Nothing can persuade me not to align with the school of thoughts that posit that our rulers past and present are deliberately allowing the ISWAP, Boko Haram and their bandit brothers to Fester in Nigeria.
Every year we waste billions of dollars fighting an endless insurgency that we could have easily won .
The MQ-9 Reaper drone that was used to take out Soleimani by the US costs only $64million.
The aircraft is larger and more robust than its predecessor, the MQ-1 Predator, and is capable of annihilating targets with AGM-114 Hellfire missiles or other munitions.
What stopped the FGN of Nigeria from given the Americans a base in Abuja or Kano. Pay them $1bn and beg them to just deploy 10 of those drones to the NE and NW.
At its top speed of over 400km per hour, with its stealth features and the flat land of the NE and NW, they can easily be used take out convoys and camps of these terrorists undetected.
These remotely piloted killing machines can help us wipe off these criminals in the NE and NW.
We are not buying it because, America will not sell it. We shall just ask Odogwu Trump to lease it to us with its pilots for just one year .
Who is with me here ?
