Breaking News: Slain Bodies Of IPOB Members Discovered In Obiawom Forest


IPOB PRESS RELEASE 

August 14, 2018

We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) commend our intelligence unit over the horrific discovery of yet more dead bodies of slain Biafrans in Obiawom village of Ogwe Autonomous Community in Asa Ukwa West LGA of Abia State. This gruesome find will once again drive home the horrors of Operation Python Dance and why all those that participated in its instigation and execution such as Ohaneze Ndigbo, South East governors and selected Igbo elders and politicians must not go unpunished.

If anything, this cold-blooded execution and unceremonious dumping of dead bodies in the forest by Fulani soldiers in Obiawom village in Ukwa West under the control of Abia State governor Okezie Ikpeazu is ample justification for the recent decision of IPOB to disengage from any further talks with Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors until all issues surrounding the genocidal Operation Python Dance is cleared up.


Had these number of murder victims been discovered in any Muslim country, region or part of the world, the International Criminal Court (ICC),  United Nations, Britain, USA and world media will be up in arms demanding explanation and holding the perpetrators accountable. Because these events are happening to Biafrans in Nigeria; where an Islamic government, along with her security operatives staffed by Fulani officers are aiding and protecting Hausa Fulani herdsmen and their kinsmen in the army from the consequences of the worst form of ethnically motivated genocide presently in Africa, the world remains deaf to the cries of IPOB. The site of these decomposed bodies should be designated as an international crime scene and promptly investigated.


Should the United Nations, ICC, USA and European Union fail to act on this gruesome discovery of mass grave of Biafrans in Ukwa Ngwa Abia State, we would conclude that there exists a credible bias and conspiracy to exterminate and Islamise Biafra by the pro-Islamic international community.

As we draw near to the anniversary of the murderous invasion of Afaraukwu on the 14th of September 2017, we once again call on Igbo governors, the global Christian community, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and other reputable and relevant human rights organisations around the world, to prevail upon the International Criminal Court, the Nigeria Government and her security operatives to release the remaining dead bodies of Biafrans in their custody since last year. An international panel of enquiry must be constituted as a matter of urgency to investigate the atrocities of this Buhari regime against innocent populations in Nigeria and Biafra in particular.

IPOB Revokes Ceasefire, Suspends Further Meeting With Ohanaeze, South-East Governors Over Insincerity And Vows On "No Referendum No Election"


IPOB Press Release 

August 10, 2018


Following the inability of Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors to de-proscribe the activities of IPOB in line with the stated objectives of the Prof. Ben Nwabueze convened peace initiative, the leadership of IPOB hereby suspend, with immediate effect, any future contact or participation in meetings involving Ohaneze Ndigbo leadership or South East governors. The ceasefire announced as a gesture of goodwill after the first Enugu meeting is now officially revoked with no hope of future reinstatement.

Mindful of posterity and our deep respect for Prof. Nwabueze, who personally pleaded that we suspend all negative comments and verbal attacks against Ohaneze Ndigbo. We duly obliged by announcing a binding cessation of all hostilities against corrupt Igbo leaders despite the fact they knowingly and actively connived with Fulani overlords to kill IPOB activists, invade the home of our leader with the intention to kill him out of petty jealousy over his popularity and acceptance by the people. That our leader and his parents are still missing is a direct consequence of the connivance of Igbo leaders with their Fulani masters to destroy the agitation for Biafra.

IPOB towed this path of peaceful dialogue because of our deep respect for our more honourable and truthful elders whose wise counsel compelled us to give peace a chance. What has transpired over the past two months, culminating in the failed meeting of the 8th of August 2018 in Enugu, have clearly demonstrated the unwillingness of Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors to breakaway from their slavish master-servant relationship with the Fulani caliphate. These unrepentant collaborators and instigators of Operation Python Dance abused the privilege IPOB ceasefire afforded them by seeking to turn the meeting into an endorsement of an Igbo candidate for PDP vice presidential slot in the coming 2019 elections.

Under such circumstance, we felt the meeting had lost its purpose hence the need for us to pull out of any talks which consequently brought the entire process to an end.

