The Igbo version of the British Broadcasting Cooperation (BBC Igbo) is apparently no doubt, another tool of division brought upon the people of the old Eastern region; its activities from inception has not proven otherwise.
Let me quickly recall the “Greek gift (a Trojan horse)” in the ancient times. Then, the city of Troy was under siege from the Greeks. The Greeks built a large hollow wooden horse and left it secretly as a gift for the Trojans, who took it into the city. However, Greek soldiers were hiding inside the horse, and they were able to cause the destruction of the city.
For all intents, I could describe BBC Igbo as a “Greek gift” – this time gifted by Britain to cause disunity in Igboland.
Just few days after Flavour, Chinedu Okoli, released a ten-track album, one of which he acknowledged the death of Biafran children, defenseless men and women during the genocidal war of 1967 through 1970, BBC Igbo has started to unleash its divisive, ‘mephistophelian motives’ on the Superstar.
The track, labelled “UmuIgbo” describes the greatness of Igbo natives, and also an encouragement for the Igbo people to come together as one nation.
The above is certainly the reason BBC Igbo would stop at nothing to haunt down Flavour of Africa; not excluding the fact that he [Flavour] acknowledged the good works of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and also encouraged him to remain steadfast.
Following the enormous supports from over fifty million Biafrans to Flavour, BBC Igbo has come up with claims that Flavour does not “sign” upcoming artists; although, Flavour might have a distinct reason for not doing so.
Why would BBC Igbo want to drag the artiste to the mud? Why must it be after he acknowledged Nnamdi Kanu?
BBC Igbo would never hide its hatred for Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB and Igbo in general. BBC Igbo has failed to speak about the killings of Igbo people in Obigbo Local Government Area of Rivers State, by the orders of Governor Nyesom Wike; including other places in the Eastern region of Nigeria.
However, the media platform engaged itself in gossips surrounding the recent misunderstandings in IPOB. BBC was busy blackmailing Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB, while innocent Igbos were dying in Obigbo. There is no greater way to prove that BBC have generated an unending hatred for Igbo people, courtesy of the British government.
BBC is a winning tool of divide and rule mechanism against the Igbo; if not, BBC would not venture its career into gossip, and propaganda that will deliberately divide the Igbo population.
BBC has tried to bring a few of Igbo people on social media against Flavour; then Uche Mefor against Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB – this is the divide and rule tactics.
Suzy Kassem in one of her books on divided Nations outlined clearly, how foreigners could successfully destroy a people by their own people.
She said, “The most dangerous people in the world are not the tiny minority instigating evil acts, but those who do the acts for them.
“For example, when the British invaded India, many Indians accepted to work for the British to kill off Indians who resisted their occupation. So in other words, many Indians were hired to kill other Indians on behalf of the enemy for a paycheck.
“Today, we have mercenaries in Africa, corporate armies from the western world, and unemployed men throughout the Middle East killing their own people – and people of other nations – for a paycheck.
“To act without a conscience, but for a paycheck, makes anyone a dangerous animal. The devil would be powerless if he couldn’t entice people to do his work.
“So as long as money continues to seduce the hungry, the hopeless, the broken, the greedy, and the needy, there will always be war between brothers.”
Suzy’s illustration is a clear picture of what the British government has achieved, and will achieve in future.
The British government has utilized its various techniques in order to divide the Igbo people, and it is not unclear that they would stop at nothing to have their plans achieved to the fullest.
From the very first day I heard about BBC Igbo, I surmised it was another ‘weapon of division,’ and my guess is as clearly right as the crystals.
If Ndi-Igbo would want to be at peace in the next 10 years, the Igbo population must begin to understand the divisive mercenary of BBC; and their platforms should be boycotted. “A stich in time saves nine”.
