Wetin Man Do Man

Never knew she was a ghost. MAN INHUMANITY TO MAN.

His landlord sent him and his family packing because he could not renew his house rent. He then applied for a loan from the manager of the company he was working for, but the loan was not approved. He contacted the influential man in his community but could not find help. He then called his relatives on the phone, but no one helped him.

He went to Facebook and posted, seeking help, but the only thing he got was: 2likes and 0 comments. He became frustrated and sent 120 messages to friends on his contact list, asking them for support of N100,000. Unfortunately, only ten people responded to the message. Six out of the 10 said they had nothing to give. Only one out of 4 people gave him N20,000, but the rest kept apologizing and eventually stopped picking up his calls. The landlord locked the house!

His family was thrown out and left at the front door of the house with their belongings. He became more frustrated! He went everywhere in search of help but could not find one until nightfall. As he made more effort in the dark, looking for a solution, a truck ran over him and killed him instantly.

The next day, news of his death spread everywhere. His Facebook friends made 2220 posts on his wall, mourning his death and expressing their admiration for him. The landlord immediately ran to open the door for his family to go in to receive mourners. The influential man who earlier refused to help him took some food items and groceries to the family to cook for the mourners. Preparations for his burial began later and his friends, who formed a committee, raised N1,200,000 through donations to feed sympathizers that would be coming from different places. His co-workers also raised N300,000 to collect booths, chairs, and other items.

Where Is Our Humanity? WHAT IS THIS THAT WE PRACTICE IN THE NAME OF RELIGION? WHY DO WE HELP THE DEAD AND NOT THE LIVING? Is this what our religions taught us to do? Let's rethink and focus on being each other's keepers for the sake of humanity.
