Click this link from Osun Defender to reads a statement issued by the Alaafin of Ọyọ, the current king of the biblical tribe of Ephraim (NB: Israel is not the proper pronunciation) , in which he voices his observation of a sad repeat of history, another attempt by dominate the Aku (aka Ọmọ Oduduwa). Though not mentioned, the Igboid (biblical Horites) and Ijaw groups have historically harboured ancient envy and hatred for the ku, and repeatedly cooperated with the core northerners (Biblical Assyrians and people of Pul/Fulani) who have repeatedly sought to dominate/enslave/rule the Aku who have been minding their own business. In the 1960s these jealous people instigated crises in Akuland but Nigeria suffered a retribution in the form of military coups and Igbo defeat during the civil war of 1967-`1970. Since the present administration of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Aku people have been deliberately relegated, including his recent (May 29, 2012) insult to the Aku and the memory of the late Chief MKO Abiola. The signs are ominous once again.
