After withstanding several days of intimidation by some unidentified Nigerian soldiers around his Ikoyi home in Lagos, has put two large banners mocking the soldiers and whoever sent them:

The big banners, with the same message were found around his home Friday morning, with the message: This is not Sambisa Forest : wrong Posting.

Sambisa was the hiding place of Boko Haram in Borno State that Nigerian military at a stage dreaded to attack, in the festering war against Boko Haram.

Hoping the military authorities will understand the message: face war against the insurgents, leave the armless civilians alone
