The Indigenous People of Biafra, under the leadership of His Excellency Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has proven to be the strongest and indestructible global family movement that has stood the test of time in fighting for the restoration of Biafra and the progress of black people. IPOB has indeed passed through many challenges, both internal and external, yet none of these situations was able to destabilize the global family movement because what binds the people together is way bigger than that which divides them. 

In today's reality, there's no individual or group, no matter how famous, wealthy or politically connected in Nigeria that can pull down this formidable IPOB family whose only mandate is the total liberation and independence of the Southeastern region via a well-organized referendum supervised by the United Nations and other relevant authorities. 

The Republic of Biafra was declared an independent state in 1967 as a result of many untreated issues and irreconcilable differences between the three major ethnic nations, including the failed Aburi Accord meeting held in Ghana and the hatred of Ndi Igbo by the other member nations that the British government through Frederick Lugard, forcefully joined together without their approval. 

The Nigeria versus Biafra Civil War of 1967-70 that took millions of innocent Biafra lives especially children and women who were starved would not have happened if only the Aburi Accord Agreement between Yakubu Gowon, the then Nigerian military head of state, and Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, the then military Governor of Eastern Nigeria was implemented.

However, the issues that led to the civil war have never been tackled and have continued to affect the general well-being of the contraption we call Nigeria today. The system has provided many loopholes to the extent that the people have formed numerous political movements to salvage the situation, but all to no avail. Therefore, many have risen and fallen as a result of indiscipline, bribery and corruption, greed, selfishness, power tussles, egocentricity, lack of coordination, financial incapability, disunity, mistrust, lack of cooperation, determination, purpose driving, and inconsistencies. 

IPOB is so unique that the foundation of the global family movement was built on solid rock that no amount of stormy weather or winter can shake its foundation. Indeed, the leadership and founder of this great family are most admirable, and as the saying goes, it's like a father, like a son! I must say that this is exactly what IPOB has become.

His Excellency Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has left strong men behind as if he knew that a time like this would come, but the most interesting thing about these men is how they've managed to organize themselves by following the standard rule of engagement or should I say the existing protocols. This can only be achieved by well-disciplined followers who trust the leadership of the family movement. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a man of honour and integrity. He has denied himself everything just to give the Biafra people a better life. Someone like Onyendu should be said to be a man after God's own heart because this is what we know to be true. 

Leadership by example. The Nigerian government is fond of suppressing the voice of the people either by using brute force or by unlawful harassment. Ndi Igbo are not the kind of people that guns and bullets can stop from fighting any reasonable cause, especially that which affects their freedom, growth, progress, and development as it endangers their purpose of existence. Therefore, IPOB has stood tall amidst all these trials and surely has come out victoriously. A global family movement bonded with love, peace, and unity like no other movement. 

The defence mechanism of IPOB was built on its chain of command, with the highest command remaining that of the supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, followed by the head of the Directorate of State (DOS) Mazi Chika Edoziem, and anything aside from that is indeed dead on arrival. Yes, many have tried their weight to pull the elephant down, but lo and behold, when the head is good, trust that others will strive to do well, just as we have seen in the Eastern Security Network (ESN), the IPOB media team, IPOB legal team, IPOB Continental Reps, IPOB Coordinators, and many more. They targeted the leader of IPOB, thinking that his arrest would be the end of the agitation, but what a daydream! 

Some called him a terrorist when he has not killed anybody. He's in detention without any court proving him guilty, yet the soldiers are fighting and bombing the real terrorists in the north who were planted there by the northern politicians themselves for their selfish reasons, but nobody has arrested them. IPOB has maintained a peaceful approach while calling for the unconditional release of their supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, that good man whose only crime was having the guts to speak for the freedom of his people.

IPOB will never disappoint you, Onyendu, as you have rejected silver and gold offered to you by the oppressors to prove to the whole world that it is not about money, fame, or praise, but that Ndi Igbo has men of timber and calibre with good reputation and integrity who are well placed and determined to render good service to humanity. This path you have chosen has commanded our respect and loyalty to you, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB, the Ijele, shall stand strong with you until the end of time.
