 16th August, 2017, governor Willie Obiano sent a combine team of police and military men to disrupt IPOB rally in Ekwulobia, where unarmed Biafrans awaiting the arrival of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu were teargased and shot at with live bullets leaving scores with life threatening injuries. This attack and many others have never deterred or dampen the resolve of Biafrans to restoring Biafra under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Tomorrow being 20th August all Biafrans from different works of life  will throng the streets of Ekwulobia with IPOB leader to continue the gospel of Biafra restoration.

However, the resent distortion of news and misinformation championed by channel TV shows Obiano and APC led government resolve to scuttle our call for election boycott. We will not let the evil plans of governor Willie Obiano, who has joined hands with Hausa-Fulani jihadist government to materialise. We are determined and still maintain our stance on the election boycott in Anambra state come 18th November, 2017. Worthy of note, IPOB has never threatened to distrust any election, IPOB never promised to withdraw any threat to disrupt any election because  we all know that what does not exist can not be withdrawn. IPOB however, only called on every Biafran to boycott all Nigerian election in Biafraland starting with Anambra state election. We all know that IPOB would have done same thing had it been the election is in another state in Biafraland, therefore, the issue is not about a particular state that is involve but for the sake of Biafra restoration. It is about the call for Biafra referendum, it is about freedom, about putting a stop to long aged marginalization, injustice and inequality the Nigerian state has bathed Biafrans with for over a hundred years and counting. It is also about saying no to environmental degradation caused by oil spillage and halting the manace of Fulani herdsmen. Election boycott is what we are asking for and we want to take our destinies into our own hands. As for those that are in doubt, a call for election boycott is a civil disobedience. It is not a crime and not in any way a call for war. It has been used by many indigenous people struggling for freedom and most of these indigenous people are today flourishing independent nations. Biafrans have decided to join the league of flourishing independent nations through self determination with referendum as a panacea.

Therefore, whoever that knows Willie Obiano should go and tell him that IPOB is coming to Anambra state and Ekwulobia in particular to continue the campaign for election boycott because Biafra is here to stay and no going back.

We are formidable

BIAFRA: WHY UNITY IS SUPREME

BIAFRA:  WHY UNITY IS SUPREME


By Agha Egwu
Published by Family Writers Press

You see no one can be perfect, and Nnamdi Kanu is no exception.  As much as I love him as a person, and admire the great work he has done in building Radio Biafra, and IPOB, there are many things I am not sure of, and even things I dislike.  To say I follow him blindly is a big lie, but there is a reason why I will support everything Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB do, because in the long run I really have little choice in the matter.

Let me explain.  Let us assume that Nnamdi Kanu is a goat.  A very courageous goat but like a goat, not very intelligent, I will still follow him.  The reason is simple.  For all the other brilliant people I see, none, and I mean none, has the courage to inspire millions of Igbos and non-Igbos to stand up to the Hausa – Fulani Islamist Jihadist hegemony that has befallen the country today.

That is why I follow Nnamdi Kanu
And IPOB because…
Unity is Supreme
Unity is our dream
Unity is formidable
A fortress impregnable.

You see there are some things I do not like about Nnamdi Kanu and there are some decisions that I disagree with, but I do not assume that I am more intelligent than the whole of IPOB that made that decision.  After all, in democracy, for it to work, the minority always disagrees with the majority, but the minority must suspend their own beliefs and key in with the majority.

There are people that have a wrong-headed sense of themselves as superior.  People like Charlie Boy, Jim Iyke, Mbe Nwaniga, Kelechi Deca, Joe Igbokwe, the elders of Ohaneze and the Governors of the South-East States.  You see they do not have the guts to defend their people, and yet they disparage the only person who has the guts.  Some think they have guts until Hausa Fulani chase them out of Wuse Market.  Some, like Mbe Nwaniga and Kelechi Deca are really very nice people, but who have wrong-headed idealistic notions that refuse to appreciate the violent underbelly and irreconcilable ideologies that make Nigeria impossible.

That is why I follow Nnamdi Kanu
And IPOB because…
Unity is Supreme
Unity is our dream
Unity is formidable
A fortress indisputable.

