Biafra: Why Asari Dokubo is Attacking Nnamdi Kanu

Re-published by The Biafra Post | 24 April 2019

In his efforts to eliminate pipeline vandalism and other related terror activities like kidnapping of expatriate oil workers in the Niger Delta region, late President Umaru Musa Yar’adua instituted amnesty. As part of the incentives, the federal government made massive cash offer to Asari Dokubo and other militant leaders in the Niger Delta.

Particularly, Asari Dokubo was offered $10 million annually under the guise of Pipeline Security Protection fee, having been awarded the contract to protect Rivers state pipelines and creeks his boys have been vandalizing in addition to kidnapping workers and killing guards. That contract was made possible through the mediation of then Vice President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, who not only hailed from the same region, but is also Asari’s kinsman. That mouthwatering contract ran successfully till 2015 when late President Muhammadu Buhari came to power.

Recall Asari’s restiveness in the buildup to 2015 elections and all the threats he issued to the Northern hegemony as regards the plot to dethrone President Goodluck. At that time, many, myself inclusive, thought it a brotherly-concern affair. How wrong we were. Dude, we now realize was concerned of his pipeline contract, and not brother Jonathan’s success.

Well, all his threats were empty; Hausa/Fulani scared brother Jonathan out of office and power returned to North untimely. Upon assuming office, late Muhammadu Buhari terminated the pipeline contract awarded to Asari Dokubo. As time progressed, with no block money flowing in as it used to, the realities of Jonathan’s woe came hard on the militant-turned pipeline contractor. He then sought a viable platform with which he can combat the federal government. Having lost relevance in Niger Delta Volunteer Force for his treachery, Asari saw in Biafra agitation a more potent tool to get back to the Buhari government. He then declared himself a Biafran, throwing in with IPOB – the only potent and engaging group on freedom quest.

IPOB received him with open arms, relishing the perceived steam he would add to the struggle. Asari soon cooked up stories of projects, convincing IPOB leadership will help advance the struggle. The unsuspecting leadership of IPOB gladly availed him all the logistics he demanded – money and other material things. Asari didn’t follow through; he produced excuses in lieu of results.

Brother Asari made several videos, publicly and vehemently reiterating his support for the Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The public would remember the video in which he said that some people are telling him that he is following Nnamdi Kanu, doing boy-boy for him, and that he said to them “if Nnamdi Kanu is doing better than me in the Biafra restoration project, why won’t I follow him?” By that response, Asari admits Kanu is doing better than him in our quest for freedom. Not that his admission means much, for that fact is glaring even to the blind, but it straightens record as being recounted today.

Not willing to go into arms struggle – at least for now – IPOB leadership adopted the principle of civil disobedience known to have been used effectively in India by Mahatma Gandhi, in the US by Martin Luther King Junior, in Croatia, South Africa (Soweto), and many other parts of the world who have sought self-determination or equal rights as Luther’s case in the US was. IPOB declared and stood on election boycott with the sole aim of getting the Nigerian state to play ball as regards the group’s demand for a referendum date. It should be recalled that this principle of election boycott garnered serious momentum in 2017 toward the Anambara state governorship election, so serious that even in the face of Operation Python Dance, the illegal and malicious proscription of IPOB, and the attendant persecution of the group, overwhelming majority of Anambara indigenes complied to it – a situation that left the irredeemably corrupt political class no choice than to doctor results, agreeing among themselves not to challenge anything in court. Asari Dokubo didn’t attack Nnamdi Kanu at that time, nor did he in any way condemn the idea of boycotting the election.

