IPOB Afikpo North Family Holds Her First General Meeting For 2021

 IPOB Afikpo North Family Holds Her First General Meeting For 2021



The formidable family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Afikpo North Local Government Area, Ebonyi State, had her first general meeting for the year on Saturday 16th January 2021. The meeting started at exactly 2:00pm with an opening prayer offered by Mazi Moses O. All participants officially had themselves introduced. The Ebonyi South Senatorial Cooordinator, Reverend Oko Elijah (special guest of honour) and his Executives were warmly welcomed.

Mazi Egwu, the Local Government Coordinator, officially presented the meeting agenda, which majored essentially on his acceptance by the   members of the Local Government Area as the newly appointed Coordinator as well as the way forward for family in the new year amongst others.


While emphasizing on the need to walk in total adherence to IPOB Code of Conduct, the Cooordinator, Mazi Egwu expressed some displeasures with the attitude of some members who have remained insubordinate to his leadership since his assumption of duty. He emphasized that the removal of his predecessor was occasioned by his failure of duly representating this noble family unspotted as expected of an IPOB leader.


Mazi Christopher, a Zonal Coordinator, in his response, frowned at how some individuals are seemingly bent on ensuring that they cause disunity in the family, pleading with all and sundry to come to the very understanding that there is no competition in leadership hence, Mazi Omeriagu Egwu must be fully given the needed support. He stressed that the LGA Coordinator deserves the chance to prove himself worthy of the position appointed into.


Mrs. Eleje showed  discontent with the new leadership for failing to carry out an audit to ensure proper financial documentation since the executive took over from the former. Mazi Okoro (a member) in his reaction, explained that the new Coordinator just assumed office with the conveying of this meeting and so, should be allowed some time to properly settle down before undertaking such an exercise.

However, Mrs Eleje vowed her loyalty to the command and control structure of the IPOB leadership.


The special guest of honour, Reverend Oko, asserted that after listening to all submissions, he remained baffled that some members at this very critical time, were yet to understand that democracy forms no part of the protocols employed in freedom fighting, especially at the leadership level. He stated clearly that every leader in the Biafra struggle should wholly serve with the awareness that he could be replaced at any instance. He cautioned against acts of insubordination and indiscipline.

Rev. Oko further clarified that the appointment of the new Local Government Coordinator was not an imposition as being peddled by some individuals but by his resoluteness and steadfastness. He pointedly stated that should the new coordinator deviate from the good conduct that led to his appointment, he would equally be removed without any delay.


In conclusion, Mazi Egwu thanked everyone for the vote of confidence passed on him. He acknowledged that to whom much is given, much is also expected, promising to be true to his appointment. He went on to pray that Chukwu-Abiama (God-Almighty) continually strengthen all.

The meeting eventually came to a close with a parting prayer said by Mazi Igwe Johnson at 5:00pm.

If We Continue To Wait For Buhari Government, Herdsmen Will Kill All Of US—Prof Akintoye

 If We Continue To Wait For Buhari Government, Herdsmen Will Kill All Of US—Prof Akintoye



The Worldwide Leader of the Yoruba global movement, Ilana Omo Oodua, Prof Banji Akintoye, has accused the Presidency of supporting criminality by faulting Ondo Governor Rotimi Akeredolu's order asking herdsmen to vacate forest reserves in the state.

In an interview with The PUNCH on Wednesday, the historian asked people of the Yoruba race and Nigerians to prepare to defend themselves against herdsmen.

He accused Fulani herdsmen of engaging in full-scale criminality since President Muhammadu Buhari became Nigeria's president. 

The Yoruba elder wondered why the Federal Government had refused to prosecute many Fulani herdsmen engaging in criminal activities. 

He said, "The Presidency is now initiating a very dangerous doctrine of governance in Nigeria. The presidency is now saying that the state's authority no longer includes the security of the people of the state. 

"That is not only bad but dangerous to the existence of Nigeria. It is an assessment of the quality of governance in Nigeria by the rest of the world.

"All Nigerians who are being assaulted, raped, and killed by the Fulani must defend themselves; not only Yorubas or those living in Ondo. If we continue to wait for the Federal Government, these herdsmen will kill all of us. We must rise to defend ourselves.

