■ February 05, 2017KEY POINTS: *Nigeria Police has been a thorn in the flesh of 2face and his colleagues who earlier has planned to embark on massive protest * Illegal can not be legal in a state of legality so also legal becoming illegal in a state of illegality * IPOB has endured/absorbed a lot of killings, torture, kidnapping, suppression, persecution, oppression, marginalisation, enslavement and deprivation 2face's Failed Protest, Illuminant To Endangered IPOB Protesters Yes, 2face Dibia has cancelled his long-awaited protest after shifting it from 5th to 6th February 2017 to grace the presence of the rumoured dead president of Nigeria, Mohammed Buhari. Despite the uncertainty surrounding the cancellation of the anti-government, one fact remains that right from the onset, Nigeria Police has been a thorn in the flesh to 2face and his colleagues who earlier has planned to embark on massive protest (tagged "istandwithnigeria") against the federal government of Nigeria.
Notably, many will react to any level by calling 2face names. As such, many has referred and referenced him as 'COWARD' while others insisted that he should not be blamed considering the kind of threat messages sent to him by Nigeria forces. Some resorted in throwing blames to his mother for using Mother-Son force to stop him (2face) from embarking to protest but all the same. In all circumstances, we must appreciate the kind of country we have found ourselves. Nigeria is a country where the reality of everything is ironical both in practice. Before now, Nigeria Police has issued series of warnings and threats of death to 2face. And I see No reason why a reasonable person will not hurt the protest above.
A typical example of what could have befallen 2face's protest is the Indigenous People of Biafra's (IPOB) peaceful rallies/protests where Nigeria government will hijack, kidnap and kill protesters. If 2face is really a living Nigerian and reasonable, there is nothing wrong stopping the protest base on IPOB massacre experiences. Though, 2face's aforesaid protest does not promote or add to Biafrans' struggle but is a good illuminant to shade light on what IPOB members have passed through during their various peaceful demonstrations in Nigeria. Is not easy to carry out a peaceful protest in Nigeria.
Illegal can not be legal in a state of legality so also legal becoming illegal in a state of illegality. For Nigeria government/APC leaders to organise a 15,000 paid protesters to oppose, amidst 2face's protest shows sign of bloody protest. And it turns out normal to federal government and cohorts. For 2face to dodge from becoming Undertaker, is not act of cowardice rather running away from the illegality of Nigeria State that knows how to project plans of killing and burying innocent citizens out of wickedness.
I hereby submit that IPOB has endured/absorbed a lot of killings, torture, kidnapping, suppression, persecution, oppression, marginalisation, enslavement and deprivation. If 2face will hurt a peaceful protest just to wade off awaiting good bath How much more IPOB protesters seeking for Country Biafra? By this event, I suggest before IPOB embark to any open, peaceful protest in Nigeria, protesters should be prepared to defend themselves from Nigeria's state of illegalities.
