Python Dance In Umuahia: Senate South-East Caucus Cautions Military by mesoprogress(m): 3:58am On Sep 13
The South-East Caucus in the Senate on Tuesday criticised the ongoing military campaign in the south-eastern states codenamed Operation Python Dance.

The caucus lamented military invasion of remote villages around Umuahia, the Abia State capital, particularly the alleged incursion into the country home of the Independent Peoples of Biafra leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Chairman of the Senate South-East Caucus, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, in a statement, stated that such actions suggested willful personalisation of the operation and deliberate abuse of the people’s fundamental rights.


He said the caucus was sad that the military chose a time when the caucus had engaged the IPOB leadership and extracted commitment from them that their agitations would be strictly non-violent and in conformity with international best practices.

Abaribe said, “We had hoped that our ongoing engagement with the group would be given a chance but here we are with a hurried military action deep into a highly populated area with high propensity for casualty, which occurrence would rather escalate the already tense situation.

“It is more worrisome that military operation, ‘Python Dance 2,’ restricted to the South-East in a peace time, has no doubt fouled the environment and sent strong signal that the region is under siege, which should not be so in a democracy.

“We, therefore, urge extreme caution and advise the military to de-escalate the situation and choose the best operational modus that will not only guaranty the safety of Nigerians but also enhance national unity.

“Nigeria is not at war, people are only exercising their constitutional and universally guaranteed rights, so far they are carrying on in a manner that has never given room to violence which could warrant a wholesale military expedition.”

President Buhari is taunting the Eastern region. There will be a time for payment. it may take decades but there must be an effective revenge. Buhari's action is vindictive and has a lot to do with old politics prior to 2015 election. In future, there will be an ethnic group or region that will bear the consequences of his action.
I also consider the actions of Nnamdi KANU as irrational and a tomfoolery. He has no understanding of the works of time. IPOB should therefore take whatever they get.

Statement like this makes me tend to believe the notion that the Igbos either have no leaders of thought or the leaders lack the Will to offer directions to the followers.

Grievous civil disturbance like this shouldn't be seen from the perception of politics or parochialism.
What is expected from political leaders in the region should be to preach persuasive obedience to civil responsibility, and not to play to the galary.

The situation is getting more interesting by the day. Buhari is shooting himself on the foot. He is giving this man more relevance by the day and gaining more sympathisers. Once the igbo faction in Senate start beating the succession drum just know that it is over.

Interesting

I don't agree with politicians, but agree with Senators of Southeast caucus. The series of meetings which were held with Nnamdi Kalu and other leaders of IPOB and Ohaneze was making gentle progress.

Then this Government chose to declare Operation Python Dance II. They think this would favour them, but they just messed up.

You don't block movement of individual(s) from leaving their home or meeting people without Court Order; to do so is authoritarian.

FG, through ill-advise decisions, had made a number of Middle-class, Upper class individuals to be more sympathetic to the cause for Biafra.

FG, a large number of SouthEast indigenous people(both young and old) now support Biafra more.

FG, when you use fear and intimidation, people would respond.

The FG has made a big mistake.

Arresting or killing Nnamdi KANU will not stop the agitation. Hope the Army are ready to fight guerilla warfare when they continue pushing these guys.

yes! It is pay back time for the Igbo. What you wish others is what you get. When Jonathan Good luck was in power, the Igbo held sway, they were in strategic position in power, from the chief of army staff to minister of finance, from petroleum to aviation, from stock exchange director to energy. Every complaint by other Nigerians were brushed aside by the popular axion:" we are only writing the wrong of the past".
The Igbo were at the forefront of pushing Jonathan in declaring a state of emergency in the three northeastern states: borno, Adamawa and yobe. Chief of army staff, ihiejerika, an Igbo man precised over the whole massacre of over two thousand people at baga, with the pretext of crushing book haram. General shuwa was diabolically killed, a death book haram never claimed responsibility, an attack on buhari, book haram never claimed responsibility. All these ipob agitation is an attempt by Igbo to cover up their past atrocities. Unfortunately for them, they dealing with hausa-Fulani, an ethnic group that never forget.in fact they trained to remember.
As long as Nigeria continues to use naira, Igbo can never rule Nigeria because naira simply mean NEVER ALLOW IGBO RULE AGAIN.

Your problem is you lack an understanding of democracy and the rule of law

Get it into your cocoanut head

Ipob has a right to self determination just like anyone else so long as they do so in a peaceful manner

Buhari is pushing Ipob over the edge

If IPOB engages in gorilla bomb campaigns in Lagos and Abuja what will Buhari do?

Buhari should learn to be a leader, at this moment he is a petty tyrant

Ipob miscreants are lucky Buhari is ruling in his old age, and old age normally come with maturity.
He's too lenient with those miscreants but as expected he has seen it all as an old man. And also knowing that the agitation is leading to nowhere he's not perturbed.

Typical of Ipob online chest beaters, go and comfort your bros cheesy

Cry cry baby. Your prayers or curses don't have any effect on PMB or anyone else for that matter. If it was by your wish and curse, PMB would have been dead and burried by now. grin

Cry and wail. Curse and abuse. No amount of any of those acts of frustration from you enemies of the state changes anything. You urged them on and even praised them. So, face the might of the FG. You can even join the idiots and Pigs of Biafra in their pursuit of destruction if you like, na u sabi.
