The Hausa Fulani, the Yoruba and the slaughter in Ile Ife (1)

I have been reluctant to write anything about the clash between the Yoruba and the Hausa Fulani in the ancient city of Ile-Ife and in which far many more people were killed than anyone cares to publicly admit. 

I was reluctant because Ile-Ife happens to be the home of my ancestors and indeed my hometown and for four generations my family have had a stake there and have been making meaningful contributions to the affairs and development of the community.

Colonel Hammed Ali and the Nigerian Senate

Retired Colonel Hameed Ali, the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service, is a proud and stubborn man. His disdain for others and insufferable arrogance is not only vexatious to the spirit but also downright nauseating. 

Someone should remind him that the Holy Bible says "the Lord resists the proud and exalts the humble". Another should tell him that, according to Greek mythology, nemesis always follows hubris. If he doubts that he should find out what happened to a character called Icarus. 

Whither the Nigerian Church? No. 16

On the  21st of Dec. 2016 while praying for the nation in Abuja as God had ordered me to be doing since 2006, I dreamt I was in a gathering of a special group of young Nigerians. It seems I was not really supposed to be there because they were a special group of people. It took me time and much effort to be with them. Somehow at last I was able to be in a seat in the back row and the mostly young people were being interviewed one by one majorly to ascertain whether they should be part of the gathering or not. The hall was not large and people gathered there could not be more than fifty.

UPDATE: THE CHALLENGES OF HELPING PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS

During a service while visiting my home church in Abuja, the minister challenged us to set monthly goals we want to achieve in 2017. Well that was easy. If you recall my end of year news update, I had pledged to help get Favor, the one-eyed girl, medical attention after the brutal attack on her family in north central Nigeria.  However an unplanned reunion in northeast was to make my trip to Nigeria quite remarkable.

Editorial: OIC Schemes Against Nigeria (Part 1)

The OIC has for years been scheming to snare the oil-rich price of Nigeria. The oil reserves of Nigeria, combined with the petrol-wealth of other OIC countries, are the KEY to the strategy for the Islamization of Africa and the world. Billions of dollars lie in Nigeria’s oil deposits.

OUR FULANI NEIGBOURS ATTACKED US

My name is ASP Usman Gambo Kobin, I am a retired police officer, I am from Kobin, Numana Chiefdom, Sanga LGA of Kaduna state.

We learnt that some people were killed in Nandu, and some in Kabamu all in Numana Chiefdom. I then went to my old father around 7am and said, “baba, I don’t know what may happen to us today based on what we have been told but stay at home and don’t move around”. A Fulani man had actually hinted us of the impending attack but it was hard to ever imagine that our Fulani neighbours would come around to attack us.
