We’re Getting Ready For Referendum – IPOB |The Republican News

Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said plans are at an advanced stage for the first in its three-stage referendum process, towards the peaceful, non-violent restoration of the nation of Biafra. 

IPOB said its decision to hold the first of the three plebiscite, later this year, has vindicated its resilience in sticking to the principles of non-violent agitation for Biafra, in the face of government’s brutality and treachery from enemies within.

A statement by the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful, said efforts geared towards the first referendum are gathering momentum, with dates for the exercise to be announced, imminently. He added that 40 million ballot papers are being printed for distribution to every clan and village in Biafraland, for all adults over the age of 18 to express their preference.

Powerful said: “Through this age-old democratic process, IPOB shall return power to the long-suffering down-trodden masses, to enable them to determine their destiny, which was cruelly taken away by successive Nigerian governments. This massive consultation exercise will guide all future IPOB activities and, hopefully, address the issue of lack of wider participation by the people, which some Nigerian government agents within have often cited as their reason for working against the emergence of Biafra.

“Those who set out to mislead the populace by equating IPOB’s call for a referendum as a call for war, in order to mask their betrayal of the people, will no doubt find another reason or excuse to object to this upcoming plebiscite.

“Our fight is against a deliberate government policy of mass poverty, irreconcilable and divergent value systems, marginalisation, deprivation, incessant state-sponsored murder, terrorism and unimaginable Fulani nepotism. IPOB’s call for the referendum has nothing to do with war.

“It is worth reminding Ohanaeze Ndigbo and their likes that on February 11, 1961, Nigeria conducted a referendum for the people of Southern Cameroon, to determine whether they wish to be part of Nigeria or merge with Francophone northern Cameroon.

“This referendum resulted in the peaceful secession of the then National Council of Nigeria and the Cameroons (NCNC) controlled Anglophone Cameroon from Nigeria. In other words, they voted to leave Nigeria for good. That was democracy in action, not war.

“No war was fought and no ethnic group was threatened with annihilation. If those parading themselves as leaders, with their much touted academic accomplishments, are not aware of this relatively modern history, then the pervading ignorance in Nigeria, occasioned by the spectacular collapse of the education system, is more generational than earlier thought.”  (The Sun)

Biafra: MASSOB Berates Buhari Over Saying That Nigerian Military Had Mercy On Biafrans During The War

Jeff Amexhi Agbodo, Onitsha

The Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereignty State of Biafra (MASSOB) has berated President Muhammadu Buhari over his comment that Nigeria soldier had mercy on the people of Biafra during the civil war.

The leader of MASSOB, Mr Uchenna Madu, while reacting to the President’s comment described his sudden change or reserve about the Biafra welfare as an alleged ‘mischief and insincerity’.

Madu said: “The sudden reverse or change of tactical approach on issues concerning Biafra consciousness by President Buhari can be likened to an evil man who is dying and confessing his evil atrocities, such death and confessions are beyond the evil man’s control, it is propelled by divine power.

“President Buhari is tactically and subtly making confessional statements that he and his Arewa people think that will pacify the people of Biafra”.

“The eloquently coming together of all pro Biafra groups with the Biafra spirit of oneness and brotherhood including the global successes of 51 years anniversary celebration of Biafra declaration by our utmost leader, General Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and successful sit at home exercise by the people of Biafra are all sending jittery and uncomfortableness to the Nigeria President Buhari and Arewa Hausa Fulani people”.

“The beauty and secret of the success that propelled us are the principals of non-violence, consistencies and self-resolute.

“Though we are being persecuted, blackmailed, oppressed, tortured, imprisoned, killed, mesmerized from the oppressors and enemies of Biafra, we shall never succumb, deviate, derail or compromise this divine movement for the actualization and restoration of Biafra sovereignty”.

“No amount of President Buhari’s antics or hypocritical statements or friendly appearances will ever impress the people of Biafra. We know him as the major slayer of our unborn children” Madu stated.   (The Sun)

We Want Referendum And Not War – Igbo Group |The Republican News

By Kenneth Ofoma, ENUGU

We want referendum, not war – Igbo group

 

An Igbo group, Voice from the East, has stated that majority of the Igbo speaking people of South East and South South otherwise known as Ndigbo do not want any more wars, but a referendum to determine their sovereignty.

