We showed you VIDEOS AND PICTURES OF CHILDREN, WOMEN AND MEN, BUTCHERED IN THE ONGOING GENOCIDE IN SOUTHERN KADUNA.— GENOCIDE IN SOUTHERN KADUNA (@savndaniel) August 4, 2020
WE RISKED OUR LIVES, WENT INTO THE BUSH SCOUTING FOR DEAD BODIES.
IS THE LIVES OF THOSE BOMBED IN LEBANON MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE LIVES IN SOUTHERN KADUNA?
It is saddening and HYPOCRITICAL that this same you has REPEATEDLY ignored the ONGOING GENOCIDE IN SOUTHERN KADUNA.— GENOCIDE IN SOUTHERN KADUNA (@savndaniel) August 4, 2020

What happened in Beirut is a tragedy!— Man of Letters. (@Letter_to_Jack) August 4, 2020
But Bashir, did your heart shatter for the Christians in southern Kaduna where scores have been brutally killed and scores badly injured in the past month?
Pray for Lebanon and ignore the people dying brutally in the country you serve? https://t.co/qvDa5IpPWD
A Nigerian that cares more about Pop Smoke (whoever that is), than about Boko Haram killing soldiers and the massacre in Southern Kaduna. If we don't care about our own issues, why exactly do we think the govt will? https://t.co/jPaI3ob0je— FitMedic 🇳🇬 (@FEMMY466) August 5, 2020
Southern Kaduna for months with scores slaughtered it didn't break their hearts or force them to deploy army and police for security but for Beirut yesterday they cried with broken hearts all over the TL. Hypocrites.— Raymond (@IamTheIroko) August 5, 2020
