    @ all of you that abuses and curse me, igba eyele kii roju gbele, ti adiye ba bale okun ara kii ro, peace will be far from you people, idiots. I know you will not agree with me, go to neighbouring towns and ask of your attitude and you will hear what will be coming out of their mouth.
    You are dubious people, you always like to cheat and claims what doesn’t belong to you, the hatred is in you people that if you see someone progressing around you people when that person is not indigene you will be looking for their down falls.
    The school doesn’t belong to you people, it is federal government property so you don’t need to call me an ingrate.
    Emi lomo ake kaka koloro ogbo, ti oloro ba gbo kini baba oloro yio se.
    Your proudness is too much even when talking you can notice it, as if you are the owner of the world.
    Olukoyi o sinmi ogun, aroni mi o sinmi ija.
    Just accept that am telling you the reality, but the truth is bitter.
    No body is beefing you people,
    I am not from erin-ile, and not that I am supporting them, I am a neutral man but a man of justice.
    Erin too are too agresive but, let me tell you, no one will be looking and allow another person to take what belongs to him.
    You brain washed people burnt a house belonging to your son at offa just because he married erin-ile woman, can you see that you are brain damaged? Why can’t they chase the woman away and let her husband take the properties, but you burnt it and set your own son back to square zero. Keni mani ni gbogbo yin.

    @offa people that is here, you people have to think twice, before burning any thing that belongs to a man that marries from erin-ile among you people, you are setting your own son back to zero point when you do that, I even heard that you went ahead and burn part of a school belonging to someone that married erin-ile woman. Hmm shame on you people because you are hurting yourselves.

    I rest my case, I can’t be telling you all things but all I know is, “the truth is bitter”
    I know you will abuse and even curse me but

    ti ewure ba boju we hin, a fi epe fun elepe, ti aguntan ba boju weyin aa fi epe fun elepe, owo ti ogede ba gbe arare lo fi n na, eru ti okiti ogan ba ru ori arare lo dii le, kii ibi o pada si ori onibi, kii asasi o pada si ori alasasi. Aaseee.
    Ko ii ye lake, beni koi ye loko, ko I ye lolla, to fi dele orangun olomo ogboye o.

    For your information, those of you that said offa fed me, I gat my money some where else not from offa and I came there to invest, secondly, the school is the one holding me down there and it doesn’t belong to offa but federal government.

    @bolu, erin-ile can never be under your shoe “offa” except you want to cause another war and that your statement sounds like a fool, that is all I have being saying that you people talks with pride. believe it or you leave it,
    Nitori pe otototo, orororo, otooto la n jepa, otooto lan je imumu,
    Asa o jo kunugba beni awodi kan o jo ejo afayafa, oun to ba jo ara lafi n wera.

    Even the way you treats students in unfair, you see them as animals which suppose not to be so. Why?

    All my prayer is peace will be restored back to the two lands. Iree o

    Oba offa and the NURTW is the cause of this crisis, the people believe they have influence from government, so they want to use that on erin-ile, but failed them. For two weeks NURTW has been hostile to Erin-ile, and MUFU, Oba offa left them, Mufu supported the offa NURTW, They hired Niger delta to fight erin-ile, the delta open fire on erin-ile people on offa market day after the boarder, wounding many people in erin-ile, so erin-ile went back to prepare for the niger delta who came to fight for offa. So the war began. Mufu made a speech on air saying ‘ No curfew yet, the war has just begin’ what a devilish Oba is that, who want to waste his people for rituals.

    MUFU, oba offa and NURTW are the devils behind this war. They hired Niger delta against Erin-ile, but it failed. The Niger delta open fire inside erin ile at the motor part near the boarder, shooting Erin-ile indigene, so Erin-ile went to prepare for the Niger-delta. So the war began. MUFU OBA OFFA the devil in disguise made a statement saying ‘ No curfew yet, the war has just begin’

    OH LORD! My people Perish for lack of Wisdom and not Lack or “BIOLOGY or CHEMISTRY”….. The reason why im saying this is cos most people go to school to gain “Biology and Chemistry” and not gain KNOWLEDGE which is the most important…

    We post about land disputes cos we heard stories… Lets just pray the ones who lost thier lives will Rest In Peace rather than run our mouths like tap water while the Leaders are there Living Large… How many Local Govt Chairmen in this country will come out and say there children school in this NIGERIA….NONE i tell ya’ll…Talkless of Governors and Other Leaders.

    They fly there children OVERSEAS to safety then cos problems that we might all send ourselfs to the grave… and that we go about doing.. Killing in diff Styles ( Bombing, Hanging, Burning, Beheading ) The list goes on….ITS a SHAME to my COUNTRY Nigeria…
