Boko haram killed a pastor. Boko haram killed students. Boko haram impregnated leah sharibu And this country goes on like nothing happened My uncle relocated to the US few years ago.. He said when he dies Nobody should bring his body back I thought he was mad. Na me no get sense – @Nig_Farmer
What happened to Leah Sharibu is more that persecution, this is a RAPE, an abuse, future theft and destiny perversion. If you are yet to understand the gravity of leadership in a nation and why people must not be tribal and emotional in their choices, Leah Story is enough. 😭 – @ayemojubar
On this Leah Sharibu issue, let’s call a spade a spade. The government FAILED! Which one is “we failed her as a nation”? Call out the government for their failure and stop making it sound mild by saying “we” failed her. what should the ordinary citizen have done? – @sam_adide
Adamawa CAN Chairman was beheaded. A 20year old student got shot dead. Now the news is Leah Sharibu has had a baby for a top commander in boko haram after being forced to become a Muslim. Kidnap. Rape. Religious extremism. Terrorism. Murder. This country is heartbreaking. – @DrOlufunmilayo
If you depend on our country Nigeria, to fight your battle, it’s obviously a wrong decision, and i can assure you it won’t fly. Leah Sharibu, your country failed you, her people failed you too. Sending love and light your way. I strongly hope you will be free someday.🥺 – @holudaray
