  1. I want to believe that we are operating at different frequency level with the Brigade Commander. Over 200 invaders had a field day. They left without a single arrest and he is assuring the public that their lives and properties will be protected. Medicine after death. Again, why suspect Boko Haram? Any clue? Or just the usual hype?
