Biafra: What Will Save Endangered Christians In Nigeria

Biafra: What Will Save Endangered Christians In Nigeria

By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi
For Family Writers Press International.

Priests and Pastors in Nigeria are the greatest advocate of peace. Every Sunday, they are seen speaking into the minds of their faithfuls, urging them to embrace peace and pray to God Almighty for him to restore peace to Nigeria. They ask their congregation to know that as Christians, what they owe to their leaders is prayers.

This have made the people the puppets of the politicians, as the people keep praying for God to come down and change the mindset of the politicians, so that they will stop looting and start providing infrastructure for the people. However, the more they pray, the more the politicians keep looting them dry. The hospitals in Nigeria are nothing short of slaughter houses. There is absolutely no infrastructural facility for the people. The people don't even know that it is the duty of the government to provide housing for them. The teachings from the men of God seem to have cowed the people into accepting virtually every abuse, neglect and ineptitude from the government.

The Christian faith abhors violence; hence the priests and pastors have made sure the people are so peaceful. I am a Christian and I am peaceful too; but are we to become too peaceful not to rise up in defense of our lives?

We saw the Islamic extremists behead Adamawa CAN President. We saw how a pastor and his wife were killed in one of the northern states as they were tending to their farms.

We saw this same Islamic extremists kill two Catholic priests celebrating Holy Mass in Benue, together with other 17 congregation.

We saw them shoot and kill a Catholic priest in Enugu state.
What of the woman-pastor killed in Abuja by these Islamists just for preaching the gospel? Not excluding the seminarian from Uga , Anambra State killed in Kaduna state. Many attacks in many towns and villages. Islamic Fulani Herdsmen went to Agatu in Benue state and killed over 300 people in one night.

Where is the peace you have been praying for? Yes, I believe in prayers, yet I don't think we should only pray and do nothing.

This is the time for pastors and priests in Biafra Land to stop standing with the government and for once stand with the people and for the people. The government have proven to be the enablers of corruption. They are in support of the activities of the Islamists. If you doubt me, then you tell me how many Islamic Fulani herdsmen are presently under arrest in Nigeria? How come a community will be attacked for hours by herdsmen without the security operatives coming to the rescue? Are you not seeing them pay captured Boko Haram terrorists and recruit them into the military. Didn't you hear them say that a repentant Boko Haram member can become the president of Nigeria?

What peace are you still preaching? Is it when they kill us all that you will understand that you have to tell people to start doing something? Do you think an attack on your congregation will leave you alive? Can't you see what is happening?

Without revolution, nothing will change. Without the people rising up, the politicians will never stop. Prayers without work is dead. Why then do you forget that the people should not just pray without doing something? Martin Luther King was a priest. He prayed and as well did something. We need our pastors and priests at this moment. Enough of the silence.

The era of telling the people to go get their PVC and vote is long gone. The Federal government of Nigeria doesn't care again if voters refuses to vote for their anointed candidate or not. They will just rig their political puppet into office, and when they can't, there is the supreme Court that will do it for them.

Listen,

There is no amount of prayers that will keep people that believe in killing and destruction at peace with those who don't have such ideology. Relevant positions steering the affairs of Nigeria are occupied by 98% Muslims, including different security agencies which are equally headed by Muslims. Not forgetting that in Islam, Christians are seen as infidels. And according to the teaching of Islam, infidels are always meant to be killed.

This is exactly why we are demanding for Biafra. We want a situation where we can protect ourselves from annihilation from those that doesn't believe in religious freedom.

The Hypocrisy Of People That Cry Over A Bitter Truth

The Hypocrisy Of People That Cry Over A Bitter Truth

By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi
For Family Writers Press International.

For sometime now, we have seen many men and women who are in love with the political system in Nigeria, say that the only reason they hate and don't support IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is because of insults. 'IPOB is insulting our elders, governors, and Senators,' they would always say, while pontificating as if they care about the people.

