Who is they? Even the first Republic of Biafra comprised most of what you are calling "SS".
Restructuring is not in constitution, it does not mean that many people are not agitating for it.
Referendum may not be in the constitution, it does not mean that IPOB cannot agitate for it.
|Politics / Re: What I Think Nnamdi Kanu Led IPOB Should Have Done by attackgat: 10:52pm On Oct 01, 2017|
One problem Yorubas have is they feel that Igbos must reason like, and emulate them.
I dont think that Yorubas realise that Igbo/Hausa/Yoruba are very different people who are only united by the accident of colonialism.
Nnamdi Kanu commanded mammoth crowds but it would have been useless for him to use his followership to seek political power, infact, doing that would have meant the end of IPOB
Nigeria is not structured in a way that helps someone like Kanu to achieve his aim of Biafra through a political process.
People in power do not want Nigeria to break up and even if IPOB managed to get piliticians who are sympathic into office, those people would just make noise about Biafra for a while before the trappings of office will make them forget about IPOB.

You answered your iwn question with the above. A mere pressure group can make any demands it wants on government. It is not new, other pressure groups such the NLC and NANS have done so in the past.
What is important is if the pressure group is making the demand legally and without "organised violence"
Take IPOB for example, it wants a referendum conducted in the SE/SS geopolitical zone. Chapter 4 of the constitution allows everyone freedom of association, movement, expression and belief. IPOB is allowed to demand referendum, agitate, protest and even believe in Biafra or the break up of Nigeria as long as the do not use violence to achieve their aim. They do not have to be a political force.
The question is, has IPOB used violence in its agitation to achieve Biafra ir a referendum for Biafra? No they have not. Clashes between civilians and Police/Army is a regular thing that occurs all over the world. Even the Police and Army have been known to clash from time to time. But having the occassional clash here and there is not enough to label any group as terrorists.
Having clash does not make an organisation violent, what makes an organisation violent is if they use violence to achieve their aim even when there is no clash.
IPOB, has not used violence for its aims, they dont carry arms and they have not killed or touched anyone.
They are entitled to make any demands they want, nobody said that the government must grant their demands, but they have the right to make demands.

Only free people develop themselves and their economic potential.
Igbos cannot develop themselves when it is Abuja that decides everything.
Self development comes with freedom and sovereingty. When Igbo land is free from Nigeria, it will develop its self

Stop talking nonsense, you Buhari. Talking about war when self determination groups are talking about referendum.
The UK uded referendum in 2014 for Scotland. The same UK used referendum last year to leave the EU.

Well there was nothing like 'Anambra state' when this picture was taken.
Remarkably, both men went to the same secondary in 20's, Hope wadell training institute, the only secondary school in the Eastern region at the time.
Zik went on to further his education and later returned to Nigeria to become a political heavyweight while Sir Louis Ojukwu went into business and became one of the richest men in Africa
|Politics / Re: Ipob:- Kanu Calls For Negotiations With Fg by attackgat: 3:44pm On Oct 01, 2017|
They have twisted "not averse to a political solution in resolving his present politically orchestrated ordeal" to mean "calling for negotiation"

Naturally, if Nigeria had been a civilised country, there would be a judicial enquirey when there is allegation of unlawful killings leveled against the military.
But Nigeria is far from a civilised country

|Politics / Re: How Nigerian Army Made Biafran Independence A Success by attackgat: 10:05pm On Sep 30, 2017|
Opration Python dance 2, its illegality, the invasion of Kanus home and the Nigerian Army insisting they have have never been around Kanu's house, the Nigerian government declaring IPOB a terrorist organisation and having no country support them in that action, the laughable bias that Fulani herdsmen who kill people everyday are just criminals but but IPOB who never killed anyone are terrorists.
Buhari's government is just a joke
|Politics / Re: Lawyers From African Continent Storm US Embassy Over IPOB (video) by attackgat: 9:12pm On Sep 30, 2017|
What a disgraceful video. Protesting that USA was wrong to say that IPOB is not a terrorist organisation but the only reason they could come up with to say IPOB is a terrorist organisation is that they made threats?
Who doesnt make threats?
These guys are laughable, the guy reading the speech couldnt even read his own speech well
|Politics / Re: Obituary Of IPOB Member Killed In Abia During Army Invasion (Graphic Photos) by attackgat: 1:26pm On Sep 30, 2017|
The video of the Nigerian Army surrounding Kanu's house is on youtube. The video of heavy gunfire at Kanus gate is on youtube. The video of the aftermath of the raid is on youtube.
Plus, the Army declared victory over IPOB. So what do you the Army surrounded Kanu's house for? To offer him protection?

|Politics / Re: Obituary Of IPOB Member Killed In Abia During Army Invasion (Graphic Photos) by attackgat: 12:15pm On Sep 30, 2017|
There are places to joke and where not to joke. The Nigerian Army does not shoot people over the issue of Biafra alone, they shoot people for different sorts of reasons. It could easily be you on the floor dead tomorow over an issue that has nothing to do with IPOB or Biafra or simply because someone doesnt like your face.
So if you are not yet mature enough to speak against military violence, make way let those who can do so.

God is listening to the cry of his people being murdered by the terrorists in uniform called the Nigerian Army simply for agitating for their freedom.

Declaring IPOB was just selective justice and everybody can see the hypocrisy, even US and UK.
Buhari has no problems proscribing IPOB that has never killed anyone but cannot do the same to his herdsmen brothers that are killing people all over the place.

People pray, so does Nnamdi Kanu. The man often prayed before starting his broadcats
In the pictures, Nnamdi Kanu was praying which is why people bowed and knelt down.
The guy who kissed Nnamdi Kanu's shoes maybe Yoruba
|Politics / Re: John Nnia Nwodo Bows To Obi Of Onitsha As He Arrives Chatham House (Photos) by attackgat: 10:25pm On Sep 29, 2017|
You are posting these pictures but you cant even look and see that Nnamdi Kanu is praying in all of them which is why people are kneeling or bowing aside from the the guy who kissed Kanu's shoes.
