Angry Nigerian Builds Nuclear Weapon, Threatens To Blow Up National Assembly

Published:12 Jun, 2012

An angry Nigerian, who simply identified himself  as Man of Native God has declared that he is currently building a nuclear weapon in Lagos and has declared his intention to blow up the National Assembly premises in Abuja in protest against the corruption and misgovernance of the occupiers of the assembly. In a statement which he issued on the Punch website early this morning in response to a publication by the newpaper in Hon Farouk Lawan was said to have admitted collecting $500,000 from businessman Femi Otedola to influence the report of the House of Representatives Adhoc Committee on Fuel Subsidy, Man of Native God threatened that the horror of Hiroshima and Nagasaki will be nothing compared to the terror he is set to unleash on the members of Nigeria’s ruling class. The details of his statement are given below:

 

Man of Native God June 12, 2012 at 3:50 am

Nigeria.! Nigeria..!! Nigeria…!!! How many times did I call you?

I don’t need an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (Topol-M or SS-18 Satan)
I don’t need an Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (Agni-5)
I don’t need a cruise missile (Tomahawk or Iskander)
I don’t need a mobile missile launcher.
I don’t need a nuclear powered aircraft carrier (USS Nimitz or Admiral Kuznetsov)
I don’t need a nuclear powered ballistic submarine (HMS Vigilant or USS Pennsylvania)
I don’t need a strategic bomber (B2-Spirit or Tupolev Tu-160 Blackjack)
I don’t need a stealth bomber or a 5th-Gen fighter jet (F-22 Raptor or Sukhoi Su-35)

All I need is ONE working nuclear warhead..! I wouldn’t mind transporting and delivering the package BY HAND to the National Assembly Complex. Blow up that shrine of corruption and put an end to this geographical expression!

How can I be alive, a Man of Native God like myself, and idiots and chickens would be stealing me dry both in broad daylight and pitch darkness? The earlier we finalise this geographic divorce the better for we. The clock is ticking. I am already synthesising and enriching Plutonium-239 here in Lagos. Oh yes! If you like go and invite the IAEA and the UN Security Council. Tell them to search and comb all of LAGOS for “clandestine nuclear weapons activities”. They won’t find me. Once I enrich up to weapons grade level (90%), Hiroshima will be child’s play. Nagasaki will be like a game of Nintendo. This country will hear a very Big Bang!!

I don tell una my mind. People wey get ear, make them hear.

Rubbish.

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOO. Guy must either be really angry or an intellectual clown. the blowing up of that edifice alone won’t signal the end of a reign of terror in #Nigeria, they still have lots of “baby looters” waiting to take their spaces. what we should be more focused on is holding them accountable, they should suffer while they’re yet alive not exit the stage like heroes as the legendary CHARLES LOGAN was allowed to without actually paying for his sins. the man who blows them up will be regarded as a terrorist while the nation will ironically mourn the tragedy. what an impasse really. *sighs*

  • Scot

    Reading the guys intro (trying to lay a foundation of experience with weapons in order to boost the credibility of his claims), I would say he’s bluffing about the Plutonium-239, but deep down he believes its possible if he sets his mind to it. That “believe” in my opinion is what we should fear or cheer (depending on how you swing) 😉

  • flint

  • stryker

    We need to stand up for d right thing. Nigeria is slowly being milked dry,our future bleak while frustration is d bane of d day. We must eradicate corruption and best place to start is with ourselves b4 we go on to others. There’s need to stay calm and work stuff logically. Nothin is gained by violence if not chaos and anarchy.

    i would not say this is a lift from some SciMag! Even if it looks so!If this turns out to be true,OMG! It’s gon be a Rawlings Blast

  • Wise

    Oh! This is funny at first but i do think this what many Nigerians should’ve thought of doing to end the corruption and injustice in this nation. The government of today is only making us live a miserable life and there’s no other way to help us out than to help ourselves because it’s even written in the bible that “Heaven help those who help themselves”. So, why sit down somewhere reading this post and think it’s a joke? It’s only for you gear yourself up to think of a better way to eliminate those thieves stealing our common wealth. You can’t just sit down and watch them impoverish us and say God will help us. *spits out* He’ll not!. I use this medium to commend the Man of Native God, for standing up to fight in the favour of Nigerians. If you get caught or killed along the line, I want you to know you died a brave man ‘cos it’s better to die a warrior than a coward(Nigerians) but if it’s a success, I would want to go for Aso Rock next! I wish you Goodluck!!!.

