BREAKING NEWS: Nigerian Concentration Camp: Cruel and Unusual Punishment! Torture Video of Indigenous People of Biafra

I was just having a regular afternoon when I received an email from a member of IPOB, the Indigenous People of Biafra. He had been having some problem uploading this video on twitter and I was trying to help him with his settings, as it appeared that he was being censored. A 45 second clip was seen on twitter but it was nothing like the entire video, which is below. Shock and horror are understated nouns to describe what you will see here. It looks like the IPOB members are being forced to swim in filthy shallow water in a drainage ditch and then cram themselves into a pipe full of other IPOB members. The guard wears an Adidas jacket and as he whips the boys, he screams "Move Move Move Move" in English and some other language to them in the water. There is a long line of others waiting to enter the ditch and he yells "Hunch Hunch" as they do a frog jump. Then you see some guys hanging from their feet from the trunk of a tree while the guard laughs. If anyone knows where this camp is located and recognizes the prisoners clothing, please contact me by email at naomilitvin@yahoo.com

Biafra: As The World Turns

On November 18, 2017, Nigerian elections will take place in an enclave known as Biafra Land in the so-called country of Nigeria on the continent of Africa. Biafra seeks #BiafraExit, their self-determination and freedom from Nigeria (the Zoo) through peaceful Referendum. Biafrans, who consist of many tribes, the largest being the Igbo, were ordered by Nnamdi Kanu, their Jewish leader to stay at home. "No elections will take place until we are given a referendum (for Biafra Exit),"  Kanu said. "There will be no election here anymore."  The Biafran people will stay home even in the face of reports that the Nigerian government is sending 28,000 military troops into Anambra. 

On September 14, 2017 Nnamdi Kanu went missing and is presumed dead. His body has not been found and the Nigerian government denies even attacking his home. But his voice is still vibrant, kept alive because of the great people of Biafra. And if his dead body, and those of his parents, are found, I can only imagine what will happen in the Land of the Rising Sun. To this day the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) maintain a strict non-violence policy. But with a physical confirmation of his and his parents deaths? All bets are off.
"IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, told Vanguard that the attackers wore army and police uniforms and drove into the palace of the traditional ruler of Afaraukwu, who is the father of Nnamdi Kanu and started shooting people. He said in a statement: “We did not clash with anybody or group. The attackers wore Nigerian soldiers and Nigeria Police uniforms and came to kill our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, in his compound at Afaraukwu, Umuahia and started shooting sporadically and killed five people and up to 30 other people had bullet wounds. After attacking our people, they drove off. They came in five Hilux vans.”
The day that Kanu went missing, when the Nigerian army burst onto the family compound and into the palace, Kanu's father, His Royal Majesty Eze Israel Okwu Kanu and mother Ugoeze Nnenne Kanu, were home with Nnamdi and other family members, friends, and members of the unarmed, non-violent Biafra Security Service. Many died violently, some were taken alive, some shot and thrown into the bush where they later died, and a few made videos with their cell phones which made it out with survivors. About a month later, the Nigerian killers returned to loot whatever belongings had not been taken on September 14. They didn't know about the CCTV on premises and they were captured on video.

I was told by someone that he was "safe." The person that said that is no longer in my sphere. It is my opinion, that even if Nnamdi Kanu IS alive, it means he is not safe. Either he is in Nigerian prison somewhere, or in the hands of a new and violent group that has popped up who is bragging on twitter about performing vigilante justice, including mass murder and arson. That group, I believe, may be backed financially by a psychopath whose reckless grandiosity will be their undoing. He and his group intend to usurp IPOB (Indigenous People of Biafra) to form a new government, while allowing IPOB to be a political group if they are loyal to the "new government." Needless to say I have blocked these terrifying people that I believe are involved on twitter, my email, and facebook.

So many theories abound. Conspiracies, insanity, mass murder, arson and more...

Now back to the elections.
The precursor to the 'Stay at Home' order of November 18 was a few days ago on November 5 at the Enugu election. Biafrans were also told to stay at home and not vote. Twin explosions tore through the polling area.  IPOB hailed the boycott and said that Biafra is in control. 
I could go on and on but there's plenty of news that you can find online for yourselves. 
For now, I will sign off with a sincere hope for the best. 

This video below, was after Nnamdi Kanu was released from Kujo prison, and before the events spoken of above. Notice the Israeli and American flags flying.

