For over some months now, it has been an awful nightmare for the northern political elites since the launching and subsequent broadcasting of “eye-opening” messages via Radio Nigeria Hausa Service: a platform piloted by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) which is now blasting out loud in the heart of the core northern Nigeria and awakening the docile consciousness and memories of the northern youths and her entire populace.
Recall that in the middle of last year, the Nigerian government launched a cloned radio station widely known as Radio Biafra International(RBI) for the malicious purpose of distorting the untainted gospel of Biafra restoration as propagated in Radio Biafra London (RBL) and also to create nonexistent divisions in IPOB.
The above action then instigated the Indigenous People of Biafra under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to clone Nigeria’s local radio station popularly known as Radio Nigeria which has also been a tool for the propagation of false information to the masses.
The cloning of Radio Nigeria into Radio Nigeria Hausa Service by IPOB was geared towards enlightening the enslaved minds of the northern populace by their political rulers with truth and reality of what they have been subjected to over decades.
An Igbo adage says, “Onye akpana nwa Agu aka ń odu, ma odi ndu ma oñwuru añwu” which translates thus; do not touch the tail of a lying Lion because you may not know whether it is sleeping or dead.
The arrest and illegal detention of the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in late 2015, in the widest and vile imagination of the Buhari-led government was the best and sure way to finally bury the quest for Biafra divine restoration but little did they know that they only succeeded in touching the tail of a lying Lion waiting for an unfortunate prey to devour.
Just in months of launching the Radio Nigeria Hausa Service and her successful enlightenment to the hearts of the youths of the core northern part of Nigeria, it has started yielding an unmatched desired results since the inception of the Lugardian empire called Nigeria.
Most recently as a result of the acceptance of the truthful messages of freedom and liberation which Radio Nigeria Hausa Service is spewing in the northern part of Nigeria, the once most revered political elites have come under tremendous attack by the masses of their constituencies which Hon. Garba Hamman Julde of Bali/Gassol federal constituency in the lower legislative chamber has become the most recent victim according to Vanguard News [see link]. It was noted that the non-performing legislator’s assault came quite after President Buhari escaped lynching by angry northern youths at the National Mosque, Abuja on Friday 30th March 2018, according to LeadersNG News See link: [President Buhari escaped lynching by angry northern youths at the National Mosque].
These bold and courageous acts of irate youths of the northern region of Nigeria, maiming and calling their rulers’ unprintable names have justified the cruelty of Rtd. General Muhammadu Buhari’s government against the Nigerian masses and also justified the messages of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB in general.
Recall that the whereabout of Mr Kanu has remained unknown to the general public since after the military invasion of his father’s house at Afara Ukwu Ibeku, Umuahia during the infamous and bloodletting Operation Python Dance which left many youths dead by the bullets of the violent Fulani-dominated Nigerian Army simply because of the hardened truth by Nnamdi Kanu which obviously the Nigeria government cannot tolerate.
