Videos of Fulanis Killed in Igangan Today During Retaliatory Attack
The Fulanis cowardly came in the shadow of the night to Igangan, they were able to carry out attack but the youth of Igangan mobilized themselves to stop and drop some of the coward killers.
These are the some of them caught and killed while some of them escaped and ran away before the youth could mobilize themselves.
Makinde should rise up now and stand his ground now in Oyo State because this is an affront on us as Yorubas and it is now time to act.

As usual, the children of hate won’t stop hating.
So the OP carried drone camera and hurriedly went to the rice farm to take the drone video and rush back to Nairaland to showcase it within few minute because one Anambla man uploaded his.
Let me give you more bad news, this is just one of the 8 huge farms ongoing and I heard it is intended to be 10 (ten).
Save your tears for later coz you still have more to wail about!

Igbos were killed for their greed and betrayal of their fellow citizens.
In the history of Nigeria politics, an Igbo man have never gotten a vote margin greater than a Yoruba man in the presidential elections.
—Awolowo trashed Azikwe twice (1979 & 1983) by vote margin.
—Obasanjo trashed Ojukwu.
The only equal of Yorubas in Nigeria is the North, and when we reach the bridge we will cross it.
Igbo should first try to beat the minorities achievements in politics before thinking of dueling with the superior Yorubas.

But a thousand+ igbos were killed in the North for the Political sins of a few.
Buhari sent Ekwueme to prison too remember?
Yoruba laughed at the end, Obasanjo was a result of the Abiola issue. But the Igbos have been perpetually placed in the confines of a NOBODY in politics.
Almost 60 decades of servitude to their Fulani master without a chance to lead.

Yorubas have always stood their ground either in central government or in opposition. We have always held our heads high and 2023 will not be different.
However Igbos have been slaves that have been trampled on by virtually all tribes in Nigeria since 1959. They have always played second fiddle to any alliance they enter into without no option to rule as true sons of the nation.
Azikwe did it and was discarded like a used menstrual pad.
The dishonorable Ojukwu even campaigned openly for Shagari, a Fulani man that ought to be his sworn enemy going by the fact that the civil war just ended 13 years before. He also went live on TV and said what the Igbo want is presidency. Ojukwu clamoring for Igbo presidency as at 1983 like a true slave.
However since then, his sibilings have been trapped as slaves in Nigeria and they’ve been begging for either Referendum, presidency, regional govt, or Biafra like toddlers.
One thing you fail to understand is that Yorubas have learnt from the political miscalculation of Awolowo where he made sure he did not align with the Northerners in politics till his demise. We will make sure we never leave the alliance with the North (That we tried in 2015) until Nigeria breaks up.
The igbos will be repaid in full for their treachery over the years and their betrayal to the southern hegemony.

Bro I think our main problem is context. That the Eastern minorities are not part of Biafra is not my argument. The argument is that the minorities indigenous lands included in Biafra host most of the resources and they are very important to Biafra having the ability to stand alone in the first place. I showed you the Biafran Sun newspaper to show you that Ojukwu relied so much on the crude oil and the sea access most of which are domiciled in the minorities land of that Biafra.
This thread is about some southern minorities telling the Igbos to stop disrespecting them and we can link it to the issue of Kanu wanting to annex them into another Biafra. Some Igbos always say its borne out of true brotherhood and that the minorities tribe are nobody (sometimes using demeaning words like not intelligent enough to qualify them). I just showed you their importance and why they always come up anytime Kanu is trying to talk about Biafra. Imagine all those crude oil and seas are in the Igbo core states, do you think the Igbos will give a damn about them?
Also there are lot of instances where the Igbos committed atrocities against the minorities during the Biafran war. Some men of the Ikun clan in Biase Local government in Cross River were suspected of collaborating with the Nigerian soldiers, and the Biafrans arrested, looted, raped, and committed other atrocities in Ikun land.
What about the Ibibio where some men were beaten to death in April 2, 1968 as reported by William Norris of the London Times. The Ibibios (old and young men) were suspected of collaborating with the advancing Nigeria troops and were frog-marched across an open space while the people attacked them with sticks and clubs.
Or what about in Asang town in Enyong where four hundred people were carried away by the Biafran soldiers to an unknown destination and never seen again. The Biafrans soldiers also attacked Attan Onoyon in the same Enyong where they burnt down the place and killed many people. This account was made by B. J. Ikpeme, who was a member of a minority group and a rtd senior medical officer in the then Eastern Region.
There are numerous account of Biafran attrocities against those of the minorities (I have them with me and ready to debate this anytime). So whenever you are trying to give the narrative that ALL tribes within the Biafra enclave gave their 100% loyalty to Ojukwu, remember lot of other people that had dissenting opinions that were killed by the Igbos.
I think I should rest on this thread for now. I am getting bored of all this arguments.

