  1. These ignorant Igbo people will not destroy this nation. Nigerians should let them go so we can preserve our sanity. This is the reason why i said no igbo pastor can pray for me. Everything na business. They can kill their mama, na business.


    1. I don't believe that we have bad tribe, I believe we have bad people in every tribe.

  2. @Tunde people like you are part of the major problem we have in this country! The badoo boys killing families at Ikorodu are dominantly (if not only) Yoruba and engage in money ritual. Hausas on their own part prefer their cattle to you so you see why you can't think that way about the Igbos or any other people for that matter. No ethnic group in Nigeria is righteous. We all have sinned and our leaders both past and present failed us. They have only shown us that money is the ultimate no matter how you earn it! That is why they steal and steal and leave you and me helpless. Think about what I've written and stop being judgmental towards any group. There is only on race and it's the human race but there two different types of people- good people and bad people. And each of us know exactly where we fall! Have a good day. And yes I am Igbo, but first A NIGERIAN!
