    1. Hmmmnn, when I say Igbos are the black equivalent of Russia and North Korea, and that's why they love Trump and Putin, it sounds like I hate Igbos but I'm not the one that named IPOB 10th terrorist group. IPOB is not the only terrorist group in Igbo land, they don't even attack others; they destroy their own people...these people are somewhere between sociopaths and narcissists.

    2. I stand with you. Regardless of the recent happenings in the country, I still believe in a new and better Nigeria.

  2. The IPOB is bad, but truth be told putting them 10th? It goes to show that the press and media would do everything they can to twist the narrative. That is what they want the world to believe. The elders in igbo land have failed the youths of Igboland! They refused to put a stop to this nonsense and it has consumed them.
    The Bible rightly said" the truth shall set you free". If something is wrong , kindly classify it as being wrong without sentiments.
