      Can you pls put a lid on it? You think Boko haram is after Christians? They don’t care if you worship a tree stump or if you are Muslim.They are after everyone who doesn’t believe in their ideology. My family is in maiduguri. Do you know the fear everyone lives in? Of all their vicious murders, Boko harams Christian casualty can’t be more than 10/20% . Do you know how many family and friends we have personally lost in this mad crusade.?You think the thousands they kill every week are only Christians? We all share a common enemy. So because the attack is on Sunday it has to do with people going to church? For Gods sake wake up. BH will kill anyone and everyone in a mosque or church or market. I pray they are all brought to a swift and painful end. Ameen.

    At a time like this, I miss OBJ.

    We need to take God out of this. The federal government has to use its hands and heads to annihilate Boko Haram. Fire for fire. Anything short of that is a dereliction of duty.

    I weep for my country Nigeria. Even while I am far away in the United States, there’s still this fear that grips me about Nigeria and the recent situation of things. I am of the strong opinion that this recent government has failed, regardless of whoever is causing this terrorism thing. The good roads, revamping the agricultural sector, building railway lines and refurbishing our airports makes no sense if the lives and properties of our ordinary citizen is constantly at risk.
