The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu on Saturday 21st July 2018, paid a condolence visit to Femi Fani-Kayode on the death and burial of his mother-inlaw, late madam Leticia Chinyere Chikwendu, at Umuire in Umuahia North local government area of Abia State. In an interview with the Family Writers Press, Dr. Femi Fani-Kayode expressed deep appreciation for the turn out of thousands of IPOB family members from different clans and provinces within Biafraland to condole with him and his family. He thereby requested that he be taken to the destroyed residence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the courageous and highly intelligent leader of the IPOB, by the Nigerian army which was murderously invaded on the 24th of September 2017, with a number of Biafrans killed. This he said was to enable him get on- the-spot account of atrocities committed.

Dr. Femi Fani-Kayode seeing the extent of damages carried out in the residence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu at Afara-ukwu, Ibeku in Umuahia, Abia State,  as he got to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in the company of IPOB family members, wept for such acts of inhumanity meted out against an individual who never killed, even in the 21st century. He expressed bitterness at the wanton destruction of damaged vehicles riddled with bullets amongst other properties within the compound. The highly enlightened freedom fighter and lawyer further gave the narrative of the massacre of Biafrans by the Nigerian military during the Nigeria/Biafra war between 1967 and 1970, which recorded the death of over 3.5 million Biafrans including men, women and children. 300 Biafran  combatants of Igbo extraction, serving then in Northern Nigeria, were secretly executed by the Nigerian forces. It was the raping and killing of Biafran men, mothers and young women which infuriated late General Odimegwu Ojukwu to wage a war of defense for the Biafra nation.

Analysing the present precarious situation in Nigeria, Dr. Femi Fani-Kayode emphasized that the only option, is through the instrumentality of a round table dialogue between the Nigerian government and the IPOB that will bring remedy. President Muhammadu Buhari has to engage the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in a meaningful and peaceful dialogue now or there will be absolutely nothing like election come 2019, most essentially because IPOB remains the heartbeat and voice of the Eastern region.

He called on the family members of the IPOB worldwide, to remain resolute and undeterred with their "Peaceful Method" in seeking for self-determination which is an inalienable right of the people as enshrined in the laws of the United Nations. Your dreams must surely be realized in the nearest possible future he re-echoed, pointing out that invaluable sacrifices have been made for this cause.

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has raised the alarm over fresh plot by agents of the federal government to allegedly re-arrest four of its members who were recently granted bail after three years of being in prison.

The group said it has uncovered plot by the military to invade the South-east and some part of South-south again, adding that part of the plan would be to re-arrest its members who were recently granted bail by the Justice Binta Nyako-led court in Abuja.

A press release by the media and publicity secretary of the group, Mr Emma Powerful, which was made available to DAILY POST in Awka, alleged that the move was geared towards intimidating the people out of pressing for the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who they claimed was whisked away by security operatives on 14 September 2017, after invading his house.

Part of the release read, “Plans are at advanced stages for another possible military invasion of the South East and parts of South South. We envisage another extra-judicial murderous attack on the homes of Nnamdi Kanu’s co-defendant that were only recently granted bail after spending three years in prison custody for a crime that does not yet exist.”

The quartet of Benjamin Madubugwu, Bright Chimezie, David Nwawuisi and Chidiebere Onwudiwe had recently secured bail more than one year after their co-defendant, Nnamdi Kanu was granted bail by the same court.

IPOB however chided the federal government over the purported plot, stressing that, “it is needless to emphasize that Justice Binta Nyako had, pursuant to application made in open court by IPOB lawyers, placed a ban on any form of threat or invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s co-defendants homes. The judge ordered that no security personnel should disturb their peace.”

Powerful further stated that, “We continue to demand that the military produce Nnamdi Kanu wherever he is being kept. The federal government of Nigeria is yet to formally respond to numerous queries from British government demanding an explanation on the whereabouts of their citizen.

“The Nigerian army’s involvement in the invasion and massacre of defenceless and unarmed members of IPOB present in Afaraukwu on that fateful day of 14 September 2017 is the irreducible and constant critical point of reference in any discussions regarding the whereabouts of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“It is a matter of common knowledge, backed by quantum and incontrovertible photographic and video evidence, that the murderous military invasion of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s home and his abduction therein by the invading soldiers was an occurrence which the international community and responsible human rights bodies, such as Amnesty International had severally indicted the Nigerian military.”

