    1. Even killing of one person should be of concern to the rulers of Nigeria. They condemned German terror attack even when worse one is happening here. Time shall tell.

  4. Hypocritical! The Hausa-Fulani herdsmen, Boko haram and military personnel continue to massacre defenseless Christians and Igbos in Nigeria while preaching peace and religious tolerance. This country Nigeria needs to be divided to solve these barbaric killings.
