Disregard the orchestrated drama by the Nigerian Military attempting to elevate their puppet, Simon Ekpa, as the leader of IPOB.

Firstly, Simon Ekpa is not an IPOB member, and he certainly is not our leader, as falsely claimed by the Nigerian security forces. This is a scripted narrative they are rehearsing, which is different from their previous actions against Igboho and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

When Igboho was arrested in Benin Republic, did the military announce their plan to extradite him publicly? No. Similarly, when Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was kidnapped in Kenya, did the Nigerian forces broadcast their intentions? No. The bounties on Kanu were orchestrated by individuals like Hope Uzodinma and Wike to conceal their involvement in his abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Simon Ekpa is a contracted agent of the Nigerian government, tasked with the responsibility of undermining IPOB's leadership under Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by misleading Biafrans and creating divisions and distractions among Biafrans, thereby making them turn against themselves and derail from the goal of Biafra restoration. This calculated effort aims to weaken our collective resolve and sow discord within our ranks.

The current charade played by the Nigerian military aims to legitimize and promote Ekpa as their agent, ensuring he continues misleading Biafrans. If they genuinely sought extradition, why announce it publicly? 

No government reveals such plans in advance. Extradition is a government-to-government process when the USA wanted to extradite Abba Kyari, did they announce it publicly? the answer is No. 

The theatrical nature of their public announcements regarding Ekpa raises questions about the true intentions behind the narrative they are weaving.

Simon Ekpa has been arrested by Finland Police for inciting violence, and the Nigerian government swiftly secured his release, why aren't they directly contacting the Finnish government now? The public announcements suggest a game to make you believe Simon is advancing the cause of Biafra. 

It's crucial to scrutinize the motives behind this orchestrated drama, revealing the intricacies of the plot against our collective struggle for Biafra's restoration.

Ask yourself, what has Simon Ekpa accomplished for Biafrans since being contracted by the Nigerian government?

Declaring himself the Prime Minister of Biafra, a premature assertion.

Involvement in the killing of innocent Biafrans and car thefts under the guise of sit-at-home.

Creating fake structures mimicking the original ones established by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, including a counterfeit ESN, Mbranch, and an 8-men criminal military group.

Simon Ekpa's actions are all stage-managed. He promised his followers a specific date for Biafra's Independence but later retracted it as the date elapsed, claiming the end of the 100 days marked the beginning of the struggle. It's essential to question his contributions to our freedom compared to IPOB's tangible efforts in the legal representation of all IPOB members in the contraption called Nigeria, including Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. 

IPOB is the one protecting our land against Fulani invaders and supporting affected families. All the Biafrans arrested by the Nigerian government, IPOB goes for their cases, gets them bail, and equally pays for their bail bond, which runs into millions of Naira. All the Biafrans killed, IPOB does their burial and takes care of their families. For all the wounded Biafrans, IPOB is the one who takes them to the hospital and also pays their hospital bills. 

Many of them were also sent to India for treatment, and one of them is still here in India. His name is Chidozie AKA the striker. This same IPOB pays and takes care of IPOB's legal team which defends Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and all the Biafrans involved in any litigation with Nigeria police, military, or DSS.

In essence, everything about Ekpa is a fabrication. Let's remain vigilant, unified, and committed to the authentic leadership of IPOB under Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Our pursuit of Biafra's restoration demands discernment and unity.

In solidarity, we stand!

Biafra: The Enemies Of IPOB Will Forever Bury Their Heads In Shame

                    Biafra: The Enemies Of IPOB Will Forever Bury Their Heads In Shame

Despite the global conspiracy against this global movement of The Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) led by Our supreme Leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, we have remained unwaveringly and focused on this noble course of Biafra restoration.

IPOB have remained the only nightmare to the British and the Nigerian governments, they have introduced every mechanism to quench this raging agitation from IPOB, but to no avail. 

