What You Can Do: Support Kaduna Relief Project

Mission To Nandu In today's Nigeria there is an escalation of attacks by Fulani herders against predominantly Christian communities in the middle belt region. Bishop Tula The Anglican Bishop of Bauchi, Musa Mwin Tula, once said “The conflict between herdsmen and farmers has existed for a long time. But the menace in recent times has jumped from a worrisome itch in the north to a cancerous disease, spreading throughout the country, claiming lives and threatening to spiral into a monster.” Attacks on farming communities tend to follow a similar pattern. The Fulani will use young cattle herders to scout a village. These children will speak to local people, ascertaining whether villagers are armed and where any weapons are kept. The Fulani will send a ‘warning signal’ to the village 1-2 weeks before the attack. The insurgency begins with about 50-100 Fulani herders shooting outside the village. They shout “Allahu Akbar” and attack homes of pastors, communit

See Me See Trouble!

Ok here is how the story goes. I thought hard to come up with a tribute for my wife on her birthday. Little did I know that I will incur the wrath of Uncle B, my kinsman. We had done a photo shoot to commemorate our fourteenth year anniversary. It was the perfect picture. By midday I had five missed calls from Uncle B. When I finally got through to him, he bellowed-  ' I realize you don't know who you are. I am offended that an African man of your repute would lower yourself to such depths as to bend the knee in front of your wife and do up her shoes for her ." I could not believe my ears. I respectfully asked Uncle to stop. I told him I would call him later in the day as I was at work. How should I respond to him? A friend asked me to refer him to an article written by Dayan Masinde, a Nairobi based Kenyan artist titled:  "When an African man loves his woman… So many African men are hurting their women in the name of “African culture”. So many wrongs in

Fulani Attacks In Nigeria Re-explained - The Need To Conquer

Charred Remnants Of A House in Nandu Village -March 2019 In Middlebelt Nigeria, it has become the norm for tens of thousands to be forcibly displaced, with properties, crops and livestock worth billions of Naira destroyed, at great cost to local and state economies. 4 am. March 16 2019- Fulani herdsmen invaded Nandu Village in Sanga LGA Kaduna State Nigeria, killing 10 including children. They set 30 homes ablaze and made sure their harvested crops where charred. Motor bikes and grinding machines belonging to the villagers were also not spared. It seemed they wanted to ensure the villagers were completely paralyzed and full of fear to attempt returning home. The morning after, the villagers who ran for their dear lives returned to estimate the damage. Tears flowed as the loss was irreparable. Innocent children were amongst  the casualties. A mother lost 3 children and would not be consoled. She is currently nursing a bullet wound to her chest. Th

An Angry Pupil, The Commissioner For Education And The Scapegoat

Healing Hands Inc Program Manager, Charles Okwa visiting Okotie-Eboh Primary School 1 Sapele Delta State Commissioner for Basic Education Admits: " It is not humanly possible to address the infrastructural needs of all the schools at the same time ".  It took a shameful scandal to expose the burden that the Barrister has been carrying for the past three years. The learned gentleman is the embattled Commissioner in the Delta State Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education. He recently visited Sapele in an attempt to douse the flames of disgust set off by a seven year old pupil of Okotie-Eboh Primary School 1 Sapele, Miss Success Adegor. Back Breaking is indeed to be adduced from his recent statement: " there are 1,125 public primary schools and 465 public secondary schools in Delta State, it is not humanly possible to address the infrastructural needs of all the school at the same time, pointing out that “what we do is to attend to them (the schools) in phases