IPOB led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been consistent in demanding justice for Biafrans. They have asked for a stop in the massacring of Christians and Biafrans in Nigeria by the Fulani herdsmen. However, instead of Nigeria government to do something about this, they resorted in killing more IPOB members and imprisoning them.
The worse is that the leaders in Biafra Land are in cohort with the Fulani, in the killing of their fellow Biafrans.

Fulani Herdsmen keep killing people across Biafra Land and beyond. In Ugwuta, the Fulani herdsmen cut down an old man of about 70 years. In Anambra, they cut a lady into pieces and had her body littered in the bush. It is such a horrible sight to behold. Also in the same Anambra, precisely at Ihiala, they attacked a house, stole money, beat the family and kidnapped their 22 year old daughter. In Enugu, a handful of villagers have been killed, including a seminarian and a Catholic priest. All killed by Fulani herdsmen. Our people can no more go to their farms without fearing for their lives. In some places, at Anioma in Delta State, it is making the rounds that the residents pay the Fulani herdsmen before they can go to their farms to cultivate, else they will face attacks and death.

All the people shouting about insults are not worried that we are now slaves of the Fulani in our own land. They are not worried that Fulani herdsmen come from the North, kidnap our women, rape and cut them into pieces. What worries these men and women is the purported insults they receive from IPOB.

Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano proudly stated that Miyetti Allah is part of his government. He said that any Igbo man killed by Fulani Herdsmen, will attract 500,000 Naira as a fine. That is what a life of an Igbo is worth for him. A means to make more money.
The Fulani herdsmen he proudly admitted into his government are regarded worldwide as the 4th deadliest terror organisation. It is this same Obiano that read out the proscription of IPOB on behalf of South East governors forum. IPOB is a peaceful movement that only uses peaceful protest to demand for referendum. But Governors of South East want an IPOB member killed and jailed, but Fulani herdsmen terrorists they allowed and incorporated as part and parcel of their government. Same people killing their own people.

John Nnia Nwodo who despises IPOB and even accused IPOB of bombing his residence, also told entire ndị Igbo to rather kill him than attack the Fulani herdsmen killing them. None of them cares for the people.

The entire political elites in South East and South South have been all silent as Fulani herdsmen run riot in our regions. Till today, no single Fulani Herdman has been arrested in the entire South East. But they keep going around seeking for IPOB members and arresting them from their homes and shops.

In all these, what worries some people is those calling out others slaving for terrorists and killing their own people. Can you now see how hypocritical you all are? Who will respect an elder who despises his own, but welcomes, employ and adores terrorists killing their own people? Do you now see why I call all of them hypocrites?

Believe me when I say it. They are just using a weak excuse of being insulted to ignore the truth in what IPOB is saying. They don't want a change for good for their people because of what they are gaining from the rot that is one Nigeria. These set of people are simply 'men of the stomach' who cares only about themselves. We must beware of them.

The Insensitivity Of Those Supporting South East Leaders

The Insensitivity Of Those Supporting South East Leaders

By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi
For Family Writers Press International.

To start with: Should Ohanaeze keep quiet as Fulani herdsmenin less than two months murder more than 10 Ndị Igbo, including women whom they cut into pieces?

Should governors, senators and house of representatives members keep mute?

Will these defenders still find their voice if their own daughter, sister or any family member get cut into pieces by Fulani herdsmen?

We should try and answer these questions. I had tried to excuse these people defending Ohanaeze and Southeast governors in a bid to understand them, yet I can't understand.

I have followed most of them both on Twitter and Facebook, and I found out that those defending these irresponsible elders have many followers. It means they were recruited to do what they are doing. You see why they should not be ignored. They are recruits.

How can people stand with leaders who do nothing as their people are kidnapped, raped and massacred? What does it take Ohanaeze to at least issue a statement? Demand that the do nothing and see nothing governors wake from slumber and do something? We are not asking Ohanaeze to go and fight the Fulani herdsmen. Are we insane? Who tells old people to go and physically confront AK47 fully armed Fulani herdsmen terrorists? The fight is that of the youths, but the elders must do their very important part in a time like this.

