BIAFRA: Many sins of Ohaneze Ndi-Igbo and why they must remain proscribed – IPOB

Many sins of Ohaneze Ndi-Igbo and why they must remain proscribed – IPOB


Published by Family Writers Press

Ohaneze Ndigbo has left a destructive trail of blood, betrayal and sabotage of wider Igbo interest, to the extent that nobody in Nigeria has regard for the honour and dignity of a once proud race. Only those born with a deep sense of betrayal, Lagos-Abuja domiciled traitors and fellow collaborators will have respect for Ohaneze as presently constituted. To date we are yet to come across one person who can confidently point to one tangible achievement of Ohanaeze Ndigbo that benefited the entire people. The truth is, there is none. They work for their pockets and well-being of their children and relatives and nothing more.

Some of the sins of Ohanaeze Ndigbo are too numerous, heinous and abominable to place in the public domain. But for our purposes, we shall present a historic and contemporary overview of a string of mind blowing blunders and outstanding treachery by Ohaneze Ndigbo over the years, for the world to see and judge accordingly.

That IPOB was perversely tagged a terrorist group in the eyes of the laws of Nigeria, when Fulani terrorist herdsmen are free to roam and kill at will, is the exclusive making of Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors. Not many people are aware that Nnia Nwodo and Gov. Dave Umahi personally pleaded with Fulani caliphate to invade the east because Nnamdi Kanu refused to call off the boycott of Anambra governorship election in November 2017. Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors consider IPOB a threat to their livelihood and was determined to accept countless cold blooded executions of innocent IPOB members in order to prove to their Fulani masters they are good Nigerians.

For those in doubt as to the true motive behind the formation of Ohanaeze Ndigbo by the caliphate must bear in mind that Ohaneze has fought and have continued to fight anybody with the interest of the masses of the east at heart. Ohaneze, in keeping with the template drawn up by the caliphate, once fought Dr. Azikiwe into irrelevance. They reduced him from Zik of Africa to mere Owelle of Onitsha, even when Zik realised the errors of his ways during the war and wanted to industrialise the east in the Second Republic.

This same Ohaneze Ndigbo repeatedly conspired against Ojukwu and crowned his humiliation by denying him a seat on Abacha’s constituent assembly. They corrupted Ralph Uwazuruike by pressuring him into accepting money in exchange for extinguishing the hope of Biafra. Today he’s more interested in acquiring landed properties than pursuing the emancipation of Biafra.

Dr Dozie Ikedife it must be stated for record purposes is a dedicated Arewa servant. He was Ohaneze Ndigbo President General when Uwazuruike accepted money from the federal government to destroy the dreams of Biafra restoration. We must not forget that Uwazuruike was handed over to Dr. Ikedife to guide him out of his quest for Biafra. Today Uwazuruike is another corrupt spent force hosting his Hausa Fulani friends like Al Mustapha, Ango Abdullahi and Arewa Youths in his Owerri mansion on ways to build a better Nigeria.

The betrayal of Nnamdi Kanu and his family by Ohaneze Ndigbo is a well established pattern by this group of saboteurs, to kill any popularly accepted  leader dedicated to setting the masses free. The interest of Ohanaeze Ndigbo lies in destroying any body or group that dares challenge the hegemony of their masters the Fulani  caliphate. Nnamdi Kanu refused every mouth-watering offer to abandon Biafra agitation. He refused to succumb to their blackmail at Enugu Government House meeting with South East governors. When Nnamdi Kanu refused to accept money, oil wells and choice properties around the world in exchange for Biafra, he was marked for death.

They couldn’t destroy Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB on their own because they know he is too popular with the masses and they South East governors alongside Ohaneze Ndigbo lack the clout to move against him. Instead they turned to their caliphate masters to send in their battle group of the Nigerian Army to kill him in his home.

IPOB Intelligence intercepted correspondence between Nnia Nwodo and Commander of 82 Army Division Enugu pleading with him  to launch a military attack against Nnamdi Kanu’s compound. Conversations between Gov. Dave Umahi and Lawal Daura the former SSS (DSS) Director General also confirm that all South East governors were in support of the assassination of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

In Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu’s press statements in the aftermath of the deadly invasion of Isiama Afaraukwu and massacre of IPOB family members, it will be observed that he justified the killing of Nnamdi Kanu by repeatedly saying that what happened to Kanu and his parents prevented the death of millions of Igbo people living in the north. He also alluded to this in his BBC Igbo interview on the matter.

The agenda of Ohanaeze Ndigbo from inception is to stop the re-emergence of Biafra or the emancipation of the people of the east. Some older people will remember the antics of prominent Ohaneze Ndigbo chieftains like one Chief MN Ugochukwu of Ugo Foam & Ugo Motors fame, the Abilikete of Umunze in Orumba. He held series of Ohaneze Ndigbo meetings on behalf of Arewa caliphate to dutifully subvert Igbo collective interest.

