It seems that the killer herdsmen have now settled in Igbo parts of Delta state. Okpana and environ is now their favourite area of operation.

And I will fathom a guess why they chose to stay there.
The cue to the WHY they stay there is found in the next quote from this news article.

Now, you have it!

Pray, tell me how the minds of these Igbo vigilantes are working...

You mean, you go after heavily armed terrorists EMPTY HANDED AND UNARMED?

Chineke ekwena ife ojoo! Tufiakwa!

What is wrong with our people these days?

Are they frightened of automatic weapons?

Why go after armed men empty handed?

Is this a form of psychosis or what?

Now, they will expect to be pitied and sympathized with in typical Igbo emotional ways.

Do these people really think that anyone out there cares about their emotionalism and sentiments?

This thing is getting to a level of group madness, and is becoming too annoying.

If they don't want to fight, they should not lament. They should quietly take their unarmed cowardly men and bury them in silence.

They should also donate all their wives and daughters to the handful of terrorists in their bushes.

As a matter of fact they do not deserve to live on, or own that land.

Cry me a river.

Nonsense.

BTW, this is really an act of war, and those terrorists would NEVER leave that forest until the people of that area smoke ALL of them out -for good.
Over the next few years, we may get an "Emir of Okpanam".
Ndi ara.
