Fake IPOB Leader: Okwudili Doesn’t Exist Except On DSS Imagination, Gossip Columns – IPOB

NnamdiKanu

IPOB Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu

IPOB PRESS STATEMENT

Fake IPOB ‘leader’ Okwudili doesn’t exist, except on DSS imagination, computer hard drive and gossip columns

We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) view as laughable the latest attempt by the Nigerian secret police DSS to rescue one of their sinking Igbo slaves in the person of Okezie Ikpeazu by seeking to deflect attention with the concocted, faceless, non-existent ‘Okwudili’ they claim is heading a ‘faction’ of IPOB. Hausa-Fulani Arewa North and their slaves in Igboland, of which Okezie Ikpeazu and Nnia Nwodo are most prominent, even more than Rochas Okorocha, are misguided into thinking the great global IPOB family can be fooled by such kindergarten tactics of planting names in the public domain and claiming the person is IPOB leader.

DSS as a spy agency should work harder at infiltrating IPOB because all their efforts so far have failed miserably and will continue to fail because we are the most disciplined mass movement anywhere on this earth today. Parading what is in effect a ghost as fake IPOB ‘leader’ to give the impression that IPOB is divided is a wretched joke long anticipated by the highest command of IPOB four years back and something we knew would happen, so we are prepared for it. Therefore it did not come to us as a surprise when this morning DSS hurriedly issued their usual ‘Okwudili’ press statement to the media to limit the fatal blow IPOB dealt Okezie Ikpeazu by simply stating the truth through our press statement yesterday that countered the lies he was spewing. The public must understand the tricks and propaganda strategy of DSS. Any time this APC regime is in trouble with their image, they fabricate false high propaganda value news and blackmail, cajole or bribe media houses to carry it so public attention will be deflected from the real issue/s. Remember the timing of the release of Chibok girls in 2017. Is it not a coincidence that this DSS generated press statement, attributed to a faceless nonentity they named ‘Okwudili’ claiming he is IPOB leader, came out on the day Amnesty International published their report confirming that at least 12 people were shot dead at the home of our leader on Afaraukwu Umuahia on 14 September 2017? That is the extent this deceptive Buhari regime is prepared to go to confuse the weak and gullible. Okezie Ikpeazu in less than 3 years in office, supervised five well-known massacres of innocent men, women and children in Abia State, from which he will never escape justice, for he will be punished severely at the appropriate time.

We knew Okezie Ikpeazu’s Hausa Fulani masters will come to his rescue and today they have done exactly that by using our hallowed name to seek to exonerate him. This move is too little, too late for them. Anybody who is remotely interested in knowing how ridiculous these whole fabrications are should remember similar attempts in the past by DSS to give the impression that IPOB is divided which came to nothing. This present Nigerian government in the past have floated RE-IPOB, TRIPOB, CG-IPOB and much more on the pages of newspapers, in the hope of attracting money hungry Igbo traitors to destabilize IPOB and betray Biafra but all their efforts failed. They floated a radio station in the US called Radio Biafra International which failed to take-off till date, that attempt to replicate the world famous Radio Biafra was what caused IPOB to launch Radio Nigeria Hausa Service. Okezie Ikpeazu, Nnia Nwodo and other traitors must know that lies and deception can never help their cause of exchanging our blood for money and political relevance in Nigeria.

The same way Buhari doesn’t exist in Aso Rock is how there is no ‘Okwudili’ leading IPOB. If this fake person does exist, how come there is no picture of him anywhere, he doesn’t address any gathering, he has no village, no parents, nothing. He is a mirage, a figment of the imagination of DSS and corrupt Igbo leadership. ‘Okwudili’ we know for sure exist in DSS computer hard drives and no place else. From there they move him to the pages of newspapers for a few hours and the name vanishes. Anybody who allows him or herself to be deceived by this childish antics from DSS might as well believe Jubril at Aso Rock today is Buhari or that Naira notes are the main diet of snakes and monkeys.

