    Another heartless individual off the streets. Bravo to the tricycle operator. The kidnapper should be interrogated and his accomplices apprehended to round up all those involved, prosecuted and when found guilty, executed.

    Glad this is not herdsmen because we have forgotten we have Armed Robbers and Kidnappers like Evans. Just reminding us about how we attach all killings to Fulani herdsmen. We have some devils living among us and who are more dangerous than herdsmen.

    @ Jilo,why are you so sympathetic towards the issues of fulani herdsmen?Robbery,kidnapping and other vices have being in existence for ages.But what makes the issue of fulani agenda so special is their evil ways and backing they are getting from the people who value cow’s life more than human’s.How would you feel if you find cows grazing and destroying your farm?Pretend as if you did not see anything?Let’s call a spade a spade.These herdsmen and their sponsors have hiden agenda.May God save us.
