*Sigh* Smh. I don't even know what to say at this point. I don even begin tire to dey worry myself over my Yoruba kinfolks matter coz it seems our people are generally o.k with their present condition. To think that our leaders didn't even bother to publicly/strongly condemn the last attack alone is very depressing. We are behaving like a conquered people. Such a sad shame. Smh.
Apparently, the reason why they're attacking is because soldiers have made the Bunkering business difficult for them in Arepo, Ishawo and some other parts of Ikorodu. Y'all know Arepo has always been synonymous to pipeline vandalism
That's why they are attacking communities. Amosun is very aware of this but we still haven't heard form him meanwhile this is Musiwa419's post on nairaland. I wish that guy was here. He's highly informed
The ethnicity of these criminals is not in question. We know as a matter of fact that they are Ijaw Militants. Hitherto, there criminal activities which only involves Oil Bunkering and Pipeline Vandalism was restricted to the creeks and waterways of Arepo(Ogun) and Itowolo(Lagos). Now, they have opened new fronts in Ogijo, Isawo, Elepete, Majidun, Festac(Yes ! The same Festac in Lagos), Igbo-Olomu, Ibese, etc, etc, all in Lagos and Ogun state respectively, killing; raping; Pillaging; and looting in their wake. There are concerns that the Ijaw militants might open another front at Ese-Odo in Ondo state
These recent attacks have been going on for weeks now but local media has been underepeorting it. The Ijaw militant attacks on Yoruba riverine communities in Lagos and Ogun are real, alarming and frightening. It is very much more serious than what the media is reporting. The casualty figure is very high.
Rumour mill has it that these Ijaw militants have the tacit support of some elites from the Niger Delta. This place is not appropriate to mention names, but we know some of them.

This is serious. That Dangote refinery had better not have Niger Delta oil i mind as a source. Because that can only bring more Wahala into the communities that would be hosting the pipelines conveying the oil to the refinery.
Now they are bringing the war to Yorubaland, let us see how Yorubas will fight back. As for me, I no send anymore. Imagine checking post here and there to find one single Yoruba talking about this? just one. Apart from Nairaland, this is the only place I have found. The APC bastards are claiming this is the Ijaw and Ibo coalition to destroy Yoruba and Northern alliance. Can you believe it? Talking shitty politics with Yoruba lives lost. Then you have the Ipob/Ijaw supporters agbayas all quiet over facebook. They are the loudest during the fulani herdsmen attack but now they ain't saying shit except for one or two supporting the claims that the Ijaw militants are in fact fulani herdsmen. Sha! If another civil war should break out in naija before the end of this year, I pity Yoruba folks. We will definitely get it left and right, this is not a curse.
