Our Members Have Orders To Attack Igbo Governors Abroad, Says IPOB |The Republican News

The Indigenous People of Biafra has ordered its members in 100 countries across the world to attack the governors of Ebonyi, Enugu, Abia and Anambra states if they are seen in any of the countries.

The group also put on notice Ndigbo leaders such as the President-General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, who it accused of supporting the Operation Python Dance in the South-East.

Operation Python Dance was launched by the Nigerian Army in the South-East in 2016 in the wake of protests by IPOB members who were demanding secession from the country.

The group had cited historical events such as the victory of President Donald Trump in the 2016 United States elections and Brexit as proof of international support for self-determination.

During the Operation Python Dance, the army raided Umuahia, Abia State, the home town of the leader of the secessionist group, Nnamdi Kanu, whose whereabouts have been unknown since then.

Ultimately, the Federal Government designated IPOB as a terrorist organisation on September 18, 2017, under the Terrorism (Prevention) Act 2013.

Speaking to one of our correspondents on Saturday, IPOB spokesperson, Mr Emma Powerful, noted that South-East governors and some Ndigbo leaders had been marked as enemies to be attacked if they were seen in any of the 100 countries their members were residing.

He said the directive was given by Kanu and that in obedience to the IPOB leader’s order, its members were the ones who attacked a former Deputy Senate President, Dr Ike Ekweremadu, in Nuremberg, Germany on Saturday.

Powerful said the lawmaker was “disgraced by the IPOB Nuremberg Family as an Operation Python Dance instigator.”

The IPOB spokesman described Ekweremadu as a “traitor,” accusing him of being among those that got the pro-Biafra group proscribed, alongside the South-East governors.

Powerful vowed that IPOB would take similar action against the South-East governors and Ndigbo leaders, if they dared to attend any public event abroad.

He said, “Today (Saturday), the Nuremberg IPOB family in Germany, in keeping with the long-standing directive from our leader to hound all instigators of the Operation Python Dance, is glad to report that Ike Ekweremadu was confronted and duly hounded out of a so-called New Yam Festival event in Germany.

“Despite repeated warnings to the organisers of this jamboree that Enugu, Ebonyi and other parts of ‘Biafraland’ is under siege by the Fulani caliphate and their collaborators within, they went ahead to invite a known traitor, co-conspirator and one of those who worked with Igbo governors to proscribe and tag IPOB a terror organisation while they never raised any voice against the murderous Fulani herdsmen.

“This should serve as a warning to Nnia Nwodo, Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Willie Obiano and others that any day we find them in a public event abroad, they will be humiliated. IPOB is strategically located in over 100 countries around the world. Anywhere we find them, they will be dealt with.”

How Ekweremadu was attacked with stones, yam

In apparent obedience to the IPOB’s directive to its members, there was commotion on Saturday when Ekweremadu was attacked in Nuremberg, Germany.

The lawmaker, who has served in the Senate since 2003, was seen being pelted with stones, yam, sticks and water packs in short video clips which had gone viral on the social media.

Decked in isiagu, a pullover shirt worn by the Igbo people on special occasions, Ekweremadu was said to have been attacked at Löwensaal am Tier Garten, Nuremberg, venue for the annual New Yam Festival of the Igbo.

The New Yam Festival holds at the end of the rainy season in August and symbolises the conclusion of the harvest and the beginning of a new planting season.

The age-long festival is celebrated across Nigeria and the world wherever the Igbo people live.

While attending the event at Nuremberg, Ekweremadu was seen being attacked by a mob who tore his cloth and dragged him out of the event.

In the video clips, the angry mob was seen preventing the lawmaker from escaping, but he was later whisked away in a Mercedes-Benz car, even as the mob continued to beat him.

As the scene played out, some onlookers, dressed in traditional Igbo attire, were heard condemning the assault meted to the former deputy senate president.

One of the onlookers was heard saying, “This is wicked; why now? It’s not good.”

Despite the commotion, the event went on as planned, according to the Nigerian Ambassador to Germany, Yusuf Tuggar.

In a tweet via his handle @YusufTuggar on Saturday, the diplomat who was at the event wrote, “The Nuremberg yam festival organised by the Ndigbo Germany still took place and I was in attendance. There is no stopping Nigeria. It opened with the Nigerian and German anthems and I addressed the crowd.”