The group which embarked on a peaceful protest in Enugu Monday in solidarity for the proposed visit of the United State’s Ambassador at large, Mr. Samuel Brownback, to Nigeria over what the US tagged, “Nigeria is a country of particular concern over killings,” urged US government to save Ndigbo and Christians in Nigeria from a possible extermination and Islamisation.

“We are Igbos, we don’t want war again but a referendum. We don’t want what happened in Turkey to happen in Nigeria,” the group declares.

The group carried placards that read in part as follows: “Herdsmen are agents of Islamisation; “Nigeria is a country of particular concern”, “US government stop killing of Christians”; “Buhari has failed to hold killer herdsmen accountable,” among other things.

Addressing journalists during the protest, the Convener of Voice from the East, Comrade Kindness Jonah, said that they were on the streets to show solidarity for the proposed visit of Mr. Samuel Brownback of the United State’s Commission for International Religious Freedom, USCIRF on his proposed visit to Nigeria over the killings in Nigeria by armed militia herdsmen.

“We welcome Brownback to Nigeria. We welcome USCIRF to Nigeria to stop killing of Christians in Nigeria,” he said.

Jonah accused President Buhari of failing to tame the armed herdsmen and Boko Haram insurgents, saying that he has not done much to check their activities and pointed out that that was part of the reasons why they wanted Biafra.

“Buhari is monetising herdsmen, Boko Haram. That is why he cannot stop them. Buhari has not been talking about the killings. Buhari cannot stop them. He is the patron of Myetti Allah cattle breeders and so cannot stop the killings. We want Biafra and that is why we welcome Brownback to Nigeria,” he said.

“We want to have a referendum and we use the opportunity to ask US President to help Biafra get freedom. We don’t want war but a referendum,” he said. (New Telegraph)

Biafra Day: Five Killed, About 500 Arrested |The Republican News

By  Steve Uzoechi, Emmanuel Masha, Uchenna Inya, Kenneth Ofoma, Emmanuel Ifeanyi and Okegwo Kenechukwu

 

At least five people were feared killed yesterday while the police arrested more than 500 members of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and Biafra Independent Movement (BIM) in the South-East and South-South regions. Several others were injured in clashes with police during rallies in support of planned declaration of the Biafra Republic and hoisting of the Biafran flag.

The rallies were held in major cities of Anambra, Imo, Abia, Ebonyi, Enugu, Rivers and Delta states. Five people were said to have been killed while four others were injured in Anambra State during the 18th anniversary of the “independence of the New Biafra” by the members of MASSOB. The Director of MASSOB Information, Mazi Chris Mocha, said in a statement that the celebration was in continuation of the desire of the group to achieve a sovereignty state of Biafra.

He said: “While we were gathered at the Onitsha-Owerri Road, by Obosi junction, a joint military task force, including the Army, Navy, Police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in over 45 Hilux vehicles shot five of our members dead. “About 206 members were arrested.

The arrested members included Chief Christian Ifejika, Declan Okafor, Gloria Umejesi, Rose Oforbike, Fidelis Oduenyi, and 173 others.” Mocha said that four persons – Chief Vincent Iloh, Ebuka Emmanuel, Innocent Okolie and Mrs Virginia Ubazuonu – received machete cuts on their heads from the Joint Task Force (JTF) members in their desperate attempt to disperse the crowd. When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Haruna Mohammed, said he was not aware of any arrest or killing. In Imo State, about 84 members of Chief Ralph Uwazuruike-led MASSOB and BIM were arrested by the police in Owerri.

According to the Owerri Zonal Leader of MASSOB/BIM, Mr Samuel Njoku, some members of the group were arrested while conducting a press briefing at the old Timber market (Ogbo Osisi) on Wetheral Road, Owerri, while others were arrested on their way to the rally from Orlu, Mgbidi, Ngor Okpala, Mbaise and Okigwe.

On the reason for their rally, Njoku explained that “since the end of the Civil War in 1970, no Igbo was courageous enough to mention Biafra until Chief Uwazuruike launched MASSOB on September 13, 1999, and on May 22, 2000, declared and hoisted the flag for the new Biafra.”

According to him, the uniqueness of May 22 anchored on its historic importance makes the day a big event for the struggle for the emancipation of Biafran people.

