|Appeal To My Igbo Brothers by realhumanity: 8:40am On Aug 06, 2017|
I am writing this open letter because I am filled with so much pain and fear at the moment about the imminent danger that our people face in the northern part of the country. This is not like any other news we see on social platforms but a real threat to our existence as a people. Do not doubt any of these songs because from my experience staying in the north, the northerners are vicious and are capable of causing grave harm on our people.
I want you all to know that the fire started from Nnamdi Kanu who could have toned down on his hate speeches owing to the fact that he has almost 5 million or more igbos in the north. It is not always about your personal ambition, there are other people who you need to put into consideration. Because of the hate speeches, many of our elders are scampering from pillar to post trying to make peace. This is not because they do not have the money to relocate to the east, but they have other people who are helpless but get their daily bread by going out in the morning and coming back in the evening. Many igbos are into different things in the north, not only trade. They are professionals, bankers, real estate owners and other forms of businesses. Do you just tell them to just leave everything and come back to the east like that? How will you feed them? How long can you sincerely house your brother and his six children plus his wife? There some things you say and you do not analyse it properly, it will eventually bounce back at you.
I would have wanted Nnamdi Kanu to come to Kano or kaduna to see what the igbos in the north have done for themselves and he should immediately call his members to order and fashion a safe way to naturally make them move back to the east. Any decision or action done in haste will eventually be done wrong. Have you seen the houses and hotels the igbos own in Kano, kaduna, niger, katsina, sokoto, etc? You guys should find a way to save our people from two dangers in front of them, genocide and starting all over again. These assets were not gotten in 3days, these things were gotten after 15 to 20 years of hard labour.
To the igbos in the north, I am really sad that you were able to invest so much in this region without recourse that one day you will have to go home. If you had built houses and hotels in less dangerous areas like akwa ibom and calabar, then you will be at peace with yourself that you have property in a safe place. We have warned you all several times that the north is a very porous area to stay, you should have at least come together, build few houses where you guys pay rent and have another accommodation in the east where you can lease it out and regain the money spent on renting your apartment in the north.
I want to stop apportioning blames, so we should come together and look for a lasting solution because we do not want the igbos to be forced into war again because in reality, it is not in our best interest to go to war within 50years. It will be one of the most stupid decisions we will ever make and Nnamdi Kanu will not be forgiven for it. Many of our misfortunes started with the loss of the first civil war and the inability of our leaders to create a blueprint of the best possible ways to recover from those years. I have always told them, nobody can save the igbos except igbos. Nobody cares about us, we should care about ourselves. None of these tribes can stand and fight for us but we always keep sticking our heads in their problems. We need to understand that it is time for us to come back as young minds and stop this nonsense kanu and our leaders are doing, because they are pushing their own personal agenda that makes them look fulfilled in their lives.
If an igbo man is killed in the north, I just do not know how we will all take it because I know the members of IPOB will want to avenge these deaths and kill anything in sight which will sporadically cause the loss of many innocent lives which might just be you. We are on a upward spiral at the moment, there is a political solution to this problem which will profit the igbos more than the way we are pushing it. I am not scared of the northerners, I sincerely do not, I am only scared that my brothers and sisters might die because of what one man said which will not make much sense.
Let us be truthful to ourselves, there was a direct insult on a tribe which you know that these tribe has alot of your people in their domain, that means you are at the mercy of their benevolence when they want to return the favour. The northerners no matter how many of them, have less to lose if they evacuate the east, but we have alot to lose. If you have not been to kano, just come and see what our brothers have done here.
Please we need to reduce these hate speeches because it will not favour anybody when bodies are been shipped to the east.

The federal government should as a matter of urgency step into this issue because without mincing words, the people of igbo extraction will not be killed in their numbers just because a man said one or two things which the northerners have said more times. Nyamiri is now a household name for the igbos and they use it refer to the igbos every time. They call us Nyamiri to our faces and we do not fight nor insult them back in their domain. We pay our taxes in the north and we even pay more than the locals here. Even food vendors pay tax here but theirs do not pay. We will not be targeted because there is nothing in the north that we were given for free. We paid for everything. Even after selectively destroying our businesses through causing spiritual fires at nights, we do not go around killing people. We even help the almajiris by employing them in our shops and businesses so that their lives will have a meaning.
We have never fought anyone in any part of this country but we are always accused of causing problems. It is this northerners that go to their mosques to pass information to kill igbos as part of their lesser jihad. You complain that we make your youth indulge in drugs, no igbo man have ever sold drugs outside sabon gari environs. Your people coming to sabon gari to buy drugs is not an igbo man's problem but your inability to caution your sons and daughters. I know of many of your sons who smoke weed in jakara, kurunmi, in katsina and other places. They bought these drugs from god-knows-where. How are we the problem of the country when your boys are the ones killing our people.

what load of bukum. so despite the progrom of 66 and riots which hve claimed several igbo lives
. an igbo man still went up north to live, not only that started building houses and hotels. forgot completely where he came from. how stupid can a person be. if they like they come back if they like they can stay there. no pity for a foooool. igbos up north are fools that need a repeat of 66 progrom to reset their heads. bear in mind the kaduna declaration has set a precedence and will be used by d north to blackmail the igbo man in future. just because of the foolishness of their people. come to think of it do u know some igbos trading in the north dont hve goods worth half a million yet they risk their lives for what. secondly not all igbos up north own properties just a small percentage. then the question is what are d rest doing there.

