Linda did you know why people are committing suicide these days? Because most of them put money in ponzi schemes. Some students put their school fees and when they did not receive their money back they become depressed.

So only the Yoruba's were arrested?

Whether Yoruba or not, the criminals were arrested. As long as they are dangerous people, they pose a threat to the community, and nobody should care question what tribe(s) they come from. Not everything has to be about ethnicity or tribalism. Think beyond what you can see.
PS I'm Yoruba and I live in Ife.

Killings that was started by the Hausas, it is only the yorubas that are being arrested? Where are the Murderous hausas that partook in the killings? Yoruba people go see pepper o for hausa hand. They think the Genocide that was perpetuated by the Hausas in connivance of the yorubas during the Civil War against the Ibos will not one day land on their doorstep? They lie. Karma will visit the yorubas for joining force with the hausas but it might take time. It will surely come. This is a tip of the iceberg

And only Yoruba's are arrested. Yoruba ronu!!! U na mumu don do

I want to ask the yorubas this question. 47years after the Nigeria civil war, at of all the major killings that have taken place since, where in any part of the country have we heard Ibos killing yorubas? None. All the Major killings were carried out by the Hausa/Fulanis either against ibos or yorubas. So it baffles my mind that the yorubas joined force with these people to commit Genocide against their Christian brothers from the east. Karma.

We have not heard the names of the herdsmen killing many innocent citizens since all these days, are they ghosts?

To add to my earlier comment, before nigeria became independent, most major ethnic killings were also carried out by the hausa/fulani tribes against other tribes and minorities. After independence, if you take a look at the major ethnic killings in country, it is hard to see the government arresting people from the hausa/fulani tribe. The government only round up yorubas, ibos and minorities irrespective of the location of occurrence. The recent genocide taking place in Kaduna spearheaded by the governor el rufai, how many Fulanis have been brought to justice? None. The fact is some people are living in Nigeria as if they are in the era of Apartheid, south Africa where one class claim Superiority over the other. Yoruba, when una mumu go do?

Yoruba and Hausa fought why arrested only Yoruba. Please, take note.

YORUBAS HAS BEEN SOLD TO THE HAUSA FULANI

I was of the opinion that it takes two to tangle. I must be wrong. Afterall, one can tangle too so i guess the clash was between the Yorubas only. That explains it or what do u think?

No one needs your six cents/ and I hope you develop a sixth sense/ to realize that it is ignoble to vent/ and showcase your lack of common sense/ and knowledge of past events/ that really have nothing to do with the present. Biafra has nothing to do with the present. That's the past. If we want Nigeria to move forward we should stop dwelling and referring to past mistakes human beings like us made and forgetting that we are also creating history for people in the future. We should forget some of the divisive stories our older generation told us.. We shouldn't forget that a quarter of them were illiterates and didn't know more than their boundaries let them. Now we are connected to the world, we see and read about what's happening around the world through social media and other platforms. As far as I am concerned we all have one nationality, we are all Nigerians. We either rise together as Nigerians or fall together as Nigerians. If the country fails today the world wouldn't say Hausa has failed, or Yoruba has failed, or Igbos have failed, or South South. It's gonna say Nigeria has failed. Every time there is a news about something, 70% of people's comments about it goes tribal. The world has evolved beyond the ages of "Things fall apart", beyond the ages where people identified themselves by compounds. Those days you couldn't make a direct phone call from one house to the next, their two years old kids couldn't go on the phone and find YouTube and watch cartoons. The world has evolved beyond those days. We should stop the tribal bias that took our predecessors nowhere, and realize that the way you treat the next man matters, your thoughts and sentiments towards the next man matters. We shouldn't forget that dysfunctional people exist everywhere. We shouldn't see news about something and the first thing someone puts out is "Ibo people sha", or "Yoruba people again".. Comments like these will just deepen the pre existing wound of tribal sentiments and ethnic bias. If ethnicity is the basis on how we see or say the truth, then the country will stay stuck and go nowhere.

Shut up, go and write a book, face the bitter truth. Your mumu don do. Buhari should address these killings. How many hausa's have been arrested since they started butchering people since this CHANGE government took over? They just started anyway. They wl wipe Yoruba out and nothing wl happen. If they try it in any igbo land their blood wl be shed

I am curious...
The Ooni of Ife is resting in the PEACEFUL domain of another royalty, Queen Elizabeth II, while his people are being slaughtered in Ile-Ife by the Hausa-Fulanis. Its interesting that he recently attended the university graduation of the Emir of Kano's daughter in the UK. He posed for pictures with smiles and yet his people are in agony back home. He did not cut short his visit to the UK and return home, nor did he outwardly express his strong reservations of the mayhem in Ile-Ife by turning down the Emir's invitation. Something is just not right. How can he really address his people when he returns home and PROVE TO THEM his expressions of righteous indignation to the Emir of Kano and his kinsmen over the killing of his people? How? What a shame!!!
