    it’s so nice seeing citizens of a country coming together to defend their country…..I wish Nigerians could do the same. if CNN had described Nigeria same way (they have said worse about us) we would have had an APC v PDP senseless argument making the rounds on twitter. overlords (cashtivists or activist contractors) defending without logic…. blinded by loyalties that seem greater than the love for truth and the love for Nigeria….God help us.

    way to go guys, this so called Americans and the likes of them cannot just sit in the comfort zone of their homes and be writing shit about Africans. Enough is enough. with ISIS threat if they don’t watch America will also become a terrorist nation. rubbish!

    that was insulting, not just as a Kenyan but as an Africans. Did you know sometime back the same news network reported that a journalist was reporting from Nairobi, Nigeria?
    How does someone seriously think that Nairobi is located in Nigeria?
