The singer also took time out to get stories from soldiers fighting in the war against Boko Haram. What got fans' attention is the heart wrenching piece she wrote yesterday, July 11, 2016 of an Xray showing an anti aircraft bullet lodged in a soldiers throat.
"I had long conversations with soldiers about how they got wounded in battle.They told me how grateful they were to be alive, some of their colleagues weren’t as lucky.
I also got to speak with medical personnel, on the uniqueness of their work in a war against terror.
I’ll share all their stories here and start by introducing Soldier X, who I never met, but made a photograph of his Xray .An anti aircraft bullet, big and strong enough to tear through the titanium body of an airplane, was lodged in his throat, and for some reason, it didn’t blow his head off, this soldier lived through his surgery and got to take the removed bullet home as a reminder. This is a wicked wicked war! Why would anyone chose weapons made to attack war planes and use it on a fellow human at close range, even in war there should be rules .
Lieutenant Ologodo told me something really important, that if you don’t believe in God, working here will make a convert out of you, the frequency of witnessing the darkest of evil deeds, along side what can only be miraculous, will open your heart somehow. This is such a brutally wicked war".
