I repeat who fried the brains of Southern Nigerians?
Why are the "senators" so called, and "reps" so called not being held to account? Are they representing just their bank accounts?

What is the need of attacking the soldiers. The Bonta people have just got what they deserve. Since last year they have been consistently attacking my people - Igede. They shall be no peace for the wicked. Certainly this war will not end. For every wicked act done to the Igede by the tivs, the day of reckoning will surely come. I promise

Typical afonja response...find a way to blame the victims.

Military Launches Air Strikes On Benue To Kill Unknown Gunmen, Residents Panic

Fighter aircraft of the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Air Force have begun air strikes on Bonta community in Shangev Tiev, Konshisha Local Government Area of Benue State, to destroy the camps of unknown gunmen, believed to be militants from the South-East.

SaharaReporters learnt that the military jets after leaving Essien Udim Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State on Tuesday where they had been engaging operatives of the Eastern Security Network, were redirected to Benue State to continue air interdictions.

SaharaReporters gathered from eyewitnesses that the aircraft flew at low level as they released gunfire, forcing residents to run in different directions as the deafening bombardments continued on Tuesday.

“The aircraft flew as low as 5 to 10 metres above the roof level with a wicked soldier who was shooting randomly and emptying a lot of magazines in motion,” a witness stated.

“It all started this morning, when Nigerian military attacked the people of Bonta in Shangev Tiev, Konshisha LGA using aircraft. This unexpected attack made everyone run out of the villages and look for a secure place to lay low,” another resident said.

“There are actually reports of deaths from the bullets, the shock from the unexpected attack and the loud sound and vibration from the aircraft. There have truly been communal clashes between the people of Shangev Tiev and the Igede community in Okpute.

“Some military men were caught in the clash when they were attacked by some Shangev Tiev youths on their way to their place of assignment. Now, the military have come to avenge the attack on their members,” another source revealed.

The Nigerian military confirmed the aerial strikes in Benue, saying they were from troops of Operation Whirl Stroke who came to engage attackers who had ambushed some soldiers days earlier.

“Some soldiers deployed to maintain peace between two warring communities of Konshisha and Oju LGAs respectively were ambushed. The soldiers were said to be on routine patrol in parts of Konshisha and Oju LGAs at about 5pm when the armed attackers seized them and went away with about eight soldiers after they opened fire on the troops.

“The military then went to reinforce and are back to the community,” a military source stated.

Only on Tuesday, the military aircraft had also caused an uproar in Essien Udim, Akwa Ibom, when the gunmen were targeted in aerial strikes for earlier killing a Chief Superintendent of Police, Benedict Okoh Ajide and other police officers.

The gunmen also killed a yet-to-be-ascertained number of military officers while many others were injured.

The policemen and soldiers were said to be in the community for peacekeeping efforts.

Nigeria is a complete joke. An unimaginable thing in any good country is happing as Nigerian armed forces conduct military operations including sorties on Nigeria soil. This is act of treason on Nigeria. Should Nigerians seek help from Ghana, Benin, Togo or Cameroon to save them from Nigeria?

Use of bombs, bullets and soldiers to keep a country is outdated.


Arewa soldiers restructured Nigeria, and in the process, consigned overwhelming political power to Fulani. Arewa supervised a constitution without any plebiscite, and imposed the constitution upon all in Nigeria.
They exaggerated the unitary government system in a poly ethnic country. That has proved disastrous in Nigeria.

But because it favors Fulani to own the oil wells in the south, Fulani still stick to unitary government system, use bombs and bullets to enforce it.


Worse, Fulani imposed unconstitutional Islamic

Boko Haram quickly emerged after that, and says that it’s fighting for a country to be governed with Islamic Sharia criminal justice system.

How long more shall bombs and bullets keep one Nigeria, instead of restructuring Nigeria politically or splitting the country into more manageable countries?
Let me ask them for how long will this aproach last?

They are the most ShophistiWretched group in the world.

But crude oil in the Niger Delta would not allow the sophisticated group to understand that one Nigeria is a huge stumbling block to human and economic development in Yoruba land.

You won't see Afonjas here. They are always happy when the army strikes SE, SS and Middle belt. Their brain only works one-dimensional "as long as it's happening to others, we don't give a damn." But if it's them like Lekki, they will be disturbing everybody " One Southerner, lets work together." You won't see them saying " One South now or during the airstrikes in Akwa Ibom or Imo." Like the one above me. Afonjas, stop this your evil ways, I say stop it!

The army is clearly taking sides, fighting ESN and other groups fighting Fulani herdsmen and bandits from their land. There is something wrong with the brain of Nigerians especially afonjas!


what did you want Yoruba to do exactly? match to the air force base? throw bomb back at them from online because I don't understand majority of you people stupidity


many Yoruba like me have always rule out the injustice of the securities forces of this country and biasness in prosecuting criminals


so what else will a Yoruba like me would have done different? you people need help with the mention of afonja and Yoruba gibberish coming from your watery brain

Dont mind them, they dont know that the Osus are devilish. The Osus hailed Wakili and the displacement of Yoruba people in Yewa for months until Rashidi started mining their fl*t heads and taking their women for orgy in the erosion ravaged enclave of the Ip*gs. Today, an Osu like you is crying when python is yet to dance for the terrorist ESN. You never see anything. Meanwhile, mind your BP on Yoruba matters because I dont the connection between the topic of discussion and the thrash you wrote

Nonsense who oil help I've personally not benefited anything from the useless oil it's only our politicians
Last year alone my dad made N10million from rice farming. We used less than N2million for start up. Before oil money from agriculture in benue was used to feed your poor fathers from your erosion ravaged region, now you have mouth to challenge

their modus of operation is different. The ESN are targeting nigeria military and police, you expect the military not to retaliate back. They should just sleep back and watch the ESN continue killing them right?

Fulani jihadist,
Why are you ashamed of answering your papa name?

If the military takes a decisive stance, the heads cut off, the foot soldiers will scatter...ground troops, and helicopter gunships can easily do the clean up.

I am ashamed of you Igbos and Yorubas (fellow southerners) insulting each other over every comment. I am an Igbo man but I don't see the Yoruba as my enemy. The greatest enemy and threat to Igbos, and Southerners in general, are the Hausa-Fulani, and not the Yoruba. Enough of these bitter recriminations. And I'm appealing directly to my fellow Igbo people on this forum. Yorubas ain't our problems. If you feel you can't trust the Yorubaman, that's okay. But do not attack him. The same appeal goes also to Yorubas. The Igbo people are not your problems. Let's unite, please, and confront our common enemy.

Naija media ehn. almost 36 hours ago, thugs in this Benue attacked almost 11 soldiers, overpowered them, slaughtered and burnt them to ashes, it's not reported by any media house!
I don't support army at all but the way people are having guts to attack military these days is becoming unbecoming. If you're curious, you can verify what I just said.
