    The way the security forces swoop on IPOB members are quite swift…one begins to wonder why they fail to do same with BH and the herdsmen. Is that the peaceful IPOB members are more of a threat than these murderous groups? Fulani herdsmen and boko haram are the only internationally recognised terrorist in failed state Nigeria. No reasonable country will buy Nigeria deception of trying to include agitators with terrorist of northern extraction. International community understand that its a trick to give the fulani herdsmen a soft landing on global terrorist watch list. Democracy is about free speech and the government of the north have yet to arrest Arewa shitbags who exercised their free speech with the shit notice. On election day is when this evil government will be able to access how much the ordinary Anambra man believe in the Biafra struggle. Nigeria is not working and has never worked. Nigeria has always lived on life support from Niger delta oil.

    IPBO as a group should have sound lawyers that would be representing them. This is an abuse of personality and rascality. In a democracy there’s freedom of speech and expression except…. Sharing fliers on what they believe is never a crime. But infringement on other people’s Rights while in the process of such is illegal.

    We Igbos worldwide will be holding Anambra people and Ojukwu responsible for killing over 3.5 million Igbos in the name of Biafra independent if only One person is found participating on 18th November Anambra election. No body or visitors should be allowed in our communities on the election day.GOD SAVE NNAMDI KANU, GOD BLESS BIAFRA.

    Why the arrest! Politicians are posting their own, there are obituary posters here & there, meetings , churches ceremonies name it are being posted here &there. Is it because it is IPOB? God will disappoint & punish all of you!

    My people instead of sharing flyers and you get caught you don’t know who is who some of them don’t wear uniforms I think it would be better you stick posters only at night. Do that in strategic places where people use everyday. Before you know it people are aware and before our enemies sees it the message would have been long passed. Stop sharing flyers because of the risk involved.

    Nigerian government has still not wake up to the reality on this Biafra issue. This is an ideology and like they say you can’t fight ideology with guns bullets. Today they arrest youths protesting tomorrow they arrest aged people protesting and they haven’t asked themselves question concerning the agitation

    The leaflet is not a gun, it’s only a message. It is not forcing you not to vote. So it is not a crime. After all others are sharing their leaflet telling you which party to vote. And they are telling you not to vote. It is democracy. Everyone has rights. They are not going to kill you if you vote. So I don’t see the crime there. Pls open your eyes and don’t support injustice.

    Hahahaha keep shivering and keep blackmailing IPOB of which you knows is stronger than the whole of west Africa, from rumour of the sack of our leader to video of some fulani dirty pogs posing as terrorists threatening to kill buhari, now to gathering man to sample them as IPOB, useless country called Nigeria being led by ocultic group called APC. Nigeria will sink with time…

  9. Emmanuel Chi says:

    You people are fools. How many Fulani herdsmen have you stupid Nigeria army arrested ever since they have been killing and destroying properties? Only on IPOB and armless citizens you fools have power, go and showcase your strength in sambisa forest with Boko Haram not on armless citizens
