Embattled leader of the proscribed separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, appeared in court

 Embattled leader of the proscribed separatist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, appeared in court

 On Wednesday dressed in a designer wear he wore when he was re-arrested and brought back to Nigeria in June 2021.

Seated in the courtroom with legs crossed, Kanu beamed with a smile as he took some time to pose for photos with his lawyers.

Kanu, 54, was born on September 25, 1967, at Afaraukwu, Abia State.

The secessionist leader is a holder of Nigerian and British passports. He had earlier jumped bail in June 2018 before leaving for the United Kingdom though he said that he fled because his life was no longer safe in Nigeria.

After about three years abroad, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), at a press briefing in Abuja on June 29, 2021, announced that the IPOB leader was re-arrested in a foreign country and extradited to Nigeria.

Kanu’s Lead Counsel, Ejiofor Ifeanyi, had said the IPOB leader was re-arrested in Kenya and whisked to Nigeria

However, there was confusion on Wednesday as Kanu’s team of lawyers staged a walkout over the refusal of operatives of the Department of State Services to allow some of them to gain access into the courtroom.

Though the counsel for the Federal Government and Director of Public Prosecution, M. D. Abubakar, urged the court to proceed with the trial in the absence of Kanu’s lawyers, the judge declined and adjourned the case till January 19 and 20, 2022, for trial.

Kanu’s followers in Nigeria had declared several sit-at-home orders in the South-East to protest his arrest and demand his release from the custody of the secret police.

The sit-at-home orders have been said to cripple economic activities in Imo, Abia, Anambra, Enugu and Ebonyi, especially on Mondays.

The proscribed group had also declared a sit-at-home which threatened the Anambra election but later called off the order.

BREAKING NEWS!! President Buhari Reportedly Escapes Plane Crash


BREAKING NEWS!! President Buhari Reportedly Escapes Plane Crash

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari and the UNGA delegation that travelled with him during his recent trip to the United States, escaped an air mishap after the presidential jet suddenly developed a fault while they were returning to Nigeria.

Buhari had on Sunday, September 19, 2021, travelled to New York for the 76th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

Sources told SaharaReporters that the aircraft, a Boeing Business Jet (Boeing 737-700) marked 5N-FGT developed a fault while the President and his entourage were returning to Abuja on Saturday, September 25.

The publication reported that the presidential aircraft left the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York at 12:08 pm, landed at Sable Island Airport around 5:24 pm and had a 3-hour stopover.

The Nigeria Air Force 1 then departed the airport for Santa Maria where it landed around 9:10 pm. From Santa Maria, it flew to Nigeria and landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Sunday, September 26 at 5:01 am.

Sources said the aircraft was subsequently moved to Euro Airport in Germany on September 29 and arrived at 4.15pm after leaving the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at 9.48am, with the Nigerian government paying €5,000 (Euros) (N2,385,000 at official rate of N477 to €1) per night as parking fee.

“The Presidential Boeing Business Jet registration number 5N-FGT developed a fault during his trip from New York. He travelled to Saudi Arabia with a smaller jet. A Falcon 7X jet with registration number 5N-FGV. No picture of his departure to Saudi Arabia was released to avoid the public knowing about the jet he travelled with,” a presidential

The one that developed fault has been moved to EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg, Germany for repairs since September. It is registered and operated under another name AMACGND. They intentionally hid it and parked it under another name because it cost €5,000 (Euros) for parking per night,” a source said



The Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Senator Uche Ekwunife, has restated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is a party founded on the principles of democracy, adding that the PDP thrives on issue-based politihcs. She expressed optimism that the people of Anambra will through their votes choose the PDP amongst other parties ahead of the November 6 governorship election.

Ekwunife, who spoke in Abuja on Tuesday, September 28, 2021, while addressing newsmen shortly after the meeting of the transport sub-committee for the upcoming national convention of the party, noted that the party would provide the needed leadership Ndi Anambra are yearning for, stressing that bad governance would be a forgotten history by the time the PDP reclaimed Agu Awka.

"In terms of provision of quality leadership and passion for good governance, PDP is the best alternative. This is very much evident in the performance of governors in PDP controlled states. In Anambra today, the party has a candidate who is sellable. Our candidate is working hard to ensure that the party emerges victorious and we are strongly supporting him", the federal lawmaker said.

