The Nigerian military has declared the pro-Biafra separatist group, IPOB, a “terrorist organisation.”

The military made the declaration in a statement on Friday by the Director of Defence Information, John Enenche.

Clashes between soldiers on a military operation and IPOB members in Abia State have left several people wounded. Although there have been reports of deaths particularly of IPOB members, none has been confirmed.

IPOB and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu are campaigning for an independent country of Biafra made up of ethnic Igbos. Although they had said their campaign was non-violent, Mr. Kanu said this week that that stance would be reviewed, accusing the military of attacking unharmed members of his organisation.

PREMIUM TIMES also reported how the police in Abia State blamed IPOB for the burning of a police station in Aba, where a dusk to dawn curfew has since been imposed.

In his statement, Mr. Enenche, a major general, listed five reasons the military considered for labelling IPOB a terror group.

These include “The formation of a Biafra Secret Service, claimed formation of Biafra National Guard, unauthorised blocking of public access roads; extortion of money from innocent civilians at illegal road blocks, and militant possession and use of weapons (stones, molotov cocktails, machetes and broken bottles among others) on a military patrol on 10 September 2017.”

Read the military’s full statement below.

PUBLIC AWARENESS ON THE STATE OF INDEPENDENT PEOPLE OF BIAFRA

1. The Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) group which has posed to be a security challenge in the Country, has been metamorphosing from one stage to the other. After due professional analysis and recent developments, it has become expedient, to notify the general public that; the claim by IPOB actors that the organization is non-violent is not true. Hence, the need to bring to public awareness the true and current state of IPOB. In this regard, some of their actions, clandestinely and actively, that has been terrorising the general public among others include;

a. The formation of a Biafra Secret Service.

b. Claimed formation of Biafra National Guard.

c. Unauthorised blocking of public access roads.

d. Extortion of money from innocent civilians at illegal road blocks.

e. Militant possession and use of weapons (stones, molotov cocktails, machetes and broken bottles among others) on a military patrol on 10 September 2017.

f. Physical confrontation of troops by Nnamdi Kanu and other IPOB actors at a check point on 11 September 2017 and also attempts to snatch their rifles.

g. Attack by IPOB members, on a military check point on 12 September 2017, at Isialangwa, where one IPOB actor attempted to snatch a female soldier’s rifle.

3. From the foregoing, the Armed Forces of Nigeria wishes to confirm to the general public that IPOB from all intent, plan and purpose as analysed, is a militant terrorist organisation. Therefore, parents and particularly unsuspecting residents of the South East and other Nigerians should advice their wards to desist from joining the group.

4. The Defence Headquarters restates its commitment to handling all the security challenges in the Country and further assures all Nigerians of the protection of lives and property.

      THE NIGERIAN ARMY HAS NO RIGHT TO DECLARE TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS, WE ARE NOT IN MILITARY RULE.It is rather the job of the Nigerian government to do so and it must be backed by legislature. BURATAI IS AN ILLITERATE WHO DOES NOT KNOW HIS JOB DESCRIPTION.

      • Amir

        So in your useless skull the Nigerian Army is not part of the Nigerian Government? They are Togolese? Anuofia nwulu anwu, na esi isi ka nkapia.

            Rubbish!!!

  • Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan

    Infact! Nigeria military authority, appears to be moving too slow before realizing the extent of terror group IPOD, is that they will be dealing with.More deep-research needs to be conducted by the Nigeria military authority and Defense headquarters on IPOD and its leader,Nnamdi Kanu, a jobless deportee from London, UK, as all Igbo-financiers and supporters of IPOD, should be identify by the military authority in order to know and understand the nature of terrorism represents by IPOD that Nigeria military is dealing with.All sponsors and financiers, of IPOD must be unearth and monitor all round the clock.Also, IPOD leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who left UK. for Nigeria, in order to propagate the cause of Biafra movement, must be re arrested and put away for peace and stability to rein in the country.The military, should note this down that Igbo-IPOD, has been importing weapons from Turkey, to fight Nigeria military.

  • Gary

    Under which law or authority is the Nigerian Army empowered to declare any group or body a “terrorist organization”? Has the Army seized power and overthrown the elected government of the Nigerian people in imperiously issuing this declaration?

