|Politics / Imo: Ebubeagu, Police, Parade 8 Innocent Youths Attending Festival, As ESN - Pic by gidgiddy: 3:04pm On Aug 12|
Imo state police command had on Monday paraded eight persons it claimed attacked Agwa Police Station on Saturday.
The command said the persons suspected to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its militia affiliate, Eastern Security Network (ESN) killed four gallant police officers.
Mike Abattam, the public relations officer of command in a statement on Monday said the Commissioner of Police, Imo State Command, CP Mohammed Ahmed, after on spot assessment of the incident immediately, directed the Command’s tactical teams to commence a detailed investigation to unravel the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
“The Command’s tactical teams, on the 06/8/2022 at about 0300hrs, after a diligent gathering of credible intelligence, raided some identified criminal hideouts located between Agwa and Izombe communities in Oguta Local Government Area of Imo State, where the hoodlums, on sighting police operatives engaged them in a gun duel, in an attempt to escape arrest.
“They were overwhelmed by the superior firepower of the operatives.
“While some suspects escaped, eight persons were arrested. They include the following: – Obioma Chibuike ‘m’ age 18 years, Achazie Chidiebere ‘m’ age 22 years, Onyedikachi Nwadike ‘m’ aged 19 years, Anayo Onyemere ‘m’ aged 51 years, Ifeanyi Mboyi ‘m’ aged 26 years, Chukwudi Onyeausi ‘m’ aged 29 years, Obodo Promise ‘m’ aged 17 years, Ifeobu Ebubechi ‘m’ aged 22 years.
“On the spot enquiry revealed that all the arrested suspects were natives of Agwa and Izombe communities respectively.
“Their weapons were recovered when their hideouts were searched, they include; one pump action gun, two locally made guns, six cutlasses, one Biafran flag, eight live cartridges, eight expended cartridges and one masquerade apparel.
“On their way out of the hoodlums’ hideouts, one of the overzealous suspects, Ifeanyi Mboyi attempted escaping from the lawful custody of the operatives and was swiftly demobilized by the ever gallant police operatives.
“The suspect sustained bullet injury on his left leg and was taken to Federal Medical Center Owerri, Imo State, where he is undergoing treatment and is in a stable condition.
[b]But a community leader in Izombe, Emeka Onwuegbu said the people paraded were arrested while attending the annual Okorosha Festival.
He said that Izombe, which was a peaceful and bobbling Oil Community has been turned into a battlefield.
According to him, “Our youths are being incarcerated and killed, because people want to occupy political positions by fire by force. Innocent young men are shot at, arrested, and branded Criminals, Bandits, ESN, IPOB, Terrorists, etc.
“The community was in a celebration mood, getting ready to host their friends and invitees to the final outing of their Okorosha Festival.
“Somebody perceived that a political opponent may be coming to celebrate with his supporters from the town, and the best he could do was to bring in the Ebubeagu Militia, to create a crisis-like situation, wreck some havoc, and then heap it on the visitor.
“The general public should therefore note that what happened in Izombe on the 6th and 7th of August were purely the handiwork of Ebubeagu, their agents, and other forces loyal to the government at the State. The arrests made were to cover up their failed wicked plots. None of those arrested has any record of criminality. Those whose houses, shops, vehicles, and other property were set ablaze are just victims of circumstance.
He blamed politicians loyal to Hope Uzodimma for stoking crisis in the community.
“You cannot use intimidation to coerce anybody into supporting your aspiration, just because you think it is your right for them to support you. It does not work that way, and will never work”.[/b]
|Politics / Re: Anambra Receives N268.2 Million First Oil Allocation As Oil Producing State by gidgiddy: 2:53pm On Aug 12|
That lie has been told many times in over 50 years, but it is not true. At no time did Ironsi abolish the 4 Regions he inherited and at no time did he introduce unitary rule. All 4 Regions had resource control and revenue sharing formular agreed at independence, right up to the day Ironsi died
The person who actually introduced unitary rule was Gowon. It was Gowon who came in after Ironsi and enacted Decree 14 of 1967, which abolished all 4 Regions he inherited from Ironsi, replaced them with 12 States( or 12 units) and also abolished the revenue sharing, which introduced unitary system
This is one of the reasons Nigerian history is not taught, so people will not know the truth

That is still daylight robbery no matter how you look at it. Where have you heard that someone receives less than others a share of his own money?
So you give the owner of the resources 13% first. then you share the other 87% between the 3 tirs of government? Why should the federal take more than me?
Can you imagine if you had to pay 51% of your own salary to federal government as tax?
|Politics / Re: Anambra Receives N268.2 Million First Oil Allocation As Oil Producing State by gidgiddy: 2:14pm On Aug 12|
Thats not how things work in a federal system or a federation. Federation is marked by 'resource control', meaning that the federating units take the bulk of whatever is realised on their land and pays the federal government at the centre an agreed tax
Nobody on earth will join a system where 87% of his money is "shared"