IPOB is one indivisible family under God. No man born of a woman is capable of dividing IPOB. If you claim you are Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s replacement, please come out let’s see you, after that then come down to Biafraland and address us.

IPOB Slams Okezie Ikpeazu Over Comment Against Nnamdi Kanu |RN

IPOB-Biafra-coat-of-arm (2)

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on Wednesday, tackled Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state over an alleged comment that its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, reneged on agreements reached with him and other South East governors during his interview granted to BBC Igbo Service in the Government House, Umuahia.

The group challenged Governor Ikpeazu to tell the world, where, when and with whom he met Kanu, saying that it would not allow him (Ikpeazu) to get away with this bare-faced deceit and lies

IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, while reacting to interview allegedly granted to BBC Igbo Service recently said that he should publish whatever material at his disposal that would lend credence to his assertions.

Powerful stated, “Over the coming days and weeks, Okezie Ikpeazu will be methodically and systematically shredded publicly for his blatant lies against our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the great IPOB movement he leads. It will be in his best interest and that of his Northern handlers to publish whatever material at his disposal that will lend credence to his assertions, chiefly that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu reneged on agreements reached with him and other South East governors during his interview granted to BBC Igbo Service in the Government House Umuahia.

“He must tell the world, where, when and with whom he met Nnamdi Kanu. We will not allow him to get away with this bare-faced deceit and lies. Lying has become second nature to most of these Hausa Fulani stooges masquerading as politicians in Igboland especially.

“These peddling of lies and distortion of facts against Kanu is a well-orchestrated plan conceived prior to Operation Python Dance 2 which they the governors initiated with Nnia Nwodo”

“They hoped to use compromised media channels like the BBC to peddle these lies that they had an agreement with Kanu when such never happened. Okezie Ikpeazu is a mass murderer cited at the ongoing case review by ICC at The Hague.

“He is also indicted in the ongoing lawsuit in the USA. He has been rejected by the public along with his other Fulani Islamic servants at Government Houses across the South East, so lying against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu or using his name is the only way to gain relevance and sympathy.

“Anybody who believes in anything coming out of the mouth of an Igbo governor or Nnia Nwodo led Ohaneze Ndigbo needs psychiatric help”.

“Okezie Ikpeazu failed to understand that the highly respected and foremost constitutional lawyer Prof. Ben Nwabueze was at the meeting between Nnamdi Kanu and Igbo governors which he Okezie Ikpeazu did not attend.
“We ask between Okezie Ikpeazu and Prof Ben Nwabueze who has more credibility? The truth about how Igbo governors and Nnia Nwodo out of petty envy and jealousy of the popularity and public acceptance of Nnamdi Kanu arranged for Hausa Fulani soldiers to use the cover of Operation Python Dance to assassinate him is well known to the world”.

“Okezie Ikpeazu should keep his testimony and evidence with him because he will soon be called upon to give the account of his role in the military invasion and abduction of Nnamdi Kanu and his parents from their home”.

“We are placing the world on notice that Okezie Ikpeazu has never met with our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu despite the fact that Umuahia government house sits on his ancestral land and his father the traditional ruler.

“Governor Okezie Ikpeazu is an unrepentant liar in the mould of other Igbo Biafra traitors before him. The day of reckoning is fast approaching and when that arrives, there will be no amount of Ghana Must Go bags or Hausa Fulani soldiers to defend them” Powerful alleged.

Nnamdi Kanu: Wife Insists He Is With Nigerian Army, Fears He May Be Dead |RN

Nnamdi-kanu-wife

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s wife, Lolo Uche Kanu

 

By Editor

Uche Kanu, Wife of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has insisted that her husband is in the custody of the Nigerian Army, but doubts if he is still alive.

Her claim is coming despite denials by Nigerian Army that it has no knowledge of the whereabouts of the leader of the group from the South-East part of Nigeria, calling for the independence of Biafra from Nigeria.

