Nigerian singer and one time public office aspirant, Banky W, has taken to his twitter to lament the spate of killings and insecurity that has bedeviled Nigeria in recent times.
“So much bad news in Nigeria every day… we’ve become numb to it. If it’s not murder and kidnapping, it’s unrest and people unfit for office calling the shots. It’s like we are in an abusive relationship with the country we love. It’s exhausting. It’s draining. It’s depressing.” Banky wrote in a tweet.
Banky was commenting after a rather gory clash between motorcycle riders and members of the NURTW at the Iyana-Iba-Ojo, Lagos State. Reports have it that lives were lost in the clash, while speculations of an ethnic clash between the Yorubas and Hausas hold sway too.
Banky had run for elective position in the 2019 elections but didn’t win the position he vied for.
