Boko Haram Confirms Shekau's Death, Denounces ISWAP

Terrorists loyal to Abubakar Shekau's Jama’atu Ahlussunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad (JAS), otherwise known as Boko Haram, yesterday confirmed his death.

This is the worse mistake we can encourage in our region. Destroying developmental infrastructure is the greatest destruction a people can bring to themselves. The greatest disservice we are doing to ourselves as a people is ceding common sense to peddled narratives. The elite class stand naked as very shallow or insincere analysts of events. They are greedy, self serving people who don’t mind burning the house down to have their way

We are regaled with nepotism in appointments and it has become reality. A fact check may suggest otherwise even in the security architecture they like to cite. The narratives are cherry picked and can’t withstand basic scrutiny. But etched bias blocks scrutiny. The answer is not fargeteched on my view. They are interest groups, political, business and criminal and their interests are converged. Nigerians need to regain their abilities to reason critically and factually as these have been tossed to the wind as these groups anticipated.

saboteurs are roaming large. The strategy is clear. Create fear, divide the people into exploitable echo chambers, dilute anything that can be pointed to as an achievement, & magnify problems, especially in the media. And they are doing a good job of it. We should ask why? What do you mean by 'Unknown'? They've been arrested so they are known. The energy used in doing the damage could have made them rich if used on legal fruitful activities.

It's not unknown persons...its PDP And they will end up blaming the govt saying lack of job caused it. How can people be this wicked? Vandalizing what you are to benefit from. Ignorance at it peak Unknown Persons and the Unknown Gunmen in an Unknown Country. Govt will now use billions to repair it. What a wicked country is this? May be na these kidnappers since many people now prefer to use rail to bypass those dangerous areas.

A frustrated people! Sad but this will create more frustration!
