Understanding the Menace: BOKO HARAM

Published

on

I stumbled upon a blog which allegedly belongs to a member of the Boko haram, the authenticity of www.yusufislamicbrothers.blogspot.com however I am yet to confirm but by reading its contents,it was not so difficult to jump into that conclusion.

It however got me thinking. I read in a broadcast message that the leader of the Boko Haram sect has rejected President Jonathan’s outstretched arm of peace and dialogue. I then ask myself “what does he want?”.

The National Security adviser said the other day on national tv that Boko Haram would soon run out of suicide bombers, but I say what if they do not and if they eventually do,how much damage would have already been caused. As a way of tackling the problem from its root,have we asked ourselves “WHAT MAKES A PERSON decide to be a SUICIDE BOMBER or TERRORIST? “.

I once believed the answer to this question was illiteracy or a poverty stricken mentality when all hope of survival is lost. History, however tells us different because Bin Ladin and our very own Abdumutallab are from wealthy families,moreso they attended some of the best schools too.

It is believed that a coward cannot commit suicide because the act of taking one’s life in the first place is an act of bravery. So in the normal sense of the word neither are they cowards,rather they are dedicated and devoted believers in their cause, the justification of such cause however is another matter and not the issue at hand at this moment.

Over the years, scores of Boko Haram members have been killed by security operatives but they have not been dwindling in numbers rather they seem to be growing and expanding. The truth is no matter how many boko haram members are killed, others would rise up in their stead.

What then must we do,to uproot Boko Haram? Kindly Leave comments

    All I know is that evil things can never take a permanent lead over good deeds.

    since their leaders are known and have been invited for discussion but they refused, it means that they are humans and not spirits. what need to be done is to take decisive action to eliminate them and their sponsors. no life is more important than the other. Can Nigerian youth unite and carry out revolution in this country irrespective of whose ox is in question?

    To my own perspective i can see that this so call Boko Haram they have something boring their mind because i don’t think that someone can engage in killing a human being like him if thier is no tangible reason, what i will say is that the Northerner leaders should try to invite the Boko Haram Leader and ask him why are they doing such evil thing and what they want.

    Last week, the Chief of Armed Staff complained that they can’t succeed in destroying dis BOKO HARAMS if d whole nation would not reject them. My contribution is dat d muslims should open their armpits so that we know these BOKO HARAM members in their midst and eliminate them.

    I don’t think that government start real fight with those terrorist yet. So how i think that they are going to dwindle ? All what i knew is that; government’s security ongoing, taking suspecting members of Boko Haram. Who knows maybe the suspecting were not the real Boko Haram, the real one are standoff !!!

    As for me i think security should be pepped up,and laws should be passed just lyk dat of same-sex marriages,as to the penalty invovled if caught. Once that is done,you’ll put the BH and their members at a catche 22 situation.

    my opinion on dis matter “boko haram” can be easily solve if only they will give power to a group of people within their locality( vigilante). Force can’t solve d matter bcos nobody is ready 2 die & they all have family. Dis vigilante knows boko haram hidings & they have charms. Afta dat the govt shud also repent of their corrupt, selfish, self-centered, greedy practice, bcos that is what is fueling dis nefarious behaviour of boko haram.

    if boko haram is real, d only solution is to reverse what government have done for them, which is difficult. The government start the game by killing them the way they like.

    i wonder why people and d government are blaming the boko haram. My fellow nigerians dont forget, no any constittution in the world that says when boko haram are arrested to be kill recklessly by the force. Where are d human rights, where are d criminal court. And what they are saying about constitution is true both in the hoy books. And coruption is around. Anyway i dont support boko haram for he killing of innocent lives and goverment sholed find he solution to ths crisis.

    First and foremost, the fact that this boko haram sect are being sponsored by some highly influential and wealthy northern politicians cannot be overemphasised. This sect are after nothing but GEJ’s government. It should be recalled that OBJ engaged in a political conflict with his vice during the days of no third term in office for OBJ and the self centred OBJ tackled his vice against running for presidential post. In this regard, some highly concerned northern politicians are behind this scenarios.

Avoid These Nigerians Food To Burn Stubborn Belly Fat (Video)

Published

on

Being overweight or obese can be detrimental to your health. It is not advisable to have excess fat in the abdominal cavity because it can lead to some health issues. Getting your dream body will not be easy and you need to make some sacrifices to your diet. You will also need to turn a blind eye to some fatty foods.

If you’re ready to get rid of the belly fat, then stay put as Information Nigeria brings you some important tips that will help.

1. Avoid sugar and carbonated drinks

Did you know that consuming sugary substances like coke, fanta can lead to weight gain and a number of health problems like high blood pressure?. This is due to the high fructose content found in added sugars. Taking sugar-filled drinks may slow your metabolism and this in turn can make it harder for your body to burn fat. Fructose can only be metabolized by your liver. When you consume too much, you push your liver to its limit and it becomes overloaded, then it turns the fructose into fat and it ends up getting stored in your belly. To avoid putting yourself from risk, you should cut back on foods and drinks that contain huge amounts of sugar.

 

2. You also have to forgo junk foods like meat pie, cakes, rolls, candies, burgers, ice cream and cookies. You also need to do away with heavy foods like eba, akpu, pounded yam, rice among others. Switch up your eating habits and opt for a more balanced-diet if you want to burn your belly fat. Avoid consuming refined carbs like bread, pizza, potation chips etc. You should also stay away from processed and heavy foods because they contribute to stubborn belly fat. You should choose to eat proteinous foods like fish, eggs, and milk. starch contains fat, sugar and salt. They help a person feel fuller so you don’t end up looking for something to munch on after eating. It basically keeps hunger at bay.

3. Eat the right amount of fruits, vegetables, fibrous foods and whole grains – You can add vegetables, fruits and whole grains to your weight loss diet. They provide essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and other substances that are good for your body. Examples of fibre rich foods include; beans, broccoli, avocados, apples, oatmeal brown rice and whole grain bread.

4. Try to incorporate exercise into your daily or weekly routine – Exercise helps to speed up your metabolism and helps you shed weight. The bitter truth is that wearing just waist trainers and staying put in one position will not make you lose that stubborn belly fat. You should hit the gym.

5 Reduce alcohol intake – Excess intake of alcohol also leads to a host of health problems especially the build-up of fat in the belly area. Have you ever noticed that those who drink alcohol, especially men, often develop ‘pot-bellies’. Alcoholic drinks like beer provide your body with calories and very little nutrients. It can also increase your appetite. Replace the alcoholic drinks with water or alternate with low calorie, non-alcoholic beverages. Too much alcohol can cause liver damage and other serious health problems.

6. Try out apple cider vinegar – Apple cider vinegar is made in a two-step fermentation process. It is obtained from apples that have been crushed, distilled and fermented. Acetic acid is the main active component of apple cider vinegar. It is safe for consumption in small quantities and can be taken as a supplement. Do not also consume it straight from the bottle or in its pure form. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons to water before you drink. You can also add honey or lemon. It is best to drink it before your meals. Research shows it has many health benefits, such as lowering blood sugar levels.