#Free Read Here: TheMasadaFaktor Prologue #Novel #MediterranianNoir


The Masada Faktor©
 A Mediterranean Noir by  
Naomi Litvin

The Cover Image

The cover image is a stained glass masterpiece that was created by the Maumejean Brothers in July 1941 at the Saint Jacques Church in Montgeron south of Paris, France as a visible sign of French Resistance during the Nazi occupation. It was not noticed for seventy years until January 2011. The stained glass depicts Adolph Hitler as King Herod. Hitler’s moustache is hidden behind his arm in order not to be noticeable but the black fringed hair clearly depicts Hitler as Herod, violently murdering Saint Jacques who represents the Jewish people. Jacques is French for James which is Jacob in Hebrew. Jacob, considered a patriarch, was the father of the twelve tribes of Israel.

Prologue

A group of six Schutzstaffel, SS German Nazis met in secret toward the end of World War II. It was the first week of May 1945 and they had gathered in their favorite location, a member’s home, in a downstairs hidden room, with access through a false wall built into the water closet next to the boiler.

The light was dim and yellowed and the chairs smelled musty. Several cases of German cognac that had been stashed there by German troops was available to fortify and bolster their courage and assuage the boredom while they waited for instructions.

Higher level SS operatives had organized these groups of four to six SS per cell. They called the overall group Odessa, the Organization of Former SS Members and it was secretly founded the year before as it became clear that Germany was losing the war.

The immense amount of stolen wealth from the Jews would finance their plan for the continuation of post-war mischief related to the annihilation of remaining Jews. With these monetary resources and technical and military Nazi experts they and the other groups organized and awaited their orders.

What this group finally received by messenger that night came in a worn grey leather pouch, and inside was a folder, the label handwritten with purple ink: The Masada Faktor. This group did not include technical experts, their value however, was in their dedication to the cause. They felt relief but trepidation as they opened the envelope which contained six sets of duplicate secret orders.

Their meetings so far had included speculation as to what their orders would be but they knew whatever it was, it would include the continuation of the destruction of the Jews worldwide. Their mission would be to strictly follow those orders.

They also drank freely. Sometimes Bruno would bring drugs that they would share.

“Tonight I have a special treat,” Bruno rasped.

The five others included Wilhelm, Erich, Gustav, Joachim, and Oskar. “I told you no more drugs,” Gustav growled, and pushed Bruno off his chair.

“Stop this immediately,” Oskar piped in with his bizarre high pitched voice. “From this moment on we will not use any more pharmaceuticals, only alcohol will be allowed.”

Oskar slapped first Bruno and then Gustav across the face as Wilhelm, Joachim, and Erich watched wide-eyed, nodding with a mixture of fear and disgust.

Silence ensued as they sat and read the plans for the operation. The Masada Faktor was a strategy that sought to tie a new fiasco against the Jews to an important historical event in Jewish history that was an obsession of Hitler’s.

Updates to WANTED NIGERIAN WAR CRIMINALS LIST #BiafraExit #BiafraReferendum

Last year on September 7, 2016 , I published a list of Biafra's Most Wanted Nigerian War Criminals. I did this in response to Nigeria posting a list of Wanted Biafrans while the leader of the IPOB (Indigenous People of Biafra,) Nnamdi Kanu was still being held in Kuje Prison in Abuja, Nigeria. My list is not completely inclusive of the current genocidal terrorist butchers at large. Many that have made the Biafrans' life hell since the amalgamation of Nigeria in 1914 by Lord Lugard, British colonialist are thankfully dead. But new ones arise from the pits of Hell daily.

I had the names of twenty of those that IPOB considers MOST wanted for their war crimes. I had help from Biafra Intelligence and other well informed Biafrans that shall remain anonymous for their own safety.

Today I will add six more wanted Nigerian war criminals which brings my total to twenty-six. Today I had help from one of my sources. I will begin with the new additions:

Exclusive! Conversations With Naomi: Adam Gordon, English As A Second Language Teacher #TheRaiseAct #ESL

Adam Gordon, BA, MA
ESL Teacher


I have known Adam Gordon online for many years and continue to appreciate his presence and support on Twitter. His profession as a teacher of English as a Second language has interested me. The Raise Act  (Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment, the bill introduced earlier this year by Sens. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and David Perdue, R-Ga.) was publicly backed last week by President Donald Trump 

Naomi: AdamWelcome to Conversations With Naomi. Thanks for lending your expertise. I want to get a true perspective on immigrants learning English. The Raise Act might be a negative for immigrants wanting to come to America that do not speak English. It brings the humanitarian versus economic issues of immigration to the forefront. I believe your opinion and experience is crucial to discussion of this topic.  First, I have questions about your background as it applies here. Your views as an expert on immigrants learning English is crucial. Please tell our readers what led you to pursue your profession as an English as a Second Language teacher?

