Kanu’s mother died of affliction —MASSOB

Owerri The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, led by Mazi Uchenna Madu, yesterday linked the death of Sally Okwu Kanu,  mother of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, to affliction suffered within the time of her Biafra struggle.

In a statement to newsmen in Owerri, by the MASSOB, National Director of Information, Edeson Samuel, added that her demise would motivate Biafrans to double their efforts for the actualization of the Biafra republic.

He recalled that most of the Biafran freedom fighters could trace the story leading to the death of their mothers from the time they were “incarcerated” starting from Ralph Uwazuruike, Uchenna Madu, Nnamdi Kanu, and many others. MASSOB narrated:

 “The leadership of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) mourns the death of Lolo Sally Okwu Kanu, the mother of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu (Leader of IPOB). The announcement of her death came as a shock to MASSOB.

THE ECONOMIC STRANGULATION OF BIAFRALAND AND THE DECEIT OF IGBO PRESIDENCY

In a desperate bid by the Nigerian State to completely wreck the economic developmental growth of the indigenous Biafran population who are forcefully caged in the Nigerian contraption, the federal government has relentlessly being churning out despotic policies aimed totally and permanently, at mortgaging the future of Biafra citizens. Though some questions could prop up regarding what the Governors within the South-East and South-South regions are realistically doing to effect positive changes in the lives of the people but instead, these self-serving political merchants have surreptitiously been aiding the Nigerian oppressive government to kill, maim and subject their people to misery and strangulation.

Words will not suffice to fully describe the level of the dastardly effects the obnoxious economic and political policies of the Nigerian government, have meted on Biafrans over the years. This desperate strangulation drive cuts across every segment of the citizens' well-being …

I CHOOSE MY PEOPLE,HUASA/FULANI OVER NIGERIA. Tukur Danmuazu:Wrote

I believe Igbo should have their Biafra because I find no single positive reason why we must live as one nation while other people closer to us than the Igbo are having separate nations. As a man without colonial mentality, I do not allow colonial hangover to becloud my reason.
There is already Biafra. No Hausa/Fulani dares dream of going to the east for whatever reason. So where is the One Nigeria? Is it not better to make the separation formal so that we can trade freely and and even send ambassadors? Can't you see how we ralate with Niger Republic, Cameroon, Ghana, Chad and Benin Republic? We related with some of them for ages even before we know the Igbo. What is wrong if strangers, Igbos, have their seprate nation like our old friends in Niger Rep, Ghana, Chad etc do? For a hundred years past we have lived in mutual suspicion and bitterness with this strangers, sometimes leading to carnage. Why must we live as some dead colonial masters wanted us to live?
Only truth can solv…

My Response To David Cameron’s Claims

I read the comments by former British Prime Minister, David Cameron, in his new book, For the Record, in which he accused me and the Nigerian Government, which I headed, of corruption and rejecting the help of the British Government in rescuing the Chibok Girls, who were kidnapped on April 14, 2014.

It is quite sad that Mr. Cameron would say this because nothing of such ever occurred. As President of Nigeria, I not only wrote letters to then Prime Minister David Cameron, I also wrote to the then US President, Barrack Obama, and the then French President, François Hollande, as well as the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, appealing to them for help in rescuing the Chibok Girls.

How could I write to appeal for help and then reject the very thing I appealed for?

Also, history contradicts Mr. Cameron. On March 8, 2012, when the same Boko Haram linked terrorists abducted a British expatriate named Chris McManus, along with an Italian hostage Franco Lamolinara, in Sokoto, I, as N…

ANARCHY: WE ALIGN WITH BIAFRA AND ANNOUNCE OUR WITHDRAWAL FROM NIGERIA •

Oduduwa Republic.

Anarchy is defined as a state of society without government or law. Today, what used to be the country called Nigeria is totally devoid of law and order and descended into the abyss of anarchy.