UNITED States Deputy Chief of Mission Nigeria, David Young, has urged the Federal Government not to allow perpetrators of deadly violence in many states get away with their crimes. Buhari and Trump He called for a crackdown on deadly attacks that have led to over a thousand deaths in various northern states. Most of the attacks are linked to herdsmen – farmers clashes. Young suggested ways the Federal Government could end the ongoing killings in Zamfara, Kaduna and Plateau states. While addressing journalists in Kaduna on Wednesday, Young described the killings as tragic and very complex to deal with. He explained that part of the solution to the problem would be for the government to arrest those behind the killings. Young, who said he visited the three states affected by the herders-farmers crisis, also said it was very important for justice to take place to stem the tide. He said: “As Nigeria deals with its issues of insecurity and violence, I know it is a major concern, that I heard about from people here in Kaduna as well as Zamfara and Plateau, about the issue of loss of lives and how tragic that is. It’s important to emphasise that for us (US) and our people, all lives are sacred and we mourn the passing and tragedy that happened. “I learnt that in Kaduna and Zamfara during my trip that all communities are touched by this violence between farmers and herders. All are touched by this violence and again it’s a tragic loss that we mourn and we stand in solidarity with people who lost loved ones. “I learnt that there are very complex causes for the criminality that we see across different states. I met with many people in Abuja as well and around the country and our team at the Embassy looked at these issues, talked to folks all across Nigeria. “With great concern, I realised that it is very complex and there is no particular simple solution that is easily available.”

The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), on Tuesday, warned the Federal Government to learn to save heavily from current improved crude oil sales for the rainy day.

CBN Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, who read the communique of July MPC meeting in Abuja, said the committee, while discussing the economic report, observed that as the prices of crude oil increased in 2017 and 2018, the monthly allocation to various levels of government also increased, suggesting that Federal Government was not conscious of saving for the rainy day.

He said the committee had called on the apex bank to continue to build on the progress already made in arresting the trend to sustain the moderation in food inflation.

Emefiele said the MPC noted with satisfaction the fourth consecutive quarters of growth of real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and the positive growth outlook in the domestic economy.

“This is shown by the sustained improvement in the manufacturing and non manufacturing purchasing managers indices in the second quarter of the year,” he said.

He said the committee was, however, concerned about the liquidity impact of the 2018 expansionary fiscal budget and increasing FAAC distributions due to rising prices of crude oil as well as the build up to election related activities.

On the declining foreign reserves from $47.7 billion in May to $47.2 billion in June, Emefiele said the development had nothing to do with politics as being insinuated.

“What is happening is as a result of US Federal Reserve Bank normalisation. Since the interest rate has gone up in the US, and other advanced economies, in an attempt to stimulate their economies, these money that moved into the emerging economies are now being taken back and this means there will be so much outflow of cash than inflows. And of course we have our own share of it.

“But it must be noted that Nigeria has performed better than other emerging markets around the world, with a stabilised exchange rate because we have been able to build enough buffers to support our currency and that is why the exchange rate has remained stable.

“Countries like South Africa and others have had their currencies depreciated but the Naira remains stable at N360/$ at this time,” he added.

On currency swap update, the CBN Governor said: “China remains Nigeria largest trading partner and we are saying that those trading can be paid for using renminbi instead of dollars, because people who are importing using renmimbi we are offering some discounts since we have this soft deal with the Bank of China and we are encouraging people to embrace the use of renminbi for trade between Nigeria and China.”

Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday lambasted the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, over his comment on lawmakers who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Following the defection in both the Senate and the House of Representatives, Oshiomhole had said those who left were “mercenaries” who were in APC just to win elections. 

However, Omokri faulted the remark, saying Oshiomhole was suffering from marrying “his daughter’s age mate.”

In a series of tweets, the former presidential aide said the former Edo State governor was talking like a small boy.

Omokri tweeted, “How can Oshiomhole say he is happy that defectors left when he went to their individual houses to beg them? Even yesterday, Buhari met with Kwankwaso to beg him not to go.

“This is what happens when an old man marries his daughter’s age mate. He starts talking like a small boy!

“Does Oshiomhole reason or is it the Lara effect that is affecting his judgment? Three days ago he was begging r-APC members not to leave.

“Two days ago he said he was not too proud to beg intending defectors. Now today he calls them ‘mercenaries’ and says he is happy they left!.”
