IPOB: The Underrated Freedom Movement

 IPOB: The Underrated Freedom Movement 



When this movement of the Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB), ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu started, it was easy for several mischievous persons to write against Biafra. Many political recruits of the Nigeria government in the East, comprising mostly of youths, rose up to write many demeaning articles and posts against the agitation. Some even blamed the agitators for dying in the hands of Nigeria military. Some even mocked Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who narrowly escaped for his life when battalions of Nigeria soldiers came to kill him.


IPOB peaceful agitators were murdered by soldiers, and some of these heartless critiques said that these youths were dying out of foolishness, that they quite knew that  President Buhari is the president, yet they came out to protest. So, they concluded that these youths killed themselves. By this way, they exonerated the murderous Nigeria soldiers and blamed the victims. It was just like blaming a rape victim and exonerating the brutal rapist. 


I remember one of them writing to maliciously portray that IPOB members who have no guns came out to confront soldiers with guns. But protest is never confrontation. They always have ways of making it look like the protesters are not peaceful, as to advance the political tenure of their pay masters.

"Biafra can only be achieved through war or joining politics" is what one of the sophists recruited by Ọhaneze will always say. That was their ploy to force IPOB into metamorphosing into a political party.


Today, those they called miscreants didn't fall for that, but are still waxing stronger.


For them, IPOB members are miscreants. They say they are made up of Keke and Okada riders. They said IPOB members are not in anyway educated. They see themselves only as the  educated ones. But how can uneducated people start such a great movement?


The underrating of IPOB members by the Igbo acclaimed educated class supporting the government played an important role in the growth of IPOB. They will always say that IPOB or Nnamdi Kanu does not speak for ndị Igbo. They make it look like Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a nobody. They look for every opportunity to tell you how IPOB is the reason things are not working properly in the East. While their governors are in power looting, they demand good governance from IPOB. 


IPOB is the greatest freedom fighting movement in the world. IPOB has educated people and professionals in their rank. Yet these so called intellectuals failed to see those in IPOB as educated people. The abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has again proven that those of them that claimed to be educated are not even educated. They are actually blind men.


IPOB has proven that they indeed speak for the people. Because of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, ndị Igbo have consistently stayed at home. Nothing of such has ever happened before in the Igbos' history. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has become the greatest Igbo man alive and will soon transform into the greatest Igbo man dead or alive. 


But, the politicians are not sleeping. They want to fight back. They have used military and police and failed. They have abducted, imprisoned, killed and yet failed. So, they chose to infiltrate IPOB as to cause problems. These infiltrators are the autopiloters. They were mainly former supporters of politicians not long ago. Their duty is to terro-rize our people in the name of IPOB. They want the people to start seeing IPOB as those destroying people's properties. They want to cause the people to start murmuring against their own freedom. They are working for the dub-ious politicians.


As real IPOB member, you must educate our people and let them understand that autopiloters are working for Niigeria government to harm them. They are the ones the politicians sponsored to be terrorising the people every Monday in the name of enforcing an already canceled sit at home.


It is therefore your duty as IPOB member to defend the struggle. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said he will not disappoint us, but we will disappoint him. He knew that this day will come.


Will you allow autopiloters cause harm to this very struggle that have taken the lives of millions of Biafra people?

The war of Annihilation Against the Igbos and the hypocrisy of Nigeria government

 The war of Annihilation Against the Igbos and the hypocrisy of Nigeria government 



It is said that whoever wants to go to equity should always go with clean hands. Whoever wants peace must always cultivate equity. Political pride, hatred and hypocrisy against the Igbo tribe is what got Nigeria to the position they are in today.


For the purpose of clarity, equality means that individuals or group of people are given the same resources or opportunities. On the other hand, equity recognizes that each individual or group has different circumstances and, therefore, allocates resources and opportunities so that equal outcome is attained.


