“Boko Haram represents the ultimate Fatwa of our time. The question is does the sect’s Fatwa represent the articulated position of the majority of Muslims in this nation? My reading over the last few years is an unambiguous no. We are undergoing an affliction that many could not have imagined about a decade ago. Let us confront the ultimate horror now. To remain inactive at this moment is to betray our children and to consolidate the ongoing crimes against our humanity. We must take the battle to the enemy…We sent our children to school; we must bring them back to school.” – Wole Soyinka
IF YOUR DAUGHTER OR SISTER WAS AMONG THE OVER 200 GIRLS WHO WERE KIDNAPPED BY #BOKOHARAM LAST 14 DAYS WHILE THEY WERE IN SCHOOL, WON’T YOU DO SOMETHING SO THAT THE GOVERNMENT AND INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY WILL ACT QUICKLY TO #BRINGBACKOURGIRLS…NONE OF US IS FREE UNTIL ALL OF US ARE FREE!

Can we say the same of our HYPOCRITICAL LOVERS OF BLOODSHED??? Can Govt stop Millions of Yam Sellers? Orange Sellers? etc from being LOYAL to their ogas at the top who have impoverished them for years and then use them to BOMB INNOCENT NIGERIANS because they want power to return to the north?????
“There are people in power in certain parts of the country, leaders, who quite genuinely and authoritatively hate and cannot tolerate any religion outside their own,” “When you combine that with the ambitions of a number of people who believe they are divinely endowed to rule the country and who… believe that their religion is above whatever else binds the entire nation together, and somehow the power appears to slip from their hands, then they resort to the most extreme measures.
“Youths who have been indoctrinated right from infancy can be used, and who have been used, again and again to create mayhem in the country”
“Those who have created this faceless army have lost control.”
