The British amalgamation that brought divergent and opposing Indigenous nationalities in this part of the world that gave birth to the country called Nigeria, took place in the year 1914. It was orchestrated by greed and avarice. The British knew that the only way to perpetrate enslavement on the people is through the instrumentality of colonialism especially in Africa. And to accomplish this, a forceful concoction has to be carried out with a name tag. This of course they craftily implemented without seeking the consent of the various Indigenous people groups that had been in existence prior to that period. The gullible has been grossly deceived over the years to believe that the so-called Nigerian founding fathers were privy to the amalgamation agreement. This assertion remains questionable as calculating their ages prior to 1914 runs foul of reality. The ages of the Nigerian founding fathers as widely claimed, were yet inconceivably realistic before the event under consideration.
THE PRESENT DAY NIGERIA
The convoluted Nigerian system which was fundamentally premised by the British colonists right from inception, gave rise to discords and varying degrees of internal crises. And basically, the people (mostly Biafrans) have no other alternative than frontally demanding for their eventual and unstoppable exit from the unfruitful union. The contrapted empire right from time, has remained an exceptionally dangerous place for human habitation. People are steadily being slaughtered like animals as a result of forced and jaundiced unity primarily put together to service the interests of the colonialists and their Northern surrogates.
While a seemingly endemic economic hardship hit the people, suffering have become an institutionalized dividend of cluelessness in governance. The vampiric activities of Hausa-Fulani herdsmen cum Boko Haram terrorists have been elevated, as killing of unarmed, innocent civilians remain unabated. The government has kept blind eyes on these heinous crimes principally, because of the implementation of the planned drive of Fulani Islamic supremacy over and above every other things in Nigeria. The military whose fundamental obligation it is to curb internal crises of this magnitude, has shamelessly reneged on their professional contract of protecting lives and properties. They not only serve as service institution to the Fulani militias in their jihadistic conquest but also play the role of victimization tools in the hands of politicians against their perceived enemies.
Nigeria as a fantastically corrupt enclave, which is commonly referred to as the "Giant of Africa", has pitiably nosedived into self-destruct going by her generic evil antecedents. In the African continent, she has irredeemably lost her bearing and it is noteworthy to state here that every other African country that is bedeviled with corruption and bad government, is directly or indirectly schooled by Nigeria. Politically and economically viable countries in Africa of today, have gone well ahead because of right foundation and people-oriented governments.
There is absolutely no deducible reason why the oppressed Indigenous ethnic nationalities should not conduct a referendum to determine their future. The most appalling which has consistently left tears in the eyes of the people, is the unabated spate of gruesome killings of the innocent by Fulani Islamic militias known as herdsmen. They have assumed the position of untouchable monsters, wildly invading communities and villages, living trails of destruction of both lives and properties behind. The government of the day led by Muhammadu Buhari, an ardent Fulani Islamic fundamentalist, sees nothing wrong with this menace as the perpetrators are his cherished kinsmen. The government has remained partisan instead of proactively, taking decisions that will permanently stem the ugly trend. The masses have remained hopeless in the hands of a government that swore to an oath to provide them security and safety. The gravely compromised government calls the onslaught of these well armed vampires, "Farmers and Herdsmen clashes" to beguile the gullible while in actual truth, there exists absolutely nothing of such. It has been unrelenting invasions of these Fulani Islamic terrorists, of the people's homes and farmlands for recolonization.
It is pertinent to state here that before 6th of February 2014, the courageous and indefatigable leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, the Nigerian Army abducted Mazi Nnamdi Kanu prophesied that: "Fulani herders (terrorists) will be armed and encouraged to ravage our communities and slaughter us with brazen impunity and that their masters will protect them. They are coming to ensure that my people are enslaved forever..... Those who do not believe me, will see it happen before their very eyes.
