  • Why are we so concerned about the JTF and avoid the menace of the dreaded Bokko Haram? Let the BK stop all their nefarious activities and embrace peace and re frame from the killings of innocent people in the name of Jihad for Allah. Islam is a religion of peace. You can not fight for Allah, let him fight for himself. You cannot enforce your ideology everybody- as people are free morals.
