    Still struggling to understand this story.do the vandals live in the same community they destroyed? How then can they be identified or suspected to be Ijaw Militants when geographically Ijaw is not that close to where this attack took place?
    If the culprits are known, report them to appropriate authorities for necessary action. Human life is too precious to be hidden in rhetorical while danger looms.