Then approached 2019 general elections. Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani, now impersonating late President Buhari, was presented for the election by APC cabal headed by Abba Kyari. Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, prostituting himself politically, returned to PDP and somehow managed to emerge its flag bearer. Executing political wisdom however, he picked an Igbo man for vice. With that choice, he hoped to harvest Biafra (South East/South South) votes, knowing how disenchanted the region is with the Buhari administration. Certain to divide the votes in North, with Biafra vote in his custody, he is certain to cruise to victory. Brother Asari recognized this, and seeing in Atiku’s victory a window of opportunity in regaining his lost millions of dollar pipeline contract, threw in with Atiku at once. But then, there stood an obstacle on the way: IPOB’s call for election boycott.

The manifestation of IPOB’s call for election boycott as a giant stumbling block took off the sheep’s clothing the wolf has been donning. The attack began. Brother Asari lost every sense of caution and loyalty to IPOB, launching tirades first at IPOB as a body, and then specifically at Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

He first accused him of working for Buhari’s (Jubril) reelection, arguing that the boycott will benefit the incumbent administration. If Asari Dokubo’s opposition to the election boycott was an innocent one, why didn’t he speak up at the buildup to 2017 Anambara state election? And if not sheer vile or drunkenness as the case might be, how would anyone insinuate that Nnamdi Kanu was working for the return of an administration that murdered thousands of his followers, jailed him for two years, invaded his house with sophisticated war armaments, killing twenty-eight of his men in the process and forcing him and his parents into exile? Come to that, what even informed the notion that Biafrans boycotting the election will benefit the incumbent government? Is brother Asari properly schooled? If he and the rest of the treacherous folks in our land (the likes of Nnia Nwodo and our governors) had joined forces with IPOB in the boycott effort and had successfully grounded Biafra land, would that not have triggered a cascade of events that will culminate in Biafra’s independence?

Having made himself a stench to his own people and opened the door for the enemy to come in, brother Asari positioned himself for deals. The enemy did the expected. Now reeling in the disappointment Atiku’s loss orchestrated and oared on by the money the caliphate threw at him, brother Asari, upped his attacks on Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. His latest defamatory onslaught is the accusation that the Biafra leader killed a little-known self-acclaimed prophet, Anthony Nwoko. Although it’s now an open secret that the DSS masterminded the killing of the poor fellow to besmear Kanu, the poor man having been a critic of the Biafran leader, Asari Dokubo carried on with the calumny.

While we will not throw the dirty water with the child, may I use this medium to appeal to brother Asari to consider the end of our other brothers who have treaded the path he is now on – the likes of Ken Saro Wiwa and Isaac Adaka Boro – and retrace his steps.

Biafra: How Igbo Politicians Destroyed Atiku’s Chances; The Nnamdi Kanu Effect

By Nelson Ofokar Yagazie | This article was first published by The Biafra Times , and republished by The Biafra Post| April 20, 2019

Atiku Abubakar, shaking hand with Ohanaeze President, Chief Nwodo
Recall that at the reappearance of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Jerusalem after thirteen months of incommunicado – a depressing period forced upon him by the military invasion of his home aimed at silencing him forever – IPOB’s primary occupation was the unmasking of the Sudanese impostor in Aso Rock, Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani who, by the design of the Fulani cabal spearheaded by Abba Kyari, has been impersonating the late president, Muhammadu Buhari, since the first half of 2017. Yes, IPOB stood on its declaration of election boycott – a principle adopted and followed since 2015. Nevertheless, the principal was never targeted at any individual or political party; it was solely meant to force Nigeria’s hand in the group’s demand for a referendum date. We will reconnect to this later.

At the buildup to the 2019 Nigeria election, a day or two after the call-off of election boycott by the supreme leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), a friend asked me, “Now that your leader has called off the boycott, who do you folks support in the presidential race?” I told my friend that IPOB has no candidate and that our leader merely called off our official stand on boycott, freeing whosoever wants to participate to do so. I told him that our leader asked members who would like to vote to go for the candidate of their choice. My friend hailed the wisdom in the freewill availed members and then, in his characteristic smartness, probed further, “You folks in IPOB are privy to intelligent reports; who do your secret intelligence inform will emerge winner in the presidential poll?” I laughed – the type locally dubbed “laughing in Latin.” Did my friend really think if I had any intelligent report I was going to share it with him? If I did, then I am not worth being confided in. In fact, it would amount to treachery. I shook my head, laughed again “in Latin” and said to him, “Brother, I have no intelligent report on that. But if asked my personal assessment, then I will say Jubril will be returned to power, for the only opportunity Atiku had is the Jubril Factor, but then, PDP spoilt that chance when they attacked IPOB and its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”

