It's a good thing that our military and paramilitary forces stop people like this from operating, it will be better though if they set aside their false pride and learn from them.


It's seems we all don't smell war coming.

And where do the herdsmen have their armoury? Has there been an arrest of even one of these vampires?
We all know that Delta and Edo area has been the hunting ground and slaughter house of these monsters recently. So you disarm them but herdsmen maraud the whole place on a killing spree? Is that the agenda? And that man whose Mom was raped and head cut off will clap for you for a job well done? All the farmers who now stay away from their farms are clapping for you? The agenda is no longer so secret. Question is when do people stop applauding all this double standard geared towards wanton wickedness?
