Until i see those planes fly overhead and actually drop bombs on the insurgents thou will not believe we have fighter jets. Or is it the old model planes that our military showcased for us on that independance day celebration where our parachutists embarrassed us by not being able to control their chutes and landing in the stands? Please o, because asides our juju wielding foot soldiers that we all know are a formidable force in Africa, i don’t think we have any other power from air or sea.
i hope they know jet planes don’t manage fuel sha? Toh
They shouldn’t drop bombs that will not blow o! We can buy anything in this country. They probably acquired second-hand bombs from Russia. It shouldn’t be another oppurtunity for the world to laugh at us once again.
Well, the military has vowed that the operation will “rid the nation’s border territories of terrorist bases”.
“The entire Nigerian military is involved in this operation, including the air force,” defence spokesman Brigadier General Chris Olukolade said.
“A force of “several thousand” soldiers along with fighter jets and helicopter gunships have been deployed for the offensive in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa state” he added.
The operation is the largest against Boko Haram since 2009, when soldiers flooded Borno’s capital Maiduguri, killing more than 800 people and forcing the insurgents underground for a year.
This should be a welcome developement if they get it right. Though the move itself is welcome and long overdue.
But why don’t they tackle poverty, illiteracy which leads to the insurgency which their unbelievable corruption has caused? Abi because reports say about 70% of nigerians live under $2 a day? That might be a better news to their ears than $1 a day, so to them we’re still doing fine as a nation and the insurgents are the menace. Ok o.
Let me watch sha.
when i said “Until i see those planes fly overhead…” i meant on-screen o.
