    How come no living eyewitness can be found to collaborate this story. As December runs out Imam becomes desperate to invent an imaginary victory against his boko haram relatives

      So what’s stopping you from going into the theatre of war to provide the needed “living eyewitness”?

      If our journalists are real journalists they should be there to bring stories and pictures. Ufortunately with their mindset of hatred against Buhari and APC government they cannot be trusted to be at the theater of war. Their reports with only serve their propporietors.

    Dasuki’s boys are gradually being decimated. They are gradually running out of weapons which will never be replenished because Dasuki is no longer the NSA. They are gradually going down.

    God bless our troop!