How about Eze Onuegwu Nwoke from Owerri, who will board Arthur Eze’s Triax Airline to see Abacha in Abuja to literally bow down before him as their god. The act of mortgaging Igbo interest at the altar of self advancement is as old as Ohaneze Ndigbo, it didn’t start today.

There was another popular Ohaneze Ndigbo chieftain, Igwe Emeka Nnaji of Amagunze popularly known as Ankoto, a saboteur during the war. He was a prime mover and prominent member of Ohanaeze Ndigbo. He boldly granted regular interviews to NTA, stating openly that Ohaneze Ndigbo is loyal to Sanni Abacha. A whole race loyal to one Arewa oppressor.

This same Ohaneze Ndigbo saw to it that Ojukwu was not elected to the  constituent assembly because of their hatred for Biafra. They did not want the issue of Biafra or self determination to be raised.

Ohaneze Ndigbo sabotaged Dr. Chuba Okadigbo out of senate presidency. Anybody in doubt should ask Chief Joe Nwaorgu, the immediate past secretary of Ohanaeze.

All the extra judicial killings of unarmed IPOB agitators by the Fulani dominated Nigerian Army was aided and abated by Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors. Operation Python Dance is the brain child of Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors because of their selfish desire to destroy IPOB to please their northern masters.

Nnia Nwodo made Ndigbo a laughing stock the day he knelt down in his bedroom in his Ukehe country home to plead with Bola Ahmed Tinubu to give him the ACN ticket to contest Enugu State gubernatorial election during the burial of his wife.

Historic crimes and injustices against Igbo speaking people of Biafra were never addressed by Ohaneze Ndigbo. For instance in 1939 some Anioma communities in present day Delta and Edo states were carved out of the core Igbo heartland despite protests from Anioma kings then to the British colonial authorities. Ohaneze has done nothing ever since.

Parts of Ezza community of present Ebonyi state was carved into Benue State and instead of Dave Umahi and Ohaneze Ndigbo to fight for the reintegration of these people into the wider Igbo speaking community, they chose instead to preside over an ever shrinking Igbo land mass because they lack the courage, unlike Nnamdi Kanu, to confront the caliphate on these issues.

In 1976, oil rich Obigbo LGA in Aba division of old Imo state was ceded to Rivers state. Obigbo is Ndoki clan and has over 50 oil wells, they are pure Igbo people separated from their Azummili kins by the Imo river. Ohaneze did nothing to reverse this or fully integrate the people into the wider Igbo family.

Another criminal impotence of Ohaneze Ndigbo can be found in yet another caliphate gerrymandering when Ohugbu, an oil rich Ndoki community was ceded to Akwa Ibom state. Ohugbu is one of the highest onshore gas and oil producing areas.

Egbema community a core Igbo community was balkanized into three towns with the highest oil producing town ceded to River State from old Imo State. Today we have the same Egbema people in Delta, Rivers and Imo, all answering Igbo names and speaking Igbo language but some are South South/Niger Delta whereas the other is South East/Igbo. What an abomination!

Ndoni was carved out of Ahoda and given to Rivers state. Ndoni and Ogbaru are same people. Ogbaru is in Anambra with some of their kinsmen in Delta State. The myth that Igbo people are landlocked is the making of Ohanaeze Ndigbo under instructions from the caliphate masters.

We know these oil producing areas of Igbo land was the highest oil producing areas pre 1966 and that Hausa/Fulani led military government balkanised and partitioned our land in order to render Igbo land insignificant in the oil producing equation of Nigeria.

The envious Hausa/Fulani caliphate  government, backed up by the ill fated British concocted Willinks Report, acted contemptuously- aided and abated by Ohaneze Ndigbo, in other to gain control of the oil fields in Igbo towns and villages. They started sharing our oil wells to themselves hence, today they have dominating control of our land and resources.

Ohaneze Ndigbo and PANDEF may be content with picking crumbs off the Fulani table, IPOB will never demean the God given pride of the east nor condescend to such lows.

Under the treacherous watch of successive Ohaneze Ndigbo administrations, Ala-Igbo was restricted to five landlocked states when in actual fact Igboland started in Igbanke in Edo State and ends in the Atlantic Ocean. There is nobody from Opobo Rivers State that doesn’t speak Igbo language.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo allowed Arewa caliphate propaganda to destroy the cultural affinity between Ndi-Igbo, Ibibio and Annang people of Akwa Ibom State who are blood relatives of Igbo people. Ekpe and Okonko, the two highest male fraternities in most parts of Igboland are actually Efik and Annang cultures. But today Cross River and Akwa Ibom is part of the lugburiously named South South with Edo State inclusive. There is no cultural, linguistic or social connection between Efiks and Bini people but we are deceived into thinking they are one people different from the Igbo.

