Ecclesiastes (KJV) 4:1 So I returned, and considered all the
oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were
oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there
was power; but they had no comforter. 2 Wherefore I praised the dead which are
already dead more than the living which are yet alive.
Quran 2:217 Tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter.
The Presidency via its Senior Special Assistant to the
President on Public Affairs, Dr Doyin Okupe said at a Chatham House lecture series
at the Royal institute of International Affairs in London, Thursday, that the
reason the Jonathan government has for 100+ days failed to bring back our girls
was because they did not want them to die in the rescue process as ‘happened
with Russia in 2004 with the Chechnyan hostage crises.’ He appeared to be
delivering messages and thinking he lacks understanding of, tailored by LEVICK.
Doyin further substantiated his position by making reference to the presence of
international allies in Nigeria, as partners in the hesitance and failure. Also
likely LEVICK et al.
LEVICK is a colonial master company that the Nigerian
government is paying $1.2 million to, to script all their media statements for
them and do all their thinking for them ahead of the 2015 elections; hence the
hashtag, #SomeoneTellLEVICK. I did not know whether to direct this urgent
reaction on behalf of the 200 abducted girls, the dying parents and the
Nigerian people at large, to @LEVICK, our government’s new brain, or to
@Malala, the bright 17 year-old young lady who the world now recognizes our
president listens to above the 168 million Nigerians and the opinions of all
global Nigeria observers; also hence the hashtag,
To All Who It May Concern And All Who Do The Thinking For
And On Behalf Of The Nigerian Government
Please bring back our girls immediately, dead or alive. The
girls being raped and oppressed in unthinkable fashion in Sambisa forest are as
good as dead. Their parents are dying one-by-one of the unbearable torture. 11
have died already. Nigeria is ready to begin rehabilitating the girls who make
it and burying the ones who do not. Life and death is neither in your hands,
nor the hands of their abductors but in the Almighty’s hands. Do your job to
secure the nation. Do your job to battle terror. Bring back our girls now, dead
or alive. The international partners are tired of your corrupt and unwilling

It is important to stress, as I informed the Nigerian
President on Wednesday, the Nigerian high commissioner in New York; that
the abduction of these 234 girls is only the latest in a series of abductions
that have spanned the entire 5 years of the Jonathan administration. These men
and women abducted and forced as slave bed-mates and forced soldiers for Boko
Haram, have been abandoned by the Goodluck administration and been with the
terrorists for 5 long, harrowing years. How many more days does this
administration need to contain this threat which did not start 100 days ago?
Culpability: Who is culpable for the lack of a security
response and adequate measures against Boko Haram over the last 5 years? Is it
possible to tackle Boko Haram now and release the 234 girls and all abducted in
the past if those security officials at the top who have been culpable for the
lackadaisical and kid-glove approach to terror over these distressing 5 years
are not brought to justice and held firmly culpable for the deadly failure of
our security as a nation? When will the ministers of defense, the National
Security advisers, the chiefs of the army and Presidency who have ultimately
been responsible for the prevalence of Boko Haram over the 5 years, be held to
Sponsors of terror: We would like to inform the brains of
this government, that it is impossible to free these and all girls and check
the Boko Haram menace, without bringing to book the sponsors of terror who dine
with the President. It is impossible to check a terror organization while
allowing its continued sponsorship. When will the Borno officials and
ex-governor (arrested in Cameroon, freed by intervention of the Jonathan
Presidency) who are implicated in the Abba Moro White-paper report on the
President’s desk, be brought to justice? When will the Vice president of
Nigeria linked to the terror group be suspended and interrogated? When will
Bamanga Tukur, a known solicitor for the group be sacked and brought in for
questioning according to Nigeria’s anti-terror laws? When will Wendell Simlin,
aka, Reno Omokiri, a Boko Haram agent in the Presidency be brought to book?
When will the death of Andrew Azazi, for exposing the sponsors of Boko Haram,
be properly investigated? As long as these are not done, the Nigerian
government is only playing with our intelligence and has no intention to bring
back our girls and address Boko Haram. Can we expect responsible action ahead
of February 2015?
Just this week an elderly Statesman and ex-head of state of
Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari was almost killed by the terror. A Jonathan
critic and vocal Boko Haram condemning Sheikh, Dahiru Bauchi was almost
assassinated. A hundred more of us innocent souls were killed and hundreds
injured and maimed in Kaduna. This adds to the 80,000 killed so far in violence
during the Jonathan administration; to the hundreds of thousands bereaved,
injured and maimed and to the 4 million farmers displaced in the north. Is it
not time for Tyson/Yar’Adua gloves against the terror? Is it not time for a
God-conscious government that has a head to secure life in this nation? This administration
has been directly implicated in supplying Boko Haram weapons.
This is widely
contended in security circles. The military chiefs purposely leave a paltry 25
soldiers to guard barracks’ loaded with sophisticated armory and vehicles, and
Boko Haram is informed to attack, easily coming with just 200 men and seizing
the barracks’ from the few soldiers left with only a handful of rounds to
‘defend themselves’ or die. The latest Damboa attack gave Boko Haram even more
sophisticated weapons; now our military officers are afraid to combat Boko
Haram. Things are getting worse for us and the girls with each passing day.
Civilian patriots, vigilantes and hunters have offered the most practicable and
urgent solution – to participate in the war against Boko Haram; but the
Jonathan administration ignores them (us), deliberately permitting the terror
to continue unabated. We have lost Damboa. There is no power in Maiduguri.
Bridges are being blown up and life will never be the same again, ever in Borno
if we even still keep that state and neighboring states as parts of Nigeria.

Enough of this Genocide! Fight Boko Haram now. Employ a
civilian army now and bring back our girls now or step down!
