    Aiee, Boko Haram. I can’t understand how they are able to penetrate through the crowd to commit their crimes. And now they are attacking the nations security forces. That is sad and very serious. Lord have mercy please.

    I wonder what story a corrupt nigerian did not want this man to publish, hence ordering his execution and masking it as Boko Haram? They should look at all of the stories and sources that he was looking into. #ButThatsNoneOfMyBuisiness
