Terrorists Slaughter Nigerian Children Like Goats AND The World is Looking

By Adeola Aderounmu

In NORTHERN Nigeria mostly in Borno State, the terrorist group popularly called Boko Haram have been on the rampage in recent days.

During week 8 of 2014 they reportedly killed more than 200 people in separate attacks. In one attack they actually razed down a whole village and shot the villagers as “sport” as they try to flee.

Tuesday-Week 9, Boko Haram stormed a school and killed several students mostly male. Reports suggest that between 29 and 5o pupils may have been killed. They were butchered and some of them were burnt as the school was razed down.

Boko Haram has since been kidnapping women and girls and keeping them as sex slaves.

North Western Nigeria is now probably the most dangerous place to live in the world and definitely the worst place you want your children to be. They are targets for blood thirsty terrorists.

Terrorists that target children and women are definietly cowards and murderers.

The government of Nigeria under the rulership of one lazy man called Goodluck Jonathan does not seem to have a clue on how to curb this terror or protect the lives of women, children and other people in Northern Nigeria.

The Nigerian army can oppress civilians and ordinary people but has failed the test of Boko Haram terror.

In January 2014 Boko Haram killed 22 at a church service in Adamawa. The New chief of army staff and Mr. Jonathan boasted that Boko Haram will be history. These boasting and promises have been going on for a long time.

Months after months and attack after attack, the people of Northern Nigeria are promised that Boko Haram will be history. Rather it is Boko Haram that continues to thrive killing civilians and sometimes the members of the Nigerian army too.

So we are now at this point where the cluelessness of Mr. Jonathan is confirmed. Why hasn’t he resigned? Under his watch 20 billion dollars is missing and people are being slaughtered like goats in Northern Nigeria.

The vices and problems in Nigeria have escalated under the reign of Mr. Jonathan. The man who said he had no shoes in 2011 has made sure that many Nigerians now have no shoes.

Mr. Jonathan is incompetent, and has no clues about what the presidency of Nigeria entails. All he has done it to acquire more aircrafts and other personal wealth to himself and the crooks that surround him.

It is so bad that Mr. Jonathan made a budgetary allocation for his feeding in the Nigerian budget. These are his priorities-his own comfort.

Everytime Boko Haram attacks, he and his zombie media men are quick to condemn the attack. The efforts of the Nigerian army is nothing to write home about. Why are they not better equipped than the terrorists?

In the end a more permanent solution to the menace of Boko Haram is desired.

There is a need to change the system of government in Nigeria. Having a center with so much power and authority need to be demolished with immediate effect.

Nigeria needs to revert to the system of governance that is based on regional government.

North-western Nigeria is now in the hand of terrorists. They should be flushed out with immediate effects by all means and all force possible.

Under regional government, there will be no morons saying they want to capture Abuja because Abuja will cease to exit. Under regional government the people of North Western Nigerian will equipp their own military to withstand insurgency or to prevent it from raising its ugly head in the first place.

The world cannot keep looking away while children and other vulnerable people are subjected to genocide. This is crime against humanity.

The Nigerian government should know its prime duty. To protect the life and rights of her citizenry. Those who cannot guarantee these are not fit for positions in government.

Mr. Jonathan should know this and one more attack from Boko Haram, I will be shocked that the Nigerian people do not chase Mr. Jonathan out of office by force. Enough is enough!

Boko Haram Continues to Ridicule The Nigerian Army


On October 12 2013 the Nigerian Army through one Commander of the 3 Division Special Operation Battalion Damaturu, Colonel A.O. Abdullahi said that his command will not give Boko Haram the opportunity of invading the state again.

But on the 20th of October 2013 Boko Haram murdered 19 people in Borno. They dressed-up as officers of the Nigerian Army and murdered their victims.

This is not the first, second or third time Boko Haram has done some killings just to ridicule the Nigerian government.

I can’t remember exactly when but even Mr. Goodluck Jonathan boasted once that Boko Haram will be gone in a certain month of “June”. I think it was after that they Boko Haram bombed the UN office in Abuja.

It was after his boasting that the Jonathan government started marking events amidst tight security or low key because of the fear of attacks of Boko Haram.

It does not matter what the Nigerian military has done or is doing, what is constant is that Boko Haram rules in Borno and they do what they like and how they like.

I don’t think there are schools in operation anymore in Borno. Boko Haram is ensuring that schools are burnt or students and teachers are killed.

Borno state is both a dilemma, and a source of national embarassment to the Nigerian government. Under a state of emergency, Boko Haram remains potent and deadly.

Some police officers from Eastern Nigeria are currently protesting deployment to Borno State. That is the height of ridicule that Boko Haram has brought the Nigerian Army and the clueless Jonathan administration.

Where does this madness lead Nigeria to?

So, Goodluck Jonathan’s visit shuts down Maiduguri!

Adeola Aderounmu

Nigeria’s ruler is visiting Borno State on Friday the 8th of March 2013 and it appears the state has shut down already.

Reports have it that the “entire” Nigerian security has been deplored to Borno State with high and tight security in place ahead of the president’s visit.

Residents are in panic and have piled up food and provision as it seems that there will be movement in Borno State on Friday.

In my opinion this is a very sad development from several perspectives.

This visit will not allow the ruler of Nigeria to see firsthand how the people of the states have lived under normal circumstances being murdered and decimated daily by terrorists (aka Boko Haram) and through government recklessness/maladministration.

Goodluck Jonathan may be visiting Borno State as a ghost town. Little wonder he said he can’t grant amnesty to ghosts. Of course he won’t see any terrorist during his visit because the state if shut down for his visit. If he is unlucky Boko Haram may disguise and blend in with his security men and do a great harm. A ghost town sometimes is more dangerous than the town of the living.

But trust the deceit of governments in Nigeria. They can rent a crowd at any time, t, and moment m. they can even bring the government-owned crowd from Abuja.

Does anyone remember the mad women and other people who demonstrated against Wole Soyinka recently? Some people in Nigeria are inexplicable useless and worthless, like the ones who organized and participated in the “rent a crowd” against Wole Soyinka after he took Patience Jonathan to the cleaners.

In any case, as per the matter at hand, would it have been out of place if Goodluck Jonathan paid an unannounced, unscheduled visit to Maiduguri?

That would have given him the opportunity to see a real life situation of life in Borno State.

This is a state that collects money from the Niger Delta oil revenue every month and yet provides no form of security for the people living in the state. Borno State doesn’t appear to be under the control of the Nigerian government. All types of terrorism network are fully established in Borno State. They come from far and near and settle in Borno. They are above the law and above the government of Borno. They have network across northern Nigeria.

In the past 2 years it is hard to know if a governor representing the Nigerian government exists in Borno State.

Suddenly the governor is giving a Friday-holiday. Why? What for?

The streets are already drying up of human and commercial activities. The holiday further makes it official that no one is expected to be on the streets when the ruler of Nigeria comes visiting.

How would Jonathan be able to access the real situation on ground after creating an artificial environment for his visit? I think, before his arrival, the purpose of the visit is defeated. For me a visit to a ghost town is useless. Why not visit the grave year instead?