pazienza:I am not done with you yet. Let me show you why I made mention of the fact that Oil was motivation for the war. Below is a paper from the Biafra Sun News Paper in May 30 1967. This is the place where Ojukwu Indicated that Biafra Crude Oil production output stood at 364,000 barrels a day. Do the math for the calculation of what a barrel sells for then and multiply by the barrel per day.
He made mention of Biafra having a port of international repute- Port Harcourt Bonny Bar which is Biafra oil loading base and he mentioned that it was dregged to enable it take ocean going vessels.
I am just using this to justify my earlier assertion of the Oil and Seaport as being a major player in any Biafra agenda either in 1967 or in the future. The minorities and their land are very important in Biafra and without them Biafra as an entity will not reach its potential. That is why Ojukwu and Kanu both tried and trying to make sure they are added to Biafra.

Lol you are playing a game of Gowon released Awolowo with a whole me? Anyway let me cure your ignorance just this one time.
Below is the timeline of events that happened in Awo release context:
—Awolowo was imprisoned in 1963.
—Ironsi became head of state January 17, 1966
— Ojuku was appointed governor January 17, 1966
— Ironsi was assassinated July 29, 1966
— Gowon took power in August 1, 1966
— Awolowo was released August 3, 1966
Below are the independent sources that captured the news of Gowon releasing Awo:
-NYT: American newspaper
-The Guardian: British newspaper
-Reuters: British newspaper
-Britishpathe: British picture/videos
Let me give you an exerpts from the Papers:
—Aug 2nd 1966 – Possibly a consensus to southern opinion was Colonel Gowon’s promise to look into the early release of political prisoners. The most important of these is Chief Awolowo, the popular Yoruba leader who was imprisoned for 10 years in 1962 for treasonable Felony. He was a campaigner against Northern domination in the old regime and his release would not be popular in the North.
—August 3rd 1966 – On his part, Colonel Gowon’s decision to release so controversial a southern politician Chief Awolowo seems to show a desperate need to placate Southern opinion. At independence, when the Northern people’s congress shared power with the largely Ibo National Council of Nigerian Citizens, the odd men out were the Yorubas of the west. Their discontent led to the 1962 crisis in which the Yoruba leader, Chief Awolowo was imprisoned for Treason.
—August 3rd 1966 – The new Nigerian regime formed Yesterday by Lieutenant Colonel Gowon, the Army chief of Staff, after an army mutiny, today announced the release of leading civilian political prisoners, including chief Awolowo and Chief Enahoro. The other four political prisoners whose release was announced today were named Lateef Jakande, Samuel Onitiri, Sunday Ebiotoma, and Micheal Omishade.
—August 4th 1966 - Chief Awolowo and Anthony Enahoro today promised to help Lieutenant Colonel Gowon, leader of the new Nigeria military regime in Nigeria, in any way that would bring peace to the country. Rumors continued to circulate in Lagos that the former Head of State Major-General Ironsi, had been killed by the rebels. General Ironsi was kidnapped last Friday and his whereabouts are unknown.
The video below showed when Awolowo went to meet Gowon in his office in Lagos after being flown from Calabar Prison and driven by the convoy to meet Gowon. You can see the statements from one of the New York Times supporting the Video coz it describes the situation perfectly even when the video is from Britishpathe with affilation to Reuters.
I won't reply you again except if you can provide me one source that backed your argument that Ojukwu release Awolowo. Don't mention Ojukwu words here just like I did not mention Gowon word. I trust independent sources.

pazienza:Nope. I never created the impression that the SS'ners are feeding the Igbos. What I just did was to correct your systematic claim of Igbos having all the Palm oil on their land. You will see I made no mention of Coal in my argument.
The report you posted was more about ENDC effort to improve Eastern region palm oil export which concentrated more on places with more Empty lands with room for improvement of plantations. Owerri and Onitsha are major production belts yet not mentioned in the report. Abakaliki was never a major palm oil belt, but because the population density was low, ENDC was looking to start palm oil plantations there too.The report I posted did justice to my claim that the SS'ners land also contributed hugely to the Palm Oil plantations of the Eastern Region. You can see I am not fixated on the Igbo part, that is because I base my argument on my premises that "SS'ner land also contribute hugely to the Palm oil plantation in the Eastern Region".
If you subtract what only Lagos take from the allocation and the rest of 5 SW States in.comparison to what SE receive, Ondo crude oil contributions become low.
Don't bore me with politics here so as not to derail the essence. Let me give you a summary of the basic allocation (with 13% derivative) to states based on December 2019 NBS data:
--South South - 57.8 Billion (6 States)
--South West - 20.0 Billion (6 States)
--South East - 16.4 Billion (5 States)
--North West - 25.8 Billion (6 States)
Looking at the above. Why are you fixated on Lagos and SW? Is SE with their 5 states not also getting much from the allocation? Even coupled with the fact that Ondo oil is there, NW got more allocation that SW simply because it is always distributed based on Local government.
infact Kano got more allocation than Lagos in Dec 2019 with 4.8billion against Lagos 4.1billion.
Can you see your grieviances against Lagos and SW is total hogwash? Yorubas are never the problem, the issue is Nigeria.

