  1. Pple talk of boko haram, dis fulani pple are d real terrorist. I dnt knw why d police usually handle crime against d fulanis so tight, cos they kill, maim, rape pple on their farms nd go free without intimidations. Abeg, police dismiss d case nd release d farmer nd his wife

  2. Why are these so call herdsmen wicked and heartless like this? They kill, rape, rob and all sorts of evil are from them, and yet the police will never see anything wrong with them. Who’s faulty between the fulani man and the suspect? Nawa for Nigeria police!!!

  3. Why detain d̶̲̥̅̊ farmer and his wife? Justice got served on d̶̲̥̅̊ alleged rapist.. D̶̲̥̅̊ farmer did nothing wrong cos he was defending his wife. Pls police shud release them and face d̶̲̥̅̊ real issue of insecurity that has befallen us! Smh!!

  4. I don’t understand why these Fulani people are taking us for ride everywhere in the South West and our Governments are not really doing much. The Police, i don’t know whether there is an “ORDER” from above that whatever the Fulanis or Buroros does, they should not be charged to court and jailed. Can you just IMAGINE the case of this farmer, it happens here in my community too, they will even direct their cattle’s into your farm and eat up everything and if you challenge them they will kill you. God save us in this Country.
