The Nigerian Army has been on fire lately!

Earlier this week, it was reported that they rescued 293 females. And now, Yahoo News is reporting that 160 additional individuals have been rescued from Sambisa Forest.

Army spokesman Sani Usman, announced the news: “We are still trying to compute the actual number of those rescued. But tentatively there are about 60 women of various ages and around 100 children,” he said.

    Buhari won the election, Girls are miraculously released. APC thanks for releasing our girls after making Jonathan Govt look bad so you can be in power. All of a sudden the girls have surfaced……This is obviously a plot!!

    Sugar, more like Jonathan is trying to cover his tracks so that there will be nobody to confess how he recruited BH to convince Nigerians that the Northerners want to make his administration ungovernable.

    Someone told me they will crush BH before they leave office May 29th as they cant afford Shekau to be captured alive. The cankerworm that will be exposed go fit break the country.

    How else can you explain continous refusal of the president and top army officials to give final go-ahead to our force to enter towns and crush BH all these years? Abi you no dey read/hear news?

    Why did he just give go ahead to enter Sambisa now? Why wait till quarter to when his tenure will end before giving the go-ahead?

    Who rescued the people? is it Buhari or Nigeria Army go rescue them? Abi who is in charge of this same armed as of today? Is it Buhari that gave the order for the invasion of Sambisa?

    Please peeps, don’t be so beclouded by ethnicity that you are blind, deaf to reasoning.

    Its a pity Buhari takes all the glory instead of our brave men in uniforms who are risking their lives to see that Nigeria’s intergrity is protected. Imagine who they will feel when they come across senseless comments like this.

    Some people remain ignorant even when the truth is staring them right in the face.
    How do some people have the energy to come up with these conspiracy theories?
    Its getting boring.
