    These is no demonic affliction more than the evil spirit of betrayal partnered by consumption of illicit drugs. Judas committed suicide for betraying Christ for ‘he knew what he did’. Christ had prayed for those that crucified him for they ‘knew not what they did’. The man that led the first political betrayal in Nigerian politics rejoiced in his famous ‘carpet crossing’ victory until he reportedly also committed suicide for ‘he also knew what he did’. Today some politicians from his ethnic stock not only cross carpet, they cross mat moving from their political friends sitting room into to the boys-quarter of their political opponent in a shameful manner somewhat similar to a punishment. They are columnists, politicians, ex-this, ex-that, quantum liars, etc.
    Those rebels who shot down the Malaysian airline are no different from Nigeria’s political rebels who shoot down every truth, replace it with falsehood in order to deceive long suffering citizens into believing their selfish version. They want personal promotion from the misery of many. Some of these poisonous columnists are Nigeria’s version of Judas. Even if they achieve their aim of perpetuating mediocrity, they may indeed be on their way to some ‘political suicide’. This man’s postings show us clearly that unemployment is a social vice and idleness creates a devil’s workshop producing instruments of hatred, bigotry, betrayal and deceit no matter the topical diversions.

    So much concoction of conspiracy theories,the world is so much open and micro now that you can access as much information as you want to.FFK should have stuck to his usual traducing of Tinubu and APC and receive an applause from his paymasters in Abuja.The zone you swerved into today is for the enlightened with a broad and widened horizon.Never seen so much BS weaved together lately.

    “It is the same people that were secretly behind 9/11 and that used that horrific event to justify their intention to institute regime change in Afghanistan, to invade and corner the oil fields of Iraq and to threaten the borders of Iran.”
    >>>I couldn’t believe you knew this all along!

    “It is the same people that have consistently undermined the security of the State of Israel in the most subtle and deceitful manner whilst pretending to be a friend and ally of the Jews.”
    >>> Don’t you think you are being economical with the truth and turning a blind eye at the reality on this?
