    Odiegwu. Boko Haram is no longer pretending to be just extremists. By going directly against politicians, they are behaving like the military arm of a political group. All will be revealed soon.

    According to the news the suicide bomber was targeting Sabo Garbu.If that’s the case the suicide bomber would have detonated the bomb when he was in sight. I am sorry if this statement might offend anyone and I hope it get’s published because Bella naija seems to be afraid of the truth sometimes but in my opinion this is just PDP wasting innocent lives to make APC look bad and it is really very sad and a very desperate and devilish plot. May the souls of the departed rest in peace.
