  1. It is true the residents surrounding sharada phase 1&11 are South Easterners they are minorities tribe mainly from North and some few Yoruba’s dominated the area.

  2. I WONDER WHY U PEOPLE WANT TRIBELISED ANY THINGS, THE PREDOMINANTS PEOPLE LIVING AT SHARADA ARE MUSLIMS AND HAUSA WHY U DONT WANT NORTH &SOUTH HAVE SOME PEACE. SAY GOOD OR REMAIN SILENT

  3. I tot a confession was made from a repented ex-boko haram leader abt sponsors and he mentioned some names. Wot is the presidensy doing abt it? This boko haram has been trained and brain washed for a long tym now and npf can’t do anything unless the are taken care of from the root

  4. Proponents of doom or d enemies of a united Nigeria are at work again ! Who tell u say sharada phase 1- 3 is dominated by south easterners? That`s a mischievous lie meant to evoke sentiments. Pls always be factual not presenting concocted lies to mislead d reading public. Be a proponent of a united NICERIA. Mr Bolekaja journalist.

  5. this devils should tell us what they want. since some prominent men has been fingered, i’ll suggest they are arrested not minding the implication on the unity of this contry, after all, what is unity without peace and security

  6. @B.Sheikh Nobody does not want north and south together at peace, bt ur religious leaders(ISLAM) are preaching HATERED to u pple anginst pple from the south,so TELL me WHO DOES NOT WANT PEACE BTW NORTH and SOUTH?

  7. How I wish I had obamas number I wud have called him to start 2012 war on terrorism with the boko haram chief sponsors since our dear president is scared of doing it…

  8. Hey!!!! It’s cruel for anybody to give the impression of sharada as an area dominated by south easterners. The police station in sharada, an industrial area has been attacked! Pure and simple. I just wonder what these silly insinuations are intended to achieve. These references to easterners, southerners etc potray a myopic understanding of the whole issue and a mischievous intention on the part of the reporters. After all, more Muslims have been killed in the various attacks than could have been imagined. But these are not worth highlighting by your reporters. Nigeria and Nigerians are facing a challenge and we must put our heads together to find a solution. Period.

  9. No matter how our northern brothers want it spinned, the truth is that Northern Nigeria has always been a killing field. They are also responsible for the underdevelopment of Nigeria having been leading since 1960. They have put Islam to shame by practising a brand of Islam that will make Osama Bin Laden envious. Soon, they will harvest death from the seed of violence they’ve sown. Boko will destroy them and free Nigerians.

    We are praying for Nigeria to break up and you are busy hoping to “unite” a disintegrated country. Look at yourself, for example, you look different from the Southerners, eat different food, wear different clothing, have different religion, speak different language. Where’s the similarities? If Soviet Union and even Sudan can break up why not Nigeria? We need to break up soon and not later, my friend.

      • It is obvious with what is happening now that the project Nigeria can no longer continue as before.since the leaders in the north are the ones breaking it.GÊJ if you know what is good for you,YOU BETTER FACILITATE THE BREAK UP.IT IS OBVIOUSLY THE ONLY SOLUTION
