Boko Haram Continues to Ridicule The Nigerian Army

AdeolaAderounmu

On October 12 2013 the Nigerian Army through one Commander of the 3 Division Special Operation Battalion Damaturu, Colonel A.O. Abdullahi said that his command will not give Boko Haram the opportunity of invading the state again.

But on the 20th of October 2013 Boko Haram murdered 19 people in Borno. They dressed-up as officers of the Nigerian Army and murdered their victims.

This is not the first, second or third time Boko Haram has done some killings just to ridicule the Nigerian government.

I can’t remember exactly when but even Mr. Goodluck Jonathan boasted once that Boko Haram will be gone in a certain month of “June”. I think it was after that they Boko Haram bombed the UN office in Abuja.

It was after his boasting that the Jonathan government started marking events amidst tight security or low key because of the fear of attacks of Boko Haram.

It does not matter what the Nigerian military has done or is doing, what is constant is that Boko Haram rules in Borno and they do what they like and how they like.

I don’t think there are schools in operation anymore in Borno. Boko Haram is ensuring that schools are burnt or students and teachers are killed.

Borno state is both a dilemma, and a source of national embarassment to the Nigerian government. Under a state of emergency, Boko Haram remains potent and deadly.

Some police officers from Eastern Nigeria are currently protesting deployment to Borno State. That is the height of ridicule that Boko Haram has brought the Nigerian Army and the clueless Jonathan administration.

Where does this madness lead Nigeria to?

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.

Northern Nigeria, A Prologue to War

By Adeola Aderounmu

Kaduna was up in flames yesterday and many innocent people have lost their lives. Families are once again left to mourn the untimely death of their loved ones. A pregnant woman was among the dead.

What is going on in Northern Nigeria is a prologue to war. It’s not so hard to see that the North will soon be separated from the South. It is a function of time, and things will fall in place, or apart.

It is so sad when the rulers Like Jonathan and co who could facilitate the dialogue to break up this country continue to keep it as one because of their blind faith and corrupt-minded dispositions.

What do we gain by the prevetable bombings and murders of innocent people? What has happened in Northern Nigeria in recent months is even worse than what led to the Biafran War, yet we are all quiet.

The blood of the innocent are shed daily and in various ways, not least from the tragedy of maladministration.

Peaceful regional recognition and break-ups are still possible and negotiable now. At the rate Northern Nigeria is going, the time will come when violent changes across board will be inevitable. Soon..!

War Brewing in West Africa

By Adeola Aderounmu

Abidjan
In Ivory Coast war is brewing. The two presidents are not yielding grounds. There have been reports of violence, attacks and deaths in Ivory Coast.

I am not an expert on Ivory Coast but I’m not impressed with the experiment that the International community will be carrying out in Ivory Coast if a war breaks out. They will be selling weapons to both sides of the conflicts and my brothers and sisters will be killing one another.

Africa, I beg you. Learn from your past mistakes, lay down your arms and talk some sense.

It doesn’t make sense for two brothers to go to war while a foreigner doubles as both the umpire and the coach.

Wake up Ivory Coast. Where is Drogba and the boys. Go to Ivory Coast now and stop the war. You can do this by negotiation and intervention. Do it anyway you like.

Jos: War can become full blown..!

The recent images of Jos that I saw show that the state may be on the brink of a full scale religious war.

The people of Jos do not trust one another anymore and the situation has seriously deteriorated. Nigerian media houses are not doing enough to report the current situation and the nature of the problems-the complex religious-political volatile mix.

The war is almost certainly going to continue because of the elections coming up this year.

I don’t see how the governor of Plateau state-one clown called Jang-can prevent the forthcoming devastations.

It is a known fact that the military men that are supposed to see to the peace of Jos have been involved in the killing of the citizens of Jos.

Instead of dealing with the war that can eventually destroy the entity called Nigeria, the useless PDP in Nigeria is busy holding primary convention in Abuja.

On several occasions I have mentioned that Jonathan needs to go to Jos and spend 2 weeks or more to dwell among the people of Jos. The solution must be found and for all time.

The war in Jos is still on a small scale. The governor has failed and the Nigerian authorities are treating the war like violence or uprisings. This is a very serious mistake.