These are some of the unpardonable crimes of Ohanaeze Ndigbo and reason why they remain proscribed. Anybody, who for monetary gains or whatever materialistic considerations, stand in defence of Ohaneze Ndigbo will go down with them. Ohaneze Ndigbo have outlived their usefulness.

COMRADE EMMA POWERFUL MEDIA AND PUBLICITY SECRETARY FOR IPOB

BIAFRA: IPOB Controls South East Nigeria-----CSOs

BIAFRA: IPOB Controls South East Nigeria-----CSOs

The very successful sit at home observed by the people of Eastern Nigeria on Friday 14th September 2018, will go down in history as the boldest statement made by the people of Eastern region since 1970.

In spite of subterranean efforts by government to subvert and undermine the sit at home,by offering inducements to every union to disregard the sit at home,Ndigbo shut down Igboland on that day.

Despite threats to civil servants that they would loose their jobs and traders that they would loose their  shops,over 80%of the people stayed home on September 14.

Even open threats by Police and other law enforcement agencies could not deter the people of Eastern Nigeria from obeying the 14th September sit at home order.

Efforts by the powers that be to plant fictitious narrative that the sit at home order was partially complied with,only resulted in amusing the people. Only turning into a source of entertainment in this horrific period of destroyed economy and anguish in the  land.The  false narrative also confirms to the masses the troubling reality, that the polity is in the hands of dishonourable liars.

The fear of the truth and the compelling urge to plant false narrative,point to the fact that the leadership and the led, dwell in two different worlds. The gulf between the two,keep widening everyday. But the  truth  is that our people,the much oppressed and serially abused

 masses of Eastern Nigeria are tired of Nigeria.

Frustrated with the polity and they  now choose to vent their anger the only way they can, by staying home on September 14th in order to send a message to the world.

The political leadership, shocked by the huge compliance,hurriedly resorted to doing all they can to sell  the impression that the compliance was low in order to save their faces.

But all through history,LIVING IN DENIAL of any uncomfortable situation has never solved any problem.Problems are only resolved,when they are confronted and addressed sincerely. The Igbo question has not been addressed, let alone resolved.Neither does the Nigerian state plan to give any attention to their cries any time soon.Their "leaders "are cooperating well with the oppressor.

Regardless of the continued pretense of the political class,September 14th was a watershed in the both the annals and journey of Ndigbo in Nigeria.

Ndigbo stayed home on September 14th because Nigeria has consistently denied them justice since 1967.

Ndigbo stayed home because every effort to reconstruct Nigeria,and enthrone equity has been consistently rebuffed by the owners of power in Nigeria. Reports of three National conferences has been successfully killed by the owners of power in Nigeria.

Ndigbo stayed home because they have lost faith in their political leaders. Our people stayed home because our lives don't matter in Nigeria.
 Soldiers invaded our homestead, killed scores of unarmed youths a year ago, took many away,and nobody is saying anything till date.

Ndigbo stayed home on September 14th because our patience is getting to the limit. We stayed home because the present military constitution is a farce.We stayed home because we are imprisoned in Nigeria. We stayed home because we can't take it any longer.

Regardless of the choice of the political class to live in denial of the truth, our people will continue to sit indoors every September 14th,  because we can't take it any longer. The younger generation rejects the decades- old humiliation and oppression meted out to our people since the end of the war.The message from September 14th successful sit at home is:GIVE US JUSTICE OR GIVE US FREEDOM.

The now quite obvious division between the political leadership and the masses of Eastern Nigeria is clearly a result of loss of confidence  between the two.

The masses,especially the youth of Eastern Nigeria want justice or freedom. The political class should either join them in their quest for equity or be left behind. We will never accept the scorched earth policy and war of attrition anymore. Our civil disobedience and passive resistance will continue until freedom is attained.

AFRICA: WHY UN MUST LISTEN TO IPOB LEADERSHIP AND HASTEN UP BIAFRA REFERENDUM

AFRICA: WHY UN MUST LISTEN TO IPOB LEADERSHIP AND HASTEN UP BIAFRA REFERENDUM

The people of Biafra first graced the world news in 1967 when the young nation was forced into declaring themselves a Republic. This was precipitated by the massacre of the people of Biafra in Northern Nigeria after Nigeria independence of 1960, an atrocity history recorded as pogrom. Biafrans particularly from the East were rounded up and killed in a most gruesome genocidal orgy of violence, to the extent that the number of those killed was roughly put at 50,000 people.

