WHO DID SIN?

Share it:

Few days ago, his eminence the Sultan of Sokoto allegedly attributed the economic woes, the insurgence and banditry in the country as chastisement from Allah because of the sins of Nigeria. I think this is one of the most honest statement to emanate from a Nigerian Islamic cleric in recent times. Who did sin? That sounds like one of the questions in Holy scriptures by the disciples of Christ, when a man born blind was brought to him for healing.

"John 9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?"

The Islamic cleric was not specific on who did sin, I guess he was applying caution to avoid stepping on toes, or should I say he want to tow the line of his contemporaries who only issue press statement to water down an existing tension in the land or to create a new one in the political landscape concerning the economic and political realities of our time.

I had expected him to give leadership as a father to the process of reconciliation that many political gladiators are hypocritically crying for only during campaign: shouting one Nigeria as if there is anything like that. If people are afraid to speak the truth then, ungodly men will continue to thrive in iniquity with impunity.

The Biafra genocide of 1967-1970 which started as a political crisis in 1966 later degenerated into the 1966 pogrom in the Northern Nigeria. The Biafrans known then as Eastern region did not pick up arms to fight Nigeria. As they left their residence heading to the East for safety, those who escaped being lynched by the Northerners, were ambushed by their fellow countrymen and massacred in thousands in Makurdi in the present-day Benue State.

The whole region in Nigeria were against one people; the Biafrans. Their sin; they wanted a nation where their lives and property will be protected. The world powers having been deceived by Britain through their propaganda machine; BBC, turned their deaf ear to the plights of Biafran children and infants who were starved until they became living skeleton with protruding stomach after the genocide, about 3.5 Million Infants and children were starved to death.

About 10 Million Biafrans lost their lives, according to a recent report by a Spanish journalist. This is the story we will never get tired of telling, because the perpetrators of this evil in their arrogance have refused to apologize to the victims. Karma knows no bound, in fact religion and ethnicity is no barrier to Karma. Karma is a no gender sensitive phenomenon.

Those who brought war to the peaceful land of Biafra has now turned their land to theatre of war, those who turned Biafrans to refugees are now living as refugees in their own land. Those who stole our money in the bank are now our customers throughout the whole country. 

I am not rejoicing over anybody's calamity for even my religion forbids such, but we must speak the truth as it is. The North, the West and Middle-Belt sinned against Biafrans, they committed abominations against Biafrans and should start by asking for forgiveness, although it will not stop Biafra restoration but at least it may bring peace to their region. What you see in Nigeria now is a prelude to what is about to come. Many will run to Biafra land to seek for refuge even the enemies of Biafra. Biafra will live the through meaning of her name; "The city of refuge."

We will continue to uphold the truth, I know it hurts but we have no other option than to tell our story.
