  1. HAUSAS are seriously suffering from their lack of education and friendly disposition wherever they go in the country. The level of intolerance and their love for violence,maiming,killing of innocent souls have had many nigerians wondered if it would be logical to continue dwelling with this set of humans. For many decades ago their HAUSA leaders in the north had the ample opportunities to enroll their people to school in order to acquire sound education and practical skills to add and contribute to the growth of our nation. The lack of education and acquisition of enlightenment on their part has now proved very costly to innocents nigerians. It is now appropiate on the part of our president to speak out against all manner of violence perpetrated by any tribe and promise to deal with anyone caught hacking any nigerians to death either in the line of religion or tribal issue. Cautioning the nigerian population and a stern warning from him could change situation on the ground. However,failure to do so will be doom not just to the country but to his leadership as many will view him as insensitive president. Facing the full force of the law of whoever is engaging in all manner killings,be it religious or tribal is necessary in order to smother the rise of this type incidents in the country.

  2. IN MY CULTURE(Igbo), if a man is chasing another man and the other man runs to an elderly man/woman for refuge, the attacker must at least exercise patience until the other man leaves the elderly man/woman. But here, the mallam rather slew both the prey and the refuge. This is how they draw blood everywhere they go. No Igboman or any other southerner for that matter would dare such a thing in the North. But not so with them, for in their thinking, Nigeria is their heritage.

    THE BEST way to relate with that man who regards cows worthier than humans is to keep him in a separate country with people who reason like him, and be in a different country with those who reason like human beings. It is safer to stay with a man who permits dialogue when you disagree with him, than the other man who draws your blood without restraint at the slightest discord.

  3. Ask me, killing human being is nothing to Hausa-Fulani,they like innocent Human Blood,like their traditional brothers Arabs and Afganistian,that reason, no need we still force to stay under 1 Flage call naija.see after 100ys no love amoung each other, atless u dont see other tribes kill others, is always Hausa-Fulanis that kill other tribes.

  4. what is wrong with d hausa people all they care about is death and causing troubles everywhere. wish everyone can go back to their states

  5. am sorry but the truth need to be told this people are equivalent to animals it seems the only they know is killing and nothing more..what pains me most is that they do things no one can do in their area (North).
    i pray that the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace… i also pray that God will restore peace to the land (Amen)

  6. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE STUPID, IDIOT AND ILLITERATE SET OF PEOPLE? WHAT U CANNOT DO IN THERE OWN LAND, THEY WILL BE DOING IT IN ANOTHER PEOPLE’S LAND. THE IGBOS SHOULD WAKE UP FROM THEIR SLUMBER AND CHASE THESE PEOPLE AWAY BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.

  7. There is nowhere in nigeria that Hausas are not causing trouble now, from lagos to abuja and now its d east. What is wrong with dis aboki people.

  8. Hausas need to be crush out in this country,they are nothing but cow, they don’t stuggle for peace but violence instead,they see killing as their hobby, violence as their usual practice.

  9. Killing is their calling. Their religion supports it, encoraged it, enforced it, preach it, practiced it, propagate it. So what do you expect? @ Egon Idahosa.
    THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER,

    I take a stroll…
