So just early this morning, a message come into my inbox and the sender requested i relay it on my blog. At the first glance I wanted to neglect it, but something stirred my curiosity so I read through the message to the end and found out that it quite informative as it will help solve the on going incessant killings by armed herdsmen.
The message reads below:
Dear friends, there’s a very important piece of history I’ll like to share with you which concerns you.
On December 1, 1955, a middle-aged “negro woman” in America, Mrs. Rosa Parks, refused to stand up for a young white man who just entered the segregated bus she was riding in. If she did, she would have had to stand all through the journey.
At that time, the bus was segregated in most parts of America: white people sit in front rows and black people sit from the back. Blacks would normally pay fare to the driver in the front, then step out of the bus and go through the back door to find a place in an already tight area at the back. If the allocated spaces for blacks are filled, all other blacks joining the bus would have to stand even when the more than half of the bus spaces reserved for whites are empty! Such was the injustice and humiliation that black Americans faced then.
For refusing to stand up for the young white man, Mrs Rosa Parks was immediately arrested, scheduled for arraignment on Monday December 5. Then, the Rev. Martin Luther King and his NAACP comrades stepped in. They called out the people. They spoke about the sad realities of their existence, the terror of an unjust system and barbaric treatments in the hands of fellow Americans.
In addition to speaking out, these Black Americans decided to take action to protest that injustice by boycotting the segregated buses. The boycott began December 6, 1955.
Dear friends, here is the crux of the matter: Black Americans took action! For 1 year and 16 days, they trekked to and from work or boarded improvised pooled taxis, everyday, until the US supreme courts declared segregation unconstitutional!
During the struggle, someone offered one tired black woman a lift in his car, but she declined, saying, “l ain’t trekking for myself, but for my children and grandchildren!”
So, dear friends, whenever we don’t take action and we feel unobligated, unconcerned,* we should simply remember the black Americans and those women. Without them, the freedom that US enjoys today wouldn’t have happened, or happened too late.Obama may not have become the President of US.
So, the questions before all of us now are: Are we slaves to the Fulani people? Are you ready to trek for yourself and your generation yet unborn as the black Americans did? Are we willing to do our own little bit for the cause of good governance and security of our people? Are we ready to act? If today, it is Benue, Kaduna, Taraba, Enugu, etc, which state or community is next? We have complained and grumbled enough. Now is the time to take action.
Dear friends, there’s a general consensus that with effect from FEBRUARY 2018, there should be A TOTAL BOYCOTT OF FULANI COW MEAT, including suya, kanda (skin), etc. We should discipline our appetite and make this sacrifice now to put an end to the killing of farmers because of cows. 🐂🐂🐂
We can get protein from chicken, goat meat, fish, pork, etc. How can we continue to patronise their business and then they turn around to kill our people and destroy our communities? Enough is enough.

Chinese father sells his baby daughter to pay off gambling debts
A Chinese father has been arrested for selling his 1-year-old daughter for £6,800 to pay off his gambling debts.
Jiang, sold the one-year-old to a couple after owing more than 60,000 Yuan (£6,798), according to reports in China.
Jiang told his wife that he was taking their daughter to stay with his mother. He flew the child more than 1,150 miles away from their home in Guiyang, Guizhou province, last November.
Wang, his wife grew concerned after his failure to return three months later but repeatedly postponed their return.
In February, 2019, she checked her husband’s phone and found shocking conversations between her husband and her daughter’s buyers.
Wang went to her husband’s mother in Zunyi city, about 87 miles away, who informed her that her son and granddaughter left her weeks ago.
She immediately contacted police and they tracked Jiang down to a hotel in Guiyang last month.
When he was caught, Jiang admitted to owing a huge gambling debt and decided to take the drastic measure after seeing online adverts for child adoption.
How Jiang Planned on Selling his daughter
Jiang lied to the buyers – a couple in Zhoushan, Zhejiang province – that he was a single father who could no longer afford to care for the girl. He went further to claim that his own parents were dead so he had nowhere else to turn.
Fortunately, the child was located by the police last Friday and reunited with her mum.
Jiang has been arrested and charged with suspicion of human trafficking, according to the police.
