Isn’t it interesting that it is the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, located in one of the most Christian geo-cultural regions of Nigeria, that conferred a transparently fraudulent “professorship” on Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, considered by many Nigerian Christians as the most dangerous “jihadist” in government? 

But it is I—whom hordes of triggered and comically cretinous Talibangelical zealots and unreasoning ethnic chauvinists have called a “jihadist” for calling attention to the stealthy, barely known but consequential and enduring symbolic and economic violence against vast swathes of Yoruba Muslims in their own land—who is almost singlehandedly exposing the fraud—at the expense of my friendship with him, no less.

In other words, a “jihadist” is exposing the daylight intellectual fraud of a fellow “jihadist” while Pentecostal fanatics and Yoruba nationalists on social media—and in the traditional media— who have no capacity for self-critique or basic introspection look away.🤣

Many of them would shut up and defend a fraudulent “jihadist” for a little change in their begrimed pockets. I won’t be shocked if FUTO fraudsters also curse me and call me a “jihadist”—or whatever other juvenile, intellectually lazy ad hominem barbs that Talibangelicals and ethnic nationalists on social media have invoked in their vituperative arsenal—for bringing to light the plight of Yoruba Muslims.

Even FUTO’s ASUU, which is supposed to be above board, which should at least make pretenses to basic decency, is acting in cahoots with the school’s management to perpetrate an unprecedentedly broad day intellectual heist on behalf of a “jihadist.” What fraud has joined together, let no religion put asunder.🤣


  1. Well Commendable speak, the English is amazing, considered by me as the most expensive trust about the professor Pantami Saga.

  2. That's the irony of it all. I fancy your courage for saying it point blank as it is, and always standing by the truth against all odds without dancing to the gallery or to please any bigot. You have indeed answered your name 'Alfarooq'.

  3. It is shamefully sad as it is sadly shameful that ASUU of FUTO can be this petty!!!

  4. I always stand up by the truth that the award of professor to Malam Isa Ali hasn't followed a due process. In fact, it further revealed to the world that Pantami like fame hence, he's too eager to be called a professor. This is a shame to a person like him