The world condemned the actions of the feudalist so-called Fulani ruling class when they sacked Chief Justice Walter Onnoghen to impose one of theirs ahead of the 2019 elections, but we paused to react.

Again and again the feudal barbarians in charge have desecrated the sanctity of the judicial arm, standing in contempt of court, disregarding pronouncements by our Judges. Repeatedly these anarchists flaunt court orders, rendering our courts useless and there has been no implication and we the Yoruba nation have paused to react.

Again, without regard for law and order, the feudalists continue to pardon terrorists and killers of their tribe or inkling, granting them amnesty and reward after they kill and rape our people. Yet we paused to react.

Whereas when kidnappers like Evans…

RUGA SETTLER COLONIALISM; THE IRISH HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE

Between 1536 to 1691, the Republic of Ireland was conquered and annexed into the United Kingdom by the King of England as part of the colonies of the English. The Irish were a different Ethnic group completely different from the English in culture, language and ancestry. Even though the Irish and the English had the same religion which was Christianity they belonged to different christian sects.  The Irish were Catholics while the English were  Protestants.
The first thing that was done by the English to make sure that the conquest of Ireland was permanent was to import Settlers from England and Scotland who were majorly Protestants into Ireland. They gave the new settlers one fifth of Irish land. When the Irish people revolted, the English crown responded with force and awarded four-fifth of the land to the Scottish and English settlers. This made many Irish peasants to migrate to America, many became destitute and many others died of plagues and starvation.
It was not until 1922 th…

IPOB PRESS RELEASE 23/09/2019

We understand and respect the legitimate yearning of the public to know what transpired between IPOB delegation to the United Nations in Geneva led by our able leader and prophet Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the staff of the various agencies of the UN we met and had fruitful discussions with. Without divulging very sensitive details that may undermine confidence and future discussions such as the one we just had, it will be prudent to say at this time that the meetings went very well and in some instances surpassed our expectations.

It can be said that what transpired between IPOB delegation and the UN official is a matter of utmost trust and confidentiality governed by mutual respect. But let say this if it will help: our case is now before the various specialised UN agencies or working groups with specialty in various specific monumental human rights abuses systematically perpetrated against Biafrans and other vulnerable individuals and groups in Nigeria.

Radio Fulani: IPOB, OPC ready for Showdown

H

Last week, the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government announced that it has acquired an Amplitude Modulation radio broadcast licence for the purpose of opening a radio frequency to reach Fulani herdsmen across various locations in the country as part of measures to enhance nomadic education.

Education Minister, Adamu Adamu who disclosed this in Abuja during an interview with newsmen, noted that the establishment of the radio frequency – which will broadcast in Fufulde, the Fulani language and operate on frequency of 720KHz – is to end the persistent ‘farmers versus herders’ crises across the country.

“The radio service will serve as a vehicle for social mobilisation and education, in addition to interactive radio instruction methodology that will be adopted to reach the very hard-to-reach segment of our target population,” he said. “Additionally, it will enhance our capacity to address crisis between herders and farmers with attendant consequences to loss of lives, destr…

Biafra: Ohanaeze backs IPOB, MASSOB

From Chidi Nnadi, Enugu The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has expressed its unflinching support for agitation for a sovereign state of Biafra. The organisation announced its backing at a press conference organised by its Secretary General, Dr Joe Nworgu even as Ohanaeze revealed it was set hand over to new national officers in January after election and to confirm the ban placed on the youth wing of the organisation. Nworgu said that the continued marginalisation of the Igbo has made the agitation for the state of Biafra inevitable, saying that Igbo adults are as disgruntled as the youths who are leading in the agitation for Biafra. He said Ohanaeze had not condemned the Biafran agitation by the youths, asking “why should we condemn what is true?” According to him,“the difference is that while the parent body is preaching patience, the youths don’t have time for such; youths must be youths, so they are responding in their own ways. But the problem is the same…
