My heart breaks as I write this. I’m struggling to put my feelings into words. There is no way I can just move on as normal by paying a blind eye to this. I never expected it to get to this height. Slave trade in 2017.
This hits home as a Nigerian. I don’t know why there isn’t enough news coverage about it. I can’t come on here and ignore the plight and pain of my people. Regardless of colour, aren’t we all supposed to be God’s creation? Didn’t God make colour for a reason? Why can’t we just see each other as one? Well if that is too much to ask, how can a human being be sold?
In 2017, it’s sad to know that as I write this, my people are being sold for 400 dollars in Libya. Tears roll down my cheeks as I am trying to visualise this scene.
“Get over slave trade that happened years ago” some say. Slave trade of a truth never ended. Just like racism, it’s been masked and institutionalised.
Aren’t we all human beings? Aren’t we all?
Well some say prayer is all they can do. However in addition to prayer, I am putting this on here for my friends to see. Just so you know that as free as you are living, a fellow human being is being auctioned right now.
I would appreciate it if you could raise awareness too the way you can. Just so, the relevant authorities can act and act quick.
And also, spend a minute to say a prayer. That this heart wrenching act will stop and that there will be confusion in the camp of the perpetrators of this act.🙏🏾
