  1. UN and other intl organisations like red cross to stay away from that dangerous zone and stop granting millions in aid package to them and stop endangering peoples lives.just like suspending youth service posting to such hostile areas.wonder why the dullard in aso rock will declare state of emergency on those regions and stop the senseless massacre.billions has been spent and soldiers not motivated to do a good job but using yeye aliases like python dance for political gains.boko haram and herdsmen are winnable with good strategy an dbetter strike force rather than wuruwuru approach