Elucidating, I explained that the APC cabal are set to rig their way back to the presidential villa, and will not relinquish power except something monumental is unleashed on them. To claim power from them therefore, Atiku would have to threaten them with telling Nigerians that Kanu is right about Jubril, relaying every piece of information he has on the impersonation plot, and then, putting the final nail in the coffin by demanding the impostor’s DNA test.

My friend argued the typical Nigerian way, doubting the verisimilitude of the Jubril saga and playing down the seriousness of Atiku’s background. Well, today things are unfolding and he is getting wiser.

As mentioned earlier in the opening paragraph, IPOB was focusing on the unmasking of Jubril until PDP, mainly the Igbo stalwarts, fearing that Kanu’s call for election boycott will ground the entire Biafra land, launched serious verbal attacks on IPOB and its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Using different media platforms, these self-serving politicians whose primary concern is political appointments and contracts, did all they could to discredit the IPOB leader and mislead the poor masses on the potency of election boycott and the attendant gains. Taking advantage of the hunger in the land, they recruited thousands of unemployed youths who took to social media, ridiculing not just the idea of election boycott, but also the originator, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and his free-state agitating group, IPOB. The misery of hunger laced in mental ineptitude really showcased its lethalness in black African societies as these recruited poor minds fought dirty against the very thing that was meant to save them.

As lyrically recited by the late reggae legend, Robert Nesta Marley, an ancient saying asserts, “to every little action, there is a reaction.” Late iconic scientist, Isaac Newton, corroborated this when in his Third Law of Motion he stated, “Action and reaction are equal and opposite.” The uncharitable actions of Igbo PDP chieftains drew the ire of IPOB, placing the group’s attention heavily on the party and its flag bearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. Their chapter was then opened and in the process, the bullet that killed Atiku’s dream was fired. Atiku’s background was dug out – a background that constitutionally robs him of every hope of emerging Nigeria’s number one citizen.

Returning blow for blow, the enigmatic leader of Indigenous people of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, shocked the world with Atiku’s place of birth, date of birth, and the very process that made him a Nigerian citizen, juxtaposing these revelations with the constitutional provisions on one becoming the president of Nigeria. Born in 1946 in Jada, a town belonging to Northern Cameroon, Atiku became a Nigerian through a plebiscite held in 1961.But Nigerian constitution clearly states that to qualify to run for the office of the president, one must be a Nigerian by birth.

The point here is not being a citizen or not as most people mistakenly argue, the point is being born a citizen or not. Atiku and his people became citizens after the plebiscite of 1961, no doubt. But Atiku was born before that plebiscite, meaning he was not born a Nigerian, and Nigerian constitution clearly spelt one must be born a Nigerian to qualify for its most coveted political seat. It is rather lugubrious that many a legal practicing folk are still in the dark as regards this matter, but then, education in Nigeria is a scam. The difference between Atiku and his kids should be noted however, for while his children are born Nigerians, Atiku is not.

At the time of Kanu’s revelation, the APC power players who it has now come to be known, are ardent listeners of Radio Biafra, recognizing the potency of this weapon, took it into their arsenal but made no public reference to it, waiting patiently for the right time to strike. Fully equipped now, the cabal went into the election orchestrating the most monumental of all election frauds. They did not bother if it is glaring to the world or not; they already have a lethal weapon with which to quell any form of contention – the ineligibility of Atiku to run for the presidency, a constitutional weapon served them by Nnamdi Kanu.

