Some Yoruba leaders will be first to flee if war begins – Junaid Mohammed

…Says it’s easy to start war but stopping it difficult

Following the continued insecurity in the country, especially with the recent killing of Funke Olakunrin, the daughter of Reuben Fasoranti, leader of Afenifere,  Second Republic lawmaker, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, has cautioned leaders in the South West to stop fanning the embers of war with their utterances. Dr. Mohammed specifically said if there was war in the country today, the Yoruba leaders would be the first to run away.

He gave the statement in an interview with Independent Newspaper.

Recall that many Yoruba leaders, including the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi and the Aare Onakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams, have criticised the spate of insecurity in the country.

The Ooni had warned that the South West zone would defend itself from marauding herdsmen if the security situation in the region was not tamed.

But Dr. Junaid Mohammed said the Yoruba leaders have not learnt any lesson from the Biafran war experience.

He said some of the Yoruba leaders are “noisemakers” who are calling for war but will be the first to flee the country if a war breaks out in the country.

According to him, “We have to be very careful and mind our utterances. It is easy to start a war but it is not easy to stop it,” he said.

“We all saw what happened during the Biafran war even though a lot of people who went through that experience have not learnt anything like some of the leaders of Afenifere. They have been making provocative statements in recent times.

“People’s lives are determined partly by their culture. These people are noisemakers and if there is war today, they will run away because most of them have houses outside the country. They make big, big noise but some of the real fighters who will fight until death don’t even talk about it.

“We shouldn’t allow these lousy people to lead us to war. War is not good. I want Nigerians to be careful because if the chips are down, these people will not be available to fight. They are calling for war, let the war start and we will see who will run first.”

Absolute truth...
Or let me put it this way ...
Some of the people who would fight to death talk more with their actions.
Right now in the East, the IPOB talks a lot, but the people that will fight to death are not following IPOB frontally because IPOB's peaceful strategy doesn't make sense to them.
But they are there... you know them by certain things they do.

True.
That is why NOW is the time to conduct a referendum to allow people decide whether they want to continue being Nigerians or secede.
What is coming, if not handled peacefully, will be unprecedented in the history of Africa and probably the world.
That is why I support the call by the Northern group to conduct a referendum in Nigeria as soon as possible.

Well, I honestly believe that the people that went through the last Biafran genocide have learned their lesson, but it is not the type of lesson that a Junaid Muhammed would ever understand.

For 52 years, the Igbo have been virtually enslaved in Nigeria: No international airport, no seaport, no federal presence, and now totally removed from Nigeria's federal government hierarchy.

They have absolutely nothing to lose now, unlike 1967 when they were Nigerians.
Today, every opportunity has been used to tell them LOUDLY that they are NOT Nigerians.

What I would say is that in 1967, the population of the entire Eastern region was around 17 million.
Today, only the Igbo is around 50 million. Meaning they can easily raise millions of fighting people.

In 1967 the "Biafrans" were in a handful of countries abroad.
Today they are in EVERY country of the world, and that translates to inexhaustible source of funding for a new Biafran war.

My candid advice (as an African with the spirit of God) is that people like Junaid Muhammed should support calls for a referendum so that people can vote to stay in Nigeria, or secede to form new countries.

That is the only way to ensure that whatever physical infrastructure that have been built in the North and other parts of Nigeria using oil money is left intact for them to continue building a new country post-Nigeria.
There will be no oil money to use to rebuild the rubble that will result from the war.

The Igbo say "instead of my cow to run away completely, let me just cut off the tail that I have in hand and go home with it, than lose the whole cow".
The North has raped and pillaged Nigeria for 52 odd years. It is time for it to tell itself the truth, or risk losing everything.

Words of wisdom.

Nobody is calling for war, but according to Okonkwo in things fall apart "if a man comes into my compound and defecate, what do I do, I take a big stick and breaks his head". When you stay on your land and a person comes to your area maiming and killing innocent lives, do you watch them? Action must be taken against this fulani guys or else we won't find it funny.
