“And this idiot @BashirAhmaad why are you not tweeting about this dumb police. I grew up in the north like you but you don’t have any feelings and I wish you everything that’s happening to the average citizen. I really pray it happens to you or one of your relations so you understand how we feel.”

“Part of the price of being a public servant; anyway, I wish my family, your family and family of every Nigerian well. As you prepare to release your new single, all the best! #smile.”
