“People who are saying that I am talking too much should give me justice and I will keep quiet.
“These people are not just grazing but are coming to take over our land. And they want me to keep quiet. How can I keep quiet?
“As long as there is no justice, I will continue to shout, talk and sing. Benue remains the food basket of the nation. This is happening at a time the farmers are harvesting their crops. We look forward that the resolution of the Senate would be implemented. These people are not just grazing but are coming to take over our land.”
