'We will continue agitation for Biafra’s freedom' - IPOB dares Nigerian Army | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB and its leadership worldwide under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has described as illegal and unconstitutional the alleged declaration by the Nigerian Army that it is a terrorist group.

IPOB in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful said the Nigerian Army lack the constitutional power to declare any group as a terrorist group, saying that it will ignore the declaration by the Army and any other group and continue its agitation for Biafra restoration. We in IPOB condemn the illegal declaration made by Nigerian army labelling the peaceful freedom fighting organization as IPOB as a terrorist organization.

We found the statement made by Nigerian army a laughable and caricature the Nigerian Army is making of itself, we will continue doing what we are doing which is peaceful agitation for Biafra freedom. “Whatever be the case Nigerian Army has no right or power to labelling IPOB a terrorist group whiles the case still in the court. It is the duty of Nigerian court to decide the case between the Nigerian government and IPOB under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

 “We urge the Nigerian government and her security operatives to stop their barbaric and unprovoked attacks to unarmed and innocent civilians who have not been involved in any act of crime or violence since the inception of this struggle for Biafra independence championed by IPOB.

 “It’s very appalling that south East governors will always stoop so low to allow our general enemies to continue to tele-guide them in their meeting at Enugu in collaborating with security operatives to eliminate their people whom they suppose to protect because they want re election of political office in 2019.

“In any case we do not even regard the South East governors, as far as Biafra struggle is concerned we do not regard, and do not even know that South East Governor exist, they are not in control of the states they are Governors” According to IPOB “it is imperative to remind Nigerians that we are not in doubt that Nigerian government and her security operatives especially the Nigerian army cannot win this battle and don’t have the temerity to label IPOB under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu a terrorist group, while the case between the Nigerian government and IPOB is still in the Federal High Court Abuja.”

“It is very clear to all sundry, that this action of the Nigerian Army which started killing innocent Biafran populations in the name of pursuing criminals in every part of Biafra land, and at the same time labelling IPOB as a terrorist group is an indicative the completion of the extermination of Igbo agendas set during the time Usman Dan Fodio.

We are not surprise that the present killings and intimidations in South East particularly in Umuahia, Aba and Port Harcourt has the backing of the present caliphate in Sokoto, which has deemed it necessary to follow the steps laid down by their forefathers to wipe out Biafrans and to pave way for the islamization of South east.

“The Fulani herdsmen has been involved in killing and ravaging of South East, destroying farm crops without any record of arrest or detention of any of them since the inauguration of this present government Muhammadu Buhari, and he has always kept silent on their activities, and the solders always assist them whenever they are on mission to kill Christians, they have not be declared a terrorist group of people, what a government.

“Buhari and his soldiers cannot win this war against IPOB because it is on record in every part of Biafra land and the world over that since the inception the IPOB activities, nobody will say he has been harassed intimidated or shot by IPOB, nobody will ever come out to prove he has seen any of our member with arms like the herdsmen are clearly seen with AK 47 riffle.

“Nobody in Biafra land or in the Diaspora including foreign citizens and those strangers living in any part of Biafra land, will ever say IPOB carry arms, our weapon peaceful protest which we have suspended for some time now, yet we are passing our message to the people while Nigerian Government continue to be jittery.

“IPOB under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu wins more converts every day in spite of the attacks, killings, intimidation on the innocent civilians and peaceful members of IPOB, we cannot accept the statement credited to Nigeria Army of labelling us a terrorist group, Nigerian Army is the real terrorist group.

“We urge Nigerian government and its Army to wait till October 17 October 2017 when the case will come up, if they have a superior arguments to challenge our leader Mazi Kanu and IPOB members worldwide they should come to the competent court of jurisdiction to table their case not parading themselves, not us as a terrorist group. “The only constituted authority that can declare IPOB a terrorist group is a competent court of jurisdiction in Nigeria, not the Nigerian Army and South East Governors, they are only making mockery of their selves.”

  2. which constitution are u referring to..? when u don't believe in the Nigerian state and it's constitution..

  3. But is it constitutionally right for the military to describe any group as a terrorist why there are many terrorist groups in the north killing people yet they are free.

  4. You can not be a judge over your case so stay calm and wait for the October 27 you mentioned

  5. I have watched Nnamdi KANU very closely with gusto and must say that he's influenced a lot of minds with his agitations, especially the inferior, sentimental and biased minds. Does he have a good case? Probably,he does have a good case but he doesn't have the rhetorics to wisely communicate and pursue to a logical conclusion his grievances. He sounds very much like a broken record,in fact,he has difficulty attracting the elite class. This is worsened by the provocative and mindless manner he unleashes his venom on all his perceived enemies and the haughty ways he portrays himself thinking that he's a sage,which he's far from attending because of his disposition. The cause he's agitating for,although many have in their minds identified with it,indeed there's gross case of marginalisation in Nigeria which has its root from the conceptualization of it as a nation coupled with the sinister motives of those who created it. Unlike KANU, many do not have the guts or are comfortable in their egocentric sphere to embark on such journey. But KANU is
    without discretion and tactless. He could have made a formidable impact if he'd consulted the right minds and follow it through with patience and persistence,listening and sieving out what does not follow the recipe of his agenda.I hope he gets to learn the complex and peculiar nature of Nigeria and meet the right people for a way forward so it doesn't become messier.

  6. “The only constituted authority that can declare IPOB a terrorist group is a competent court of jurisdiction in Nigeria, not the Nigerian Army and South East Governors, they are only making mockery of their selves.”

    <<======: if you are aware of the above, why all the agitation? You too should take your strygule to the right channels and stop heating up the polity.

  7. During GEJ era when PDP was desperately exploring every unimaginable and absurd strategy that they could use in discrediting the Presidential Ambition of PMB, they decided to explore the propaganda of labelling PMB as the one who vowed that Nigeria will become ungovernable if he should loss the 2011 Election.

    Now the unfathomable thing as happened, PMB has been overwhelmingly voted to victory by majority of voters across Nigeria.

    PMB is fighting corruption (When the Righteous Minded Bears Rule, the People will always have hope and the Nation will earn it's well deserved respect among other Nations), the Nations Economy that was destroyed is gradually being repaired and restored, several PDP Era Atrocities and Other PDP Era Acts of Treasury Looting and Plundering as being exposed on virtually daily basis.

    Now, it appears the only Strategy available to PDP and their Cohorts that they can use in fighting PMB is by Systematically making the Nigeria Ungovernable for APC and PMB.

    Through PDP's Strategy of making Nigeria Ungovernable, they have floated IPOB (people should carefully go through the history and background activities of Nnamdi Kanu), sponsoring all manner and forms of Civil Unrest, raising Militants and all sorts of Criminality in a Democratic Dispensation.

    Henceforth in Nigeria, PDP and their Cohorts should be held responsible for all forms of Societal Unrest that threatens the Peace of Governance in Nigeria.

    We give glory to God that despite all their manners of evil and devious strategies, God has helped Nigeria so far. We can see the light down the tunnel, God has helped us out of Economic Recession that PDP and their Cohorts irresponsibly and brazenly steered the ship of dear Nation Nigeria into.

    This Change shall indeed work for Nigeria by that special grace of almighty God and to the shame of every hidden or visible enemy of progress in Nigeria.

    May God complete the deliverance of Nigeria from utter backwardness in the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.

    May the Lord continue to frustrate and reduce to oblivion all the known and secret enemies of Nigeria in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, Amen and Amen.

    May the Lord erase all the known and secret enemies of Nigeria like human fart in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, Amen and Amen.
