Which comes first? Boko Haram or a Northerner?

29 October 2015, 14:13

An article with the above title was written by one Dr Brimah Peregrino whose penchant for lying and preaching hate has been recognized. I had severally sent emails to Dr Brimah hoping that reason can prevail only to be met by a rude shock that a Dr wanted someone killed for owning a radio station which according to him someone called in, to threaten him. In case you did not get the meaning of his message -He wants someone who owns a radio station where another called in, and threatened him,  to be killed for owning the radio station.Note that he is not talking of the person that threatened him.

A little peek at history reveals that Frederick Lugard the British colonial thug that created Nigeria must have encountered similar reasoning from the black Africans he met that caused him to asses Africans thus “The African negro is not naturally cruel, though his own insensibility to pain, and his disregard for life—whether his own or another's—cause him to appear callous to suffering. He sacrifices life freely under the influence of superstition, or in the lust and excitement of battle, or for ceremonial display”.

His mind is far nearer to the animal world than the that of the European or Asiatic, and exhibits something of the animals placidity and want of desire to rise beyond the State he has reached” (Lugard, 1922)

Your article riddled with half truths and barefaced lies all in a bid to demonize Nnamdi Kanu and quench your natural thirst for human blood.

Let me expose the lies in your article in order not to allow you corrupt the minds of the future generation by representing us as animals in your write ups.

In you article you claimed to have checked a whole bunch of actual names and found that same names that say “GEJ till 2019” are now saying “Biafra or death”. You went further to claim to have been listening to Nnamdi kanu for quite a bit as assigned by your organization [ENDS] to monitor terror potency.The last sentence I feel is incomplete as it should have read ---monitor terror potency [in the North] as the North remains the only region producing terrorists  from their pens to their underwear.Your idea about terror potency elsewhere outside the North  is merely wishful thinking as the world knows where to expect terror from and it is based on the ease of inciting you that all imperialist radio stations broadcast in Hausa  from BBC hausa to VOA Hausa and RFI Hausa-the goals are the same.Brainwash and incite Northerners to violence and bloodshed which they do well.

You went further to claim that Radio Biafra re-dedicated itself for instigation of terror against the new government. This claim is not only false but a clear indication that the writer of the article is a mere mischief maker. This is easily buttressed in the fact that radio Biafra had been on since 2012/2013 and criticized Jonathan more than it has done to Buhari from the onset. One simple fact to the effect is Mazi Kanu’s call for the delegates at the confab to withdraw if they cannot mention Biafra is enough testimony on its own. It is on record that as at 2014, Mazi kanu held critical views about Jonathan and your lies against him only suggest mischief more than anything else. The dates in this news site exposes your lie. http://goo.gl/QqX6OU

The writer highlighted who and who Nnamdi Kanu threatened in  Igbo land but if I may ask who made him a ruler and a judge over us? When did the Northerner whose stock in trade is the killing of innocent Igbos become his “Igbo brothers” keeper? It may be important to note that while I may not support all the style and approach of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Dr Peregrino Brimah represents a worse specie of humanity than Kanu.Kanu has only threatened why Dr Brimah also threatened to kill Kanu in an email to me and not only did he suggest that, he went further to say that I should support that he be killed for owning a Radio station where someone could call to threaten him and he would in turn join me to fight for Biafra.

This statement was not only a disappointment on its own but a clear indication that the education Dr Peregrino Brimah may have acquired only scratched the surface.

To better understand the hypocrisy and penchant for lies of this author, you may reference the several threats of bloodshed from the likes of Professor Ango Abdullahi, lawan Kaita among others. It is rather disappointing that Dr Peregrino Brimah left his kith and kin who have been in the Business of slaughtering innocent men women and children for ages to be pointing fingers at people who without the British fraud would have had nothing to do with him.Let us not waste time to highlight the numerous instances of death and bloodshed masterminded by Dr Peregrino Brimah’s brothers as there may not be enough pages to contain them.

Dr Brimah in his apt use of intellectual poison to deceive and hoodwink gullible readers went further to claim that Jonathan and Ihejrika were sponsors of Boko haram. As much as this lie defies both common sense and logic, has anyone forgotten that the North has been a willing servant to the imperialists to slaughter their fellow blacks? You may recall that Frederick Lugard, the British colonial thug who created Nigeria had described black African thus “

...the virtues and defects of this race-type are those of attractive children, whose confidence when it is won is given ungrudgingly as to an older and wiser superior and without envy” Based on this statement, the British had used a mixture of “make belief pity” to get the confidence of the North to trust them and has used same to destroy the North and pillage Nigeria for oil. This explains why the North has remained supposedly a wretched friend of a wealthy British who has nothing to show for the friendship other than poverty, sickness and disease while the British steals the oil.

