@Gaius Ogan said, ” Nigeria and deception! They showed us pictures of military weapons and men firing missiles. I laugh when I saw those pictures. Then they told us about bandits running helplessly to a military barrack. I laughed more. Then it turns out that they were simply deceiving us with false narratives. The bandits were the ones killing soldiers and taking over military bases. I have learned not to trust Nigerian government. ”
@Ayo Johson said, ” They call them bandits but they’ re attacking military formations and shooting down jets successfully. Afghanistan is upon us if we don’ t get serious with governance in Nigeria. Let’ s keep playing the ethnic and religious sentiments. ”
@Olusola Lawan said, ” This cannot be true, Shebi Buhari people said they have chased the bandits out of the forests? Nobody should scatter my head I beg. ”
@Michael said, ” The North are enjoying what is happening and that was why Gumi was saying they should give them amnesty like Niger Delta militants as they were fighting the same cause. Mumu people. ”
