Senator Chris Ngige: Biafrans should be dealt with like Boko Haram.




This was Ngige's response when asked about the Biafra struggle by a journalist:

Biafra? What Do You Mean By Biafra? Senator Chris Ngige Asks Journalist. Nigeria’s minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige has finally opened up on the protests by the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) for a sovereign state.

The former governor of Anambra state, who spoke with Naij.com in Alor, venue of his late father’s funeral ceremony, insisted that there is nothing like Biafra. According to him, the protesters are only a group of discontented people, a situation which is not peculiar to the eastern part of the country where they are domiciled.

When asked what he thinks about the incessant protests by the pro-Biafrans, he noted with a lot of assurance, that the protesters are to the east, what Boko Haram is to the northern part of the country and the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) in the southwestern part of the country. He said, therefore, that there is really no need for Nigerians to panic about their presence or activities as they would be handled the same way others were dealt with by the federal government. “Biafra? What do you mean by Biafra?” he retorted rhetorically when asked about the struggle by the protesters. “There is no struggle anywhere. There is even no agitation. It is just discontent.” “In Yoruba land, they say they are OPC, Oodua Peoples Congress; in the Niger Delta, they say they are militants; in the northern part of Nigeria, especially the northwest and northeast, they say they are Boko Haram. They are against western education. They say that it is from western education that they learn how to steal money. “So, it is discontent.

The people who say they are doing Biafra agitation are the same thing and they will be handled the same way others have been handled. Dialogue!” the former Senator quickly added.

Nigerian forces continues the killing and maiming of Biafrans.






Today at Aba, a young Biafran protesting peacefully for the release of Nnamdi Kanu and freedom for Biafra was brutally shot dead by the Nigerian forces sent by Buhari.

Another young protester was strangled and dumped by the road-side.

This is appalling but will not stop Biafrans from protesting.

Nnamdi Kanu must die by hanging: Rochas Okorocha.

 
 
The state Governor of Imo state (ROCHAS OKOROCHA) openly told members of the Igbo Elders Forum at the state house that they should be grateful that Buhari apprehended a criminal and terrorist like Nnamdi Kanu who deserves to be persecuted by hanging.
 
He told them that Biafra has long been dead with Ojukwu and not even Amadioha can resurrect it, that very soon many youths will loose their lives in the name of this struggle. On behalf of all the state governors in the Eastern region, we have unanimously agreed with President Buhari not to release that terrorist and troublesome boy who does not know his root. Nigeria will remain as one and the Igbos will be part of it.

Oshodi market: Ohaneze Declares Ambode As ‘Number One Arch-Enemy’ Of Ndi Igbo



Ohanaeze Ndigbo has declared Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode as number one enemy of Ndigbo.

The development is sequel to the demolition of Oshodi market, which is believed to be largely occupied by Ndigbo on the first week of the New Year.

National President of the Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, made the declaration alongside the National Secretary, Okwu Nnabuike saying Ambode by his actions had drawn a battle line between himself and the entire Igbo land.

“It is instructive to observe here that contrary to all principles of common justice, the traders were merely given few days quit notice. It is equally shocking that the government chose such a wrong time for the demolition exercise, thereby not only taking the shops from them but making sure that their wares were looted.”

“We are forced to ask: could this be the starting point in implementing Oba of Lagos’s earlier threat during the election period that Ndigbo would be thrown into the Lagoon? Could it be another round of deportation of exercise, similar to what former governor Fashola did? These appear to be so considering that a witch cried in the night and a child died in the morning.”

“It is quite inhuman for people’s means of livelihood to be taken away from them in such a manner. The government’s claim that arms were recovered from a section of the market does not fly at all here because it cannot be a reason for such a wicked treatment purely targeted on a particular people.
“We demand that the Governor of Lagos State should direct relevant government agencies to adequately compensate these traders; anything short of that, Ndigbo will henceforth regard the Governor as their number one arch-enemy”.

The group further demanded for adequate compensation of the traders who had suffered great losses as a result of the demolition.

While describing the demolition as “an action done in bad faith”, the group wondered why the Lagos State Government should carry out such act at a time when it clearly knew that the owners of the shops were in their villages for the Christmas and the New Year festivities.
