      It is possible that some of your colleagues, I mean jihadists planted the bombs that wrecked the buildings. Remember the plane that overflew the church before the collapse in Eko. What was the plane doing there at that particular time? Food for thought.

          I am talking about jihadists like you going about burning churches, kidnapping girls to sleep with but you are rating about Jona. What has the good Christian man got to do with your atrocities.
