“I’m sad with the comment made by IGP, he is unfair to my people, if such happens to his people, would he have said such a thing? It is unprofessional of him. Why should he say it was a communal crisis, was there any report that a Fulani died?

“I wonder how he called this communal crisis when Tiv people including pregnant women and children were killed with no fulani casualty.

Agada said, “I think the IGP was uninformed, if not, such statement ought not to come from him, it is unfortunate that the police boss was not abreast with issues on ground, perhaps, he is overwhelmed with the security problem in the country”.
