Biafra: Mass arrests and brutality cannot deter us, Akwa Ibom is part of Biafra -  IPOB to FG

IPOB members demonstrate on the streets


We the global family of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) condemn in it's entirety the continued and barbaric torture of IPOB family members arrested in Akwa Ibom State yesterday 12th of June, 2019. A combined forces of Police, Army and DSS descended on a peaceful gathering and abducted over 122 innocent and unarmed citizens including a three-year-old child that committed no crime. Security agencies through this wholly barbaric and undemocratic act have unwittingly highlighted the fact that Akwa Ibom State is part and parcel of the agitation for Biafra independence. Abducting and illegally detaining people is the greatest recruitment weapon for IPOB. So better know their arrest and brutality will never deter us. 

Those that sought to pigeon- hole IPOB agitation as an Igbo affair will now understand very clearly that other ethnic nationalities within enclave of Biafra are yearning for freedom too. 

We must warn that Ibiobio Biafrans are under server torture at the hands of northern Fulani soldiers and Police garrisoned in Akwa Ibom and every other part of Biafraland to intimidate and humiliate our people.

The abduction of 140 IPOB members in Enugu State last month and this recent 122 in Akwa Ibom State on 12th of June 2019 is an indication that Nigerian  government headed by Fulani Jihadists, aided and abated by sections of the Yoruba political class are in total dilemma over the tenacity and determination we continue to demonstrate in the face of a brutal crackdown.

We understand the Nigerian government is doing this because of the total compliance seen in Akwa Ibom during the sit at home order issued by IPOB high command to remember and honour our fallen heroes and heroines who sacrificed their early precious lives during the serial killings and genocidal war organised and conducted against the people of Biafra from 1966 to 1970.

Our people were abducted in the state of Akwa Ibom because of the unity flowing in our vain among the people in the whole of Biafraland. It is clearly in the public domain that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is moving across the globe like a wild fire unifying and bringing Biafrans all over the world together for the total liberation of our homeland. Therefore, this has recently put the Fulani government and cabals in Aso Rock into more panic and confusion. 

We are aware that our people were arrested to stop them from strategizing to drive home the demand for Biafra referendum in Akwa Ibom which is targeted to become a reality by the last quarter or end of this year.

We are not cowed by the fact that Fulani military in Biafraland summoned the courage to intimidate and humiliate our fathers, mothers, sisters and youths who came out in support of Biafra freedom. It is on record that Fulani military, Police and DSS cannot intimidate or harass, Alamijri, Fulani Herdsmen or Boko Haram terrorists in the whole of the north.

We are reliably informed that Nigeria Government, Hausa Fulani security operatives in Akwa Ibom State especially police commissioner and his killer squad selected over 70 people from among those abducted illegally yesterday in Akwa Ibom State and transferred them to a secret and unknown place for possible execution with the support of APC government in Abuja and members in the State. 

It was also gathered that they have perfected plans to start house to house search against anybody suspected to be sympathizer or IPOB member in Akwa Ibom State. Those selected from the arrested members are undergoing serious and severe torture, at the time of the issuing of this statement.

It is pathetic that Nigeria security forces who cannot afford to stop or curtail Fulani Herdsmen and Boko Haram terrorists who are rampaging and killing people in every part of the country are only strong in abducting IPOB members who come out to demand for referendum. It is the responsibility of the governor of Akwa Ibom State Dr. Emmanuel Udom, members of the state House of Assembly and other stakeholders in the State to do the needful by prevailing upon the Fulani police in Akwa Ibom to release those they abducted including a three-year-old child without further delay.

Democracy Day: Why Prof Humphrey Nwosu's Name Was Excluded From The List of Democracy Heroes In Nigeria!


Nigeria’s Democracy Day is a public holiday to commemorate the restoration of democracy in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Democracy day is a day that has been set aside for us to reflect on the activities of the government and its leaders and how much they have been able to promote the rule of law and continue the act of good governance as laid down by the heroes of this Nation who fought for the return of democracy after years of Authoritarian regime.

