My #arewa #sokoto story
Oct 1999, during our break team in Federal primary school Sokoto, a lady with blood all over her body ran into our school, few minutes a group of about 200 boys welding machetes,clubs, stones and daggars stormed but was rebutted by our strong gate,Part 1
Our head mistress rang the alarm and the school went crazy with tears as I scampered to look for my kid sis @queen_bella0 and bright. I saw them crying in the chaos and I had to be the big bro. In few minutes my dad drove to our school dressed in #arewa buba. I saw death, Part 2
The distance between my school and water board road I saw children beheaded, I saw pregnant women ripped apart, I saw people being burnt alive , it still hunts me. My friend in the street saw me entering our house and signaled that he'll kill me, Part 3
Our neighbor took us into his flat and our flat was ransacked at that time my dad has prayed the last prayer with us his family but our neighbor lied to them that we have left for the barracks that's why saved us . I lost friends and class mates, my dad lost all his shops part 4
We had to relocate to the south and I am seeing the same event happen again. May God protect the non Muslims in Sokoto.
The deaths will not be accounted for and the government will turn deaf ears. I will not forget the sorrow, hardship and horror Sokoto brought to my family.
Northern Nigeria killed the boy child in me.
Can we have lasting peace in northern Nigeria.
