IPOB: WHAT GAINS DOES THE NNIA NWODO LED OHANEZE NDIGBO GET FROM THE SUFFERING OF IGBO BIAFRANS?

IPOB: WHAT GAINS DOES THE NNIA NWODO LED OHANEZE NDIGBO GET FROM THE SUFFERING OF IGBO BIAFRANS?

Written by Mazi Onyebuchi Eze
For Family Writers Press

Chief John Nnia Nwodo led Ohaneze Ndigbo has wittingly chosen to pitch tent with the oppressors of Biafrans in the British contrapted Nigeria. Chief John Nnia Nwodo and his shameless team of saboteurs in the Ohaneze Ndigbo socio-cultural group as he clearly confessed, had strongly resolved to carry on with the perpetuation of treachery. His confession was made during the handshake across the Niger political gathering in Lagos. This article hinges on their blatant refusal to humbly accept the fence- mending/simple conditions which meticulously presented before them as prerequisite for peaceful dialogue by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). The callous and snubbish display of arrogance by the Ohaneze Ndigbo led by Chief John Nnia Nwodo in connivance with the Southeast governors as led by Governor Dave Umahi, did explicitly confirm their happiness in the suffering and persecution of Igbo Biafrans in the present dysfunctional Nigerian entity. By this disdain for the collective interest of the people by the so-called socio-cultural cum political leaders in Igboland, there is no longer any disputation of the fact that these crop of individuals remain the worst enemies and greatest tragedy of the Igbos in the world.

With the irrefutably established fact that the insensitive and obnoxious proscription of the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) within Biafraland as jointly orchestrated by Ohaneze Ndigbo and Southeast governors forum which they have very recently refused to de-proscribe, one is therefore compelled to pose the following questions, viz:

* What really does the Nnia Nwodo led Ohaneze Ndigbo socio-cultural group stand to gain from the suffering and impoverishment of the Igbos in Nigeria?

* Why does John Nnia Nwodo constitute himself as an arch-enemy of his presumed people even when the IPOB leadership created an opportunity for his repentance from various atrocious treatments he helped to invent and actualise against Biafrans.

* Does Nnia Nwodo fully understand the resultant consequences of his affinity with the oppressors of his people whose interests he claimed to be fighting for?

* If Chief John Nnia Nwodo and his team of blacklegs in Biafraland have powers to proscribe the peaceful and rightful activities of the IPOB as claimed, why then do they lack the same powers to extend the proscription to the terrific/vampiric activities of the Fulani killer herdsmen who relentlessly prowl around Igboland, killing the people and destroying their farms?

* If through the covert complicity of Ohaneze Ndigbo and Southeast governors the Operation Python Dance II was instigated resulting from IPOB's rejection of the last Anambra State election because of the calls for Biafra referendum, why then their indifference to the well-being and welfare of the hurting/bereaved families whose loved ones were gruesomely murdered by the Nigerian armed forces in Aba, Umuahia and Isiala-Ngwa in the month of September, 2017?
With the above yet-to-be answered questions, it is necessary to state here that the tears, groanings, teeth gnashings and the wailings of Igbo Biafrans within the Nigerian entity, serve as the greatest source of joy and satisfaction to these shameless and grossly demented crop of saboteurs/sadists. The season has dawned for the Igbos in Biafraland to pointedly designate Chief John Nnia Nwodo, his band of socio-cultural hooligans and the ravenous Southeast governors as the sworn enemies of the people. They mischievously proscribed the globally acclaimed peaceful activities of the IPOB and orchestrated the bloody Operation Python Dance II that claimed hundreds of lives of the innocent, harmless and armless promising young Igbo Biafrans. These evils they plotted and executed, to service the murderous interests of their Sokoto Caliphate slavemasters/Abuja cabals. They have chosen to remain subservient to these Nigerian vampiric oppressors via their adamant refusal to jointly de-proscribe what obviously turned out to be a mistaken and forced display of power under the pressure of their Islamic demigods. Without consultation, they have totally fallen into the trap as they woefully failed to understand that the set time has come for the proscription of the Ohaneze Ndigbo within Biafraland by the people. This group has seriously constituted itself as a threat to both the corporate existence and security of Igbo Biafrans.

