A popular Biafran proverb said "Onye Ụgbọ gburu, ñtị chiri ya". This ancient Biafran proverb is simply translated thus "Any person killed by a train is deaf and dumb".

This ancient Biafran proverb is going to fulfill on the stubborn Biafrans residing in Sokoto, Kano, Kaduna, Jos, Abuja, Yola, Maiduguri, Bauchi, Gombe, Minna and every part of the emerging Arewa Republic which is going to be one of the tripod sovereign States taking shape from the already sunk Nigeria of shame, should those Biafrans fail to run for their lives by relocating their businesses to Biafraland on or before September 30, 2017. It is a welcome development as the Coalition of Northern Youths have issued an ultimatum to Biafrans to leave North on or before September 30, 2017 or meet an unnamed dangerous consequences.

Chukwu Okike Abiama of Biafrans, our ancestors, the fruitful land of Biafra, Biafrans all over the world and entire humanity are going to stand as witnesses against such stubborn Biafrans who will ignore this ultimatum given by the blood-thirsty Arewa Youths whom have invariably declared that Biafrans should leave Nigeria for them and establish their own sovereign state of Biafra. The youths of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is appreciating and commending the Northern youths for taking a matured step of going according to 21st century lay down bloodless declaration for Biafrans in the order to quit North. It is a thing of joy that Northern Youths are now taking the steps of civilized world than using senseless killings to register a displeasure. Nobody including Biafrans should have reasons to blame Arewa Youths should they begin to take drastic actions after September 30, 2017.

It is upon this ground that youths of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide under the Supreme Command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (De Great) hereby ask all Biafrans residing in the North the following questions:

1. Is it not the time to know that Biafra restoration is few days away from today and thereby think home?

2. Will you people prefer your so called business empires to your dear lives?

3. Who said that there is any business you are doing in the north that will not succeed in Biafraland?

4. How long will Biafrans pay dearly with their lives in their defense of unworkable Nigeria of shame & think twice?

These are and many more questions are directly going to Biafrans residing in Northern Nigeria. Three months is good enough time for Biafrans to put their businesses together and relocate same to Enugu, Aba, Onitsha, Abakaliki, Calabar, Uyo, Port-Harcourt, Warri, Owerri and other Biafran cities. As for the declaration of Northern Youths, it is a welcome development because Biafra is few days away from restoration. The only thing which IPOB hate about the declaration of Northern Youths is saying that Igbo-Biafrans who has as a single tribe contributed 70% of the development of Nigeria, be same people whom the Arewa Youths described as architect of the failure of the dying Nigeria.

IPOB youths wish that Arewa youths should tell us what has northerners contributed positively to Nigeria if not just corruption, terrorism, senseless killings, tribalism, nepotism, feudalism, bigotry and all round social decadence. IPOB wish to make Arewa youths to understand that Igbo-Biafrans provides 90% of income taxes and other revenues in Northern Nigeria. Igbo-Biafrans pay 90% of House rentages and utility bills in Northern Nigeria. Igbo-Biafrans owns 60% of modern Houses in Northern Nigeria. Igbo-Biafrans built industries in Kano, Jos and many cities in Northern Nigeria. In every starting 11 players of both Super Eagles and Super Falcons of Nigeria, Igbo-Biafrans makes upto 7 to 8 players in the line-up. Nigeria influencial movie industry known as Nollywood is saturated with Igbo-Biafrans.

A visit to your google search, will convince you that Igbo-Biafran is the father of Internet innovation in person of Philip Emeagwali representing Nigeria. An Igbo-Biafran is only African whom has served as Common Wealth Secretary-General, that is Chief Emeka Anyaoku representing Nigeria. An Igbo-Biafran is the only African to have contested and nearly become Catholic Pope, that Cardinal Francis Arinze representing Nigeria. An Igbo-Biafran is still known as the father of African literature, that was Prof Chinua Achebe representing Nigeria. An-Igbo Biafran is the only African to have contested has nearly become world Bank president before Barrack Obama foiled it with Western World politics, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

Based on these analysis, can these gullible Northern youths bereft of history tell IPOB their yardstick for describing Igbos as luggages of liabilities which Nigeria has carried for too long? If they can't respond to our questions, they should keep quiet forever because they are real parasites to Nigeria.


  1. Well, those whom they are speaking to should obey the order. The facts are:
    1. How many Igbos have become REALLY rich by living in the Hausa-Fulani enclave?
    2. I was there as a youth copper and did not see any truly prosperous Igbo man.
    3. The summary has been that the Igbos make a few cash there, and then one riot or another takes the whole thing away, and they come running home. So, truly there has never been any good thing coming out from the enclave.
    4. The paltry sums the Igbos make in this God-forsaken place called the Hausa-Fulani land cannot be equated with the number of lives we have lost there to their barbaric ways. Can anyone equate the life of just one Igbo man with the little "stomach infrastructure" sums made there?
    5. The truth is that even the Igbo businesses out there are much with other visitors than with these people - except for motor parts.
    6. There are many who went there with a lot of money but returned empty handed after losing some of their family members. In their best form, this Hausa-Fulani land presents nothing but backwardness, pains, and death.
    This ranting by the so called youths is masterminded by the Nigerian government and the Hausa-Fulani. The ploy is to threaten Igbos and possibly hear "fake Igbo leaders" cry out or condemn IPOB. But their attempt has failed - just like every other thing they have tried. So far, the only group that has been stupid to make the kind of statement they are expecting has been the ones that call themselves Ohaneze Youths. The rest have failed them. We should all thank those who issued the declaration for their kind offer. Igbos should please discountenance all the mess about El Rufai and Buhari asking for arrest of anybody. It is all part of their silly gimmick - the intention being to show that they are "nationalist" ( one of the words they stigmatized us with by tagging us the Secessionist) who love their country so much as to condemn their youths . In those days, they created those words to paint Ojukwu and the rest of us black as if secession was anti-Christ or an intention to end the world. Surely it has fallen into the ditch this time around. They have only brought Biafra closer.
