  • While BOKO HARAM is kiiling igbos in the North, with nobody being arrested, Eatsern Governors sit and watch their UNARMED, PEACEFULLY DEMONSTRATING CITIZENS in the East being ABUSED by the so called Nigerian Police, chaired by some Tribalist from another Igbo hating part of the Country.
    Gone were the days when Igbos were selfless in issues that concerned them as a whole,
    SHAME.

  • POLICE my ASS!!! This mess is becoming worrisome. How can the so called Nigerian police arrest MASSOB members that are not even with any weapon, only that they are finding for a better solution to their plight. This hatred against IGBO’S is quiet alarming coupled with our selfish Eastern govs that pays no attention to all these molestations. Nigerian police are afraid to arrest BOKO HARAM members in the North. BOKO HARAM and MASSOB which one is more violent than other?
