New Biafra Leader Gives Ultimatum to Kanu, Ekpa to Stop Sit at Home

By Jude Atupulazi

Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, and the leader of Biafra Auto Pilot Group, Simon Ekpa, have been given a seven-day ultimatum to stop all forms of sit-at-home or face dire consequences.

This ultimatum was issued by the leader of a new group,Dominant Force for Biafra (DFB), Jesus Field Marshall, King, Prophet, Dr. Robinson Ike. He leads a new self-determination group agitating for the South Eastern Nigeria to become a sovereign state.

The pro-Biafra agitator who lamented what he described as the untold hardship, deprivation and frustration the Igbos living in the South East were undergoing by being coerced to abandon their means of livelihood in the name of Sit-at-home, gave the ultimatum as he was declaring the birth of a New Biafra via his Facebook handle.

Ike who claimed he was divinely anointed both by the late Biafran General, Odumegwu Ojukwu, and by heaven, to be the king of Igbos, urged Nigerians and Igbos to allow him as a spiritualist and Field Marshall to lead the New Biafra Republic and liberate the Igbos.

He said nobody loved Nnamdi Kanu more than him, revealing that the temporary New Biafra capital would be located in Onitsha.

He said, ‘This lockdown is now a big embarrassment. I do not like what is happening. They declare lockdown sometimes 3 days, 4days or 5days. Nigerians, Hausas, Fulanis, Yorubas are not feeling the pains but we in the South East.

‘Sometimes you hear of shootings, stray bullets from either the militants or Nigerian soldiers killing our people. Even if these enforcers kill Nigerian soldiers,they regroup and come back to arrest, main and detain Igbo civilians.

‘We don’t know the whereabouts of many innocent Igbos arrested because by the time the soldiers come back, the enforcers have escaped.

‘We say no to this! Nnamdi Kanu, Simon Ekpa, in the name of Jesus Christ, seven days from today, 10th July,2023, withdraw the sit-at-home order and put these boys down with their guns. Else, after these seven days ultimatum, they will be flushed out of Nigeria.

‘The IPOB or whosoever that is supporting sit-at-home is restricting our people from going about their genuine, normal businesses. Let all Igbos come out and join me who is capable to manage Biafra’s affairs, both spiritually and physically.’

He added, ‘I am announcing today the Federal Republic of Biafra. Onitsha will be the temporary administrative headquarters of the New Biafra Nation. Prior to this time, I told everyone in Nigeria and outside Nigeria that today being 10th July, 2023, I would announce the Federal Republic of Biafra and that is exactly what I am doing.

‘Biafra as a nation of her own is born again today! Biafra as a nation is born to live and stay today! My message to Nigerians as a whole is to allow Biafra in my hand to start because there is no going back, no failure. This is the appointed time for Igbos and nobody can stop us because greater are they with us than those against us,’ said Robinson Ike.

He said he did not initiate the idea by himself but that it was ordained by God and that he had told Nigerians and the agitators that nobody loved Kanu more than he, Ike, but that he had tried.

‘Nnamdi Kanu and Simon Ekpa should allow me to take over the leadership of Biafra as a Field Marshall. I want Igbos and South East to be free and free indeed,’ the self-styled prophet said.