What the world knew about Biafrans in 1967 was different from what Biafrans truly were. The world called them rebels. A name that described  'a people who violently resist an established authority'. Before the declaration of Biafra as a republic, many efforts were made to enthrone peace and order. The meeting in Ghana known as "Aburi Accord", was convened as means to proffer lasting peace to an already failed state called Nigeria. And the agreement held by both parties was totally reneged by the Nigerian side.

The same Nigeria on the early hours of July 6 1967, advanced towards Nsukka and fired the first shot that triggered the war. It was a war of survival for Biafrans. The people that had their brothers killed in Northern region, returned to their homes and brutal carnage was meted on them. The then British government orchestrated the demonization of Biafrans on the international stage by making the world  to see Biafrans as the villain instead of the victim which they were. They perfectly hid the atrocities committed by the Nigerian military against the people of Biafra and their newly birthed nation.

Since after the 1967/70 atrocious war, Biafrans are still being marginalized till today. 50 years after the civil war, the Nigerian government has refused the region that was once Biafra, any form of development as visually seen. There is virtually no federal government presence within and around the Biafran territory. Biafrans can not jettison their region therefore for whatever reason. They were removed from the current railway construction project across the country and has been subtly sidelined from most of, if not all federal government projects.

President Buhari in one of his international visits, described the area of the country that did not vote for him as 5%ters which Biafrans in a more visible way, did not participate in the election, hence he vowed not to treat Nigerians that fall within that 5% the way he will treat his own people that gave him more than 90℅ votes. Economic blockade is another tool used by the Nigerian government to suppress the people of Biafra. The Nigerian government systematically closed down all sea ports in Biafraland, thereby forcing people to import through Lagos seaports only.

How can one be a slave in a country he calls his own? The persistent killings by Fulani herdsmen are not something to be desired. The rampaging Fulani herdsmen have in Enugu killed hundreds of people. And Biafrans can not continue to bury their own, just because they are in Nigeria.

Today, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), have risen up. They are demanding for their rights to self- determination as enshrined in the United Nations charter of the right of Indigenous People to self-determination. Referendum is what Biafrans are asking for. Many countries of the world have exercised that same process and it averted bloodshed. Even Britain who colonized Nigeria also exercised that right in their "Brexit".
When the Scottish people were protesting peacefully on the streets, the British government did not unleash military venom against them. They offered them a chance to decide their fate. Also Britain offered their citizens the right to decide whether to still belong to European Union (EU) or not hence the Brexit mantra.

For sometime now, the Nigerian military has killed many IPOB members protesting peacefully. They have arrested most of them and tagged them terrorists for demanding for their freedom via referendum.

This is why the United Nations should as a matter of urgency listen to IPOB leadership and quickly conduct an internationally recognized and monitored referendum in Nigeria for Biafrans, to avoid a repeat of the 1967 war that killed more than 3.5 million people. Asking for Biafra referendum is not asking for too much, so that Biafrans can go home and develop their nation at their own pace.

BIAFRA: PROSCRIPTION OF OHANEZE NDIGBO BY THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA (IPOB) IS COMMENDABLE

PROSCRIPTION OF OHANEZE NDIGBO BY THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA (IPOB) IS COMMENDABLE

The word "Proscription" appears commonly used these days but many people seem not to have fully grasped the actual meaning. Therefore, there is the need to give detailed explanation of what the word "Proscription", really stands for.

"Proscription" simply means the action of forbidding, banning, condemning or denouncing something. It is to condemn or forbid a thing as "harmful" or "unlawful". Readers should please underline the word "forbidden" for emphasis.

In Igboland (Biafra), right from the inception of the Igbo race, sabotage is one forbidden act that is gravely treated with disdain. Haven once said: "whenever a child turns around to disown his father, it is a call to look inwards. It has always been the other way round. It is the father that disowns the child but whenever the child turns around to disown his father, it shows that the father has derailed from his fatherly responsibilities". Taking a closer look into the establishment and operations of Ohaneze Ndigbo socio-cultural group, you will understand that this group of individuals never came together for the beneficial purposes of the Igbos in particular and her neighbors in general.

A question like why should Ohaneze Ndigbo be banned by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), would begin to prop up from some quarters. In the historical records of the entire global community, countries/nations, the only thing that has never been heard of or seen, is where acts of sabotage/saboteurs are being celebrated. It has been reportedly made known and witnessed where countries and people celebrate their independence, nations celebrate their heroes and heroines, victories after wars and conflicts etcetera. There is virtually no record anywhere that has celebrations of acts of SABOTAGE.

