In every war situation, there must be those taken as prisoners of war who are later used for some negotiation. Some are used as distractions for the enemy. Also, in a strong football competition, the hit man is usually the marked man! Knowingly or unknowingly, Gov Amaechi and his state APC were marked during the presidential election!
He was used as a bait for President Jonathan’s loss in the battle. Amaechi became a distraction to the PDP and like the wise men, they followed this STAR! But the star they followed was his and not theirs. So they missed the destination!
In all, Amaechi’s men were killed and maimed by the agents of the opposition. May their blood sacrifice never be in vain. For APC, they must see him as humanity wrapped in divinity, opportunity in the midst of chaos and the caged prisoner who offered freedom to the outside prisoners.
HE PAID THE PRICE FOR VICTORY!
