KILL THE IPOB IDEA IN YOUR HEAD
From: Nnoruka Udechukwu (SAN).
I, like many different Igbos have stood on the facet strains for a lot too lengthy, wishing this Biafran breeze fizzles away, but it surely’s now dangerously turning into a serious storm that constitutes an existential menace to Igbo civilization as we all know it.
These of you IPOB-ians, Sympathizers, Hearsay Mongers, Fb Warriors, Fb Megastars, Opinion Leaders and Propagandists escalating the already tense scenario should perceive that in the long run, you’ll all be losers, victims and on the identical time in additional bondage than you ever had been.
Not my want anyway, however the perceptible actuality. No conflict ever received received by feelings. Preparation and technique does, ask any battle-tested soldier. Even one of the best of them get eaten.
Little by little you guys are doing every part potential to draw avoidable battle to our area hoping that the worldwide group will intervene. You’ll be in for a shocker when this meal you’ve cooked for thus lengthy is served up.
Perceive this, I’ve monitored many revolutionary conflicts around the globe and know this for a reality, the worldwide group foot-drags at lower than a snail tempo, if in any respect, earlier than making an attempt any interventions in inside conflicts in a sovereign nation and that features America and Israel you’re relying on.
Conflict is a large legal responsibility and no Nation desires to meddle. The most effective they offer lately are reliefs not navy aids and that’s after many should have died together with those that began the hearth. I watched it occur to Libyans, Yemenis, Syrians and until now they nonetheless don’t have peace.
In addition to, you’d be silly to consider that these international locations, if ever there may be any, promising to assist Nnamdi Kanu are actually in for it. A few of them wish to use him to provoke battle and promote their weapons to each side and make blood .
Conflict is an all-comers affair and all types of demonically vicious gamers come to the slimy discipline to play the hellish sport of blood and demise.
On this case, Boko Haram that has largely been caged by the military will break away to roam with ambitions to lastly set up their Caliphate throughout Nigeria, all as a result of the Military now preventing on two fronts can not consider them having grow to be too stretched.
Guess what, they’ll include ISIS on their again. Nigerian Military will likely be preventing to maintain Nigeria collectively on one entrance, Boko Haram (ISIS Nigerian Department) with Caliphatist ambition on the opposite and Biafra with secessionist ambition on yet one more entrance.
That was how Syria received so advanced until date and any conflict in Nigeria at this time may have an analogous image. Whoever will get overwhelmed will face the opposite. Will probably be a protracted and troublesome journey and in contrast to the primary civil conflict with out Boko Haram within the equation, nobody can predict the tortuous finish.
Different Jihadists from throughout Africa and Center-East will take part as they all the time do wherever there’s instability to advance their totally different manufacturers of Islam. Ultimately you’ll depart Nigeria and uncover you’re preventing different strangers you don’t even know the way they got here into the image.
The massive boys (worldwide gamers) like Iran will likely be there to get there pound of flesh from Nigeria in revenge for the Shiites, Saudi will likely be there to defend Nigeria, and all will play.
Weapons retailers will then begin smiling to the banks. Guess the place the theatre of conflict can be, Igboland. We should not enable this!
Libyans thought they had been preventing Ghaddafi however after Ghaddafi, they found different strangers preventing them to determine their totally different manufacturers of Islam.
Similar factor in Syria. The phrases of Saif Al Islam Ghaddafi (Ghaddafi’s first son) retains ringing in my ears as he forewarned Libyans of those grim prospects, however “okuko nti ike nánu ife n’ite ofe” .
I by no means took him severely on the time however on reflection, I now see he knew higher as a result of it panned out simply as he predicted and Libya nonetheless isn’t out of the woods.
That’s the best way it’s lately of jihad consciousness internationally. When you ever expertise conflict, you’ll by no means take peace without any consideration. Conflict will not be a film as a few of you suppose. You would be the primary sufferer.
Are you able to abdomen watching your family members maimed, killed, raped, tortured, starve to demise below gradual and painful circumstances? These are the grim realities of conflict and in Africa, it’s executed with luciferous savagery and psychopathic sadism.
The worst of peace remains to be higher than one of the best of wars.
Humorous sufficient, most of our chest-beating IPOBians will probably die off inside the first month or two of the battle leaving those that knew nothing or are on the sidelines to defend themselves.
There will likely be nowhere to run to as no nation in West Africa will agree to just accept the ocean-sized quantity of refugees.
When the Rwandan genocide was looming, everybody was operating his mouth till the demise hurricane they worldwide group to intervene however none got here.
That’s the best way it’s. Paul Kagame, their present President was who ended it. They usually vowed to “by no means once more”. They learnt from historical past and have utterly eliminated tribalism from each aspect of nationwide life and are admirably making astounding progress as one in all Africa’s finest.
My recommendation, agreed, Buhari hasn’t handled us in addition to we needed, however wait until 2023 and make amends. I’ve listened to Nnamdi Kanu on a number of movies and my conclusion is that he’s plain naive on how issues roll in a battle scenario.
On one event he bragged that it will take him solely two weeks to achieve Sokoto within the occasion of conflict. I don’t know what weapons and extra-terrestrial methods he has to execute that.
Conflict is an unpredictable endeavor that you just’ll be ignorant to estimate which course it goes. As it’s, he has no weapons simply but and is bragging. Lots of you consider him and even ascribe infallibility to his phrases.
I’ve lived a few years overseas and what a few of you don’t know is that lots of our individuals there egging you on don’t have immigration papers and are praying for an outbreak of hostilities in Nigeria to allow them to declare asylum on the again of it.
We should advise ourselves on this present path of self-annihilation. A few of you suppose Biafra would be the finish of all of your issues, so South Sudan thought, as did Eritrea, however sorry it is going to be the start of latest ones.
