Biafra: The Animalistic Instincts of Nnia Nwodo

Nnia Nwodo (R), Ike Ekweremadu (L)
Following the encounter with aggrieved Igbo youths in Nuremberg, Germany, in which the erstwhile deputy president of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, was chased out of the Iri Ji festival, the president of the proscribed Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, has called on German police to arrest the protesting Igbo youths.  Mistaking Europe for the uncivilized Nigeria, the self-serving president of Ohaneze urged German police to deal with the Igbo youths for registering dissatisfaction with the current crop of Igbo politicians.

Nnia Nwodo who was only months ago described as an idiot by the governor of Anambara state, Willie Obiano, was full of hate as he poured venom on the protesting youths. In a statement issued in Enugwu hours after the incident, Nwodo said, “The assault on Ekweremadu by Igbos in Germany, described as IPOB, is disappointing, grotesque and dangerous for Igbo solidarity. This violent, rude, impertinent, divisive and discourteous style of IPOB or IPOB instigated miscreants is damaging to our cause. It strengthens the case of those who describe them as terrorists and weaken our case against the infringement of our fundamental human rights.” In his view, staging a demonstration qualifies one as a terrorist. Pathetic.

It’s quite lugubrious that whilst Nnia Nwodo sees a simple protest aimed at awakening Igbo politicians up to their responsibilities as “grotesque, rude, impertinent, divisive and dangerous for Igbo solidarity,” he doesn’t see the conspiratorial silence of the politicians over the constant killing, raping and abducting of our people by the marauding Fulani herdsmen in the same light, neither has he seen the danger in the allocation of our lands to Fulani for RUGA Settlements as Southeast governors are covertly doing now.

Furthering his risible statement, the Nsukka born saboteur who in Lagos publically pledged to sabotage Biafra struggle said, “Ekweremadu negotiated the sureties and securities for Nnamdi Kanu's release on bail. He does not deserve this picketing and disgrace. A disgrace to him is a disgrace to Igbo race.” Funny how a protest against the docility of a political office holder turns a disgrace to the Igbo race but the invasion of the royal palace of an Igbo traditional ruler, Eze Israel Okwu Kanu, is not a disgrace to the Igbo.  The thinking of the so-called Igbo elite.

The power-drunk Nwodo concluded his pathetic speech with the appeal on German authorities to arrest and prosecute those that protested against one of the chief architects of Python Dance, Senator Ike Ekweremau. Nwodo said, “Whilst I condemn the attack on our revered son and leader, I call on the law enforcement agencies in Germany to bring to book the perpetrators of this despicable act. It is un-Igbo. It is disgraceful.”

Nnia Nwodo wants unarmed civilians arrested simply because they protested against a corrupt and underperforming senator.  Yet in USA protesters blocked President Donald Trump’s way, stoning him with can water and other items. American police neither arrested nor prosecuted anybody. In Germany where the Ekweremadu incident took place and other parts of Western world, the masses protest against their leaders, and nobody gets arrested or prosecuted. That’s because they (the Western world) are civilized. In Nigeria, the army and police shoot unarmed protesters. The comparative difference shows one thing: Nigeria is uncivilized, undemocratic, animalistic and savage. Reason Nigeria is called Zoo – an animal kingdom where even the so-called educated class is beasty in their dealings.

Nnia Nwodo’s call on German police to arrest and prosecute people for demonstrating indignation against corrupt and ineffective political office holders betrays his animalistic nature. He clearly mistook Germany for the Zoo called Nigeria.

Biafra: No IPOB family activist arrested in Ebonyi state - IPOB

IPOB Press Statement
Published by The Biafra Post | 17 Aug. 2019

IPOB Activists protesting against RUGA establishment for the Fulani in Biafra land
Our attention has been drawn to the purported mass arrest of supposed members of IPOB in Ebonyi State by Governor Dave Umahi and his Fulani handlers who mischieviously labeled those they abducted as Biafrans planning an anniversary. This attempt by Dave Umahi to prove to his Fulani masters that he is anti-Biafra and IPOB has led him to round-up and illegally lock up land owners in Ebonyi State under the pretext of fighting Biafra agitators but of which the true intention is to pave the way for Fulani herdsmen to take over community lands for their RUGA settlement in the state.

We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and it's leadership worldwide wish to categorically state that those Dave Umahi claim to have arrested in Ebonyi are not IPOB family members because our movement is not in the habit of celebrating any anniversary either in Biafraland or in the diaspora, since the inception of this great movement. 

