Don't worry about the PR. The fact of the matter being exposed by the documentary is something that needs to be addressed.

The govt, people and "prophets" of Akwa Ibom need to look at themselves in the light of the 21st century. About 150 years ago, Mary Slessor was in those areas, working against the killing of twins.

Did you see that idiot of a man brandishing cutlass and threatening to butcher the child with it.

It was really heart wrenching for me as I watch the man and child walk away from the village and her family.
How can people be so cruel to a child in that manner. Ignorance is really very very dangerous.
