 The Tragedy Of The Unknown Gunmen And The Culpability Of The Nigerian Government

The Nigerian government must choose between the fulanization of the Nigerian security apparatus and playing of the blame game on insecurity. Both ways cannot be in the same kitty. One cannot beat a child and tell him/her, not to cry. The Fulani controlled Nigerian government cannot in anyway, going by evolving developments, absolve itself of culpability, since a Fulani heads every security agency in Nigeria. It has been long acknowledged that only two groups are involved in running a government. Those at the table and those on the table. Biafrans, especially the Igbos, regrettably, are the last group. They have no say or role anymore in corporate Nigeria. There, lies their predicament.

The Fulani people are not spectacularly an interesting people in a positive sense but have a history of land grabbing and bloody conquests. Just as it was with the world in failing to hold Mohammed accountable in his criminal method of violent and forceful religious conversions, the Fulanis were not motivated by Britain to choose a different path;  a more honorable path, when their paths crossed. In the 18th century era and not long after the Hausa kingdom had been ravaged in the most gruesome way by the Fulani jihadists, Britain patted them on the back and offered them more seats at the table which was the beginning of mutual partnership in the reign of terror.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, do not have a motive for “the shock doctrine” going on, in Biafra land especially in Anambra State. It cannot benefit from the destruction of the people it has taken flaks for defending and even paid the ultimate price. IPOB does not have a history of abuse and violence. Conversely, it has been at the receiving end of these. Historically, the Fulanis and their goons have a dark history of brigandage, violence and bribery. They are the torchbearers of terrorism in the British enclave, priding itself unapologetically, with about five terrorist organizations including the second and fourth deadliest terror organizations according to the United Nations Terrorism Index (UNTI).

The Nigerian army and the Department of State Security (DSS), can deflect all they want, but smart people already know that only three (3) groups have the motive to participate in the ongoing unknown gunmen saga. Regardless of the group, government is directly responsible for any  emanating mayhem as a result. These are: (1) The Fulani government, notorious for unknown soldiers. They took the aftermath of the #EndSars police station attacks to another notch. 

(2) The unconscionable and desperate politicians wanting to cash-out from the imbroglio. These too, have elements within the government funding it.

(3) There is also the victims of government overreach and brute use of force. Relatives of victims or survivors hardened after their ordeal. It is now these people against the government and believe it or not, they have nothing to lose. In all these, the Nigerian government is solely to be blamed for the unknown gunmen mayhem. The only path to peace (if government is really interested), is to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and all prisoners of conscience and announce a date for a referendum. However, the interest of the government in seeking for peace is seriously in doubt.
