BIAFRA: US Probe Report Declares Northern Nigeria Unsafe for Igbos & Christians by kp3tech(m): 1:30pm On Aug 26, 2017
WASHINGTON, Aug. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Statement of law firm Fein & DelValle PLLC:

The law firm of Fein & DelValle PLLC travelled to Enugu, Nigeria—the heart of Igboland—from August 19-August 24, 2017. Our visit was to meet with our plaintiffs-clients, to gather facts and to conduct research to advance the Torture Victims Protection Act (TVPA) lawsuit we have filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of ten (10) anonymous plaintiffs against sixteen (16) individual defendants for extrajudicial killings and torture perpetrated under color of Nigerian law motived by the Igbo ethnicity, Christian faith, and political viewpoints of the victims. The case is styled John Doe, et al v. Tukur Yusuf Buratai, et al, Civil Action No. 1:17-cv-0133.

Plaintiffs are seeking compensatory and punitive damages to secure justice for the Igbo people, to give them hope for the future, and to deter genocide, ethnic cleansing or the extermination of Christians in Nigeria by radical Islamic Hausa-Fulani terrorists in Northern Nigeria. We are convinced that Nigeria is the most dangerous country in the world for Christians. They routinely defile the sanctity of churches by killing children hiding their tiny bodies in pews. In violation of Nigeria's professed secular constitution, Nigeria has joined the Organization of Islamic Countries and twelve northern states have adopted sharia law. The Christian Open Door Report of 2015 found that Boko Haram, the northeast Islamic terrorist organization, had killed 11,000 Christians, destroyed 13,000 churches and 1,500 Christian schools, had created 2.6 million internally displaced persons, and forced 1.3 million Christians to flee.

On July 11, 2017 by the Fulani Youth Consultative Forum (ACYF) issued an odious, chilling and genocidal threat to plunder the properties and evict by force and violence eleven (11) million Igbos peacefully residing in Northern Nigeria if they do not vacate the region by October 1, 2017. The Government of Nigeria and nineteen northern States have tacitly endorsed the ACYF threatened genocide of twice the number who was exterminated by the Nazis in the Holocaust!
The federal and state governments in northern Nigeria have refused to arrest even a single ACYF member. But today, the ACYF threat was withdrawn—perhaps because frightened by the prospect of TVPA suits against their members. Whether the withdrawal was bogus or genuine remains to be seen.


In our Buratai suit, the District Court issued an order granting the plaintiffs' motion to proceed anonymously because they reasonably feared lethal retaliation against themselves or families if their identities were known.

The actions of the defendants were crimes against humanity that can be prosecuted in any jurisdiction in the world. Indeed, the Convention Against Torture mandates that signatory nations like the United States and Nigeria prosecute the crimes of torture or extrajudicial killings.

Fourteen of the individual defendants are federal officials and two are state governors in the Southeast. One of the two, Governors, Willie Obiano of Anambra State, has already apologized for the brutal killings of plaintiffs that he admits were perpetrated under his aegis. The other defendant Governor is Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State.

The defendants have yet to answer. Several are in default for failure to respond within 21 days of the service of the summons and Complaint. W[b]e are optimistic about our chances of victory at trial or earlier.[/b] Defendants are represented by a small Nigerian law firm in California thousands of miles from the venue of the litigation in the District of Columbia. They represent they have been contacted by the Government of Nigeria, not by the individual defendants.

We salute the courage of our ten anonymous plaintiffs and their brave supporters throughout Igboland. We are unified in our insistence on obtaining justice for the Igbo people through peaceful and lawful means that disavow the lawless savagery of their persecutors. They should tremble when they reflect that God is just, and that his justice will not sleep forever.

If it becomes, ipob has another evidence to present.
They still have a case in ICC pending in case your government forgot.
ICC is waiting for Buhari, Brutai or whatever the idiot calls himself and Osibanjo (sadly for Osibanjo he's going to be guilty by association although he didn't do sh1t).

Like,I always said technology advancement was the best thing that haopened for Biafrans. Video camera and video cell phone was God blessing biafra. The internet and access to several history books was the icing on top of the blessing.
Thank you jehovah for technology.

england is developed, because, she was built on
the same ideology, culture and same believe
likewise USA. Nigeria can't move forward,
because, we don't share the same
ideology,culture and religion. Hausa man only
believe what his king tells him. Hausa man when
in position will exhibits some nepotistic attitude,
always try to help people from his region and
who share the same value with him and will
never help you base on merit like wise the other
regions. if we can't place the right people at the
right place base on merit, how then will this
country move forward? this has being within us
and its part of us, it can never go away, this
country can never change. the only solution is
disintegration. every body need to go their ways.
2015 election proved it. a country of over 160
millions people, who claimed to be the most
educated black men in Africa electing an
illiterate to rule them, not because he was
qualified, but because he is from a particular
region who shared the same value.
USA is moving forward today because they
shared the same value, like wise Germany,
turkey, england, France. their final decision do
not come from their leaders, but they decide for
their self.

USA don't believe in any emir or sultan, they are not tribalistic. there hiring doesn't base on nepotism. They didn't voted for Trump or Hillary because they are from one particular region unlike Nigeria. they don't display tribalism in choosing one who is fit for an office. Yoruba's voted for osinbajo, not because he was fit but because of tribalism, Hausa and fulani voted for buhari, not because he was fit but because of tribalism, the Igbo and the ss voted for gej because of tribalism. this tribalistic behaviour has been in our blood since from 1908, it is in our DNA and it can t go away. if we are one, there wouldn't have been any need of sending army who from the ss and se to the north and west and west and not to the south, why this because they feel like if the ss serve there they will pardon their brothers, but if we send northerners, won't b any pardon, they will kill them as we command. in recruiting, the same tribalism is also display,an Hausa man will give his brother all the top positions because he is from the north and they shared the same believe. have you ever heard that america zone their president to a particular region and Senate president and vice president to one region? have you ever heard anything like america northern forum? we can't move along, there is no unity and even the person preaching about unity today, is the most tribalistic human in Nigeria. the only solution is to divide.

USA already refuse to sell you more weapons due to your military act towards civilians. That decision was made because of the IDP bombing. and your government since have been trying to prove the act was a mistake in effort to rebuild trust with US government.

Take it from someone that lives in America. With this new development, when Biafra wins...kiss getting any military assistance from US goodbye especially considering this also gives the case the Shiites has against your government pending more leverage. That would be another double wham oo.

Once US shuns you, being that it is a powerhouse, other western nation would follow through. They equally can threaten neighboring countries to do so as well. The only people you will have left to aid you would be other African nations, whom have limited weapons themselves so doubt they'll share. Middle East countries, though they despise america and most likely would like to stick it in US face each way they can find, but they are currently fighting so doubt they will share. Asian countries, who may sell to you but that's after they check the odds against you. Considering USA is a better ally than you, you have a disadvantage. Last option for una is private companies. You'll lose 10x more money due to the prices,would be higher. On top of that the US monitors weapons dealing private companies more than any nation so knowing how petty and power hungry is especially since Trump took over, they put sanction on any private company that deal with una for just having audacity to against them.

You truly do not know how petty USA government is. Once you are in their sh1t list, they'll do anything possible to make your life a living hell . Take it from someone that lives here and witness it happen multiple times including their own citizens.

Anyway OP love the new development.
