Cattle herders invade people's home/farms, murder them in cold blood and your President has never offered a word of sympathy to those killed in cold blood, the fool came on the news and said that Cattle herders have suffered the same fate.

And you are all saying one Nigeria. If any of you says that Nigeria should continue as one nation with all these atrocities brazenly supported by the blood letting President Buhari let these killers visit your families.

My small take.
