300 killed on July 29th, 1966.
30,000 killed during the northern pogroms from Oct. to Dec.1966.
3 million killed during the civil war between 1967-1970.
Hundreds of thousands killed between 1970-2019.
I do not support the idea of any physical attack on Buhari or anyone else but given Junaid Mohammed's threat I am constrained to ask the following question:
How much more IGBO blood do he and his ilk intend to spill and how many more IGBOS do they need to slaughter before their blood-lust is satisfied?
When it gets to the point that an elderstatesman like Junaid Mohammed talks about shedding the blood of IPOB members you know that we are sitting on a keg of gunpowder and that we are on the brink of a terrible conflagration which could be ignited by just one tiny spark.
I have always had immense respect for Mohammed because he has been consistent in his criticisms of Buhari but let it be clearly understood that an attack on the Igbo will be regarded as an attack on the south. This is not 1966 and things are very different today.
Any attempt to shed the blood of any southerner, for ANY reason, as a consequence of ANY plot or grand northern design will have catastrophic consequences.
We can agree to disagree on issues and we may not even like one another but we should rule out threats of murder, mass murder, ethnic cleansing and genocide in all our discussions and debates and we should renounce and condemn them.
You do not plan to kill those you disagree with. Only animals behave like that. I urge Junaid Mohammed to withdraw his statement and to join the rest of us in renouncing violence and bloodshed.