The state PPRO, Andrew Enwerem, said arrested members of BIM/MASSOB were separatists who were nabbed by security operatives of the command from various parts of the state. He said the arrests were based on intelligence information that MASSOB/BIM members were about to conduct themselves in a manner likely to cause a breach of the peace. As early as 7:30a.m., security men were stationed at various entry points of Owerri, to stop MASSOB members from joining the rally while others were also stationed at various local government areas.

Despite the heavy security presence, the demonstrators were able to arrive in buses from nearby council areas of the state with Biafra flags and placards bearing various inscriptions depicting commitment to the Biafran state, wearing Biafran military uniforms and chanting Biafran songs and solidarity slogans.

At least 10 members of MASSOB and BIM were arrested in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. Hundreds of Biafra supporters outside Rivers had stormed Port Harcourt to mark the event, starting a procession at Mile Market and were heading towards Eleme Junction before they were intercepted around Garrison Junction by security operatives.

The security men thereafter released tear gas into the air and arrested 10 of the protesters, mostly those wearing military and NSCDC camouflage. Those that were arrested, according to some of the Biafra supporters, were subsequently taken to the Olu-Obasanjo Police Station in Port Harcourt. Meanwhile, the state PPRO, DSP Nnamdi Omoni, said he was not aware of the arrest. The leader of MASSOB in the state, Solomon Chukwu, lamented that the arrest was unnecessary, noting that they only embarked on a procession and did not engage in any violent behaviour.

Police, soldiers and other security agents arrested scores of members for MASSOB and BIM in Abakaliki in Ebonyi State. Security agencies in the state accosted them on Nkaliki Road as they started the peaceful march, fired tear gas at them and arrested some of them. Army, Department of State Security (DSS) and the police carried out the joint operation. Commander of the Nigerian Military Cantonment in Nkwegu, Col. S. O. Sadiq, confirmed the participation of the Army in the arrest of the Biafra agitators.

He said all the arrested persons were handed over to the police. Sadiq said that MASSOB did not notify security agencies in the state of the event in writing which he said necessitated the arrest. The state PPRO, Loveth Odah, confirmed the incident but could not give the actual number of persons arrested.

“I don’t have the details of the actual number of persons arrested right now when I get the full details I will let you know,” she said. Ebonyi Central MASSOB/BIM leader, Gideon Iloke, said: “Today, we are celebrating Biafra Independence.

We are happy that the world authorities have recognised Biafra as an independent state and that is why throughout the federation, South-South and South-East are celebrating Biafra independence. We also agreed that all the states under Biafra must gather to celebrate the greatness of Biafra because we are grateful for what God has done to us.”

In Aba, Abia State, the police arrested 115 members of MASSOB. The Zonal Leader of the group, for Abia South, Mr Fredrick Onyenucheya, disclosed that the police, aside from arresting 115 members of his group, injured many others.

Onyenucheya, flanked by Chief Obi Anyaogu (leader Abia Central) and Pastor Evans Okoronkwo (Abia North MASSOB/BIM leader), claimed that they were holding peaceful rally to mark this year’s anniversary at Umuorieoma on the Osisioma axis of the Enugu-Aba- Port Harcourt Expressway when policemen in over 20 Hilux vans arrived at the location.

He said that the group members numbering over 200 gathered at Umuorieoma junction by 9a.m. and were peacefully dancing and marching towards No 175, Faulks to hoist the Biafran flag which will mark the 18th-anniversary re-restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra in the year 2000.” The Abia State Commissioner of Police, Anthony Ogbizi, confirmed the arrest of 47 members of MASSOB and BIM in Aba. Ogbizi said those arrested included men and women and were being held in detention in Aba.

He said that although they were peaceful during their march, they were arrested because they wore Army camouflage uniforms and had Biafra flags and insignia in their hands. He said: “We are profiling them and when we finish they would be charged accordingly. “The legal department is there.

They will advise us before we know what else to do.” Also, police in Enugu arrested an undisclosed number of members of MASSOB and BIM for allegedly breaching public peace. The state PPRO, SP Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the arrest in a statement, advised residents to go about their lawful businesses.

Amaraizu said the state Commissioner of Police, Danmallam Mohammed, had “warned against any act or omission by any individual or group of persons under any guise capable of disrupting the existing peace in the state.” Meanwhile, the Imo State correspondent of the Punch newspaper, Emeka Ihiegbulem, was brutally assaulted by policemen for attending a press briefing by the MASSOB.

