Nigerian Armed Forces at 61: A Metaphor For A Declining Nation

Life shouldn’t be meant for the confused however the courageous! It’s because it is just the courageous that has the center to face life in any respect price.

The confused politicians have recruited the troopers and different safety forces to assist them to supervise Nigeria from its earlier heyday with optimism and good financial system to its present comatose state. One can conclude that the armed forces’ involvement in politics mixed with their report of brutal dictatorship, drafting of the present structure and their fixed deployment by serving governments throughout elections, are simply as complicit within the decline of the nation in addition to its coverage makers

The Nigerian safety businesses have been the bravest on paper in addition to towards civilians. Their paper bravery received them a repute in Africa whereas their unwell manners towards unarmed civilians paint them as terrorists, enemies and threats to each civilian. However is the Nigerian safety actually all that courageous? If bravery is braveness and fearlessness in entrance of the enemies and succesful threats, then Nigerian forces might by no means ever qualify as being courageous.

In hindsight, Nigerians extremely rated their safety forces excessive however slowly, have disappointedly misplaced confidence in them and the whole lot about them! With every dangerous authorities that is available in, their scores plunged until the present terror tainted authorities opened the floodgates of tyranny and terror from the armed forces of Nigeria.

First, I need to state it clearly about their operations viz a viz the assault on the house of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Adeyemi also referred to as Sunday Igboho, in 2017 and 2021 respectively. The style and mode of the operations are condemnable and don’t even appear to be safety operations however relatively, like terrorists operations. The next denial of the safety forces of their involvements in such raids whereas opposite proof was already broadcasted to most of the people, solely introduced them extra ridicule than insulation.The safety that broke into the peaceable houses of the 2 activists and the extent of carnage, destruction of personal property and killings, clearly present that the operations of the Nigerian securities are by no means removed from that of Boko Haram, ISWAP, and lots of different terrorists.

The #Endsars protest taught the lots many issues concerning the Nigerian securities, their cowardice, and modus operandi. Through the protest, I personally noticed monsters who don’t have conscience nor respect for the Nigerian nation they declare to be defending. The usage of excessive caliber bullets on protesters who chanted the Nigerian anthem and held the Nigerian flag cemented their repute among the many millennial inhabitants. In the meantime, it didn’t carry pageant of praises to them however a pageant of tears to the folks of various climes.

The weak spot and the misplaced of struggle by the Nigerian safety businesses towards Boko Haram, ISWAP, Fulani killer herdsmen, so-called bandits etcetera, have undoubtedly a lot to say about cowardly attitudes than bravery, based mostly on bills and outcomes. Eyewitnesses have attested that the troopers at all times run for his or her security every time they see these terrorists. There have been so many assaults on military bases within the Northern part of Nigeria the place tens, tons of and 1000’s of troopers have misplaced their lives and have equally abandoned the military bases as they ran for security. The current assault on the Nigerian Defence Academy and the kidnapping of some officers by bandits communicate volumes.

Whereas the assaults are on in North-East and  North-West areas, extra safety brokers are being deployed to the South-East to extort from motorists, bloodbath harmless civilians, and burn down homes.


They terrorize residents of the area, arrest and abduct many within the identity of stopping peaceable Indigenous Individuals Of Biafra (IPOB), from their quest for Biafra or restoring peace in areas with the lowest crime charges within the nation. Simply final week, it was revealed in a video, how the Nigerian troopers burned down over seventy (70) houses together with a king’s palace and killed many youths in Izombe, in Imo State, after taking sides between warring oil bunkerers. A commander of the Nigerian troopers in Izombe was additionally caught directing troopers to “kill anyone you see”.

The involvement of the Division of State Providers (DSS) officer within the unknown gunmen operations after a shoot out with policemen, can be proof that in disguise, many outrageous assaults on the report may very well be traced to authorities forces.

Then, their operating away from unknown gunmen, whom they’ve been trying to find, has judged that the Nigerian securities are relatively cowards and never courageous!

Always remember, that “beating, intimidating or killing these hapless residents you swore to serve is rarely bravery however cowardice !”
