    BN why are you not reporting the reel story. They say this estate is own by Buhari. Did he declare it as his asset. All you APC supporters the truth must come out. Where is CCT?

      It happened in Buhari Estate,Damaturu and about 16 people died. Sad!!
      My question is,in an estate????? reserved for residence????

      Shame on people who nurtured BH since …. and used it to oppress people. Woe unto their sympathizers.

      These are not chickens you kill daily!!!
      Northern leaders please wake up and do something!!!!Not just Buhari but every leader and condemn this trend. It takes months to conceive,born and train and it takes these dogs seconds to blast humans..

      My dear Kadara and her people stop the Northern /Southern dichotomy and face these people squarely. Something they hear/listen to, must be wrong-someone must be brainwashing them. How come they cant be tamed???

      I believe only a mad mans relative can best handle it.

      Trust me i am not impressed by the Northern leaders who fanned this violence by their silence, indifference and speech

    Dear Nigerian army stop fighting a coventional war against terrorists. Dear PMB, advisers and sycophants there is a country called Israel that has a little experience fighting these things where haven’t we paid them a visit? Why is our foreign policy still geared towards the declining West?

    Best wishes.

      Israel? When Buhari openly recognised Palestine as a state. Doubt we would have any help from them anytime soon. Our best bet maybe Russia then again that’s a tricky one. My dear we will survive as we can

      I cringed at that, what does Palestine offer us?? Israel isn’t just a military power but an agricultural powerhouse too, why risk alienating them………..over Palestine!!

    @puffpuff. Don’t display your ignorance. The estate is called buhari estate doesn’t mean the president owns it. I’ll advice you use spell check too. Critical reasoning

    Suddenly, the President is no longer to be blamed for insurgency in the country.
    I hope this ends soon. Nigeria deserves better.