It came to us as a surprise to hear the media blast about purported arrest of IPOB family members when we had no event in Ebonyi State that would necessitate the gathering of people on a large scale. Dave Umahi and his Fulani overlords in the Police and Army in Abakiliki have instead engaged in land grabbing arrest of innocent citizens especially indigenes of Amasri in Afikpo LGA of Ebonyi State who were merely strategising on how to protect their land from Fulani terror herdsmen. By tagging these villagers IPOB, Dave Umahi sought to deflect attention from this dastardly act of illicit land grabbing for RUGA going on in Ebonyi State. IPOB do not host events in the bushes or forests, rather we honour our heroes with a general strike on designated days of the year. 

This blatant lie and misinformation sold to the media that IPOB members were arrested in Ebonyi is simply a lie designed to mask the horrors of RUGA implimentation by stealth going on in Ebonyi State and to deflect attention away from secret ethnic cleansing of villages to pave way for Fulani settlements in Ebonyi. 

We are very much aware that Fulani herdsmen wield considerable influence and power in the affairs of governance of Enugu and Ebonyi State but we IPOB are determined to oppose them every step of the way.  Ebonyi and Enugu will never become another conquered Fulani territory not while IPOB is in existence. We shall continue to confront and drive them away wherever we observe them engaged in illegal occupation of ancestral lands.  

Dave Umahi may seek to please his Fulani masters by sacrificing the lives of Ebonyi indigenes but we must warn him that he is moving down a dangerous path that will inevitably consume him and those around him. He is playing a very dangerous game from which he will ne never emerge unscaved.  

Umahi's sworn duty to protect ordinary citizens of Ebonyi State must be his primary duty not to use instruments of state coercion like the army and police to protect Fulani Jihadists and conquerors disguised as Fulani cattle herders because of his slavish allegiance to Sokoto caliphate. He should see and learn from what became of another Igbo Fulani slave Rochas Okorocha who despite having confirmed Hausa blood and years of grovelling devotion to his Fulani masters, is today being dragged from pillar to post and humiliated at every given opportunity by the same masters he devoted his life to. A word is enough for the wise.

COMRADE EMMA POWERFUL 
MEDIA AND PUBLICITY SECRETARY FOR IPOB.

Biafra Genocide Exhibition: Biafra was never an Igbo-only affair - Phillip Efiong Jnr

By Nelson Ofokar Yagazie | Biafra Writers

Phillip Effiong Jr. at the Biafra Genocide Exhibition at Goldsmiths University, London
LONDON: Speaking in the eventful Biafra Genocide Exhibition currently going on at Goldsmiths University, London, Dr Phillip Effiong Jr, the son of former vice president of Biafra, General Phillip Effiong, said that the non-Igbo areas in the Eastern part of Nigeria are Biafrans no doubt. Not only are they Biafrans, Effiong argued, they are well informed on that. Effiong who held a joint interactive session with Tim Modu – the son of Colonel T. C. Modu (Amaldike of Arondizuogu) who was a military Ambassador and International Negotiator for the Government of Biafra, 1967–1970, expressed pains that some people would want to deny their identity because of politics.

Recall that after the war, the Nigerian government then led by Yakubu Gowon, sought to wholesomely destabilize Biafra through the instrumentality of divide and rule. To this end he cut off the non-Igbo speaking areas of Biafra and called them minority groups. Subsequent governments, seeking to perfect the balkanization of Biafra as already set on role by Gowon, gave them a new identity – South-South.

The divide and rule tactics of the Nigerian state against the Biafra seems to have worked out perfectly, for many a people from the non-Igbo parts of Biafra deny the Biafra identity in order to curry political favour from the federal government. Even some Igbos – the likes of Nnia Nwodo and the lost soul in Lagos, Joe Igbokwe – spite Biafra for crumbs from their Fulani master’s table.

However Dr. Phillip Effiong Jr has reiterated that the so-called South-South region is Biafra, stressing that those who claim otherwise do so for selfish reasons. Effiong who was reacting to a call from a certain woman for him (Effiong) to teach the so-called South-South their history as some of them say they are not part of Biafra, said “they know their history; they know they are Biafrans. Those that say they are not part of Biafra are saying that because they have their own agenda like politics.”

Speaking further, the aggrieved son of a General said, “There is oil in my land, but what has it done for me and my family? Nothing! Not one cent of it helps the people in those lands. What does anyone get from Nigeria? Nothing … because they have a special hatred for Biafrans.”
