‘I prayed bitterly with a broken heart that all of them will suffer the same fate, I mean all and no exception. God will punish them all for the trauma they caused my family, the suffering.
‘They cut the life of my brother and his family short and still stressed the life out of us including our pocket. We know the length we went, including the lawyers involved before they even look at us.
‘I only pity the citizens fighting for this wicked politicians, they love no one. Nigeria is not a place to live, it is death zone looking for who to kill.
‘I never know I will someday post this kind of heartbreaking pictures on my wall. Emeka Nwannem and his family are gone forever.
‘Their generation wiped off the surface of this earth because of a use….less government, Nigeria happened to us.
‘My brother and his family would have been alive enjoying their lives today if they were in another country, but Nigeria cut their lives short. A prayer warrior and his family is gone.
‘An evangelist and his family are no more. Our pastor and Gods own servant gone with his family.
‘It was a festival of weeping that I can’t control myself but keep asking God why? I have never felt this terrible and pained all through my life. I miss you Bro. Farewell.’