Ndigbo (Igbo race) as a nation has celebrated sabotage and mediocrity quite enough. Sabotage has cost us fortunes. It has cost us our lives and integrity as a people, resulting in gruesome killings, marginalization, frustration and regression. We as Biafrans, are totally fed up with the despicable acts of betrayal by Ohaneze Ndigbo. When Biafrans particularly of Igbo extraction were being massacred by the Nigerian armed forces, Ohaneze Ndigbo never raised eyebrows. When politicians elected into public offices to render quality services to the people fails to do the anticipated, like providing infrastructural developments: building of schools, roads, hospitals etcetera, these men hiding under the umbrella of sabotage called Ohaneze Ndigbo, never voiced out their displeasures as truly the representative of the people.

Not many people know that Ohaneze Ndigbo has been in existence since the year 1976, forty two (42) good successive years ago, with no definitive benefit enjoyed from them by the people. Not many know that members of Ohaneze Ndigbo socio-cultural group are exceptionally and selfishly wealthy and that is the reason behind the devilish scheming to eliminate each other as they scramble to pick crumbs dropping from the tables of their Hausa-Fulani slavemasters.

Asking why Ohaneze Ndigbo should be banned is essentially irrelevant. Rather, the right questions to ask are:

* What benefit(s) have Ohaneze Ndigbo activities attracted to Igbo Biafrans since its establishment?

* Since the inception of this socio-cultural group 42 years ago, what singular advantage has it brought to the Biafran neighborhood as the people's representative as claimed? Sometimes a group of individuals in this part of the world, constitute themselves with an appealing name with covert sinister motive of representing the people, just to accomplish and service their selfish interests. With this inherent crass egocentric drive, they hoodwink the gullible and manipulate what rightly belongs to the people to their advantage.

* Can anyone clearly specify who really appointed these Ohaneze Ndigbo members and on whose mandate/interest are they working? Was there any consent of the generality of Igbo Biafrans for their election?

The proscription of Ohaneze Ndigbo socio-cultural group by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide under the supreme command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is one of the greatest achievements of this global family aimed at emancipating Biafrans from the shackles of slavery and impoverishment. Any company, organization or institution that has existed for 42 successive years without the expected fruitfulness does not deserve continuity.

NNAMDI KANU'S ORDEAL: JUSTICE BINTA NYAKO AND NIGERIA JUDICIAL COUNCIL MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE

NNAMDI KANU'S ORDEAL: JUSTICE BINTA NYAKO AND NIGERIA JUDICIAL COUNCIL MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE


It is over one full year running now since the 14th of September 2017, when the Nigerian army murderously invaded the palace of His Royal Majesty (HRM) Eze Israel Okwu-Kanu of Afara-ukwu Ibeku ancient kingdom, on the despotic directive of President Muhammadu Buhari. The army embarked on a killing spree of all sighted objects and captured the monarch, his wife and son, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), while the conspirational, disgusting and disappointing silence of the International and Domestic Human Rights Organisations held sway. Although, appreciation goes to Amnesty International which courageously stated that the Nigerian government must account for the disappearance of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the very nearest future.

One would have expected at this time that all human rights organisations within the Nigerian federation and elsewhere ought to have synergized and dragged Nigeria to court on whose directives the Nigerian army's callous and terroristic invasion of a private residence, which precipitated the abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his aged parents. Up till date, they have remained incommunicado and their location, mysteriously unknown. These human rights groups both within and outside Nigeria, have maintained comfortable indifference in the face of gross human rights violations being steadily perpetrated by a lawless and terroristic government.

However, it is important to state here that if there is anyone or institution that must be held accountable for the predicament of the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his parents since the 14th of September 2018, it should be Justice Binta Nyako of the Nigerian Federal High Court Abuja, who granted him (Nnamdi Kanu) bail under stringent requirements of incapacitation that totally stripped him of his right to his traveling documents. Added to the accomplices is the Nigerian legal institution known as National Judicial Council (NJC), upon which Justice Binta Nyako granted the most wicked, obnoxious and despicable bail under reference here without resort to professional caution. Recall that on the 25th of April 2017, Justice Binta Nyako presiding over the case preferred against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian government, granted the most stringent bail in modern history with attached devilish conditions, which demanded that the defendant (Nnamdi Kanu) surrendered his traveling documents, with two of his international passports to the court registrar to forestall his bail jump.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu living true to his conviction as a product of civilised society, duly consented to the despotic bail conditions presented before him. This he did for his respect to the rule of law. He perfectly continued obeying the requirements of the bail to the letter. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was highly expecting his next appearance date in court on the 17th of October 2017, being the date fixed for the resumption of his trial. That legal process was blatantly truncated by the Nigerian army personnel armed to the teeth, armored tanks and aerial surveillance aircraft which simultaneously carried out a murderous raid in his residence, whisking him/his aged parents away to unknown destination and summarily gunning down all beings within the vicinity.

