  1. Since all this herdsmen saga, i never hear that any of them was charged to court…are they above the law?,or do they disappear after committing such atrocities, or do their cows help them in fighting also?.

    They should check very well about people disguising themselves as herdsmen and perpetuating these atrocities, it’s unbelievable that few (3 or 4) people rearing hundreds of cow will take over entire village.
    Let them stop calling them herdsmen and call them terrorist or Bokoharam, that will be more clear.

  2. The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has not gotten it totally right in fighting terrorism. In fact what we’ve witness in the past couple of years is sharp increase in killings of defenseless innocent civilians right in their homes in some part of the country. The death toll resulting from the wanton killings of Benue people by the Fulani’s herdsmen has had many wondered if Nigeria actually have a good leader in charge of the armed forces. As we speak the Niger Delta region is awash with all sort of military armed men deployed ready to take on the militants who are not a threat to their population, whereas the Benue People have been deprived of military resources and have been largely left alone with no adequate security provided to protect their lives and properties. Nearly no day you won’t hear of killings in Benue state. With this intense killings going on in that region,it is so shocking that the administration has not deem it fit to collaborate with the infuriated and frustrated Governor of Bunue State in going after the killer-Fulani herds men who often publicly steal, rape, maim and wield sophisticated weapons to spill the blood of the innocents residents and drive them out of their homes. No doubt the war against terrorism has not been worn by the regime. Unfortunately,reticence on the part of the country’s leader to smother the monstrous activities of the Fulani Herdsmen could give birth to other localised armed groups that will further send the country into massive chaos and killings. The president has to show by his action that he is a president not of a particular ethnic group in the country but of the entire Nigerians. The lives of every citizens should matter to any leader of a country. Therefore,the president should rise and bring the evil,demonic and destabilizing activities of the Fulani Herd’s men to a permanent end.
