Operation Python Dance, forceful military occupation of Igbo land -ADF

*Vows to challenge action in court

From Chidi Nnadi, Enugu

Frontline Igbo group, Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF), has described the Operation Python Dance II a.k.a Exercise Egwu Eke declared on Friday by the Chief of Training and Operations, Army, Major-General DD Ahmadu, as “military invasion and occupation of Alaigbo, nay, declaration of war against peaceful citizens of Alaigbo”

ADF in a statement signed by its President, Prof. Uzodinma Nwala; Secretary, Prof Nath Aniekwu; and Chairman, Board of Trustees, Dr. Dozie Ikedife, and made available to Sunday Sun Sunday, said that the army declaration was another show of force and attempt to demonstrate to the world that Igbo land and the rest of the country were indeed a conquered territory.

“This is indeed an invasion of Alaigbo by the Arewa-controlled and dominated Nigerian military which recently witnessed unimaginable retirement of a great number of Igbo high-ranking officers. This is a Nigeria in which the South East is completely excluded from membership of Nigeria’s highest Security Council, in clear violation of the federal character principle as enshrined in the subsisting Federal Constitution.

“This occupation of a peaceful law-abiding Igbo nation is unconstitutional by the extant Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“This is another level of insurgency and terrorism to complement the insurgent Fulani herdsmen who have been terrorizing, taking over and destroying our farmlands, sacking our ancestral homes, killing our men and women, raping our women and daughters, insulting and attacking our Christian faith; all these are done with the connivance of the security authorities of Nigeria,” the group lamented.

The group reminded the army that the duty of the military is to protect the country from external aggression, pointing out that the maintenance of internal security falls on the jurisdiction of the Nigerian Police and not the army.

The group noted that the president’s powers to deploy officers of the Nigerian Armed Forces are provided for in Sections 217 and 218 of the Constitution.

“The circumstances and conditions under which the Nigerian Armed Forces can be deployed are as follows: for the defense of Nigeria from external aggression, for the maintenance of the territorial integrity of and securing the borders of Nigeria from violation on land, sea and air, for suppressing insurrection and acting in aid of civil authorities to restore order when called upon to do so by the president, subject to such conditions as may be prescribed by an Act of the National Assembly.

“It is, therefore, clear that the planned invasion and occupation of the South-East, the heartland of Alaigbo, is a flagrant breach of the Constitution,” the group insisted.

ADF also said that “with the hate songs against the Igbo that have flooded the airwaves in the North and the hanging quit notice on the Igbo from the North whose dealine falls within this period of the military occupation, ADF sees this military invasion as a coordinated and deliberate action to proactively cripple any opposition and cow and emasculate the Igbo heartland as a complement to the planned annihilation of Igbo in the North by the Arewa youths during the same period.”

ADf, therefore, said that the group would challenge the occupation by the army of Igbo land in court to seek a declarations by the courts that the action of Mr. President was an infringement on the Constitution as amended.

“Since the planned invasion clearly infringes on the powers of the National Assembly, ADF shall call on the National Assembly to stand up and defend her constitutional authority and integrity. And if the invasion and occupation proceeds as planned, the National Assembly shall be called upon to commence impeachment proceedings against Mr. President,” the group said.

The group said that the Operation Python Dance may be a subtle way President Buhari wanted to deal with all those demanding for restructuring and self-determination in Igbo land while the Arewa youths and some of their elders who issued quit notice to Ndigbo and have been “circulating hate speeches aimed at inciting their people to another orgy of pogrom against Ndigbo” are left unchecked.

    There is nothing call Occupation. The enemy- political poor northern bandits in the name of nigeria has neither capability nor capacity of military occupation of God given Republic Of Biafra of the five south east states. It is the final battle of the 50 years Biafra – Nigeria War, which God has given Biafra victory. It is BIAFRAN REVOLUTION WAR. It is Operation Burn Down the enemy in Biafraland. Biafran David’s Stone is Biafran Fire to Burn Down the enemy’s barracks, thugs in the name of military, police, dss etc., Burn Down the enemy’s vehicles etc. God brought them in Biafraland to crush them in Biafra hands, the way God brought Pharoah with his army to the red sea and crushed them. God has put the enemy in Biafra hands to crush- before the enemy shoot one bullet, set them on Biafran Fire, before they come out of their barracks, set their barracks on Biafran Fire, before they set up their road blocks, set them on Biafran Fire, before they move their vehicles etc., set their vehicles etc. on Biafran Fire- Burn Down them all. Any Igbo man or woman who do not stand for this final battle, do not play his or her role in this final battle, do not vacate Biafraland now, must go down with the enemy. God will raise the grass to fight for Biafra in this final battle, if the need be. God given Republic Of Biafra of the five south east states Deadline with the political name nigeria, is October 1st 2017. After the victorious storm, a Prosperous Nation will be built in Biafraland. God Is With Us!!!

