    A total of five suicide bombers, all male adults,

    Despite their crimes, I have nothing but sympathy for these men. I see them as victims of neglect: No proper education, no jobs, no future; they saw no value in themselves, so why not end it all and go with a big bang!

    The solutions to the boko haram problem are in the problems, namely, the lack of education, skills, and jobs; and hopelessness. This, I have been saying for many years.

      If you were not suffering from advanced mumudity you would have been rational enough to remember that the people who commited this crime should have names and be named. Does your “five suicide bombers, all male adults” equate to identity of the attackers by any known standards? Why can’t suicide bombers be named in Nigeria? Why is Buhari silent on this? Why is capturing Shekau dead or alive not on the agenda? …and you come here drawing lines in comment section as if we are playing here. Go back to the newsroom of PT where you belong and focus on writing real stories. Leave comment section for ideal regular visitors. Yeye Fowl!

        Welcome to the mumu club. But please help me to understand what you
        are trying to say here, comrade mumu?

        Comrade mumu started by calling me mumu because (if I understand the comrade’s commend well) I don’t know the names of the five bombers, but then comrade mumu asked:

        Why can’t suicide bombers be named in Nigeria?

        I might be a mumu but I know my logic. I can also console myself (hooray!) that there are mumu’s mumu, worst than I am, like comrade Domumugoes, here on this forum.

      Blame your lazy elements who interests are to steal oil from another region so God Almighty has destiny the entire north to remain in sickness and poverty now and forever.

    How can the development of the Niger Delta countries be envisioned by a man so deformed like Bokohari? This is arrant nonsense and quite provocative…that a man so dull, daft, dunce and incapacitated by every index of human assessment is proposition a developmental plan for a civilized country space – Niger Delta. Can the blind lead the sighted? We know in Nigeria anything is possible, but for Bokohari to claim to be initiating and talking about development of the Niger Delta countries is ridiculous and akin to circus show before a 13th century Roman audience.

    The union of Niger Delta countries reject Bokohari and his miserable policies. We advice him to develop his Northern peoples first and educate them on the value of life because they now see suicide bombings as a primary hubby. We also encourage Bokohari to come clean on the issue of Boko haram and their sponsors in govt. He should explain WHY suicide bombers, accomplices and their relatives are never named. Not even a single suicide bomber has been named by Bokohari’s APC government. Why?

    Are u a Niger Deltan? Do you live in the environmentally toxic and polluted Niger Delta countries, kidnap an oil worker today and shut down operations until head offices of the environmental terrorists are relocated to the Niger Delta. The crooked companies cannot pollute our dear erstwhile pristine ecosystem and run away from the pollution to other states (Lagos & Abuja). Niger Delta elders be warned. Take note.

    These suicide bombers are prepared for their mission by bomb experts from a location. The bombs are probably imported due to their sophistication.
    The bombers are from that state but they always remain anonymous.
    Sometimes the authorities get info and sit on it.
    This is a mismanaged war !!
