    Imagine! In a police station. This isn’t a good news.

      This is like Chibok Girls’ story, it may or may not have happened. Did the Police say they suffered any explosion in their station? All we heard is one Bala here one hajiya there recounting what they thought happened in Yola. This is Mohamed’s Nigeria for you.

    How sad. And I hoped we had heard the last of these since my hero promised they had been decimated since December.
    My people are dying like flies back home..while my hero who incidentally is the C-in-C is lost eating ‘dabino’ (date palm) in Saudi.
    Sai Baba HAS NOT EVEN DEEMED IT FIT TO VISIT ONE..EVEN ONE OF THESE UNFORTUNATE SITES. YET THESE POOR PEOPLE BELONG TO THE ‘97%’ BABA SAID HE WILL CONCENTRATE ON.
    THIS IS NOT THE CHANGE WE FOUGHT FOR!

    Boko Haram has indeed been technically defeated. God bless peripatetic, senile, illiterate certificate forger and perjurer MuhamMADu Buhari and all APC apes.

      Don’t say God bless them. say – May Beelzebub their god lead them to their doom.

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        I was being sarcastic.

  • B. Januzaj

    What an unfortunate incidence. My heart goes out to those who might have lost loved ones..and to our hapless security men who are poorly equipped since the current regime have failed to buy more arms in addition to the ones the past regime acquired.
    Nigerians have been alerted by civil society groups and vigilant Eagle eyed mostly PDP/APGA legislators that monies that could have been used to purchase arms are to b spent on ‘Aso Rock Rent’.
    What a scam.

    • Otile

      My brother, don’t cry. I don’t think any life was lost. This is nothing but diversionary tactics and propaganda. How come the police station where the explosion is said to have occurred don’t know about it?

    MY CHILDREN,

    You have to know conjugation very well. When you say blast has destroyed a whole area,
    to remove windows of other houses, you cannot say that you don’t know if casualties are
    there. What again do you expect to be there? A bomb that can do this thing you say here
    can tear human being to look like toilet roll that you put inside kerosene stove. Therefore,
    it is better you write that there are too many casualties that your reporter is too afraid to
    go there and count dead bodies. That is how you’re to conjugate your lexis and structure.

      IF BUHARI FAILS ON BUDGET PREPARATION: FAILS ON APPOINTING A CABINET SEASONABLY,
      FAILS ON TIMELY DELIVERY OF ANY ELECTION PROMISE, FAILS TO DEFEAT BOKO HARAM,
      WHAT ELSE WILL NIGERIANS LOOK FORWARD TO, IF HE FAILS ON ANTI-CORRUPTION WAR?

  • Otile

    Buhari is a very corrupt man. He has influenced the media so much that ordinary news has become stale and useless. The police station where the explosion occurred is saying nothing for fear of Imam sacking them. Since Imam took over power all the photos the media show people are very old images that don’t reflect real news. Each time they show JEG or Stella Oduah they show them crying. You never see any current picture of the news like BBC, Aljezeera.

    We hate the deception they celebrate as al-Taqiyya. Despicable

      Hatred will give your heart attack very soon, mr wailer. Maybe you can also relocate out of this country otherwise you will continue to wail till 2023 AD.
