LET US MAKE OIL FIELD A BATTLEFIELD

LET US MAKE OIL FIELD A BATTLEFIELD

By Chijioke Ifeanyi
For Family Writers

Buhari spoke from China without mincing words that he would give Niger Delta militants the same treatment he gave Boko haram. This is simply interpreted as “I will bring war to your door steps”. Our popular adage says ‘it is only a three that hears it would be cut down and still remain there’. I have always maintained in my column that any attack against Avengers is attack against Biafra. If we fold our arms and watch, what happened in Odi will happen again. We must be truthful to ourselves, Nigerian military cannot near the militants because Nigeria is not worth dying for. Buhari will take this war to innocent Biafrans across the Niger and slaughter us. Let us make our oil field a battlefield to avoid repeat of Odi and others. Let us make it a battlefield and see who dies at the end of the day.
   
Whatsoever the case maybe, Buhari will not love to dialogue or grant the request of either releasing Kanu or restructuring Nigeria because Hausa/Fulani people will not gain. Anyone looking up to peace is making a huge mistake and that is why we should prepare offensively than suffer another round of massacre which started since 1945. Niger Delta Avengers will not stop until their fair demands are met. Buhari has deployed troops to our homes which is testament to the fact that he is warming up for a full blown war and we shall be the worst fools not to make it up from there.
   
While some people are making derogatory statements about the Avengers and some sabotaging the people of Biafra across the Niger, it is important to look beyond money and exploiting the situation. The future is far greater than what you can be given today. Nobody knows who Avengers are and it is important to seal your lips or respectfully mind your business instead of mount unwarranted opposition to what is just. One would ask why choose gun and bombs instead peacefully agitate and another would answer “ Nnamdi Kanu that peacefully agitated, what did he get in return?” NDA is not about Ijaw, Isoko, Itshekiri, Egbema, Aguleri, it is about old eastern region, with commanders across the length and breadth of our land.
   
There is the need for establishment of new settlement for Biafrans living in oil field; they must vacate the areas for a full blown war. Biafrans must not die again and it is the duty of Avengers to stand and uphold what is right. I have read again and critically assessed what is contained on the demand list; I came to the conclusion that this is the people’s battle. Youths across Biafra land must join in this campaign for a better future. Diasporas must unite and show their support to Avengers because it must be gotten right this time around.
   
While few of us are of the opinion that releasing Nnamdi Kanu and restructuring the contraption called Nigeria will neutralize Avengers, I am of the view that Avengers should go beyond restructuring because the contraption-Nigeria is a failed state. No form of restructuring can save this dead prison, peaceful dissolution is the key and should peaceful dissolution be achieved through war, so be it that I say ‘more grease to the elbow of the Avengers’.
   
Militancy in our land is more severe to Nigeria than Boko haram, Boko haram kill and destroy human life but militants kill and destroy Nigeria’s life. This contraption lives on oil and when each bomb goes off, her breath is taken and it shall continue till she breathes no more and die. There is still avenue to handle this and I expect Kanu’s influence to be considered. Avengers bombing oil installations, we have nothing to lose because the oil is owned by our oppressors. One would say they risk environmental pollution and another would ask “has our land ever been clean?” We must understand the need to fight this battle with everything we have.
   
Finally, if oil fields are not made battlefields, I fear we might lose our people like we lost in Odi and other places. Let us motivate for an all out war and settle it once and for all. Avengers must understand that this is not a battle but a war that must be fought with everything and destruction of Nigeria is the priority or demands even if not all are met. While these gallant militants fight, let us stand behind the just.
