Biafra Rally Took Place In Finland In Simon Ekpa house But He Was Hiding -IPOB



Last Updated on July 18, 2023 by Fellow Press

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned people following the acclaimed Nnamdi Kanu’s disciple, Simon Ekpa, to retrace their steps before it is too late.

The pro-Biafra group noted that the agitation for Biafra was not for criminals and scammers who were paid by the Nigerian government to create insecurity and criminality to blackmail IPOB and Kanu.

IPOB in a release by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said a Biafran rally held in Finland on July 7 near Ekpa’s building but he failed to come out.

Commending its hardcore members who attended July 7, 2023 Finland rally held at Lahti, Powerful explained that it was part of IPOB’s global sensitisation agenda on the plight of Biafrans and illegal incarceration of their Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, adding that the rally would continue around Europe.

The group said, “IPOB leadership commends all and sundry who participated in the just concluded rally to educate the people of Finland and the rest of the world that IPOB is a peaceful and one organisation without any factions. It is unfortunate that during the epic event at Lahti, Finland, the self-acclaimed Biafra Crime Minister was nowhere to be found.

“Finnish people wondered why the so-called Biafra Prime/crime minister didn’t show up to address his people but chose to hide even when the rally took place in front of his apartment building. We thought he dared IPOB to come and protest in Finland, but at last, he was nowhere to be found. How can a true IPOB member hide from fellow Comrades?”

The group said, “We are using this medium to warn the ignorant followers of this scammer and one room Crime Minister to retrace their steps before it becomes too late. It is obvious that there is nothing in the fish brain. The message has been passed to Finnish people so that they will not be deceived.”

It unequivocally stated that Biafra agitation was not for criminals and scammers, while insisting that those contracted and backed by the compromised Nigeria Security and government to enforce a non-existing sit-at-home will be held accountable someday.

“Many days are for a thief, but one day will be for the owner of the house. Let the public be notified that IPOB led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu never ordered and enforced any sit-at-home in Biafra territory.

“We want to pose this question to some media houses especially local media and a few foreign media houses who present the infiltrator as factional leader of IPOB or Biafra Prime Minister (PM), why did he not come out and address his fellow comrades who came to visit him, if he claims to be an IPOB leader?”

IPOB spokesperson, however, appealed to the media to stop conferring on Simon Ekpa credibility by making him appear as if IPOB has a factional leader. “There is nothing like that.”

The statement partly read: “If the leader of the auto pilot criminal group, the master scammer and agent provocateur called Simon Ekpa is an IPOB member, why was he not present or refused to attend the IPOB protest and rally held in Lahti, Finland at the front of his apartment building close to his residence in the city of Lahti, Finland on the 7th day of July 2023? This was the protest and rally ground in that city and was only a few poles from his living quarters?

“We also want the public to be aware and recall that our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, categorically said in his numerous and landmark broadcasts on Radio Biafra that IPOB does not belong to the Kanu family. IPOB is a well structured and organised movement by Biafran volunteers in all parts of the world seeking the exit of Biafra from Nigeria through a referendum.”

Tinubu increasing poverty instead of reducing it– Labour Party



President Tinubu

Last Updated on June 19, 2024 by Fellow Press

The Labour Party has expressed its disappointment over President Bola Tinubu’s statement which it described as making a mockery of Nigerians as poor.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Obiora Ifoh, who said this added that the President needed to be reminded that he was elected into office to reduce if not eliminate poverty and not increase it.

He was reacting to President Tinubu’s statement that Nigerians were not the only ones suffering from poverty.

According to him: “We are disappointed but not surprised by the comments made by President Ahmed Bola Tinubu about the excruciating poverty his administration’s policies have unleashed on Nigerians since he took office over a year ago.

“It was to say the least disheartening to hear Mr. President mock his citizens by saying Nigerians are not the only ones facing poverty.

“Assuming but not conceding that what he said is true, Nigerians who are at the receiving end of his harsh economic policies don’t need to be reminded about the pain and hunger they have been forced to live with by the very people who put them in that situation in the first place.

“May be this administration needs to be reminded that it was elected to reduce if not eliminate poverty, hunger and disease but what we have seen is an obsession with opulence.

“We are yet to get over the billions appropriated for the renovation of the President and Vice President’s lodges, now we hear they want new jets to join the Presidential fleet.”

He said the nation’s schools and health institutions were on their knees and the same government claims it cannot afford to pay public servants a living wage but has enough to make itself comfortable at the expense of the suffering masses.

He implored the President to uphold the constitution he swore to protect, adding that the constitution says the security and welfare of the populace shall be the primary purpose of the existence of the government.

Gunmen kill three while enforcing sit-at-home in Anambra communities



Last Updated on June 19, 2024 by Fellow Press

Some gunmen, who were enforcing sit-at-home, have reportedly killed many people and injured others in two Anambra communities.

The gunmen invaded Nnewichi community in Nnewi north LGA and Nnobi community in Idemili south LGA, on Monday morning.

At Nnewichi community, the gunmen were said to have invaded a hotel after discovering that some persons were having a meeting there. The gunmen started shooting sporadically at the hotel premises, while destroying properties.

The assailants were said to have killed Oseloka Ubajiekwe, head of the vigilante group and chief security officer of the community, while he was attempting to wade off the attackers.
Those who sustained injuries have been taken to various hospitals in the state. At Nnobi community, the gunmen shot sporadically to scare away residents and engaged in gun duels with security operatives.

Confirming the attacks in a statement, Tochukwu Ikenga, Anambra police spokesperson, said only three persons, including a 22-year-old lady, have been confirmed dead.

“The commissioner of police, CP Nnaghe Obono Itam, has ordered an immediate manhunt operation on the armed men operating in a red Highlander jeep, who abducted a citizen in Nnewi by 1:30 pm yesterday 17/6/2024 and were trailed to Nnobi, where they engaged security operatives in a gun battle,” Ikenga said.

During the gun duel, one of the security operatives was fatally hit by the bullet and due to the indiscriminate shootings by the hoodlums in an attempt to escape the scene, the bullet also fatally struck two innocent passersby in the area.

“The police responding team at the scene recovered the bodies of the victims and took them to the hospital but regrettably, three of the victims including a 22-year-old lady were confirmed dead by the doctors on duty while two others are currently receiving treatment.”
