Bloody Day:Boko Haram kills Gen. Shuwa, guest in Maiduguri

119

From TIMOTHY OLA, Maiduguri

Barely 24 hours after the Boko Haram islamist sect called for truce, some gunmen believed to be members of the group yesterday shot dead a civil war commander and former member of the Supreme Military Council, General Muhammadu Mamman Shuwa. Shuwa, who fought the Civil War between 1967-1970 alongside his associate and former President Olusegun Obasanjo was killed in his house at Gwange 1 ward opposite Customs area of Maiduguri at noon almost an hour before the Friday (Juma’at) prayers.

Residents  said the retired General usually receives guests in front of his house almost on daily basis, where long mats are spread for the guests, friends and other relations to seat in line with Kanuri/Shuwa tradition. “It is a usual thing for people to come to his house and today’s case was not different. He was seated with some guests and four people also came. Everybody thought they were there to greet him and then proceed to mosque with him unknown to them the four men were on different mission,” a resident said.

The killing of Gen Shuwa came barely a day after one Ibn Abdulaziz gave a hint on the desire of the Boko Haram sect to ceasefire and dialogue with the Federal Government “to end this thing” (attacks). Nobody has claimed responsibility for the killing. However, the JTF in a statement by its spokesman, Lt Col Sagir Musa said Gen Shuwa and one of his guests were killed by unknown gunmen at about 12 noon yesterday. Part of the statement reads”At 12 noon today (Friday) at General Mamman Shuwa (Rtd) house in Gwange 1 area of Maiduguri metropolis, while the General was seated in his house with some guests, four men initially thought to be his visitors and guests for the Juma,at prayers, entered his house and opened fire on the General and his guests.

One of the guests died on the spot while the general died on the way to the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital.” He disclosed that troops of the task force around the area had immediately cordoned off the area, adding that “search for the assailants is ongoing to apprehend them.” He assured that those who killed the General “will be brought to book.”

“We call on the citizens to bring forward information that will assist the security agencies to apprehend the terrorists,” he added. There were also conflicting reports of reported killing of many youths suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect allegedly by JTF within the metropolis on Thursday night.

While some claimed the suspected sect members were “randomly arrested” and shot dead at different locations including the troubled Gwange ward, Kalari, Abbaganaram area and Mafoni, another source also said security troops had engaged some suspected Boko Haram members in a shoot out in their purported hideout within the metropolis, leading to the death of about 30 of the sect members.

But Lt Col Sagir Musa in his reaction maintained he “is not aware of any killing.”

    Inna lillahii wainna ilayhi rajiun. May Allah be pleased with souls of the departed and grant them the best of Al Janna . And to the perpetrators of this heinous crime may Allah expose them .

    • Excellent contribution. One by one the nation will be wiped clean with the blood of those bastards that destroyed it. Awolowo committed suicide, Gowon was banished from the country for aiding and abating the death of Murtala Mohammed. All these idiotic rascals plunged the nation into the darkness we are in today.

  2. An ex civil war comander .yes.yesteryears he partispected in d genocide of d igbos today.he av tested d bullet.i would ask him hw sweet was d bulet.No evil wil go unpurnish. Hope General danjuma av heard d news

  3. daniel…u know not what u say…were u there when he killed your ancestors in civil war? u are tribalisic and mannerless

    • Aba Boy, do not worry about manners O!, the killing of Igwe (husband and wife) took place in Onitsha; their children are now orphans. Did Igwe kill Igbo during the war? What of Dele Giwa? did he kill Igbo during the war?

      Those who rejoice in evil should be very careful O!

      • @Omoibile; You guys have short memory. Yesterday, you were throwing insults at Babangida for the death of Dele Giwa. Today, you are talking off-point. Maybe your brother Femi fani Kayode will buys up the papers to bay his shallow and roguery mind.

