The word "Proscription" appears commonly used these days but many people seem not to have fully grasped the actual meaning. Therefore, there is the need to give detailed explanation of what the word "Proscription", really stands for.

"Proscription" simply means the action of forbidding, banning, condemning or denouncing something. It is to condemn or forbid a thing as "harmful" or "unlawful". Readers should please underline the word "forbidden" for emphasis.

In Igboland (Biafra), right from the inception of the Igbo race, sabotage is one forbidden act that is gravely treated with disdain. Haven once said: "whenever a child turns around to disown his father, it is a call to look inwards. It has always been the other way round. It is the father that disowns the child but whenever the child turns around to disown his father, it shows that the father has derailed from his fatherly responsibilities". Taking a closer look into the establishment and operations of Ohaneze Ndigbo socio-cultural group, you will understand that this group of individuals never came together for the beneficial purposes of the Igbos in particular and her neighbors in general.

A question like why should Ohaneze Ndigbo be banned by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), would begin to prop up from some quarters. In the historical records of the entire global community, countries/nations, the only thing that has never been heard of or seen, is where acts of sabotage/saboteurs are being celebrated. It has been reportedly made known and witnessed where countries and people celebrate their independence, nations celebrate their heroes and heroines, victories after wars and conflicts etcetera. There is virtually no record anywhere that has celebrations of acts of SABOTAGE.

Ndigbo (Igbo race) as a nation has celebrated sabotage and mediocrity quite enough. Sabotage has cost us fortunes. It has cost us our lives and integrity as a people, resulting in gruesome killings, marginalization, frustration and regression. We as Biafrans, are totally fed up with the despicable acts of betrayal by Ohaneze Ndigbo. When Biafrans particularly of Igbo extraction were being massacred by the Nigerian armed forces, Ohaneze Ndigbo never raised eyebrows. When politicians elected into public offices to render quality services to the people fails to do the anticipated, like providing infrastructural developments: building of schools, roads, hospitals etcetera, these men hiding under the umbrella of sabotage called Ohaneze Ndigbo, never voiced out their displeasures as truly the representative of the people.

Not many people know that Ohaneze Ndigbo has been in existence since the year 1976, forty two (42) good successive years ago, with no definitive benefit enjoyed from them by the people. Not many know that members of Ohaneze Ndigbo socio-cultural group are exceptionally and selfishly wealthy and that is the reason behind the devilish scheming to eliminate each other as they scramble to pick crumbs dropping from the tables of their Hausa-Fulani slavemasters.

Asking why Ohaneze Ndigbo should be banned is essentially irrelevant. Rather, the right questions to ask are:

* What benefit(s) have Ohaneze Ndigbo activities attracted to Igbo Biafrans since its establishment?

* Since the inception of this socio-cultural group 42 years ago, what singular advantage has it brought to the Biafran neighborhood as the people's representative as claimed? Sometimes a group of individuals in this part of the world, constitute themselves with an appealing name with covert sinister motive of representing the people, just to accomplish and service their selfish interests. With this inherent crass egocentric drive, they hoodwink the gullible and manipulate what rightly belongs to the people to their advantage.

* Can anyone clearly specify who really appointed these Ohaneze Ndigbo members and on whose mandate/interest are they working? Was there any consent of the generality of Igbo Biafrans for their election?

The proscription of Ohaneze Ndigbo socio-cultural group by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide under the supreme command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is one of the greatest achievements of this global family aimed at emancipating Biafrans from the shackles of slavery and impoverishment. Any company, organization or institution that has existed for 42 successive years without the expected fruitfulness does not deserve continuity.