Uche Kanu, who spoke during an interview with BBC Igbo, explained that the Nigerian Army is thinking that the “battle is over” by holding Kanu in their custody, “but it is not over,” she said.

According to her, the last time she spoke with her husband was September last year when Nigerian soldiers invaded their home in Abia State.

“The IPOB people are not sleeping. The army is going to tell them where their leader is. Keeping Nnamdi Kanu does not mean that IPOB is asleep.

“I don’t know where my husband is. If he is dead or alive, I don’t know. The people that are supposed to answer these questions are the army.

“The last time I spoke with him was when the army came to shoot in our house. He called me and asked if I was hearing the gunshots. I heard the gunshots and started shouting and asked him what was wrong.

“He said they are shooting and he is inside the house. That was the last time we spoke.”

On the denial by the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed that government was not in the custody of Kanu, Uche said:

“Of course, that is what they will say, that they don’t know where he is. Lai Mohammed said he is not in their custody. That is what happened in another part of Africa that IPOB people were showing the world when they held him at first in 2015.

“I also asked them where he was and they claimed not to know. They released him afterwards. They have done it the first and second time, now they are lying about it for the third time. So, when they have done it twice and still claimed not to be the ones, would you believe?”

Responding to a question if the husband will regret his action she said, “He can never say had I known. This is what everybody is seeing that we want. My husband is not alone. He is fighting for the Biafrans. He wants togetherness. He is not coming out to be enemies with anybody. Our own ways are different, we do things differently.

“The way they are treating us is different from the way they are treating other people. The Hausas act differently to each other than the way they act to Igbos. We want to leave. It is not a bad thing. So many other cities are leaving.

“If you don’t have a strong mind, you cannot fight a strong battle. They are with Nnamdi Kanu and they think the battle is over but it is not over. People have been asking questions. Our people are angry.

“I hope he is alive in their custody. I know who I married, he can never say had I known. There is no way.”

She further said that the late Biafran warlord, Chukwuemeka Ojukwu would not have failed had it been he was given a chance to rule Nigeria.

Ojukwu led the Biafran army that unsuccessfully tried to secede from Nigeria in 1967.

She added, “Nigerians will not allow an Igbo person lead the country but if they had allowed, Ojukwu wouldn’t have failed.”   (Ripples Nigeria)

Nnamdi Kanu: Court Grants FG’s Request To Separate Treason Trial From Others |RN

 

 

Nnamdi-Kanu

IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu

 

By TUNDE OYESINA, ABUJA

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja yesterday granted an order separating the trial of the ‘missing’ leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu from that of other co-defendants.
The trial judge, Justice Binta Nyako also agreed to a request by the Federal Government to separate the charges against Kanu from that of his co-defendants.

Kanu is facing a five-count treasonable felony charge alongside four other pro-Biafra agitators- Chidiebere Onwudiwe, Benjamin Madubugwu, David Nwawuisi and Bright Chimezie
However, Kanu’s whereabouts has remained unknown since September last year.

The federal government had in a charge marked FHC/ABJ/CR/383/2015,alleged that Kanu and his co-defendants as well as other persons currently at large, had “on diverse dates in 2014 and 2015 in Nigeria and London, United Kingdom, did conspire amongst yourselves to broadcast on Radio Biafra monitored in Enugu and other areas within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, preparations being made by you and others at large, for states in the South-East and South-South zones and other communities in Kogi and the Benue States to secede from the Federal Republic of Nigeria with a view to constituting same into a Republic of Biafra and you thereby committed an offence punishable under section 516 of the Criminal Code Act, Cap C38 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2000.”

It further alleged that Kanu had “on or about the 28th April, 2015 in London, the United Kingdom did in a broadcast on Radio Biafra monitored in Enugu, Enugu state and other parts of Nigeria within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, referred to Major General Muhammadu Buhari, GCON, President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as a paedophile, a terrorist, an idiot and an embodiment of evil, knowing same to be false and you thereby committed an offence contrary to section 375 of the Criminal Code Act, Cap C. 38 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.”

