IT IS SWEET TO DIE FOR ONE’S COUNTRY

IT IS SWEET TO DIE FOR ONE’S COUNTRY

Boko Haram is helping in countering the spurious propaganda of the Buhari-led government. They have now taken it upon themselves to make clips of their bloody victories. One of such clips, a horrific drama of mass death, is in circulation, scandalizing Nigerians and passing the disconcerting message that against the narrative of this untruthful government, Boko Haram is undegraded and waxing stronger.
