FWD: Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti region administration, west Nigeria, unequivocally condemns continuing murder of Biafrans by Nigeria-occupation genocidist military in Biafra; Fayose warns: “Muhammadu Buhari is turning the people” of Biafra into “endangered species” (Vanguard, Lagos, Wednesday 1 June 2016)

(Ayodele Fayose: ... Buhari has made up his mind to eliminate as many [Biafrans] as possible”)

NO CURRENTLY serving public official in genocidist Nigeria has been as forthright in denouncing the present phase of the Igbo genocide, being directed by Muhammadu Buhari, as Ayodele Fayose. In his latest condemnation, Fayose reminds the world that well over 150 Igbo have been murdered by the Nigeria military under the Buhari regime since August 2015 and notably indicts: “It appears that … Buhari has made up his mind to eliminate as many [Biafran] people as possible … To even justify the killing by claiming [as regime spokespersons have been variously quoted] that Igbo youths protest was orchestrated in order to mar the first anniversary of Buhari’s [regime] is to say the least wicked and animalistic” (Vanguard, Lagos, 1 June 2016). Fayose ends his historic statement by appealing to the international community (pointedly a direct reference to David Cameron and Barack Obama administrations which imposed Buhari as head of Nigeria regime in March 2015) to take note of this gruesome murder campaign against Igbo people.

Fountain of ideas

Surely, no one would accuse Ayodele Fayose of overstating this ever deteriorating grave situation in Biafra... 

It is extraordinary, if not shocking, that, in contrast, there is a deafening silence on the ongoing genocide from the heads of the following administrative regimes in six regions of occupied Biafra – Abia, Anambra, Enuugwu, Delta, Ebonyi, Imo and Rivers, the epicentre of this unrelenting slaughtering of a peaceful, defenceless people. Are they not aware of the genocide? Do they dispute Fayose’s courageous, graphic narrative? Would they? What has happened to those who claim to be leaders from a people who gave the world such literary classics as Things Fall Apart, Arrow of God, There was a Country, Efuru, IduLabyrinths & Path to Thunder and who constructed and lived through advanced republican democracies for over a millennium whose variegated legacy constitutes a fountain of ideas for the contemporary world? Just what are these officials waiting for to tell the world that their people, Igbo people, are being murdered by a ruthless Nigeria-islamist genocidist regime headed by Muhammadu Buhari who, during phase-III of the Igbo genocide (6 July 1966-12 January 1970), was commander of a genocidist brigade in north/northcentral Biafra, slaughtering to the hilt?
