DO NOT START A BRUSH FIRE IN A TINDER DRY FOREST!
The deployment of the Northern dominated Nigerian Army or more appropriately Northern Nigeria Army in Igbo land is akin to starting a brush fire in the harmattan in a well-wooded dry forest. The conflagration may consume the fire setter. It is now obvious that Boko Haram is a ruse used for extorting monetary and political favors from Nigeria by their sponsors. Major General Muhammadu Buhari’s warning to President Goodluck Jonathan to treat murderous Boko Haram members with kid’s glove informs the above view.
The confirmation came from Hajia Amina Alhassan, Federal Minister for Women Affairs who threatened Mallam Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai, Kaduna State Governor, “I Will Expose Your Role In Chibok Girls Kidnapping.”
Why was President Muhammadu Buhari sitting on the arsenal currently deployed in the South East, while Boko Haram ravages the North East? Why would Buhari deploy Northern soldiers in the peaceful Igbo South East and Southern soldiers in the boiling North East to fight Boko Haram in unfamiliar territory? Why would Muhammadu Buhari deploy soldiers in a peaceful zone of the country and deploy policemen and militia in a war zone? Why didn’t Buhari send his Army to apprehend the Fulani killers of farmers at Nimbo, Enugu State? Is Muhammadu Buhari waiting on Nigerien soldiers to rescue the captured University of Maiduguri lecturers still being held by Boko Haram? It is Nigeria’s problem and not that of Niger Republic. Maybe he wants to transfer several billions of South South and South East oil monies to Boko Haram as ransom payment.
Whatever is the case, please remove your agent provocateurs from the South East. If you start killing peaceful Igbos in the South East, Africastallestman guarantees you that the brush fire will consume the whole of Nigeria. Nigeria is a tinder dry forest that may self-ignite at any time. Lighting and throwing a match into the forest is irresponsible. Buhari, you have a legacy of violence, starting with Uthman Dan Fodio and continuing with foreign Fulani herdsmen. When a peaceful individual turns violent because of violent acts visited on the individual, the peaceful individual will eventually prevail. Any destruction that you intentionally wrought on Igbos will be “returned to sender.”
Africastallestman urges you to withdraw your Gestapo forces from the South East. Pythons are sacred traditional animals in several communities in the South East. Generally, pythons do not dance. They have danced once (Operation Python Dance I) without incidents. A second dance (Operation Python Dance II) is ominous. Igbos are being pushed to the wall. After maltreatment and marginalization, is the next phase murder?
