    When indeed will the intelligent people of Nigeria from the Middle-belt to the South-East and from the South-West to the South-South of Nigeria summon up enough courage to draw the attention of International Court for Human Rights and indeed the ICC to these unending attrocities and genocide being constantly (like a recurring decimal) committed by Fulani herdsmen-turned-savages against innocent rural farmers in those areas? Indeed both the president of Nigeria and head of the Fulani clan in Nigeria as well as his Minister of Interior, a certain “Major General Abdulrahman Dambazau (rtd)” and a few others in that increasingly rogue-looking government in that West African country have a case to answer at the Hague courts. Indeed how long will the good people of Nigeria wait or pretend nothing wrong is happenning?