First of all, we must commend the hierarchical structure of IPOB, the Directorate of State headed by Mazi Chika Edoziem and every other member of the DOS. 

What happened on Saturday 18th November 2023 during the opening of the IPOB European Liaison Office in Padova Italy, has proven beyond every reasonable doubt that IPOB has remained in the right direction. 

IPOB is beyond Facebook content creation, we are here to restore Biafra, and Biafra freedom is non-negotiable.

Our motivation is derived from our love for Biafra, and also in demand for justice for over 3-5 million Biafran women and children massacred from 1967-till date. 

This event has sent numerous messages across the world, to the infiltrators and the enemies of IPOB on how civilized movements like IPOB operate.

 IPOB is not a criminal or violent organization, those aiding and abetting criminalities in Biafraland using it to negotiate deals and contracts with the Z00 Nigeria government will continue to bury their faces in shame, as they have failed woefully..

IPOB will continue its diplomatic approach until we are left with no other option than seeking our self-determination through every possible means. 

As Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu said, 'It will take you 60 years to penetrate this current structure of IPOB, and it will take you another 150 years to shake its foundation', those of you parading yourselves as Onyendu's siblings or relatives, begging money from one politician to the other, your doomsday is near, as the blood of innocent Biafrans who has been used to wash this flag of liberty will never be in vain.

And for those of you Igbo politicians standing against the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, you've all made yourselves mortal enemies to the history of this very great revolution in Africa, and it's unforgivable. 

Our demand remains the unconditional release of IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as ordered by the court of Appeal, and a date for the Biafra referendum. Nothing more, nothing less.

God bless the IPOB worldwide family.

God bless Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB DOS.

Thank you to our IPOB European Representative Mazi Austin Agbanyim and his deputy Mazi Isaiah Uba.

Biafra: The Black Slave In A White Cage Wake Up Call

                                 Biafra: The Black Slave In A White Cage Wake-Up Call

Right from the inception of time and season, the world is established on the basis of 'survival of the fittest', nations rise against nations, and the stronger warriors lead their armies to the battlefield to win and conquer territories for the purpose of exploitation and bringing home the glory of the brave.

The universe is surrounded and inhabited by different races, ideologies and different value systems. 

The world is believed to be created by the supreme being, but the history therein is written by the stronger minds who were courageous enough to defeat the fear of the unknown by travelling beyond their borders in search of means of survival and in addition to human advancement. 

Today (in the 21st century), the world is advanced in technology and science, and every continent/race is highly excelling in every sphere of the new technology era and in competitive influence on the planet Earth. In all these great waves of economic excellence and advancements in the human race, the black race who are hugely blessed with natural resources are found wanting and lacking behind.

Question; What's wrong with the black race?

Every truthful person will attest to the fact that the black race whose origin is in the continent of Africa has faced the worst history of mankind. As some historians will say; the history of mankind began in Africa. Africa remains the richest continent of the world in natural resource deposits, but we are the poorest in the whole world in terms of economic growth and civilization. 

The answer remains that the Blacks-lave has been caged in a well-designed white Cage, he has been stage-managed in a way that he now feels comfortable to the extent of referring to this cage as a natural and beautiful one, he sees anybody trying to break loose this cage as an enemy instead of a liberator. But for how long shall we be sitting on the fence of ignorance watching our dear continent falling and tearing apart? It's time to stand up, fight and restore the dignity of the black African race.

There are three weapons used by the Europeans/Americans in caging Africa physically and mentally, namely; colonialism, imperialism and religion.

COLONIALISM: Right from the stage/era of agricultural and industrial revolution across Europe and America,  it has contributed nothing but to the detrimental state of Africa as a continent, due to the weak mindset found amongst the Black race. The mass exploitation of African labor/natural resources by the European countries in the 1400-1900's helped the colonial powers to examine the gullibility of an average African, through which the answers and documentation is been weaponized against Africa to date.

