Riba Haram Wanted To Spare The Children Of Nigeria

By Farouk Martins Aresa

When any of the militia starts setting empty schools of children ablaze, kidnapping children and old people, they have lost the essence of their causes.

It is revolting to any sense of justice and fair play that is epitomized in every religion. Children are the most precious gift in life and they are gentle, innocent and pure of any gripe we may have. Every book of religion crave that little children come to them since the Kingdom of Allah, God, Yahweh belong to those that have their conscience.  
 
What is next? Are we going to see body parts of children split all over the place on international television pointing out how crude and primitively we practice their religions? This has gone beyond any reasonable cause, induced madness or religious spells and charms. Those perpetrating mayhem on children will not go unpunished by their own gods and devils. They have revealed themselves to the rest of Nigeria and the world that they are charlatans without genuine causes.
 
It is one thing to target adults that you see as oppressors but quite another to try and hurt those that have no inkling of why they deserve to be targeted for such ungodly acts. Those that try to justify any cowardly act on children as collateral damage are scums of the earth that will never enjoy or see a single virgin in heaven. MEND lost sympathy when they overreached and started bloody mayhem on the weak, old, women and children. 
 
The competition for the Government of Nigeria by terrorist groups trained outside the Country has grown to unpredictable disaster. You can only rule Nigeria if you are either backed by a terrorist group functioning within the Armed Forces or outside of it. When police looked the other way so that terrorists could go free and our court of law granted bail to terrorist, even God cannot come down and save us since we know what we are doing.
 
Many Nigerians claim that the politicians know what to do but will not do so because it may not be in their personal interest. Africa also has its share of brilliant men and women that are problem solvers but they will not be engaged locally because these are highly principle people that do not succumb to the wishes and caprices of Any Party In Power.
 
It is only cowards that pick on the innocent and the unarmed people like children, hardworking “bloody” civilians or drivers and conductors on our roads. They call us easy target because they have to work harder to penetrate the formidable security of the rich and the powerful. But when deals go wrong between militia and the police or the military that rent arms to and encourage hooligans, they start fighting one another turning our communities into war zones.
 
It is very humiliating that Nigeria that has one of the best peace keeping force in the world has to seek international assistance to fight our own local devils. Even when these devils have outside influence to destabilize Nigeria, no foreign soldier will die on our soil willingly by claiming they are protecting democracy. Instead, our leaders will compromise our national security. What our leaders will not disclose locally is fed to foreign governments freely.
 
We are begging OPC, MASSOB, Boko Haram and MEND amongst us to please redirect and channel their grievances where it can make the greatest impact on their lives and those of fellow Nigerians by joining together as RIBA HARAM so that we can fight the corrupt powers that ail our Nation. It is unfortunate that there is no coordination between the militia to face the common enemies of our Country.
 
Dedicated Nigerian youths, that want to rescue their Country from politicians must find a common ground for the next mission after Take Nigeria Back demonstrations failed to ignite the conscience of looters. If you are sure you have the bravery, determination and can be very passionate about Nigeria like our ethnic militia brothers, come on. Those in the Northern part of the Country already enrolled as Boko Haram members can redeploy into RIBA HARAM.
 
Jobless Nigerian youths have been sitting idle looking for a cause for a long time. Out of frustration, they have formed various militia along ethnic lines. It is well known that some of their efforts have been exploited against the Country they love and want to inherit. Since a house divided within itself cannot stand, politicians have been encouraging divisions of the youths to the detriment of the Country.
 
These divisions are exhibited in the acts of political thugs, union of transport workers and of course, ethnic militia. There is no common goal amongst them but where the money is coming from and the goal of the founders to loot the Central Bank of Nigeria legally or illegally. There is no shortage of fund to accomplish personal and selfish goals but when it comes to mobilization of the same fund to better the lives of the common folks and improve infrastructure, we get all kinds of excuses.
 
When these youths are not recruited by militia, youths that some years ago would never dream of being armed robbers or prostitute are now easily recruited because they are desperate to for money to buy what politicians created at the window shopping malls. They also, like everyone else need to raise families, take care of body and soul. When people are poor and desperate, you can never predict their next action.
 
Many have observed that the frequency of collecting money at the road blocks is much higher in the South than in the North because of more tolerance for bribes in the South. We cannot imagine police demanding money at road block from militia. The same Armed Forces of Nigeria cannot tame Boko Haram or MEND in their communities, yet they pick on unarmed civilians shooting them to death over 20 or 50 naira. Life is so cheap that it can be taken away for so little.
 
Therefore we are calling on the youths of Nigeria to join hands together to empower RIBA HARAM. We can start from the police bribe on the roads. Corruption is so endemic in Nigeria, various chiefs of police cannot stop police from taking bribes at road blocks. At least about three chiefs of police have been defied by their subordinates and everyone went back to business as usual. They claimed they need the bribes as family support, maintenance of vehicles and kickbacks to the higher up.

