Trash report cooked up by corrupt service chiefs as usual.

You don't need to present any useless report card for Nigerians to feel safe and feel the impact of your presence as security agents.

But here in Nigeria, all service chiefs and security administrators at all levels are feeding fat on the insecurity situation by providing overbloated budgets for the senile dementia suffering old man in aso rock to sign.

Meanwhile, the mumu youths and adults of this and previous generations are battling hard to ensure another old senile dementia suffering kleptomaniac wins presidential election in Nigeria.

Suffering and smiling. Nigerians when will you all open your eyes and see that you and your children will always suffer the consequence of voting useless leaders?

Many terrorists arrested @ all fronts where they have wrecked unimaginable havoc but only few are killed. Meanwhile, BH/ISWAP are still taxing locals in Yobe, Borno, Niger, Zamfara, Kaduna states.Continue to deceive yourself.

Why 2 weeks na?

Or we missed the previous ones?

Naija and wayo.

Except the terrorists arrested in the past are aiding the military to get to other terrorists, I don't see the point of arresting them, when they could just be executed right away.

Overall, someone already rightly said the solution to the whole banditry and terrorism thing is political than not.

Of course, what's the point of "neutralising" hundreds of them, only to have thousands recruited from the pool of wandering children?!

When you create distracting posts like this, people tend to lose interest in whatever you are marketing.

Why not create just one catchy design and post, alongside just your contact?!

It's annoying scrolling through comments and seeing a long roll of a single "comment"
