It has become rather imperative that this ignorance prevalent among our people be addressed before it eats deep into the fabrics of our living and into the common struggle we have strenuously built over the years. There’s a strange fire being lit in the path of our collective struggle. Recall that it was our supposed elders and political leaders who maliciously decided to proscribe IPOB and fraudulently tagged it, a terrorist group. Thankfully, however, their efforts failed and the world rejected the proscription, confirming that IPOB is the most organized and peaceful freedom fighters.
Recall that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) – Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was unlawfully incarcerated in Abuja but he maintained his stance of a political independence for Biafra. Recall also that he stood up to Justice Binta Nyako, making it clear to her that she is completely prejudiced and therefore does not attract any confidence in her court and judgment. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB do not deal with arms nor ammunition. Regardless of their peaceful approach, during the hideous python dance by the murderous army, IPOB suffered huge casualties. Many innocent lives of IPOB members were lost and several others critically injured.
These killers have always been the anti-Biafran elements who do not want to institute equity and justice. How then do they propagate the fallacy about Prophet Anthony Nwoko’s death? It is clear that they have always struggled to malign IPOB and its leadership but for which they have always failed. The same way, this hideous charade is dead on arrival as their evil plot has totally failed. They have watched youths, children, fathers, and mothers of Biafra being mowed down by the Nigerian government and have not summoned the courage to speak against this atrocities. Now they have colluded with the same terrorist regime of the Nigerian government to malign IPOB.
Why is the Nigerian government and its agents desperately seeking to undermine IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu? Because their atrocities are being brought to lime light. They have levied all sorts of allegations against IPOB and Kanu in order to stop IPOB from exposing the fraud that is Nigeria but IPOB has continued to soar higher like the eagle. IPOB has remained a non-violent group. They do not kill, hence these malicious actors should know that their efforts are in vain because IPOB cannot be distracted from its focus. Dim Ojukwu began this journey and Mazi Kanu has taken up this mantle to bring it to its successful conclusion. Those who are fuelled by envy and greed should realize they do so in vain and should as a matter of urgency retrace their steps.
Their problems are numerous and Kanu and IPOB is none of them. Those involved should face their grievous problems and stop being influenced by greed and jealousy. IPOB remains on the right path to reclaim the stolen mandate of the Biafran people. IPOB remains in the right path to demand that the rights of the Biafran people to independence be respected. It demands that justice and equity be served for the betterment of humanity. All misguided elements are hereby advised to ponder conscientiously and hence yield to reason.
