IGP Usman Baba Alkali's Statement And The Perceived Hatred For Biafra

The Nigerian Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, stated that policemen should not wait for an order before they shoot any Biafran. He clearly ordered; “Do not mind the media shout; do the job I command you. If anyone accuses you of human rights violation, the report will come to my table and you know what I will do. So, take the battle to them wherever they are and kill them all. Do not wait for an order".

How again would one think he supposed to have said it if not what we just read? There is certainly no other way he is supposed to have told the world that Biafrans are not part of Nigeria, if not by making this type of statement. No one in his right mindset will tell me that Biafrans are regarded as humans, yet those with correct mental reasoning will not order that fellow humans should largely be shot at sight for demanding for their freedom.
Reading from line to line in the IGP's statement, will show you a pure statement of hatred and untamed fanaticism against the people.

“What other order are you waiting for when Mr. President himself, had ordered you to shoot anybody carrying AK-47 rifle? Quote me, even a dead policeman can be tried and dismissed from the force and his family will not get his benefits.
“So, do not sit and wait for them to come; take attack to them and do not lose your arms to criminals,” the acting IGP said further ordered.

I have not even seen or heard the same statement made to the Boko Haram terrorists which the whole world has known to be the second world most deadly terrorist group or even to the Fulani Herdsmen which are causing great havoc around the country. This statement by the Inspector-General of Police, is irresponsible, reckless and insensitive. It shows willful ignorance and malicious intent. In a sane clime, he should be out of job. This is totally unacceptable in a democracy and in a fractured country like Nigeria, with it's ethnic dynamics. But here, we have some people that are celebrating him for his reckless and undemocratic statements. When this type of statements could come from a man who supposedly knows the laws and it's dictates in a democratic setting as we claim Nigeria is, it shows the mentality of the Fulani leaders of Nigeria. Then, tell me how deteriorated the reasoning of those other ordinary Fulani herdsman being armed with AK-47, will be.