Speaking further, Ekwunife who is also the chairperson, PDP state governorship campaign council stated that the mammoth crowd at the party's campaign rallies shows wide acceptance of the party by the people of the state. She stressed that Anambrarians have strong confidence in PDP and will vote in the party as a credible replacement for the ruling party in the state.

"When you move around Anambra, it is glaring that the people need a better infrastructure than they have today. They are yearning for a radical improvement in almost every sector of the state economy and are ready to effect the necessary political change that will guarantee a prosperous future for them and their children by casting their votes for PDP."

Senator Ekwunife further urged Anambrarians to turn out en masse, cast and protect their votes on the election day, assuring that their votes must count and no party would be allowed to rig the election. She assured that the exercise would be free, fair and credible, adding that security operatives would be on ground to ensure a hitch-free election.

Ekwunife reiterated the need for the government to address the current security challenges in the south-east, emphasising that the protection of lives and property remains the primary responsibilities of every responsible government.

"The killings being reported across the state is quite disturbing. Our people must understand that we cannot achieve our collective aspirations by spilling innocent blood."

"This upcoming election is not about the politicians but about the people. Efforts must be made by all stakeholders in the electoral process to ensure the conduct of a free, fair and credible election. I am certain that with PDP at the helm of affairs in the state, Ndi Anambra would be assured of productive, versatile and all-inclusive governance", the ranking Senator assured.

 All Must Hail BIAFRA We Move With None Stop


Down on my luck, I am so filled with revulsion seeing people whom I had envisaged to had known the real inferences of entertaining daydreams that will never come to pass, wallow in total ignorance. Does it actually mean that common sense is no more common in this generation of ours? Why would some individuals pursue persistently and energetically in order to obtain results from something that is impossible to achieve even after seeing the clear signs of embarking on a fruitless journey? 

To be honest, I just can't bring myself to a position where I'd be compelled to believe all the party aspirants especially Charles Soludo, Andy Ubah, and Ifeanyi Uba, running in the forthcoming November 6th, 2021 Anambra State gubernatorial election, till now, are yet to convince themselves of the fact that with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu still illegally detained in the department of state services (DSS) black hole, election in Anambra is definitely going to experience a very low turnout voters, if at all, anyone would even step out to vote for them.

I mean, why would these aspirants having witnessed the enormous power which Mazi Nnamdi Kanu holds in the entire Eastern region, having witnessed how all the 5 states in the South-East shuts down at the command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, they think that with Kanu still in illegal detention, Anambra Indigenes will consider going to polling units to thump print for them?

And to make matter worse, this same Mazi Nnamdi Kanu before his illegal abduction, torture and rendition, he gave the order election in Anambra will be heavily boycotted. Do these aspirants think that Biafrans have forgotten about the order even before the Head Of IPOB Directorate-Of-State, Mazi Chika Edoziem revalidated the Anambra election boycott?

No doubt, some have already began saying that boycotting Anambra gubernatorial election will give APC their needed opportunity to install their Fulani drone (candidate) in Anambra. Call it whatever you want because this is not the first time this kind of bogus claim is coming up. But the truth remains that until Mazi Nnamdi Kanu regains his freedom, not only the forthcoming Anambra gubernatorial election but other electioneering activities in the entire Eastern region will be massively boycotted. Nnamdi Kanu can't be illegally detained and you expect Biafrans to massively turn out to vote for you. You must be that man hoping to build castles in the air. 

 You think you know what's best for us? Voting for you to continue upholding that devil's book parading as the 1999 Constitution is not what's best for us because we have been voting for years but no positive results.

All of you aspiring to become the next Anambra State Governor should first of all, go and secure the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and then we might consider if we are to vote for you or not. But until that is done, ELECTION IN ANAMBRA STATE WILL BE MASSIVELY BOYCOTTED!!!

Some of you aspirants don't even know that anyone who works positively towards securing the immediate release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Biafrans might hugely turn out to vote for such aspiring individual. But here you are campaigning for election when the man with the authority to shut down the entire states with total compliance is still held against his wish. Isn't that like chasing shadows? No problem, go ahead and let's see the outcome. November is




Christian World

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.  He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.  He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.  John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.  And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.  For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.  No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.  And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?  And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.  And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.  Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?  He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.  And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.  And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?  John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;  He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.  These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.  This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.  And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.  And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.  And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.  And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.  Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;  And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!  And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.  Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?  He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.  One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.  He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.  And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.  The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.  Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.  Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.  And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.  Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!  Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.  Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.  Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.  And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

IPOB- Ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo on BBC’s HardTalk reveals while the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), are angry with Nigerians’ leader especially on President Buhari’s administration.


