How did the Avian Bird Flu get to Nigeria?


How did the Avian Bird flu get to Nigeria? This is an interesting and important question. Depending on whom you believe and your own biases and affinities you will conclude it was deliberately given to Nigerian Chickens or some strange number of events took place putting the avian bird flu in a place there is no easy way for it to get to.

Let’s look at some of the ways in which those who planted it there, I mean those who are experts on this bird flu are saying it got there. For starters, UN Agriculture officials are saying “they are “sure” this bird flu will pop up elsewhere in Nigeria and beyond.” This bird flu has popped up in the dry Nigerian North. Some as quoted on NPR are saying the bird flu got there by migrating birds based on Nigeria’s position along the path of migrating birds from central and west Asia to West and South Africa. However Wetlands International an environmental group that has been monitoring migrating birds in Africa states emphatically;

“It has been suggested by various officials and media that the disease was transported to Nigeria by migratory waterbirds. This does not seem likely though, given that the timing of this outbreak is three months after their arrival, and the region of Northern Nigeria concerned is 250 – 300 km from the nearest wetland complex used by large numbers of these species.”

Both the location of the outbreak and the timing make it unlikely that the flu was spread by wild birds. Around thirty waterbird species migrate from the infected areas in Asia and the Black Sea region to Nigeria for the winter. Three of these have been identified by Wetlands International as showing a “higher risk” to spread Avian Influenza. They are: the Gargany Anas querquedula, the Northern Pintail Anas acuta and the Northern Shoveler Anas clypeata. A majority of these birds will have arrived in West Africa between September and November. If these birds carried the disease, it would seem reasonable to expect outbreaks earlier in the winter, soon after their arrival. The area where the outbreak occurred is dry with few wetlands, and is not attractive to congregations of waterbirds. The nearest sizeable wetland complex with large congregations of these species in some years, is Hadejia-Nguru, about 250-300 km north-east of the original outbreak area.”


The birds that carry this flu get weak and die in days thus eliminating the possibility of them having the ability to travel 300km to the area where this flu has popped up, that has no wetlands for the migrating birds to congregate which makes it highly unlikely this flu was passed to chickens by these wild birds.

In spite of this information, Joseph Dominick, the head of the UN Animal health for food and Agriculture organization does not believe the flu could have gotten to Nigeria any other way. The reason he believes this is most interesting. Joseph Dominick said in the interview with NPR he does not believe the flu could have gotten to Nigeria no other way because “there is no commercial trade between the Middle East or Asia and Western Africa” which translates to there is no trading of goods that could pass this flu to Nigeria between Nigeria and places already affected by this flu. So Joseph is saying this flu did not get to Nigeria via goods being traded and Wetlands International is saying Migrating birds did not bring it to Nigeria.

There is two other possible ways it could have gotten there according to reports. It could have gotten there via illegal poultry trading, which is not explained at all but throw the word illegal in there and it does not matter what illegal poultry trading is, all that matters is it is illegal and illegal mean bad and bad things happen to those who engage in illegal business. The final way it could have gotten there is by migrating birds, giving it to poultry in the wetlands they migrate to and then that poultry is shipped to the dry area where this flu has popped up, the only problem with that is no flu has been found in the wetland areas.

There you have it folks, the making of mass genocide in Africa, there is no cure for this influenza, once it infects a human; he or she will surely die.

Knowing what little I know so far, I conclude to the surprise of no one reading this; The bird flu was planted and this is an act of sabotage and soon to be genocide by whom I don’t know, but the UN sure as hell have a lot of excuses for why it is where it is already without having done any extensive research.

I don't put anything past anybody, but in order for there to be a conspiracy, there must first be motivation. What would be the motivation for spreading bird flu in Africa? Some sort of Tuskeegee style "testing"??

(Hey, when I read your posts, I don't see the comment button all the time. I have to "refresh" like 4 times before I can post. Could be my computer, but I doubt it)

Peace to You!!

Good question Justin, if there is a conspiracy it must entail making money, the African in remote areas of Africa pose no threat to white supremacy beyond having the ability to biologically dispose of whiteness. Thus who stands to gain with a flu pandemic in Africa; “the pharmaceutical and drug companies” that can test their new drugs without all the regulations modernized nations may have in place. This is common practice in Africa especially with HIV/AIDS research. Right now the pharmaceutical companies are in a race to find a cure for this influenza as fear spread about its possible impact around the world. To get new drugs to the market place require testing, time and governmental support. When governmental infrastructure is weak and economically incapable of providing for its citizens, opportunities arise for these pharmaceutical companies to come in and offer there free unapproved and untested drugs to human beings, under the guise of helping them out.

Even so, it does not take much for there to be a conspiracy and it does not take a more than one person to spread this disease.


I don't have the problem your having with the page loading in IE or Firefox.

Man…I was just thinking the same thing this morning. This does not make sense given the typical migratory pattern of fowls. There should be a distinct path of migration with incidence of bird flu all along that path. The first place in Africa it should have hit in the migratory patterns of fowl from Asia should have been Eastern Africa and Not West Africa. If not the migratory pattern of birds, then only humans could have transported diseased birds to Nigeria from Asia or other areas known to be infected.

You have to understand human nature. I know some times when I see a real fine women coming up on my left side, when I am with my women, I first look to the right….then look to the left thinking that I am throwing off the perception that my ultimate look left was not to target that fine women. Of course, my wife never falls for that trick….but I keep trying. In the same way, certain things targeted for Africa could first appear in other places to give the impression that they were not targeted for Africa.

I don’t think that it is any secret that the West has long been trying to control the growth of the African population. That’s the motive. Certainly was and disease are the tried and true means that populations are decimated and there is numerous opportunities and ways to get this done. I recently watched the movie “Lord of War”, were they talked about how the USA and the West are the biggest arms dealers in the world and how these arms dealers (governments and individuals) from the West supply the armaments for war and conflict in Africa. The UN population control efforts in Africa are well documented over the last 50 years. Hence, all the ingredients of Motive Means and Opportunity exist to make the West suspect in my humble opinion.
