The Nigerian Government must as a matter of urgency consider any #EndSARS “protester” whose bank account showed unusual influx of money three months to the period 03 October – 25 October, 2020, to be a “Coup plotter”. Subsequent events show that the funding was for nefarious activities and was derived from HOSTILE internal and external entities if as the Inspector General of Police (IGP) was quoted as saying. The good thing is that Science and Cryptography have reduced searching for money trails to child’s play. I hold that half of the investigation is done: Any cash lodgement has a trail. Previously, trails disappear. Not any more. Any bank that refuses to disclose such lodgement should be sanctioned and all officials involved should be included among the coup plotters.
I expect the #NigeriaPolice, working with the International Police(Interpol), to have come out with a tentative list of all internal and external “donors” to the #EndSARS Protests. Whether we like it or not, the very UNSAVOURY Truth is that the #EndSARS Protests was a coup plot that failed.
What is a coup? Google defines a coup as a “sudden, violent and illegal seizure of power from a government.” Wikipedia defines a coup as ” the removal of an existing government from power, usually through violent means. Typically, it is an illegal, unconstitutional seizure of power by a political faction, the military or a dictator.” Other dictionaries have even more scary definitions. Simply put, by whatever name called, this was a “failed coup”. The direction it was going, showed a well planned, agenda, which was in stages. We saw the planners had the Nigerian Media in tow, had set up a functioning radio station, Soro Soké, had caterers and well positioned camera crew. The video of a black jeep picking up “thugs” was so pat that it becomes suspicious. No security outfit, even the most amateur, could have done that! Strange also that Twitter’s first instinctive reaction was correct.But, it was pressured to retract!
Why did ALL the so-called leaders of the Protest go into Silent Mode? We’ve not heard that DJ Switch, Davido, Yul Edochie, Genevieve Nnaji,Uche Jombo,WizKid,Falz, Phyno and Flavor, the most Visible Leaders, have appeared before any of the Judicial panels, all over the Country. These Panels were/are “Judicial” and thus have powers to subpoena ANY Human being, it believes has information to help them. So, where is Chief Obasanjo, who has “credible,visual evidence”? So, where is Atiku Abubakar, who sent dozens of condolences, to ” bereaved families”. So, where is Femi Falana, SAN, and his son, Falz, a lawyer, picked by the protesters, to be President? We saw the placards!
We must stop deceiving ourselves: So long as there are people, in Nigeria, who believe and hold that they are Untouchable – who can say or do what they want – go scot-free. Then, the Nigerian Problem, of rascality, will persist!
Below is my list of Nigerians to be invited by a Panel. Judicial. This is NOT an indictment or accusation. It is meant to put to rest all rumours AND to pick their brains:
1. Chief Olusegun Obasanjo
2. Gen Ibrahim Babangida
3. Alhaji Atiku Abubakar
4. Nnamdi Kanu ( special immunity to attend).
5. Senator Abaribe
6.Senator Ali Ndume
7. Senator Modu Ali Sheriff
8. Gov Babagana Zulum
9. Peter Obi
10. David Oyedepo
12. Bode George
13. Bukola Saraki
14. Peter Ayo Fayose
15. Alhaji Aliyu Babangida
There’s nothing wrong with expressing opinion. It is a Constitutional Right. But, there’s Something wrong with expressing a deliberately misleading, well timed and inciting opinion. These are influencers, whose opinions are accepted as official. Well, let the Federal Government set up a Judicial Panel, headed by a retired Supreme Court Justice to ascertain certain “truths”. This is a matter of National Security. Neither the Earth nor the Heavens will fall, if they are subpoenaed.

I I hear Mr Peter Obi, erstwhile Governor of Anambra State, erstwhile Vice Presidential running mate to Atiku Abubakar,and coincidentally, in my list of honourable invitees, is squealing. That he has run to court to stop the Anambra State Judicial Panel, from subpoenaing him to appear. What is he afraid of? I thought this will be an arena to HATE Buhari and be expressive!
You would have noticed that I did not include Madams Oby Ezekwesili and Ayesha Yesufu. This is a serious matter. Not a forum for clowns and hearsay.( I hope Gen Babangida won’t appear and say he was quoting Gen Abacha’s daughter, Gusum!)

Again, those pushing for the “sack”, abi, ” replacement” of of the Service Chiefs, must be those who have candidates tucked in their suitcases. They are those who proudly claim in beer parlours, ” that’s my boy! I put him there”!They deliberately ignore the FACT that a Commander is only as good as his officers and soldiers. Forget all textbooks. What really are the “local” orders? If a General tells his men, ” we tried our best” and so many unprintable speeches that border on acts that are clearly against order and military discipline, then, it will be sheer luck for that operation to succeed. I want to suggest to the Service Chiefs, especially, the Chief of Army Staff ( COAS), that a completely new approach must be taken. I have in previous posts given an example of what the German High Command did to the Partisans in France and Poland, especially.(WW2). A war is not gaming. It is life and death. Maybe, it’s about time to set up a Military Court( a Court Martial) in the NorthEast, to try ALL acts of sabotage. An identified “informant” is in the same category as s spy. And should be treated as such. Summary sentences of firing squad will send a grim message to all, that this is serious business. With the terrible massacre of 45 farmers recently, the Army must adopt an absolute “No quarters given. No quarters expected” Thus, the Army must know that ANY body “living” in Sambisa Forest, up till now, is Enemy. Burn Sambisa Forest Down!
Again, Mr President, don’t change the Service Chiefs. Such a step will give your enemies ammo to say that it is an acceptance of weakness and failure!

First, Governor Babagana Zulum of Bornu State travelled to Niger to ask that the the Nigerien Army return to the Multinational Joint Task Force(MNJTF). Who is he ? How dare he jump into a purely security matter? And now those clowns, who call themselves Governors of the NorthEast have plunged into calling for ” mercenaries”. I couldn’t believe such suicidal naivety. This shows that the Governors must be among those spreading disparaging remarks about the Military. The Military NEEDS the support of the local communities! But, with the attitude of these Governors, I’m afraid!

There’s no limit to the CNN’s unfettered IRRESPONSIBILITY. I note with sadness that both Nima Elbagi and Becky Anderson are still at their desks. This is quintessential Donald Trump. Condemn an action in others and endorse it for yourself! What is this MAD quest for Awards? Now, Arwa Damon has joined the fray. She just reported that 110 farmers were killed in Nigeria-. The United Nations has just apologized for accepting the figure the Amnesty International Nigeria gave out! The Boko Haram said they killed 78. The Nigerian National Assembly said 65 and the Nigerian Media said 43. This is sad. Journalism has been thrown into the gutters. All because desperation is driving some people to HATE President Buhari!
