  • i will say this in parable,( O ye omo to unsunkun, O ye iya e to un re.) meaning its clear to the child that is crying, its also clear to the mother that is petting him. As a leader your responsblity is not on one partcular ppl, and in any area on violent in terrine u dont put sentiment into it. many ppl mislead this Govt, those who clam or think for reaveng or alway leave with reaveng in there health. you cant cry when ur head has cult, its when the time get closer u remember calling everbody together, or when the thousand of ppl has gone to there alear grave. without fighting another country in word. To me u know what u are doing and all is purposely i know many leader in North are big fools so once u giv then food, money, appointment in Govt, they dont care again for masses. Even ppl Gausa, Yakasai etc. when ur ppl has reduce to number, So u can feel the heavy weight of war, u see that is why ‘IC’ didn’t said nothing why bcos its all there plan to reduce u and they have dont it. I will say thank for Rabiu Kwankwaso fpr awarness. one day God will bring the eyes trators out, the blood of innocent man, women, children, we keep wincth hot then all by God power.
