    And what will the dubious government say this time around? Two brothers fighting each other in Dubai? Kill all the stupid Hausas in our land, let them kill our own in their land. For how long will people see the handwriting on the wall; one idiot will ask how about our people in the north. They are as good as dead if that’s the case. Let’s just do the needful so that they will know that we got nerves too.

    Hello NDI IGBO IBEM,Recall that we were once told of HEAP OF GUNS STARSHED in Trailers coming from Arewa land nd those guns belonged to the Hausa nd Fulani people selling yam in Nnewi.

    Recall that One Garba Umar was appointed as the DPO of ANAMBRA STATE barely 3months ago.

    Recall that Hausas are the only ONE WITH THIS KIND OF KILLING MENTALITY.

    HAVE YOU ALL not seen the handwriting on the wall?,Have we not Understood the SHETIMA YERIMA claims dat “they must make sure our BIAFRA STRUGGLE 2RU IPOB nd other banners must be seen as terrorists Group”.

    The Game Is Up To Us ALL. CAN’T WE ALL SEE REASON TO BELIEVE OUR SAFETY REST ON OUR SHOULDERS.

    The World Have Seen How OUR readiness to go out from this DARKNESS CALLED NIGERIA.
