This interview of Hon. Farouk Adamu Aliyu is a most important document in Nigeria’s developing history. Mr. Aliyu went to the United States to seek the assistance and cooperation of the Obama administration in the arrest of Nigeria’s President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. He defended the reasons why he and many Nigerians, myself included believe the accidental President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan should be swiftly arrested for crimes against humanity, support and leadership of terrorism and gross abuse of office. Mr. Aliyu formally presented the submission to the United States government who have the capacity to arrest Goodluck Jonathan, protected by immunity in Nigeria. He expressed that it will be insincere and reckless of the US and international community to continue to ignore the direct leadership, affiliations and coordination of terror by the Nigerian President on the country’s 167 million people.
It is noted that a top US think-tank, STRATFOR has informed that Goodluck Jonathan is a Patron of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND terrorist organization responsible for multiple events of terror including oil installation bombings and the 2010 Abuja independence day bombing that left over eight Nigerians dead. Another top US intelligence think-tank, the Council of Foreign Relations in a report[PDF] by Robert I. Rotberg, “THE CENTER FOR PREVENTIVE ACTION: Nigeria Elections and Continuing Challenges,” described Nigeria’s president as notably “compromised,” and his wife, Patience Jonathan as “indicted by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,” a notably “cruel” being for “ordering the fiancée of a prominent Ijaw leader locked-up and turning down all pleas to have her released;” and described her as the “greediest Bayelsa person;” referencing International Herald Tribune of September 11, 2006 and the Vanguard (Lagos), March 31, 2006.
Hon Aliyu was a northern Nigerian who sought a court injunction against his fellow northerner, late President Umar Yar’Adua in favor of the assumption of the Presidential role for then disenfranchised deputy President Goodluck Jonathan.