Adam: I got my BA in history. At first, I wanted to be a history teacher. Before I got my MA, I wanted to spend some time traveling. I applied to the Peace Corps and I also applied to a job teaching English in Japan. I decided on the job in Japan. A one year contract turned into three years in Japan and one year in South Korea. I enjoyed that experience a lot. When I returned to Texas, I decided that English as a Second Language was the field I wanted to teach.

Naomi: How did teaching English in Japan and South Korea impact you? What did you enjoy the most?

Adam: I enjoyed seeing new places and meeting new people. People who actually live in a country get to have a view that short term tourists don’t get. I gained a better world view by living in these countries and making friends from many countries. People who live in a new country have to learn to be adaptable. It impacted me because I know what my students go through when they try to learn a new language in the United States. I also understand what it means to move to a new country alone.

A Holocaust is a Holocaust is a Holocaust: Laura's Story from Biafra War Memories



The story below is so similar to my mother's and her family's in the
Holocaust in Europe. At the end Laura tries to discourage Biafra from trying for their independence from Nigeria again. It is unimaginable for her that it will happen again. The killings, the starvation, the Death Marches, rape, pillage... more than we can imagine although all of that visits us in our nightmares from our parents' stories. My mother used to say, "If there is a G-d in heaven, WHY?" The reason Biafra must try again is because the genocidal butchers are bottomless in their thirst for blood; they will revisit you whether you agitate or not. Eventually they will come for you. You must go. And if they don't want you to? Then the horror will visit them, and their families.






"My father…they butchered him"
"My name is Laura Nwando Onwualu.  I was born 1954 in northern Nigeria, Plateau State, Kura Falls"
I don’t remember much about the Nigerian Biafran War but I remember then I was in primary 6, 1967 or 66. Yes, 66 -67 No, then, there was a time – they started teaching us a song, you know, it says it is going to be our new anthem for our new country, Biafra. So we were learning the song. What we are going to do with it we don’t know but then we started noticing people in the north – because then I was staying with my grandmother in Onitsha [in the Southeast] – we started noticing our family members in the North coming home [to the Southeast] you know. We don’t know they came back telling us stories of killing in the North about how they will come to the house. The Hausas will come to the houses, kill them you know especially the men and my father came home with my mother because they were in the North. My family came home. Though my father wasn’t killed. He was on leave [from work]. He came home and they were telling me stories. One afternoon my mother was in the market. We were home and people started running and I was very young then. I didn’t know why they were running. They said the Hausas have crossed the bridge and that they are coming into Onitsha.
We were hearing gun shots and bomb blasts and all that so I gathered my brothers and started running with the neighbors. We didn’t know where we were going. We left the house and we were just trekking and people were falling and people were crying you know because they couldn’t see their loved ones. My mother came home looking for us you know. Eventually she found us. Then my father had gone back to the North because after his leave he had to go back and we didn’t see him again so.
“We were hearing gun shots and bomb blasts”
Yes, after his leave, he decided to go back because then he was working with the white men. He was persuaded not to go back because of the killings [there in the North] but he said no. He just wants to get there, take permission from his work place and come back [to join us in the Southeast in Onitsha] so he left one morning and then we never see him again and that was it. So eventually somebody came to tell us that he was killed. He was killed actually with some people that, they were to board the train, that was September 29, 1966, they were to board the train coming back to the Southeast from Jos, Bukuru precisely. They were waiting for the train at the station that night to come to the Southeast so these Hausas, they came and killed all of them there. That was how we never saw him, my father, again till date.

Judith Bergman: Why Don't All Black Lives Matter?


My friend, Judith Bergman, a writer, columnist, lawyer and political analyst



Why Don’t All Black Lives Matter?

Western social justice warriors couldn't care less about Biafra

Fifty years ago, on May 30, 1967, Biafrans seceded from Nigeria, and declared their own state. The Nigerian government refused to accept the secession and responded by launching a war on Biafra in July 1967. The assault included a blockade of the nascent state, and resulted in the genocide of more than two million Biafrans, many of whom were children who starved to death because of the blockade. After three years of war, the nascent state of Biafra ceased to exist. 
Biafrans are an indigenous African people, who are ethnically predominantly Igbo. The territories that constitute present-day Nigeria became a British colony in 1914, merging a number of different indigenous African peoples in the artificial construct of Nigeria, among them the Biafrans. In 1960, Nigeria became independent, retaining the artificial shape left over from British colonization. 
Most likely, you will have heard nothing about this Biafran anniversary, nor about the peaceful efforts of Biafrans today to bring about an independent Biafra and the Nigerian government’s brutal suppression of those efforts. The media is not covering it, universities and think tanks are not hosting conferences about it, the United Nations Human Rights Council is not passing resolutions about it, and human rights activists and social justice warriors are not marching in the streets for Biafra. The world community is universally and shamefully silent on the plight of the Biafrans.
