    Very good news. Good job by competent, galant soldiers. The next phase is not to relent but pile pressure on their hideouts and smoke them out. Then pile pressure on sponsors and financial using news media and security forces. Kudos to premium times for not given the enemies attacks prominence. The killers should be given news blackout. No retreat no surrender. YES WE CAN.

      Perhaps we should be provided much information by the military authorities. Nigerians are usually very skeptical because of the lack of trust for our govt. We always need ‘the truth.’ Isn’t it?!