To tackle the atrocities of Fulani herdsmen in Yoruba land, Yoruba leaders thought deeply and came out with Amotekun. Some governors in the West made a law criminalizing open grazing by herdsmen. Tell me why Yoruba youths won't respect such elders.

But in Igbo land, we have hopeless and senseless leaders who would rather place 500,000 Naira bounty on the head of every Igbo man killed by Fulani Herdsmen. We have leaders who would proudly tell Ndị Igbo that they should rather kill them before they can kill any Fulani herder killing and raping them. These type of leaders are what these integrity-challenged individuals are asking us to respect.

Yul Edochie made this comment via his Twitter handle:
"If a man slaps you and instead of slapping him back you rather go and punch your own brother for not speaking for you.
The man will realize that you are a big coward and he’ll slap you again and again.
Ndi Igbo wake up.
Stop fighting yourselves, fight your enemies," he tweeted.
His tweet was as a result of the demands made by IPOB Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu over the dormancy of Ohaneze leadership. Can you now see how insane some of these celebrities can be. Can Yul Edochie tell us what is the work of leaders in a society? How is asking leaders to speak out translate to fighting them? What about asking leaders that cannot defend their people to resign?

What is the work of Ohanaeze if not to protect the interest of the people? Why then are they silent as terrorists keep killing us?
What is the primary work of the south east governors, if not to protect lives and properties? Can you now see how insane those supporting these leaders are?

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu that speaks for all, including Biafrans and both Nigeria Christians and Muslims is whom these people are fighting.
The good news is that they are in the minority and the majority of the people are with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

You simply need to advice these leaders to speak out or face the full unstoppable wrath of the people.

Python Dance And The Conspiracy Of Igbo Leaders

Python Dance And The Conspiracy Of Igbo Leaders

By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi
For Family Writers Press International.

It is a horrible evening on September 17, 2017. I have already seen the spinning news of the Nigeria media. They said there is a face-off between Nigeria Military and IPOB members in Afara Ukwu Ibeku, the home of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. I immediately logged into my Facebook account and saw that it is actually an unprovoked attack from the Nigeria Army. Suddenly, Nigeria Army have relocated their base to Nnamdi Kanu's house for their show of force. They kept trying to make it into the palace of the father of the IPOB leader, but were stopped by the barricade bodies of IPOB members who stood firmly at the gate without any weapon.

IPOB Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had just been granted bail with some outrageous bail conditions. He has already proclaimed that President Buhari is dead right inside his father's house. And this attracted the government who made every effort to silence him once and for all. The truthfulness of that claim came staring Nigerians face to face two years after. But that is not what this article is about.

I am of the opinion that, irrespective of how Nigeria is structured, no federal government can go after peaceful youths of any region without the concent or approval of the leaders of the said region. So there is no how Nigeria government can set out to kill IPOB Leader and his followers without the governors, Ohanaeze and notable political elites in Igbo land giving such plan a nod of approval. That is because they won't keep silent should you go down to slaughter their sons and daughters.

The South East leaders signed and approved the Python Dance 1, 2 & 3. They first cleared the way with the proscription of IPOB in the entire Igbo land. The proscription has already proved to the world that IPOB is a dangerous group, so it is important that the federal government comes in. If Igbo leaders can proscribe them, it simply means they are a threat to the society. That is common sense. If you are intelligent enough, and can use your God given common sense properly, you will know that the proscription is an invitation to the federal government. In other words, it is a planned deal.

Prior to that Python Dance massacre, IPOB is just a group using peaceful protest to demand for referendum for Biafra. So tell me what offence that necessitated the proscription by the South East leaders. Also, IPOB leader has been in and out of meetings with the leaders in South East. So tell me what warranted the killings that happened after.

