Nigeria: Appeal to release Nnamdi Kanu, and to stop Nigeria Government from ongoing massacre of innocent Biafrans and forced disappearance of young Biafrans and IPOB members in Biafraland and in Nigeria
INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA, UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF NNAMDI KANU, APPEAL TO MINORITY RIGHTS GROUP INTERNATIONAL :
Esteemed Minority Rights Group International ,
the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB) would like to bring your attention to what is happening in Nigeria between Nigerian Government and Biafrans. I'm sure you must have heard of Biafra and the civil war between Nigeria and Biafra called "Biafran War" between 1967-1970 in which more than 3 million Biafrans died. Today, after 45 years nothing has changed, we Biafrans are always been targeted by the Nigerian government, being killed every day.
They made us slaves of conquest for years but today Biafrans want to be free, we want our Freedom. We want our nation of the Republic of Biafra. Silence or the support of the British government in 1967 to Nigeria, by virtue of time has proven to be a mistake and should be corrected. Civilization must be free of hypocrisy and it would be in the interest of civilization to correct the mistakes of the past through the unequivocal support of the movement of Biafra (IPOB). Biafra land produces the resource that sustains Nigeria, the resource is exploited to their ruin. Biafraland is contaminated and leaves Biafrans in poverty and vulnerable to disease. The wealth gained is shared among Nigerians and excluding Biafrans and Biafrans die in Biafraland and in the Mediterranean Sea, trying to cross Europe for survival.
The Department of State Service of Nigeria (DSS) kidnapped and arrested Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, a British citizen and Leader of IPOB and Director of Radio Biafra and Biafra TV on October 14, 2015 in Lagos, and he was accused falsely of engaging in terrorism and Treasonable felony. On the contrary, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu has been a quiet but outspoken leader, a leader who with his mouth wisdom and truth brought much needed attention to the situation of Biafrans. There were mega protests in all cities of Biafra in solidarity with the arrest and illegal detention of Mr. Nnamdi Kanu. Many Biafrans were killed and continued to be killed by the Nigerian government and Army during the protests despite the fact that Biafrans always protest peacefully and unarmed. Biafrans never killed or harmed anyone. We have suffered, we have been killed, tortured, enslaved and marginalized in Nigeria.
Since President Buhari was elected, human right abuses have become characteristic of Nigeria polity on the one hand the atrocities of Boko Haram against the population, on the other hand indiscriminate arrests, torture, extrajudicial detention and killings, extortion and violence committed by the military, the DSS and police have become an everyday phenomenon. Finally, the massacres by the police, army and navy of innocent unarmed Biafrans protesting peacefully around Biafra land in solidarity with their leader Nnamdi Kanu has gone down in the history of Nigeria as the only country where the Government promotes violence against the rights of the citizens with impunity.
We (IPOB) are fighting for the freedom of the people of Biafra. We have the right to self-determination and there is no intimidation or murders that can ever stop us. The people of Biafra are asking all the leaders of influential countries, human rights NGOs to intervene before there will be a repeat of the 1967—1970 saga. We demand the immediate and unconditional release of our leader Nnamdi Kanu.
I would like to bring your attention carefully on President Buhari’s planned war-like events against Biafrans at the Onitsha Niger Bridgehead have clearly revealed that the Hausa-Fulani segment of the Nigerian Army have declared a Second Civil War against the Indigenous People of Biafra;
On the 2nd and 17th December 2015, a total of 25 innocent citizens were killed at the same Onitsha Niger Bridge by the same Hausa-Fulani soldiers attached to the 302 Artillery Regiment of the Nigerian Army, Onitsha led by an Hausa-Fulani born Army officer, Col Issah Abdullahi. Over 40 innocent citizens were also critically injured following live bullets targeted at them and shot at close range. The two butcheries resulted to instant death of 21 innocent citizens while four others shot at the chest, head and abdomen regions of their bodies died later in hospital as a result of deadly injuries sustained. In the 2nd of December killings, 13 innocent citizens were shot dead and over 20 sustained deadly gunshot wounds. At the Multicare Hospital alone, 14 critically shot citizens were admitted, out of which, four died. And in the 17th of December killings, 8 innocent citizens were murdered by soldiers and 20 others sustained deadly gunshot injuries, out of which, 13 were admitted at the Multicare Hospital alone. The Government of Muhammadu Buhari is dangerously pushing the Biafrans to the wall. It has started with open and unprovoked mass shooting and killing of unarmed innocent Biafrans for exercising non-violently and peacefully their constitutional and treaties’ rights;
On Day-1 (February 9th, 2016) of our 4-day protest, a combined team of the Police and Army shot dead 8 persons in Aba while Abia state, Imo state, Igwuocha coordinators including other members were taken away. They also took the corpses without letting any one picture them.
In addition, the military also set National high school Aba ablaze and will tell the world that IPOB did it.
The world must know the truth, including what Buhari and his murderous agents are doing in Biafraland.
An eyewitness at Aba protest ground said the following:
"Army man told me yesterday that reason why they withdrew them from north east to southeast is to kill any one who mentioned Biafra. He said that the orientation giving to them by Buhari was that since one of their main duty is to defend the unity of this country there is no need keeping them in the north, afterall boko haram is never a threat to the unity of Nigeria but Biafra.
