ATTACK ON IKE IKWEREMADU AND THE GRUESOME MURDER OF CATHOLIC PRIEST PAUL OFFU

ATTACK ON IKE IKWEREMADU AND THE GRUESOME MURDER OF CATHOLIC PRIEST PAUL OFFU

The media space including that of the print and electronic, went wild with the news concerning Senator Ike Ekweremadu's attack in Nuremberg, Germany. The questions then are: is it because it is Ekweremadu, a politician, a Senator or because the attack took place in Germany?

One wonders therefore the level of hypocrisy so far exhibited through the condemnation of the attack by some individuals in Nigeria while at the same time, keeping criminal silence over the gruesome killing of Reverend Father Paul Offu of Enugu Diocese. The deceased Catholic Priest in his article titled: "HE IS A THIEF", asked, why are those stealing from government treasury the most popular in Nigeria? Why do Nigerians carry out jungle justice against petty thieves that steal mere foodstuff because of starvation but drum up support for both the political and judicial rogues who made hunger in Nigeria, statecraft? Why are young ladies stripped off naked for stealing bra and undies to cover their nakedness while at the same time, glamorising the wives of rogues who persistently loot public treasury? Why do people place curses on hungry individuals who steal tithes/offerings from the temple and yet decorate political robbers with titles of profanity? Why does the Nigerian government want the citizens to be law abiding while the roads within the South-East and South-South regions remain unmotorable? Why do Nigerians fight dirty to protect their oppressors and drown justice/freedom voices that call on government to carry out it's constitutional responsibilities? Why is it that a Judge can sentence a man that steals a goat to 21 years imprisonment and discharges/swears in the one who stole people's mandate to ascend to political office on demented reasons of technicalities?

Just in case you may have forgotten, it is important to bring this reminder here, that Reverend Father Clement Ugwu was kidnapped and murdered by Fulani killer herdsmen (terrorists) who are parading as cattle herders. This took place on 14th March 2019, in his parish at St. Mark's Catholic Church, Obinofia - Ndiumo in Ezeagu local government area of Enugu State. Four months later, Reverend Father Paul Offu got murdered by the same Fulani Islamic marauders along Ihe-Agbudu road, in Awgu local government area of same Enugu State. And barely three days after Reverend Father Paul Offu was assassinated, a traditional ruler, His Royal Majesty (HRM) Igwe Sunday Orji and his wife from Obom-Agbogugu, were equally kidnapped by the same Islamists. Two weeks, Reverend Father Paul Offu's killing went public while another Catholic Priest from Enugu Diocese, Reverend Father Chimezie Ani was attacked. He was fortunate enough to have escaped that Fulani orchestrated enterprise by the finger of God. This took place along Ugwuoma road, close to Caritas University in Nike. The Fulani herdsmen were said to have been chasing another vehicle when Reverend Father Chimezie Ani arrived the scene, with his vehicle and windscreen totally shattered by gun bullets.

The above accounts were presicely recorded to show the world, all that successively transpired in Enugu State recently where Senator Ike Ekweremadu himself hails from. It takes online research work via the internet to ascertain if really there exists any press statement made by Senator Ike Ekweremadu, condemning the dastardly act of Fulani vampires. Unfortunately not even one of such could be found. Professor (Senator) Ike Ekweremadu is an Igbo Biafran from Enugu State. He served as the Nigerian Deputy Senate President for eight good years and has equally served in the upper legislative chamber for a total number of nineteen uninterrupted years. Upon all these, there is absolutely no tangible or commensurate project or security recorded even in his own State. His home state happens to be one of the states prone to a cacophony of insecurity across Biafraland.

All those that are presently ranting against the attack of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) should better go for mental reset. Can it be said that the attack targeted against the legislator stands more inhuman than the gruesome killings of Reverend Fathers Paul Offu and Clement Ugwu or that of the kidnap of HRH Igwe Sunday Orji? We should never allow hatred and strong aversion to becloud our sense of judgement. Of what advantage really has Ekweremadu's emergence from the South-East been to the people since his political career? His attack should therefore stand as a definitive lesson to other politicians of Igbo extraction particularly, who think that being disconnected from people and otherwise after elections, is the right way to go. The brief action carried out by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) based in Germany, serves as an introduction of what will soon befall all these self-serving political merchants. It is a sign of an imminent revolution.

Thievery, corruption, unaccoutability, amongst other vices are abhorable in our society but it is also interesting to note that these have become relative indices in Nigeria. It points to the fact that the country is absolutely nowhere close to covering a remarkable destination. The destructive mudslinging amongst Nigerians on the media reveals the pathetic situation  of the people whose women are relentlessly being subjected to rape and men murdered. They have rather chosen to both gratify and remain subservient to their slavemasters.

The truth is that God is no respecter of persons and can only bless those who are srand firmly on the side of truth regardless of the consequences.
