  1. This is a sad news. I mercy the farmer Mr Alamu. He shouldn’t have taken the laws into his hands. It is true that what these so called herds men do to people’s farms is always so annoying but that withstanding we all have to endure instead of revenging with anger
    You know with anger, some one can damage something
    The court should tamper justice with mercy, because I feel he did not plan to kill Adamu
    These cattle rearers should try to be careful how they rear their cattles and stop carrying them into people’s farms..o

  2. I will use this medium to implore the States and federal governments to take drastic measures in curbing the menace of those herdsmen grazing farmers farm which is not good at all. Though, jungle justice is not the solution to what happened.

  3. Taking the law from someone’s hand is so pathetic, government should please do something about this herdsmen and finding lasting solution to it. Taking law from will now backfired to you. Government should tampered justice with mercy.

  4. Why should they arrest him nah? So they prefer this people and their cows to be grazing on people crops abi. Since the farmers have been begging Federal Government to provide a place for these herdsmen and their cows still nothing has been done. They should please free him joor

  5. Taking The Law From Someone’s Hand Is So Pathetic, Government Should Please Do Something About This Herdsmen And Finding Lasting Solution To It. Taking Law From Will Now Backfired To You. Government Should Tampered Justice With Mercy.