IPOB- Ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo on BBC’s HardTalk reveals while the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), are angry with Nigerians’ leader especially on President Buhari’s administration.

 My friends who are not from the East of Nigeria where Igbos come from often ask me why there is so much anger in the East and among Igbos. Some wonder why, despite the famed Igbo” wealth’ and enterprise all over Nigeria, the people still complain that Nigeria is unfair to them. Some insinuate that the anger comes from the loss of the 2015 election by Jonathan who the Igbos heavily backed.

And why is it that the current generation of Igbos is so angry as to contemplate carrying arms against the country? With lots following Nnamdi Kanu of IPOB with his secessionist message.

Those not following Kanu may despise his antics and rhetoric but are sympathetic to his underlying message. And what is that message? That Igbos don’t feel wanted in Nigeria.

That decades of official marginalization and discrimination should be stopped or they should be allowed to take their chances in a new nation.

First, for those who think this is all about Jonathan and Buhari. It is not. Igbos were disappointed that Jonathan did not win. But those whose candidates lose elections lick their wounds. It is allowed.

It happens when your candidate loses the election. Why did the Igbos invest so many emotions in Jonathan, a non-Igbo from Ijaw? It was more because of the fear of their experience in the past 50 years. Nigeria has placed an embargo on any Igbo man becoming Nigerian president and Igbos understands this.

Jonathan was the next best thing. Other parts of Nigeria have supported their sons to the presidency. Some have bombed Nigeria into submission to get their sons to Aso Rock.

Igbos have little capacity to blackmail Nigeria to the presidency. They chose Jonathan as their “Igbo”. But that’s not to say that they are angry enough because he lost to contemplate going to war on his behalf.

Jonathan was not really the model of a President the Igbo would go to war for. And even his Ijaw people have accepted his loss.

So? Igbo anger has been building up in Nigeria since the 70s. As kids, people made choices in other parts of Nigeria school years based on the narrative of the Igbo place in Nigeria. They knew about the glass ceiling against Igbos.

After the civil war, despite the “No winner, no vanquished” program, Nigeria placed glass ceilings and no-go areas for Igbos. The war reconstruction program was observed more in the breach.

There was the “abandoned” property program that was introduced to drive a wedge between components of former South-East Nigeria.

While the country was too embarrassed to put the discrimination program down in an official gazette, it was there for anyone who cared to look. It was evident in the Igbo police officer who stayed in one position while less qualifies juniors progressed to become his bosses.

It was evident when no Igbo qualified to become the Inspector General of Police or lead any division in the armed forces. It was there when “sensitive” or “lucrative” positions were shared in Nigeria and Igbos were conspicuously absent.

It was there when Igbos were only fit enough to be made Minister of Information until Obasanjo administration came to power. And even recently, it was there when Buhari appointed 47 people to man the critical roles in his government and no one from the Southeast was there.

Any time there is a federal appointment in Nigeria, it’s usually the east that is left to shout. It was there from Buhari’s first term as a Military Junta to his second coming and any other time in-between.

The Igbo elite called it marginalization. Other Nigerians countered by saying no part of Nigeria was getting enough. Marginalization was universal. But they forgot something.

The Igbo cry of marginalization was an official policy. It was expected. It was programmed. And occasionally, key government officials let it slip that Igbos should not complain. After all, they fought a war with Nigeria.

Talk about No Victor, No Vanquished. There was a Victor alright. And they were reminded of that at every turn. Every appointment. Every national project was propagated with the glass ceiling in mind to contain the Igbos.

How can any nation grow when the leaders are mandated to keep a viable component of her resources subjugated and useless because of fear and insecurity? Nigeria was only pretending. Igbos were licking their wounds and complaining and the rest of Nigeria were too busy to notice.

Go to the South-East today. Since the 70s and the oil boom. Nigeria has invested in commercial industries across the country. None has been sited in the Southeast. None. Refineries, Steel Plants, Cement Firms. Any Industry.

  The southeast was systematically deindustrialized. Even when it was the best location for any industry, there was always a reason why it should not be sited thprogress

What this means was that any Igbo man that wanted to work in a commercial federal establishment had to leave the east. Add this to the indigenization policy of the early 70s that pushed the Igbos out of private companies. It meant that international companies also avoided expansion into the southeast.

