    So much for asking diasporans to come and develop their community. The hospitality is incredible. So sad that the place he should call home only became his grave. RIP man

    This calamity has to be stopped in our nation before this herdsmen kill every body. Person that has left his father land for 30years in searching for green pastures and later come back but murdered by foolish people called herdsmen. May God be with the family and grant them ability to bear the loss.

    Sad. No one has monopoly to kill fellow human. First, the man himself should have beefed up his own security by securing his land with fence and gate. Thisi s not necessarily Buhari to blame. Buhari is federal. What happens to loca and state govt to protect their people?.

    We know federal govt always provides funds for each state but they loot the money. Stop screaming Buhari about everything. It makes no sense.

    This is a great loss. Are we really one? Must we stay together as a nation? Why are some people afraid of going to their own tent? Bush men will ever be bush men. Shame on them.