Listed beneath are established reasons why Justice Binta Nyako and the Nigeria Judicial Council (NJC), should be held responsible for the disappearance of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his parents since the 14th of September 2017, viz:

(1) COURT CONDITIONAL BAIL PROVIDES SECURITY TO DEFENDANT

Justice Binta Nyako and NJC should irrevocably be held responsible for trespasses around Mazi Nnamdi Kanu starting from 25th April 2017, when through draconian bail conditions, the court took custody of his international passports to prevent him from traveling out of Nigeria even in the face of danger of assassination attempt on his life. In civilised societies, the court is professionally bound to account for the security of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu based on the fact that his personal liberty has been stripped off him through a stringent bail.

From the 14th of November 2018, when the case bordering on his disappearance is supposed to resume, his legal counsels should pointedly tell the world that due to the failure of the court to live up to it's statutory obligation around the defendant, the army had unhindered impunity to trespass around him by murderously invading his home. Justice Binta Nyako as the presiding judge of the Federal High Court that granted him the bail, without requisite court professional pronouncements, forestalling any encroachment on his rights as a person. He remained the court's property pending the determination of the case Justice Binta Nyako is culpable in the saga that led to Nnamdi Kanu's ordeal.

That was the reason behind her emphatic warning before the open court that Benjamin Mmadubugwu, Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Bright Chimezie Ishinwa and David Nwawuisi, who are Nnamdi Kanu's co-accused/co-defendants, should be allowed to enjoy their bails without any external disturbances. She went to the extent of making a pronouncement on how their security should be, by fortnightly reporting their movements to the Commissioners of Police in their respective States confirming their required security. With this pronouncement on their day of bail, any trespass therefore from anybody, institution, organization or rumor relating to such, would have to be reported to the State's Police Commissioner of the defendant. But in the case involving Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Justice Binta Nyako woefully failed either by willful design or by unintended omission, to make such a pronouncement leaving Mazi Nnamdi Kanu porously insecure. This is one of the reasons why the presiding judge must be held accountable over Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's ordeal.

(2) DERELICTION ON THE REPORT TENDERED TO THE COURT BY NNAMDI KANU'S LEGAL COUNSELS AND SURETIES

Justice Binta Nyako and the Nigeria Judicial Council (NJC) should be held responsible for the abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian army. This is due to Justice Binta Nyako's dereliction on the report tendered before her court by the legal counsels to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu along with his sureties on the 17th of October, 2017. It was stated that the Nigerian army backed by armored tanks and aerial surveillance aircraft, carried out a murderous raid in the compound of the defendant (Mazi Nnamdi Kanu) and ever since that "dark day", nobody has either seen him or heard from him till the very October date of 17, 2017. Unfortunately, in what appeared like a criminal conspiracy with the accused Nigerian army over the reason behind Kanu's inability to appear in court on the scheduled date, Justice Binta Nyako cynically winked at the report and continued to mount pressure on the sureties to produce the man they stood for or forfeit their bail bonds. By this singular derelict attitude of the presiding judge therefore, that the Nigerian army callously invaded the resources of the defendant whom the court duly granted bail, Justice Binta Nyako should be sacked by the Nigeria Judicial Council (NJC), for onward prosecution over her body language which implied her conspiracy with the military authorities to eliminate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. If she is not an accomplice, she then has to call on either the Chief of Army Staff or the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 82 Division of the Nigerian army, Enugu, to fully explain what the army was doing within the residential vicinity of a man who was serving his bail. But the presiding judge whose consent may have been duly sought for the murderous raid, decided to play the comical game of ignorance of the provision of the law. It is most absurd that a professional legal pundit like Justice Binta Nyako, failed to know that her court would have detailed a delegation to the spot of event to take record on first hand information of the level of devastation wrecked in the compound by the unenlightened, terroristic army of Nigeria. This ought to have been done before changes could be effected in the compound as a result of ecological realities. She claimed to be ignorant of that position of the law. If on the 14th of November 2018, being the next court resumption date for the disappearance of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Justice Binta Nyako fails to initiate serious enquiry on what the mission of the Nigerian army was in his compound present whereabouts since 14th September 2018, then she should be held responsible for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's disappearance.