As a result of these meetings, any lingering doubt that Ohaneze Ndigbo, South East governors and some Abuja based political jobbers instigated Operation Python Dance, has been dispelled by their inability to lift the proscription they themselves imposed on IPOB. Fulani governors of the north never proscribed murderous Boko Haram or Fulani terror herdsmen but Igbo governors and politicians hastily proscribed the only movement, IPOB, fighting for the masses because they want to continue enjoying Abuja patronage. As the masses continue to wallow in abject poverty and oppression, these Igbo sell-out leaders, their families and cronies will continue to live large courtesy of their all powerful Fulani masters who can make or break them.

Having dutifully attended three meetings in the past 7 weeks with nothing to show for it, these collaborators and traitors have become more emboldened in their subterfuge to the extent of boasting to observers sent by Aso Rock to the Enugu meeting of the 8th of August that IPOB has been thoroughly weakened and reduced to begging to be de-proscribed.

Sadly, some of the attendees of the shameful emergency Igbo elders meeting convened to endorse Operation Python Dance at Nike Lake Resort a day after the deadly invasion of Afaraukwu by Nigerian soldiers were also present at the Enugu meeting. In due course, we shall hold them accountable for their actions. They lacked the courage then to issue a statement condemning Operation Python Dance and they still do so till today because they were all in the know or actively involved in the planning of the massacre of their own people because of money.

It has dawned on the worldwide family of IPOB that this well-intended peaceful dialogue, from inception, was a fraud, a charade and political subterfuge designed to get IPOB to participate in 2019 elections and nothing more. Ohaneze Ndigbo and their allies in Abuja saw it as an opportunity to prove to their northern Fulani controllers that they are still in charge of the South East. Nothing could be further from the truth. IPOB is the people and the people is IPOB.
This game plan of seeking to subdue IPOB through a series of endless and meaningless meetings in the name of forging a common front or lasting peace is dead on arrival. IPOB will no longer participate in any meeting or dialogue involving Ohaneze Ndigbo. They mistook our magnanimity for weakness. That, unfortunately, is the greatest mistake they would ever make in their lives.

This bunch will go down as the worst set of leaders in the history of the Igbo race. For 48 years they have been actively involved in trading the future of their children and unborn generations for peanuts. Under their stewardship, nothing worthwhile has been accomplished for the masses since after the war. They are ravenous, predatory and devoid of conscience. We gave them an opportunity to redeem themselves but they failed woefully. This generation of IPOB and history shall judge them very harshly.

Henceforth, anybody seeking to deal with IPOB must contact our world headquarters in Germany where their enquiry will be directed to the appropriate quarters. We would no longer recognise any third party involvement. This will ensure we avoid a repeat of what just transpired with this failed dialogue with Ohaneze Ndigbo.

We wish to thank Prof. Nwabueze immensely for all his efforts and to convey our deep appreciation, regard and respect for him. We also urge him to hold tenaciously to his publicly stated stance that de-proscription of IPOB and the whereabouts of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a prerequisite for any peaceful settlement. IPOB hereby reinstate it's avowed commitment to conduct a referendum as soon as possible.

The Rejoiner; "Blame Game Over Kanu's Whereabouts" Futile Attempt By State Sponsored Agent Exposed - IPOB Press Release



IPOB Press release

July 29, 2018

Our attention has been drawn to a publication in the Leadership newspapers online news titled "Blame game over Kanu's whereabouts" published on July 26, 2018, which can be accessed via the link: https://leadership.ng/2018/07/26/biafra-blame-game-over-kanus-whereabout/

This article was credited to one Kunle Olasanmi. A cursory glance at the publication reveals the dark motives of the author, who to all intent and purposes is an agent of the state. His expositions as conveyed, calls for serious caution and commensurate alert on the part of the public that they might not be misled.

It is a matter of common knowledge, backed by quantum and incontrovertible photographic and video evidence, that the murderous military invasion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's (leader of Indigenous People of Biafra) home on the 14th day of September 2017 and his abduction therein by the invading soldiers was an occurrence which the international community and responsible human rights bodies, such as Amnesty International had severally indicted the Nigerian military.

