The son never had slightest idea when he woke up yesterday that he will be fatherless today.
May the soul of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.

God, We’ve Lost Enough Men to Insurgency!
I saw the pictures of the Nigerian troop ambushed by Boko Haram yesterday and my heart bled. They were burnt alive in their vehicle.
It was a horrible sight. Only one officer escaped into the bushes. Others who tried to escape were hacked down while the rest were burnt out. They will never let you see those pictures. They are exclusive to me.
This is sad. Government needs to save the lives of our military men. It is becoming one loss too many. Yet, these men are not giving up the fight despite the limitations they are grappling with.
A soldier, who is in the line of fire, said to me that they have continued to die, because of the selfishness of the leadership and was further troubled, knowing that the war is not ending any time soon.
He wrote: “Fighting a fight that is not ready to end bcos of selfish interest of some individual.”
Much as I think our problem is man made, God, why not intervene in your own way? Stop this carnage and restore Nigeria. Please, Lord??????