Has President Mohammadu Buhari really embraced democracy? In so many occasions, President Buhari and the APC-led administration has perfected its plans to truncate Nigeria’s democracy following the allegation of false declaration of asset against the Chief Justice of Nigeria. The false declaration of asset charges levelled against Onnoghen showed that the federal government under the watch of President Muhammadu has orchestrated the destruction of democracy in Nigeria.

On the 6th of June 2018, Buhari declared 12th of June the new democracy day. He also honoured MKO Abiola and Gani Fawehinmi post humouredly. Babagana Kingibe was equally honoured. These were great men of repute, and I don't have any objection about their being honoured. To say the least, they deserve to be honoured for their contributions in building the nation, if at all we've built any.

But let me ask these questions. Why was this day declared the democracy day? Did Abiola die on this day? Or did Fawehinmi die on this day? What did Kingibe do on this day? Let me try and answer these questions. Neither Abiola nor Fawehinmi died on this day. Abiola and Kingibe were only participants in the election conducted on that day. But I guess this was not what made this day a democracy day for if it is, Toga would have been honoured too.

What made 12th June different from 23rd February 2019 and indeed all other presidential elections in this country? The answer to this question is definitely why this day is regarded as genuine democracy day. If you've not gotten the answer to the question, it is the day the freest and fairest election was conducted in this country. What baffles me is how the participants in this election were honoured but the person who conducted the election was ignored.
I am talking of Professor Humphrey Nwosu. I'm left with no other option but to believe he was ignored because he was an Igbo man. If he were to be Professor Attahiru Jega or Professor Mahmood Yakubu, he would have been honoured. This is one of the reasons why the Igbos feel that they are not wanted in Nigeria, hence the agitation for secession.

With this type of treatment, surely this country will divide. It is a matter of time. Yugoslavia broke into different countries. Eritrea broke away from Ethiopia. Czech Republic broke away from Czechoslovakia. And more recently, South Sudan broke away from Sudan. Professor Humphrey Nwosu’s name was excluded from the lists of names honoured on the Nigeria’s Democracy Day simply because he is an Igbo man. This write - up is completely how I feel. Any contrary view is welcome.

Nnamdi kanu and IPOB members in USA

The international move to gather Biafrans together for the total and final liberation of  Biafran people from Nigeria by our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is gathering momentum across the whole world especially during this present visit to United States of America (USA). This visit to America  is bringing all Biafrans residing in America and other parts of the world together to pursue a common cause under one dominant ideology as propagated by IPOB.

Biafrans in different parts of America both Ijaw, Igala, Idoma, Ogoni, Igbo, Igbanke, Anang, Uhrobo, Efik and others are gathering together and speaking with one voice to proffer solutions and work towards a realistic strategy for Biafra freedom.

Our people in America last week hosted our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, his wife Mrs Uchechi Okwu Kanu and his entourage at the Martin Luther Jnr Center in Atlanta Georgia on May 30, 2019.

Many more Biafrans and diaspora organisations are also preparing to host him in the various town hall meetings across the United States from Chicago to Houston, New York city, Maryland and Washington DC.

He will also visit Toronto   Canada this weekend for an important meeting with IPOB family and Biafrans in Canada.

 are urging those doubting Thomases both in America and Canada to come out and confront our leader regarding any issue or grudge they may have. It is a challenge we expect people to rise up to. IPOB is an open institution that welcome everybody, therefore our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will be ready to answer any question that may come from Biafrans regardless of your ethnicity, orientation or affiliation.

Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in his numerous broadcasts via radio Biafra London have made it abundantly clear to all that whenever our people in abroad come out, especially those in America for this divine and restoration project championed by IPOB that Biafra independence is at hand.

As this town hall meeting is ongoing across America so too is our underground diplomatic moves to restore Biafra. The effort to engage all major stakeholders, both local and international by our leader during this tour USA and Canada, is an indication that no stone is left unturned in this divine Biafra restoration project. We thank the Most High God Chukwu Okike Abiama who made his journey a successful one. The gesture and respect our people living in America accorded to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is awesome, we ask God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama to bless and protect them in their effort to make Biafra restoration a reality.
