THE RESPONSE OF THE CUSTOMARY GOVERNMENT OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA CG-IPOB TO THE INCIDENT IN ABAKALIKI , EBONYI STATE BIAFRA(NIGERIA).
The Customary Government of Indigenous People of Biafra (CG-IPOB) is shocked to hear that one of the peaceful activities organized by the Director of Political Education and Governance of Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria (MOBIN) – Evangelist Joe Agbo was disrupted by a bunch of thugs suspected to have been sent by the Governor of Ebonyi State – Gov Umahi. The event was to mark Evangelist Agbo 50th birthday celebration which coincided with 50th anniversary of declaration of independent state of Biafra by Gen. Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, the Peoples General and hero’s day in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.
We wish to raise an alarm for the introduction of this cankerworm and remind Gov Umahi that during the South Sudanese war of independence, President Al Bashir of Sudan, used some South Sudanese thugs called Janjaweeds militia (men on horse) to terrorize the southern Sudanese towns and villages, killing their people, burning houses, raping women and girls, and looting wherever they attacked. Since the activation of this sickly innovation, the lives of Southern Sudanese have never been the same. Today, fraternal war has continued to devastate that young nation years after independence.
The event of 27th May 2017 at Abakaliki Ebonyi State Biafra(Nigeria) has initiated a new dimension in Biafran struggle for restoration of sovereignty, where Governor Umahi used thugs to disrupt a peaceful but legal activity of Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria (MOBIN) in Biafra land.
The Customary Government of indigenous people of Biafra (CG-IPOB) wishes therefore to alert the world of the emergent of this new but highly obnoxious innovation which if not condemned and checked by all peaceful people of the world can chart a new route to the ‘South Sudanese experiment’ in Biafra. The Customary Government therefore condemn in totality the introduction by Ebonyi state Government of this dangerous move into the indigenous people of Biafras’ peaceful approach to freedom.The Customary Government is equally appealing to all peaceful people of the world to rise up and condemn this recent move by Nigerian government of occupation to introduce the South Sudanese experience into Biafra land.
It is very regrettable that Ebonyi State Governor, Mr. Umahi could allow himself to be used as a willing tool to set into operation this dangerous trend of instigating a brother against his brother inside Biafra land. We wish to remind him that setting brother against his fellow brother in Biafra cannot be allowed and tolerated in whatever form or means. The world cannot afford to have another South Sudan in West Africa. The leaders of peaceful world should therefore rise up in total condemnation of this beastiality in Governance in Biafra land.
The Customary Government of Indigenous People of Biafra cannot accept Gov Umahi’s explanation that Abuja was not comfortable with the conference ,and that DSS mounted pressure on him to stop the event.That explanation was unintelligent as the same conference on Biafra was allowed in Musa Yarudua Centre, Abuja few days ago where the Vice President spoke on Biafra. If DSS was interested in stopping the conference in Abakiliki as opined by Gov Umahi , why using Government agent led by Mark Onu to disrupt the event? Is DSS afraid to invite the organizers of the event for interrogation? Customary Govt of IPOB wishes to put it on record that should anything happen the Evangelist Joe Agbo,a preacher , an academia and an activist per excellence , Gov Umahi will have the entire Biafra people to confront.The battle line has been drawn and going forward ,we shall view Ebonyi state as the seat of Government of occupation .
CG- IPOB wishes to thank all Biafrans for their resolve to remain peaceful and non-violent in this struggle for freedom despite all provocation by the agents of Nigerian Government of occupation. It is our fundamental human rights to be free as a people. It is our inalienable rights as indigenous people created by God to be allowed to live and manage our affairs unhindered by anybody in free world of democracy and freedom. We cannot continue to be caged and fettered in a world that proclaim liberty to all men of God.Biafrans have the right to enjoy freedom like any other human being created by God.
The Customary Government of Indigenous People of Biafra ,once again call on all Biafrans to remain law abiding throughout this period of celebration to remember our departed Heroes who died defending this land that we may live.
Freedom to Biafra!
Freedom to indigenous people of Biafra!
Freedom to all who desire it!
