  1. Love your land and your people back. Fix the infrastructures for the masses that employed you as their leader. Serve your people with the kind of love you have for yourself and your children. People employed you to serve them, not for them to serve you. This applies to the military, police and other security personnel, you are not animals in uniform, stop behaving like rabid animals.
    Return stolen loot and create jobs for all. Nobody is asking for handouts, just a chance to survive through hard work from the jobs you have created, the infrastructures you have repaired and others you have made available.

  2. Dis Boko Harram re sometin else ooo…..Wat will dey gain from Killin dis Old Man??? Na wa ooo…….Father Lord……Pls Take Control…..Dis is gettin out of hand…..

  3. Since they have been killing christians through bombing and gun attacks in churches and in their homes in the north people like bayero never had anything to do or even say about it. More over the boko harams are there untrained and uncontrol born children all in the name of religion. Now the baton have changed hands. Bayero or any of them may not be that lucky next time. Kudos gunmen!

  4. Wetin be d problem of ds ruler wt bokoharams…may Allah save him if he is innocent about ds pple;but,neva ll he go free if there is skeleton in his cupboard.
