It is evidently clear that the Nigeria Army is not a security personnel for Nigeria citizen any longer, but a death trap for the citizens. How did the Boko Haram knows that people have reported to the Nigeria Army and why do they know they should come in the uniform?
In a place like Nigeria, where terrorist alert is high, should the Nigeria Army take any information with levity?
Is Nigeria turning to another Iraq or Afghanistan? This and more we all hope will be answered soon
