Beyond The News: This Is The Real Cause Of The Orlu Crisis by dumahi(m): 7:46pm On Jan 25, 2021
Let the world be put on notice today that the Federal Government of Nigeria is provoking her own citizens to war. Everyone is reporting that the Eastern Security Network engaged some operatives of the Nigerian military in an open gun battle. But, now, know the real cause that nobody is reporting.

Since the EndSARS protests that rocked the country late 2020, instead of police brutality to reduce in the South-Eastern Nigeria as the Federal Government seemed to promise with the disbandment of SARS, it actually multiplied. Apart from police brutality, there has also been incessant military brutality of unarmed civilians, without any known provocation.

Many of these incidents are not reported in the media. But, to give you an idea of what has been happening, on 8th January 2021, Sahara Reporters carried the news of a young man driving a Lexus car in Orlu and was suddenly shot dead by the men of the Nigerian Police. As usual, the police personnel used tear gas and tried to keep people away so that they wouldn't be able to take photos and videos. Unfortunately for them, someone succeeded in getting the video.

Here Is the report: http://saharareporters.com/2021/01/08/panic-policemen-shoot-motorist-dead-imo

Since then, the youths of Orlu have been terribly angry because every attempt to get justice for the numerous cases of police and military brutality got swept under the carpet. So, naturally, some of them resorted to self-help.

Let it be known that it is impossible to have peace where there is no justice. The Nigerian Government is stoking a very violent fire whose conflagration will soon be uncontrollable.

Now, they are employing excessive force to kill young people whose parents suffered through years to raise. But no one is talking about how they are the ones provoking these youths.

They are everywhere flexing muscles on civilians using the arms paid for from our common treasury. They are also destroying wealth that people built over years. Now, when people get angry and resort to self-help they will begin to sound sanctimonious.

When you people get sense things will get better.There is a right way and a wrong way of doing things.The head of a proscribed group cannot form an arms carrying outfit from abroad.Sense and wisdom is important.

undecided Nigerian military are cowards that are gallant towards unarmed civilians and cowards towards BH and hardcore Niger Delta militants.

Without air cover man to man, gun to gun, BH would decimate our useless military.

We have seen our military we’re slaughtered in their hundreds.

Recently, a JTF commander was killed in Nassarawa, nothing happened, now in Orlu a whole battalion is let loose to go on a killing spree.

Our military are beasts in uniform

No,some youths retaliated by defending themselves against the bully nigerian police.


Then Soldiers were sent to maintain peace,but instead they start doing what they know how to do best,shooting and killing people anyhow.


ESN were alerted which made them come to the rescue of the town.If not Obigbo massacre who have be a child play to compare what would have happen.

I'm I'm not here to discuss my academic pedigree and I'm at present not a one Nigeria person, yorubaland is better off on its own. My point is that the way you guys are going about things, many people will die , mostly ibos and at the end nothing will be achieved.Strategy and a good leader is important but you have neither

many igbos are dieing already even without bearing arms.The Nigerian government sees the SE as a conquered and easily dominated region,that's why we have hundreds of checkpoints allover the region.Thats why the security apparatus in the SE runs an extorting ring in the region.
And frankly, peeps are getting fed up- even before ESN ,many villages in the SE had setup vigilantes to keep off herdsmen and kidnappers- even my village did so.We had to build gates across our roads and widen bush tracks -yet there is a military outpost very close to us.
So the question is,why is the president reticent to handle that issue?
If Dave umahi hadn't scuttled the proposed SE security outfit,ESN wouldn't have risen. Hope God sees us through ,but frankly Nigeria is in a very bad place.
In days to come,we will know truly what happened in orlu

I think Ibos need a lessons from Eritreans who fought Ethiopia for 30 years before getting independence.Is Kanu prepared to wait that long?To suceed in your quest ,your political leaders in the. Region must look for local and foreign allies to back your bid.

To loose a war to an enemy once ,is a great serback to loose twice ,the people will be enslaved forever.

War is never fought by emotions but with common sense,strategy,planning,allies,funding,food banks etc.Does the South East have resources to part with foreign backers incase South South decides to go their own way in the struggle?

You must know your enemies weakness before you can suceed against them.

I ask You and ESN,what is your war strategy,do you think a war is won by revealing all your plans on social media or by mouth?

Dont start a war you are not prepared for because if your enemy wins you in the battle,you will be worst off and be under perpetual slavery.

Ibos must never showcase everything on social media.How many times do you see fulani revealing their plans online?They are united and listen to each others divergent views to prepare against other tribes.

Unity is Fulani’s greatest strength,if you want to control fulani,you must break their unity first,that is Ibos major challenge.

Britain your colonial master is another factor,are they willing to let Ibos go?

Who are the Ibo historical and present allies in Nigeria and Africa as a continent?Kanu destroy that with his mouth by creating unnecessary enemies.

First step To suceed in your struggle,you need to replace your current political leaders with IPOB members or those who support your cause through the ballot box come 2023.

amuwo1980:

If Yorubas are not normal human beings,how come the Ibos can live in their land in peace?

Online war is different from reality but to be honest Iboa should stop pokenosing into Yoruba. Affairs.

Every nation must paddle his own canoe.
Biafrans should face their own struggle and let the Yorubas be,we dont need permission from any tribe to advise or decide our affairs.

Yoruba nation throughher leaders will fecide what is best for her citizens(The Yorubas)

Ibos should desist from attacking TINUBU or any yoruba leaders,They are Yoruba leaders not Ibos.It is wrong for my neighbour’s child to come to my house to take pleasure in criticising my father all the time.We will surely fight one day.

Another is the Yoruba muslims,they belong to the fabric of Yoruba society.Traditionalists,Muslims and christians are brothers and sisters in our society so we can never fight no matter what.MURIC doesnt represent Yoruba muslims.He represents his pay masters.

Face your Eastern leaders and desist from Yoruba matter.All Ethnic nation in Nigeria are victims of colonial Britain Agenda.No one should blame the other for Nigeria’s woes.
