When will northern elders tell their people, this rabid dog behaviour of always wanting to attack others is not the right way to live? Why do Northerners always think they have a monopoly of violence. It is very irritating.

Violence without genuine provocation, seems to be the culture in certain parts. Political, Ethnic, Religious, Economic and now Sports. Nigeria, the blind and terminally sick giant of Africa.

SO MUCH JOY IN VIOLENCE!