My ordeal in the hands of Biafra activists –Ex-DSP

Confirming the incident on Saturday, Ekweremadu, in a statement by his media aide, Uche Anichukwu, described it as unfortunate. He, however, said he was safe.

He said he was invited to the Second Annual Cultural Festival and Convention organised by the Ndigbo Germany in Nuremberg and billed to give a keynote address alongside the President-General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, who, however, could not make it.

The lawmaker said he was welcomed by the Ndigbo in Germany and everything went smoothly until some men, who identified themselves as IPOB members, stormed the venue.

He said, “They began to complain about the killings in the South-East, stressing that there would be no Igbo event at the venue.

“I tried to engage them, but when they became unruly, I had to leave the venue.

“The organisers also invited the police and I was accompanied out of the venue.

“I am disappointed with their (IPOB members’) conduct, especially as I am one of the persons who have spoken up on justice for the Ndigbo and against the judicial killings in Igboland and elsewhere.”

Ekweremadu said he had defended IPOB on the floor of the Senate, with the Presidency and the media.

He said, “I had as well rallied the South-East Senate Caucus to secure Nnamdi Kanu’s release with Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, taking him on bail to douse tension in the South-East.

“I nevertheless do not hold this to the heart against them, for they know not what they did.

“I have received thousands of solidarity calls and messages from well-meaning Ndigbo. I want to assure them that I am hale and hearty.”

In the meantime, investigations by one of our correspondents showed that Kanu visited Nuremberg recently to protest against holding the New Yam Festival because of the killings in Igboland.

It was also gathered that the IPOB members who attacked Ekweremadu on Saturday actually targeted Nwodo.

They reportedly descended on Ekweremadu when it was obvious that their main ‘target’ was conspicuously absent.

Following the attack on Ekweremadu, the Federal Government has condemned the IPOB members’ action.

The Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, in a statement on Saturday described the incident as an embarrassment to the country.

She stated that some of the culprits who perpetrated the act had been apprehended and called on the German government and law enforcement agencies to ensure they faced the consequences of their actions.

She said, “It is also shamefully pathetic that an event which was nobly put together by the Ndigbo community in Germany, whose members make up the majority of Nigerians living in Germany, to amongst other things, provide a forum for the Diaspora and various stakeholders to network and facilitate a better cooperation between German and Nigerian businesses, ended up in such a disgraceful manner.”

Dabiri-Erewa appealed to Nigerians to be of good behaviour wherever they found themselves “because such incidents tarnish the image of the country.”

Also condemning the attack, the Executive Chairman, Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership, Mr Debo Adeniran, condemned IPOB’s action, saying it was an act of brigandage.

He said, “These people ought not to have gone to such place to display brigandage because IPOB has been banned in Nigeria.

“However, our leaders should take heed because that is an example of what will happen, granted that it was a different ball game. They might have reacted that way because they possibly perceived that Ekweremadu had not been with them in terms of support.

“Be that as it may, the action of the IPOB members was highly condemnable in faraway Germany where the image of the country should have been jealously guided.”

Also describing the attack as barbaric, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo accused Kanu of sponsoring “miscreants” to trample on Ekweremadu’s fundamental human rights.

Nwodo told SUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday that Kanu’s action reflected his disregard for the former deputy senate president, who was instrumental in securing the release of the IPOB leader.

Nwodo said, “In every 12, there is a Judas. Senator Ekweremadu and I were supposed to be in Germany but because my visa was not out, Senator Ekweremadu went on our behalf.

“The attack on him was unruly, uncivilised, a vitiation of his fundamental human rights and a sad story of where we are. I’m shocked that any true Igbo man could do this to Senator Ekweremadu.

“Without Senator Ekweremadu, Nnamdi Kanu would not have got bail. He (Ekweremadu) was the one who networked with senators who went ahead to sign on his (Kanu) behalf.”

Nwodo called on the German government to take appropriate actions against the perpetrators.

“I condemn it in its entirety. I think it is disrespectful, discourteous; I think it is a fundamental dent on our solidarity. I think that those who did it are not worthy to be called Igbo,” he said.

A former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume, also condemned the attack on Ekweremadu.

