Former Minister of Aviation and former Minister of Culture and Tourism, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has vehemently condemned the use of force of arms on pro-Biafra separatists.
Chief Fani-Kayode said this in a short memo he made available to Elombah.com.
Condemning the use of force on pro-Biafra agitators by Nigeria Army via the code name “Operation Python Dance”, he said that use of force has never worked in any clime.
In his words: “The slaughter of innocent civilians by soldiers must stop. Yesterday it was the Shiite Muslims. Today it is the Igbo. Tomorrow it could be you.
“Anyone that believes that a separatist movement or the quest for self-determination can be stopped by the force of arms alone has no knowledge of world history.
“The more people you torture and kill, the more the agitation will blossom and grow.
“The shedding of innocent blood energises, spreads, and fortifies the cause for which it was shed.
“This is a spiritual principle with practical consequences. It is a deep and mystical truism. The blood of martyrs is never shed in vain.
“It cries to God in heaven for vengeance and it haunts and torments those that shed it from generation to generation,” he concluded.