The defendants were also alleged to have between the months of March and April, 2015, imported into Nigeria, a Radio transmitter known as TRAM 50L, which they concealed in a container that was declared as used household items, contrary to section 47(2) (a) of the Criminal Code Act, Cap C45, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004. Kanu was arrested by security operatives on October 14, 2015, upon his arrival from the United Kingdom. He is answering to four out of the five-count charge.”

When the matter came up yesterday, prosecution counsel, Shuaibu Labaran noted that Kanu’s continued absence had frustrated the progress of the trial.

He, however, made an oral application for the court to separate the charges against Kanu from the federal government’s preferred charges against his co-defendants.
The application was not opposed by all the defence counsel, including counsel to the IPOB leader, Ifeanyi Ejiofor.

In her ruling, Justice Nyako held that the request was granted in order “to meet the justice of the case.”

The court thereafter adjourned to March 20, 21 and 22 for a definite trial of the remaining four defendants.  (New Telegraph)

Anger, Disbelief Over Supposed Missing Case File Of Nnamdi Kanu At Appeals Court

Jeff Amechi Agbodo, Onitsha

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday raised concerns over the alleged disappearance of the case file of its leader Nnamdi Kanu at Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja.

The group described as “beyond a joke” an alleged statement by the presiding judge handling the case at the Court that Kanu’s case was missing/misplaced. 

In a statement by Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB said:

“When we thought the judiciary and legal establishment could not sink any lower in Nigeria, the impossible has happened. Court of Appeal judges today sitting in Abuja have declared the file of the leader of IPOB missing/misplaced. It is unheard of in the history of the Nigerian judiciary that a matter coming up for final judgement almost a year after the appellate court jury adjourned the matter, having heard all the arguments”.

“Not only is the delay by the Appeal Court illegal and unconstitutional, the conduct of those that heard and handled this very case is troubling. We no longer know what to make of the Nigerian judicial system. This is beyond a joke. The only thing missing from today’s court hearing is the proverbial snake because it wasn’t confirmed if the case file had been swallowed by yet another snake at the Appeal Court.”

The statement further reads:

“We are drawing the attention of the civilized world to the mess the Nigerian judiciary, terrorised by a brutal dictatorial regime, has turned into. Instead of delivering judgement for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the judiciary would rather break every constitutional provision guiding the timeline in cases at the Appeal Court.”

“This matter is one year overdue because the Nigerian constitution, which judges are meant to interprete and uphold, clearly stipulates that all Appeal Court judgements MUST be delivered within three months. It is up to a year without any judgement on this matter contrary to constitutional provision.”

“The Chief Justice of the Federation must step into this matter before the already tarnished image of the judiciary suffers even more before the eyes of the world.”

Nnamdi Kanu was in court to challenge the ruling of Justice John Tsoho when he reversed a ruling he gave on masking of witnesses in the treasonable felony trial of the IPOB leader and three others.  (The Sun)

Where Is Nnamdi Kanu, The Leader Of The Indigenous People Of Biafra? |RN

NnamdiKanu1

I have taken much of my ample time to recall on what happened at elder Kanu’s residence leading to the total disappearance of the royal monarch and his wife coupled with their immediate son who also doubles as the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, a legitimate body representing and fighting for all oppressed persons living within the area and territory known as Biafra.

The missing IPOB leader is a man of honor and probity that all hands should and must be on deck to demand for his whereabout from the Nigerian army that invaded his father’s house at Afra-Ukwu Ibeku in Umuahia the state capital of Abia State; Nnamdi Kanu before his forceful disappearance caused by the savages in Nigerian army uniform was always available for public features and scenes though he was placed on trial by the ever biased Nigeria government and her Judiciary whose under the mantle tyrant-ship of Mohammadu Buhari for demanding for a United Nations supervised referendum for his people that are forcefully under Nigerian government occupation and maltreatment.

