    This Chris Olukolade cannot be trusted, his report should be verified to be correct. The military should replace him with somebody that will report quality and verifiable information.

      Are you for real? Where are you evidence? It’s very cheap to make unfounded allegations! Shame on enemies of Nigeria both internal and external enemies! God is watching over Nigeria, this rain will be over soon.
