    Truly, we are saddened by this development. Innocent girls again? Why did the military allowed such porosity in that school within that zone? Who is to be blaimed in this situation and where is the evidence of the defeat of Boko Haram in the North East?    Stiil, why was there a stop order to retreat when the military were advancing towards the main leader who has now escaped? Big questions needing urgent answer. I think and suggesting a change in the High Military command is urgent and inevitable to win the war on Boko Haram. Let a Southern be tried to take over the command and this political war of defeated BH still operating will be over.   My greatest worry now is how and who is supplying them logistics like food, fuel and armories to still move and operate if the military and security forces are not compromising? Are they spirits buying foods, fuel and weapons from the spirit world?  One day for sure all these mysteries shall be unveiled and those behind secret deals shall and must be judged by God because we are praying to a God that answers prayers.