It is discourteous on the part of Nigerian government and her kangaroo Judiciary under the effective rule and control of Mohammadu Buhari to quickly tagged the Indigenous People of Biafra a terrorist organization immediately after Dictator Mohammadu Buhari and his rampaging Nigerian army bathed every living and non-living things sighted at elder Kanu’s residence with bullets; kidnapped Nnamdi Kanu and his parents and later on denied their inhumanity acts against the peace loving leader of the Biafran people.

The Nigerian government of shame when further placed on notice by the Indigenous people of Biafra with substantive evidences that abounds could no longer deny their involvement in harassing, mowing down the peace loving people of Umuahia and Biafra at large as this was accepted by Nigerian Chief of Defence Staff on Channel TV as this also corroborated with their early claims that her leader was kidnapped by the Nigerian government; the Nigerian Chief of Defence Staff accepted this claims not under duress or tension that actually the Nigerian government attacked the people of Umuahia and likewise invaded Nnamdi Kanu’s home on tyrant Mohammadu Buhari’s order to clamp down on Biafra agitators.

Then what is Justice Binta Nyako of the –Abuja Federal High Court of Nigeria doing all this while since the forceful disappearance of Nnamdi Kanu occurred and took place, a man accused in the open by the Nigerian government was clearly not been seen in the public domain while on bail stipulated conditions that violate his every human rights as a free man born freely likewise every other human by the virtue of a woman who served as the vehicle of life?.

It is clearly seen that Justice Binta Nyako is trampling and sitting upon Justice; Justice Binta Nyako till this day forgot so suddenly every rational that has to do with the “Doctrine of the Last Scene” in law. From the angle of reasoning and wisdom Nigeria is on auto-pilot heading to hit the rock which will definitely cause her to wreck; this heavy cloudy filled with rain over us will send down rains of tears and sorrows if we continue to live in pretense and denial of the fact that Nnamdi Kanu and his Indigenous People of Biafra have not being appeased by the Nigerian government that caused their pains; are we also living in denial of the fact that Nigerian government had wronged this young man and his people on different fronts.

How about the Hausa-Fulani herdsmen menace in the country that has cost the lost of lives and properties within the confines of Nigeria? Who are the sole individuals serving as grand patrons to this herders association in Nigeria? From the world global terrorism index designated this herders association in Nigeria as a terrorist organization yet Dictator Mohammadu Buhari treat them with a kid’s glove based on ethnicity stock and sentiments while these heartless individuals go about killing innocent and unsuspecting Nigerian citizens.

From all indications Nigeria may not survive another civil war uprising this time around; the middle beltans are calling on their people to disassociate themselves with anything that has to do with the North [Arewa] as they posited in most of their public statements and communiques that was spelt out; just some weeks back Ayodele Fayose the incumbent Governor of Ekiti State of South-West of Nigeria inaugurated a group of hunters that will aid his government curb the menace of these Fulani savages in his State; Kogi State Assembly also enacted a law prohibiting the movement of cows destroying people’s farm which later result to lost of lives and properties.

Ohaneze Ndi-Igbo is not left out of this quagmire bedeviling Nigeria when her ever-corrupt leadership called for a jamboree meeting themed “Handshake Across the Niger” Ohaneze leadership of shame opinionated that Nigeria should tow the line of restructuring and this move was vehemently rejected by they Biafran women who graced the occasion as they rained curses on Ohaneze leadership and demanded from Ohaneze leadership and Nigerian government to tell them about Nnamdi Kanu’s whereabouts. Bokoharam are on the other hand fighting for an Islamic State of Arewa while the Fulanis’ wants “Cattle Colony” across the length and breadth of the geographical area named Nigeria by the British government.

