NOW THE SHADOWS lengthened. The Europeans had also been busily building up and training strong African armies. Africans trained to hate, kill and conquer Africans. Blood of Africans was to sprinkle and further darken the pages of their history … Indeed,
Africawas conquered for the Europeans by the Africans [themselves], and thereafter kept under [conquest] control by African police and African soldiers. Very little European blood was ever spilled. (Chancellor Williams, The Destruction of Black Civilization, 1995: 218)
(Harold Wilson... easily decipherable DNA signature: “[I] would accept half a million dead Biafrans if that was what it took...” Nigeria to destroy the Igbo resistance to the genocide )
(Adesanya Maja Adekunle... predictably, this on the ground “boy boy” executioner of the Igbo genocide for his “massa” Harold Wilson duly declares: “I want to prevent even one I[g]bo having even one piece to eat ... We shoot at everything that moves in ... I[g]bo territory ... even at things that don’t move” )
ALAS, murders and murdering and murders constitute genocidist nigerianá’s easily decipherable DNA signature as duly ascribed by that Harold Wilson’s 1968 monstrous Igbo death edict. Abhorrent legacy.
