      Insha Alla, some well meaning military officers will see him in London and know he is back to his comfort zone, then they relieve him of this hard work, it is above his mental and physical capacity.

    Shameless wicked lieing, old, blood shedding, brain dead, president. You will suffer for all this blood sucking and massacre. Heavens will punish you.

    He looks like a dead fish. I am sure the blood of the innocent he is shedding giving him terrible nightmares. Those innocent blood will hunt you till you die man. Yo will never sleep well again forever. Man. Devil you are man. Killing your own people. Young defenseless boys. You will die miserably.