We can’t continue to pretend for so long with respect to these National issues at hand now; all the regions in Nigeria are calling for one thing or another yet the cabals in Aso-Rock are smoke screening these issues that calls for National urgent attention from all aggrieved people in Nigeria so as to know if they wish to remain as being part of Nigeria or walk out their way through a United Nations supervised referendum for peace to reign within this Nigeria enclave.

Biafran Suit In USA: US Court Rejects Nigeria’s Defense Of Immunity |RN

In a counter motion filed on February 6, 2018, the US-based lawyers for the Biafran plaintiffs who brought suit against some Nigerian officials have strongly urged a United States federal court to proceed to trial on the merits, stressing the damning fact the US State Department has rejected a request from the Buhari-led Nigerian government for the State Department to intervene and stop the suit based on the sovereign immunity defense.

At Page 4 of the 35-page motion obtained by this reporter, plaintiffs lawyers stated that “Despite an overture by the Government of Nigeria, the United States Department of State has refrained from suggesting any defendant is immuned from plaintiffs’ TVPA claims under federal common law or otherwise. Neither has the State Department suggested that any defendant is a head of state in Nigeria”.

The counter motion was necessitated by a motion filed by defence lawyers to dismiss the suit based on grounds that included the act of state doctrine, lack of jurisdiction and sovereign immunity. Dr. Bruce Fein and associates, lawyers to the Biafran plaintiffs argued in-opposite that such defenses are not allowed under the Statutes upon which the suit was brought.

Plaintiffs’ counsel also argued that defence motions are questionable because the defense lawyers are, before the court, fighting amongst themselves as to who should be recognized to represent the defendants.

The case is pending before the United States District Court for the District of Columbia against sixteen Nigerian officials for their direct or indirect complicity in the extrajudicial killings of IPOB members/Biafrans who had launched peaceful protests in the wake of arrest and detention of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

The officials are: Tukur Yusuf Buratai; Lawal Musa Daura; Ibrahim Attahiru; M.I. Ibrahim; Kasim Umar Sidi; Issah Maigari Abdullahi; Solomon Arase; Ibrahim Kpotun Idris; Okezie Ikpeazu; Willie Obiano; Habila Hosea; Peter Nwagbara; James Oshim Nwafor; Hosea Karma; Bassey Abang; and Johnson Babatunde Kokomo.

In the counter motion, counsel to plaintiffs argued, amongst others, that jurisdiction has vested through service of the summons and complaint by certified international courier on all defendants.

The Suit is grounded on two muscular United States’ statutes – the Alien Tort Claims Act (ATCA or ATS – the Alien Tort Statute); and the Torture Victims Protection Act (TVPA). Both laws have extraterritorial reach, meaning that they allow US federal courts to assert long-arm jurisdiction that extends beyond the borders of United States.

Alien Tort Claims Act (ATCA) provides that ‘the district courts shall have original jurisdiction on any civil action by an alien (foreigner) for a civil wrong committed in violation of the law of nations or a treaty of the United States’. Since 1980, courts have interpreted this statute to allow foreign citizens to seek remedies in US courts for human rights violations for conduct committed outside the United States.

Torture Victim Protection Act of 1991 is a statute that permits civil suits in the United States against foreign individuals who – acting in an official capacity for any foreign nation – committed torture and/or extrajudicial killings.

In the suit, plaintiffs lawyers argued that ‘The factual case against the defendants is convincing. The world already knows of the widespread beatings and slaughter of protesting Igbos/IPOB by elements of Nigerian security forces at various locations after Nnamdi Kanu was arrested. Amnesty International and other credible foreign sources have confirmed those killings and torture’. Those reports were filed in Court.

Beyond the latest processes, and at the ensuing trial, Defendants will be required to personally appear before the US court to testify under oath and probing cross-examination that will dwell on the details of the IPOB killings and the complicity of other unnamed Nigerian officials.  (Daily Biafra)