  4. “Meanwhile, the military blamed Boko Haram for killing retired Major Gen. Muhammadu Shuwa and a guest in Maiduguri Friday. Four gunmen entered Gen. Shuwa’s house and opened fire on him and his guests, Nigerian military spokesman Lt. Col. Sagir Musa said in a statement. Nigerian troops located in the area immediately cordoned off the area and are searching for the assailants, he said.” CNN News.
    “Major General” Mohamed Shua was among the Vandals that Yakubu Gowan sent to kill millions of the Igbos. Today, he is gone by the same gun! Think deeply before you take any grave action against your fellow human being.

  5. They are all fighting themselves now. The mosnster they created is turning against them. God is not sleeping. He is watching.

  9. ohikhuare omogbai on

    with all due respect to my igbo brothers, i think posting such comments here will not do you any good. after all, you guys that are clamoring for secession are scattered around the country with reasonable investment in other peoples land. be carefull of whatever you post here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

  11. This is serious! 4 a Gen. 2 be brutally murdered in this way.
    JTf hasting up and fish out the killers and their supporters to face punishment 4 the crime they commited. As the departed Gen. and his guest, may their soul rest in perfect peace.

  12. This is a very good news they killed our pple and were happy today nemesisi have cut up with him now he is in a very bitter place of Hell

  13. he died very late but all die be die….for killing igbos during and after the civil war my brother this is judgement time for all of them…when you cut a tree down is not when the leaves will die but with time it will start fading away ….we are being sorry for them now because we did not see what they did to us during 1967/1970

  14. Who will not die? Where is Ikemba? John might be the next through armed robber; would that have mean you have killed your brother Igbo before?

  15. Go on with one nigeria [GOWON], if u understand what i mean? YORUBAS please be magnanimous enough to blame the position and decisions of your late siege that we are still in this den of madness call nigeria with hausa fulani man.

  16. GOWON where is yur one Nigerian slogan?any news from JOS?or didnt’ the sects murder yur kinsmen today?the evil that men do lives with them.

  17. Omogbai,i think u are just right.the igbos have so many investments in the North,the way some of their folks are posting comments here are shocking and could lead this country and the Igbo people in particular backward

  18. Gen. Shuwa was a murderer, who has been murdered. Those who live by sword die by sword. Lets wait and see how Gen. Gowon,Danjuma will go. Definitely not in peace, yeyeye country.

  19. Abdullahi Usman, no murderer can partake in the kingdom of heaven. Shuwa was a murderer who took the life of so many innocent ibos, moreover, he never repented until he was shot with the same weapon he used in killing many. If you are among those who belief that allah will give you 77 virgins when you kill better repent and accept Jesus Christ. We are still waiting for the likes of Gowon, Obasanjo, Danjuma etc how they depart, never in peace.

  20. He was general in killing the Igbos, but couldn’t defend himself from common Boko haram. One by one they all must pay for the innocent blood they wasted. I see BH as agent of revenge instituted by the ALMIGHTY GOD

  21. This sentiments by igbo brothers is not right didn’t Ojukwu killed other Nigerians? Is it nemesis dat made Ojukwu died a shameful death? Stop talking rubbish… Why didn’t. Boko Haram bomb igbo shops in de North? U are always talking like sucklings, if u want to break 4rm Naija den go after all wat do u have? Niger-Delta is not part of u so don’t fool urselves, u dnt even have lands neither go ye to sch. Wat do u have? De Igbos ar exploiting Nig more than politicians. How much is TECNO phone produced how much do u sell it 2 Nigs? Thieves…

  22. we should stop flaring the ember of discord and hatred with tribal connotations.
    boko haram is an ill wind and should not be applauded for their senseless mission no matter whose ox is gouard.

    • I’m afraid AKUJUOBI that it is too late now!

      Your brothers believe in an eye for an eye until dem all go blind O!

  23. Rest in peace general. Your killers too will die, and so there shouldn’t be celebration for what we all must surely test. All murderers wil hav their part in d lake of fire.

