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.

IPOB slam the chairman of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) for senseless statement

IPOB Press Release

July 14, 2018

We understand the so-called chairman of the quasi terror outfit Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) has directed the Fulani controlled Nigerian Police to, in his words "go after IPOB" for warning terror herdsmen to shelve the idea of ranching anywhere in Biafraland. It is now clear there is  widespread disappointment on the part of the northern ruling class towards IPOB’s anti-ranching statement. That is the only reason why Ohaneze Ndigbo and Igbo governors were pressured to ban IPOB  activities in the first place, to allow for the unchallenged invasion of Igboland by Fulani terror herdsmen.

Perhaps MACBAN did not count on IPOB meeting with Ohaneze Ndigbo and Igbo leaders to resolve lingering issues between them. It is now obvious that had IPOB not accepted the invitation of prominent Igbo leaders to forgive and dialogue with Ohaneze Ndigbo, both Enugu and Ebonyi states would have come under attack by now.

It is our considered opinion and we believe that of the rest of humanity that every man and beast associated with Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association should be pursued by security agencies, apprehended and made to face the law. MACBAN has made itself the mouthpiece of a terror group, the Fulani terror herdsmen, whose dastardly acts and genocidal ethnic cleansing is responsible for thousands of deaths across the Middle Belt.

MACBAN should concern itself with the barbaric conquest and takeover of towns and villages in the Middle Belt which they seems to have largely accomplished. Our homeland Biafra cannot be used for ranching. Not now, not ever. Should the army and police wish to aid their fellow Fulani terrorists to launch an invasion of our land, the world will live to regret it. We maintain that 1967 is not and can never be 2018.

IPOB OPENS UP ON WHY SHE HELD MEETING WITH SOME SELECTED IGBO LEADERS AND OHANAEZE

"The meeting between IPOB, selected Igbo elders and Ohaneze Ndigbo is the first of many such meetings that will be held in the next 2 months to map out and agree an unambiguously strategic approach to the myriad of problems afflicting our people. Our expectation is that at the end of the process, all thorny issues regarding the role certain individuals and groups played in the instigation of the murderous Operation Python Dance II will be adequately ventilated and addressed. 

Other major issues such as the illegal proscription of IPOB and terrorist tag dominated the deliberations. Those that hastily banned IPOB activities in the South East, that precipitated the illegal move by the Federal Government to proscribe IPOB has been given between now and the next meeting to do the needful.

It is our conviction that it is immoral and makes a mockery of natural justice for peaceful, non-violent IPOB to be hamstrung in its efforts to checkmate Fulani terrorists by a ban imposed by the same South East governors whose states are under siege.

The fate of our missing leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his father, HRM Eze Sir Israel Okwu Kanu, the Egwu-Ukwu 2 of Afaraukwu and his mother Ugoeze Sally N. Kanu were also tabled. We are confident that at the next meeting a lot of satisfactory answers will be provided to enable IPOB close this sad chapter in our history.

For reasons bordering on integrity and confidentiality, we are not at liberty to delve into the minutiae of what transpired at the meeting or the identity of those that attended. IPOB is the largest mass movement in the world with an impeccable global reputation. We are not in the business of public disclosure of confidential exchanges regardless of pressure or temptation.

At this present time, we are engaged in sensitive discussions with institutions, governments and agencies around the world. They need to be reassured that under no circumstances will any aspect of our deliberations be divulged to a third party or made public without their prior consent and approval. The same principle applies in our meetings with Igbo leaders until a joint final communique is issued.

Our ongoing dialogue with Igbo leaders and Ohaneze Ndigbo, has come at a very critical stage when the might of IPOB is required to address common security challenges. IPOB would not like to be seen as exerting undue pressure on those involved in making difficult life changing decisions that will undoubtedly determine the success or failure of the parley."

Fulfilment Of Nnamdi Kanu's Prophesies And The Bloody Disintegration Of Nigeria


IPOB PRESS STATEMENT

July 10, 2018

We the worldwide family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) note with sadness and grave concern the impending catastrophic end to Nigeria unless our leader and prophet of our time Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is released from military detention and IPOB allowed to conduct its referendum in peace.

