IPOB declares Buhari ‘terrorist president’

IPOB declares Buhari ‘terrorist president’
Buhari with Army chief celebrates Boko Haram flag

By Chuks Collins

The embattled pro-Biafra group Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB),Thursday declared the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari a terrorist government.

In a statement by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, described the Nigerian legal system, especially as configured by Buhari and his cacophony of family cabinet as a jungle.


While decrying the continuing detention of her members across the country by the administration, the statement saw it as laughable situation where persons expressing their God-given human rights and political/administrative persuasions were simply dumped in prisons without any charges or trial in a regime that called itself a “democratic government. Or is it really demonic?

“What we are saying is that the Buhari government should set free our members in various detention facilities across Nigeria if it is not ready to prosecute the court matters against them”.

Describing Buhari’s administration was yet to convince the world in an open court of law which part of IPOB’s right to self determination as presently exercised was in breach of any known law of the land to qualify the group as a terrorist organization.

That “It is the Buhari regime that is behaving like terrorists by failing to appear and doing everything they can to frustrate and delay ongoing cases so they won’t be cross examined under oath in an open court.”

Mr Powerful noted that the alleged missing case file of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu at the Appeal Court and the lackadaisical attitude of the federal government towards court matters in the country involving IPOB was enough indication that the government was unwilling to pursue the matters. He described the scenario as bizarre, unconscionable and ridiculous official misconduct never heard of or seen anywhere even in primitive ages.

The statement read in part, “With ongoing moves by Nigerian Government to frustrate, through frivolous applications and adjournments, all pending cases involving IPOB in various courts within and outside Nigeria, we the Indigenous People of Biafra think that the time has come for this Buhari regime to release those held illegally in detention centres and prisons all across the country.

“It is unheard of in the history of the world that a government is seen to be running from their own courts and afraid of legal processes they themselves instituted against a group they labeled a terrorist organisation.

“Normally a terrorist group or unlawful society would not want to undergo public legal scrutiny but in the case of IPOB we have offered and have taken this Buhari regime to court to prove that we are a peaceful organisation pursuing our inalienable right to self-determination.”

IPOB said the Buhari government had consistently failed to produce a single witness to testify on its behalf or corroborate its wild accusations against IPOB.

According to the statement, more than two years of bringing up the trumped up charges against its leader, Kanu, alongside Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi and Chidiebere Onwudiwe, and other Biafra agitators on charges of treasonable felony and conspiracy to commit treasonable felony, the Attorney General of the Federation and the DSS had not come up with any evidence or material witness to substantiate their allegations that IPOB activities were in any way were illegal.”

BUHARI'S ANTI-CORRUPTION CHAMPION AWARD, A MOCKERY TO THE AFRICAN UNION

BUHARI'S ANTI-CORRUPTION CHAMPION AWARD, A MOCKERY TO THE AFRICAN UNION

By Obi Blaise
For Family Writers Press

 Uncountable number of reactions, comments and questions have been trailing the anti-corruption champion award given to Muhammadu Buhari, the despotic President of Nigeria by the African Union (AU). Such questions are: (1) Does the African Union really understand the meaning of the word "corruption" before bestowing such an honor on a man in the mould of Muhammadu Buhari? (2) Are the African leaders aware this misnomer really briefed about the developments in Nigeria and the antecedents of Buhari run government?

Many Nigerians have often times described his administration as clueless, directionless, vampiric and exceptionally lawless in the history of Nigeria. Can it be said then that the head of a government that treasures in, relentlessly manufactures and spreads corruption, poverty, unemployment, terrorism, cabalism, disillusionment, hopelessness, death, inflicts pains and anguish, is corruption-free? Close to three years in government, it is glaringly clear that Buhari is only exhibiting hypocrisy in his anti-corruption mantra crusade. He is grossly shrouded in corruption and needs to face detailed investigations.

WHAT REALLY IS CORRUPTION?

