Sunday Igboho and the specter of battle

By Femi Fani-Kayode

FOR troopers to escort murderous Fulani herdsmen again to a neighborhood in Ogun State from which they had been earlier evicted after which to publicly whip members of that neighborhood for evicting them merely beggars perception. Have the folks of the South West now turn into slaves of their fathers’ land? Have we lastly been conquered and occupied?

It’s completely mind-blowing. It’s depraved. It’s evil. It’s unacceptable. How way more bloodshed, carnage, violence, insults and humiliation are the folks of the South West anticipated to take? Troopers are whipping our folks like canines on the street with the intention to reinstate these which are killing, raping and maiming them?

Is our Military a Nigerian Military or a Fulani Military? Are the Fulanis superior to all others? Are they above the legislation? Is the Presidency a Nigerian Presidency or a Fulani Presidency? Why do they at all times converse out in defence of killer herdsmen and by no means for his or her victims? It is just when you might have met somebody whose entire household has been raped and butchered by Fulani herdsmen that you’ll know or admire what’s going on within the South West.

It has turn into a each day incidence.

They’ve kidnapped, maimed and slaughtered conventional rulers, businessmen, politicians, elder-statesmen, farmers, artesans, lecturers, lecturers, college students, artists, pure-water sellers, market ladies, hairdressers, the wealthy, the poor, ladies, youngsters and so many others, together with the gorgeous daughter of Baba Reuben Fasoranti, the chief of Afenifere.

For Miyetti Allah, the ACF, the NEF or anybody else to say that the Fulani “personal all of the land in Nigeria” and that we’re “being provocative”, “beating the drums of battle” and “asking for a second civil battle” by calling for the arrest and eviction of the killer herdsmen and murderous thugs from our land is insulting and provocative.

Solely the ignorant, cowardly and uninformed speak like that. Solely these which are secretly behind the carnage, that revenue from it and that despatched the herdsmen to unleash terror on us can say such issues.

The Structure doesn’t grant the Fulani or anybody else the precise to commit homicide in Nigeria or to show the South West into their killing fields. The Structure doesn’t regard Yoruba blood as being cheaper than others and neither does it prescribe that the Yoruba persons are to be handled like sacrificial lambs and killed at will.

Some Yoruba leaders need to be president or vp in 2023 and are, subsequently, ready to maintain quiet and tolerate this garbage that’s being performed to our folks. I’m not a type of leaders. Nothing on this world could make me commerce within the blood and lives of my folks. Nothing will make me flip a blind eye to their sufferings or betray them.

For me, my folks come first and politics or political expediency comes a distant second. I’ll converse the reality irrespective of the implications, it doesn’t matter what it prices me and irrespective of whose ox is gored.

And the reality is that Chief Sunday Igboho, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, Afenifere, Professor Akintoye, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, SOKAPU, the Southern and Center Belt Leaders Discussion board, SMBLF, and all the opposite people and our bodies which have spoken out in opposition to the murderous actions of the herdsmen within the South West and elsewhere are proper.

And people who have supported or tried to rationalise the legal behaviour of the killers within the title of political correctness or political expediency are treacherous, shameless and irresponsible.

In case you are a Yoruba man and also you need to be president or vp I ponder whose affairs will you be presiding over and who will you lead or symbolize on the nationwide degree if all of your Yoruba folks have already been killed?

Quickly we will begin calling the collaborators and cowards out by title. You betray your individual only for assist, acceptance and promotion from Northerners whereas no Northerner price his salt will ever promote his personal folks out for you? Nothing might be extra reprehensible than that.

Shakespeare wrote ‘cowards die many occasions earlier than their demise’ and Soyinka wrote ‘the person dies in him who stays silent within the face of tyranny and injustice’. They had been each proper. The person has died in too lots of our leaders at this time and the time to talk out is now. All of us must take a cue from Igboho. Sufficient is sufficient. An excessive amount of blood has been shed and too many lives have been taken by these herdsmen within the South West and elsewhere. They kill within the North, the Center Belt, the South-South, the South East and all over the place else they usually do it with out regret and with whole impunity.

Peace-loving and law-abiding Fulanis are welcome within the South West however people who kill, steal, rape and destroy should depart they usually have to be delivered to justice by the authorities. If this doesn’t occur count on many extra Igbohos to stand up.

The Buhari administration are complicit in these crimes and on this ethnic cleaning, mass homicide and genocide. I say they’re complicit as a result of they’ve refused to disarm the perpetrators, arrest them or deliver them to justice even though it’s their constitutional responsibility to take action.

They’ve failed to take care of legislation and order and to guard the lives and property of the Nigerian folks they usually proceed to pamper and encourage the killer herdsmen.

The Presidency not speaks for the Nigerian folks however just for Miyetti Allah and the Fulani herdsmen. It is a tragedy of monumental proportions and it doesn’t matter what they are saying they are going to by no means change.
