BAGA on my mind: A year ago, more than 2000 people were killed by Terrorist group Boko Haram in Baga, North-Eastern Nigeria. This year we hear of the Dasuki arms (corruption) ‘yams-sharing’ deal. Hmmmnnn, I’d like to think that I do not wish people evil and yet when a great crime has been committed, (against innocent children, men, women, soldiers), should we not ask ask the heavens to strike all those who benefited from our common wealth?

It was culled from his Instagram Page, reformatted and posted here (along with his picture), with his explicit permission. Thanks a lot Alexx! And yes, he confirmed his name is actually spelled with two ‘xx’. 🙂
‘Have you seen my Childhood? By Alexx Ekubo
I miss growing up, I miss the Good Old days and the things that made it the “Good Old days”. Simple things like the peace in my country. I’m from Abia State, born in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, bred in Lagos, schooled in Katsina and lived in Kano. I attended University in Calabar, in Cross River State. I travelled the length and breadth of Nigeria without the fear of a bomb explosion or being kidnapped!
