The zoo(Prosecutor) file another amended charges against the defendants (Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawusi and Chidiebere Onwudiwe)

The new filed amended charges should have been filed at least two weeks before the court sitting(today).

To these charges, the defendants (Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawusi and Chidiebere Onwudiwe) took a plea of not guilty to the charges.

Hence the defending council(Bar. Ejiofor) requested two days to understudy the amended charges.

The lawyer of Bright Chimezie Ishinwa requested for his client to be transferred from DSS custody to Kuje prison. The judge, Binta Nyako granted that request, hence this evening Bright Chimezie Ishinwa will be taken to prison to be with the rest of his brothers.

Finally, the sitting was adjourned till Thursday, 22nd March, 2018 for the defending council (Bar. Ejiofor and team) to understudy the amended charges.

Blood Everywhere, We Want Buhari to Resign Now – Arewa youth leader, Yerima

Blood Everywhere we want Buhari to resign now – Arewa youth leader, Yerima

Shettima Yerima, National President of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign.

According to the youth leader, age and health have limited the performance of the president and there is need for him to give up leadership for a younger person.

Speaking with SaharaTV, Yerima said the Buhari-led government had failed woefully in terms of security and employment, stressing that the country has been bleeding while the president goes about attending parties.

He said, “The situation is really sad and uncalled for. It is a challenging period for the nation, no doubt. Bloodletting everywhere, coupled with poverty and unemployment. If the government was up and doing, the situation would have changed.

“From my observations, I think the killings in the nation is a script people are working on to disunite Nigeria and they are trying to align it to a particular ethnic group or religion. Call them Fulani or whatever, a criminal is always a criminal and should be treated as one.”

Speaking further, the youth leader said lack of proper coordination among security agencies had also contributed to the lingering menace.

He added, “If you look at it critically, the public don’t event have confidence in the system. They have no confidence to challenge the security agencies whenever they fail.

“To an extent, you don’t expect anything good to come out of this.”

On the controversy trailing the presence of the president at a recent wedding in Kano, Yerima said it was uncalled for.

“To me, there’s nothing wrong in attending to a wedding, but it was a wrong time for him to go when the country is boiling. An injury to all is an injury to all. Why going for a wedding with 25 governors while there blood all over the country. I think it is uncalled?”

Asked if the president should be given another chance in 2019, Yerima said it would do him good to honourably bow out.

He voiced his conviction thus, ‘He has done his best. There’s a limit he can do at this age. He’s actually sick. To coordinate even his family activities at this age is challenging, so he needs to rest.
We want Buhari to resign now – Arewa youth leader, Yerimas bow out and handover to the younger generation.”

Following the shocking sack of the immediate past United States Secretary of state, Mr. Rex Tillerson by the US President, Mr. Donald John Trump, on Tuesday 13th March 2018, there exists in Aso Rock, Abuja, Nigerian government's sit of authority, some measures of palpable fear and tension. It could be recalled that Rex Tillerson, the immediate past Secretary of state for the United States of America (USA), got a shocking of his life as the unpredictable action President of the country, Donald Trump, got him fired in less than 24 hours, after his inglorious meeting with Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari, the Nigerian despotic President. The intelligence Unit of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, can authoritatively report that it hinged on questionable relationship existing between Tillerson and Buhari. The meeting was in sharp contrast with the principles and approval of White House. According to an inside information obtained from the Presidency, the Nigerian government is presently reeling in panicky situation over the unpredictable line of action that will be presumably taken by Donald Trump against Nigeria. Opinions suggest that the US President is seriously angry with the government of Muhammadu Buhari on various issues.

But whether President Trump is displeased with the Nigerian government or not, the IPOB Intelligence Unit cannot fully ascertain. In the custody of the Intelligence Unit, is this information that Rex Tillerson visited Abuja without the authorisation of the White House which was basically premised on shady oil deal planned to be concessioned to the sacked American Secretary of state as a way of wooing the US government into covertly supporting the atrocious policies and impunity of the Nigerian government being carried out against the Biafran people. This ploy it was reliably gathered, did not go down well with the US government which promptly evoked the sack.