Concluding at this juncture therefore, "what does the John Nnia Nwodo led Ohaneze Ndigbo realistically and profitably gain from the suffering and enslavement of the Igbos in this evil enclave called Nigeria"? The enlightened are seriously awaiting answer(s) to the above poser if these self-serving individuals could courageously proffer any.

FAMILY WRITERS PRESS MAGAZINE, VERITABLE TOOL FOR ACADEMIC RESEARCH IN BIAFRALAND

FAMILY WRITERS PRESS MAGAZINE, VERITABLE TOOL FOR ACADEMIC RESEARCH IN BIAFRALAND

Written by Mazi Onyebuchi Eze
For Family Writers Press

Sequel to the epochal convention and launching of the Maiden Edition of Family Writers Press Magazine, it is expedient that copies be sent to central libraries across cities and towns in Biafraland for the enhancement of qualitative academic research. This view was expressed by one of the Patrons of the Media outfit on Friday August 3rd, 2018. He maintained that this will undoubtedly engender intellectual development of the younger generation of Biafrans regarding their history as a people and other valuable information about Biafra. The Patron citing instances with some of the relevant articles in the Magazine in the course of it's launch, stressed the importance of academic researchers to make this Magazine a veritable companion  about Biafra, globally. He described the Magazine as exceptionally priceless, a compendium of knowledge, clearly featuring articles on news, history about Biafra, Africa and the world generally. This is what Biafran students at various institutions of learning must reach out for via their closest libraries.

Responding, one of the Family Writers Press staff and a lecturer with a notable institution in Biafraland, Mazi Peter Nonso Ikeh, picked three copies of the Magazine as he launched, promising that the Magazine content would form essential ingredients in his school's library, relevant for academic learning. The National Leader of the Family Writers Press, Mazi Somto Okonkwo inexhaustibly commended the Patron and Mazi Peter Nonso Ikeh for their encouraging desires to have the younger generation of Biafrans fully aquianted with Biafra history and the persistent evil devastations in the land, occasioned by British colonialism. The National Leader thereby directed that five copies of the Magazine be given to Mazi Peter Nonso Ikeh for select distribution to central libraries in Biafraland and probably beyond.

All Biafran and non-Biafran students are hereby encouraged to fully utilize the opportunity created by this new dawn of empowerment, by reaching out to the copies of this Maiden Magazine for their academic researches. All closest functional libraries within Biafraland particularly, are accessible destination points for this Magazine. It is richly at their disposal. The Magazine remains an indispensable collection of quality historical facts about Biafra, her origin, the British/Nigeria war of attrition carried out against Biafrans between 1967 to 1970, the ongoing Biafra restoration agitations as tenaciously being championed by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) globally, all encompassing stories about Biafra, Nigeria defunct federation, the African continent and of course the entire global community. Through the instrumentality of Family Writers Press Magazine, the crude era of strangulation of Biafra history from school curriculum is now a foregone occurrence as the emergence of this Magazine is not just timely but a laxative for deep ignorance on contemporary issues.

Moreover, all parents and instructors are encouraged to take hold of this greatest gift of knowledge and help their children/wards for life with copies of this unique package from the stable of Family Writers Press. With it's launch, it has become necessary for Biafran parents and guardians to comprehensively escort their children/wards out of stark ignorance placed on them through their enrollments and learnings in Nigerian schools for years. Biafran students in tertiary institutions and secondary schools should begin to take advantage of this opportunity and place demands for Family Writers Press Magazine in their various locations. The Magazine uniquely serves as definitive tool for research work on stories, poems, news and historical reflections on Biafra.

