Make no mistake; the only government I have not been able to criticize or find a fault- is the government of Nyesom Wike. Wike is such a gallant governor who is aware that result is the only means to paying back the people of Biafra in Rivers the confidence put in him. He has worked hard and keeps working to make sure he delivered political dividend and restore the pride of his state. We all saw how he fought for that seat; he put up ancient Biafran determination, such determination that stood British driven Nigeria in 1967. Amaechi needed the state so badly; to deliver it into the hands of the enemy but Wike was there for the people and he delivered us from the hands of the enemy. Wike’s government is not only his government; its people-oriented government and with the eyes of the enemy coming through Amaechi; Rivers will continue to be a fragile state. The fragility of the state will cause a lot of problems for us; we will make mistakes and inflict ourselves in an effort to hold tight or avoid any sentiment. This is what became of Don Waney, he is a victim of that fragility and that fragility has beclouded our sense of judgment. We will continue to make mistake and sometimes thrive in error whilst we think we are thriving on the sound wings of perfection. Don Waney; last year, news broke out that he was murdered for kidnapping and killing, some of us rejoiced without asking why will Don Waney kill his own people and kidnap them. Don Waney is a militant like every other militant and we all know what militants do, they engage oil companies and secure oil facilities but when not given attention, they destroy oil facilities and in critical situation, kidnap foreign oil workers, that is the modus operandi of militants in that part of Biafra. Militants don’t engage in mass killing of their own people, let alone killing those returning from place of worship. No, we all know what our militants are capable of doing; they are not capable of religious killing. What happened on New Year eve in Amoku where scores of worshipers were gunned down is an orthodox terrorist attack and not a criminal thing. The worshipers murdered while returning from church were not robbed neither were they killed for a designated reason. They were killed simply because those that killed them love killing and more especially the killing targeted Christians hence they were returning from crossover night observed by Christians. Yet; Don Waney who few days before that day denied allegations against him cannot kill worshippers. No; don’t even give the little dog the name of Jihadist-Fulani herdsmen terrorist. The government of Nyesom Wike categorically said that Don Waney is a cultist and cultism has been a traditional thing in Rivers- courtesy of the white head bloated grammarian- but mass murder of worshippers is not part of the cultism we know. Rotimi Amaechi tried to take advantage of the killing to attack the stable government of Nyesom Wike hence forcing Wike to press desperate button. The idea of calling a dog a bad name to kill it is not farfetched; to cover the gap, Don Waney will be labeled the murderer and killed and the government of Rivers will score a high political point, they killed the killer of the people of the state. Yet; when this killer is killed, killing of Christians will not stop, who is then fooling who?

The media took up the news without critically assessing it; days before the killing of Don Waney, he made a press statement stating that he is a peaceful man and was never responsible in the kidnap and murder of his own people. Few people that knew Don Waney cleared the air that he is not a mass murderer but a victim of political game. The government can as well tell us when militants became terrorists. And Wike can explain how placing a bounty on the heads of militants while Fulani herdsmen walk free everyday is solution to the killings in Rivers and beyond. We are always quick to use our nkpo nkpo sense; Wike has started labeling militants’ terrorists and mass murderers and tomorrow, the federal government will declare them terrorists and repeat more Odi massacre. We are calling in the enemy; setting our house on fire to kill a rat; Wike should be mindful of his actions and terms. Don Waney is not a terrorist and neither is he a mass murderer; Fulani herdsmen killed the Christians returning from worship and not Don Waney. We are now afraid to call a spade a spade; we are now afraid to admit that Fulani are terrorists but taking any little chance we have to label our own terrorists and quickly murder them to score a political point.

Fulani herdsmen were never labeled mass murderers or cultists; they were labeled angry brothers killing infidels. No bounty was placed on the head of any Fulani man in Nigeria but Wike quickly placed a bounty on the head of youths fighting for crumb from the master’s table in the name of resource control. Mass murder is alien to our people and Don Waney and those listed to be killed by the government are nothing but irritant youths and not murderers or terrorists. Meanwhile; the Nigerian army quickly learned assault business because it’s not Fulani herdsmen, they ran to the home of Don Waney and shot him to death because those that are kill-able were involved but to assault Fulani herdsmen became a taboo. I urge the government of Rivers state to go back home and investigate the killing of worshipers to avoid wrong target. By going after the wrong people and excluding the perpetrators, we are only worsening our situation.

In a bit to come after irritants youths that have opposing perception of Wike government or who refused to work with the government of Wike should not lead to futuristic damage. We must engage with caution and I also urge the Biafran youths in Rivers to shun cultism and help the good government of Wike to achieving its aim.