This is indisputably an act of impairing integrity, virtue or moral principles. It is a state of being debased. It is a loss of purity or uprightness. Corruption is depravity, wickedness, bribery and acts of conceptualising or inventing evil in whatever shade/form. Muhammadu Buhari cannot be said to be above board in the light of the definitions proffered on what actually corruption means. He is himself corruption personified. A man that paraded questionable graduation certificate and swore to false affidavit cannot be said to be an anti-corruption crusader.

The African Union leaders ought to have known that even Aisha Buhari, - President Muhammadu Buhari's wife had criticized him for not moving Nigeria on the right part and vowed never to support her husband again in any political campaign. This man who was very erroneously awarded African Anti-corruption Champion cannot earn public trust nor recover his battered reputation due to his unwillingness or weakness to put his house in order. His demonstration of lack of political temerity to bring the tainted members of his cabinet to book but rather uses his office to persecute his perceived political enemies and those of different ethno-religious backgrounds.

The so-called award champion on the very day of his inauguration as a President, proved that he is not a nationalist leader when he said "I belong to nobody", cannot be exonerated from corruption as present events in the country clearly defines him as a Fulani tribalist, an Islamic fundamentalist and an ardent killer of those he hates. Since the history of Nigeria, the gruesome killings of unarmed innocent civilians (Biafrans) exercising their inalienable rights to justice, peace and freedom, is a very definitive display of dictatorship and vampirism. Such killings were brazenly carried out by Buhari's brethren known as Boko Haram terrorists, Fulani herdsmen and others in military and para-military uniforms. All these mayhem were perpetrated under the nose of a  President who was recently being awarded as an anti-corruption champion by the leaders of Africa. What a shame!

It is necessary to remind the African Union at this juncture, that this crowned champion accepted an appointment as chairman of Nigeria's Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) under the most corrupt and tyrannical military regime of late General Sani Abacha. Up till date, no explanation has been advanced on how N25billion got missing or stolen from the coffers of the Petroleum Trust Fund which Buhari was in charge of.

Buhari who once defined corruption as the greatest form of human rights violation, is now an ardent violator of the same human rights he deceptively gave definition to. He has no regards or respect for the country's Constitution nor the rule of law. To sane and rational Nigerians, the anti-corruption awardee  is unarguably, the "father of corruption" in the country. He claims to be fighting corruption while therein lies a retinue of corruption allegations levied against his cabinet members which he has tenaciously been protecting.

The African Union as a matter of fact and integrity, ought to have asked questions before according Buhari such a shameful honor. He does not deserve such a recognition as the man under discourse is not just a fraud but a disgrace to democratic values.

RESUMPTION OF FULANI HERDSMEN ATTACK IN BIAFRALAND

RESUMPTION OF FULANI HERDSMEN ATTACK IN BIAFRALAND

By Kingsley John Chibuzor
For Family Writers Press

It was really challenging and dangerous getting back to Enugu from Lokoja after a very strenuous business trip occasioned by dilapidated Federal road linking Kogi and Enugu States. At about 9:30pm while approaching the boundary between the two states, we encountered a middle aged man screaming and desperately flagging down our vehicle as if in need of an assistance. Because of the danger associated with this road due to the activities of armed robbers and kidnappers, our driver objected to stopping for the man but for our pacification.

"Thank God you stopped to render this assistance to me", the man exclaimed. "I have been in this nearby forest for the past two weeks without food or water", the man further explained, in a very weak voice. I and others were kidnapped by heavily armed Fulani militias on our way back from Abuja. Some of us were shot dead at the spot. Few of us were abducted and taken to the forest. They demanded a ransom of N20 million (twenty million Naira) from each and every one of us, refusal of which would attract summary execution (instant death). As fate may have it, I was then left out of this hook by our captors to go and get N10 million based on agreement they reached with my family, as my my elder brother who is a medical doctor was still in their custody. They threatened to kill him if after the expiration of 24 hours, the N10 million ransom was not paid. This is just one out of many such incidents that happen around us.