  • John Flaxtonbury

    Thots are converted to words, words soon to action. I won’t be surprised if this bombin takes place b’cos people are goin crazy in this country’s situation.

  • http://www.noun.edu.ng Adam Muhammad

    The level of insecurity is deteriorating in my country. Blowing up the National Assembly will never solve our problem. There is absolute incapacity of governance by our leaders, with so many instances. Tell him to stop this mission and listen to the solution to the problems of Nigeria. The only way out is; Mass protest from every nook and crany of Nigeria, with high level of endurance. Remember we must need to gather food stuffs, for it may last one year. We must need brave leaders, this time not from Labour Congress. Bear in mind, that you may die, because they will kill in their desperation of power. It has happened in Libya, and now they are enjoying.

    It might sound like joke to some people and it will sound serious to the wise once because when a hardship situation clamatize to a certain degree nobody can interpret what wil happen next. if he hard said it just to happen fun then think about many angree individuals out there do you know there mind? security wise is zero am advising you all to stop passing around national assembly ground, aso rock if you hear dis advice make u use zam well ooooo…. i don tel you my own

    Can’t believe Nigerians. Apart from the fact that I think he’s bluffing, the environmental impact will affect the country and not just those he intended the nuclear warhead for. All those showing support, have you stopped to ask yourselves why the world tries to stop ppl from creating nuclear weapons? Please surf the ‘net and find out what happened after Hiroshima. If we are yet to get Mr president’s asset declaration and nobody is forcing that, why are we complaining about ppl who are involved in corruption issues? Ending the looting begins from our nuclear(haha) family. If we want to get immediate results, let’s occupy again. It helped our nation b4 and might well work again.

  • http://rinsola.wordpress.com Rinsola Abiola

    Man of Native God, i hereby plea on behalf of all those livin g in Abuja; do not use nuclear weapons against them. many innocent people died in Hiroshima, and survivors were left deformed for life due to radioactivity. you’re knowledgeable, so i know that you understand what i’m saying; the effects of a nuclear weapon aren’t just felt in the immediate destruction it would cause, it leaves residue which would cause mutations in human DNA; pregnant women would give birth to deformed children, and it won’t just be suffered by one generation. As long as people remain in that area, their DNA will be affected, and once DNA is changed, it remains so.
    A viable alternative is a guided missile. You could fire that from anywhere in the world and hit your target. During the war (Biaffra), these things were produced here and used successfuly. A hellfire missile is a good option, but it’s rather ‘specific’ and there might be survivors, and you’d have to launch it from an aircraft anyway, and you might be shot down. so, kindly come up with something that can hit them from your base in Lagos without collateral damage, because you really wouldn’t want fellow masses who’re suffering to die with them, or would you?

  • ekene uche

    To say the least,this article ought not to have been published,its too emotional and dramatic. To begin with,what does the guy think a weapon of mass destruction is? A toy? I bet he’s read too many novels or watched a lot of series.
    You intend to drop it on the Natl Assembly? Is everyone there corrupt or the innocent few we have there are collateral damage? Its pple like you that are the problem with this country,not a single thought before acting,you just go in shooting blindly,without a care!
    I don’t doubt you could have the so called plutonium-239,but I wonder how you are protecting urself from the radiation it emits,forget what u see on the movies o! Radiation exposure is the worst thing that can happen to an individual!!!
    Till today,its often said that America regrets what ever happened @ hiroshima and Nagazaki during WW2,and the effect of the bomb still resonates till today(caused by radiation fallout)
    I guess this doesn’t matter dude abi? Ur quest to kill em all has closed ur eyes to all of this,God’s mercy on you
    Like I said,we give credence and audience to things we shouldn’t,but I guess talk is free and cheap!
