Isiguzoro, said that President Buhari to watch the daily kidnap of Nigerians, invading villages and disruption of property, killings of civilians and now soldiers by Boko Haram members was uncalled

He added that great threat facing the security in Nigeria is the alleged recent rate of corruption amidst top military officers, because they have no reason to give that for eight years they are still fighting Boko Haram.
