A social media critic and activist, Aisha Yesufu recently took to her social media page on Twitter to reply to her follower that asked her to condemn the beheading of a member of the House of Assembly that was gruesomely killed in Anambra State. Aisha Yesufu said,
"Just days ago, you were gleefully supporting the barbaric lynching of a young lady and attacking me. Today you are on my TL because those you share ethnicity with have been brutally killed. A man was brutally killed and beheaded you didn't call me. You are the same as the killers!
Even some that were supporting that I should be killed are also coming to say I did not add voice. Do dead people speak? Assume I am in the grave already! Pathetic inhumane lots !"
Deborah's killing had one of the most reacted events in Nigeria this year, so much like the beheading of a member of the House of Assembly in Anambra State. Many Nigerians have condemned both killings as being barbaric. And that is why the follower of Aisha Yesufu had called on her to condemn the beheading of the member also.
Ordinarily, a true Nigerian is supposed to support the Nigerian govt in arresting illegal entry to Nigeria by foreigners but that is not the case here. Most Nigerians were not surprised by reports that one of the mobsters involved in the murder of Deborah is a Nigerien. Our national security is already compromised by the fact that we have foreigners with our voter cards and national identity cards. And when they commit crimes, they will easily sneak back into their countries and lie low. We feel more relaxed with these foreigners than with another fellow Nigerians. As a result, these foreigners take advantage of our over-trusting attitude to kill us.
