More soldiers were killed by Boko Haram since yesterday than people that died in France. We lost a tank that can do damage. WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?

Christopher O. Okagbare is gladly sharing that the president is traveling abroad again. This time to Tehran to attend a conference on gas exporting countries where he would sleep and miss meeting all over again. WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?

There is fire in Nigeria. We are losing the fight against Boko Haram. All the asinine talk of “soft target” being hit by Boko Haram, all the useless lies by that Lai Mohammed that “increased bombings show we are winning the war against Boko Haram”, are proving to be unadulterated idiocy. SO, WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?

For the Twin Tower bombing, America took out Iran and Afghanistan. France have brought death from the skies on ISIS since the Paris attacks. In Nigeria, those days if you slap a policeman, you will wish you did not have a hand. If you slapped an army officer, you will wish to go back into your mother’s womb. Today at least 105 soldiers are missing (or dead) and Buhari’s reaction is what?! HE IS GOING TO TEHRAN TO DO A MINISTER’S JOB as he is also Petroleum Minister.

Even a stone has not be thrown at Boko Haram since the massacre. The army has not even spat or peed in their direction. I doubt if they have even hissed. The silence and inaction is CRIMINAL and sadly, sadly, sadly Nigerians will simply bury their sons, fathers, brothers, uncles, cousins, husbands and wait for the next massacre.

Papers are more interested in phantasmagorical fight against corruption and a cancer-stricken Diezani than to question…em… awake from slumber and question their president. Aside my friends at The Trent and my online allies, the whole nation is silent.

Should not our planes be dropping bombs in suspected strongholds like a fisherman drops his trousers and drops poopoo into the river? Should not the skies be red right now in REPRISAL attacks? Should we not at least sate our anger with news of their devastation? Is it only Cross River that Buhari can send planes to bomb? Is it only peaceful Biafra agitators that can be shot at?

The nation is losing the war on terror. Our soldiers are dying like flies sprayed with Sheltox.

And Buhari is going to a ministers’, let me say it again, MINISTERS – a meeting for ministers, not presidents… MINISTERS’ meeting in Iran.

He has a clear bias for his people of the Niger Delta and he believes the Nigerian system – justice, social, economic – is rigged against his people. So he became a social and political commentator to highlight this injustice. Connect with him on Facebook
