IBB Denies Link with Alleged Plan to Attack Christians
From Chuks Okocha in Abuja, 09.25.2010
Former Military President and one of the foremost presidential aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), General Ibrahim Babangida has raised alarm that he is being blackmailed by certain elements who are alleging that he is sponsoring sectarian crisis where Muslims are encouraged to attack Christians.
According to a statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity of General Babangida’s Presidential Campaign, Prince Kassim Afegbua, the former military president is being associated with the restiveness in Jos and Kaduna, where Muslims are allegedly being asked to attack Christians.
Babangida said in the statement that text messages are being sent to several persons alleging that he is the mastermind of the plot by Muslims to attack Christians in some northern.
The former military president denied having anything to do with the crisis and accused his detractors of blackmailing him to earn some cheap political points.
The statement read in part: “Our attention has been drawn to a very damaging, spurious and orchestrated text messages being circulated by people who are desperate to blackmail our presidential aspirant, General Ibrahim Babangida linking him to a purported attempt by Muslims to attack Christians in the north.
“To all intents and purposes, this latest blackmail is not only wicked and ill conceived, but further goes to show how desperate politicians could go to blackmail people. No matter the motive, it is conceived in bad taste and should be condemned in all its ramifications.
“General Babangida has been in the forefront of those crusaders with belief in religious harmony in the country. As a president, he was able to reopen bilateral relations with Israel which paved the way for our Christian brothers and sisters to go on Holy Pilgrimage.
“He neither discriminate against Christians nor does he engage in anything that tends to undermine the secularity of the nation. For anybody, for whatever motivation to link him with such dastardly intention of creating bad blood among Christians and Muslims is a clear cut attempt to blackmail him to dim his soaring popularity in the build up to the 2011 general elections. We abhor this ill conceived intention in its entirety,” the statement noted.

The people he sponsors have openly threatened mayhem and uprising that will shake the unity of the nation if he doesn't win the PDP ticket.
Therefore, he is the first suspect when intelligence reports show that miscreants in the North are building up arms.

Why is IBB always talking tough but when the actual time to stand up to the talk comes, he will step aside? IBB why?

Which is a silly move because doing that still isn't going to put him into presidency or any of his allies.Instead, now that Jonny Boy has checked the military, the northerners rioting will only lead to the occupation of troops in northern land for a very long time.

Do you know how much blood that man has waded through? If he openly threatens the country, because he thinks he's some bigshot untouchable, then state security should be on him, pronto! Let him know that times are changing; jail awaits IBB.

When it comes to the Evil 1 dont ever say never. Some1 that killed his best friend and his step son can do anything to water his desperation. He is fast out-living the free live-gift of freedom he is enjoying.
ferari09 is IBB and IBB is a looser (intuitive logic)

I have no doubt that a highly placed official(s) sponsors these so-called religious/ethnic rioters in our country, because depsite many unwarranted attacks on christians/Igbos/Southerners in many northern cities since the 1960s, nobody has ever been convicted, and executed according to the laws of our land.

Since IBB is not enjoying his 50-bedroom any longer, soon a place will be issued him in the KIRIKIRI yard.