  24. THAT IS NIGERIA FOR YOU, WHEN SOUTH EAST SAW ALL THIS THAT IS HAPPENING NOW WE TOLD THEM TO STILL TIGHT WITH NIGERIA OOOH IGBO PEOPLE REALLY SAW TOMORROW, AM NOT FROM IGBO BUT I REALLY SEEING WHAT THEY SAW THAT MADE THEM TRYING TO OWN THEIR OWN STATE, NIGERIA IS A FAILED STATE AND THE HORROR WE SAW TODAY IS WHAT IGBOS SAW MANY YEARS AGO AND TRYING TO AVOID FROM IT, BUT NIGERIA ARMY AND BRITISH ARMY COULDNT LET THEM GO, OOOOH NIGERIA A FAILED STATE, NIGERIA WILL CRASH WATCH IT, JUST WATCH IT DEAR I KNOW IT AND IGBO SAW IT MANY YEARS AGO, I LOVE IGBO’S ALTHOUGH AM NOT FROM IBO BUT THEY HAVE BRAIN AND SAW TOMORROW, NIGERIA HAVE ALREADY FAILED THE NORTH AND YERUBAS YOU SEE NOW YERUBA IS ASKING FOR ODUDUWA REPUBLIC THAT IS WHAT AWOLOWO COULD HAVE GIVE THEM IF HE LISTENED TO OJUKWU, HAUSA IS NOW ASKING FOR ARIWA REPUBLIC THEY WILL PERISH IN BOKO HARAM, IBOS ARE LONG AGO ASKING FOR BIAFRAN REPUBLIC, WE MIDDLE BET WILL HAVE THE NIGERIA OOH NIGERIA IS A FAILED STATE

    • Kill any Igbo man anytime anywhere and wait for doomsday. I advice that FG should never dare enter into dialogue with any criminal. Are they tired and beginning to beg for dialogue? No way! They should go ahead with their nefarious activities ordained by mohammed untill they become one of the top 5 most disastrous histories of the world.

  25. omotayo oyeyipo on

    Let us pls comment responsibly, reasonably and compassionately. The Balewas, the Akintolas, the Ahmadu Bellos etc will also hold the Igbos responsible for what happened to them in 1966. We all have one grudge or the other against one another and majority of Nigerians have one grudge or the other against Nigeria as a state and against its leaders.

    • @Omotayo,the problem with many of you is hypocrazy despite your church attendances in multitude and claim to education.Its obvious that God says in the Bible that he would purnish the wicked,murderers,assasins,witzardary ocultism,deceivers including fact manipulators which is where you rightly fits along with others with your mind set.God will not hold Igbos responsibe for death of Akintola,Okotie Ebo,Tafawa Balewa.Every sensible person knows that the Major Ademulegun amongst others who are not Igbos were active participants in the Major Kaduna Njogwu coup.Therefore, it is hateful to ascribe their death to Igbos.If there is anybody desrving punishment,then that would the north and their other colaborators who engaged in genocide.You are talking about four persons whereas igbos were murdered in mass outside killing of Gen.Ironsi,Fajuyi and others Igbo senior officers by Gowon,Danjuma,Katsina,mama shuwa and co.God is God no matter how you people pretends with over the truths.God’s judgement has been very loud and clear against all the key actors of the civil war,look at the roll call,Murtala mohammed,Benjamin Adekunle,Gowon,Muman shuwa.Danjuma was reported to be mentally deranged during Obl regime,Gowon home state of jos is on fire and now the entire north is cought up in the cunudrome.So, how else do you expect God to speak untill the entire nation is sunk?

    • Ofcourse most of this Ibos posting comments are racist.speaking as if the north was the course of war not them.They did not see the importance of each region as though they speak in a reason of wine.

  26. Biafra…. Biafra our mother land , soon we shall come back, and soon we shall be there We love you . In Aburi we stand . GOD BLESS BIAFRA AND HIS PEOPLE.

  27. Uzoh from lagos on

    God I thank you for today,You are just wonderful and metted justice to your people-BIAFRA.Shua the bulldog now murdered by ragtag army,it is all glorious,I will need to go out tonight and pop champagne ,I ‘m excited at this marvelous news.One down,Three more-Gowon,Danjuma,OBJ to go,we can’t wait to celebrate their exit as soon as possible.Ndigbo please have fun today and much more go to church on sunday for thanksgiving to God who is eternally on the throne.Oh my God this is good and awesome.

