“How does it make sense to send soldiers, helicopters and artillery to Orlu, because of Eastern Security Network, that do not kill or abduct Nigerians, and then send a delegation to negotiate with killer herdsmen, bandits and other terrorists that kill Nigerians? – Reno Omokri”.

We are being treated like a conquered nation since after the war, yet some gullible set of Igbo leaders in Ohaneze refused to see it and it’s high time we cease to be part of a country that doesn’t value our contribution. Onye ajuru anaro aju onwe ya!

buhari has no agenda except stealing peoples lands and hand them over to the fulanis, unfortunately for him, nnamdi KANU who has already opened the eyes of other Nigerians to the plot has frustrated his plans.

It’s very sad how our so called Igbo leaders are betraying there people because of peanut of political position while their counterparts in the north are busy canvasing for amnesty for the bandits in their states these ones are sending military to fight ESN.
