Even if 2000 people wer not massacred in a week, d fact remains that at least 10 people get massacred whenever they perpetrate their evil acts. A life is a life worthy of not being killed and this boko haram menace has 2 stop.

Lets keep at it ok,when these animals are done in the north,they'll progress downward.

Thank you piers for bringing the worlds attention here.hopefully our leaders will heed one day.my industry giants that can raise billions for a campaign yet look on as our fellow citizens in the army are being massacred cos the government budgets and announces billions for them but they don't get the promised firepower,

Busy forwarding their political ambition. They will soon have no country to govern, no country to loot.

There should be no elections in Nigeria till the Boko Haram menace is tackled.

GEJ and his incompetent ministers etc should hand over to an Interim council immediately with the number one priority to save the political entity called Nigeria before it is too late

Mich said...

The government cares about the same way they do for the names of each star in the galaxy.
But then again,Pierce,I wouldn't exactly call the Rwandan case an act of Terrorism going by the definition of Terror acts...what happened in Rwanda was a clear case of ethnic cleansing as is common in most African countries.
If you call the Rwandan genocide an act of Terrorism,then its safe to refer to both the world wars as terror acts too.
Semantics!

Whether 2000 or less, they have massacred more than enough. This is caused by hungry,greedy,blood sucking individuals in the quest for power and wealth.

Anthony Dugbo said...

That Rwanda genocide was catastrophic and should not be repeated. They are obviously paying lip service to boko haram cos govt business can still go on. Its time to act fast cos if such is a daily occurrence in other parts of the country then consider Nigeria a foregone entity?

God bless you Piers Morgan. Two terrorist goes to an office the who world stood still.

Linda it's mostly APC propaganda as per these attacks

The same cabal that wanted to pretend yaradua was alive in 2010 want Jonathan voted out so power can return to north ahead of 2017 oil block licensing.

But many Nigerians are wise now, they will still vote Jonathan.

Damn those bloodsuckers.

Buhari doesn't need to be president to call on his brothers to drop their weapons.

Bonita Bislam said...

Linda its not about the figures.This guy is really pained about the ongoing genocide going on in the north east.The world powers need to wade into it.GE's specialty clearly isnt in security

REAL DANIELs said...

If the problem of this country persist for another four years. I wouldn't blame GEJ, OBJ or our past leaders. I pour my anger on the youths. Because we paved way for the continuity of evil doers. That's my final say on political matters on this blog.

Linda what do you mean by were 2000 really massacred? Is that the issue? Whether it's 2 or 200 or 20, lives are wasting and people like you seat still and ask silly questions! *hiss.

Linda, the number doesn't matter? That shouldn't be the question to be asked at this time. Even if it's one person? Haba! 2000 oooooo or 2 oooooo, it doesn't marra. Life is life! Should we now wait till 2000 people are really massacred?! Hia

it is pure genocide, we all choose to look elsewhere because its Jonathan that is the president and its not happening to us directly, it happened in Rwanda, where a particular tribe tried to erase the other tribe completely. lets us all join hands and condemn the activities of these monsters, in France the authority was able to conquer because of support from the public, lets also act fast.

Linda I wonder too, that figure is astounding, it is beyond comprehension! thank you piers Morgan. Even without external help the government could do alot more, including fishing out the sponsors, properly equipping the soldiers, effective & relentless border surveillance & a lot more. the culture of corruption & 'me first' syndrome is hampering the half-hearted efforts of the government. May the good Lord see us through.

Baga Massacre: Nigeria Matters; Africa Matters: Black People Matters

Although the recent killings in Paris, France, are horrible, but in one day in Baga, Nigeria, Boko Haram carried out its deadliest attack and massacred over 2,000 Nigerian people. Thhere is no international outrage. Boko Haram slaughtered over 2,000 human beings, not insects, in a single attack. How come there is no worldwide condemnation of the massacre happening daily in Northern Nigeria? Will God have to descend from heaven before Nigeria gets from the international and stop the killings? I condemn the killings in Paris, but it looks like the international community and the international media have forgotten Nigeria. Those cowards and awful and repulsive creatures called Boko Haram murdered the elderly, children and women.


"Nigeria massacre deadliest in history of Boko Haram." - Amnesty International.

"@khayadlanga: Boko Haram may have killed 2000 people in Nigeria, but the world's media is focusing on Paris where 12 people were killed."

"@khayadlanga: The way the media is treating what happened in Paris vs what Boko Haram is doing in Nigeria shows that Africa does not matter to the media."

"@streakley: The news is "what is new." Out of bigotry, we expect calamity in Africa, but not Paris. So, crudely, it's "NEWs."

"@Snowgooose: Africa doesn't count and black lives are cheap. Media focus is fickle. Only reason Ebola gets coverage is because of westerners."

"@aandiswaa: maybe it's time the African media & people of Africa make a loud noise about the problem in Nigeria."

"@Lerato_LB: Even ebola. People from other countries were cured when thousands were dying in Africa."

"@Cnovuyo_M: Crazy part is that most of the African Media is also leading with the Paris incident instead of Nigeria."

The question is, do Nigerians know how many of us have been killed by terror under GEJ? If you polled your bvs, how many would put the end of terror over electricity and money on their list of wants? GEJ is complacent over insecurity and we as citizens have followed suit.
We may not know how capable GMB will be against terror but we know very well how incapable GEJ is.

The fool who blames every govt before his and doesn't think he should do anything . The fool who came out and declared that boko haram is in his govt but refused to do anything about it bicos he doesn't want anyone to die. Yet he is busy siphoning money from the treasury to sponsor his return campaign and openly turning blind eyes to the situation under his nose.

Leave foreigners alone bicos every govt looks out for their national benefit (national interest), except Nigeria.