The Igbos suffers the worst humiliation in Nigeria if not in Africa. During the war, more than 3 million of Igbo people were killed and starved to death. Igbo became victims in their own land. Ironically, while other ethnicities pay lip service to their belief in Nigeria, Igbo have shown theirs by the enormous investments and developments that is racially and tribally blind scattered across the length and breadth of Nigeria. Indeed, actions speaks louder than words. Igbos are living in almost all the villages in Nigeria. Any village in Nigeria without Igbo presence is not worth living in. In fact, it is jokingly said that, anywhere you go in the world without the presence of an Igbo man there is no business there, the place should be deserted. That joke is true about Nigeria!


After the civil war, in order to keep the fragile peace of Nigeria, as they claimed, the then Nigerian head of state, General Yakubu Gowon, instituted the 3Rs—Rehabilitation, Reconstruction and Reintegration; and also proclaimed to the world that the war has ended with a “No victor, no vanquished.” A proclamation that turned out to be an act of deception and an insult to the Igbo people. The claim of an effort to heal wounds, treat psychological horror and trauma, reintegrate the country were made for the purpose of perfunctory, intended for the television. Suffice it to say that it is needless to ask pertinent questions such as, was the policy of the 3Rs executed to the letter? Was the ‘no victor, no vanquished’ implemented to calm frayed nerves, douse tension and give succour to bereaved relations and survivors of the genocide erroneously called war? We all know the answers!


The last straw for them that broke the camel’s back was Chief Awolowo’s abandon property policy which he formulated as the then Finance Minister, to give the Igbos only twenty (20) pounds, no matter how much they had in their savings and other accounts in Nigerian banks before the war. This is one of the worst man’s inhumanity to man that was meted-out to Igbos. It was a sadistic and merciless exhibition of un-magnanimity by a proxy winner playing out a script.


Of all this humiliation to Igbo, Buhari in this age too, never deemed it right to make Igbo feel at home. Instead, to prove that he was a sadist and clannish, Military Operation Python Dance was the only federal gift given the Igbo.


The unofficial result of the June 12, 1993, election which indicated a victory for Moshood Abiola of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), over Bashir Tofa of the National Republican Convention (NRC). The winner of the election was thus never declared as the elections were annulled by IBB, citing electoral irregularities. The annulment led to protests and political unrest, including the resignation of IBB and a weak interim civilian government, and culminated in the continuation of military rule in the country with Sani Abacha ascending to power as the military head of state via a bloodless coup later in the year. Fast forward to 2018, President Muhammadu Buhari, during his 2018 democracy day speech, said that June 12 will be Nigeria’s Democracy day in other to compensate and pacify Yoruba people for what happened in June 12, 1993.


How come that in a family of 3 sons (Tunde, Musa and Obi) of the same parents, Tunde is considered as the legitimate child, Musa the right son and Obi as the prodigal son. What is good for Tunde and Musa should also be good to Obi, if we claim we are one Nigeria. Why would the president of Nigeria choose to pacify Yoruba people but militarize Igbo land? Why did Buhari choose to honour June 12 of yesterday but forget over 3 million Biafrans brutally killed during the war? Why would he consider it right to make June 12 Democracy day but chose to bring operation python dance to the Igbo people?


Nigeria will continue to run from pillar to post, from frying pan to fire until it learns the importance of "I am sorry".

"Any Tribe or Ethnicity Who Doesn’t Want to be Part of Biafra Will Never Be Forced To Do So" – IPOB

 "Any Tribe or Ethnicity Who Doesn’t Want to be Part of Biafra Will Never Be Forced To Do So" – IPOB



The Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB (IPOB) has said that being part of Biafra would never be by coercion but voluntary through a referendum.


The group, in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary Emma Powerful, said any tribe or ethnicity not willing to be part of the republic would not be forced to do so.


It however said such tribes must conduct a referendum for their people to decide their fate on the agitation for Biafra.


The group further refuted reports accusing the leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu of drawing the Biafra map, describing it as false and targeted to set the members against themselves.


