I woke up to news of Terrorists attacking Kuje prison in Abuja. Terrorists attacked president Buhari’s advance convoy in Katsina. Terrorists killed 2 policemen in Katsina. All this happened in one day. The level of insecurity in Nigeria is really very bad. This is Buhari’s job!

If bandits can attack the Presidential convoy with no fear at all, there's a big problem in the land.
President Buhari treated these bandits with kids' gloves.
No one is safe.

We condemn in strong terms, the attack on our Dear President's convoy.
We urge the president & his aides to be law abiding, go about their normal business & never take laws into their own hands.
Rest in Peace

It's funny how News outlet still call them bandits, the truth is bandits don't have the balls to attack the most guarded prison in Nigeria ( Kuje) nor does it have the capacity to attack President Buhari 's convey. They are Terrorists and not Bandits. Nobody is safe anymore!

While we condemn in strong terms, the dastardly attack in Kuje Prison, & the attack on our Dear President Buhari’s convoy by the Boko Haram, we urge the president & his aides to be law abiding, & go about their normal business. We urge them not to take laws into their hands.