Speaking to one of our correspondents on Saturday, he said the IPOB members attacked one of the “greatest heroes” in Nigeria.

“Ekweremadu is not the person they ought to attack and indeed they have to stop such attack on anybody for that matter,” Ndume said.

Assaulting us abroad not solution to agitation – S’East govs

Meanwhile, the South-East Governors Forum on Saturday said the IPOB order directing its members to attack them anywhere abroad would not solve the problem of their agitation for Biafra.

The chairman of the forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Emma Uzo, said that the governors had no problem with the members of the outlawed group to warrant such an order, adding that the insecurity in the South-East was a nationwide challenge which was squarely under the Federal Government’s command and control.

Condemning the attack on Ekweremadu, Umahi said, “If there is any issue IPOB holds against the governors, they should come home to settle it in Igboland instead of a foreign land.

“What happened was a security issue which was within the purview of the Federal Government. Attacking governors in a foreign land is a wild goose chase. We love them because they are our children.

“IPOB cannot achieve Biafra alone, except with the collaboration of all stakeholders including the governors. They don’t need to attack the governors to achieve Biafra.”

The governors’ forum warned the members of the proscribed body not to allow political opportunists to use them to destroy the South-East.

“They should come together and work with the governors and the Ohanaeze Ndigbo to achieve the Igbo Presidency come 2023 instead of fighting the governors. We want them to be close to us instead of taking the struggle to the international arena,” it said.

Furthermore, Umahi’s aide described the IPOB’s threats as empty, saying the group lacked the powers to track down any South-East governor anywhere in the world.

“They have no such spread and powers to track down South-East governors for attack anywhere in the world. They are too small. I don’t want to say they sound so cowardly, but they can’t see the governors to attack,” he added.

Buhari’s Government Continues With Clampdown On IPOB: Police Arrest 15 Biafrans In Ebonyi State

IPOB: Biafrans march in Ebonyi state

At least 15 people said to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have been arrested by the Nigeria Police Force in Amasiri, Afikpo North local government area of Ebonyi State.

A spokesperson for the police in Ebonyi, Loveth Odah, the 15 were arrested at their convention ground in Amasiri.

According to the police, the arrest was made after receiving a report that some secessionist groups planned to hold a two-day convention in the state.

“The Ebonyi State police command in active collaboration with other security agencies in the state, while acting on credible intelligence report that IPOB/MASSOB/BIM members will have their 2019 convention in the state, on 13 and 14 August 2019, embarked on a massive ‘show of force’ covering the entire length and breadth of the state with particular focus on identified flashpoints.

“The exercise dominated the entire state and frustrated the activities of IPOB/MASSOB/BIM members thereby denying them the opportunity to hold their meeting in the pre-arranged venue.

“They were, however, traced to a hideout in the bush around Amasiri, Afikpo North L.G.A of the state where 15 members led by one Rev. Ogbonna Nnachi, ‘M’, about 70 years of age were arrested.

“Items recovered from them include Biafra currency (two pounds), branded Biafra T-shirts etc.

Nnamdi Kanu’s Diplomatic Moves Will Soon Bear Fruit Of Freedom To Biafra —IPOB

Nnamdi Kanu with members of the Jewish Synagogue during his recent visit to Germany

By Donatus Anichukwueze
The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is confident recent diplomatic moves by its leader Nnamdi Kanu will soon bring actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra.

In a statement on Tuesday by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the proscribed IPOB declared with full confidence that Biafra restoration was gathering momentum with the recent visit of its leader to Germany.

The group said, “the diplomatic moves to restore Biafra sovereignty and freedom by our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu are currently gathering momentum across the whole world.”

“The recent diplomatic move by IPOB leader in Germany yesterday is another sign that Biafra restoration is a divine project and will in no distant time be a reality.

“Our Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been making serious moves to restore Biafra in our life time which most enemies of Biafra do not know.”

Concise News had earlier reported that Kanu was in Germany for the IPOB town hall meeting held in the city of Munich on Saturday.

However, Kanu on Twitter said, “My appreciation to a very gracious host, dear brothers and friends of Biafra, the Chief Rabbi of Munich and Greater Bayern Shmeuel Brodmann, for a wonderful dinner and amazing evening with the family, God bless Biafra, God bless Israel.” PM

I Will Kill Nnamdi Kanu And This Is Why— Asari Dokubo |The Republican News

Former Niger Delta Militant leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo

A former Niger Delta militant leader, sari Dokubo has threatened to kill the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

The Republican News learnt according to Daily Post, Dokubo said that the struggle for the actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra has been compromised by the IPOB leader.