So even if Nnamdi Kanu is just a courageous goat, with no good sense of reasoning, all we should do is for all those brilliant people to surround Nnamdi Kanu, the courageous but not very intelligent goat, to take the bullets for them and we all still forge forward.  Look at how silly Charlie Boy looked racing away from Wuse Market.  Compare it with how formidable Nnamdi looked when he stepped out of his vehicle and walked towards the Ebonyi Police checkpoint, with thousands behind him.  The police barrier melted as they reversed their vehicles out of the way.  Was it just spiritual force?  Or did they, the police know or fear that if they tried pim, they will hear nwiiii?

Now imagine Charlie Boy and Jim Iyke walking side by side with Nnamdi facing another checkpoint with a multitude of diehard IPOB peaceful warriors, standing resolutely behind them.  Imagine if Ohaneze elders have the guts to join Nnamdi in the march.  Then, imagine any of the cowardly Governors rolling out a red carpet for Nnamdi and shouting at the top of his voice, “Nigeria, this is our son, in whom we are well pleased.”  Imagine if Pat Utomi brought his cerebral mind behind IPOB.  Imagine! Imagine!  Nnamdi is only a battering ram for Igbos and non-Igbos that want to flee Nigeria.  He needs social economic planners for the new Biafra.  Gather around him.  Fill up the empty spaces with good plans.  You cannot do what he is doing to shake the pillars of the Status Quo, but it is still better for you to join than stand apart and scoff.   Imagine how powerful our unity would become.  Unfortunately, their egos are so far refusing to allow them, as they mock that small boy with his ‘miscreants’ like me.  In their great learning, their foolishness would not let them see a picture bigger than themselves.

That is why I follow Nnamdi Kanu
And IPOB because…
Unity is Supreme
Unity is our dream
Unity is formidable
A fortress incontestable.

But let us assume that Nnamdi Kanu was even less intelligent than a goat, but still had all this courage and spiritual force; and let us even accept that he may even fail.  I will still follow him and struggle with him to succeed, simply because there is no one else out there willing to stand up with spiritual force, without violence, to bring down the walls of Jericho.  Charlie Boy tried and ran.  Who else biko.  I see the gentle, soft spoken unassuming man, that carries no airs, but when he speaks with power, he thunders like a lion, a tiger whose roar sends shivers to all those who hate truth.  I see a man of courage who fears no one.  Who tells the truth and calls the enemy of the people what they are.  And then people say he is abusing, they call it hate speech, when what he has done is give a perfect description of evil.  If you describe the evil in someone, it is NOT an abuse.


It is simply a description.  Nnamdi Kanu does not abuse. He honestly describes.

Some people say that he is like Hitler and will soon bring violence.  They say that this is how Boko Haram started.  No!  I do not see that at all.  They point at his recent Biafra Security Services and exclaim he is armed.  Yet, BSS is an unarmed group, that has been set up to protect us from the extreme hate groups of Fulani Herdsmen because we are surrounded by a Fulani-led Army and Police that seem to be complicit in our mass murder.  What I see in Nnamdi Kanu is a Gandhi, Martin Luther King or Mandela.  And even if he was a Hitler in the making, in so far as there is no alternative, then I will follow him, and if he proves to be a Hitler, we will deal with him like the World dealt with Hitler.  But even if he was Hitler, what is really the difference between being ruled by a Jihadist Demon and a Nazi Devil?  I will certainly take a chance, and hope he is an angel rather than a devil, than remain yoked to a known demon.

That is why I follow Nnamdi Kanu
And IPOB because…
Unity is Supreme
Unity is our dream
Unity is formidable
A fortress indefatigable.

Yes, there are many reasons why I think I know better than IPOB, just like many Facebook Vuvuzelas, who with their 200 likes and comments think they are champions of social media and qualify to tell Nnamdi what to do.  There are some of the IPOB decisions which I think is just crazy.  But you know what?  They are in good company.  When Gandhi, the father of Indian Independence, told his fellow campaigners that they will bear no arms in fighting the British Raj, they all thought he was mad.  So, during one demonstration the British army blocked their path.  There were thousands of them.

