It is no doubt that Nigerian leaders have failed its citizens, and the Political elites have marginalized and impoverished the people, which has led to the emergence of separatist groups in Nigeria. This is an unequivocal fact.
When some of us saw the lack of sincerity in this whole agitation and cried out, we were labelled Sabo.
It is clear how to go about actualizing self-determination in a Democratic setting. The international laid down rules are clear. The Montevideo Conventions spells it out.
The Scottish example is there also to emulate, especially after suffering unnecessary loss of Igbo lives during the Biafra war.
WHEN WILL NDI IGBO START TELLING OURSELVES THE TRUTH ?
It was clear that IPOB never intended to go about it in a peaceful manner when they refused to float and support a Political party and have Reps and Senators speak for them in Parliament just like the Scottish have done with the Scottish National Party which was formed in 1934 to bring about referendum for Scottish independence.
We saw this misguided agitation and asked questions, but we’re told to be quiet and labelled as Sabo.
We warned of the dangers of arming non- state actors and the inherent state of anarchy it would induce in our region, but politicians and Igbo elders who cherished IPOB for its nuisance value kept quiet.
Many of us live in the UK and the USA, and even when faced with the overwhelming compelling evidence of how MNK hijacked the End SARS protest, and used his far reaching radio Biafra platform to incite gullible and jobless Youths and his followers, to disarm and kill soldiers and Police personnel and those they perceive to be Sabotuers , many still feign ignorance of the gravity of his crime against the State .
He encouraged them to break Prisons and taught them on air how to make Molotov Cocktales. He even boasted of giving just one order, and Tinubus Hotel was set on fire. He told them to burn the airport in Lagos, etc. TVC news was burnt down. We know who owns TVC News. The audio is easily available on YouTube.
CAN ANYONE GET AWAY WITH TELLING LONDON YOUTHS ON THE RADIO TO KILL UK POLICE AND SOLDIERS AND IT IS INDEED CARRIED OUT WITHOUT BEING LOCKED UP FOR A LONG TIME ?
After his broadcasts, we saw Prison breaks and ambushing of Soldiers and Police men and women and then the killings started.
They moved to Rivers State/ Portharcourt but Gov. Wike did not tolerate them and for the first time we heard of a civilian putting a bounty on the head of a sitting Governor in Nigeria. MNK put a bounty of N100m on the head of Gov. WIKE.
Ndigbo still in support of IPOB started screaming that Wike had brought in Soldiers to kill unarmed Igbo Youth in Obigbo.
Time to admit we supported evil.
Gov. Wike made Rivers uncomfortable for them and they moved to Imo State where ndi Imo handled them with kids gloves and we saw all manner of evil unleashed in Imo State to the extent of going to burn down the country home of Gov. Hope Uzodinma. We saw beheadings and Cannibalism.
TUFIIAAAAA KWA !!! ARUU !!!
Igbo Elite and elders did not condemn it loud enough perhaps because Governor Hope Uzodinma is an APC Governor.
Gov. Hope Uzodinma brought in the Soldiers and ndi Igbo started the complaint again that he brought them in to kill his people.
Gov. Hope is still battling with them in Imo State and has managed to push them out now into Anambra State.
Now Anambra is the ground zero of all manner of evil in Alaigbo. Kidnapping, extortion, armed robbery, car jacking, ritual killings, etc.
When a people openly say they do not want Police or Soldiers on their streets, then the result is what we have in Igboland today. ANARCHY.
Onye kpara nku ahuhu kporo ngwere obia.
Nwata na agba surugede amaro na surugede bu egwu ndi mmuo.
Openly lay blame at the right quarters. No sacred cows.
Carry out an investigation into the activities of IPOB since 2012 when elders like Dr Dozie Ikedife and Gen Achuzie ,Bar Emeka Emekesiri who started IPOB.Find out the motive behind the formation of original IPOB by the Elders.
Federal Government should set up committee to look into various agitation in the south east in order to find lasting solution.
Federal Government should note that Simon Ekpa and Nnamdi Kanu are pursuing the same thing and more deadly people will stand up tomorrow if the root cause of injustice is not addressed .
TIME TO TAKE BACK ALAIGBO