The Nigerian army's involvement in the invasion and massacre of defenceless and unarmed members of IPOB present in Afaraukwu on that fateful day of 14 September 2017 is the irreducible and constant critical point of reference in any discussions regarding the whereabouts of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

It will be fair to say the warped views expressed by this Kunle in this newspaper publication is mischievous and deceitful, aimed at misleading the public. Such calculated attempt to rewrite history and absolve a culpable Nigerian state of their complicity in the disappearance of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu must obviously enjoy the funding/sponsorship of the state.

The subliminal message being conveyed by this vicious author, is that plans are at advanced stages for another possible military invasion of the South East and parts of South-South. We envisage another extra-judicial murderous attack on the homes of Nnamdi Kanu's co-defendant that were only recently granted bail after spending three years in prison custody for a crime that does not yet exist.


Needless to emphasize that Justice Binta Nyako had, pursuant to the application made in open court by IPOB lawyers, placed a ban on any form of threat or invasion of Nnamdi Kanu's co-defendants' homes. The judge ordered that no security personnel should disturb the peace of Benjamin Madubugwu, Bright Chimezie, David Nwawuisi and Chidiebere Onwudiwe.
Kunle's futile attempt to ignore this version of the order again reveals his true motives and gave his article away as a ploy by the Fulani-controlled DSS and military to launch another murderous invasion of Biafraland.

The essence of this rejoinder is to put the record straight and correct the carefully packaged lies being sold to the gullible public by this mercenary going by the name Kunle. Most importantly, we are obliged to put the international community on alert about this latest plan by the Buhari regime to disrupt the peace in both South-East and South-South. Should anything untoward happen to Nnamdi Kanu’s co-defendants, this Buhari regime must be held accountable for it. Let the Government refrain from any act that may jeopardise the bail granted to the four innocent Biafrans.

We continue to demand the military produce Nnamdi Kanu wherever he is being kept. The federal government of Nigeria is yet to formally respond to numerous queries from the British government demanding an explanation on the whereabouts of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu their citizen. Only time will tell how long this macabre dance will last.

Buhari Regime Not Different From Any Other Brutal Anti-Democratic Dictatorship --- IPOB


IPOB PRESS RELEASE 

It is important we let every politician in Nigeria who doubt our resolve or feel that IPOB will bulge in its determination to boycott every election in Biafraland come 2019, to understand that they are dreaming. Elections in Nigeria has never benefited the common man since 1963. The age-long manipulation of Southerners by the ruling Fulani caliphate in every election since 1963 in Nigeria is a strategy that has repeatedly occurred and cannot be reversed unless we take the bull by the horn and stop the entire voting process in every election until our demand for a referendum is acceded to.

Only a person diagnosed with psychiatric illness will contemplate voting in any elections under the present climate of totalitarianism. The humiliating disregard for constitutional protocol by the Buhari regime and his party APC, with reference to the ongoing treatment of lawmakers and senior officers of the legislature by the Fulani controlled police, military and SSS, confirms what we have been saying all along, that in Nigeria your PVC is worse than useless.

There is no difference between this Buhari regime and any other brutal anti-democratic dictatorship that got into office through the ballot box. The single feature they all share is that they all got into office via a democratic means but predictably march on to emasculate every dissenting voice through terror, blackmail and intimidation.

IPOB has been calling for total boycott of elections since early 2015 when our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu saw what most people couldn't have foreseen in their lifetime that Nigeria is irredeemably disunited, corrupt and on a slippery slope to Somalia. The only possible way to bring down a brutal dictatorship is through popular revolution, the kind of which IPOB is spearheading not ballot box, because dictators never play by the rules of the game.

This version of Nigeria our colonial masters Britain created in 1914 has turned into an uncontrollable, unaccountable monster intent on devouring every living being unless the masses rise up now to defend their right to exist as free beings under liberty and the rule of law. IPOB has proven and will continue to provide a platform for disenchanted and disenfranchised citizens- regardless of ethnicity and religion, who believe in the irreducibility of fundamental freedoms such as liberty, right to self-determination, free speech and right to peaceful assembly.

IPOB is the only movement with the mettle, presence and clout to put a halt to the charade called elections in the South-South and South East in 2019. The manipulation of electoral outcomes by the corrupt ruling class must be put to an end next year. This is a golden opportunity for all lovers of freedom and liberty to effect a positive and lasting change.

