A High Court in Nigeria has since granted him bail. Hos lawyer told Elombah.com Kalu has met the conditions, but the DSS has so far flouted the order of Court and refused to release him.The ‪#‎FreeBiafraProtesters‬ have been organising peaceful rallies and matches in streets and State capitals in the South East and South South of Nigeria demanding Nnamdi Kanu's release and Nigeria government to allow the Biafrans self rule.

It is a long road to freedom for the Biafrans and Kanu, but surely they will get there. The sequences are no different from all other successful liberation movements around the globe. Elombah.com is a reliable news source.

It is very different... It has no intellectual basis. It calls for violence and hate.

If South south states don't follow the Igbos as is most likely.. Biafra will be landlocked in Nigeria, meaning the economy will be inevitably linked to Nigeria

At the end of the day, a peaceful, diplomatic path should be sought.

…Orders that no Biafran should attend the purported meeting called by Gov. Okorocha.The Supreme leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, who also doubles as the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, currently being extra-judicially detained by the Department of State Security (DSS), is hale and hearty and in very high spirit. We can report authoritatively that Nnamdi Kanu is being treated by the DSS as a “delicateand complex” (VIP) prisoner of conscience.Our team after several attempts was able to meet with the radical leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra at the facility where he is being held against his wish.He was beaming with smiles upon seeing our team and was as undaunted and fired-up as ever. He was completely in the dark as to the protest going on as a result of his arrest. But when he was briefed he said it was in line with his thought and urged that hell should be let loosed. He admitted that he has been well respected and treated by the detectives. He is being detained in an average hotel room size kind of cell, fitted with air conditioner; fan and television set that shows only Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) station. His meals according to him were tested by the person(s) serving them before he eats and that he takes only bottled water from NBC, which the men of DSS corroborated later in our conversation with them. From our interaction with some of the DSS operatives, they accepted the fact that the bail conditions have been met but maintained that they needed to authenticate the title documents presented whether or not they weregenuine, insisting that they would have to cross-check with Ministry of Housing. When we impressed on them that they should have long done the cross checking given the nature and caliber of the detainee and the interest it isgenerating, they then asked us if we can facilitate their going to the Ministry of Housing which we obliged. But reading them in between the lines, we deduced that their refusal to release him as granted by the Magistrate court was clearly deliberate, for there is no question about the documents presented with respect to his bail being genuine or not. They are ostensibly delaying his release till 18th of November when the case is expected to come up at the same court in other for them to press more (grievous) charges against him which the Magistrate court as an inferior court will lack jurisdiction to entertain and thus remanding him in prison custody. The lawyer handling the matter having sensed the permutations of the DSS has proceeded to file a case at the ECOWAS court.We must report, however, that there has been ahigh powered meeting going on between the Nigerian authorities and Nnamdi Kanu with iKanu rebuffing all cards placed on the table insisting that any entreaty that is not centered on Biafra restoration is dead on arrival.The British government in spite of their make-believe press statement are also concerned about the continued detention of Nnamdi Kanu, who despite having dual citizenship is still their citizen, as the British High Commissioner to Nigeria and his team visited him on Monday, details of their discussion which we are not permitted to report remains reassuring and gladdening. A delegation from the United States government will be meeting with him on Thursday. The pressure from a certain British MP is unsettlingthe British government and making her act in Nnamdi Kanu’s favour. When told about the plans by the Governor of Imo state, Chief Rochas Okorocha to convene a meeting of all interest groups over the protest, he got infuriated uncontrollably not minding the presence of the DSS operatives and pronounced death upon any Biafran that attends such meeting. He said that Governor Okoroawusa is a sworn enemy of the Biafran people and that Biafrans should not be equally yoked with him.He informed that the Nigerian state is panicking, that they had come to him repeatedly, urging him that they will allow him to speak to his group to stop whatever they were doing but he refused not knowing that it was because of the protest. He thus thunderedthat as the Commander in Chief of the Biafran Armed Forces that the protest should be intensified ten times over. He said he is unshaken and very confident of the leadership he left behind, that they will not disappoint him and the Biafra course. When he was informed about the casualty figure he was sober and pursued for a while, but vowed that for every blood of innocent Biafrans spilled that Nigeria will pay in ten folds. He paid tributes to those killed in Onitsha and Igweocha (Port Harcourt) and urged that those injured should be given all the care necessary. He also called for support for the protesting troops.Our team left him some hours ago, he was full of life and in high spirit.

Kanu ll be treated and tried like Henry Okah.....