It should be noted that when Buhari was crying his eyes out and agonizing over whether  to run for presidency for the umpteenth time; at a time when grazing reserves and cattle ranching had not even entered the lexicon of political discourse in Nigeria, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu via Radio Biafra broadcasting from London foretold what is to befall Nigeria.

To put the frightening accuracy of his prophetic pronouncements in perspective, here are some of them.

As they campaign vigorously for elections, you would think, they are coming to grow the economy, enthrone justice, breed unity and tolerance, love for one another.No! they are coming to enthrone Hausa/Fulani supremacy, to reposition the security agencies by sacking all competent hands and replace them with their kinsmen in order to drive their ethnic domination of the south." 6 February 2014.

The Fulani herdsmen will be armed and encouraged to slaughter us with impurity and their masters will protect them. They are coming to ensure that my people are enslaved forever. Those who do not, believe me, will soon see it happen before their eyes.“ 6 February 2014.

The Fulani will take over the entire south as a continuation of their age-long agenda to Islamise Eastern Nigeria. They will brazenly seize our land in pretence of creating grazing fields for the Fulani. Then the conquest will be complete, we will become their slaves forever.” 12 October 2014.

When IPOB came with their message of freedom and hope, some people, probably misguided by Fulani sponsored propaganda against Biafra due to their dependency on oil and gas, came up with the narrative that IPOB is preaching hate and will cause another civil war. What those that bought into the Aso Rock lies never knew was that war had already been declared by marauding Fulani terrorists under the false cover of herdsmen/farmer clash. This blatant misrepresentation is still being propagated by BBC, Bloomberg, CNN and their likes, hence the lack of urgency from the international community in tackling the menace.

Fulani feudal lords are not remotely worried over their open declaration and execution of a deadly covert war on the people of Middle Belt and the rest of Southern Nigeria. Whereas the likes of Ango Abdullahi, Hamza Al-Mustafa and other Northern leaders were busy castigating IPOB and calling for military action against our leader for exposing the wickedness at the heart of governance in Nigeria, they have since gone silent on the carnage their herdsmen have unleashed on innocent populations.
The scriptures told us that a prophet is not recognized in his own country. That certainly is true of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu because, despite his warnings, which fell on deaf ears, they accused him of planning to plunge Nigeria into war as justification for the deadly invasion of his home. What happened during the time of Noah is unfolding before our eyes. When he was building the ark, they called him all sorts of names until out of ignorance they perished in the flood that came.  This same fate shall befall all Nigerians unless Nnamdi Kanu is released from military detention to lead the people to freedom and safety. Without this happening, any and every attempt to stem the tide and speed of Fulani murderous invasion will be futile.

Fulani herdsmen are committing state-sponsored genocide in broad daylight in full view of the entire security machinery of Nigeria. This became possible because all security agencies are headed by Fulani men. Their stated mission is to conquer all parts of Nigeria exactly as our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu prophesied. Operation Python Dance II was the forerunner to Fulani invasion of the Middle Belt and Southern Nigeria. Without the military invasion Isiama Afaraukwu, Fulani terror herdsmen would never have dared launch their genocidal onslaught.

Only IPOB can save those that wish to be saved before it's too late. Fulani terrorists have made Benue communities organise countless mass burials. They have walked into a Church- yes, walked straight onto a holy altar, dragged two Catholic priests celebrating mass along with 17 faithfuls and butchered them to death. Rome and Canterbury are still silent, instead, we are told that Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury Welby is a close friend to Buhari.

Shame on all those that conspired against the anointed one because had he been around, Fulani terrorists would not have dreamt of attacking with such impunity and ferocity. Only Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB can save the people.

