  1. Is he a fulani or hausa or Yoruba? What nonsense? This power you are using wrongly will turn around and fight you. Do you know that power belongs to God? Power is given for good purposes but if you turn around to use it for evil,you will become a victim sooner and leave bulk punishment for your generations. Stop! Do good! This so much hatred for igbos won't change your misery. If you pin someone down,you are also pinning yourself down. So you see, the freedom of igbos and Biafrans is your chrished freedom,peace and prosperity. Lets all free ourselves. This is what the whites don't want for us.