"The Nigerian government has shown again that it is working for the Fulani. I don't think anybody should be afraid to say that because it is the truth. The Fulani has been committing crimes on a massive scale since 2015 in Nigeria. 

"The government has never owned up that they are committing the crime. They have been going around kidnapping, killing people, and destroying farms, properties, and villages on a persistent scale and those things are crimes under the laws of Nigeria. In some parts of the country, it looks as if the army is colluding with them (herdsmen)."

The Ilana Omo Oodua leader commended Akeredolu, urging Yoruba to support him. 

"Akeredolu should be commended for his decision, for his courage and show of knowledge of the land. We support what he is doing. We are waiting for what government would come and do in Ondo State," he added.

Terrorism: Herdsmen Menace And the Courage of Governor Akeredolu In defense of Ondo People

 Terrorism: Herdsmen Menace And the Courage of Governor Akeredolu In defense of Ondo People 



Great and courageous leaders sometimes make hard decisions and sacrifices for the over all well being of their citizens. This type of leaders is what is grievously lacking in the Eastern part of Nigeria. There exists leaders elsewhere that stake their lives for their people but not so amongst ours that pride themselves as our leaders. They are those that beckon on our enemies to come into our land to kill, rape, victimize and pillage our people/land because of their selfish interests. 


Such crops of leaders are roundly represented in Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State. There is no gainsaying the fact how dangerous the description the Fulani killer herdsmen represent, even before the global community. These Fulanis are cherished vampires within the Nigerian state but Governor Dave Umahi would rather prefer working with them against his own people based on his crass political interest. He has turned Ebonyi State into a killing theatre because of his love with the activities of the Fulani terrorists in the State.


It is encouraging therefore, to note the action of the Executive Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu who bravely issued an order to these rampaging, murderous elements from the sahel, to vacate the State's forest reserves within seven (7) days grace period. In his words, the Governor said: "These unfortunate incidents are traceable to the activities of some bad elements masquerading as herdsmen. These felons have turned our forest reserves into hideouts for keeping victims of kidnapping, negotiating for ransom and carrying out other criminal activities".


"As the Chief Law and Security Officer of the State, it is my constitutional obligation to do everything lawful to protect the lives and properties of all residents of the State. In the light of the foregoing, the following orders are hereby issued:


1) All Forest Reserves in the State are to be vacated within the next seven (7) days with effect from Monday 18th January, 2021.


2) Night-grazing is banned with immediate effect because most farm destructions take place at night.


3) Movement of cattle within cities and highways is prohibited.


4) Under-age grazing of cattle is outlawed.


"Our resolution to guarantee safety of lives and properties within the State shall remain utmost as security agencies have been directed to enforce the ban. In it's usual magnanimity, our administration will give a grace period of seven (7) days for those who wish to carry on with their cattle-rearing with appropriate authorities".


Above are the words of a true and dependable leader who has the interest of his own people at heart. It is the duty of a leader who prioritizes the  safety and well being of his people to pointedly undertake to do this as constitutionally obligated. This is a signature of a courageous man and not the bunch of "women governors on trousers" that we have as leaders in the South-East region.

2023: We’ll not support Nigerian President of Igbo extraction — IPOB

 2023: We’ll not support Nigerian President of Igbo extraction — IPOB



The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, yesterday gave reason for its refusal to support Nigerian President of Igbo extraction, saying that all the people being prepared for the position are stooges that will be used against the interest of Ndigbo, Biafrans and the Biafra agitating groups. 


IPOB also alleged that the people at the forefront of the agitation were people who openly worked against late Dr Alex Ekwueme, at Jos PDP convention for the candidature of the President of Nigeria under PDP in 1999, the brightest chance Ndigbo had for the position.


IPOB in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful alleged that what such people did to Late Dr Ekwueme was similarly, done by their likes to Mr Peter Obi, in 2019 when he contested with Alhaji Abubarka Atiku as his running mate, alleging that they conspired and did not support or campaign for Mr Obi despite being in the same political party – PDP, with him.


IPOB, therefore, said that the same people shouting President of Igbo extraction today will turn round to sabotaged their own people tomorrow in favour of a non-Igbo because of selfish interest especially with dangling of a little carrot to their face.


