Again, This is War in Nigeria..!

Adeola Aderounmu

Many people are quick to dismiss a state of war in Nigeria. But those who have been killed and those who are related to the slained know that this is a state of war.

In a way, it is a form of war crime. Systematic elimination of a certain race or group is known as genocide. Christians have been targeted especially in Northern Nigeria. On the 6th of August 2012, armed men entered a church in Kogi State Nigeria with the aim of eliminating all the worshippers attending a bible study.

As far as I am concern, this is war crime. The worshippers have done nothing wrong in pursuance of their faith and they were unharmed.

It is now impossible to know exactly how many attacks have been carried out in Northern and Central Nigeria by Boko Haram and the imitators of Boko Haram.

It is easy and convenient to point accusing fingers at Boko Haram because of the declarations that Boko Haram has made in the past. It is convenient because the government of Goodluck Jonathan is simply put, totally useless in every way.

The attack in Kogi State is a wake-up call for Yorubas and occupiers of Western Nigeria. The war is now coming to your doorsteps. It’s seems Boko Haram has no boundary afterall.

I felt agitated this morning and I thought of how I will defend Yorubaland because it is a matter of duty to defend the land that we got from our ancestors. If this means going to war with Northern Nigeria or taking down Boko Haram, then it should be.

The events in Nigeria continue to reveal the stupidity of the nature of the Nigerian government. In a country where one man can steal 500 million dollars and walk free, what kind of moral obligations towards the citizenry do we expect from such occupiers and conquerors of Nigeria?

The present occupiers of Nigeria are either dumb or foolish not to know that the time is now to do something drastic in order to avert the coming war.

I sincerely support that the different regions making up Nigeria should be given their autonomy just the way it was before the 1966 coup and the eventual creation of non-viable states by Gowon and others.

I sincerely look forward to Western Nigerian declaring its own government and the re-instatement of integrity and accountability in our public services.

I am convinced that the people of Eastern Nigerian can lead themselves and work harder to achieve their dreams.

I also know that the Middle-belt and the South South will like to run their lives without listening to some fools or puppet in Abuja.

Independence and self-determination should be sought again by these regions and this step will sure help us to govern ourselves. Then we can start dealing with the problems of corruption, nepotism and ineptitude at that point.

For now, the political war with religious intonation been championed by Boko Haram needs to be crushed at all cost. It takes a good leader and not a useless ruler to achieve this goal.
