LESSONS FROM NUREMBERG by Chief femi fani- kayode
Chief femi fani kayode reacted to the a viral video trending on social media showing how a Nigeria senator who was the deputy senate president from 2015-2019 in the person of sen. Ike Ekweremadu who believe to have been in the Senate since 2003 also 3 term deputy senate president was attacked in Germany on the 17th of August 2019.
What happened to my friend and brother Senator Ike Ekweremadu in Nuremberg, Germany at the hands of IPOB is an eye-opener and a clear signal to every political leader in southern Nigeria! The people of the south are getting angry and you either stand up and defend them or stand aside!
It takes courage to stand for those that have been unjustly killed in Nigeria. It takes courage to say “no” and to stand up against injustice in a jungle. It takes courage to identify and empathise with the enslaved, the oppressed, the poor, the vulnerable and the weak in a killing field and functional zoo.
Yet we must all do it or stop laying claim to being called leaders. When your people and kinsmen are being turned into worthless slaves with little hope for the future and when they are being slaughtered like flies simply because they are southerners and Middle Belters or because of their faith and you say and do next to nothing then somewhere along the line a price has to he paid.
What happened in Nuremberg yesterday marks the beginning of an awakening. Every southern politician, including yours truly, will be called to account to the people of the south about what he or she did to stop the genocide and ethnic cleansing of southerners in Buhari’s Nigeria.
If anyone believes that it is only IPOB or the people of the South-East that feel so bitter then they really do not know what is going on. The sons and daughters of the Niger Delta, the South-South and the South-West are equally aggrieved. The anger is palpable and it is spreading throughout the south.
As each day passes those of us, like Ike Ekweremadu, that have called for patience and restraint are being seen as traitors and sell-outs by our own people who demand a far more candid, courageous, proactive, dynamic, honest, protective and inspirational form of leadership.
Only God knows for how much longer those of us that are moderates and that believe in non-violent and passive resistance can hold the line. Our people are boiling and they are about to kindle a fire that may consumme us all if something is not done to appease them and give them hope.
I call on President Muhammadu Buhari to shed his cloak of partiality, to put Nigeria before his Fulani tribe, to stop the genocide, mass murder and ethnic cleansing, to remove the Fulani herdsmen from the south and the Middle Belt, to proscribe Miyetti Allah and the Fulani mlitants, to declare them as terrorists and enemies of the Nigerian state and to protect the lives of EVERY Nigerian from this great evil that has tormented our people and torn us apart.
The biggest miscalculation that the President could possibly make is to believe that this matter can be contained or that it will go away with time. The more the killings, the greater the build-up of anger and the greater the chance that things will soon explode.
We must do all we can to stop this and to restore love, peace, equity, justice, trust and mutual respect to our people and our land. That is the only way to ensure that what happened to Senator Ike Ekweremadu does not happen to other southern leaders some time in the not too distant future.
We must all be ready to stick our necks out for our people and defend them as aggressively and vigorously as is necessary or, if we fail to do so, we must be ready to pass on the baton and step aside for those that will.
Leadership requires risk and sacrifice. We, as southern leaders, must be ready to take a courageous stand and resolve to do both. We must do whatever it takes and whatever is necessary to protect the lives and property of our people, to defend their honor and dignity and to safeguard their future. This is a duty and obligation that we must pledge to uphold and a covenant that we must make before the Living God. I wish my friend and brother Senator Ike Ekweremadu a speedy recovery from the unfortunate events in Nuremberg, Germany.
In another development a social media user identified as king Paul ugwu defend the actions of the mob describe it as a just event and he called on all Nigerians to support the event rather condemning it.
he wrote and I quote:
Whenever your gullible friends says that Ipob is wrong by stoning Ekweremmadu, ask them;
(1) How many times did Ekweremmadu condemned the Fulani killings in Enugu state and the entire Biafra land as someone who is representing his people?
(2.). How many times did Ekweremmadu stand to condemned the invasion of NNAMDI Kanu’s home by the ZOO army?
(3.) How many times did Ekweremmadu condemned the the Zoo government inability to obey court order to release NNAMDI KANU and other Biafrans from prison?
(4.). How many times did he condemned the oppression of Biafrans by the Fulani Government?
(5.) How many times did he condemned the unnecessary arrest of innocent Ipob members across the zoo?
(6.) How many times did he raised the issue of Biafra before the national assembly?
(7.) How many times did he condemned all the kidnappings happening across Biafra land by the Fulani herdsmen?
(8.) How many times did Ekweremmadu condemned the massive road blocks or road bribing centers across Biafra Land?
(9.) How many times did he condemned the unnecessary arrest and persecution of Bianfrans by the zoo sponsored Bokoharam and marauding Fulani security operatives across Biafra land?
(10.) How many times did he condemned the IPOB proscription as someone who mean well for Ndi Igbo?
(11.). Python dance took place and we barely heard him spoke against that very activities of the Zoo army which means he was among the caucus that brought python on our land.
(12). Why is Ekweremmadu not saying anything over the none functional sea ports in Biafra land?
(13). Why is Ekweremmadu silent over none functional international airport in Biafra land?
(14). Ekweremmadu never said anything when Falani cabals moved from grazing route to grazing reserve. From grazing reserve to grazing colony. From grazing colony to ranching. From ranching to importation of grass from Brazil for cattle. From importation of grass to Fulani Radio. From Fulani Radio to N100 billion paid to Miyetti Allah. From N100 billion to RUGA. From RUGA to e-registration. From e-registration to military ranching.
In conclusion, Ekweremmadu have no good intention for Igbos and Biafrans in general and the punishment for treacherous individual is death.