ONE THING THAT WILL CONTINUE TO CAUSE THE DEATH OF MORE NIGERIANS IN THE HANDS OF BOKO HARAM IS THE ASSUMPTION WE TEND TO MAKE THAT BOKO HARAM MEMBERS FELL FROM THE SKIES AND FOR NO REASON START TO BOMB AND SHOOT PEOPLE IN 2009. WE ASSUME THAT BEFORE THE END OF 2009 NOTHING HAPPEN, SUDDENLY BOKO HARAM STARTED THE OKADA SHOOTINGS FOR NO REASON.

UNFORTUNATELY BOTH THE PRESIDENT AND MOST EDUCATED SOUTHERNERS ARE WORKING ON THIS ERRONOUS ASSUMPTION. ITS TIME WE STAND UP AND LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENNED IN MAIDUGURI IN 2009. UNLESS THAT MASS MURDER IS REVISITED AND JUSTICE DONE EVERY NIGERIAN IS IN DANGER.

we are growing to a state of anarchy

it baffles me to read this kind of article at this stage of modernization. many things are obviously wrong with this article.
1. The writter fail to realize that religion shoudnt have a factor in politics, one major thing that nigeria fail to realize from the onset of her democrazy and its killing us till now.
2. you cannot place massob. mend and opc one the note with boko harram... the formers have a just course and to some extent are just in their approach.. boko harram has in all there way shows that they dont have basics and no resonable course for whichthey fight for.
3. riba harram as it is i believe its apart that break up from the dreaded boko harram.. so why should the youth associate themselves with a group thats has killed, bombed and slain their loved once.
whatever their vission maybe its not welcome in anyway.

YOU OPPOSE THE WRITER IN HIS CONCLUSIONS UNFORTUNATELY YOU ENDED UP BACKING HIS CONCLUSIONS WITH EVIDENCE. EVERYTHING YOU SAID ABOUT THE BOKO HARAM APPLIES PERFECTLY TO OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS SUCH AS MEND AND OPC AND THE SOUTHEAST KIDNAPPERS AND RITUAL RAPISTS. FROM THEIR CAUSE, MARGINALISATION, TO THEIR METHODS, BOMB PLANTING AND INDESCRIMINATE ATTACK. YOU TAKE EXCEPTION TO B/H BECAUSE IT IS AN ISLAMIC GROUP, BUT THEY USE RELIGION JUST LIKE YOUR RAPISTS AND KIDNAPPERS USE CULTS OR THE OPC USES TRIBE!

MY ONLY PROBLEM IS THE FAILURE OF THE WRITER TO INCLUDE THE NIGERIAN GOVT IN THE LIST OF THOSE THAT KILL CHILDREN. THE ALJAZEERA FOOTAGE OF THE KILLINGS IN BORNO OF A LOT OF UNDERAGE CHILDREN BY THE POLICE EXTRA-JUDICIALLY IS AN ABHORRENT VIEW TO ALL MEN OF CONSCIENCE.

u can only get to the promised land tru a national confab

Rather than go for a national confab following the cold blooded murder of Abiola, among other issues such as the hanging of kensarowiwa we foolishly went for an election that gave birth to OBJ. Not because we felt we were unified or pained enough to say let us vote for late Chief Gani who gave all for the good of 9ja. Were we all bribed into ditching late Gani a Moslem? Let us think of the sacrifices of the two Moslem men-if as some disgruntled tribalist say that Abiola was a rogue fine. Did we reject Gani because he was a national thief? We are where we are as a nation because of our over dependence on the oily resources of the SS. BH suicide bomber, left over 4m in his bank account for his family. So its wrong for some to tell me that, poverty and unemployment are the main driving force behind BH-its big lie! The whole thing has to do with a religious ideology which some failed fetish minds want to impose on the nation. Militants in the ND want resource control-BH nko? Quoran.

U cannot mix religion with politics

TOO SIMPLISTIC,THE WRITER IS IN DENIAL

First of all the lumping of MEND,OPC,MASSOB with Boko-haram is in bad taste,it does not depict the true state of affairs in the country.The north has to face the reality on the ground,boko-haram is a terrorist organisation with a very narrow minded islamic agenda,the factors like poverty,marginalization,corruption,extra judicial killings etc always used as excuses by northerners to deflect blame for the barbarity of this sect does not apply only to the north or moslems,rather these factors are universal in Nigeria.Also the prospect of all youth coming together to correct the ills of soceity is only feasible when a level playing field has been established,for now the constitution has to be revisited to address issues fundermental to our existence as one entity,this should be the paramount concern of any citizen who still wishes to keep Nigeria one.
Establishing a society based on sound democratic values and accountability is the goal,not disintigration.
