  1. I don’t get the news at all. Mr lkeokwu intercepted lPOB members who geather at Orji Owerri in lmo state. How many herdsmen terrorist group has Mr lkeokwu intercepted? It is unfortunate that those who fight to liberate Nigerians are victims of the very people they are fighting for. Very soon lkeokwu will be intercepted by the government of Nigeria for the very offense he accused his brethren.

  2. Were there seen with fire arms, if not on what grounds are you arresting them. It is insensitive to think of such. They you have shakao openly threatening Nigerias and you can’t do anything. It is about time you stop infringing on the rights of citizens.