(3) STRIPPED OF LIBERTY VIA COURT BAIL

Another reason why Justice Binta Nyako and NJC should be held accountable for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's ordeal is because the court's stringent bail stripped him off his personal liberty through the seizure of his international passports and other valid traveling documents. If he was in custody of his papers, he would have escaped from Nigeria after the first attempt by the Nigerian State to assassinate him which was thwarted on Sunday 10th of September 2017, when some youths of his Afara-ukwu Ibeku community in Abia State within the palace, denied the army, unwarranted incursion into the residence with their presence. But because Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was completely castrated by the Nigeria Federal High Court as presided over by Justice Binta, seizing his international passports as part of conditions for bail which rendered him immigrationally impotent and instead of running away from the country to secure his life, he was rather seen hosting a press conference on Monday 11th September 2017. He clearly complained to the global community about the assassination plots of the Nigerian army against his life. Justice Binta Nyako should be held responsible for the attack on Nnamdi Kanu which eventually took place on Thursday 14th September 2017, wherein he was captured and kept incommunicado in a secretive custody.



Had it been that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was with his international traveling documents, which guarantee his liberty to movements, he would have escaped from Nigeria on Monday 11th September 2017. He could have comfortably escaped to London or anywhere of his choice, reporting back to the court of the assassination plots targeted against his life by the Nigerian army amongst other court proceedings as may be determined if Nigeria guaranteed his security.

Conclusively, it is pertinent for Justice Binta Nyako to understand that her only self-extrication from accusation of criminal conspiracy against the accused whom she granted bail, is for her to unbiasedly and courageously summon the Nigerian army authorities to explain the following:

* Who authorized the deployment of the Nigerian army to invade and massacre quite a number of Biafrans at Nnamdi Kanu's residence and eventually whisked him away?

* Was Nnamdi Kanu indicted for committing any fresh crime against the Nigerian State?

* Was there any court pronouncement of revocation of his bail with any record of his resistance that warranted military intervention?

* Is the Nigerian army constitutionally obligated to invade the compound of an armless civilian in the first place as it was carried out against Nnamdi Kanu?

Where did the Nigerian military authorities keep him and his aged parents since the 14th of September 2017 when they were captured and taken away?

These are mind boggling questions that the Nigerian Federal High Court in Abuja presided over by Justice Binta Nyako must legally compel the Nigerian military authorities to proffer answers to under oath. They must be cross-examined before she could get herself totally exonerated from the culpability of Nnamdi Kanu's disappearance because Amnesty International has unmistakably stated that the Nigerian government must account for his disappearance at the fullness of time. The Nigeria Judicial Council (NJC) should note that Justice Binta Nyako represents the image of the Council and so must pressure her to jettison playing games with the report brought before her by Nnamdi Kanu's lawyers and sureties. Her persistent trifling with that damning report against the gruesome destruction and massacre at the home of defendant Nnamdi Kanu, by the Nigerian army becomes a blatant affront to the world's acceptable legal standards in the 21st century adjudication of the law. She and the Nigeria Judicial Council which she is professionally answerable to, should be readily prepared to render account as accomplices to the global community via Amnesty International amongst others. The world is waiting for the 14th November 2018 date when the case will resume hearing in the court, if the needful fails. All fingers remain crossed in anticipation.

We are observing!

IPOB PROSCRIBES ACTIVITIES OF OHANEZE NDIGBO AND EVIL POLITICIANS IN BIAFRALAND

IPOB PROSCRIBES ACTIVITIES OF OHANEZE NDIGBO AND EVIL POLITICIANS IN BIAFRALAND

The proscription of activities of Ohaneze Ndigbo socio-cultural group and self-serving politicians in the Southeast by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is one of the greatest landmarks of this courageous, bold, highly enlightened, civilised and peaceful indigenous mass movement of our time. This development stems from the criminality of the so-called Igbo leaders/elders who in connivance with the Hausa-Fulani oligarchy spanning over decades of unrepentant dehumanizing practices being foisted on the indigenous people of the old Eastern region. This is a region created by the occupational government of Nigeria with the principal intent to permanently "divide and rule" the people partitioned into the so-called South-East and South-South regions purely on British advice.