They simply stood at attention.  And one at a time they will walk up to the army who would clobber the person.  As one fell, another walked forward without fear.  After some days, the trigger happy British soldiers, not having the joy of killing Indian coolies, got tired of clobbering innocents that filled up their prisons.  The World watched as these brutal soldiers beat up defenceless civilians who offered no resistance.  Eventually, out of shame, the soldiers gave up and gave way.  Gandhi’s victory made world-wide headlines.  The people stood in awe of Gandhi.  That was what Nnamdi did at the police checkpoint in Ebonyi State.  I urge you all to try and watch the film Gandhi, so you can understand the genius behind the method of Civil Disobedience.  As Gandhi defeated the British Raj morally, the people lined up behind him.  What mattered most was their Unity.

That is why I follow Nnamdi Kanu
And IPOB because…
Unity is Supreme
Unity is our dream
Unity is formidable
A fortress indomitable.

Reverend Martin Luther King did even more stupid things.  A black guy was forced out of a restaurant for whites only.  So, Martin Luther King organised a long line of thousands of blacks who waited patiently in queues that went around the block.  Each one will enter and go and sit and request to be served.  That one will be beaten and the police would pick the person up.  The World was watching.  Then as soon as one goes down, another follows.  The local jail got filled with hundreds of blacks.  People avoided the restaurant.  Eventually the owner gave up and started serving the blacks.  Other restaurants wised up as similar actions spread nationwide and that ended whites-only restaurants in the USA.  As Reverend King defeated the White Supremacists morally, the people lined up behind him.  What mattered most was their Unity.

Think of the stupid Mandela.  The silly goat had an option to renounce violence and have a reduced sentence.  Now his case was that of pretence violence, for they only blew up installations and always warned people out of the way.  In the end, their violence was all mouth.  For all practical purposes, Mandela and ANC were non-violent.  To ordinary people like me, who thought we knew better, these masters of Civil Disobedience protests, Gandhi, King and Mandela, took decisions we thought only a goat could think of, but which turned out to be master strokes of genius.  As Mandela defeated apartheid morally, the people lined up behind him.  What mattered most was their Unity.

That is why I follow Nnamdi Kanu
And IPOB because…
Unity is Supreme
Unity is our dream
Unity is formidable
A fortress undoubtable.

There are many who are scattering our unity because they believe the Nigerian Press such as Channels TV, Internet sites and many Newpapers such as Nation, Punch and even the Sun that belongs to one of our sons, the disappointing, Orji Uzor Kalu.  They mess up the minds of both Nigerians and Biafrans.  Some think IPOB is a cult of personality and dictatorial.  I laugh.  Was Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Mandela, not cults of personality and dictatorial?  Did it stop them from achieving objectives?  It WAS actually necessary because Independence movements and freedom fighting do not succeed as democracies.  For those who say he is being worshiped, was Gandhi not worshipped?  He was venerated in his life time by the superstitious, and was even thought of as a god in polytheistic India.

For those who say he is called Supreme Leader was Gandhi not an absolute Supreme Leader?  Nyerere was called Mwalimu, the great teacher. Mandela was called Madiba, the Great Leader.  They all had absolute authority.  Whatever they said was carried out immediately, not because they ordered, but because the people loved them so much they just wanted to do what would make them happy.  Did we not once honour Zik that way with Zik of Africa?  Have we not worshipped Ojukwu more, driven by an intense sense of gratitude?  Nnamdi Kanu is like that.  Did he not accept these praises and move on with his great work of liberation?  That Nnamdi is worshipped by a superstitious few does not mean Nnamdi thinks its true, but like Gandhi he just lets them be and focuses on his objective?

That is why I follow Nnamdi Kanu
And IPOB because…
Unity is Supreme
Unity is our dream
Unity is formidable
A fortress unbeatable.

However, although he is called Supreme Leader, decisions in IPOB are democratic and collegiate amongst its leaders with widespread consultation.  Leadership of an Independence struggle for Freedom is hardly ever by democracy.  It is usually by leaders who feel compelled in spirit, called upon to bring freedom to their people. The same is true for all struggles for Freedom. Can you imagine Gandhi, Martin Luther King or Mandela being removed by democratic vote from their struggle? The dangers of electing the wrong person in such struggles is too high and would destroy the struggle.  Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Mandela were leaders whose words were law, because the people wanted it so, yet they were such strong leaders they never abused it, always taking decisions with their leadership through wise and wide consultation. Nnamdi Kanu is like that.

