My Worry Is How To Achieve Biafra” – Ikedife

The Convener of South-East Elders Forum, SEEF, and former President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr Dozie Ikedife, has said he is not bothered about an Igbo man becoming Nigeria’s President in 2019 or after.

Ikedife said what bothered him was how the Biafran State could be realized, adding that the Igbo had been victims of unfulfilled promises in the past.

Speaking with the Sun over the weekend, Ikedife said, “There are so many unfulfilled promises and our people often fall victims to lies.

“If someone has deceived you for about two or three times, if he comes the fourth time you will have a second thought. One is just tired of this country.”

“What bothers me is how to realise Biafra through legal and diplomatic processes, and through dialogue without fighting or abusing anybody. That’s my position,” Ikedife said.

Biafra: Military has turned Nnamdi Kanu, parents into ghosts – Family

Family of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has expressed anger and worry over the conflicting reports concerning his whereabouts

The family, speaking through Prince Emmanuel Kanu, called on the military to tell them where their parents and son, Nnamdi are.

Ever since soldiers invaded the house of the Kanus late last year, both the IPOB leader and his parents had not been seen or heard of.

Spokesman of the family, Prince Emma Kanu made the call yesterday following fresh rumours making the rounds that Nnamdi Kanu and his parents had been traced to Ghana and Umuahia respectively.

Emma said, “If the military knows Nnamdi Kanu and my parents’ whereabouts, they better let us know and provide them without delay. If they know where they are, they should go and bring them, it’s as simple as that. How come my parents are with us in Umuahia and we cannot see or communicate with them? It’s impossible; they know what they are doing.

“Is it not the same military that denied the invasion of our house that came out now to say my parents are in Umuahia and Nnamdi in Ghana; they should go to Umuahia and bring them, let’s see or go to Ghana and bring Nnamdi Kanu let’s see.”

The other time, some people said they saw Nnamdi Kanu going to London through Malaysia, others have said they saw him in Germany, Ghana and Cameroon. The military will soon come out to say they saw him in Kano. It’s like my brother has now become a ghost that he should be seen everywhere.

“If this is so, it goes to confirm our fears that the military who took him away when they raided our home last year had killed him and his ghost is now moving about in those places.

All this are tissues of lies being propped by the military with the intention of diverting attention from people asking them where my parents and brother are. All these are tissues of lies from the pit of hell being junked out by the military thinking that will stop the family, Biafrans and the international community from asking them where they kept Nnamdi and his parents because they (military) saw them last

“All we are saying is that they should allow us see Nnamdi and our parents because we know they are with them; where they are dead, they should release their corpses to us for burial. I thank them so much for the information they are giving us, they should do us more favour by telling us exactly where they are so that we will go and meet them.
“The Nigerian army is known for telling lies, even when they invaded our house they lied they never did even when they were confronted with hard evidence they still lied about it. They are a set of people who lie so much and they will continue to lie.”

Buhari Chickens-Out Against IPOB Protest, Rented Supporters To Counter IPOB In London

The feud between Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and the Biafran Apex group The indigenous people of Biafra seems endless.

Buhari while trying to protect the unity of Nigeria have apparently subjected the people of Biafra into unlawful killings and Arrests hence IPOB staged a peaceful protest in Westminster London yesterday in other  to draw the attention of the world on the ongoing injustice perpetuated on Biafran Agitators by Nigerian Armed Forces.

As anticipated, Buhari rented crowds to cheer ,herald and to promote Nigeria in London so that World Leaders may feel that all is well in Nigeria, whereas Nigeria is far from been well and prosperous amidst Insecurity, Unlawful Arrests of Biafran members , state sponsors killings, among other multifarious challenges facing the drowning Nation of Nigeria.

IPOB demonstration have a clear cut out; To ask Nigeria government to produce Nnamdi Kanu, conduct Biafra Referendum, To stop Nigeria government from the incessant killings of Biafran… Whilst the rented crowds in solidarity with Buhari have no clear cut, lacks vision and purpose.

Igbo Remains Most Marginalised Tribe In Nigeria – Nwodo Cries Out




Regards the palm-belt in the South-East Nigeria, Ibibio is the most ancient of all the ethnic groups in Nigeria and in the new Biafran Nation State.

