A Desperate Government That Kills Its citizens waving her flag Can Kill its Policemen to blackmail IPOB


Daily Trust, a Nigeria online Media domicile in the Northern part of Nigeria have reported the claim of Nigeria government that IPOB, a peaceful group, moving for the restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra gruesomely killed 3 Nigeria policemen. According to them, the claim was made by Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Nigeria minister of information.

The report reads in part

“We have credible information that ASP Francis Idoko (AP No. 154945); Inspector Emmanuel Akubo (AP No. 222336) and Inspector Rufai Adamu (AP. No. 285009), all serving officers of the Nigeria Police, were abducted by members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), acting on the instructions of their leader, Chinonso Okafor, aka TEMPLE, on 27 Nov. 2021.

“Two of the officers, Inspectors Akubo and Adamu, were killed in the most gruesome manner and their decapitated bodies videotaped and circulated widely. The leader of the ESN team that killed the two officers is one ‘GENTLE’.

“Chinonso Okafor, the most influential commander of ESN in charge of Imo and Anambra states, as well as ‘Gentle’ and all those who perpetrated the abhorrent act, will be made to face swift and sure justice,” the minister said.

Reading the above quote, a foreigner might think it is true, but those that know Nigeria government and how they operate knew that it is a concoction made up to blackmail IPOB. Looking at the online video that generated this report, one will quickly wonder how ESN, whom were formed just to confront Fulani Herdsmen terrorists ravaging the East, will suddenly start beheading policemen and even go to the extent of shouting that they are ESN. Where is it done? How can one go to rob a bank and be shouting his name for all to know that he is the one robbing a bank? Who does that?

Recall that Nigeria government have played this same game before. It was in ANAMBRA, South Eastern State. Nigeria police told News Men that IPOB members robbed First Bank in Onitsha and mounted Biafra Flag in the bank. Again, ask yourself this question how can a freedom movement that have been sponsoring itself for more than 12 years suddenly start robbing a bank? And even if they want to rob a bank, why should they go there with their Flag? Are they that insane? Who will believe that story? No one goes to steal with his pictures or ID cards, only to drop them there. The Nigeria government blackmail of indigenous people of Biafra is rather becoming childish.

A country with questionable integrity can't be trusted. A country that opened fire on her own youths while they are waving the country's flags and singing National Anthem can murder her own policemen, just to blackmail IPOB. Is it not the same Alhaji Lai Mohammed that denied the killing of these youths at Lekki Tollgate even after a panel set up by Lagos State Government submitted a report proving that Nigeria government through her military actually opened fire on those youths.

Since Nigeria government kidnapped Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya and rendered him to Nigeria, they are working desperately to establish a case against him. Realizing that extraordinary rendition is a crime, they are now trying to blackmail IPOB, probably to have something to hold on to. Nigeria government should understand that they can't jail Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. It is of no use killing your own policemen and recruiting people to keep shouting 'we are ESN'. The world is already aware of the evil going on in Nigeria, especially under the present APC government.

Self-determination is a fundamental human right and no one deserve to die all in the name of trying to deny a people this fundamental right. Human life is sacred and must be respected.
