IBB Murders: Major Ibrahim Babangida and Major Mammam Vatsa At Okigwe In 1969

Major Ibrahim Babangida, the self-aclaimed "evil genius" and Nigeria's most corrupt dictator is seen here standing with his bossom friend (both of them Army Majors) in Okigwe in 1969. 17 years later IBB framed Vatsa in a phantom coup. He set up a military tribunal to try the "coupists" but the tribunal which had the input of  Babangida's minister of defence, Major General Domkat Bali found no evidence of Vatsa's involvement. But blood thirsty IBB won't have any of that, he had to kill Vatsa.

When Vatsa was facing the firing squad, he was asked what his last words were, he didn't say much, after checking what time it was, he removed his wristwatch and asked his would be killers to pass it on to his wife.

 IBB went on to become one the biggest socio-political menace to confront the Nigerian state. In 1993, he annulled Nigeria's freest election that he 'd organized, claiming that he had access to security reports that would have led Nigeria on the part of war. Almost 17 years after, Babangida wants to come back to power. You can imagine what he will do to Nigerians if he could have done this to Vatsa!

IBB A MENACE TO NIGERIA

I am tired of discussing IBB. I have argued albeit bitterly with so many of my friends who belived as I do that IBB is the most corrupt person in the whole of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This notwithstanding I still argue in favor of his innocence until he is proven guilty by a court of competent jurisdiction.
My argument in favor of his innocence until proven guilty is without prejudice to my convinction and to the general believe that IBB is inherently corrupt. However, I find it very hard to believe that the federal government with all the security apparatus at its disposal cannot succesfully investigate and bring IBB to justice. Until the government develop the spine to bring IBB to justice he will still remain innocent in the eye of justice. He will also remain free to pursue his dream like every bona fide Nigerian.

@Ebele David, answer these simple questions.

@Ebele David, answer these simple questions.
If you say NO to any of them, then you are comparing Apples to Oranges my friend.

By the way his name is General Norman Schwarzkopf.

a)Were these generals ever involved in multiple coups?
b)Did they send letter bombs to civilians?
c)Did they ever become heads of State unconstitutionally?
d)Were they ever involved in gun running, OIL bunkering and illegal drug dealings?
e) Were they ever in the service of a foreign intelligence service?
f)Did they ever frustrate a genuine democratic process they themselves confessed is the best ever conducted.
g)Did they SAP the hell out of their Nationals?
h)Do they abide by and follow their strict religious dictates?
i)Did they obey the constitution of their countries?
j)Did they operate above the laws of their countries?

There is a great book that I know that says
"Don't envy the wicked. Don't covet his riches for the evil man has no future; his LIGHT will be SNUFFED out."

As a side issue, I sense that IBB'S desperation at becoming Nigerian President again is because he wants RESTITUTION!

Unfortunately Nigerians no longer trust him and cannot trust him again. He spat on their graves so many times that they are deeply hurt beyond redemption.

If I were Isa Odidi, his accomplice in Canada, I would be advising him right now to come out clean, negotiate for Amnesty, after all everyone is doing it. He should then set up a massive Philanthropic project on the scale of Bill Gates. IBB unfortunately feels too glorified to be truly PENITENT. The only lesson for him now is to bite the dust. Time is running out!

you cant deceive us

you cant deceive us anymore....those of you who turn around to demonise ibb after patnering him in your genocidal war against ibos are simply dishonest...what about your brothers obasanjo and adekunle?...ibb murdered vasta but he allowed him the benefit of judicial defence. the ota monster murdered did not allow bola ige similar defence.you yoruba people are so terrible that you become unable to tell yourselves the truth....the hausas are far better than you and ibos are starting to find out....abacha understood the workings of the yoruba mind and tried to deal with it properly....after your war criminal and tribalistic awo laid the foundation of tribalism for our country,you hail him as a great nationalist.after your abiola corrupted our military,you hail him as a democrat.after your incestous ota ape spent eight years cleaning out the treasury and murdering innocent women and children in odi and zaki abiam,you hail him as the greatest president ever...no nigerian takes a yoruba person seriously anymore...you guys should wake up and see that you are sorrounded .we continue to thank God for helping us defeat the evil plans of your awo against our people...and for those of you fools who think that a yoruba has ever ruled nigeria,think again because only the military has.the people who have ruled nigeria are zik,balewa,shagari,yaradua and now jonathan..

I B B WILL DIE LIKE A FOWL

I B B WILL DIE LIKE A FOWL RAN OVER BY TIPPER TRUCK

IBB should be killed like he

IBB should be killed like he did to VATSA,the problem of Nigeria is IBB if this animal is eliminated,there will be peace in that country

Enough of these IBB things

You seems to be making IBB a hero by continuously reporting about him, pls note that this man was a retired military general, soldiers are train to fight wars, does it mean retired generals Collin Powel, swasckopp etc in the US army should be call murderers for people killed in Iraq war ? We are tired of these old same stories of Dele Giwa, June 12 etc while the economy is sliding and there is general insecurity like violent armed robbery, kidnapping, bombing etc in Nigeria. Invite these aspirant to a debate and let us hear their strategy about the way forward in 2011 as suggested by Atiku.

