Now, face the music: Police arrest woman over Boko Haram Facebook comment

by Stanley Azuakola

Be careful what you type on Facebook, big brother is watching. Mrs. Afolakemi Mojisola Adeniyi, 23, mother of one and divorced. Apparently, she doesn’t think highly of her ex-husband. That’s the conclusion to make when one considers a recent stunt she pulled on her ex-husband.

Last week, Afolakemi put up a picture of her ex-husband, Alfa Umar Gobir, on popular social media site facebook, and wrote the following words underneath: “This is one of the Boko Haram any time you have contact with him, bomb him.”

Unaware of what his ex-wife had done, Umar was surprised when he began receiving calls from friends asking him why he decided to join the deadly sect. He consistently denied, saying that they were mistaking him for someone else, but more and more calls came, until one of them asked him to go and check Facebook. “I was shocked when I saw my picture on the social networking site,” he said.

He immediately went to Ipaja where his ex-wife lived with her parents and confronted her. Unperturbed, she told him that she posted the picture because he had told her that she and her son would die. Her parents however pleaded with him to let it go.

But his ex-wife was not satisfied. She went back on the facebook site a few hours later and posted another one which read: “Am nt regrtn of d pic upload by me 2 any1.”

At that point, Umar reported the case to the policemen of the Ipaja police station, who arrested his ex-wife and detained her for questioning. Her only response was that he said she and her son would die.

The Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Ipaja Police Station, Titiladayo Segun, after listening to the both of them, advised Afolakemi and her parents to go and beg Umar for forgiveness because of the little child they have, adding that with the evidence before him there is no way she would not go to jail should the complainant insist on going to court.

Meanwhile Umar is still undecided on whether he would charge his ex-wife to court.