  28. The truth of the matter is that ten army generals killed in the north, may not be equalled to one fallen Igbo colonel. So let them go ahead and finish themselves. Morons! Kill any Igbo man and wait for doom.

  29. Every1 in maidugari r on d run & d Gen shuwa sittin tight @ home proves dat he is a member of d Boro Haram sect. I suspect his membership to d sect was in doubt & dat cost him his life.

  30. you guys should not be worried over boko haram it will soon become a battle for the north listing the wicked shall never go unpunished

  31. Boko haram hates Buhari. Iam not political over this issue, and Nigeria should Be aware that bokoharam doesn’t want to ceasefire, because the putative leader alhaji sheku is always exuding on his self confidence; regarding Nigeria soldiers as baby police. That why they came up with some conditions that many would not accept” Buhari is innocent. Asari D. Of N. Delta didn’t give such conditions for peace talk, meanwhile JTF should continue their side of peace talk’ that is gun for gun till when the northan leaders will stand up to this disgrace and challenges from their boys.

  32. Atimes good things do come out of evil deeds….the souls of our mudered igbos are begining to rest. Never again shall those who commited those genocides be at rest….one by one, they go de go.

  33. Oh! this is one of the monkey man from the north that, the heartless Soviet Union and their allies handed weapons while raiding Biafrans territory from the air to go and shoot innocent civilians…
    Well, this is purely nemesis and all those participated in that unjustified civil war will continue to receive their turn of bullets in a painful manner such as this monkey that upgrade himself to rtd major general shuwa monkey mamman.
    The brave Biafrans will be happy to tear your spirit in pieces while kicking you out to join your evil wicked ancestor’s to hell fire for the killing and raping mostly under age children to death and almost 3 millions innocent civilians, children of Biafrans.

  34. THANKS TO BOKO HARAM YOU GUYS ARE GREAT AT LEAST MANY OF THOSE KILLED MY PEOPLE BETWEEN 1966-1970 HAVE RECEIVED DEATH REWARD SOME LOST THEIR SONS AND RELATIVES BUT IT REMAIN GOWAN IF YOU GUYS CAN’T GET HIM DOWN FOR ME HE WILL FACE GENOCIDE CASE SOON TO ROT IN HELL. GREAT JOB BH

  35. Saka Pena Aloma on

    Why Shuwa? Why now? If there ever was a patriot, Muhammed Shuwa was it. His humane and patriotic handling of the Tiv crisis in the 1960s will always speak for him. Why are these bigots intent on eliminating all our real statesmen?

  36. Gen. Shuwa, lived by the guy and died by the gun,God no go ves. Well the curtain is drawn on Gen. Shuwa and what next? Guess what blood of innocent men and women crying unto God against his and no about of Inna lillahii wainna ilayhi rajiun will save him from judgement. Who comes next Gowon and no amount of prayer solves that. BH if you targets this people more especially Gowon’s head,I am staking $1,000.000.00 for you. Men get what the sow. Awo committed suicide and Gen.Shuwa gruesomely killed,so Gowon You can’t escape it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Chucks why are u Igbos so stupid and myopic, don’t u think your fellow foolish Igbos majors stir d hornets nest by killing the Northern leaders and southwest leaders ? or do u think they are stupid as u Igbos are? You created the problem and now ur the most complainant. Or do u think war is a tea party event.go and lick your wound and stop blaming other people 4 ur wrong doing.foolish people.

  37. ka mkpulu obi ndi nwuru n’agha biafra zuo ike na ndokwa AMEN,ka mkpulu obi juru na biafra agaghi adi,taa afufu n’uwaa ma na enuigwe AMEN.

  38. Every killer must be killed.And every mortal must test death. My teacher said in those days dat yoruba use to call awolowo ‘immortal awo’.but today where is awo??? In hell not even in purgetary. Nonsense!!!!

