  2. When you heard that this one was arested with weapons, or that one was arested with weapon, that is the end of story, who were the sponsor.

  3. Saudi Arabia Intelligence Chief Visited Mr Gudrot Yonakan in 2012 and presented him with a list of 150 terrorist sponsors who were exposed as a result of imprisonment and interrogation of Kaduna Imam sheik Avuvakar ghummy but no one has been arested since all the happenings. Methink the fulanis are only helping islam do their dirty works. Fulanis have no religion and a merely paganized muslims who visits mosques only on jummah(s). Fulanis are useful tools in the hands of wahabisized pattern of Islam or terror. This is real Fulaniqaeda!

  4. you said well, busy wearing new cloths and snapping shots like a woman, though is he not afterall nemadi sambo woman. southern kaduna peopple do not look 4 trouble but if u seek 4 their trouble they sell u double. this is the begining, God almighty will fight for us and we will pursue out of our lands the likes of buhari, sanusi, el – rufai, babagida, atiku, lamido adamawa, tambuwal, shehu, etc and their fulani/boko harams followers.

  5. you know what, they are facing poverty but their arab mallams do not help them except give them guns to kill Christians and other non Muslims. the real help come from the united nations and Americans (as aid for the country) who are mostly Christians and who they regard as infidels. they grab the monies and do not use them for the purposes meant for ( education, eradicating poverty, improving nutritional status and health and reducing mortality and morbidity rate) but share among themselves falsifying data hey submit. use the monies to marry wives, keep women and buy cars. God will surely judge us
