Gov Godswill Akpabio’s Secret Plot To Shut Down Diaspora Voice Fails

9 Nov

Written by Asuquo Okon
Good people, a month ago, Gov Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom state, called on his puppet State House of Assembly to enact a law on an outright ban on print media that publish news or features that are critical of his government. As I write now the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly (AKHA) is tirelessly working on a legislation that will ensure that no media in his state publish information that is critical of his dictatorial government is given a space.

Though as counter-productive as this act is and inimical to the newly established Freedom of Information Bill of Nigeria, yet the AKHA which seems to be made up of ‘yes’ men and in the wallet of Akpabio could not have a second thought over their ill and conspicuously denigrating action.

Sadly, though, journalists or columnists who write to criticize the governor are either kidnapped or assassinated. Politicians and ordinary citizens, who do their private business and whom the governor feels their action may not help in whitewashing his image, face similar fate. In view of the dire consequences facing such writers, they have either kept silent or left Akwa Ibom State to hide with their family; because leaving their families behind means an ample opportunity for the governor’s brewed cult gang to mow them down in cold blood.

Few hours ago, I found in my inbox a letter of petition by one Ata Ikiddeh sent to Yahoo praying her to terminate the activities of the Diaspora Ibom Forum and Ibibio Nation discussion groups; the only online groups that give the Akwa Ibom people and their friends the alternative and opportunity to make public their views. Ata Ikiddeh as we all know was based in Romford, and Essex, United Kingdom, but ran to Akwa Ibom since last year when the UK police were ferociously looking for him in connection with his Non-Profit organisation, Global-Media-Europe-Int and with link to child trafficking. Since then he has not set foot in the UK.

The petition was written on Tuesday, 26 October 2010, 11:33, about a year ago, and however got support of one Clement Ikpatt who wasrecently appointed a Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Affair by Akpabio’s administration. Ikpatt, a deserted Nigerian Police officer who left the country twenty years ago and took refuge in the US has equally not set foot in his father land, Nigeria since then. And yet is used as one of the chief propagandists and a coordinator for Governor Akpabio’s burgeoning money laundry empire in the United State of America, under the aegis of Akwa Ibom Diaspora Network (AIDN).

We are told AIDN has been under investigation of money laundry and terror-related activities by the US government.

A certain Uduak Ukpeh, based in London and a nurse by profession who operates a drug company, Virgin Investments Nigeria Limited, for governor Akpabio in East London and Nigeria, also signed one of the petitions together with Dr Ezekiel Umo Ette who heads part of drugs conglomerate in Atlanta, Georgia.

The petition, written one year ago, only came to the fore when Ata Ikiddeh wanted to forward it to one of governor Akpabio’s hatchet men to show the Pay Master that they are executing his plans to the letter, and therefore need more logistics to accomplished it, but as fate will have it, he mistakenly forwarded it to Ibom Global Forum discussion group. A Diasdpora group sponsored by Akpabio himself to counter any claims or publication coming from the very discussion groups that Akpabio wants Yahoo to exterminate so that his reign of terror and unmitigated mayhem will continue unabated and indeed unchallenged.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED:Ata Ikiddeh wrote the governor On Thu, 28/10/10,to intimate him of his job well-done! See part of the letter: “ Your Excellency,Yahoo sent me a mail this afternoon informing me they had taken “appropriate action”, but would not disclose what action they have taken. I went through their Terms of Service (TOS), it only sets out violations. I have been monitoring Ibom Forum the whole day. I have sent 3 different complaints-this particular complaint focused on the threat to your son. (KMM118129344V62633L0KM) This is the file name and complaint serial number which will always be used.Clement says yahoo will close Ibom Forum down. Thanks Ata”

This might have been the reason for Ata undisclosed appointment as one of the Pas. When Ata said: “I have been monitoring Ibom Forum thewhole day.” when he is not a member of the forum that means he has a ghost name in it as they have ghost names in the Akwa Ibom State payroll which in spite of the call for investigation, no action has been taken.

Announcing the discovery of the petition, Dr Tom Mbeke-Ekanem, the President Ibom People’s Congress (IPC) said: Ladies and gentlemen, I am sharing with you below the activities of the evil forces that have since taken over our state. We knew long before now the havoc wrought on ourstate by the present administration and its agents that span across the globe. We are all aware of the uncountable deaths and untold hardship Akwa Ibom people have been made to face for no false of theirs but simply because they have yearned for a true and credible democracy…

He continued: Today, the government of Akwa Ibom State and her paid agents in and outside Nigeria plan to carry out the same repressive tactics they have used in Akwa Ibom State for nearly five years now out here in United States. It is good that they have now invited FBI, Homeland Security, the State Department, CIA, and SSS in Nigeria into this deplorable state of affairs in Akwa Ibom.And I strongly hope the activities of this evil administration will be thoroughly investigated by both the FBI and CIA.Thank goodness that United States is a country of law. Freedom of the press is guaranteed in the Constitution…..

