    I CAN Bet my balls that the burning bush was actually caused by Rat hunters which are most likely to be the Tivs.

    They have A1 when it comes to appetite for meat in general especially Rats/Rodents.
    In fact, I want to say, if it is possible to cook a motor tyre, an average Tiv man wouldn‘t mind eating.

    RIP to the dead.

    I‘m just strolling by sha…
