Boko Haram

Bakwo Ademu 1973 (Abuja)

That says education is evil
Detest it
By killing, maiming
And destruction of persons.

Girl child, mothers and men
They kill watonly
Because they claim
That education is evil.

But how can education be
When these terrorists operate
Using Phones, guns, drug
All products of educational achievements.

Boko Haram
A lier you must be
For your mission is
Just to destroy humanity.