That is why I follow Nnamdi Kanu
And IPOB because…
Unity is Supreme
Unity is our dream
Unity is formidable
A fortress unshakeable

Yet, there are still many of us who think they know better out of sheer ignorance about the Civil Disobedience method, but they will not accept they are ignorant.  A very good example include those who cannot understand that completely boycotting Anambra elections is a master stroke of Civil Disobedience genius.  I urge you all to read about Gandhi and Reverend King and Civil Disobedience, so Nnamdi Kanu can stop appearing weird to you.  Let me use myself as an example.  I disagreed with Anambra State election boycott initially.  Like most ordinary people, I thought it was best for IPOB to field candidates to win.  However, I was committed to submitting myself to IPOB unity because UNITY IS SUPREME.  I did not want to be one of those who do not have the discipline to subsume their preferences to the greater body fighting for Biafra independence.

This led me to start thinking of why Kanu and IPOB should do such a crazy thing.  The proof of the pudding is in the eating.  When we all did the sit at home on Memorial Day, it’s impact was really shocking.  Imagine such a thing on election day.  Its power will be earth quaking throughout Nigeria and the international community.  But if we see lots of people at the voting booth it will do damage to the image of IPOB.  However, the bigger damage would be for IPOB to use its power to contest elections and get rigged out by INEC, because they will NEVER allow IPOB people to win elections.

However, because I was committed to the principle of formidable UNITY, I finally opened my eyes and saw the brilliance of the IPOB boycott.  Our target now is to make it as near to total as possible.  A Governor would still be elected, as some people would still vote, but empty polling booths will tell a devastating tale.  Obiano would probably be returned to power, but he is neither worse nor better than the APC or PDP candidate.  Who wins is irrelevant for Biafra.  It is how big, the boycott, that matters.

I also do not mind Nnamdi being called Supreme Leader.  It makes people think of Megalomania.  However, many of the members of IPOB feel they need to accord him that.  Afterall, members of Churches call their pastors, mamas and papas and all kinds of ‘megalomaniac’ names.  Its built into the Nigerian DNA it seems.  Russell Bluejack went before Nnamdi Kanu and fell on his knees.  He said he felt compelled, even though Nnamdi resisted it.

I do not like the way some people seem to worship him without condemnation or open rebuke from him.  But the truth is that in a superstitious society, people are bound to convert extraordinary achievers into demigods.  Zik in his hey days was once a god.  He was said to have such powers that he locked up the mammywater of River Niger in a bottle.  We were so superstitious as children, WE BELIEVED IT!  We worshipped him.  Gandhi was worshipped too


He found it amusing but he let them be because he understood their need to bow before him.  I can only hope that Nnamdi is like Gandhi.

I do not like all this Jewish business in Biafra.  It confuses and makes Christians think its blasphemy against Christ and losing us support even amongst our own people.  I believe that religion should be a private matter.  I think that the idea of Igbos being ethnic Jews is farfetched but nothing wrong with being a converted Jew.  However, I do think that a large number of Jews, fleeing persecution, settled in Igbo land and we borrowed many of the cultures they brought, including democracy, priest-kings, circumcision and seven-year apprenticeship in trade.  This probably means some Igbos have Jewish DNA in them.

The most important thing is that most religions are pure superstition.  Catholics think that Mary is the Mother of God, an idea that protestants find blasphemous.  However, if you tell a Christian that they turned a man to God they will reject you.  But we do know that Rastafarians did turn a man, Emperor Haille Selassie of Ethipoia, into God.  Given that all religions have their myths or weirdness, I am not bothered about the religion of Nnamdi Kanu and those who want to follow him into the Jewish faith.  They could be Hindus or Buddhists for all I care.  Any religion, except for Jihadists in Islam, are welcome.

So, having spewed all my negatives about Nnamdi, what is my overall assessment of him?  Like I said, even if Nnamdi was a goat, with such resolute courage, I will still follow him, because there is no other alternative in a sea of Efulefu leaders and fearful elders, willing to sell our birthrights even to the lowest bidder.  However, I have news for you.  Nnamdi Kanu, is no goat.  His negatives are insignificant compared to his outstanding positives.  He is one of the most cerebral, most courageous, most considerate men I know.  He is an extraordinary leader, manager, administrator and mobiliser of men and resources.  If you doubt me, go and set up your own world-wide radio and TV and get millions of people to follow you.

