    Boko haram who claim to install sharia, are behaving this way? Are they less than armed robbers? yet senators are hiding & supporting them. If for instance they get sharia installed, is this how is been practiced? Is it not the same sharia that amputates people that steals, yet the proponent of sharia are armed robbers? Walahi! They can’t win this war. Infact, they’ve lost battle long time ago. Bcos they are useless, they are killing the people that should be useful to the society all bcos they envy their position which they can never attain. The mescrants & robbers are recruited into boko haram, from shekau to the least among them. They are society failures recruited by as political thugs which now evolves into boko haram. At least, man must wak. Zannaoo! Ali Modu Sheriffoo! Ndumeooo!