In a video he shared on Facebook on Wednesday morning, he wondered why Kanu is running instead of facing the Nigerian Government squarely. He also blasted Kanu for alleged killing Prophet Anthony Nwoko, insisting he has not killed anyone before, even as a Muslim.

He said, “Our fellow Biafrans, in this period of darkness, a few people have decided to thrash our struggle in the blood of our own people.

So that they will become Supreme leaders, saviours and messiahs.

We didn’t see the red flag, the signals were always there but some people saw it before us.

“But because we believed that Biafra must be achieved with any means possible, we did not see these dangerous signals early enough.”

Asari, still talking about the assassination of Biafra Prophet, Nwoko, said it was wrong for the Biafran struggle to be turned into bloodshed. He warned that he would not hesitate to kill Nnamdi Kanu if he dares him, saying, “I’ll smoke you out. I’m not boasting.

“I’ ll smoke you out from every hole, every corner. They know me. “If one idiot threatens to attack me and makes good his words to attack me, I’ll kill him.

BREAKING: Nnamdi Kanu Responds To Asari Dokubo, Clears The Air Over Allegations |The Republican News

This is one of the most matured responses from any leader of a group seeking for freedom to his fellow citizen in a struggle.

Recently, there has been a lot brouhaha on the social media about videos and words emanating from the ex-Niger Delta Militant leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo.

In this direct response, IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu addresses Asari Dokubo, citing that leaving some if his allegations are allowed to linger may go haywire.

Below is the response from him:

Fellow Biafrans!

Greetings to you all!!

My appreciation to all those who are still in the struggle to restore the lost sovereignty of the Biafran people as a result of British imperial ambition of which Nigeria is one of her disastrous creations.

Let me start by asking everyone to observe a minute silence for all those who died to protect and restore the sovereignty of the Biafran people from the British & Fulani colonial ambition.

Although silence is golden but there are times it is necessary to talk before things go haywire.

Of recent, our dear compatriot Alhaji Asari Dokunbo whom we know had made his own contributions to the restoration of the sovereignty of the Biafran people had raised issues worth addressing and in order to avoid an unnecessary distraction and to keep the struggle focused on the goals we set out to accomplish, I thought it wise to address the issues raised .

The issues raised by our dear compatriot are

1) I ordered the murder of a cleric.

2) I collected money from Atiku.

3) Master – Slave relationship between diverse Biafran ethnic groups.

4) That I am a scam and fraud in the Biafran struggle.

I will take my time to address each point one after the other and later, indulge our dear comrade to reveal to fellow Biafrans what he thinks should be done differently in order to achieve Biafra’s restoration.

1) I never ordered the killing of any cleric and if anyone thinks I did, he or she should provide evidence that, I wasted Biafran resources to kill a fellow Biafran whose death can not help IPOB to restore Biafra.

2) I never collected money from Atiku and if anyone is in doubt, let him or her approach Atiku for answers. Both PDP and APC agents approached me and told me to give up the struggle for Biafra and I told them that, IPOB will only do so if the following things will be fulfilled:

a) Full Resource Control and not mere 13% derivation.

b) Opening of at least 2 deep seaports in Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Rivers, Bayelsa and Delta States starting with the construction of Ibaka, Ibeno and Bakassi deep seaports.

c) The establishment of international airports and inland ports in all states of the defunct Eastern and Mid West regions in order to emancipate Biafra land from economic strangulation.

d) Full implementation of PIB (Petroleum Industry Bill).

e) Full autonomy to all Biafran states in the areas of security, taxes, royalties, legislations etc

f) Lots more.

We lifted the boycott of election because, both parties agreed to our terms & conditions.

If we are wrong to give the Nigerian elites the opportunity to fail themselves, let the Biafrans voice out.

3) It is very disheartening that such a great compatriot like Alhaji Asari Dokunbo will descend so low to call one of the Ethnic groups of Biafra land slaves and another masters.

