THE OHANEZE NDI IGBO, THE GATHERING OF INTEGRITY CHALLENGED CHARLATANS OUT TO SABOTAGE THE QUEST FOR BIAFRA FREEDOM

THE OHANEZE NDI IGBO, THE GATHERING OF INTEGRITY CHALLENGED CHARLATANS OUT TO SABOTAGE THE QUEST FOR BIAFRA FREEDOM

By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi

I have been battling with myself after reading from Vanguard News paper, what the President-General of Apex Igbo Socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, said in Lagos last week during a program, concerning Biafra. Many Nigerian media outlets both electronic and print media gave the purported assertion  a very interesting and catchy headline which reads, " I Will Sabotage Any Agitation That Will Bring War To Igbo Land"

Seriously speaking, I have been trying so hard to keep calm on this unwarranted idiocy emanating from someone in the capacity of an educated man like Nnia Nwodo. However, I could no longer hold my peace and allow such unguarded utterances fester unchallenged. I have continued to ask myself, why is it that Igbos are continuously gifted with men who can not really stand up to defend their own people or stand with their own people? Are Igbos really cursed with hopeless leaders? I have so much respect for the President of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, that I joined hundreds of my Igbo people to wish him a wonderful birthday celebration, few days ago. But what did Nnia Nwodo do? He gave the Igbo nation his birthday gift by going to far away Lagos, another man's land to vow in the name of all the gods he is worshiping, on how he is going to sabotage Biafra struggle. He vowed on a foreign land to sabotage any attempt to have another war in Igbo land in the name of agitation for Biafra. Is Nnia Nwodo now telling the world that he is a proud saboteur? Has Nnia Nwodo finally made himself an enemy of his own people? He said so and I think his body language is in agreement.

It is so pathetic that Nwodo is not against the Nigerian government who brought war to Biafra in 1967 to 70. He is not against those that for no just cause rose up against his people, killing them in droves and littering their bodies in the street of Northern Nigeria which gave rise to the declaration of Biafra as a sovereign nation. Really? Levy war against Igbos in the name of Biafra agitation? What does Nwodo meant by that? He is simply saying that peacefully agitating for Biafra and demanding referendum is a call for war. In a simple parlance, Nwodo is saying that the people of Biafra have no legitimate right to peacefully agitate to restoring their stollen identity, thereby should remain in slavery, subterfuge and be facing near ethnic cleansing in the hands of those who think it is their gift to kill Biafrans and get away with it till God knows when. How did we really end up into having such people as leaders in Biafra land?
Chief John Nnia Nwodo


Are we actually following trends and reading in- between lines, hence analysing this properly? Are we putting down the implications of this statement? Unfortunately, by implication, Nwodo has agreed with Gowon that Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu caused the Nigeria / Biafra war because if today's peaceful agitators are calling for war with their demand for referendum, in Nnia Nwodo's understanding, then yesterday's players of Biafra caused the war. I am totally disappointed with Nwodo, a man that would have known that Nigeria means death to all indigenous people of the old Eastern region, Biafra.

 I can understand the frustration of Nnia Nwodo because he is fast loosing relevance both in Igbo land and in Nigeria. No one calls him again for interview and no more handshakes in Aso Rock, the fraudulent Nigerian seat of power, in Abuja. His popularity is diminishing with negative progression, so he needs to assure his caliphate slave masters that he is still doing their bidding so long as it has to do with standing against his people, then consider it a done deal. Undoubtedly, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the indefatigable leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) was abducted and the fame and popularity the red cap Chief, Nnia Nwodo has enjoyed in the past disappeared.

Let me quickly bring to the consciousness of Nnia Nwodo and humanity by asking Chief Nnia Nwodo' "is the war not already in Igbo land? What would you call the killing of Biafran youths in Onitsha, Aba and Umuahia, where innocent youths were humiliated and forced to swim and drink mud waters, even as many of them could not make it alive, while others were maimed for life with life threatening injuries? Now tell me why innocent civilians should go through such inhumane treatment in peace time, what would you call that? May be peaceful and silent war.