IBB THE MURDERER, DRUG PUSHER!

IBB, ABACHA, SHAGARI, UMARU DIKKO, YAR'ADUA, ADEDUBU, TINUBU, YERIMA, ARISEKOLA, ABDULSALAM ETC ETC. THESE ARE JUST A FEW PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN ENTRUSTED WITH GOVERNANCE IN NIGERIA. THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE SUPPOSE TO BE MUSLIMS, WHO WERE BRED IN MUSLIM HOMES, READ THE AL-QURAN AND ARE SUPPOSED TO PRAY FIVE TIMES A DAY. THESE ARE SOME OF THOSE WHOM ALLAH (SWT)OUT OF PROVIDENCE GRANTED HIS MERCIES AND BESTOW HIS GOODNESS. YET, LIKE SO MANY OTHER SO CALLED "MUSLIM LEADERS", THEY HAVE CONTRIBUTED IMMENSELY TO THE CORRUPTION OF THE LANDSCAPE, THEY HAVE TWISTED THE MEANING OF SHARIA'A TO THEIR PERSONAL, PAROCHIAL ADVANTAGE (ONLY FOR POLITICAL AND SELFISH ENDS). THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN WHAT ALLAH (SWT)SAID IN THE QUARAN ABOUT PEOPLE LIKE THEM. IF THEY DO REMEMBER THE APPOINTED TIME WHICH IS CERTAIN (DEATH)THEY WILL INDEED HEED THE CALL OF RIGTHEOUSNESS. FOR THAT WHICH IS WITH ALLAH (SWT)IS INEXHAUSTIVE, BUT THAT WHICH IS WITH MAN IS VANITY!

Obasanjo and Yoruba Sleep too

Someone asks: How does IBB sleep at night?
The same Obasanjo sleeps after killing many in 1966 and then returned to kill some more from 1999 to 2007. Obasanjo is still killing today by enslaving Yoruba people in Ekiti and Oyo. After killing many people to save One Nigeria, Obasanjo sleeps well today knowing that he has succeeded in enslaving the Yoruba race.

This confirms numerous

This confirms numerous accusations of a mastercraft murder genius that have trailed the career of Mr. Babangida. How can he frame his comrade in arms and effected his (Vatsa's) killing all without any remorse, and yet he wants to be president again, ostensibly to finish off his remaining percieved enemies? I have read elsewhere that he was involved in the letter bomb that killed a journalist, Mr. Dele Giwa. Wasn't he, along with Mr. David Mark, the current senate president, the signatories of the document that annulled the most credible election that the country ever had? Only in a country called Nigeria can someone who annulled a democratic election aspire to be elected and be a president instead of serving time in jail.

IBB wanted to divide Ndigbo by saying that if he is allowed to be president, he would serve one term and handover the presidency to an Igboman. Hear his arrogant self, as if the constitution of Nigeria gives him the sole authority to determine whom the presidency will be bequeated to, instead of through democratic means of negotiations among the six zones that make up the commonwealth. This time, he was outmanouvered by Mr. Ohakim who locked out his (Babangida's) minions. Mr. IBB, change is in the air, and the good people of Nigeria are tired of old recycled individuals! Wake up and smell the beautiful rose!!

Riff-Raff

This riff-raff was a Major in this picture? No wonder the Nigerian Army is what it is today, if a riff-raff like this can 'rise' to 'lead' the 'army'. Compare these to Major Nzeogwu three years earlier. There was no comparison in the professionalism. just look at them, they look like they are Lance-Corporals.

Babangida will die like a dog

Babangida will die like a dog

HE TOO WILL SURELY DIE SOON

HELL SURELY AWAITS THE FOOL......GOOD THING IS THAT HE WILL SURELY DIE SOON WITH THE WAY HE LIMPS WHEN HE WALKS....I AM SURE MAMMAN VATSA'S SOUL WILL WAIT TO SEE HIM DROIN ON HIS WAY TO HELL....LETS SEE HOW HE WILL EVER RULE OUR DEAR LAND AGAIN....BABANFOOLY!!COMMON THIEF AND MURDERER!

a coup is a coup

Vasta bought the job, a law introduced by Obsanjo during his time as the head of state, is't because late Abacha safed his life becaused we all knew Obasanjo could have face the music as well because he introduced the law and he was involved in a coup during Abacha's time

Correction

I don't like IBB one bit, but please ensure your facts are right. The tribunal that condemned Vatsa was chaired by Maj Gen Charles Ndiomu, and it pronounced Vatsa guilty. Bali was Minister of Defence at the time and claimed rather belatedly that there was insufficient evidence against Vatsa to warrant a death sentence. Much like medicine after death.

IBB Murders

Your childhood friend should always be your best friend for life but if you become too greedy in life to kill your friend then you will never go to heaven. As a Muslim, there would be no virgins awaiting you in heaven. Do not deceive your tentacles. IBB is synonymous of this too the devil would be awaiting him as he would die a very bad death like a piece of dog ran over by a truck.

The things men do lives after

The things men do lives after them

IBB the Killer

How does this man sleep at night?

A friend Indeed is a fried in need