    What has become of the National Assembly and why has its leadership chosen to postpone its resumption instead of actually convening in emergency session to address the slide to anarchy that Buhari and Nnamdi Kanu, two uneducated ethnic rabble rousers, are now taking Nigeria?
    Speaker Dogara, Senator Saraki, are you party to the military takeover of the country under the guise of fighting IPOB?
    You will all surely answer for roles if you allow the malevolent forces to kill the Fourth Republic.

    Buhari is still senseless, which means he has not yet regained his senses. How can he declare IPOB islamic terrorist when IPOB is not even an islamic organization? Ba hankali Imam Buhari.

This means Buhari supports them. Nonsense

      As the Buhari government deceives itself that Nigeria has exited recession,
      the country’s economy worsens irreparably into a rot. Yesterday First Bank of Nigeria
      reportedly retrenched over 1,000 bank workers and threw them all into the sinking sea
      of massive un-employment to join a throng of 28 million un-employed youths acknowledged
      by the Buhari government as at June 2017. All fresh graduates from universities and those
      from teachers training institutes and polytechnics, who finish their compulsory N.Y.S.C
      national service are expcted to swell that figure toward a staggering 30 million mark.
      Little by little the fumbling Buhari government pushes Nigeria to a shattering fall.

          Biafra is a democratic country where rule of Law is supreme , Don’t claim to be strong while you are not , Attacking armless civilian doesn’t make you strong but weak , Go and defeat Boko haram first by then you can be taking serious . Self determination is the right of indigenous people so your python dance is an act of denying them their right which is against the law. Did you now see that your country is lawless entity where your govt disrespect the law itself . IPOB is legitimate and they have case in Nigeria court so why using show of force ? are you trying to intimidate them with your useless and laughable python dance that suppose to be dancing in Sambisa forest ?

          THISDAY NEWSPAPER

          BIAFRA! BIAFRA!! BIAFRA!!!

          July 4, 2017

          By Ike Ekweremadu

          “We know very well that the toad does not run in the daytime for nothing; if it is not after something, then something must be after it. Although Nigeria is not new to agitations of all kinds, the nation has of recent been caught in a cacophony of agitations by different groups and sections of the country. In particular, these agitations have been most pronounced in the South-east, where the activities of various pro-Biafra groups have been most pronounced. There have also been loud and well-meaning voices in the South-east and all over the country strongly canvassing a restructuring of the country.

          All these point to the fact that there is widespread dissatisfaction over how Nigeria is presently constituted and run. The South-east region, in particular, has, no doubt, been at the worst receiving end of the structural imbalances with ripples of disequilibrium in the distribution of resources and opportunities since the end of the civil war in 1970. This, as we know, are at the root of the disquiet and agitation by various groups for a sovereign state of Biafra.

          Although the Biafra agitation has been with us even during the regimes of former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Yar’Adua, and Goodluck Jonathan, it was managed, through tact and semblance of inclusiveness. Thus, after Ralph Uwazulike’s arrest and release from detention by the Yar’Adua administration, the agitation withered greatly. It was even much less noticeable under the Jonathan Administration because the South-east was given a greater sense of belonging.

          Therefore, the renewed and aggravated agitations across the South-east, the hero status of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the growing pro-Biafra sentiments in the South-east, and the widespread feelings of alienation and disgust with the Nigerian project since after the 2015 general election can be traced to the mistreatment of the region, which graduated from marginalization to exclusion, based on the 97 percent and 5 percent policy of the present administration.

          However, while our people have every reason to be aggrieved and the right to vent their frustrations and seek equity and justice by democratic and non-violent means, we should also not allow our emotions to rule over our reasoning. As our people say, it will not be good to hear that the she-goat delivered in tether when elders are at home. Questions would eventually be asked. History would inquire if no elder was at home when the toad put to bed and the baby toad grew up a puffed creature because no one cared to stretch its hands or legs.

          There are two major opinions as to the way forward for Ndigbo at a trying time like this. We have mostly the younger generation, who believe they have had enough of the Nigerian union, which they have described in unprintable terms. The other is restructuring, which seems to appeal more to the older generation.

          Legal Issues

          Beyond sentiments, it needs to be emphasised that Nigeria is a sovereign state, with a defined territory recognised by the international community. She is a member of the United Nations (UN), African Union (AU), and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), among others. This territory includes the South-east region.

