Ipob Is Using Fear To Manipulate Ndigbo by MetaPhysical: 12:08am On May 16
Fear is a very strong tool that can change human behavior and blur our logic. It is a disease that eats away at reasoning and makes man insensitive. There are several reasons for this. One is that logic is slow; fear is fast. In situations of danger, real or imagined, we ought to be fast: First run or kill, then think. Historically, tribal demagogues have always weaponized fear and used it to manipulate and intimidate communities.

IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu clearly understand this. They have, thus, mastered the skill of using fear to circumvent logic across Igbo land. They have hijacked the higher-brain capacity for critical thinking and reason of many Igbos. IPOB’s onslaught of sub-rational manipulation using fear, dangerously wrapped with tribal sentiments has impaired the judgment we need as Igbos to navigate multicultural Nigeria.

In every media campaign of misinformation and outright lies, therefore, IPOB craftily works on triggering the emotions of Igbos. If they are not warning us that the Yorubas will betray us, they are raising a false alarm on the onslaught of Usman dan Fodio army from the north. The real danger of succumbing to IPOB’s fear mongering is that after a while, the immersion in our tribal loyalty makes the activities of every other tribe not just alien but close to incomprehensible.

Per Les Brown, fear does not have any special power unless you empower it by submitting to it. Unfortunately, for years, Igbos submitted to IPOB’s fear mongering ideology. Igbos allowed a bunch of lazy men in IPOB to operate as tribal leaders who arrogated to themselves the title of “Supreme Leader”. Hoodwinked, many Igbos stopped thinking. We pick signals from IPOB’s internet warriors. Slowly, we winnow our acquaintances to those who will reinforce our worldview. So, we all became vulnerable.

The intellectual elites in Igbo land, including Ohaneze Ndigbo rather than being a key rational bloc resisting this manipulation of the enigmatic Biafran Spirit, surrendered their minds to fear. They succumbed to the manipulation of tribalism by frauds in IPOB.

It is shameful that we allowed IPOB to use our tribal vulnerability to manipulate us. By irrationally “ordering” Ndigbo to “sit-at-home” as they wish, the lazy men behind IPOB have succeeded in using fear to block our logic. The same Igbos who will sheepishly “sit-at-home, will turn around and lament when the same mediocre in IPOB decrees that there will be no election in Igbo land.

IPOB understands that fear is a static that prevents us from hearing ourselves. Because fear is not a good teacher, the lessons of fear are quickly forgotten. So, even though IPOB failed woefully in the Anambra election boycott, they deployed the same strategy and told us to boycott the 2019 presidential elections.

We turned around and blamed Buhari for “setting him free.” We forgot that we had accused the same Buhari of killing Nnamdi Kanu a couple of months back. Then, like a confused chicken, Nnamdi Kanu quickly reversed gear and ordered us to vote for Atiku claiming that “terms have been met, signed, sealed and delivered”. Like zombies, some of us sheepishly hailed him. Shameful.

What should Igbos do to restore reason? How do we stop IPOB’s partisan tribalism from poisoning our politics and derailing our unhindered progress in Nigeria?
The first thing we must do is; stop beating a drum with an axe like IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu.

IPOB’s political strategy based on fear should be seen by all Igbos as a lengthened shadow of ignorance that has consistently presented illusions as realities. It leads to anger. The anger, in turn, leads to hate; with hate in our hearts, we make a political miscalculation. Then we fear political retribution and the vicious cycle goes on.

As Igbos, we should convince ourselves that there is something out there in Nigeria that is more important than fear. The fear of living together with dozens of other ethnic groups in Nigeria will not go away. The fear of being cheated by other tribes in the Nigerian political and economic realms will not go away.

However, as warriors, Igbos should embrace the code of necessity, which dictates that the battle must be fought anew every day and bridges built across the Nigerian political landscape.

To succeed, we should start living our dreams and stop leaving the fear used by IPOB to envelop our reasoning. For example, Igbos who approached the Lagos State governorship election under the atmosphere of fear and the misleading assumption that Tinubu and APC will swallow them failed. On the other hand, Igbos, motivated by the need to form an alliance with a candidate that openly sought their support, succeeded.

Finally, a child who is afraid of the dark could be forgiven, but, when a man becomes afraid of light, then, there is a real tragedy of life. Fear, as packaged and delivered by IPOP on our collective ethnic sensitivity, is a deadly thing. It is sinister that has warped our judgment and frozen our reflexes. Worse, it's contagious.

To keep excelling, Ndigbo must move against IPOB’s imposition of fear on all of us with the weapons of faith and love. With love, our best efforts at economic, social, political and educational endeavors across the Nigerian landscape will be rewarded with a bountiful harvest.

Ndigbo should not succumb to the politics of fear by the Unclad men in IPOB who are offering us clothes. To gain strength, courage, and confidence, we must do the things which IPOB out of fear has made us believe we cannot do.

Together, we can.

Repeat this post in public after your masters deny the Igbos the presidency in 2023, 2027, 2031 and watch yourself being lynched by a mob of angry Igbos.


The best way to kill IPOB is to give Igbos their desire which are:

1) True Federalism/Restructuring/Weak Center.
2) Igbo Presidency/International Seaports & Airports.