Lagos still robes Niger Delta till today, too many oil servicing companies are still headquartered in Lagos paying taxes to Lagos state government.C'mon Lagos did not rob any oil company. Lagos attracts foreign investment from all sectors and coupled with the security issue in the Niger Delta area which made investors have confidence in Lagos generally. Stop all these name calling on Yoruba and Lagos blame game, its getting stale.
|Politics / Re: South East Should Stop Disrespecting The Niger Delta by YorubaHero12: 2:43am On May 12, 2020|
Yes it is always Yorubas that take the blame. The Igbo man must always find a way to blame the Yorubas for everything. It was Yoruba that whispered in the ears of Adaka Boro to rebel? Just as Ojukwu also lied he released a Yoruba man (Awolowo) from prison and that he betrayed him by allying with Gowon to whip up emotions and paint Awo bad supporting Gowon. Just as you blame the Yorubas for your loss in the war with Ojukwu crying that Awo seized his food supply. It must always be the Yorubas!
|Politics / Re: South East Should Stop Disrespecting The Niger Delta by YorubaHero12: 2:34am On May 12, 2020|
Azikwe is a conman that have betrayed virtually everyone he came in contact with, even his brethen. After colluding with the North to form a government in the early stage, he later fell out with Balewa towards the parliamentary election of 1964 after betraying what we would have called the southern alliance initially.
He betrayed his colleagues (other premiers) during the masterminded coup which saw only him embarked on a trip to Europe and later on a cruise to the Caribbean in Late 1965 after which the coupist strucked in Jan 15 the next year. In a well Orchestrated plan, he transferred power to Nwafor Orizu who was the Senate president then under the law, while he (Orizu) made a broadcast after briefing Azikwe on the phone on the decision to voluntary transfer power to Aguiyi Ironsi. He (Ironsi) later made a broadcast accepting the invitation from them (Orizu) to form the government. Only Zik survived among his colleague.
He would later denounce Ojukwu and tag him rebel in the international press which can be seen as a betrayal to what Ojukwu and millions of Igbos stood for at that time.
The Igbos will only rather speak about Awolowo and blame him for all what they faced and absolve Azikwe of his numerous wrong.

Your fact about Adaka Boro is baseless because freedom is a right to every man. You are doing like the opressors that is trying to give reason to why the opressed have to remain under him. He was jailed for standing up for his people and demanding for their right and yet you are here saying he shouldn't have stood up for the right of his people because the Igbos gave him chance to become SUG president? Such nonsense!
You are here with the usual rubbish without proof about Adekunle killing Boro that you guys always regurgitate. Where is the proof to that? Which credible source do you have to that effect except the usual propaganda?

pazienza:LOl. whwn an Igbo can is cornered, they will hastily start mentioning Lagos-Ibadan media as a diversionary tactics.
Firstly why are you bringing the general Nigeria data when we are talking of the Eastern Region. I am talking particularly in context of the Palm oil and the share of the minorities land in its plantation.
You initially said on your first post that the Eastern region palm oil was majorly found in Igboland thereby giving a false illusion that the minorities don't own part of the Palm oil field. You are making it feel like only the Igbos lands contributed to the Palm oil revenues.
Below showed my earlier assertion that Uyo, Calabar, and PortHacort had a big share in the palm oil plantations. The Abakaliki side cannot be compared to the calabar side in importance and that is captured in the report below.
My argument with reference to the above is that you shouldn't make it seem like the Igbos are the only place hosting the palm oil resources, the SS land also contributed as much to that revenue. I don't know about coal, which explained why I did not argue along that line.
With your reference to Lagos and Niger Delta, it is the politics and all regions are feeding fat from Niger Delta oil. All the 5 SE states are also feeding fat from the Niger Delta oil so what is your argument. FCT have been in Abuja since 1991 and it has been feeding fat from the Niger Delta oil since then, why don't you accuse the Hausas too? At least Ondo State has more crude oil than the whole SE states combined.

