Funom Theophilus Makama was born on the 28th of December, 1986 in Bajoga, then Bauchi State and presently Gombe State of Northern Nigeria. He hails from Kachia Local government of Kaduna State and he is Ham by Tribe. He attended Joy Nursery and Primary school, Sabon Tasha in Kaduna state, from 1991 to 1997 and continued with his secondary Education in a unity school, Federal Government College, Kwali, Abuja, graduating in 2003. He wrote the Cambridge ‘A’ Levels examinations in Zamani College, Kaduna in 2005 and later gained admission to study Human Medicine, the following year in Bingham University, being part of the pioneer set in Nasarawa State.

In 2007; he went to Ukraine to study Human Medicine in Ternopil State Medical University, Ternopil, Ukraine and by 2013; graduated with a Doctor of Medicine (M.D) qualification. He has since returned to Nigeria and is practicing as a medical Doctor.

Writing

Funom grew up, falling in love with writing. In his early secondary school years, he writes Acrostics for fun without even knowing they are Acrostics. There are times he used Titles of movies to create write-ups and engaged his colleagues and cousins to read. As of April 2004; he wrote down the idea he has been carrying for years into a script and Titled it “Holding a Lady,” and after about 3 months, in July of the same year; the script was completed. He has moved about with the script, updating it as he gained more exposure and maturity. Over the years, it metamorphosed into a well written piece and the final touch came when he eventually realized his poetry potential. After injecting several poems into it, he changed the title to “The Soul Talkers” and Alas! The birth of his first Novel, which has passed through 3 editions, as it’s still evolving through 15 years now.

In 2010, Funom officially started writing and publishing articles online in major article directories. Though, he did not write his articles for pay, he used them to become an affiliate marketer for eBay and Amazon. In Ezinearticles for instance, he used his articles to advertise the links and websites of third parties for a fee. On hubpages, the adsense earnings are shared between the site and the hubbers (as the writers are called), alongside income from affiliate marketing and when these are combined, he gets a reasonable income continuously. He has presently published over 1,500 articles to his name. When he realized his gift in poetry in the same year, he began writing poems and publishing them in various poetry sites online, now publishing about 1000 of them. He writes poems ranging from Acrostics to Limericks, sonnets, free verses, rhymes, Haikus, Senryus and others.

 

Personal

He loves traveling, already visiting 17 European countries, when he was undergoing his undergraduate training in medicine in Ukraine; and also some West African countries after returning to Nigeria as a graduate. He is also interested in Politics and has been an active social media activist since 2010; with very strong political views, most of which oppose the government’s policies and decision making. At a point in time, on his facebook page, he wrote about himself as “a believer of ruthless pragmatism and a hater of political correctness,” and this has been reflected in a good number of political poems he has written. He is direct and very outspoken, proving to be consistent with these features of his, even when addressing issues in Christianity, another area he is strongly affiliated to.

He believes in the break-up of Nigeria as the only way forward for the nation to develop and has always reiterated that the various regions can only effectively be “Olamide and Phyno” if  autonomous or independent, as mutual respect will come to play for interests to be propagated and respected. He also believes in the independence of the Southern Kaduna people to form a new state- Gurara, from the Hausa/Fulani wrongful dominance of the state and has also been in the fore-front to kick against the controversial and alleged ‘Islamization’ of the country, manifesting through a grand scheme of unfolding events. He has always given a strong voice for the agitation of the middle belt and believes, the region should also be independent if Nigeria disseminates in the future. The latest of his agitations are against the forceful placement of emirates kingdoms in four Southern Kaduna local governments which are Christian domains; the dubious change of nomenclature of the traditional titles, El-Rufai is trying to Orchestrate, in order to wipe out the identity of the southern Kaduna tribes; the well planned murder of the King of the Adara chiefdom in 2019 which began a series of religious and tribal conflicts in the region, which he believes is the first step in a grand scheme to forcefully convert the region to a full blown Fulani territory; the importation of foreigners from neighbouring African countries since 2011 into the forest reserves of the middle belt and parts of Southern Nigeria; the systematic ethnic cleansing of Middle belt tribes, of which not even one Fulani herdsmen has been brought to book and the release of boko haram members back to the society in the name of ‘repentance’ after maiming, slaughtering and raping Nigerians; these same terrorists also have extorted and destroyed the properties of Nigerians.

