Release Nnamdi Kanu, DSS can’t manage his health – IPOB leader’s lawyer insists

 Release Nnamdi Kanu, DSS can’t manage his health – IPOB leader’s lawyer insists

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor has called again for the unconditional release of his client.

Ejiofor said the reason for the call was hinged on the fact that the secret police cannot properly longer manage Kanu’s health conditions.

The lawyer made this known via a statement after his routine visit to Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services on Monday.

Ejiofor stated that DSS managed to get two doses out of seven the separatist group leader needed and he had exhausted them on Saturday.

He said, “I spent quality time with Kanu today, during which period he confirmed to me, that following the public outcry and wide condemnation that trailed the lack of proper medical attention in addressing his worsening health condition, the DSS in a feeble attempt at improvisation, in order to cure a serious health condition such as the one confronting Onyendu, only succeeded in procuring two doses, out of the full dosage of seven bottles of the prescribed medications.

“The two doses were exhausted on Saturday, 24th September 2022. The effect of the prevailing situation is that the limited dosage of the prescription Kanu was provided with, is just a drop in the ocean, which did not achieve the desired result.

“We are no longer in doubt that the DSS has run out of medical options in managing Kanu’s debilitating health condition. Hence, our passionate plea is for the unconditional release of Kanu to enable us to seek proper medical attention.

“Otherwise, we should be allowed to provide the required funding to the DSS to enable them to purchase the complete prescribed medications for Kanu, or we could procure them ourselves in order to ensure that Kanu leaves the DSS facility in good health condition upon regaining his freedom soon.”

IPOB Again raises alarm over a plan by Nigeria govt to commit crimes during political campaigns and tag it on IPOB and ESN

IPOB Again raises alarm over a plan by Nigeria govt to commit crimes during political campaigns and tag it on IPOB and ESN




 We the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU is amused to the laughable and disgraceful statement credited to the Inspector General of Police linking ESN and IPOB to their already planned attacks on political campaigns and fraudulent election.


The corrupt Government and their compromised Security should know that IPOB and ESN volunteers don't engage with Nigeria shambolic political campaigns and selection process they call election. IG of Police should leave IPOB volunteers and ESN Operatives alone to focus on things that matter instead of trying to get them involved in Nigeria Government and it's fraudulent political processes.


If Nigeria Police have concluded their plans to commit crimes during political campaigns and tag it on IPOB and ESN they will fail as usual.

Any time Nigeria Security Agencies raises false alarm, know that they have planned attacks to blackmail IPOB and ESN Operatives but we cannot allow them to continue their  business of blackmail. These compromised Security Agencies have killed innocent people in an effort to blackmail IPOB but Chukwu Okike Abiama have always vindicated us.


We have always maintained that we are not interested in anything that has to do with Nigeria let alone taking any side in their fraudulent political process. IPOB are not Zoo politicians. The only political process that IPOB will participate in is a UN supervised Biafra Referendum that will usher in Biafra Sovereignty and Independence.


Anyone intending to link ESN Operative, Volunteers, including IPOB members in their planned political attacks is deluded and regret  will always be their portion. Inspector of Police and his criminal officers should stop their planned attacks because they will always be exposed and disgraced. IPOB hands are clean.

In the process of blackmailing IPOB they will plunge Nigeria into a political crisis that will consume Nigeria and their corrupt polititcians.

If this fulani led Government want IPOB to be part of their politics, they should fix a date for Biafra Referendum then they will see civilized political prowess of IPOB.


Desperately linking IPOB to this fraudulent election shows that the Government have lost focus. IPOB have remained peaceful and nonviolent in our quest of seeking Biafra freedom from Nigeria State and no amount of blackmail can change our resolve to restore Biafra from the shackles of Nigeria Government.

Nigeria Government should leave IPOB/ESN alone. We are bigger than their political strategies. They can link or lure other groups into Nigeria Politics but not IPOB because we remain focused on our mission and can't be attracted to what we abhor. We abhor anything Nigeria and can't be attracted to what we have rejected.

We know that Fulani IG and Fulani Presidency have perfected plans to kill people for politics and link it to IPOB for their usual blackmail. We also know they have mobilized some compromised media houses to help them spread their lies against IPOB and ESN. We are already used to their blackmail and are waiting to expose their lies.


The whole world should know that IPOB is not interested in the selection process they call election in Nigeria because it doesn't meet our standards to achieve Biafra freedom. IPOB will achieve Biafra freedom, not through Nigeria politics or election but through a UN supervised referendum or an outright declaration of BIAFRA.