Go and kill them without mercy, we can take care of bokoharams, Buhari told them. He said that am very lucky he is not with a gun, my life would have been wasted. The army personnel said they have come to revenge the death of their Boko Haram brothers on Biafrans."
Here is a video where you can clearly see the Nigeria Police and Army shooting live bullets and killing innocent unarmed and peaceful Biafrans while they were just praying to their God:

ENUGU: BUHARI'S SECOND GENOCIDE ON BIAFRANS CONTINUES
Enugu, Biafraland, is undergoing a series of attacks with AK47, machetes, swords and explosive devices by the new Janjaweed of Nigeria, the Hausa/Fulanis Herdsmen since Monday the 25th of April 2016. The nature of these violence from the Janjaweed-Fulani Hersdmen aims to weakening, hitting and blackmail the Biafrans and the Indigenous people of Biafraland (IPOB). These terrorist Hersdmen are influenced and under the command of Buhari's government, in order to execute an Ethnic cleansing plan and to create the conditions for achieving a deal between the Head of the State of Nigeria and the Hausa-Fulani Hersdmen (i.e Grazing Reserve Bill).
The start of the season for the attacks was decided during some restricted meetings of the " Regional Commission " attended by the Fulanis Hersdmen, Buhari and Enugu State governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi. During this secret meeting it was established a terrorist program of actions against the Biafrans in particularly in Enugu being the gateway to the north and the capital of Biafra.
Soon after, during a second secret meeting held on the 28th of March 2016 (attended by Buhari, Enugu State Governor Igwuanyi, Willie Obiano, Rochas Okorocha and many others Biafra governors ) in which it was decided to initiate the attacks and were established new targets and communities to hit. It was decided and worked out a strategic and "restricted" plan, which included the murder and mass massacre of Biafran communities starting from Enugu. The ongoing genocide in Biafra is one of the bloodiest episodes in the history of Africa of the 21th century . Since 3 days now more than 700 civilians of Biafran ethnicity in Enugu were systematically massacred (with strokes of firearms , machetes and studded sticks).
Mr Ugwuanyi as governor of Enugu State, did nothing while these Fulanis terrorist killed his people in Enugu state. Rather than keep attacking Buhari for keeping quiet and going the extreme to resolve the issue, he declared fasting and prayers Instead of reprisal attack. Enugu Governor Ugwuanyi recommended hunger strike for mourning people. Pathetic. This Man is a balless criminal Igbo governor. These unceasing slaughtering of innocent Biafrans by the Fulani herdsmen terrorist in most parts of Biafraland requires immediate meeting of the 17 governors in Biafra and its traditional rulers. But where are they? Everyone seems deaf and dumb in front of these slaughtering.
But above all this, the ongoing war by the Fulani herdsmen, have only confirmed Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) a prophet and visionary, who saw tomorrow. Mr Kanu correctly predicted over the Radio Biafra, what the Fulani would do to Biafrans in Biafraland and that's what all are seeing happening now in Enugu State, Biafra.
Hausa-Fulanis herdsmen, Muhammadu Buhari and all these bunch of evil and corrupted Governors in Biafra will surely have to answer for their crimes one day before history and, above all, before God, and they are going to pay with the same death and with their blood.
Biafrans has been killed once again in Agatu and Enugu State by Hausa Fulani herdsmen but the most gruesome killings happened On the 30th of May 2016 at Nkpor, Anambra State, during Biafrans 50th years heroes day anniversary where there was a massacre of over 120 unarmed and nonviolent citizens of Biafra by Nigeria Army. This genocide was perpetrated by security forces through President Mohammadu Buhari and Governor Williiams Obiano of Anambra State directives. The innocent blood of Biafrans is flowing in Biafraland while the world keep quite. Biafrans has been killed by Boko Haram, Fulani Herdsmen terrorist and now by Nigeria Army and Police for no reason. Nigerian Soldiers massacred innocent peaceful and unarmed Biafrans in cold blood. Later that night on the 30th of May 2016, the Nigerian Army took away 90 corpses of Biafrans killed and buried them in mass grave inside Onitsha Barracks. As if that wasn't enough, on Thursday, 2nd of June 2016, between 10.30am and 11am the soldiers stormed Nnewi Teaching Hospital and abducted eight of the deadly shot victims from their hospital beds and took them to unknown destination till date. The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) residing in Northern Nigeria and in Biafra have be killed and massacred in great numbers. Furthermore, many have also been driven away from their homes and their business destroyed, these have been occurring on a daily basis. In fact, the incessant violence directed towards Biafrans in Nigeria has now turned Nigeria into a failed state. As a result, there is no other option within Nigeria for Biafrans than the restoration of the Sovereign State of Biafra.
This heartrending video you are about to see will shock you down to your bone marrow, it clearly shows where combined men of the Nigerian force without provocation shot dead members of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) on May 30, 2016 when they were peacefully celebrating their Biafran Heroes and Heroines Remembrance Day in Nkpor, Anambra State. This video clearly shows Nigerian Army shot Biafran men already injured who was hiding in a gutter at least to avoid them, unfortunately they saw him, they rolled him out from the gutter and shot him straight away.
WARNING: The video below is highly upsetting:
