NORTHERN ELDERS/LEADERS' SUPPORT OF FULANI HERDSMEN TERRORISTS: WHY I PRAISE THEM

NORTHERN ELDERS/LEADERS' SUPPORT OF FULANI HERDSMEN TERRORISTS: WHY I PRAISE THEM

By Ifeanyo chijioke
For Family Writers

When the 19 Northern Governors with their Elders rose from a meeting and declared their support for Fulani herdsmen terrorists even-though they condemned their attack, I was quick to raise my thumb not because am ok with their action but because I asked myself " If Nnamdi Kanu who committed no crime was attacked by Biafran Elders and sold out to the enemies by her leaders, what exactly would they do if Nnamdi Kanu acted like Fulani herdsmen terrorists?" I raised my thumb for the Northern class because I wish our own can learn from them.

No matter what you may think, in cases like this, I often wish Biafran leaders/ Elders can be swapped. The Northern Governors and Elders should be praised no matter what you may think, they understand Nigeria and they are very much aware they have nothing to do with infidels like Biafrans, Nigeria is about conquering what and where you can conquer. How dare anyone call Fulani herdsmen criminals when they are only fighting to gain a ground of survival? Does the life of a Biafran count? If a Biafran life matters, then the perpetrators of 1967 genocide would not be walking free and contesting elections.

If our life matters, Buhari won't massacre us in Onitsha, Aba, Portharcourt and Asaba, yet nothing happened and neither did Biafra land Governors/Elders convened a meeting. If Fulani herdsmen are on Islamization course, who are you to call them criminals when they are working the script of those Leaders and Elders. The Elders and Leaders understand what their position is all about. If one compares Northern class reaction to Biafra-political class and Elders reaction, you will entirely come to the conclusion that Northern class deserves praises. An adage says " A mother rather die than give her child away to the enemies, no matter how bad that child may be, a mother won't cease shouting my child my child in defense of the child".

During the time of Boko Haram, they Northerner Governors and Elders supported Boko Haram from beginning. They fought fervently to protect Boko haram against the outsiders to internally handle the insurgence. I remembered a suit against Ihejirika in ICC. I heard a voice shouting “Attack against Boko haram is attack against the North". I remembered Bornu Elders convened a meeting and warned against killing Boko haram and what the consequences will be. But during the time of MASSOB under Uwazurike, tears dropped from my eyes. I remembered Peter Obi deployed military men from the North to mercilessly slaughter our own. I heard "shoot at sight". I heard Ezu river genocide perpetrated by our Politicians and Elders. I heard and saw their offensive against their people that are no-where near terrorists. When that epoch ended, they smiled and lived on the blood of their own. When Boko haram surfaced and they saw how Northern Elders and Leaders protected their subjects tagged “Misguided brothers" we thought they have learnt their lessons but shortly the easiest examination ever known to man reached, they fumbled again and again. They stumbled and tumbled, cluelessly ranting from one end to another. The examination went like this.


Nnamdi Kanu was arrested for only critically broadcasting on Radio Biafra, he never killed or anyone killed for him. He sacrificed his quest on the altar of freedom of speech and never contravened any known law. Despite the awareness that UN charter of 2007 gave right to self determination and Nigeria was signatory to it, this law abiding man was arrested. From a royal family and a crown Prince, he was arrested and abused simply for fighting a just "notion". The Biafra political class was gripped by fear and their lips sealed. The Elders their lips opened only sold Nnamdi Kanu out to the enemies, their child to die and you wonder the kind of cowardly fathers they are. Before they could realize their error, they have already given enemies the momentum to hold strong their child. While some like Ikedife and some politicians are yet to wisen  up, they still rant and mess up while Northern class wisely guard their own that will tomorrow be the leaders and elders. Massacre after massacre and nothing is happening, they have neither taken any move or said notable thing. While the likes of Ekweremadu say little, action should be of elders. When tomorrow I spite on the face of an " Elder" they say disrespect but I wonder what earns respect. I have a reason to raise my thumb for Northern Elders/Governors so I can fully defend my life and enjoin Biafrans to defend our land with me.