You are more concerned with the Yoruba problem with the minorities to derail the subject and forgot about the Igbos issue with the minorities that made some of them want to break up from the Eastern Region. I can help you with some fun fact about Awo's Action Group.
—Do you know that Action Group supported the creation of a non-Igbo state in the Eastern Region, comprising Calabar, Ogoja, and River provinces? Infact that decision made AG won three of the fourteen non-Igbo seats in the 1954 federal election and thirteen of the thirty non-Igbo seats in the 1957 Eastern Region election. Sam Ikoku of Enyong division (Aro-Calabar) was part of AG then.
—Do you know the Awo's Action Group also supported the liberation of the middlebelt people from the North. The United Middle Belt Congress (UMBC) at that time formed an alliance with the AG and was then agitating fr a separate state from Nirthern Nigeria. This alliance was even part of the reason why there is no cooperation between the Northern NPC and AG in national politics.
have you forgotten how the government of NCNC opposed the creation of Calabar-Ogoja-River States from the Eastern Region? Azikwe and the NPC made sure the Mid-West was created but opposed the creation of new states in their respective domain and yet you blame only Awolowo.
Talk of hypocrites, you need no one else except the Igbos. They will accuse other people of what they have done countless times while feigning innocence.
You call me the twister of truth, when the truth is already in the public doamin for everyone to see
|Politics / Re: South East Should Stop Disrespecting The Niger Delta by YorubaHero12: 12:28am On May 12, 2020|
Typical Igbo man, you intentionally left the impact of the southern minorities in the Palm oil industry of the Eastern region so as to project an illusion of doing them a favor. Let me refresh your memory.
—In 1936, The british under the United Africa Company first established a 6000 acre plantation of Palm oil plantation in calabar.
—UAC also had a second palm plantation in the Midwest which it inherited from much more earlier period than the above.
—In 1948, The government later developed farm settlement schemes which was first established at Kwa falls near Calabar.
—After series of low level of grove maintenance, the farm settlement were abandoned in 1955, and the farm formed the nucleus of the first plantation of the Eastern Nigeria Development Corporation (ENDC).
—Infact, some major producing provinces of palm in the Eastern region as at 1962-1968 were Uyo, Calabar, PortHacourt.
As per the importance of crude oil in the civil war, I won't even waste my time explaining that coz even a kindergaten will know crude oil is part of the reasons why Ojukwu thought he could stand alone. Infact Crude oil is also one of the reasons why Britain supported Nigeria.
See how you diverted the discourse to Awolowo moving oil company to Lagos like he have ever a president or supreme commander at any time in Nigeria history. However I will refresh your memory to the words of Adaka Boro when he rebelled against the Eastern Region government for the freedom of his people. Adaka Boro led an armed protest against the exploitation of oil and gas resources in the Niger Delta areas which benefited mainly FG and the Eastern region with capital in Enugu and nothing was given to the Niger Delta people . His school of thought was that the Niger Delta people deserved a larger share of proceeds of the oil wealth.
Below is his emotional word when he declared the secession of Niger Delta Republic in Feb 1966:
"Today is a great day, not only in your lives but also in the history of the Niger Delta. Perhaps, it will be the greatest day for a very long time. This is not because we are going to bring the heavens down, but because we are going to demonstrate to the world what and how we feel about oppression. Remember your 70-year-old grandmother who still farms before she eats; remember also your poverty-stricken people; remember, too, your petroleum which is being pumped out daily from your veins; and then fight for your freedom."
He would later be jailed for treason by the Eastern/Federal govt coalition and was released later by Gowon. Later died mysteriously.
The above clearly showed the Igbos have denied the minority their rights especially when you speak about crude oil. So stop pointing your fingers at Awolowo while leaving the wrongs of your own and accept the greed and covetousness of the Igbo man on the minorities.

Well, this thread is not opened by a Yoruba man and I think we Yorubas on here showed a lot of restraint to be drawn into the argument even when the Hammer guy kept calling us.
What I’ve written is a truth that is available in the public domain and I just brought it here to sharpen the memory of intellectuals. The Southern minorities can think by themselves and they will judge accordingly.
Lastly, there are countless Zik’s speeches that showed the hypocrisy and the magnitude of his greed. Let me not derail this thread by documenting it here. That will be left for another day.

I think these practices have been going on all before the advent of Covid-19, it is just getting more pronounced due to the fact that security men are more proactive in border patrol due to the Corona issue.
What exactly is the reason for hiding inside foodstuffs just to get to the south? What activity is even going on in the South currently?
The Northern leaders need to wake up and make sure these guys are nabbed within their enclaves before they leave the Northern border to save themselves from all the daily embarrassment.
