The Nigerian musician, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, has condemned the deployment of soldiers to the hometown of controversial separatist leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Charly Boy, leader of the ‘OurMumuDonDo’ movement said the federal government should be more worried about safeguarding lives and properties than destroying it.

He said this in a statement signed by him, Adeyanju Deji, leader of Concerned Nigerians and Adebayo Raphael, Publicity Secretary, OurMumuDonDo Movement.

The statement further explained that the people of Abia State deserved better than unnecessary disturbances in the city.

“The good people of Abia State deserve better than the undue panic under which they have been placed since the invasion which has completely restricted them from going about their daily activities freely like they used to.”

The movement urged the federal government to promote peace and unity instead of raising tension brewing hatred for one another in the country.

“Finally, we appeal to the Federal Government to be more circumspect and solution-focused in handling sensitive matters as secessionist agitations within the country. ”

This is coming days after soldiers raided Mr. Kanu’s hometown, reportedly injuring many in the process hence forcing the Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, to declare a three-day dusk to dawn curfew in Aba, the commercial centre of the state.

Charly Boy recently caused a mild riot at the popular Wuse Market in Abuja where he had gone to protest the protracted stay of President Muhammadu Buhari in the UK over an undisclosed ailment.

    Saddan Huissain of Irag was tried, convicted and executed by hanging for massacring 122 Iraqi citizens. Buhari has killed more than that. So, Buhari should face similar fate.

    It is ironic that the Federal government of Buhari has become an agent of hate in Nigeria. Now where in Africa is a president molesting civilians he does not like as in Nigeria. Thank God there is term limit in Nigeria otherwise this kind of ruler would impose himself and stay on till the devil calls him home.

      Lmaoooo, You are a confused maggot…I thought you said you are not a Nigerian. So, what’s your palava ? I would concentrate all my efforts in making sure the failed project called biafraud is realized if I were you !. Stop wasting your life on Nigeria issues, you have enough to worry about .

  • Charly man boy obviously the beaten you got at wasu wasn’t enough for you.

    As for namdi the coward kanu, are you’re running away from the FG WHY shouldn’t your one thousand strong ready and able supporters take down the lazy fulani government eggo FG.

    You can hide all you want Nigerian and Nigeria must have peace at all cost, your days of inciting terror are up.


    The mumus that Buhari begged tirelessly to pray for him just under a month ago can see that they were praying for a wicked man.

    Fortunately God knows better.

    • Julius

      Buhari begged Charley boy to pray for him ?. I bet you have a Phd in lying ! I heard that man saying ALL Nigerian should pray for our leaders, the country and our president. Na wa for u ooo !!

    Even if the crime is committed in the bedroom of Eze of Nigeria (if there is anyone like that), law officers will invade and wipe off the eze if he or she resists arrest. Not to talk of a nonentity who calls itself kanu

    • unitybeggars

      Which crime is committed in the east that is not happening in Yoruba land? the only reason the army is deployed to South East is because of succession agitation but only hiding under the excuse that they are looking for criminals, who are the criminals the army are looking for, if not IPOB members?

  • wode

    Charlyman seems to have lost his mind. Where is his sense of objectivity? Does he feel that joining the crowd is the way to be accepted. Was he not aware of the set of army being groomed by Nnamdi Kanu and his IPOB gangs? Does he want to claim ignorant of several weapon seizures by custom in the recent times? Is he saying that if he were to be in the leadership position, he would leave all the criminality taking place in SE, like some other parts of the country, unattended to? This man, and others like him, should realize what damage the ethnic champions have done to this country over the years, unfortunately only to their own selfish advantage but to the detriment of the masses. Different ethnic leaders have learnt to hold the government into ransom giving different types of claims. At the end of the day by the time these people are given money and awarded contracts, they keep silence. That’s the path we have threaded for years now. This government now comes to state, in words and deeds, that enough is enough. We have to learn to do right things and do things right. Whoever hasn’t realized that should know.

    • unitybeggars

      If IPOB want to carry arm they do n’t need to import new arm they will buy from black market and start from what they have, you yorubas are hypocrites, be prepared to kill all igbos, you think only IPOB members feel the impact of injustice meted to igbo ethnic groups in Nigeria, then you must be living in fools paradise.

      • Olatubosun

        You are crazy

      • wode

        What are the IPOB waiting for? Let them pick there guns and go and fight. They shouldn’t complain about military presence again.

  • daygea

    Charley boy has proven to Nigerians that his meaningless protests are sponsored by the PDPs. What a shame.

    • Olatubosun

      Sure, even Asari Dokubo testifies to it

  • Paul Graham

    If Charlie boy is trying to make amends after criticising Kanu and his gang blaming PMB is a wrong way to go about it. The fact is that Ndigbo were living in fear of Kanu and his gang before the military incursions. Those who do not believe in Kanu’s propaganda were targeted and labeled saboteurs. Traders were forced to close their shops at the whims and capris of the marauders. Ndigbo suffered mental and emotional torture, families suffered untold hardship while the spineless elders kept quiet in the face of tyranny. Young men and women were forced to join the gang and political leaders kept quiet out of fear and for political gains. If ever there was peace before the military Python dance, it was peace of a graveyard. The young ones have been brainwashed with a promise of a new dawn. what is being promised is a government of the lawless, by the lawless, for the lawless. Is Charlie free to walk and ride around the streets of the South East like he does in other parts. Successful Ndigbo within and outside the Country are afraid to visit their communities for fear of being kidnapped. Must Ndigbo be sacrificed for Kanu’s ambition? Innocent ones are put in harms way by self appointed Messiah of Ndigbo. The soldiers are their to liberate Ndigbo from the menace of Kanu and his gang!

    • unitybeggars

      old boy, you can lie ! where in the east did IPOB harass anybody or force anybody to join, the only thing i can agree with you is that Nnamdi Kanu always insult anyone who is against Biafra agitation, but it never got beyond mouth bashing, so pack well.

      • Julius

        Really ? what about the force sit at home order from kanu ? There was a story of an Igbo woman that was beat up yesterday simply because she is working for the ministry of heath with her office ID with her . She
        had to pay them before they let her go.Now they have Stop and search robbery going on in the name of biafraud. Be serious.

  • Olatubosun

    These people are terrorists, they need to be arrested

  • Olatubosun

    This charly boy is useless
