Saratu and the insecurity of insanity-Bala Ibrahim

State, House, Shooting, Coup
Bala Ibrahim

Although destiny is responsible for all the events that will necessarily happen to every person, had late Professor Ishaya Audu, the first vice-chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University and former physician to the late Premier of Northern Nigeria, Sir Ahmadu Bello, gotten any inkling, even if by suspicion, that he would sire an irresponsibly insane Saratu, methinks he would have prayed to God, for the reconstruction of that part of his destiny.

Since the day before yesterday, when the wild and wacky video of Saratu Ishaya Audu went viral on social media, at the Abuja House London, calling and abusing President Muhammadu Buhari directly, the name of the late academician has been in the news for the bad news.

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t bother devoting my time on a person that is adjudged insane, but the fact that her insanity could cause or constitute a threat to public security, I feel I have a duty to draw the attention of the public, to the dangers of interacting with a certified psychotic.

Like the plenty pictures of the spalpeen Saratu circulating in the social media, almost all of them portraying her as an imitation, or mechanical caricature of a human being, the tales being told about this Saratu, are as shameful as they are sordid.

I was struggling with my pen trying to place Saratu’s attitude in the context of our values or accepted rules of behaviour, when suddenly my phone clicked, to alert me of the arrival of a new message. It’s an article on WhatsApp from Ibrahim Ado-Kurawa, entitled, PMB AND THE FRUSTRATION OF PROFESSOR’S DAUGHTER, thus:

“It is indeed appalling and disheartening, the viral news that it was Professor Ishaya Audu’s daughter who was recorded abusing President Muhammadu Buhari. If she is truly the daughter of the Professor, it is least expected from the daughter of such a great Nigerian and gentleman. He would never have condoned it.

But why did she do it? And those guys in London are persisting in harassing Mr President? The answer is simple. Europe is not Africa. Nothing is sacred in Europe or the West. It was Christian and now neo-pagan. Anything could be challenged.

They are no longer God conscious but man conscious. So in Africa, we have to decide what life we want. Neither extreme will stand interrogation or test of time. Tradition and godliness without care for the needs of the people, and placated with excessive religiosity in Africa will continuously condemn the people to the bottom of the pit of poverty.

And on the other hand, westernization and hedonism will never bring happiness, because it makes the human being an animal without any spirituality. Many are not happy in the West because of their spiritual emptiness despite involvement in industrial charity.

Perhaps that young woman belongs to that class, believing that the only path to development is westernization and rejection of African values. It is not an excuse for her to behave the way she did. But considering her pedigree, President’s men might have frustrated her and therefore she decided to go wild to seek attention.

There are people who have worked and are still working for the President’s success but are persistently frustrated and they have lost their livelihoods because of him, yet none of his men ever care to even look at them. That is why, whenever they go wild, their frustration and anger will shake everyone, just as this woman did.”

Kurawa’s article aptly captured the minds of many, and I hope the President’s men and women would not only read to get the meaning of the message but juxtapose it with the satanical slapstick of Saratu.

As if trying to console me against the sitcom of Saratu, another friend forwarded another cliché on WhatsApp, with the title:
