Christians have no choice but to transform CAN into an established Organization for the promotion and protection of Christianity in Nigeria in the face of the threat of Islamism otherwise known as – Political Islam, which has no single creed or political manifesto but certain common beliefs such as that (1) Nigerian Society should be reconstructed in line with the Religious principles and ideals of Islam.
Let me start this auspicious article in this manner. On Friday11th march 2016 before 3am while in pain talking to God (for suddenly calling my beloved friend, companion and wife home on Wednesday 3rd February 2016) I had a spiritual encounter via a dream.
I saw a very sloppy brown coloured mountainous rock with a lot of green vegetation and growth. I saw little dogs, sheep, antelopes and lions all playing and skipping together on the rock. As I watched from afar, it was a marvel to me. Suddenly I was in a living room of a house with American preacher John Haggee and other white folks and they shared the word of God, I listened to them intently in the corner where I sat. Then John Haggee said, “Tell Nigeria that GU, BUIK and many USA Corporations want to come and set up but not until you have at the presidential palace SARAI birds that fly and take snapshot.
Madam Sarah Danladi 45 served her husband the Local Beans popularly known as
Waken Gida a delicacy popular in Southern Part of Kaduna State. She and her
husband and 6 Children went to bed that evening quite early. Unknown to Sarah
that was the last time she would see her family.
Sarah could not sleep that night while her husband and Children where fast
asleep. At around 10 pm she felt like to ease herself but she decided to stay put
maybe sleep will come and she would forget about the call of nature. Some few
minutes to 11pm she could no longer hold it and she silently went out. Instead of
going into the Bathroom / Toilet located some few feet from her room she
decided to enter into the Corn Farm just by her room.
As she was easing herself, she heard some movements in the farm opposite
where she was and the movement was getting closer and louder. She was curious
what it was and all of a sudden she saw a tall figure came out with something
that look like a Gun. Before she could blink her eyes they became 6 figures all
holding machetes and Gun. One of them whispered something in a Language she
does not understand and 3 charged into their house the door was sure open
because she is outside. One of the 3 outside set fire on their 2 bans where they
store their grains. She then heard the 'tat ra tat ra tat tat tat' sound typical of a
Kalashnikov she looked up to see the other compound north of their house it's
already in flames, the next West of their compound was also in flames . She
decided to lie-down low in the farm until morning.
That was the longest night she ever experienced in her life it seems morning will
never come. She got some respite from her long wait for morning when the cock
crowed. At around 5:30 am she developed some boldness and decided to come
out of hiding going into her house she decided to check her Children who were all
sleeping in a room they were all dead in pool of their blood. She checked her
room her husband too gone , dead. She could not hold herself any longer she
Unknown to Madam Sarah other villages such as Me-sankwai, Tekum and
Ungwan Gatah were also attacked and it was simultaneous at 11pm. The
Operation took 3 hours and no Single security in form of Soldiers or Police came
for their help. 100 people Babies, Children, Young and Old lost their lives that
night many roasted while sleeping in their homes that night of March 2014 in
those villages in Moroa Chiefdom of Kaduna State.
Many villagers when they were asked said they don't know why the Fulanis did
that. They said if the Fulanis have problem with them why didn't they come for
dialogue? But how would they even have dialogue when you don't know who you
are going to talk to?
The Fulani massacre have today taken another Dimension. They kill at will and
claim they stole their cows. ..Imagine the fabricated lies. If your cows are stolen
are you not confident of a regime headed by a Fulani man, can't you report to the
appropriate authorities. It was reported that 1.3m Middle belters have moved from
their ancestral homes due to this attacks by both Fulanis and Boko Haram.
The Fulanis have a Motive. Read this:
On October 2nd 2014, Alhaji Aliyu Gwarzo, a prominent Fulani leader from Kano,
said the following words to Point Blank News Magazine. He said,
"when I say that the Presidency must come to the north next year I am referring to
the Hausa-Fulani core north and not any northern Christian or Muslim minority
The Christians in the north such as the Berom, the Tiv, the Kataf, the Jaba, the
Zuru, the Sayyawa, the Bachama, the Jukun, the Idoma and all the others are
nothing and the muslim minorities in the north, including the Kanuri, the Nupe, the
Igbira, the Babur, the Shuwa Arabs, the Marghur and all the others know that when
we are talking about leadership in the north and in Nigeria, Allah has given it to
us, the Hausa-Fulani.
They can grumble, moan and groan as much as they want but each time they go
into their bedrooms to meet their wives and each time they get on their prayer
mats to begin their prayers, it is we the Fulani that they think of, that they fear,
that they bow to and that they pray for.