  39. God kept saying in his word, the wicked shall never be left unpunished. This is the beginning of seize fire and negociation, GEJ u can go and negociate with devil, see what will be the outcome. They are all cattle human beings, behavior, thinking, actions, no education and die like cattle. The evil that men do will live after them, whoever and whatever you are. When the finish every human being there, they can face their cattles, irresponsible things.

  40. D the evil that men do lives and dies with them. Let d Almighty God judge him if he did well when he killed innocent civilians btw 67 – 70

  41. igbo poeple u dont have manner at all dis is how u rubbish kogites in yr comment yesterday and now dis i wil b happy if sun newspaper can clamp down dis comment site just as punch did there,s today

  42. oh, why do we rejoice in d death of anyone, it’s UNCHRISTIAN, even if u considers him/her an enemy. We should pray for restoration of peace in this Nation, even if we’ll part ways.

  43. BH.NOW KNEW THAT THEIR SO CALLED LEADERS AND GENS ARE EVIL. OOH WHAT A JUST ALMIGHTY GOD WE SERVE.VENGENCE IS FOR HIM.LET THE LIVING LEARN.

  44. Well done BH kudos to you all,Next target will be Modu Sherife,Mohamed Buhari,Adamu Ciroma,Niger state governor and Gowon, if all this ppl could be wipe out you and I will see the new north. Adaka enwe.

  45. sometimes I wonder how we think. in this country. boko haram killed one of the most prominent members of the borno race, some igbos say they are rejoicing because he killed igbos during the war. is war a tea party. and did he kill anybody because he was mamman shuwa or because he was a soldier in the nigerian army. today scores of robbers and kidnappers litter across the eastern states, perpetuating evils in igbos land. are these people not indigbos. all over the country igbos are making money from both legal and illegal tradings, yet they still speak with. alot of bitterness about others. didn’t igbos caused the civil war by the stupid and parochial actions of their leaders. lets face the issues at hand. boko haram is a menace that will not serve anybody well. whether they kill we christains or not, it doesn’t matter. the life of a christain is not more important than that of a muslim. if by tomorrow we christains begin to kill muslims, it cannot be justifiable. because those culprits we dont know so why should we kill innocent lives. the boko haram sect is completely out of control and leaders in borno cannot work against them for fear of being killed like shuwa and co. the nation must conquer this menace.

  46. This is d beloved Nigeria he fought for. Some of dat blame Igbos for d civil war sighting d 1967 coup are so wicked. Are u telling us dat innocent Igbos killed in d north by Gowon and his Fulani brothers were part of dat coup? BH must continue until d evil northern leaders are completely wipe off.

  48. Many of these commentators are just extremely insensitive especially the Igbo guys. If you don’t learn to forgive those who offend you, you run the risk of heading for and rotting in hell. Who is not guilty of the civil war? Are Igbo’s not as guilty as are Hausas, Yorubas or Fulanis. Are they not all part of it. From which tribe were people not killed? Leave the ultimate judge (God Almighty) to judge everyone. He does not want any sinner to die. You who is belly -aching for a war that maybe you were not even born when it was fought will only send yourself to hell for your incriminating comments ( The Bible says that ‘you should judge not so that you would not be judged’) on something that you should have let go of and let God. The country is still suffering because of all these belly aching. Give peace a chance in Nigeria. The war had not done anybody any good. Enough is enough biko. If you spend a thousand years on earth and send yourself to hell because of careless comment on a past event that did not do anyone any good it is your fault. Mind your utterances and ask God to forgive all of us Nigerians.

  49. JTF, WHERE WERE THE GENERAL’S BODY GUARDS WHEN THE SHOOTINGS WERE GOING ON? OR IS HE NOT ENTITLED TO HAVE BODY GUARDS IN HIS HOUSE? I GIVE JTF 7 DAYS TO ARREST ALL THE PEOPLE WHO KILLED THE GENERAL, THE MAN WHO FOUGHT TO KEEP NIGERIA ONE. MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE (AMEN).

