Normally when you see them shouting 'No Election', and 'free Mazi Nnamdi Kanu', you did think they truly love Biafra and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
You won't know that they were being sponsored by the enemies of the struggle. People possessed by demons have become pastors shouting the name of God. Jesus Christ said, in the book of Matthew 24:5 "For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray." This is Christ warning his followers about fake people that will claim to be Christ. Did Mazi Nnamdi Kanu not say similar words before his rendition? He said many of you will be bought over.
People must understand that once you are doing well, people will want to tag along. And one can be used against you, by claiming to be for you. That's what most of them that joined the infiltrators did. They tagged along, got a little fame and they sold out.
If you say you are for Christ, you can't teach something against Christ. How can you claim to be for IPOB and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and be against his structure, and the people he entrusted with leadership? People he is still working with till today are people you are against, yet you claim to love him.
How can you want to free MNK and start giving orders when you are not a part of the leadership of IPOB? Why start using Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's pictures to declare 'NO ELECTION' when IPOB leadership has not spoken? What do you want to breed? Chaos right?
Let me tell you what is happening. The government knows that once one says 'no election', your emotions will be uncontrollable. You will immediately be fooled. That's why they are telling you what you want to hear.
For me, I am done with the Nigeria election. Nothing will make me ever vote in Nigeria. That's because I am fed up with Nigeria. But should I start ordering for no election knowing that IPOB has not done that? Also, do you know that there is a difference between No Election and Election Boycott? In 2019, IPOB moved for Election Boycott and not No Election. Do you know why? That's because IPOB knows that Election boycott is legal, while No Election is illegal. IPOB knows that you can't enforce an election boycott, but No Election is a call for violence and bloodshed. Once you start shouting No Election, you are opening a deadly door. The government can sponsor violence and it will be blamed on those shouting No Election. Do you now understand why IPOB is trying to remove itself from the projections of these infiltrators? IPOB is a nonviolent group and we must not forget that.
Those sharing No Election posters in Biafra land are setting Biafra land on fire. If they succeed in what they are doing then say goodbye to Biafra restoration, at least for many years to come.
Let me paint the picture for you. The 2023 election is personal for many Ndi Igbo, so no amount of threat will stop them from coming out. So it's going to be a blood bath. The infiltrators were paid to hit up the polity. By the time ndi Igbo defile their senseless order and threat, they will open fire on them just like they did during their stupid sit at home. This will bring International attention to South East. IPOB will be blamed and lots of people will lose interest in the struggle and distance themselves from it. Who will like to associate himself with such a senseless group? But I know they will fail. We are here to make sure they don't succeed.
Every Igbo must stand up against these elements being used by politicians with dubious interest against Biafrans. Do not allow them to use fake love for Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to transform you into becoming an enemy of this struggle. Not Every one shouting Free Mazi Nnamdi Kanu truly want his freedom. Only a fool will listen to people that have fought against everything instituted by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, yet claim to love him.
IPOB leadership remains the only people in contact with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu for the past year. Never allow anyone to fool you.
