On 1st January, 1914, Federick Lugard, a British mercenary soldier, explorer of Africa and colonial administrator, committed an experimental blunder. A mistake which has taken so many people to their early graves. An avoidable error which has done more harm than good.
In his experimental nonsense, Lugard poured three dissimilar objects into a mould, hallucinating that they would mix when melted. But he later concluded that the South and the North are like oil and water that can never mix.
But Nigeria as the container of the objects that Lugard forced together, has since the commencement of that experiment experienced pressure. The component parts are exerting pressures on one another in the container leading to an imminent explosion of this vessel.
The reaction of these atoms in this container is becoming more spontaneous on cumulative basis and it is my prayer that it doesn't explode like an atomic bomb but disintegrate like a compound solution.
Nigeria once underwent magnetic separation in 1967 when Col. Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu led a component of this fragile compound artificially formed by Lugard out of the container but external mercenaries catalysed and restored the experimental nonsense of Lugard.
All other countries of the world but Nigeria are homogeneous mixtures. And after a period of time, such countries revisit and recheck their homogeneity, uniformity, compatibility and willingness to continue in a compound state.
There are many instances but the recent one was Britain revisiting her citizens' willingness to continue with the European Union which eventually led to Brexit.
But Nigeria being a heterogeneous mixture refuses to allow a check on her heterogeneity, incompatibility, and willingness to continue as a compound element.
Nigeria under military and democratic government suppresses those that want the check to be done.
Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is one of the organizations that have campaigned and still campaigning for the disintegration of this artificially forced compound element called Nigeria. But she has been meted with great outrageous suppression by Nigerian government through extra-judicial killings and illegal detentions of her members.
Part of the reasons why Biafrans surrendered in 1970 during the Biafran civil war was because of hunger as there was food blockage against Biafrans.
Now there's another economic blockage against the Nigerian state which would bring it to a halt in no distant time.
When the reason for forcing the mixture is destroyed, the subsequent hunger will make Nigeria surrender.
When oil is no more exported to Britain, then they will not but stop the Lugardian experimental nonsense.
As actions-speak-louder -than-voice freedom fighters in Niger Delta are not slacking to bring Nigeria to a halt, it is wise to be aware and at alert.
Therefore, Nigerians are to celebrate their last independence remembrance day on October 1st, 2016 because of the separation technique whether decantation or atomic explosion is imminent as every component part in this container is tired of the forced mixture and is ready to separate peacefully or disintegrate atomically.