Some unscrupulous people have tried to blame only the APC Federal government for the killings of many IPOB members during that unholy raid and consequent massacre. It is not entirely true. They did it with the backup of Igbo leaders.
Remember that the entire leadership of Igbo land were completely silent throughout period of the massacre. Not even one of them raised a voice as Nigeria military rained bullets on innocent youths. Youths they ought to be their father and provide maximum protection unto. You cannot condemn what you approved. It  became unreasonable for Ohanaeze to raise a voice in condemnation of what they actually plotted together, approved and supported.

A source confided that a top Ohanaeze leadership got an empty land and thousands of dollars just after the python dance. A reward for a job well done. But one thing that is certain is that Igbo leaders are totally compromised. Who could have known that the great Zik Of Africa was blackmailed by the British government to go into a coalition with the North? He could have told the Igbo people of those days that it is about the interest of Ndị Igbo to form a coalition with the North, and people would believe him, without knowing that it serves the interests of the North and Britain.

I am not surprised that South East governors, including Ohanaeze are silent in the face of Fulani herdsmen massacre of Ndị Igbo. Just yesterday, a man was butchered in Enugu state. That's after they cut a young girl into pieces and kidnapped another in Anambra. Yet those claiming to be leaders are all silent.
Those that supposed to task their leaders to do something are preoccupied with a rhetoric that asked the people to stone Nnia Nwodo for his silence as Fulani herdsmen keep killing ndị Igbo. Today, we can't farm in our own land due to the fear of the Fulani herdsmen.

Igbo leaders have blood on their hands. The blood of IPOB members they conspired and killed. How do you expect people to respect such leaders? How?

Africa: We All Have Our Moments

We All Have Our Moments

By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi
For Family Writers Press International.

One thing you must understand is that each and every one of us once believed in making Nigeria work again. We earnestly hoped for her to rise to understand that we can't continue in this unworkable 'Federal Feeding Bottle system of government'. We asked that we be returned back to regional government, because it will not only reposition the economy of Nigeria, it will also help in getting rid of all manners of injustice and marginalization. It might not be perfect, but it will help. In regional system, secession is a stone throw.

The more we ask for these things, the more we are mocked. We are constantly told that no matter what we do, we can never rule Nigeria. We were told right into our faces that we will continue being slaves to the North.

It reached a time we started  discovering the truth one after another. Which is the fact that Nigeria is never meant to be one. These discovery was private and personal to so many of us.

Prior to 2015, I started questioning for real, the oneness of Nigeria. It became so strong that I needed nothing, absolutely nothing to do with Nigeria. Not too many people here knew that I have written a lot for RESTRUCTURING. Lots of us who have done that, now understand that it is completely not feasible. Anyone still on it is simply wasting time, just like I wasted time in those days writing on something that will never happen.

I believe that every body has his moment of discovery. Before 2015, there are persons that were seriously telling people that Nigeria is irredeemable, but they were not taken seriously. 2015 came, a lot of eyes were opened and millions said to hell with Nigeria. But some still believed that somehow, Nigeria will be redeemed. They kept preaching until 2019, they saw hell. Right before everybody, Fulani perfected the greatest rigging of all times. They removed the Chief Justice of Nigeria and used him to steal Imo State mandate. With this, many were awakened and they joined to say enough is enough.

We all have our moments, but for sure, there are people that know that Nigeria is irredeemable, yet they are still pretending under PDP vs APC. Please count these set of people as enemies. Stop trying to convince them. They already know the truth, but are in it for the money. The greatest money making machine in South East now is betrayal and sabotage of our people.

That is why you see people write against their own people, saying they are not Igbo, but Nigerians.

To all of you that have realised the truth already, keep moving higher. It is through you that other brothers will see the light.

Indeed, Nigeria has killed enough, and we must stop them this time and break the evil yoke.

IPOB Imo State Coordinator On A Peace Mission To Ekwereazu, Mbaise

IPOB Imo State Coordinator On A Peace Mission To Ekwereazu, Mbaise




The Imo State Coordinator of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Abraham, during the last weekend, embarked on a peace trip to Ekwereazu - Mbaise. Before now, existed leadership squabbles in this part of Biafraland, on who rightly occupies fits into the coordinatorship position. Addressing the family, the State Coordinator harped on the need for them to fix their eyes on the (Biafra restoration project) and totally disengage from everything that is inimical to the IPOB set objectives. Officers should strive at all times to provide leadership to the brethren. He strictly warned against acts of disunity amongst other unhealthy/self serving activities.

