Where are doing BIG BROTHER Africa when insurgency is now other of the day in the north east, shame on Buhari and failed service chiefs To do what? 😂😂😂😂😂 Misplaced priority why not kastina abi wich kind walah bdis Fire the service chiefs now

The earlier you guys know there is nothing like Boko haram better for everyone. That shit is created by the Northerners for money laundering. There is more to this mission... Guinea Bissau, open your eyes before you venture into terrorism fighting that never sees an end To help them bring in the Fulani of that part of the world to Nigeria. These guys are playing 4 dimensional chest. Buhari knew what he was doing when he called for colonies and open the country to immigrants (Fulanis) Nigerians should keep sleeping.

It will only take a month to dislodge and stop boko haram only if this soldiers can be deployed to the north east. They keep jeopardising the lives of our soldiers. It makes no sense to me. It makes me wonder if our politicians are really interested in the us or our resources. Stupid people... They are scared of boko haram... Even our own soldiers are leaving the country...
