  7. Kudos to the JTF who put there life on line for the peace of nigeria. I suggest that since there mission is to kill and to destroy, they should be destroyed. The boko harams do not spare anyone that comes there way hence they should not be spare. Remember if you arrest and detain them they will regroup to attend either the prison or where they are being detained, that is why we have the cases of police station attack and prison break.