          While the right to self-determination is guaranteed under the international systems, specifically the United Nations and African Union, this right has laid down procedures that must be religiously followed. For instance, while the call for referendum is legal; they do not come by fiat. Referendum is the ultimate result of wide and long negotiations, consultations, and processes involving the international community as we have seen in the cases of Scotland in the United Kingdom, Catalonia in Spain, Quebec in Canada, and recently in Puerto Rico as well as the successful secession of East Timor from Indonesia, Eritrea from Ethiopia, and South Sudan from Sudan.

          Unless these due processes are observed, as in the case of Eritrea, East Timor, and South Sudan, such enclaves will not be recognised as sovereign states by the international community. I have followed incisive arguments on this matter and looked at the history of other secessionist efforts in other parts of the world. For example, about 43 years after it broke away from Cyprus in 1974, with the help of the Turkish Army, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (Northern Cyprus) is yet to be recognised as a sovereign nation by any nation because of lack of due process. The citizens can only travel with the passport of Turkey as citizens of Turkey, not Northern Cyprus. Today, there is widespread agitation by citizens of North Cyprus to be rejoined to Cyprus.

          There is also the case of Somaliland. Almost three decades after it declared itself a sovereign state from the Federal Republic of Somalia, the best the self-declared Republic (British Somaliland) has achieved is recognition as an autonomous state, but still part of Somalia in spite of the fact that Somalia is a failed state.

          We also have the Russia-backed breakaway Eastern Ukraine, which still uses the Ukrainian international passport and currency, several years after. It does not matter that it is backed by Russia, a world super power.

          In the Caucasus, the breakaway South Ossetia and Abkazia from Georgia are only recognised by Russia more than 10 years after. They can only travel as Russian citizens with Russian international passport. The international community still recognises them as citizens of Georgia.

          Political Considerations

          Ndigbo also need to understand both the local and international political tides and sentiments to be able to make the right choices because the considerations for self-determination go beyond just the South-east.

          Already, extreme utterances and actions by some key elements in the agitation for Biafra are taking tolls on our goodwill, friendship, and the sympathy we enjoy. Insults hurled at religious and political leaders of other regions are not helping us, politically.

          Today, discordant tunes over the boundaries or territories of a prospective sovereign State of Biafra is growing in proportions with the hard wickets hurled at our neigbours and compatriots.

          Indeed, as things stand today, the greater part of South-south region have continued to discountenance the idea of Biafra, perhaps, for these utterances or fear of becoming a minority within another sovereign state.

          Only recently, the Governor of Rivers State was in Sokoto to reiterate that the people of Rivers State are rather in support of a restructured Nigeria, not a sovereign state of Biafra. Similarly, the people of Delta State have reiterated that Delta State, including the Anioma cultural zone, which is Igbo, will not be part of Biafra.

          The truth is, times have changed, and so have political interests because 1967 is different from 2017. So much water has passed under the bridge and we have to be realistic.

          Economic Implications

          As I earlier said, there is serious clamour for Northern Cyprus to rejoin Cyprus. Beside the frustrations from isolation, the economy is also at the heart of it. The Monday, June 26, 2017 edition of UK’s newspaper, The Telegraph estimates that the reunification of the tiny island could boost its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by GBP5 Billion.

          South-east’s political future should therefore be put in context of its economic interest and survival. The Igbos have larger chunk of their investments outside the South-east. Our people have invested heavily in every nook and cranny of Nigeria. They are into trading. Imagine a situation where a Republic of Biafra would have to depend on Nigerian passports to travel out.

          Importantly, as I mentioned earlier, we are not certain that the South-south will go with the Biafra idea. And in the event that they do not, what are our options for economic survival? Flowing from this, what guarantee do we have for international support if the main oil bearing region pulls out, knowing that no nation is a Santa Claus?

          Social Considerations

          Nigeria has never been as divided as it is today. The hate rhetoric is getting worse by the day. Parting ways under such level of bitterness could be risky to the investments and lives of the South Easterners. Realistically speaking, is it possible that all Ndigbo living in the other parts of Nigeria, many of whom were born and bred outside Igbo land, and have been well assimilated by their host communities will return home? Many have never visited home and do not even speak Igbo language. Can we realistically expect those who have their investments in other parts of Nigeria to willingly abandon them and head home?

