"The Fulani herdsmen have already declared war on our people, so it is either the people want to die on their knees or die on their feet. That is why we are calling on the Nigerian state to prevent a situation where it will degenerate into a free-for-all. We are warning now, they never warned!!!"Excerpts from Mr Yinka Odumakin's Interview with Punch Nigeria.
Hmmmmm, something worrisome is brewing, if the situation is not quickly arrested and the warring factions called to order, Biafra might get its Secession request granted after all considering the fact that a civil war would be unavoidable. PMB sir, I really much prefer reading about the civil war in history books, apart from my selfish interests at remaining safe with my Yoruba family, a civil war falls pretty low in pecking order on my dear country's wishlist.

Based on Falae's uncertain claims, the blame game making rounds, the insensitive utterances from "Adamu Ciroma's kins", the dare-devil repeat attacks by a miscreant group on a recently kidnapped man's farm and the unpatriotic utterances of shallow-thinking citizens to avoid a bias stance, a stance for impunity and lawlessness, a stance for aiding and abetting criminals and a stance for aggravating an already unpleasant situation into an avoidable civil war, all I will just say in the spirit of true democracy and with the conscious knowledge that the survival of one tribe is quite dependent on the other tribe,is that, the government should treat this wound before it becomes a sore.
God Bless Nigeria
