2016, herdsmen slaughtered over 500 people in one Local Government alone called Agatu, in Benue
2018, over 3000 people were slaughtered all over Nigeria by armed killer herdsmen that year
2019, hundreds of Nigerians are already dead from the actions of the marauding herdsmen
Senator Ekweremadu goes to an event in Germany and he is bundled out of the place to his car, guess what?

And many more
All now have something worthwhile to comment on. Now they have something important to condemn.
Had it been herdsmen who struck yesterday and killed people, would all these people be rushing out in condemnation like they did with Ekweremadu?
Had Ekweremadu been a common Taxi driver based in Germany, would these people have bothered to condemn what happened? Or is it because he is a highly placed Senator?
So it takes the ‘roughing up’ of a Senator to get these peoples attention? Suddenly these people are asking the German Police to get the people who bundled Ekweremadu out, but they can never call on the security forces to save the people being slaughtered in Nigeria.
When armed Nigerian Soldiers were shooting and killing unarmed IPOB protesters, these people didn’t care
When people are being slaughtered in Nigeria, you will hardly hear from these people
Ekweremadu gets bundled to his car and all these people suddenly know what is right and wrong.
Maybe attacking Ekweremadu was not the best way IPOB could have handled it but it seems that it is the only way to get these Nigerian politicians to understand that the people are not happy.
