|Politics / The Story Of The Libyans Vs Nigerians by potent5(m): 2:53pm On Jul 08|
---A certain group of terrorists organised themselves for the sole aim of unleashing death on innocent Nigerians.
---The President tried at every given opportunity to convince the world that they are Libyans once armed by Gaddafi, avenging the death of Gaddafi.
---The president began to canvass that the ancestral lands of Nigerians being forcefully taken and given to these "Libyans" who invaded Nigeria.
---The people refused and instead urged the government to arrest and prosecute the Libyans killing them over their own lands.
--The people begged the government to arrest, prosecute, kill or allow them defend themselves against the "Libyans".
--The government warned that anyone who touches any of the "Libyans" will be arrested and prosecuted instead.
---They killed, killed and are killing.
---Each time they killed, a group of herdsmen under the name "Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association" claimed responsibilities for the killings and at every point, they are given platforms to explain why they are killing with an early morning "tea cup".
---The President kept claiming the killers are Libyans, even while the Nigeria herders association claimed responsibilities.
---Five young men ignored the government warning and killed one of the "Libyans" while they were carrying out attack in their community and killed 48 persons. They were arrested, prosecuted and sentenced to death by hanging within a very short period.
---To avoid further attempt to kill the "Libyans", the armed forces of the government invaded the homes of all religious and traditional leaders in search of weapons. They found none. The idea was to dispossess them of all weapons of defence.
---The government went abroad to announce to the world that the only remedy to the killings is that all Nigerians must open up their lands to accommodate them and give unfettered access to their herds to feed on their farms.
---The people stood on their decisions. No going back.
---The government stood on her decisions. No going back.
---The killings continued. The few "Libyans" that were arrested after global cry were tactically released for lack of diligent prosecution. Note, the same government is the body responsible for prosecution.
---The "Libyans" were secretly called, given monetary compensation for their wrong prosecutions. One "height-challenged" Governor from the north couldn't keep his mouth shut. He announced the gesture in pride.
---The "Libyans" were encouraged. This time they bought more sophisticated weapons to kill. They launched several attacks, displaced citizens off their lands, took over those lands and renamed them. As at today, over 52 communities have been captured and renamed by "Libyans".
---There is a need to conquer more territories. They went for more.
---At a goal, the "Libyans" killed over 400 persons. The government spokesmen openly took over their defence. "You can't rustle their cattle, block their pathways and expect them not to kill", they told the world. "Leave your land if you don't want to live under the land", they admonished.
Now the twist:
---The government turned around claiming the killings are sponsored by opposition parties. They insist that they are political killings.
---A certain pastor decided to curse all those behind the killings.
---The opposition accused by the government are screaming "amen" to his prayers but the same government is calling for the arrest and prosecution of the pastor who is cursing "the opposition behind the killings".
---The government is going from one place to another appealing that Nigerians give up their ancestral lands to the "Libyans" and the killers sponsored by "the opposition" if they want to stay alive.
---In the twist, the government has, shamelessly, given us 3 different narratives:
a. The killers are from Libya who took over specific places in Africa to avenge the death of Gaddafi;
b. The herdsmen are killing because they need grazing areas for their herds;
c. The opposition, especially PDP are sponsoring hoodlums to carry out the killings for political reasons.
In its effort to confuse us and the world, the government has ended up confusing itself.
Now tell me why even a coconut head cannot process what's happening in Nigeria.
Anyway, my aim is to tell my story so history will not be twisted when it's needed.

When the alarm was raised, many thought it was false, some were complacent, calling it an ethnic crisis. But bit by bit, the fear became a reality; the subtle attacks which began over a decade ago have seen native communities in Plateau State taken over by invading herders.
The natives, mostly Berom by tribe watched helplessly as their homes were occupied, the people killed and farmlands taken over and in some cases, the original names of the villages changed. They wandered if their children would ever return to their ancestral land. It will be recalled that the immediate past governor of the state, Jonah Jang, a Berom by tribe; the Member representing Riyom/Barkin Ladi in the National Assembly, Istifanus Gyang; the Gbong Gwom Jos, Da Jacob Buba; all Berom Socio-cultural groups especially its umbrella body, Berom Educational and Cultural Organization, BECO and other tribes in Bassa local government area among others had consistently appealed to the Federal Government to tackle land occupation by foreign herders but all entreaties were ignored.
According to a document obtained by Saturday Vanguard, showing the various attacks in the area, over 54 communities have been taken over by the invaders which many of the occupied communities renamed.
The occupied communities include “Rotchun (aka Rafin Acha), Dankum (renamed “Mahanga”), Hywa (renamed”Lugere”), Fass (renamed “Tafawa”), Davwak, Chwelnyap, Lyoho Dakar, and Angwan Dalyop which were all attacked Between September 7 and 10, 2001 with the original inhabitants displaced. Others are, “Janda, attacked on 8th February, 2010; Darin, attacked on 28th April, 2013;, Shong I, Shong II; Rakweng; Dashugu; Diyan-Hei; Maseh (renamed “Lugel”) all attacked on 29th June, 2012. It’s worth noting that it was in this same community that Senator Gyang Dantong and Hon. Gyang Fulani, a legislator representing Barkin Ladi Local Government Area were killed. Also occupied by the invaders are Kampwas; Kasa; Zere; Ninja-Hei; Seh; Nicha; Pwabeduk; Hyai; Kufang; Sharu; Dogo; Ningon; Rantis and Angio which were all sacked and occupied on the 7th of July, 2012. Kachin community was sacked on the 7th of November, 2012. “On the 26th of December, 2014, Shonong community was invaded and sacked, even as the surviving inhabitants had not returned since. So also were Rahol and Chikogo communities. Ranchol was attacked and occupied on the 7th of October, 2013. Nangam was overran on the 30th of April, 2014, as well as Kak and Dajak. Rarin was invaded on 30th August, 2015; Kujei on 2nd February, 2015; Attakar attacked on 14th March, 2014, as well as Nantwa and some parts of Bisichi. “Rahol-Mazat was attacked and occupied on 14th April, 2015; Kai and Luk-Fei on the 19th February, 2014; Mallel, Bel between 8th and 9th of March, 2015. That of Rahei took place on the 3rd of April, 2015; Zim, Jong, Rabuk, Lobiring and Gwara Dadep on the 19th of June, 2015. However, in all these attacks, no Internally Displaced Persons’ Camp was provided for the displaced persons as most of the sacked residents were accommodated by relatives while they found a way of integrating themselves into safer communities where they ran to. Disturbed by this invasion, a youth group, APC Youths Online Forum has appealed to relevant stakeholders to work with Governor Simon Lalong to “reclaim the villages and lands occupied by the herdsmen and hand them over to the natives of the communities”.
On his part, the State Governor, Simon Lalong had done his best to ensure peace in the State and lamented the spate of killings and displacement of settlements saying that his administration would not tolerate land grabbing in any part of the State. According to him, “those fighting, killing people and destroying their settlements with the intention of taking ownership of such places would not be allowed to do so. If you think you can chase people out and grab their land, we as a government would not allow you to own the land. My administration is working out modalities for prosecuting land grabbers to discourage the act.”