  50. dis igbo pple blood which died in civil war of so call nigeria is stil cryn.tanks 4killin so call bastard major genaral.igbos must be free 4rm dis so call nigeria.

  51. jst a tot 4 boko haram if there is still any part of their ear d devil left for them.i hope u ppl took permission frm allah b4 using western bombs & arms against d innocent.cos I believe dat those weapons ar harram & judging by dat ur allah is nt merciful u realise there will b no forgiveness 4 u ppl therefore no virgin 4 any of u,nt even a single one.u see how u will die in vain?all these things abt talks wt fed govt.i hope u ar nt developing chicken feet now cos I will suggest dat u hold on, let jtf settle dis matter in d north 4 I know dats d language u ppl understand.moreover am surprised dat u ppl ar concerned over ur wives & family members in detention.ironic indeed,u forget so soon dat u send other ppls family members to early grave & u want urs to live.well let dat nt bother ur leaders now 4 dats nigerian prison is a better place compared to begging alms under scortching sun,besides they ar masters in disappearing frm prison.even if they ar out wat kind of environment have u prepared 4 ur so called family members.4 I believe dat if eventually u wipeout ur pple in d north & ur family members eventually disappears frm prison,wen they dont see anybody to kill they’ll eventually kill themselves,cook their children & eat since u cannt do without bloodshedding,so wat will eventually b d use of ur worry over ur family members.well wat shld occupy u ppls minds now is how u’l kiss d dust d hands of jtf.or better still quickly find another excuses for ur proposed talks (like nigerians forgive me,am veeeeery sorry)cos ur recent release holds no water.dats 4 ur information.

  52. General Muhammadu Shuwa was an apostle of the discredited slogan: To keep Nigeria One is a Task. . . and all the Gowon nonsense. He was brutal and mindless during the pogrom and senselessly bloody during the genocide. Read all the books on the Civil War and the Onyeuke Report on the massacres. It was Shuwa all the way. Was he really murdered in his compound by four men. I am now convinced more than ever before that whatever we sow we will inevitably reap. Like we sing in our Church during mass in our parish: This kind God, I never see your kind . . .
    Kanayo E.

  53. Jesus christ. Hv neva seen so much hate b4. Sad to see wat goes on in d minds of our youths. My fellow igbos we dnt spread hate and encourage violence. We r a tribe of peace. We hv prosperd amngst any oda tribe. Y nt b grateful and rmve such grievance frm ur hrt. U r al beginning to snd lik terrorists.

  54. Boko Haram has stirred the hornest’s nest and they will have no rest. This is a slap on the face of the Army. A few weeks ago, they killed a Lt and now a retired General.

    I am hopeful that they exercise restraint in the pursuit of this mad Boko Haram people, because there is bound to be some collateral damage.

  55. PLEASE LET THIS BLOG BE A PLACE OF LEARNED PEOPLE, WHERE GOOD ENGLISH WRITE UP IS PARAMOUNT NOT TEXT MESSAGES. WELL SPELLED OUT ENGLISH SO THAT THE PEOPLE CAN BE WELL INFORMED.

  56. stanley okechukwu on

    As Gen shuwa was by unknown gunmen, who may be the next, pls FG should declear all the northern state, state of emergency b4 they will set Nigeria ablaz (but Boko why all these kiling, pls shun it: It is a dastered act).

  57. GREAT JOB BOKO HARAM. I THOUGHT U WANTED TO CEASEFIRE. PLEASE DONT OHH. CONTINUE WITH THE KILLING UP NORTH, ITS KNOWN OF MY BUSINESS. YOU CAN KILL ALL THE NORTHERNERS FOR ALL I CARE.
    CARRY GO BOKO HARAM

  58. It is certain that until the crushing burden of tribalism throughout this nation is lifted from the back of the people, we as a nation cannot enjoy the maximum peaceful being which is possible. We cannot build the Nigeria of our desire under the constant menance of aggression. Freedom from fear and freedom from tribalism must be sought together irrespective of the language we speak. We have lost a man, a Nigerian, an African just as many unfortunate others once again to the sworn forces of global terror. That man served his country, though in what capacity i honestly do consider myself less erudite enough to state in perfection. But what i can state categorically however here to christians and muslims alike is that Gen. Shuwa, the deceased was a creature of God/Allah. His family deserves our sympathy.
    The world is watching us.