Some of them are even ready to give us their wives and daughters for one night's
sport and pleasure. They owe us everything. This is because we gave them Islam
through the great Jihad waged by our father the great Usuman Dan Fodio.
We also captured Ilorin, killed their local King and installed our Fulani Emir. We
took that ancient town away from the barbarian Yoruba and their filthy pagan
gods. We liberated all these places and all these people by imposing Islam on
them by force.
It was either the Koran or the sword and most of them chose the Koran. In return
for the good works of our forefathers Allah, through the British, gave us Nigeria to
rule and to do with as we please. Since 1960 we have been doing that and we
intend to continue.
No Goodluck or anyone else will stop us from taking back our power next year. We
will kill, maim, destroy and turn this country into Africa’s biggest war zone and
refugee camp if they try it.
Many say we are behind Boko Haram. My answer is what do you expect? We do
not have economic power or intellectual power. All we have is political power and
they want to take even that from us.
We must fight and we will fight back in order to keep it. They have brought in the
infidels from America and the pigs from Israel to help them but they will fail. The
war has just begun, the Mujaheddin are more than ready and by Allah we shall
If they don’t want an ISIS in Nigeria then they must give us back the Presidency
and our political power. Their soldiers are killing our warriors and our people every
day but mark this: even if it takes one hundred years we will have our revenge.
Every Fulani man that they kill is a debt that will be repaid even if it takes 100
years. The Fulani have very long memories.".
Men like Alhaji Aliyu Gwarzo have clearly become prisoners of their own vain
fantasies and dark delusions. They represent the ''Chief Whip'' or ''the heavy
muscle'' within the Fulani ruling class.
They are direct, crude, threatening and vulgar and they come across like boastful
bullies and motor-park touts.
Yet despite this they must be taken very seriously because they represent an
increasingly powerful and strong-willed tendency within the circles of caliphate
power and the Fulani ruling elite.
A slightly more refined yet equally eloquent testimony of their battle-ready
temperement and mindset was provided by none other than President
Muhammadu Buhari himself in 2013 when he said that if what happened in 2011
during the Presidential elections happens again in 2015 and he ends up losing to
President Goodluck Jonathan, who happens to be a southern Cristian, ''the dog
and the baboon will both be soaked in blood". His words are few yet his point was
Finally let us consider the contribution of the respected elder statesman, Alhaji
Lawal Kaita, to the discourse when he said, before the Presidential election in
2011, that ''power must return to the north otherwise we (meaning northerners)
would make the country ungovernable''.
Jonathan went ahead to win the election and Lawal Kaita and co. went ahead to
honor their word: from 2011 till 2015, make the country ungovernable they
These are shocking and deeply troubling contributions from these Fulani leaders
and the import of their insidious threats are self-evident. They need no further
analysis or explanation here.
In the light of all this one thing remains clear: it is time for us to do whatever it is
that we must do to save our country and if those that believe that they own it
refuse to be reasonable and fair to the rest of us, perhaps we should consider the
possibility of redefining her.
********Most Nigerians including those affected in Kaduna , Plateau , Nassarawa ,
Benue and Taraba are in denial about what is going on and some are just too
intimidated and cowardly to acknowledge the problem let alone to speak out or to
attempt to resist it.
After Olu Falaye's Kidnap:just 1 Yoruba man we saw a strong worded warning
from Afenifere to the Presidency. Ondo State recently gave a strong warning to
any Fulani found causing trouble in that state. More than 300 killed in Agatu and
no any strong word from any of you? This is rather absurd. We need to see a
strong delegation from the Middlebelt lead by people like TY Danjuma, David Mark,
David Jonah Jang, Jerry Gana and Zamani Lekwot to the Presidency warning in
strong terms these Fulani atrocities.
DON'T EVER SAY IT DOESN'T CONCERN YOU..IT ALL STARTED WITH THE TIVS
WE CALL IT TIV / FULANI FIGHT, IT GOT TO THE BIROMS, IT WENT TO
SOUTHERN KADUNA NOW IT'S IDOMA. ..IT WILL BE YOU TOMORROW.
Got this from Facebook
There is a Bill before the Nigerian National Assembly that has successfully scaled through second reading in both the Senate and the House of Representatives, which deserves very close scrutiny by all Nigerians. The international community should also be interested in this Bill because of the magnitude of the internal crises that the Bill could create with attendant spill-over effects if passed. All that is left in the legislative process to make it a law is 3rd Reading, that is, a clause by clause debate and then assent by the President.
