IPOB: The Underrated Freedom Movement

 IPOB: The Underrated Freedom Movement 

When this movement of the Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB), ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu started, it was easy for several mischievous persons to write against Biafra. Many political recruits of the Nigeria government in the East, comprising mostly of youths, rose up to write many demeaning articles and posts against the agitation. Some even blamed the agitators for dying in the hands of Nigeria military. Some even mocked Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who narrowly escaped for his life when battalions of Nigeria soldiers came to kill him.

IPOB peaceful agitators were murdered by soldiers, and some of these heartless critiques said that these youths were dying out of foolishness, that they quite knew that  President Buhari is the president, yet they came out to protest. So, they concluded that these youths killed themselves. By this way, they exonerated the murderous Nigeria soldiers and blamed the victims. It was just like blaming a rape victim and exonerating the brutal rapist. 

I remember one of them writing to maliciously portray that IPOB members who have no guns came out to confront soldiers with guns. But protest is never confrontation. They always have ways of making it look like the protesters are not peaceful, as to advance the political tenure of their pay masters.

"Biafra can only be achieved through war or joining politics" is what one of the sophists recruited by Ọhaneze will always say. That was their ploy to force IPOB into metamorphosing into a political party.

Today, those they called miscreants didn't fall for that, but are still waxing stronger.

For them, IPOB members are miscreants. They say they are made up of Keke and Okada riders. They said IPOB members are not in anyway educated. They see themselves only as the  educated ones. But how can uneducated people start such a great movement?

The underrating of IPOB members by the Igbo acclaimed educated class supporting the government played an important role in the growth of IPOB. They will always say that IPOB or Nnamdi Kanu does not speak for ndị Igbo. They make it look like Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a nobody. They look for every opportunity to tell you how IPOB is the reason things are not working properly in the East. While their governors are in power looting, they demand good governance from IPOB. 

IPOB is the greatest freedom fighting movement in the world. IPOB has educated people and professionals in their rank. Yet these so called intellectuals failed to see those in IPOB as educated people. The abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has again proven that those of them that claimed to be educated are not even educated. They are actually blind men.

IPOB has proven that they indeed speak for the people. Because of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, ndị Igbo have consistently stayed at home. Nothing of such has ever happened before in the Igbos' history. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has become the greatest Igbo man alive and will soon transform into the greatest Igbo man dead or alive. 

But, the politicians are not sleeping. They want to fight back. They have used military and police and failed. They have abducted, imprisoned, killed and yet failed. So, they chose to infiltrate IPOB as to cause problems. These infiltrators are the autopiloters. They were mainly former supporters of politicians not long ago. Their duty is to terro-rize our people in the name of IPOB. They want the people to start seeing IPOB as those destroying people's properties. They want to cause the people to start murmuring against their own freedom. They are working for the dub-ious politicians.

As real IPOB member, you must educate our people and let them understand that autopiloters are working for Niigeria government to harm them. They are the ones the politicians sponsored to be terrorising the people every Monday in the name of enforcing an already canceled sit at home.

It is therefore your duty as IPOB member to defend the struggle. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said he will not disappoint us, but we will disappoint him. He knew that this day will come.

Will you allow autopiloters cause harm to this very struggle that have taken the lives of millions of Biafra people?
