      You forgot to mention Vampire who killed over 200 innocent persons. He is from SE. Since these people are afraid to call for a referendum to leave Nigeria, I think it is time to pray for them.

      • Julius

        Yeah , but, they will tell you it never happened or blame somebody or other people for it. Especially ..”Na the Yorubas” fault. You are right since they are too coward to call for it, I think we all should help them and call for the referendum. Enough is Enough !
