To Those Individuals Enviously Accusing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Of Abandoning IPOB Activists In Detention

To Those Individuals Enviously Accusing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu  Of Abandoning IPOB Activists In Detention

* Nnamdi Obi And Other IPOB Detainees Are Not For Sale

I recently read through a misleading, ungrounded write-up from a shallow-minded, Facebook notice-me rat, putting up accusations and claiming Biafran Elephant. He claimed that activists of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), yet in detention, have been abandoned by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. With him are such other individuals who have never fearlessly visited these detainees in either police or prison custody. These are persons who hid themselves when IPOB was tagged a terrorist organization by the Nigerian government and could not boldly and publicly declare themselves as Biafrans for fear of being arrested.

Activist Nnamdi Obi
IPOB is globally acclaimed as the largest Freedom Fighting Movement and her actions administratively, do not function in the kitchen. One does not just awake from slumber to spew trash and wants IPOB leadership to toe decisions from uncorroborated, illicit gossips far from what erudite minds may consider an argument. IPOB responds to objective arguments but mischievously accusing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu of having abandoned his detained activists in Nigeria prisons is to say the least, most disgustingly insulting and entirely bereft of the knowledge of the rule of law.

IPOB has various functional departments and the Legal Team an arm, is responsible of legally combating for the rescue and freedom of all detained activists. Akin to other departments, the legal team has strict operational ethics/principles cum course of action that must be religiously adhered to.

It is noteworthy to state here that the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not and does not in any way represent the Nigeria security agency which arrested the activists. He is not the prosecuting counsel, presiding judge or even the prison officials who have them in custody. Those in detention quite unlike the recently released Orji Uzor Kalu, are not convicted and cannot be because they did not commit any offense against known law(s). The officials detaining them are just greedy Igbo prosecutors that want IPOB to approach them with bribes which we cannot get involved with. This organization does not give bribe because once such is started here in Nigeria, be very sure, it will never end. Each time they arrest our people, they will want us to pay them. This is their game which must be properly understood.

* The Rule In IPOB Legal Team

We do not bribe Nigeria security agents for the release of any IPOB activist. Before venturing into any matter, announcement is usually being made   for clarity and understanding. If by any way you do not want to abide by the terms of the IPOB legal team, then you may freely have your own way but at all times, there has  been total compliance with given orders by the IPOB leadership to the legal arm.

The adherence to these orders form the reason why no IPOB detained activist has been convicted whatsoever, for terrorism. We completely regain freedom despite delays in dispensing justice through incessant/indiscriminate adjournments.

* Nnamdi Obi

It is out of ignorance or function of weak minds that people will publicly insinuate that Nnamdi Obi is being abandoned by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. This position is entirely moronic. When really has the IPOB leader become the Magistrate, Mrs. Linda Ugobaja that remanded Nnamdi Obi in Umuahia prisons and Nwobilor Esq., both of whom are Igbos that are prosecuting the innocent Biafran activist?

The bail application for Nnamdi Obi has well been filed in Abia State High Court, Umuahia, since the Magistrate Court presided over by Mrs. Linda Ugobaja flatly denied him bail for lack of jurisdiction and endorsed his remand warrant. The ruling on Nnamdi Obi's case in Abia State High Court was earlier scheduled for Monday 20th April 2020, before covid-19 pandemic lockdown which affected court sittings not just only in Nigeria but globally.

The mischief makers and their sponsored baby saboteurs, since the court ruling was not done and the presiding judge failed to make appearance on the fixed date of Monday 20th April 2020, they should then tell who granted the defendant, the bribe bail for one hundred and fifty thousand Naira (N150,000)?

Is IPOB now being advised to get Mazi Nnamdi Obi freed by meeting with same prosecutor behind the scene, that tagged him a terrorist for just putting on Biafra regalia? No, IPOB legal team will not toe such a path.

* Those Accusing Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Of Abandonment Are Clearly Behind The Frequent Adjournments/Illegal Detention Of IPOB Activists

If you therefore advise that IPOB gives N150,000 as bribe to Nnamdi Obi's grossly unlearned prosecutor when he can legally withdraw his false charges in the court of law, you are then invariably the reason why the hunger-stricken police agents, arrest IPOB activists. Your assertions are tantamount to disguised extortion because you are actually asking the Nigeria government to carry out invasion of every IPOB meeting venue, arrest members and send it's prosecutors to place demand for N100,000, N150,000, N400,000 and whatever charge they deem fit. Are you telling the Nigerian government to continue arresting us, so we can keep giving them N150,000 for each family member kidnapped?

If an unkept, gravely unprofessional Nigeria forceman lacks money, his best bait is to detain our mothers on Biafra regalia and then ask you to contact Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for the provision of N150,000 for each or risk being detained for years?

IPOB membership is over sixty (60) million globally and by calculation based on monetary gains in Nigeria courts at N150,000 per individual, the total sum is what the prosecutors would be raking in at our expense.

* Why Was Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Incarcerated For Two Years And Orji Uzor Kalu, Just For Only Five Months?

To the fault finders and their admirers, they have to fully comprehend the fact that IPOB activists are usually being treated inhumanly by their oppressors in a totally different manner. It was via belligerent and confrontational legal combats, death of innocent Biafrans amongst several consistent protests, that propelled Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's freedom after two years. Does it then mean that the IPOB leader was abandoned for him to have been in incarceration for two good years before his bail was being granted by Justice Adeniyi Ademola in Abuja based Federal High Court, nonetheless? An IPOB activist is totally a different person from any Nigeria politician, and that is why we are being treated wholly differently.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu never declared Orji Uzor Kalu a saint before placing a demand for his release from prison. As a matter of fact, he shamed Orji Uzor Kalu for being a Fulani stooge in Biafraland through his Radio Biafra live broadcasts. The reason behind the IPOB leader's campaign against the detention of Olisa Metuh and Orji Uzor Kalu, is for Fulani nepotistic government to exhibit fairness in it's judgement. It is indefensibly against natural injustice for one to declare his/her thief free while holding others condemned for same offence.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has frequently written to the United States of America, United kingdom, United Nations, International community and had equally broadcasted on air live, for the release of IPOB detained activists. He has permanently accentuated on the injustice meted against Biafrans and Nnamdi Obi is not and cannot be an exemption.