There Is No Internal War In Biafraland - Chinasa Nworu

  There Is No Internal War In Biafraland - Chinasa Nworu

The above headline is one of the many points raised by Mazi Chinasa Nworu during his special and educative broadcast of 25th of September 2022, on Radio Biafra.

Judging from recent occurrences, several persons have been of the notion that the unrest in Igbo speaking region of BiafraLand is war. This is very wrong, and must be countered adequately. There have truly been series of killings, abductions and burning of properties in some states of the region, and most parts have not known peace for long now, as a result, but it is not war.

When you want to describe such friction as Internal War, it should be that it is between two neighboring communities, towns or states within the geographical boundary. For instance, if there is a conflict between Anambra State and Enugu State(both of the Igbo speaking Biafra region) or between Aguleri and Umueri, which are both communities in one state, Anambra, such is internal war. Most times, power and land draggings are usually the cause for internal frictions.

However, the current case in the said region of  Biafraland is not the same. If there was anything of such, it is in the far past. But presently, there is absolute peace in the land, in that respect.

What has been happening in the land(Biafraland) since of recent, is a clear act of terrorism. A method employed by the federal government of Nigeria to conquer the "stubborn" Igbo nation that have refused to give out their land to the murderous fulani herdsmen for Rural Grazing Area(RUGA). This Biafran's refusal is borne out of the understanding that the Fulanis need these settlements to help them in the quick facilitation of their conquest and Islamization of all Nigeria states.

In wars, there is usually attacks and counter attacks from both sides, done with everything possible weapons within the fighters' reach. Such is not the case in Igboland. It is only the Nigeria military that are attacking and doing all the killings, without any record of a single reprisal from the being attacked and oppressed Igbos. The combined Nigeria Forces kill the Biafrans at will, stop whenever they are tired, and return back to continue another day.

These combined forces includes Ebubeagu, Police, Army, Air Force, and some criminal gangs.  All of whom are being politically engineered by the Nigeria government to kill Biafrans, in a bid to weaken agitation for a separate free Biafra Nation, championed by the Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB)

To say there is internal war means that the igbos are fighting themselves with guns, state by state and community by community, which is not true. There is no Internal War in Biafraland. It is the Nigeria government that is terrorising Biafra region. They are deploying battalions of their military, which are made up of 60% incorporated terrorist boko haram fighters, reintegrated from the prisons to attack and burn down communities and villages, including markets, in Biafraland .

The only offence of the the region is that the people have acknowledged their true identity as Biafrans, and as a result, want to leave the British enclave(Nigeria) via a well monitored referendum. But, unfortunately, those  overseeing the affairs of Nigeria government cannot differentiate between Referendum and War.

There is no war of any kind in Biafraland, it is a government sponsored confusion, terrorism attacks that are aimed to conquer my people and totally abort Biafra from our minds.

The Destruction Of Our Beloved Southeast And A Cry For Help

  The Destruction Of Our Beloved Southeast And A Cry For Help

The accompanying grave silence to the destruction of Eke ụtụtụ market in Orlu, Imo State, Biafraland is very disheartening and totally unbelievable. Supposed leaders of South East; President Generals, Traditional rulers, Council Chairmen, House of Assembly members and other prominent personalities, people who in various ways are at the helm of leadership have all remained deadly silent at such cruel crime against the people of the region they presumably lead. This sent a bad message to the sensibilities of our people who are now victims of state sponsored attacks.

The international community should not look away from this wanton destruction of lives, properties and sources of livelihood of South Easterners by the Nigeria security agents. It is inarguably clear that these attacks are meant at gradually crippling the economic base of the Eastern region, within the possible time.

The Easterners in general are now vulnerable to these serial attacks as they are being coordinated and carried out at the sponsorship of the Federal and State governments. Government that should protect lives and properties of its citizens are proudly owning up attacking the people and destroying their assets in the name of fighting criminality in the area. So sad indeed.

Life in the Old Eastern Region of Nigeria(Biafraland) is evolving into chaos and insecurities on the rampage. The earlier international community come to the help of Biafrans, the better for the global economy.

Nigeria Forces And The Regular Unprofessionalism In The Discharge Of Duties, A Page Torn From Colonists' Play Book

Nigeria Forces And The Regular Unprofessionalism In The Discharge Of Duties, A Page Torn From Colonists' Play Book

It is commonly acknowledged that only three things are constant in life: Truth, Moon and Sun. The truth has always been outstanding, no matter the rate of conspiracy or efforts targeted at suppressing and subduing it.

We have seen many security settings round the world, but have never seen one as bad as the Nigerian security. Their unprofessional ways of discharging their duties is second to none, and is in no way distinct from that of  terrorists. Although, one could argue that the unprofessionalism is as old as the unsolicited meddling by the colonial administration.