The numerous inhuman and murderous acts being perpetrated by these sponsored  Fulani herdsmen (terrorists) notwithstanding, Nigerian government has never deemed it fit to condemn their attacks within the South-East region. Some weeks back, about 70 persons who were mowed down by these Fulani vampires were massively buried in Benue State. The whole world has now come to terms with the high level of barbarism being unleashed upon the Biafran population in Nigeria by these Islamic invaders cum terrorists called Fulani herdsmen. The Nigerian government under Muhammadu Buhari has refused to tag them a terrorist organization but instead, Nigerians have been urged to handle them with kid gloves.

This is the hypocrisy of the Buhari led federal government. While tagging the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the world acclaimed most peaceful, well organized, highly enlightened and disciplined Indigenous mass movement in the entire global community as a terrorist organization,  he has blatantly refused to christen same on the 4th most deadliest terrorist organization according to the world terrorism index report. Not less than 20 - 30 Boko Haram terrorists who the government claimed have repented, regained their freedom in Nigeria while thousands of Biafrans are still being incarcerated in various dungeons, others are either killed, maimed or regrettably untraceable.

We hereby call on the International community to wade into the decimation plots of IPOB members by the agents of the Nigerian government. All those abducted and kept in different prison custodies, must have to be released without further delay. Peacefully agitating for self-determination is never a crime in law and so Biafrans are exceptionally doing the needful in that respect. We need justice and freedom.

Kanu’s missing file: Court must deliver its judgment, IPOB insists

Kanu’s missing file: Court must deliver its judgment, IPOB insists

By Vincent Ujumadu AWKA

THE Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, demanded yesterday that the Court of Appeal must deliver its judgment on its embattled leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, whether his case file was missing or not.

IPOB head of Directorate of Service, Mazi Chika Edoziem, in a statement recalled that the Court of Appeal panel heard Kanu;s matter in March 2017, insisting that any attempt to delay the judgment on the ground of a missing file amounted to perversion of justice and criminal conspiracy. According to IPOB, never in the history of Nigeria had it been reported that a case file of such magnitude went missing on the day judgment was meant to be delivered. The statement read: “This very matter,  Appeal Case No CA/A/78A/C/2018,  which is a legal action against the decision of Justice John Tsoho to reverse himself on an earlier ruling he made rejecting masked witnesses when he was the presiding judge before the matter was transferred to Justice Binta Nyako, is over a year old contrary to the law.

“  February 13, 2018  was the day Appeal Court of Nigeria agreed, after much protestation from IPOB lawyers and in direct contravention of a key constitutional provision, to deliver its long overdue judgment in the matter of  Nnamdi Kanu vs Justice John Tsoho.

“On getting to court, instead of the usual adjournment that characterizes IPOB cases in Nigeria and ECOWAS courts, the panel of judges announced, to the dismay of the court and others assembled, that the file was not before them.

“Not minding that this was a high profile matter already outside the constitutionally guaranteed three months maximum for delivery of judgment, the lead judge announced that the matter could not proceed, without the case file.

“The questions we are asking are; what happened to the decision of the initial panel that heard the case on the 8th March 2017 considering that Appeal Court of Nigeria is a supposedly   competent court of records? Where is the copy of their judgment, because judges must have a copy of their judgment in their own personal files?

“Assuming and for the purposes of benefit of doubt that Kanu’s file is missing, how about the judgment written by the panel of judges that heard the matter on the 8th of March 2017, which they were meant to deliver on the 8th of June 2017 at the very latest as guaranteed by law?

“Does it mean Nigerian courts do not keep records of their judgments or are we to assume that Appeal Court judges are ignorant of the Nigerian Constitution to the extent that they are unaware that the statutory limit on delivery of all Appeal Court judgments is 90 days?

“Why wasn’t judgment in this matter delivered within the constitutionally guaranteed 90 days, which is 8 June 2017? What this case is telling the world is that Nigerian Appeal Court judges do not obey the constitution of Nigeria they are supposed to interpret and uphold.

“We view this ugly development as a desperate conspiratorial move to deny long overdue justice for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB by Nigerian judicial officers on the orders of the Nigerian presidency.