It is quite obvious from evolving developments since President Trump assumed office, that the policies of the Nigerian government is grossly prejudicial to the interests of the United States of America. And based on this fact, President Trump should not be expected to take lightly, anything that has to do with Buhari's government. It tantamounts to a declaration of war against the US when the Nigerian government did the following:

(1) Due to Buhari's personal hatred for the person of Donald Trump, the Nigerian government prior to the Presidential election that produced Donald Trump as the US President in 2016, the Nigerian government dangerously, meddled into the American general election by pushing huge amount of monetary inducements to garner support for the candidacy of Mrs. Hillary Clinton in order to consolidate the Islamic status quo in America as the tenure of Barack Obama elapsed.

(2) It is distinctively on record, the vampiric onslaught against hundreds of unarmed, innocent Biafrans in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, carried out by the combined team of the Nigerian Armed Forces comprising of the Army, Police and officers of the Department of Security Services (DSS). They were under firm Presidential instructions of Muhammadu Buhari to massacre   Biafrans who converged in Port Harcourt, Biafran ancestral home celebrating a new dawn in American democracy. Quiet a number of promising Biafrans were killed, maimed, extra-judicially arrested and incarcerated.

(3) It was under the watch of the Nigerian government, that a detachment of the Nigerian security forces made up of the Nigerian Army, Police and the Department of Security Services (DSS), thronged against Biafrans who converged in their numbers to rally in solidarity, the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th US President, yet in Port Harcourt. The flags of the United States of America, Russia, Israel and that of Biafra were forcefully confiscated and burnt in broad daylight as if Nigeria was at war with the US government. Till date, the Buhari led central government has bluntly not deemed it fit to tender unreserved apology to the nations concerned in that dastardly act. Flags of nations, it must be noted, are cherished national symbols.

(4) The shameful and disgusting scenario painted by the rented miscreants who claimed to be Nigerian Lawyers that congregated at the US Embassy in Abuja, should also be recalled. They threatened fire and brimstone against the American government should it fail to accept the Nigerian government's declaration that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,  is a terrorist organization. This would have precipitated a serious diplomatic row between the two countries if the US government had not applied diplomacy in handling that grave executive impunity and lawlessness of the Nigerian government.

(5) It was a tipping point when the Nigerian government representative at the United Nations General Assembly, voted against the United States interest on Jerusalem during the world body's resolution on the matter.

With the above stipulated points, it becomes undeniably clear therefore, that anyone expecting President Donald Trump to hobnob with the Nigerian government is just not only being unfair but gravely demented. I am using this medium to further request that the US government of President Trump should put in motion, modalities that will facilitate the demarcation of Biafra territories from the Islamic terrorist Nigeria, with the required attention. This is the only feasible and legitimate revenge that could tame the rascality and challenge of Nigeria against the powerful American superiority and authority globally. If Donald Trump decides today to overtly or covertly fast track this Biafra restoration process, all these Hausa-Fulani Islamic cum caliphated cabals behind these menace, would undoubtedly be permanently dealt with.

The African Commission on Human and People's Rights, which reports to the African Union (AU) is a quasi-judicial body tasked with promoting and protecting human rights and collective peoples rights throughout the African continent as well as interpreting the African Charter on Human and Peoples rights and adjudication of individual complaints brought before the Commission against member States.

On March 8, 2018, the Commission issued a caution letter to President Muhammadu Buhari in a landmark ruling indicting the Federal Government and its Armed forces of grossly violating the right of the Indigenous People of Biafra {IPOB}and her supreme leader, Citizen Nnamdi Kanu. The Nigerian government was warned to desist from taking any further action against Nnamdi Kanu and the Indigenous People of Biafra.

The African Commission on Human and Peoples Rights complaint placed three main issues for the consideration of the commission, to wit: Nnamdi Kanu's trial, Operation Python Dance and its aftermaths in the Southeast of Nigeria including the military invasion of Nnamdi Kanu's family home in Umuahia, and declaration of IPOB as a terrorist organization.

Following the wake of unabated genocidal clampdown orchestrated by the Federal Government of Nigeria to the non-violent Biafran populace, the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) led by Citizen Nnamdi Kanu, who are lawfully exercising their inclinable right for self-determination as in the United Nations charter for the right of every indigenous people of which Nigeria is a signatory.

