    Hailing a capture of a deserted camp.

      They deserted the camp because they were defeated. Those who made them to desert the camp captured the camp.

    • Arabakpura

      They should have occupied the camp now! No be them say they be Boko Haram? Abi, them don become Sule the deserter?

    We can see the benefit of non corruption and non looting of essential fund destined to equip our gallant army. With right equipment provision our Gallant Soldiers will always excell.

      Are you saying that by looting and buying himself good houses in Abuja and Dubai Thief Tinubu did nothing wrong?

      • Rick Eson

        As you can see from my post I did not go personal by attacking individual. All I am trying to say is if we had tame looting/ corruption, fight against Boko would have been concluded long ago.

        • Otile

          I hate the way you let wrongdoers off the hook by saying – I did no go personal by attacking individual or mistakes were made. If Buratai stole money and bought expensive houses in Abuja and Dubai, by all means let us have the courage to say so. To do otherwise is to be complicit in the crime.

      • aboki

        Otile please concentrate on your BIAFRA REPUBLIC agenda as Nigerians are solidly behind PMB on the final raid and capture of Sambisa Forest. The Xmas was celebrated with no blood letting as per your earlier wished. You can consult your Oracle on next sadistic wishes on Nigeria which would fail.
        Otile you are not a Christian despite your claimed I hoped you celebrated Xmas happily like other truely Christian NIGERIANS n World at large. Nigeria we hail thee

  • PolyGon2013

    Hail to our brave soldiers. Please do not relent your effort. It is time for intelligence work to prevail. The captured white guy should not be released. They are the ones including the Arabs that are sabotaging FG!

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      I agree with you friend, but if Sambisa has been captured, we have a duty to ask for the whereabouts of the remaining Chibok girls.

      Someone has a big explanation to provide.

      Where also are the bodies of Shekau or his alleged rival?

      I am going to check in Ahmad Salkida’s timeline on Twitter for alternative perspective.

      Compliments of the season to you.
