But as I have argued, variously, Buhari is not really at war with Boko Haram not to mention this organisation’s other ruthless cousin, Fulani militia. On the contrary, Buhari is an integral component of Boko Haram/Fulani militants. Buhari’s war, since his March 2015 imposition as head of Nigeria regime by US President Obama and ex-British Prime Minister Cameron, is to the south of Nigeria – in Biafra, occupied by Nigeria since 13 January 1970.
Germany started its direct “relationship” with Africa in the early years of the first decade of the last century quite abominably with its organised genocides against the following African peoples in the southwest region of the continent: beginning in 1904 and through to 1907, the German military, operating in the region, murdered 65,000 out of 80,000 Herero people or 80 per cent of the total Herero population wiped out; beginning in 1904 and through to 1907, the German military, operating in the same region, murdered 10,000 Nama people or 50 per cent of the Nama population destroyed. Thirty years later, the German-state would resume this southwest Africa genocidist antecedent 5000 miles away in the heart of Europe, its continental homeland, as it embarked on the gruesome genocide of Jewish people, murdering 6 million of them by 1945.
Given its catastrophic history in the 20th century, it is hopefully inconceivable that Germany would wish to “reengage” with Africa in this second decade of a new century, this time in southwestcentral Africa, by intervening to send weapons to Nigeria to enable the latter intensify its campaign of savagery in the ongoing Igbo genocide, a genocide in which Nigeria and Britain murdered 25 per cent of the Igbo population between 29 May 1966 and 12 January 1970.
