 INSECURITY: It Is High Time We Collectively Abolish The British Modern-Day Slave Company Called Nigeria

On the evening of May 11, 1789, a former member of Parliament of the United Kingdom, philanthropist and leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade, William Wilberforce gave his first address in Parliament against the slave trade. Wilberforce argued that it was both brutal and superfluous for the British economy. His words were part of a deliberate strategy that began in 1787 when the British slave Abolition Committee "concluded that the general and moral case against slavery had been made, and that the way to induce a positive willingness to end the trade was to demonstrate that it was impolitic as well as unjust and inhumane."

As a result, the Committee "focused its attention more specifically on the claim of political necessity, which is routinely invoked to explain this traffic." According to historian Roger Anstey, this was the start of a deliberate program of "advocacy, which was to be regular in the entire abolition effort from then on." The slave trade was outlawed throughout the Empire in 1807, after a twenty-year campaign by Parliament.

Fast-forward to now, it will be needless to argue that Nigeria is still a slave concentration camp, created by the British colonialists as a modern day slave trade center and a legacy of British colonialism. Therefore, a move to abolish Nigeria just like the ancient Slave Trade, should be a task for every living human being in Africa to get concerned about, and actively get involved in.

With the enormous resources at the disposal of this geographical area, Nigeria, she should be an economic hub and a beacon of hope for Africa. But unfortunate, Nigeria has become a big waste, a tragedy and a killing field for the Fulanis. This is why the whole of Africa must march collectively  counter the British government and their propaganda tool, the British Broadcasting Cooperation(BBC). The killings, kidnappings, maiming and wanton destruction of lives and properties across the country is increasing on a day by day basis. Those in power are not perturbed or disturbed about the situation. In fact, they are busy campaigning now for the next election, and funding their campaign with unaccounted contributions.

Regrettably, this situation of Nigeria was vividly captured by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB). On the RadioBiafra broadcast of February 6, 2014, and at several other instances, Kanu warned that the circumstance would get worst. According to the 2014 broadcast of the IPOB, I quote: “As they campaign vigorously for elections, you would think, they are coming to grow the economy, enthrone justice, breed unity and tolerance, love for one another. No, they are coming to enthrone Hausa Fulani supremacy, to reposition the security agencies by sacking all competent hands and replace them with their kinsmen in order to drive their ethnic domination of the south; the Fulani herdsmen will be armed and encouraged to slaughter us with impunity and their masters will protect them. They are coming to ensure that my people are enslaved forever. Those who do not believe me now, will soon see it happen before their eyes.”

Exactly what he said 8 years ago is the situation of things today. Those who never believed him are now testifying with their mouths. The Fulani herdsmen are now enthroned, armed, situated in every strategic places in the country, aided by Nigeria military and police to kill and destroy lives and properties.

Consequently, let us make hay while the sun shines, for the night is fastly befalling us, when no man can work. It is high time we collectively abolished this country called Nigeria, before it will be too late. A very highly recommended option for that, is ‘referendum’ that IPOB has been asking for. But, considering the disaster these Fulani killers have become, every other option must be on table.

We must rise to dismantle British subjugation and guarantee freedom for all entrapped indigenous people in Nigeria. It is now, or never!
