Eke Saturday 30 January 2021:
“Choose this day whom to serve, as for me and my household we shall serve the Lord”, so said Joshua to the people of Israel.
However, similar admonition should go to this ragtag outfit we have in the South east of Nigeria that calls itself IPOB.
For it is high time, they decide which path they will tow in pursuit of their dreams. Let them be emphatic, is it non-violence or the exact opposite?
Because when scores were killed in Ebonyi encounter, they vowed that thenceforth, what Nigerians are experiencing in the hands of Boko Haram would be a child’s play!
And just a couple of days ago, when they dislodged the Police of their van in Olu, they celebrated and boasted that they put the Force personnels to flight.
But when the Military intervened and the tide turned, they cried blue murder!
From all indications, it is apparent that non-violent struggle is alien to IPOB, and that is why they are vacillitating. So, the earlier IPOB chooses the path that suits it more, the better!