Comments: I have attached some very controversial portions of the curriculum as it relates to religion. It is rather unfortunate that this curriculum was approved by President Goodluck Jonathan's administration who is supposed to be a Christian from the South-South when Prof. Mrs Ruqayyatu Ahmed Rufa'i was minister of Education. It is more annoying that Chief (Barr) Ezenwo Nyesom Wike was the Honourable Minister of State for Education at the time or approval. Wike is the current Governor of Rivers State, another Christian from the South-South and to worsen matters, the document was signed by Prof Godwill Obioma: a Christian Iboman!!
ENUGU—Tension is brewing in Owa community in Ezeagu Local Government Area of Enugu State where a Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Aniako Celestine, priest in charge of St. Joseph Catholic Church, Ukana, Udi Local Government Area was kidnapped by suspected Fulani herdsmen Saturday evening on his way from his home town, Ezeagu.
Saudi Arabia announced that it was forming a new “Islamic military alliance" devoted to fighting global terrorism. The plan stemmed from the "keenness of the Muslim world to fight this disease, which affected the Islamic world first, before the international community as a whole," Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman told reporters during a rare news conference.
In many ways, this alliance seems designed to calm Western critics who have frequently complained that the Muslim world isn't doing enough to combat terrorism and extremism. However, the details of the planned alliance are more than a little unclear and have left some scratching their heads, unsure who exactly is in the alliance and what it is actually designed to do.
Elders drawn from the three major tribes in Benue state have urged President Muhammadu Buhari to declare Fulani herdsmen’s invasion of the state as well as the gruesome massacre of villagers by the armed herders as act of insurgency and label the perpetrators as terrorists to be routed by the military.
They made this call in a communiqué issued at the end of a unity meeting held in Makurdi and attended by the leaders of Tiv, Idoma and Igede.
AFRICA, HEADLINES BY NEWSRESCUE MARCH 25, 2016
A video of retirement by Daesh Nigeria affiliate, Boko Haram’s notorious leader has raised many questions. In March of 2015 Boko Haram leader, its Shekau swore the Bay’ah oath of allegiance to the ISIS or better put, Daesh, the Iraq-centred global terror network.
Swearing a Bay’ah-oath in Islam is hefty, it’s not a joke. The word comes from “sell” or “transaction.” By pledging you have sold yourself to that Imam, guide or spiritual leader.
The swearing of allegiance to Daesh by Boko Haram’s Shekau split ranks in the terror organisation with a new faction leader, Muhammad Daud veering off in open rejection.
The implication of the oath was simple: from then on, Shekau acted on orders from above and was no longer in command of his network. He was now a worker for Iraq’s Abu Baghdadi.
While the losses Boko Haram has faced in recent months are important, the Thursday video of Shekau’s retirement with an ISIS flag prominently behind him, spread shocks through the world.
It will be the first time in history, perhaps, that a group leader will retire openly and in public announcement while not under duress (with no gun to his head). David Otto, CEO of UK-based global security provider TGS Intelligence Consultants, told IBTimes UK, “The goal and ideology of groups like Iswap or Isil [the Islamic State] is beyond one man and definitely beyond Shakau.”
Most terror or other rebellion leaders hide for as long as they can and never surrender. The United States took over Afghanistan and Osama Bin Laden never surrendered or quit his mission. In Nigeria and larger West and Central Africa, and then most juicy north Africa with Daesh’s luxury second command capital based comfortably in Libya, there are simply too many places to hide and live large without a need to retire.
Terror is not a particular mission that requires its leaders quitting until or unless their mission is accomplished.
Unhappy Shekau And A Mission Accomplished/Being Accomplished?
While inexperienced analysts interpreted Shekau’s depressed body language and tone in the video as his being sick, our analysts saw something totally different.
Boko Haram’s Shekau was sad and not sick. He, known for his maniacal narcism was depressed and frustrated beyond his limits that he was forced to make such a pathetic recorded retirement speech. Aminu Abubakar writing for AFP used the words, “dejected.”
There were certain words of note: “I got your message and so I am making this public statement,” Shekau said, “I am telling the world my/the end has come.”
It was clear: Shekau had been ordered to retire and he did so.
Again, the peculiarity of such order is hard to reconcile. It is more suspicious that the commander of Daesh’s wing in Nigeria would be instructed by a far off command centre to retire. If at all Shekau was facing pressures, what pressure was Abu Baghdadi facing to not sacrifice his last men in Nigeria or tell them to quietly hide, but rather he tells his able captain in West Africa to shamefully make a public surrender which would de-motivate and retire all other men under him?