          Although international systems seek to guarantee the security of lives of peoples and their properties on either side of the divides, should there be a self-determination process that leads to the emergence of a new nation, such guarantees are not absolute and difficult to enforce, especially in a society such as ours. The quit notice and hate spewed by the Arewa youth to Ndigbo point to the fact that all is not well. And it calls for caution because the mother hen does not run without looking back to know the fate of her chicks.

          Right template for Restructuring

          The other option left for us is a restructured federation. Ndigbo need to develop and market what it believes to be the right template for restructuring. The Eastern Region was rated the fastest growing economy in Africa in the First Republic because the regions were relatively autonomous; resources were largely developed and controlled by the regions.

          I believe Ndigbo will thrive, probably more than other regions, under a federal structure that guarantees substantial autonomy, justice, equity, security, and prosperity for Ndigbo wherever they live.

          What we need is a federalism where each constituent part fends for itself to promote industry. We need a federal arrangement that guarantees and allows every constituent state or region to be primarily in charge of its aspirations and preferences to catalyse competitive development. We need a mutually agreed arrangement that allows every component to take charge of the security of lives and properties of citizens through decentralised policing, while the Federal Government takes care of defending our territorial integrity. We need a federal arrangement where the best excel, and does not have to be sacrificed in the name of federal character. We need a restructured federation where the Igbo man or woman, and indeed, every Nigerian can live and ply his or her business without any form of discrimination, molestation, and destruction of his or her life and property on the flimsiest excuses. Igbos should be better off in a federation where they freely exercise their democratic rights without being hounded and killed by security forces. We need a federal structure that guarantees smart and efficient government. And I believe these are possible if the leaders and constituent parts of the nation come to the table with sincerity of purpose. We should push for that, please.

          Way forward

          (i) Going forward, we need to set up a committee for a continuous engagement and moderation of IPOB, other pro-Biafra organisations and their leaders to avoid hate speeches and reckless statements that will make us lose our friends and sympathisers.

          (ii) We need to send a team of South-east leaders to have yet another meeting with the Presidency, this time to tell them, in clear terms, the need to address the fears and complaints about marginalisation of the people of the South-east by this government, which is fueling the agitation in our region. Government needs to take concrete steps and demonstrate commitment in addressing the said complaints. This will help the South-east leaders to manage the restiveness.

          (iii) The Igbos must continue to emphasise restructuring, which is presently enjoying acceptance by the South-south, South-west, Northern-central, and well meaning people from other parts of the North. I believe that at the discussion table for restructuring, we will have sufficient allies that will enable us extract a good bargain for a just and equitable society, where we will, no doubt, excel. Ndigbo need a bigger space to operate. In fact, Nigeria as a country is even a small space for the enterprising spirit of the Igbo, hence our people are scattered all over Africa and are capable of dominating the economic space.

          (iv) We need to send delegations to different entities of the North, especially Sokoto, Kaduna, Kano, Maiduguri, Adamawa, Katsina, Bauchi, Gombe, Jigawa, among others, to engage the respective governors and top traditional rulers and clerics who will also help to moderate the utterances and actions of the Northern youth. These, I believe, will secure the lives and properties of our people all over the north and avoid their possible mass movement ahead of the October deadline contained in the threat by the Northern youth.

          (v) We need to send another delegation to meet with the Chief of Defence Staff, Inspector-General of Police, National Security Adviser, and the Director-General of the Department of State Security to express our concern over the safety of the lives and properties of our people living in the North and to urge them to take every necessary step to protect them.

          Finally, whatever choices we make, we must not allow ourselves to be ruled by our emotions, but by reasoning. The same tree stump does not trip a wise man twice. We must learn from the past and act wisely and decisively. Likewise, we must endeavour to present our demands in a civilized manner and in a language that is cognizant of other people’s sensibilities, not in a provocative or rancorous manner.”

          NOTE:
          Senator Ekweremadu is the Deputy President of the Senate, and delivered this address at the meeting of South-east governors, National Assembly, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and Igbo leaders on political developments

      Really?
      Only 4 months into Buhari’s presidency, at World Igbo Congress 2015 In Los Angeles Nnamdi Kanu solicited guns to fight Nigeria.

