A Nigerian man, whose sister-in-law, Dorathy Yohanna, was among the three Greenfield University students killed by bandits, has written a letter to the presidency.
Recall that three students of Greenfield who were abducted by bandits were found dead in Kwanan Bature village, a place close to the university.
The man identified as Yamai, via his Twitter page @Ydcoal, urged presidential aide, Tolu Ogunlesi, to talk to his boss about the state of insecurity.
According to him, there seems to be no purpose of life as the government had failed in fulfilling its sole responsibility to the people.
His tweets read, “Hi @toluogunlesi, my sister-in-law was among the three dead students from Greenfield University. We are all trying to unpack our feelings. People’s children have become sports for bandits and kidnappers.
“I am very angry right now because there’s just so much I don’t understand anymore. What’s the purpose of life as a Nigerian? What’s the sole responsibility of a government for/to the people?
“I’m being marginalised as a Christian in my state. I go elsewhere and I’m being stereotyped. Today, my sister is dead. I cannot for the life of me imagine what she went through in the hands of these evil men before her untimely death. Can you? How do I comfort my wife?
“How can a mother bury her child? What’s the purpose of thoughts and prayers? Do we deserve to live and die like this in our own country? Do you understand why some of us choose to be “slaves” elsewhere than “kings” at home?”
“The pain is unbearable. Everyone deserves the benefit of doubt, but do you think this government still deserves any? I need answers. They still have about twenty more kids with some to be killed tomorrow if they don’t get what they asked for.
“Where do we go from here Tolu? Do we worry about tomorrow? Do we believe in a fair, just and righteous God? My mother-in-law hasn’t eaten or showered in 3 days since her daughter, whom she saw on Monday, got kidnapped & this death was the answer to her prayers.
“You’re not the president, I know, but please talk to your boss. The evil we do or our negligence surely does come around one way or the other. That’s the circle of life. Do something!! Bless you!!” He added.
Tolu, responding, offered his condolences to the bereaved.
”I’m so sorry to hear this Yamai. My deepest condolences,” he wrote.
