Till date Nobody asked for investigations to unravel the cold blooded killers,Nigerians check your Conscience, even the Devil is ashamed at the height of your HYPOCRISY.
My take: I am not a fan of the herdsmen neither do I support their actions especially their readiness to kill at the slightest provocation. But we are all Nigerians and our lives matter. Lets be united. Stop politics for a moment and reflect on the way forward. No one should die carelessly and lets stand up against evil. Let’s press on the government to be proactive and be seen as doing something serious about the many burning issues. Let’s save lives. We are Nigerians.