The Berlin conference of 1884-85 is one of the factors that divided Africa against the wish and views of the indigenous population and in the interest of the colonial criminals, but unfortunately enough, the same criminals who invaded, dehumanized and committed so many atrocities in the territory of Africa, are the ones who acclaimed the history of Africa, exonerating their crimes against the black African races. As Chinua Achebe wrote in his 'Things Fall Apart': "Until The lions Have their own Historians, the history of the hunt will Always Glorify the hunter". The same way they concocted the bible to suit our emotions and subdue our sense of reasoning in Africa is the same way they concocted the story of slavery. They claimed Africans sold their fellows to them for slavery, but we can truly feel the realistic side of the story here in Africa, in every territory there must be betrayals of their own people, but that doesn't make their claim firm. They bred the warrant chiefs and West African frontier force (1900) in order to infiltrate and penetrate the stronger territories like the Igbo (Biafra) territory which gave them a 30years+ of fierce resistance by the Ekumeku warriors till its fall in 1914.

In 1945-60 the Colonial criminals declared an end to slavery, but has slavery ended?! The signs and trauma of slavery are written all over Africa, as Africans continue to suffer and endure Neo-Colonialism, modern-day slavery through imperialism, Western propaganda, lies and misinformation against Africa's strive for freedom, including religion fueled by ignorance of the gullible masses. It's only a few countries like the German president Frank Walter Steinmeier who has apologized to Tanzanians, the descendants of the Late Songea Mbano who was executed alongside 66 other indigenous revolutionaries for refusing to betray the people of Tanzania during the Maji-Maji revolution in 1905-07, other countries have refused to apologize, instead, they are still adding salt to the wounds of slavery in our hearts. 

The sins of these colonizers are unimaginable and cruel, as highlighted and confessed by the French former president, Rene Jacques Chirac -"We bled Africa for four and a half centuries, we looted their raw materials, then we told lies that the Africans are good for nothing. In the name of religion, we destroyed their culture, and after being made rich at their expense we now steal their brains through miseducation and propaganda to prevent them from enacting black retribution against us". 

IMPERIALISM: One of the biggest factors that has put Africa to her knees is the Western policy of extending their rule over Africa through their puppets in political positions of power. They go hard against any leader in Africa who wishes or tries to work for the betterment of Africa. 

They work so hard to make sure Africans are impoverished in order to continue relying on their hypocritical 'aid' and 'visa' for survival. It's the European policy and they'll never change it until Africans rise up in demand for their rights and land. 

They use democracy as a mantra to cement the installation of their errand boys to continue milking our natural resources, that's why we have never and will never record a free and transparent democratic election regarding all these flag independence in Africa. England and France have zero gold deposits in their land, yet they have the highest gold reserves in the world courtesy of African/Asian stolen treasures. 

Any government that will develop and benefit the African masses is considered a threat by these criminals, and that's why the story of Muammar Gaddafi will forever remain fresh in our minds. Gaddafi was a Pan-Africanist who supported Nelson Mandela's ANC for the freedom of South Africans from apartheid hegemony. Gaddafi worked tirelessly for the interest of Lybia and her citizens, making sure there was huge progress in the economic sector of Lybia. There were countless job opportunities, free education, adequate hospitals and zero debt in Lybia under Gaddafi's regime. Lybia's gold reserves increased in its thorns. In 1977 Muammar Gaddafi transformed Lybia into a socialist state called Jamahiriya, which means 'state of the masses'.

But these same neo-colonialists headed by NATO saw Lybia's economic and political progress and instigated the so-called Arab spring, despite the first air bombardment of Lybia by the USA in 1986 which Gaddafi survived, they worked tirelessly until He was gruesomely murdered in his hometown in Sirte on 20th October 2011. After the so-called humanitarian response by the U.S. in Lybia, how is the state of Lybia today under Western democracy? Have they accounted for thorns of Gold that went missing after the invasion of Lybia by NATO?.  