The statement reads in part: “Our attention has been drawn to the blackmail being sponsored by our detractors that IPOB has drawn the Biafra map. We, therefore, want to debunk such a fallacious narrative. We did not draw any Biafra map.


“We understand that some people in the coastal region of Biafra are misinformed and deceived with false information that IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu and Igbo have drawn the map of Biafra. It is false and intended to set us against ourselves. The issue of the Biafra map should not generate any heat because we know ourselves.


“Ijaw National Council (INC) should understand and remember that their brother Dr Frank Opigo initiated the name Biafra which we answer today.



 

“They should stop saying that Ijaw wasn’t conquered pre-colonial and Colonial-era because Igbo never said they were conquered.


“Igbo people never conquered any tribe in the old Eastern region because our fathers saw themselves as one family, and today IPOB and Nnamdi KANU have towed the peaceful steps and accommodating spirits of our fathers but if any tribe undermined our no problem you can continue on your own.


“Being part of BIAFRA will never be by coercion but a voluntary matter through a referendum.


“Any tribe or ethnicity who doesn’t want to be part of Biafra will never be forced to do so. Such tribes are free to go on their own but you must conduct a referendum for your people to decide their fate on the agitation for Biafra.


“We can attest that Igbo people never fought against any tribe in olden days because Igbo believe in (Onyeaghala Nwanne ya and, Ibiri Kamu biri) (live and let live).


“Again Ijaw tribe and other tribes in the old Eastern region including the Mid Western region are Igbo brothers and sisters today, tomorrow and forever.


“Igbo are not going to force anybody or tribe to join the fight for Biafra freedom. Let every tribe try what they can to wake up for their freedom because freedom is good and remains the best for all of us.


“No tribe in the old Eastern region and Western region should allow themselves to be deceived because Nnamdi KANU and IPOB did not draw map for Biafra. Instead, we are staking our precious lives for all and it is the sacrifice we ought to pay for the realisation of our freedom and independence.


“We are staking all we have for this freedom project, without the Igbo tribe being in forefront of this struggle the struggle would have been a thing of the past and we must continue until freedom is totally achieved.


“Again, we appreciate the move by Izon tribe and other tribes in the region to achieve freedom but they should not look by the side because if they do, they will lose their focus then the freedom will move out of their hands, let them focus and stop displaying their hatred against Igbo tribe without Igbo they are gone in this Nigeria designed and approved for fulani to control.


“They should know that IPOB and Igbo are not their problems but Fulani and the compromised politicians in our midst.”

Umuahia High Court Verdict And Its Effect on the Ongoing Nnamdi Kanu's Case

 Umuahia High Court Verdict And Its Effect on the Ongoing Nnamdi Kanu's Case



According to the law, the Abia State High Court in Umuahia, like every other state's high courts has the jurisdiction to give hearing to cases that are filed from within her territory. For instance, the military invasion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's ancestral home in Afara-ukwu Ibeku, Umuahia happened within the territorial jurisdiction of the Umuahia State High Court. Therefore, there is an equal right for both the Federal and State High Courts in Umuahia to attend to the case because it boarders on matters of Fundamental Rights.


One may argue that since the case is between Federal agencies like Nigeria Department of State Service(DSS), Police and the Military, the Federal High Court should exclusively have the jurisdiction to entertain it. But, at the same time, such a person should as well consider what the documents of the case may contain, regarding the nature of the case and prayers of the applicants against the respondents, including the parties sued as defendants/respondents. It might be under fundamental enforcement procedure rules 2009 or under the administration of criminal  justice law of Abia State or under Abia State High Court civil procedure rules, which also confers jurisdiction on both courts.


Therefore, on the effect of the just passed verdict regarding the Nigeria government's infringement on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's fundamental human rights, the following subsists and serves as judicial precedent, under the doctrine of "de stare decisis", unless appealled against and the court of appeal rules on the contrary.