Library attendants within Biafraland should ensure that copies of this Magazine deposited in their libraries are properly secured for the reading/research visitors. Family Writers Press  sales/distribution officers can be accessed for personal or additional copies through our facebook page, @familywriters1 or @emekagift on twitter.

Family Writers Press Magazine, is a collection of well researched work no one should afford to miss!

BIAFRA: THE ONLY HOPE OF THE AFRICAN CONTINENT (PART 5)

BIAFRA: THE ONLY HOPE OF THE AFRICAN CONTINENT (PART 5)

THE EXCHANGE OF AFRICAN CULTURE FOR WESTERNISATION

Written by Ogeh Friday Igiri
For Family Writers Press

Culture in a layman's understanding, simply means a way of life. It is arts, customs and habits which characterise a particular society or nation. Every community, society or nation has a peculiar culture with attached values to the lives and existence of such people. Americans for instance have their own uniqueness in culture just like the Europeans, Asians and of course Africans.

But it is realistically disturbing to note that the peculiarity of the African culture has been bastardized, helplessly and shamelessly relegating the black race to the background. The advent of westernisation which came into the African continent with colonialism, became the prelude to the abysmal collapse of the once treasured culture of Africa. This regrettably, made Africans subservient to the colonial overlords whose culture must be ridiculed, discountenanced and replaced with Western ways of life.

Superficially, it does appear to the tainted mind that such a devastating swap stands to benefit the indigenous people of Africa but the truth remains that such an exchange has brought into the continent, some measures of collateral damages than good. Many short-sighted and grossly misinformed individuals hide under this anomaly to yet promote and support the evil trend. This must not be allowed no matter the coloration. There exists numerous acts which the progenitors of the African continent shied away from because their culture naturally abhors such. But since the culture of Africa was surreptitiously swapped with that of the whites, many are presumably comfortable committing heinous crimes due to the absence of African natural/cultural measures to checkmate and bring to the bearest minimum, the various nefarious activities within the African society.

The ancestors according to traditionalists are said to be angry with the rate at which the African culture was being relegated and replaced with reckless abandon, with the slavish embrace of alien cultures which have immensely contributed to the retrogressive turn of events in virtually all ramifications within the continent.

ALSO READ: THE ONLY HOPE FOR THE AFRICAN CONTINENT (PART 4)

The few who conscientiously practice the African culture are widely adjudged evil perpetrators that deserve banishment from their respective localities. This is premised on the belief that the younger generations were deceived to see such as institutionalised evil that must be jettisoned, not knowing that evil and culture are two parallel differences. Culture abhors all evils and inventors/peddlers/supporters of such in any given society.

The nation of Biafra which is irrefutably the hope and eyes of Africa, was seemingly subjugated and criminally expunged from the world map through orchestrated annihilation policies of the Nigerian government and it's allies over the years. After the horrendous genocidal onslaught  carried out against Biafrans between 1967 and 1970, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, emerged with the mandate of resolutely fighting for the freedom of Biafrans and Biafra, the only hope of the African continent.

All indigenous Africans, lovers of freedom globally, men/women of goodwill and conscience, must stand up to support the ongoing agitation as being courageously championed by the IPOB, for the unfettered restoration of the sovereign nation of Biafra which has been under the occupational government of contrapted Nigeria. This forced/false union of the Arewas, Oduduwas and Biafrans, has for many generations completely refused to work. Therefore, trying in this 21st century to maintain the status quo is absolutely an exercise in futility.

BIAFRA: THE ONLY HOPE FOR THE AFRICAN CONTINENT (PART 4)

THE AFRICAN CONQUEST

Written by Ogeh Friday Igiri
For Family Writers Press

The myriad of problems confronting Africa started when the continent got conquered in the hands of the whites dating back to decades of years ago. The continent suffered both spiritual and physical conquest through thievery, thereby gravely bastardising the once cherished African value system. The mentality of Africans were hacked into and erroneously reconfigured to believe the thrash that Africanism is not just fake and inconsequential but unlike their white counterparts, must accept the ridiculous second fiddle status.