Meanwhile, the wave of subjugation, marginalization, killing, betrayal and dehumanization exerted on the people have been effectively orchestrated by the slavish and self-serving activities of these men who claim to be representatives of Easterners, on the platform of diverse political colorations of the British contrapted Nigeria. Following the atrocious war waged against Biafrans between 1967 and 1970, the British sponsored military Constitution handed down to the inhabitants of Nigeria in 1999, has a designation of effectively crafted ploy to permanently scheme out the INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF THE OLD EASTERN REGION from accessing the political office as Nigerian President. It also mortgages the rights of possible political office holders by absolutely remaining dafts to the questionable demands of the Northern Islamic Oligarchy, at the detriment of the people. All the politicians of Biafra extraction, have become so helplessly and permanently subservient to their Hausa-Fulani slavemasters who give them appointments under serious bargains.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, haven foreseen the impending eternal pauperization and enslavement of the indigenous owners of the land of Biafra, decided to stake their lives and destinies in the total liberation drive of their people. This however was at variance with the agenda of these politicians who are obligated by their oath of allegiance, to service the interests of their Hausa-Fulani slavemasters against the overriding freedom of their own brethren. The same people they deceitfully claim to be representing but primarily  centred on greed and selfishness. The IPOB for avoidance of doubt, has variously engaged in meetings with these men, to possibly find ways for peaceful co-existence and synergy but to no avail, proving the latter's desire to strengthen the targeted subjugative policies of the Nigerian government against their people. Premised on the criminal activities of these treacherous individuals, the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) therefore, with the irrefutable mandate of the Biafran people, resolved to PROSCRIBE all the intents and purposes of the Ohaneze Ndigbo and their political fellows within the Southeast region particularly and of course, the entire Biafraland in general.

NEED FOR MAXIMIZED SUPPORT TO IPOB IN HER PROSCRIPTION OF OHANEZE NDIGBO

NEED FOR MAXIMIZED SUPPORT TO IPOB IN HER PROSCRIPTION OF OHANEZE NDIGBO

The story surrendering the biblical Moses regarding his stand for his own Israelitish people in their captivity in Egypt, prominently stands out as requisite credentials of a worthy leadership. A leader is given birth to, not to wage war against his own people but to go fully out to fight, support and protect them, the cost implications notwithstanding. Hinging on this reality, Moses who escaped to Midian for fear of being killed, returned back to his people eventually to accomplish a defined mandate.

He saw first hand, the heinous maltreatment carried out against his fellow Israelis by their Egyptian slavemasters. They were enormously forced into hard labor, molested, harassed, humiliated and killed. The embittered Moses saw all those  despicable acts of dehumanization. He witnessed the cruel beating of a Hebrew by an Egyptian and when he realized that nobody was watching, he prevailed against the Egyptian on behalf of his brother, killed the Egyptian and buried the remains in the sand.

Moses was overwhelmed by the burning desire to get his brethren totally delivered from bondage. The glory and flamboyance of Pharaoh's palace never drowned his mandate nor was he swerved from his mission to get his own people emancipated.

In our contemporary time and especially in Igboland of Biafra, reverse is rather the case. The leaders of the people who ought to be their defenders and that of their rights and interests, have shamelessly constituted themselves as accomplices. When the Ohaneze Ndigbo socio-cultural group, some political elites and religious leaders closed their eyes to the gross injustice and marginalization against their own people by the Nigerian government which they criminally support to wreck havoc against Biafran youths,  all respect for these  jaundiced, compromised Igbo leaders/elders was lost. These crop of humans that support and approve the killing of their own people for selfish gains are not worthy to be called or addressed as leaders/elders in the land. They surreptitiously converged at Enugu in one of their plots, invited the Nigerian armed forces and proscribed the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for killing a spree in Igboland (Biafra).

Sceptics should clearly spell out a singular advantageous step these Igbo leaders undertook when hundreds of IPOB family members were mowed down by the Nigerian soldiers.

President Muhammadu Buhari, a Fulani Islamic Fundamentalist tyrant through the instrumentality of the Nigerian army, has persistently massacred Biafran (Igbo) youths under the guise of military evil expedition tagged Operation Python Dance I & II across Biafraland. He committed the most gruesome genocide ever known in the 21st century history in Afara-ukwu, Ibeku, Umuahia, in the month of September 2017. The murderous invasion of the residence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his parents, resulting in their disappearance eversince then coupled with the deaths of quite a number of Biafrans, remain traumatically memorable. But instead of the so-called Igbo leaders to stand up in defense of their own people like the biblical Moses, they treacherously collaborated with the enemies to kill their own. The Hausa-Fulani oligarchy through the support of these  marauding saboteurs of Biafra extraction in Ohaneze Ndigbo/political merchants, gave birth to the proscription and tagging of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the globally acclaimed most peaceful and civilised indigenous mass movement throughout the world, as terrorists.

The overwhelming resultant effect of the last Biafra General Strike/Sit-At-Home Action carried out in the entire Biafra territories and elsewhere on Friday 14th September 2018, confirms that IPOB, as an indisputable authentic mouthpiece of the Southeast region of Nigeria. If there exists reasons for proscription in the region of any group of people, it is the Ohaneze Ndigbo and Southeast Hausa-Fulani slave governors which the leadership of the IPOB has recently and expeditiously carried out. This is in tune with the principle of "Igwebuike" (real power belongs to the people). The people have realistically, reclaimed their rights and the people are Biafrans.