It can be recalled that the Nigerian security agencies on the 14th of September 2017, invaded the home of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenious People Of Biafra(IPOB). And on the process, shot and killed more than 28 armless individuals, not even minding that the home is a royal home. Again, this gruesome and vile behavior is traceable to the colonial administration that was wrapped in a bedsheet of cultural defilement, ancestral demonization and racial derogatory.

When the home of the Yoruba Nation leader, Sunday Igboho, was raided or invaded in a disgusting manner, very consistent with a tyrant method, the Nigerian security went on rampage killing many innocent citizens. Then, plant guns in the house and the surroundings and claim that they were discovered there. That was a page torn from the colonial administration's play book of gaslighting or psychological manipulation.

When terrorists also referred to as bandits attacked a Southern Kaduna village, what was traumatizing was the unprofessional conduct of Nigerian air force pilots who killed the villagers in the guise of trying to repel the terrorists, while sparing the terrorists at same time. This has embarrassingly shown a security that is unprecedented unprepared or infiltration by terrorists.

The most recent Is the burning down of over 40 buildings, an ancestral market, and the killing of many innocent and unarmed youths unprovoked, all in a single day, at Orsu Local Government Area of Imo State, Biafra land, by the same Nigeria soldiers.

Painfully, we have never heard or seen the Nigerian security agencies act in such a brazen manner towards the terrorists that are terrorising everywhere in Nigeria, especially the North. It is only against unarmed and innocent citizens. Does it really mean that they were only trained to attack unarmed people or does this insinuate that there is a secret agenda they have against the Middlebelt, the West ( Oduduwa) and the East (Biafra)?

It is time the whole world looks into this carnage done by the Nigerian government and its security agencies.

Nnamdi Kanu's Health: Nigeria Is playing with an active Volcano whose eruption will Spare No One - IPOB Warns

Nnamdi Kanu's Health: Nigeria Is playing with an active Volcano whose eruption will Spare No One - IPOB Warns


The attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of the great liberator Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU has been drawn to the destructive part being toed by the Nigerian Gestapo Secret Police the DSS as it concerns the health of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide. Recollect that Mazi Kanu was illegally and criminally kidnapped in Kenya in 2021, Extraordinarily rendintioned to Nigeria and has been kept in solitary confinement in the DSS facility at Abuja. 

The IPOB leadership received very disturbing report from our Legal Team about the deteriorating health of the great leader and Prophet Mazi Nnamdi KANU inside DSS solitary confinement. Nigeria Government through their lawless DSS have refused Mazi Nnamdi Kanu access to his personal and professional Physician for over a year now in contravention to Court orders. The Nigerian government and the DSS is hereby notified that they are playing with an active Volcano whose eruption will leave a trial of complete destruction should they continue on this ignoble part and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's is in any manner impacted negatively.

Nigeria Government must understand that because IPOB has remained peaceful even in the face of most unbearable provacations in the form of abductions, torture, secret disappearances, extra judicial murders in addition to the extraordinary rendition of our Great Leader from Kenya to Nigeria since June of last year, 2021, the Nigerian government and its agency of torture called the DSS should very well know that the issue of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's health while in their custody is a RED LINE they must not cross. This peaceful approach will never remain the same if anything untoward happens to him. We are telling you now so that the international community will bear us witness that we warned Nigeria before it and its torture agency the DSS commit an irreparable blunder.

Fulani led Government of Nigeria can bribe the entire world to remain silent even after they have broken International laws on extradition but that will not stop the Tsunami that will result from the eruption of this active Volcano you are toying with. We want Nigeria to understand that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra is worth more than 1million men and this a tip of what we shall sacrifice if anything untoward happen to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in your custody. Nigeria should be grateful for having a peace loving freedom fighter like Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has ensured that IPOB remain peaceful even with all the unlawful arrests, detentions, and extrajudicial executions of peaceful members of IPOB.

We are urging the British Prime Minister & her High Commissioner in Abuja, The United States of America President & US Embassy in Abuja, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch organisation, United Nations, African Union, ECOWAS, Israel Prime Minister & Israel Embassy in Abuja, Russia President & Russia Embassy in Abuja, German Chancellor & her Embassy in Abuja to compell  Fulani led Government of Nigeria to unconditionally  release Mazi Nnamdi KANU the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra or be prepared to repeat their Genocidal war against Biafrans as it was in 1967-1970.

The world Bodies and International Community who regularly meet with the impostor impersonating the late Buhari as well as the Nigerian Presidency officials should warn them of the dire consequences that will result in playing with the health of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and compell them to without delay release Mazi Nnamdi KANU from their custody because he has not committed any crime known under local and international law.

