May 30: Alaigbo Development Forum Backs IPOB, Others |The Republican News

…Seeks Ohanaeze, town unions’ endorsements

Magnus Eze, Enugu

 

TheAlaigbo Development Foundation (ADF) has backed the call by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and other pro-Biafra groups for the observance of May 30 as Biafra day of remembrance.

The body appealed to the apex Igbo organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the Association of South East Town Unions (ASETU), churches and other Igbo organisations to set aside the day as it would help in recreating and enhancing Igbo national consciousness and rebirth.

IPOB had last week, through a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, declared a sit-at-home on May 30, throughout Biafraland in remembrance of its fallen heroes and heroines, who paid the supreme price in the struggle for Biafra.

The group said it would also remember all victims of Fulani herdsmen’s attacks, Boko Haram violence and those that died at the hands of security agencies over the years that nobody remembered. 

A statement by ADF President, Prof. Uzodinma Nwala, Secretary, Prof. Nath Aniekwu and Public Relations Officer, Chief Abia Onyike, noted that the people of the South West, through persistence and with the support of their legislators would soon have a legislation recognising June 12, date of the annulment of the 1993 election, as Democracy Day.

“ADF is aware that several groups and individuals have annually been celebrating this auspicious day in our history as a remembrance day in one form or the other. Many religious groups and several pan-Igbo organisations, including pro-Biafra groups such as Ekwenche, MASSOB, IPOB, Coalition of Pro-Biafra Groups, etc, have been celebrating this for some years.

“ADF is of the view that we, as a people should collectively do this in remembrance and honour of millions of our brothers and sisters who died for our sake.

“We should also honour several nationalities and their governments, churches, humanitarian organisations and heroic individuals including those, who burnt themselves for the sake of our liberty, we should hold May 30 as a solemn day in our history.

“We do this also for the sake of our national consciousness, solidarity and to unite with all our neighbours who suffered with us and still believe in the unity and progress of our region.

“We shall formally address this appeal to all governments, churches, state Assemblies, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, clans, town unions and other bodies for endorsement of this call,” the group stated.  (The Sun)

‘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. “

Nnamdi Kanu Vindicated Over APC’s Claim That Atiku Is Not Nigerian —IPOB

By Chijioke Jannah

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has reacted to the claim by the All Progressives Congress, APC, that former vice-president Atiku Abubakar is not a Nigerian by birth.

IPOB said that the debate over Atiku’s citizenship only goes to confirm remarks made by its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as truth.

Recall that in the build-up to the 2019 presidential election, Kanu had alleged that Atiku is a Cameroonian.

However, in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, IPOB stated that political events in the near future will also confirm Kanu’s claim that President Muhammadu is dead and is currently being replaced by an impostor, Jubril Al-Sudani, a Sudanese.

The statement reads, “With the trend of ongoing events in Nigeria, it is now clear to all and sundry that any word uttered by our leader on Radio Biafra is the unquestionable truth backed up by irrefutable facts. Atiku’s nationality debate attests to this.

“Those who over the years derived joy in propagating the lies that Radio Biafra is about propaganda and hate speech are the ones today relying on it to get factual information on constitutional law in Nigeria. Senior Advocates of Nigeria now depend on Nnamdi Kanu to tutor them on constitutional law and the dysfunctional legal system of Nigeria.

“Those that referred to IPOB as miscreants are now the same people now quoting and referencing the speeches of our supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in their legal depositions.

“In the same vein and in due course, Nigerians will come to the inescapable realisation that Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari is dead and the impostor in Aso Rock is neither of Nigerian citizenship as Atiku nor birth, which both Jubril and Atiku are not.

“The Fulani Aso Rock cabal and their friends in mainstream media in Nigeria can seek to dismiss this fact all they like but in the end, the truth must surely prevail.

“Pretending that things are normal in Nigeria with the current level of injustice, poverty, pain, insecurity, hunger and oppression is a recipe for disaster.

“To drive home this message, our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will deliver a special address on Radio Biafra tonight April 14, 2019, at 7 PM Biafra Time (7 PM UK) for yet another expose on the fraud called Nigeria and further clarification on the thorny issue of Atiku’s nationality.”

