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

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.

Bombing of Nwodo's home: Police, DSS and Ohanaeze are hell-bent to tarnish our image - IPOB


IPOB Press Release 
June 30, 2018

It has been brought to the attention of the worldwide family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that Nigerian Police, in collaboration with the murderous DSS, Aso Rock cabal, with active connivance of  some Efulefus in Ohaneze Ndigbo are hell-bent on using the law enforcement instruments of state to give IPOB a bad name. But as always they have failed. Those behind this latest scheme to impugn the unimpeachable integrity of IPOB are the same people that have for four years tried unsuccessfully to label IPOB a terrorist group.


We find it ironic that at a time when murder and mayhem perpetrated by Fulani terrorists is the order of the day across the land, law enforcement agencies in Nigeria, disproportionately staffed and led by core northern Fulani officers, will brazenly seek to divert public attention away from their genocidal ethnic cleansing in the Middle Belt and point same towards IPOB. Only those blessed with irredeemable ignorance and natural stupidity will give this purported arrest of IPOB family members, in connection with an alleged bomb explosion at Nwodo's house, a second thought. Nigerian Police is well known for their uncivilised and crude approach to investigations and will charge a goat with a crime if it will help the local DPO, Commissioner Of Police or governor advance his public relations or as in this case help tarnish the squeaky clean image of IPOB.

Nigerian courts are littered with cases of IPOB family members charged with terrorism, treason, treasonable felony, murder, attempted murder, arson and more outlandish charges not catered for in the Nigerian criminal code but at the end of every legal process, the same police and DSS will end up running away from their law courts. Despite the litany of much-publicised arrests, with thousands illegally detained in police and prison custody across Nigeria, till date no single IPOB family member, we repeat- no single IPOB has ever been convicted of any crime and none will. By DNA we IPOB are God fearing, law abiding citizens under a sacred oath not to commit any crime against person or state because Biafra is the kingdom of heaven on earth.

We are used to these laughable periodic stunt charges and phoney arrests anytime the government is in public relations mess and seeking to divert public attention away from their crimes. How bizarre that peaceful IPOB family members are being arrested when Fulani terror herdsmen have government license to slaughter innocent populations at will. Why won't all these seemingly efficient Fulani police commissioners in the east apply their investigative skills in apprehending and charging Fulani terrorist herdsmen butchering entire communities rather than buying themselves with peaceful IPOB.

Only those with mental health issues will be taken in by this latest gimmick from the Fulani controlled  Enugu State police command. With our referendum around the corner, we expect many more arrests and outlandish charges as a way of attempting to weaken our unbreakable resolve. But as always the Nigerian State will fail as they have always failed in the past.

IPOB is a phenomenon, the largest freedom fighting movement on earth bar none. Any day we pick up arms the world will know about it. We will never dirty our hands with bombs because we have more effective and proven methods of reducing our opponents to nothing without physically harming them.

Nigerian Police are in the unprofessional and crude habit of making periodic prejudicial public statements against IPOB in the hope of incriminating innocent people. This is not the first time and definitely won't be the last. The two men arrested will be defended to the hilt even if they are not IPOB family members because to abandon them at the mercy of a brutal police force will only encourage more arrests of innocent people. During their trial, which we demand should commence immediately, the world will once again witness the accusers of IPOB be put to shame.

IPOB is the saviour of the downtrodden but yet the most persecuted mass movement anywhere in the world. Frivolous charges designed to titillate the senses of the ignorant, the bigoted north and their slaves in governors lodge in the east and Ohaneze Ndigbo compromised leadership, won't hold any water in court. We have always defeated the Nigerian government in their own law courts and this case won't prove to be an exception. As usual, IPOB will clear her name in a court of law while shame will remain the portion of the Efulefus.

Fulani terrorists with their cattle are the people involved in acts of terror, not IPOB. This APC government has been accused of aiding and abetting terrorism by Gen. TY Danjuma and Amnesty International. That is where the police should focus their investigations. Ohaneze Ndigbo and Igbo governors should stop using Fulani controlled Nigerian Police, army and SSS to fight their battles for them. They should meet IPOB at a referendum because these silly stunts by the police, SSS and army will never deter us.
