Taliban succeeded in kicking out the United States and other allied forces from Afghanistan. Many heaved a sigh of relief, believing that terrorism and the over three decades of carnage were over. The world was wrong. On Wednesday this week, a group struck a Kabul Mosque with bombs. Indeed, the Taliban cannot bomb itself. So, some other groups or emerging factions might have been responsible. That could be the beginning of another round of insurgency in Afghanistan, which means, the Taliban should be ready to fight against its people.
History is replete with examples of where there have been imposed political ideologies, religious and tribal intolerance, and religious uprisings and the resultant outcomes. When the ashes of war settle, it is usual to see factions emerge, and the next fight will be the battle for supremacy by various warlords and factions. As the in-fighting rages, most of the masses suffer. These tragic ends tended to have crept into Nigeria. With the level of poverty and illiteracy, we might be heading for a dead end if the situation is not urgently abated.
So, at what point will the Federal Government begin to liberate the forests of Nigeria before the states start to fight for individual freedom from the more extensive umbrella called Nigeria? At what point will the bandits and terrorists in Nigeria say enough is enough and make life less pleasant for the people?
Those saying Nigeria is more secure now than in 2014, I pray for them not to be victims of the terror cells that would help reset their thought processes.
For me, my loved ones, and friends, we are under the canopy of God.
Grace and peace
