The spokesperson for the Vigilante Group in Borno state, Abbas Gava, told journalists on phone that his colleagues were in a patrol vehicle when they stepped on an explosive device in Huyum village.

“It was in the afternoon of Tuesday when our members in Askira Uba local government area were going on patrol, oblivious of the ambush attacked planned by Boko Haram, their vehicle stepped on a bomb buried in the middle of the road,” said Mr. Gava.

“Three of our members were killed instantly while others engaged the terrorists in shootout. The terrorists opened fire on fleeing villagers and two persons were killed.

    The Illuminati, formed by Adam Weishaupt has its primary
    objectives for a New World Order as: 1) Abolition of all ordered governments 2)
    Abolition of private property 3) Abolition of inheritance 4) Abolition of
    patriotism 5) Abolition of the family 6) Abolition of religion and 7) Creation
    of a world government

    Albert Pike was “a 33rd degree Mason, he was one of the founding fathers, and head of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, being the Grand Commander of North American Freemasonry from 1859 and retained that position until his death in 1891. In 1869, he was a top leader in the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan”. Years before the first world war he
    wrote under the inspiration of his spirit-guide that three world wars were necessary to establish the New World Order.

    It should be clear where all nations of the world are heading to. USA, Canada and Europe have been unofficially destroyed without many knowing it. The only regions left are Africa and the other so-called third world countries; the agents of NWO are virtually in all govts today. They tried to come up with gay legislation last time but it did not fly. Part of their
    objective is to keep mounting pressure on all govts to pass obnoxious legislation such as the bill this irresponsible woman from Ekiti presented in the senate. It is a question of time and they will create the luciferian utopia they desire. Many of the so-called NGOs’ are actually fronts for the NWO czars. Their time is running out and that is why they are pushing for the total destruction of the family through feminism, LGBT, and all manner of organisations. The end point is Antichrist govt. Shame on our senate!

      • “Today, i can report to you that the entire 70 plus kilometres stretch from Maiduguri

      to Bama and all the way to Banki which leads to Cameroun and the Central African

      Republic are in the hands of our gallant troops. They have so degraded the capacity

      of Boko Haram that the terrorists can no longer hold on to any territory just as they

      can no longer carry out any spectacular attack.”

    I am not feeling well. This ‘die-die and bomb-story’ is too much for me at my age.
    I don’t have calculator that is working because there is no light to charge my battery.
    You can put all this bomb-bomb into one story and use calculator to add up dead bodies.

    In one story there are 22 dead. In another story, 5 dead, all by these Boko Haram people.

    When you add up the figures by end of work today, President Buhari can see the true picture.
    Buhari told us last year that we should rejoice that he has killed Boko Haram with ‘body language’.
    See as dead body come full ground like if Nigeria is like abattoir where they’re killing cows for sale.

    22+5 killed in one day by IPOB and MASSOB? Na wa o!
    Liar Mohammed over to you!

    Auditor General released the reports of stolen commonwealth – $16billion stolen from the oil revenue in 2014 alone and pdplutocrats strikes back! Unfortunately this was expected and the security forces should dig deep to leverage intelligence to strangle the supply lines and logistics of these militia. Thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their family.

    The bombers and their entire sponsors are going straight to hell. The deepest part of hell is reserved for them. The authorities should however do the needful to work with the best resources in the world to choke out their supply lines, fish out the perpetrators and their sponsors. The looters would be caged and the stolen commonwealth retrieved. This is corruption fighting back and we the people, led by this administration will never retreat, victory is certain, God willing.

    What is Mohamed Buhari doing with the $2.8 billions he borrowed from the World Bank? That lone is not doing us any good.

    • Otile

      It seems he took the loan for himself and his hand-picked Fulani tribesmen.