It's a normal tradition for your local MP to write as much letter as he/she could write to ask about your well being when it's necessary. This is not new, MP usually write and assist illegal immigrants with letters to all necessary and relevant I migration authorities on behalf of people that live in their Boroughs.

Listen to his broadcasts and tweets, it is a call for violence... There is a video of him soliciting for guns and bullets to fight... Is that the way forward? Is that not calling for violence?.. Study the history of the Rwandan genocide and how radio messages eventually contributed to the carnage

Since the civil war, Igbos have occupied all major positions in Nigeria apart from presidency. Top ministerial positions, vice president, Military chiefs etc... In every part of Nigeria, Igbos run their businesses successfully. They intermarry and have children with other tribes.

Achieving the presidency means you have to form alliances with other regions.... With a good political strategy, it is possible.

I come from a relatively smaller tribe and we have not achieved as much as the igbos from the federal government in that regard.

That said, A biafra locked within Nigeria would be dependent on Nigeria.. It is like Lesotho locked in south Africa.. The same Nigeria, you call a zoo.. How do you want local cooperation when your stance is hostile?

Most likely we would take parts of the SS and even if they don't go with us, be rest assured that if the Igbos successfuly leave Nigeria the SS will follow immediately.

That aside, I think Buhari made a mistake arresting Kanu and keeping him in detention without trial.

Good one and I ask ,, why drink panadol for Biafran headache cos they don't want to be Nigerians anymore? or is it by fire we must force to be one? mind you nations are created by Almighty God not men and women... like Frederick Lugard and Flora, there're many land lock countries doing far better than Nigeria....

Nigerian security forces are akin to the Fulani herdsmen that gets their hard-on from spilling the blood of peaceful people. Nnamdi Kanu cried out loud in self defence after IPOB members were shot to death on several occasions. Yes, he and his followers have their right to self defence from those that are killing unarmed and peaceful men and women.

The call for self defence started right after the navy massacred peaceful prostesters sharing IPOB pamphlets at Onitsha.

To self defend is not being volent.

The right to self determination is enshrined in the UN charter. This is Irrespective of what the group gained or did not gain in their current political habitat.

You don't force or kill a people to be in a union with them. Such an idea belongs to the old world order. I have equally not heard Kanu demand that Igbo man become Nigeria's president...How did you come about that?

On the other hand, must your tribe engage in dick measuring with the Igbo visavis political gains and losses? Every ethnicity has the right to chart her own course!

An indepenent Biafra wouldn't be like Lesotho. Even though there would be sea access, she's got human capital and natural resources to keep her going.

That said, you have not answered my questions from the previous post.

Am ilaje and I support BIAFRA... though in a peaceful manner.
I have come to realise that most yorubas are really scared of secession but they won't admit it

Quote me anywhere
mankand:
Guts comes with glory. One thing I like about Nnamdi Kanu is that he is very articulate and organised.

He knows how to organise his people around his dream, he can be the next Che in Africa because he is fighting a just cause but due to the mainstream media propaganda, a lot of people won't see and agree to this.

He have been able to gather the support of the igbo people worldwide both indigenous, in diaspora and those whose ancestors were taken to slave in Europe, America and Latin America which have now become a force to recon with.

Unfortunately my people yorubas are still under the chain of mental slavery donating
their hard earned money to fake men called pastors instead of donating their money to organise themselves to build another oduduwa nation. We also have the same capacity to do the same as IPOB but we won't.

We also have yorubas all over Latin America, Europe, and other parts of the world.

I wish IPOB success in their quest because with their success, it becomes a motivation for other regions in Africa to do the same
tunjion:
The truth is we yorubas should stop opening thread to speak for south south minority.

Biafra from wat i read is not by force. Igbos in Edo such as the igbanke and Ika are Biafrans without doubt.

Other Edo ethnic group might even be rejected by Biafra. Some will end up applying to join.

Sentiment aside, they might feel Hausa and Yoruba will dominate them if they remain in Nigeria
ceaz4r:

The phobia you and your lots have for the Igbos have become so obvious is now a sour to the eyes. 
Whether your concern for the vaibility of the Biafran state when it comes is genuine or faulse, it doesn't scratch us one bit. In fact, we don't and won't notice. 
Stay in your enclave there and watch. 

* one advice for you, buy a carton of panadol extra and desolve the madicine in a basin of water to form syrup,  also buy a straw. When the pounding headache from thinking about Biafra gets too unbearable, you sip some of the syrup.  You will need it.

Nnamdi's call is not to self defence.. He has repeated violent rhetoric and it was not for self defence, numerous times.

If you have Biafra now, will the Igbo elite change?? The same people in politics will not change overnight..

Every politics is local, to effect change, you look within...
