Shettima donates N14 million to Boko Haram suicide bombing victims


Borno Governor Kashim Shettima

Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima yesterday donated N14 million to residents that lost their property during last week’s Boko Haram suicide bombings in Maiduguri, the state capital.

The cash compensation was given to owners of four vehicles, mostly petroleum tankers, which were torched when two teenage female suicide bombers detonated their strapped Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) near the NNPC depot on Damboa road.

Shettima also yesterday announced a N200million loan facility for members of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) to assist them boost their businesses, which were negatively affected by Boko Haram insurgency.

Shettima made the pledges when he visited the scene of the blast that occurred on Friday last week, while he was out of the country for the Oslo conference in Norway.

He implored victims of insurgency to bear the pains caused by the incident, saying God destined it so.

    Yakubu Gowon is never peaceful as quoted but violent, he caused the war of 1967 which did not end in 1970 but end now, Republic Of Biafra is the Victor- no longer no victor no vanquished. Gowon caused the war by his refusal to Respect the Aburi agreement- the Diplomacy Peaceful Solution.If he is intelligent like Ojukwu, he would have know that the component of the Aburi Agreement is the intellectual solution base on backgrounds of the natives. But as puppet of Britain, he refused to Respect the Aburi agreement, caused the war and paid the price to date: Shettima put it simply- the north is the laughing stock. The west who followed Awolowo for the war has also paid their own price to date. The Official Declaration Of Republic Of Biafra Is March 15. 2017: Another Aburi Peaceful Diplomacy. Any from west and north who do not Respect that, will be Crushed in BIAFRAN REVOLUTION WAR. God Is With Us!!!
