    But Boko Haram was no longer controlling any area as at end of December according to President Buhari. So where’s this one coming from?

    • JSA1

      DON’T BE CYNICAL.

      • Otile

        Why can’t he be cynical? Did Imam Mohamed not brag that Boko Haram was no longer controlling any area as at end of December?

    • shola

      They are no more INSURGENTS but TERRORISTS because they have no more place to hide. That is the danger any country is facing. It is like you fighting an image. This is more than a mirage.

    • e_orpheus

      You could in the least shake your head in disgust that despite the death and destruction perpetrated so far, human beings like you and I are unconscionable enough to still run an open market where terrorists can purchase weapons and accessories to continue to cause havoc.
      ‘Boko Haram market’ does not imply territory annexed by them, but some shady parchment of barren land where a subhuman mentality prevails amongst seemingly regular citizens.
      Be guided.

      • Otile

        So you know so much about Boko Haram activities. Omo, o ga oo.

        • Gugurus Ekpa

          Otile,

          • Otile

            Diaper sniffer, go back to Sambisa forest. Hopeless Islamist.

          • Gugurus Ekpa

            Otile,

            Is “Sambisa Forest” brand of diapers what you are seeking? Is the current brand not soaking your wee wee well enough?

          • Gugurus Ekpa

            You are talking like a crazy baby again. When do you want me to change your soaked diapers?

          • Otile

            Diaper sniffer,

            For a blood-sucking Islamist like you everything sounds like a crazy baby, especially when you ponder on soaked diapers. Pathetic,

          • Gugurus Ekpa

            Otile,

            Those diapers of yours are rally soaked, right? So, when do you want me to change them for you?

            Otile,

            When were you planning to inform me that your size 3 diapers are really really soaked?

  • JSA1

    THIS IS A WONDERFUL PERFORMANCE. BRAVO TO THE MILITARY INTELLIGENCE AND ALL OTHER SECURITY FORCES. GOD WILL BLESS YOU ALL!

  • MushinSpeaks

    Who says we are not winning the way against insurgency? CHANGE is here pls! Bravo to the armed forces.

  • C3kwe

    I thought Liar Mohammed said they are hungry. They can’t even feed themselves in this market. Comical Ali doing what he does best, propaganda.

  • shola

    ““The unprecedented feat was achieved through the renewed cooperation and
    support of the public who provide timely information to the troops.”
    That is the result of constant advertisement in the media. The mass must be kept aware of the danger if they don’t blow the whistle. Nigerian radios need only batteries to reach the mass any time.

  • westernrollings

    Timely informations,positive media projection and orientation of the locals through all the media avenue,mostly in local languages will help the Nigeria’s armed forces to sustained the momentum against the insurgent.which will enhance total wipe out of the sect.

  • REDEEM

    Very soon they will all be released by Buhari and Nigerians will be told it was a mistake again–That those arrested are from the ECOWAS region—But when Niger Deltans are nabbed————-it becomes a different story–

  • Gugurus Ekpa

    Imagine of Jonathan had been given a chance to rule Nigeria for another 4 years? By now, Nigeria would have lost three states to Boko Haram given the extensive network of operations Boko Haram had developed around the fringes of the states of concern. Thank God for saving Nigeria from Jonathan and Boko haram.

    • Otile

      Useless comment of a diaper sniffer. What did Yar’Adua do about Boko Haram? How much more is the Naira going to depreciate over the Dollar. Ungrateful parasites.

      • Gugurus Ekpa

        Otile,

        Do you want daddy to spank you? Why are you becoming a naughty boy?

      • musa aliyu

        Na dollar be your own headache? We say we no wan toothpick again. Use our naira and buy garri in the south and carry it to the hungry north, then pick tomatoes to the south. That will fetch you more naira. Simple economics. Let the dollar keep rising to eternity.

  • MushinSpeaks

    Bravo to our Nigerian Army for this gallant move and zeal in ending insurgency. #CHANGE

  • musa aliyu

    Hip hip hip, hooray!!! to our army. May Allah strengthen your resolve
