  1. I observe that only Yorubas are the suspects displayed. Are there no Hausas among the suspects in communal clash that was started when an Hausa man assaulted the wife of Yorubas, where the Hausas killed a Yoruba vulganizer, beheaded him and and publically displaying his head? We are observing the neutrality of the Federal government on this case. If this country is for all of us, if justice is balance and for all, we are carefully and keenly watching.

  5. It is a shame that the police chose to do this to please the government of President Buhari and the northern elements; all the people arrested are from Ile-Ife the host town to this Hausa Invaders who chose to vandalise our peaceful town thus taking advantage of our peaceful and accommodating nature. We in Ife are not cowards and we would not fold our arms while the Hausa community in Ife goes on rampage destroying everything and killing our people, even displaying a severed head of our man on a stick pole, what an effontry and barbaric act. This may be the beginning of the end for a Nigeria Nation, we would not fold our arms while the power of the law is being abused in Nigeria. How many hausa/Fulani has been arrested for all the killing all over the country, they do most of the robberies on our highways with the AK 47 riffles supplied to them by the northern cabals and government. This is a sad story to hear that some people in Nigeria of today are sacred cows, while others are just rats. Shame on our law enforcement agency that was allerted about a volatile situation which they chose to ignore for 24 hours until it became a wild fire. If care is not taken, this is the beginning of the end, you cannot break our spirit.
