    While the lazy python owned by BUHARI AND Buratai is busy dancing and killing unarmed Igbos in the SE, Nigerians are being killed in droves in the NE where the python is supposed to be dancing to the tunes of the armed Boko-haram who are busy killing Nigerians in droves and burning villages.

    Buratai’s priority is to keep committing crimes against humanity in the SE instead of protecting the Nigerian public from an armed insurgence which has operated for a decade in the NE.

    Imam Abubakar Shekau, Allah ya gafata mallam. Imam, you are indeed a strong leader and always a truthful man. You told the Nigerian army to leave killing Igbo civilians alone and you dared them to do battle with your gallant boys, but the scumbags ran away to the East to do snake dance and brag about killing civilians. Shame on Buhari and his jack-booted thugs. Imam Shekau, Allah ya yi zamani, Allah ya ba ka lafia, dukan dunia sun ce Amin.
