World Igbo Congress, WIC, a platform for all Igbo in the diaspora, yesterday, has said that plans have been concluded to mobilise resources worldwide for the formation of an indigenous militia for self-defence against the RUGA settlements in the south-east.

A statement by its Chairman, Prof Anthony Ejiofor, said the move for an Igbo militia is backed by indigenous native laws.

Ejiofor said the development became necessary following the 30-day ultimatum issued by the Coalition of Northern Youth Groups for the implementation of Ruga settlements for herdsmen.

He said: “We call on the Federal government of Nigeria to summarily arrest and prosecute Mr Abdul Aseez Suleiman and his group for incitement and for a threat to conduct domestic terrorism against citizens of Nigeria failing which the Igbo of Southern Nigeria will use our own methods to carry out justice and defend our own people.

“We in the diaspora have long observed that the current unitary structure foisted on the people by successive military governments, is unsustainable. It has become an urgent imperative to dismantle this structure.’’

This is the logical response to this situation, and it was always predictable.

The Aro Igbo fought the British with such well disciplined militia and it was not easy for the British to win.
The Ekumeku warriors fought against the same British and it lasted for 30 years plus.

Methinks that the Igbo should never forget the history of their past.

When the Europeans came to Igboland for the first time, each Igbo family compound they saw had a war tower.
This means that Igbo fought invaders compound by compound. To defeat them, you must win in EVERY COMPOUND.
We lost the civil war but we did not lose our land, and there was a "no victor, no vanquished" condition that ended the war. These Fulani people carry on as if they defeated the Igbo, even though the Igbo fought everybody.
Well...
My honest guess is that Nigeria cannot survive the coming tsunami.
Dem neva born the baga wey go take my papa land. lol
