A Nigerian Academic, leading African anti- GMO activist and former research fellow at United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration, NASA, Dr. Philip Njemanze has alleged that Bill Gates, the billionaire American entrepreneur is the brain behind the death of many Nigerian farmers.
According to him, Bill Gates donated 14m million cell phones to Nigerian farmers through the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, FMARD, under Dr Akinwumi Adesina and agric credits for seeds bought from seed growers. Interestingly, Bill Gates is the majority share holder in Monsanto and owns the private army called Blackwater.
His words, “Who is killing the Nigerian farmers and burning the fields of natural crops. The rest of the farmers are driven into IDP camps and later resettled with improved seeds the euphemism for GMO crops.”
In a release by Dr Njemanze, between 2015 and 2018, 37,500 persons were killed or severely injured by Boko Haram and herdsmen. 32,000 were Muslims, 5,500 were Christians. In Zamfara 60% of victims were Hausa and 40% Fulani, according to a US Congressional testimony.
According to Dr Njemanze, ” Both Christians and Muslims killed were natural seed growers in their communities and had Electronic Wallets or Cell phones for agrocredits. Who is killing them? Could it be their competitor Biotechnology companies – Monsanto/Bayer offering Genetically Modified Organisms ( GMO) including crops as alternative? Who gave them the Cell phones to locate them through Global Positioning System ( GPS)?” He asked.
“Yes, it is convenient based on tribal, ethnic and religious bias to call names but most importantly the real Boko Haram is based in Seattle Washington, USA.”
