Before the coming of the Europeans cum the British merchants into our Africa geographical space to trade, the Indigenous people of Oduduwa land and Biafra regnum i.e Kingdom, have what could be attributed as a well established local security outfit to guard and protect their people against foreign invaders.
When there’s security upheaval, the security guards manned for survillance will blow their flute(s), whistle(s) or play on the gong to alert the villagers of imminent danger and for them to take cover while the men mount themselves at very strategic places to fight on.
Numerous historical accounts from the British records also have it that it wasn’t a smooth sail for the British merchants to invade the interior parts of Benin, Oduduwa and Biafra land as there were lots of resistance from the African indigenous people living within this geographical area today known as Southern part of Nigeria that was criminally amalgamated with the Northern part of the Mohammedian Emirate of Gobir Northern Nigeria that was later usurped by the nomadic wandering Fulani herdsmen who later conquered and enforced Sunni Islam radicalism to that region till this day. In every community settings in Eastern part of Nigeria there exist what the people call “town crier” even after the British government left because it’s a form check and balance within their constituted system.
In the old Biafra, the people of Biafra have security outfits like the Ohafia warriors, the Ezumezu warriors, the aka Ikenga warriors, the Ekpe warriors, the Azu-Ulo-Ukwu warriors, the Attah Igala warriors etc; all these security outfits were set up by the different communities that constitute to what is known today as Eastern Nigeria to stop the infiltration of their ancenstral land by known and unknown enemies advancing from the North for conquest so as to keep their Biafran stock in existence. Since the coming of the Fulanis’ into the Hausa indigenous people space led by Usman Danfodio a Fulani man, who is not an African indigenous person and his ethnic group are targeting the South of Nigeria for dominance using any draconian means to achieve their aim.
How these blood thirsty ethnic group were able to convince and manipulate the British government to dubbed them with the sole rulership of Nigeria to the detriment of the real owners of Nigeria marvels every right thinking person to date, currently this terrorist innate ethnic group is carrying out ethnic cleansing in the Middle Belt of Nigeria just as their progenitors did to the Hausa people and established Emir rulership in Gobir/Hausa kingdom ruling and lording it over the Hausas in their ancestral land. Tyrant Mohammadu Buhari who descended from the Usman Danfodio is adamant in forcefully spreading Sunni Sharia Islam to every parts of Nigeria is not hiding nor pretending about this ugly move.
First in the history of Nigeria after her formation by the British government, tyrant Mohammadu Buhari adopted Islam as a state religion over the secularism nature of Nigeria, in order to achieve this move, Mohammadu Buhari criminally installed his Fulani brethren into every key sectors of the Nigeria power house, both the Judiciary, economy and military against the “Federal Principle Character” the Nigeria constitution uphold so as to perfect the final conquest of Nigeria and turn it to his great grand father Usman Danfodio Estate. Fulani Islamic radicalism and terrorism took a different measure since Mohammadu Buhari was illegally enthroned into power. Boko Haram terrorists according to the Nigerian tyrant Mohammadu Buhari are his misguided brothers and today the whole of Northern Nigeria are living in fear, panic and wanton destruction of lives and properties while in the Middle Belt of Nigeria; the same ethnic stock of tyrant Mohammadu Buhari’s Fulani herdsmen are killing and sacking indigenous communities occupying their ancestral land.
Foolishness and hoodwinking of other Nigerians is the tyrant Mohammadu APC led government openness to enrol Boko Haram and Fulani terrorist herdsmen into the Nigerian Military forces without any dissent voices opposing this grand deception of encouraging the killers of other Nigerians who are not from the Fulani ethnic stock except the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra, the menace of Fulani terrorist herdsmen in the Southern part of Nigeria has become something else that our governors seems to be dinning with the killers of their own people. With the trend of events unfolding in Nigeria today it has become necessary that the people invoke self defense which is a fundamental human right.
It has become pertinent to state here in this editorial that in Nigeria, self defence is a legal right. Section. 59, Penal Code: of the Nigeria constitution noted that “Nothing is an offence of which is done in the lawful exercise of the right of private defence”. Section 32, Criminal Code also lay emphasis that ‘It is not a crime to resist actual & unlawful violence‘. With the above stated herein, it is our firm believe to assert that the establishment of Eastern Security Network becomes a right as it is essential to the survival of the people of Eastern Nigeria against Nigerian Military, Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen conquest and subjugation. The issue of security has been part of our existence as a people and we don’t intend to trade it for anything called leadership in the Nigerian context.
Mr. Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State and his Fulani Janjaweed neo-colonial masters and some sections of the bought over and pocketed Nigeria media, in a simple term “Brown Envelope” journalists and their media fronts must know they are dealing with the most intellectually robust mass movement on the face of this earth. Anybody from Ebonyi State or any part of Biafra land foolish enough, like Dave Umahi, Nyesom Wike, Okezie Ikpeazu forming any meeting nor gathering against the establishment of Eastern Security Network will pay a heavy price for it, this time with their life. The Nigerian government and his Fulani war dogs from the Sahel have killed our people enough and now there will be no mercy. They can’t continue to kill us using the name Nigeria as a cover because they think they control the government but this time,it must be resisted with our sweat and blood.
