TO NIGER DELTA MILITANTS: THERE IS PRIDE IN THIS WAR AND BIGGER SHAME IN DEFEAT.

TO NIGER DELTA MILITANTS: THERE IS PRIDE IN THIS WAR AND BIGGER SHAME IN DEFEAT.

By Ifeanyi Chijioke

For Family Writers

This is my first time of writing a letter to you warriors, I have not come to fulfill all righteousness but to rightly and logically bring to a definite end that the war you engage is a very sensitive one. This era of pipeline destruction is not like the previous one that has no moral ground, this is a war that will define our region and everything we are. The era of MEND has come and gone, they were fighting for a peanut, demanding money and resource control and when amnesty came, and their peanut was served our inheritance was allowed to go up at our detriment. Today you demand for moral and prestigious things unlike the era hungry men fought for money.
   
Today, a more refined and focused brave men have come out to right some wrongs; I read the demands as listed, I must commend you and there is indeed a value. This war is not about peanut or amnesty or settlement for the thieves to go on stealing our resources that left our land in decay. The demands are king’s demands, an honorable and a noble one, a list not made by hungry men but warriors and men indeed fighting to be free. That list made you men conscious of our state and not men conscious of money. For that list, you have won the heart of the people and we everyday go on our knees that Chiukwuokikeabiama may protect and give you the hand of David.
   
I want to start from where it matters, when our father and brother assumed power as the President of Nigeria, one man said he would make Nigeria ungovernable for him. After this comment, Boko haram came and sustained attack on Jonathan’s government and pulled his government down. They made the promise and gave Islamic state as a condition, such condition that is not fair unlike the fair and just conditions you made. They destroyed Jonathan and their leaders firmly backed them up; they have been hunting Jonathan and still hunting him till date. These people take us for a ride and they believe money can buy every Biafran. You have to prove them wrong this time, there are conditions listed that must be met before the agitation stops. That you must stand on and that is where it ends, I am not positing for all demands but priority ones. If uneducated almajiris’ can set a target and achieve it, then we educated able-bodied men can achieve 200% our goal. The goal today is get it right or we destroy this contraption called Nigeria.
   
Some men have come out from their hiding places, even those fools that never supported our own brother while in Office. As hopeless and shameless as MEND, they call their own corrupt administration without knowing Obasanjo was corrupt, Yaradua was corrupt, Babangida was corrupt, Buhari was corrupt and still corrupt. They are glutton, either seeking favor or seeking for money. Those that call themselves elders have also come in to say review the amnesty program, men that never put pride before money. You must significantly abhor such men and people that do not know there is pride in being a militant of today. Amnesty or no amnesty, you are not hungry men but noble men that want justice and what a shame demands are not met and warriors were mentally or physically defeated. Don’t bother about Joe Igbokwe, I will literary kill that man personally, he is a hermit, living in Lagos and so want our inheritance to go Lagos where he has a significant share. He won’t eat this time around, he would soon beg when no oil will flow up there. They said Lagos is now oil producing state, don’t worry, I will tell you more in my next column on that. Why cry instead of drill the so-called oil in Lagos state and leave our land?
   
This war represents the strength of our people, it is more than a war to our people, if what you demanded cannot be met, it means we have no strength, dignity or pride as a people. While they are calling for negotiation, while toothless MEND is ranting and while shameless saboteurs are blabbing, you must sustain this war until demands are met. What negotiation are they asking for when list of demand is very open; they should start acting on the list and shun any negotiation whatsoever. There is pride in this war and there is bigger shame if you retreat or get defeated. I am very much convinced they cannot defeat you and I have boasted as much. Each and every day we boast with bloodless you as they boast with bloodletting Boko haram. Did they not stage Chibok kidnap and promoted BRINGBACKOURGIRLS simply to destroy our brother? We won’t stage any kidnap, we won’t destroy lives but we will keep destroying Nigeria until justice is done. Why did you choose ‘AVENGERS’ you are indeed avenging every little thing they did and as just men, the list of demand has monopoly of justice and this is why the world is saying listen to them because they know you have a case on that demand list and your names shall go down in history and forever be celebrated if your demands pass.
   
Everywhere on the social media, Almajiris and others boast and say “we will crush una Niger Delta militants” and we respond “we are formidable and cannot be defeated or retreat” though this is a social media rant or trivial thing but it matters so much to us. You are warriors and if your simple demand cannot be met, what is the reason coming out in the first place? You stole our heart and gave us a thing to be proud of, that gift of pride is ‘avengers’.
   
You have not killed and you have not kidnapped, we are expecting human casualties very soon, if they take a Biafran life there, endeavor to take two Nigerian lives or two foreign lives Nigeria will account for. The ‘zoo’ must fall and it is already crumbling, you are not in this battle alone and you will never walk alone, until Nnamdi Kanu is released, let this war be sustained, if for nothing, let integrity and pride be considered that we may die for what we believe in.
   
Finally, Buhari emerged as a result of the war he executed with Boko haram and suddenly Boko haram is retreating. Their job is done and Shakua has disappeared, they labeled Jonathan clueless because he could not stop their Boko haram and Buhari will be indeed clueless because he cannot stop militants. while they are still chasing Jonathan to kill or imprison him, if we can teach them lesson with this very one, they will definitely learn to respect our people like they respect Obasanjo, Tinibu, Sheriff, Atiku, Dangoto they monopolized and all Northern thieves that cannot be touched.
   
They are chasing Alison Madueke, they are chasing Okonjo Iweala, they are after Jonathan and they killed Alamesieagha. They are after Biafrans, they have imprisoned Nnamdi Kanu, Ibori and ready to do more. If we succeed today on this mission, they will simply learn to fear and respect our people. You have not only freed one man, you have freed the entire Biafra land. So this is not a war for review of amnesty but a prestigious war for our soul. This is why everything must be abandoned for the goal you have set for yourselves.

  1. Very good piece. I personally support 200% and more, the Freedom fighters, our brothers. May Chukwu Okike Abiama protect and strengthen all of you. Don't fear, for He the Lord stands always by you.

  2. That's exactly the symptom that plagues all Nigerians. The corrupt politicians are motivated by pride also. Pride is not sufficient to give them wisdom in attaining their goal. That pride is foolish as it has caused them to take wrong action by engaging the military when they could have negotiated.
    Besides pride, there is a spirit of rebellion at work. Sometimes people that are scoundrels like to engage in disruptive actions to dominate. They can throw their support for this just cause but misdirected it! People must use discernment about what they are doing. The fact remains that these actions are just escalating to civil war and calamity, which was unnecessary from the beginning if intelligent strategy was used.
