  1. The sudden outbreak of the outlawed fulani herdsmen attacks in the country should be thoroughly checked by the federal government. The discord,strife,hate,contention and war mongering attitude they possessed have now being emboldened by continuous muteness from mr president, Muhammadu Buhari. Having witnessed the deliberate quietness from mr president over unstoppable,inhumane killings,rape,crime against humanity committed by this ethnic group,many nigerians are left wondering if our leader is not paying full support and backing to fulani herdsmen in the country. The current insurgency from fulani herdsmen in the wake of Muhammadu Buhari as a president should be condemn in the strongest term by all peace loving nigerians. The fulani herdsmen have engaged in what I refer to as Earthling cleansing of Agatu in recent months in the eyes of every nigerians with little or no intervention from the current government. There heart have been hardened and are now transporting terrorism to other states threatening peace and unity that bind us as one nation. Since they are undeterred,they have now taking a step forward in courageously picking up arms and start engaging in deadly armed robbery attacks in a number of states in the country recently.

    The level of injustice and unfairness related to the continuous and senseless attacks by this ethnic group can no longer be accepted by the country people. Justice and equality to all nigerians regardless of tribe,tongue,culture,religion should be the be hall mark of a good leadership. The unity that binds the country must not be faltered,shattered,divided by any ethnic group in the country. The terrorism,wanton killings,mayhem caused by this tribe must be address by the president in order to avert an open conflict with other peace loving tribes in the country.

  2. shebi na Una vote Buhari in, now is Tribe’s men are taking advantage and the nothing is said. the fact remains that they dont kill their tribes in their states.

    we know Fulani’s has herds men, from herds men to Terrorist, armed robbers, killers who the Goverment allow them to use an assault riffle that no police or our military use.

    Buhari is biased and confused.

  3. Everybody want to be feared,they want to mark their name with blood. What’s really going on ?

    Wher on God’s beautiful earth did they get the guns? We need God’s intervention in our country Nigeria.

  4. This is becoming tooo much. They said NDA are paid to frustrate Buhari government, now these herdsmen from fulani/north, who’s paying them to be killing people, especially the igbos

  5. Where we’re their cows when they embarked on the robbery? If they are truly herdsmen, their cattle will be nearby and the location of the herd can lead to possible identification of the culprits so they are arrested and prosecuted.

  6. Majority of nowadays Fulani Herdsmen are former Boko Haram terrorists with many powerful weapons like AK-47 and pistols to cause serious damage and casualties. When I was a little boy, the true Fulani Herdsmen never walk their cattles around our local communities terriorising the innocent villagers with AK47 but they walk with sticks in their hands to direct their cows. If the state and federal government continue to ignore this powerful threat, it will lead to another seroius war or ethnic conflicts that will lead to more lost of precious human lives. If the government fail to act, then Nigerians living in the south will be left with no other option than to obtain similar or deadlier weapons to fight back and protect their farms, properties, and people. From now on, it will be wise for local, state, and federal government to formulate laws forbidden Fulani Herdsmen from walking around Southern communities and villages with any weapon. How can a northern visitors come to graze their cattles in the Southeast, Southwest, and southsouth with deadly weapons to kill us? That is totally insane!