“Our humble request to the President of the Nigerian Judicial Council, NJC, President of the Appeal Court of Nigeria and Attorney General of the Federation, AGF is to recall the original panel of judges that heard the matter on the 8th of March 2017 to deliver their judgment as required by the Nigerian Constitution.”

MIDDLE BELT'S SECESSION LETTER TO THE UNITED NATIONS AND NEXT LINE OF ACTION

MIDDLE BELT'S SECESSION LETTER TO THE UNITED NATIONS AND NEXT LINE OF ACTION


Written by Mazi Onyebuchi Eze
For Family Writers Press

It is becoming glaringly clear that the Nigerian Federation has gradually and steadily nosedived into unavoidable dissolution and dismemberment with the Tiv ethnic nationality (an indigenous people group), unequivocally placing their secession letter on the desk of the global body - the United Nations. The Tivs are a predominant tribe in the Middle Belt region of Nigeria that has in recent times, suffered shades of gruesome massacres from the Nigerian government-backed armed Islamists known as the Fulani herdsmen. The demand states their desire for the group to be carved out from Nigeria and be accorded recognition as a territory of the Takuruku Republic.

The Analysis Department of the Family Writers Press International,  one of the Frontline leading Media outlets of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, wishes to at this juncture, proffer some vital advice to the people of the Middle Belt region on some of the best approaches that could be usefully adopted for the promotion of their quest for freedom. That if clinically adhered to, will in no small measure help them stem the mad drive of annihilation presently being driven by the Fulani state-sponsored vampires (terrorists) masquerading as herdsmen.

Family Writers Press International, has the primary mandate of "Giving Voice to the Voiceless" not only in Biafraland, but to the Tivs and of course, the world at large. The founder of this rugged professional media outfit, Mazi Emeka Gift, was prompted by the consuming passion to float an organization that will purely be hinged on freedom fighting for all oppressed peoples of the world, using the instrumentality of high profile and exceptionally uncompromisingmedia practitioners, who curry journalistic ethics to duly inform and educate the general public, in the most understandable manner.

It is in keeping with the vision of our motto which is "GIVING VOICE TO THE VOICELESS", that this media organization has wittingly decided to wade in to help promote the political emancipation drive of the Indigenous People of the Middle Belt region of Nigeria with particular reference to the Tivs. Family Writers Press International is a freedom fighting media outfit saddled with the sole responsibility of using the pen profession to help amplify the voices of the oppressed for global prompt attention and response. There are therefore listed underneath, some very pertinent ingredients the Tivs (Middle Belt people) and possibly every other enslaved people groups, could very diligently employ to facilitate their liberation from despots and vampires, viz:

(1) RIGOROUS MEDIA CAMPAIGN EFFORTS

The people of the Middle Belt region of Nigeria must have to create their own social media platforms, print media and electronic media outlets that will effectively enhance their agitations for self-determination. This will broaden and drive their quest globally as any dependence on the jaundiced government/Yoruba controlled media houses will help kill their drive through lies and evil propaganda. The United States of America, Russia, Britain, Germany, France and other global players must have to be acquainted with the sufferings and cries of the people. Family Writers Press International wants the oppressed Middle Belters to really understand that if they must succeed in getting the attention of the world regarding their self determination efforts, just like the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, under the supreme leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu did and are yet doing, they must have their own media, the cost notwithstanding. They must train their own Indigenous Journalists (Seasoned writers, Editors and Publishers) from the ranks of freedom-hungry volunteer media warriors whose guiding principles will revolve round truth, dedication and courage. Freedom fighting abhors lousiness and fair-weather approaches. They must jettison all traces of junks being churned out by the oppressive government media which concoct and disseminate lies and damaging propaganda, aimed at undermining the voices agitating for their genuine liberation. The Biafran people experienced scores of the Nigerian government sponsored media  junkism and falsehood lined to permanently put them down over the years. But Biafrans doggedly rose to the challenge with superior and undefeatable media intellectualism, dedication to duty, strict/uncompromising ethics of the profession, might for might, campaign for campaign which saw the array of government heavily funded and teleguided media, crumble in defeat. The Middle Belt people should know that the Nigerian media has shamelessly mortgaged it's cherished professional services for complicity with the government's oppressive, obnoxious and frivolous interests. The ever cherished ethics of untainted journalism has been grossly rubbished. The media remains the only veritable channel in which the vital milepost of getting the voice of the people is audibly heard by the global community.

