Who woke Theophilus Danjuma from sleep? It is either he was under the influence of alcohol or he was in coma. It is laughable for the former Nigeria defense Minister, the man who doubled with Gowon to carry out a genocidal war against Biafrans to come out in public to say that if he discloses what is happening in Nigeria, nobody would sleep. It is a pity! According to Daily Sun Newspaper, Danjuma, made the remark while lamenting that leaders from the South-West part of Nigeria were afraid of speaking out against the Federal Government. Speaking at University of Ibadan in Oyo State on Thursday 19th December 2019, he warned that Nigeria was in a big hole. He said, “In Yourbaland, everybody seems to have lost their voice, scared. And people appear not to care about what is happening. If I tell you what I know is happening in Nigeria today, you will no longer sleep." He continued, “If you want details, I will give it to you privately. We are in a big hole as a nation and people who put us in this hole have continued today. So, we have to wake up only if we can save ourselves”.
That was what Mazi Nnamdi Kanu started saying as from time immemorial to the entire Africa and Nigerians, but everybody took him for granted. Mazi Kanu has taken his time to explain all these, why the person parading himself as the Nigerian President is the real Buhari instead, an imposter from Sudan but many people underrated him and still pay deaf ear to it.
Why is T.Y. Danjuma crying foul about Nigeria where he killed more than 3 million Biafrans to keep Nigeria one and he is now talking as if he does not want Nigeria to be one again. What did he say or what was his action when Mazi Nnamdi Kanu took to Radio Biafra to expatiate on the difference between the real Buhari and the fake imposter impersonating himself as Buhari. Was Danjuma sleeping when this news broke out? A Noble Peace Prize winner and Holocaust survivor who wrote the internationally acclaimed memoir, "Night," Elie Wiesel said, “We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men or women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must at that moment become the center of the universe”
T.Y. Danjuma should be bold if he is man enough to tell the whole world that thing that would give Nigerians sleepless night, he should not be running round the circle. So, for Danjuma to start speaking in parable is grossly inconsequential.
