Ozubulu Massacre: While Drug War Theory May Be Valid, Terrorism is Still Possible

It was a macabre Sunday in Ozubulu, Anambra State yesterday, August 6, 2017 where unknown gunmen stormed a Catholic church and mowed down defenseless worshippers in their numbers. The police from prima facie investigation called it a drug war brought home from South Africa, and said nothing about terrorism. The theory shows the extent we have gone into believing terrorism as only what religions, states or subnational groups do. Don’t get it twisted, private individuals can also mount terrorism. Assuming the drug theory is valid, why would the defenseless worshipers bear the brunt? This is where I suspected terrorism. A brief description of the concept of terrorism can help us here. The concept of terrorism has been defined in different colours and flavours but one thread runs through the assortment of definitions, and that is the fact that terrorism is a calculated attack by a combatant against a non-enemy in order to achieve effect on the perceived enemy. From this description above, I smelt terrorism in Ozubulu massacre. News has it that the gunmen went trigger happy after they shot the father of their perceived enemy at a close range. I believe that the intention of the act was to strike the right chord of fear in their perceived enemy. I decry in strong terms, that dastardly act. If this attack is terrorist, government should brace up against re-occurrence. Terrorists seldom forgive.

Is the Finsbury Park Attack A Terrorist Attack?

"I want to kill all Muslims" was what the man who carried out that attack was shouting when he was subdued and captured.

And it does sound very much like what a terrorist would say. But, he could as well be a mad man whose uncontrollable brain waves told to "kill all Muslims". Or he could be someone with a very deep grudge against the Muslims.

So, is he terrorist?

Technically speaking, the answer would be yes. The reason behind this is that he attempted a mass murder of all the Muslims coming out of the mosque in Finsbury Park, London.
If that doesn't look like what a terrorist could do, then we might need to invent a new meaning for the word 'terrorist'.

It is high time people stopped spitting on peoples way of life and faith. What everyone should be concerned about is how the state and standard of human life could be bettered.

How Many People Died In the Grenfell Tower Fire?

The 24 storey building located in North Kensington, west London,  busted in flames. That tragic incident which took place on 13th June got so many people devastated. Many lives were lost and several others are critically injured.

When the Met Police Commander Stuart Cundy was asked to make a statement on the number of victims of that accident that died or were injured.

He said that approximately 80 people died or were presumed dead (because they were missing) while 18 people is in critical care at the hospital.

However, he noted that they are still researching on the issue. So, the numbers are likely to change.

The government had already started releasing some funds to the families of the deceased and the injured.

Who Is Stealing The Nigerian Food Aid?

For a long time now, Nigeria had been the hot seat of many controversies and tragedies. This had led to the attraction of sympathy from countries near and far away from Nigeria on the map. This 'sympathy' normally comes in the shape of relief materials to those affected by Ebola, flood, and Boko Haram.

However, it has been reported by the acting president of Nigeria himself that most of the relief materials never reach the supposed recipients.

So, what's happening?
Who is diverting the relief materials? Or better put 'Who is stealing the Nigerian Relief Materials?'

It was recently that Mr Osibanjo, the acting President apologized to Saudi Arabia after 200 tonnes of dates the kingdom sent as a Ramadan gift were found on sale in local markets.

This makes Nigeria look more worse than it already is.

It was after that incident that two officials were arrested and jailed for being behind that silly act.
Are those two guys the only ones involved?

As a preventive measure, the Acting President assigned 1,000 soldiers to guard the next consignment of food  aids safely home.
