    It’s disturbing, worrisome and unacceptable for the country to have all their security chiefs, Men of military defense from the North and still could not tame the ugly activities of the so called insurgency.
    A lots of lives and properties are still lost in the North. See Borno, Zanfara, Adamawa, Kaduna, Gombe, Benue. These states are still not free from attacks.

    This gives us strong reason to doubt the potential and activities of the security chiefs.

    They have to be sincere, re-strategise and possibly seak sincere support from United Nation.

    The North is just using this Boko Haram to milk the country dry under PMB who claimed that Boko Haram has been technically defeated yet the insurgents have been attacking so ferociously now than ever before. All the Military Chiefs in Nigeria are from Muslim North who know all the terrains in that zone yet we have not seen any significant shift despite huge budgetary allocations to combat the insurgency. Now that Buhari has fraudulently won his reelection there will be more killings now from Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram as we are seeing now what is happening in Christian parts of Kaduna state. Nigeria is in great danger and will regret Buhari’s second coming.
