  1. I salute there gallantry at least they taught Nigerian soldiers how it is done. Our soldiers have failed us only to make frivolous claims with no shred of evidence that they killed 36 Boko Haram and recovered equipment, cache of arms and vehicles. But you know what the Nigerian army are trained to shoot and kill unarmed innocent protesters. What a shame!
