There has been furnace on the Nigerian seat of power more especially, since the emergence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his ever formidable Indigenous People Of Biafra {IPOB},Who have been on the track, excising their right to self determination peacefully just as the Uinted Nations' charter on self determination and the indeginous people's rights permits.

However, the agitation for Biafra independence escalated immediately after President Mohammadu Buhari's led APC regime ascended to the highest political office in Nigeria, amid his dictatorial approach and failure to handle the legitimate agitation democratically, which led to the illegal arrest and unlawful detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for roughly two years without trial.

Not minding the secret abduction and unlawful incarceration of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the amiable leader of the people, there were serious human rights violation metted on unarmed Biafrans who could not bear the pain of seeing their leader, the orator, the savior of their {our} time to go the way of the likes of late Ken. Sarowiwa, Bola Igeh, M.K Abiola, Gen. Aguyi Ironsi of the blessed memories, who were brutally and unjustifiably murdered by the Nigerian power tusslers from the North, just because they were fighting for justice, equity and fair play among the Nigerian people, came out in millions to protest in the streets and demand his unconditional release. Thousands of peaceful unarmed Biafra protesters were openly shot at and gruesomely killed in  Anambra, Aba, Igweocha {Porth hacorth}, Delta state and many other parts of Biafraland for no justifiable reason, other than the fact that they were protesting for the release of their indefatigable leader as several courts of competent jurisdiction ordered, yet the Nigerian government and her DSS flaunted those court orders with impunity. After the mindless shooting to death of the unarmed Biafra protesters, about hundred were abducted and imprisoned without trial, while those that escaped the genocidal shooting were hospitalized with different degrees of life threatening gun shot injuries. Even till now there seems to be no slowing down on the secret abduction of Biafrans by the Nigerian security forces.

Due to the high level of injustice, tyrannical violation of laws and court orders by president Mohammadu Buhari led executive government, which was a direct contradiction to the fraudulent Nigerian constitution that he swore an oath to uphold and protect, many judges who could not dance to the evil tune of miscarriage of justice washed their hands off Kanu's seemingly unending case with the Nigerian government.

After a long legal battle with never say die and relentless spirit of IPOB and Biafrans in general, who stood their ground that the Nigerian government must obey court orders, the Nigerian federal high court four{4} situated in Abuja the capital city of this Lugardian edifice ,which is presided over by an Hausa/Fulani woman, a judge who severally somersaulted and twisted the judicial principles during the course of hearing Kanu's bail application, managed to grant him bail on health condition but not without the most stringent, inhumane, overlashing and unconstitutional bail conditions.

Before I go further, I would like to bring to the consciousness of my audience what bail is all about. Bail is the right of any accused person who is facing trial in order for him or her prepare very well for the case that awaits him or her and  for the benefit of doubt that he or she must be present in the court all through the period of his or her trial unless, if there is a critical issues that befalls him or her which borders mostly, in some cases severe health condition. Without being bias, it will be a breach or violation of anyone's fundamental human rights to face the kind of bail conditions given to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is a political prisoner. Therefore, any bail condition(s) that violates the fundamental human rights of any person is in itself illegal, inhumane and must be challenged legally.


In the  Nigerian 1999 constitution as amended states that the constitution is a no respecter of persons and in that case, every Nigerian citizen is equal before the law including the president who is the number one citizen. But 6th of June 2017, marked the day the Nigerian state became a full-fledged animal farm where all aninals(citizens) are not equal. It is on record today that on the 6th of June 2017, the Northern youths under the aegis of Arewa youth forum, issued a violent and genocidal quit notice ultimatum calling for mass killing of Biafrans resident in Northern Nigeria failing to vacate their land on or before 1st October. What surprised many was that the declaration of the quit notice was made openly in Arewa house, in Kaduna State which can only be done with the permission of the Kaduna State government in collaboration with Northern or Arewa elders. The declaration according to the quotations of the constitution of Nigeria, is more treasonable than what Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's self determination was tagged and what he was accused of by Mohammadu Buhari and his Gestapo DSS which made people including the governor of Kaduna state, Mr. Nasiru El-rufai to demand the Inspector General(IG) of police to arrest all the perpetrators and participants of that declaration and charge them to court but was not carried out due to sectional and tribalistic politics being played out in Nigeria owned by Northern cabals. And just recently, the Attorney General of the Nigerian federation, Mallami (SAN) has given reasons why the call for the arrest of those treasonous fellows is dead on arrival.