They are:


1. The ruling in Abia State High Court, Umuahia is a complete victory for the Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB) World-wide who were maliciously tagged a terrorist organisation. 


2. That Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of IPOB is free to continue as such, since IPOB remains a freedom fighting group and not a terrorist organisation.


3. That the stigma of a terrorist organisation, as tagged on IPOB has been removed. Therefore, the ruling of the court has also made it known to the world that IPOB is a known freedom fighting movement and the Nigeria government should desist from her destructive activities on IPOB members. That also gives credence to why Mazi Nnamdi stated clearly in court that he is not the leader of a proscribed IPOB. By the said ruling, the court affairmes the fact that Nnamdi Kanu is the leader of a free and undented indigenous peoples, and awarded damages of one billion Naira against federal government of Niggeria.


4. That the false claim of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu jumping bail has been demolished and put to rest by the said ruling of the court. And Senator Abaribe who stood as surety for Kanu's bail in 2017 has been vindicated. Therefore, Nigeria government has to also refund to Abaribe all the money he deposited in the court that has been assumed forfeited due to the false claim of Kanu jumping of bail.


5. That under the international arena, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been vindicated as a person being persecuted by Nigeria government instead of being prosecuted. The Nigeria media is therefore urged to stop stating that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu jumped bail. Rather, he escaped for his life.


6. That Though the State High Court and federal high court are courts of equal and coordinate jurisdictions, the ruling at the Abia State High Court, Umuahia is supposed to be a guide to the Judge of the Abuja federal high court in the remaining case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, if indeed Justice Binta Nyako is ready to render justice as it is supposed.

 

7. That regarding the question of extraordinary rendition of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya, this court ruling has fortified one of the grounds of the preliminary objections of IPOB legal team, that "federal high court has no jurisdiction to entertain the matter before her". That Nigeria government broke various international laws and conventions by the extraordinary rendition. By the ruling, Nigeria government must first explain to the world how they got Kanu to Nigeria.


It is a notorious fact that the Nigeria military were the ones who went to Nnamdi Kanu's home in September 2017 and attempted to kill him. And in the circumstance, over 28 persons were killed and much properties destroyed in Kanu's compound. That Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, being human, has the natural rights to react to threats on his life. And so, adequately responded to the realities on ground by escaping for his dear life on the terrible day in September 2017. Therefore, he is justified for running away from Nigeria. It is simply a natural response.


So, the ruling alludes to the fact that before Nnamdi Kanu would come to Nigeria and stand trial, due process must be followed. But this case, Nigeria government violated the due process by kidnapping Kanu from Kenya, and renditioning him extraordinarily to Nigeria.


8. That Nigeria government owe the world an explanation on how they brought Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who was not in possession of Nigeria passport, to Nigeria. There is no provision anywhere in the law for Nigeria government to invoke her internal laws as a means to vacate her international obligations.


9. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a citizen of the world and has certain rights, protections and obligations under different international laws and conventions, which Nigeria government is also a signatory to, and is obligated to maintain, protect and respect.


The ruling at Abia State High Court in Umuahia has just affairmed that IPOB and Kanu must surely overcome.

Killings In Eastern Nigeria: Army Wittingly Or Unwittingly Admitted Culpability But Failed To Answer 24 Critical Questions

 Killings In Eastern Nigeria: Army Wittingly Or Unwittingly Admitted Culpability But Failed To Answer 24 Critical Questions  

…Intersociety



Onitsha, Eastern Nigeria

Friday, 21st January 2022


It is the position of the Int’l Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law that the authorities of the Nigerian Army have admitted involvement in the killing and disappearance outside the law of thousands of defenseless citizens of mostly Igbo Judeo-Christian Faith origin and razing of their dwelling houses in Eastern Nigeria. Having carefully read and analyzed the two different reactions of the Nigerian Army issued within 24 hours on 19th/20th January 2022, they are conclusively nothing short of self indictment and admission of responsibility in the heinous conduct atrocities. Intersociety further wishes to state that the reaction of the Ebonyi State Government is not responding to. The State Government, apart from lacking technical and structural expertise in the subject matter, cannot morally exonerate itself of mountainous security challenges facing the State including its inability to account for the whereabouts of five field Engineers and scores of security personnel that were abducted and disappeared in Effium, Ohaukwu Local Government Area on 3rd Nov 2021 and afterwards in connection with the construction of the all-important AfDB funded Ring Road Phase 2 Project.


