At the time when Benue State is burning, with the Fulani people killing Tiv indigenes in their own land, the Nigerian military under the authority of a Fulani President Muhammadu Buhari and a Fulani Chief of Army Staff Lt. General Tukur Buratai have declared they will be sending military personnel to South- South and South- East for Operation Crocodile Smile III and Operation Python Dance III, respectively.
The South South and South East that are so peaceful, that are not at war with any group needs soldiers, but not Benue state that has recorded series of Fulanis’ attacks and the accompanying deaths of innocent civilians. It took the killing of seven (7) Fulani men for the federal government to detail truck loads of the Nigerian soldiers to Benue state. When the Fulani invaded Benue state killing more than 70 people including women and children, the federal government took no action to stop the marauding killer squad, but the same government called it internal communal clashes between farmers and cow herders and as such does not require military intervention. Today the military has been unleashed on Benue state to kill indigenes and to aid the Fulani murderers.
Recall that the Nigerian government during operation Python Dance II in September (2017) last year, unleashed the Nigerian military that indiscriminately killed dozens of Biafran youths in Aba and Umuahia. They also invaded Royal Palace of HRH, Igwe Israel Okwu Kanu, who incidentally is the father of the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, killing more than 28 promising Biafran youths and a pet dog. Since after that atrocious crime, followed by the illicit and unlawful proscription of the activities of IPOB, South- East and South- South have remained peaceful in the face of persecution. No reprisals and no killing of anybody. All the efforts made by the Nigerian military to provoke the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) into picking up arms in retaliation failed woefully, yet, they are preparing to send in another set of military operations to South- East and South- South, Imagine!
It pains me that upon all these injustices staring us all in the face, some misguided elements still shout “One Nigeria”. So disgusting really.
Even some hypocritical lots, living abroad in another man’s land, shamelessly enjoying good infrastructure, good and affordable healthcare, good government policies aimed at alleviating poverty and assures good and healthy living, they enjoy quality judicial system where the hope of a common man is certainly protected and human rights of every individual is respected without violation, are also applauding the government on such beastly act. How many times have you heard that a team of military personnel, beat a man to death in America simply because he is wearing a military camouflage? Which nation unleashes the Police, Military, Immigration and Custom on a particular region and order them to be extorting money and other valuables from people that traveled miles to clear their goods only to be harassed by those that are supposed to be protecting them, in their own backyard. You cleared your goods in Lagos, and Custom officials that are littered everywhere will be extorting money from you and in most cases will hold you for hours for the same goods that were cleared by their own officials at the port. You will see them everywhere on the road from Lagos to South-East region and the worst is that same way the custom officials litter on the roads is same way their counterparts in Military, Police and even Roadsafty corps are littered, doing same thing. They do this to make sure people are forced out of South- South and South- East to other states and more especially abroad for greener pastures. What a useless country Nigeria is!
All these abnormalities does not perturb you. You supported this government because you needed to be loved by the Fulanis. You know that Fulani favours only those sycophantic Igbos who through their words and write ups denigrate their own people. You love “one Nigeria” because you are gaining materially today. Moreover, corruption puts a lot of money in your hands, that is why you always keep quiet as the Nigerian military kill innocent unarmed civilians.
Now they are coming back again to finish what they left in South- East and South- South. Just get ready for the worst. It is no longer time to blame Mazi Nnamdi Kanu again because your political mafias masquerading as your representatives, who you are vigorously campaigning for and supporting have been stamped and shredded by their slave masters up North, hence they have all become toothless Bulldogs. They are so shameless that they easily become weak and vulnerable when it has to do with their Northern counterparts. Hope we have all seen how workable the fraudulent enclave called Nigeria is? Is Nnamdi Kanu no more the reason Nigeria is not working? Is he not the reason the ‘good’ Nigerian military is now gearing up to come back to a peaceful South- East and South- South to kill people once again in disguised operations they will be unleashing? Is this not another opportunity to win the love of the caliphate by joining the Orji Uzo Kalus, Joe Igbokwes and Lauretta Onochies of this world in denigrating and maligning your own people?. Castigating your own people earns you a job and political contract in Nigeria’s Fulani controlled government led by the chief Fulani terrorists, Muhammadu Buhari. Those standing tall and speaking for a stop to injustice against their own people gets nothing other than death and unending court trials. But posterity will judge us all.
Biafra will remember those who fought for her, who defended her dignity but will not also forget betrayers and saboteurs.
This Python Dance III will once again bring tears in the eyes of many? Who exactly are they coming for? They have taken Nnamdi Kanu away and the South-East political elites kept mute as though they are of different world. Even to question the rationale behind the third coming of this Operation Python Dance since the region is not at war with anybody, not even with the Fulani foot-soldiers of the Nigerian government, they have not deem it fit. Who and what actually is the operation aiming at? At least people should be told what the Nigerian military is coming to do in Biafraland, because they are supposed to be at the Nigerian boarders defending her against external aggressors and even in the North East combating Boko Haram or better still be in Benue state protecting the lives and property of hapless indigenes who have abandoned their homes for fear of the Fulani herdsmen killers and are now seeking refuge in Internally Displaced People’s camps (IDPs). They are coming again to the old Eastern region to drink more blood in the festival of blood they called Operations Python Dance III and Crocodile Smile III. But this time around, my instinct is telling me they are coming to fish out writers and intellectuals who have stood for Biafra and are waging media war against the Nigerian media lies and writes in support of the Biafra struggle. I sincerely encourage all those in Biafra media to remain strong, courageous, determined and most importantly watchful and careful. Those that are killing us should also be taught a lesson to know that educated Biafrans are in their millions and are ever ready to write in defense for Biafra.
It is on this note that I’m putting the Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, American President Donald J. Trump, and all the people of good conscience around the globe on notice, over the purported Operation Python Dance III and Operation Crocodile Smile III that would soon be launched in the South-East and South- South respectively, which will invariably enable the Nigerian military to use their recently acquired foreign weapons to kill the people they took an oath to protect, those whose through their taxes they are being paid.
Stand now and speak out against this impending danger.
May God keep us all alive.
