Below is an unedited text of claims by Dr Idris Ahmed of the Citizens United for Peace and Stability, (CUPS), that the British Government blocked him from Nigeria’s Information Minister regarding evidence against Nnamdi Kanu he also claims to have. It is his own side of the story just as the British might have theirs. But what this means is that the Nigeria-Britain tackle on Nnamdi Kanu has also assumed a citizen diplomacy dimension, with its own possible ripples and impacts on an unfolding story:
On Monday, 18/9/2017, the Citizens United for Peace and Stability, (CUPS) organisation published the news that it has asked the British Government to strip the fugitive terrorist, Nnamdi Kanu, of his British citizenship. We also promised to submit to the British government a significant amount of evidence that we compiled against Kanu and his terrorist IPOB organisation. This news went viral on social media. It was also covered by both Nigerian and foreign media houses. The Presidency and the Honourable Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, were made aware of this development.
On Saturday, 23/9/2017, at exactly 8.44 am, I received a phone call from the Honourable Minister of Information, confirming our earlier arrangement that as soon as he arrived in London on Sunday, 24/9/2017, he would call me to collect the evidence we compiled against Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB.
On Sunday 24/9/2017, I waited all day to hear from the Honourable Minister, but to no avail. I had no serious concerns, until I tried calling the Honourable Minister. I discovered that all my phone lines were actually barred! When I tried sending him email to inquire about his safety and whereabouts, I discovered that my email accounts too were barred. I could neither send nor receive any emails all day. All attempts to get through the Honourable Minister using my wife’s phones too proved futile. Up until the time of writing this report, I have not been able to get through to the Honourable Minister, let alone pass to him the CUPS evidence against Kanu and IPOB.
As many of you are aware, I am a Cryptologist, a Digital Forensics expert, and Cybersecurity expert. So, I know exactly what happened on Sunday, the 24/9/2017. It was not in the best interest of the hypocritical British government for me to have met Alhaji Lai Mohammed, let alone pass to him the evidence we compiled against Kanu and IPOB. So, the government deployed its communications blocking technologies to completely block me. This guaranteed that I never got to meet the Honourable Minister.
We at CUPS hold the view that it is evil, criminal, and defies all human decency, to allow Nnamdi Kanu to operate his treacherous Radio Biafra from London with impunity. No Nigerian government will ever allow anti-British terrorists to operate from its soil. If such were to happen, Britain will probably send missiles to knock out the terrorists and their facilities.
The British government uses its resources at GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) to hack into the telephone conversions, email correspondence, Facebook posts, Twitter twits, Instagram and Skype correspondence of everyone living in the UK, and shares the same with the CIA, according to the whistle-blower and former CIA agent, Edward Snowden. The same GCHQ resources can be used to hack anybody’s communication around the world. It is therefore absurd and insult to our collective intelligence, for the British government to claim that it did not know that Nnamdi Kanu is a terrorist operating a terrorist radio station from London, whose sole aim is to destroy the Nigerian state.
Fellow compatriots, you can see from this embarrassing and disgraceful saga, the enormity of the conspiracies against our beloved fatherland. A peaceful prosperous Nigeria is going to be a global superpower. Therefore Nigeria is seen with disdain by western powers as a stumbling block towards the occupation, domination, and exploitation of the African continent, which ironically is the richest continent on the planet, yet inhabited by the poorest people on the planet.
The task of saving Nigeria from peril and making her attain greatness is our collective responsibility. We must wake up from our slumber and participate in protecting and building the fatherland in whatever way we can.
May God save Nigeria and Nigerians! Amen.
Dr. Idris Ahmed.
