I don't think Our president is getting the right information concerning the insecurities in the land. I see no reason why a sitting president will just stay on a low and watch the country burn down.

It's high time Buhari do something before it leads to anarchy.

cyrilamx:
That is the effect of releasing Dasuki and NK. The judiciary is to blame in all these. They prioritise yeye rule of law to National security. Even the US we copy our democracy from won't even try release such men. But the falanas, Ozekhomes, NGOs and cashtivists horded the FG to do their bidding all for populism. We read how PMB warned against their release esp that of Dasuki that he Dasuki "possess such immense financial power and intelligence to cause problems for the govt. We saw how Boko Haram roared to life after Dasuki's release. Let continue to feign ignorance, the conflagration will consume us all.

May God Almighty bless your wisdom sir! This is the best quote I've ever seen.

Call to a crucial meeting Goodluck, Tinubu, Orthom, kwankwaso, Peter Obi alongside Buhari and osinbajo and you just might turn the nation collectively on various gunmen..

When the right people to the populace speak in unity, it just might split ranks..

The people always need trusted leaders that appeals to various populace in these moments...

Yorubas and other Southerners in the North should better start planning on how to relocate home now because things will definitely escalate in the North sooner.

When it happens, they won’t differentiate between Igbo, Yoruba, Ijaw, Benin, and etc.

Don’t let them use you to count scores.

Actually people are quite aware that it is ipob terrorists that are senselessly attacking northerners in the East.

If you must raise alarm, your warning would be more apt directing it to Easterners in the north.

Can the fulani army defend Igbos in Sabon Gari, Kano from Hisbah and muslim fanatics this way they deployed the most sophisticated weaponry to defend hausa/fulani living in Ama-hausa Owerri? The bias of the Nigerian fulani army is so shameful.

So the Army should have stood aside and watched the innocent northerners slaughtered because they want to prove a point to brainwashed ipob zombies?

The handicap of your reasoning is even more shameful.

Actually people are very enlightened that it is ipob terrorists that are senselessly attacking northerners in the East.

IPOB and Kanu are busy on Self destruct mode

And to think they learnt nothing from the Calamity that befell the Last Biafra

IPOB are even foolish enough to be attacking their own People

Their foolishness is almost over , their own People will soon pounce on them and finish them off themselves

Your wish will be fulfilled but on the heads of those terrorists called Nigerian soldiers.

And the ugm killing Igbos are your angels.

Mark this word you will be put to shame, I know it's your desire to see Igboland turn into your terror savaged region where boko haram are raising their flags, but you will be put to maximum shame.

Do you think the North can differentiate a Yoruba from the Easterner when people retaliate?

At this stage, I won’t blame the Northerners if they do retaliate, at least they showed restraint, but we (Yorubas) just need to plan ahead as Yorubas in the advent of a retaliation.

IPOB terrorists want Nigeria to burn and all they are doing here is trying to make Igbos in the North as sacrificial lamb to hasten Nigeria destruction. They know Igbos will be killed in the North when all this escalate, but they are willing to sacrifice them.

However, Yorubas are not shielded from the effect of the North does retaliate.

They are a new generation that are begging to be reminded.

The only difference between Nnamdi Kanu and his cowardly predecessor 55 years ago, is while Kanu was smart enough to take off early before using remote to control his zombies to burn down the East, Ojukwu waited till after millions were killed and his arse was on fire before he fled to Ivory Coast in lipstick and women's clothes.

The only difference between Lamidi Cownu and his cowardly predecessor 50 years ago, is while Cownu was smart enough to take off early & use remote to mislead millions to a bloody war, Ojukwu waited till after millions were killed and his ass. was on fire before he fled to ivory Coast in lipstick and women's clothes.

so whom did the Fulani herdsmen learn from?

Poor Owerri. My dear Owerri cry

ESN must be totally flushed out of the SE. They are already using fear to keep the mouths of the concerned indigenes shut. This wasn't part of the deal.

They were supposed to only fight killer Fulani herdsmen, not killing innocent igbos and burning down our land. We must reject ESN before they completely burn down everywhere.

Na so! One day they might get successful and massacre the Hausas in large numbers. Oh father lord. The reply will be loud with echoes. Then some of these nairaland urchins will then be affected and have a little taste of what is to come.
