  1. Reading write ups like this gives me extreme mixed feelings, are we to applaud that 50 suspects were killed or one of the suspects who was involved in the wuse bombing was shot dead? what is the aim of these raids, is it to annihilate all suspect before investigations are carried out? are the killings of suspects a bid to shut them up from disclosing who the sponsors are? what is the primary aim of these raids and police band for crying out loud, is it for practice target of getting to the bottom of this crisis by capturing and interrogating suspects to find out details of who their sponsors are? killing off mere messengers is only covering and shielding the major players. What are we doing for God’s sake. you do not destroy weeds by trimming the leaves, you uproot them… do your freaking jobs and get to the bottom of this by capturing or infiltrating this orchestrated misfits.

  2. Believing me with time Boko Haram will start committing suicide within themselves I had the vision. They will all die by killing themselves or God will be exposing their target they will all get caught one by one till they vanish.

  3. They are just Deceiving the masses, how do u expect this to stop when the leaders are making millions set aside to tackle insecurity problem in the country. Oh! Lord please save us from this cruel world, please come to our rescue in Jesus holy name.

  4. Suspect died? Damn it! Don’t feed us with that.. Instead , “he was murdered” .. Ah think we will understand that better.. N;B: no matter the amount of murder act committed 2 cover up those behind this terrorism, nothing is ever hidden under the sun.. Not even caves. Una cup don dey full gradually.. God bless Nigeria
