We are NOT a nation of barbarians. We CAN follow due processes – D’banj

As more Nigerians continue to speak out against the murder of the four (3 identified) UNIPORT undergraduate students, Dbanj, Nigeria’s Pop icon, has added his voice to the growing list of eminent Nigerians that have already spoken.Yesterday, MI Abaga blogged his feelings on the tragedy and today, the kokomaster has aired his very thought provoking and passionate view as a Youth Ambassador and as a Nigerian.

 

They were my brothers…and yours.
Four days ago, I woke up to yet another unspeakable tragedy.
Four young men, all undergraduates, brimming with great dreams, unfulfilled aspirations and a promising future were killed. To express the depth of my pain and shock at their murder is impossible. And understanding how events could have degenerated to this level is truthfully beyond me.

Lloyd, Ugo, Tekana and Chidiaka
Four promising young men whose lives were interwoven in one way or the other with yours and mine.
I mourn deeply with the families of these young men because this is OUR collective loss. They were our colleagues, our classmates, our neighbors, our brothers… our friends.
We are NOT a nation of barbarians. We CAN follow due processes and procedures. We MUST fight together as ONE NATION to ensure that Justice as a whole is served, and as a PROCESS, is duly followed-ALWAYS.
We can only try to make meaning of this senseless tragedy by ensuring that this WILL not happen again, by affirming that the pursuit of justice does not in any way entitle any of us to the willful elimination of other people’s lives and by ensuring that we, as youths, do not destroy the honorable mantle placed on us as the future of our nation, by eliminating our present.
Aluu 4 and Mubi 40, Rest In Perfect Peace.
God Bless Nigeria
