Nigerian security Agency is supporting terrorism for not arresting the leader of Miyetti-Allah_terrorist-group.

Nigerian jihadist army should take their python dance or whatever it's called to the Core Northern Nigeria where it's needed.
They should stop creating tension in Christian dominated and most peaceful part of Nigeria

They are in the right place doing nothing.

Rubbish.. Are they not supposed to be flushing out bandits and terrorist herdsmen from highways and forests instead of harassing innocent law abiding hardworking men,women and children in the east.

Any reward?

Atilogwu is a kind of dance by young people in Igboland while Udo means peace. So dance of peace is it.

Atilogwu Udo sounds awkward, they would have sounded better if they adopted "egwu Udo" , where egwu general means dance but not a specific dance.

What can be more useless and sacrilegious than this,the Nigerian army desecrating hallowed culture and tradition!?!?

The NIGERIAN army declaring military exercises in every pert of the country,more it less engaging in warfare against the entire country,what a shame!
The Nigerian army is a let down, a disgrace to Nigeria

I so hate being a Nigerian.

Whatever the name is, this looks like continuation of the civil war. The southeast is under illegal military occupation.

Atilogwu dance is a war dance in Igbo. Just like that acrobatic display the all blacks of Newzealand perform prior to any rugby match. Udo is peace in Igbo.

"Atilogwu udo" is actually an oxymoron. You don't perform a war dance for peace. The army is passing a salient message.
