  3. It is a shame that you housa fulani and Yeruba media are killing us igbo people again.
    U out buhari did not drop any boomb in b the northern part of the country where the boko haram are killing people every day.

    Get ready to go ICC COURT VERY SOON WHEN I FINISH YOUR EVIL WORK

  4. Dis Buhari is a confused man. Am angry, very angry. He calls boko Haram his disgruntled brothers while my south-south brothers are militants. God will judge him. Comment:

  5. South South militant are his fellow brothers as well. GEJ paid militant for their criminal act and Buhari paid soldiers to wipe out BH. If we the community of Borno should see any BH in the town or nearby we will finish him up or call on the security personnel to do their job. Are you doing thesame to ur militants or you are a baby factory product like them.

  6. Mr. President should liberate the common men, women and children from boko haram first be4 fighting for the elites.

  7. This shows that the President does not know the geography of the creek. the pipelines are not located in residential areas but in the swamps and forests. I doubt that bombing riverine communities can stop vandalisation or is this genocide? Dialogue is the answer dear President. Anything to the contrary is bad advice to compound this problem
