  1. I pity the old man and still thank God on the other hand. My happiness is that this category of scenerio is what will lay bare the source and sponsors of boko haram. No one can burry the truth and go free. Allah yin hakuri! God bless Nigeria!

  2. What a pity. Is time now for all Muslims all over the world to come together to call these Boko Haram, ISIS, AL-SHABA, ALKEADA and others for discipline. Sadly they are killing but their own people and disturbing the peace of the world. They want to wipe out their own people. They behave like some sorts of occult groups.