The indomitable media squad known as the Family Writers Press was a media initiative, ably midwifed by Biafrans for the Biafra restoration struggle due to the fact that the Nigerian media outlets bluntly refused to give adequate and required reportage of Biafra activities and if they did, the events were either teleguided or compromised. But today, the resilient Family Writers Press International and Radio Biafra London amongst other Biafra sister media outlets, have  strongly forced the Nigerian media and allied foreign media organisations to irresistibly accord the Biafra restoration efforts, due reportage, absent of which scored their customers' patronage exceptionally low.
This is ostensibly the place of media in freedom fighting.

(2) FIELD AGITATORS

The Middle Belters should also know that political freedom is not given anywhere in the world, but is rather taken. If the Tivs have really written to the United Nations about their desire to secede from Nigeria, then it is expedient that everybody condition himself/herself under a unified, strong umbrella. The fear of being arrested, killed, maimed or even incarcerated for getting involved in organised peaceful civil disobedience (protests), should be discarded. An incorruptible freedom is fought for and achieved on the platform of indefatigability and courageousness like that of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the able leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Such must have to be conceptualised and brought to existence as a secessionist movement of the Tivs (Middlebelters) in Nigeria or better still, the idea of secession should be forgotten. Determined fearless youths, mothers and men should be involved in this quest like what obtains in the IPOB.

Family Writers Press International is using this medium to adequately inform the Middle Belt people that writing to the United Nations is good but  will amount to ridicule of grievously oppressed people, by the global community if just lodging a letter with the United Nations all it has. A world body that is fast becoming a toothless bulldog which has compromisingly sold out to the whims and caprices of the Islamic world. She lacks the capacity and the capability of enforcing her own laws and conventions on erring member nations that were even signatories to  her chapters. The quest for freedom therefore, for the people of the Middle Belt will be a mirage if they become complacent with mere written document as purportedly forwarded to the United Nations. They must have a unified (central) command structure that will organise series of protests to let the world come to terms with their plights of many generations under the oppressive government of Nigeria through the menace of Fulani herdsmen (terrorists). Their desire to establish their own independent nation known as Takuruku Republic should be distinctively spelt out for clarity. Major cities and towns within the Middle Belt region like Jos, Makurdi, Lafia, Jalingo, Saminaka, Lokoja, Minna, Ilorin et cetera, should be highly sensitised and involved, thereby getting the world extricated from the deception and lies theories of the Nigerian government.

(3) TOTAL REJECTION OF INDUCEMENTS AND COMPROMISE

Family Writers Press wants to also let the Middle Belters to know that hungry and greedy people do not fight for freedom and succeed. The towering successes recorded so far by Biafrans in their quest for freedom and restoration hinge on their unbroken record of resoluteness even in the face of varying degrees of starvation, deprivation and victimization as orchestrated against them by the Nigerian government. Be warned that as you have initiated this move, the Nigerian government will sooner than later, initiate deceptive visits to your mundane-hungry stricken and selfish  leaders of thought amongst you, with barrages of inducements to mortgage the overriding interests of the masses. The government will also come with beguiled political appointments as pacifying packages. But the onus then lies on the oppressed majority of the region to decide on how best to handle their future and that of their upcoming generations. Freedom fighting is exclusively championed by the younger generations who have the future and not the likes of General Yakubu Gowon, General Theophilus Y. Danjuma, Prof. Jerry Gana, Chief Paul Unongo, Mr. Abubakar Tsav, Senator David Mark, Senator George Akume, Governor Samuel Ortom, Governor Darius Ishaku, amongst others. These individuals are either awaiting death due to their ages or unwilling political elites who are ready to sacrifice the overwhelming interests of their people for crass egocentric cum delusional One-Nigeria interests.

