There are many reasons why Biafrans want out of the abominable monstrosity called Nigeria. Apart from the fact that Biafrans have nothing in common with Nigerians; apart from the fact that Nigeria has expired; and apart from the fact that Nigeria is structural defective and cannot work, Biafrans do not want to live with terrorists.
Nigerians are terrorists from birth. To them terrorism is a part of life and they have shown it since Nigeria came to be in 1914. Painfully, Biafrans have been at the receiving end of Nigeria’s terrorism. This was why Biafrans, in 1967, tried to extricate themselves from Nigeria, but the world looked the other way. Rather than stop Nigeria, countries like Britain supported them with arms and ammunitions. Thank God the world has reaped a little of Nigeria’s terrorism.
For instance, the world got a taste of it in December 2009. Umar Abdul Mutallab, a spoilt Fulani youth, was the terrorist. At the youthful age of 24, he was caught pants down about to detonate a bomb to kill 289 Americans in a US bound flight on Christmas Day, December 25, 2009. The Northwest Airlines Flight 253 was about to travel to the US from Amsterdam to Detroit, Michigan.
Abdul Mutallab was a Fulani Nigerian; not Biafran.
Britain got its own direct taste of Nigeria terrorism in 2013, the year Michael Adebolago and Michael Adebowale confirmed themselves as Nigerian terrorists. The two were Nigerians of Yoruba ethnic stock. On the afternoon of May 22, 2013, the duo descended on a British soldier, Lee James Rigby, at the Woolwich, Royal Borough in London, and stabbed him to death in cold blood. After the despicable act, the duo faced television cameras to boast about the murder they had just committed.
Terrorists - they were Yoruba Nigerians and not Biafrans.
August 8, 2015, two Northern youths, Imran Kabeer and Sani Jamiliu, were arrested in India. They were going to join ISIS in their quest to rule the world. They were not Biafrans; they were (and still are) Nigerians. What about those that are not known, or that have not been caught? Sure they are many.
The world should blame themselves because all along it had been happening to Biafrans and they did nothing. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the one that is now the Emir of Kano and formerly Nigerian Central Bank Governor, was the terrorist who killed Gideon Akaluka and told his followers to hang his head on a poll and carry it round the streets of Kano. It was under him that Nigerian Central Bank was used to move funds to Boko Haram.
What about Muhammadu Buhari, the so-called Nigerian President. Who in the world today does not know that he is not only a Fulani and a Northern Muslim, but also a terrorist? It was he who boasted before the 2011 General Election that if he did not win that year’s Presidential election that he would make the country ungovernable. He lost the election, and scores were murdered in Northern Nigeria, even youth corpers, those drafted to the accursed desert lands of the North to lend a hand in trying to salvage their backwardness, were murdered.
Before the 2015 election Buhari boasted again. This time that he would make the monkeys and baboons (his fellow countrymen) soak in their own blood if he did not win. Who did not know that it was many such boasts from him, and his terrorist clan from the North, that frightened Goodluck Jonathan to quickly throw in the towel in the brazenly and highly rigged election? Painfully, he was support by Barrack Obama of United States of America (USA) and David Cameron of United Kingdom (UK), the modern day colonialists and oppressors.
It was under terrorist Buhari that Nigeria granted a radical Muslim cleric, Ahmad al-Assir, visa to visit Nigeria. The terrorist was arrested by Lebanese authorities as he attempted to leave Lebanon for Nigeria via Cairo, at Beirut’s Raffik Hariri International Airport. His arrest was on Saturday, August 15, 2015, and he was travelling with a Palestinian passport and valid Nigerian Visa as Rami Abdul Rahman.
Buhari has never hidden his predilection to terror. It was him who once told bewildered Nigerians that any attack on Boko Haram was anti-North and attack on the North. Buhari, it was who lampooned former President, Goodluck Jonathan, for declaring a state of emergency on the states that Boko Haram was wreaking havoc on. He was also the one that once declared that: “Sharia should be introduced in full across Nigeria …I will continue to show openly and inside of me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping all over Nigeria”.
This illiterate terrorist is a Nigerian. He is not a Biafran.
It is undisputed fact that Buhari and his Northern kinsmen are terrorists, and that they are at home with terrorist from all over the world. During the heydays of Osama Bin Laden, they were the ones that wear Bin Laden’s T-shirts as their hero in Northern Nigerian. When the twin-towers of America were bombed in the USA, they were the ones that celebrated it in Northern Nigerian streets and towns by burning USA flags in public.
Boko Haram, the African number one terrorist group is Hausa/Fulani owned. It is indeed a brainchild of prominent Northerners. Since 1918 when Nigerians started terrorizing Biafrans nobody has ever been jailed for his or her terrorist act, and so Nigeria continues to breed them “terrorist” by the day.
The Northern plot to continue to terrorize other peoples inhabiting the evil contraption called Nigeria, did not start today. As a matter of fact, the modern form of it was started by their political and spiritual leader of the 60s, Ahmadu Bello. He was the one that laid the foundation for the modern Northern terrorist inclination. It was him who once declared that without the North dominating others it would “lead to bloodshed”.
He followed that up with a declaration he made few days after Independence that, “The new nation called Nigeria should be an Estate of our great grandfather Uthman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power. We use the Minorities in the North as willing tools and the south as a conquered territory and never allow them to rule over us and never allow them to have control over their future”.
The declaration was recorded in the Parrot Newspaper of October 12, 1960, 11 days after Nigeria’s flag independence. That is part of the root of Fulani terrorism that has festered over the years. Therefore, let no one be deceived, the terrorists in what is known as Nigeria today are elements from other parts of Nigeria, not from Biafra. They are the ones that have made Nigeria a terrorist state because the levers of power rest in their hands and they benefit from it.
So, a major reason why Biafrans do not want to be part of Nigeria is because they don’t want to live with terrorists.
