  1. When Boko Haram bastards kill innocent people, you believe the story , but when the terrorists are killed, you don,t believe.

  2. Well the army have joined the business of propaganda. Boko Haram bombings now equates to the army testing their weapons. So tell me how can they be trusted

  3. Is it because there was a blast in Yobe today that army came and told us this. Since May 29 have you heard that army killed boko haram members, rather they are accepting them in surrender?

  4. Less than 15 weapons, manned by over 100 terrorists. ‘Gallant Nigeria Army’. I repeat, the propaganda and media gymnastics embarked upon by the army under Jonathan govt and sustained in the Buhari govt cannot help the fight against insurgency. Nigerians don’t even want to hear this, they want results.

  5. Your nose go soon block. Everything to you na propaganda. Its like you are just getting to know the word “propaganda”