He is very critical about the General Muhammadu Buhari regime and has never shied away from lashing out at Buhari’s decision making or policies. He strongly voices out the insecurity under his “rulership” and strongly lays claim to the terrorism ravaging the country as state-sponsored and fully backed and encouraged by the Northern Muslim elites and Buhari’s government. He is in full support of the Biafran agitation and believes Nigeria which has been reduced to the lion who feeds after the hyenas, over the years may, with time, end up have nothing to feed. In one of his tensed political discourse on social media, a particular comment of his received serious criticism, but unmoved, he keeps his stance and this attracted much applause and support from a good number of southerners:

“A country consisting of people with totally different world views with absolutely no meeting point in mentality and reasoning should dissociate to give room for their individual developments and growths. This has nothing to do with hate on any targeted region but a support for all distinct regions to be autonomous and develop the way they deem fit. Some persons will come out and emotionally blackmail anyone with this line of thought and the question I always ask them is ‘what sort of one Nigeria do you want? The one where everyone is equal, there is no majority-vs-minority menace and where the rule of law, justice, fairness and transparency thrives or the one Nigeria where a tribe and a religion seeks to dominate all others, causing mayhem, division and abject tragedy in the process? Nigeria is currently the latter and if you truly stand on the side of humanity, you will seek the former. There is no hope for the current Nigeria in existence, restructuring isn’t the answer, true federalism will still be abused, the country should simply split.” 

From friends, relatives and most importantly, the patients he has treated, he is said to be kind hearted, so selfless, committed to his work, highly professional and a spiritual person. He is an avid Arsenal supporter since 1996, following Kanu Nwankwo’s transfer from Ajax that same year. This is well reflected on his social media following and also his Novel, “the soul talkers.” He is also a lover of music and has openly stated to be a dedicated Christian. Funom sees himself as a spiritual, not religious person and a strong believer in Christianity and this, also, is well reflected in his second book, “Biblical Love Psychology.” He is married to Esther Makama and both have two sons, named Funom II Jesus Makama, and Zenom Jesse Makama. He lost his first child after 6 weeks of life on account of Pneumonia when he was working as an intern in the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital.

    I literature felt a wave of deep emotions stirring in my spirit after reading this! All it takes for evil to thrive,is good men who keep quiet! U are a good man and you have decided to use your voice. Evil will flee. Keep speaking this truth!

    Hopeless idiot. You will die, Islam will rule the world whether you like it or not. Nonesense

    • Funom Makama on January 20, 2020 at 4:41 pm

      you are no match for judeo-chritian civilization. If we could crush Nazism, then your kind of Islam is nothing!

  4. Abubakar Usman on January 18, 2020 at 8:20 am

    You are a fool. Hater of Islam. All these stupid christian northerners that are betraying the region must be dealt with. Nigeria will never break and no Christian or southerner will rule ever again.

  5. Mahmud Yusuf on January 18, 2020 at 8:22 am

    See this fool! Get out of Nigeria if you are tired of the country, don’t come and be an agent of division. Foolish Christians.

  6. Ahmed Rikishi on January 18, 2020 at 8:25 am

    You can’t be living in Nigeria and allowed to spill this rubbish. You must be arrested. You committed treason and should be dealt with. God has given us Nigeria and whether you like it or not, we have taken over

  7. Kabiru kachalla on January 18, 2020 at 8:30 am

    Big pool Nigeria in one but not twice or three times. Kill evil your nonsense to become. Hausa/Fulani from Allah to Nigeria. White man giving country strong strong to us because they know we must power forever. Today is mad for you, tomorrow must to die. Idiot

  8. Kalifat Ahmed on January 18, 2020 at 8:34 am

    Bastard. You hate us? We hate you too. Buhari master of Nigeria of big every Africa. Angel in powerful is buhari.nothing can u become your father useless prostitute is your mother. Buhari kill enemy of Nigeria buhari kill you.

  9. Lamido Lateef on January 18, 2020 at 8:51 am

    Why was this useless homepage shared on our sacred page? Why are we giving this bastard the attention he seeks? Christians ruled this country for good 14 years but now that power has changed hands, they are bringing up all sort of conspiracy theories? Is El-rufai not trying to change the nomenclature of the chiefdoms for unification, peace and cohesion? Is there any local government that is monogeneous in setting? So why having a traditional ruler of a tribe instead of a king of the entire local government, is this difficult for you to understand? So you are claiming El-rufai killed the chief of Adara kingdom? How daft can u be? Intelligence is truly not measured by the English one speaks. Here u are, talking about ethnic cleansing of the middle belt by bandit, is zamfara not affected?

