WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE

Posted by Oyinlola Sobowale on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 in , | 7 comments
Who are these people?

Warlords or dumb thugs?

Joy dashers. Dream killers. Breath hackers.

Damn blood suckers!

The news are chilling; who still walks freely in these cities?

Adamawa. Borno. Kano. Yobe. Now Jos! How many more 'bloods' before they are stopped.

Stopped as in cut off; not locked up till a new army arises then demand for their freedom by holding more states to ransom!


Oh! What has gone wrong?

Nation defenseless. People unprotected.

Tear drops…I can’t think no more

The Cock Crowed, The shimmers of the morning light broke the darkness…I turned and stretched,
took a deep breath and smiled. Woke up with expectations, said a prayer thanking God for the gift of a new day filled with hope.

I kissed my wife and kids goodbye knowing for sure that I would be home for dinner…

I was so sure…

But between 3:00 - 3:25 pm

Everything changed…

I now lay lifeless in a morgue with other bodies who had left home with the same expectations of returning back to family…


Who will bring us back to take away the pains we have caused our loved ones?

Will we continue to water the grounds of freedom with our blood?

Will someone speak up and expose the men behind these mess?

Will the poor masses continue to pay with their blood for a selfish politician’s ambition?

Our blood cry out…who will be courageous and speak up?

I see cowards on the social media and other news networks taking advantage of the situation to settle a political score…


Have our lives become political tools too?

Don’t do the hash-tags for me…ACT!

Do something to save this country

We are no longer here but you are…watered the grounds of liberty with our blood

Where’s next?

    Wrong amalgamation from the outset. There is North and South Korea. There is North and South Sudan.........what is Nigeria waiting for?

  4. These people died for no reason, innocent. It's better this country divides than for innocent people to keep loosing their lives for no reason. May God help us

    You see Lola.. the above line got me bad bad.. I mean I literally froze in my thoughts outta sadness.. How much more?! How much Blood?! Who is safe.. Who is not?! Omo! I cant even think of a response.. This post hit me bad!

    This is what I call writing.. The ability to draw out emotions from the base of a man.. From his soul.. Now this is what I call writing. Weldone to the Author.. I duff my hat for him.
