I received a broadcast on my phone that his wife went to Channels TV to protest that her husband can't sleep and is considering sucide. I don't  know how true it is but I think we should give him a break.  Read ruggedman's tweet after cut...

Former Lagos Governor Bola Tinubu backs amnesty for Boko Haram

While commiserating with the Emir of Kano in Kano yesterday over the attack on him and his convoy in January, former Lagos State governor Bola Tinubu made some controversial statements. He called for the granting of amnesty to some Boko Haram militants. Tinubu said:
For the innocent ones among them, there must be amnesty. We cannot fight a war in our own country against minor crimes and minor people. We would only end up multiplying these people by trying to use force against our own citizens. I therefore disagree with the President; they are not ghosts.
Are those people in prison ghosts? If they are, why are prison officials looking after them? Are JTF operatives fighting ghosts, do they possess magic power to see ghosts?”
But my question is this, how is this going to work out when the Nigerian government are claiming that Bokoharam is not a terrorist group rather they are a faceless group.# Hmmm nsogbu di#