According to Robert Mckeon, the Ibibio are probably the indigenous natives from whom most small tribes of Qua Ibom and Calabar are descended. The early settlement of Ibibio in the area led to the development of a number of sub-clans, notably the Anang, the Efik, the Oron and the Ekid. Talbot said, “That at about 7000BC, permanent settlement of some of the ethnic groups in Ibibio land had already begun, and note that the Ibibo language is probably the most ancient of all the semi Bantu languages.

The Ibibo tribe is the fourth largest ethnic sets in Nigeria, and barely outnumbered by the Igbo, our neighbor. However, Nigeria was and has been ever since, classified by the Royal Niger Company in 1914 as having only three major ethnic groups namely: the Hausa, the Yoruba and the Igbo. Available evidence indicates that the original homeland of Ibibio is at Usak Edei in Cameroon. According to Ford and Jones, the Ibibio settlement in Usak Edei then forms small tribes in the Kumba division of Cameroon. Upon leaving the Cameroon territory, part of Ibibio arrived at their present location following some major directions.

Probably, about 8000BC some group reached Nigeria by overland routes and settled at Ibom. From Ibom, some of the Ibibos spread to Abak, Uyo and Ikot Ekpene and other areas of what is known as the mainland of Cross River State.

Other Ibibios came to the mainland by sea. These include the Uruan, Oron, Eket and Ibeno. The split of the sub-group (now called Efiks) from their kin-fold, the (Uruan) seem to have started by about the 16th Century. The Ekid people came to the mainland by sea. In 7000BC, three Hebrews, Shobab, No’-gah and Abi-i-tal arrived the coast of Atlantic Ocean at Esuk Ubuong known and called Ine Akpautong presently. This is one of the deepest and widest seaports in Ibibio ethnic group. Talbot, who for many years conducted anthropological research among the Ibibios, suggested that the Efiks started to claim a separate identity by about 1600AD. He wrote, soon afterwards, a section of Ibibios expelled either by the oncoming of Igbos or inconsequence of a defeat at the hands of a town of their own tribe (Uruan) migrated to old Efik town near Ikoneto.


Ibibo society consists of villages, each of which belongs to larger units known as the “Clan” the Clan was often named after the founder of the first village in the area. Each Ibibio village is independent and equal in status. The villages consist of individual families which comprising the husband, his wife/wives, children and grand parents. The society is mostly polygamous with formerly large families. In Ibibio land, age is venerated. The respect is extended to the elders that come from several cherished convictions. The oldest male of the family is often chosen as the head of the village, unless he is incapacitated for any reason. In the Traditional setting, those family meetings, village councils or Traditional Rulers Councils lay down laws and regulations for the governance of all units. For the enforcement of these laws, each Ibibio village has its own Ekpo and Ekpe society before the arrival of Christianity which inspires the believers’ heart through the Holy Spirit with love, joy, hope, peace and mercy; and they are expected to rejoice because of the abundant help He had provided for His church.


The Ibibio largely engaged in farming, fishing and trading. While farming is the principal occupation of the Ibibio upland, the river side Ibibio traditionally work as fishermen at fishing port commonly known as INE. Trading is done by middle men who act as brokers between the producers of good and the consumer. Outside the farming and fishing season, the Ibibio traditionally spend their time with various recreational activities, with games and sports like wrestling, swimming, oyo, ekara and nyori.


As observed by G. I. Jones and Darryl Ford the word Ibibio is both an ethnic and linguistic terms. All the Ibibio speak and understand the same language; IBIBIO. The dialectal differences among the various Ibibio groups can be attributed largely to the long period territorial isolation between groups. This variation in the Ibibio language reflects adaptations to divers’ contacts and social differences of various Ibibio groups. With reduced interaction, the speakers of Ibibio tend to form variants of their language. Thus the major dialect of the Ibibio language includes the Uruan, (now popularly referred to as EFIK), the Anang, the Oron, the Ekid and the Ibeno dialects.

This is the history of the happy people of IBIBIO TRIBE!

IPOB replies Nwodo on his call for probe of army massacre of Igbos

– PRESS RELEASE, April 11, 2018 –

‘Why no reasonable person should believe the lies of Nnia Nwodo regarding call for probe into army massacre of IPOB members during Operation Python Dance‘

We the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and it’s leadership wish to clarify that we continue to hold Chief John Nnia Nwodo, South East governors, Nigerian Army and some Lagos based political errand boys responsible for the murder of dozens of agitators during Operation Python Dance II which they initiated. Chief Nnia Nwodo and South East governors, especially Dave Umahi and Okezie Ikpeazu along with their cohorts, stained their hands with the blood of the innocent whose only crime was to stand up for their right in defence of the honour and dignity of the Igbo race and entire people of Biafra.

