One year ago this month, Boko Haram's leader Abubakar Shekau released a video announcing a new, reprehensible front in its bloody attempt at forced Islamism: his fighters will begin abducting girls and selling them. The terrorist group has just done that.
For months the incidents received little attention beyond Nigeria. Now the disgust is spreading worldwide.
What is d real matter about what happen na
these people call bokoharam are not muslim, they may be chritian trying to disfigure muslim or islam and island is not a religion of fight or boobing, or killing but religion of peace and harmony.......let the international security intervene and fish out these stupid boko haram christian that called themself muslim.thanks
U sed "boko haram re christian". wen virtualy al d wealthy muslim in nigeria is a boko haramist. c ur religion is a scandal nonsense and misleading. "kil and u b bles" is dat not wat ur religion says? boko haram is completely islamic affair. rubbish
Do you regard yourself as Muslim being a Yoruba man? you are only deceiving yourself because in the world of the Muslims you are not recognize as a muslim, you better start seeking for light instead remaining in darkness with your ignorance.
these people call book haram are islam muslim,,, killing is pat of they religion,,,,,
Here's the thing; how about the people that actually know the root cause of these problems speaking up? If it's political, why doesn't Jonathan honourably resign? Oh! Wait ! No such word as honour in his dictionary, is there ?
First, over 200 girls were abducted, whilst for a long while mr Jonathan didn't think to do or say a word before the int'l face showed up, 11 more were kidnapped. In the same community ??!?!! Now, under a govt whose priority are the people, wouldn't anyone think to send security agencies in search of these missing girls ASAP? Of course, our mr Jonathan didn't think so, hence making it possible for more to be abducted.
Listen people, grow out of the way we all were brought up in Nigeria. Be concerned about every HUMAN, wether they are related to u or not.
one of the best comments so far
let's not deceive ourselves, mr presodent only thinks about his coming election, he doesn't care abt the cry of nigerians. we have a novice as our president. wht can we do?
We ask for Peace in our Country 'Nigeria'. Because innocent blood hv been shed in which God is so much angry with us. Neithermore, am pleading with tears to so calld Boko haram. God must surely blast them accordingly.. God help u with qualified strength to fight them. Amen
Ending Modern Day Slavery? Why You Need To Care? Go To Hell CNN! There is Modern Day Slavery to the Federal Reserve in America and you want me to care more about Africa than our own Country that is going to pig feces? Seriously? I hope CNN burns down so I can p*ss on it's propaganda ashes.
What a bitter, miserable, Jew hating life you have.
The way to fight ignorance is through education.
But fighting armed ignorance also requires force - unrelenting, brutal; with no hesitation and no mercy.
Oh, I tot CNN only report about MH370?
dis xo called boko haram are not just armed men dat goes around kiling and kidnapping but are even found in d army,police,custom,civil defenc,house of asambly,among d ministers and most of d islamic(muslims) in dis country..nd dats y dey cant b found
We all have different pinons of what Boko Haram is. but have any of us try to imagine what these girls and their families are going through. i care not about politics nor politicians and politricks. Please let no stone be left unturn to bring these girls home. may the peace of God encompass these girls and bring unfathomable joy to their souls despite the situation they find themselves(amen).
We would like to get some face time, but drones are cool...
They are still a regional threat, it is not strategic, it is moral. It is not about ending Boko Haram it is a smack. A few hundred girls sold into slavery and rape is strategic to US national security. No it is not.
Our presidency know whom boko haram are and have a hand in it....GEJ may not be aware, but the circular members knows. Past Locomotive leaders like Buhari, IBB and Atiku should be probed. Northern poor masses may be the arm of boko haram but the Unflavored ruling class are the boko haram....Can the poor northerners afford a military tanks?
Hello freedom fighters !
I think you must open a new front in the field , perhaps most important. And that is to open an international tribunal to try every religion , their books specially the Quran, and their so called profets . charge them for crime against humanity and genocides. The least benefit of these trials would be the believers get information about the content of their sacred books they never have read them !!. Please do at least an anouncement about the matter in the name of humanity
I am ready to give my life for this if necessary.
