It is very unfortunate that the Nigeria government has refused to appreciate the fact that Biafrans are always calm and peaceful in whatever predicament we find ourselves despite the incessant frustrations, marginalisation and killings.
I and Mazi Kenneth Ogani, the IPOB Abuja coordinator arrived at Kuje prisons at exactly 10:07am on May 10, 2017, to pay homage to our beloved brothers and co-defendants to IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu who are still being detained. However, funny enough, the Kuje prison officers asked us about our letters, which left us totally confused. We asked them what the letters have to do with our visit, and they replied and said that our questions simply means; we have not been at the prisons for a very long period of time, as the order has been cemented for only Benjamin, David and Chidiebere for sometimes now.
We went further to ask them whether the said order is also made for all the inmates or for only the Biafra activists; they vividly replied: "Other inmates have nothing to do with that, we are only notified of Benjamin, David and Chidiebere and that order has not yet changed."
After some series of interrogation with them, the man who is an Igbo speaking Biafran in position of the form said: "My brother forgets about Nigeria ooo! this Nigeria is terribly out of law."
As we waited, one of the defense counsels to the detained activists, Barr. Adoga arrived Kuje prison,we greeted and he told us that there is no way the prison authorities will permit our entering.
He also revealed that the reason why he came is because of the worrisome restrictions pertaining to his client's freedom of homage. He further show us some documents which he intends to present to the prison authorities, seeking for the absolute transfer of all the activists to either Enugu, Portharcourt or any of the prisons in Biafraland.
The need for the transfer according to Barr. Adoga is that,they are being treated as a non-indigenes which they truly are, and restricting their fundamental rights which may led to their death if care is not taken.
There is need for Biafrans and friends of Biafrans to raise alarm to the public,international communities and right groups to take immediate action before things gets out of hand, because I can see the danger of possible assassination of these activists secretly by every possible means. We can never fold our arms while the zoo stampede on our rights, and kill our gallant warriors with impunity. The worldwide must note this anarchy, injustice melted on Biafrans.
Enough is enough!

Biafra: The Health Conditions of Benjamin Mmadubugwu and Others Worsens In Kuje Prisons

Just this morning, the 11th of May 2017, a reliable source from Kuje prison Abuja called the desk of Family Writers Press in a very worrisome manner. The caller who chose to remain anonymous , reported that the lives of Biafran activists, who have been detained unlawfully for years now alongside Mazi Nnamdi Kanu are in great danger, especially Mazi Benjamin Mmadubugwu.
"Are you the brother of one Mr. Benjamin Mmadubugwu, Nnamdi Kanu's co defendant?" the caller asked curiously.
When I answered positively, he started by easing his breath:
"hmmm!,I'm sorry but I have to tell you the truth, the way I'm seeing things going on now that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not with them,I'm afraid you guys may end up losing all of them. More especially, the life of Mr. Benjamin Mmadubugwu who depends on inhalers in order to sustain his life presently".
When I asked him why Mazi Benjamin had to depend on inhalers in order to sustain his life, he answered:
"Stop asking like you don't know, Benjamin has been infected of Asthma even right from his incarceration at DSS custody of which the result was also known to him. But as for the last few days,the asthma is turning to something else,and I'm very sorry to say that if you people continue keeping mute,waiting for the prison management, you guys may end up losing him at last. Even that one called David, in fact, none of them is save".
Remember that in August 2016, the Kuje prison management tear-gassed Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and co defendants in an attempt to get them assassinated. And ever since , Mazi Benjamin Mmadubugwu who has been confirmed as asthmatic, has not taken proper medical care.
Also, few days ago, Mazi Benjamin's food was poisoned. And there are speculations that the Hausa/Fulani prison management over there vowed to kill him. The reason being that, "he carries BIAFRA on his head more than any of the four ", according to them.
Therefore, we are calling on the International Community, Human Right groups, lovers of freedom and democracy to intervene on this worrisome condition. For the fact that they are asking for Biafra does not mean they should be killed. They are not criminals.
Nigeria must released them and every other incarcerated Biafran unconditionally without tempering with their lives. Any attempt to poison any of them through whatever means will spell doom for Nigeria.
#FreeBenjaminMmadubugwu and others now!.