I swear you are a goat. I am not mincing words. If you think I have not been to radio biafra to caution people on how they talk, then you are very stupid. When you have so much to lose, you thread carefully than when you have nothing to lose. These small boys without any form of conflict experience will just be yapping anyhow. If you want, I will take you round the north and you will see what these men are saying.

Tell your people to stop giving birth like pigs.. Where will they all go when the eviction from all parts of Nigeria finally comes ehn?
|Re: Appeal To My Igbo Brothers by realhumanity: 9:12am On Aug 06, 2017|
After 1970, many igbos went their separate way to find one thing or the other to do. Some of these people stayed in the north for 10years before they became affluent. There was never a blueprint telling igbos want to do. They did as they pleased because they saw it as a practical solution. If you think you will be able to take it when they start killing us in the north, then I believe you are love lying to yourself than you believe. Except Nnamdi Kanu is trying to use the deaths in the north as a bargaining cheap to cry to the world about biafra.
How many igbos living in the north can you house when they return to the east, kindly estimate.

And also the killing of yoruba woman preaching in the morning. Abi.??

Stay there until they kill u.
Nnamdi has set his records straight.

IPOB miscreants in the north should take note, their fellow IPOB miscreants down the SE would want to trade their lifes and livelihood for their phantom Biafra and they do not give a Bleep about them up north.
Those in the SE feel that those in the north can be sacrificed for Biafra.

I don't want you to see me as someone that is against Biafra, I need it more than anyone but I cannot act as if the lives of millions in the north do not matter. Have you been to sabon gari, nomansland, airport road, etc. The igbos are the only ones living there. I am not even mentioning the ones living in different areas dominated by the hausas. How do you plan to house these people? If you have a plan to feed and keep them until they are back, then I support the eviction. But if you have not made plans, then I see no reason why you are agitating.

Like I said earlier, you are not smart. There are better ways to make these people come back home naturally without losing a dime or still feel like staying in the north but the problem with people is that they prefer the crude ways. I once stayed in the north and I was able to move round knowing the ways the locals behave. I do not stay there again because I have finished my project there and I am back to my base. But when I got there I did not waste time, I mingled with my people and was able to understand them. Your governors do not have any plans for these people when they start returning in droves. There will be a massive IDP camp in various eastern states because these people will come. Many will lose properties which will not favour them. Many will die because of these losses. Do you want to look the other way because you want biafra?
|Re: Appeal To My Igbo Brothers by realhumanity: 9:28am On Aug 06, 2017|
Mr, Nnamdi kanu insulted a full tribe. A tribe you and I know have alot our people staying in their domain. You also know that these people are violent in nature but you continued. Are you serious that if you are a leader, you will not think this through before making such an inciting statement? For goodness sake, these people are illiterates, they do not know any other way to solve problems than to kill. You need to see these people first hand.
|Re: Appeal To My Igbo Brothers by realhumanity: 9:30am On Aug 06, 2017|
Hey, stop insulting my people for crying out loud. We do not give birth like pigs. We have one of the most ordered marriage in the country. We do not marry or give birth anyhow.

Please close your mouth instead of misinformation. So... we should pretend as if we're not marginalized? Since you're from the East, tell me about federal presence in the East.
If Easterners are asked to leave North, they are not trees, they're human and such, should move, simple.

It is just that I am no longer in the north, I would have gone round to take pictures and so that you will see why these men do not want to return home. I am not talking based on what people told me, it is what I saw and I am not mince words, many of these people will not just wake one day and leave them behind. We have practical ways of making them return, if only Nnamdi kanu can adopt it.
|Re: Appeal To My Igbo Brothers by EmeeNaka: 9:35am On Aug 06, 2017|
OP, you may be Igbo but you're dragging Igbos down. The tone of your statements are beggarly.
Igbos want peace, if they're killed in the North, it will lead to irreparable damage of Nigeria but trust me, North is not ready for division. They just want to keep Osinbajo busy.

realhumanity:my brother let call a spade a spade. an igbo man builds a house, hotel, warehouse in the north without building one in the east is a foolish man. by implication it means he doesnt go home to his village. his children dont know where they come from. what will u call such a man. the ones without property up north what is he still doing there. doesnt he hve money if he is up north, has no property, no money, nothing pls what is he doing there. dont pity a fool because he does not know he is a fool. when u see an igbo up north what u see is a fool waiting for his turn to be killed

U people would have still be talking about this comments by now.
But because they were not said igbos."it means nothing".
U people should continue matchin on the truth.
One day it will be anybody turn individually or by tribe.
And people will also step on that very truth u need so badly.

Sentiments aside.. Igbos can't continue living in the North with Northerners who they claim hold them captive, or the West they hate so much.
That's the main idea behind secession if I'm right. To go and form your own country. You don't want anything to do with Hausas and Yorubas again.
You guys have been asked to leave peacefully now (with three months grace). Yet you refuse, claiming you're still Nigerians.
When the thugs and miscreants start unleashing mayhem on Igbos now, you lots will be crying foul. Must you die in the North?
Don't you have a place of origin you can go back to?

The marginalization of the easterners is real but it is not the bone of contention here. The bone of contention here is the lives that might be taken when they start killing people. We did not fair well the last time it happened, how are we going to prevent such from happening.
I am also not saying that the push for the actualisation of biafra should stop but we should stop attacking other ethnic groups. The igbo problem is an igbo problem. If you cannot tell yourselves the truth, then you will not find a solution to your problem.
If we cannot sit down and analyse our present situation carefully and clearly state it, then we are just going to be moving in circles.
