The highly-publicized cease fire agreement between the Federal Government and Boko Haram doesn’t seem to be working, as the insurgents continue to kill, abduct, and destroy the lives of innocent Nigerians.

Vanguard reports that the terrorists yesterday attacked Mubi, the second biggest town and main commercial hub of Adamawa State.

Soldiers and hundreds of residents are said to have fled the town in the midst of the attacks.

Joshua Chinasa, one of the residents who fled told reporters:

We are in serious trouble as these boys (Boko Haram) have taken over our towns, splitting in groups with some Boko Haram members advancing towards Mararraban Mubi and Vintim, the home town of Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh, giving Nigerian troops a hot chase. Mubi has now become a ghost of itself as people in their hundreds are fleeing for their lives. Even here in Maiha, we saw military vehicles zooming off towards Yola, the state capital.”
Also, Ahmad Sajoh, the spokesperson to former Adamawa governor, Murtala Nyako, disclosed that his daughter was missing following the attack.

“I got a call from my daughter who is a 200 level student of Adamawa State University, Mubi. She was hysterical. I was in Abuja for a meeting, but her information forced me to head back to Yola immediately. She told me that the insurgents were approaching the town which is the second largest in Adamawa State. I ordered her to leave the hostel and join her cousins to escape the town. I called my father who confirmed the story.

By the time I arrived Yola airport, the town had fallen to the insurgents. My parents are trapped while my daughter and her cousins are missing,” he said.

Bala James Ngillari, the state governor, has urged the people of the state, to remain calm as “security agents were on top of the situation.”

    In the wake of announcement of the failed ceasefire, most Nigerians said the exercise is a hoax. These attacks by Boko Haram proves them right; making the military lose composure. The FG should not see the BH as humans but as demonic blood-suckers who should be fought with the zeal used on the them a month or two ago. May God deliver Nigeria.

    This cease case fire was a deceit from anti government.
    The so called cease fire was for BOKO HARAM to settle down for more strength and to bring their imported arms from chad and commorou
    FED GOVERNMENT ARMY should have strike back with a massive attack against boko harams
    theirs are more external and military sabotage and our , etc Armories.

    Either you take it or you leave it the truth of the matter is that No harm, disaster or any problems in the country exceeding 24-48 hours without putting an end to it is at the interest and benefits of the federal government, so let us be realistic n don’t be sentimental Federal Government is the Boko Haram and Boko Haram is the Federal Government. Don’t let us deceive ourselves is Nigerian government that gave them free hands to operate including the presidency

    It is inevitable that we shall all give account of our deeds in the hereafter when we won’t be able to right our wrongs.
    I see all these as a plot to stain Islam . Islam encourages the seeking of Knowledge: ‘Seek knowledge even if it means going to China’
    ‘Knowledge’ was generalised in this context. Besides,there is no compulsion in religion according to the Holy Quran.
