You declared me wanted, charge me to court, if I am guilty of any crime, don’t apologize to me in private or spare me. Apologize publicly!
If you trade your rights and the rights of others just bcz you are in Govt or support Govt, one day, you and your friends in Govt will leave

I’m not the first and won’t be the last that will suffer injustice. In fact, I am lucky to be alive to speak out. It maybe you, tomorrow?
I’m not only angry bcz of the injustice done me, I’m angry bcz I can’t work, move freely, in & out of Nigeria to support my family anymore.
How I wish I can explain to my little kids age 2+ to 13, why I can’t go home and why they can’t see as yet. There is simply NO explanation.
The stigma of being associated with terrorism is worse than that of HIV/Aids, it’s even worse when you are unjustly linked with terrorism.
