They Are Killing Us

I don’t know when next I will post on here again. But things just got really bad over here. I’m crying as I’m typing this.

The government gave the order to soldiers to kill the innocent protesters. They killed them. They literally took guns and shot at the peaceful people who were protesting and singing the national anthem. All we want is to stay alive. We aren’t even protesting against lack of food, or the fact that we don’t have light yet we pay light bill, or the fact that our education is a game they play for leisure, or the fact that youths graduate and have no jobs. We aren’t even protesting against the heinous crimes these politicians commit with corruption. We are protesting for life. We just want to freaking live. We want to be alive. Even if we don’t get the basic things we need. We want to live. And yet they killed our brothers and sisters who stayed out all day to make them hear our voice. They killed them in cold blood. They came with guns and heavy machinery when all we had were cardboard placards and our voices. I’m crying. I don’t know what else we are going to do. There have been massacres, they are raping girls, going from door to door and taking innocent people. All because we decided to fight for our right to life. They killed people’s children. The youths are dying. So many are dead already. And they are still killing. Peaceful protesters. I don’t know when it will be my turn. I’m so scared of my own country right now. These people vowed to protect us, yet they are killing us like animals.

They have failed us. The government has failed us. They are killing us. We don’t know what’s going to happen next. I’m scared. Everyone is scared. People have run indoors and can’t come out. This is supposed to be our country, our home, our safe haven. Instead the people we voted into power are killing us like we are animals. Our lives mean nothing right now. I’m heart broken. I’m devastated. I’m watching videos of the army shooting at the protesters while they were singing the national anthem and holding the Nigerian flag. Yet they shot at them. They have stained the flag with blood. It is very very heartbreaking. I can’t stop crying. They are the real animals.

Please pray for us. Pray for Nigeria because that’s all we have now. They are killing us. They are killing us. Please tell them to stop killing us. Our lives matter. They might shut down the internet at any time so we can’t continue sending the world messages. If this happens, you are all we’ve got to tell our story. Please we need you. Don’t stop speaking out for us. We need the world right now. We just want to live. Please tell them to stop killing us😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭. Help us. I’m scared for my life and my family and friends. We aren’t safe anymore. I don’t feel safe anymore.