The Nigerian Breweries, the Dunlop, and other such firms sited their plants outside the East and only set up distribution centers to sell in the region.

This is one of the main reasons the exodus of Igbos from the zone accelerated after the war and continues to this day despite the hostility they face in certain parts of Nigeria. And why most Igbos became traders and commercial businessmen. Access to organized work either in the government, government commercial institutions, and even commercial institutions was limited.

This concerted government plan worked so well that even Igbos began to hate themselves and hate to invest in their zone to this day.

The only industrial enterprise in the east is built by easterners; Nnewi, Aba, Onitsha. These are Igbo indigenous industrial cities.

The plan was to frustrate them from investing in their zone or force them to move the industry to North or West where it can be taken from them after getting them to transfer the technology.

This has been the practice since the end of the war.

In addition to this, the Federal Government has systematically made it difficult for Easterners to do commercial business even in the East.

The Federal Roads in the East are some of the worst in Nigeria. The Eastern Seaports have been made ineffective. It was a war to get the Enugu Airport upgraded to an International Airport.

The former Finance Minister shed tears on the day the first International Flight landed in Enugu. Yes, Okonjo Iwealla cried! Recently, it was only the South East that was conspicuously missing in the New Railway Plan of the Federal Government.

Nigeria has 6 regions and one was missing in a national railway plan while nobody cares. Incidentally, Igbos who reside in the east are the most itinerant in the country and would benefit most from a national transport plan. Even our President Buhari changed the plan to include his village but a major zone of the country was not included.

When you go to the east, despite the lack of federal presence, the presence of police all over the east tells a story. They mount roadblocks and make it difficult to have commercial activities to run smoothly. Recently, Customs has joined. And lastly the army. It is an occupied territory. They extort money.

They intimidate them by all means. They have recently started shooting and killing them.

Nigeria has made the east unlivable. They sponsor dubious governors, senators, and political leaders that take orders from the caliphate – Purposely, Carefully.

In conversations, people often accuse the east of being clannish or tribalistic. That is far from the truth. No group assimilates or blend in more than the Igbos. They claim Igbos are welcome in all parts of Nigeria, but outsiders cannot come to the East. The question is: why would anyone come to the east? To do what?

There is no business to do in the east. Nigeria has ensured that. Why would someone from the South West of Nigeria go to the East to invest? No one would prevent them. But it hardly makes commercial sense. Nigeria has ensured that.

Those from the North are there in droves. Igbos love to celebrate with cows. And the cattlemen go there to sell their cattle. No one molests them. In the villages in the East, these northerners live unmolested. But those are the only people who can find commercial reasons to be there! So those who wonder why Igbos are angry, wonder no more.

While most would not dare carry arms against Nigeria, don’t underestimate the level of disconnection and anger especially among the younger generation who feel hopeless and in prison for something they did not do.

Nigeria is made of nations that came together to form the country. No nation will like to remain in perpetual servitude or slavery. Igbos were at the forefront in the fight for Nigerian independence against Britain. If they did not allow Britain to subjugate them, they surely will not allow any local power or they may strike at the slightest opportunity at other pseudo dominating power over them.

That Nnamdi Kanu’s supporters starred down army tanks with sticks is a sign that the next generation will be ready to fight bare hands if necessary to stop Nigeria treating the Igbo nation as second-class citizens.

There will be fiercer and angrier Kanus in the immediate future if Nigeria does not officially stop the “vanquished “program against the Igbos who fought the civil war.

You cannot preach unity and indivisibility of the country on TV and all your actions point to discrimination against the components of the country. It is hypocrisy. It is as dangerous as it is foolhardy.

Let those who preach unity walk the talk and stop open discrimination of their countrymen. History has shown that you cannot decree peace. You cannot decree unity. You cannot force any group to belong to a country by force, it may work for a time. But never sustainable.

Nigeria has a lot to look forward to as a united country. It also has enough for the regions and nations that make up the country. Our diversity is a blessing. Our failure to reach our potential is caused mostly by the internal contradictions and the inability to build a fair country that can bring the best out of her component regions.

Those who shout most about loving Nigeria today are mostly those of its current unfair structure favor. But Nigeria will continue being as strong as its weakest link. And the weak links are all there to see.

The East is one of the weakest links. Until it stops being a weak link, Nigeria cannot truly make progress
