Another Fulani herdsmen attack left at least 81 people dead in Benue state . A police spokesman, Moses Yamu confirmed the killings but said the affected communities had returned to normal. Nigerians haven’t returned to normal because everyone is talking about it on social media and have continued to lament the silence of the Buhari-led federal government.
INFORMATION NIGERIA brings you some of the best reactions.
Some users have said that President Buhari’s silence means he supports the actions of the Fulani herdsmen while others say the silence is a major blow to our democracy and a clear sign that our leaders do not care about the lives of Nigerians.
Dear Twitter Warriors….Some things GEJ was accused of are repeating themselves under Buhari’s watch…#BenueMassacre

The deafening silence on #BenueMassacre is a blow to our democracy and a shame on the leadership of Nigeria.

These are really hard times. My heart & prayers are with the families of #BenueMassacre. This is an act of terrorism and we must condemn it!

So we are just going to pretend like these Fulani herdsmen attacks are not going on? Why have we become hostile to ourselves? Fix it Jesus

HOW CAN YOU TELL ME THAT FULANI HERDSMEN ARE RAVAGING AN ENTIRE REGION AND THE ENTIRE DEFENCE SYSTEM IS MUTE… PRESIDENT IS SILENT HOW?

The body language of the president is technically supporting injustice. Till date, he is yet to condemn Fulani Herdsmen in strong terms