    Urhobo waado!
    Long live Nigeria.

  59. civil war commander and former member of the Supreme Military Council, General Muhammadu Mamman Shuwa.

    No more southerners to kill so Boko Haram is killing themselves, their sympathisers, and children. Even GTB has moved out all their southern staff leavin only the Northerners. So go ahead and kill urselves and go JTF, bomb em to hell cos we’ll not agree to their nonsense ceasefire (cause they knew JTF is closing in on them)
    What their sympathisers sowed is what they re reaping

  60. Baba tea is a foolish yoruba man who doesnt know any thing, i think bcos ur ppl neva sufa the way we sufad but one day it ill be ur own turn.

  61. I am deeply deeply sorry for the killing of the General , let the family take solace in the lord. pls Ibo brother’s evil is evil no matter how you look at it, lets condem BK in that heartless act. But if there is relationship which existed between the general and the BH, well let God Almighty Judge that. Be-careful of some ultrances you make here in this forum to avoid chaos

  62. Since the PDP-Jonathan administration assumed office, we have endless attacks on place of worships, massive looting of our nation’s treasury, poor roads, unstable power supply, armed robbers and kidnappers operating at will; massive unemployment among our young graduates, unrest in Delta and threat of Boko Haram and other social menace. By now if President Jonathan and his PDP political bandits are interested in running the country, they should have do that effectively long time ago. A real political party and leader will take each of the items enumerated above one by one and pursue it to a successful completion. It will take six to twelve months to provide adequate security for all Nigerians if the Jonathan led PDP government is serious about the lives and property of all Nigerians at home. What the President should do is to mobilize all the resources of the federal government to address the current security nightmares from the Boko Haram, armed robbers to the Niger Delta insurgent. It can be done within three months with coordinated attacks from the state and local government and Nigeria will be a secure country once again. The Jonathan led PDP government will never do anything about the security situation until all Nigerians at home do something about the intolerable social, economic and political condition in the country. The massive unemployment of many young graduates in Nigeria is unacceptable and can be addressed if the looting of the treasury by the Jonathan-led PDP government is over with. The amount of money that Nigeria is wasting on the office of president and the national assembly if sliced in half is enough to hire and equipped our police force to meet the demands of the 21st century security; repair, reconstruct, and rehabilitate all federal roads; provides adequate power supply, and refurbish our tertiary education system from the southern Nigeria to Northern Nigeria, and from the eastern Nigeria to western Nigeria. You see, we can do it if we have the right person and the right political party at the helm of affairs in Nigeria.

  63. May the soul of Gen Muhammadu Shuwa rot in hell. He will face a more severe punishment never meted to any while in Hell. The Souls of those he destroyed shall rejoice and feast over his death in Heaven. Glory be to the Almighty who is mighty than man’s inhumanity to man on earth. Praise is thy Lord the good people of Biafra for so shall all the evil men of Nigeria Genocide against the innocent Souls of Biafra continue to fall by the sword of their own iniquities ………Amen!!!

    My people let us all forget the past and move forward to progress of our country Nigeria, killing of ibo’s Yorubas, Hausas does not bring peace to the nation. Lett’s starts from the president from all angle the president is not the Messiah of Nigeria from the look of things, apart from the war mentioned by all statements of the ibo’s our country has never been this unsafe, I agree with Dr.J. Hope there is no peace ever since he attain the position of presidency, endless attacks, kidnapping, etc. the president is not capable of ruling Nigeria, in as much as we refuse to read the writing on the wall no amount of tribalism antagonizing will solve the problem. We God’s intervention killing is never a solution but change of power to the eligible and God send.
