  1. Where is the cease fire!

    • igbi says:

      which cease fire ?
      Next we will hear about ceaze fire with armed rubbers and rapists and cultists.
      Who in hell actually thinks there could be a “cease fire” with remorseless serial mass killers. Who thinks it is Wise to let terrorists armed with bombs to room the streats and walk our neighbourhoods because some one talked about a “cease fire”.
      Please Wake up.

    I wonder where the theory of Cease fire came from? I suspect it was a case of allowing some air during the Ramadan period, unfortunately we have giving BH more time to organise and regroup.
