ROBINSON IRMA

The Kanem-Bornu Empire was an empire that existed in modern Chad and Nigeria.

It was known to the Arabian geographers as the Kanem Empire from the 9th century AD onward and lasted as the independent kingdom of Bornu until 1900.

At its height it encompassed an area covering not only much of Chad, but also parts of modern southern Libya, eastern Niger, northeastern Nigeria and northern Cameroon.

Only a crusade to get Oil ---- sweetIrma even has blagged this

a little OFF SUBJECT, but for jeniFad, jeniMy BIA writing Inspiration OK-----

Yes, the European Colonialist brought a level of Deception and Brutality that somehow--through BIGGER guns, weapons and Barbarity----DIVIDED the People.

Then of course the European Powers of Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium MADE separate Nations of divided Native People

--- So Africa in 19th Century did NOT get Democray BUT they got new countries Like---Nigeria,Ghana, Chad, Sudan, Cameroon, Benin, Senegal, Congo, Cote de Ivorie, Guinea, Niger, etc........

@Rob,

Interesting stuff and sadly these people are still feeling the effects of the brutality and divisiveness perpetrated upon them by the Conquistadors.

NEWS "flash" about Nigeria and President Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan

*****************************************************************************
U.S. Can't Verify Nigeria's Claims That It Found the Missing Schoolgirls

"We don't have independent information from the United States to support these reports you referenced...We, as a matter of policy and for the girls' safety and wellbeing, would not discuss publicly this sort of information regardless."

The comments come in response to Monday remarks by Nigerian Air Marshal Alex Badeh, who said that "the good news for the parents of the girls is that we know where they are, but we cannot tell you." He added that the government had ruled out a forceful military response to rescue the girls, along with the possibility of negotiations with their Boko Haram-affiliated captors.

Let me be Sincere:----- I robertPowell, have KNOWN and LOVED Nigerians since 1971

.......Nigerians ACTUALLY gave me my first STRONG sense of BEAUTIFUL People
.......in Social Settings and Business

BUT --- like the USA State Department Statement today, me at times and from other Nigerians..........

Here is what some Nigerians have to say about other Nigerians:

Date: Sun, 18 May 2003 18:48:21 -0700

Listen up,

Why dont you people see the simple truth that your own people ( the supposed victims) are also out to rip off Nigerians? have you not hear or seen cases where Nigerians have transferred funds out of Nigeria only to killed by the people he transferred the funds to?, it has happened in USA and Saudi Arabia and very many other countries where the case has been covered up and never came to light.

Why have you stoped at only telling the whole world that Nigerians are scammers instead of also asking people to be sincere and avoid trying to reap where they have not sown which have always put them into this trouble.

Well, we Nigerians have seen that our leaders will not stop sending our funds out to Your people to develop you own country so we will not also stop doing what we are doing to get some our own money back here, you can go on and even go to peoples houses to brief them about this scam of a thing but people will still fall victims to this ploy till the end of time.

Thank you and GOD is still in charge.

NIGERIAN.

ps. Did the USA

--- Verify Nigeria's Claims That 'There are Missing Schoolgirls in Nigeria' taken from their Overnight classrooms?

and today another GOODLUCK statement.............

Nigeria's president orders full scale offensive on Boko Haram

"I am determined to protect our democracy, our national unity and our political stability, by waging a total war against terrorism," Jonathan said in a televised speech.
It was not immediately clear what such an offensive might entail, given that the northeast of the country has been under a state of emergency and a full scale military operation for a year. Nigerian forces are also hugely overstretched.

"What we are witnessing in Nigeria today is a manifestation of the same warped and ferocious world view that brought down the Twin Towers in New York (and) killed innocent persons in Boston," Jonathan said, referring, respectively, to the September 11, 2001 attacks and the April 2013 marathon bombing.

is this Nigerian, *****ian asking USA African Americans to go to die in Africa........?
