Eggon/Ombatse Ethnic Militia: Enough Of The Gruesome Murders By Suleiman Ibrahim Atanyi
It is rather too pathetic and unfortunate that the EGGON OMBATSE ETHNIC militia and their antics continue to render Nasarawa State ungovernable to the Present Governor, Umar Tanko Al-Makura whom they are hell bent on dethroning in order to pave way for an Eggon Governor by all means come 2015.
Worrisome is the fact that even in this 21st century; an age of civilisation, advancement, modernisation and Education, this deadly group could still be carrying out fetish attacks using their richness in witchcraft and local charms to hurt and maim their fellow humans. At an age where devotion and adherence to religion has taken the lead over every primitive practice, the EGGON People would rather resort to the old JAHILIYYA ways thereby carrying out fetish attacks on innocent individuals using all forms of whit craft and incantations just to kill and maim their fellow humans.
This recent mayhem unleashed on my kinsmen of the ALAGO nationalities, thereby killing scores of lives and rendering many homeless in the Alago towns of Obi, Assakio and Odobu is to say the lest “condemnable, archiac, barbaric and the height of ‘man’s inhumanity to man.’ It is shameful for an Ethnic group who has always boast of being educated, civilised and modernised to resort to this crude primitive ways of the use of witchcraft to masacre fellow human beings just for aggrieved reasons.
The Eggon’s heartlessness has reached an extent where they have to resort to their witchcraft practice in broad day light to set ablaze a whole community, and slaughter people with poisonous infected blades. The earlier this deadly group realise that no single individual or group own the monopoly of violence, the better for Peace to reign.
In our beloved State, the simple reason that you are peace loving and would not want to carry up arms/guns on your fellow men should not be misinterpreted to mean you are afraid of warfare and its consequences. The EGGONS with their antics should note that “he who kills by the sword will surely one day die by the sword” for time shall soon come when their crude antics will one day backfire and spell doom on all of them .
To all the perpetrators and their sponsors “I say is enough of this crudeness, else you also die by the sword” ….NASARAWA state belongs to all of us and not to any particular tribe or religion. Perhaps if the Eggons want to clinch the Governorship seat of Nasarawa State come 2015, it is not by bloodshed but by following the laid down constitutional way through winning at the polls and not through violence. Afterall why in the first place have you been falsely claiming you have the majority numerically? Politics is a game of number and not false assertion or violence!
Long live Nasarawa State!!!…….
