At the moment, there is so much tension in the African continent due to the military coup taking place in some sensitive countries across the continent.
The once-united Africa is gradually becoming a volatile zone where a coup could even happen overnight. The latest successful coup in Niger Republic last week and the attempted coup in Sierra Leone yesterday is a confirmation that there is a crisis in the African continent.
In the coming days, Africa may experience an internal war following the order given to Niger Republic junta by The Economic Community Of West African States (ECOWAS). The organization led by President Tinubu ordered the junta to reinstate a democratic government in the country or force will be exerted to make it happen.
A few days after the order and threat, the Military junta in Burkina Faso, Guinea Bissau and Mali threw their weight behind the coup in Niger, warning ECOWAS not to attempt to overthrow the military in Niger because it will be seen as war and retaliations will follow.
Technically, Africa is heading towards a continental war. Military take-over of democratically elected governments is now in vogue as some countries may experience it in the coming days if care isn’t taken.
Many are of the notion that Russia is behind the military coup in the continent but regardless, it seems Africa will come under a heavy attack with its guns, swords, and knives.
Meanwhile, in January 2023, One of the most vocal prophets in the continent, Primate Elijah Ayodele alerted leaders in the continent that he foresees Africa coming under a heavy attack that will not be explainable. He highlighted that the continent will be scary for everyone and that presidents need to wake up from slumber to avert this crisis he foresees.
These were his words:
“I see Africa coming under a heavy attack, the way it will happen won’t be explainable, Africa will become a very scary continent for everyone. African leaders need to wake up from slumber. There will be insecurity in Africa and countries in the continent need to come together to build a security network. They don’t have to always run to the Western world for security.’’ (https://pmnewsnigeria.com/2023/01/24/i-foresee-africa-coming-under-a-mysterious-attack-primate-ayodele/)
In February, Primate Ayodele again warned that he foresees Africa fighting Africa in the coming months.
‘’African leaders, ECOWAS, AU should wake up, there is danger in Africa now, I see Africa fighting Africa for no reason and they will turn it into a war. Don’t allow Africa to become a war zone’’.
Also, Primate Ayodele warned that the presence of foreign countries in Africa will push the continent into crisis. He mentioned that Africa will become a tense ground where world powers will be testing their strength if care isn’t taken.
‘’The presence of China, Russia, America, the UK, and Israel in Africa goes a long way, the leaders must be careful because there are issues and counter issues that will arise because of their presence. They want to use the African nation as a tense ground. Africa must be careful of health dangers.’’ (https://dailypost.ng/2023/03/26/expect-political-tension-primate-ayodele-to-world-leaders-speaks-on-global-economy/)
With the current situation of things in the continent, will it be right to say Africa is coming under a mysterious attack as foretold by Primate Ayodele?
