The Defence Headquarters today branded the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) a “militant terrorist organisation’’ and directed the army to invade the south east, yet he, Buhari, opposed any attempt by the military to invade any Northern community as a result of boko haram’s presence.

Boko haram is deadly. They are armed to the teeth. They have killed military men in their hundreds. They have killed civilians in their tens of thousands. They have burned down houses and villages. They have burned down churches and mosques. They have threatened to blow up Nigeria. They even blew up the United Nations building in Abuja.
Northern elders/leaders, including Buhari, opposed any attempt by the military to invade any Northern community as a result of boko haram’s presence. Northern elders,again and again, asked the government to withdraw the army from Borno ,the headquarters of boko haram.
In fact, Buhari publicly said that it was wrong for the military to move against boko haram. He specifically said that any attack against boko haram should be viewed as an attack against the North as a whole. I’m not talking about a century or even a decade ago. I am talking about a few years ago.
Lai Mohammed,speaking for APC ,Buhari’s party, said that it was wrong for the government to label boko haram as an unlawful organisation. This was immediately after the Nigerian government had declared boko haram an unlawful organization. APC said that declaring boko haram an unlawful organization in Nigeria is unconstitutional .
I also remember that when the United States government wanted to declare boko haram a terrorist organisation, the North vehemently opposed it. The Sultan of Sokoto led the opposition. He openly canvassed that the USA should not label boko haram a terrorist organisation.
Only CAN ,as led by pastor Ayo ,canvassed for the United States to pencil boko haram down as a terrorist organisation. I remember that when pastor Ayo traveled to the United States to lobby its government to declare boko haram a terrorist organisation, he was ridiculed by Northern leaders for daring to cause their boko haram to be called a terrorist organisation.
THE POINT IS:
If an organization as murderous and satanic like boko haram could have northern leaders and APC leaders, including Buhari, as open supporters, why should the unarmed and harmless civilians in the south East not be supported and protected? Why are southern leaders acting dumb? Why are south East governors behaving like house boys?
Nnamdi Kanu, hate him or love him, has not killed a single soul. You may be irritated by the conduct of some of his followers ,but the fact remains that they are not armed. They have not burned communities, have not blown up mosques or churches. They are just a group armed with social media and a radio station.
And yet you say that the army should clamp down, attack and kill them.
Shame you who said that boko haram should not be attacked because that would mean an attack against the North!
Shame you who said that boko haram should not be declared an unlawful organization by the Nigerian government!
Shame you who pleaded that boko haram should not be declared a terrorist organisation by the United States government!
Shame on you!!!