Nigeria MUST agree on a REFERENDUM date with IPOB for the Biafran people to decide on their fate and future. The time and Era of impunity and imposition of external will on the Indigenous People of Biafra is long gone and dead. We are aware that the issue of Biafra is among the topical issues facing the International Community and world Leaders; the most important issue now is the release of our leader and paying him adequate compensation for the flagrant abuse and violation of his fundamental human rights and for the physical and psychological torture he has been put through these past months.

If Nigeria Government refuses to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and should anything wrong happen, this peaceful Biafra struggle will suddenly turn into a bloody revolution, and the Nigeria Government should be held responsible in the event of this scenario. 

Nigeria Government should know that the gentle strides of a Lion is not a symbol of timidity.


Nnamdi Kanu must not die in prison, Ohanaeze warns

 Nnamdi Kanu must not die in prison, Ohanaeze warns

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has warned the federal government of Nigeria that the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu must not die in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).

Ohanaeze gave this warning on Tuesday in a statement titled ‘Nnamdi Kanu must not die in prison’ by the group’s national spokesman, Dr Alex Ogbonnia, to react to the current worsening health status of the IPOB leader.

The Igbo group said Kanu’s lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor has revealed that despite his ailment, the secret police holding him have refused to give him the medical attention needed.

Ohanaeze said further that the incarceration of Kanu has aggravated security challenges in the South-East geo-political zone of Nigeria, adding that there is an untoward marginalization of Igbo in the country.

In the statement, the group stated that several political stakeholders including Ohanaeze President, Professor George Obiozor have appealed to the federal government to seek a political solution concerning Kanu which has not yielded results.

The statement partly read: ‘The attention of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has been drawn to the deteriorating health of the Leader of the Independent Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“Information reaching us indicates that ‘Nnamdi Kanu is currently suffering from gastrointestinal illness, which necessitates the constant use of antacids and other available medical treatments.’”

“It adds that ‘the DSS has refused to allow him have even the smallest amount of the prescribed painkiller, which could have given him short-term respite.

“Report from Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the IPOB’s attorney, further adds that ‘the DSS has repeatedly treated the existing court order—which specifically directed that Nnamdi Kanu should be granted access to his doctor for an independent review/investigation of his current health status—with the utmost contempt and disdain.”

It further said: “The above report should be very worrisome to any fair-minded patriotic Nigerian, the fair-minded and patriotic because it is self-evident that the Nnamdi Kanu phenomenon is a product of circumstances.

“Several patriots such as Chief E K Clarke, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, Dr Bitrus Porgu among others have decried the unjust treatment to the Igbo of the South East.

“The Governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Aminu Waziri Tambuwal in a humane and patriotic candour stated that “the marginalisation of the South-East geopolitical zone by the Federal Government of Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari is crazy and unprecedented.

“Tambuwal adds: ‘I feel sad and disturbed each time I see the Igbo crying of marginalization. The Federal Government of Nigeria has been unfair to the Igbo. In all socio-economic activities is like the Igbo are not part of the nation.

“The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Ambassador Professor George Obiozor, an erudite professor and seasoned diplomat, has on several occasions advised President Buhari that the issue of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is beyond the courts or the use of force; advising that it requires a political solution.

“Obiozor urged the federal government to embrace the values of justice, equity and fairness in their true sense for real peace, progress, unity and development to thrive in Nigeria. He argued that all over the world, the moment the populace becomes conscious of the existence of governance based on selective morality, outrageous paradox and double standards, the expected legitimacy from the people becomes well-nigh unattainable.”

“The Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization and several eminent Igbo have repeatedly appealed to the heart of Mr President to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on the premise of a political solution.

“The only living legend among those that fought for the Nigerian independence and the minister of Aviation in the First Republic, Chief Mbazulike Amechi presented the request to President Buhari when he visited Abakiliki, Ebonyi State, as his last wish.

“Earlier before that, Mbazulike had also met President Buhari in Aso Rock, Abuja for the same reason. In the interim, common sense will ask: why deny Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the necessary access to a medical doctor? This is very curious and raises a lot of questions.

“Finally, it is common knowledge that the incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu has rather contributed to the enormity of insecurity in the South East and one wonders what will happen if by the utter carelessness, negligence or unnecessary victimization, something untoward happens to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“Instructively, many uninformed Nigerians share the base reasoning of the proverbial ostrich; the ostrich buries its head in the sand, joyously flapping its wings, and believes that it has escaped from reality. As in the ostrich, the civilised world is watching!”
