  1. That idiot called yerima started dis whole thing abt boko haram wen he inflicted sharia on hitherto peaceful Zamfara. He represents d agents of darkness who would stop @ nothing 2 see dis country islamised even at d cost of many innocent lives as we see almost everyday his brothers in boko haram & now ansaru unleash terror on God’s people in d name of fighting for Islam & allah.

  2. @silk. Do you have factual evidence to prove that it was senator Yerima that initiated boko haram? This insurgency started since when Jonathan became president. I personally believed that the hidden factor behind Nigeria’s insurgency is PDP. It is now I realized that you people are downtrodden enemies of Islam. You will die in grief and ignorance and Islam the one and only true religion of Almighty God will remain and continue to reign in all the nook and crany of universe insha Allah.

    • @Mutana Farouk: Abeg no dey vex. Thank God for your zeal. But I believe that one day you shall know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH shall set you free. For there is none other name, given among men; whereby we must be saved: except the name of JESUS CHRIST.
      It is written: For the glory of the knowledge of God wil cover the whole world as the waters cover the seas!
