NIGERIA: A CONTRAPTION WHERE PEACEFUL PROTEST MEANS AN ACT OF TREASON

NIGERIA: A CONTRAPTION WHERE PEACEFUL PROTEST MEANS AN ACT OF TREASON

Police hurriedly evacuating protesters shot dead by Nigerian police

That international searchlights are not currently shining on Nigeria  to witness the atrocities being committed by Buhari's government and the cabal running the affairs of Aso Rock is very worrisome. From Hong Kong to Libya, international media are there bringing minute to minute report on what is going on. Why is the case of Nigeria different? Why the dreadful silence? Maybe, that will be a discussion for another day.

Nigeria as a country has made herself a prison yard to many ethnic groups trapped inside it. The government of Nigeria have become a terror group unto the citizens. Freedom of speech has been outlawed. The government disobey court orders at will. They are so bigoted that they only give appointment to their own tribes men and religious group. As it stands, the Chief Justice, Army Chief, Immigration Chief, NNPC, DSS, SSS, Air Force and the Police Force are all headed by northerners or Muslims. The case of the Chief justice is worse. The President had to resurrect a Sharia Judge who didn't even sit for English and Literature in WASC to head the judiciary.


Nigeria have metamorphosed into a contraption where peaceful protest is termed A TERRORIST ACT. It all started when president Buhari ordered the shooting and arrest of IPOB protesters. IPOB family members seeking for referendum in Nigeria and protesting with Biafra flags were gunned down by Nigeria military. Earlier, IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu was imprisoned and the government refused to obey Court orders over his immediate release. Operation Python Dance was declared, Nnamdi Kanu's residence attacked and scores of IPOB family members gunned down, arrested and imprisoned. If you are in doubt, please consult Amnesty International. They have a detailed report of the gruesome massacre of IPOB members by Buhari's administration. We still hope he is taken up by the international community to answer for his uncountable crimes against humanity.
In a swift but funny move, the Nigeria government who murdered IPOB members for peacefully protesting declared them a terrorist group. IPOB have not killed a soul or destroyed anybody's property. They are just indigenous people demanding for their universally recognized human right. Right to self determination.


Nigerians again witnessed another madness from the government when they also declared Shiite Muslims a terrorist group. Their crimes is that they are protesting and demanding that President Buhari and the cabals surrounding him respect court orders, which  have already asked the Federal government to quickly release their leader, Ibrahim El Zakzaky, pay him 50million Naira damages and build a House either in Zaria, Kaduna state or any other northern state of his choice.
The Federal government who refused to obey numerous court orders, instead killed Shiite Muslim peaceful protesters and declared them a terrorist group.

It is now a statement of fact that Nigeria is a contraption whereby peaceful protest means an act of terrorism.

The resent clamp down on #RevolutionNow peaceful protesters and the illegal arrest of their leader seals it up. Nigeria is a terrorist state whose constitution aides and abets terrorism.

It is now certain that Nigeria is no more habitable for humans to live. The marriage enacted in 1914, where Lord Lugard married Southern and Northern Protectorates into one country is no longer practicable. Of what use will it be that the International Community will in the bid to keep an unworkable entity called Nigeria as one, allow the different people trapped in Nigeria to slip into chaos and war. Isn't it best for a referendum to be conducted and the people allowed to choose where they want to belong? Haven't the world seen enough of war on 1967/70, or do they need another war?
Biafrans and all oppressed people in Nigeria must continue to confront the tyranny of the Nigeria government who promote radical Islam and terrorism, hence won't be blamed should something that could have been settled with a mere referendum goes into an all out war.
