The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, lPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu Saturday said that the freedom which IPOB is championing is not just that of political emancipation or territorial autonomy, but the truest form of freedom.
In a statement, he entitled “We are the light of God” which made available to newsmen by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, Mazi Kanu said they want to achieve freedom from all human bondage, be it mental, political, economical, social, religious and educational freedom.
He said IPOB will also achieve freedom in the core areas where people have been held hostage by unseen dark forces, both foreign and local, intent on destroying and subjugating human race to eternal slavery devoid of honour, dignity, and hope.
“What we in IPOB have been ordained to champion in this era of organised deception, is not just that of political emancipation or territorial autonomy, rather it’s the truest form of freedom.
“Freedom from all forms of human bondage, be it mental, political, economical, social, religious and educational, especially in these core areas where our people have been held hostage by unseen dark forces, both foreign and local, intent on destroying and subjugating our race to eternal slavery devoid of honour, dignity, and hope.
“I will continue to focus my lectures on these crucial areas, given that it has come to our understanding that the root of all the problems associated with the shameful plight of black people in the world today stems from our subconscious ignorance of the facts of life which has been cleverly wrapped in a unique brand of religious idiocy by our conquerors.
“Until we attain a heightened state of consciousness through the efforts those of us in IPOB are making, anyone going about making the truth we preach to be about supposed lack of religious freedom in a new Biafra is truly daft and making a complete fool of him or herself.
“Freedom is freedom and it means freedom from all forms that negatively impact the lives of black people and Biafrans in particular, including religious hypocrisy and blatant misrepresentation and misapplication of Biblical doctrines.
‘Other African indigenous nations may choose to keep quiet or be as dumb as they like if they so wish, but not we Biafrans. As the instructive ancient Igbo adage constantly reminds us, “Arusi kpaa ike egosi ya osisi eji kpuo ya”.
The Ancients never regarded religion as a taboo subject never to be broached, because in their wisdom they realised that true knowledge can only come through the interrogation of every belief system regardless of how sacrilegious that may seem.
“Our ancestors believed and rightly so that truth if at all it is the truth, should not be afraid of scrutiny. If something is true, why should it be shielded or afraid of honest interrogation?
“Africa is drowning, blacks all over the world are under siege, but we continually refuse to reason as human beings should. Biafra, as I never get tired of saying will not be like any other superstitiously useless, religion enslaved African country. We are the Light of God I don’t need a thieving Daddy G.O, an idol worshipper, or lunatics of an alien religion to tell me that.”
