    THE QUESTION Now is after the arrest, WHAT NEXT?
    Even when tried and found guilty, WHAT NEXT?
    Would they be made to face the capital punishment? If not WHAT NEXT?

    All these actions is nothing but mere eyes service. They ain‘t gonna do them anything. That is why I have come to now support VIOLENCE for VIOLENCE Against fulani herdsmen. Say “NO“ to fulani herdsmen killings.

    The moment you‘re waiting for the govt to intervene, as soon as they stepped in, the matter is as good as forgotten and you‘ve been cheated.

    I take a stroll…

    This is just a palliative measure to calm them down,believe me nothing will come out of it. The Enugu killing is still fresh in our memory. Just watch as it will be trash into the dustbin of history.

    Probably nobody was arrested or they were on safekeeping,the announcement was made to calm the situation down.

    Those are not herdsmen,they are terrorist in disguise….herdsmen were in existence since in Nigeria,the killing of a thing was activated since Buhari became president just like bokoharam was established after he lost to Jonathan..let’s be realistic…nothing like ONE NIGERIA.