Intervention of Africa Commission for Human and Peoples rights in this case is a welcome development and also a way of redeeming African image though, they ought to have come to the matter long before now, having investigated and discovered on how brutal the Nigerian Government had been since the illegal arrest and incarceration of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, since 14th October, 2015.

Ever since then, there are lots of questions from different angles, asking if there would be any positive change to stop and compel Nigerian Government to apply some diplomacy in resolving the rising tension caused by the use of military might after all. Many right groups such as Amnesty International, Inter Society for Civil Liberty, political analysts and International Community had earlier testified and condemned the action of Muhammadu Buhari and his Armed Forces in totality but nothing seems to have changed other than continuous massacre and maiming of Biafrans in different parts of Nigeria.

While we commend ACHPR's effort so far, we therefore call on them to do the needful, by guiding\teaching the President of Nigeria on what self-determination is all about. Just like he always agitates for other countries like Western Sahara and Palestinian State, during the United Nation summit annually, he should as well lead by example by first of all releasing the entire Biafran activists in different Nigerian Prisons and detention facilities. Followed by initiating a democratic process of referendum as demanded by the people without further hesitation. What is good for the goose is also good for the gander!

Finally, Africa Commission for Human and Peoples Rights, should also petition International bodies if the Nigerian Government fails to provide the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu whose  whereabout is yet to be ascertained, since the Nigerian Army invaded his home and massacred not less than 28 armless persons and made away unascertained number of his kingsmen on 14th of September, 2017. They should as a matter of urgency, free Benjamin Mmadubugwu, David Nwawuisi, Bright Chimezie, Chidiebere Onwudiwe and hundreds of others from different Prison custody.

Self determination is the right of every indigenous people and not an act of overthrowing a government, while referendum is the best way of knowing how confident our people are in the unity of an expired concocted British fraudulent entity called Nigeria via referendum.

Once again they have gathered
Disguising as agents of light
Looking for souls to destroy
From every angle they are sprouting out
With melodious sweet rhythm
With  glorious angelic voices
Singing fabricated lies of "crucifixion"
Calling a white cattle black
Reviewing a black truth at night
Where no one can see it
Instead of noon day when all are awake
Yes they are out!
At the hour of evil operation
At the darkest hour of the night
With their 30 pieces of silver
Winning souls to their kingdom
Preparing to battle the righteous one
The holy and chosen one
The anointed prophet and his establishment
Because they presumed he is no more
Because they believed that he has been silenced
Because they considered the glorious end to be near
They now have a cause to merry
Their hearts leap for joy
Yes we have made it! they said
Fear not Biafrans!
IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu are like Noah’s ark
It is built on a divine mandate
No amount of sea waves can sink her
IPOB is unsinkable
Drowning is never her portion in the red Sea
Gold and Silver of the Egyptians shall hold some captives in the slave land
Reject Pharoah and his gifts
Aim at your freedom and the freedom of your children children
The mandate for the restoration of our nation is with IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu
Follow them and you shall be saved
The sprouting of this evil men,
The wolves in sheep clothings
Is the fulfillment of the prophetic declaration of the prophet.
Don’t be weary in spirit
Only prepare yourselves and you mind
Those agents of darkness are yet to do their worst
Yes they are yet to do it
Just as God gave the devil power to tempt Job,
So also our leader was given  the same power they think they can stop Biafra from coming! Lie!
They were given the power
But the end shall justify the means
All ye powers of evil
Why have you chosen to operate at night?
Why have you chosen to disguise yourselves?
Must it be in the absence of Nnamdi Kanu that you make the highest noise?
The casting of Lucifer out of the kingdom is for the Supreme power to be known
We have known you and is left for us to deal  decisively with you and your likes
Your territorial inhabitants has been caved out and there you shall abide forever.
 IPOB under the Supreme leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a global family
She is indestructible
 IPOB is uncountable! Scattered all over the world
Why I am not bothered is because without Judas Iscariot, the glory of Jesus wouldn’t have been known
We remain more than resolute
We are prepared for this faithful day and days beyond
We shall watch and see to the end of It all.
It is well with our souls

