 IPOB/DOS Needs Our Loyalty And Unflinching Support

It was in 2017, just days after his release from Kuje prison, Abuja, and while negotiating with the South-East governors on the best way forward, the murderous invasion of his father’s house by the Nigerian military, was staged, killing and maiming many. The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, eversince, has relentlessly proven that the movement was not a one-man show. 

He does not call all the shots. That is a notable quality of a well structured and enlightened movement. In many of his educative broadcasts, he had analyzed how the 1967-1970 genocidal war was sponsored by Britain, against Biafra. It was executed through the arming of Fulani jihadists for economic exploitation and domination of Eastern Nigeria. Kanu's analysis of the factors that formed the loss of the war, hinged on economic annihilative war which can be classified into three. 

Those factors are: the absence of strong and robust media presence, the lack of vibrant diaspora and diplomatic community and the lack of military alliance and equipment. The complexity surrounding the reasons birthed the setting up of a functional movement that has strong coordinating units, became imperative. This coordination is supported by Command and Control structure. 

The setting up of the Directorate of State (DOS) of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), as the highest decision making arm, resulted from detailed and cohesive reasoning and resolution of chosen Biafrans within the circle of the struggle. 

The Head of the Directorate of State, Mazi Chika Edoziem, has really proven himself alongside other members, as loyalists to Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. By carrying on with his orders as well as steering IPOB activities, they deserve commendation for their feats. This has continued with the setting up of the objectives of the organization through the unadulterated continuation of the fundamentals already laid down. Such can be seen in the swiftness with which they pointedly navigated the British and Nigerian governments' co-sponsored attacks, as well as the enhancement of Radio Biafra broadcasts. 

The strong and well coordinated diaspora protest, diplomacy exampled by the quick and timely intervention in the recent Ghanaian abusive arrest of IPOB members, are all inherent efforts. The IPOB leadership is strengthening the already existing alliances and working round the clock, to ensure that more of such, comes on stream.

What IPOB has so far done with its legal department is quite commendable, especially with the demand for the release of the IPOB leader and of course, the court case instituted in the United States of America, against the Secretary of State and his Defense counterpart. The last thing the DOS needs now is absolute concentration and focus, not distraction. It needs our unflinching support in order to continue to lead and produce results for millions of Biafrans. 

Stephen R. Covey, in his famous book: "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People", reiterated the importance of synergy. This simply implies that every single member of IPOB and even lovers, have respective roles to play. They should be headed in the same direction, knowing that Biafrans' faith is doomed in One-Nigeria delusion. There is need to be undivided loyalty to the DOS in the absence of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. This should be esteemed. Biafrans' role must be full and unbroken support to IPOB, Eastern Security Network (ESN), through both online and offline platforms. 

Such support is also relevant through donations and intercessory prayers. As IPOB wins and rises and as we see daily, the results that the Nigerian contraption is rapidly disintegrating, must not loose sight of these required ingredients as above mentioned. Discipline remains the watchword for decorum and relentless match to freedom. As we all have unwavering respect and support for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the DOS should in the same way, be respected. The recent attack on the IPOB leadership (DOS), by sponsored elements in Nigeria and elsewhere, are really unfortunate and must not be allowed anymore. 

Therefore Biafrans, must stand strong and tall. Be proud of your heritage, lest the enemies win and celebrate. Never relent in what you rightly believe in and also strongly remain being whom you are. The hatred and the persecution being endured, shall definitely become history someday. One Igbo adage says: "Onye ji mmadu n'ala, ji onwe ya", meaning that "he who has someone pinned to the ground, also has himself on the ground". Let us stay focused!
