The moment the slave resolves that he will no longer be a slave, his fetters fall. He frees himself and shows the way to others. Freedom and slavery are mental states. (Mahatma Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948)

Igbo problem in Nigeria predates independence. First of all, while Igbo pathfinders, like The Right Hon. Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, the pan-Africanist, were busy fighting for the emancipation of the black of the world from any form of colonialism and/or abridgement of fundamental human rights, Northern Nigeria leaders on the contrary were busy plotting how to enslave the Igbo and the rest of Nigeria. They were very open about their intention to conquer and dominate Nigeria.

As far back as 1947, Hausa/Fulani leaders were already boasting of their intension to enslave Southern Nigeria including the Igbo people in the East. And the mechanism usually adopted was and is Jihad – a struggle in which the non-Moslem either got killed or converted into Islam and slavery.
Marginalisation of the Igbo in Nigeria, which the Ohanaeze Ndigbo and South-East Governors’ tout as the main grouse of the Igbo against Nigeria, is indeed less than 25% of Igbo grudge. It therefore appears that there is a world of disconnect between the Igbo man on the street and the position of South-East Governors and Ohanaeze Ndigbo. If the issue was merely marginalisation, restructuring would have been the solution. The most worrisome issue for the Igbo is indeed, genocide and the permanent threat to genocide.

Life is the ultimate gift of the Almighty God to man. It is irreplaceable once taken, no matter the circumstances. All modern civilizations are in place, primarily, to protect and preserve life before any other thing. Land is God’s number two gift to mankind. Land boundaries, in municipal and international law, define the territorial limits of nation states, regions, cities, communities, estates and homes. Disputes over land and other property are civil matters, whereas issues involving threat to or extinguishing of life, are criminal offenses against society. Section 14.-(2) (b) of the extant Constitution of Nigeria provides that ‘the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government;”whereas Section 33.-(1) guarantees every citizen the right to life. Section 34.-(1) protects the right to the dignity of the human person. Multi-lateral treaties of UN, AU and ECOWAS, which Nigeria ratified and therefore is subject to, guarantee these rights as fundamental to the existence of all humans in planet earth. The present government of President Buhari exists in denial in its role as protector and defender of all fundamental human rights and goes out of its way to abridge. At the appropriate time full documented incontrovertible disclosure will be made to the world.

It is the violation of these precious intrinsic and extrinsic God’s gifts of life to the Igbo by the oligarchy of Nigeria through the instrumentality of President Buhari’s government that engineers the agitation for separation from a republic which Igbo man on the street has come to regard as evil, indeed, an animal farm.

The drive to compel the Igbo to accept their domination and probably conversion to the oligarchy’s religion or face death has not been hidden by the Hausa-Fulani leaders, even before independence.

Concluding his address to the first session of the Nigerian Legislative Council in Lagos in March 1947, Mallam Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, who later became Nigeria’s first and only Prime Minister, had declared:
“We shall demand our rights when the time is ripe. If the British quitted Nigeria now at this stage, the northern people would continue their uninterrupted conquest to the sea.” (Ref:Trevor Clark: A Right Honourable Gentleman, Hudhuda Publishing Co., Zaria, 1991, p.99).

In Jihads, the non-Moslem has a choice to submit and convert to Islam or get killed. Eit
