30 Killed As Herdsmen Strike Again, T.B. Joshua’s Wife Narrates Husband’s Last Moments, Ohanaeze Blasts Northern Elders

2023 Presidency: “North behind disaster in South-East” – Ohanaeze Ndigbo

Pro-igbo group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has stated that Northern Nigeria is behind the insecurity currently plaguing the south-east.

According to the Secretary-general of the group, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the North exported violence to the South-east.

“The North is responsible for all the disaster in the South-east based on the earlier warning of the USA Embassy Abuja, ‘that Northern bandits and killer herdsmen are changing positions to Southern Nigeria to wreak havoc and destabilize the zones’.

“Northern Elders are behind the chaos in Nigeria as a ploy to retain the Presidency in the North beyond 2023, as they did to Jonathan in 2015, so they exported violence to the southeast to keep Igbo leaders busy with insecurity challenges and set traps for them(Igbo leaders) to fall in and get arrested.”

The group also attacked a former governor of Sokoto state, Aliyu Wammako.

“Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide had cautioned former Sokoto Governor, Aliyu Wamakko over impulsive comments without any iota of truth, which is capable of inciting ethnic cleansing and turmoil in the country.”

“It’s laughable that the likes of Wamakko couldn’t proffer solutions to the insecurity challenges in the North for the last 7 years, which the north incubated as a political instrument to oust power from former President Goodluck Jonathan and install the incumbent.”

“We are amazed at how someone who couldn’t remove a spark of dust in his eyelashes could see the remedy for the log of wood in the eyes of Ndigbo”.

“Rhetorically, Wamakko’s assertion that Igbo leaders are behind the scenes motivating the violence in the southeast, exposed the northern secrets of supporting bandits and Boko Haram for economic and political reasons .The silence of Igbo leaders are Golden and will generate confusion in the camps of sponsors of terror in the Southeast.”

In a statement released on his official social media accounts, the church revealed that T.B Joshua passed on June 5 at 57 years.

Although the cause of death was not revealed, the statement says, “God has taken His servant Prophet TB Joshua home – as it should be by divine will”

Recounting the late minutes of the man of God, his wife Evenly stated that T.B. Joshua left for his chambers after a stretch of prayers even though he did not show any signs of illness.

A source close to the family revealed to DAILY POST that Evelyn made this known during a meeting with some foreign visitors.

“He ended the race prayerfully. She revealed that he spent about three hours in prayers before the last service on the mountain and was looking very healthy. She said he never showed any sign of illness or worry and that his main concern was about the prayer line they offered to Indians against the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Afterward, he came up to shower and was left alone to have some time to prepare for service as worship had started. Few Minutes later, he stepped out for ministrations. While ministering, He spoke about a time to come and time to leave.” Evelyn was quoted.

“According to her, his statements were spiritual and suddenly, he left the stage and went to his inner chambers. She waited a few minutes and thereafter decided to check on him. And she met him sitting on the chair like someone reflecting but unconscious. She quickly beckoned on his disciples who came and tried to revive him to no avail. Of a truth, he went home to be with the Lord and left us with a message, watch and pray.”

He said the herdsmen were believed to have come from Nasarawa State, passed through the neighbouring local government of Gwer West in a guerrilla-style for the attack.

Wole Soyinka Backs Biafra, Oduduwa Republics’ Agitators, Says It’s Their Right To Secede

Nobel laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, has said those calling for the sovereign nations of Biafra and Oduduwa have rights as free citizens to call for secession.

In a statement, the professor criticised the use of force against the agitators of self-determination, insisting it is the responsibility of the leadership to persuade them. “It is time to think outside the box. That many, in so doing, find no landing place except dissolution, is not a crime. It is not peculiar to any peoples, and is embedded in the ongoing history of many, and not only on this continent.

“It is their natural right as free citizens, not slaves of habit and indoctrination. Where disillusion rides high, sentiment tumbles earthwards, and the only question becomes: what can be salvaged? It thus remains the responsibility of leadership to persuade them, through both discourse and remedial action, that there are other options. Attempted bullying is not a language of discourse, nor the facile ploy of tarring all birds with the same feather,” he said.

While speaking on President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement about the genocidal threat, Soyinka said while he was not in support of those killing and destroying government’s properties, the President’s statement to ‘deal with them in the language they understand’ was wrong and ‘tragically untimely.’

“I hold no brief for those who resort to burning down police stations, slaughter their occupants simply for the crime of earning a measly monthly pittance, torch electoral offices, assassinate politicians in calculated effort to set sections of the country against others in the promotion of their own political goals.

“These are largely nihilists, psychopaths and/or criminal lords, soul mates of Boko Haram, ISWAP, Da’esh and company, not to be confused with genuine liberators. All over the world, throughout history, elections are denounced, boycotted, and generally delegitimized without recourse to wanton butchery.

“When, however, a Head of State threatens to ‘shock’ civilian dissidents, to ‘deal with them in the language they understand’, and in a context that conveniently brackets opposition to governance with any bloodthirsting enemies of state, we have to call attention to the precedent language of such a national leader under even more provocative, nation disintegrative circumstances. What a pity, and what a tragic setting, to discover that this language was accessible all the time to President Buhari, where and when it truly mattered, when it would have been not only appropriate, but deserved and mandatory!

“When Benue was first massively brought under siege, with the massacre of innocent citizens, the destruction of farms, mass displacement followed by alien occupation, Buhari’s language – both as utterance and as what is known as ‘body language’ – was of a totally different temper. It was diffident, conciliatory, even apologetic.

“After much internal pressure, he eventually visited the scene of slaughter. His language? Learn to live peacefully with your neighbours. The expected language, rationally and legitimately applied to the aggressors, was exactly what we now hear – ‘I shall shock you. I shall deal with you in the language you understand,’” he said.