Mazi Abraham asked them to get focused on the primary reason why they got enlisted into the IPOB struggle.  He further reminded the people of Ekwereazu that the Igbos formed All People's Progressive Alliance (APGA) primarily to clinch the Nigerian presidential seat for the Eastern region as claimed but all that, now tantamounts to a mere wishful thinking. That initial intent got sabotaged due to selfish interests  and other internal leadership tussles.

The State Coordinator unambiguously maintained before Ekwereazu Mbaise family members that Mazi Onyekachi Eke remains their Coordinator. Therefore, any other person claiming otherwise is only showing himself/herself as an agent of distraction in the struggle.

In an interview with  Mazi Onyekachi Eke, it was revealed that the opposition to his leadership was orchestrated by one Pastor Mike who hails from Ihite Aforougwu. The Pastor claimed that the Ekwereazu Mbaise Coordinator (Mazi Onyekachi Eke), is not an indigene of Umuokrika but rather, hails from Isiala-Ugwuru, Mbaise, and so unqualified to lead the people.

The State Coordinator however, enlightened the family that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), is purely undiscriminatory and so can select it's principal servants from any part of Biafraland so long such individuals are qualified members of the family. That someone is not an indigene of Ekwereazu Mbaise  does not in any way, make him/her ineligible for leadership within the locality a person resides. Mazi Abraham stressed that IPOB leadership in the State strictly abides by the laid down principles of IPOB High Command. The people of Ekwereazu Mbaise should desist forthwith, from forcing themselves into unmerited leadership positions and creating of divisions which serve as recipes for destruction. They were reminded of the part of the IPOB Oath of Allegiance which clearly stipulates: "If I do anything to endanger my fellow principal officer, may ChukwuOkike Abiama strike me dead". Let all be extremely careful, he further warned.

Mazi Chukwuka Fidelis, the Imo State Welfare Officer in his speech, reminded the Ekwereazu Mbaise family that the IPOB High Command has one core leader in the person of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu while in Imo State, Mazi Abraham is the Head Coordinator. In Ekwereazu Mbaise, it is Mazi Onyekachi Eke. This leadership structure has to be uncompromisingly followed and obeyed, he conclusively adviced.

IPOB Enugu State Inaugurates 4 New Family Units In Igboetiti Local Government Area

IPOB Enugu State Inaugurates 4 New Family Units In Igboetiti Local Government Area

Igboetiti local government area of Enugu State, Biafraland, is naturally blessed with vast portion of land. It is situated in Enugu-North Senatorial District. Virtually all the local government areas in the district are regarded as parts of Nsukka due to semblance in language and tradition.

On Thursday 25th June 2020, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Enugu State, embarked yet on another successful inauguration of additional families involving four (4) family units located in different communities within the Igboetiti local government area.

They are:

* Ochima Unit in Ochima community.

* Umu-Udo Unit in Ukehe community.

* Umu-Nko Unit in Umu-Nko community.

* Ama-Eke Unit in Ukehe community.

The inauguration of these units was coordinatedly led by the indefatigable Chief Mobilization Officer of Enugu State who also doubles as the Biafraland National Secretary, Mazi Chukz Egwuatu, principal servants of Enugu-North Senatorial District as well as those from the Igboetiti local government area.


Jubilation intermittently erupted as members of the newly/officially inaugurated units from the communities practically went agog celebrating, as IPOB presence became strongly registered.

Meanwhile, series of encouraging reports of improvement in Enugu-North (Nsukka axis) are trickling in. Few weeks back, results of enormous efforts of various principal servants with the mobilization department inclusive, have remained the motivational factor in the restoration push.

Group photographs  were however taken at the end of each inauguration within the communities, to relive the exciting and remarkable moments.
