Between Asari Dokubo, Nnamdi Kanu and Imminent Failure of IPOB Agitation
By Attahiru Fadlu-rahman Manga.
The fallout between Asari Dokubo and Nnamdi Kanu of IPOB weakens the already doubtful success of Biafran agitation. Simply, the connivance and selfish cooperation has been smoke-screened with the money involvement as the instrumental factor that brings down the secession plan.
I’ve always doubted the success of Biafran agitation because, the Ndi Igbos attachment to and for money will itself give them caricature of bad leadership and failures in their plans no matter how good it looks. No honesty and as usual, for Nnamdi Kanu plus other active players in IPOB agitation, it’s a business – lucrative enterprise.
Already, Asari Dokubo is faulting Nnamdi Kanu as a criminal and cried out that Biafran is not safe on his hands. This is not unconnected to power tussle and unequal sharing in the wealth using IPOB to acquire from the international community and supporters. Yes, they’ve been receiving monies from Europe, India and other countries in form of support.
The implication in secession is the lingering crisis that follows aftermath and numerical lives and properties that follow the generated crisis. And this has been the major concern for those who truly care for Nigeria. No one is ready to witness any practical bloodshed in similar to what played out during Nigeria’s thirty months civil war.
For fairness and to calm frayed nerves, Gen Yakubu Gowon had to declare that it was a war neither a victory nor vanquish and this was from him to condense the tension and curtail its recurrence tendency.
Sadly, there are many countries today who are battling with secession implications and are yet to find peace, calmness and tranquility restored back to their lands. North and southern Sudan is there up till today engulfing in crisis which claims numerical lives and properties in vanquish and with the destructive conspiracy theory and hypocritical interference from the external forces.
To this end, it’s safe to assert that Nigeria will forever remain one because no any sane country in this contemporary world will ever allow another part of it to carve out of its territory.
