    This is a welcomed development. Imho, this march should extend to the green zones(conflict-free zones) of the country.

        Bravoooooooooo Nigerian troops.
        This is a move in the right direction. May GOD unite Nigeria more more, and may He shame the enemies of unity.

        Viva Africa.
        Nigerian troops can do it, we don’t need external forces on our land.

        Advance, o ye warriors, torment the demons, pursue them, save our land from these parasites.
        May GOD protect our troops and their families.

    Death in The Lake chad for Boko haram Rats…

    A large number of terrorists have drowned in the Lake Chad as they fled the heavy bombardment by Nigerian Air force heralding the advance of Nigerian troops on mission to flush them out of Baga, the Nigerian defence headquarters has said.

    “Not even the strategy of mining over 1500 spots with land mines on the routes leading to the town could save the terrorists from the aggressive move of advancing troops,” the Director of Defence Information, Chris Olukolade, a Major General, said in a statement.

    He added, “All the land mines were skillfully cleared one after the other. Eventually, the resistance of the terrorists collapsed and the land forces finally stormed the town in the early hours of Friday.

    “Many of the terrorists died while an unknown but substantial number of them fled with various degrees of injury, in the series of encounter along the routes of advance of the as troops headed for Baga.

    “Apart from the 5 anti air craft guns and the rifles captured from the terrorists, over 34 motorcycles and 5 vehicles including trucks being used for operations by the terrorists were destroyed in the course of the fighting as troops headed for Baga. The troops finally began clearing the terrorists from Baga on arrival in the town early Saturday morning.

    “A comprehensive cordon and search phase of military operation has now commenced to enable troops mop up arms and ammunition and also apprehend any terrorist who might be hiding in the vicinity. The exercise will also determine details of the casualties inflicted or incurred in the course of the operations to clear Baga and environ of terrorists.

    “Similar exercise is being carried out in over 12 locations namely Gajigana, Ngaze, Ngenzai, Marte Junction, Mile 90, Yoyo, Kekeno, Kukawa, Cross Kauwa, Kangarwa, Amirari and other localities where troops have flushed out the terrorists in the operations preceding the entry to Baga. The troops are now dominating and conducting aggressive patrols in the locations. The morale of troops remain high.”

    the march should be international.

  4. Kola Adekola says:

    God Bless our troops.
    I will be there in spirit (not in Nigeria at the moment).

    May Nigeria always remember those who fell in battle for our peace and security.
    May God wipe the tears of the bereaved and bring succour to their hearts. The will always be held in the highest esteem as Nigeria’s hero’s.

    Kudos Gallant Soja!

    Hope the event is coordinated and covered very well.

    Military vets, bands squad or parade marching in front of the people will also be a good morale booster as well as serve as a bridge between the citizens and the military, the North and the South.

  11. Henry says:

    Lagosians, you guys shout come out en masse and support our Troops.

  12. Colloid says:

    Good. But it will be much appreciated if this could be made in all states so we can garner more support for them. Am presently not in Lagos, so i wont be coming but MY SPIRIT WILL BE PRESENT.

  13. Augustine says:

    All Lagos residents please join the TBS rally and march for Nigerian troops, they are dying for you and me in the face of Boko Haram bullets, please donate to their families that have lost their breadwinners on the battlefield.

  14. Augustine says:

    The should be a corresponding march in Northern Nigeria, maybe Kano or Katsina city. See the way Niger Republique, Cameroon, and Chad have done rallies and the people trooped out enmass to show the world that they love and support their soldiers, let Nigeria not be passive, let us show love and support for our military men and women…..yes women, several female soldiers died and several kidnapped by Boko Haram in the FOB attack on Baga last month, after which NA HQ decided to withdraw female soldiers from frontline combat zones.

    We have men and women who have bled and died for Nigeria, let us help their families, corporate donors and elites should raise funds, like we did for Obama who has done us no good in 8 years after Nigerians raised over =N= 100 million for ‘him’…..I mean for ‘Obama’.

    If we can go that crazy for a foreigner, let Nigerian rich and prosperous individuals and companies establish a fund for families of dead military men killed or missing in action during this Boko war, let CAN, NSCIA or other NGOs manage disbursement of the funds directly to the bereaved families NOT through any unreliable channel.

    Show all your support, for we will never forget those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for you and I to be be free, for the freedom to criticize them regardless of how little is known about them and their situation.For the freedom for some to play internet generals. We support you even though all your countless sacrifices will never be known. We praise you, love you, support you and most of all, are with you all the way.
    Break/ Freedom is not free, God Bless Nigeria. #marchforourtroops