Such class of individuals like Chief John Nnia Nwodo, Governor David Umahi, Governor Willie Obiano, Governor Nyesom Wike, Dr. Orji Kalu, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu and many others, exist also in Biafraland who go to lengths to sabotage the interests of their own people for monetary and other frivolous gains. But Biafrans who are doggedly given to the liberation struggle, have effective working mechanisms through which this crop of moral destitutes are not just sidelined but contained.

The agitation for self-determination by the people of the Middle Belt region, will disastrously end in shame if they fail to wholesomely articulate their agenda for the anticipated results. The fight for freedom can effectively and efficiently be championed by the likes of Mr. John Danfulani (Southern Kaduna), Mr. Terwase Agwaza - a.k.a Ghana (Tivland) for  instance, with a team of other dependable supporters from within the region if really they will want to retain their incorruptibility in the face of persecutions and mouthwatering inducements from the powers that be. It should be sounded here therefore, that freedom fighting is not a child's play but rather, a condensed movement of matured and selfless minds.

With the above guiding principles as outlined by the Analysis Department of the Family Writers Press International, it becomes evidently clear that the agitation for self-determination as recently being registered by the oppressed Indigenous People Group of the Middle Belt region of Nigeria, will only be successful if they carefully avoid   the pitfalls that will permanently keep them bound under the Fulani enslavement. The Nigerian government in revenge, will definitely hit them hard for daring to demand for secession. Oh yes, the despots and the vampires must surely come visiting.

But are the willing and vibrant Middle Belt youths who are disposed to taking into their hands, their destinies for the total emancipation of their people and that of their upcoming generations stimulated enough for this engagement? Now is the time.

Say No To Fears and Enslavement Inducements!

Brace Up For The Fight And Play The Men For Your Total Freedom!!

BIAFRA: TREASONABLE FELONY CHARGES AND ENDLESS ADJOURNMENTS

TREASONABLE FELONY CHARGES AND ENDLESS ADJOURNMENTS

Written by Blessed Orji
For Family Writers Press

In his inalienable desire to set his people free from generic oppression and enslavement, and the blessed land of the rising sun - BIAFRA fully restored, the highly enlightened, dogged and courageous leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu very wittingly, braced the perils of a tortuous journey from his comfort and convenience in Europe to Nigeria. He was abducted and illegitimately incarcerated by the Nigerian Security Operatives. He endured humiliation and various degrees of deprivation in the most inhuman dungeons of the country and was eventually taken to court on trumped up charges of treasonable felony amongst others. The entire drama of persecution in the hands of government agents termed trials, metamorphosed into judicial mockery in a supposed democracy.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had on occasions, been declared and set free by Abuja-based Federal Courts but was denied bail by the manipulative hands of tyrant Buhari and his cabals operating behind the scene. The plights of the Biafran leader in prison custody cannot therefore sufficiently be explained nor can the ugly experiences he went through since 2016 when he was granted bail on health grounds be ascertained.

What was expected to be a civilized judicial process, turned out to be a prejudiced persecution through the instrumentality of Buhari government of selected judges and military. The Nigerian Federal Courts which are ostensibly being presided over by Hausa-Fulani Sharia teleguided judges, failed to advance justifiable evidences to butress their purported charges against the innocent in the persons of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Benjamin Mmaduagwu, David Nwawuisi and Chidiebere Onwudiwe. The same story is said of thousands of Biafrans variously abducted from their homes, worship/market places, family meetings and protests venues, who are also being held in custody. Biafran journalists like Egwuatu Chukwuka and Prince Daniel who were detailed to official duties were not spared the extra-judicial incarcerations. These two who were equally arrested while carrying out their professional functions on November 2017 are still being held incommunicado till date by security agents.

Reminiscent of the Nigerian Judiciary is the history of unnecessary, immoral and consistent adjournments of court proceedings. It was this  unprofessional developments steadily being carried out against the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), that gave a leeway to the Nigerian Army to unleash their terror and lawlessness on the people through their invasion of the home of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on the 14th of September 2017, killing scores of promising Biafran youths and wantonly destroying the Royal Palace of his father at Afaraukwu-Ibeku, Umuahia, Abia State, South-East, Nigeria.

