A Christmas morning mass in a Catholic Church close to Abuja was turn into a mourning ceremony. Bomb blast rocked the church premises and the death toll may be enormous.
A car bomb was detonated in the parking area.
Nigerians need to tell themselves the truth.
There will be no true peace in that country until all the separate nations are allowed to go their separate ways.
There should be a referendum in 2012 where each region should come forward to demand for their own territory and share of resources.
Nigeria should be divided into different countries. By due dialogue and probable long periods of reasoning and negotiations it should be possible to separate the different nations, with minimal conflicts.
It is necessary because the bombings and suicide bombings that are taking place across Nigeria are taking lives anyway.
So why not do the right thing. Let the terrorists keep part of their north.
Let others keep their regions.
If Boko Haram from the Republic of Maiduguri decides to bomb Oduduwa Republic then we know we have an invitation to war and that will be so clear. Fighting a war to defend ones territory or homeland is not illegal. At that time, we know what to do.
But now that Abuja is being bombed, what can we do. Abuja belongs to everyone especially the looting politicians and it is available for bombing.
But when the regions or countries are well defined, it becomes easy to defend a given territory. Who will fight for Abuja, a no man’s land?
The people killed or affected by this silly Christmas day bombing are probably mostly southerners who could have fared better in their homelands in the South, West and East. There are Christians in the North. A referendum or sovereign national conference will give them a say in where they want to belong to and how they want to be governed.
In case of an attack of this nature, they will be able to defend themselves appropriately. A firm retaliation will be appropriate because no person or region has a monopoly of violence (RIP Ojukwu).
It is imperative that the country called Nigeria be divided because that is a first step in dealing with this war/violence in the future. It is also a solution to resource control and an end to the deceit of colonial combination of Northern and Southern Regions.
I cannot fight for Abuja. It is not my business.
But if these bombs start to blow up in Western Nigeria, it is not impossible that I will be joining the Oduduwa warriors. We will congregate from all over the world. We will take up the war from where our ancestors left them. We will defend Yorubaland with the last drop of our blood.
Western Nigeria-The Yoruba Nations- will not fall again.