      He said:
      “…so we need guns and bullets from you people in America…..on the 22nd of this month something will happen it’s called the blood moon…, in ’67 before the war started there was a blood moon as well and there is blood moon this year because after this year we are going to be free no matter what happens because if we don’t get Biafra EVERYBODY will have to DIE, as simple as that…”

      His group IPOB eventually launched in Nigeria, holding rallies. So, how do you define a terrorist group?

Now headless Imam Buhari plans to be enjoying himself in New York at UN when Major Bala ibn Mohammed will declare him wanted. His cup is getting full, dullard.

  • GeeWhiz

    The Nigerian military cannot truly discern the spontaneous reaction of people to military oppression. Driving armoured personnel carriers into residential areas without any iota of armed insurrection and attempting to tackle security “challenges” that constitutionally fall under the police.

    – Did they check the IDs of people at the check point and found them to be card carrying members of IPOB who were given instructions by the IPOB leader?

    – Anybody can mouth off and say that they are forming a “Biafran secret service”. Saying something does not equate to terrorism, action equates to terrorism. What has the so-called Biafran secret service done? Did they strap 10-year old children with bombs to attack people like their Boko Haram compatriots?

    Bottom line, Nigeria as presently constituted is a fraud! The Igbos have nothing in common with the Hausas – they do not speak the same language, do not share the same cultures and traditions, do not have the same religion, etc. A simple referendum will make it the people’s decision instead of Fraud Lugard’s decision.

  • Excisionist

    “WHAT ABOUT BUHARI’S FULANI HERDSMEN”

    Since Buharis ascendancy to presidency, Fulani herders have been emboldened further. After causing mayhem and devastation in the Middle Belt, they have now moved down to the South-South and South-East and South-West where they are unleashing their animals to destroy farms and at the same time maiming raping and destroying live and property with impunity. Has the army been deployed against them? No.

    Fulani herdsmen are the greatest threat to lives and property nation wide but the army has never been deployed against them to protect Nigerians. At Agatu in North Central military helicopters were ordered to drop weapons and uniforms to Fulani terrorists while the population was being decimated. The army never intervened then or after. Why? Because the army and other security agencies are being controlled by Islamic terrorists.

    According to the Global Terrorism Index, Fulani militants were the fourth deadliest terrorist group in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, using machine guns and attacks on villages to assault and intimidate farmers.

    Has the army declared them a terrorist organization? No, no and no

    The army has not been deployed against the so called Northern youth forum or against the myriad of Islamic terrorists in the North east and north west who constantly attack non-Muslims (particularly Christians), kill them and destroy their churches and property. Jihadists in the army constantly expose their colleagues to ambushes during operations against Boko Haram Islamic terrorists.

    But this is an opportunity to get rid of him and this evil regime. The military should take note, especially the Christian rank and file from North Central, South west, South-south and South-east. Do not stand by and watch because the same thing will happen to your own folks wherever they are. Take note of the following

    “First they came for the Jewsand I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.”
    By Pastor Martin Niemoller (1892–1984)

    • Rumournaire

      How does your state deal with AK47-wielding armed robbers? Does your governor call the President to come and help deal with them? How are AK47-wielding herdsmen different? If your state government is lazy and is unable to learn from the likes of Ekiti State, then wake up your governor! The President has responsibility for the territorial integrity of the country, which is why he deals ruthlessly with Boko Haram in the North East and could deal ruthlessly with IPOB. Those two organisations declared war on the country. State governments have responsibility for their states!

      At World Igbo Congress 2015 In Los Angeles Nnamdi Kanu solicited guns to fight Nigeria. He said:

      “…so we need guns and bullets from you people in America…..on the 22nd of this month something will happen it’s called the blood moon…, in ’67 before the war started there was a blood moon as well and there is blood moon this year because after this year we are going to be free no matter what happens because if we don’t get Biafra EVERYBODY will have to DIE, as simple as that…”

      If you were Nigeria’s president, how would you deal with an organisation within your country that goes outside the country to mobilise funds and arms to fight the country? Throw a party for them? What kinds of people do you think United States sends to Guatanamo Bay? What kinds of people “disappear” in Russia and China?

      My friend, get some education and quit biggotry!