The incessant postponement of court cases involving Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB, is nothing short of sinister plots of the Nigerian government to decimate Biafrans by drafting it's military to Biafraland with the resultant effect of gruesomely massacring, abducting and maiming Biafra men, women and youths. The Nigerian Judiciary can no longer restrain the crime of inhumanity perpetrated against the Biafran people. The Buhari led tyrannical federal government is ruthlessly and unrelentlessly dictating who to imprison or made a public spectacle.

The institutionalisation of inequality policy as clearly being pursued in every facet by the Nigerian state contrary to the dictates the Constitution, has strongly fired up Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB to seek redress outside the shores of the country and the African continent. The much reverenced sub-regional court called Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) court, has shamelessly mortgaged it's professional integrity for crass interests or overtures from the Nigerian government through it's exhibition of disappointing level of compromises in adjudicating the matter as tabled before it by Biafrans. The down trodden in the Nigerian society are being denied justice daily due to corruption and government control. Justice system in the country has grossly been compromised.

To Biafrans, the seemingly endless maneuverings of judicial processes and the corrupt, teleguided judges coupled with Nigerian government's vampiric antecedents, can no longer be tolerated hence the wisdom of the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, under the supreme command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, to look elsewhere, where justice and fair play could expeditiously be obtained. Justice delayed they say, is justice denied. It has become pertinent to seek for justice in the civilized world where humanity is treated with respect according to the rule of law and natural justice.

BIAFRA : THE PYTHON DANCE III AND OUR SHORTSIGHTEDNESS TO IT'S IMPENDING DANGER

THE PYTHON DANCE III AND OUR SHORTSIGHTEDNESS TO IT'S IMPENDING DANGER

By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi
For Family Writers Press

At the time when Benue State is burning, with the Fulani people killing Tiv indigenes in their own land, the Nigerian military under the authority of a Fulani President Muhammadu Buhari and a Fulani Chief of Army Staff Lt. General Tukur Buratai have declared they will be sending military personnel to South- South and South- East for Operation Crocodile Smile III and Operation Python Dance III, respectively.

The South South and South East that are so peaceful, that are not at war with any group needs soldiers, but not Benue state that has recorded series of Fulanis' attacks and the accompanying deaths of innocent civilians. It took the killing of seven (7) Fulani men for the federal government to detail truck loads of the Nigerian soldiers to Benue state. When the Fulani invaded Benue state killing more than 70 people including women and children, the federal government took no action to stop the marauding killer squad, but the same government called it internal communal clashes between farmers and cow herders and as such does not require military intervention. Today the military has been unleashed on Benue state to kill indigenes and to aid the Fulani murderers.

Recall that the Nigerian government during operation Python Dance II in September (2017) last year, unleashed the Nigerian military that indiscriminately killed dozens of Biafran youths in Aba and Umuahia. They also invaded Royal Palace of HRH, Igwe Israel Okwu Kanu, who incidentally is the father of the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, killing more than 28 promising Biafran youths and a pet dog. Since after that atrocious crime, followed by the illicit and unlawful proscription of the activities of IPOB, South- East and South- South have remained peaceful in the face of persecution. No reprisals and no killing of anybody. All the efforts made by the Nigerian military to provoke the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) into picking up arms in retaliation failed woefully, yet, they are preparing to send in another set of military operations to South- East and South- South, Imagine!

It pains me that upon all these injustices staring us all in the face, some misguided elements still shout "One Nigeria". So disgusting really.

