    Funny things never end in Nigeria. Ride on security since you’ve got a dummy or collaborator as a chief security of the notion you can make any type of claim. Now millions of naira will accrue into their accounts for a job well done. While the political jobber in Aso rock will earn the sympathy of some ignorant and ethno-religious savages. Open your eyes Nigerians!

      That’s an ancouth comment from you!Over the years the country was under the mie-rule of the inept and parochial Muslim Northern leadership,the country enjoyed absolute peace.Now that we have a popular and a democratically elected president from a different part of the country occupying an office you people see as your natural birthright,you’ve resorted to insurgency and all kind of de-stablization in a bid to intimidate and sack him from the office he’s legitimately occupying.You people have taken the rest of the country for a ride for too long.Now the game is over for you people!A total reshuffling of the cards and rebalancing of the equation for the sake of equity and fairness is now taking place.With this kind of hostile attitude from you people towards a popular and democratically elected government,it will take a very long time before the Muslim North can occupy that office again,if at all.That’s if the country remains one in the near future.You better wake up and adjust to the new reality.Days of your unchecked dominance and lording it over the rest of us is gone for good!

      We already know the mindset of you people–to boot GEJ out of office–that’s why you will continue in your usual ridiculous denials even in the face of hard evidence.All the evil machinations of you enemies of the nation will surely come to null.You people over your years in power,drove the country into a ditch that GEJ is working hard to get it out from.Stop using BH to frustrate his good effort!Embrace democracy,and not BH!

    It would’ve sound embarrassing, stupid, senseless & shameful fr a successful & highly honoured human being like our president 2 die in de hands of animals. I highly recommend de effort of de members of JTF. May God continue to help dem in de good work they are doing. But let de president change his orientation positively in dealing with dese animals. It’s time fr action & nt words. Shine ur eyes Mr president even with those u’re walking with. They may be ur enemies. May the almighty God continue to protect u Mr President.

    I would advise that JTF should monitor the online comments of some illiterate Notherners who always draw support for the heinous activities of Boko Haram even when their activities are glaringly clear . This bunch of ignoramus should be regarded as members of the sect & should also be treated as such. My respect goes to educated Notherners who know the grave consequences of the activities of this group to the Nothern society.

    Only yesterday 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’.

Oke

Oke

Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

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!”