Majority of the African people had hoped that the arrival of the whites on the scene, would have triggered off wholistic developmental benefits via their unreserved submission to the deceptive demands of the colonial overlords. This unfettered yieldedness resulted in the enslavement drive which Africans even up till date, are yet striving to extricate from. The advent of these colonialists in the continent, has to an extent added to the development of the people but the attendant disadvantages far outweigh whatever benefit recorded. The colonialists no doubt introduced Western kind of education and enhanced social developmental structures but surreptitiously deprived the people the right of independence.

Innumerable number of valuable mineral resources broadly deposited across the continent if advantageously and adequately maximised, can generate enormous revenue worth billions of US dollars. But colonial masters craftily harnessed these resources to service their egocentric interests without the consent of the indigenous owners of the land. Most of the Western countries employed the utilisation of these African resources to develop their economies at the detriment of the people.

At the advent of the British colonialists on the shores of West Africa particularly Nigeria, they carried out surveys of the entire Northern region predominantly occupied by the Hausa-Fulanis (Arewas). The Western part was occupied by the Oduduwas (Yorubas) while the Eastern flank was predominantly Biafrans. They however discovered that out of the very three divergent indigenous people groups, the most viable is located within Biafraland. To the colonialists, the only veritable means of actualising their objectives of covertly stealing from the people of Biafra, was the formation of a contraption for the three diverse ethnic nationalities of Arewa, Oduduwa and Biafra called Nigeria, thereby reducing in their own summation, the intimidating versatility and prowess of Biafrans.

ALSO READ: BIAFRA: THE ONLY HOPE FOR THE AFRICAN CONTINENT (PART 3)

The British amalgamated Nigeria ostensibly for their own advantage because they had the hindsight that Biafra would someday, emerge the redemptive and surviving tool for the entire continent of Africa. They connived with the Northern oligarchical cabals as willing/ready tools to enslave Biafrans amongst other Africans as we presently experience. African progenitors were criminally sold out into slavery in America, Europe, Asia, France etcetera, with many not being able to retrace their lineage back home. These men and women are today referred to as "Black Americans" particularly, whose contributions have enormously provoked insurmountable developments of their host countries instead of their countries of originality.

There has really never been records of crisis anywhere with traceable dearth of solutions and on this note, it suffices to say that the conquest of the African continent and all accompanying effects can be stemmed if Africans can determinedly and wholesomely locate the very genesis and causes of their predicaments. Great number of indigenous Africans are today clamoring for self-determination having fruitlessly strived to survive as a people within the contraptions created across the continent by the egoistic colonial masters. There exists quite a number of oppressed and marginalised indigenous nationalities ranging from East Africa, Central Africa, North Africa to West Africa. The case of the damning self-determination struggle by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is a very unique instance of a people seeking unfettered independence from a contrapted Nigeria.

There is absolutely no better alternative to this and the time is now wherein the intelligentsia should synergize and fight with genuine freedom fighters for the salvation of their people in particular and a pool of other African countries in general. Enough has been suffered and endured from the slavish drive of these Western demigods (colonialists). The earlier this is pursued, the better for Africa. Some of the oppressed and the agitators for self-determination could imminently resort to arms conflict with more lives lost and properties worth billions of dollars lost if necessary actions are not expedited.

When Biafrans were engaged with the clamor for freedom from the British sponsored marginalization and oppression in Nigeria in the year 1966, the then Nigerian Head of State, Retired General Yakubu Gowon in criminal alliance with Britain and others, waged decimation war against the Biafran people with over 3.5 million Biafrans including children, women and men were killed. The media reneged in it's professional responsibility of giving accurate reportage of events. There was no definitive request from the United Nations, African Union nor European Union from either Britain or Nigeria to give unbiased report about the genocidal visitation dastardly carried out against the people between 1967 to 1970. The spate of gruesome killings carried out under the directives of the Nigerian Islamic fundamentalist President of Muhammadu Buhari to the Nigerian Security Operatives against thousands of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the able leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who peacefully agitated for freedom, have not yet been comprehensively investigated and punished. So many were maimed while others were arrested  and extra-judicially incarcerated in different detention cells across Nigeria.