Do not think I have always felt like that.  The first time I heard him on Radio, I was repelled by his caustic tongue, as he called politicians what they were without mincing words.  Why should we mince words when we want to call a mass murderer or a thief by what they do?  Such people should be blamed, shamed and tamed.  I slowly came to realise that Kanu was not abusing but describing these people exactly as they are.  I also came to realise, after forcing myself to listen to Radio Biafra, that Kanu is sacrificial, honest and loving. A powerful spiritual force emanates from him to dominate all those who come under the influence of his aura.  I am glad and relieved to have such a man as Igbo leader and that is why I line up behind him.

O yes, undoubtedly, Nnamdi Kanu is fallible as a human being and with the IPOB leadership can make mistakes, but let us close ranks and keep our mistakes in-house rather than blabbing it publicly.  Take for instance, the Anambra State election boycott, if it is a mistake, the fact that we would all boycott together would still be powerful and awesome, and send the unmistakable global message that Igbos want out of Nigeria.  However, if we went into elections and we fail, it will seriously dent the reputation of IPOB, which is not in our interest at all.  At this very point in our history, it is better for the Anambra Governorship elections to crash than for IPOBs reputation for formidability to be dented.  Anambra can be temporarily sacrificed today for our glory tomorrow as one of the modern industrial nations of the world, from which Anambra is poised to benefit the most.

The message is simple.  For us to succeed we must be UNITED.  To be UNITED we must carry the good news not only to the grass roots, but also to the Efulefus and fearful elders.  We must persuade even our Governors and elders to accept Nnamdi Kanu as an extraordinary leader of the Igbos, who is fighting for freedom for both Igbos and non-Igbos.  We must persuade, not just abuse.

Let us all unite and pursue one course.  If we boycott, let us all boycott.  If we make mistakes let all of us make that mistake, and even in that, doing it together will show a united front. The more united we are, the stronger and more formidable we are.  As Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB defeat Nigeria morally, the people will line up behind him.  What matters most is our Unity.

If we sail
Let us sail together.
If we fail
Let us fail together
If we think
Let us think together
If we sink
Let us sink together
If we fly
Let us fly together
And if we must die
Let us die together
Martyred for freedom
For we are no betters
Than millions in God’s Kingdom
That died to break our fetters.

And that is why I follow Nnamdi Kanu
And IPOB because…
Unity is Supreme
Unity is our dream
Unity is formidable

Unity is formidable…
Impregnable
Indisputable
Incontestable
Indefatigable
Indomitable
Undoubtable
Unbeatable
Unshakeable
A fortress unconquerable.

IPOB: THE TARADIDDLE AND FALSITY OF NIGERIAN MEDIA AND THE NEED TO RELY ON VERACIOUS BIAFRA MEDIA

THE TARADIDDLE AND FALSITY OF NIGERIAN MEDIA AND THE NEED TO RELY ON VERACIOUS BIAFRA MEDIA

By Nwafor Somtochukwu Aloysius
For Family Writers Press

The world must understand that reliable information or news can not be gotten from Nigerian media outlets, because the media is completely compromised, hence strictly obey and carries out the dictates and wishes of their task masters. To crown it all, the media is 99.9% owned by the Yorubas who are naturally inherent traitors, fraudsters, blackmailers, hypocrites, chronic back stabbers and hardcore cowards. We have to live with the incontrovertible fact that the truth is far fetched from whatsoever information seen on Nigerian media outlets, be it in form of national dailies, print and electronic media. To rely on getting an accurate information or news from Nigerian media is the same as making a pathological liar a source of your information. Nigerian media is not independent, hence always succumb to the manipulations of their masters. Seeking information from Nigerian media is seeking for feeble, unverified and unsubstantial​ class of information. One remarkable phenomenon of Biafran media is that we reports' news the way it is, even when it indicts us. We are so much in love and fanatical about truth that is why we speak it not minding who it hurts.

In this part of the world called Nigeria; lies are patronized more than the truth, hence the cogent reason they are living in pretense and deceptions as a people. Let it be known that nothing is real about the media in Nigeria, it is just a conglomeration of falsehood and beguile. The people are totally misinformed and kept in the dark about the real situation of things in the said state. That is why lies and deceit has eaten deep into the fabrics of the Nigerian state that is now incurable.

