Boko Haram: Nigerians react to Shekau’s request for a soft landing

by Ayodeji Onibalusi

The Internet went agog on Friday, 17th of April after news filtered through the media that the leader of the Boko Haram terrorist group is requesting a soft landing from the Nigerian Armed Forces.

After an onslaught led by Chad’s President Idris Beby saw over 1000 members of the terrorist group killed, the Boko Haram faced another firepower from the gallant Nigerian Armed Forces.


The Chief of Army Staff (CoAS) of the Nigerian Army, Lieutenant General Buratia had vowed to remain in Borno until Boko Haram is wiped off, and it appears he’s living up to his words like a true soldier!

OYOGist.com recalls that a viral video showed the President of the Tchad country, Idris Deby purportedly instructing his men not to hand over captive Boko Haram members and weapons to the Nigerian army to avoid them been freed.

The Chadian ambassador to Nigeria later denied the video.


With the battle now seeing Boko Haram facing imminent defeat, the terrorist leader is said to be seeking a soft landing from Buratai.

If Shekau has the opportunity that Brutair has now what do you think he will do to our soldiers.

Again, there is nothing Nigeria army will do to Shekau and his followers, that can compensate the damage he did since 2009 to our army , infrastructure, children, Idp, value systems, etc. Etc. Etc.

Beware of Shekau’s surrender. Why make a villain famous in death? Think naija, think. He who has a tongue should count his teeth with it.