A wise man holds the fish by the head.

CONGO; Foolish and Senseless..!

By Adeola Aderounmu.

Everyone knows that it is easier to prevent the war than to stop it. But what the world leaders are always doing is to stop the war and NEVER to prevent it. There must be wicked reasons for that. That’s why the wars keep coming back

The African continent would like to be projected in a good image. But how many good things are we radiating from within Africa. Agreed again that there are many useless conflicts and wars going on around the world… the Middle East is troubled no doubts. There is war in Iraq and there is war in Afghanistan and so on.

No war is good and no war is desirable. But when Africa countries start their own conflicts and wars, the human toll is always immeasurable. Rape, looting, senseless killings, child soldiers, child abuse, beheading, mutilating, tongue cutting, genocide and several other vices that cannot be described have been perpetrated endlessly in the last 2 decades in Africa. In Sierra Leone, in Liberia, in Congo, in Rwanda, Angola….

Even in countries where there are no wars, the internal conflicts and tensions have resulted in the deaths of civilians in no small measure. Take the case of Nigerian under Obasanjo, Zimbabwe under Mugabe and Kenya under Kibaki as examples.

Congo is at it again. This is a country that may have lost over 5 million souls to war in the last decade. More than 250 000 are presently displaced. Children are suffering and dying. Pregnant women are undergoing the greatest trauma of their lives. Hunger pervades the land; suffering has become a way of life. No hope in sight!

Those idiots, the rebels and the governments are at it again. The craziest thing is that the minerals and the resources that should unite these morons is what they or someone is using against them. Congo like many other African countries is blessed and endowed with resources including Gold. Sometimes, I cannot stop thinking that the level of intelligence of these war lords and their corrupt government is below zero.

The negativity of their minds and their intelligence is what has denied Africa the true greatness she deserved. All the western news agencies are having a swell time showing the rot and stupidity going on in Congo. This is definitely the type of news that they love to show case. War, hunger, conflicts and madness especially from Africa.

What they are not showing or telling however is the countries and the international conspirators who are fuelling this war in Congo. Which countries are supplying arms to the rebels? Which countries or organizations are supplying arms to the government of Congo? Which countries and which organization are buying the resources that the rebels are using to finance this crazy war that has killed several children and women? Computer software and mobile phone companies and their major/minor suppliers should be investigated and they should be named. They must stop buying blood resources. The blood is from children and women and helpless men.

It will be nice if CNN, BBC and Skynews can lead the pack to expose the evil machineries behind the escalating war in Congo. They should extend the investigation to Darfur and other places. Obviously they will not do that. It gives them pleasure to report bad news, so there is no point seeking the end of bad news from Africa. Oh, what a failed continent!

How easy for the United Kingdom to arrive in Congo the other week. What pretense is behind the interest of UK, US and other European infiltrators? The international community should stop deceiving themselves. Who are the beneficiaries of the ongoing wars in Africa? They should be exposed if only to save the dying children.

To show how unserious the UN is about this situation, they are sending Obasanjo from Nigeria to mediate in the war. What signals are they sending to the rebels and the rest of the world? It is people like Obasanjo who are destroying democratic structures in Africa and the way to reward or recognize a man destroying democracy is to send him to a country in dire need of proper democracy? The UN must be a scandalous organization! Nonsense!

What is Obasanjo going to preach in Congo? How he rigged election 3 times in a row in 9 years of failed governance? How he advised Odinga to accept a government of National Unity in Kenya after innocent people have been slaughtered at the altar of democracy? The UN is not serious at all. I pity those innocent children of Congo; I pity their pregnant women and weak adults. I pity those people who will soon be wiped away by genocidal instinct of the crazy and mad rebels.

One thing I know for certain, the rest of the world takes pleasure to see Africa suffers and they begin to send aid, soldiers and peace keepers. As stated, this favours some people and countries-they get richer and they make deals with rebels and governments and then they rule by neo-colonialism. The intelligence of the African leader is always in question. The sell out continues.

Everyone knows that it is easier to prevent the war than to stop it. But what the world leaders are always doing is to stop the war and NEVER to prevent it. There must be wicked reasons for that. That’s why the wars keep coming back

Congo, what a way to go…. It’s a crazy world indeed
