  1. Hi, Estella,
    Well done for a fantastic work you undertook on the 22nd May 2010. No doubt you are a worthy ambassador of your native home. I will try and forward some of the most horrible pictures of the masacre at some villages in Plateau State. These pictures were too bad to be hosted on our website that is why we left it out please.

    Sorry for sending you the video of my Director – Benedicta a bit late this all as a result of our poor internet facilities.

    Thanks and God Bless.