IPOB, therefore, said that the same people shouting President of Igbo extraction today will turn round to sabotaged their own people tomorrow in favour of a non-Igbo because of selfish interest especially with dangling of a little carrot to their face.


IPOB statement read, “We cannot support any person that will kill us, that will mean the end of Biafra emancipation as we know.


“It is still fresh in our minds what transpired at Jos PDP convention when the Late Dr Alex Ekwueme contested for the candidature of the President of Nigeria under PDP in 1999.


“Then the likes of Jim Nwobodo, Orji Uzo Kalu and virtually every other Igbo delegate at that convention voted against him. These Igbo men sabotaged Igbo presidency then, what has changed since 1999 that will make them come out now to shamefully clamour for the same Igbo presidency they publicly rejected in 1999?


“Similarly, when Mr Peter Obi, in 2019 was contesting with Alhaji Abubarka Atiku as his running mate, Governor Dave Umahi and his co-travellers in conspiratory business did not support or campaign for him despite being in the same political party-PDP.


“We are surprised that these people shouting President of Igbo extraction today but sabotaged their own people yesterday think we have forgotten, they also think others will support them when it is their turn.


“Besides, if these myopic and self-centred fellows think producing the President of Nigeria will solve the problem of Ndigbo, when Goodluck Jonathan, an Ijaw man from South-South was Nigeria’s President for six years, what did he do for the East in general and Ijaw people in particular?


“The same Northern oligarchy that did not allow him to operate freely will still not allow any stooge they may eventually appoint from Igboland to succeed. So, it makes no sense clamouring for what won’t proffer any solution to our problems.


“The few major roads built in South-East and South-South were done not by Igbo man, yet none of these traitors masquerading as Igbo leaders today has been able to compel their slave masters to rehabilitate them. Most of these self-acclaimed Igbo and Old Eastern region leaders are caliphate bred traitors and we cannot trust them.”

Why IPOB Won’t Recognise Obiozor as Ohanaeze President – IPOB

 Why IPOB Won’t Recognise Obiozor as Ohanaeze President – IPOB



IPOB PRESS RELEASE 

15/01/2021


We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to state without any ambiguity, that we cannot work together with the newly appointed President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief George Obiozor.  This is because he was imposed on the Igbo socio-cultural body by the Fulani cabal running the failed state of Nigeria. The Chief of Staff to the President, Alhaji Ibrahim Gambari and Miyetti Allah were instrumental to the emergence of Obiozor as Ohaneze National President according to our findings. 


IPOB closely monitored the jamboree in the name of election that produced Obiozor as the new Ohanaeze helmsman,  critically analysed the antecedents of those behind his emergence and came to the conclusion that we cannot in all honesty work with him because we are not ideologically compatible. Obiozor may not be entirely evil but those behind him are unrepentant enemies of Biafra. Naturally, he can only do the bidding of his sponsors, thus sacrificing Igbo Biafra interest at the altar of few self-centered political desperados.


 We have not forgotten that before the shambolic election of Ohanaeze president, sometime last year, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Associations of Nigeria (MACBAN) wrote a compelling letter to Aso Rock seeking Gambari's support to install one of their stooges in Ohaneze Ndigbo as its leader. We raised the alarm then but nobody listened to us, so IPOB cannot work with a man we know will be remote-controlled by a Fulani terrorist group in the shape of Miyetti Allah and by extension the Federal Government of Nigeria.


We also wish to clarify that we cannot work with the current bunch of Igbo Efulefus clamouring for a Nigerian President of Igbo extraction in 2023 because we know their real motives. Non of the traitors on parade have Igbo Biafra interest at heart. They are only after their personal gains going by their antecedents. The same bunch of reprobates that superintended the massacre of their own people through countless Operation Python Dance are now asking survivors of those massacres to support them. How utterly ridiculous these people are. If they can use their positions as governors to massacre their own people in order to please their caliphate handlers; as president of Nigeria, they would probably kill every Biafran agitator as Nyesom Wike tried to do in Obigbo. Supporting any of these murderers will mean the end of Biafra emancipation as we know it or worse.


It's still fresh on our minds what transpired at Jos PDP convention when the Late Dr Alex Ekwueme contested for the candidature of the President of Nigeria under PDP in 1999. Then the likes of Jim Nwobodo, Orji Uzo Kalu and virtually every other Igbo delegate at that convention voted against him. These Igbo men sabotaged Igbo presidency then, what has changed since 1999 that will make them come out now to shamefully clamour for the same Igbo presidency they publicly rejected in 1999?

