NIGERIA CAN’T BE ONE, THERE IS HATRED: WE SHALL GET BIAFRA WITHOUT BLOODSHED- MR IBU

NIGERIA CAN’T BE ONE, THERE IS HATRED: WE SHALL GET BIAFRA WITHOUT BLOODSHED- MR IBU

Mr. Ibu with some members of Family writers
INTERVIEW: The popular Nollywood star John Okafor known as Mr Ibu, well celebrated among his fans for his comic roles. He is a comedian one cannot resist, you will fall into laughter for just his physique, he has lost the difference between scene and behind the scene. Always playing a comic role in everything he does, he entertained a select team of Family writers/journalist during a lengthy interview on the Nigeria vs Biafra issue.
Speaking to Biafran Herald (family writers/journalists) correspondent’ IFEANYI CHIJIOKE, CHIMA ONYEKACHI AND ISSAC OKONKWO SOMTO he noted a lot of things and discussed some key issues, he proffered solution and prayed for caution. He charged Biafrans to continue being lawful and apply intelligence in Biafra restoration exercise to make sure war is avoided. He also called for the relevant offices, bodies and persons that are responsible for conduct of referendum to do as quick as possible to save another bloodbath of Biafrans in what he termed as repeat of 1967.

He however maintained that everything he said is his personal view and not mandating anyone, he further reminded that he has nothing to do with politics but urged for a political resolution of Biafra agitation than killing Biafrans and imprisoning them for lawfully and peacefully agitating for self-determination.
He questioned why peaceful protesters must be shot to death and wondered if carrying of placards had became unlawful. He decried the hatred of Igbos by Hausa/fulani and Yorubas. He frowned at Kunle vs Alhaji leaked phone conversation and cried that Biafrans will be in great mess if we fail to restore Biafra this time and finally maintained that there is no love among the three nations that made up of Nigeria and hence there is need to talk, restructure Nigeria to favour everyone or make demarcation for peace to reign.


EXCERPTS__

HOW DO YOU SEE BIAFRA AGITATION UNDER NNAMDI KANU?

That Nnamdi Kanu, the issue between Nigeria government and Kanu, let me tell you, before now, my own idea o! From my view, people are being marginalized, Eastern Nigeria is being marginalized(southsouth and southeast), talking about geo political zones, majorly the three major languages in Nigeria, each of us, we do not like each other, we don’t mingle quick, Yorubas don’t find it easy with the Igbos, Hausa/fulani don’t find it easy with Yorubas or Igbos, Hausa/fulani might probably find it easy with Yorubas but not totally, so I discover that all of us being together in one umbrella keep generating odd, not workable and we Biafrans have to apply caution and be watchful, in the case of doing this (agitating for Biafra), if we make mistake(fail to achieve Biafra), it will go down far to our generations and to everybody.

 Let us go back to Nnamdi Kanu, the court said, if we respect the jury, the court said release him, for my part, irrespective of whoever is in that prison, they should release that man, let’s have a dialogue, let’s talk, if the government of this country wants Biafra to go, we will go, if they don’t want Biafra to go, let us have a dialogue, then open a discussion, allow a pool (referendum), welcome advice, welcome congregation, let’s hear them talk, majority carries the vote, if majority says let Biafra go, Biafra will go, we have no choice than to go. If majority says please stay, let us change hand in administration, so that it can favour up and favour down. Then my own advice to us is, we should pipe low and wait but in a situation where there is no room for dialogue and then the best way is let us apply caution and look for a better way to do it without much strain of creating things like to endanger peoples lives and all that.

Mr. Ibu
It is not a small deal, it is not a day job. It has to be; a lot of technicality will come in, because we human beings, we are being crafty just for nothing, sometimes we are crafty. The issue of Biafra is not news of today, it has been that anybody on the centre knows there have been issue of Biafra or no Biafra and consistently Biafrans are killed, our blood flow, even sometimes when you talk and touch your chest, people should know life is on your chest, even spirit knows life is on your chest (Nnamdi Kanu is very mean and finally ready to die or give him Biafra and he can do anything for Biafra); so what am I talking about. If Biafra is ready to go, let there be dialogue, amicably; then there should be demarcation of boundary; but if there is no room for don’t go; then there should be amendment of treatment; there should be equal balanced government to favour both side for now.

THE PEACEFUL PROTEST RAGING ACROSS EASTERN NIGERIA OF SOUTHSOUTH AND SOUTHEAST, PEOPLE ARE BEING MASSACRED, WHAT’S YOUR TAKE?

