Will The Yorubas Be Justified To Clamour For Secession Just Because Of This One by DonXavi(m): 6:20pm On Oct 09, 2015
So one single kidnap of an individual, Afenifere started
threatening secession
I no fit shout!
So what would Igbo's do? A people that faced extinction. A
people that have been a target of massacre which preceded
independent NIGERIA. I am talking as far back as 1945 in
Jos and 1953 in Kano, over an incident that does not even
concern us at the legislative house.
The climax of it is just because some igbo army officers in
collabo with their yoruba allies, sat and carried out a coup,
innocent Igbos were massacred for that, EFULEFUS
inclusive.
Nowadays when the history of the igbo killings is being told,
mischievous people start from 1966. The man in the picture
had to kill himself in front of the UN building while protesting
igbo killing. Someone had to name his child Biafra Wong
also in protest.
The war is over but Igbos are still targets of massacre
across the country.
Some examples
v Jos 1945 v Kano genocide 1953
v 1966 pogroms- over 50, 000 killed
v 1967-70 – over 2,000,0000 killed during the bloody civil
war
v Kano 1980
v Maiduguri 1982
v Jimeta 1984
v Gombe 1985
v. Zaria 1987
v Kaduna & Kafanchan 1991
v Bauchi & Katsina 1991
v Kano 1991
v Zangon-Kataf 1992
v Funtua 1993
v Kano 1994
v Kaduna 2000
v Kaduna 2001
v Maiduguri 2001
v Kaduna 2002
v Beheading of Gideon Akaluka in December of 1996 in
Kano
v Saint Moritz killed December 2001
v Post April 2011 Presidential Election: 10 youth-corps men
& women and numerous citizens murdered because a
Christian Southerner was elected.
v Jos Christmas Eve 2010
v Madalla Christmas
Apart from killings, just a quick visits to YOUTUBE shows
Sir Ahmadu Bello telling a white man that they would rather
give job to a foreigner than give to an igbo man if there is no
Northerner qualified for it. Yet we are one NIGERIA.
There have been several things said on the floor of
legislative Northern Assembly against the Igbos, yet we are
still here and even abused and directed on how we should
vote in One NIGERIA. We have even faced deportation.
Below is an extract from the proceedings of the Northern
Region House of Assembly between February and March
1964, less than four years after Nigeria’s independence
from the British.
Mallam Muhammadu Mustapha Mande Gyan:
On the allocation of plots to Ibos or allocation of stalls, I
would like to advise the Minister that these people know
how to make money, and we do not know the way and
manner of getting about this business. We do not want Ibos
to be allocated with plots. I do not want them to be given
plots...
Mallam Bashari Umaru:
I would like (you), as a Minister of Land and Survey, to
revoke forthwith all Certificates of Occupancy from the
hands of the Ibos resident in the Region... (Applause)
Mr. A. A. Agogede:
I’m very glad that we are in a Moslem country, and the
government of Northern Nigeria allowed some few
Christians in the region to enjoy themselves according to the
belief of their religion, but building of hotels should be taken
away from the Igbos, and even if we find some Christians
who are interested in building hotels and do not have money
to do so, the government should aid them, instead of
allowing Ibos to continue with their hotels.
Dr. Iya Abubakar (Special Member, Lecturer, Ahmadu Bello
University, Zaria):
I am one of the strong believers in Nigerian unity, and I have
hoped for our having a united Nigeria, but certainly if the
present state of affairs continues, I hope the government will
investigate first the desirability and secondly the possibility
of extending Northernisation policy to the petty traders.
(Applause)
Mallam Mukhtar Bello:
I would like to say something very important, that the
Minister should take my appeal to the Federal Government
about the Igbos in the post office. I wish the numbers of
these Igbos be reduced…. There are too many of them in the
North. They are like sardines and 1 think they are just too
dangerous to the Region.
Mallam Ibrahim Musa:
Mr. Chairman, Sir. Well first and foremost, what I have to
say before this Hon. House is that we should send a
delegation to meet our Hon. Premier to move a motion in
this very Budget Session that all the Ibos working in the Civil
Service of Northern Nigeria, including the native authorities,
whether they are contractors or not, should be repatriated at
once...
Mallam Bashari Umaru:
There should be no contracts either from the government,
native authorities, or private enterprises given to Ibo
contractors (Government Bench: Good talk and shouts of
“Fire the Southerners”). Again, Mr. Chairman, the foreign
firms too should be given time limit to replace all Ibo in their
firms by some other people.
The Premier (Alhaji the Hon. Sir Ahmadu Bello, K.B.E.,
Sardauna of Sokoto):
It is my most earnest desire that every post in the region,
however small it is, be filled by a Northerner (Applause)
Alhaji Usman Liman:
What brought the Ibos into this region? They were here
since the colonial days. Had it not been for the colonial rule,
there would hardly have been any Ibo in this region. Now
that there is no colonial rule, the Ibos should go back to their
region. There should be no hesitation about the matter. Mr.
Chairman, North is for Northerners, East for Easterners,
West for Westerners, and the Federation is for us all.
(Applause)
The Minister of Land and Survey (Alhaji the Hon. Ibrahim
Musa Cashash, O.B.E.):
Mr. Chairman. Sir, I do not like to take up much of the time
of this House in making explanations, but I would like to
assure members that having heard their demands about
Ibos holding land in Northern Nigeria, my ministry will do all
it can to see that the demands of members are met. How to
do this, when to do it, al1 these should not be disclosed. In
due course, you will all see what will happen. (Applause)
Culled from M. O. Onyenakeya, Igbos in Nigerian Politics,
pp.30-32
While I agree that FULANI herdsmen are annoying and are
murderers, we will not divide because you said so. We will
divide because we now understand we are totally different
from one another not because you want division so Pls, can
we have a moment of silence. Even though self
determination is not treason, Nobody is going
anywhere...........not now.
