With Boko Haram’s surprise spread to Abuja, there was the convenient allegation the insurgency was sponsored to destabilize the Goodluck Jonathan administration.
Otherwise, who, apart from soldiers and armed police, could have saved the congregation and two priests lately massacred in a church in the same Benue State?

Do these senators understand the meaning and circumstances leading to the declaration of emergency?
