Peradventure, the national assembly will enact a law making every Nigerian citizen, a citizen and resident of wherever his abode is, hence putting an end to this anomaly of 'indigene and settler' prevalent throughout every Nigeria community. It is ridiculous that Nigerians from certain parts of the country are not allowed full and complete integration in other parts of Nigeria where their grandfathers had settled and called home for a very very long time ago; sometimes for over one century? Something is definitely not right with a situation where some peoples' forebears have maintained a continuing residence in a place for over 100 years and are still being treated as foreigners and strangers; and within the country's boarders? But barring any foreseeable solution, maybe a Lebanese religious-war solution will be the only option starring Jos in the face down the road, where a truce will eventually be called; provided Saudi Arabia stays out and a Baghdad-kind of wall erected to separate and segregate these fanatics from each other? Icheoku says, such a child's brain picture as seen above is rather too disturbing to be a daily routine for the people of Jos Nigeria; and hence we call for an immediate and permanent solution thereto; admitted that Acting President Jonathan Goodluck's last assertion that Nigeria have seen the last/end of such carnage was laid waste by the current upheaval. But should Nigerians allow the situation to become too hopeless or lethargic about it that the security forces give up trying? Nigerians, please say no to such an Armageddon in Jos!

HAUSA-FULANI, THE WILD BEASTS OF NIGERIA ON A MURDEROUS RAMPAGE ?
Icheoku says, looking at the brains of this innocent child who was sleeping in his home with other family members, when the ravenous Hausa-Fulani nomadic terrorist-killers hacked him to death, sawing open his cranium and exposing its cranial contents, one is forced to ask, when will the last of this wanton madness in northern Nigeria ever be seen? Enough mallams, kajikwo! When you factor in that the picture above is just but one out of five hundred other similar cases of lives cut short within the last 24 hours, then it begins to sink in on all sane people, the magnitude of the anarchy that was let loose upon the hills of Jos, Plateau State Nigeria. And these were human-beings, fellow Nigerians - peoples wives, husbands and children and happening in 21st Nigeria, for crying out loud? Their only offense was being Christians in a region dominated by fundamental Wahhabi Islamic zealots who are bent on Islamising the entire country, starting with the northern region where Jos Plateau State is still holding out? Now to mask the ultra religious under-tone, their big-shots pushed some almajiris and nomadic Fulani herdsmen to lead the assault in order to color it tribal? But as already known to many Nigerians, this is purely a religious upheaval merely wearing a tribal toga of ethnic Hausa-Fulani against Berom Jos? But is there any way out of this conundrum or shall the spilling of the blood of the innocent, deep in their sleep, become a permanent fixture in Nigeria distressed? Is there any meaningful solution or has it defiled every imaginable thing ever thrown at it, such that assuming the two warring ethnic groups, Hausa/Fulani and Beroms, were to be separated; along which lines will that be? How would a Hausa-Fulani settler whose fore-fathers have been in Jos for more than 400 years be separated from the indigenous Berom people, who claim Jos as their ancestral realty? What about a religious war to end all religious wars in Nigeria, especially in Jos Plateau northern Nigeria? Except that such a war will be very difficult to prosecute as their location, encircled in the heartland of the Islamic Sharia north will make that option very suicidal; and their past nefarious and vicious antecedental atrocity against the people of Biafra will make that option hopeless? They will easily be routed by an invading Janjaweed Islamic army from all corners of the north including northern Africa, and the Christian South East people will not come to their aid, being a proven hateful enemy who wanted them exterminated during Biafra. So what solutions are there, - the best of the bad situation? What will be a worst case scenario for the people of the hilly Plateau State, northern Nigeria? Solution one, unmask the faces behind the masks that is sponsoring and/or instigating this unending crisis, and punish them severely with executions if need be. Some very highly placed individuals are most likely behind these recurring mayhem and until they are fished out and punished, such gory sights as is being witnessed in today's Jos will but remain a recurring decimal in Nigeria societal evolution. Boko Haram's CEO was killed as well as a former commissioner who was fingered as being one of their sponsor, hence bringing to a rapid end of that unwholesome crisis. Could the Jos stigma be so dealt with, by openly, if there is a will by the authorities in Nigeria, sacrificing persons who may be as high up as Yakubu Gowon and other protagonists of the madness who are masquerading as leaders in Plateau State?
