    Now the truth has emerge, are we still looking for who is boko haram? as they have just came out openly on Saturday and Sunday to show themselves. Please let us not be searching them or their source, they have just show themselves a little.
    All the arms and bullet prof and Army uniform they are using how come about who import them or where do they buy them. The truth is that these people are very much ready, the Southerner are still confuse, the signal is enough. This Country can not survive all these, the earlier WE NIGERIANS (Government) listen to that sign, then more leaves will be serve. Weather we like it or not there are need for round table discussion. All former minitry head should see what they done to this country. Because when they were busy packing money and answering alhaji from the people they should have  provide JOB opportunities for.
    They better go and buried their head in shame.
