My stats are coming up. It’s a good feeling to see my stats come up after a very long time of inactivity. For some time now my site was low on views, though it still registered trickles of views and visitors. Recently it has been very high with me posting a lot of stuff, interesting stuff, I hope.
I got up from bed not too long ago and I’m just surfing around my tab, just before prepping for work. My eye has caught some news on Channels Television. So I’m just scrolling on Channels TV twitter handle @channelstv and I’m seeing some headlines, some catchy, some not so catchy.
Military, Insurgents Lock Horns In Jakana, Borno State
*Sigh* you know most times I wonder, some years past, the northern part of Nigeria used to be this peaceful vast place; vast lands where you could just travel and have fun. But these days, about eight years counting, it’s been just insurgents, terrorism, bandits, the list goes on. It forces you to ask, who’s behind this uprising? Is it a person, or persons, or movement?
A fierce gun battle between operatives of the Nigerian military and insurgents in Jakana village of Borno State has thrown villagers and travellers into a panic…channels Television
Borno State is the farthest North-eastern state in Nigeria, sharing border with Yobe State on the left, Adamawa State below, and Gombe State on the bottom left.
It’s crazy, you know. Every day I read the news and it’s like this insurgency just never stops. It appears that right now in Nigeria, only the South is functioning, and that’s because the South has made it clear, “Look, don’t bring that shit to us cos we not going to take it.” That’s why the southern parts of Nigeria are relatively more peaceful. Though there are a few attacks steaming up in the South-West these days, but they are being curtailed drastically.
Pray for Nigeria, guys, we need the whole of Nigeria to be peaceful and not just some parts.
