I might not trust the Nigerian Military on this one, but until Boko Haram Journalist himself provides alternative evidence of pictures of his actual Gwoza, I will have to accept the Nigerian Military version. After all we all agree that Boko boys have been thrown out of other areas of Borno

Since the NA became part of the misinformation on the Chibok girls, I lost interest in whatever they have to say. It is obvious our military is no longer credible.

Subomi said...

the guy sounds like he knows what he is talking about

talk2frankky said...

Abi this is abit suspicious because those pics are not pics of Gwoza. The only evidence of Gwoza recapture is that sign board inside gutter with someone supporting it from behind.
Someone should verify these claims and if this is indeed true then the nigerian army has definitely gone to the dogs.

Anonymous said...

This is really worrisome. I share the same reservation with this guy, because the sign post was sitting pretty in the gutter with a support from behind. Where i the dead Boko boys? You cannot recapture a town like Gwoza without a fight.

Time will tell.

Andreis God said...

@yusuf, why are you ranting? Salkida's observations are true. We can see it.but I think NA did not want us to observe that.if not, why are the soldiers holding the signboard behind?
CAN YOU EXPLAIN THAT?

princess said...

Get lost Sakilda ! Urutterances show that u r a Bh. NA. Shud get this guy behind bars

Anonymous said...

We need to verify the claim of the NA very well before we start celebrating an imaginary victory. I could see some object behind the signboard like someone's leg. All the same there is positive progress.

AFP has a video of Gwoza. Liberated Gwoza. If you don't believe our Army at least believe AFP.

Yusuf it's u that need the Glasses, bcos I seen 2 soldiers supporting the board.

U can help them to arrest him. This man said the true.

U should be in DSS custody for questioning by now. I don't know why its taking NA so long to arrest u. BH incarnate. I believe ur enjoying insurgency and supporter of Buhari who is to be buried today for losing again. May God bless GEJ, Nigeria and Army.

Jojo Urenna said...

Someone should verify. ? What are u waiting for. ..or are you not "somebody".gaaànn verify for us na .oshi

Anonymous said...

The BH are only beign repelled, they are still hanging out somewhere. If a town is recaptured how was is down by killing the BH or by chasing them away? We are yet to see corpses of BH from those captured towns and why is the NA not taking over some of the town liberated by the chadian soldiers from them? My spirit is telling me there is a big scam going on. Remember Mr president predicted that the last town will be captured on friday morning and it came to past without a hitch. Dont that speak volumes to someone?

U are a total idiot. Do they install signposts in gutters?

So bh uprooted the sign board and took it to another city Abi? Mr journalist get your facts right.

Shirley Shalokpe said...

True

Good Man said...

This is just common sense, when the insurgents capture a town They fly their flag, BUT when the Army recaptures back They replace the signs and flags....
UP NIGERIAN ARMY... UP NIGERIA.

All this nonsense is just to add to GEJ accomplishments. This is just one of several scams for campaign. Nigerians Vote Wisely.

Look behind the board/sign you'd see people supporting it

These journalists are also know for propagating false and over exaggerated news. No wonder he was arrested one time in Abuja. With this recent news of 500 women and kids abducted which has died a natural death!

They re-take or they don't mak no differences thereof dat d days of BH r numbered.

chidi on aglg said...

He is a journalist and a journalist is meant to present to the public facts and not questions.When a journalist throws silly questions that are meant to undermine the confidence and security of the people raising unusual sentiments,that we will call unprofessional.A picture of anywhere could be shown of anywhere as Gwoza and u can assume it to be true,but yet the fact that the military snaps behinds a signpost does not make them liars.Amongst the professionals of all fields the military are about the ones with the greatest integrity.They dont care about the media publicity for you to praise them.They dont make comments,make observations or make allegories to the people.All they owe you is protecting the integrity of the nation and they shut up their mouth even when they are dying in it.My dear journalist please only come out with a statement when you have credible facts and not ungrounded reasonings before you make a tweet or presentation to the public.You are a journalist and ur pen is ur tool,while their tool is the rifle.You do not take a bullet for the people but yet they take a bullet for us.respect them and give them the regards they deserve.God bless

Zikora said...

For once let us support NA and stop this accusations that instill fear in citizens! If this dude calls himself a journalist, let him go and confirm the said post by himself!

ColdFlame said...

Of course in war the first casualty usually is the truth and only an insane person'd expect every information coming out of these ongoing operations to be fact.
That said it is equally suspicious that the Nigerian military conveniently 'liberated' the last major town on the eve of elections exactly six weeks from the date of the postponement. Something just doesn't seem right...

Mtcheeeeew. Rubbish talk

Indeed, they are no longer credible

Let's attest to the truth wen we see it. Recapturing towns every other day. Abeg o,all dese towns dy r recapturing, whr dm boko boys cme dy? And to think d last town n headquarter of the boko haram was recaptured a day to election. Who is fooling who? All of a sudden d NA gaind Divine fine strength overnyt... God will help us o

towncrier said...

What kind of leader would you make? He has every right to ask questions as a Nigerian..... If you swallow everything ur told, u better go swallow cum....let NA show reasonable proof

Odubela Johnson said...

Full of Lie.No prove,where are the Pics of the boko haram's they Killed,they need to show us the Pics of the Village not only the entrance

Anonymous said...

Honestly I really don't know what this guy wants! He's been reporting for BH for God knows how long....and we are not even thinking there is a possibility of him being on their payroll!

Yet we are always quick to believe the NA are lairs... mind you we lost men in this struggle and the Fool of a journalist failed to acknowledge that fact...rather he ran away into exile and starts reporting rubbish....if he is doubting if gwoza was retaken then he should fly there to confirm himself...

And to all of us...it will be nice to do a background check on this salkida dude and draw some conclusions from there..

Boko Haram violence remains a political campaign tainted with religious cause by Northern Jihadists and APC.
Kidnap of Chibok girls was a political campaign executed to malign the incumbent government. 


The demise of Boko Haram is the worst nightmare of APC and its disgruntled members. Too bad you placed your election hopes on the misfortune of the nation. Your ill-wish had boomeranged! Shame to you!

Why can't these tribal liars appreciate the success recorded by the military in Gwoza? APC wish the siege over the Christian towns would continue. But it can't ...

APC should be the most irresponsible opposition in the world. They keep trying to make political gain out of Nigeria's challenge against terror. But their evil charm and propaganda have failed. . .
