It is now in the public domain that Christ the King Church (CKC) in Aba, Abia State called on Nigeria Government and her security agencies to begin a clampdown on any individual suspected to be member of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB). Its a pity that CKC Aba a place where our people worship and pray to Most High God (Chukwu Okike Abiama) would turn the house of God to a place where Nigerian politicians come and do campaign for their selfish interest. It is sad that priests that are meant to be at the forefront of the emancipation of the masses are in our land encouraging our oppressors to continue killing us. The same politicians that have connived to suffer our people are the people that priests are campaigning for to be elected for another four years of impunity.
It is important we advise our people that attend churches where politicians are allowed to do their campaign, to be very careful. It is baffling that clergymen and women have allowed politicians to play their dirty politics in the house of God. The house of God is a sanctuary and must remain so, not a den for criminal politicians. Therefore, we are urging the clergymen and women to reflect on why Christ died on the Cross of Calvary.
Christ never allowed politicians, rich men or businessmen to do trade in the Temple. Those in charge of CKC Aba should learn this important lesson in the scriptures. We are calling on all priests and pastors in Biafraland to refrain from all forms of politicking. IPOB are fighting for our dignity, respect and freedom.
The one and only IPOB family ably led by our supreme leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu does not tolerate or condone any form of crime and
cannot be provoked into violence by anybody whosoever. We respect our priests, men and women of God who respect themselves and cannot be cowed by any sponsored propaganda or blackmail from any quarter no matter highly placed they are. IPOB is a disciplined organization championing the liberation and independence state of Biafra and nothing more.
We must not forget to advise whosoever that is picking up fight with IPOB is bound to fail because IPOB is divine movement ordained by Chukwu Okike Abiama (God Almighty) which no one can stop. The impression being given by CKC Aba is that they are in support of killing of innocent citizens in the name of working for Nigeria politicians.
We are aware that some clergymen and women cannot do without involving themselves with dirty politics in Nigeria but must do it with decorum and respect for other people’s wish or they will have themselves to blame. IPOB sounded it loud and clear to all and sundry that they will not be part or participate in 2019 presidential election not because of churches. If the clergymen and women including pastors are praying for the success of 2019 presidential election they are hallucinating because elections cannot solve Nigeria problems and understand that there are people who are calling for election boycott which IPOB is one among them. The church must put this into consideration so as not to fall into the hands of the enemies of the masses and displease the real owners of the land.
COMRADE EMMA POWERFUL MEDIA AND PUBLICITY SECRETARY FOR IPOB.
A Clarion Call To All IPOB Family Members
By Deputy Director of IPOB,
Mazi Alphonsus Uche Okafor-Mefor.
A CLARION CALL TO ALL IPOB FAMILY MEMBERS
You have vented and made your anger known. The sporadic attacks on the CKC Church must now stop. Allow IPOB leadership to deal with this matter.
MESSAGE TO THE CHURCH
I am a Catholic but I must say these: The Church in Biafraland (South East/South South for ease of understanding) is/are the people (IPOB) and IPOB are/is the Church. 90% of your congregation is IPOB. That is the sacred truth.They own the land and they own the church. The Church leadership erred by supporting the position of the Nigerian murderous establishment in killing and tagging IPOB terrrorists (yet these terrorists are people supporting the church) and you by so doing underestimating the potency and voices of these people (Voice of the people remains the Voice of God). The Church leadership further erred by asking these same oppressed people tagged as terrorists by the Nigerian state added by the governor politicians in Biafranland to pray for peaceful election (where you know that the election is fraud on its own without rectifying the system first and going by what you and know) and for the progress of their muderers, the Nigerian establishment.These are the unjustly isolated sizeable mangled, manacled and bungled portion of the population.Before now , the Church leadership had allowed the "pulpits" to be desecrated by inviting these criminal politcians and rightly so, those with blood in their hands to be honored and be praised in the "House of God " and these have been going on for decades. You must appreciate that these people(IPOB), your congregation have sensibilities which you have repeatedly offended while hiding under the "sanctity, sacredness and inviolability of the place of worship". The protest you witnessed was out of disaffection felt by the majority of the IPOB who are members of the Church you have turned into a political platform. You subsequently erred by coming up this press release in which you called IPOB unprintable names and called on the army and other security agencies to clamp down on them. The Church leadership is hereby advised that this unpopular and compromised political position taken is in bad taste and will not do anybody any good. Ultimately, the reality and the gospel truth is that you are by implication calling for a revolution that will not only damage but consume the church as no amount of combined forces of horror and darkness invited by the church can stop IPOB. The Church must retrace her steps from entering into this uncharted territorial mucky waters. The Church is hereby ultimately counseled to fish out the bad eggs amount the clergy and isolate. I see an unquenchable generational crisises of immense proportions and of the scale that will put the Christendom in tatters if this cash and carry "politicisation" of the Gospel is not terminated forthwith. Concentrate on preaching the word of God and not politics. Biafra Restoration is sacrosanct, it is irrevocable, you are incapable of reversing it , it remains unassailable and you cannot stop nor defeat IPOB. Withdraw this senseless press statement and engage. Pick your quarrels and fights carefully and rationally!
Indegenous People of Biafra
