  1. When will the IGP parade killer herdsmen nabbed ? Daily we see young men and women from South being paraded as Yahoo people while the herdsmen, bandits and terrorists from the North are freely operating in different parts of Nigeria. Why are the Yoruba that brought this Northern evil on us keeping quiet? Am talking about the western press that is only calling for the head of Nnamdi Kanu
