An Igbo group , Voice from the East-VEAST, has described the open -secret agenda of militarization of the South East in particular and Nigeria in general, as a religious machination from the top of rulership, percolating down to the last rump.
It is evident that our collective patrimony is being tampered with by whoever is directly responsible for the militarization, for use to financing the illicit conceptualization , the group alerts, stating that this is evidenced in the sporadic authorization of the military to unilaterally attack suspected zones of the country, especially the South East for fear of the unknown .
Speaking on this issue , the Convener of the group , Comrade Kindness Jonah , while addressing journalists reminded that ‘ python dance ’ in the South East , meaning the most dangerous snake or even most killer-prone animal is dancing, signaling death is coming , as against the ‘operation lafia dole’ in other places in the far North , meaning peace continues , is a clear sign that Igboland is marked out to be destroyed by Nigerian military under the command of Buhari as a sharia maestro.
Speaking further on the tactical on-going militarization of the South East and Nigeria, Comrade Kindness noted that the word militarization connotes forceful occupation of a place by a people pseudo –militarily infatuated . Expatiating on this definition, Comrade Jonah explained that ‘ a people’ so posited here represents a clandestine interest as the natal star of the military push and purshe, which is divergent in nature, but focused in applicability. He maintained that bokoharam that is always ‘down – graded’ in Nigeria , but have been killing with relish unhindered , represents ‘a people ’ in this context.
Defining ‘a people’ further, Comrade Jonah hinted that it represents ‘organized people for organized mandate ’. Bokoharam are well organized and their ultimate focus which is full islamization of Nigeria , VEAST laments, is the organized mandate every member of that religion wants realized by all means whether by bokoharam or Fulaniherdsmen or bandits or herdsmen or jihadists or killer herdsmen or other agents of takiya meaning deceit in this religion of bokoharam, which are all agents of militarization .
The agents of militarization do not necessarily need to be military personnel, no not one enthused VEAST , but pointing out that what is important is their being ‘’ pseudo-militarily infatuated ‘’, which is what pushes them to kill, maim , kidnap, rape, burn off, incinerate and destroy with gusto of a religionist . These pseudo-military agents illustrates VEAST, could be in the military or police or Wambai market Kano or Sabon Gari market Zaria or chakwa-chakwa shoe shiner in the streets of Aba Ngwa or university lecturer or politician or in any profession reputable or menial , so far as they are bounded by the sole mandate of achieving a defined and well organized mandate which is islamization .
What is the religion of bokoharam, VEAST questions?
As would be stipulated by VEAST, the rhetorical answer to the fore –going question informs why ‘peace continues ‘ pervades in the far North of the bokoharam religion where shedding of blood is the order of the day, while the wicked and fiercefully deadly python dances in the South East of entirely a different religion averse to bokoharam’s, where peace reigns and life is utterly respected.
Comrade Jonah further narrates that a bird- eye view of the Nigerian scenario in the issue of militarization in the South East, would reveal a ‘defeated people mentality’ which is why more that 70- % of the military check points in Nigeria are domiciled in the South East alone , which explains the present zest for ‘ Python Dance 4 ‘.
Besides examine VEAST , every police man bribes to be posted to the South East where he can extort without criticisms and devoid of questioning from above because the people are believed to have been conquered , asserting that the blood of an Igbo person does not really matter to either police , army , navy or paramilitary .
The group concludes that militarization has always been with us in the South East since 1970 whether at Owerrinta, Abala, Umuahia, Enugu, Agwu, Awka, Onitsha, Aba, Nbawsi, Omoba , Owerri, Okigwe, Orlu, Nnewi, Uli, Nsukka, Abakiliki, Afikpo, Ohawfia, Bende, Arochukwu as well as every other place in Igbo land and beyond , where Fulaniherdsmen as chief agents of militarization for islamization, operate.
