  1. These soldiers are nothing but bloody killers. Why can’t they kills boko haram instead of unleasing dangers on innocent civilians.
    If you want to stop a driver, why not shoot the tire instead of aiming directly on the passengers.

  2. The stupid driver is to blame, the militry was stopping him and he refused while he quite knew that the zone was under the treat of Boko people, in any danger zone, any misbehaviour is a suspect,although the army should have traget the tyers, but it pains me that the innocent student becomes the victim, May the God Lord remember you in the last day AMEN.
