Following the killings of six Nigerian military personnel by unknown persons in the Okuama community of Delta State and the invasion of the community by some military personnel who are on a revenge mission to avenge the death of their colleagues who were allegedly killed by unknown gunmen.

Different stories have emanated from the community over what led to the death of the Nigeria military personnel unlike the propaganda being peddled by the Nigeria military that their personnel went for peacekeeping in the community and got ambushed by the youths and killed,  residents of Okuama community has it that the Nigeria military came to their community to abduct their leaders, following their refusal to allow them to abduct their leaders after a brief meeting with them, the military personnel then opened fire on them, in the process of the military personnel returning back to their barrack after killing more than twenty people, the soldiers met their Waterloo, as they were ambushed by unknown gunmen who then opened fire on them.

Why is it only in the Eastern region that the Nigerian military derives joy in flexing its military might?

on several occasions Fulani jihadist terrorist has brought down military fighter jets and killed numerous military personnel in many parts of the north but most recently in Niger State where they shot down their jet and killed over 23 military personnel. 

We didn't see the Nigeria Military set ablaze the communities where these terrorists occupied to carry out their activities as they did in Okuama community Delta state and other places in the East, especially in Imo state and Anambra state. 

The Nigerian army doesn't always show professionalism when they come over to any part of Biafraland, they kill innocent youths for a crime committed by unknown gunmen, and they burn down villages just because they were attacked by unknown gunmen who probably are not even from the said community, town or village. They should stop twisting the whole story of the Okuama community to justify their reprisal attacks, setting people's homes on fire is a sign of weakness on the part of the Nigeria military it shows a lack of intelligence and professionalism, the attitude of law enforcement agents violating the law in the name of enforcement has to stop in Nigeria, especially in Biafraland. Will setting the community on fire solve the problem?

Nigeria has become a lawless entity, where law enforcement agencies now violate every law.

If the Nigeria military is not corrupt and a willing tool in the hands of some corrupt politicians, why should the military whose primary responsibility as enshrined in the Nigeria Constitution is to guard and protect their citizens against external aggression, while the Police is for Internal aggression like the case of Okuama community be meddling Into land matters between two Communities which is the duties of the Nigeria Police force and the Court? 

The unprofessionalism and weaknesses displayed by the Nigerian military are well-noted by the International Community. 

The rate at which the Nigerian military takes the law into their hands is alarming, can't they be professional for once?

Why kill and destroy in a civil case? In as much as I condemn the killing of the soldiers and civilians in the Okuama community I believe the Nigerian military can use their possible mechanism to get those people who killed their personnel if only they are professionally intelligent.

The Nigeria military should know that they have nothing to do with internal aggression, they should kindly allow the police to do their job by vacating the Okuama community and channel the same force and energy they are using to kill civilians and destroy properties in the Okuama community to Boko Haram, Bandits, ISWAP and Fulani terrorist herdsmen who are all terrorists and are killing Nigerians daily.