Throughout the history of the Biafran people, never was it recorded that any ethnic group invaded others and enslaved them.

The Igbos being the largest of them, were neither subjugated nor subjugated other people.

Yes it is true that, lots of Igbos were sold as slaves but it was done by fellow Igbos notably the Arochukwu slave traders through the coastal nations who acted as middle men of which Ijaws were one of them.

Alhaji Asari Dokunbo can enlighten the Igbos which Ijaw King or War Canoe Chief left the creeks in order to conquer and enslave the Igbos in the hinterlands of Biafra land.

The Biafra we seek to restore is still the same that encouraged the peaceful coexistence of all ethnic nations which led to the creations of multi-ethnic-cultural communities notably Arochukwu, Abiriba, Igbanke,etc.

If Alhaji Asari Dokunbo wants a Biafra of Master – Slave relationship, then he is free to create one but we won’t be partners in such a project.

The Biafra we seek, is one based on equal rights & privileges and not on Master – Slave relationships.

4) Alhaji Asari Dokunbo, you said I am a scam and fraud. I will be grateful if you can provide evidence of me diverting the contributions of fellow Biafrans for my personal use.

Remember that, only a stupid fraudster will dare confront Jubril.

May Elohim be the judge if I am a fraudster and should expose & replace me if I am guilty in His sight.

Alhaji Asari Dokunbo, we have come so far and we should not allow our oppressors to continue to divide and conquer our oppressed people.

If You Think My Style Of Struggle & Leadership Will Not Get Us Biafra, Kindly Tell Fellow Biafrans The Way Forward So That, They Can Join Your Rank and File With My Full Support & Blessings.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu

Nnamdi Kanu Is Living Up To His Threat Of Destroying Nigeria With Truth – Charles Alabi |RN

 

Nnamdi kanu is living up to his threat of destroying Nigeria with the truth. His exposé is what Federal Government now uses against Atiku. To crown it all, Kanu has suddenly turned out to be an adviser to the both Atiku and Buhari. Today he tells FG to give him credit for exposing Atiku. Tomorrow Kanu would ask Atiku to tell Buhari to undergo a DNA test if he insists he is the real Buhari.

Now, nobody talks about Atiku’s mandate. Even the judiciary has suddenly deviated from the facts of the electoral matter between them. Atiku’s handlers struggles and are now only interested in proving to the Court that Atiku is a true Nigerian.

On the other hand, all the presidency cares about is proving that Atiku belongs to Cameroon. Trust their desperation. They have gone as far as bribing a kangaroo group in Cameroon who are now asking Atiku to return home (Cameroon). The presidency also went as far as originating another kangaroo group who are urging Atiku to apologize to Nigerians and quietly return home.

Atiku has been left with no other choice than to fire back. He spoke with newsmen the other day and made it open that the man at the Aso Rock is not Buhari. He accompanied his hyperbolic claim with a threat of heading to the Courts to prove, with his team of lawyers, that the man at Aso Rock hails from Sudan. He openly told the World that it was extensive surgeries undergone by the Sudanese that made him take a Buhari resemblance. He also stated that the said Sudanese who parades himself as Nigerian President was heavily tutored on Buhari’s attitudinal displays after the surgery.

All thanks to the mocking bird, also known as Nnamdi Kanu.

As the polity has been greatly heated up , resulting from all these skirmishes capable of destroying Nigeria , KANU came up again with the issue of a DNA test. On his usual Biafra Radio, he insisted and stood his ground as he challenged Presidency to conduct a DNA test on the President , in a bid to prove to the World that he , Nnamdi KANU lied about Buhari’s purported Demise.

Now, Atiku’s camp has bought the idea. They are now insisting that if Atiku must return to Cameroon, that a DNA test must first be conducted on the President.

To this development, Abbah Kyarri, Buhari’s Chief of Staff swore by his ancestors, that Nigeria should rather disintegrate into Parts, instead of a DNA test to be conducted on Buhari.

Nnamdi Kanu is gradually living up to his threat of destroying Nigeria without firing a shot. He has succeeded in setting these people against themselves. With all these exposé, nobody can exactly predict where the Nigerian state is heading to.

Again, all thanks to Nnamdi Kanu. Let’s hope and pray that the worst should be averted.

