Opinion: We are Nigerians and we are not terrorists

by Afolayan Daniel

Boko-Haram-23

How dare anyone call us terrorists?… America should know that lots of questions should be raised. What’s the genesis of terrorism in Nigeria? Who should be held responsible?

Finally and unfortunately,Nigeria is now being mentioned in the same wavelength as war torn countries such as Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and the simple question that props out of our lips is ”how did we get here?” Yes we quickly say Boko harm…the name of the monstrous sect that kills and abducts at will. We are now the biggest joke in the world..imagine!!! The giant of Africa now going round the world for military aid.

More so,our citizens round the world are subjected to humiliating screening procedures when travelling to other countries,people are now afraid whenever they  hear you’re from Nigeria. It has gotten to a nadir where the world sees we Nigerians as terrorists. Boko Haram might be designated as a terrorist group … accepted … But we? An outright NO

How dare anyone call us terrorists?… America should know that lots of questions should be raised. What’s the genesis of terrorism in Nigeria? Who should be held responsible? Simple answers! yeah!..when you remember the missile of the past 54 years as a nation and and the mess we’ve made with DEMOnotation of CRACYness for the past 15 years…that’s the cause…add failure of leadership and political class..then you’re almost there..not forgetting all failed governmental institution from the shoeless to the heartless to the clueless..all are responsible..where corruption is no longer a crime…we know the terrorist among us…tell the average Nigerian on the Street..he’ll point them out to you.

The UN, USA, and the entire world should now know also…they should know who to harass..they should know the terrorists that make us cry everyday, that have stolen our dreams..we are peaceful and good people..We are Nigerians…and we are not terrorists.
