The explosions which happened within minutes of each other suggesting the kind of co-ordinated attacks that have come to be the trademark of the Islamist sect, Boko Haram, before an intensive military campaign put a lid on their activities.

The blasts were reported at Bumdum,Customs area and Gamboru parts of the city but there was no immediate report of any casualty.

It would be recalled that at yesterday’s town hall meeting with Borno Elders Forum, President Goodluck Jonathan urged stated that he will order the soldiers of the JTF back to the barracks on the condition that the elders sign an undertaking that there will no more be any form of attacks in the north eastern town which has been the epicentre of Boko Haram activities.

    As Jonathan is calling on elders of Borno to sign an agreement for the withdrawal of soldiers I, on my part, am calling on Jonathan to forget about our votes. His visit was not with any good intention except to counter-challenge that of opposition governors. We will not vote him so he should look for votes elsewhere. Any move or action to organize rigging in our area Boko Haram will be a child at play. His soldiers and police cannot save his criminal action of rigging.

    This visit of mr president to borno and yobe state, what is it bringing to d table in respect of insecurity in those area he visited, if not to tell anybody who cares to listen that whatever APC can do they can equally do as well, where was he all dis while before APC visited d area, we should try to shy away frm politcising every sensitive things in this country. May peace rain in d area. By d time we do away wit sentiment and every body free from corruption, Nigeria would be a better place to live. Corruption is d only problem we have in Nigeria and our govt has not shown any political will to tackle it.

    What makes a leader different from a follower is not only the position the former occupies but also the supposed force that his utterances possess. It is the responsibility of the follower, on the other hand , to say ‘yes’ to any progressive order. Therefore, if I were a leader of primary school pupils and/but they didn’t listen to me, before shame envelopes me, I would resign. A failing leader may resign before he is said to be synonymous with failure. You are welcome Mr. President.

    Today a group of terrorist & cold blooded
    murderers announced 2 d world that they’ve
    killed all 7 of their hostages. The group which is
    referred 2 as ‘ansaru’ for short claims it’s goal is
    to protect muslims in black africa. I ask, how
    they intend 2 do dis by killing some innocent
    expatriate who left d comfort of their well devt
    land 2 execute a legitimate job in northern
    nigeria? How is Islam a religion of ‘Peace’, wen
    all acts of terrorism & violence all over d world is
    associated wit Islam? They go by all sorts of
    names ‘Alquaida’ Taliban’ Boko Haram’ Ansaru’
    etc… all these Islamic organisations have a clear
    objective, they’re oppose to growth &
    development, peace & progress, they are
    vampires and blood suckers. How can anybody
    convince a sane and reasonable person that
    Islam stands 4 peace wen it’s footprints &
    trademarks of violence & terror continue to stare
    us daily on d face? how can u say that Islam
    means well for me wen all it does is 2 seek 2
    terminate my life & those of my kind? Islam is no
    religion, It is a Cult, a cult that survives on
    human blood & only thrives wen non members
    suffer from its rain of terror. Alas! ‘He that kills
    by d sword shall surely die by d sword’.

    hmmmmm, i kept askin the same question over and over. Is Islam a religion of peace or Violence?? I guess Boko Haram and other Islamic sect answer it all. Our Lord Jesus Christ will fight for us and we will hold unto our peace.

    This country will be in trouble if any of the interested parties rig the election.Mind u,Boko haram is also an interested party.And now we also have the ND militants.The remedy will be for Inec to conduct a free and fair election so that if anyone loses,he will accept it in good faith or so we hope!

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