There is no need for shooting now; to me.(he pleadingly said) that’s why I keep saying that there should be dialogue; there is no need of shooting and killing peaceful protesters hence it is a peaceful protest and carrying of placards., then the police should guard the crowd from going astray, it is wrong shooting the crowd; to me it is wrong; they should find a way; it happens in so many countries, it is not only here in Nigeria; there are other countries, even in Russia they go on peaceful demonstration; the government guard them, they deliver their massage and go back, they should be able to listen and hear when the crowd is talking.

PRESIDENT BUHARI HAS FLOUTED COURT ORDERS AND REFUSED TO AKNOWLEDGE THE PROTESTERS AND NUMEROUS CALL FOR DIALOGUE, WHAT HAVE YOU TO TELL HIM?

I cannot speak to my president so easily like that but I have advice for him, anybody in charge of publication should be able to pass this message across to Buhari. Biafra agitation is going out of hand now, before it goes worse; let’s find out what is their problem and seek a way to solve it; our country; we are big but we don’t need war anymore; as a matter of fact, let who is in position to handle this matter handle it with enough intelligence, if you keep quiet, it does not solve the problem.
  
HAS NOLLYWOOD TRIED TO WADE INTO THIS ISSUE AFFECTING THEIR COUNTRY TO SOLVING IT
  
Well we can’t say we didn’t hear about Biafra agitation, killing and unlawful detention of Kanu, we heard about it, no script can come in, nobody will treat their scripts pertaining that now; because what we are doing is commercial job, we do it to sale, because if anybody puts his money in that will only sale here and be very careful of handling it, because we are serving both side (Nigeria and Biafra), we are entertainment industry for everybody. That is why you can never see me in any campaign; you can never see me take microphone and say vote this person, because it is a dangerous thing, if other person lost, you know what is gonna be. Everybody can call us to anchor programme, you know we feed our children through that (he burst into his comic laughter as we could not hold back) shey you understand? What we are after is one to put food on our table; so we don’t as we are not part of it, even-though we( Biafrans) are in support, but we try to keep away because we serve the public.
 
ARE YOU IN SUPPORT OF BIAFRA RESTORATION BY KANU?

Whether you like it or not, I am from the east and that makes me a Biafran man, understand? What I am advising is that we can do it without shedding blood. We need dialogue, settlement and supply technicality to make sure that when Biafra goes her own way, both countries can still relate to each other.

IF REFERENDUM IS CALLED, WILL YOU VOTE FOR BIAFRA OR NIGERIA?

  Technically, I have answered that question, I am being technical here to answer this question, it is obvious that these three major languages in Nigeria, there is huge hatred, especially for the Biafrans. I will play something for you now (brought out his phone)
  WHAT IS IT
  A phone call between Hausa/fulani and Yoruba, ALHAJI AND KUNLE.
  CONTINUES
Sometimes people from the North don’t like the Igbos, i will play something for you now. Then the Yorubas all because Biafrans dey progress fine, not that they cannot take the risk of going into trade and all that and when they see Biafrans invade into their zone, build houses, sometimes they are not happy. That is where they picked that information, an Hausa man said there is gonna be property whatsoever by the government, that Hausa man who owns a house in Lagos will pay 10000(ten thousand), Yoruba will pay 5000(five thousand) and Biafran man will pay 1000000(one million). Why must somebody say such a thing? Even if they hate Biafrans, they should not say it out, wait for us to come to your domain, then you can get your anger on whoever that is in your domain.

  1. VERY IMPORTANT INFO: Buhari and nigerian soldiers hijacked oil ship and crews at bakasi penusila, though its his plan with the crews and the oil dealers to tell the world that with BIAFRANS are doing is terrorism and also to use it as evidence against nnamdi kanu in court, the plans it for them to do it and also claimed after that nigerian soldiers has rescued them, then they will parade some people as the terrorists and release them after, am some white crews who are also part of the plan will come to court to testify against nnamdi kanu and also sell to the press, share this and tell the whole world about buhari next evil plan against biafra and nnamdi kanu, buhari is evil, this is military strategies to nail biafra and kanu but the truth is out, WE THE PIRATES, WE ARE THE GREAT SAILORS OF ATLANTIC HIGH SEA, PASTRA NOSTRA IS OUR DAILY ROUTINE, WE HAVE EVERY INFORMATION ON HIGH SEA, THIS BUHARI AT WORK
