WESTERN MEDIA AND CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE!!! CNN, THE MEDIA OUTLETS OF DEMOCRATIC FORCES IN THE USA, THEIR MEDIA WATER DOWN ON BENUE MASSACRE EVIDENT IN THE ROLE OF OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ON BRINGING PMB TO POWER!!! CNN REMAINS AN ENEMY MEDIA OUTLETS TO MAJORITY OF NIGERIANS!!!
I tuned to CNN and few minutes later, they started reporting the Benue massacre.
I jumped to my feet and took these pictures out of excitement that at last a western and an international media is reporting the bloodshed that has the trappings of a genocide going in Nigeria being perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen under the complicit watch of President Muhammad Buhari.
To my utter shock, instead of making a strong statement, CNN reported that the activities of Fulani herdsmen who have murdered over 3, 000 Nigerians were “communal clashes” between them and farmers.
CNN defended President Buhari and said that because he was Fulani, many Nigerians accuse him of not doing much to quell the crisis. They said that when the killings started, he deployed soldiers to the affected area to stop it.
Everyone knows that Buhari didn’t do anything to stop the bloodshed as Governor Otorm told the world.
There was a security report that Fulani herdsmen will attack them, they formally wrote and informed the federal government but nothing was done to prevent it. When the killing began, the president foot-dragged , instead of sending soldiers he sent Police men some of whom were killed by Fulani herdsmen without a dire consequences for their action.
As l watched CNN and listened, l wondered whether they were reporting about Nigeria and her president or some foreign country l didn’t know. I could understand what President Trump meant by Fake News!
By their report, CNN is saying Buhari is doing what he suppose to do and those who demand that he rise up and tackle the menace are not fair to him.
I was speechless. I expected CNN to quote Global Terrorism Index which ranked the Fulani herdsmen as the fourth deadliest terror organization in the world. An attack by ISIS in Allepo cannot be seen as “communal clash”. It must be called what it is, which is terrorist attack.
I expected CNN to report that Fulani herdsmen are all muslims and most communities they had massacred in their ethnic cleansing drive are Christians.
The 2017 Global Terrorism Index, GTI released in January 2018, shows that Nigeria for the third year running remains the third most terrorised nation in the world. This is made possible because terror groups like Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen which are lslamic and from northern Nigeria are having a field day in the country.
However, while Boko Haram is located in Sambisa forest , Fulani herdsmen are scattered all over the country and kill anyone with impunity at will.
CNN did a good hatchet job for Buhari and Fulani herdsmen that an ignorant viewer might become sympathetic to the murderers and feel angry at those who were killed for not appreciating their murderers enough.
One wonders why major international media houses in the West like CNN,BBC, VOA,REUTERS,FOX and many others don’t pay close attention to genocide in African countries.
How can they feign ignorance of the killings by Fulani herdsmen in Benue, Kaduna, Nasarawa,Plateau, Enugu, Abia, Taraba and several other states in which over 3,000 persons had been killed and anarchy reigns supreme in Nigeria?
If these killings had happend in Europe or America, the report would have been different. Western and international media would have reported them regularly for some days.
If these killings had taken place in Europe or America, FACEBOOK would have activated its safety checks to determine whether people in the affected geographical areas were safe. But they won’t do that for Africans.
With 16 Million Nigerians on Facebook, most of whom comment and post about the killings, Facebook was fully aware of the killings but like all other platforms, it chose to ignore it.
The truth which these media houses may try to hide to their shame is the fact that they are racist.
We are blacks. To them, blacks’ lives don’t matter!