While the policemen dealt him blows, soldiers and personnel of the NSCDC also shoved him around. Ihiegbulam was in the midst of the MASSOB members, trying to clarify an issue raised when policemen, who were later followed by soldiers, stormed the area; cordoned off the rally and forced everyone including journalists to sit on the ground.

Ihiegbulam said: “I sat down on the ground with all the MASSOB members. I brought out my identity card and my recorder telling the officers that I am a journalist on an assignment and that I was not a MASSOB member.

They ignored my explanations, arrested me alongside the MASSOB members and marched us all into a lorry to the police headquarters.” Ihiegbulam’s beating started when a soldier and policemen tried to force him to hang a Biafran flag around his neck to give the impression he was arrested with the flag.

The man firmly refused while brandishing his identity card and work tools. His refusal infuriated the policemen; while one snatched his identity card, recorder and jotter from him, another slapped him from the back of his head. He was trying to see who slapped him when a heavy wooden club landed on his head. At the State Police Command Headquarters, Ihiegbulam was forced to sit on the ground. But Commander, MOPOL 18, who identified Ihiegbulam among the ‘suspects,’ ordered him out of the ground.        (New Telegraph)

Army Wanted To Meet Kanu’s Father Before Invasion, Says Eze Ajomiwe |RN

By Correspondents

●Monarch told us he decided to rest following invasion – Eze Dick

 

The controversy surrounding the health and whereabouts of the traditional ruler of Afaraukwu Ibeku, Eze Israel Okiru Kanu, and father of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is yet to settle. The monarch has not been seen since September 14, 2017, when soldiers invaded his palace in search of his son. While the chairman of Abia State and South-East Council of Traditional Rulers, His Royal Majesty, Eze Eberechi Dick, said that Eze Kanu is alive, the chairman of Umuahia North Council of Traditional Rulers, Eze Philip Ajomiwe, insisted that the whereabouts of IPOB’s leader’s father is unknown, adding that nobody knows the state of his health too.

Since the invasion of the palace apparently in search of the leader of the IPOB last year, neither the monarch, his son nor wife had been seen nor heard from. Eze Dick who spoke to Saturday Telegraph on the telephone regarding the whereabouts of his colleague said: “We wanted to see him in person; we inquired and found that he is alive.”

However, the traditional ruler of Oriendu, Eze Ajomiwe, who said the last time he spoke with him was early on the day of the invasion, also revealed that the army had scheduled a meeting with Eze Kanu to which he had already agreed before his palace was invaded on that fateful day.

“After speaking with him the army invaded the place later that day and that was the last till today,” he said. According to the chairman of Abia and South East Traditional Rulers Council, Eze Dick, “Eze Kanu told us that the stress of the operation was too much on him that he decided to rest.” Eze Dick, however, observed that: “The local government traditional rulers council where he belongs has not told us he is missing. They have not told us anything happened to him, otherwise, we would have raised the alarm at the state and south-east zonal council of traditional rulers.”

The council chairman said that Eze Kanu spoke to the chairman of the advisory council of Umuahia North council of traditional rulers, who happens to be Eze Ajomiwe, about his health in response to the inquiry. Though he said that the Afaraukwu monarch was alive he, however, admitted that the monarch’s whereabouts are not known. He could not say where he was taking the rest.

He also reaffirmed the position of the traditional rulers over their colleague. “We don’t dabble in the problem of the son, but only about our colleague. Our traditional ruler is dear to us, whatever the son is doing with the Federal Government is not our concern. His son is a man and should be held responsible for his actions.” But Eze Ajomiwe said that the last time he spoke with Eze Kanu was the day of the invasion.

“The last time I spoke with Eze I. O Kanu was on the day of the invasion. I spoke with him earlier that day to discuss the decision of the traditional rulers who sent me to invite him to a meeting.” According to Eze Ajomiwe, he was sent by the chairman of the Abia and South East Council of Traditional Rulers as the chairman of the Umuahia North Council of traditional rulers under which Eze Kanu operates, to Eze Kanu for a meeting with the governor and the Commanding Officer of Ohafia Brigade. “When I spoke with him he said he was ready to abide by the position of the traditional rulers. Unfortunately, before the day of the meeting the army struck and since then I have neither heard from him nor spoken to him.”

