Biafra: Mazi Anyi Kings Writes Open Letter To Institute For Economic And Peace(IEP), Global Terrorism Index(GTI) For Wrongfully Tagging IPOB

Written By Mazi Anyi Kings | Biafra Reporter

January 26, 2023  | The Biafra Post 

It has gotten to my attention as an investigative journalist how the above listed institutions wrongfully tagged / mentioned the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in the same spreadsheet bearing the names of dreaded terrorist groups in their terrorism index report exempting the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria also known as the Fulani herdsmen, reason I have to officially call them and their attention to order. 

This open letter is to draw the attention of Institute For Economic And Peace  (IEP) and Global Terrorism Index(GTI) on the errors found in their hundred (100) pages documents and report of 2022 terrorism index.

Sir/Madam, your organizations, Institute For Economic and Peace (IEP) also known as Global Terrorism Index (GTI) is an organization known for its transparency since the organization nine years of existence. Therefore I am one among the over one billions citizens of the world populations that revere this organization's reports in the last eight years hence I found it necessary to express and register my dissatisfactions on the enormous errors found out in your organization 2022 report record.

After a careful study of your one hundred book pages report of 2022, I became very suspicious of the entire report when I came across your number sixth (6th) country of the world terrorists most affected or impacted Nation which Nigeria was placed in a distance sixth (6th) position. 

It is worthy to note that if your agents/researcher(s) that were assigned to study and analyze terrorists attacks of 2022 in Nigeria did their jobs independently without any iota of government interference or lobbying to  release a pro government sponsored report then note that your organization the global communities hold in high regards in terms of transparency and moral reputation wouldn't have dared to release such a distasteful and disgraceful report that is full of enormous errors or open biasness. 

In my elaborate study and careful analysis of your hundred (100) book pages report of 2022, I found out that there are no basis that a peaceful movement of global repute and international standard like the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that has its presence with physical offices registered all over the world conducting themselves under the best international principles and practices as a freedom fighting movement with a clear mission statement that demands for a separate independent nation of Biafra from the terrorist Nigeria controlled federal government would be listed side to side with a terrorist badge in disguise.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are demanding for a separate nation of theirs' through a democratic process called a referendum without any record(s) of violence attached to the movement locally and internationally as no law court of competent jurisdiction has ever convicted any of its members for any crime known to law in Nigeria and both in diaspora; despite government sponsored media blackmailing to dent the organization's hard earned good reputation and records locally and internationally.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have become the victims of the most oppressed, killed, maimed and subjugated group of people in Nigeria since 1945, 1953, 1966, 1967-1970 till date. Biafrans suffers all manners of ill treatments, blackmails illegal and indiscriminate arrest /detention, locked up in solitary confinement, faced with extra judicial killings, forceful disappearance of my people from the public and to cap it all the Nigeria government was indicted in the extraordinary rendition case involving our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, of which your organization ought to know that the Nigeria government committed an international crime of unlawfully kidnapping a British citizen by naturalization and all these were not mentioned in your hundred pages 2022 report to the satisfaction of those that bought your conscience to become bias in your report sheet; reason being that they do not like the movement's ideology and quest for freedom.

It is worthy to note that Nigeria is a country that its history and historical records started from and under the colonial rule as a British government creation through a forceful Amalgamation of the North and the South by British government arrangement of 1914. Therefore Biafrans under the umbrella of IPOB freedom movement has every inalienable right to make a legitimate demand for self-determination without any restrictions or conditions attached to this set goal, reason being that self-determination is a universally accepted law.

Though there is a logical argument that despite the mention of Indigenous People of Biafra in your organization's hundred pages 2022 reports there is no evidence or proof that your report has designated nor tag the Indigenous People of Biafra a terrorist group.  

But, facts remains that the mention of IPOB in your 2022 report is a pro government sponsored report and there are wider believes that your organization GTI or its agents has cash in millions of dollars if not billions to betray your good reputation that your organization has earned over the years and finally succumbed to the corrupt government of Nigeria money enticement to do their bidding in order to justify their black market illegal terrorists tag on IPOB as a freedom movement and to criminally legitimize the continuous suppression of Biafrans quest for self-determination which is already in a world class discourse. 

This particular argument are made more convincing when your organization GTI placed Nigeria to a distance sixth 6th position as a world terrorists most affected or impacted nation without a detailed reports of Fulani terrorists attacks against indigenous people in Nigeria of which 90% of both state and none state actors attacks in Nigeria are being aided and abetted by the state actors the federal government of Nigeria and her state governments for their selfish political gains at the detriment of the led. 

One of the examples is the unknown gunmen in the South East of Nigeria also known as Biafra land. The Unknown gunmen activities are well oiled and sponsored by the Nigeria government and South East politicians that openly and in secret disagrees with the Indigenous People of Biafra's freedom ideology and the quest for a total separate Nation of independent state of Biafra from Nigeria.

Their intentions are simple which is to sell false narratives and also to create a damaged impression before the global communities that IPOB are violent group which will probably scare people of conscience and goodwill away that might be interested to be on the side of truth to which IPOB as a movement represent, the blackmailing is to force people to withdraw their moral and financial support to our quest for freedom. 

Hence the many stage managed attacks of the so called Unknown gunmen which are falsely media hyped under the umbrella of a Biafra group to give an impression that IPOB is behind such terrorist and devilish attacks against the innocent citizens but that is very far from the Truth. Nigeria is a west Africa country in which the core handlers of the government of the center are populated with none indigenous tribe known as  the pastoral Fulanis that are known for their numerous religious extremism and ethnic cleansing in Nigeria. 

The Fulani government of Nigeria has over the years used their domineering governmental power to subdue all other ethnicities in Nigeria to silence, while their political elites sponsors Islamic religious extremists the likes of Boko Haram, ISWAP, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria also known as the Fulani herdsmen with the sole intention for ethnic cleansing and land grabbing from indigenous owners of Nigeria unchallenged that has continue to generate and escalate crises and insecurities across the length and breadth of Nigeria of which a catalogue of Fulani herdsmen documented attacks for the year 2022 are included in this open letter for your perusal.

These reports and detailed documents of Fulani herdsmen attacks are made available from independent reporters and it is very well visible with availability of thousands if not millions of victims of Fulani herdsmen attacks across Nigeria, the people are ever ready to testify as villages and towns rampage, maimed, killed including groups and organization like Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN). Christian Association of Nigeria has organized protests after protests in the year 2022 against Fulani herdsmen invasion of villages, farms , churches, schools etc. 

I am very surprised and highly disappointed that an organization of international repute like yours the global terrorists Index GTI released your 2022 report without any mention of  Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria /Fulani herdsmen, a     world fourth 4th most deadliest terrorist organization that operates in Nigeria with impunity that even has the current President of Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari as its patron. 

One can convincingly agree that by virtue of ignoring Fulani herdsmen in your report and to be quick in highlighting the name of spotless IPOB in the list of your terrorists Index is not just errors in your reports but a deliberate bias report to cash in from the corrupt government of Nigeria that are known for its sponsor of terrorists and state pardon of terrorist enlisted in the Nigeria armed forces.

I would advise that your organization GTI kindly re-visit the following links for news reports in Nigeria concerning the Fulani herdsmen attacks across Nigeria in 2022 alone and, then for the sake of millions of global communities that believe in your  annual work and analysis, GTI as an organization should kindly address the highlighted points raised in this open letter for your organization reputation sake
