IPOB condemns release of killers of Igbo woman in Kano

~Vanguard Nigeria. Sunday, November 6, 2016.
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has condemned the release of the five suspects who allegedly murdered an Igbo woman, Mrs Bridget Aghaneme, in Kano over alleged blasphemy by the court, describing the judgement as concocted.
It however, said that the judgement had vindicated its position that there were different laws for different people in the country.
IPOB's Media and Publicity Director, Comrade Emma Powerful, who made this known in a statement in Enugu also, wondered how a magistrate court which had no jurisdiction to try murder cases could release murder suspects without the connivance of the Kano State government.
The suspects included Dauda Ahmed, Abdulmumuni Mustapha, Zubairu Abubakar, Abdullahi Abubakar and Musa Abdullahi.
The statement read, "We, in the IPOB worldwide condemn the recent judgment delivered by the magistrate court in Kano State in favour of the killers of Mrs Bridget Aghaneme who was murdered in broad daylight in Kano state by the Islamic fundamentalist.
"We condemn the judgment in its totality. The magistrate and the government of Kano State were instrumental to the killing of an innocent woman who committed no crime against Islam.
"However, this is what IPOB preached that the Christians in Nigeria and the people of Biafra must leave the north and come back home and make their lives better by staying in a place where their lives will be protected. This concocted judgment by the killers in the northern part of Nigeria indicate that Igbo are not wanted in the northern territories.
"Again we are aware that the killers of the Christians and Biafrans have infiltrated the judiciary especially in the northern part of Nigeria.
"Otherwise, how can a well trained lawyer and a magistrate who attended so many seminars and course release a murderer who snuffed life out of a fellow human being to go scot free?
"This is a dangerous signal that nobody is safe again in the country…We are also aware that the arrest they made before taking them to court was a jamboree just in a bid to deceive the general public and cover their evil agenda against the people of Biafra but then we are not deterred in fighting for the restoration of God's nation, Biafra.”
We 're commencing internal revolution in Igboland - MASSOB

~The SUN Nigeria. Sunday, November 6, 2016.
The National Leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Comrade Uchenna Madu, has said that the Movement would commence what it called an internal revolution in the South East against the political leaders, whom he alleged have connived with the oppressors of Ndigbo.
According to him, those he referred to as the so-called political and religious leaders, he said, have continued to sabotage the progress of the people.
The MASSOB leader, who stated this yesterday during the 83 years post humous celebration of the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu held at the National headquarters of the Movement in Okwe, Onuimo Council Area of Imo State, said that most Igbo leaders have become cowards who are afraid to defend the cause of the people and that such leaders would soon be flushed out, as the movement would soon commence an internal revolution.
He said: "Some Igbo political and religious leaders have committed more harmful, dangerous and sacrilegious crimes against Igboland with their nonchalant attitudes and selfishness against our ancestors. It is clear that the Nigerian state has abandoned and neglected Igboland. The question is, why must Igbo political, religious, economic and traditional leaders complement our oppressors' deliberate policies against the survival of our people in Nigeria?
However, he said that the late Igbo leader, Dim Ojukwu is the only Igbo that his generation, present generation and future generation will continued to honour and adore as the symbol of the emancipation of Ndigbo.
"Today is November 4, which ought to be a special day in Igboland, a day set aside by God; a day the greatest Igbo man, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu was born. So, today we are celebrating his 83rd posthumous birthday.
"we gathered to reflect, refresh and revive the consciousness of Ojukwuism in Igbo land".
Meanwhile, the MASSOB leader has reiterated that the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) by the President Muhammadu Buhari regime would not break the resolve of the agitators to actualise the Sovereign State of Biafra, noting that he was himself detained by the Obasanjo Government for over three years.
" The continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu by the Hausa- Fulani government is part of the sacrifices that he has to pay for the struggle and we will not be deterred by that and don't forget I was also detained for over three years by the Obasanjo government, so it the sacrifice that we have to make to gain our freedom".
