    They could be our own family. Everyday we see updates on the health of Yusuf Buhari, obviously the president should at least understand the pain of losing or almost losing a loved one. Today he’s stable, tomorrow he’s airlifted. These people have no one to fight or protect them. They weren’t riding expensive power bikes, they were in there own homes!!! Slaughtered like cattle. Their loved ones will never see them again. All because you have some silly affiliation with the terrorists that perpetrate these crimes. Nigeria where is our outrage. Benue where is your outrage!!! The system that’s supposed to protect its people has failed them! Look at the caskets. Who is safe from these terrorists!

    I told everyone I know not to vote Buhari in 2015! He has been silent all the while Fulani herdsmen ravaged different communities especially in Benue State.
    Evil begets evil! When the unrighteous are in power, people mourn.
    Evil will never depart from the house of the perpetrators and their sponsors!

    this only reason i love Ekiti State Gov.he said it clear, no way Fulanis killers into his state, he will not allowed what happen in Benue ,Jos and Taraba States to happen in is own state.is time to kill any fulanis with animal so call herdmens, majority are not even fulanis,that move in during Usman Dan Fodio,when he bring Islam into naija,150-200 ys ago. is even new comers killing people in their own father lands.