  • Smartly the NA pushed its way into streets in Abia, and expecting the not-so-smart Kanu to react by throwing Molotov cocktails and bottles which are classified as weapons. The NA initiated a provocation in its territory because all Nigeria is its territory. Now Mr. Kanu has been cornered and caged. One violent move in the open, he will be gunned down as a terrorist that he is.

      reportedly retrenched over 1,000 bank workers and threw them all into the sinking sea
      of massive un-employment to join a throng of 28 million un-employed youths acknowledged
      by the Buhari government as at June 2017. All fresh graduates from universities and those
      from teachers training institutes and polytechnics, who finish their compulsory N.Y.S.C
      national service are expcted to swell that figure toward a staggering 30 million mark.
      Little by little the fumbling Buhari government pushes Nigeria to a shattering fall.

      What’s your thought on that? Isn’t that justice?

    time they commit crime with their hired/purchased planes the world knows. When they commit crimes against humanity or violate civilians and lie about it the world knows the truth. Their hired/purchased tanks, planes, communication equipment, even the cameras they are carrying are bugged by the manufactures. They can no longer lie to the world that they are defending themselves from aggressive civilians. Their sins are open to the world gaze and speculation.

The Blood of the Igbo can easily be spilled with impunity and nothing happens. While the Igbos have genuine reasons to cry for injustice, oppression and marginalization just like other Nigerians apart from the core North, let us fight for redress without secession or bloodshed.
    Meanwhile, any Herdsman caught carrying AK-47 or any dangerous weapon should be declared a terrorist too. No partiality.

    The South-Eastern Governors have taken the right steps to pronounced their real stands against the Islamic and “sunnis jihadis” brand of Islamic dominated Nigeria military;-(all promoted to general higher ranks positions were based on Islamic religion critrias and not by merits grounds). The internal Minister, Danbazzau is the kingpin and brain behind the entire Islamic dominated Nigerian military of today together with evil Boko Haram oragnisation formation that were all aims to destroyed all “Christians infidels” of Nigeria nation. Saudi Arabians are in-charged of promoting Islamic dominance in whole of Africa and Nigeria is a country the Saudis wants to first dominate before all other African countries, because Nigeria is the most bigger and populous nation in the horns of the whole Africa. Besides, former Military president Babangida borrowed billions of dollars from Islamic organisation during his evil days of his administration 1985-1993 years. It was that very outsanding debts that most Nigerians are not aware up till date. Therefore, the real hidden agenda of Nigerian military for python Dance 2 operations in the South-east regions is to try to decapacitated “Christians infidels” of the whole of Nigeria. Because, the kind of military hard-wares that were been displayed in the south-east region by the Islamic dominated Nigerian military was by far too lesser to the same amount of such weapons hard-wares deployed against North-east evil and blood-sucking group of Boko Haram. This goes to shows that the Nigerian Islamic dominated Military are nursing the worst hatreds against Nigerian “Christians infidels” or unbelievers of Nigerians. The real truth which ought to be told boldly is that the Nigerian Islamic dominated Military main only aims is to try and kills all those dirty and “pig meats” eaters christians infidels or unbelievers of the whole of Nigeria under the cover of IPOB agitators, who has had never voted Buhari presidential elections in 2015 year. In Europe we are rubbing minds with Christians organisations to support Nnamdi Kanu IPOB even though I am from Southern Kaduna where El-Rufai Islamic extremist governorship is using Islamic Nigerian police and Army in claiming that they were fulanis herdmen carrying out attacks in Southern Kaduna indigens/citizens, because they are Christians infidels that all deserves to be killed inside Kaduna.

      BRAINLESS BUHARI & APC ARE JUST STEALING PUBLIC FUNDS THROUGH THEIR INFANTILE “GRAGRA” TO JUSTIFY THE DEFENSE & SECURITY BUDGETS THEY ALLOCATED FOR THEMSELVES.

      MEANWHILE THE GOVS. POSITION IS YET ANOTHER REASON IPOB MUST STOP VOTING FOR ANY ANY POLITICIANS STARTING WITH ANAMBRA STATE…

      IN HONOR OF ASSASSINATED IPOB MEMBERS NO BIAFRANS SHOULD VOTE IN FUTURE ELECTIONS UNTIL A REFERENDUM

      Because YOU cant be TRUSTED!!!!!!!! KANU is a CURSE on the IGBOs. KANU has single handedly destroyed the lives and careers of IGBOs in Nigeria. Wonder if the IGBOs can ever recover from this.They are the most hated group in Nigeria.
