    This APC regime headed by terminally ill, illiterate certificate forger and perjurer Muhammadu Buhari is both a tragedy and a disaster of monumental proportions.

      That’s exactly the way it is.

        Apc, still far better in all ways! At least, they’re not distributing the treasury, to Ministers, Governors, uncles, cousins, election officers, Police, Army, even, Jonathan’s personal Doctor, has his share of the treasury! The worst, PDP, has the richest First lady, in the world! Buhari, might be very sick, his vice, continuing the war on corruption, which is the cancer, that needed deep operation! May the Gods, heal him, quick, fast & furious!! Buhari, the poorest ex or incumbent President in Africa! Who lived, or, whose means of livelihood, before current position, is on 200 cows, in Daura, his home town, Katsina state!! Babangida, Abdusalam others, gift out, more than 600 cows, to friends, at every Muslim festival! Anyways, APC, is still the best so far, as at now! Economy might be bad, which is due to years of CANCEROUS CORRUPTION!!

      Last time I checked Akwa Ibom was not under APC. May be you forget to take your drugs to enable you regain a little senses to know that the killing fields in Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Bayelsa are under the control of Akpabio, Wike and co. A proper dose of your prescription will allow you to know the party they belong to!

        You are a moron. The Police Force is federally controlled.

        • Shahokaya

          …and that is why the killings are taking place in PDP states? Please d us a favor take your drugs or get out from here!

        • serubawon70

          Yeah, And the killers are federally controlled. Abi?


    These killings are nothing but the fruits of the SEED OF VIOLENCE, CULTISM, POLITICAL HOOLIGANISM & BANDITRY, KIDNAPPING AND ELIMINATION OF PERCEIVED POLITICAL OPPONENTS planted by the immediate past administration in the State. Before then, this state was not known for these evil vices. It was during the past administration that THREE BROTHER OF A RENOWN EVANGELIST HELEN UKPABIO WERE MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD IN THE FULL OF THEIR MOTHER. THE MOTHER DIED LATER FROM THE SHOCK. What is happening is “kill me, I kill you”. These cultist have turned against themselves. May it continue until the last of these evil men is wiped out from the surface of the earth except they turn a new leaf. But I pray their innocent family members don’t fall victims.

    The killing in Ukanafun is getting out of hand. The Governor and the Commissioner of Police have lost control of the situation. The Federal Government should as a matter of urgency declare a state of emergencing in the LGA and appoint a military administrator to take charge of the State.