Similarly, when Mr Peter Obi, in 2019 was contesting with Alhaji Abubarka Atiku as his running mate, Gov. Dave Umahi and his co Igbo conspirators did not support or campaign for him despite being in the same political party - PDP.  We are supprised that these people shouting  President of Igbo extraction today but sabotaged their own people yesterday think others will support them.

Besides, if these myopic and self-centered fellows think producing the President of Nigeria will solve the problem of Ndigbo, when Goodluck Jonathan, an Ijaw man from South South was Nigeria's President for six years, what did he do for the East in general and Ijaw people in particular? The same Northern oligarchy that did not allow him to operate freely will still not allow any stooge they may eventually appoint from Igboland  to succeed. So, it makes no sense clamouring for what won't profer any solution to our problems.

The few major roads built in South East and South South were done by the former President Alhaji Shehu Shagari a Fulani man from Sokoto State yet none of these traitors masquerading as Igbo Leaders today has been able to compel their slavemasters to rehabilitate them. Most of these self-acclaimed Igbo and  Old Eastern region leaders are caliphate bred traitors and we cannot trust them. They may deceive their fellow it's our turn to rule brigade, but not those of us who are discerning enough to understand their childish pranks.

Our concern is Biafra and nothing more. Any saboteur talking about Nigeria President of Igbo extraction is on his own.

Umahi and his Planned Fulani Sponsored Regional Security Outfit Should not dare us- IPOB Warns

Umahi and his Fulani Sponsored Regional Security Outfit Should not dare us- IPOB Warns

 

We the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to warn South East Governors particularly Gov Dave Umahi to jettison the proposed new  security outfit they intend to launch based on the advice of the Fulani-controlled Federal Government of Nigeria. We know that their intention is to counter  the formidable Eastern Security Network, ESN, protecting and defending Biafrans against terrorists and invaders responsible for the senseless attacks, rapings and wanton killings of our mothers, wives and sisters in our farmlands and forests.

We warn these clueless governors in our region not to heed the mischievous advice and attempt by Miyetti Allah and Sokoto caliphate intended to compromise the security of Biafrans. Any Miyetti Allah vigilantee group under any nomenclature formed by Dave Umahi and his fellow Efulefu governors as well as Ohaneze will be resisted by the people of Old Eastern region.

We, therefore,  advise every Biafran father and mother to caution their children against joining  Umahi's vigilante group as such an outfit is already the enemy of the people. Their agenda is sinister and anti- Biafra.

Remember that the real masterminds of the plot - the Fulani cabal running the failed contraption called Nigeria - having been emboldened by their success in installing one of their stooges as Ohaneze President, are now set  to control Biafraland but ESN and IPOB have remained their only nightmare. 

No wonder Fulani can buy  Efulefu Eastern leaders so cheaply. They know that the likes of Umahi are blinded by inordinate political ambitions. But to their disappointment, our people are now alive to their responsibilities and won't allow Miyetti Allah to control the security architecture of the East as they are now attempting to take over Amotekun in the West. We are happy to aver that the grand conspiracy by our oppressors to take over the South with the help of compromised leaders is dead on arrival!

We declare without equivocation, that any other group parading as South East and South South Security outfit will not be allowed to operate on Biafra soil. Our people have already launched their own defense line - ESN - as our self-acclaimed leaders were nowhere to be found when it counted most. Anyone who enlists in any treacherous security outfit sponsored  by Fulani stooges in our land to desteblize our territory, will regret such a decision.

IPOB sounded the warning long ago that Miyetti Allah was going to foist George Obizor as President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo but many didn't believe us. Today has that not happened? Now they have  moved to form security outfit for us because our governors and political leaders are blinded by their greed and selfish political ambitions but the move is dead on arrival!

Remember that the same Miyetti Allah demanded to join Amotekun vigilantee but Yoruba people, aware of their evil motive, bluntly turned down their request. It's very shameful that instead of supporting the people to strengthen ESN, South East Governors led by governor Dave Umahi are hobnobbing with Miyetti Allah to compromise the security of the East. It's only a fool that will hire his enemy to midwife the birth of his only son.

