TO ALL THE HATE MONGERING NEANDERTHALS IN LAGOS STATE
By Akin Ojumu
Hate is a deadly thing, it should not be trifled with. If let in, it spreads fast and infects quickly like a virulent virus. When the seed of hate is planted, it grows and metastasizes like an incurable terminal cancer that consumes and destroys the human soul. Hate, once let loose, cannot be contained, it will annihilate everything in its path.
For some folks, to feel – that raw human emotion – is an impossible undertaking. The easiest way such people can and do feel is through hate. On the inside of these people is a chasm of emptiness, and hate is all they have to fill this hole in their soul. The champions of hate suffer from a fulminant inner insecurity – a deep seated psychological malady – that eats away at their humanity. It this faulty psyche that feeds and propels the hate expressed on the outside. Since they have nothing of value to offer the world around them, they pollute the air with the toxic fumes of their darkened soul.
Hate mongers are the degenerates of the earth. They are human beings who have failed to evolve beyond the basest emotional instincts that characterize the beasts of the animal kingdom. Those who peddles hate are at the very bottom of the totem pole of the human community. Such folks are a blight on the collective consciousness of an entire nation. These varmints of human society are only fit to be locked up in cages and kept securely away at the zoos.
In Lagos State, some of these Neanderthals have taken to the street in display of their basal instinct. These evolutionary backward cave men, prodded by unscrupulous politicians and soulless charlatans, are stirring up hate against a segment of the population of the State. Jobless hoodlums and social miscreants, like rabid dogs, have been let loose on law-abiding citizens of Lagos State who are busy engaged in commerce and making meaningful contributions to the development of the State. In a serious violation of fundamental human rights, the Ibo community of Lagos State has been singled out and subjected to violent attacks on the account of exercising their freedom of choice at the ballot box.
Let it be known to all you rascally vandals, those who fan the embers of hate shall be consumed in its flame. And to those standing by watching, saying and doing nothing, you are complicit in this evil act. When the dam breaks and the flood of hate is unleashed, no one shall be spared, and no one shall escape the destructive deluge that will follow.