However, the authorities of the Army deserve commendation for speaking out and wittingly or unwittingly admitting responsibility. As it has chronically become part of the Army in addition to its culture of impunity and incorrigibility, the Army’s two reactions were filled with irrelevancies, frivolities, false labeling, stigmatization, distraction and diversion of the core issues. Intersociety as an Organization reputable in forensic facts finding and corporately statistical has no time for such. As knowledgeably and statistically contained and explained in our Special Investigative Report, the Nigerian Army and other relevant security forces or operatives failed woefully in ensuring that their operations in Eastern Nigeria are grounded in due processes and procedures contained in written laws including the Laws of Nigeria and several regional and international Treaty Laws willingly acceded to by the Federal Republic of Nigeria and inescapably binding on Nigeria.


Other than the Nigerian Army’s wittingly or unwittingly admission of operational culpability, the NA also failed to  provide answers to the following 24 Critical Questions: A. based on intra and inter agency intelligence available to the Nigerian Army, if any, how many groups of “Unknown Gunmen” exist in the Southeast and what is their numerical strength? B. are all the 4800 arrested/abducted in the past 14 months armed ESN members or “Unknown Gunmen? C. in the unbiased opinion of the Nigerian Army, how many Easterners had been ‘arrested’ in the past 14 months and where are they? D. how many of them have been freed, if any, and how many have been handed over to the Police, if any, and as legally required?  E. by the extant Laws in Nigeria including the Armed Forces Act 2004, can Nigerian Army detain, investigate and prosecute arrested civilian citizens who are not subject to the Armed Forces Act of 2004?  F. going by our Special Investigative Report, “who and what are the names of those killed or abducted and disappeared in Eastern Nigeria in the course of the Army and security forces’ operations in the past 14 months? G. how many of them were killed and abducted? H. what are the whereabouts of those abducted and bodies of those killed openly and in custody? I. when, where and why were they killed or abducted? J. who killed them and abducted others? 


Others are: K. is it also part of the Nigerian Army’s “Rules of Engagement” under UN System to abduct civilian citizens alive and disappear or kill them in custody? L. are they also part of the Army’s use of force, proportionality of same and legitimate self defense under the same UN System? M. who killed 110 residents at Obigbo in Rivers State between 21st October and 18th November 2020? N. who abducted and bundled away over 700 civilian residents of the area including over 50 non-menopausal women? O. which law authorizes the Army to abduct civilian residents of Obigbo in the hours of the Blue Law and secretly held them for more than one year in far away Northern Nigeria without trial? P. who sexually molested about 70% of the over 50 abducted Obigbo women? Q. who killed over 40 of the Obigbo abductees in custody? R. who set ablaze or burnt down or razed or destroyed civilian dwelling houses, sanctuaries or sacred places of worship and their symbols and livelihoods in Eastern Nigeria in the past 14 months? S. how many dwelling houses, sacred places of worship and livelihoods in villages or communities in the Muslim North have soldiers of the Nigerian set ablaze or burnt down in reprisal for killing of soldiers including Generals?


The rest are: T. when has it become a military tradition and art of modern warfare for the Army to kill or permanently disappear citizens arrested or abducted alive and taken into custody alive? U. under International Rules of Engagement in inter armed conflict involving Nigeria and another, can Nigerian Army or Armed Forces kill in custody its captured Prisoners Of War (POWs) or surrendered rival combatants or wounded others?  V. when has it become a military tradition or art of modern warfare or policing of turbulent Civil Space for Army to engage in wanton destruction of civilian dwelling houses including sacred places of worship especially in Eastern Nigeria? W. is the present day Nigerian Army truly “Nigerian Army” with compositional reflection of the country’s multi ethnic and religious groupings? X. when was the last time the Nigerian Army impartially investigated allegations of professional or operational misconducts or gross misconducts against its personnel and superior officers in conformity with the Int’l Law Principles of Complementarity and No Impunity?


