January 14, 2018 – Hausa Fulani Protest: Soldiers Deployed To Makurdi Benue To Restore Peace & Order
Igbo Traders Resist Hausa/Fulani Youths Who Attempted To Steal Break Into Their Electronic Shops
Soldiers have been deployed to Makurdi, the capital city of Benue state to restore peace hours after some protesting Hausa and Fulani youths destroyed multi million naira properties of Benue indigenes.
On Saturday night, soldiers deployed by the State Security Council took over the capital city to avert reprisal attack from Benue indigenes whose motorcycles and vehicles were set ablaze by the protesting Hausa-Fulani youths.
The protest started when some Hausa-Fulani youths vented their anger on innocent people over alleged attack on them by Tiv (Benue) youths on Thursday when the 73 victims of Fulani herdsmen massacre were laid to rest.
The youths destroyed over 15 vehicles and molested passengers and motorists. Residents said gunshot sounds were heard in the city.
The protesting youths went as far as Madikpo and Dele Bookshop area of the city where shop owners were seen running helter skelter.
However, they met great resistance when they attempted to break into electronic shops owned by Igbo traders in Madikpo where a fight broke out.
Another eyewitness said the protest was fueled by an accident in which an Hausa man was knocked down by a speeding driver.

WHAT AN INSULT Upon injury? So after killing about 150 people (and the Nigeria media who don‘t want to tell us the TRUTH puts is at 73), these babarians do not thank their stars that they were still allowed to even hang around within the state instead, they are still protesting and destroying more properties of indigenes of THE STATE??? Chai…
THEN ONE WILL WONDER, ARE BENUE PEOPLE ALL SLEEPING OR WHAT?
WHAT SORT OF NONSENSE IS THAT?

Clueless regime. Is this the right time the commander in chief of armed forces would authorised the Benue state security council to send it army to quell the unrest in that troubled land? This is clearly an evil administration under a heartless president. The solders were now released from their barracks. why? Because the aggrieved TIV are now attacking the hausa Fulanis in their territory. But Now that the tide of the attack have been shifted to that of hausa Fulani attacking the residence of Bunue in reprisal, it is so shocking that the army released from their barracks still could not be able to apprehend those Hausa fulanis who reportedly destroyed property worth millions of Naira. Will the Benue state residence whose properties are now been destroyed by the Hausa Fulanis be compensated by the government? The simple advice to the benue state residents is this: imitate the igbos sel-defence measure in their market square and defend yourself. Raise your own army to protect your families and your indigenous land. Do not wait for the Fulani president intervention. He is strongly behind the bloodthirsty marauders.

I don’t know why British bring this clone in the name of Buhari which is giving these bastards the impetus to act with impunity. Nigeria is already burning.

the fact of this matter remains that such atrocities are not publishes on international news papers and media such CNN,BBC. USA the backing of Hausa’s by USA AND BBC are the cause of all these killings.
no comment from Buhari or Osibanjo, soon the Fulani’Terrorist will unleash on the Yorubas then voices will be heard, but it will be too late
