    Impunity all over the land. Irresponsible organs of state like DSS trying to stoke embers. Hope there is no orchestrated plan being executed and many of us are in the dark. How can you explain the sudden surge in so-called herdsmen killing and maiming wantonly all over the land, from their northern homeland, to east, south and west of the country and the powers that be only intervene when these perpetrators are announced to have been dealt with anywhere? Is there something going on that many of us don’t know about but which we should care to know about? How concerned should we all be getting?

    A LAND POLLUTED BY BLOOD WILL NEED A STRONGER BLOOD, (THE BLOOD OF JESUS) TO BE FREE.
