Nigerian Revolutionaries And The Fear Of Death
Let set the records straight, it is pertinent to start this submission with demystification of the myth of “peaceful revolution”. Revolution, by it’s own nature, is basically effecting a regime change by the masses led by key revolutionaries defying every conventional principles and ethos of morality.


Realising that their oppressors would never willingly relinquish power, these agents of change are left with the only option of employing whatever technique feasible and likely to produce results bearing in mind that their dreams, freedom and even life is strictly put in the line.
Little wonder then that most revolutions are bloody as failure would see the ringleaders being ruthlessly dealt with. Hence, these advocates of rebellion against oppression already have their life and comfort jettisoned for the cause of Justice and equity.


For them, it is a call to which they must answer and if death comes calling, they would gladly soldier on to meet the goddess of Justice as heroes.
If any revolution is to succeed, if those championing for the change of the status quo are seriously after it, emotions have to be thrown to the waste bin and morality brutally sacrificed on the altar of Justice, as captured by Karl Max in his masterpiece “communist manifesto” The greatest impediment to the realization of the communist dreams and ideals is excessive moralising.


Evidently shying away from the consequences of been dubbed a rebel, our freedom fighters down here decided to subtly evolve a new type of revolution: peaceful revolution.
As expected, all of these demonstrations had always failed abysmally to produce results, as the presidency, mindful of the cowardly nature of those demonstrating, deploys heavy security personnel to disperse them.
In few hours, these “advocates of change” who had earlier sworn by Ogun to give their all to the cause is seen scampering for safety.
Subsequently, the revolution base shifts to the internet and mainstream media houses, with the their key leaders who escaped arrest blasting the government and accusing them of brutality and other democratic crimes.
The security agents, having delivered the mission of their pay Masters, would respond with a Stern threat to deploy even more ruthless measures in dealing with anybody “arousing public sentiment against constituted authority”.
With this, the revolution which once rent the public space and shook the cyberspace is buried forever and the political narrative returns to square one. At worse, the arrowheads would be secretly “settled” without the knowledge of their fans.
