    They house cattles in west world , they harvest food to bring for the cattles , no farmer in Europe allows its cattle to start going to other peoples land to graze . In japan the cattles stays in the owners farm and cattle house . Why Nigeria cattles travels from Nigeria to congo to look for food , looking for problems and troubles every where . They should all cattle owners let them back to there states , bring Japan’s farmers or European farmers to educate them . This how it works . Govt provide them with funds to start building cattle houses and teach them how to harvest cattle foods .

    Will you stop the incesant and annoying bleeting about the threats that are common in all lands where there is so much gap between the rich and poor? Get on with detection and prevention of crimes and stop the excuses. By all means alert the leadership of your professional problems, but why tell us when you must know that such information is of little use to the citizen. Remember that some of these criminals cannot read anyhow, so why go to print with this nonsense?
