  39. Each passing day comes with different sad stories regarding the Book Haram menace in Nigeria but it seems the Nigeria government is not doing anything helpful to help curb this everyday tragedy. May the souls of the dead find rest in the blossom of the Lord

  40. The incessant attack of book haram indulgence, is becoming too rampant, I taught the government said that, they have technically defeated them

  41. This is getting scaring day by day, if the Boko Haram were able to defeat the military it means we are nothing before them.

  42. sometimes I wonder if the soldiers were sleeping when they invade their colony, rest in perfect peace soldiers. your reward is in heaven for you have your country.

  43. It’s high time Nigeria wake up and map out strategies that will be a formidable force. Imagine that, for me it an insolace that Biko Haram penetrated and even succeed to kill three soldiers ,it’s uncalled for!

  44. How can Boko Haram attack the military and what we hear is 3 soldiers dead instead of Tue Book Haram I wonder the kind of force we have this days….may there gentle soul reast in peace

  45. Book haram attacking the military, it is unbecoming. Fed government should do something about it before it spreads out.

  46. Nigerian government should take every needful action to control the attack of bokoharam. To save our soldiers
