President @MBuhari resists as self acclaimed “High Respected Igbo Greats” try to make him commit Obstruction of Justice in the ongoing criminal trial of Nnamdi Kanu despite the doctrine of Separation of Power.
In the following Washington Times op-ed, Ivan Sascha Sheehan argues why the U.S. State Department should designate the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as a foreign terrorist organization (FTO). For him: “The U.S. had correctly prescribed terror labels to other secessionist groups that employ these tactics – the ETA in Spain, the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka, and the PKK in Turkey. Now the people IPOB claims to represent, the Igbo, are even seeking to distance themselves from the group. So why hasn’t the U.S.?
“With the “Biafra” Conundrum featuring like a recurring decimal in the Eastern Nigeria Sphere of the wider angry debates on the future of the Igbo in the distressed Federation of Nigeria, it has become pertinent to remind us of the Choices we have made or been perceived to have made as a People by the rest of Nigeria, as well as the outcomes we can expect from those choices,” Tony Nnadi writes in Opinions.
Who faces justice for murder of Nd’Igbo by Nnamdi Kanu as the Sen. Ike Ekweremadu-led Southeast NASS caucus tries to obstruct justice by intervening?
In the Atlantic Post Opinion Section, Martin Ezimano writes: “It was Biafra, contrary to popular misconception, that the supreme storyteller Chinua Achebe had in mind in choosing the title THERE WAS A COUNTRY.”
In the Atlantic Post Opinion Section, Martin Ezimano writes: “IPOB’s vision of Biafra is therefore as a nation at war in which situation democratic rights like freedom of thought and speech stand as collateral casualties! Alternatively expressed, a Biafra of zombies!”
“Where Ojukwu’s Biafra had been driven by sheer desperation, borne as a survivalist reaction to the calculated pogrommatic agenda of the then Federal Military Government, Uwazurike’s Biafra was built upon the cry of marginalization…” Martin Ezimano writes in Opinions.
“For Biafra remains a compelling metaphor of resistance against injustice, oppression, inhumanity….and genocide. The metaphor remains compelling because the issues it sought to address are, tragically, still here with us,” Martin Ezimano writes in Opinions.
Tony Nnadi of LNC has described the ongoing Igbo Genocide in Obigbo, near Port Harcourt, as a direct outcome of the recklessness of Nnamdi Kanu of IPOB.