Our message is simply this: IPOB will not allow terrorists any breeding ground on Biafra forests and farmlands. The rapings, killings and  unprovoked attacks by these vampires must stop through out Biafra territory. Anyone against this irreversible resolve of the people to defend themselves against foreign occupation will be crushed! ESN has been launched with the mandate of securing BIAFRA land, and no force can disband this great movement until it's done with its mandate!

Ohaneze Ndigbo Election: Kanu Calls For The Intervention Of World Igbo Congress (WIC)

 Ohaneze Ndigbo Election: Kanu Calls For The Intervention Of World Igbo Congress (WIC)



The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB ), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has unapologetically condemned in strongest terms, via his Radio Biafra Broadcast of Sunday 10th January 2021, the concocted Ohaneze NdIgbo Presidential Election held recently. He called it a fraud and therefore, it's outcome remains totally unacceptable. The IPOB leader called on the World Igbo Congress (WIC),  to immediately intervene and possibly take over the Ohaneze NdIgbo leadership structure.

Igbo is an ethnic nation in the old Eastern region of Nigeria which is today more appropriately referred to as Biafra. We, by census, represent one of the three largest ethnic groups in the country. Ohaneze NdIgbo is an apex Igbo  socio-cultural group, going by the incontestable fact that the organization is supposed to represent all Igbo communities within and outside Nigeria. 

It should be recalled that Ohaneze NdIgbo socio-cultural group was established in 1976 following the unleashed genocide committed against Biafrans by the British sustained Nigeria from 1967 to 1970. The fundamental purpose of creating this group was very unambiguously spelt out by the then well-minded prominent Igbos that conceived it. Such personalities were the likes of Professor Ben Nwabueze, Kingsley Mbadiwe, Dr. Akanu Ibiam, Dr. Michael Okpara, among others.

The initiative to float such a socio-cultural group for the over all interest of the people, was very much welcomed considering the enormous displacement of the Igbos during the war and it's corresponding aftermath.

Let it be noted therefore that this group is not a political party. It's key objective on creation amongst others, was to foster unity among it's members (the Igbos), in order to adequately position them for an all inclusive represention within the political scenario of Nigeria. Otherwise put, Ohaneze NdIgbo and it's leadership are supposed to serve as the voice of the Igbo nation and clearly present whosoever the people overwhelmingly accept to be their representative for any political office in Nigeria. 

It was never meant to be  controlled or manipulated by the politicians. Unfortunately, following the persistent pursuit for total conquest by the Fulani oligarchy coupled with the twin craving of gluttony and fame mongery of the selfish/opportuned Igbo politicians, the original purpose of the founding fathers premised on uprightness and purposeful leadership, became disgustingly corrupted.

 Owing therefore to this Fulani Oligarchy's quest to further disregard and disunite the Igbo nation, a letter was addressed on the 26th of August 2020, to the immediate past President of Ohaneze NdIgbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, stating unequivocally that they (the Fulanis) were aware that  Nwodo's tenure in office was ending in five (5) months time and had accordingly, nominated Professor George Obiozor to succeed him. 

They stated in the letter that this nomination was in tandem the recommendation of the Fulani imposed administrator of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma. The Fulani socio-cultural association that addressed this letter turned out eventually, to be "Miyetti-Allah Kautal Hore", an umbrella body of Fulani killer herdsmen in Nigeria. What a mad impunity and nauseating enslavement!

People tried to oppose this nomination but still got the shock of their lives as the same Fulani nominee, Professor George Obiozor eventually got rigged into the office of Ohaneze NdIgbo President on Saturday 9th January 2021, with the complete approval of the grossly compromised South-Eastern Governors. It is in reaction to this disrespectful act against the sensibility of the Igbo nation that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu asked the world Igbo Congress (WIC), to courageously step forward and take over Ohaneze Ndigbo.


As the largest mass freedom movement on earth currently, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has vowed never to allow the Fulanis to dictate how our land is being governed again. Biafrans (Igbos) therefore join their voices with that of the IPOB leader, to persuasively prevail on the world Igbo Congress (WIC), into doing the needful by taking off Ohaneze NdIgbo leadership from the hands of these fulanised slave-servant politicians of Igbo extraction.