The salvation of Africa from the yoke and bondage of Western induced enslavement, starts from the comprehensive restoration of the sovereignty of Biafra because it is in Biafra, that Africa died. The restoration of Biafra most essentially, will trigger off the unprecedented freedom and restoration of the continent of Africa. Therefore, let Africans and all lovers of freedom globally, stand up shoulder to shoulder with Biafrans to nip in the board, this seeming endemic catastrophe bedevilling the African continent. There can never be a better time than now.

FULANI HERDSMEN KILLINGS: EATING OF COWMEAT PROHIBITED IN BIAFRALAND

FULANI HERDSMEN KILLINGS: EATING OF COWMEAT PROHIBITED IN BIAFRALAND

Written by Mazi Onyebuchi Eze
For Family Writers Press

The women wing of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Enugu State, Biafraland, has in their resolution recently, outrightly placed a ban on the consumption of cowmeat (beef) in families within Biafraland. According to the information obtained from the IPOB women in Enugu State, the embargo placed on the consumption of cowmeat is a necessitated and direct response to the spate of terroristic killing of Biafrans by the Fulani killer herdsmen. The women stressed that since the Fulanis in Nigeria in concert with those at the corridors of power, place premium value on cattle over and against human lives by incessantly killing Biafrans, it becomes expedient that corresponding response of outright ban on the consumption of cowmeat in the land be enforced.

The Enugu East Senatorial District IPOB Women Leader, Mrs. Veronica Nnamani while addressing Family Writers Press  members during their last annual convention in Enugu,  maintained that the IPOB Women in this part of Biafraland has totally banned all her members from visiting abattoirs for cowmeat related businesses. She stated that any woman seen contravening this order will be penalized accordingly. The IPOB Enugu women leader told the Family Writers Press  that she wanted to utilize the opportunity afforded her during the annual convention, to declare the importance of every Biafran in the restoration struggle. She enjoined all families in the State, to rally round the IPOB Enugu women in this step of cowmeat rejection as a potent weapon against cow businesses of the Fulanis and their cohabitation with the people. The action of the women is a targeted quit notice to the Fulani terrorists from the land as they completely lack the basic values and etiquette of natural co-existence.

Mrs. Veronica Nnamani further stressed that the reason why the IPOB women is spearheading this cowmeat rejection/prohibition campaign in Biafraland is premised on women's responsibility of cooking delicacies in their homes and elsewhere during festivities. She encouraged all the IPOB women owners of restaurant businesses like herself, to clinically boycott the  patronage of cowmeat sellers. She made it pointedly clear that chickens, goats and pigs amongst others, serve better alternatives than cowmeat whether for domestic/family consumption or restaurant businesses.

It is therefore necessary to bring to the notice of the general public, this latest and encouraging resolution of the IPOB Enugu State women wing. Biafrans all over Biafraland must take a queue from these women by totally rejecting cowmeat and their vendors/breeders. These Fulanis have over time, constituted disgusting nuisances and harm to Biafrans than whatever derivable advantage. It will be foolhardy in the light of this development for Biafrans to employ their hard earned resources in buying cowmeat which the Killer herdsmen terrorists who front as cow dealers, in turn utilize in procuring sophisticated weapons for the elimination of the people. The Fulanis with crazy impunity, invade farmlands with the cows under the complete protection of the Nigerian armed forces, as directed from the presidency.

There is absolutely no better time to take this action of cowmeat prohibition in the entire Biafra territory than now. This move just have to be fully supported and enforced to secure our future and that of the upcoming generation of Biafrans.