It is awful and shockingly deleterious that media and journalism in Nigeria is completely devoid of integrity and trustworthy. Unarguably, the stuporous compromised Nigerian media is hell​ bent on spreading chronically falsified information and mere junks on daily basis to the masses. In the damnable contraption called Nigeria, information dissemination is controlled by heinous and pernicious politicians whose interest is to perpetually lock down the public in the dark and shielding the truth about their evil activities as regards to true happenings in the country. The media is paid to spread lies, promote character assassination, tribalism, the political interest of the bloody politicians and damage the images of the perceived enemies of the state. The media does not put into consideration the damages any information may cause to the public, or the f actuality of the information, rather spreads it wide as far as they have been hugely ​paid or have gotten a token of appreciation.

Media in Nigeria is a tool used for destruction of one another, and never a way of propagating and spreading truth to the general public. Nigerian media does not carry out investigative journalism, neither do they source for facts, they are only specialised in twisting and manipulation of information. In fact, inaccuracy is an understatement when referring to Nigerian media. Whenever an incidence involving a death toll or casualties happens in Nigeria, the exact figures are never reported by the media. For instance, if an Hausa-Fulani terror group known as Boko haram bombs and kills 100 persons, Nigerian media will only report 9 persons out of the hundred who actually died. It is hard to find blunder incorrectly used when referring to Nigeria media. That is exactly how the media in Nigeria reports news.

Withal, there is an unquenchable hatred that exists between the nations (Arewa, Oduduwa and Biafra) that were forcibly united in the contraption and British experiment called Nigeria which has continually yielded a disheartening results. In line with this, tribalism and egocentrism has always been displayed at it's peak since the creation of Nigeria by the bloody colonialist of the British extraction. This is the cogent reason the media in Nigeria is nothing to write home about. Whenever an information is coming from a particular tribe in Nigeria, its either twisted against or promoted in the favour of the tribe. Biafrans have always been the victims​ of the rancid Nigeria. Let it be known that Nigeria is created for the perpetual enslavement of Biafrans​. Nigerian media​ never promotes any good information about Biafrans but resiliently spread far and wide any incriminating information about Biafrans.

However, the continuous state sponsored crimes and wanton extermination of Biafrans in Nigeria has never been accurately reported by Nigerian media. The exact figures of the casualties has always been shielded and incorrectly reported. To further buttress the​ above assertion, the recent Ozubulu massacre in Anambra state Biafra land, where Hausa-Fulani militias invaded a church service and decimated not less than 50 persons (worshippers) is a clear example. This very terror attack which occurred in August 6th, 2017, was twisted by Nigerian media and linked to a fake story of a drug Barons who are having misunderstanding in South Africa which have resulted in the attack on innocent worshippers who knew nothing about the fake story. From the facts gathered by Family Writers Press International, a Biafran media outfit, has it that it is a state sponsored jihad attack carried out by the fourth deadliest terror group in the world.

Nigeria Media Method of Reportage: An Encouragement to Nigeria Forces To Shoot And Kill Biafra Activists

Nigeria Media Method of Reportage: An Encouragement to Nigeria Forces To Shoot And Kill Biafra Activists.


By Chima Chibueze
For Family Writers

Ever since the Biafra struggle for freedom started gaining momentum and into the consciousness of the man in the street, there is high influx of volunteers, as well as volunteer groups serving in different capacities of which the Media/writers and the security have been prominent since 2015. The writers offer mainly their writing skills; and the Security dedicate their lives. The young men and women in the Security are usually seen in the front line of rallies and are often the first to be hit whenever Nigeria armed forces open fire at the crowd.

Though the shootings by Nigeria forces are premeditated, they are encouraged by some extra motivations (like any other premeditated murder) which is: (i) the excuse to justify murder and, (ii) the conviction that there will be a proper cover; provided by pro-Nigeria media.

A critical look at the rundown of the ways the Nigerian media spur the country's armed forces to carry out extra-judicial violence on Biafrans reveals the following:

1. falsely labelling Biafra Security as “An Armed Group”.
Biafra Security Service (BSS) formed human shield
Ever since the first shooting of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) at Onitsha in August 2015 by the Nigeria navy and police force, the Nigeria Government has been trying very hard, but unsuccessfully, to push forward the narrative that the IPOB is a terrorist group courtesy of falsified news by the Nigeria media. A live video which went viral on the internet captured the Nigeria Police and her Army shooting sporadically at unarmed and defenceless group of IPOB at a school play ground in Aba in 2016, have proved the fact that IPOB is not a terrorist group, hence the ruling by the Federal High Court that the IPOB is legitimate.
However, neither the video (and subsequent videos) or the court ruling seems to stop the Nigeria police and the military from harassing IPOB.