The injustice Nigeria knows no bounds.
You produce oil, the federal government takes a whopping 87% and gives the owners of the resources 13%. That is daylight robbery!
When you ask why, they will say it is because of "one Nigeria"

|Politics / If Nigeria Was A Sane Country, Nobody Would Be Thinking About Voting PDP Or APC by gidgiddy: 10:06am On Aug 11|
In most advanced countries, if a political party in power disappoints, it is thrown out of power and replaced with something new. If a political power disappoints badly, not only is it thrown out of power, the electorate will not allow it return to power for a long time, if ever.
Its incredible that after 16 disastrous years of PDP and almost 8 years of total failure by APC, anyone is still talking about voting for either of these two parties
There are other parties out there that have not had a chance to serve, such as YPP, AAC, SDP, PRP, LP, ADC, AP to mention a few
So it beggars belief that anyone would leave all the political parties out there that are yet to be tested, and go for PDP and APC that have monumentally failed everyone since 1999

|Politics / The Person Most Likely To Win The Presidential Race Is Atiku by gidgiddy: 6:29pm On Aug 10|
Theres no difference between PDP and APC, both are as bad as they come. Both parties are disastrous. However, elections will hold and there can only be one winner.
Peter Obi: Is a good candidate but has zero chance of winning any state in the North. It is impossible to win the Presidency without winning any of the 19 states in the North. However, Peter Obi will do well in the South/South and South East, may be even Lagos.
Bola Tinubu: will do well in the South West, he has zero chance of winning any State in the South East and South/South. Most people in the South East dont like him anyway. His entire hope of winning is if APC controlled States in the North go for him, but the Atiku factor looms large over that
Atiku Abubakar: Atiku Abubakar seems most likely to win the Presidency. I dont think Atiku will win any State in the South West due to the Bola Tinubu factor. He is most likely to win some States in the South/South and South East, but his strength is in the North. Atiku is still a very influential man in the North and I dont see anyone beating him there. The North are now the kingmakers in this election and the chances of them abandoning their own to go fir a Yoruba or Igbo man is remote
With this, I predict that the eventual winner of the 2023 Presidential election will be Atiku Abubakar

|Politics / Re: Has Nigeria's Unity Been Worth The Millions Of Lives Lost In The Civil War? by gidgiddy: 1:02pm On Aug 10|
What I never understood about characters like the above is that they claim they are worried Igbos will dominate the minorities and steal their resources
The same watched and did nothing for more than 50 years after as the Northerners dominated them and stole all their resources.
They said that Ironsi's decree 34 was their problem, despite the decree no touching the borders of the 4 Regions nor resource control, but they watched and did nothing as Gowon used Decree 14 to abolish all 4 Regions as well as resource control, create states and perpetuate 'divide and rule'
Today, all the high offices in NNPC are staffed by Northerners and over 80% of Oil blocks in the so called Niger Delta are owned by Northerners.
Laugh no go kill me lol
|Politics / Re: Has Nigeria's Unity Been Worth The Millions Of Lives Lost In The Civil War? by gidgiddy: 12:23pm On Aug 10|
Lets stick to the topic of the day. Has Nigeria's unity been worth the millions of lives lost in the war to keep its unity?
|Politics / Re: OBI Can’t Win… by gidgiddy: 11:20am On Aug 10|
If Presidential elections were only for who will win, only one person would be required to run

It is very unfortunate that after killing millions to keep Nigeria together, Nigeria is still no where over 50 years on. Makes you wonder what it was all for
|Politics / Re: Has Nigeria's Unity Been Worth The Millions Of Lives Lost In The Civil War? by gidgiddy: 9:51am On Aug 10|
Thats to show you that Nigeria is already dead, no matter who wins the elections. Bandits may even have overrun Abuja by the time of elections
|Politics / Re: Has Nigeria's Unity Been Worth The Millions Of Lives Lost In The Civil War? by gidgiddy: 9:32am On Aug 10|
You talk like you dont live in Nigeria. The entire insecurity in Igbo land is not up what is happening in Buhari's own home state of Katsina where Governor Masari is crying every day for his people to defend themselves and bandits are controlling different areas. 200 people killed in Zamfara, 80 killed in Danko-Wasago in Kebbi State, 78 killed by Fulani herdsmen in Logo, Benue, 33 murdered in Southern Kaduna. If you hear of what is happening in Taraba, Nasarawa and Niger, you will cry. The entire North has become bandit land
The South East is very peaceful compared to the North. There may the occasional scuffle between gunmen and the security forces, but that happens everywhere
|Politics / Has Nigeria's Unity Been Worth The Millions Of Lives Lost In The Civil War? by gidgiddy: 9:00am On Aug 10|
In 1967, three things happend that led Nigeria to civil war :-
1. The massacre of thousands of Igbos all over Nigeria, particularly in the North
2. The breaking of the Aburi agreement Ojukwu and Gowon signed in Ghana, by Gowon himself, which led to the third point
3. The declaration of Biafra by Ojukwu
The civil war that followed was brutal, my father fought in it as a Biafran soldier for three years. At the end of the war, the unity of Nigeria was restored, at the cost of between one and three million lives.
But has the unity of Nigeria been worth the millions lives lost in the war?
I asked my father this same question and he looked me said that when he was in the trenches fighting as a Biafran Soldier, he would sometimes turn on his Radio on at night when it was calm, and hear Gowon and other Nigerian leaders saying-
"Nigeria is indivisible"
"Our strength is in our diversity"
"We will be one great nation if we stay together"
"We have no other country but Nigeria"
"Those who want Nigeria to break up at the real enemy"
He said that sadly, over 50 years since the war ended, he is still hearing the same words from Nigerian leaders, including Gowon who is still alive, in their desperate bid to promote the unity of Nigeria, and that should tell me all I need to know