There is a saying that, you will not beat a child and as well deny him of crying. A situation whereby some people will be recognized  as untouchable citizens while others are relegated to slavery is not only unacceptable but barbaric and must be questioned by people of good conscience. And for the fact that even the indigenous Arewa people up North, who have since 1960s regarded themselves as the rightful owners (born to rule) of the British concocted Nigeria is not my worry, what is worrisome is that, they have as well refused to know and appreciate that what is good for the goose is also good for the ganders, hence their belief that Nigeria is entirely their forefathers estate which nobody have the right to govern except those from their enclave. Such mentality is timid, uncivilized, old fashioned and is not obtainable in any part of civilized world.

The hypocrisy of the Nigerian people is unfathomable in the sense that, people from Northern Nigeria acknowledges themselves as Arewa nation, those in the Western Nigeria sees themselves as Oduduwa  nation which they truly are, but would be raged when the indegines of Eastern Nigeria addresses themselves as Biafrans. However, other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria would rather prefer the Easterners to go by the politically motivated name South-East and South-South or even Niger Delta, which undoubtedly is an alien name considering what their name were before the evil amalgamation that forced three divergently opposed cultures to inhabit together and that can never be seen as justice neither are Biafrans ready to accept it, after all, Biafra is an ancient nation far older than Britain that colonised and amalgamated Nigeria inorganically by force. Therefore, until the Arewa youths that made the infamous Kaduna declaration are arrested and prosecuted, the recent call for the revoke and re-arrest of Nnamdi Kanu by the Attorney General of the federation who circumvented the constitution and the call for the arrest of those terrorist Arewa youths, is dead on arrival, hence he should not go against his oath of office with his prejudicial statements against Nnamdi Kanu not minding that the case is still in court.


Before I cap it up, it could be recalled that after the 1914 amalgamation of Nigeria, it was the Arewa North that sowed the seed of secession in Nigeria. This can be seen in a situation when they found out that the amalgamation was no longer on their favour hence, they led a protest and started shouting " araba araba" which simply means "secession". They were brought back and cajoled into the fraudulent One Nigeria with the British colonialists gifting Nigerian seat of power to them, thereby making other ethnic nationalities to be living at their mercy till date. Fast forward the happenings to this day and you will be marvelled with the fact that nothing has changed and that Nigeria has remained stagnant in the hands of the cabalistic Northernised Nigerian state.

However, it will interest me to ask those of you who are always of the opinion that God created the expired 1914 amalgamated Nigeria the following questions:

1. If it were God that created Nigeria, what then was amalgamated in 1914 and what brought about the name Nigeria after the amalgamation?

2. If truly God created Nigeria, who then did the Nigerian founding- fathers fought ( not gun battle) to gain independence in 1960?

3. If Nigeria is indivisible, why are there Arewa in the North with their private security apparatus like Hisbah sharia police and an operational sharia law in almost all Northern states instead of the generally accepted common law, while Oduduwa in the West has OPC as their security apparatus?

4. If Nigeria is actually one as the North is claiming, why did the Arewa youths gave their fellow citizens resident in the North quit notice to vacate their land while saying that the North belongs to them?

5. What would Nigeria be called when it operates a sectional and quoter system of government?

The earlier we all accept the reality that there is nothing that is holding Nigeria together other than the fact that it is the North against other regions in Nigeria the better for all that inhabits the Lugardian cage that is sitting on gun powder which will soon explode or allow any ethnic nationality that have rejected the oppressive state to be on their own and establish their own sovereign nation in peace.

However, Family Writers press is using this medium to join other groups in condemning the call of the Nigerian government through the office of Attorney General of the Nigerian federation for the revoking and rearrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra. We are hereby advising the Nigerian government, who has dimmed it unfit to arrest Fulani herdsmen that is a confirmed Northern terrorists and their treasonous Arewa youths that issued genocidal quit notice to Biafrans to henceforth, discontinue the illegitimate call for the rearrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu because they lack the moral right to make such call. They should as a matter of peace stop the open threat and secret abduction of innocent  Biafrans. The Nigerian government should stop her fragrant disobedience to legitimate court rulings ordering the unconditional release of citizen Benjamin Madubugwu, Bright Chimezie Ishinwa, David Nwawuisi and other Biafrans unlawfully incarcerated without trial.

The Nigerian government should as a matter of urgency, apply a democratic means of dialogue to engage IPOB through her leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and in furtherance map out modalities for a well internationally recognised and monitored referendum for Biafrans to decide their fate in the unholy union called Nigeria now or risk the impending doom that will befall Nigeria if they continue with their undemocratic way of tackling issues in a democratic dispensation

Finally, in continuation of IPOB democratic way of self determination through civil disobedience which will ostensibly lead to referendum vote, Family Writers Press is urging all Biafrans in Anambra state to comply to the election boycott directive given by IPOB leadership as a medium of showing total rejection of the oppressive Nigerian state. In other words, there will be election boycott in Anambra state come 18th November, 2017, (where Biafrand are meant to sit at home) and subsequently the entirety of Biafraland until date for referendum is given by the Nigerian government.
