    “If I Die Today, Burn My Corpse To Ashes” — Uwazuruike

    Tell Mr Uwazuruike that he will not be allowed to desecrate land of Biafra again. Tell Mr Uwazuruike that corpse burning is associated with Budhdism and Hinduism.
    Mr Uwazuruike should exile himself to China or any of the South Asian countries as a voluntary slave so that he is surely burnt after he dies.

We Do Not Expect Everybody To Support Biafra Agitation —⁠ Nnamdi Kanu

Published

on

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnmadi Kanu on Sunday vowed they are prepared to sacrifice the last drop of their blood to restore Biafra saying he does not expect everybody that bears a Biafran name to support wholeheartedly the move IPOB is making to ensure that freedom is restored in Igboland.

“We urge the good people of Biafra not to be unduly burdened when certain comments designed to pander to the Fulani Caliphate are uttered by some individuals or politicians as we march ever so remorselessly to our destination which is freedom for Biafra.

Kanu said in a statement by his Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful that these misguided individuals should therefore be pitied rather than condemned.

“Our position against the flawed foundational structures upon which our British colonial masters constructed the fraudulent edifice Flora Shaw originally named Nigga-area later anglicised to Nigeria by her lover Frederick Luggard must not be allowed to stand.

“It doesn’t matter what ignorant neo-colonial slaves say or do, the Fulani Caliphate will continue to use unity of Nigeria as an excuse to continue their age long camping of mass murder, genocide and ethnic cleansing as millions watch on impotently under the guise of keeping a British colonial product one.”

He said: “Each person is entitled to his or her opinion about whether to be a free soul or to continue living as the glorified slave. For us in IPOB, we have chosen to be free but we shall let those that wish to be enslaved to continue to do so till eternity. It’s all about choice.”

He reiterated that “we are not expecting every person to support Biafra agitation as long as we know that currently 99.9 per cent of our people are in support of the movement IPOB is making towards our quest for Biafra independence.

“We are not perturbed by the utterances of a few compromised politicians and their shameless agents, who because of their desire to please their slave masters, are ever ready to sabotage our collective interest. A million of them cannot deter us in our quest and unstoppable march to restore Biafra in the shortest possible time.”

“We are equally aware that Biafran politicians serving Nigeria in Abuja and other places took an oath to be ‘faithful, loyal and honest’ to Nigeria which for some of them means subjugating their fellow citizens to the devilish whims of the caliphate masters in core north. So, we expect them to honour their pledge the same way those of us serving Biafra in different capacities have pledged to serve her with the last drop of our blood and make sure it comes into existence in our time.

“The ungodly statements from Biafra politicians is an encouragement to us because it only serves to fire up our determination to restore our lost identity and freedoms. We quite understand that they are under the influence of whatever it is their masters fed to them but in time they shall all be put to shame or worse.

“IPOB is well organised the world over and solidly built on an immovable rock. Mere words cannot change our strategy nor will it dent our resolve to restore Biafra in every truth and honesty. But our assurance to them is that in the end, they will regret their actions. The day of reckoning is fast approaching.”

Published

on

The Deputy leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Uche Mefor has cleared the air on purported rift with leader of the pro-Biafra group, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Recently, the social media space was filled with news of Mefor’s alleged disagreement with Kanu.

It all started after Mefor publicly advised that IPOB should not get involved with religious politics but rather focus on the struggle for an independent Biafra nation.

Mefor’s advise came against the backdrop of Kanu’s attack on Christianity and pastors during one of his recent broadcasts.

Clearing the air on the alleged misunderstanding between him and his Principal, Mefor wrote:

“The leader of IPOB is Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, my leader.

“Our conscious quest for/commitment to the guarantee of all the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all is the only way of guaranteeing of the viable,virile and egalitarian Biafran state we aspire to. It is the Biafra with the capacity to defend her citizens from aggression by the enemies and where rule of law reigns supreme with the attendant strong regulatory and enforcement institutions.This is ultimately an inexonerable reality and the irreducible minimum. We have no choice here!

“**Note*This is part of our periodic public interest devotional on this our collective quest for our collective self-emancipation.”

“To Hell With Your Biafra” — Uwazuruike Roasts Nnamdi Kanu

Published

on

Founder of Biafra Independence Movement (BIM) Chief Ralph Uwazuruike has said that Biafra should not be realized if it would be a place where elder statesmen and religious leaders would be insulted and dehumanised.

He lambasted the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, for using the London-based Radio Biafra to haul insults and abuses on Igbo leaders and elders.

Uwazurike said this in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Social Media Matters, Comrade Emma N. Nnadi, and made available to reporters on Sunday.

He said Kanu, who he trained as one of his directors in the struggle, was now using the Radio Biafra to insult and blackmail “our elder statesmen like Chief Pete Edochie, Nnia Nwodo, Church and Muslim leaders in the country.”

Uwazuruike apologized to all the people that have been insulted by Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB and blackmailed by Radio Biafra or any other Biafra news channels anywhere in the world.

He stated that in the new world order, the right of individuals to freedom of worship is allowed, stressing that “as Biafrans, we are not religious bigots.

“If the new Biafra will be a country where the freedom of religious worship will not be guaranteed, to hell with it.

“If the new Biafra as a country will not be better than Nigeria, to hell with it.

“If the new Biafra will be a nation where someone like Chief Pete Edochie, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Chief Nnia Nwodo, Alhaji Asari Dokubo (Elabo Edi Abali) and every other elders of the church in the land will be insulted and abused with all cheerful boldness, to hell with it” .

“Ndigbo should forgive the uncouth and irresponsible character” of Nnamdi Kanu.
