FG Amends Charges Against Nnamdi Kanu, Lists Lawyers As Accomplices

<SUNBIGHT>~Nigeria~Orie~18th May,2022 @ 15:21 WAT~ChannelsTV

THE Federal Government is set to re-arraign the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, on an amended six-count of treasonable felony.

The amendment came on a day the trial Judge, Justice Binta Nyako fixed to hear an application Kanu filed to be released on bail, pending the determination of the charge against him.

A member of Kanu’s legal team, who craved anonymity, says the FG had in the amended charge, listed some lawyers representing the embattled IPOB leader, including Misters Ifeanyi Ejiofor and Maxwell Opara, as accomplices of the defendant.

It is gathered that the FG alleged that the said lawyers, were constantly in contact with Kanu after he jumped bail and fled the country.

Justice Binta Nyako had on April 8, struck out eight out of the 15-count treasonable felony FG preferred against Kanu.

Justice Nyako held that the charges were mere repetitions that did not disclose any offence that could be sustained by the proof of evidence before the court.

Scenes from the court showed Kanu, his lawyer Mike Ozekhome and supporters in triumphant celebration over the amendment.

FG had in the counts that were struck out, purported that Kanu had through his broadcasts, incited members of the public to not only stage a violent revolution but to attack police officers and also destroy public facilities in Lagos State.■

MASSOB AND IPOB ARE NOT EXCLUSIVE TO BIAFRA

Written By Chima Onyekachi

<SUNBIGHT>~Opinion~Nkwo~12th May,2022 @ 06:19 WAT

THIS is purposely to inform my esteemed readers that IPOB and MASSOB are pro-Biafran groups but are not exclusive in seeking the right to self-determination of the people of Biafra.

I want to inform every foreign embassies, emissaries, high commissions and diplomatic posts that the people of Biafra are not restricted to members of IPOB and MASSOB but these are Indigenous peoples domiciled in the old eastern region of Nigeria and suffered greatly a genocide between 1967-70.

This is specifically to appeal to the British High Commission in Nigeria on its decision to exclude Indigenous Biafrans from all asylum and human rights claims made in the UK.

As much as its decision is for those persons affiliated with IPOB and MASSOB,  efforts must be made not to enforce the commission’s decision to non-members of these pro-Biafran groups.

Though it must be noted that the proscription of IPOB by the Nigerian government has an ongoing law suit filed by attorneys of the directorates of IPOB for the de-proscription of the pro-Biafran group as a terrorist sect.

I beg to question, on what ground is MASSOB also included in the exclusion for asylum in the UK?

The UK government must understand that Indigenous Biafrans are been targeted with  violence including killings by the Nigerian security forces for seeking the right to self-determination as recognized by international laws and instruments.

Indigenous peoples rights are collective rights. In essence, they are vested in Indigenous individuals that organise themselves as peoples.

The international community clearly affirms that Indigenous people require recognition of their collective rights as peoples to enable them to enjoy human rights.

Also, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples articulates in its Article 1 & 2 that Indigenous peoples and individuals are: free and equal to all peoples and individuals and have the right to be free from any kind of discrimination in the exercise of their rights, in particular that based on their indigenous origin and identity.

The British High Commission should understand that the right to self-determination in Nigeria is grossly abused by the Muhammadu Buhari led government as he openly disclosed in a press interview with Martin Dennise of Aljazeera in March 2016 in which he blatantly refused to watch the video clip of the shooting and killing of peaceful IPOB demonstrators which occurred in Aba, Abia State.

The UK government must accord to Indigenous Biafrans the same respect and human rights protection as accorded the people of Scotland seeking the same right to self-determination.■

BNL Black Marine Squad Denies Killing Of Oil Workers

<SUNBIGHT>~Biafra~Eke~27th April,2022 @ 19:03 WAT

Report By CHIMA ONYEKACHI

THE armed wing of the Biafra Nations League [BNL], ‘Black Marine’ has denied responsibility for the killings of two oil workers during an attack on a military gunboat in Abana, a coastal area of the Bakassi Peninsula.

In the early hours of Tuesday, an attack was reported at the Abana Waterlines involving the armed freedom fighters and a gunboat on a joint military patrol of the Nigerian and Cameroonian security forces.

The attack reportedly took death casualty of a sailor and an oil worker, with scores injured.

The Black Marine were the suspected attackers linked to revenge as a commander of BNL was killed in his home located at the Idadeto area of the disputed peninsula by Cameroonian security forces.

