It Is Either The Koran Or The Sword – ALIYU GWARZO


I would have began this piece in the same violent manner for which Aliyu Gwarzo did, but the lunacy and insensibility will have to become a force for which i myself will now have to partake in. One thing that most of these “violence” speech makers often forget is the simple fact that Nigeria is quite bigger than any one person or group as the case may be. They choose to think that it’s only one man or group that has the monopoly of violence or incitement, unfortunately, its not. When people are allowed to talk like this without any repercussion, they give others the opportunity to act it and in so doing, set the nation in a state of chaos and political hoolibaly.

Here are the words of Aliyu Gwarzo:

When I say that the Presidency must come to the north next year I am referring to the Hausa-Fulani core north and not any northern christian or muslim minority tribe.

The Christians in the north such as the Berom, the Tiv, the Kataf, the Jaba, the Zuru, the Sayyawa, the Bachama, the Jukun, the Idoma and all the others are nothing and the muslim minorities in the north, including the Kanuri, the Nupe, the Igbira, the Babur, the Shuwa Arabs, the Marghur and all the others know that when we are talking about leadership in the north and in Nigeria, Allah has given it to us, the Hausa-Fulani.

They can grumble, moan and groan as much as they want but each time they go into their bedrooms to meet their wives and each time they get on their prayer mats to begin their prayers, it is we the Fulani that they think of, that they fear, that they bow to and that they pray for.

Some of them are even ready to give us their wives and daughters for one nights sport and pleasure. They owe us everything. This is because we gave them Islam through the great Jihad waged by Sheik Usman Dan Fodio.

We also captured Ilorin, killed their local King and installed our Fulani Emir. We took that ancient town away from the barbarian yoruba and their filthy pagan gods. We liberated all these places and all these people by imposing islam on them by force.

It was either the Koran or the sword and most of them chose the Koran. In return for the good works of our forefathers Allah, through the British, gave us Nigeria to rule and to do with as we please. Since 1960 we have been doing that and we intend to continue.

No Goodluck or anyone else will stop us from taking back our power next year. We will kill, maim, destroy and turn this country into Africa’s biggest war zone and refugee camp if they try it.

Many say we are behind Boko Haram. My answer is what do you expect? We do not have economic power or intellectual power. All we have is political power and they want to take even that from us.

We must fight and we will fight back in order to keep it. They have brought in the infidels from America and the pigs from Israel to help them but they will fail. The war has just begun, the Mujahadeen are more than ready and by Allah we shall win.

If they don’t want an ISIS in Nigeria then they must give us back the Presidency and our political power. Their soldiers are killing our warriors and our people every day but mark this: even if it takes one hundred years we will have our revenge.

Every Fulani man that they kill is a debt that will be repaid even if it takes 100 years. The Fulani have very long memories.”- ALIYU GWARZO

I have read various take from Nigerians as regards this. Some say he wants to be controversial while others think he wants to come back into the limelights of politics. Whatever the case is, whatever angle he’s biting on, this statement is dangerous and it shouldn’t be taken likely by the authorities. If you recall, Gen.(rtd) Muhammadu Buhari also made a similar statement before Jonathan became the President in 2011. Many other Muslim fanatics followed suit after which there were bomb explosions and abduction of Christians everywhere, a situation that today, kept 219 schoolgirls in captivity for the past 175 days. Gwarzo shouldn’t be moving around freely today if Nigeria is with responsible leaders. Everyone know the role Gwarzo played when he served under the late military head of state, Gen Sani Abacha. Till today, he’s still in possession of Nigeria’s $2.45 billion and still linked to many killings in the past alongside Hamza Al-Mustapha. The simple take here is that Gwarzo is dangerous and must be treated as such to avoid the path this country is about toeing.

The readiness of other ethnic groups cannot be overemphasized. The Igbo people (BIAFRA), the Niger Delta (MEND) etc., are various groups who are war ready in case of necessity. To avoid a blood birth in Nigeria which of course will be unpalatable for the Muslims, i implore these war mongers, these violence speech makers, to shield their sword, withdraw their threat and follow a political process to seek for power.

  1. This rejoinder is from someone who wants peace for this nation. By the grace of God, Nigeria will not go into flames. My question to Gwarzo is that, if he and his likes get into power by killing and destroying others, who will remain for them to govern? Gwarzo and his likes should know that life is give and take, and that variety is the spice of life. God in his infinite wisdom did not create the world to appear in just one form, neither did he create man to appear in just one color. He created us in various colors and endowned us with varieties of gifts and abilities so that we can employ them for the benefit of one another. Gwarzo and his likes should chose the path of peace and stop the incitement to violence. There is definitely no gain in this.

  2. What a pity this whole saga is turning to but, i have this to say, “The lion may claim to be the king of the jungle, but when the jungle is on fire, who will remain? Let people regardless of their religion be wise.

  3. Why the unnecessary threat? Who gave Gwarzo that gut of his? Why do people like to boast on vanity? After all the crimes committed by this same man beyond mere allegation, and he still has the mind to come on air to brag. I just pity you Gwarzo, incase you have the privilege of reading this comment. You are but a breath, and the link between you and hell is like a cobweb. If Abacha your former boss died in a strange way, do you know what is awaiting you, and how soon? Be very careful, because some people who have once threatened this nation did not live to witness the proposed date. Their is a God who kills without a sword… Behold he is monitoring your secret plots.

  4. Its a pity that we still have illiterates who makes empty threats. I believe that Gwarzo will not see that day in Jesus’ name.

  5. In all sincerety there are many who think like Gwarzo. They may not express it openly, but are working towads this goal with all commitment. But we have this to say to them “power belongs to God” and not man who dictates. Nigeria is greater than these elements. They will never succeed or advance their wicked plot.
