We will shut down Imo state, if our detained mothers are not released - IPOB spit fire


IPOB PRESS RELEASE

We condemn the sacrilegious arrest, illegal detention and barbaric torture of grandmothers arrested and held in military custody by Nigerian soldiers and police under the most appalling conditions. It is unheard of anywhere in the world that old women, some of them grandmothers, were arrested by army or police, teargassed, locked-up and tortured for exercising their constitutionally guaranteed right to peaceful assembly.


If there were any doubts before that Ala-Igbo and the rest of Biafraland is a Fulani conquered territory, the abominable treatment of elderly women on a peaceful March, arrested, tortured and interrogated like common criminals, have all but dispelled it. That Imo State government gave the go-ahead to northern Islamic army and police formations across Imo State to abduct and torture our mothers, is a clear confirmation that Rochas Okorocha and his government has no regard for us as a people.

The intention of the Islamic APC government is to intimidate and humiliate our people, women and the elderly. The abduction of grandmothers, some of them in their late 70s, is the worst kind of abomination. It is an invitation to anarchy because if by the close of business on Monday, August 20, 2018, IPOB will call for a civil uprising against the oppressors and their agents in Ohaneze Ndigbo and government houses across Biafraland.

This level of desecration and sacrilege will not happen in Arewa North neither will it be condoned in Yorubaland. It is happening in Biafraland because those that parade themselves as leaders (SE governors and Ohaneze) are cowards, appointed by the caliphate to act as their agents.

When Fulani terrorist herdsmen rape our mothers in the farms, destroy our crops and means of livelihood, you don't see any army or police rushing to protect them. No Fulani terror herdsmen has ever been arrested by the Nigerian army or police. But the same long-suffering mothers, with nobody to protect them, are the ones being arrested, detained and tortured for exercising a constitutionally guaranteed right.

As with other conspiratorial atrocities in Biafraland perpetrated by the Nigerian army, DSS and police, Igbo governors as the chief security officer of their states alongside Ohaneze Ndigbo, must be held responsible. Even in the North where Rochas Okorocha comes from, they don't arrest elderly women on a protest march.

It's a pity that Nigeria security who cannot afford to stop or curtail Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram terrorists rampaging and killing people in every part of the country, only demonstrate their might against elderly women who only came out to demand for their right. IPOB will not hesitate to alert the world that Okehi Police Station in Etche Rivers State is where the torture of Biafran women is taking place.

Impending Operation Python Dance III: Another License to Murder Biafrans - IPOB


August 19, 2018

IPOB Press Statement

Following a recent statement by the Fulani Islamic dominated Nigerian Army led by Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai regarding the impending commencement of another murderous season of Operation Python Dance across Biafraland, we the family members of the Indigenous  People of Biafra (IPOB) and it's leadership worldwide wish to alert the public that Nnia Nwodo led Ohanaeze Ndigbo/South East governors sponsored Islamic massacre of innocent Biafrans is once again in the pipeline. Let no one be deceived as to the real motives of the so-called Igbo leaders and Abuja based politicians, behind this latest round of impending slaughter of Biafrans.

The bitter truth is that South-East governors, Lagos-Abuja based Igbo politicians who are dependent on the political patronage of their Fulani godfathers, with the active connivance of Ohaneze Ndigbo, are the people behind every Operation Python Dance that ever took place. These Igbo politicians see the periodic military massacre of their own people as a necessary sacrifice that must be made to ease their Fulani masters and ensure their political survival, electoral victory and relevance because they know in Nigeria true power belongs to the Fulani caliphate.

To Nnia Nwodo’s Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors, especially Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu and Willie Obiano, the best way an Igbo politician can demonstrate his one Nigeria credentials is to actively participate or facilitate the wholesale slaughter of his own people. Should Buratai's Islamic soldiers march on the streets of Biafraland anytime in 2018 and beyond, Biafrans must hold Gov. Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Willie Obiano and Nnia Nwodo led Ohaneze Ndigbo responsible.

More unarmed, peaceful IPOB family members has been killed in the past year than all Boko Haram terrorists and genocidal Fulani herdsmen put together. When Fulani herdsmen attacked and killed unarmed villagers in Nimbo Enugu State, no Igbo governor or Ohaneze Ndigbo asked for Operation Python Dance to defend the people. In fact they became dumb. It is common knowledge that Aso Rock refused to take the calls of Gov. Ugwuanyi. Commander of 82 Division Enugu and various leaders of state security agencies that litter couldn't be reached until the Fulani killers left.

When it comes to the killing of peaceful IPOB family members, phone calls from Igbo governors and Nnia Nwodo are promptly answered and soldiers deployed immediately. Isn't it ironic that Igbo governors, Ohaneze Ndigbo, Fulani officers and soldiers that make up the bulk of the Nigerian Army, have chosen to ignore the murderous tendencies of Islamic extremism perpetrated by their own kith and kin in Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen but have instead turned their rage and guns on unarmed IPOB fighting for their God given right to self determination?

To make matters worse, the newly announced Operation Python Dance for the ember months of 2018 is coming on the heels of the discovery of yet more dead bodies of victims of Operation Python Dance from last year, in mass graves in Ukwa Ngwa Abia State in the past week. Ohaneze Ndigbo and Igbo governors will not even allow IPOB to finish burying those their Fulani masters killed last year before inviting them to come and kill us again. They have no regard for even the dead.

The criminal and conspiratorial silence of Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu, Igbo governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo in the face of the discovery of mass graves in Abia State is damning proof that these men we regard as political and traditional leaders in Igboland especially are nothing more than lilly-livered traitors, quislings and cowards, only interest in serving the will of their Fulani masters.

The number of IPOB family members killed extra judicially as a result of Operation Python Dance and associated military operations in the South East/South South by northern Islamic dominated Nigerian Army, run into hundreds, with many still missing and unaccounted for till date. Igbo governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo is silent on these atrocities because they are part of it as confirmed by IPOB intelligence that intercepted Gov. Wille Obiano's conversation with a top northern military commander in Onitsha Barracks.

Therefore, we wish to alert the public that the same Igbo men involved in the planning and execution  of Operation Python Dance across Biafraland last year are at it again this year. South East governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo should be held responsible should Buratai decide to march his Fulani Islamic soldiers into our land on another killing expedition designed to reduce the population of the South East.

We wish to place it on record that Ohaneze Ndigbo led by Nnia Nwodo, current crop of South East governors and Igbo political contractors in Abuja and Lagos, will never be forgiven for their crimes and atrocities against our people. For the sake of electoral victory, money, contracts and political appointments, they have helped in the further enslavement of a long suffering people.  They are fighting against IPOB because they don't want the people to be set free.

Biafraland has become a colonial outpost of the Fulani caliphate thanks to these men. Those of them that planned Operation Python Dance last year and seeking to do same this year because of their hatred for Biafra; the Lagos/Abuja errand boys that sold their soul to the Devil in return for political office, must know that judgment is fast approaching.  They and their families will be held accountable at the appointed time. There will be no mercy. Let them not say they were not warned.

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.