Nnia Nwodo and his fellow band of murderers in the person of Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Willie Obiano, Rochas Okorocha, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi must know that our people are now enlightened enough not to accept their gimmicks and lies. Nwodo’s call for the Nigerian Army to probe the massacre in Abia and Rivers State is medicine after death.

There was no justification for Nnia Nwodo and South East governors to betray or sabotage the efforts of Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB who were merely trying to rescue their nation Biafra from the hell Nigeria had become. The damage of Operation Python Dance has already been done. Those that perished as a result of the actions of Nnia Nwodo and South East governors, will never again rise from the grave. Therefore, it will be foolhardy for Ohaneze Ndigbo and South East governors to act as though we have all of sudden forgotten the event of the 14th of September, 2017 that occasioned the killing of our vibrant youths in cold blood and possible murder of our leader and his parents.

John Nnia Nwodo and his associates in crime will never exonerate themselves from such crime against humanity by merely offering warm words at a function in Enugu. Selfishness, jealousy and envy made them to act ignominiously and now they are beginning to realize the gravity of what they did on that fateful day of September 14, 2017.

Any probe of the military invasion of Igboland and killing of IPOB members at Afaraukwu Umuahia, Isiala Ngwa, Aba and Obigbo Igweocha must start with the role Nwodo, Umahi, Ikpeazu and other governors played. They cannot join hands with the spirit of the dead to kill at night, then join the living during daylight to shed Crocodile tears at the funeral of their victims. Those IPOB members slaughtered by Fulani soldiers died because Nnia Nwodo, Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu wanted Nnamdi Kanu killed at all cost in order to stop IPOB and please the north who threatened to kill Igbo people living in Northern Nigeria if Biafra agitation is not stopped.

We urge the public to carefully scrutinise the statements of Nnia Nwodo, Okezie Ikpeazu and Dave Umahi during and immediately after the military siege at our Kanu’s compound between 10-14 September 2017 to find answers to many questions regarding the role these Igbo men played in masterminding the slaughter of their own people.

In publicly available statements, Nnia Nwodo and Okezie Ikpeazu especially, admitted that Nnamdi Kanu and some of his supporters had to be killed as sacrificial lambs to save millions of Igbo lives in the North. People should go back and research the contents of the press briefing Nnia Nwodo gave titled “Why I parted ways with IPOB” in the aftermath of Operation Python Dance II. We find it baffling that Nnia Nwodo would belatedly, full 8 months after the heinous crime in Umuahia, be calling upon the Army to bring to book their soldiers implicated in the massacre, as if they (Ohaneze Ndigbo and Igbo governors) were not the people who actively initiated and supported the killing of their children in the first place. Ohaneze Ndigbo and Igbo governors are on record as being the only group in the history of the world, not just Nigeria, to call for the killing and extermination of their own people.

Nnia Nwodo wants IPOB to allow him hold his Igbo summit so he can celebrate his presumed victory over IPOB and dance on the grave of our fallen brothers and sisters. We can never allow him commit such sacrilege.

There will be no Igbo one Nigeria restructuring summit anywhere in Igboland unless they openly and unashamedly campaign for a referendum to ascertain the wish of the people of Biafra. Nnia Nwodo and South East governors has made themselves enemy of the people and must not allowed to continue playing with the life of our people.

They should not waste their energy dreaming and talking about restructuring as that would further alienate them from having a say in the affairs of the people of Biafra. One thing is certain, you cannot eat your cake and have it back, John Nnia Nwodo should do himself honor by tending a resignation letter than to wait until he is forced to bail out in disgrace. Enough of their arrant nonsenses, period!

The Forums For CHOGM

London, 16 th – 18th April 2018

The week of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting ( CHOGM ) begins with four forum events, bringing together representatives from the worlds of business , civil society and government .

The forums offer an opportunity for Commonwealth dialogue and provide a platform for wider debate of some of the key issues and challenges, in advance of discussions by leaders at CHOGM.

For the first time, all of the Commonwealth Forums will come together in the same venue on a single day to discuss shared agendas, forge important new partnerships and celebrate common interests.

Business Forum

The Commonwealth Advantage – with its shared values, regulatory systems and language – has the potential to increase intra-Commonwealth trade by 20% and reduce the cost of doing business between member countries by up to 19%.

