has been the number one goal of Boko Haram to set us against each other by

way of religious violence so that they hide while we kill each other.

authentic. This is contrary to claims by some mischief makers including an

article by a Nigerian Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode who

promoted false allegations that Borno State Government paid Boko Haram

ransom to free Muslims from the abducted schoolgirls.”
