    This is not the first time the Nigerian army has come out to say Shekau has been injured or killed. I don’t know what to believe anymore.

    With every passing day, it gets more obvious that we cannot believe anything that comes from the Nigerian army. Haven’t they told us they killed this man before?! Sheesh!!!

    ‘Fatal’ means leading to death. So is he alive or dead? Please correct your grammatical error, it is misleading.

    The bitter truth is that even if the he-goat dies, there will still be Boko Haram unfortunately. There are now two factions of the group. So unless they strike all the bastards down, nothing will change. God is our strength. May the end of this ordeal be a glorious one for those girls, even the kidnapped boys too and the whole of Nigeria IJN Amen.