Even some hypocritical lots, living abroad in another man's land, shamelessly enjoying good infrastructure, good and affordable healthcare, good government policies aimed at alleviating poverty and assures good and healthy living, they enjoy quality judicial system where the hope of a common man is certainly protected and human rights of every individual is respected without violation, are also applauding the government on such beastly act.  How many times have you heard that a team of military personnel, beat a man to death in America simply because he is wearing a military camouflage? Which nation unleashes the Police, Military, Immigration and Custom on a particular region and order them to be extorting money and other valuables from people that traveled miles to clear their goods only to be harassed by those that are supposed to be protecting them, in their own backyard. You cleared your goods in Lagos, and Custom officials that are littered everywhere will be extorting money from you and in most cases will hold you for hours for the same goods that were cleared by their own officials at the port. You will see them everywhere on the road from Lagos to South-East region and the worst is that same way the custom officials litter on the roads is same way their counterparts in Military, Police and even Roadsafty corps are littered, doing same thing.  They do this to make sure people are forced out of South- South and South- East to other states and more especially abroad for greener pastures. What a useless country Nigeria is!

All these abnormalities does not perturb you. You supported this government because you needed to be loved by the Fulanis. You know that Fulani favours only those sycophantic Igbos who through their words and write ups denigrate their own people. You love "one Nigeria" because you are gaining materially today. Moreover, corruption puts a lot of money in your hands, that is why you always keep quiet as the Nigerian military kill innocent unarmed civilians.

Now they are coming back again to finish what they left in South- East and South- South. Just get ready for the worst. It is no longer time to blame Mazi Nnamdi Kanu again because your political mafias masquerading as your representatives, who you are vigorously campaigning for and supporting have been stamped and shredded by their slave masters up North, hence they have all become toothless Bulldogs. They are so shameless that they easily become weak and vulnerable when it has to do with their Northern counterparts. Hope we have all seen how workable the fraudulent enclave called Nigeria is? Is Nnamdi Kanu no more the reason Nigeria is not working? Is he not the reason the 'good' Nigerian military is now gearing up to come back to a peaceful South- East and South- South to kill people once again in disguised operations they will be unleashing? Is this not another opportunity to win the love of the caliphate by joining the Orji Uzo Kalus, Joe Igbokwes and Lauretta Onochies of this world in denigrating and maligning your own people?. Castigating your own people earns you a job and political contract in Nigeria's Fulani controlled government led by the chief Fulani terrorists, Muhammadu Buhari.  Those standing tall and speaking for a stop to injustice against their own people gets nothing other than death and unending court trials. But posterity will judge us all.

Biafra will remember those who fought for her, who defended her dignity but will not also forget betrayers and saboteurs.

This Python Dance III will once again bring tears in the eyes of many? Who exactly are they coming for? They have taken Nnamdi Kanu away and the South-East political elites kept mute as though they are of different world. Even to question the rationale behind the third coming of this Operation Python Dance since the region is not at war with anybody, not even with the Fulani foot-soldiers of the Nigerian government, they have not deem it fit. Who and what actually is the operation aiming at? At least people should be told what the Nigerian military is coming to do in Biafraland, because they are supposed to be at the Nigerian boarders defending her against external aggressors and even in the North East combating Boko Haram or better still be in Benue state protecting the lives and property of hapless indigenes who have abandoned their homes for fear of the Fulani herdsmen killers and are now seeking refuge in Internally Displaced People's camps (IDPs). They are coming again to the old Eastern region to drink more blood in the festival of blood they called Operations Python Dance III and Crocodile Smile III. But this time around, my instinct is telling me they are coming to fish out writers and intellectuals who have stood for Biafra and are waging  media war against the Nigerian media lies and writes in support of the Biafra struggle. I sincerely encourage all those in Biafra media to remain strong, courageous, determined and most importantly watchful and careful. Those that are killing us should also be taught a lesson to know that educated Biafrans are in their millions and are ever ready to write in defense for Biafra.

It is on this note that I'm putting the Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, American President Donald J. Trump, and all the people of good conscience around the globe on notice, over the purported Operation Python Dance III and Operation Crocodile Smile III that would soon be launched in the South-East and South- South respectively, which will invariably enable the Nigerian military to use their recently acquired foreign weapons to kill the people they took an oath to protect, those whose through their taxes they are being paid.

Stand now and speak out against this impending danger.

May God keep us all alive.