Nonetheless, it is hard to believe that with all the crimes against humanity and the glaring human right violation that are being committed by governor Akpabio, many Nigerians seem to be interested in the oil money that flows in to Akwa Ibom State and how they can organised an event then called Akpabio to come and get an award in order to carve a niche of the Akwa Ibom oil money.

They seem not ask question about the people who are being kidnapped or sent to their early graves by the governor’s killer squad who are licensed to kill. They are not interested in the number of children who have been orphaned not by HIV/AIDS but by men paid with the only official dutyto kill perceived adversaries of the governor.

The president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan cannot continue to pretend that he and his government are not aware of the mounting atrocities of Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State against his own people. He cannot continue to turn a blind eye while one of his governors is having a field day losing count of the number of people being sent to their early graves.Mr President, A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE!

Recently the US warned its citizens not to travel to a few states in Nigeria’s Niger Delta and a few states in the east. Akwa Ibom State was the first to mention. If all is well why must the US issue this warning? President Jonathan will not go to heaven to look for an answer to this question. Will he?

Some hours ago, I was jolted out of my revelry which did not spell well for my country in antithesis of the way which I am praying for.When I opened my email, the headline that was very conspicuous read:PLOT AGAINST IBOM FORUM & AKWA IBOM INDIGENES IN DIASPORA.When I finished reading the plot and failed intrigues of Akpabio, I rinsed my mouth and got some drinking water. I remembered I was in Uyo whichmight have prompted me to get a half sleep. Since I always sneaked in and out of Uyo, I prepared for my flight ticked online via Calabarairport instead of Uyo – a usual case of mine. Then I sat in front of my laptop and scribbled a few lines of encouragement to all thefreedom fighters in my state below:

Dear All, Akpabio boys asking Yahoo to shut down the Voice of the masses!No shaking whatsoever. It was a ploy to get plump jobs!May be time has come for Godswill Obot Akpabio, the Kidnapper-in-Chief in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria, with his notorious group of assassins andabductors to be fully disgraced. This is the time to put on your girdle and amour of the Lord to fight the devil; I mean the real DEVIL and get him hook, line and sinker. God is alive. I mean the time to bring out fact to bear. Time to put up petitions in various human rights websites and blogs. It is a deliberate ploy by the anarchists to carry out their 666 plans before the time of rapture comes.It is a way to blind-fold and shut people’s mouth then continue to terrorize, intimidate, coerce and kill innocent people with impunity

Akpabio, the man whose head has gone haywire and mouth blood-tasty, just as it happened to Idi Amin Dada of Uganda, Adolf Hitler, Sanni Abacha, and most recently, Muammar Ghadafi of Libya and presently Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. A despot who once tested blood cannot be normal; he will continue to get more and more ferocious as he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. Godswill Akpabio, has gone beyond this. To say that Akpabio needs a rehabilitation centre or remand home, is making an understatement. Calling Yahoo to sanction all the groups that criticize his killing of innocent people in Akwa Ibom State and beyond through his killer squad in street cloths and uniform men, and mere perceived enemies, is more than meet the eyes. No other time has been so ripe than this. Never fail to brace up for the challenge. It must be fired from all cylinders to bring down the monster. You must do this to ‘send the dragon to where it belongs’. Remember Raskimono?These guys know that all these their tricks are a failure. It will not work at all. Since 2010 yahoo is yet shoot its bullet to these forums that protect human lives from the dragon mouth of Godswill Akpabio. These forums have helped saved a lot of lives; and so shall it continue to do. Can you see? This is the very forum that some of them come with fake and phony names to spread the falsehood of their pay master, arsonist and murderer.I have been saying that they make this to deceive and lure Akpabio into giving them a job; and have succeeded in getting it by all means. So what else? Yahoo is a constituent of people who use their brains to think. And I can assure you, they are looking at this issue, they know that Akpabio is killer. Yahoo should Google the name of Godswill Akpabio, it will see how psychopathic sycophants have done their best in praising him, but it will also see massive abuse of office, violation of human right, and degrading treatments that Akpabio has meted out to many unarmed civilians, including children.It will see hundreds of lives that Akpabio has wasted in a land that there is no civil war or civil unrest; except that Akpabio has turned the once most peaceful state of the Niger Delta to a mind field and death traps.

Since they are calling on US FBI to join the Nigeria SSS for investigation, this should be a welcomed development. This is the time for justice to begin fish out Akpabio and his gang of terrorists. Ever wonder why more than five thousand Akwa Ibom people have fled their state to different states and countries seeking refuge here and there?Those who don’t have the ability flee, remain and get killed.

Keep on the good fight for your people.