Nnamdi Kanu

He ignited the light
An unquenchable light

He ignited Spirits
Invisible Spirits

He ignited knowledge
Unplayable knowledge

He ignited power
Undefeatable power

He ignited life
An immortal life

He ignited wisdom
Unlimited wisdom

He ignited courage
Fearless courage

He ignited a "Sit at Home" order
The "Site at Home" rocked to Benue

He ignited justice
Injustice vanished away

He ignited the "end to Nigeria"
Everyone clamours for Freedom

He ignited all the Animals
Snakes, Rats and Monkeys responded

He foretold how the Fulanis would come
Before our own eyes it manifest(ing) just as he said

He foretold about a certain imposter named "Jubril
And before our own eyes the world is confirming it

He promised never to pay a dim to any media house
Today our news is making headlines globally

He said we would be killed
And we were mimed,  subjugated, killed

He said Biafra will come at last
And today Biafra is here!

I hail thee the great Kanu
I hail thee Biafrans' redeemer
I hail thee fear conqueror !
I hail thee Buhari's nightmare!
I hail thee the black man full of wisdom!

Come quick! oh come!
 Come out from the death trap!
 Come out
from the secret cell!
We need your voice! Come!
We need your prophecies
We need your wisdom Come!
We need your Consolations

Delay not oh great Kanu!
We await your final mission!
We await your final command!
We await to see the last push for Nigeria!
Come Kanu and heal our souls!

The Prosecuting Counsel representing the Nigerian government has once again disobeyed the order of the court presided over by Justice Binta Nyako in the charges bothering on treasonable felony against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and other IPOB trio currently detained in Kuje Prison. Hence, Justice Binta Nyako should allow justice to prevail this time around by releasing these agitators from Prison pending when the Prosecuting Counsel is ready to file the amended charges as ordered by her lordship, Justice Binta Nyako. It could be recalled that at the last court sitting in January 2018, Justice Binta Nyako ordered the Prosecutor to file amended charges against the remaining defendants so that the case could continue as the whereabouts of the first defendant,  Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is still unknown since the Nigerian Army invaded his home on September 14th, 2017 and took him to unknown destination. As it is at the moment, in less than 24 hours to the next Court sitting, the Prosecuting Counsel representing the Nigerian government is yet to file his response to the order or file the amended charges against the remaining defendants as ordered by her lordship, Justice Binta Nyako.

It is on this ground that  people of good conscience all over the world must demand that Justice Binta Nyako should respect her judicial authority by releasing these agitators  remanded in Kuje Prison since 3 years ago. By this, the Court can then await the amended charges that would be filed by the Prosecuting Counsel. Justice Binta Nyako and her judicial career and oath will descend into the valley of infamy if she refuses to release these agitators should the Prosecuting Counsel disobeys Court orders this time around. If Mr Shaibu Labaran fails to file the amended charges against these remaining agitators, it will simply mean that the Nigerian government has no case with them and therefore, they should be released on bail come March 20, 2018 Court sitting because they have been in Prison for nearly three years without any trial. As the whole world is earnestly looking forward to seeing how Justice Binta Nyako will handle the case, she should be courageous enough to exert her judicial authority in calling a spade a spade over the executive impunity of the Nigerian government against these Biafran agitators.

It is contained in the Nigerian Constitution that nobody or organization or authority will have any obnoxious reason to keep anybody in detention without proper trial and conviction. But the body language of Justice Binta Nyako in the past has given the Prosecuting Counsel representing Nigerian government  the audacity to keep these young agitators in  detention unlawfully for almost three years without trial. Should Justice Binta Nyako say "NO" to injustice come next Court sitting, the Prosecuting Counsel will sit up in the case and Justice Binta Nyako's prestige will return to her but if she continues to do the bidding of the obnoxious desire of the Nigerian government, then she will make caricature of the Nigerian judiciary. The only option available for Justice Binta Nyako to restore her battered judicial image is just to release these agitators on the ground of the refusal of the Prosecuting Counsel to file the amended charges against these remaining agitators. As the date is fast approaching, we keep our fingers crossed.