The Nigeria media on the other hand, are bent on unleashing media assault on IPOB at any slightest opportunity through their constant exaggerations, continuous falsehood and public deceit due to misconceptions. The most recent of their falsehood is the launching of libelous campaign against IPOB claiming that the Biafra Security Services which was officially inaugurated on August 15th, is a Biafra army set up in preparation for a civil war. The truth of the matter is that the Biafra Security Service, like the parent IPOB, is totally pacifist.

Biafra Security Service (BSS)
Although it was officially inaugurated recently at Umuahia as the Biafra Security Service (BSS), it has been around as far back as 2015. Every IPOB family normally selects some young members to do the job of crowd control during rallies and evangelism. These are the young people you see interlocking arms in front of the crowd. They DO NOT carry any form of weaponry or warfare gadgets. Actually, what one could say of these security volunteers is that they are armed with God-given wit and the Biafra banner because of the neat and coordinated manner they maintain smooth crowd movements. If it were to be in a church, they would be called ushers or church wardens. As the Biafra struggle for freedom gains momentum in Biafra Land and due to the constant threat of violence by the Nigerian Government, the Biafran Security volunteers were tasked with identifying possible danger areas and guiding the crowd away from such areas and reconnaissance. Thus,  BSS are like watchers and scouts but not a militia. By deliberately and falsely calling IPOB volunteers a militia, what the Nigerian media is essentially telling the Nigerian government is “Come and shoot them up! We have made up enough excuses for you to kill them all!”


2. Spreading Fake Stories of Violence.
This is what the Nigerian media do in a bid to cover up the atrocities committed by the Nigeria Security Agents on Biafrans and eventually cast IPOB in a bad light, especially when there is an incident between IPOB and the Nigerian armed forces. The Nigeria media usually come up with a headline such as “IPOB members clashed with the police”, but the real twist about the fake stories is that they are always inconsistent with the statements by the police that is rather intent on absolving its officers of any kind of violence. Often times, these lies by the Nigeria media are not meant for the Nigeria masses as most Nigerians truly want the Biafran movement “crushed” by all means. Therefore, the target audience is the international readers, whose main sources of stories from Nigeria are of course inevitably the Nigerian media, whom the Nigerian media want to discourage from sympathising with Biafran activists.

Meanwhile, in the real world, IPOB members at the rallies are not allowed to confront the Nigerian Security Agents. As it is the duty of the Biafra Security to maintain and control an orderly and peaceful rally, they do not allow any Biafran to even deviate from the procession, much less allow any violence what so ever. The Biafra security volunteers form a sort of human barricade ahead of the crowd and sometimes encircle the crowd whenever the IPOB rally is confronted by the Nigeria Security Agents. This is the  reason why when ever the Nigeria Security agents shoot at the crowd, the Biafra security volunteers are always the first to be shot.

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Friday, met with the leadership of Ala Igbo Development Foundation, over the boycott order given by IPOB on Anambra election.

The meeting was held in Owerri, capital of Imo state. According IPOB leader, he decided to honour the invitation because of his respect for Igbo elders and that his struggle for the republic of Biafra was based on justice. Kanu briefly said: “I came because of my respect for elders.

IPOB is not a violent group. We are law abiding citizens of the society. “What we here today will guide us in the issue of Anambra election. I will go and meet with the leadership of IPOB.” In his speech, the President of Ala Igbo Development Foundation, Professor Uzodimma Nwala, said that it was the first meeting with the IPOB leader on the boycott order on Anambra guber.

Nwala said: “As you see in our midst, you see our brother Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, we have come to discuss the issue of mutual concern, especially on Anambra election. We are happy he is here with us. “As we know the IPOB decision on boycott of election and you know that IPOB is an orgarnised group and the agitations born out of marginalization of the Igbo. “We are glad he has explained to us the reason they issued the boycott order and that it is not his personal decision but that of the IPOB leadership.

We are meeting for the first time and will still meet again. No decision has been taken.” From left, President Ala Igbo Development Foundation, Prof. Uzodimma Iwuala, IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu and Dozie Ikedife, yesterday in a meeting in Owerri.

