    Boko haram people are very they want to kill all the christains or do they want nigeria to become islam country alone.hoko haram people wil all die and go to hell. I don tell my fellow igbos in the northern and non igbos wey be christains to leave hausa land and return to their states before they all die in the north.but my fellow igbos are somehow foolish but upon say boko haram dey bomb our people in the northern state,our people still dey north.what suprises me most is if u come to Eastern states u will never see any house own by an hausa man.the highest poperity own by hausa men living in Eastern states are Mats and small Radios.them go dey 10 men dey live for one store because them wise if anything happen them go run for dear lives.but my fellow igbos go go northern state go build houses and stores and buy lands after boko haram people go bomb them. Igbos and non igbos leaves northern states alone for hausas and boko haram make una go back to una state and delevop una state.

    The time ve come when Christian ought and should defend their member form boko haram attacks, only fools will say that Christians are not the main target. Tell me the numbers of muslins that ve died while at their place of worship n i will show u countless friends who ve lost their love once . No body or group ve the monopoly of violence, yes Christian is a religion of peace but we should not forget that the same Christians fought many battles in the old testament. It is right time and the time is near since our society is gradually turning into the survival of the fittest, we might be force to take it to their doors steps, cos is obvious so long as we keep running away today, we shall do the same tomorrow, lets put a stop to aid our children’ future. We are waiting for our Christian leaders to do something or else they might not be able to hold us back when we retaliate.

    It is clear that these boko haram are against xitians, but u know what? U can’t touch xtians and go free, their families will suffer for it, their children children will suffer for it. No wonder, when go to the streets, u will see them begging for food, u will see them cripple everywhere. They will suffer and suffer untill they confess what they have done. Wicked pple with wicked religion. God bless christians, christian for life.
