The war seems to be an endless one

Comforting our Military has found its mojo after a lacklustre outing and turned the tide against #BokoHaram. The military must not relent but sustain the tempo. It's not enough to just win the war; the remote and immediate causes of terrorism must be addressed.

Nigerians Unite Against Terrorism and Insurgency. Be resilient! See something, hear something, say something. Say no to TERRORISM.