BIAFRA: THE WORLD SHOULD HOLD PROF OSINBAJO RESPONSIBLE IF ANYTHING HAPPENS TO NNAMDI KANU

BIAFRA: THE WORLD SHOULD HOLD PROF OSINBAJO RESPONSIBLE IF ANYTHING HAPPENS TO NNAMDI KANU

By Mazi Onyebuchi Eze

Judging by a reckless but dangerous statement credited to Nigeria Acting-President and Commander-in-Chief of Nigeria armed forces which is still forcefully occupying Biafra territories, where Prof Yemi Osinbajo said that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is wanted dead or alive, as contained in the publication made in the AITnews website on 17/8/2017, the world should hold the Acting-President and the cabals controling him in Aso Rock responsible should anything happen to Nnamdi Kanu any moment from now. In the publication of AITnews website under reference here, the Acting-President under the control of the Fulani cabals led Musa Lawal Daura lawlessly described peaceful IPOB people as terrorists whereas Prof Yemi Osinbajo has never open his mouth to condemn the general conducts of Arewa youths in recent times where they have continued threatening fire and brimstone on Igbos living in the north should they stay in north beyond October 1, 2017. Still in the publication, the Acting-President was making inflamatory comments against IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which will form basis for Nigeria security agencies to begin a renewed brutal crackdown on IPOB during peaceful rallies as it has started in Ekwulobia few days ago.

By this unguarded utterances capable of causing chaotic atmosphere in the land made by the Acting-President of Nigeria, the International Community and the world at large should hold Nigeria Acting-President responsible if anything happens to Nnamdi Kanu or his host of IPOB because Prof Yemi Osinbajo has declared an open war on IPOB in general and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in particular for committing no crime other than our unquenchable insistence on Biafra referendum. It is time for the world to compel Nigeria government to organize a referendum for Biafra to avoid a coming genocide on Biafrans by Nigeria government through its armed forces as already spoken by the Acting-President of Nigeria by saying that Nnamdi Kanu is wanted dead or alive as if Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is hiding or resisting arrest. However, it is important for the world to know that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is on bail granted him by Nigeria Federal High Court after being unlawfully detained by Nigeria government for the period of 18 Calendar months (October 2015 - April 2017) even against 2 court verdicts ordering his unconditional release after separate trial in Magistate Court and Federal High Court. It is also important to know that one of the bail conditions given to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu denied him access to qualitative medical check up abroad because Nigeria hospitals have no requisite facilities to give him the needed treatment. It is important to use this opportunity to make the world to know that should the health condition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu worsens due to his inability to access medical attention in his London base, Nigeria Federal High Court under Justice Binta Nyako and the Aso Rock cabals who wrote the bail conditions should be held accountable for such unconstitutional bail condition which denied him access to abroad medication because Nigeria hospitals lack requisite equipment to treat high profile patients like Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and President Muhammadu Buhari.

As Prof Osinbajo refused to give attention to the menace of Boko Haram in Nigeria northeast and Fulani terrorists all over the defunct Nigeria federation and Biafraland, which their activities are now constituting serious danger and threat to Nigerians, but continued wasting energy, time and resources on IPOB which is lawfully demanding for Biafra referendum through the UN laydown principle of Self-determination in UN charters and conventions. Let the world know that Nigeria Acting-President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo is threatening the life of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by saying that he is wanted as a terrorist whether dead or alive. The world should know Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who never levied  war against Nigeria government or at least has killed any fly is being threatened by Prof Yemi Osinbajo whereas same Prof Osinbajo is supervising the constant unconditional release of captured Boko Haram members and recruiting many of them into Nigeria soldiers which they in-turn assist their members in Sambisa forest in betraying and constant killing of the innocent southern Nigeria soldiers at battle fields. It is unfortunate that International Community is pretending ignorance to the romance of Nigeria government with terrorists whereas the same International Community is always quick at wanting to know if IPOB and other pro-Biafra agitating groups have started carrying arms whenever Nigeria media mischievous report false information that IPOB clash with Nigeria armed forces whereas there has never been any day which IPOB confronted Nigeria armed forces regardless of constant massacre of its members by Nigeria army, police and SSS. The world must be on the watch. I rest my case!