Voting in a bunch of hardened semi-illiterate people into power in Nigerian elections has never benefited anybody. Thankfully a majority of Biafran people have come to the full realisation that only a total and complete boycott of elections in South East and South-South can disorganize Nigeria sufficiently enough to pave the way for a peaceful referendum to be conducted or they face the unpalatable option of a chaotic disintegration of the country.

Our demand as IPOB is very simple. We want self-determination through a peaceful and democratic process which is referendum or the world will bear witness to the unavoidable cataclysmic implosion of Nigeria with millions of people dead and the inevitable tidal wave of black refugees heading to Britain, Europe and the United States. Britain must think and act fast before it's too late.

Buhari's Hypocritical Speech at The Hague, and His Continued Extra Judicial Detention of Dasuki, El-Zakizaki


IPOB PRESS RELEASE

July 22, 2018

The family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and it's leadership worldwide condemn in the strongest possible terms, the statement credited to Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) Alhaji Mallami over the refusal of this Buhari' administration to obey multiple court orders to release both Sheikh El-Zakzaki and former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki from extrajudicial detention. The most recent ruling by Hon. Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court Abuja admitting Dasuki on bail has once again been ignored, so has numerous pronouncements by the courts to set Sheik El-Zakzaki free. This flagrant disobedience of the rule of law is not only shameful but also an impeachable offence.

Coming at the heels of 'Buhari's' lecture at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague on the virtues of rule of law and the commitment of his government to adhere to court orders, it is hypocritical and criminal for those that invited 'Buhari' to address them at the Hague conference to keep silent as rule of law is being destroyed in Nigeria. The black African President of the ICC Judge Chile Eboe-Osuji and the equally black African Chief Prosecutor of the court Madame Fatou Bensouda must cover their faces in shame for inviting a man they know doesn't obey the law to address them on the need for a government to adhere to the rule of law.

Should Africans be overlooked in the future for such sensitive appointments such as the ICC President or Chief Prosecutor, Africans should not complain of racism because such sensitive offices should be reserved for not only brilliant legal minds but also those who cannot be swayed by sentimental or material considerations. Inviting Buhari to address the ICC when he has steadfastly refused to obey the law when it comes to Col. Dasuki, Sheikh El-Zakzaky and many IPOB detainees is the greatest mistake the court has ever made.

It doesn't speak well of the diplomatic community in Nigeria either, especially Britain, the colonial master and creator, to maintain a deafening silence in the face of unbridled tyranny. If Britain can offer its public opinion on the probity or lack of, in the conduct of elections in Ekiti State, surely it has a moral obligation to admonish the 'Buhari' government on its refusal to obey the law. Refusal to obey any given court order is a reaffirmation that Nigeria is only practicing paper democracy, not indeed.

Anywhere on earth, the government is above the law, that society seizes to be regarded as democratic. A US president obeys court orders, so does a British Prime Minister, why not 'Buhari'. Therefore those presently referring to Nigeria as a democracy are knowingly and willfully misleading the public, because democracies obey the rule of law.

When an Attorney General of a country proudly stand up to defend what is, in essence, indefensible, one is bound to question the collective mental ability of such a society and wonder if indeed they are civilised.

Courage means standing up for what is right, especially in defence of those who cannot defend themselves regardless of ethnicity, religion or orientation. That is what IPOB was created for and what it will continue to uphold until Biafra is restored and beyond.
A race of people without conscience, as demonstrated by the two black principal officers of ICC that invited a dictator like Buhari to address them, could not possibly serve any useful purpose beyond servitude. If in the future black Africans are denied the opportunity to serve at such lofty levels, let no one cry racism.

Judge Chile Eboe-Osuji and Madame Fatou Bensouda have brought shame and dishonour to a hallowed institution like the ICC by inviting a dictator they know doesn't obey the law, to address them. The very least they can now do, along with the diplomatic community of civilised nations resident in Nigeria, is to prevail upon 'Buhari' to release Col. Dasuki and Sheikh El-Zakzaky without further delay as ordered by various law courts of the Federal Government of Nigeria. Nigeria Bar Association, National Judicial Council (NJC) and the entire judicial machinery in Nigeria should consider going on strike as a way of forcing this government to obey judicial pronouncements.