When something happens in Europe, or against their interest it becomes a global/African daily discussion topic, but when it happens here in Africa against the interest of the masses, they hypocritically keep mute in pretence. They must leave Africa either by conviction or forcefully and shamefully.

RELIGION: As I will always say, am not against anyone's belief, but we must say the Truth and stand by it by calling out the vast growing ignorance of our people. Religious sentiment has added massively in caging the mindsets of our people, we have been rendered helpless and hopeless because of what the colonial criminals brought as their own version of the word of God, stealing our sense of reasoning. The same colonial criminals who brought the bible as a gospel and told us about how it is good to be poor in order to inherit heaven, are at the same time stealing our natural resources to build their own heaven here on earth in their land. 

You go to church to pray, fast and sell your ancestral land just to obtain a visa to Europe. Through the scriptures and our gullible mindset, we've legalized poverty as a part that every child of God must thread to make (an unseen heaven) heaven. How many churches are here in Africa and Nigeria in particular, just imagine converting these churches into manufacturing companies, do we still have to go for a pastor to sprinkle olive oil on our forehead to be able to get a job after graduating? Never. Our brain is the highest natural resource, and it's time we make good use of it.

Our pain and sufferings in Africa till date are solely contained in the letter written by King Louis Leopold II of Belgium to the Belgian missionaries in Africa (Congo precisely), in 1883, he wrote;

""Reverends, Fathers and Dear Compatriots: The task that is given to fulfil is very delicate and requires much tact.  You will go certainly to evangelize, but your evangelism must inspire above all Belgium interests.  Your principal objective in our mission in the Congo (Africa) is never to teach the niggers to know God, this they know already.  They speak and submit to a Mungu, one Nzambi, one Nzakomba, and what else I don’t know.  They know that to kill, to sleep with someone else’s wife, to lie and to insult is bad. 

 Have the courage to admit it; you are not going to teach them what they know already.  Your essential role is to facilitate the task of administrators and industrials, which means you will interpret the gospel in the way that will be the best to protect your interests in that part of the world.  For these things, you have to keep watch on disinteresting savages from the richness that is plenty [in their underground. To avoid that, they get interested in it, and make you murderous] competition and dream one day to overthrow you.

Your knowledge of the gospel will allow you to find texts ordering, and encouraging your followers to love poverty, like “Happier are the poor because they will  inherit the heaven” and, “It’s very difficult for the rich to enter the kingdom of God.”  You have to detach from them and make them disrespect everything which gives courage to affront us.  I make reference to their Mystic System and their war fetish-warfare protection-which they pretend not to want to abandon, and you must do everything in your power to make it disappear.

Your action will be directed essentially to the younger ones, for they won’t revolt when the recommendation of the priest is contradictory to their parent’s teachings.   The children have to learn to obey what the missionary recommends, who is the father of their soul.  You must singularly insist on their total submission and obedience, avoid developing the spirit in the schools, teach students to read and not to reason"" {excerpt from the letter}.

It is time to break loose the shackles and chains of slavery, it's time to eradicate poverty as a custom in Africa. We shouldn't be too emotional in our understanding, but critical and tactical in order to dislodge these criminals and their puppets in Africa. 

The only solution to our predicament is by acknowledging the fact that 95% of countries existing in Africa are founded/created by these same colonialists to serve their interests to the detriment of us Africans. We must bring these colonial-imposed countries to the table of new negotiations and agreements in order to determine for ourselves a new nation that will serve the interests of the indigenous population and residents of Africa. It's time for a new strength, a song and a new season of revolution in Africa. And no one can quench this revolution until the Black Slaves In A White Cage is totally liberated.

Every African, conscientious men and women whose dream is to see a great Africa should throw their support for the freedom of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), there lies a true, a free and independent Africa.