IPOB DECLARE SEIZE FIRE ON OHANAEZE NDIGBO AND MEETS OHANAEZE ON A ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION



July 6, 2018

Re: IPOB, Ohaneze Ndigbo reconciliation meeting held in Enugu on July 6, 2018

Following an important meeting with some respectable Igbo elders, the representatives of IPOB and leadership of Ohaneze Ndigbo earlier today July 6, 2018 in Enugu, under the distinguished  chairmanship of the very eminent Prof. Ben Nwabueze; IPOB High Command hereby mandate that all forms of verbal attacks and name calling on all media platforms against Ohaneze Ndigbo seize with immediate effect. No IPOB family member should disparage Ohaneze Ndigbo or its leadership until further notice.

This is strictly to give room for a number of representations and demands made by IPOB, to those present at the meeting to be given due attention within the shortest possible time-frame, under an atmosphere devoid of rancor.

The meeting stressed among other things the need for our people, who are presently under siege in parts of Enugu State, to recognise the urgency and need to synergise and constitute a common front against all forms of threats to our existence as a people.

Should this gesture by IPOB, in the face of well documented betrayal and blackmail by the political class be taken for granted, IPOB shall have no option but to stand in the gap to defend the aspirations and collective will of the people of Biafra against every enemy.

IPOB, as the most potent and largest freedom fighting outfit on earth, remains focused, determined and resolute. Our unalloyed commitment to a referendum in pursuit of our emancipation remain sacrosanct and insurmountable.

Mazi Uche Mefor

Persuade Major General Muhammadu Buhari and his soldiers to produce Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB writes UN, UK, others



IPOB PRESS RELEASE

July 3, 2018

With recently leaked intelligence on the whereabouts of our leader, widely reported on all major news platforms, exposing where the Nigerian Government kept our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, we expect the same Nigerian Army that abducted him to charge him to court or release him to the British government. Despite the best efforts of Aso Rock propaganda unit, in concert with Igbo Efulefus to sweep the deadly army invasion of Isiama Afaraukwu on September 14, 2017, that resulted in the death of 28 people under the carpet, this timely intelligence information have nailed their lies to the mast for the world to see.

It is now clear to all and sundry that orchestrated sightings of our leader in Cameroon, Ghana, Niger Delta creeks, Malaysia, London and other weird and wonderful places were lies concocted and planted in mainstream Nigeria media to fool and confuse the public. We the global family of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) and it's leadership wish to reiterate our call to United Nations, Britain, USA and other civilised nations to compel Nigeria to produce our leader. Nigerian Army abducted him when they raided his home with deadly intent.
We know Nigeria is fast becoming a failed state where there are no civilised rules or behaviour. This obvious fact notwithstanding, there is no law in Nigeria, ECOWAS, AU or United Nations that empowers the Nigerian armed forces to kidnap and detain people at will without recourse to a court of law.  Failure to release our leader is an invitation to anarchy because the leadership of IPOB cannot guarantee how long the simmering rage of the masses can be contained.

The periodic harassment of those that stood surety for our leader through Justice Binta Nyako's court is a clever ploy to drum the false narrative into the brains of Nigerians that our leader jumped bail, when in actual fact it was the army that invaded his home and killed 28 people in the process. What the government may have succeeded in doing is convincing some gullible people that deadly invasion of Kanu's home by Nigerian soldiers that led to many being shot dead and injured, doesn't matter and should be forgotten.

This Nigerian Government headed by Major General Muhammadu Buhari and his soldiers must release our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and others abducted alongside him last year during the invasion of his compound, without further delay. Or they can await the catastrophic consequences their extra-judicial killing spree will cause in the near future.

Those in the habit of condoning the excessive human rights abuses of this APC government must know, in the words of one Sir Arthur "Bomber" Harris, that he who sows the wind, will reap the whirlwind. When the inevitable breakdown of law and order starts,  amateur historians and government propagandists should not seek to shift the blame to anybody else. They should be brave enough to acknowledge their handling of the brutality of this Buhari's regime was the catalyst for the inevitable violent demise of Nigeria.

Nigerian Government and her security operatives must produce our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and others abducted with him last year. A near derelict naval vessel stationed in the high sea is not a court of law where guilt and innocence are determined, that remains the exclusive preserve of a court of law.
