”On Sunday I met an incredibly courageous young boy, his name is “Tete,” he’s the 9-year-old son of a University of Abuja Professor , Bassey Ubom, kidnapped last week at UNIABUJA Staff Quarters. Tete walked hundreds of kilometres in the wild, drank water from the same pond as cattle, was separated from his loving mother at gunpoint before he was eventually “rescued” last week. This is the story of little kids and adults in today’s unsafe and insecure Nigeria mismanaged and misgoverned by morons!”
