Zakzakys atrocities are more than you think. 2015 is nt the first time he has constituted a security threat in Nigeria. That's apart from the constant disturbance of peace in zaria city coupled with their impunity. Before this, Zakzakys et al were untouchable by the police. They even beat up a policeman in zaria and nothing hapnd. Ask inhabitants of ABU Congo campus and you'll hear. They nw want to use that mentality on our no1 army officer.
America on the other hand that uses their drones to kill innocentc civilians day by day and you think they care about our justice?

America : injustice to one is injustice to all
Nigeria: if it is not my tribesman /imam/pastor/faction of Islam I don't and we get surprised why we are not moving forward,
in a sane society there ought to be media onslaught about this El Zakzaky issue,irony of it all is that the person under whose rule the injured old man is under detention is going to the ends of the earth trying to save his life and expecting a miracle from God..hmmm

How dare the Americans refuse to sell there weapons to a country that kills its own people? How dare they?
How dare you think like a dunce. Wasn't the Idp bombing a mistake. Was it not this same useless US that bombed innocent civilians in Syria. Abeg swerve

So what can we do about it? Fold our hands and do nothing?

No, of course. First thing is to restructure the country so that we have a functional country. So that Nigerians will start seeing themselves as Nigerians, not as Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa, etc. Then we go from there, and with time and the right policies, we will become productive.
Otherwise we will continue to run in circles, fighting over which ethnic group would control the center in order to have unfettered access to the crude oil wealth. Right now, that is what Nigeria is all about, basically a criminal enterprise.

These people are worse

Which people, the USA? I'm not aware of the US military attacking and killing American citizens. But the Nigerian military routinely kills unarmed Nigerians, with impunity too. In Nigeria, the military are basically above the law.

Tell us the lobby group and tell us when Rex Tillerson visited Emirs and Imam.


Your education is a Big Fail.

Sure.

Check out the 3-weeks travel schedule of Ooni of Ife in US last year.

Check out the trips (with purpose) of Emir Sanusi in Washington DC.

John Kerry arrived in Nigeria on a 2-day visit in 2016. Where did he go? The palace of Sultan of Sokoto. Diplomatic overtures happen for a reason.

Donald Trump's team are still struggling to find their niche. So the issue of Rex Tillerson's visit in irrelevant. When he visits Nigeria, he knows where to go. As long as US and Britain are concerned, a handshake across the Atlantic with Nigeria is with the North. International organizations are lining up with donations for the IDP camps in the North? Is that the only humanitarian crisis in Nigeria?

Name any eze of Igbo extraction, or WIC or Ohaneze leadership that come close to that.

You may choose the dishonorable path of insolence but the facts stare you in the face. Wallowing in ignorance is your prerogative. Knock yourself out.

I am not only talking about the IDP bombing. I am talking about the multiple atrocities committed by the Nigerian army against there fellow Nigerians like the multiple attacks on IPOB members who were protesting or the indiscriminate killings of civilians in the North.

Also, Last time i checked the United States army have not gone into an American city, rounded up civilians and shot them but Nigeria has done multiple times without accountability.

Besides, it's there weapons they can sell it to whomever they want. If you don't like it then go build yours bro.

1. Yu dont knw that he doesnt have access to 'appropriate' healthcare
2. Theres still no case against the govt for his sons being killed. Tell me why.
3. If US does it, you call it 'casualties', they call it collateral damage. If nigeria does it, its human rights violations?
4. Yu dont knw that BH commanders are released with millions. And yu make it seem like they were released for free.

Overall, i'll like to see US response to one group blocking the road for their no1 soldier within the US. Even outside the US, i doubt that it can happen. If it happens, especially in islamic countries, their reporters will celebrate that day.
No group shud jus claim road that they did nt build and cause hardship for their common citizens (that have rights too).
