Solution to the Security Problem

I hope this not the same Musari Community that is a walking distance from Maimalari Barrack with military checkpoints located at every corner. Since it is obvious that the military cannot protect themselves from this criminals, every Nigeria should arm himself with a gun so that at least you have a fighting chance.

Utangirma Allah! People will

Utangirma Allah!

People will always reap what they sow. You cannot massacre innocent Igbo children without karma catching up with you. This is the beginning of savagery in all parts of Nigeria where motherfuckers joined hands and made war against Igbo people. Alhamdulilahi.