    All of you enemies of Nigeria and haters of Islam became cry babies because a Muslim is there and that’s all. Middle belt is not even constitutional, what we have is north-central, and you this bastard being from Kaduna is from the northwest. You want to join the Igbo’s to have Biafra? Please you can easily relocate to the east and leave our blessed Kaduna alone. It is stupid ideologies like this that the government is insisting of curbing hate speech. You are heating up the polity and giving weaker like minds like you the guts to rise up and propagate this nonsense but you will never succeed. I’ll call the attention of relevant authorities to see if you should get arrested. You see that power? Its no more leaving the north and no more leaving Islam, you can go and hug transformer and die. Nonsense!

    • Funom Theophilus Makama on January 18, 2020 at 9:29 am

      @ Lamido Lateef, let me start by saying that the pockets of insults in your response have devalued your objectivity. You said we are pained because a muslim is ruling now? Must the alpha and omega of our problems in this country be tied to politics and religion? You talk about 14 years of christian rule, what about the 35 years of Hausa/northern military rule which was the ACTUAL cause and genesis of all our problems in this country (contrary to the narratives u guys always give).

      So El-rufai is trying to bring oneness and cohesion in the various chiefdoms right? Have u in details, studied the step by step approach he executed in trying to effect this gross persecution on Christians? All the emirate kingdoms in northern Kaduna were not affected (neither scrapped nor merged), only the ones in the southern part. He scrapped a lot and merged a few, so clearly, the target is the southern parts where there are Christians. So, according to you, in his bid to bring harmony and coherence, he decided to change the nomenclature of the traditional councils, so the traditional leader of the Atyap tribe for instance who is called, Agwom Atyap in Kagoro should be scrapped to “Sarkin Kagoro” to accommodate all, right? Is this not laughable? Is the nomenclature “sarki” not that of the Hausa tribe? So systematically, Agwom Atyap which is a symbol of identity for the Atyap people has been scrapped and replaced with a Hausa one so that this scheme and wicked manipulation will favour the Hausa tribe as an Atyap man, among all others, will have to carry another person’s identity (The Hausa identity).

      Also,is the northern part of Kaduna homogeneous? Are there no residents of other tribes in rigachukun, Zaria, makarfi? But their emirates and Sarkis were unaltered, does this not contradict his reasoning for the change of nomenclature? So this change should be applicable only to the southern part right? Why didn’t you talk about the forceful placement of emirate kingdoms? Why did you systematically dodge that part? And you all are shouting “ONE NIGERIA!” You spend all your time, mental and physical strength and even state funds to marginalize and persecute others, yet you do not expect them to show their grievances? U beat a child and expect him not to cry right? This way has been your systematic way of invading lands. After the crisis in Jos, a lot of pamphlets were flying around about “how the Fulanis first conquered the land called Jos”. The same thing with the killings in Agatu of Benue state, by the time, it got to the Tiv tribe and got national attention, was it not one of your professors in North West University in Kano who came about with some bullshit theories of how the Fulanis first came to Benue state and the origin of the name “Katsina-Ala” which is a local government in Benue? It has always been your strategy, either you conquer by the sword or a systematic invasion with the change of nomenclature and eventually, changing the history of the host land. What happened some years back when the Gbagyis and Hausas fought in Buari local government of Abuja? You neglected the Etsu of Buari to create a “Sarkin” Buari, was that not what caused the fight? To make matters worse, you guys went ahead to bring someone from Niger state to be the “Sarkin” Buari over the Gbagyi people, in their own land! The evidences are there, just google it. Then after the fight, what happened next? For peace to reign you went ahead to keep the two titles, “Etsu” and the “Sarki” but the Sarki still more ranking than the Etsu. And once this continues and you implant your “Sarkis” in all corners of Abuja, you guys will tomorrow come out to say, Abuja was first settled by you, even with clear evidences in such names as: Kwali, Abaji, Gwagwalada, Buari, Asokoro, Wuse, Maitama, Gwarimpa, Kuje; ALL GBAGYI names. I rest my case about this here!

