Your Juju Has Failed You – Joe Igbokwe Mocks Kanu, Igboho

In what appears to be a mockery of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo; and leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Drainage and Water Resources, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, says juju (charms) has failed.

“Juju no de work again ooo. It failed in Igbo land and it failed too in Yoruba land,” Igbokwe wrote on his Facebook page.

The post was accompanied with a photograph of Mr. Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, heavily decked in charms.

Igboho’s arrest in Cotonou, Benin Republic, became national news on Tuesday.

He was reportedly arrested at an airport in Cotonou on Monday night, a top source familiar with the matter said.

Igboho was arrested by the security forces in Benin Republic about three weeks after the Department of State Services had declared him wanted for allegedly stockpiling arms — an allegation he has since denied.

The source told The PUNCH that Igboho will be repatriated to Nigeria from Benin Republic, one of Nigeria’s neighbouring countries in the West African sub region.

“He was arrested in Cotonou while he tried to travel out on Monday night. His destination was Germany,” the source said.

Concerning his encounter with Kanu, Igbokwe said that the IPOB leader had threatened him and his family prior to the arrest.

Igbokwe made this known in a statement late June titled ‘Thank God I survived Nnamdi Kanu’s madness’.

According to Igbokwe, Kanu had sought his blood because he disagreed with the secessionist movement of IPOB.

The statement partly reads, “Nnamdi asked his boys to behead me anywhere they see me. They did not spare my children as they extended the same fate to them.

“He also did not spare the names of every other person who spoke against his dream land, Biafra.

Igbokwe also explained that his family lived in fear and his children were threatened.

“My family lived in fear. When they could not get me, they resorted to calling my phones to pour invectives. They threatened my children at the drop of a hat.

“On my Facebook page the ‘Children of Hate’ Nnamdi Kanu trained and nurtured for years in abuse and hate, bigotry, primordial sentiments, and ethnic preoccupation will come in their thousands to rain abuses with all kinds of unprintable words.”

“They cannot even read what you wrote to understand the trajectory. I endured it all.

“When they noticed that I was not bothered, they resorted to propaganda and heckling.

“First, they said I was jogging in Lagos and collapsed and died. Secondly, they said I was beaten up in Lagos by IPOB members. Just last week, they came up with the same story that I was beaten up again.

“In quick succession, they said my house in Nnewi has been burnt down. All these were triggered to weaken my resolve but they do not know me. When I believe in something, I hardly give up.

“Now what is my offense? I do not want Biafra and I gave 20 reasons why it cannot stand in the 21st Century.

“I said that Igbo have not spoken and Nnamdi is a baby to dictate the fate of 40 million Igbo in Nigeria. Nnamdi never liked this.

“At the time, I asked for a debate and he said I am too small to face him. Nnamdi carried on with his suicide mission and today, I cannot tell the number of young Igbo men that have been wasted in the last one year.”

Kanu is being remanded in the custody of the Department of State Service, as his case was adjourned to July 26 and 27.

Reacting to the case, Igbokwe said, “Nnamdi will tell us a lot in the courts in the days ahead when the chips are down. Obviously, he has a lot to say.”

Nigerian Ex ‘Super’ Permanent Secretary, Ahmed Joda Wrote Malam Muhammad Sanusi II

LETTER TO MY SON, SANUSI LIMIDO SANUSI.

My dear Son, As I write this letter I do not know your address. I am addressing it to you as my son, because I know you understand why. I got to know you when you were a very young person, a boy about to enter Secondary School Before then and, very importantly, I knew your Grand Father, Emir of Kano Sanusi and your uncle the late Ambassador Ado Sanusi. Circumstances had made it possible for me to become very close to both of them. Your late father, Ambassador Aminu Sanusi and I were contemporaries and were also very close. We trusted each other.

He was a man of thought, far sighted, kind, considerate and resolute. You have always, from the first day we met, called me Baba: when you were younger but as the years rolled on you called me Baba Joda. I accept the courtesy and value the respects it conveys. As a very young person, at our very first meeting, the questions you asked me and the points you raised were far and beyond your age and I thought that you possessed a great deal of potential.

Your record in the public domain is proof enough of this assessment. Your departure from the Throne of Kano, was predictable from your very beginning and from the moment you ascended to it. For Kano and for Nigeria, it may well be a blessing in disguise that you may now be able to address issues that are now urgent for our society as a person not encumbered by the burden of office. I believe that your father, a gifted and far sighted man, understood what the future politics of our country portend and decided early not to be part of it. The purpose of this letter to you is not to commiserate with you, because I know that you must have known the likely consequences of the principled position you have taken.

The reality we must face in Northern Nigeria is that the evil forces of feudalism that have kept us in bondage for so long are still there and fighting. You have been the only voice that has been telling us this truth. These forces will fight you and you know it Also, within me, I feel that you have always known of this possibility and that you would be fully prepared for the consequences. Very often in the years since your accession to the Throne of Kano, I have tried to imagine what would be the best way for you to disengage from the suffocating burden you have inherited that of service to the people you have chosen to lead better. I believe that the reason for my trend of thought is that, from what I know of your grandfather, your father and your uncle Ado and, of course you, it was most likely that you cannot change your beliefs in order to survive in an environment that is alien to all that is fair, good and responsible.

I believe that for the good of the Kano people, the people of Northern Nigeria and, of course, Nigeria you are now better placed to bring into service to humanity, the intellect that you are endowed with, the education in both the Western and Islamic endeavors to bear in the emancipation of the Talakawas of Northern Nigeria. Your courage and your wide experience in many areas of endeavour place you in an excellent position to influence the effort to emancipate people who, for so long, have been subjugated and deprived by leaderships that are conservative and feudal; unable, unwilling and incapable of seeing the writing on the wall. Leaderships that cannot understand or appreciate that this world we are in is a world that is led by knowledge, by science and technology; none of which cannot be achieved without sound education which were are denying our people. I suggest to you that, if you are contemplating the legal route to right the wrong that has been done to you; you should abandon the thought.

The Judiciary is not the way to go in this country when you are seeking justice. For evidence you have a living example in Jokolo, the Emir of Gwandu. In the circumstances of the present, I suggest that you only take full advantage of the Fundamental Rights guaranteed to all Nigerian citizens by the Constitution and only go to court to enforce those Fundamental Human Rights. Even this route can be frustrating it can serve keep unjust system in the public mind and in the Peoples’ Court. You must protect your right to hold and to express your views; your right to associate with others and to propagate any views that are consistent with the laws of the Federation of Nigeria.

I believe it is possible for a platform to be created by you and people of like minds to propagate the ideas and ideals that can emancipate Northern Nigeria from the shackles of the visionless leaderships that we have endured for so long. We need a moral leadership that is founded on sound and honest principles; of good education and of justice and fair play. I believe you have the courage and all that it takes to accept the challenge that your new situation has imposed on you. I look forward to your accepting this challenge and to your helping to create such a platform that you can lead towards the moral revolution that we so badly need and deserve. I wish you well. Your affectionately,

Baba Ahmed Joda.
Former Federal Perm Sec.