It should be noted that had PDP not attacked IPOB, Kanu wouldn’t have dug out Atiku’s background in relation to the constitutional provisions, and if he hadn’t dug that out, the APC would have been sparing in their rigging, and if they had been sparing in their rigging, Atiku certainly would have emerged winner. And if in their desperation, APC had still gone on with massive rigging, Atiku, with all the evidences at his disposal, would have reclaimed victory at the tribunal as the APC wouldn’t have been in possession of such lethal arsenal now being employed to stop him. But the Igbo politicians in PDP did the damage. It was them that, cuing behind Peter Obi and fearing that Kanu’s call for boycott would greatly undermine their chances, launched diatribes at the IPOB leader – one mistake too many, for that single action midwifed the firing of the ferret that sunk Atiku totally.

Official Press Release
Published On (TheBiafraPost)
April, 19,2019

The motive behind the sponsored news announcing the unfortunate demise of the Enugu based freelance prophet" Anthony Nwoko and his previous association with our leader, is to dampen or deflect attention from the earth-shattering worldwide broadcast scheduled for Saturday, April 20, 2019 on Radio Biafra, then they better be informed that their plans have failed woefully. Our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will broadcast, that mankind may know the evil that Nigeria has become. This diversionary tactics of planting a sensational story in APC sympathetic newspapers is meaningless and will never work. Whoever it was within the Nigerian security apparatus that dreamt up this ruse is a colossal failure because we IPOB have faced worse and come out stronger.

Should independent autopsy confirm any foul play in the reported death of Anthony Nwoko, then DSS and Army will be held accountable. Their recent spate of abductions and killings across Biafraland is proof if any is needed, that they would commit whatever atrocity they can, in the hope of implicating IPOB.

We mourn the loss of every Biafran and in this regard, we remember those shot dead in Asaba a few days ago on Monday 15 April, recent victims of Fulani terrorist attacks in Anambra, Delta and Abia. Our heart also goes

out to those unlawfully incarcerated for the unspeakable crimes at a Catholic Church in Ozubulu who have only two days ago regained their freedom.

IPOB is well aware that the Nigerian government and her security agencies will go to any length to stain our unimpeachable reputation in the hope of using it as a cover to continue their ongoing unreported war against IPOB. The media should be mindful not to prejudice the uninvestigated circumstances surrounding the passing of Anthony Nwoko in order not to become unwitting agents of dark forces that wish to tarnish the image of IPOB at any given opportunity.

As a movement rooted in the principles of democratic values and all it entails, IPOB will always welcome criticisms from all quarters because the Biafra we are seeking to build will be an open tolerant society.

We must, however, caution that Biafrans should be mindful of the opportunities their perceived hostility towards Biafra liberation might present to those seeking to exploit it for the benefit of the Fulani 'One Nigeria' caliphate agenda.

Enemies of Biafra within and outside the East will seek out every available avenue to damage the stellar standing of IPOB and her leadership and they will never ever stop until we recognise the danger they pose to us all. Without the benefit of any official police report on the cause of death, or a cause of death determined by a medical examiner, some journalists of Igbo extraction have already filed a report to their Yoruba bosses in Abuja and Lagos indicting IPOB. Those whose headline screamed "butchered in his house" failed to tell us why no single trace of blood was found in his house or his clothes.

If this APC demonic dictatorship had their way, they would have blamed IPOB for the sacking and conviction of Onnoghen in order to engineer enmity between South East and South South. Nothing is beyond them in their desperation to subdue every opposition.

We will flush out Jubril Al-Sudani the great impostor from Aso Rock. He must provide his DNA and face charges of high crimes and misdemeanours alongside Abba Kyari and the rest. Nothing our enemies do, even with the help of a media that doesn't investigate stories, will stop IPOB from liberating Biafra from the shackles of damnation and iniquity that Nigeria has come to represent.