Nigeria Elections: No Amount Of PVC Can Defeat Buhari's APC Coalition Of INEC, Army And Police


IPOB PRESS RELEASE 

July 19, 2018

Those unfortunate enough to have witnessed the disgraceful charade that passed as Ekiti State governorship election over the weekend, would no doubt by now have come to the full realisation that only a total and complete boycott of elections in Nigeria has the remotest chance of setting the poor masses free. For anybody to describe the electoral dance of shame at Ekiti as "free and fair elections"  means that Nigeria is yet to develop an appreciable sense of understanding of what democratic elections is meant to be. This singular event at Ekiti has proven IPOB right yet again, that voting in Nigeria within the present political arrangement is utterly useless and counterproductive.

Under the current electoral conditions in Nigeria, a PVC has transmuted from a supposedly potent object of freedom to one of bondage. IPOB worldwide, therefore, wish to restate categorically and for purposes of clarity that it would boycott all elections in Nigeria come 2019. Presidential elections next year will afford IPOB an opportunity to demonstrate our cast iron determination to set Biafra free by totally shutting down South East and South South.

Anybody campaigning, seeking or hoping to get IPOB to participate in any election is wasting their time. It has been established beyond doubt that PVC in Nigeria, as presently intended, is a tool of enslavement which IPOB can never be a party to. Should other parts of Nigeria wish to continue living in denial and keep participating in what is essentially an organised fraud, then they are welcome to do so. South East and South South will not vote.

By going out to vote, instead of demanding their freedom, the masses are only helping tyrants legalise rigging and electoral fraud. What people are doing by voting is willingly and legally renewing their pain and suffering every 4 years.

IPOB are fully aware that electioneering has never removed a tyrannical dictatorship in the history of the world, only disciplined popular resistance have.  There is no better, more clearly defined resistance, than that being offered by IPOB at this precise moment. Self-determination is the solution to all the ills bedevilling Nigeria.

We IPOB understand more than most that only self-determination for all ethnic nationalities in Nigeria can guarantee, peace, freedom and the much-vaunted unity. Only self-determination through referendum can bring an end to the endless cycle of genocide, ethnic cleansing, Islamisation, criminality and hardship.
Unfortunately, some South-East, South-South and Middle Belt leaders are still chasing rats by pleading for more states and literally begging for restructuring, while their home is on fire. Instead of them to boldly proclaim that there will be no election without a referendum come 2019, they are busy repeating the mistakes of the past. They are by their actions sleep-walking into Buhari's trap and second tenure for APC given the following conditions:

1. INEC Chairman Mahmood Yakubu, apart from being a Fulani was on EFCC radar when Buhari anointed him as INEC Chairman. History and precedent tells us he can never work against Buhari and wider Fulani interest.

2. Amina Zakari who is INEC Director of Operations is not only Fulani but is actually Buhari's niece.

3. The number of underage voters in Kano alone is more than all those who collected their PVC in the South East and South South. Besides, under the current reign of terror, no returning officer in the core north would dare risk his life by allowing anyone other than Buhari to be declared the winner.

4. All the institutions which should act as electoral watch-dogs and umpires (including all the security forces) are under the control of the Fulani.

South East/South East/Middle Belt would be foolhardy to agree to participate in the 2019 elections under such conditions. They would simply be legitimising a gigantic fraud.

There is no way out but for all Southern Nigeria and Middle Belt to collectively stand their ground, shun N4,000 per PVC as happened in Ekiti State and join IPOB to call for a referendum before any presidential election can be held. Only this approach will yield a positive outcome. Anything else will result in the extension of this cruel barbaric regime for another four years. At the end of which there will be no indigenous Middle Belt populations left.

If the opposition like let them bring 1 million groups together to form a coalition against APC, 'Buhari' or whosoever is bearing his name will still win hands down. This is because the coalition of APC, INEC, Army, Airforce, Navy, Civil defence and Police is more deadly than any coalition. The best option is to boycott the election, the fear of which will force them to soft-pedal.

We IPOB are asking for the boycott of all Nigerian elections in 2019 in Biafraland, Middle Belt and the rest of Southern Nigeria as the only way to save lives, end all suffering in the land and entrench peace and unity.
