You may describe Isa Pantami as a conservative salafi but to claim he was a BH supporter?”.

Aikay Onyeji said, “They’ve pressured U people & probably paid U people to retract something that’s true. We all know someone high up in government is agent 2 Boko Haram. Army always complain of being ordered to withdraw when close to inflicting a major blow on BH. We all know you’re lying continue”.

A certain user with the name Emir of Aba said, “I can hear the wails in Aba, Nwewi, Arochukwu & Owerri, desperately wishing story is true. We Igbos will believe a lie w/o evidence against Nigeria before believing a Truth with evidence for Nigeria, for we’re a people who have mortgaged our collective brains for a plate of Akpu”.

With the poor security system in Nigeria. Someday, someone is going to hack into the Government’s database and reck havoc on the entire nation”.
Someone with the name Iwobi said, ” The craziest reality behind all these findings is that nothing would be absolutely done. No investigation or unseating. That’s the clear message that we are being ruled by the same terrorist we’re fighting against as don’t get me started of our weak crumbling institutions that can’t even looking into messes like these”.
Someone just said, “When 🇳🇬Government started saying your NIN is more important than your BVN,I knew they re up to something.🤔”.

What other evidence do we need to conclude that APC is a terrorist party?”.

A terrorist with our data is very dangerous and unacceptable!”.