He confirmed that a number of people were killed during the invasion but could not say whether the monarch, his wife and son were among the dead. He said he reported to the traditional rulers his discussion with Eze Kanu and his response on the day of their meeting but that was after the army had gone to destroy the place.

Eze Ajomiwe said that all the efforts made as Eze Kanu’s colleagues in Umuahia North Council as to his whereabouts and health had not yielded the desired result even as the army has refused to say anything. “As I am speaking to you I don’t know where he is. We have appealed to the army to tell us. If he is in their custody they should let us know, if he is dead they should release his corpse to us. It’s only in Nigeria this kind of thing can happen. I lived in the French capital for 15 years, you hardly see the army on the streets as you have in Nigeria. It’s only in Nigeria that somebody can be sent to do what is against the law. How can the army send me to Eze Kanu only to invade his palace before the day of the proposed meeting? Why did they send me if they knew they would invade the palace? A traditional ruler of my reputation and honour.”

Eze Ajomiwe said Nigeria needs prayer of deliverance just like the Esther in the Bible fasted and prayed against the destruction of Mordecai and the Jews by Herman. He said the army should be held responsible for the health and whereabouts of the traditional ruler. “Nigeria is in a dilemma; Nigeria needs prayer of deliverance,” he said.

The Umuahia North traditional rulers’ council chairman expressed disappointment with the turn of events. “Now look at what they are doing to Eyinnaya Abaribe, (who stood as one of the sureties for the IPOB leader), asking him to produce Nnamdi Kanu. What kind of country is this? They knew that Kanu would come to court and they would do to him what they wanted yet they invaded the palace and turned around to ask Abaribe to produce him, this is unthinkable.” On the efforts being made to know the condition of their colleague, Eze Ajomiwe said: “As traditional rulers, we can’t fight the army. We don’t have AK 47, but we have appealed and are still appealing to them to tell us the whereabouts of Eze Kanu.

They are in the position to know.” Eze Eddy Ibeabuchi, the traditional ruler of Okwulaga Afaraukwu and the immediate past chairman of Umuahia North Council of traditional rulers, Eze Kanu’s neighbour, corroborated Eze Ajomiwe’s position. He said efforts made so far to know the whereabouts and health status of the traditional ruler had not yielded a positive result. He disclosed that the efforts made so far by the people of Afaraukwu over the monarch’s health and whereabouts have failed but they have not given up. Also, like Eze Dick, Eze Ibeabuchi could not find any connection between the disappearance of the traditional ruler and the activities of the group which his son led.

“We are making effort, we have written an open letter and communique to Mr President, written and published by Afaraukwu concerned citizens and I know I signed that communique. And we don’t really know where our king is and we don’t know what the Federal Government is doing because we know Nnamdi Kanu is our son. I was watching him when he was carrying on with IPOB and I never saw him one day with arms. Generally, the constitution allows people to express their feelings and that was what I saw Nnamdi Kanu doing.”

“The way the Federal Government handled the matter, as far as I am concerned, was not quite good. Moreover, he was on bail, if the Federal Government wanted to do anything they would have allowed him to come to the court, probably, they had one reason or the other not to grant him bail, not to come and kill so many people in that place. They killed so many people there. I know. I went to that compound after the episode and I saw where so many people were killed and you cannot say where the corpses are today.”

Eze Ibeabuchi said: “As for the state of his health, we don’t know. I don’t know, if I know I will tell you. The question should be asked from the army that invaded that place, they should tell us the whereabouts of that man. If the man is hiding, I don’t know, I have not seen him since that time. We have written an open letter to the president which was published by so many newspapers requesting to know the whereabouts of Kanu himself and the father and mother. We don’t know their whereabouts.” He lamented that there had been “no response from any quarters till today.” “We have not given up, we are consulting. We want to approach the state governor because that’s the chief security officer here.

We are making effort to approach him, I don’t want to pre-empt the outcome though we have booked an appointment with him several times; probably he has been very busy. He has not granted us the appointment, so we are still waiting. I know if we meet him, definitely that’s one of the things we are going to confront him with, he should tell us.” Eze Ajomiwe added that he as the chairman of Umuahia North Council of traditional rulers, comprising traditional rulers from Ibeku and Ohuhu clans, he led them to the palace of Eze Kanu after the invasion to demand his release from the army either dead or alive. “The media even helped us to publish the demands contained in the communique.”  (New Telegraph)

Biafra: FG Worried As ICC Steps Up Investigations Against Nigeria |RN

              Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami

Ade Adesomoju, Abuja

The Federal Government is worried that the International Criminal Court is unrelenting in pursuing eight cases against Nigeria, says the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubabakar Malami (SAN).

