The government-sponsored terror against the Biafran has taken a new dimension as Nigerian army and police have officially adopted the jihadist tactics of razing down houses in enemy territory. A detachment of soldiers accompanied by a police squad was seen on the 1st of October, 2019, moving around Obohia community in Aba, attacking residents and burning down houses. This method being synonymous with jihad war, the unwholesome operation is therefore feared as Muslim expansionism.
Trying to find an excuse for their dastard assignment, the barbaric team claims some hoodlums attacked them. Incredible! Let’s pretend for a moment to believe the pretext. Hoodlums attacked you and rather than single out the said hoodlums you launch random attacks on citizens, razing down houses in the process? Quite risible.
Recall that a couple of months ago, August to be precise, the Nigeria army stormed a fishing community in Bayelsa state and razed down houses on the pretext that the community killed their colleague. Recall also that a similar attack was orchestrated against Odi community in Bayelsa.
That government agencies whose responsibility is to protect life and property should turn around to kill and maim those they swore an oath to protect speaks volumes. The hopelessness of the country is simply unquantifiable.
The world is therefore placed on notice about the continued genocide perpetrated against Biafra by the Nigerian state. If this terror continues, the people may have no alternative than to take their fate in their hands.
