Dear times magazine ,
Shekau is not influential in my country, the basis of
this statement and ranking amongst the most popular
positive great Nigerians you mentioned in that list
makes it even more difficult for me to understand,
how would you call a man who has killed over 15,000
of my people as influential ? How would you call a
man the world has called mad influential ?
This is a man whose image has been generally of
terrible reckoning and the you call him influential ? I
don’t understand the basis for that, if you wanted a
list of most influential wicked terrorists in the world, if
shekau tops that list, I would never have any
problems with that, I would understand if you
compiled a list filled with members of ISIS, alshabab
and other terrorist groups we Nigerians would
Nigerians have converged together as one to hate this
creature, our people have come together to make
sure we normalize this situation. You put up some
positive Nigerians on this list, like Our Baba, Obi
Ezekwesili, we thank you for this, but why Shekau or
what ever pseudonym he chooses to be called is on
this list is what I still find very hard to understand.
Please times magazine don’t give this lunatic of a
man any international recognition he doesn’t deserve,
that’s the basis of their ill killings, they want
worldwide coverage, they want the world to know
about them, by putting them in a list like that makes
their propaganda message more pronounced, think
about a little child who is being taught to be a
terrorist somewhere in Iraq, Iran or Libya, do you
know what they have to say to him now?
Hi Habeeb, do you see our brother terrorist in Nigeria?
He is among the 100 most influential people in the
world, do you want to be influential too someday in
the world? This is the right path! It gives them fuel to
someday be on this list! Please times, take him out of
this list and replace with a positive Nigerian!
