So Far Genevieve Nnaji & Tiwa Savage Are The Only Celebs Remembering Victims Of Yola Bomb Blast. Have Nigerians Become Desensitized To Terror Attacks In Our Country?

Amstel Malta Brand ambassador, Genevieve Nnaji

Yesterday afternoon (Nov. 17) a bomb went off at a market in Yola, Northeastern Nigeria, killing 32 people and 80 wounded. As at the time of publishing this story no one had claimed responsibility for the attacks but it is not far-fetched to blame it on terror group – Boko Haram.

While many celebrities have largely stayed quiet about the Yola attacks on social media unlike last weekend when everyone was Tweeting and Instagramming #PrayForParis, one has taken to her page to remember the victims of the unwarranted terror attack in Yola.

About her trip to the IDP camp, Kae said

Yesterday I had the opportunity to visit an IDP camp in Abuja where many of the #bringbackourgirls came to. I remember seeing the #bringbackourgirls movement on social media but seeing it in person was a much different experience. I was able to listen to this mothers story of her journey from Northern Nigeria. It was very heartbreaking to hear and to see their living conditions. She said when it rains they have no choice but to stand and there is little to no work for her husband. I told her I admire her for her strength and I will pray for her and her family everyday. This was a very humbling experience for me-I cried at the thought of ever complaining about anything in life. It is unfortunate but I know God will protect them. We can not save the world but we can take small steps to help #WithLove