‘I’ll Drop Agitation For Biafra If DNA Test Confirms Aso Rock Occupant Is Buhari’ —Nnamdi Kanu

The IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu tells Atiku what to do to prove case against Buhari.

As the controversy over the indigenship of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar rages on, the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has vowed to drop the agitation for Biafra restoration should the occupant of Aso Rock submit self to DNA test, and the result proves that he is “Buhari”.

Kanu who threw the challenge during his latest live broadcast on Radio Biafra Sunday night, also advised Atiku to demand that Buhari should submit himself for DNA test to prove his originality.

The IPOB leader volunteered to offer free legal advice to Atiku and to provide him with more facts on the “mystery” surrounding the occupant of Aso Rock.

His words :”It will be very foolish of PDP not to challenge this brazen insult against Atiku by insisting on a DNA test for Jubril. Should Jubril submit himself to a DNA test and confirms he is Buhari, I will drop the agitation for Biafra. That is how certain I am.”

Speaking further, Kanu argued that for the All Progressive Congress, APC, to assert that Atiku was not a Nigerian citizen based on his (Kanu’s) earlier revelation on Radio Biafra meant that even APC had accepted his narratives.

He said :”The headline ‘Atiku Is Not A Nigerian, APC Tells Tribunal’, is a vindication that everything I say on Radio Biafra is the truth. It may appear outlandish and unbelievable at first, but eventually history always vindicate me. It is now over the Atiku’s team to unleash what they have against Jubril.

“I will offer free legal advice to Atiku live on air in the hope that they will use it because it is obvious Atiku won the election and APC are deploying all instruments of coercion at the disposal of the Nigerian state to deny him his mandate.

” Between Atiku and the man occupying Aso Rock, only Atiku is a Nigerian, the other is Sudanese.

“Buhari died in 2017 and should not be contesting any election in 2019. There was a gentleman’s agreement amongst Fulani cabals of which Atiku is privy to, that the death of Buhari should not be made public lest IPOB take full advantage of it to break Biafra away from Nigeria.

” Atiku played along believing that Jubril and APC won’t put up much resistance when it comes to presidential elections. He was wrong. The cabals have now refused to give up power. Jubril is their poster boy.

” APC is counting on the fact that Atiku won’t fight dirty in public because that means authenticating the claims of IPOB and confirming what world leaders already know, that Buhari is dead. The only people who have refused to believe it are Nigerians.

“The only option left for Atiku is to remind the tribunal that he is an authentic Nigerian citizen whereas Jubril is not. No part of Sudan ever joined Nigeria as a result of referendum, at least not yet.

“Atiku should demand for a DNA test result to ascertain if Jubril is Buhari or not. Once he lays this card on the table, the cabal will have no choice than to return his stolen mandate.
“Out of the two contestants, one is a Nigerian by choice not birth but the other is neither a Nigeria by birth nor by choice.

“Atiku became a Nigerian by referendum at the age of 15 but Jubril in his mid 50’s is not a Nigerian, does not hold Nigerian citizenship and is from Sudan.

“What Kyari and his gang have done is worse than a military coup. Their role in inflicting hardship on long suffering people of Nigeria and by extension, Biafrans, is unpardonable.
“They should be tried for high crimes and misdemeanours. They are supposed to be stoned according to Sharia Law.
“Another issue which Atiku’s legal team should home in on is the issue of WAEC certificate. Like a place of birth, WAEC certificate is a cardinal requirement as stipulated in the constitution.
“The headline “INEC says they are satisfied with Buhari’s certificate” is utter nonsense because INEC is not an examination body. The only authority capable of authenticating Jubril/Buhari’s certificate is WAEC and they are still in existence.
“Is INEC WAEC? The answer is a capital NO. Only WAEC can respond to the issue of WAEC result not INEC.
“The examination body is there, still existing. If PDP bigwigs have any brain, they will subpoena WAEC boss to testify under oath.
“That will send Jubril sculling back to Khartoum Sudan. But PDP leaders are cowards without the spine to fight a tyrannical impostor. To finish APC is easy but PDP lacks the balls.
“Should WAEC boss lie under oath, he or she will be tried for perjury. This is elementary law. Should they forge a result on a paper that has been aged artificially, there is carbon dating technology that will tell us when the paper was made.
“This is a fool proof process. Buhari before his death had no certificate, Jubril has no certificate and the section 131 (4) of the Nigerian constitution is quite explicit on this, no WAEC certificate no presidency. What is Atiku and his team waiting for?
“The issue of WAEC result can be dealt with now at this tribunal, not in a Nigerian court of law with an APC corrupt judge. If they won’t allow WAEC boss to be called as a witness, get a sworn testimony under oath and Jubril will be a goner.
” Kyari and his cohorts who brought in Jubril to replace Buhari failed to reckon with the fact that no two individuals, even so-called identical twins, are exactly the same in every way. “

