Borno Governor Kashim Shettima depressed over latest Boko Haram massacre, says its a setback

Published

on

The latest Boko Haram attack on an oil exploration team in Borno has sent the State Governor, Kashim Shettima, into depression. Shettima said the attack is a setback in the ongoing anti-insurgency war.
In a statement issued on Thursday, July 27, by his spokesman, Mallam Isa Gusau,
the Governor saluted the gallant soldiers and members of the civilian
Joint Task Force (JTF) who lost their lives in the attack.

He said, “I
haven’t been my normal self since I received information of that
attack. What happened in the first instance was a tragic setback in the
fight against Boko Haram and in Nigeria’s effort to expand its economic
fortunes.
“I am deeply pained by this incident especially coming at a time when we were beginning to pick up the pieces of our lives.
“Even
though the attack should never have happened given the successes
recorded by the military and the multi-national joint forces since 2015,
I nonetheless still deem it necessary to commend the military for
re-mobilising and countering the initial gains of the insurgents.”
On
Tuesday, July 25, the oil workers were reportedly ambushed by the
terrorists at Magumeri in Gubio Local Government area of the state.
Many of them, including soldiers and JTF members, were killed in the attack while others were abducted.

It was gathered that the military reinforced and hunted the terrorists – they killed some and rescued the abducted oil workers.
But sadly, about 48 corpses – 18 Soldiers, 15 Civilian JTF, five University of Maiduguri staff and four NNPC drivers were reportedly recovered from the scene of the ambush.
It was learnt that six persons who were wounded in the attack but escaped to somewhere in Yobe State were later found dead.
All the corpses arrived Maiduguri Teaching Hospital on Thursday.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
