KILLING OF TWO SOLDIERS

I'm very sure the people of Okene forgot so soon what soldiers did to Udi town in Obasanjo era. How on earth will they kill innocent soldiers who went to brought peace to the area after the gun men brutally killed innocent Nigerians. What a pity that the government has no solution to this menance ravaging this country.

BEATING THE DRUMS OF WAR.

For those beating the drums of war you may think you are very strong and equiped, but in the end it is our children, sisters, and mother.will suf for it.

My pple my pride

Violence is synonymous with d Ebira race

You can never separate the Ebira race from violence. No, never. Just interact with any of them anywhere in Nigeria and any other part of the world and you will confirm this. Its a curse from God Almighty and no one can take it off them. They are blood suckers like the Vampires. I met them while working at Ajaokuta, violence.I met them at ABU, Zaria, violence. I met them in Kano where I served as a corp member, violence, whether Christian or Muslim. Very unfortunate race.

Jonathan does not care...

I wonder if the answer that will come out of the presidecy is "I don't give a damn".

An these are one of the most overpaid in the world.

Till they attacked OBJs duaghter convoy, Ahmad Tijani and his gang were terrorising lagos. The day they touched the first daughter, the story changed. Should then pray that they attack Jonathan or his family for us to see action. For then he will give a damn.

The only problem I have with

The only problem I have with GEJ is that he did not arrest those that said they will make the country ungovernable for him if he wins the april 16th election. Now, the same people are calling him all manner of derogatory names and telling the whole world he is not fit to lead. They are happy! But will this evil achievement profit them anything? Jonathan will certainly leave the throne one day. One of their own will come to the throne someday. The Jews and the Romans were just celebrating, they have successfully buried the idea call, Jesus. Unknowing to them Jesus rose up the 3rd day. The triumph of Evil over Good is only temporary. We, in the Niger Delta are not stupid. Time will tell.

The flaws of Demo-crazy

Wen some Policemen killed the then leader of boko haram whom himself has killed many pple. the Policemen were all dismissed n the stupid FG compensated his family wit 100 million naira well dat encouraged his followers 2 kill more innocent souls. boko haram don't charge thier victims to court b 4 slaughtering them, but wen dey are arrested d flaws of demo-crazy coms 2 play, den our corrupt judges sentences dem to 3 years in prison after quering d security operative for evidence. Den a month or 2 there wud b a jail break n they are free again now tell me why won't dey strive. Nice Demo-Crazy.

Bokos and their sponsors!

If they and their Sponsors refuse to repent, the judgement of God will come upon them. It is only a tiny tread that is holding this, which may let loose at any time on them. All these they are doing will not make us to forsake our Lord. We will embrace Him still!

crazymouth

I neva knew som1 lyk u is existing in kogi state.Wolahi,u lack manners.Is dat y u guys r involved in robbery nd killing of innocent soul?Urself should go to govt house nd rule Kogi State.Idiot.

We need Peace

We are begging our Goovernment to help us to find solution to these everyday crisis.

small head

Imagine u relate Islam with backwardness, small head with limited thinking. Islam is a religious of peace take it or leave it.

The good people of Ebira,

The good people of Ebira, please do not listen to this baboon very unscrupulous, animal. May the wrath of the devil visit your generation for this comment you made. Idiot.

You just nailed it

You've said it all.

still they say they want

still they say they want alhaji buhari and bakare-let them have them--Jonathan your confused brains told you to sack Azazi and replace him with sambo dasuki--have u seen what the fulanis are doing to you-Doing all to reduce your government to nothing-if you think the newspaper reports and the negative stories and articles as well as boko haram killings not sponsored by tinubu, buhari and bakare then you are a fool

@oklanwon

U re a lunatic to make such comment on my ppl. Nobdy z n support of wt is goin n d con3 presently, bt if u tink BH can take us backward u re jst jokin cos even d source of revenue kogi state is generatin we provide 75% of it. And hw many ebiras re workin n d state we re more than ur ppl provided where u came frm. D spokes men of BH is an Igala man by name Abul Qaqa n collaboration wit wada nd brougth anarchy into my community nd u tot we dnt knw? For hw long av u guys been n d govt? Ws dt nt out greediness yet, u re stil livin n a pamphlet, mod house come to okene nd see a paradise. Bush ppl wit tiny sense. Almighty will one day reveal d secrete. Long live Ebira people.

bokoharam in okene at last

southerners wake up. bokoharam has come. This is the begining of the battle line being drawn. If any of you has lived with the ebiras you will share my fears very panickinly. Ebirs hear only go they dont hear come. The earlier every one concerned takes action to stem this very urgly and disturbing developement the better for nigeria.

Kogi crisis

The problem in Nigeria is spiritual the devil is using boko haram to lure christian to retaliate(to kill), islam itself is anti-christ(mohamed). But all christian should remember the goal is to make heaven not to get involve in physical or canal warfare, the devil is a lair, and to all muslims, u can't fight for GOD, its time to repent Jesus is calling all of you repent, repent, Jesus is calling, waiting. The saviour is ready, have been and alway is, this is the end of time.

Count down

Come to think of it.is it that we are afraid to die,where is justice in this marriage.the intelligence of the security has failed,this cannot happen I advanced country.yes I see alliance of sponsors after they failed to capture power they hold meetings at midnight every end of the month.

this our Nation is becoming

this our Nation is becoming more scarring! We re running at
d end hours. Just inmagin some one dreamed dat she saw a very big clock and it was showing 2munit too 12pm. I pray God help us

never backward

dear, ISLAM is not & will never be a backward religion but rather a religion that teaches & promote fairness. You xtians should stop confusing ur self, did christianity allow adultry, funication, stealing, homosexuality, drinking of alchohol, wearing nude cloths, and countless more? The answwer is no. Why are you acussing ISLAM of the problem you and i created? lack of justice and faiirness is the problem of our leaders, lack of sincere followership and condemnation is our problem. The sooner we realise we are decieving our self, the better.