According to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the essence of being human lies in our ability to reason, analyze information, and pose critical questions. As we embark on a mission of mental enlightenment and revolution across the continent of Africa, we are committed to challenging political and religious scholars in Africa with factual information.

During a recent journey, I engaged in an interactive argument with Reverend Obinna regarding the situation in Nigeria, the lives of Christians in the country, and Omenala Igbo. The conversation unfolded as follows:

Rev. Obinna: "Sadly, we've been on this road for the past 20 minutes because of a bad road. God help me; I can't afford to miss this diocese meeting in the next few minutes. We are suffering in this country, and bad roads are the worst despite the skyrocketing prices of things in Nigeria."

Me: "Good day, sir."

Rev. Obinna: "Good day, my son. How are you?"

Me: "Fine, sir! You've been talking to yourself; is anything wrong?"

Rev. Obinna: "Not at all. I am rushing for a meeting, and as you can see, the situation of this road alone could  make me arrive late."

Me: "That's the condition of Nigeria as a failed state, and we'll continue suffering as long as those in the best positions to speak the truth refuse to do so."

Rev. Obinna: "You are right, my child. Our political leaders have failed to do what is right."

Me: "Yes, sir. And our religious leaders are not exempt. They are part of our problems, feeding our people with what they want to hear, and not the truth."

Rev Obinna: "The truth remains that most clergymen are after money, but they feed their flocks with the word of God, and that word of God is truth. They are not the problem. The church is established on the foundation of truth through the power of Christ Jesus."

Me: "Thank you, sir. I love the word 'truth.' I'd like to know who wrote the Bible, and do you believe that the Bible is nothing but the truth?"

Rev. Obinna: "Yes, the Bible is the mind of God; it was written by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. And the first five books of the Old Testament were written by Moses."

Me: "Thank you, sir. But which book wrote about the death of Moses on the mount of Nebo?"

Rev. Obinna: "Deuteronomy explained the death of Moses, how his anger denied him access to the promised land, Canaan."

Me: "But how is it possible that the same Moses who wrote Deuteronomy wrote about his death and burial in the same book?"

Rev. Obinna: "Through the Holy Spirit, everything is possible, and it was 'probably' by revelation to him before his departure. But which church do you attend? (He's not even sure) I suggest you meet your pastor for more explanation."

Me: "I stopped attending Church (name withheld) for a long time now because my pastor hasn't defeated some of these arguments. I am a lover of a sound mind, Onye Omenala, and a follower of Nnamdi Kanu."

Rev. Obinna: "We all support Biafra, but you are not getting it right when you no longer attend your church. You shouldn't go through the path of our forefathers whose sins we are still suffering today. I was in one branch of your church in 2013 when I helped the senior pastor destroy the village shrine. That church is very good for you, son."

Me: "But, sir, I am not against anyone's religion or belief. I am against the growing ignorance of our people. I am against those hypocritically cultivating the grounds for this growing ignorance in Ala Igbo and entire Africa."

Rev. Obinna: "How do you mean?"

Me: "Christianity, as a religion, is alien to our culture and traditions as Ndi Igbo. The same ancestors that fought so hard in the defense of this territory (Ala/Ana/Ani) from invaders, on the same land you are building your church today, are considered evil? Currently, Christianity is undergoing reforms. In the next 100 years, your children might see this current model of Christianity as evil, and by then, you've become an evil ancestor as well. But why are you hell-bent on destroying the so-called shrines in our land?"

Rev. Obinna: "You are just a child. I've been on this missionary journey for the past 40 years, eradicating every form of evil in our land because it is a commandment from God according to the book of Exodus 20/3-5."

Me: "But you have a cross on your necklace; what's that for?"

Rev. Obinna: "That's a chaplet; I use it for praying."