    Impeachment proceedings is the key word in the light of exclusions, tribalism, nepotism, fragrant abuse of Federal Character, tacit support of violent herdsmen, boko haram etc

    As a Veteran Biafran Army Officer-Corps,ever ready to be mobilized for action whenever the accasion calls for it,I can only admonish our IPOB Youths to be very circurmspective in their agitations for the resoration of our Sovereign Republic of Biafra.
    Their agitations for our self-determination are legitimate and also of a noble cause.
    So, their agitations through gatherings and processions to honour our gallant fallen Biafran heroes et al, must always be peaceful and non-violent ones.
    Our IPOB and MASSOB Youths must also bear in mind that we Biafrans are peace loving and noble Christians.
    We are therefore, quite different from Buhari’s Fulani muslim folks and their Hausa/Kanuri muslim mongrel allies,with their common predilection for acts of barbarism,bellicosity,mass murder and savagery borne out of ethno-religious chauvinism.
    Thus,these other Nigerians,the muslim Born-to – rule-Bourgeoisies of the North,must not be given an
    excuse to do what they are best known for; brutal mass murder of hapless and innocent children, men, women,merely because they happen to Christians.
    This Paython Dance Exercise (Egwu Eke) ordered by Buhari in the South East,is nomore than a
    red herring being used by the Born-to- rule-Bourgeoesies of the Caliphate of Sokoto,to roil the polity and perhaps lead to an Army take over of the country, should anything unexpectedly happen to our
    President.They are getting ready to preempt the takeover of the presidency by yet another Infidel,
    Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
    It is about time wellmeaning and patriotic Nigerians across our political and religious aisle,begin to
    ask themselves some ethical questions; say,what is actually ailing our dear President?
    The seemingly state of conspiracy of silence coupled with an acute affliction of Stockholm Syndrome pervading the polity, is simply mind boggling.
    Yet, there is everything the matter wrong with this moribund country ours,now teetering at the precipice of disintegration.
    Why doesn’t President Buhari and his handlers tell the Sovereign Electorates,whose mandate he has
    to govern them,about his heallth status? It is their right to be furnished with that.
    It is clearly very obvious that, our dear President is terminally sick.He certainly looks very frail, incapacited and indeed too ‘kaputt’ for the daily daunting rigors of his Presidential duties.
    The old sick man,our dear President and his APC men aren’t forthcoming with what Buhari’s British Oncologists in London told him before they sent him packing home to us here in Nigerian?
    Certainly,the President couldn’t have been issued with a clean bill of health by his British Oncologists.No that would be one of those endless damning lies of Buhari’s Minister of Information,
    Liar Mohammed. Lol.
    No to the status quo ante Bellum!
    Down with Hausa/Fulani Islamic Hegemony!!
    All Hail Biafra,the Land of the Rising Sun!!!

    @Kalu, as far as God given Republic Of Biafra of the five south east states is concerned, it not about ipob group, it is not about massob group etc. It is about God given Republic Of Biafra, it is about Igbos of the five south east states in which every Igbo man or woman of the five south east states has a duty or vacates Biafraland immediately. 1967-1970 Biafran engagement is Conventional engagement. Biafran final battle engagement of 2017, is Revolutional engagement. War is about victory strategies. Rule of engagement is only for the aggressors- which is the enemy. Biafran is defence against the aggressors in Biafraland and crush the enemy with best strategies. Biafra did not go to sokoto, kano etc. to claim their land etc. The aggressors- political poor northern bandits in the name of nigeria are on Biafraland, claims Biafraland, plundered Biafraland, kill Biafrans etc. Tell me why it wont deserve it and worth it to Burn Down the enemy in Biafraland with Biafran David’s Stone- which is Biafran Fire? As I already said, any Igbo man or woman of the five south east states who do not stand for this final battle, do not play his or her role in this final battle, do not vacate Biafraland now, must go down with the enemy. God given Republic Of Biafra of the five south east states Deadline with the political name nigeria, is October 1st 2017. God Is With Us!!!

    The noise making illiterate assholes call sadique etc. should know that if mistakenly, any of their toy call bomb fall on Biafraland in this final battle of the 50 years Biafra – Nigeria War which has begun, missiles that will bury their land wont need to be fired from their neighbouring territories. God Is With Us!!!

    Buhari’s administration is consistently violating the fundermental democratic human rights of the NIGERIANS, especially in the South-East and South-South for obvious political cabals’ intentions and hidden agenda, especially of their political evils and wickedness!

    This administration has constistently violated the 1999 amended Constitution, especially on the Federal Character for Presidential appointments, among other things.

    He, President Buhari, intentionally refused to include any South-Easterner in the NIGERIA Security Agencies Presidential cabinets, instead he forcefully retired all those in the Military that are due for higher ranking positions, and should be promoted accordingly!

    The Northern cabals in NIGERIA Military have possibly thought that other NIGERIANS and the Global communities have forgotten the leaked top secret on how NIGERIA Military have denied the Southerners their overdue promotions for the various high-ranking, and got many of them recently retired unduely from the NIGERIA Military service, in further promotions of the Northern Muslims to fully take over those positions in the NIGERIA Military on political marginalizations and nepotism!

    This has further confirmed that President Buhari’s administration obviously promotes all sorts of corruptions of marginalizations, nepotism, militarization, brutality, oppressions and social injustices, especially against the Igbos in NIGERIA!

    His autocratic and detectorship administration is not different from the Idi Amin’s Military Detectorship in the then Uganda!

    The NIGERIA Nothern-Musilms dominated Military should be reminded that all eyes, especially from the Global communities, are watching them more closely than ever, and the whole world will eventually turn against them soonest, if they continue to militeralize the Igbos and other NIGERIANS, in the name of pyton dance or whatever tragedies they are promoting against the Igbos in NIGERIA!

    President Buhari should reseasonably stop playing the tragic hero, like his friend, Idi Amin, under Democratic Government in today’s NIGERIA!
