Nigerians react to photo of little boy drawing a gun on the wall in Yobe


Nigerians are currently reacting to this photo of a little boy in Damaturu, Yobe state who was pictured drawing a gun on the wall.

Yobe is one of the most popular states being attacked by insurgent in NorthEast, Nigeria over the years.

A Kano-based lawyer, Bulama Bukarti, who shared the photo online, says that the photo describes what an average child is facing in the Northeast.

”My NCE teacher, Lawan Cheri, saw this boy drawing this on the wall of a neighbour in Damaturu. This tells you everything about the experiences of the children in the northeast. To stop transgenerational trauma, survivors must be properly treated and community healing promoted.”

See some of the reactions from Nigerians on Twitter.