      So u really want to use what is happening in Zamfara to negate the systematic ethnic cleansing happening in the middle belt, really? What is happening in zamfara is a tussle of greed for mining Gold and that’s all. As a matter of fact, it is another area of evidence where the north, once again shows its sectionalism, toxicity and poison towards “ONE NIGERIA”. The north and its elites claim over 80% of the oil wells in the niger-delta region but has taken ALL the benefits from gold mining in zamfara to itself. Hide yourself in shame Lamido, its you guys that are the evil against “ONE NIGERIA”.

      Finally, when we talk of hate speech, go through the utterances of buhari, el-rufai and their cohorts from 2011 to February 2015 both orally and via social media to see and read hate speeches In their rawest forms. Our problems can never be Islam but Islamic fundamentalists from the north, these extremists who believe they are more Nigerian than the rest of us, fundamentalists who have been indoctrinated to classify a christian as ” Arna” (pegan), toxic religious followers who rate cows above their fellow humans on account of the difference in religion, extremists who do not see life as anything and hence can take it at will, all in the name of defending their religion. And these animals are not necessarily almajiris in raggered clothes, most of them even have PhDs in world class universities around the world. So yes, I and so many others like myself have a problem with these people and if you are one of them which you clearly show here, then I have a problem with you.

      Right now, Nigeria does not even need Nnamdi KANU to break up. Buhari is doing an excellent job dividing us. His unprecedented nepotism, sectionalism, insensitivity to our diversity, gross disrespect to the rule if law, dinning with crooks, romancing of terrorists, bastardization of our systems and his placement of cows over human life are more than enough. The results are already showing:

      AMOTEKUN.

      So, its high time you come out of your delusion of being the owners of Nigeria to the reality that everyone owns his destiny now. Have a nice day, bittered soul!

  10. Jenon Madaki on January 18, 2020 at 9:39 am

    Nice job Funom! Nice one walahi. These miscreants and their dangerous sense of entitlements about Nigeria. This country will not last, all thanks to Buhari.

  11. Garba Gimba Nasiru on January 18, 2020 at 9:43 am

    BASTARD! YOU ARE A FOOL!

    Your father not line buhari talkless of you idiot. Nigeria big pass u. Islam angry u die. Go Christianize Nigeria. You our slaves must forever. You must die

  15. Felix Ademokhai on January 18, 2020 at 9:57 am

    Just see them. Look at how they even prove this wonderful biography right as they exhibit their madness. Stupid people, agents of backwardness and killers of humanity. You are right for saying this “we are people of different mentality and beliefs, so we need to go our separate ways”.

  16. Ngozi Gabriel on January 18, 2020 at 10:04 am

    They accuse others of hate when their own hate is exposed. They claim to love one Nigerian when in actual sense, they are the destroyers of one Nigeria. Violence is meted on a people but these evil doers say nothing, do nothing only to ejejaculate and start ranting “they are inciting violence” when the victims decide to stand up for themselves. Liars, manipulators, power drunk, zero in productivity, ruthless destroyers of progress, ancient with obsolete reasoning, weak in mind and the actual propagators of hate. Listen to the sermons in their mosques up north and you will weep.

    It’ll be disastrous for us all if we spend another 5 years with these poikilothermic creatures. Enough said.

  17. Tunde Oludare on January 18, 2020 at 10:08 am

    I used to be one of those fools who thought, one niferia will work with these animals. Goodluck Jonathan was insightful when he organized the national confab, where everyone should be a fully represented stake holder in the project called Nigeria. We followed our so-called National leader “Tinubu” to put our people, heritage and ancestral identity at risk. I regret ever supporting that old haggered idiot.

    Nigeria should simply split.

  18. Abasiofon Samuel on January 18, 2020 at 10:11 am

    Good one Funom. We should go our separate ways. I’m tired of these people. How did we even get here in the first place?

  19. Danfulani Gambo on January 18, 2020 at 10:13 am

    You bear “Makama” and you deny the north, what a shame, a traitor and a nuisance. We will flush your type out of the north.

  20. Funom Theophilus Makama on January 18, 2020 at 10:19 am

    @ Danfulani Gambo… Of what use is it to me that I bare your name and u yet see me less than a cow, worthless, inferior and most of all, an easy prey to your sword? Is it that you guys are not sound enough to get it or its a deliberate act not to?

