Stressing that the country will not bow to the machinations of evildoers, President Buhari vowed that the assailants would be hunted down and made to pay for the sacrilege committed.



  1. Our security agents should up their game and stop all these killings by fishing out those that are carrying out these despicable acts and their sponsors. It doesn’t tell well about us as a people and the value we place on human lives.

  2. People are dying everyday, your nonentity in royalty is condemning. How can human life be so worthless to these evil lots, their blood sucking agents and their foot writers? Judgement!

  3. PMB is for more of these killings you are coming in 2019?

    Do you mean you have done your best about it?

    Do you remember how BH was the bane of GEJ?


  4. Continue talking nonsense while people are being killed by the herdsmen everyday. Don’t no y u don’t want to label them a terrorist which they are.
