This land is anointed by God Almighty to be home to minority ethnic nationalities of Central Nigeria. To predators, we warn that it is slimy and has proved the Waterloo of many reckless adventurers and their armour-bearers in the past. It is even similar today.
How to conquer it? Simple! First, God has said that He has a covenant with Middle-Belt, and to break the covenant, His covenant with the day and with the night should first be broken so there won’t be day or night in their season (Jeremiah 33:20-21).
But even then, because the Lord is with the people (Jeremiah 21:11), “therefore, my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper; their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.” All self-appointed conquerors to take not, please.