A Dream Come True
There are two possible reasons why Shekau was ordered by Daesh in Iraq to retire:
1. The first possibility is that Muhammad Daud, Barnawi or some other faction head had taken over. But this reason still does not satisfy the conditions and implications of a public Shekau retirement speech. A retirement speech is not personal but organizational. It affects the entire group. By retiring publicly, Shekau was destroying the fabric of whatever was left of the terror network that whoever was to take over was going to inherit. Power exchanges are private affairs and not done by retiring the whole group.
2. The second and more plausible explanation of Abubakar, Boko Haram’s Shekau’s public retirement is that the mission was accomplished in Nigeria. This is the more favoured explanation according to most of our analysts and security experts consulted.
The question was: why would Abu Bakr Baghdadi decide the need to cancel his mission in Nigeria? This would mean Nigeria no longer needed a mission. The follow-up question is: to whose benefit is such a public retirement speech? The only answer to that is the current Nigerian leadership. It seemed to positively advertise and speak tremendously well of the success of Nigeria’s campaign against the terrorists and not surprisingly, Nigeria quickly discredited the statements.
Analysts suggest that it is possible that when Abu Bakr Baghdadi saw the way the Nigerian government smashed Shia Muslims in Nigeria he was so impressed that he decided a terror mission will only disturb a government working in tandem with it (ISIS).
As many as 1000 Shia Muslims were massacred or otherwise rendered missing in a robust, described as extra-judicious “honour killing” military action against them in Nigeria’s northern city of Zaria last December.
The world renowned leader of Shia millions in West Africa (at least 10 million in Nigeria alone) and the Islamic movement in Nigeria was shot six times, his wife was also shot severally, three of his sons were killed in front of his eyes; his home was demolished and burned to the ground with everyone in it as well as all other of the movement buildings. Shia graves were even exhumed. He and his wife were beaten severely before being incarcerated and have both since been detained incommunicado by the Nigerian government. This would be a dream come true for ISIS; known to be an operation against Shia Muslims more than anything else.
Why would Daesh want to continue financing Boko Haram to pester a Nigerian administration that achieves the same objectives but ever so much better than Daesh, Boko Haram and other anti-Shia terror organisations have ever been able to? It would be counter-intuitive.
Nigeria’s alliance with the so-called Saudi-led anti terror coalition further impressed ISIS. It is recalled that Saudi Arabia’s former ambassador to Washington and a very prominent Prince and the Kingdom’s Intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, aka Bandar Bush confided with the MI6 head with the following remarks of note as presented by the Independent:
Prince Bandar Bin Sultan had a revealing and ominous conversation with the head of the British Secret Intelligence Service, MI6, Sir Richard Dearlove. Prince Bandar told him: “The time is not far off in the Middle East, Richard, when it will be literally ‘God help the Shia’. More than a billion Sunnis have simply had enough of them.”
The fatal moment predicted by Prince Bandar may now have come for many Shia, with Saudi Arabia playing an important role in bringing it about by supporting the anti-Shia jihad in Iraq and Syria. Since the capture of Mosul by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) on 10 June, Shia women and children have been killed in villages south of Kirkuk, and Shia air force cadets machine-gunned and buried in mass graves near Tikrit.
In Mosul, Shia shrines and mosques have been blown up, and in the nearby Shia Turkoman city of Tal Afar 4,000 houses have been taken over by Isis fighters as “spoils of war”. Simply to be identified as Shia or a related sect, such as the Alawites, in Sunni rebel-held parts of Iraq and Syria today, has become as dangerous as being a Jew was in Nazi-controlled parts of Europe in 1940.
There is no doubt about the accuracy of the quote by Prince Bandar, secretary-general of the Saudi National Security Council from 2005 and head of General Intelligence between 2012 and 2014, the crucial two years when al-Qa’ida-type jihadis took over the Sunni-armed opposition in Iraq and Syria. Speaking at the Royal United Services Institute last week, Dearlove, who headed MI6 from 1999 to 2004, emphasised the significance of Prince Bandar’s words, saying that they constituted “a chilling comment that I remember very well indeed”.
The Boko Haram Bomb Attack Of A Shia Procession Two-Weeks Before The Military Massacre
Two weeks before the Nigerian military cracked down on the Nigerian Islamic Shia-
predominant movement in the December massacre, Boko Haram had just bombed a procession of the same predominant movement, killing 26 of its members in the very same Kaduna.
Boko Haram killed 26 in a bombing of a Shia procession in kaduna on November 26th 2015
The movement leader, now in detention or perhaps killed, had to his peril perhaps, exonerated Boko Haram, accusing members of Nigeria’s security offices and foreign agents as being behind the bomb attacks on the minority Muslims (12% of Nigeria’s Muslim population). It would be his last public statement.
Abubakar Shekau has been told to retire. That’s the good news.
