Thirteen supporters of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) have approached the Abuja Magistrate court demanding their release from Keffi prison.

The men, led by a certain Agbo Moses, were arrested on December 2 by a detachment of police officers during a protest at the premises of the Magistrate Court in the Wuse District of Abuja when Mr. Kanu was brought for trial.

The men had come to court to show solidarity with the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, who was tried by the magistrate court. The court discharged Mr. Kanu on Wednesday.

According to the counsel to the 13 men, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, his clients are now demanding arraignment based on the remand order the police obtained from the court on the day of their arrest.

“When the police arrested the 13 men, they (the police) approached the Magistrate court for an order to have them remanded in prison,” Mr. Ejiofor said.

“In that order, the Magistrate court asked that they be produced in court on December 17.”

He disclosed that his clients had now petitioned the magistrate demanding their release from prison once arraigned.

The 13 detainees are Agbo Moses, Oruna Okechukwu, Ede Uchenna, Ede Emeka, Chidi Ogo, Ani Chukwuemeka, Ezenwankwo Obumneme, Chukwunonso Ekwonu, Anioke Charity, Oko Ugochi, Adibe Dorathy, Aluma Samuel, and Ochor Chigozie.

    Nothing will stop Biafra not even one billion arrests of Freedom Fighters.

    I do not like the Ibos, the Yorubas and the Hausa-foolanis. How I like to see somebody posting news like this every day. It will always make my day; I love to see the Yibos and the Yaribas fighting. The Yaribas to me are the biggest cowards, they keep making empty treat. Take the first shot at the Yibos if you think Lagos belongs to the Yaribas. I will however assure you Yaribas one fact no one from my SS is going to assist or help the Yaribas or Hausa-foolani again in any war against the Yibos. Those mistakes happen before I was born and will never happen again in my life time. The most painful thing is the brainwashing of my grandparents into fighting a war against the Yibos, after the Yibos were defeated, what did the Yo-robbers/Hausa-foolani, do they grab the gold ring and left us with the brass ring. Ironically they complain when the Yibos mention Biafra yet they allowed my community Bakassi to be given to the Cameroonians, what a hypocrite, despite the fact that Bakassi wants to be a part of Nigeria. So to you Yaribas and Hausa-foolani, Let every zone use the resources in their zone to develop their zone or Let go our separate ways. I don’t understand why Calabar should not have a world class seaport just like Lagos, I don’t understand why Port Harcourt Airport should be the worst airport in the world yet this very zone provides the funding of Muritala Airport, Abuja airport, Lagos Seaport, a brand new rail line from Abuja to Kaduna and the rail line running from Lagos to Kano. The rail line running from Port Harcourt to wherever is left in despair. Presently I cannot travel from Uyo to Ogoja, yet money is been poured into Lagos –Ibadan Expressway. For Someone from part of SS (Cross River/A Ibom)/SE to travel abroad you have to go to Lagos or Abuja and the Yaribas and the Hausa-foolanis don’t see anything wrong with this picture. What is wrong with Nigeria? Long live Cross River State/A. Ibom State, Long Live the confederates states of SS and SE and any other likeminded zone who wants to be part of the confederacy.

    Igbo people are very funny. They fail to understand that sovereign statehood is not by protest. They are simply entertaining the nation. This Igboland is a territory that ought not to be in Nigeria at all because they are not qualified to be called Nigerians. This is a place inhabited cannibals. It is true that there are Ibos who eat human flesh. People who live there have confirmed it. Igboland is the real zoo inhabited by animals who eat one another. They are simply jackals. It is the headquarters of armed robbery, kidnapping, cannibalism, baby factory, sale of children, child theft, ritual killings and lots more evil. Nigeria, let the Ibos go without any form of diplomatic relationship. Let them build their country through Cameroon not through the Nigerian waterways. Nonsense. Their cry of marginalization is horrible. If at all there is marginalization in Nigeria, the Ibos are marginalizing the rest of us. In recruitments to the police, army, navy, NDA, war college, air force etc, all states are equally represented. All states in Nigeria have universities. There is no local ward in Nigeria without at least one primary school and one secondary school. Igbo is the only ethnic group in Nigeria with igwes and eze ndigbo outside their territory. They are terrorizing other communities. No stranger holds a potical position in Iboland unlike the west where Ibos share positions with Yorubas. The first president of Nigeria was Ibo with a northern prime minister. The first military head of state was Ibo. The first coup in which senior members and political leaders of other ethnic groups were murdered in cold blood was executed by mostly Ibo officers. Alex Ekweme was the first executive vice president. Ebitu Ukiwe was vice president to IBB. General Ihejirika headed the army. Okonjo-Iweala dominated the economy for more than a decade. The governors of the five Ibo states are Ibo people. Their deputies, commissioners, chairmen and councilors are Ibo people. The vice chancellors of all universities, both state and federal, in the east are Ibo people. Ibo traders are colonizing all parts of Nigeria. If they are complaining, it is not because they are marginalized but because they don’t know God and they are not grateful to Him. Ibo people, you cannot be the God of Nigeria, but you are almost god.
    The East has provided several Senate Presidents including Nwafor Orizu, Chuba Okadigbo, Adolphus Wabara, Evans Ewerem and Pius
    Anyim. They produced the SSG under Jonathan. If these amounted to marginalization, may God give me any of the above positions.
