This is how the story ends

Focused military action has been ordered on Boko Haram strongholds. It's the only responsible thing to do, after the extended campaign of death and destruction attributed to the group.

Hopefully, in this time of battle, many of the "jihad-fighters" and only few of the innocent will lose their lives. Hopefully too, some rebuilding and reconciliation can resume afterwards, resulting in a better life for Nigeria's northerners, southerners, and all people of all faiths. Aaamin.

I will take an extended, maybe infinitely long, break from posting on this blog. 
Please see previous posts in the Boko Halal universe.
