  • It is fast turning into a funny world of the fight against Boko Haram, isn’t it? While the real and authentic Nigerian army is clearing the BK insurgents from one location, the other part of the Nigerian army that is aligned and sponsor of the insurgents with tactic support by the Northern leaders is granting the captured ones amnesty in droves even while the bombs are going off all over the place. Are we still sticking to the December end of all insurgency in Northern Nigeria or have the sponsors told us something different? We are holding our breaths for the answer.

    NIgerian Army will win the war against boko haram but the country will not win the fight against boko haram. Until every child in the north of the country (and also every where) is sent to school there will continue to be lone bombing. For that one, war campaign cannot stop it!
