Can You Die For Nigeria?

I remember about four to five years ago when this question was asked on our good ol' Sunday Sunday tonic,the evening Newsline then presented by Frank Olize.I was surprised how varied the answers of fellow Nigerians were.I am sure you will also be surprised at our candid answers.

Please,be as honest as the question deserves.

God bless Nigeria.

Angry, maybe. Because both of you derail threads with inanities; other folk might be interested in those threads. I see a thread and its all baby talk, I walk away. . .

This is the politics section where the first rule of common sense is seriousness.

becomerich does it all the time, so it has to be possible.

hahaha!! you people are so lame.

hahaha

dont be angry or jealous, or whichever one, just because we agree with each other half of the time.

when you guys cant come to your right mind, you always believe that someone else is another person.

the people that point the finger and accuse the most, are most likely the ones who go from account to account arguing to back themselves up.

how lame. lol

so how are sjeezy and I online and basically posting at the same time, if we are to be the same person?

its not possible.

just stop kidding yourself, lame-o.

dont you people ever get tired of arguing with each other?

the biafrans or whatever they call themselves will never give up. they stick firmly behind what they believe and will not change it for anything.

the yorubas or what not, believe what they believe, and i highly doubt someone can change their minds because they are stuck on what they believe in.

everyone believes what they believe.

its like a muslim arguing with a catholic.

they believe what they believe, and thats it.

and how am i a tribalist? since when dont i like yorubas?

or is that something you made up?

We yorubas didn't kill anyone the likes of the great AWO prevented any more biafrans from being shot by an army of which the majority where northerners.

Tell me how many times Igbos killed foreigners on their soil. Has it ever happened?

I think you misunderstood what he meant because he was right

If it was flipped and the Igbos were in the position of the Nigerian govt, The igbos would have savagely slaughtered 20 million people compared to those 2 million who died because of ojukuwus arrogance and immaturity.

The logic of my position is not meant for dimwits. So excuse me! And being from Edo (Bini specifically), what can I say to you? Your people waylaid and killed Igbos fleeing to the east from Lagos. I don't expect any rationality or even repentance from you.

So carry go!

The internet is the biggest supplier of information today. So go find out!

The only time you can qualify to ask that question is after the Edo or Bini have fought a war with Nigeria and survived, then you can ask that!

If the Nigerians weren't vandals, tell me why Nigeria can't even refine petroleum in peace time, something Biafra did in war time.

You are simply echoing the war time Nigerian propaganda. Haven't more than 20 million Nigerians died out of want and poverty since 1970?

Better still, didn't a Nigerian member of the house Ibn N'Allah recently call for the murder of 20 million Niger deltans for the sake of oil?

You people are just incurable!

Your father was Lawrence Anini -the notorious armed robber- who was executed in the 80s. All your female family members are prostitutes in Italy. Ewu!

People are dying for Nigeria everyday, from: lack of healthcare, armed robbers and kidnappers, oil war, grand theft by politicians, accidental discharge by police, roads full of death traps and many others. People are dying alright for her! Just not me, thank God!

Like I said, someone has to explain to me, Igbos and other minorities why innocent old people and children had to be starved to death in Biafra. You can trivialize this question all you want but real smart people know that if you don't address those things, it could repeat again.

If that question is not addressed, the N'allahs of this world are warming up for a repeat, this time in Niger delta.

I CANNOT DIE FOR NIGERIA because Nigeria kills innocents!

Am i missing something? Were those Biafran soldiers fighting for Nigeria or a sectional interest?

I would rather say that the Nigerian soldiers who fought for the unity of the country were those who wanted to die for the poor country.

Must you make Igbo and Biafran propaganda out of every political post?

I know some Biafran propagandists and revisionists would begin to rabble. I am ready for you. But please read the OP first before making your blighted comments here.

@Onlytruth

I'm really impressed with the way you can take any reasonable discussion and drag it to your level where you can make complete nonsense of everything and everyone.

How many people died in the Biafran war in total? Please, statistics and not "my father said".

You have to ask yourself if the Igbos did everything they could to win the war. Didn't they? But they didn't win the war still.

Were the Biafran soldiers taking Nigerian soldiers as prisoners of war? No. They were slaughtering them because Ojukwu had convinced them that the Nigerians were VANDALS. On the other hand, ask your father if the Nigerian Army did not take Biafran soldiers prisoners. In fact, ask Phillip Effiong and his colleagues.

The more dangerous and brutal army in the Biafran war was Ojukwu's which recruited lots of child soldiers because they know how easy it is to brainwash them and use them to unleash unhindered mass murder. The only good thing was that the Nigerian Army had superior firepower, training and personnel strength. If it were the Igbos, 20 million would have been dead.

OnlyTruth, I know your father did not fight in the Biafran war so all the stories he's told you which you are taking as the Only Truth you know today were cooked up in his sick head.

The day will come when you will die for Nigeria. When the enemy will come and you will realise they don't discriminate tribally, they're out for all. When Nigeria and all Nigerians are set for extermination, then you will know. You will know that the time for you to die for Nigeria has come.

Umm that was a quote from a biafran soldier.

How/Why would Nigerian soldiers give guns to Biafran soldiers?

So what happened? You took the guns and still starved the 50,000 to death right? I'm not even going into your games but I would say that if Biafra had 1000 guns, the 50,000 would still be alive today.

If Biafra had 40,000 rifles, the 2 million would still be alive today.

You were basically starving unarmed people to death! Cowards!

Im still wondering how Adekunle who led an Army of which the majority were non yorubas represents all yorubas.

Why did ojukwu lead teens into a war based on propaganda?

Why were the weak soldiers put in the on the frontline?

Why were non igbos placed around igboland?

Nigerian forces never even reached into igbo heartland.

“If you gave us the choice of 1000 rifles or milk for 50,000 starving children, we’d take the guns.”

very heartless and selfish dont you think?

How many Biafrans were summarily executed by the invading forces led by Adekunle?

Mind you some of those "Biafran Soldiers" were only 17 years olds. Some of the executed old men were too weak to run away with others as the federal forces approached.

I dont know but he didn't want to shoot up everythng like Gowon and adekunle did.

But how many aid planes did Ojuwku insists on putting guns on instead of food for those innocent women and children?

In your genocidal logic, the blame is Ojukwu's, right? Soon you will start blaming the Niger deltans for trying to defend their land. Dude, me and you no be "compatriot".  Get it!

Who were those who died besides women and children?

Due to the fact ojukwu decided to put guns on outside planes instead of food for his people.(those women and children who died)

So because those who believed in the cause for their people they were hearty and survived.

Are you trying to say those who died from starvation and weren't hearty, died because they didn't believe in the same cause?

What about ojukwu?

Which Biafran army was well fed? They were 'hearty" because they were true patriots who believed in the cause of their people. Those who fought and died for something worth dying for.