BY MAKANJUOLA ADIGUN MUHAMMED

 

The current state of the Biafran struggle for self-determination has transcended the level the Nigeria political power brokers can contend with. The case has snowballed into an international matter which is capable of questioning the future of the Nigerian state and its sovereignty. The on-going case between the federal Government of Nigeria versus Nnamdi Kanu over the trumped up allegation that the latter committed treasonable felony, for which he and the four others were arraigned at the federal high court of the federal Republic of Nigeria, and later alleged to have jumped bail has taken a new dimension. But as it was widely reported in the Nigerian media and from principal witnesses and the lawyer of the foremost Biafran leader that the security of the state with all state security and war apparatus invading the house of the IPOB leader at Afararukwu in Abia state with the intention to eliminate him and in the process State violence was visited on the entire community where lives were massively lost and the state of the safety of the IPOB leader and his whereabouts was unknown after the military operation. Subsequently after the above scenario, the court reconvened to continue with the trials only for the case to get twisted when the court insisted that the IPOB leader must appear in court to face trial over the case brought against him by the prosecutor which in this case is the Federal Government of Nigeria. The argument for and against over why the IPOB leader who later appeared in Israel and have been making series of broadcasting statements on Radio on the events surrounding how the state, some Igbo leaders, conspired with the bench to get him eliminated while he is still under the protective bail of the court of which he had vowed never to appear again to answer the allegation of treasonable felony placed on him by the Nigerian state and he continues to vehemently insist that he has committed no crime for which he could be accused let alone treasonable felony, as what he is agitating for, is the freedom of his people under the concept of self-determination and secession which is well embedded in the Nigerian constitution, extant laws which is the common laws and international conventions, treaties and conference resolutions. He made series of revelations concerning the Nigerian leadership and how and why he, could never get justice in a Nigerian court presided over by a Nigerian judge.
Following Nnamdi Kanu’s decision not to appear in court again, there has been series of court arguments in which at a point the court was contemplating forfeiting the bail bond of the sureties that stood in for his bail and there were counter opposition to this intending decision of the court that eventually made one of the sureties suing the judge of the court to another division of the court seeking for his right to be protected by his court. This action was followed by subsequent Binta Nyako’s court ruling to absolve the sureties of any wrong doings and decided to revoke the bail right granted the IPOB leader and issued a bench warrant arrest against anywhere the IPOB leader is sighted and be brought to court to face his trials. This above order of the court was made against all the entreaties by legal representations of the IPOB leader and the others to present the actual information concerning why their clients could no longer appear in court, every attempts by the defendants representatives to present these facts to the court of what the security operatives did which led to the disappearance of their client was rebuffed by the trial Judge.
The reaction of the above insistence of the court that the embattled IPOB Leader must face trial took a new twist when he declared in one of his radio broadcast on Radio Biafra, London that he is not a Nigerian and he is suing the Nigerian Government to a court in the British court challenging the decision of the Nigerian court to revoked his bail and many other reliefs that he may be demanding to advance the course of the Biafran struggle.

In his last broadcast on Radio Biafra, the Biafran leader exposed some section of the Nigerian laws predicated on some sections of the provision of 1999 Nigerian constitution and some existing laws that legalized his demand for a separate Biafran State out of Nigeria. He spoke so confidently about the justiciability of these laws as they are written in black and white which formed parts of the common laws of the federation of Nigeria and no court in the country has any powers to assumed any jurisdiction concerning these sets laws when they are connected to process for demand for outright secession or struggle for self-determination for a separate homeland out of Nigeria, once the process do not contravene the process laid down in the criminal code of the federal Republic of Nigeria. The citation of some of these laws that he cited are;
1. That under the Shagari administration in 1983, there was a law passed by the National Assembly in Lagos during that political era titled “The Law of the Federation of Nigeria” which enable any Region or a people, who felt that they are political, economic and socio-cultural oppressed within Nigeria State, to be assisted by the government of the country to freely exit the Nigerian federation to seek for separate homeland where the above deprivation can be redressed.

