Nigeria: A place cow life worth more than human being life


Is Nigeria a place for human inhabitation following the recent happenings in Nigeria?

Early this years the murderous herdsmen visited some six Benue villages, causing flow of blood in the state and more than 56 people corpses in their trail, not long ago the chicken roosters has gone to Plateau state to roost more chicks killing more than 86 chicks in the state. It was noted that Plateau State Governor Solomon Lalong was one of the very first to condemn Governor Samuel Ortom for enacting the anti-open grazing law, to check the rampaging herdsmen.

The plateau state victims are poor, hapless villagers honestly trying to eke out a living off the land. The victims are innocent women and saintly children. Only a beast would look a tot in the face and thrust a dagger into her, see a the tiny toes and bring a machete down on her head, ignore the shrill cry of suddenly orphaned kids and push all of them into a burning house with their parents’ corpses. But it so unfortunate that the presidency could do any to the kills instead they went on to arrest the innocent ones whom are try their best to protect their crops from destruction by the Fulani’s cows.
