Every day on the Nigerian Internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we read their rants, opinions, perspectives on political and social issues, etc. Sometimes, they are just downright ridiculous. We make it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.
Here are the ones we saw today:

Be patient, the Canada that you are rushing to isn’t going anywhere.
I have resigned my membership of Our Mumu Don. I no longer have confidence in the leader of the movement, Charly Boy. He betrayed the cause while I was away in prison and compromised with the oppressors. Thank you.

What Amber did was cruel & unforgivable, but the fact remains that men are more likely to be the abusers of women (& men) than women are to be the abusers of men.
Amber’s actions do not put the abusive tendencies of women on equal grounds with the abusive tendencies of men.
