To Nigeria News Editors August 17, 2017.
The Directorate of State of the Indigenous People of Biafra under the leadership of OnyenduMaziNnamdiKanu has deemed it expedient

 to draw the attention of all Newspaper editor in Nigeria and the world at large of a deliberate trend to misrepresent facts as it concerns the activities of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB).

The Directorate therefore considers it very imperative to address this letter to Editors of all Media Houses in Nigeria to set the records straight.

Let me begin with the agitation by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for Self-determination. Please take note that Self-determination is an inalienable right of all Indigenous People and that includes the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of OnyenduMaziNnamdiKanu.

The United Nations chatter not only guaranteed Indigenous People the right to Self-determination but also an immutable right to determine their cultural, economic and political system.

We derive therefore the authority for our agitation on universally recognized and binding legal instruments such as United Nations Declaration on the Rights of the Indigenous peoples to Self-Determination and Articles V, VI, VII and XII of the African Charter on Human & Peoples Rights (ratified and domesticated by Nigeria in 1983).

From the foregoing it is very apparent that Self-determination does not in any manner or form equate to a declaration of war on the Nigerian state but simply a legitimate and universally recognized and guaranteed right at the disposal of all Indigenous people to pursue.

Secondly the demand by the Indigenous People of Biafra for Referendum rather than being vilified for adopting a non-violent avenue in our pursuit of Self-determination right should be commended for choosing a universally recognized and accepted methodology of dispute resolution.

Finally the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has never clashed with the Nigerian security apparatus in all our activities be it prayer gathering in school fields or spreading the message of Biafra on the streets of Biafraland.

It is essential therefore to once again remind Nigeria News Editors that IPOB is a non-violent movement of the Biafra people. The constant use of the word clash each time innocent unarmed Biafrans are killed is unacceptable to us.

Just yesterday the 16th of August 2917 unarmed IPOB family members were attacked by a combined force of Nigeria army and Police in EkwulobiaAnambra state without provocation as they have been doing since 2015 resulting in the death of at least one person and many injured. In reporting this incident the word “clash” was again used.

This is misleading and an affront to the ethics of journalism. It is our considered view that Editors have the responsibility and the duty to report accurately what transpired each time innocent civilian lives are wasted by trigger happy security agencies.

The Directorate of state of the Indigenous People of Biafra states categorically and unequivocally that there was no clash between the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) and Nigeria security agencies in Ekwulobia yes
In fact there has never been any clash between IPOB and the security agencies not even with our bare hands because we are a non-violent peaceful movement and do not bear arms.
This penchant bordering on mischief to always present the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as confrontational and thereby giving the impression that they often clash with the security agencies each time innocent and unarmed Biafrans gather peacefully in the exercise of their fundamental right to freedom of association and of assembly strengthens the hands of the security agencies to continue in their impunity.

It seems to us that Newspaper editors in Nigeria have made a deliberate and conscious decision to abet the human rights violations and crimes against humanity being constantly perpetrated by the Nigeria Army, Nigeria Police and the Nigeria secret police (SSS) against the non-violent movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra peacefully exercising their right to Self-determination.

We use this medium to draw your attention and that of the International community that the style of news reportage by Nigeria print and electronic media as well as the quality of journalism in Nigeria is geared towards aiding and abating extra judicial killings of unarmed innocent civilians in Nigeria.
The world must hold Nigeria news Editors responsible for this aberration and regard them as accessory to human rights violations and crimes against humanity being committed against the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)

  1. Nigeria news editors are guilty of war crimes against any unarmed civilians killed by security forces due to their deliberate wrong portrayal of unarmed peaceful protesters as people committing treason. They have been bought over by bloodsucking Nigerian government by plain deceit telling them that Nigeria fake unity is non negotiable so any contrary view should be crushed.

  2. i am giving a testimony on how i become rich and famous today… i was deeply
    strangled up by poverty and i had no body to help me, and also i search for
    help from different corners but to know invail. i see people around me getting
    rich but to me i was so ashamed of my self so i met a man on my way he was
    very rich and he was a doctor so he told me something and i think over it
    though out the day so the next day i looked up and i keep repeating what he
    said to me. ” if you want to get rich quick and be famous” you need to
    cross your heart and do what is in your mind so i tried all i could in
    other for me to do as he said so later on i told my fellow friend about
    this same thing then my friend was interested in my suggestions so i
    decided to look in the internet and i found an email address so we decided to contact them and
    unfortunately we did as they instruct us to do and later they told us to
    get some requirements and all the rest… so this initiation took us just a
    week and later on the great fraternity gave us $50,000.00 USD to start up
    our lives…. and now am testifying that if in any case you want to join any
    great fraternity all you need to do is for you to contact them because they
    are legitimate and they do as what they instructed them to do okay so email
    them now at ( call me +2347060507634 or