What war is worse than not having a single motorable federal road in Biafra land? Is it not war that Nigerian government built all the wonderful bridges in the Northern and Western Nigeria, only to be deceiving Igbos with the construction of the political second Niger Bridge. Nwodo should ask Igbos sending in goods from other countries into Nigeria if war is not ongoing. What of the war in political appointments? How can Nwodo not know that the war is already raging? The long aged war Nigeria has levied on the Biafran people is not only a war with guns and bullets, but political war, economic war, social infrastructural war, educational war where youths from Biafra are admitted in school with high marks and grades and to mention but a few.

How can Nwodo even claim to have fought during the Biafra war? I challenge Nwodo to tell us that his best friends  lost their lives in the war front with their names attached. Could Nwodo be classified as an innocent liar, hence disrespecting the people that fought and died fighting for Biafra. There is nobody that did not lost someone during that war, so do not sing that war song here to deceive and instill fear in the minds of the gullible. Biafran youths have died in various states, with hundreds still illicitly incarcerated and till date you have not honestly challenged or questioned the rationale behind such absurdity. Biafrans of this day are not cowards to accepting slavery as a way of life in a country that kills them with impunity. They are resolute and strong. Even without saying it, Biafrans know that they do not have a leader in all of you political mafias. They know that you all in collaboration with the governors brought in the Nigerian military in a murderous operation codenamed 'Python Dance II'. It was a hatched and ill-fated plot to end Biafra agitation that made you people to bring barbarians to cut short the lives of the Biafran youths without knowing that the inferno you see today as Biafra agitation can not be quenched with barrel of guns.

It is a mind blowing truth that the activities of IPOB threatens the Fulani Oligarchy and quakes all the saboteurs like Nnia Nwodo and South East governors. The caliphate is about losing their grip on Biafrans because IPOB has put them on check, knowing that any of their evil actions will generate outrage not just locally but also internationally.  All thanks to IPOB for challenging the fraudulent status quo.

Do not even think Biafrans are ignorance of the true nature of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo. You are not also ignorant of the fact that Biafrans are being slaughtered in the streets of Biafraland. Ohaneze Ndi Igbo is a gathering of hungry and  integrity challenged charlatans whose work is to slave for the HausaFulani, as to be receiving crumbs that falls from their table. Every government uses Ohaneze to further the marginalization of Igbo Biafrans in Nigeria. The government contacts them to make comments against Biafra so as to cause division amongst  us. The bottom line is that Ohaneze can not fight the same establishment that is benefiting them. Ohaneze is a beneficiary to the rottenness of the Nigeria establishment. They can not fight the finger that is feeding them. It has been like that. Nwodo wanted to be different, but until he realized he can not be benefitting from a system and still fight the same system, he renaged.

Not long ago Arewa youths gave every Igbo man in the North quit notice. Their elders came up and threw in their weight in support of their youths. That is even when Arewa youths were progressing in error. But in our own case, our own elders vowed openly to sabotage our own struggle albeit being legitimate and legal. That is even when Biafran youths are peacefully demanding a date for referendum.

They bring in restructuring tales whenever they are speaking as if they mean it. I can tell you for free that Ohaneze does not want Nigeria restructured, because a restructured Nigeria will make their position useless, irrelevant and the money they are paid each time they work against their own people will stop flowing in. If Ohaneze really want restructuring, should they not be wise enough to know that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's activities are sure "apiam" way to restructuring?

Every Biafran should know now, that just like the governors are not our leaders, Ohaneze too are bunch of rogues out to sabotage our struggle to freedom, hence must be jettisoned and avoided like communicable disease.

  1. These so called leaders are imposed on ndi igbo by the calliphate. What did sultan of Sokoto come to do in Nsukka the week he was elected. Now that we know who brings these evil men into power the problem is half solved.
