We know right? But why do you lock your gates or the door to your room?
Its also God who gave them the wisdom and know-how to produce this.
Its just the same BS ppl say that God is the healer and I'd be like ofcus yeah, I never claimed to be the healer, i only use the wisdom of God to bring about healing.
Abeg let us not let religious radicalism draw us further aback. Africa is light years behind already.
