"I’m now calling on all Nigerians to come to help me as I have no one to assist me. Please, I don’t want my life to end like this."

"He should call those who always send them an errands for assistant, why are u seeking help from people ur government sent you to work against."

"The Nigerian army and the Nigerian government should do the needful and take good care of him and his family. He is a soldier and a Nigerian. That should be the right thing."