Finally, contrary to Nigerian Army’s welcomed reactions, Intersociety’s Special Investigative Report was thorough, statistically grounded and objective. For instance, the Report, apart from containing the civilian casualties of the security forces and Jihadist Herdsmen killings also included the estimated number of defenseless citizens killed by “Unknown Gunmen” as well as the number of security operatives and members of the “Unknown Gunmen” that also lost their lives. The Report further condemned in strongest terms the use or resort to offensive violence by both state and non state actor armed groups. In all, our major grouse against Nigerian security forces particularly the Army is ‘killing outside the law’ and abduction and disappearance of unarmed citizens as well as burning or destruction of civilian homes and their sacred places of worship and livelihoods using ethnic and religious profiling fueled by false labeling and absence of detective policing intelligence and investigation. As the Nigerian Army was effortlessly explaining itself, its personnel of the 144 Battalion at Ukwa West in Abia State were busy two days ago burning citizens’ houses and properties in Owaza Community, a boundary community between Abia and Rivers State over a report of killing of some military personnel in the area by suspected oil thieves.


The Nigerian Army’s generalization of its butchery and arsonist operations in the East in the past 14 months and description of their slain, injured, tortured, abducted, disappeared and property victims as “belonging to criminals and criminal entities or irredentist groups or callous criminals or cannibals masquerading as freedom fighters” is sad and unfortunate. It further speaks volume of the Army’s un-repentance and remorselessness in its rapacious use of false labeling and jungle justice soldiering through which thousands of innocent souls have been sent to their early graves in the country especially in Eastern Nigeria. We make bold to say that we at Intersociety are only sympathetic and strongly supportive of principles of International Law under UN System including due processes and procedures and we owe no one or group any apology for such bold step or position. For the avoidance of doubt, the link to Intersociety’s Special Investigative Report (Massacre In Eastern Nigeria: Security Forces, Jihadists Killed 1,400 Defenseless Citizens, Arrested/Abducted 4800, Disappeared 1000, Attacked 100 Igbo Communities, Raided 1000  Homes And Burnt Down Or Razed Or Destroyed N40B Properties), dated Wednesday, 19th January 2022 is here: https://intersociety-ng.org/massacre-in-eastern-nigeria-a-special-investigative-report/

ESN Does Not Write Letters To People Or Make Calls Requesting For Funds From People --IPOB

 ESN Does Not Write Letters To People Or Make Calls Requesting For Funds From People --IPOB



We the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU, wish to reiterate, that IPOB and ESN operatives have no camp in Lilu in Ihiala LGA of Anambra State. We are not militants and Criminals and don't need any camp in Ihiala LGA. We are identifiable and we are all over Biafra land and IPOB branches in the Diaspora.



Nigeria security agencies are using the hatred they have on the people of Biafra particularly IPOB and ESN members to unleash cruelty on the people living in these communities where they suspect that criminals are taking refuge. 



If crimials take refuge in any Community in Biafra land, that doesn't make them IPOB members or ESN operatives. We have also not said there are no more criminal gangs in Biafra land just like every other country even in the advanced Western nations. But we won't accept the tagging of every Criminal element found in Biafra as IPOB member or ESN operative.



Recall that some of these criminals were already mentioned by IPOB leadership sometime during a broadcast. IPOB leadership said these criminals were unleashing mayhem on innocent citizens in some commuunities. Some of these hoodlums were a creation of wicked politicians in their desperation to discredit IPOB and ESN.


