THE IGBOS HAVE OHA BUT NO EZES.
The unrelenting cold-blooded killing of unarmed peaceful agitators for Igbo emancipation and justice by armed Nigerian Soldiers and Police has exceeded an actionable level. The Igbos are definitely correct to aver that, “Igbo enwe eze.” This translates that the Igbos have no kings.
There are over 500 fake Igbo kings in Imo State. There are another 500 spread over Abia, Anambra, Delta, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Rivers States. These titular monarchs bereft of any moral or traditional mores have sat idly by while their Oha (subjects) are being decapitated, mowed down, and humiliated by strangers in Igboland. It is one thing for Gideon Akaluka to be beheaded and paraded by Muslims in Kano and another for Muslims to kill Igbos in Aba, Onicha, Asaba, Oka, and Iguruta (Port Harcourt) in peacetime.
I’ll take one Mahatma Gandhi over the 1000 Igbo pretenders masquerading as ezes (kings). Mbonu Ojike, M.I. Okpara, Igwe FFBC Nwankwo, Igwe Osita Agwuna, Chief Z.C. Obi, and Dr Akanu Ibiam must be churning in their graves.
Africastallestman prays that the current leadership of Ohaneze under Chief Nnia Nwodo will reunite the oha with the ezes. Until the Igbos realize that power trumps money, they risk being enslaved by the Hausa-Fulani-Yoruba conspirators.
