"Boko Haram terrorists have a hard time understanding the jig is up. After losing hundreds of fighters in recent weeks, some Boko Haram commanders figured it was a good idea to attack an army base. The attack underscored the illusion of Boko Haram commanders.

Boko Haram insurgents attacked the base in their classic style. Dozens of fighters attacked from four points simultaneously, firing mortars and RPGs, hoping to overwhelm the defenders and overrun the base.

Remember this was the same tactics used in their attack on the Gudun Bali Base last Friday. The @HQNigerianArmy was not gonna fall for this again.
They allowed the insurgents close in on the base before engaging. Call for aerial support was delayed to give the attackers a false sense of security.

Nigerian troops reinforced the base with orders not to fire their weapons and reveal their position.

It must have felt too easy because the wary insurgents attempted to set up defensive perimeter in a village called Arkuma but changed their mind.

Turns out the insurgents had been firing on mostly empty structure all along. Nigerian troops opened fire from well

concealed positions up close, making their RPGs useless. In their confusion the insurgents attempted to fight their way out the ambush but were picked apart.

At 6pm seeing the battle was lost, the insurgents attempted to salvage defeat by attacking the village of Arkuma.
They mounted on 15trucks & approached the village frm diff directions simultaneously to wreak havoc.

This was when helicopter gunships swooped low & made minced meat of the convoy. Many of them who survived the strike & ran towards the village on foot were cut down by snipers."
Nigeria shall not be terrified by terror!

Nigeria will definitely prevail!!

I bring you good tidings (may be bad for you) @HURIWA_NIGERIA. I want to inform you that for the past eight years, the people of RAFI LOCAL GOVT, KAGARA, NIGER STATE have been batting with incessant attacks by bandits, cattle rustling
kidnapping for ransom and unprovoked arson.
These cases were duly reported to appropriate authorities.

What interest the good people of the area is that none of the #HumanRightsWatch either spoke for or sympathize with us, in any form or at any occasion.

@GovNiger @SSGNGSG
Many villages and communities that were attacked fled to Kagara, the headquarters of the LGA as refugees. As a result of this bandits took over most of these villages & converted them as their places of abode with some few villagers who have connived them as informants and allies

Ordering a Pizza in 2022

Is this Pizza Hut?

No sir, it's Google Pizza.

I must have dialed a wrong number, sorry.

No sir, Google bought Pizza Hut last month.

OK. I would like to order a pizza.
Do you want your usual, sir?

My usual? You know me?

According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust.
Super! That’s what I’ll have.

May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes & olives on a whole wheat gluten-free thin crust?

This is to inform ABUJA travellers from Delta State that the Train service operates from Monday to Friday.

It leaves Udjevwu Station (for those travelling from Warri) at exactly 8am for Itakpe.
No African man time. Itakpe is before Lokoja.

It leaves Itakpe back to Udjevwu at 2pm.
The train stops at different stations to drop off and pick passengers. They have stations at Agbarho, Abraka, Agbor, Agenebode, etc.

The cost from Udjevwu (Warri axis) is N2,200 to Itakpe.

@ChibuikeAmaechi @OvieSheikh @ogundamisi
There are taxis at the Itakpe Station to take you to Abuja at a cost of N1,500 to N2,000 maximum.

A very comfortable ride I must say. You'd feel you are in a Plane. Which means if you're prone to cold, you should have your Sweater with you as it operates on a central AC.

My dear amiable @GovNiger @abusbello I was flipping thru #FotMob football application a while ago and saw Naija league being played without our darling #NigerTornadoes. After making enquiries I was told it went down into relegation 2yrs ago. I was also told that nepotism now
takes the center stage in selecting players for the Club.
This ordinarily means there is no year in sight for the Club to get back to play in the elite league. Also I heard that players were sold without making relevant replacements.
Oga sir, please do something.

We need to belong to where we rightly belong. The Management as well as the leadership of the supporters club needs to be closely watched. Ordinary administrative committee can't give you the desired reports to work on. Sir involving discreet investigators might be helpful here.