Me: "The same way you use the chaplet, holy water/olive oil to pray to the Virgin Mary, is the same way Onye Omenala uses nzú, edo, oji na mmaya-okú to decree/pray in our traditional way. But the inferiority complex has made us abandon our rich ancestral heritage and culture to worship European idols moulded with a bag of cement and other items. We patronize other people's culture; stolen and copied from Africa; we pay a huge sum of money to watch Halloween in Europe, but our mmanwu (masquerade) in our ordinal is termed 'evil' by some Christians like you. 

Do you think that Rome/Italy cares if you exist? They are much more concerned about their economic interest in oil and gas than your existence. You can read that through the reaction and body language of Pope Francis on the slaughter of innocent Christians in Nigeria. Rome will always prefer the forced unity of Nigeria at the expense of your life as a Christian than to lose the free oil and gas flowing from your land."

Rev. Obinna: "I feel your anger, but you shouldn't judge that way. The problem of Christians in Nigeria is primarily caused by bad leadership, and we as Christians haven't done enough in bringing the gospel of Christ to some of these areas dominated by Islamic radicals. Every country has its interest, just like Nigeria, but our sins are the cause of our sufferings."

Me: "We shouldn't dwell on this mentality; otherwise, we'll continue suffering and smiling. Which of our sins? I asked. The same European ancestors who brought the Bible painted our ancestors black/evil, and subjected them to all forms of dehumanization through slavery are now considered saints. But my ancestors, who suffered human degradation by these same European ancestors, are evil. Is that what you mean? Our sufferings derive from our inability to reason beyond the roofs of our churches."

"We've refused to go beyond tithes and offerings. We contribute to sustaining the existence of One-Nigeria by failing to acknowledge the truth. The preachers, especially the General Overseers, who proclaim salvation and heaven, are building their paradise here on earth. They acquire private jets with the hard-earned money of the poor and gullible masses."

"Despite our abundant natural and mental resources, our youth continue to perish in the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea, striving to reach Europe for greener pastures. We were indoctrinated to believe that the blood of Jesus cures our illnesses, olive oil heals our diseases, and prayers to a foreign god (a White Jesus) will transform and advance our society. We have even transformed numerous manufacturing companies into prayer grounds, hoping for miracle jobs from heaven."

"The Christian Association of Nigeria serves as a political tool wielded by imperialists to control our people's mindset, rendering them unfit to execute and sustain a bitter revolution against the corrupt system in place. We were led to believe in false and imaginary miracles, contributing to Africa's continued poverty despite abundant mineral deposits in our territories. Our lack of mental enlightenment and our refusal to reason beyond religious sentiments have perpetuated this cycle."

"Any religion that directly or indirectly hinders this generation from critical reasoning for the economic growth, development, and technological advancement of the Black race should be deemed null and void. We have endured enough."

(The discussion concluded as the Reverend Father disembarked from the bus, and we exchanged greetings.)

It is time to release the 'black slave in a white cage', time to break free from the shackles of mental slavery for the betterment of Africa. We must lend our support to those diligently working to reclaim our dignity and unite Ndi Igbo with our rich heritage, tradition, and culture.

God bless IPOB leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for enlightening us and every genuine Pan-Africanist striving for a better Africa. Iseee!

Nnamdi Kanu: Justice Delayed And Why Nigeria's Supreme Court Cannot Build Castle In The Air

   Nnamdi Kanu: Justice Delayed And Why Nigeria's Supreme Court Cannot Build Castle In The Air

■ Author: Esiaba Chibuihe

■ Twitter:@umuchiukwu

■ 08.11.2023 

Sincerely speaking the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has put the Nigerian judiciary on a global trial. As the whole world awaits Nigeria's supreme court judgment on the stay of execution of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's appeal court victory on 15th of December, 2023, we must remind the Nigeria government and her supreme court that the world is not a jungle where any animal can break into another kingdom for hunting in a show of superior power because there is no law and order.

