We are still pretending that Khalid
al-Barnawi and the several Shekau's acted independently.
A year of the war against Boko Haram by
the new Buhari administration, we have not yet arrested a single sponsor of
Boko Haram, nor named one, local or foreign.
We are addressing Boko Haram at the
tactical level and have pretended that it was not strategically coordinated,
organized and sponsored.
While Nigeria has committed efforts to
the conviction of Olisa Metuh and Saraki, we have not yet tried a single Army
chief, ex President, former Minister of Defense, top Army commanders and
Procurement officers or former National Security Adviser for aiding and
abetting Boko Haram and abdicating their sworn duties to protect life of
Nigerians and directly and indirectly sponsoring Boko Haram terror.
We are pretending that Boko Haram
existed in a vacuum.
While we investigate all the links and
connections of corruption especially of the opponents of 'change,' we are yet
to publicly disclose a single investigation into the links and connections of
We are yet to drill the current governor
of Borno state on his admission of knowing and not divulging the sponsors of
Boko Haram when he twice publicly said that "leadership calls for
restraint; if I divulge, heads will roll."
We embrace and positively appraise the
likes of former PDP chairman, Bamanga Tukur who on record publicly admitted to
knowing the reason for Boko Haram and justified and helped the terror agency
get recruits with the words, "Boko Haram is fighting for justice, Boko
Haram is another name for justice."
We are entertaining people who have
worked as couriers for Boko Haram and helped the organization's political wing
put through its demands; people like APC Majority leader Senator Ali Ndume and
former Vice President Namadina Sambo along with the former Attorney general,
Mohammed Adoke, the later duo who our security department claimed to be
investigating by the use of "state
craft," whatever that means.
We are yet to identify the links to
foreign states where Boko Haram is organized. We have not explored the reasons
why Boko Haram always comfortably stages its negotiations from the kingdom of
Saudi Arabia. We have not asked
Saudi Arabia to produce the group's Secretary general, Danladi Ahmadu.
We have not investigated who sent Abu Mahjin (Terrorist
Identities Datamart Environment, TIDE number 24350378), the Chadian to
Nigeria in 2009 to organize Boko Haram.
The truth is that it is the same
sponsors of Boko Haram who constructed the evil for Nigeria and plotted
our total destruction, that are the sponsors of the Niger Delta Avengers and
other new groups springing forth in the Niger Delta that all
"peculiarly" ask for the release of Sokoto Prince, Sambo Dasuki who
all Nigerians rich and poor, north and south, hate.
It is the same people who hate Nigeria
and particularly hate the Kanuri farmer and plotted the destruction of the
northeast and wiping out of all Kanuri farmlands to destroy not just the
historic Kanem empire but farming and self sufficiency in Nigeria as a whole,
that are sponsoring the Niger Delta Avengers again.
We have aided and abetted the rise of
new terror in Nigeria by abdicating our duties to determine those behind the
attack on the Kanem empire and the attack on the farmers of the northeast and
by so doing, we have enabled the same enemies of humanity and sponsors of
terror and their paid soldiers to operate from different parts of
Nigeria, causing the masses more economic hardship with the destruction of our oil
infrastructure as they destroyed Kanuri farming.
It is the same greedy, hoarding elite
who manipulate the system in their favor and against the masses and machinate
to impose tariffs, price hikes, taxes and multiple ponzi-like hardship on the
masses while securing tax breaks, duty waivers for themselves; and who predate
the masses for their land to build their industry, that sponsor Boko Haram in
the north east and the Niger Delta avengers in the south, to stoke tensions
that divide and distract people from the oligopolist oppression that is making
them poor as the politicians and cabal become richer and richer and renowned
We call on the Nigerian authorities and
security departments to rise up to their responsibilities, stop their selective
oppression and injustice of the weak and minorities who they prefer to be
dependent on government handouts; and indict and arrest the political, local
and foreign, elite, cabal, politicians and other protected sponsors of Boko
Haram and the Niger Delta Avengers. Or as we predicted long ago, more and more
terror will spring forth.
As you will go for a forcefully
conscripted Bama boy Boko Haram foot soldier, so also go for their highly
placed political sponsors.