    You want to flush my type? We are in southern Kaduna, Plateau, Benue, Kogi, Taraba, Abuja. majority of Adamawa, Gombe and a good part of Bauchi, Borno, Yobe, Kebbi, Niger state and a minority part of Katsina and Kano. So I guess you have a lot of flushing to do.

  21. Sylvia Synthatruck on January 21, 2020 at 8:35 pm

    Jeez! So much hate in hear. Nigeria is really in a deep mess

  22. Rowland Biskutt on January 21, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    Islam is just brining with it chaos, everywhere it goes. I cry for Nigeria.

  23. Ismai'l farinjini on January 21, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    Sylvia and Rowland, I suggest that you guys should mind your businesses. Donald Trump is busy fucking u up and you are here pocknosing on matters that don’t concern you and saying things you know absolutely nothing about.

    Islam is a religion of peace

  24. Braiddin Faraday on January 21, 2020 at 8:43 pm

    Religion of peace my ass. Just look at Australia where I come from, they are just 1.8% of the population but are already causing meyhem and chanting the same shariah law which was part of the reasons their various domains weren’t habitable in the first place. All you give to the world right now is chaos.

    Blood thirsty cult called Islam! Just look at how you’ve marred a beautiful biography your with stupidity.

  25. Levi Mc'Lisbon on January 21, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    Forget all the blood sucking parasites here, this biography is cute and solid

  26. Roselyn Thomas on March 26, 2020 at 2:02 am

    Nice biography from a beautiful and hardworking soul who definitely has something to offer the world but unfortunately in the wrong environment. Leave if you can and come to the UK, you will be well appreciated here. But after the corona please.

  27. Rob Ruiz on March 26, 2020 at 2:03 am

    You are a fulsome boy. I do not thin I can achieve half what you have accomplish. Great page Funom

  28. Donna Walsh on March 26, 2020 at 2:06 am

    Islam and its problems. I pity the country Nigeria. The fundamentalist flooding this page just add to more proof of how they have destroyed that beautiful country with lots of potential. I wish you well Funom. You deserve to flourish and be highly successful and you will be.

  29. Erika Teressa Ragin on March 26, 2020 at 2:08 am

    You are definitely a genius. Your biography is simply wow!

  30. Enwerem Calista Chinonso on March 26, 2020 at 2:10 am

    Dr. Funom, you have changed my perspective about the North. I used to think it is 99% Hausa/Fulani and also 99% Muslim. But you strong, outspoken, direct and fearless words here have given me a rethink to what I have already started learning some years back. You are brave Funom. I wish you well with the middlebelt. My prayers are with you bro. Biafra will certainly come to pass sooner than later, thanks for the support.

  31. Austin Rilley on March 26, 2020 at 2:12 am

    A beautiful biography marred with religious extremists and fundamentalists. My nerve was irked with one of the comments here is so insensitive “Islam must rule Nigeria”. God save that country.

  32. Cho Soe Maung on March 26, 2020 at 2:15 am

    fuck out of that country bro. You deserve better. So much talent hindered by so much mess of an environment. I can only imagine the number of talents wasting away in that terrain because of the retrogression, instability and man-made hindrances.
    You are definitely a great guy Dr. Funom

  33. Yvonne Marcano-Loweri on March 26, 2020 at 2:17 am

    A doctor, writer, poet, entrepreneur, wow! Only Nigerians can do such. I have many of them as friends here in North Dakota and they are doing amazingly well. The tenacity of a Nigerian can empty and entire sea. God work Funom. As much as I am awed, I still am not surprised.

  34. Lashawn Lawson on March 26, 2020 at 2:18 am

    I just purchased one of your books, waiting eagerly to read it. Nice page Funom

  35. Ibn Razy Razak on March 26, 2020 at 2:20 am

    All these idiots talking bad about Islam should go fuck themselves.
    Dr. Funom: FUCK YOU!

  36. Kelley Mazzara on May 29, 2020 at 8:46 am

    I do like the manner in which you have framed this problem and it really does offer me a lot of fodder for consideration. On the other hand, from what I have experienced, I basically wish when the reviews stack on that people today stay on issue and don’t get started upon a soap box regarding the news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this outstanding point and while I do not necessarily agree with it in totality, I respect the viewpoint.