This would explain the reason most Northerners would believe anything the white man says even if it defies both logic and common sense. Does this writer want to tell us that the same man Northerners threatened to drag to the criminal court in the Hague is the same that is sponsoring the Boko Haram fighters? What better way for Dr Brimah to suggest that his siblings lack any brains of their own that the same man that is killing them is their sponsor?

Compare Dr Brimah’s assessment of his kith and kin as lacking in common sense with what Fredrick Lugard said about blacks “...the virtues and defects of this race-type are those of attractive children, whose confidence when it is won is given ungrudgingly as to an older and wiser superior and without envy”

One shameful part of Dr Brimah’s claims and the “quality” of his lies is that it is on record that the current President once said an attack on Boko Haram is an attack on the North. How possible then that someone who is defending the Boko Haram bombers does not sponsor them and it is now those that were trying to protect lives and properties?

As unfortunate as Dr Brimah’s lies are, it may be incumbent on all of us to educate Dr Brimah that separation from Nigeria or agitation for separation is nothing but the very right thing to do in the face of mutual suspicion and difference in values.

The most shameful part of Dr Brimah’s post is his argument about what he referred  to as pogrom of the North which would suggest that the current bombing still going on under Buhari are welcome?

It is important to remind Dr Brimah that the North as a region has never contributed anything positive to the development of Nigeria. If we examine it historically, prior to independence, the North sided with the imperialist Britain to truncate the match to independence. Barely  six years after independence, the Nzeogwu misadventure happened which also exposes the lies that the likes of Dr Brimah are known for. Think about it, Dr Brimah believed that Jonathan was Igbo simply because Mazi Kanu said so, the same Dr Brimah feigns ignorance of the freedom of speech clause enshrined in the constitution and does not believe that Mazi Kanu wanted Biafra before Goodluck.  It may be interesting to note that the same Dr Brimah who is accusing Jonathan of genocide in his article titled Gwoza Recapture President Jonathan guilty of Genocide seems to have forgotten that the same bombs he was accusing Jonathan of throwing are still being thrown under the present administration.

Dr Brimah has also refused to tell the world if it was Ihejrika or Jonathan that are the parents of the girl captured below and the story of how her parent sent her?


The above failed suicide bomber was sent by Dr Brimah’s siblings whose best contribution to Nigeria are violence and bloodshed and yet he is busy pointing at other people whose sole intention is to lift his region from poverty.

Dr Brimah is quick to accuse a President who made efforts to stop the carnage while Northern elders kept quiet or criticized any approach he adopted but has forgotten that the North unleashed the worst pogrom on innocent civilians who had no business with the military.

The north in its traditional servitude to the British had sided with them to slaughter Biafrans in the sixties. It may be important to remind Dr Brimah that the Nigerian- Biafran war was merely a British was fought against a Biafra for trying to undo what the British did because they think they are God to black people. It will be the height of delusion to think that the North or Nigeria fought the war barely six years after independence when the British provided

  1. The Algerian/Egyptian terrorist pilots

  2. Enforced an air, land and sea blockade of Biafra

  3. Supplied the weapons with which the war was prosecuted

  4. Provided mercenaries and training

  5. Implemented the starvation of women and children

If then the British did all these, what did the North do? They only provided a reason and the support the slave master needed to deal with a recaptured slave of Biafra trying to secede.Thankfully, as Dr Brimah makes a mockery of his education and his ability to reason rationally by suggesting that the same Bombs sounding under Buhari are sponsored by Ihejrika and Jonathan but forgets to realize that the same guns and bullets his people used to slaughter innocent men, women and children that did nothing to them other than being born as Biafrans they have turned on themselves.

In conclusion, Dr Brimah is deep into the abyss of hatred and bitterness and in such a state lacks the capacity to reason properly. This is clearly exposed by a suggestion that two Christians with no known history of terrorism or violence could have sponsored thousands of muslims who even at some point said if Buhari spoke to them, they would listen but he declined.

Dr Brimah must stop this idea of misinforming people as the damage being done might explode later.
