The Actions and inaction of the President Buhari led Federal Government of Nigeria, the Nigerian Army and the South East Governors over the ugly scenario in Abia State and by extension; Igbo land is provocative and therefore, leaves much to be desired.
Nigeria’s grossly lopsided central Government and its genocide actors in the military must put in place N900billion (about $2.5billion) worth of 3000 new maximum security prisons and a daily feeding of N3billion (N90B per month and N1.08t per year) for custodial keeping and feeding of 3million members of pro Biafra groups led by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB); labeled “militant terrorists” by the Nigerian Defense Headquarters. Once these are done or provided, the Federal Republic of Nigeria will instantly surpass the United States of America as the country with largest number of custodial inmates (including prisoners and awaiting trial inmates) in the world.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the Leadership Team of the Directorate of State (DOS) hereby state that the time has come for the dismissal, arrest, and prosecution of Major-General John Enenche for contempt of court and usurping the roles and responsibilities of the Judiciary by unilaterally declaring IPOB as a terrorist organization without obtaining any court pronouncement. During an ill-informed and contemptuous press release, the 51-year old John Enenche stated that the Nigerian Army has declared IPOB a terrorist organization. This declaration is not only judicially provocative and belligerent, the Idoma-born army officer acted beyond the mandate of the Nigerian Army as specified in Sections 10 & 11 of CAP A20 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria (L.F.N.) 2004 and in Section-217(2) of the Nigerian fraudulent constitution.
The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to some stories in the media that it is withdrawing its troops from Exercise EGWU EKE II, crediting such information to Abia State Governor and the General Officer Commanding 82 Division Nigerian Army. This is not true. The Nigerian Army wishes to enjoin members of the public to disregards such rumours.
Abia State has for the past few days been the focus of security searchlight occasioned by the reported skirmish between some groups in the State, especially Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) with men of the Nigerian Army.
On 11th November 2015, the Nigerian Army issued a violent threat against protesting pro Biafra activists and their leaders in the Southeast and the South-south zones of the country. The Army also labeled peaceful assemblies especially those organized by pro Biafra activists as “treason and insurrection”. On 16th November 2015, the Nigerian Military through the Chief of Defense Staff issued a further violent threat and ordered violent crackdowns including shoot-at-sight against unarmed and defenseless pro Biafra protesters in Southeast and South-south Nigeria.