We must continue pointing out the inhumane manner in which Mazi Nnamdi Kanu the leader of IPOB who was travelling with a British passport was kidnapped, tortured for 8 days in Kenya, and was extraordinarily renditioned to Nigeria. 

In 2021, The United Nations, UN Human Rights Council Group on Arbitrary Detention indicted the Nigeria and Kenya governments for the arrest, torture, extraordinary rendition, and continued detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. The UN working group ordered the Nigerian government to immediately release and compensate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu adequately. After This a communication was transmitted to the Nigeria and Kenya governments, to comply with these directives within six months. 

On the 13th of October 2022, the Court of Appeal in Abuja observed this illegal abduction of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his extraordinary rendition. The court discharged and acquitted him of all the frivolous charges imposed by the Nigerian state, ordered his immediate release, and additionally prohibited the Nigerian government from further prosecuting him in any court within the country. In response, the Office of the Attorney General sought a stay of execution of this judgment at the Supreme Court.

Recall that a federal high court in Umuahia on 26th of October 2022, presided by Justice E. N Anyadike gave a landmark judgment where he declared Nnamdi Kanu's expulsion from Kenya to Nigeria as illegal and ordered his unconditional release, awarding him a five hundred thousand naira damages. 

These judgments comply with international laws on extradition, hence, the office of the Attorney General of the federation, Abubakar Malami, the chief presiding judge, Haruna Tsammani, and the prosecuting lawyer, Tijjani Gazali should not feign ignorance of international and local laws on extradition.

There have been similar cases in the past for reference: On August 29, 2022, when Abba Kyari was wanted in the U.S to stand trial for wire fraud, money laundering, and identity theft, a grand jury was filed against him with the approval of the U.S District Court for Central District of California after which a warrant was issued for his arrest. 

When the U.S government demanded Kyari's extradition from the Nigeria government, this same federal government of Nigeria (hypocritically) approached the court for his extradition, the court dismissed the file, stating that Abba Kyari had been docked before a competent jurisdiction in the country (NDLEA vs Abba Kyari), that he can never be surrendered for repatriation until he is discharged either by his conviction or acquittal.

However, this same government refused to go through the normal procedure but resorted to kidnap Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Also in 1984, when the Nigeria/Israeli governments attempted to extraordinarily rendition Umaru Dikko back to Nigeria in a diplomatic bag from the U.K., those responsible were fished out by the U.K. government and punished adequately. The British government went as far as sanctioning the Nigerian government for attempting such a heinous crime.

Unfortunately, in 2021, the same UK government indirectly supported the extraordinary rendition of her citizen Nnamdi Kanu by the Kenya/Nigeria governments. Because of the oil and gas, they are stealing from Biafra land.

Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB have committed no crime by demanding our right to self-determination which is enshrined under the UN Charter on Indigenous rights. No amount of blackmail, intimidation, and persecution can stop us from getting a free sovereign independent state of Biafra through referendum. 

The earlier The Nigeria/British governments understand this and stop the delay tactics against Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the Biafrans, the better for everyone. The Supreme Court can never build a castle in the air and expect it to stand.

 The world expects Nigeria's supreme court to do justice on this case by dismissing this stay of execution appeal by the federal government. The Nigerian judiciary is fantastically corrupt, but this is a little opportunity for the Supreme Court to rekindle the said last hope of the common man redeem the battered image of the contraption called Nigeria, and save Nigeria from an inevitable and looming state of anarchy that might be birthed by a further mishandling of this case. 

Human rights organizations, governments, and lovers of freedom around the world should stand up and say no to any form of state-sponsored intimidation, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB are not criminals as confirmed by even the DSS and Nigeria Army through the objective reports.

The Unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Biafra restoration through a UN-supervised referendum or any other means is non-negotiable. Do not forget, 'unity by force is a modern-day slavery', and we have refused to be subjected to modern-day British slavery in the name of One-Nigeria. 

The only thing that can stop IPOB's agitation is Biafra's freedom, nothing else.
