WHERE CAN WE FIND A HOME?

What happened in Jos, Plateau State Capital North Central Nigeria, was share wickedness, Barbaric and the height of man’s inhumanity to man, human lives butchered and burnt, houses burnt and demolished and children orphaned. The trauma will take a long time in healing.

Though, I lost my home, office and some other valuables thank God for life, that am still living. I suffered a minor shock as a result of what I lost but am up on my feet now, squatting with a friend at Rukuba road in Jos so are many others.

Presently, over forty (40) camps of displaced persons have been identified by the Plateau State Relief Emergency Committee; a lot still need to be done. You can come to our aid as soon as possible.

We cannot carryout what we sworn and love to do, due to our present state, please come to our aid.

I want to thank all those who wrote in and called to ask of our well being and send sympathy messages; we thank you all for your care and love.

For now we cannot be reached through our office address until further notice. To reach us please call: +2348036467133, +2347086344099.

Thank you in anticipation.

It is well my brother

Dear Kingsley,

I read the gory tales of happening in Jos, it is barbaric and condemnable. I really thank God that you came out of it unhurt and pray that God touches the heart of those bent on throwing pandemonium into our existence.

Telephone Conversation

I had a telephone conversation with Kingsley from Lagos to Jos, he is perfectly alright and I promised to speak with him again, so bad that is all I can afford, but he is in perfect shape.

Dear Kingsley,

I read the terrible event that happened in Jos it is really very miserable .First of all thanks God that you are out of harm's way. This act is dreadful, I think those people who do such malevolence deeds don’t have any religion because no religion appreciates such offense .My prayers are with you dear brother may God bless you and help all of those who are victims of this awful event.

prayers,

Dearest Kingsly, I am

Dearest Kingsly,

I am saddened to hear of the violence in Jos and I pray for your safety as well as your brothers and sisters in this region. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, but I thankful that you were spared. Please keep us updated on the situation. As the conflict is not familiar for many of our members, I also ask that you provide some background for us so that we can better understand the situation and help brainstorm solutions for securing your people. I feel that I cannot always rely on foreign news agencies to report the truth - but I can trust you as a brave voice and our brother here on PulseWire - World Pulse's community newswire.

My thoughts are with you,
Jade

We are with you...

Dear Kingsley,

I am so thankful that you have survived this violence, and are here, willing to share the story and news with us.

When I first heard of this violence in Jos in the news, I wondered about the PulseWire community, and if anyone from here was affected. It makes me tremble to think what you've endured. I struggle to understand the situation, and hope that you can offer us an update, or some background information.... Nigeria is on my mind very much these days.

Through your eyes, we can try to get a clear picture, and offer our supportive ears, hearts, eyes, and voices. We are with you. Thank you for being here, and being brave to hold onto hope and not despair.

In peace,
Scott