  1. That there was a decree promulgated under the general Babangida administration titled “The Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 1990, cap 10” The above law re-consolidated the rights of secession and self-determination to any people and parts of Nigeria, which was initially asserted in the 1983 laws, can comfortable pullout of the Nigerian federation with the supports of the Nigerian State.
  2. That there was also consolidation of the above two laws that legalized the calls and struggle for secession and calls for self-determination under Nigerian common laws passed under the democratic administration of President Olusegun Obasanjo titled “The Law of the Federation of Nigeria” passed in 2004. This Act powered Nigeria to be a state party positively with all technical assistance to any region or peoples in Nigeria seriously advocating for exit out of the Nigerian federation. But from all indications, it could be assumed that it is the criminal class political elites, traditional rulers and business and corporate professionals along North and South divide who are the albatross and the stumbling block to the enforcement of these above laws to segments and groups who had long rejected the unworkable and fraudulent national unity that has brought deaths, genocide, ethnic cleansing, pains, under-development, poverty, massive uncontained corruption practices within the public and private sectors at all strata of the Nigerian society.

The Nnamdi case versus Federal Republic of Nigeria has been slated for a court in the United Kingdom on the 29th of April, 2019. Nigeria’s legal representation will be expected to make appearance at the hearing and trials of this historic case. Many paradox box and hidden secrets which were initially not made known to the Nigeria people will be uncovered under oath. And the legality for demanding for one separate country out of Nigeria will be tested. All Nigerian laws that supported the calls for self-determination in the country will be tested. All international treaties and conventions both at the international and at the regional level which Nigeria is a signatory to will be invoked. What amount to acts of treasonable felony within the context of the Nigeria criminal code system? Why the South and the North be run or criminal code versus penal code system if the country is truly a united federation and why the federation created by the British should not be urgently terminated? Why the amalgamation document of 1914, if such document existed, must be presented in the British court on the 29th of this month in the UK court and the legality of such document and its contents having any legal effect of the law binding consequences further on the remnants of the succeeding generations who are now the victims of such evil amalgamation? And whether the independence constitutions and the subsequent ones, are subjected to the popular endorsement of those who were referred to as Nigerians via a fallout of an outcomes of popular referendum.

All self-determination and separatists in Nigeria must developed vested interests in the case between Nnamdi Kanu and the federal Republic of Nigeria, later this month in the United Kingdom and be ready to take their stand over the fallout of the case in question. Our problems as a people started by the British in 1914, may also be finally be settled in the British court once and for all.

Biafra Will Be Restored Very Soon —Ex Niger Delta Militant

Ex-Niger Delta militants under the aegis of Niger Delta Ken Saro Wiwa Adaka Boro Biafra Freedom Fighters, have pleaded with the United Nations, UN, and the international community to compel the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Nigerian government to allow the people of Biafra go.

According to the ex-militants, the only way to stop the agitation for Biafra was to allow Ndigbo have their own country.

Chief Jasper Emmanuel, the leader of the group, made the call in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

He noted that the actualisation of Biafra Republic could not be suppressed or denied as everybody had right to freely express his mind on where to belong.

Emmanuel said, “all ex-agitators and militants must come together to support and agitate for the actualisation of Biafra Republic as that would give the Niger Delta region the tonic for rapid socio-economic development which had eluded the region for decades.

“We are seriously working with all necessary stakeholders and Biafra agitation groups within and outside the country to actualise the dream of the Biafra Republic where the people can be free in a country they can call their own.

“The actualisation of Biafra Republic will happen shortly as the people can no longer remain in a federation that is politically and economically favourable to only some sections, while other parts of the country that lay the golden egg live in abject poverty and under development.

“The battle for the actualisation of a sovereign state of Biafra must be fought and won on all fronts for the benefit of all as the political imbalance of Nigeria has thrown under development to some sections while political power had remained the exclusive preserve of a few ethnic and religious groups.” (DailyPost)
