NIGERIA POLITICS: Curfew in Southeastern Nigeria After Clashes

NIGERIA POLITICS: Curfew in Southeastern Nigeria After Clashes

The curfew, which will run from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am, was announced by the Abia state governor late on Tuesday, who told residents to remain at home and avoid any form of confrontation with the security forces or military. Abia governor Okezie Ikpeazu suggested the presence of soldiers, who began operations against kidnapping and violent crime across southern Nigeria this week, may be at the root of tensions. He attributed Sunday’s clashes to the start of the crackdown on crime, which is codenamed “Python Dance II”.

“We have also instructed our foreign attorneys to commence immediate action against the federal government at The Hague for aiding and abetting crimes against humanity through their neglect, failure and or refusal to arrest Fulani herdsmen terrorists, an action that has led to numerous loss of innocent lives in genocidal proportions, if Nnamdi Kanu’s rights and those of any Igbo son and daughter continues to be violated by the federal government. Any attempt to re-arrest Nnamdi Kanu without allowing the on-going court processes to run its course would surely spell doom for the nation”, it concluded.

NIGERIA POLITICS: Another Northern Messenger From Hell

Igbo must take a quick and urgent decision on this. Enough should be enough and if Igbo refuse to cage this monster, they should be ready to pay for their complacency. Are we pretending that by denying the truth or feeling that others don’t know the root cause of this madness, we will evade the recompense for Nnamdi Kanu’s crass irresponsibility?

NIGERIA POLITICS: The Subversive Biafran Agitation, Ethnic Responses and The Nigerian Government

The Nigerian constitution makes clear that the unity of Nigeria is indivisible. That said, the constitution allows for changes and provides mechanisms through which changes can be effected. If a tribe within the Nigerian nation state wants out, it must do so within the parameters of the Nigerian constitution. The Federal Government is therefore handling matters very well. The behaviour of the Igbo elite has been disgraceful. They have now fully embraced the racist thug and now self acclaimed supreme leader Nnamdi Kanu.

Any casual listener to Radio Biafra when it was hosted by Kanu can attest to the most repugnant racist slurs and stereo types that were directed at the North and the Yoruba. This climate of hate speech has now been a feature of Igbo internet warriors all over the net.
