    I sumtimes wonder wat kind of brain sum of diz Muslims hv. Hw can a locomotive thg knwn as human being with brain stuck into d skull agree 2 die like dat along with others? Don’t dey hv conscience? Don’t tel me dat dey force dem 2 kill cos i won’t buy it at all. God y? Breadwinners re being killed, pillars of d house re being shattered in d name of politics. God where re u?

      These people who carry out such heinous acts are not Muslims. I doubt if the government or highly placed persons doesn’t have a hand in this.

    What is happening? Why the sudden leash of terror between yesterday and today? Earlier today, it was a case of a suicide bomb going off in Yobe. Now, later it is happening again in Kano. Is there something the government is not telling its citizens? Who do we ask all these questions? God….In your mighty hands, we seek protection. I don’t even know what to say anymore….i’m tired of typing R.I.P to the dead.

    This bombing! bombing!! bombing!!!
    Have designed my mouth to be speechless, but what am yet to understand is the gain they drived from it and those sucide bombers who are not kids that is being forced to go and donate bombs if i was ask i will say that their brain have expired because i can’t see the reason why a normal and able human can agree with such an act.
