Before 'Aso Rock Down' becomes a hit movie in Nigeria

03 September 2014, 12:19 Andy Dickson

In the face of growing threat to the existence of its people, nation and race, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had called on his compatriots to be united in the "mission to strike at the terrorist organization and restore quiet".

His country, Israel had been under attack from a neighboring terrorist group HAMAS hiding in Gaza to fire hundreds of rockets at Israeli civilians. Israel's response had been emphatic, attempting to protect its citizens by activating its missile defense systems and then launching its own offensives at Hamas who quite cowardly chose to hide under civillian settlements prompting human rights group to condemn Israel for attacking vulnerable civillians.

Again, the Prime Minister was quick to assert that no other country lives under such threat, and no country would accept such a threat.

Well well, Mr. Prime Minister didn't know my country Nigeria is living under a bigger threat and perhaps accepting or appearing to do so with an enemy from within...Boko Haram.

While this writeup is not to overly dwell on Israel-Hamas war, it is to remind my compatriots Nigerians that we have blood on our hands.

That Boko Haram can ransack a community, chase away all known government institutions and constituted authorities unchallenged, calls for an extremely serious action from government and the governed.

Terrorism is now part of the scourge of human existence.

Terrorism has come to stay in Nigeria, but what shall we do?

The many years of warped and twisted ideologies in religion, ethnicism and culture has ensured that terrorism is now being used as a willing weapon to capture political and economic power in addition to religious dominance.

Meanwhile as the offensives and counter offensives by the government and the opposition on who's sponsoring the terrorist group continue, aiming to score inconsequential and perhaps non-existent political points, the media are having a field day acting the referee on who's scoring the points depending on the severity of their claims and counter claims, a shocker awaits.

The government may perhaps not be treating this scourge with kid gloves, but it needs to redouble, triple or even quadruple its efforts.

Just in case the government and the political class think they're safe in their bomb proof cars, maybe they should treat Boko Haram as a threat to their personal lives for 'intelligence reports' on has it that Boko Haram is set to go 'ballistic'....missiles and rockets.

Their female recruiting suicide bombing strategy having been uncovered, they're perfecting plans and strategies to unleash mayhem in a dimension never before seen in Nigeria...Missiles and Rockets are coming.

Mr. President Goodluck Jonathan, Boko Haram is not relenting.

No one is safe anymore, not even Aso Rock.

They are coming for you, remember, you said they are in government circles. I hope we never get to see that movie 'ASO ROCK DOWN' for ASO ROCK is their final prize and target.
