Celebrated comedian, Seyi Law took to his Instagram page to react to the death of a
10-year-old boy during the demolition Ekeukwu market in Imo state.
According to him, the government of Nigeria is making a monster out
of his people and that the bomb being built in the country will soon
explode with nowhere to run to.
This was probably the saddest picture I saw on the internet last week
and waited to hear the Governor’s reaction to the killing of unarmed
civilians during a demolition exercise, but I am still waiting. This is a
huge problem in Nigeria, we keep mute at the death of people and that’s
why Jungle justice prevails. No prosecution, No statement and the
family, friends and well wishers of the victims grow with vengeance in
The Government of this Nation make monsters out of his people and when
the day of reckoning comes, they will want to demonize them. Hmmmmm. The
bombs we are building in this Nation will someday explode and we will
have no where to run. Imagine the kind of seed they have sown in this
little girl. She might forgive, but forgetting will be very hard.
Our Government need to do more and the citizens have to be more vocal.
Silence, I maintain is not always golden. Our National time bomb is
ticking and our President is not so diplomatic in his statements,
issuing threats in a volatile situation instead of been persuasive. Just
my thoughts. God help us all.
