Speaking at a reception with a number of top British establishment figures (captured on camera – see video below) which noticeably include head of state Queen Elizabeth II, parliamentary speaker Bercow, archbishop of Canterbury Welby and former justice secretary Grayling, David Cameron, British prime minister, pronounces: “We’ve got some leaders of some fantastically corrupt countries coming to Britain … Nigeria and Afghanistan, possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world”. We must note, though, that despite Cameron’s affirmation or rather because of it, Nigeria works exponentially for Britain. On 29 May 1966, just 5 months before David Cameron was born, Britain, under prime minister Harold Wilson, supported Nigeria militarily, diplomatically and politically as it launched the genocide against Igbo people. 3.1 million Igbo or one-quarter of this nation’s population were murdered during the course of 44 dreadful months. This is the foundational genocide of post-(European)conquest Africa and the most gruesome campaign of extermination of a people in African history. This genocide continues today. It is led by Muhammadu Buhari, a genocidist trooper right from the outset 50 years ago, and the islamist head of the Nigeria regime currently visiting London on a so-called corruption summit. The genocide is supported fully by Cameron, just as his 1960s’ predecessor.
“Punishment”, capital net-exporters, cavalier
Britain waged the genocide against the Igbo as “punishment” for the vanguard role Igbo people played between the mid-1930s and October 1960 to terminate 75 years of its conquest and occupation of Nigeria and emerged as the effective suzerain-state power over Nigeria subsequently, safeguarding its vast economic and strategic interests in this southwestcentral Africa region. Besides, kakistocratic Nigeria, in addition to the other “Berlin-states” dotted across Africa, “corrupt” or not, have consistently been net-exporters of capital to Britain and the rest of the West since 1981. At least the gargantuan sum of US$400 billion has been transferred in this track of transaction during the period which is tagged “legitimate” by its recipients. Except African peoples in these “Berlin-states” embark at once on freeing themselves from this quagmire of existence in states essentially constructed to serve the European World in perpetuity, a westerner born in 2016 would conceivably, in another 50 years, update David Cameron’s assured, champagne-sipping breathtaking performance on the subject but this time around with even more cavalier and pompous disposition than what was on display earlier on in the day...