He said this on Thursday while playing host to the newly elected President of the ICC, Prof. Chile Osuji, at his office in Abuja.

Malami said the ICC had “escalated” eight potential cases against Nigeria from “the initial preliminary examination to a preliminary investigation”.

Six of the cases were said to be against Boko Haram and two against the military.

He said the stepping up of the investigation against Nigeria was worrisome because the government had demonstrated its willingness and ability to arrest, investigate and prosecute anyone that committed any offence that fell within the Rome Statute of the ICC.

Malami said, “Presently, the ICC has escalated the eight potential cases against Nigeria – six against the Boko Haram and two against the military – from the initial preliminary examination to the preliminary investigation.

“This is worrisome, as Nigeria has demonstrated beyond doubt, and in absolute cooperation with the ICC, that it is willing and able and, as a matter of fact, it is indeed arresting, investigating and prosecuting anyone that commits an offence that falls within the Rome Statute of the ICC.

“The above being the case, Nigeria views the escalation of the eight potential cases as uncalled for in the circumstance.”

He assured the ICC president that Nigeria is “a country that believes in the operation of the rule of law, fundamental freedom and the need to fight impunity in all ramifications” the escalation of the eight potential cases “would not deter us from further expressing and demonstrating support to the ICC.”

Responding, Osuji commended Nigeria for its support to the ICC and assured that the court would continue to work against injustice and abuse of powers in its area of jurisdiction.

The ICC President described as inaccurate and erroneous the impression that Article 27 of the Rome Statute that prohibits immunity being extended to any head of state or senior government officials was targeted at African leaders.

He said the provision and the reason for that portion of the Rome Statute predated independence of African states.  (Punch)

Danjuma’s Self-defence Speech Has Vindicated Kanu, Says IPOB |RN

 

NnamdiKanu1

IPOB Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu

 

Aloysius Attah, Onitsha

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Wednesday, said the recent statement credited to General Theophilus .Y. Danjuma, where he accused the army of collusion with some bandits on ethnic cleansing mission in Nigeria, was a vindication and confirmation of all the prophetic statements earlier made by the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

The IPOB, in a statement signed by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, said Nigerians and Africa at large, needed to celebrate Kanu because it has become  categorically clear to all that all his prophetic statements had come to pass in  three years despite the fact that he is still in the custody of Nigerian Army after the invasion of his hometown and compound in Afaraukwu Ibeku Umuahia Abia State on September 14 last year.

Recalling Kanu’s statements in the past, Powerful noted that Kanu said it that  prior to the 2015 election , the incumbent president today while campaigning  was not coming  to grow the economy, en­throne justice, breed unity and tol­erance and love for one another but   rather coming to enthrone Hausa/Fulani supremacy, to reposi­tion the security agencies by sacking all competent hands and replacing  them with their kinsmen in order to drive their ethnic domination of the Southern Nigeria.

He recalled that Kanu said that the Fulani herdsmen will be armed and encouraged to slaughter people with impunity while their masters will protect them. “They are coming to ensure that my people are enslaved.  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 the pretence of creating grazing fields for the Fulani. Then the con­quest will be complete and we will be­come their serfs forever. This is the word of a prophet,” he noted.

IPOB described it as unfortunate that the APC Government led by Major General Muhammad Buhari arrested and jailed Kanu for two years without trial and later kidnapped him and kept him without traces since 14th September 2017 because he saw ahead and spoke out without fear or favour.

“He was hunted like an antelope for standing firm on the way to the truth that led and moved the Nigerian Authority and her security operatives including those unscrupulous politicians in Abuja planned to kidnapped him since last year without well-meaning Nigerians asking questions for his whereabouts because he looked the cabals and jihadists in the eyes and called them what they are.

“He was betrayed because he looked his brothers who have become slaves of the Hausa Fulani Caliphate in the eyes and told them they were nothing but slaves.

“He was hated by a few who are suffering from an identity crisis because he tried to liberate them from mental slavery which the cowards parading themselves as leaders and elders could not help to them but cheer the desecration of his father’s palace because they don’t even know where to start,” the statement noted.  (The Sun)