In Orsumoghu, Nnewi South, Lilu Orsumenyi of Ihiala LGA of Anambra State these criminals mentioned below are the ones impersonating ESN/IPOB members using ESN name to commit crimes against the people of these communities they are not ESN members, the communities involved should use their vigilant group and stop them, ESN will help them too. 


1.Emmanuel aka  (Obereagu)

2.Innocent Obiekee from Isingwu Orsumoghu

3.Izuchukwu from Amaduru  Orsumoghu 

4.Ofordie aka Baby 



In Orlu Imo state these criminals mentioned below are impersonating ESN/IPOB members to demonise IPOB and ESN members, they are sponsored by Hope Uzodinma and his co-travellers and traitors to demonise IPOB and ESN members in Imo State 

1.  Agu 

2. 50

3. Vice 

4. Ojoo  

5. Number one (No 1) and Ojoo and their gang are collecting Illegal levy at Eke Ututu in the name of ESN when they are neither ESN operatives nor IPOB family members. The one they call Sky and Zuma are collecting proceeds from innocent communities. IGBANDA and his gangs are also collecting 5,000 Naira from Orlu people in the name of ESN. These names mentioned or listed in this press statement have been declared Persona Non Grata in Biafraland and they remain so. People must stop giving them money they are not ESN oprrayive and not IPOB volunteers. 


Again, ESN does not write letters to people or make calls to people requesting for funds, funds for what we ask? IPOB and ESN have no dealings with such evil activities of these criminals who are now on ESN watchlist. Be warned and stop giving them money in the name of ESN or IPOB volunteers.  


Contact these numbers to report any crime from individuals, cult groups or criminal gangs using the name of IPOB/ESN to commit crimes. 

The  numbers 

+1248 949 4843

+61434294745 



They have been kidnapping  people, snatching cars  and raping our women in our territory. IPOB volunteers and ESN operatives have also been making efforts to apprehend these agents of sorrow. We cannot watch these beasts created and sponsored by Hope Uzodinma, his masters in Miyeti Allah and their co-travellers to destroy Biafra land.



It is therefore, wicked and annoying that the Nigeria Army, Police and DSS will keep dishing out falsehood against IPOB and ESN by claiming that these criminals when arrested, are IPOB and ESN members. The so-called camp where these said criminals were arrested does not belong to ESN. They should stop lying against us. 



COMRADE EMMA POWERFUL MEDIA AND PUBLICITY SECRETARY FOR IPOB.

Terrorism charge: Nnamdi Kanu pleaded Not Guilty

 Terrorism charge: Nnamdi Kanu pleaded Not Guilty 



The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Wednesday, pleaded not guilty to the fresh amended 15-count charge of treasonable felony filed against him by the Federal Government.


Kanu, who was brought into the courtroom around 10.15am, said he was innocent of all the allegations levelled against him.


He also complained from the dock that some counts in the amended charge were similar.


Meanwhile, immediately taking his plea, the prosecution counsel, Shuaibu Labaran, told the Federal High Court that he was ready to proceed with the trial, adding that he brought two witnesses to testify against Kanu.


However, Kanu’s lead counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), told the Court that he had on Tuesday evening, filed a 43-paged preliminary objection for the charge to be quashed and struck out without the matter proceeding to trial.


“We are further asking that the defendant should be discharged and acquitted as there is nothing in this charge. It has no basis at all.


“We also have a motion requesting the court to grant bail to the defendant,” he added.


Labaran, on his part, argued that Kanu’s two applications were not ripe for hearing, stressing that he would require time to go through them so as to be able to respond.


“In essence, the business of the day cannot be allowed to be truncated by these applications,” he argued.


In a brief ruling, Justice Nyako said that since Kanu’s first application was challenging the propriety of his trial as well as competence of the charge against him, the Court ought to hear it first.


“As for the second motion (on the issue of bail), I don’t even want to talk about it, at least not at this stage,” Justice Nyako held.


The Court subsequently adjourned till February 16 to hear the pending application.
