“I am ever grateful to Chief Mike Ozekhome for being instrumental to the release of Chiwetalu Agu after his unjust and illegal arrest by a repressive regime that celebrates Sheikh Gumi for promoting terrorist bandits and denigrates Agu for expressing his freedom of thought via his dressing.”
“I hope one or two social media based skit artists can see that our collective freedom is bigger than the small change they make from Instagram.”
“Stop thinking of what Instagram and social media can do for you. Instead think of what you can use Instagram and social media to do for Nigeria.”
“We should be more committed to Nigeria’s freedom than to what we will eat. God bless you Mike Ozekhome SAN!”
