  15. We dont wnt this govt, goodluck should stepdown and gve the power to responsible and reasonable person. This govt is the one killing us, no boko haram becos any boko haram attack they use to speakout. So let us we nigerians muslims and christians should stop beating around the bush. Govt are the ones killing us.

  16. Dere’s ntn lyk endtime here. Ds’s simply bad leadership and lack of patrotism. Wen dey started in Kebbi, killing Islamic clerics who didn’t support dem, we didn’t say anytn cos we were nt affected. Wen dey killed their leader, Yusuf, we didn’t say anytn cos we’re nt affected. Now we want 2 fight. We shd learn 4rm ds and join hands 2geda 2 fight d real enemy: bad leadership. Not Muslims vs Christians.
