The Pentagon announced the rescue of an American by United States Navy’s elite SEAL Team 6 on Saturday in Nigeria.
Nigerians have taken to twitter to comment over the development.
While many of the comments lampoon the Nigerian army for not living up to expectations in the country, some others hilariously praised the efforts of the US rescue team.
See reactions below:
How can Nigerian army who always call their own people bloody civilian rate us?. Look at how US Navy Seals flew to Nigeria just for one man who was kidnapped in Niger Republic & brought to ungoverned nigeria. I thought our borders was closed?

The Nigerian Military should be ashamed of themselves.
A US citizen was kidnapped on Tuesday in Niger, by Sunday they sent down their Elite SEAL team 6 for a successful hostage rescue Op killing all but one of the kidnappers.
We still can’t locate BH hideouts on our own soil.

U.S Navy SEAL killed 6 out of 7 potential graduands from University of Repentant Boko Haram and Banditry, I wonder why Buhari govt did not say anything.

One life, the US government sent a Navy Seal Team to rescue her citizen from the hands of a terrorist group.
That's a country that understands the value of a life but in one week, we have lost more than 70 lives in Nigeria, you are not allowed to shout cos it's not patriotic.

US Navy Seals will find you even if you were hidden under a tree.
Their speciality in covert operations is 2nd to none..they smoked out Osama.
In the meantime,let’s continue to enjoy the Terrorism meted out by Shekau&Fulani Herdsmen.
Buhari’s disgrace has gone Int’l.
I❤️ IT !