Now take this to the Financial institution, it can even be far tougher for any nation to the touch any battle right here with a protracted spoon than it was within the sixties.
Motive? Then there was the prospect of oil however at this time oil is out of vogue and whilst it’s, Nigeria is begging for patrons and no one’s shopping for. Osinbajo mentioned that a lot a couple of days again.
Now, inform me, in the event that they spend their cash intervening in your battle to avoid wasting your asses, what is going to they get in return? The most effective they will do for you is to sentence what’s going on, then extra out-pouring of condemnations after which extra unleashing of floodgates of condemnations, however NO ACTION when you die in numbers.
You typically argue name for referendum will not be a name for conflict. I agree utterly! Very true! Referendum is a proper not a privilege. Even Buhari asserted that a lot in favour of Palestine when he addressed the UN.
Nonetheless, it’s plain naivety to imagine that each one that’s enshrined in worldwide regulation is enforceable. UN has no mechanism of enforcement.
Nations and Dictators continuously flout it and nothing occurs. Even when one thing had been to occur you’ll all have decomposed in your graves by then. A present of bravado won’t lead you anyplace “Umunnem” .
Name me a coward should you like, however Chinua Achebe informed us that we frequently stand in the home of a coward to level at the place a courageous man ONCE lived.
In any case, isn’t it foolishness to problem a military that has been stockpiling arms since 1960 whenever you alternatively haven’t purchased a bullet simply but?
Papa Achebe places it this manner, “Solely a silly man can go after a leopard together with his naked palms”.
As impulsive and as tempting as it might get, tone down your rhetorics, invectives, acerbics, and cursing on social media. Cherish the peace you now have a minimum of Igbos usually are not worse-off than different areas regardless of by no means being in energy.
Whereas there may be grinding poverty in different areas, the best revenue per capita within the nation is posted by Anambra and different Igbo states ain’t doing badly.
Our individuals stay properly, construct higher homes in comparison with different areas and it’s all a miracle given the scratch we began from after the conflict.
Why can we wish to throw all that away due to ego and begin yet again? Is it a curse? The Hausas although having been in energy don’t even stay a greater high quality of life than Igbos.
Let’s be sensible and never give alternative to destroy all we’ve achieved as a individuals.
I condemn within the strongest of phrases the killing of unarmed individuals by Nigerian troopers, killer herdsmen, and don’t by any means say Nigeria is what we wish it to be however perceive Biafra wasn’t Ojukwu’s first alternative.
At Aburi his alternative was a return to true federalism which he knew was a greater deal for us than secession.
Nigeria did not honour that settlement and continued the killings forcing him to declare a Biafran Republic to avoid wasting his individuals from slaughter and it’s comprehensible.
Nigeria owes us tons of apologies, I agree. However brothers, let’s suppose once more! A Biafra at this time will even be far much less economically viable than it will have been then.
Motive is as a result of then we might have used oil cash to jump-start the brand new nation however at this time oil is so unsellable to the extent that Venezuela with arguably the biggest reserves is grappling with extreme financial issues.
Kick-starting a brand new nation from the fundamentals can be painfully gradual and should outlive our technology to even get the essential issues in place.
Arewa youths know that, the explanation they’ve requested Nigerian Authorities to let Igbos go, just for Nnamdi Kanu to begin asking for Benue and Rivers as a result of he is aware of that Igboland alone isn’t viable.
Asking for Benue is laughable as a result of they had been by no means a part of Biafra and have made it clear to all, as did totally different Rivers teams that they don’t need Biafra.
A handful of his collaborators from these areas pledging allegiance to him doesn’t equate to a whole individuals. Majority of their individuals hate this Biafran thought and have made that a lot clear.
Some humorous IPOBians are additionally relying on Asari Dokubo and FFK. What a humorous bunch getting used to battle different individuals’s battle. Why received’t they take up the gauntlet or is it solely us that’s struggling injustice?
Don’t even suppose corruption will all of a sudden disappear in a brand new Biafra as some naive IPOBians hope. If they offer you Biafra at this time, your eyes will confide in new disagreeable realities lots of you haven’t even factored-in in your agitation however then it will have been late.
I do know voices like mine are sometimes loathed and cursed by IPOBians however a few of us who know the reality can not hold quiet when you drag us all into avoidable chaos.
I owe our individuals the reality as I see it. Curse me all you need, it’s OK. “Umunnem, ka ako’n’uche na udo chianu biko!” Endurance solves all issues, with time. Let our individuals suppose once more and know what’s looming.
Cease your fb and social media vituperations, cursing, grand standing and be part of me to teach others.
De-escalate this case and communicate phrases of kindness to others. Even mighty America de-escalates after tensions with Russia. It’s referred to as knowledge.
North Korea provokes South Korea most instances however the South all the time de-escalates tensions understanding that the North hasn’t received something to lose within the occasion of conflict however lovely South Korea will lose quite a bit.
In our case, all the attractive homes and streets in Igboland will likely be razed to the bottom. Why ought to we be beginning afresh on a regular basis? It should even be extra painful if we lose once more as was the case in 1970.
As it’s, it’s not trying good! Yet another factor. We will be part of different ethnic teams to demand restructuring. Allow us to not face our widespread enemy alone.
Britain is our enemy utilizing minority Fulani to enslave Nigerians. We will collectively liberate Nigeria from Fulani if solely we will unite.
Let’s cease all these provocative language and be part of forces with the West and the Center belt. See throughout the place Igbos are killed on day by day bases. The worst is our behaviour in different individuals’s land.
When you’re reasoning together with me, please copy and re-post this message”.
