■ December 22, 2016Emphatically,going by aforesaid speech credited to Sultan of Sokoto, where he tried to make clarity on the activities of the highly rated Fulani insurgents which have killed thousands of souls mainly since Mohammed Buhari (so called President of Nigeria) assumes office; their modi operandi or mode of operation not being targeted on the Igbo speaking Biafrans. It raises concern on the imbalance surrounding statement accredited to him, the reason being that it sounds illogical, and inference to the conclusion is not factual and thereby appears as a fallacy.
The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji (Dr.) Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar IV while honouring Enugu Rangers, he attributed when he grant speech to media: "It is not possible that Fulani who have lived here (Biafraland) for so long can take up arms against their hosts (Biafrans). "If you kill, you will be killed, anybody that kills in the name of religion is a criminal".
Carefully stated, the Sultan left so many questions unanswered, and so many of them deserve answers. If Sultan claims that Fulani insurgents have no targets towards Biafrans, how did he know? If actually, the statement stands right, who carried the attack on Nimbo Community ( Nimbo also Ukpabi-Nimbo is a border town in Uzo-Uwani area of Enugu State Biafra Land, where seven villages- Ekwuru, Nimbo-Ngwoko, Ugwuijoro, Ebor, Enugu- Nimbo, Umuome and Ugwuachara)? And how of the Herdsmen has been arrested talk of to be killed? If actually, Sultan's clarity on Herdsmen mode of operation and consequences of their action are right that means the range of synergy (communication between the insurgents and Sultan is possibly close and potentially sustained) between the Herdsmen described above and Sultan's palace is tight. Meanwhile, Mohammed Buhari's silence over invasions in Enugu and other parts of Biafra land depicts supports to the insurgents, even when IPOB peaceful protesters are being killed in their number by Buhari Soldiers and illegal DSS agents.
I will say in conclusion that the Sultan of Sokoto actually implicated himself, Buhari and entire Arewa stakeholders involved in insurgency support in Nigeria. Coming to whitewash Biafrans to remain stagnant as people in Nigeria while other civilised people like Biafrans are living progressively in their various countries even to the peak of high-tech. We can not continue any longer, Biafra restoration is collectively settled, and there is no other way to put it.