Bench Warrant Means Nothing To Me, Mere Academic Exercise |The Republican News

Tony Okafor, Awka

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has described the bench warrant against him by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja, as “a mere academic exercise”.

He also said the Federal Government could not incite the world against him.

In a statement obtained by our correspondent in Awka, Anambra State, the IPOB leader said, “The international and diplomatic community would surely ignore the bench warrant.

“I remain eternally grateful to my sureties for standing by me all through my travails, trials and tribulations.

“It smacks of judicial persecution for Justice Binta Nyako handling my case to claim that my sureties had withdrawn their surety.

“Justice Binta Nyako’s bench warrant against me makes the judiciary complicit in the persecution of innocent people and IPOB since mid 2015.

“Where a case is for hearing of motion, the trial judge must hear the motion and adjourn for any other process. On no account should they hear a motion and hear the merits of the matter, not to talk about delivering judgment. The judge may consider doing that in the very rare circumstance of consent by parties

“When a matter has been adjourned for a particular purpose, it is my view that the business of the court on the day the matter is adjourned is the purpose for which it was adjourned.

“It is expected that parties have come prepared for that purpose for which the matter was adjourned. If it is expedient to change the purpose, it cannot be done by the court suo motu (on its own) as the parties must agree.”

He said in March last year a continental human rights court restrained the FG from persecuting of members of IPOB, regretting that the government had yet to obey the order.

Kanu said, “The arrest, detention and murder of IPOB family members is illegal, unconstitutional and in breach of the written laws of Nigeria. The fact that judges and supposed legal practitioners allow this travesty to continue is indicative of the level of ignorance that pervades the Nigerian judiciary.”

Kanu, who is facing trial alongside other IPOB members over alleged treason, has not appeared in court months after he was granted bail.

Justice Nyako revoked the bail granted Kanu in 2017and issued an arrest warrant against him, citing his continued absence from court.

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)

Tony Okafor, Awka

 

Members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra who allegedly attacked and burnt a police station in Ajali, Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State have been arrested.

Five of those arrested were paraded on Monday by the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Mustapha Dandaura at the command’s headquarters in Anambra.

He said the suspects were nabbed by the Command’s Special Anti-robbery Squad after “An aggressive manhunt of perpetrators”.

The CP said, “On February 15, 2018 at about 2:00a.m., hoodlums suspected to be IPOB members attacked Ajali Division, burnt down the station, three police patrol vehicles and other exhibits.

“The suspects equally carted away three AK 47 rifles from the division armoury and injured the Divisional Crime Officer who was on a visiting round.

He added, “Following the incident, the Command’s Special Anti robbery Squad embarked on aggressive manhunt of perpetrators and arrested five of the suspects”.

The CP gave the names of those arrested as Abuchi Nwogwu, 21, Okwudili Nwanne, 42, Maduabuchi Obi, 22, Chukwuedozie Orah, 30, and Ekechi Chukwuemeka, 30.

He said all of them hailed from Ndikelionwu in Orumba North LGA of the state.

Dandaura said upon interrogation, the suspects took police operatives to their hideout wherein one of the AK 47 rifles with breech number KO 358792 was recovered, adding that the suspects would be charged to court after investigation.

Also paraded was a 27-year-old murder suspect, Okechukwu Udensi earlier declared wanted by the police. A bounty of N1m had been placed on his head.

Udensi allegedly killed a trader last year, 38-year-old Ndubuisi Nwokolo on the Otumoye Street, Odoakpu in Onitsha.

Dandaura said, “Following the incident, the command launched aggressive manhunt for the fleeing perpetrators and declared the ring leader one Ikechukwu Udensi alias Ikenga aged 27 years of Azia town in Ihiala LGA of Anambra State wanted.

“Consequently, on March 31, 2019 at about 12:50 p.m., following painstaking intelligence and strategic planning, police operatives attached to the command operation Udoka and Special Anti-robbery Squad SARS raided a criminal hideout at Menax near down flyover in Onitsha and arrested the notorious suspect, Ikechukwu Udensi aka Ikenga.”

“Suspect is assisting the police with useful information that could help in arresting his accomplices in order to bring them to justice’, the CP stated.  (Punch)
