Nigeria has a history of Islamist sects within its borders. Not all have been violent movements, some existing peacefully in parallel with the state. And not all of Nigeria’s violent sects are Islamist; one such is the Ombatse cult, which clashed with security forces in Nasarawa state in May 2013.
Mheshimiwa, Jakom, Jatelo, Sibuor!
All these names in our national Kiswahili language and your native Dholuo tribe simply mean that you are great! No ordinary man! No mere mortal! Bulls are being slaughtered in your honour! A brew has been made in your honour! Government budgets are being broken to meet your visit. 10,000 Kenyan security men have been deployed to secure you. Roads are to be closed! Airspace is being sealed! A country has come to a standstill quite literally!
