FROM BOSTON TO KANO

By Sheikh Gumi

“Bothers ad sisters, if we contemplate very well, the Lessons learnt or not learnt from Boston to Kano this week holds the solutions to our insecurity issues in Nigeria.

In Boston, with good intelligence analysis, good governance and genuine cooperation of the local populaces, the terrorist were routed out without any harm in the populace way.

Also in Kano, one of the terrorist was killed by the repellent populace, a good prognosis of the change of things coming.

Therefore people in Nigeria should take on the fight themselves. People have four clearly defined enemies they have to fish out if we want security and peace to return to over neighborhoods. These four enemies are:

1. BH AND THEIR SYMPATHIZERS
2. MEND AND THEIR SUPPORTERS
3. EVIL ELEMENTS OF THE SECURITY OUTFIT
4. BAD GOVERNANCE

Sometimes these four enemies of the people work in unison and cooperate to perpetuate the state of insecurity that gripped the nation since 2011.

As for BH, every district should aspire to flush out suspicious people and document strangers. People should never allow strangers into their homes- how many people were shot or slaughtered by strangers. The claims by BH of establishing the sharia is known to everybody to be diabolical. Since there is no obstacle to Sharia Implementation in the Northern sharia states except of course the general ignorance about sharia itself, the lack of sufficient qualified Sharia court judges and the waning political zeal.

In Kaduna state at one time there was an advertisement for about 80 judges for which only about 27 applied, Allah knows how many were qualified. Of all the boko haram individuals, no one among them stands out as a qualified Qadi to dispense the Sharia law at its basic tenets. Lest anybody is deceived, never was any government or non-Muslim an obstacle to sharia but our own doing.

As for MEND individuals, their direct influence can be very limited as they can easily be apprehended if people are up to the task. That is if they decided to be active outside the sphere of their conclave. However, with the amnesty money flowing out of their pockets, their danger lies in their ability to finance terrorist groups. Some Chadians, Malians, Nigeriens and some northern Cameroonians are all there for the bidder. It is a catchment area for terrorist, assassins, robbers and criminals.

MEND should be taught that petroleum does not anymore become a local commodity for an ethnic group to monopolize. It is the pivot of strategic survival of many nations. If they want to deny their black brethren they cannot surely deny their Oyinbo masters. Is it then not enough for them, their enslavement in the southern plains of USA? Do they still extend free petrol power to the same masters that exploited them in the last century? Yet deny their kinsmen? They better wake up from daydreaming. Nobody can deny anybody the bounties of the earth. They should also know that, it is the rest of the Nigerians that are tolerant of them, with their instincts to criminality acknowledged worldwide, who wants to be a citizen with criminals? They should know that to share a country with them, they do nobody any favors.

As for the danger posed by the Evil elements of the security outfit it is unfortunately real. They are those that hide behind the uniform and harm the society because of ethnic or religious bigotry. They kill suspects with impunity and frame the innocents. People should document the security agents in their locality for the sake of posterity. I just heard that Musharraf is under house arrest. Nobody is above the law all the time.

As for Bad governance, it’s the pinnacle of the problem. Because with good governance, all these other groups can be effectively neutralized.

So as we watch out for bad elements in our society, whether, BH or MEND or BAD eggs of the security agents or BAD Governance, people should come together and bail out themselves from this servitude to evil people.

Allah Helps those who help themselves. “ ‘O ye who believe! if ye will support (the cause of) Allah, He will support you, and plant your feet firmly.” Q47/7.

May Allah protect us all from all Evil. Ameen!”