A high rank member of BNL pleading anonymity to SUNBIGHT MEDIA, described the allegation as false, disassociating the group from the attack in the Gulf of Guinea.■

Opinion: Bakassi Marks Cameroon Takeover Of Peninsula

<SUNBIGHT>~Opinion~Nkwo~24th April,2022 @ 14:57 WAT

20 Years Today: Bakassi marks Cameroon takeover of Peninsula

Is 20 years today that a part of the Eastern end of the Gulf of Guinea, an oil rich Peninsula, was transferred to Cameroon after a tough fight , both armed and legal battle between Nigeria and Cameroun.

Today’s release by Cross River government that the old names of towns in Bakassi remains unchanged, confirms my broadcast few days ago when I gave reasons why we will not recognize those foreign names imposed on our territory, I also recalled many times we have pulled down Cameroonian billboards and flags from the Peninsula.

I’m happy, we are speaking for the people and the people are hearing us, no doubt BnL is carrying all Biafrans along in the liberation struggle.


As a freedom fighter without ethnic sentiments, I studied the issues, I had sympathy for the issue, I carried everyone along in the question for freedom.
Today the history of the Peninsula is incomplete without mentioning me and without mentioning BnL, as I have seen already researchers placing me after Tony Ene Asuquo, the first Militant leader on the screenshot posted below, it shows that out efforts in liberating everyone is being counted, and I’m glad.

Our struggle is for everyone within the defunct eastern territory to get justice, and the only justice is a separate entity where easterners will govern themselves, we fight for everyone and that’s why we bring to the notice of the public issues affecting all our people especially in our areas of operations.

As a household group in the Peninsula today, we have raised consciousness of how people in the region are being intimidated by external Forces, and how the refugees on the Nigerian sides of Ikang wards are also facing torture by Nigerian security operatives whenever they protest, through our activities the long forgotten issue of Bakassi is still fresh in memories.

What many people do not know about the blockade of Biafra.

Recall that in 1975, at the end of the Biafran war, the both countries (Nigeria and Cameroon) led by Yakubu Gowon and late Banjamin Ahidjo went into an agreement known as ‘Maroua Accord’ which saw the defeat of Biafra as it’s main purpose, they had agreement on how to control the territory with defined boundary hence Cameroon was able to fulfill it’s task successfully in 1968 blockade by preventing Biafra troops from direct link to the outside world when they first raised their flag in Bakassi and blocked the entire Peninsula, this enable Nigerian Troops of ‘Operations Tiger Claw’ to disarm Biafra troops at Ikang-Cameroon borders, and Atimbo in Bakassi and Calabar respectively.

Later on when oil was discovered, Nigeria under the administration of Gen. Sani Abacha broke the ‘Maroua Declaration’ by deploying troops to reclaim the territory, it led to armed conflicts, and later the Cameroon government opted for legal battle and headed to the international court to defeat Nigeria.

The transfer of sovereignty was facilitated by Olusegun Obasanjo, and when that happened, natives of Bakassi decided to arm themselves, groups like Bakassi Freedom Fighters emerged, led by Tony Ene Asuquo who had mobilized Ijaw Militants to join forces with Bakassi Militants, Movements for emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND) and Southern Cameroons People’s Organization (SCAPO) joined the fight, according to his second in command who briefed me months ago said Ene had two options, one option raised by SCAPO was for him to join the Ambazonians, second suggested to him was to proclaim a separate entity, and he opted for an independent Republic of Bakassi which lasted for weeks following his death due to fatal accident, his second in command who later took over from him is still alive, and has been a good mentor.

A lot of people do not know what the argument in court that favoured Cameroon actually was,
In the case, Nigeria with its unprofessional lawyers relied solely on the 1960/61 referendum granted the Southern Cameroons to leave Eastern Nigeria, which Bakassi abstained from voting, and also the fact that the tribes have been part of Nigeria without making references or giving convincible reasons while the Peninsula should remain part of her, while Cameroon, very tactical with it’s legal gurus relied on the Anglo-German Treaty, a colonial treaty which fully placed Bakassi under Cameroon, the treaty also placed some Eastern tribes like the Ejagham, Boki and Usakedet under Cameroon (Southern Cameroons),

The treaty which Nigeria could not trash out in court, was technically dismissed by BnL when we made the ‘Ekukunela Declaration’ in Ikom in 2016 with copies circulated online, exposing the evil behind it, and why it is against the wishes of the people, most important points we raised on that resolution was that African territories were shared among European masters , and that indigenous tribes were never consulted about their rule, and so such treaty is an act of annexation of indigenous tribes territory.

And on the other hand, we have never respected even the maritime borders because we do not move To and Fro with international passports in the region , and that is how it will remain until we take capture the main maritime borders and stop the flow of oil which is the reason behind the ‘Greentree Agreement’ between Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Paul Biya.

It’s 20 years remembrance.

National Leader,
