He noted that the Fulani herdsmen go about with heavy weapons and no one harasses them.

Lamenting the search by the military men, Benjamin wrote on Facebook: “Today my house and the entire parish was turned inside out by the military in-search for weapons. They say I keep weapons, for heaven sake, I don’t do weapon. The Fulani herdsmen go about with heavy weapons killing innocent people and never a day has any one of them been harassed by the military. There are instances where the military have even assisted them to carry out their attacks on Defenseless citizens. The soldiers we have in this country are one sided. Why are they trying to divide the very country they are called to defend on religious line. Would they have done this to an imam or the mosque?”

Nigerians are not happy with this and are wondering how the country got to this point. Some are accusing the military of being corrupt while others are calling on the church to rise up against this injustice.
