A Federal Lawmaker representing Ibarapa constituency showed up today to sympathize with the Igangan residents over the loss of lives and properties ocassioned by some suspected hersdmen's attacks. In a video making rounds the social media, the politician was gripped by the angry youths who were hell bent not to listen him!
Their youth leader who was seen tackling the politician said they wanted good weapons to defend themselves from subsequent attacks. He revealed that the herdsmen that carried out the latest attacks were using powerful weapons but they couldn't fully engage them.
He said: "We can't fold our arms anymore, help us buy weapons to defend ourselves. If you don't do it, remember people are waiting for you at home", the leader angrily said!
I donít blame all these politicians but rather the masses. With what happened in Igangan before Sunday Igboho chased Fulani herdsmen away, I never expected LGA elections would take place in Ibarapa Local Areas but people still came out and voted for them.
There is no way our politicians will ever take us seriously. When Sunday Igboho was running inside the bush with other OPC members, where were your politicians and town elites?
