A certain group of terrorists organised themselves for the sole aim of unleashing death on innocent Nigerians.
---The President tried at every given opportunity to convince the world that they are Libyans once armed by Gaddafi, avenging the death of Gaddafi.
---The president began to canvass that the ancestral lands of Nigerians being forcefully taken and given to these "Libyans" who invaded Nigeria.
---The people refused and instead urged the government to arrest and prosecute the Libyans killing them over their own lands.
--The people begged the government to arrest, prosecute, kill or allow them defend themselves against the "Libyans".
--The government warned that anyone who touches any of the "Libyans" will be arrested and prosecuted instead.
---They killed, killed and are killing.
---Each time they killed, a group of herdsmen under the name "Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association" claimed responsibilities for the killings and at every point, they are given platforms to explain why they are killing with an early morning "tea cup".
---The President kept claiming the killers are Libyans, even while the Nigeria herders association claimed responsibilities.
---Five young men ignored the government warning and killed one of the "Libyans" while they were carrying out attack in their community and killed 48 persons. They were arrested, prosecuted and sentenced to death by hanging within a very short period.
---To avoid further attempt to kill the "Libyans", the armed forces of the government invaded the homes of all religious and traditional leaders in search of weapons. They found none. The idea was to dispossess them of all weapons of defence.
---The government went abroad to announce to the world that the only remedy to the killings is that all Nigerians must open up their lands to accommodate them and give unfettered access to their herds to feed on their farms.
---The people stood on their decisions. No going back.
---The government stood on her decisions. No going back.
---The killings continued. The few "Libyans" that were arrested after global cry were tactically released for lack of diligent prosecution. Note, the same government is the body responsible for prosecution.
---The "Libyans" were secretly called, given monetary compensation for their wrong prosecutions. One "height-challenged" Governor from the north couldn't keep his mouth shut. He announced the gesture in pride.
---The "Libyans" were encouraged. This time they bought more sophisticated weapons to kill. They launched several attacks, displaced citizens off their lands, took over those lands and renamed them. As at today, over 52 communities have been captured and renamed by "Libyans".
---There is a need to conquer more territories. They went for more.
---At a goal, the "Libyans" killed over 400 persons. The government spokesmen openly took over their defence. "You can't rustle their cattle, block their pathways and expect them not to kill", they told the world. "Leave your land if you don't want to live under the land", they admonished.
Now the twist:
---The government turned around claiming the killings are sponsored by opposition parties. They insist that they are political killings.
---A certain pastor decided to curse all those behind the killings.
---The opposition accused by the government are screaming "amen" to his prayers but the same government is calling for the arrest and prosecution of the pastor who is cursing "the opposition behind the killings".
---The government is going from one place to another appealing that Nigerians give up their ancestral lands to the "Libyans" and the killers sponsored by "the opposition" if they want to stay alive.
---In the twist, the government has, shamelessly, given us 3 different narratives:
a. The killers are from Libya who took over specific places in Africa to avenge the death of Gaddafi;
b. The herdsmen are killing because they need grazing areas for their herds;
c. The opposition, especially PDP are sponsoring hoodlums to carry out the killings for political reasons.
In its effort to confuse us and the world, the government has ended up confusing itself.
Now tell me why even a coconut head cannot process what's happening in Nigeria.
Anyway, my aim is to tell my story so history will not be twisted when it's needed.
