It has become a norm in Nigeria for an opposition party to kill as many innocent citizens as possible to discredit and rubbish the image of the ruling one in the next election. To score a point against each other, a crime must be perpetrated against the citizenry. It is no longer a question of how have your party influenced the lives of the people, it is now how many people were killed in your regime. If five thousand were killed in one’s regime, a political party that recorded 4500 deaths will have upper hand during the next presidential elections.
This has generated the unholy culture of politically sponsored terrorism. Political parties routinely sponsor terrorists to unleash mayhem on innocent people just to paint the opponent in a bad light. APC party has their own terrorist group while PDP has theirs.
It is unfortunate that the Nigerian populace has found themselves in this same mess that Pakistanis have been going through. The Pakistan government is known for this game of terrorism. In fact, terrorism is a big business in Pakistan and l believe that Nigerian political parties borrowed it from them since they are allies.
Of course, for every government sponsored terrorist attack, there must be a concerted stratagem for concealing the truth – the blame game strategy. In Pakistan, the government blames it on the Taliban, ISIS.
In Nigeria, religion was used for many years to excuse the crimes. The perpetrators always blame religion by referring to the attacks as religiously oriented. Secondly, a serving regime always blames the past regime of being behind the terrorist attacks. This is often accepted even though blaming a past regime is useless because as an elected president, there should not be any excuse for insecurity.
Currently, the name “IPOB” has become a soft landing for political parties who have been behind the terrorist attacks from inception. In fact, IPOB has been accused of being behind all the evils happening in Nigeria today. The question is, is there any difference between the Nigeria before the coming of IPOB and the Nigeria of IPOB era? Of course the answer is none. This only vindicates IPOB and its security apparatus, ESN.
Nigeria as an enclave is designed by the West to be used in reducing the world population. This horrible game has been on and the people are at the receiving end. The truth is that only the people can extricate themselves from this evil. It cannot be achieved individually; it is to be done collectively.
Join IPOB today in calling for a referendum. That is the only solution to this politically sponsored terrorism.
