Donald Trump and Nnamdi Kanu

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu on Thursday, November 10, wrote an open letter to the United States of America’s President-elect Donald Trump.

In his letter sent to NAIJ.com, the IPOB leader congratulated Trump for his victory at the just concluded US election.

Kanu also warned the president-elect of the responsibilities he will be facing as the 45th president of the US.

He also said there is a need for Trump to be firm, knowing that most African leaders pose a danger to world peace and a threat to the US.

Kanu further listed benefits the US and its leadership stands to gain with building a relationship with Biafra.

Below is the Kanu’s letter to Donald Trump:

Dear Mr President-Elect 

It is with great joy that I Nnamdi Kanu received the news of your election victory as the 45th President of the United States of America at the just concluded US Presidential election.

On behalf of the Indigenous People of Biafra, please accept my warmest congratulations on your well-deserved victory. 

Mr President, the American people have given you their mandate and trust, not only to make America Great Again but also to bring positive changes in the affairs of humanity.

Your victory has placed a historic and moral burden upon you to liberate enslaved nations in Africa, trapped in artificially created boundaries designed to reinforce colonial domination and subjugation.

Self-Determination is a sacred right of all people as demonstrated by the good people of United Kingdom when they opted out of the European Union.

It is imperative to draw historical parallels between your victory and that of the great Dwight Eisenhower a fellow Republican, who was instrumental in the dismantling of European colonialism in Africa.

I pray that you follow in his footsteps, by bringing to a deserved end neo-colonial enslavement, currently championed by puppet dictatorial and tyrannical regimes.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have every confidence that as the leader of the free world, you have both the capacity and the will to confront the challenges ahead and meet the expectations of the American people in particular and the oppressed people of the world in general.

Your victory has therefore come with the responsibility to unite and heal the wounds of the past, including the re-writing of some aspects of the dark history of American foreign policy in Africa, championed by established interests, who worked through successive US administrations to actively sponsor undemocratic rogue regimes, corrupt dictatorships and more recently unrepentant arch genocidists. 

Such rulers, especially in Africa, remain a direct danger to world peace and security but more importantly a potent and subsisting threat to United States interests in Africa. 

A Trump administration should resist every temptation, be it a financial inducement to US politicians, political blackmail or otherwise, to partner with these tyrannical regimes in black Africa that specialise in ‘crushing’ the inalienable rights  of its citizens, while using this as a cover to loot the treasury dry.

Tyranny is bad for mankind because history has always taught us that all great wars were started by tyrants.  It is your responsibility, Sir, as the leader of the free world, to hastily undo the mess that US Africa foreign policy has become under the Barack Obama administration. 

The rights of distinct ethnic nationalities to seek self-determination should be upheld. A free Biafra would be an ally of the United States of America on many fronts, as both nations share the same Judeo-Christian-Greco-Roman value system with a jealous disposition to safeguarding the rights of the individual.

May the Almighty God give you wisdom and protect you as you embark upon this historic service to humanity.

Police reacts to report of its officers collecting bribe with POS

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) on Wednesday, June 21, reacted to a viral video of an officer caught on camera using Point of Sale (POS) machine to collect bribe.

Many Nigerians had expressed dismay at the attitude of the officer, which they said represented the level of corruption in the Nigeria Police Force.

We gathered that Abayomi Shogunle, the Assistant Commissioner Of Police, Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit in a statement released on its Facebook page said the force once used handheld machines to verify vehicle registration details.

Shogunle also asked anyone who at any time paid a bribe to a police officer using a POS to come forward with proof.

It was reported earlier that the incident reportedly took place on Tuesday, June 20, at Olowora Street, in Mafoluku area of Oshodi.

The Lagos state Police Command also dismissed the video footage making the rounds on social media about one of its officers using a Point-of-Sale machine popularly known as POS to extort a commercial motorcyclist.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, on Wednesday, June 21, said it was necessary to address the situation so as to clarify the account of how the incident in question was reported on various social media platforms.

He disclosed that the video, which drew the attention of well-meaning Nigerians, saw a police officer, attached to the Makinde Police Division, allegedly using a POS to extort a motorcyclist and his passenger on Olowora Street, Mafoluku in Oshodi area on June 20, 2017.

Famous-Cole in a statement said, “The Lagos state police command would like to inform the general public that none of its personnel is in use of a POS machine in any part of the state.”

“The command would also like to state that the officer in the video is being investigated and the commercial bike rider has given a factual account of the event that happened to justify the actions of the police officer.”

“The officer and his team on that fateful day accosted a commercial bike rider and passenger who had a bag on him. The passenger upon inquiry from the police officer about the contents of his bag brought out a POS machine and other documents.

“When asked why he was in possession of a POS, the passenger said his customers usually paid for their utility bills with the POS machine. The passenger was then asked to produce a form of identification which he did and was asked to go by the policeman that accosted him. Famous Cole Added

The PPRO, however, urged members of the public to verify information and its sources before use on social media to avoid misconceptions emanating from false information.

In a previous report,  two traffic wardens, Musa Muktar with force number 394120 GDI and Shuaibu Suleman with number 10627 were sacked for alleged extortion.

The announcement was made by ACP Abayomi Shogunle, the assistant commissioner of police in charge of the Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit (PCRRU), in Abuja on June 20, 2017.

The statement showed that the sacked officers were attached to the Wuse Police Division in the Federal Capital Territory Command.