TENSION IN GHANA AS IGBO BUSINESSMEN FACE EVICTION AND THEIR GOODS, LOOTED

TENSION IN GHANA AS IGBO BUSINESSMEN FACE EVICTION AND THEIR GOODS, LOOTED

Narrated by Nwafor Akajiofo and Kizito Ikechukwu Obiora

Compiled by Ikeyahkadibia Onyeji
For Family Writers Press

Since the enactment of anti-foreigners retail business law by the Ghanaian government, the Igbo community resident in that country has been living in fear, embarrassment and deprivation.

Revelations gathered from eye witnesses, Family Writers Press can confirm that Igbos living in Ghana and particularly, those of them involved in spare parts business concerns are the prime targets. At Suame-Magazine district of Kumasi, Ghana, the enforcement of the law has extra-judicially been driven by overzealous Ghanaians, thereby massively creating xenophobic restiveness amongst the Igbo populace within the vicinity.

It is reported thus: "For two weeks now, they have forced us to stay indoors. We cannot go to our businesses. You cannot even dare go close to your shops. If we try it, the youths of Suame-Magazine promised to loot and burn down our shops. They want us to give them all our goods on credit and leave empty handed", Mr. Nwafor Akajiofo told Family Writers Press on telephone interview.

Success they say breeds jealousy and that is principally the root of this latest tension that has evolved between the Ghanaian businessmen and their Igbo Biafran counterparts. The chairman of Igbo traders union in Suame-Magazine, Mr. Kizito Ikechukwu Obiora confided in our correspondent that "the so-called retail law is just a subtle way of expressing their jealousness over our successes. The law is not affecting the Hausa-Fulani community in Alaba, Kumasi. It is not affecting Yoruba businessmen either in Abuabo, Kumasi. The only place the law is being enforced is in Suame-Magazine where there is a huge presence of Ndigbo who are into motor spare parts businesses".

Mr. Kizito maintained that "Ghanaians are not happy. We came here and showed them that one can become a millionaire by dealing on motor spare parts. They now have mastery of the business and want us to leave in other for them to eliminate all competition and dominate the market. That is the truth of the matter".

WHAT THEN IS THE POSITION OF THE GHANAIAN GOVERNMENT?

The Ghanaian Minister of Trade and Investment was recently in Abuja, Nigeria, and in his meeting with Nigerian Foreign Affairs Minister, Mr. Geoffrey Onyema, he pointed out that the said anti-retail law promulgated in his country, does not affect citizens from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). But the fact remains that Nigerians and particularly Igbo Biafrans are the prime targets. Igbo businesses appear realistically jeopardised in the whole drama. Mr. Kizito Ikechukwu Obiora and Mr. Nwafor Akajiofo respectively, expressed their displeasure at the way Ghanian Security Operatives are working in concert with the Suame youths. "Three days ago, the youths matched in their numbers to Joe Obi's shop who is a close relative to the Secretary to the Imo State Government. He traveled home in Nigeria and entrusted his shop into the hands of his workers. These Ghanaian youths beat up everyone they found there and brazenly looted the shop. And directly located just opposite Obi's shop, is another shop owned by a Lebanese businessman. It was carefully left untouched. We have businesses yet in this particular location owned by citizens of other African countries and nobody attacked them neither were their shops/goods touched, except that of the Igbo businessmen", they further lamented.

"Few years ago, when this type of thing happened, we put up a call to an official of the Nigerian Embassy. Despite promising to work with the Police here to provide protection, the Embassy official and the Nigerian Ambassador who is a Yorubaman, shamelessly and disappointedly made us to understand that we are on our own. We got their message loud and clear. For two weeks running, we cannot even move few kilometers near our shops. We on our own,  had to conduct midnight trips as adopted security measures to our shops to retrieve our few wares (goods) left unlooted. Both the Ghanaian youths and their elders in this location, insist that we should leave. They maintained that even if we reached agreement with the Ghanaian government, they will continue to harass, embarrass and set our shops ablaze until we consent. We need help my brother, we most certainly need help", Mr. Nwafor Akajiofo told Family Writers Press correspondent.
