    Yes they must come back. It’s becoming crazy now. If jonathan cnt handle it he needs to step his ugly ass dwn. I am so angry, these girls must come back or hell will let loose. One simple mission and d gov cnt accomplish. I am so so tired and utterly disgusted and shameful to be called a Nigerian. In what country can someone carry out a crime for 6hrs and no authorities show up, a country with oil money for that matter. Jonathan better do something before something does him

    While our celebrities are interested in the latest fashion trend and designer labels while continuously announcing and updating pictures of flamboyant life style on Instagram, foreign artists are lending their voices. Everyone needs to step in to fight this inhuman act going on in our land. Those who have power in their voice should please use them. It is now or never. We are loosing it as a nation. My heart skips a beat whenever I try to imagine what those girls are going through.

    Jonathan is INCOMPETENT! POINT, BLANK, PERIOD! Such a shame that this weakling of a president has let our country be up there with the terrorist nations. And people want to pat him on the back for “adopting” his friends daughter. WHO CARES!!!!Bombings, kidnappings and yet no action. I am disgusted with how they let these Boko Haram folks grow wings like this!Our government is a big effing disgrace! I am DISGUSTED and ANGRY!!!

    I don’t get why some folks are knocking Nigerian celebs. Isn’t Damasus and others who have spoken up Nigerian? And haven’t Nigerian celebs been visiting and condoling the victims of the Boko Haram madness (for which ironically they have been accused on these same pages as “media whores”)?

      I agree “WHEN THE POOR HAVE NOTHING TO EAT ,THEY WiLL EAT THE RICH”. Nigeria is about to reach that point and when the shit hits the fan, it would be very bad. Everyone that has used their platform to glamorize stolen wealth will be affected!

    Jonathan is incompetent bla bla bla. Honestly I’m so sick of it! Nigeria is a problem on it’s own. Aren’t you the same idiots that were celebrating him a few months ago for the anti gay law? Over 200 girls are missing, 2 bomb blasts in less than 3 weeks within the same location. I mean, do you even understand the message that sends about the level of security your anti gay president has provided for you? Obviously, human life means less than nothing to your government. Nigeria needs help. Sadly, I think things will get so much worse before they get any better, if they eventually do

    I think as much as we’re all outraged about the Chibok incident, it will be utterly unfair to put the blame on Jonathan. There are several qsts to be asked those in Borno, namely the school authorities, the police command there, the Governor, the soldiers stationed there,etc. I heard the police engaged them in a 5hr gun duel. Now, did they sudden vanish from police sight? Why weren’t they followed into the forest, some foreign media estimates to be about the size of London. Now, hiding is terrorist tradecraft and in that kind of forest it becomes like seeking a needle in a haystack, especially as the very porous borders btw Nigeria and Niger, Chad and Cameroun are all within that area. We all hope that the foreign aid from US, UK, France and the general global outcry will make the job easier in locating the girls and make it harder for the Shekau fella to sell the girls as he threatened. And when search and rescue job is done, they should do us all a favour by castrating the Shekau fella for good.