Attracting an audience of business leaders from across the Commonwealth, along with heads of government and ministers, the Commonwealth Business Forum will discuss practical ways to enhance trade, showcase investment opportunities and promote sustainable development.

Organised by the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council, in partnership with the City of London, the Business Forum has become one of the key events in the Commonwealth calendar.

Commonwealth People s Forum

Civil society plays a key role in helping the Commonwealth develop innovative solutions to global development problems and holding governments to account for their commitments.

The Commonwealth People’s Forum, organised in partnership with the Commonwealth Foundation, is the single largest opportunity for civil society to engage with leaders and influence policy.

The People’s Forum also helps showcase and celebrate the shared values and cultures of Commonwealth nations and highlight the diversity of our global community.

Commonwealth Women forum

The inaugural Commonwealth Women’s Forum was held at CHOGM 2015 in Malta, with the ambition of accelerating gender equality and promoting women’s rights in the Commonwealth and beyond.

The 2018 Women’s Forum will reflect on some of the global challenges still faced by women, as part of a wider commitment to “leave no one behind” in the Commonwealth journey to 2030.

The Women’s Forum will draw international delegates from the Commonwealth and the rest of the world to highlight women’s positive political, economic and societal contributions and establish how women and girls will be key to building sustainable and resilient societies.

Youth Forum

The future of the Commonwealth depends on its one billion young people.

The Commonwealth Youth Forum provides an opportunity for the young people of the Commonwealth to build cross-cultural connections and networks, debate the challenges facing its young people, and agree youth-lead initiatives to influence decision makers and ensure young people have a voice in its future.

The agenda for the Commonwealth Youth Forum is developed by an International Taskforce, made up of young leaders from across the Commonwealth, working in partnership with the Commonwealth Youth Council (CYC).

The Youth Forum also incorporates the CYC General Assembly and elections.

Civil War: How US, other world powers planned to help Biafra – Mbu

A former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mathew Mbu, has made a new exposition into the Nigeria Civil War.

The former Minister said United States of America and other world powers were planning to change the history of the war by eventually backing Biafra.

Mbu said had the civil war lasted longer, America would have intervened and come on Biafra’s aide.

According to him, the World Powers had great sympathy for Biafra but preferred the option of exploring a more flexible federation for Nigeria.

He said this in an autobiography the he left behind to be published by his family.

The book entitled “Dignity in Service,” is due for public presentation on Tuesday next week at the Yar’Adua International Conference Centre, Abuja.

He wrote, “The regions should have a little bit of autonomy; that was the issue throughout those 30 terrible months of the civil war.

“The first Biafran cabinet meeting was held and articulated in Enugu by our head of government, Col. Ojukwu, and after subsequent meetings in Umuahia and Owerri, he summoned leaders of thought and took a resolution.

“The United States and other major powers had great sympathy for Biafra.

“One fear that haunted other African nations was that if Biafra breaks they would also break up.

Their enormous sympathy for Biafra notwithstanding, they preferred the option of exploring a more flexible federation for Nigeria.

“Had the war lasted longer, there would have been a major intervention that would have changed the history of the civil war by the major powers. It was good it ended when it did.

“The suffering as being portrayed outside, the suffering of children on humanitarian ground was too compelling to ignore.”

He said, “My greatest worry is about the Igbo nation and its long thirst to taste the position of the president since the Biafra war, nearly 50 years now. On this note, I use this medium to sound a warning to my people. They must not be deceived by those trying to divert their target in 2023.

Breaking: Archbishop Throws Unflinching Supports For Biafra Says Nigerian Govt Treated IPOB Unjustly

The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, John Cardinal Onaiyekan, yesterday decried how the Federal government handled the issue of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), lamenting that injustice was meted out on them by incessant and unlawful Arrests of her members, gruesomely killings by Nigeria Army and other Security agents in the country.

He also faulted the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government’s adamancy in refusing to proscribe armed Fulani herdsmen as terrorists.

Speaking at his Abuja residence during an interactive session with a faith-based group, Catholic Singles Forum (CSF) monitored by EbonyiDaily the Archbishop said: “The federal government was quick to declare Biafra agitators as terrorists. But Fulani herdsmen are killing people today and similar action has not been taken against them.”

If something is not done about the security situation in the country, people will keep losing faith in the government and others might soon pick up arms to defend themselves,” he warned.