Anything outside these things, means you are not serious.

No sir.
What Nnamdi Kanu has done is to educate the people and call out the ills which the well to do Igbos are too busy to be bothered about and the hussling ones have given up on worrying about.

A slave master will take ALL your possession and give you crumbs, giving the impression that he cares about your welfare; their major FEAR is for you to not know the truth. Their strength is in your ignorance so they will ensure you remain that way.

Any attempt to enlighten the masses slaves will be fought with every resource at their disposal.

Go back to previous lectures and broadcasts by Nnamdi Kanu and see if they are mere coincidence. I'm assuming you will be true to yourself.

As for that 1mbecile whose moniker bears the name of the most clueless president in history, I just want to give a shout out and let you know the level of your stup1dity is contributing to global warming.

Boko haram, herdsmen and other armed bandits are killing people all over the place on a daily basis, but churchill Okonkwo thinks it is unarmed IPOB that is causing fear


The marginalisation of Ndigbo is clear for all to see in terms of appointments, federal projects and military harassment, but Churchill Okonkwo thinks the problem is IPOB

IPOB wants a sit at home for the people to remember the millions of souls they lost in war but Churchill Okonkwo thinks it is "irrational" for one to remember their dead


Churchill Okonkwo is talking about wrongfully accusing Buharib of killing Kanu, forgetting that a platoon of heavily armed Soldiers invaded Kanu's house to open fire, in a democracy! He will never talk about this sacrilegious act, what he is bothered about is that Kanu managed to escape with his life and Buhari was wrongfully accused.

Churchill Okonkwo is saying that IPOB is putting fear inside Igbos to live with other ethnic groups in Nigeria but he forgets that in Nigeria, only Igbos live with other ethnic groups in large numbers. Igbos are the second largest ethnic group in every state after the indigenous population. Only Igbos actually practice "one Nigeria" for it is only Igbos who go to other parts of Nigeria to develop that place

In a Nigeria that does not work as a nation, in a Nigeria that has long failed, in a Nigeria where equity does not exist, in a Nigeria where Igbos have been routinely massacred since 1945, in a Nigeria that Islamic fundamentalism is growing every day in the shape of ISIS West Africa and Boko Haram.....





Churchill Okonkwo has managed to convince himself that unarmed IPOB is what Ndigbo should be really worried about?

Common sense is not common

Churchill Okonkwo is talking about wrongfully accusing Buharib of killing Kanu, forgetting that a platoon of heavily armed Soldiers invaded Kanu's house to open fire, in a democracy! He will never talk about this sacrilegious act, what he is bothered about is that Kanu managed to escape with his life and Buhari was wrongfully accused.

Churchill Okonkwo is saying that IPOB is putting fear inside Igbos to live with other ethnic groups in Nigeria but he forgets that in Nigeria, only Igbos live with other ethnic groups in large numbers. Igbos are the second largest ethnic group in every state after the indigenous population. Only Igbos actually practice "one Nigeria" for it is only Igbos who go to other parts of Nigeria to develop that place

In a Nigeria that does not work as a nation, in a Nigeria that has long failed, in a Nigeria where equity does not exist, in a Nigeria where Igbos have been routinely massacred since 1945, in a Nigeria that Islamic fundamentalism is growing every day in the shape of ISIS West Africa and Boko Haram.....





Churchill Okonkwo has managed to convince himself that unarmed IPOB is what Ndigbo should be really worried about?

Common sense is not common



Churchill Okonkwo is an educated illiterate.

Metaphysical, tell Churchill Okonkwo to repeat his words again when Igbos are denied the seat of the president in 2023, 2027 and 2031 and watch how tyre, matchstick and fuel will be used to lynch him.

Repeat this post in public after your masters deny the Igbos the presidency in 2023, 2027, 2031 and watch yourself being lynched by a mob of angry Igbos.


The best way to kill IPOB is to give Igbos their desire which are:

1) True Federalism/Restructuring/Weak Center.
2) Igbo Presidency/International Seaports & Airports.

Anything outside these things, means you are not serious.

You are wrong. Igbo is Biafra and Biafra is Igbo. No matter you give the Igbo man, he is a Biafran

There is nothing like Ipob. It's just a name. The people who bear those names are Biafrans. Ipob can be disband today but Biafra will not.

Ipob is a cell in Biafra. Biafra is the organism. Before any cell dies, another automatically evolve.

It didn't start with Ipob and it will not end with it.

Very much. FG is the one restraining ipob, otherwise every Ibo man, woman and child woupd by now be conscripted, willingly or unwillingly, and carry an ipob ID. Mainstream Ibo fear ipob.

The idiot mosque hill remains one of buhari ass lickers who is in his payroll, he wrote again to show his pay master that his working.

Were waiting for the idiot to go house to house on may 30th to drag people out of their homes and send their wards to school then we will know his serious.

They told you that May 29th is democracy day, June 12 democracy you agree but your own day is a taboo, 30th may which is used for remembrance of millions of souls that died they don't want it because its Igbo or Biafra thing.

Amadioha will fire that mosquehill let him go out to the streets of Biafra a talk this rubbish and know if he will be alive to tell his pay master what he see.

Biafrans are wiser than the idiotic write.
