I lost my sanity. I almost committed suicide. All thanks to the creative world
Till now, I feel those messages of “ YOUR FLAGS WONT WORK, STAY AT HOME” were just a way to stop me. Till now, I am traumatized each time I drive pass the toll gate. Till now, I still ponder on this date and a part of me feels it was a dream
“So many things in my head as regards that ugly night, So many questions I want to ask our leaders, So many questions I want to ask the youths in politics, So many questions I want to ask the police men, So many questions I want to ask the soldiers, So many questions I already know I won’t get responses to 😢😢😢
No matter how ruthless you are in your quest for power and money,always remember this “ you came to this world with nothing and you’ll leave with nothing. I pray for the souls of the innocent citizens we lost on 20/10/20 to Rest In Peace.
I pray for God’s intervention in our Country, touch the heart of everyone, especially those in position to effect the positive change we’ve been clamoring. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾”.
